The purpose of this forum is expressed in the Gunboards Header.

"One of the more interesting of the older rifle systems that are highly prized by collectors. If you want to talk Martini or any of its many variations this is your forum"

That’s what we are all about here. Talking about collecting Martini’s, building Martini’s, restoring Martini’s, shooting Martini’s and anything related.

But what we are not is a gripe board. We are not a customer service center.

If you wish to complain about a company or some business transaction this is not the place for it. The first place you should go if you have such a problem is the company. If you still do not have satisfaction, I suggest you contact an attorney.

If you buy a product and it meets the description the seller gives it, you have no complaint. If others got better than the description and you did not, but the item meets the description, you may be disappointed, but you have no complaint. If you come to this forum and complain it will be received as whining and treated as such. Whining is a personal attack. Personal attacks are not tolerated for any reason.

If you encounter counterfeit or fraudulent representation of Martini’s you may report that as warning to all. You will have to substantiate the claim. Just because you are unhappy with an items condition is not fraud. If you fail to substantiate your claim it may be considered a personal attack.

If you see a personal attack or have a complaint about the contents of a post click on the Report Post icon. The report post icon is the triangle with exclamation point in the lower left corner of each post. When you click on the icon the report post window will open. Enter some information telling me what is wrong with the post and why. Give me enough information so I can take action or at least decide if action is warranted.

If you see a personal attack and reporting the post is not good enough, send me an email.

Do not respond to personal attacks, report the post. If you respond and retaliate it may be treated as a personal attack and treated accordingly.

Please enjoy talking about your Martini’s here, but no whiners!!!

Very clearly posted in the board rules at the top of this board is this rule.

No Want To Buy (WTB) Want To Sell (WTS) Or Want To Trade (WTT) Ads Are Allowed. Use the Gunboards.com Trader for such postings.

This is a Gunboards rule, not my rule. I, as moderator must in enforce this rule. When this rule was established, I argued to allow only Martini's WTB, WTS or WTT trade here. I was over ruled. We were only allowed to have WTB for a specific part for a Martini. Nothing else.

If you post here requesting a valuation for a gun with the purpose or intent of selling you are in violation of Gunboard Rules and I must take action. Penalty points will be issued.

There is nothing wrong with asking for a valuations. But don't even suggest it is for the purpose of sale or trade.
