This Has Now Officially Become A Fire Sale


A couple of days ago I filled-up my oil tank at a cost of almost $1000. I'll need to fill it again at least one more time this Winter. And, according to the heating contractor who came to clean and service my furnace, it needs close to $3000 worth of repairs. And the auger on one of my two pellet stoves won't feed the pellets so I have no heat in the back of my house. And I just purchased the first ton of pellets for $220 (I'll probably need another four tons before Spring). And on and on it goes. The serious cold weather has not even arrived and concern about how to keep warm is consuming a large part of my daily thoughts and worries, not to mention my budget. So gentlemen, I need to sell this stuff or I need to start burning it to keep warm. I hope you will excuse this self-indulgent rant, but I am sincerely at the end of my rope trying to survive in this cold, horrible state of New York with its sky-rocketing taxes and a flat-lining economy. Other than that, life is great! :)

READ THE FINE PRINT!

The first person to post here, “I'll take it”, gets the item requested. Please follow-up with a PM. Please don't use the e-mail address linked to my Gun Boards profile. I never check that account.

Payment

Payment by USPO money order only, but PayPal is also OK if you pay the PP fee or send it “discretely”.

Delivery

Shipping is paid by the purchaser. I will combine shipment of multiple items purchased to save the purchaser postage. For example, depending on which books are purchased, you could fit as many as six or eight of the smaller and thinner books in one US Priority Mail medium size flat rate box for only $11.35. So the answer is clear: buy as many books as possible and save a lot of postage money! :) Insurance, if desired and requested, is the expense of the Purchaser.

Condition

Please take a look at the photos. You'll see that just about everything I have is in very good to in some cases, virtually new condition. I am embarrassed to say that I have barely touched these books. The only handling they have ever received is being put-on and taken-off my library shelves. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask as all sales are final.






THANKS!

Orders & Medals Of Japan And Associated States
by James W. Peterson. Published in 1967. 110 pages. Soft cover.

Please not that unlike just about all my other books, which are in excellent to virtually unread condition, this soft cover book is in a very well used condition and at some point in the distant past it got wet. (I have owned this book for at least 25 years and it happened before I got it.) The cover is water stained and some of the pages (mostly the last ten pages or so) are a bit wrinkled or crumpled and have spotting. But it's not that bad and I would estimate that 90% of the pages are much nicer and much cleaner. Please see the photos. The book is complete and it's not falling apart. It remains a completely readable and usable example of a very scarce first printing. It's just not a pretty, library shelf example.

Saiga Skeleton Buttstock

This Dragunov style buttstock was made at the Izhmash factory in Russia and is an original factory option for the Saiga rifles and shotguns. The cheek piece can swivel upwards to raise the cheekweld for use with a scope or it can swivel downwards, lowering the line of sight, so that the iron sights can be used. Really a nicely made and nicely designed stock. This stock has the holes for the tang screws drilled. As new condition, dusty from sitting on the shelf. :) Never used and no shots fired.

(2) Crossbow Pistols and Arrows

Somehow in the course of wheeling and dealing and buying a lot of stuff from a gun show dealer who was going out of business, I found myself with these crossbows. They are virtually unused. I took them out of the packages and fired a couple of arrows. Please note that these are not toys and should not be used carelessly or given to children.
:tisk:The arrow went right through a watermelon and could definitely injure or kill someone.

Includes (9) used arrows and three sealed packs of (10) arrows each, for a total of 39. Each pack of arrows also contains a spare bow string and the tip attachment pieces.
