  1. Prime LR300 Custom gun. (Ah, where does one begin:) Arguably among the nicest 'M4-style' airsoft rifle extant. Beautiful material, beautiful craftsmanship and obviously a work of passionate commitment by it's makers to 'get it right'. They do the real-steel version a real honor as the two are hard to tell apart, side by side (which led to problems as you will read). Like the Inokatsu M4 or Viper Tech rifles (which I own and thus can make the observation) the Prime kit is is simply dead-on realistic, so much so that it was hard to get it safely through Customs because of that realism and material fidelity (not to mention trademark/trade dress. Solid, aircraft-grade billet aluminium was used throughout. As many know, the base gun was predicated for use with AEG hardware. Therefore, the amount or work necessary to 'convert' the gun to a GBB was truly a daunting and, ultimately, magnificent feat. Initially, Daytona was not keen on taking the project on. But, given the subject matter and the fact that it would showcase DG's considerable skills in what is ultimately a small airsoft world community, and some other reasons, including germaine 'bragging-rights', Daytona agreed to produce two of the Prime guns using the Daytona gas engine, keeping one rifle for the company, ostensibly as a prototype design bed. About one year later - the project was completed (during which DG/Justin found themselves embroiled in some nasty third; party shenanigans that basically turned the company upside down and very nearly destroyed it). Fast forward: after said issues with Customs, wherein the rifle was seized on the grounds that it violated regulations against importation of restricted firearms (!) and an ensuing appeal action that would make grounds for a good book, Customs released the gun. The rifle is like new in perfect working order in both full, semi and safe modes. Sips gas but delivers appx 450fps at 110psi. Piece has perhaps 1000 shots through her and is basically still in break-in period (meaning it will just get even better performance with time/use)! The internals of the gun have been closely inspected and some untidy mill-finishing work was cleaned-up to ensure the mechanics of the GBB system are in superb operational state - after all, the world's only gas operated, blowback Prime LR300 deserves no less. The gun has never been fielded but she has made it to a number of events where she has generated lots of attention:) I kid thee not. Oh, almost forgot - take a look at the S/N of the gun... Link below. Until I clean out my inbox to make some room it appears I cannot take messages but feel free to send a email to my 'airsoft' email Addy at tangodown40<AT>gmail.com Prime LR300 w. DG blowback engine. https://imgur.com/a/swDIC Gunner79
  2. If still available, I'm interested. What type of work was undertaken with respect to the internal upgrades, if I may inquire? Any issues, past or present? Many thanks for any response regarding the above. Regards, Gunner79
  3. Sam. I have one. Bought brand new from EHA when they first came out. It's never worked well, from day one and is extremely rough on the shells. Also have appx twenty shells for her (about 10 are still brand new in sealed plastic packs of five each). Gun really needs the attention of a person who has shop skills and the time to go in and do some tuning, etc. I simply have no time to mess around with her any further. If interested, drop me a email at: Tangodown41 AT Gmail DOT Com My PM box is full and I need to go in and clean out older mail. Till then, best way to reach me is via email. Cheers, Gunner79
  4. Hi - very interested in purchase of the SVD scope. Bulletproof credit (but my inbox is jammed full from past sale/purchase related correspondence and needs to be gone through and pared down. Till then I can be reached At: tangodown41 'AT' gmail 'DOT' com Should you wish to communicate further re this potential sale please feel free to contact me at your convenience! Many thanks. Gunner79
  5. TO THE BOARDS' ADMINISTRATION/moderator: in connection with certain actions arising as a result of willful non-compliance by ASF member in posting airsoft items for sale via ASF'S 'commerce' section; accepting payment re same and then entering into a pattern of behavior that can only be construed as attempt to defraud Buyer of purchased items. After duly filing a complaint and request for investigation into the matter, PayPal quickly ruled in my favor re said claim. Funds were then refunded. Given the speed between filing of the claim and PayPal's favorable ruling it would appear evident that the Seller, in this instance 'BoomHeadShot32' either has a record of similar behavior or has otherwise been found to have engaged in unacceptable activities and/or less-than-reputable behavior in the past. Some folks need to straighten up and fly right. Whatever the problem is with regards to seller - 'Boomheadshot32' needs to be banned from this board or prohibited from future sales on or through ASF's board.
  6. Formal complaint filed w. PayPal. To Seller: You had more than ample time to contact me/return my (multiple) emails inquiring into the status of the adverted (and purchased) item. Instead - you simply ignored every-last-one sent. Have a great day, Mr. Vu.
  7. Am interested in acquiring the AIM replica PSO-1 Scope. My inbox is full and I have to find the time to weed out the superfluous messages - so, for now, I have to rely on email. If not too much trouble, I can be reached at: Tangodown41<AT>gmail.com Let's talk, if interested! Thx. Gunner79
  8. To those who may have been interested in purchase/or trade for this rifle. Seller and buyer (this writer) agreed on a price and the requisite amount was duly paid to Seller on December 13, 2016. Since that time, I received all of 1 email (which arrived only after I complained of Seller's apparent reluctance to answer a simple question as to when Seller could be expected to send out the rifle). I was informed that Seller was in the middle of a move and this was causing delays. This was six days ago and I have received no further communication from Seller. It's unfortunate that the Seller views so lightly his obligation to keep a buyer timely informed of events that would impact Seller's ability to ship a purchased item out (or neglect to make the buyer aware that Seller was in the middle of such an event, before accepting the funds. Whatever the case, it's now a situation that is rapidly approaching the unacceptable, inasmuch as this seller simply does not appear to give much concern to upholding his end of the transaction, now that he has custody of my funds (funny, how prompt his email responses were up to that point in time). Anyway, to anyone who had some passing interest in acquiring this piece (or anything else from this gentleman) - it's quite possible that you may want to consider yourself lucky that you did not get your wish. Should this state of affairs continue much further, PayPal will be contacted and a complaint will be put on file.
  9. Am interested. Will it take a m120 or M130 type spring (not absolutely necessary but a little extra output would always be nice). Still need to pare down my mailbox (which is full) so as to be able to send/receive PMs. If you like, I can be reached at the following addy: Tangodown41 AT gmail DOT com Many thanks.
  10. Or - try this email: Tangodown40 *AT* Comcast *DOT* net

  12. Interested! If available. My inbox is full and cannot receive add'l messages until I tidy it up. In the interim, I can be reached at: Todd.Bolinger<AT>bryancave.com Do let me know. Thanks! T. Bolinger
  13. KHIV, I will commit to purchase of your used WE M1911, with adverted accessory components for $150. I also wish to purchase the KWA M11 'ingram/Cobray' package. In addition, I would like to discuss purchase of the listed TM 'select fire shotgun, patterned after George A's prototype auto shotgun of the very early 1970's. Please feel free to check my references under 'Gunner79' at many of the better known Airsoft Boards (particularly ClassicAirsoft.org, among others). I am pretty well-regarded in the airsoft community at large, as a serious collector of a large portfolio of rare, exotic and/or one-off airguns. I posted my contact email address in the post I made earlier today. ping me if you still wish to sell. Regards, G79
  14. Greetings Gunner calling, Wanted to talk to you re purchase of a number of your adverted guns, but my PM box is full until I read my lapsed registration (and get off the pot and delete some very old messages). Till then, I can be contacted at: tangodown41<AT>gmail.com I'm am quite seriously interested in multiple items, including the TM AK shotgun and the Ingram, WE M1911 items Cheers, G79
  15. Gunner calling, Wanted to talk to you re the P90 but my PM box is full until I read my lapsed registration (and get off the pot and delete some very old messages). Till then, I can be contacted at: tangodown41<AT>gmail.com Ping me if interested. Cheers, G79
  16. GD Marv - your still around! Probably don't remember me - it's been years now but I purchased three of your Kwa SR-16 type builds for my collection waaay long ago! All of them sweet rifles and ALL of them STILL in my collection (which, by itself, is testament to how nice those builds were/are). One of them, a KWA SR-15 'DMR', has literally been one of the sweetest Aeg '16s I have ever fielded. Period. Anyway, I have a KWA KV in superb condition with all sorts of goodies. She too is one of my 'collection' pieces, though I'm giving some thought to releasing her as of late. How much are you looking to acquire one for? My mailbox is full and eventually, I'll re-up my subscription (and clean out that which I no longer want to archive). Go ahead if you want and send me a email at: tangodown41<AT>gmail.com Nice 'seeing you' around Marvin - I thought you got out of Airsoft years back (recall you were starting to focus on RS)! Regards, Todd B. (also known as Gunner79)
  17. And... Deal done. Funds transferred via PayPal for that beautiful LCT AK and it's accessories. Thanks Mr. P. (Rubisco) for your generosity and professional conduct. As is usual, your conduct is beyond reproach - a true Class Act in this collector's book!;) Was great meeting up with an old buddy again and talking with ya. As in past instances, it was really nice doing business with you and I hope to 'see you around' again amigo;) Gunner79 (Todd B.)
  18. Greetings, am interested in LCT AKM. If possible can you email me at: Tangodown41<AT>gmail.com My mailbox is currently full until I re-up my subscription and then go through and weed out the less important paat messages (ugh). Thanks much. Gunner79
  19. Just noted this post. Still looking for a Prime LR300? Gunner79
  20. That helps greatly, while I do not have an emphasis on AEG guns, what I have in my (400+) gun collection IS of high quality and/or high-end customization. My PM box here is full atm until I re-up my subscription; as such (and also due to better/more efficient ability to send/receive photos) would it be possible to use my email to assist with any potential transaction? In the same vein, I'd love to see more pics of your gun (don't worry Re tank, regulator and/or airline material - I have plenty of regs, valves, tanks already:). Email is: tangodown41<AT>gmail.com Be happy to show references. Also. pretty well known at many boards (particularly Classicairsoft.org - my home away from home;) As a search under 'gunner79' will attest to. Many thanks and hope to hear from you! Regards, Gunner79
  21. A nice package. Perchance would you be interested in a high-end trade. I've a few nice pieces from my modest collection that might be of interest. But need to know if your preference is Classic rarities or more 'modern' weaponry (P*, DG, etc.) as that would assist me in presenting which guns would be offered. Regards, Gunner79
