The higher than usual prices clearly show those are just there to be looked at, he has no real want or need to sell those machine guns.

I'd just about bet theres a good deal of post samples in there, IF that minigun is transferable they run over $200k and up. Parts kits and garwood 80% recievers are much cheaper if you catch my drift.

Funny thing about a DIAS, a coworker has one....his mother bought his father one before they got married in the 80's out of some mag. There 100% clueless that it was illegal, nor do they care.
Yeah that minigun was definitely a post sample. I don't doubt that some of them were, but most of them were pre '86.

I'm carefully searching for a DIAS...when i find a steel one for a reasonable price (not necessarily an amazing price, just not a grossly inflated one) that is in good shape and doesn't look like its going to self-destruct, I'm going to grab it. i really am wary of a RLL and I'd consider a RR, but I'd definitely prefer the dias if I had to just have one.

The really unfortunate thing is that I've been looking for a shop like this that has access to this type of inventory. I had hoped it was a place I could do business and that he could track one of them down, but after the way he treated me i don't think i'd spend a dime there despite the MP5N there that i love.
