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.
I was talking to a buddy the other days whose grandfather owned a tire shop in the early 80s late 70s. He had given a guy a great deal fixing his car etc and the next day the guy came back and asked him if he wanted to buy a crate(i think he said 4 in it) of BARs for $800. He turned it down at the time though.
