    FS Jungle Carbine 303

    Trademe withdrew my $1 Res listing because this is obviously an MSSA. I sent them a scathing email last night and their Firearms Policy manager phoned me this morning to discuss, result is that they will allow me to relist it.

    Thought I'd see if there's any interest here first.
    Open to trades also, 223 ammo, reloading kit.

    Here are the serial numbers I can find, Bolt number's 23L3897. The left receiver is No5MkI ROF (F) 10/44 D4803 Flash hider says M/470
    Will include 13 rnds of ammo if picked up

    Ahhhh, I did wonder what had happened to your listing. Obviously, they have employed a semi trained chimpanzee as their Firearms Policy manager. Note that I did say "semi trained" which means he knows which end to start at when peeling the banana, but not what "automatic" and "bolt" have in common.

    Sheeeeeeesh.
    It was a confusion of ideas between him and one of the lions he was hunting in Kenya that had caused A. B. Spottsworth to make the obituary column. He thought the lion was dead, and the lion thought it wasn't.

    Yeah it was a frustrating conversation to say the least, especially as he kept saying that Trademe policy is their own decision and not based on the Arms Act, then immediately after said that they restrict it because it's against the Arms Act.

    Was there a thread on here about someones 303 being withdrawn? I read it on one of the forums.

    Start a simple auction, things are going along nicely and then someone jumps in and gets carried away by making ridiculous offers they know we just can't match.

    A man may have to rob a bank if this carries on.
