Well, I do like his rant on ebay, at least. They yanked an FN kit of mine in the same fashion and I did indeed give them hell...for all the good it did me.

Hmmm, $75.00 for an empty box...ok...

Not just an empty box, but one that belongs with a gun that is concurrently for sale. I've seen some places that split off mags from guns (most pistols come with two), then try to sell them back to you. I find this in a similar ethical vein.

At least his rant is somewhat righteous.

yup..they sure do.reminds me of what happened to me when I bought my russian made sks.I bought the rifle and slid it out of the box.checked the buttstock for the cleaning kit..not there?the guy says"oh,they dont come with cleaning kits..the cleaning kits are an accessory and Ill sell you one for an extra 15 bucks if you want one".funny..out slid a lil packing list with the gun that clearly showed it came with an cleaning kit.with this..I asked"really?"as I read off the packing list aloud to him.needless to say,I got the cleaning kit for free.

Ya think he might be offering the BOX ONLY for sale on ebay as advertising to get people interested in contacting him about the gun??

Just a thought.

No, since I didn't see an address listed at ebay and came on this by chance while looking for some grips for a PP I bought recently. The ebay rant was memorable enough that I recognized the username on GA.

But...but...I can't shoot anything with a BOX? What's the point of a BOX?

I want a GUN...not a BOX...
