Gunnar's neat stuff!

November 16, 2019

 To bring you up to date:


 Still here- barely! Been off for the last few weeks with what I first figured was just a  cold - Not! I seem to be pretty well recovering now, although not quite there yet  :)


New house now complete (with the move pretty well completed) - still here in Prince George. We'll be using my cell number - 250-565-7605 - as we're not going to bother with the land line. 


I still have some neat long guns, and have some ex-prohibs to re-register and sell (with longer barrels). S&W's, Lugers.. I am keeping this website going for the foreseeable future, gotta have something to do!  Look for deals, still a lot of cool stuff here, including a 1913 Erfurt Luger prohib ...




2 year old RCBS Grand 12 gauge progressive press on Ultramount by Inline Fabrication. Retail $860 USD    I have loaded only 700 shells with it.

Just under 6000 primers  $180 USD

4000 Wads $150 CDN

11-25lb bags of #8 magnum shot  $770 CND

Once fired AA hulls and a bag of Remington hulls............. Maybe 2000
or so in total. I'm not counting them Lol. 

The whole works will go for the price of the lead shot - $800.  And talk to me about the powder, too..

Here is a treasure trove of pistol and shotgun powder!  Alliant American Select, 13 pounds total, all unopened, mainly meant for shotgun shells, but marvelous in target handgun loads.  Clean-burning, mild recoil, a great powder in 38 Special right up to target 44 Magnum loads.  Especially liked in 45 ACP, where it has the least recoil and smoke experienced, easily making Major..  $26  per lb! 

Shoot a P1 or P38 Walther?  A factory parts kit!  This is so nice to have as they can blow off the firing pin cover if not on right.  In tall grass that can be a problem!  Also new springs and a new ejector - as well as a new front sight (they CAN fly off, you know) $40 out the door !

These J Frame 5-shot Dade speedloaders are as-new and were my decided favourite during my revolver competing days.  Easy to load and fast to use, now no longer made - $10 each out the door!  Sold, David  :)

This lightly-used S&W Model 39 slide stop is a worthwhile addition to your spares kit - $25 out the door :)

These great-feeling Hogue grips are for the CZ-75 and all its brethren - great shape, uses the factory screws - $10 out the door!

  A competition steel one-piece guide rod for your 1911 - $46 retail - now $25 out the door :)

This is a brand new Wilson Combat extended (45) ejector for your 1911.  $40 retail, this is yours for $25 out the door :)

This an as-new Wilson 5" 1911 stainless full length guide rod with spring plug.  $30 out the door !  

And here's a lightly extended 1911 Tactical Mag catch that'll drop right in!  Much handier to use, and no screw-on button to hang up and make disassembly a pain.  $20 out the door:)  Also a lightly used Wilson extended slide stop  - $30 out the door!!

These Talley bases and rings (30mm) are for a post-64 Model 70 long action Magnum.  Lever Lock for fast removal of scope if needed. $100 out the door:) 

 Want to pamper your AR? Here is the Trigger-tech drop-in trigger kit that will transform your rifle! Adjustable, no creep, easy to install.  Retails for $300 before tax and shipping, brand new - now $249 out the door :)

This shellplate is for the Dillon 450 or 550 progressive press in 38Special and 357 caliber and includes the locator pins you'll need.  Brand new, $25 out the door :) 

This shellplate is for the Dillon 450 and 550 progressive press in 45ACP and includes the locator pins you'll need.  Of course, this also fits any of the 308-bases cartridges such as 30-06, 22-250, 25-06, 260, 270.  Brand new, $25 out the door :)

This shellplate is for the Dillon 450 or 550 progressive press in 40 S&W and includes the locator pins you'll need.  Also fits 10mm, of course :)  Brand new, $25 out the door :)

I have a couple of Thompson-Center Contender 10" barrels for sale.  With sights and lovely bores, they are in 22LR and 7mmTCU (7mm comes with dies and brass).  New these are $485 for the .22 - this one's $220 out the door! Now sold  :) The 7mm TCU (what a sweet caliber to shoot!) - $250 with dies and brass, out the door! 

A like-new Glock 45 (G21) magazine  - $35 out the door! 

2011 Stuff:

These brand new STI wide body magazine wells are machined aluminum and black anodized.  Well over $100 retail - now $60 out the door!

  This one is a new .45 STI 2011 mag, (126mmm, carry-sized) hicap blocked to 10.  No longer available in Canada, $100 - all in! 

  A pair of the justly-famous SVI 2011 45 mags, 126mm (carry-sized), blocked to 10 rounds.  These are like what Jean and I used for competition over 25 years and one of those guns saw over 130,000 rounds before we rebarreled it  :)  These are now selling new for $175 Canadian  - and well worth it!  $100 each - no  tax!  These can be taken apart for cleaning, too!

And Smith&Wesson pieces:

A brand new unopened Wolff recoil and firing pin spring set (factory strength) for the Model 4506 and all its 45ACP cousins.  $12 shipped anywhere in Canada. 

And, of course, 1911 stuff:

This indeed a rare find!  An original stubby grip safety off a 1911 (not a 1911A1) used but unaltered - $40...   These were often replaced as they had a tendency to pinch the web of a shooter's hand if using a high grip...

Here is a factory stock grip safety off a 1970's Colt Commander.  Factory stock, unaltered.  $20... 

This a stock wide spur hammer off a Colt 1911.  Hammer hooks etc. unaltered and show very little wear. A great find for your restoration...$60... SOLD  :) 

  These original Colt 1911 38 Super mags are 9 rounders, fitted with extended base pads, and since we're all using 10  rounders now, these are for sale.  Still make excellent IDPA or practice mags, and work very well with 9mm as well - $20 each...  some now gone but a few left...


The Dillon sizing die for the 357SIG comes in two versions - steel and carbide.  No need to tell you what's better!  Over $100 retail, this new  Carbide unit is now $50.   The steel dies in your set are OK, but easy to scratch, plus they need a lot more pressure on the lever :(   The carbide ones (I still lube the cases, with Dillon's spray lube) are effortless to use, and there's way less stress on the case - and they last forever...

This Benelli R1 rifle magazine holds 4 308 rounds and is new.  Great, except the rifle was a 300 Short Mag! Can't return it so here's your chance...  Landed Cost was over $100 - now $40 out the door :)

A few years ago EAA made some "Large Frame" Witness pistols based on the CZ75 but designed to work with 45 length rounds.  These mags are for the 9mm's and tough to find today.  As-new original, these are $10 each... 

And these are for the Large Frame 45's  - $10 each  


  Brand new Wolff recoil and firing pin spring for the Ruger P90  $8...

  This is a Ruger P85 to P90 recoil spring kit by Wolff - brand new, unopened  $8...

Hurray!  Got my Verifiers Number back!  It was phased out when I cancelled the Firearms Business Licence, and I had to reapply for a new number under my Gun Club.  Coming up - a few guns I had waiting for reverification as restricted - a couple  5" pencil-barrel Model 10 38 Special revolvers, a couple Model 39's, a Model 59, and more...

 Armco Machine & Plating has ceased operating as a business (although I will still be here clearing out a bunch of personally owned firearms and gear over the next few months).  And sometimes I'll be accepting a nice trade-in on something, so new stuff will show up  :) Watch for some interesting and neat stuff...  

My drop-in and visiting hours are still Wednesday from 1:00 to 3:00, plus Saturday 9-12 and 1-3. It has turned out to be a highlight of my week. As before if you're traveling from out of town we can make other arrangements :)
