Gunnar's Neat  Stuff

August 17, 2019


New house almost complete (with the move to start sometime next week) - still here in Prince George.  A lot of guns, especially long guns, are now gone, although I still have some neat ones to get rid of, and 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!  






Here is a treasure trove of pistol/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! 

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

This shellplate is for the Dillon 450/550 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 450/550 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 :)

This shellplate is for the Dillon 450/550 progressive press in .223 and includes the locator pins you'll need. Also fits 204, 300 Blackout, .222, 380ACP, 38 Supercomp.  Brand new, $25 out the door :)

  This is the .45 Wilson Extended ejector so favoured by IPSC competitors in their 1911 pistols. Retiling from $30 up in the US, this one is $25, brand new, out the door :)

The heart of a proper 1911 accuracy tune, this Ed Brown match barrel bushing is usually drop in...$25 out the door!  Sold, Michael :)

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!  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:

Ever have a case rupture with your 1911?  Play around a bit with hot loads?  I do, and devised these .020" tempered stainless grip plates.  They fit under your stock grips and could save your hands.  Even feel better than standard grips - that tiny bit of extra width feels so good!  $20  mailed to you.

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...  

 This is an accessory rail for 1911's and really makes sense! This one is mounted with two screws that thread into the rail itself, not the very thin dust cover of the pistol.  Just drill two holes and mount it.  You can even take it off and all there is left are two small holes where they're hardly ever noticed.   Why didn't I think of this?  $30 - One left

  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 $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 is a 300 Short Mag! Can't return it so here's youir chance...  Landed Cost was over $100 - now $60 out the door :)

This wonderful barrel converts your .32 caliber too-short Beretta M1935 to a restricted-only 380 just over the 105mm mark.  The stock mags even work well!  Brand-new - I'll never use it - $320 out the door! Sold, Michael  :)

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/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 :)
