Gunnar's neat stuff!

November 21, 2020

 To bring you up to date:

We will no longer be accepting credit cards as payment, suggesting instead EMT or even mail.

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 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:)



This Aftec Extractor is absolutely the best 1911 extractor available!  Especially on open guns with various optics making reliable extraction problematic, this is the answer!  I have used these 38 super extractors on 9mm and 40 S&W, and that works quite well.  These retail for $110 plus tax and shipping.  Brand new - $60 shipped, no tax :)    

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!  

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

This shellplate is for the Dillon 450 and 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 :)

2011 Stuff:

These brand new STI wide body magazine wells are machined aluminum and black anodized.  Well over $100 retail - now $40 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, and legal for Standard Division), 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! 


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  

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 now 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 :)
