Has anyone ever seen a NPM carbine with a Saginaw barrel ? I purchased one recently and the seller failed to list in his auction that it is a SKY Ordinane import. Not happy about that. Seemed to be a legit business person, but not good about responding to emails? Mine is definitely a Saginaw. Today, I also found that the rear trigger housing connection lug on the right side was broken and brazed back together. He's gonna be getting this one back. Nothing I hate worse than a person who is deliberately deceptive.

Hi; That is no way to do business. I hope it works out for you. Who is the seller if you don't mind telling us? I recently sold an item on ebay, listed "used" and the buyer was looking for NOS. He said he was going to raise H*** about it so to make things easier I just gave his money back. I had no trouble reselling at same price. Some buyers are jerks also!GK

Trying to work it out with him. I found a second email for him and he responded this morning with a less than satisfactory response. He said his item was completely described in all of two lines. When I asked for specifics he never answered. That should have been a clue to me. He also said that I could resell it the way he did, which was fraudulent as far as I'm concerned or he would give my money back minus a 20% restocking fee......$136.00. I told him I expected a full refund of my winning bid minus the shipping. Real scumbag and if I don't get satisfaction, you can be sure all will know his name, and I'll file a formal complaint to get him banned from the site. Waiting to see how he responds.

Sounds like we should know who it is even if he finally comes through. Doesn't sound like someone I'd care to do business with.

Good news guys. The seller has been motivated to refund my money and I am returning his carbine. Don't know what Gunbroker told him, but it apparently worked. He has agreed to a full refund. I can only assume that his failure to list the weapon having an import stamp and a broken/repaired receiver, and then not answering questions about those specifics was the motivating factor.

Doubt it, he said the seller is in TN and the guy you are thinking of is out of AL.
