Re: Car cigarette lighter in a "new" car

Remember, these new power jacks are made to run a GPS, cell phone, etc, which may require a few amps, while that liter may need 10+ amps. Make sure the wiring, & fuse are able to supply that. GARY

Re: Lexus LS 460 Questions...

No-one inspects a vehicle that closely at auction when you're buying 100 at a time. Well maybe they should. Then this wouldn’t have happened. I’m at Mannheim auction all the time. The auction is open 2 hour’s before the bidding starts. That’s when dealers search for the cars they want. They’re avai...

Re: Lexus LS 460 Questions...

Off Lease Only is a good place to shop if you want to buy a car that was in a wreck before. Despite their name they sell more than the stuff from off Lease There have been instances where they sold cars that were “flood cars” from a hurricane in NC. The titles did not reflect this. GARY 4.7 rating ...

Re: Arsenal AK-20s coming...

US AK’s $uck. Buy a Wasr, or a Yugo instead. Or buy a kit with an imported barrel, & have Don in Ft. Myers assemble it. GARY.

Re: Any Experience With Extar EP9?

My friend has one, & he likes it. But my big worry is both receivers are plastic. For the lower, that’s fine, but how long can an upper plastic receiver last with a steel bolt, & carrier going back, & forth in it? GARY.

Re: Galil Clone (Golani) Any Good?

I had 2. They both worked perfectly, & both used the ORF receiver. The first one [early production] had the typical problem of the left side of the receiver not mating up with the lug of the bolt. This put all the stress on the right lug. Eventually headspacing would be lost. So even though it worke...

Re: $8 Background Check?

Glad it was resolved. My take: The $8 background fee is reasonable, won't hold it against any shop. If advertised with 3 mags...I expect 3. Period. I've hung out for years in various shops throughout my life...in the land of the scam...Miami. I've witnessed many employees pilfer items from transfer...
