This time of year I usually give away a trigger job or two, but this year has been both rough and a blessing. Moving and setting up a new shop were rough, but you guys (and gals) saved my bacon by sending me plenty of work to see me through the lean times. Therefore this year is going to be a little different, so pay attention please:
Regular Joes and lurkers who join can reply to this post to get their name in the hat for a Mini14 trigger job or a 10-22 trigger job. I’m giving away two trigger jobs, your choice of model.
Super Members can reply to this post for their chance to win:
A brand new, never fired stainless steel, fluted, and 5/8x24 threaded, 11 degree crowned, .750" at the block, AR15 barrelchambered in 6.8 SPC with barrel extension installed. The barrel has a couple of blems in the finish from moving, but nothing heavy or damaging. You know how stainless beaded finishes can be. I don't know the manufacture or twist rate, it's been too long sitting in my someday locker.
One of my A Package accurizing jobs to their Mini 14 which consists of trigger job, receiver bedding, gas port bushing and recoil buffer.
One winner from either category will win a single color DuraCoat package to whatever (non-NFA) firearm they wish. This is for the coating only – you supply the gun and pay the shipping both ways – being aware that handguns need to ship overnight. This gift is upgradable if you want to go further than one color, the winner can discuss that with me later. If you win this one by accident and don't have anything to coat, I will allow you to specify an alternate winner or I'll give you a different something nice - this prize has no cash value!
If you want to be entered for a specific prize, but not the others, please state so in your reply. You'll still win if chosen, but you'll get the right prize.
This should open the contest to everyone this year. With the exception of the DuraCoat package I'll pay the shipping to you, unless you want to help defray costs by covering it or want expedited shipping. Why the DuraCoat package? - I have no idea what's going to be sent and shipping could be quite expensive and blow my giveaway budget. I hope you understand.
Now I’m announcing this in plenty of time so that anyone who wants to become a Super Member has time to do so. Look around on the board for the link (I don't know where it is anymore - a little help here?) and become a Super Member. It’s cheap, easy and supports the upkeep of this forum, and gets you perks like this.
On the evening of December 24th, I will announce the winners and send them PM's with contact details. I ask that winners claim their prizes by the end of January 2011 so things don't drag out.
I’d also like to ask everyone to remember our service men and women this season and send them something really nice like phone cards. Several sources in your area can help you donate these and they mean a lot to them this time of year. And please drop a can of something in the food bank barrel at your grocery store.
