I do not have an online shopping cart. Once installed, that piece of software will automatically bill each customer for everything. As I run out of original material, I am constantly having to change customers' orders. Most orders would require more work issuing credits. If I were selling newly made items, online clearance of credit cards would not present a problem. All credit card and contact information is on each page. You can call in your credit card, email it, or send it by mail.

No shipments outside the US.

We have a large selection of GI and high quality Commercial parts. I normally do not handle commercial parts, but I bought out a few dealers which handled commercial 45 parts.  When I run out of them, I will not have anymore.  These old commercial parts were made here in the US, from the 1960's thru 1980's.  Today the commercail stuff and GI fakes are junk from other counties like China and South America.

 Our GI parts are not castings from South America or China  

All our GI parts are Contracts from WWII through 1990's.

If you are tired of purchasing junk, please order and give us a try. Click on the hyper links in the descriptions to see the original packaging of the part you are getting.   No other dealer will offer proof of originality. They are happy to sell fake junk for dollars.

Pistol Screwdriver, Ordnance Part Number 5564149, part of the M1912 Squad Cleaning Kit. The lot was repacked at Rock Island Arsenal in 1954. I have to go through approximately 800 tools to find the early production versions. PHOTO  The packs will have to be opened and the tools will have to be degreased, inspected, and sorted.

Past experience shows that only about 4% of the tools will be early production. The other 96% will be WWII tools produced by Metlglas and Stanley. Both which have manufacturer markings.

As I go through them I will be offering them as follows:

WWII Production, either manufacturer, our choice. PHOTO
$5.00 each

Pre WWII Production, (WWI and Pre WWI) usually blue, but may be blackish blue. Neither is marked.  PHOTO  $10.00 each
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 Return Policy

Every item sold is guaranteed to function as originally designed.  Items purchased which do not function as originally designed, will be replaced at no charge to the customer.  Items purchased for uses different than they were originally designed, will void the guarantee, and those sales are final.  Returned items must be in the same condition as when shipped and any alteration will void our guarantee. Call or email if in doubt, we are here to help.

Items purchased and then returned due to customer error will result in a restocking charge of 25%. 
In the event that item brings the total purchase below our minimum order, a $5.00 charge will be applied to the credit due.  Items returned for replacement due to customer error may result in addition shipping charges.

Sorry but I cannot sell parts based upon color requests.  Nobody on the internet can match their parts with your rifle, which is hundreds of miles away.  Ask and it will be recommended you attend a gun show with those items you want to match and compare them with what is available for sale.

All items for return must be tendered to the returning carrier within one week of receipt by customer.  We recommend high value items be returned via UPS to our return address on the shipping label.
