Hi Moose,

From everything I've read, most of what they have is repro, whether it's advertised as GI or not. Esp. rare & expensive parts like barrels, flip-sights, type 1&2 barrel bands and type 1&2 hammers.

Best,
JP

I have seen most of their harder to find parts, including the barrels, and everything I have looked at was fake regardless if he says they are USGI or not.

FWIW, they will give you a full refund, including your return postage.

Hired gun is right---L & S are hump artists. They are honest ones, though---not at all like a certain seller, etc.

Well, As honest as you can be for selling original parts that aren't original.

Why not just buy it direct from L&S supply? Why buy it from someone that's going to mark it up? I don't know if there fake or not but they sure I beautiful parts.

Why would anyone in their right mind want anything but real USGI parts on their Carbine.We see enough of the humped stuff out there,I just wanted to see if he had a web site so I can compare his faked flip sights to the others we see being sold on GB and Ebay,you know what I mean.

For whatever it is worth, I doubt that the pictures would help you much. They are so close to the real ones that even with both in hand, many of us who have a great deal of experience with carbines still have difficulty telling the fakes.

Jim,
The sad part is that we might have to buy one his flip sights take it apart and go through it piece by piece and compare them to the real ones.I think that the good humpers did this to the real ones to get these good repros.
