Need some help from fellow DU members.

Last edited Fri Dec 21, 2012, 03:57 PM - Edit history (1)

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by krispos42 (a host of the Gun Control & RKBA group).

In the wake of the possible band on Hi cap gun magazines (Clips) there has been a Great rise in people trying to sell them on Ebay. Even though is is against Ebay polices. So I have been trying to report as many as I can find.

But I need some help? Lets try to keep theses death clips out of the wrong hands!!!


What to search for:

magpul
P-mag
Pmag
colt mag
GI-mag



They also try to code the adds so it does not look like they are selling cap magazines.

1. Help us with more info...

...are these search words sufficient to assure that the offered item is banned by eBay.
I do not know enough about weaponry but am willing to report everything. I don't want to be violating any policies through spurious reporting (if such policies exist).

4. Fastest place to sell them for high prices

I think they believe there are more suckers, that will pay the high prices they are asking.

11. look across the related searches

http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_trksid=p4069.m570.l1313&_nkw=.223&_sacat=0&_from=R40
.223
5.56
ar15

just .223 came up with magazines, bolt carriers, buffer springs, charging handles,

got your work cut out for you. Maybe you can get a job as ebay admin looking for prohibited stuff. Looks like they could use the help.
Found some cool .30 carbine stuff.

13. Can't solve all the problems of the world,

but I did my part by reporting items that should not be sold on Ebay, as per there own rules.

I also donated to the Brady Campaign.

If it was up to me, I would ban all semi-auto firearms and all magazine over 5 rounds.

PS: All these guys selling on Ebay,should go an try to sell these items on AR15.com. I don't think they would get the prices they are getting on Ebay.

14. we all have to do what we have to do

although I disagree with you on semi autos.
Although I have semi auto pistols, don't have any AR types. I do like .30 carbines though.

15. I've purchased about 50 pmags over the past week

 

All at regular prices, all you have to do is look and you can find them.

17. What happens if there is hi-cap magazine ban, with no Grandfather clause?

I know many of the guys on the gun-boards say they will never give in. But most will, history has proven that.

I don't think they will get much more gun control now. But in the last two years of President Obama's term, I think all bets are off.

18. Funny LOL!!!

But Ebay members already do police them self's.

I have had few item kicked off because they did not meet the standards.

If you want to sell there, you have to fallow there rules.

This really doesn't belong in the Group.

Maybe GD is the best home for this?
