Can you provide any info on this company? Thanks!

I'll PM you the link, although I think you'll need some ATF forms signed to get guns (and maybe ammos) into US.

That's a Marstar Canada deal, but they have the following information on their page:

Attention U.S. Clients: Due to a U.S Government imposed embargo (import ban), we CANNOT ship Chinese made firearms to the United Stated. Please contact the A.T.F. for more information.

I think this is a Canadian only deal, unfortunately. Of course, the SKS has been reduced to a 5 round capacity too.

aw, for the good old days when surplus ammo was readily available for 2 or 3 cents a round and sks rifles could be had for $50.

it was not that long ago that 30/06 could be had by the crate for 5 cents a round.

I knew a guy who bought several skid loads of surplus ammo maybe ten years ago in various rifle and handgun calibers. the shipping cost him about the same as the ammo.

at 65 you don't really know how much longer you will be able to play.... I typically shoot two USPSA pistol matches (100-120 rounds each) and two 3 gun matches (60 pistol,60 rifle,50 shotgun)a month... I hope Precision Delta, my 9mm bullet supplier comes through as promised at 16 weeks till delivery...I've quit shooting one pistol match till they get here...
