Elmer Ballance ask me to tell everyone he still has op rods and bolts for sale.
👌I was there about 5 years ago , he really hasn't changed much , and the shop has not changed any either. still has all those stocks on wall . did you get to see Serial # 00001 ? last time he tried to sell it for 50,000.00 to me . no have that much cash to plunk down on a rifle .
and he did make me bring some fried chicken and a six pack of beer when I called and asked if he needed anything before I came over LOL. so I got to sit there and eat a piece of chicken and drink a beer with him. got to hear stories and a lot of anti govn chit , he no like the feds .
interesting fella with a lot of history and fame & knowledge in our world of M1A's. he says what he says and does not hold back.
It is a NM. The number is engraved in the magazines, only his autograph is silverSharpie.Thank you for the pictures. The rifle he signed what is that a NM? I notice the hooded sight. What's the serial number range?
I bought a couple bolts from him about 5-7 years ago. They were reclaimed drill rifle bolts, he conveniently forgot to mention that part. I called him on it and he tried to say they were as good as original bolts and that's what he used on all his rifles. In the end he did take them back and refunded my money.He wanted me to tell everyone, he has OP rods & bolts for sale.
