    Posted: Apr 01 2020 at 4:39pm
There is a carbine parts seller on eBay who SEEMS to be legit on the whole, but he/she has posted some items for sale that make me wonder, like repeated auctions for Type IA barrel band swivels, particularly rare ones like KV-S'G'.  Does anyone have any experience/comments about this seller?

    Thanks,   John

Its Rollermillseast  on eBAY. Are you familiar with him?

      I am aware of others from earlier on like Riverbank Armory.

     Thanks for your help.

So is Riverbank Armory a reputable source or no?   I just ordered a sling!

This forum and CMP forum are good places to find parts.

A genius on CMP was told not to buy parts from that seller after asking the same question of credibility. He very much behaved condescendingly toward the people giving advice and bought anyway. Then when the part came he asked for help IDing it as real or not. Everybody pretty much ignored him. There are times when someone gets what they deserve.

I've said it before, a skeptical attitude in this hobby is not a bad thing. It's unfortunate that there's an ever growing amount of scammers out there who peddle faked up carbines and reproduction parts and even more unfortunate that upward trend will continue, most likely as long as the carbine restoration hobby exists.

No one is immune from making mistakes in this field and that can't be repeated enough times.

This sight is a great resource. I saw a Carbine and with their help it was identified as being reparkerized, pieced together and fake stock markings. Not saying it was worthless but it had a value less than it's asking price, in my mind it was a really nice shooter, not a collector rifle.

The dealer understood why I was not interested, kept it on the shelf, kept his mouth shut and it sold for $1,450 4 months later. He works on commission.
