I have to count, but I have approximately 200 rounds of 45-70 brass available for sale. I don't have a 45-70, so I'm hoping someone can use these. If you're interested, let me know and I'll get an exact count and we can sort out the price.

I have a used 16" OEM Sig carbine barrel for an MPX (9 mm) with the piston and the gas plug. This is a factory pinned and welded barrel with a flash hider on the end. I replaced it with a barrel that didn't have to be pinned and welded. So, this is an extra. It's perfect for converting a pistol to a rifle or as a replacement barrel or to get rid of the early carbine barrel with the three prong flash hider that would ring like a tuning fork with every shot. It's in very good condition. Pics on request.

$599 plus freight

If you have always dreamed of owning your own message board, now is your chance. After 20 years, I think it’s time to pass the mouse over to someone else. This place has been a lot of fun over the years and I’ve met some amazing friends through this board. There is a lot of good information here, and I want that to be preserved. These days I haven’t had the time or interest to play with cars. So, I think it’s time to pass it along.

Contact me if interested.

I have an AFE OEM style cold air intake that fits the 5.3 and 6.2 of the 2015 (and similar) Chevy 1500 (and I believe some of the suburbans and tahoes, etc). It was on the truck about a year. These are $450 new.

$275 OBO plus freight (if I can get a box large enough to ship it, this one may be tough) or local pickup in central Ohio.

After 7 glorious years, I finally retired my faithful 2015 SIlverado 1500. It was a 5.3 with crew cab and the electronic transfer case with the AWD option. We have been using it to tow our camper for about the last year and it did an admirable job overall. Sadly, the brakes were not up to the task and on more than one occasion I ran completely out of truck brakes and the trailer stopped the truck. That finally convinced me that it was time for an upgrade.

Last Monday, I drug home a new Silverado 3500 HD (Crew cab, short bed, 4x4/AWD, diesel with the 10 speed allison, 5th wheel/gooseneck prep, Z71 protection package, etc). I'm trying to put break in mileage on it before the next time I have to tow the camper, but so far I'm really impressed. It feels a lot larger than my last 3500, but it feels remarkably light on its feet with all that torque. GM was supposed to do a facelift and a power upgrade for the diesel in 2023, but they held it until 2024. I picked the truck up Monday, Tuesday I went to the chevrolet.com site and they are now "Introducing the 2024 Silverado HD". Awesome....

Despite that, I really like the truck and the facelift isn't really an improvement (I really think these trucks are rather ugly, but the chrome front end on mine is "less bad") and the diesel seems to have plenty of power so I'm not sure if I'll really care about the upgrade. Maybe I'll trade it in a few years....maybe I won't.

I've been trying to verify that the shocks didn't change between 2022 and 2023 so I can order Fox shocks for it. The OEM ranchos provide almost zero damping.

Also, I ordered the Advanced Trailering Package with the multiple camera views. However, you have to buy the "technology package" to get all of the camera views. So, I don't have the front bumper view (could be nice for parking) or the trailer side view cameras (that would be great for pulling around tight corners, etc). I'm a little irritated that the "Advanced Trailering Package" isn't the complete package unless you take lane departure warnings, parking assist, etc....all stuff I specifically didn't want.

So, be aware if you order one, check that stuff out. I ordered this one June 19th, give or take and got it last Monday. I hope I'm not sorry I bought a diesel.
