Stating that it is classified as assault weapon.
This is their response after my rant to them

We carefully reviewed your Revolution Blue Thumbhole Stock for a Ruger
Mini 14 listing for Item # 280334836327 and found that we took the
correct action. Your listing was removed because it violated the eBay
policy.

The sale of any assault weapon-related (defined as an "assault weapon"
by either federal or California state law) parts or accessories is not
permitted on eBay because selling these items is highly regulated by the
government or may be illegal in some areas. The prohibited items include
stocks, grips, slings, sights, or any part or accessory identified as
compatible with an assault weapon (as defined by either federal or
California state law).

That is so lame! They canceled a CETME M4 style stock I had for sale a while back as well. If you include the word "airsoft" (wink,wink), it makes it ok from what I understand.

Totally dumb. I friend of mine who used to work for eBay actually used to sit a couple of cubes away from a guy whose job it was to comb through the gun related listings. Funny thing is my friend is also a gun guy too, but never did take up any discussions with this guy about guns. Probably for the better.

Okay. The Korean kid that shot up Virginia Tech bout a P-22 magazine from Ebay. There was an uproar -- Ebay was looking at a million liability lawsuits -- so they changed their policy. They cancelled my JAE stock auction when I had a HUGE bid on it -- and t here was another one listed at the same time. Why did they cancel MINE? Because I said "fits the LRB M-14" in the text. They have a global search in for the model numbers of guns classified as AWs. End of story. Sold it on GB at a loss. F Ebay for gunstuff

Here's the trick. Can any of us start a competitive site that beats out eBay in terms of buyers and popularity? Even Yahoo auctions is not really heard of any longer. Tough call. I know we have our own site starting soon, but how will we reach the same magnitude as the incumbents? Dunno.

My question is... Why are people still using Ebay?:nuts:Because you CAN get good deals on there. Not to mention that, in general, if it's up for auction, it's in stock and on hand right then and there.

I've seen so many sites lately that don't have their items marked "OUT OF STOCK", so I don't know if I will have it in a week or 6 months if I buy from them. I then go over to eBay and search out what I'm looking for. So far, for my AR build, I have found:

Smith Vortex f/h w/crush washer
YHM flattop gas block
YHM single point sling adapter
Magpul modular rail covers
Magpul Enhanced Trigger Guard
Gear Sector ASP single-point sling
and an EOTech 552 A65/1

All for relatively competitive prices. I know they're not all "high ticket" items (well, 'cept the 552...;)), but I got all of them within days of finding them, some with free shipping.

I dont mean to stray off topic, but from my understanding isn't the VORTEX self-tightening? No need for a crush washer? Anyways, glad you had a good experience with EBAY.

If we're gonna bash E-Bay and such sites who refuse to allow any gun-related commerce, then we should also be bashing the hundreds upon hundreds of Gunbroker (and other) sellers who refuse to do business with California buyers. Same idea applies-- a denial of 2nd Amendment rights. Sure, I understand that trying to do business through all the CA BS is probably a hassle, but thats all it is..... a hassle. Nothing illegal about it. Soon enough, because of people not willing to deal with the hassle, these Nazi-esque laws will make their way into other states that we now consider "gun safe". Then what?

Ebay cancelled an auction I had for a set of factory Saiga stock set. I sent an email saying this stock is from a RAA Saiga and not a Kalashnikov USA Saiga, and explained the difference (Roberti-Roos list). Two days later they wrote back apologizing that they had made a mistake and that they would refund the fees and that I could relist the item if I wanted.

agreed. they also do horrible things to people selling authentic things like... gold bullion by allowing sh**heads selling fake lead coins that have a very thin outer gilding of gold leaf as "pure gold clad American Eagle" and so forth to flood the section with things that aren't even on target. those motherf*****s don't even come down on the sellers who are purposefully advertising their junk "coins" in a legitimate high value section. not even remotely similar, unless you consider a coin worth maybe a few pennies is comparable to another coin worth over $1000. i have done a lot of gold/silver buying/selling over the years. as you can tell this is one of my pet peeves, is the a**holes who try to fool others with junk wares and ebay who allow them to repeatedly even after i hollar and raise ruccous and throw big stones and rocks around, sik Dino on them, etc.. so now i resort to bullying tactics with the junk sellers. just for fun :43: it is a stress reliever, might try that sometime if you get the chance :thumbsup: i highly recommend!

you bring up standards. standards? there are none except they have a standard approach to jacking you. ebay does what ebay does because they are money grubbing cowards. they are like hyenas. relentless hyenas. not coyote, hyenas. they get you from all angles and when you try to defend yourself they get you from the opposite side, this fee, that fee, enforced paypal up to buyer discretion not seller, paypal fee to process payment, then cash out your paypal account fee, you start with $100 sale and you take home like $85 of that if you are lucky.

The Ruger mini 14 is not an assault rifle. David Roberti excluded this model from his s-- list of those 54 banned weapons because too many people already owned them! The same goes for the surplus and commercial M-1 carbines as well as the Springfield M1-A.

Thumbhole stocks were originally made for custom built bolt action target rifles. They weren't even that common until reintroduced as the substitute for the pistol grips which were banned by the AWB in 1989. Remember that post-ban Norico MAK-90? How in the hell is a blank piece of wood or molded fiberglass considered to be an assault weapon without any barreled receiver?

The female IDIOT responsible for EBAY's crazy anti-gun policies wants to be governor. Meg Whitman's other Republican opponent is former rep. Tom Campbell who earned a F- rating from the NRA because he is a hard core anti-gun politician! I hate to admit that voting Democratic in 2010 can't be any worse than putting up with these GOP losers...

I talked to another guy who was hassled for selling some M1 Garand clips. Those are arbitrarily forbidden, but the same type of feeding devices for the Mauser broomhandle pistol, Mannichler-Carcano and Steyr model 1895 rifles are fine. Any assault rifle bayonet is permitted on EBAY except the ones that fit on the end of an AK-47

Don't try to sell a 1939 iron cross on EBAY either, but the China Incident medals (awarded to Japanese soldiers) who raped thousands of women and girls in Nanking is just fine. Meg Whitman and her ilk don't care if Serbian nationalists peddle T shirts depicting the faces of Slobodan Milosevic and other modern day war criminals, whose acts of genocide are still fresh in the world's mind.

It's time to stop harassing the kids who downloaded a few MP-3s on Napster. Maybe one day, the RIAA will realize that a constant deluge of pirated music can be found of EBAY too...

The reason I'm looking at property in Arizona.
I sold my Cobray MAC-10 to a friend that moved to ARIZONA about 20 years ago. I didn't have much use for it and the $400 came in handy too.

I'm not the kind of guy who will register his guns just to satisfy those fascists in Sacramento! And no regrets either, after they sent letters threatening to prosecute 2000 law abiding suckers, who purchased their SKS sporters from the FFLs. Kalifornia's population centers are full of stupid mindless cretins, who still don't know that their own corrupt regeime has confiscated guns from the public just like the Nazis...

AMEN; but these idiots don't care. Fortunately it's easy to provide an e-mail address to the sellers and deal with it privately.

FWIW, "Ms. Meg" has openly stated her goal of running for CA Governator in the near future. She's very anti....

The GOP couldn't find lousier candidates if they tried! I'll vote for a wishy-washy Democrat like Moonbean Brown; before I vote for Whitman or Sarah Brady's lap dog Tom Campbell. He is a Dianne Feinstein monster with a d---. Don't be surprised if he is endorsed by HCI despite the donkeys being the usual choice of the Gun Control Lobby.

Campbell was right there with New York rep. Chuck Schumer with his activist schemes to shove gun legislation up your --- sideways in the 1980s. This earned him a F rating from the NRA...

Here's the trick. Can any of us start a competitive site that beats out eBay in terms of buyers and popularity? Even Yahoo auctions is not really heard of any longer. Tough call. I know we have our own site starting soon, but how will we reach the same magnitude as the incumbents? Dunno.

Yahoo auctions still exist overseas. Gun broker is not the answer because they treat us like third class citizens and won't ship legal items to kommiefornia. There is a place called BluJay, where people sell some gun parts in the Buy it now format. They won't hassle you over a damned stock either. Post your item for free and name your price. No limit on how long you leave it up...

It's just more proof that some people at EBAY don't know their butts from a hole in the ground...

Yeah, I put up a scope mount and it got canceled because I put in the ad that it fit AK type rifles. However, if you search AK SCOPE MOUNT you find tons of stuff, so no idea why mine was canceled. Another auction I had was canceled because I put BNIB in the title. Frigging Ebay.
They cancelled a guy from Oregon who sold barrel wrenches and vises. He fought those idiots for more than two weeks to get them back on EBAY. Why are reloading tools Ok but not empty brass shell casings?

Because you mentioned the nasty word, AR-15. This is why people advertise AK-47 bayonets simply as Russian, Romamian etc or as early or late models. Don't tell a moron what rifle it fits on. I often see firing pins labeled as generic parts for certain models of firearms...

Okay. The Korean kid that shot up Virginia Tech bout a P-22 magazine from Ebay. There was an uproar -- Ebay was looking at a million liability lawsuits -- so they changed their policy. They cancelled my JAE stock auction when I had a HUGE bid on it -- and t here was another one listed at the same time. Why did they cancel MINE? Because I said "fits the LRB M-14" in the text. They have a global search in for the model numbers of guns classified as AWs. End of story. Sold it on GB at a loss. F Ebay for gunstuff
And just say, "f--- Whitman" for governor too. What we need is a phony campaign bumper sticker with her name on it and the international "no guns" symbol on it for free negative advertising in 2010.

The same goes for Tom Campbell too. His activist anti-gun efforts in Congress in the 80s, are as bad as Feinstein is today...

Exactly right! EBAY is full of these idiots. Our first female GOP governor might even be the first really stupid one too. I turned on the KTVU news at 10:00 on Friday night. This dumb broad and her senile war hero buddy are already on the campaign trail. Never mind that she can't even file her formal candidacy before January 1, 2010...
