Question If you were selling a Ruger MIII --

People often delete the mag disconnect and the LCI. Some are even populated with VQ parts.

If someone were to sell one, such as a MKIII512, via the PPT process; should the factory parts be reinstalled?

Seems like there might be civil liability attached if someone depended on these safety features (instead of their brain and safe handling procedures) in selling one that's been modified.

If I was selling a Ruger Mark III...

I would take a knee and punch myself in the face. LoLz

To the point, doesn't the buyer assume the responsibility of purchasing a used weapon "as is"?

I would say a simple disclaimer is enough like;

"OK, here is your new gun, now remember, I removed the LCI, I removed the mag disconnect safety and it has nice VQ parts in it, do you understand?"

In fact, I'd write it on a piece of paper as a receipt and keep a copy

sold for $5
one ruger MkIII with the following features;
disabled loaded chamber indicator. Do not rely on this unless you re-enable it.
etc, etc, etc...


Just CYA.

I would think so. But, society has become so litigious.

Make them sign something stating the fact that you have disabled some of the safety features and that he is purchasing it in that state. then get it notarized!

I would tell the potential buyers what has been done to the gun. Maybe you just saved the potential buyer(s) some hassle because they wanted to do the same modifications. Be upfront about stuff like that. I think it's the right thing to do.
