Crappy situation, have to sell off some personal guns..

To all,

Several months ago I was directed to a new company called GPal which was a new online service so that gun related sales could be conducted using credit card payment just as Paypal is used for most everything else. Paypal however does not have the best reputation for firearm related sales so this was the reason for GPal starting up.

Anyway, when I started offering this payment option to customers, they jumped all over it. Within a month I had well over 30 payments for products through GPal with merchandise shipped as I was told if you have the money on your Gpal account, its as good as in your bank account.

THAT WAS NOT THE CASE!!!!

After the first month of use I noticed that no wire transfers were making it to my bank account from GPal. I called them and they told me they were just 20 days behind on paperwork and the payments would be made anytime. Another month passed and still no deposits were made. Long story short, They are into me for ALOT of cash and I have been fighting for the past several months to get this straightened out.

Unfortunately, other bills do not wait and this has really set my business behind so I have been forced to make some hard decisions and I am now putting up several of my personal firearms for sale to help cover some of the pending funds being held by GPal.

Might as well start off with the big one:

Raptor LRSS
APS Raptor receiver
Raptor triple pinned stainless steel rail base
338 Allen Xpress
30" SS barrel with Raptor contour and flute pattern
Slim Painkiller MB
McMillan A-5 stock
Adjust Cheek Piece
Adjust LOP(spacer system)
Jewell trigger set at 1 lb
Seekins DM system
Four Vortex steel tactical 35mm rings
Vortex Razor 5-20x 50mm w/ EBR-2 reticle
Vortex 35mm scope spirit level installed
338 AX loading die set
Cabelas 62" bullet proof aluminum hard case

Total retail price........................................$7300

Asking price............................................. .$6500

I am not seriously wanting to sell the optical package with this rifle but if someone wants the total package read to shoot, I will sell it all together. If someone wants the rifle but not the optics or rings, total will be $4800 for rifle case and dies.

This rifle was assembled late summer of 2010 and has roughly 75 rounds through the barrel. Load has been fully developed using the 300 gr Berger VLD loaded over 96.0 gr Retumbo and produces 2900 fps. This is a relatively mild load as I did not want to push the Berger bullets to hard. Shoots extremely well and I have drops figured and on the rifle out to 1350 yards.







This is a hell of a rifle, extremely easy to shoot and very accurate at very long ranges. I have parts to rebuild another rifle exactly like this other then in a single shot platform as I really prefer the single shots and used this rifle in that way but unfortunately, recent events have required me to decide to move this rifle.

Next up:

Custom APS XP-100
6.5mm WSM match chamber
15" Lilja Stainless steel 1-8 twist barrel
APS Painkiller medium muzzle brake
Fully accurized Rem XP-100 receiver
Sako extractor
Holland comp recoil lug
Original Boyds thumbhole laminates stock which I converted and refinished to conventional center grip design.
Reinforced stock grip
Internal aluminum bedded V-Block bedding
EGW steel tactical rail base
4 TPS steel tactical rings
Zeiss Conquest 4.5-14x 50mm with 1000yard Rapid Z reticle

Retail value.................................$3640

Asking price................................$2100

This handgun has around 175 rounds down the barrel. Throat is still in very fine condition. Developed a load with the 140 gr A-Max this spring which produced right at 2900 fps with a comfortable load. Recoil is less then a 38 special, extremely mild, in fact my factory 221 fireball XP-100 has MUCH more muzzle jump and recoil then this 6.5mm WSM XP has. I have taken several mule deer with this handgun out to 450 yards. Works extremely well.





This is a very nice handgun and it does pain me to sell it. Very flat shooting, very hard hitting and very accurate. If you want to get into serious big game hunting with a handgun or just want a legit 1000 yard class handgun, this one would be hard to beat. Again, sad to let this one go but no choice.

Next up:

Xtreme Sporter
6mm-06
Trued Win M70 push feed receiver
Boyds classic sporter stock, grey/black laminate
Lilja #3 contour Stainless steel 1-9 twist barrel
APS small PK muzzle brake
Trigger set at 1.5 lbs
Millet Camlock rings
Weaver Grand slam steel two piece bases
Leupold 4.5-14x 40mm LR 30mm tube with Varmint Hunter reticle
Leupold Lumina screw on scope covers

Retail price.................................$3100

Asking price...............................$2100





This is another rifle that pains me to get rid of. I built this rifle for my little girl to use when she got old enough to do some serious shooting. That is the reason for the lighter barrel and muzzle brake and 6mm-06 chambering. Rifle has no recoil at all yet with the 107 gr SMK loaded to 3400 fps it does amazingly well out to 1000 yards. Loaded with the 95 gr Ballistic tip at 3500 fps its amazing on lighter big game which is why I put it together. Pretty light weight, Extremely low recoil and lot of fun to shoot. This little rifle will keep up with any 300 RUM or 30-378 Wby out to 1000 yards as far as ballistic performance is concerned.

I am not selling dies with this rifle because I do not have any. I use a 25-06 FL sizing die to size the body and bump shoulder and then use a 243 Win FL die properly adjusted to the right height to size the neck and a standard 243 Seating die works perfectly well for seating bullets. No need for expensive custom 6mm-06 loading die set.

Last one:

I took this rifle in on payment for a customers rifle this past summer:

DPMS Panther LR-308
308 Win
Heavy 24" SS barrel
Two 20 round factory magazines
Two 20 round Magpul magazines
Custom Ergo grip
Trigger job
Burris Tactical 30mm rings
Burris Black Diamond 6-24x 50mm with ballistic Mil-Dot reticle
Factory hard case
Factory tools and paperwork

Retail price..................................$2000

Asking price.................................$1600

I have pics of this rifle but can only post 6 pics per post so if your interested let me know and I will get you some pics. Rifle is basically new with barrel break in done.

I have not shot this rifle all that much. I have finished the barrel break in on it and will say it shows a strong preference for the 155 gr Sierra MK Palma bullet. Roughly 60 rounds down the barrel is all. Basically asking what I have in for trade on this rifle is all. Again, do not really want to get rid of this one either as I have wanted one of these AR-10s for quite some time but have to do it.

First come first serve on all of these. No holds, no modifications, sold as is. Firearms made by me will be backed by me as always.

Hi Kirby,

Sorry to hear you are faced with some very hard decisions and I do remember this when we discussed methods of payment for one of your muzzle brakes.
I hope everything works out well for you with the sale of these very fine rifles as you do build some excellent stuff.
As you know I recently purchased a 5 port Pain Killer muzzle brake from you for my 338SnipeTac and I am in absolutely awe as to your superb machinery skills that are evident in this excellent product.
Please don't go down the gurgler as we need highly skilled people such as yourself in this industry.

All the best

Really hurts to hear this, my friend! This kind of stuff shouldn't happen to good people like yourself. Especially right at the holiday season. I wish you luck. Hang in there.

Hope this is a very temporary situation, Kirby. May 2011 be a much better year for you...and this will become a distant memory.

Re: Crappy situation, have to sell off some personal guns..

This situation with GPal has set me back pretty hard but I have been fortunate enough to have great customers, many of you here on LRH and because of that I have been able to build up an emergency cushion for situations just like this.

As such, Allen Precision is not in any financial problems at all, I just do not want to hit that emergency fund and drain it down to a low level. Its much easier to sell off a few rifles, cover the damage and then down the road when I get caught up I can replace what I have sold if I decide to. Thats the good thing about being able to build your own firearms!!!

Still, just a tight spot right now and in my opinion, its better to sell off some rifles then take the chance of getting to low in the finances, never know what can happen down the road.
