    Transaction Experience Thread

    All, It has come to our attention that there are a fair amount of transactions that take place between us U-E members. In an effort to improve the site and make everyone involved more comfortable, I am creating this thread (sticky) within the Buy, Sell, Trade forum where U-E members can mention their good transaction experiences, and, just in case, their NOT so good experiences. In the situation you do have a poor, or less desireable transaction, please be fair. No name calling, no embellishing, period! This is your warning. Good transactions should be mentioned as such, ....(think eBay): good communication, fast payment, equipment in good condition, etc, etc. If you'd simply like to start out by stating the members in which you've had good expereince with, you can list them, this way eveyone can see all at once, it's up to you. I have been on different forums that use a thread like this and it can be very helpful to people who are purchasing or selling something for the first time. If you have any questions, PM me. BE FAIR, BE NICE I will start: GOOD TRANSACTIONS WITH: Jocko Conlon FranklinT JaxRolo Slo8140 If I've forgotten someone, let me know, I'll add you

    All Star FM4000MAG

    Good point here ...... while the LUC PADS are indeed the same (LUC for the FM25, and LUC for the FM4000) ....the 4000 pads chin velcro is split to accept the middle chin bar. The 4000-MAG pads are obviously also split. All that said, you can still get standard LUC pads and cut the chin velcro yourself to fit a 4000

    Gerry Davis has a royal blue pad under his mask, between his mask and cap....looks like padding at least.....maybe in lieu of a hard hat?? Thoughts? Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk

    Douglas West Vest

    Can't remember if this was the one .... unless of course YOU had the gap cap put on that one .... story: easy ........ while working w/ Jeff Cook on one of my mods (my original 15" Douglas WV) .... I asked if he could do a gap-cap that wasn't a football (cup shaped) epaulet. I suggested to take the regular collar bone piece, trim it down and fit it for gap-cap protection. It was the same shape, pre formed , fit the space, but just needed to be trimmed...protective enough, but MUCH more streamline. He loved it and trimmed one up and sent me an email w/ a photo and thus .... there it is! "Thundercap!" LOL!

    Ebay finds

    it is ........ all of All Stars masks are hollow steel unless it's the MAG. This ad is for a regular FM25 but they used the wrong photo
  21. I shouldn't be surprised at the unbelievable stupidity of announcers .....

    Ebay finds

    right ... 21 oz is the original fm25, so ....it's the photo that's wrong
  23. Thunderheads

    Ebay finds

    that's NOT a traditional FM25, that's the new Titanium version ...either the wording is wrong in the ad ...or, more likely, the wrong photo
