WTB: Chinese M21
« on: August 10, 2018, 03:06:36 PM »
I am interested in buying a Vietnam era Chinese M21. Serial number starting with "No", presumably a bring-back. Papers not necessary, just looking for a shooter that's not beat to ****.

Willing to pay up for one so please let me know. PM me and we can start the conversation. Thanks guys!

"No" stamped M21's are widely acknowledged as Vietnam bringbacks. No papers necessary.

That said, it will probably be next to impossible to find any collectors out there willing to part with theirs only to see it end up as a shooter.

All of that is obvious to me.

     - If it's papered I'm thinking 3 times the cost. No papers necessary because it's widely acknowledged that they are Vietnam bringbacks. So... I could actually be able to acquire it for a decent price if it's not papered. I'm not rich.

     - Collectors' tastes change. So if someone here was looking to make a change now would be a good time for both of us. I love to overpay so once the conversation gets started the prospective seller will see that I am serious.

     - By "shooter grade" I just meant that I would like to be able to shoot it ocassionally. I'm taking 50 rounds a year if that. Hardly sacrilege by any definition, in fact a respectable "collectors" amount of enjoyment. There are worse fates than ending up in my care...

Got one for sale?

I may be mistaken but the difference in price between a documented vs un-documented  "No" gun is gonna be close nominal at most.

Like the difference in price between docs or no-docs on a "☆1" stamped NVA.

Essentially, the "M21 No" stamp IS the documentation.

Also. I wish I did, but do not have an early "No" stamped M21... not yet.

Good luck in your quest.
