Not that I have any money, but I like to window shop.

Today's window shopping is for SKS's.

Because I have the Type 03 FFL, I clicked on the "Curio and Relic" category.

Nothing cements my conviction that if the disclaimers and requirements the seller assigns to the sale are longer than the description of the item in question, I don't want to do business with them.

For example:

Has matching number on stock, receiver, bolt, cover, mag and trigger guard. Has sling and cleaning tols are in butt. Bore is bright and shiny. Has its original Nationwide Sports shipping box. No markings on top of receiver. WE WILL NO LONGER SHIP HANDGUNS TO 03 C&R LICENSE HOLDERS REGARDLESS OF AGE OR STATUS. ALL FIREARMS SHIP TO FFL 01 OR OTHER DEALER TYPE LICENSE ONLY AND MUST BE SIGNED FOR UPON DELIVERY. WE WILL ONLY SHIP C&R LONGARMS TO TYPE 03 LICENSE HOLDERS IF WE HAVE LISTED THE ITEM IN THE CURIO AND RELIC CATEGORY.

I highlighted the part in about the gun itself in red.  All caps in original.

I also love how he'll take it back, and let you pay shipping both ways.  And just because I've encountered this one in cars... if you say "as is, where is" then ship it then you've vacated that portion of your disclaimer by shipping it so now standard warranty assumptions are now in effect for the sale.

This is getting to be entirely too standard on Gunbroker.  And after taking the time to take pictures, they can't take the time to excise the parts of their standard form that don't pertain to the gun in question.
