I've bought Winchester 9422 parts, an unused Smith hammer & an unused WWII Commando hammer off Ebay recently, but I don't want the word to get out. Then EVERYBODY'LL be scooping up what I need there.
So, let's keep it a secret, huh?
PayPal I agree with.
I stopped directly buying from Ebay after about 300 transactions when they introduced the PayPal Only Program.
Nowdays if I find something there I can't find anywhere else I'll ask a buddy who maintains an account with 'em for his car restoration parts to bid or buy for me & I reimburse him.
