    He is one of those types that will make you head spin just talking to him let alone trying to deal with him. I still remembering him attaching tac lights to SKS
    stocks with dry wall screws as he wanted to upgrade them before he sold them. Anyway after bugging me and leaving messages for 3-4 days on the FR8 and
    Isaphore, I called him back yesterday afternoon and said lets meet. He said he did not have time to talk to me as he decided to go Christmas shopping (LOL).
    He will be calling back I am sure in a panic to get something done.

    Adios to the FR-8. It'll suit his needs better. Worth the trade I think. Occasionally I wish I still had mine. But not often.

    He called yesterday, but I did not answer phone. Just did not want the headache, maybe talk to him today. He does not went to spend money, but goes
    out and buys 2 Echo binary triggers for $900. Now he does not want to spend any money setting them up and acts like he is helpless in getting what he
    needs, including lowers. Wants me to do it for him. Told him stripped lowers are guns and I was not straw buying for him. At one time he had a a few neat
    guns (his dad was a builder, but getting old), but his latest 1 year and leave ex-wife cleaned him out pretty good. I also have vision of him sitting there
    on his speaker phone with a couple of BATF Agents making these calls (LOL). I actually broke contact with him for a couple of years as he drove me nuts.
    I do not see any harm in trading a bolt action for the Colt (if I it happens). He has had that gun for years and I have seen it in his safe way back when.

    LOL, the number of guns I have parted with in my years of collecting I can count on one hand. The only reason I am considering this is the value of the Colt is much
    more than either one of the two he wants. Also I would get one gun back for letting one go. I may not do it at all - I am at the point I just don't care for the hassle
    he puts me thru. Just a scatter brain (LOL).

    if it's a COLT SP1 I would do the trade in a heartbeat. couldn't care less what he does with the FR8, h can turn it into a BB un for all I care, it'll be his rifle. people spend a lot of bucks getting pieces and parts to make a retro A1, here you'll have one for whatever you spent on a FR8

    as for helping him install the ECHO trigger. personally, I wouldn't do it, if something goes south while you are installing it, you'll be responsible for it, or if it doesn't work he has problems with it etc... etc... he'll be forever coming to you to "make it right". you probably wouldn't want that

    just tell him you have no clue on how to do it and don't want the responsibility if something goes wrong or it doesn't work, and just take it to a gunsmith . then, let the gunsmith deal with him.



    or have him go on YOUTUBE and follow the tutorial in the installation of it and do it himself


    I certainly wouldn't in any circumstances buy a lower for him.

    this is just the first tutorial I picked, there are a bunch of others about installing it
