Ebay now considers Anschutz 54 Match rifles assault waepons



Log in to see fewer ads
I just had a listing removed on ebay, a 4751 handstop and sling swivel holder for the UIT rail, used on olympic rifles, like Walther and Anschutz Match rifles. Obviously some ignorant "firearms specialist" at Ebay considers the evil Anschutz 54 Match rifles now assault weapons. I called and talked to some people I could barely understand to put this under review.

These are the times that we are living in, ignorance runs rampant.

eBay and PayPal have been dead to me for years due to their capricious policies.

You can still buy and sell parts and accessories.


Wonder what they would think of someone selling a Salt Stock

To them, an Anschutz Rifle is an AR style rifle.

I just searched "anschutz handstops" over there and found several. No idea why yours was kicked off.

I would think for the majority this is an automated function that catches these things so I would think there's a good chance somewhere in the posting something was caught.

Is this a new policy? It seems like just a few months ago I bought some plastic inserts for a rail on an AR and a tripod. According to that policy these parts now can't be sold?

Pretty much. Heck, Texas 4H doesn't allow Ruger Precision rifles as they're too black and military looking.

I think it's pretty much random. I tried to sell a SIG P320 grip frame -- which is basically just a hunk of plastic -- and they rejected it, possibly because it had the word "frame" in the description. I found a bunch of others that just called it a "grip" and were left alone.
