Please read & understand these rules BEFORE posting.
We aren't a high volume buy trading forum thats not what we're about. the trader is a courtesy service for our members.
We've debated the kind of free flow thing before but now we regrettably need to have some rules in place for all our protection. Here they are, please take a minute to check them out so we can continue to offer the service with no drama.

To make use of this board you must read, understand, and agree to the following. By using this board you are by default stating that you have read, understood, and agree to the rules and standards below.

********************GENERAL DISCLAIMER********************


Enfield-Rifles.com, those that work Enfield-Rifles.com, Site Sponsors, the Site Server, the Site Administrators, the Site Moderators, and anyone associated with the running of Enfield-Rifles.com are not responsible to any listings made in any of Enfield-Rifles.com Trader-Classified Ads-Sponsor Boards.

We do not stand behind any sellers nor buyers, so buy, sell, or trade at your own risk.


We are not responsible for the accuracy of any listings made on these boards. If you buy a lemon or a misrepresented item, do not complain to us. All buyers, traders, and sellers agree to comply with all local, state, federal, and international laws in regards to items sold on the Enfield-Rifles.com Trader-Classified Ads-Sponsor Boards. It their duty and responsibility to ensure that all such laws are followed at all times.


************************************************** **************

NOTE: This section is moderated, any infraction of the rules, can & may result in your post being locked, removed or changed at the moderators discretion.

The only items allowed in any of the For Sale areas are Firearms and closely related items only (i.e. accessories, ammunition, bayonets, shooting gear, reloading etc.).

1:The For Sale section is available to anyone with a minimum of 10 posts and 30 days membership on the forums.

This is to cut down on the number of people who sign-up just sell their items. This section is meant for active members of the board. If you are a long standing member with a low post count contact a Moderator and we can help you out.


2: NO COMMERCIAL POSTINGS
a. If you are a gun dealer, militaria dealer, pawn shop owner, or run a commercial business that is related to items that might be listed on this site, AND you are not a sponsor, you are not allowed to routinely post items for sale or trade on these boards. Contact Mod for details.
b. NO auctions, links to auctions, or links to online sales currently running on other forums or commercial sites.
c. NO duplicate user names.

3: NO LINKS TO AUCTIONS currently running on other sites.
This is not an auction site and posting a link to an online or a more traditional auction is not allowed.


4: Reloaded Ammunition NOT allowed For Sale in the forum:

Reloaded ammunition will not be allowed to be bought, sold or traded on our forum.


5: STATE A PRICE
If you have an item to sell then you must state a price. This is not a site to solicit offers. It is allowed to state something such as price is $250 or best offer, but there has to be a price listed.


6:WTS or WTT or WTS/WTT
These title descriptors must be used – Wanted To Sell – Wanted To Trade. Be clear in the title of your listing.


7:COMMENTS AND CHAT ARE NOT ALLOWED.
This is not a discussion board and should not be used as one. Technical questions & answers relating to the transaction are allowed but
ABSOLUTELY NO TROLLING IS PERMITTED.


8: DO NOT HI-JACK FOLKS ADVERTISEMENTS BY TELLING PEOPLE YOU PAID LESS OR MORE OR REFERRING TO SIMILAR OR SAME PRODUCT OFF SITE.

If you just have to do such, please use the PM or email, not a response/post in someone’s individual classified.


9: BUMPING or BACK TO TOP.

Bumping or Back to Top(BTT) is allowed, but only by the following guideline:


Bumping back to the top will only be allowed starting 7 days (one Week) from the date of the original posting and then every 7 th. day after that.

Excess use of this type of post is not fair to new ad posters who are trying to sell their items.

A comment will be considered a bump when an intentional comment, knowing that your ad will be brought to the top, appears.


10: MARK YOUR ITEMS AS SPF, SOLD OR NO LONGER FOR SALE
If an item(s) sell, please mark these as sold. If an item does not sell and you have decided you no longer wish to have the item listed – you must update your ad stating the item is no longer available.
please mark these as sold or if it’s sold pending funds, then please edit the original posting to include this information.


11: IF YOU DO NOT INTEND TO PURCHASE AN ITEM DO NOT MAKE COMMENTS like "I would buy that but I just bought a new Lear Jet and will have to wait until next paycheck". This is irrelevant information and is not appreciated by anyone, especially the seller.


12. NO LISTINGS OR LINKS TO COMMERCIAL SALES
No one may post links or information on sales.


13. MULTIPLE USERNAMES ARE NOT ALLOWED
You must use ONE and only ONE username for listings on these boards. Anyone found to be listing under more than one name will be removed from the site.


14: IF YOUR ITEM IS LISTED ON MORE THAN THIS SITE THE POST MUST STATE THIS FACT. THIS APPLIES TO OTHER WEBSITES & ANY ONLINE OR RETAIL SALES OUTLET OR AUCTION HOUSE OR BOARD.


15:"LOOKING FOR......": BELOW ARE SOME SUGGESTIONS AND FEW HOUSEKEEPING RULES.

Make sure your post topic is descriptive.
Add as much information, or describe the part you are looking for as well as you can.
After you find your elusive item, come back and edit the post topic and add, “FOUND!” to the end of it. It will provide positive feedback and let everyone know the forum is helpful.

15: Any difficulties between a buyer and seller should be brought to the immediate attention of a moderator.


16: Not all email clients are alike; some members do not get PM notifications. As a result we must take action to protect our members. Starting now, all questions, offers and "I'll take it" must be done in the actual for sale thread. NO PM's.

17: "I'll take it's" Which as a reminder are to be in the THREAD not in a PM on our forum we consider to be a binding commitment to buy/sell.

The only way out of if is if both parties work out an agreement to undo the sale. In other words, moderator intervention is not needed. This protects all from false expectations, keeps everything above board and the playing field level. After the sale is agreed upon, private information should use alternate methods (PM's Emails). Corrections to potential misrepresentations should also be in the public view, but must be in good taste and adhere to existing rules.


18: Sellers have the right to not sell to an individual based on forum knowledge (our forum or others) or from advice of members, because of this they may decline to sell to an individual, but must apprise a moderator of their intention before doing so. The declination must not be based on race, gender, religion, or political beliefs.


19: Restricted Sales to Certain States/Cities:

Restricted selling: The only acceptable wording in a For Sale ad if it must be (Restricted selling) is
"not for sale where restricted by law" or something similar.


Members who violate any of the above or involve deceit, or any-other unethical practices may be banned from using this section after the Forum Owner and Moderators review both sides of the transaction. Notice that we have banned several users from the For Sale area. These choices were made to protect the users of this forum. Keep in mind an agreement to purchase or buy, we consider a binding agreement. If you aren't sure, don't offer to sell or buy.


20: Members auction items.

Are not permitted, this is not an auction site. (see rule 5 above)


For Buyers:
You MUST give an approximate location. State & County at a minimum
This to allow both buyer & seller to be compliant with all applicable local, state & federal laws.

When purchasing an item from this site it is highly recommended that YOU pay for the item using a method that can be traced. i.e., a Postal Money Order, an on line payment company, a certified check, etc. When using the Post Office, a signature delivery is the safest way to go. Make sure that you keep records of the transaction to the seller and any emails setting up the deal until you have the item in hand.


For Sellers:
You MUST give an approximate location. State & County at a minimum.
This to allow both buyer & seller to be compliant with all applicable local, state & federal laws.

You word is your bond. If you fail to receive the payment, contact the seller ASAP to allow time for tracking the payment. Keep records of your emails/phone calls.
Receiving a payment and not sending the item in a timely manner is not acceptable. If you cannot send the item within 48 hours of receiving the payment, make sure to let the buyer know this up-front.
Failing to deliver the item at all is both Wire and Postal Fraud.
