      Well, I am finally back from our buying-trips and working on
      several "New Stuff" lists which will be going out starting early next
      week (fair warning).

      Most of what we were able to acquire has been interesting and
      uncommon handguns, but there have been a few nice military rifle
      acquisitions as well.

      We also were able to hand-pick some of the rare and unusual ALBANIAN
      SKS rifles in the finest condition we have yet seen. All are
      excellent, with 95-98% bluing on the metal, perfect chrome-lined
      bores, all-matching numbers, and decent wood with some dings and
      scratches from being palletized while in storage along with signs of
      minor usage.

      Price for these is $350 POSTPAID (lower 48 only) and includes an
      olive-green web-sling and a 10-pocket bandoleer with wooden
      fasteners. These are also C&R eligible.

      Check out our "books" page (http://www.empirearms.com/books.htm) for
      our latest acqusition, "Collecting Bolt-Action Military Rifles", an
      extremely useful hardbound work.

      We should be sticking around the home-front for the next three weeks,
      leading up to the massive "GREAT EASTERN" gun-show in Louisville
      Sept. 21-22.

        We just added around thirty more hand-picked Russian-captured Nazi
        98k rifles to our 98k page at http://www.empirearms.com/Nazi-98k.htm

        We do indeed have more of these rifles (a couple hundred yet
        unlisted), but prefer not to get overwhelmed with orders and thus
        have a shipping-problem getting them out to people so we are listing
        them a little at a time as as they sell-down we will list more. All
        were personally hand-picked and they are TOP of the line, no doubt!
        We also have quite a few RARITIES to offer for the more
        discriminating collector.

        EMPIRE ARMS has also just acquired some excellent-condition Belgian
        FN-49 bayonets and have added them to our accessories page at
        http://www.empirearms.com/access.htm Most of the FN-49 we have
        seen offered for sale were literally beat-up JUNK, but not so this
        lot! There are seriously NICE!

        As I mentioned in my last missive to you, my wife (and partner)
        Desiree will be going into surgery on the 12th and will be flat on
        her back for at least 6 weeks. As she usually does all of the
        packing and shipping expect that department to be slow as Hell for
        the next couple months while I make a feeble attempt to cover for
        her until she is back on her feet. Yeah, I PROMISE not to push her
        to start back to work until she is actually ready. . . I've already
        gotten my ass busted by some of you who know me all too well! ;^>

        For the Christmas season we offer official
        EMPIRE ARMS GIFT CERTIFICATES
        which can be made out in ANY amount ($5 or more) and can be easily
        paid-for with a credit-card. Your mom-in-law doesn't know what to
        get you for Christmas? Tell her to buy you an "Empire Arms Gift
        Certificate" and show them where we are. We will even do our part
        to partake in the holiday spirit by paying HALF of the shipping of
        your gift to you (not including ammo) until Jan 1st, 2003 in
        conjunction with a EAGC..

        Well, wish me some SLEEP (I get very little, and you can no doubt
        tell), SANITY (very hard to maintain with so very much going on) and
        PATIENCE (which I evidently need some work on).

        I'll try to keep you all "in the loop" as far as what is happening
        with us as well. . .

        Good luck, and GOD BLESS AMERICA!

          I'm finally home for awhile, and wanted to wish you all Happy
          Holidays!

          I did add about thirty Russian-captured 98k rifles on Wednesday night
          and another dozen tonight. Many of these are scarce to rare and many
          have clear stock cartouches.

          See http://www.empirearms.com/Nazi-98k.htm for details.

          We will likely put out another "New Stuff" list between Christman and
          New Years. . . we do have some neat items for you to peruse. We have
          been able to keep totally caught-up with shipping (though I had
          initially feared the worst)so there should not be any delays for the
          near future.

          Have a Happy Christman and GOD BLESS AMERICA!

            I just thought I would let you know that we are nearly SOLD OUT of
            the Russian captured Nazi 98k's and doubt if we will be able to
            acquire any more in the near future (aside from a small group of bnz
            single-rune rifles assembled at the Mauthausen concentration camp
            during 1943 & 1944 that we have already purchased and have yet to
            list).

            We just acquired some interesting Model 1933 Argentine short rifles
            in 7.65mm. . . for details (and photos) see
            http://www.empirearms.com/1933-argentine.htm

            We also have a small number of Russian 91/30 sniper rifles in
            excellent condition with matching numbers and clear optics @ $675
            apiece that we have yet to list on our "public" pages.

            Our next "new stuff" list won't be until next week at the earliest as
            we have run into a bit of a "dry" spell (it's been too cold down here
            for anyone to think about traveling to sell us anything). ;^p

            We will, as usual, be CLOSED for "Speed Weeks" here in Daytona Feb.
            8th-16th, and then CLOSED again Feb.19th-25th while I attend the
            Louisville "Show of Shows" and "National Gun Day" marathons. We will
            have a couple of shipping-days (on the 10th, 11th & 12th) and will be
            answering our emails remotely every day but otherwise will not be
            available during that entire period.

            Hope you are keeping warm and looking forward to the Spring (I know
            we are).

            GOD BLESS AMERICA and all our ships at sea!

              Desiree and I personally offer our moral-support to our troops abroad
              (including many of our customers who are doing their duty in the
              military). We hope that their tour is short and successful and that
              they return safely.

              We have just added the very last of the Russian-captured 98k's in our
              inventory to our web-pages at http://www.empirearms.com/Nazi-98k.htm
              (I know, the previous link that we supplied for that page did not
              work, but this one will). EMPIRE ARMS will not have any more of
              these available for several months at least, if even then, so this is
              your warning.

              I will be away on a buying-trip from Thursday, March 27th until at
              least Tuesday, April 8th. EMPIRE ARMS will therefore be CLOSED
              during that period and our web-pages will likely be taken off the web
              during that time as well.

              =====================================================================

              Yeoww! TEN YEARS!

              =====================================================================

              This month marks the TENTH (10th)ANNIVERSARY of the formation of
              EMPIRE ARMS. Desiree and I from the very beginning aimed our
              business-plan towards doing business on the internet, but in those
              days there was not much web-traffic. In no time at all, however, we
              became a major force in this venue and suddenly the business Empire
              Arms was doing began to outstrip that of our parent-company EMPIRE
              COINS, INC. (well known specialists for 22 years in ancient Greek and
              Roman Coins, http://www.empirecoins.com ). We valiantly attempted to
              run both companies at the same time for several years but by early
              1999 the writing was on the wall that we could do either ONE or the
              OTHER justice, so it was decided that we shut-down EMPIRE COINS in
              order to concentrate our efforts on EMPIRE ARMS totally and we really
              haven't looked back since!

              Apparently our business-plan was sound, as we currently have MUCH
              more business than we can reasonably handle and have only our
              faithful customers (you) to thank for it.

              We do PLEDGE to stay on the "cutting edge" of milsurp availability.
              As you well know we NEVER buy anything "blind" but I still PERSONALLY
              hand-pick every single firearm we offer for sale. With the ongoing
              military conflict with Iraq the availability of recently-imported
              firearms in the marketplace will likely be in jeopardy, but we will
              continue to offer complete collections and one-off purchases for you
              to peruse on a regular basis at (what we hope to be) competitive
              prices.

              We also want to remind you that we ARE the "HIGHER-BUYERS" when it
              comes to quality milsurp arms, and that we will most certainly be
              fair when evaluating your material (especially those items originally
              bought from us). We realize that selling milsurps isn't anything
              that anyone WANTS to do, but sometimes it becomes financially (or
              maritially) necessary.

              Have a nice spring (especially you guys in Colorado who got over TWO
              FEET of snow today) and we will be back in touch as soon as I get
              back from my upcoming trip and get all our new purchases logged-in.

              For those of you lucky enough to be able to go to the TULSA gun-show
              April 5-6, Dennis and BIG MIKE will no-doubt see you at the greatest
              show on Earth!

                No "New Stuff" list this week. . . gotta sell some of the "old stuff"
                before we can buy anything else (actually we have literally run out
                of room to put stuff).

                We have added some photos of the individual YUGOSLAVIAN Mausers we
                have available. See http://www.empirearms.com/yugo-mauser.htm

                We are having a *SALE* until the end of the month! Specifically we
                are offering FREE SHIPPING on all book-titles and special pricing on
                most of our handgun inventory.

                Also we have a SPECIAL until August 1st on our Russian-captured Nazi
                98k's at http://www.empirearms.com/Nazi-98k.htm
                We JUST added a couple dozen more nice examples to this list!
                Buy TWO 98k's and get FREE SHIPPING (lower 48 states only).
                Buy THREE or more 98k's and get an additional 10% OFF!
                (by the way, this offer *IS* valid on the 3/fer rifles at the bottom
                of our 98k page)

                Anyone want any Russian 98k crates? These are heavy-duty large
                wooden boxes (each holds 20 rifles) with heavy-steel braces and
                latches, and are FREE for the taking. . . the only catch is they must
                be picked up as they weigh over 100 lbs. apiece and are too bulky to
                be shipped. PLEASE don't make us turn these into firewood. . . ;^>
