    Default Bolo: Major firearm / nfa theft in fairbanks

    Details pending, but so far value looks to be in the 6+ digits. I'm still waiting to get an inventory and serial number lists, but considering everything missing it might be a bit.

    Off the bat, we know:

    -Barrett M82A1M
    -FN FNC
    -FN FAL of some kind, probably an 11" auto
    -Accurized M1A

    Sorry, was busy running several forum posts and getting info out. From the Danby/Johansen area of town. All the info I have is posted in the arfcom master thread I'm linking below.

    Holy Wow Batman.... that's quite a list. Whoever took it is going to attract some attention.

    Hope you recover them soon.

    Just heard on the evening news that these were stolen from a storage locker(?!!!).

    Serious bummer. Hope they were insured?

    Quite an assortment of nice guns. I sure hope that the person(s) get caught and weapons recovered. I hate the thought of a scumbag with some of those! Criminals with some of the ones listed is not a good thought.

    They must have had a BIG truck, and a lot of time, to go through that many units, and replace the locks. I guess there could be more units as yet undiscovered.

    Man, this sucks for Mike and everyone else that'll have to deal with criminals with these nice guns.

    Hope everything is found in good shape, but I'm not that hopeful.
    At most storage yards isn't there security footage?? Can we see that?

    That is seriously going to hurt. Hope they had insurance.

    That's what I was thinking. This is not a bunch of tweakers, sounds ambitious and organized. Good luck with the recovery.......scumbags.

    I can't imagine storing firearms in a mini storage. Hope it gets solved.
