Any specialized military gear typically has to be turned back in, not sold privately.

Did no one else get the joke in the last line? ".50 cal headspace and timing - $250"

Don't think that's a joke. I don't know for sure, but I have headspace gauges for my Mosin. I'd assume it was something similar.

It's possible I'm wrong, but IIRC when installing the barrel on an M2 .50 cal machine gun, if you screw the barrel all the way into the receiver, it won't cycle correctly. So, you tighten it down, then back it off 3 clicks, if memory serves. This creates the necessary "headspace". And "faulty operator headspace and timing" was a frequent joking insult in my unit.... if I'm wrong on this, somebody correct me.
