  1. I thought the same thing. It's a simple Glassbolt job, and I told him to leave it black, so it's less work than other GB jobs. It won't be overnight, but I think the easier jobs will get cranking out then the Ice Racks and the rest will come with time. If others start to see parts in the mail, it'll be safe to say Paul is putting forth the effort to make good with everyone. I like to think the gears are turning and momentum has started. Maybe something for others to do is to send Paul a letter reminding him of the job you paid for, serial number, and shipping address just to be sure he has it. Send it to the Sunnyview Salem, OR address. If you want to get your parts back, I think this is a good route to go.
  2. By the good grace of an upper power, I received my parts back from Paul yesterday. Pics attached to confirm. He included a sincere sounding note, gas port gauges, and a sticker. This REALLY made me day! Now the million dollar question, why am I the first to receive their parts? I have made a pretty hard effort in getting my parts back. I sent Paul boxes to ship my parts back on two occasions… once with a check for money to ship them and once with a prepaid label so he could just pack and ship them free to him. I will note my check was NOT cashed, and the prepaid label was NOT used. Paul finished my parts (they look AMAZING) and shipped them back to me on his own dime. I believe Paul is a good guy deep down and really did hit some troubles that turned this situation bad for all of us. I am local to the Salem/Portland area, so I filed a police report in Salem. An officer was actually able to reach Paul via phone and spoke with him. I don’t know what the phone number was, but it was not the (971) or (503) number posted on here. At Paul’s request, the officer could not release the number to me. Paul said he had had a rough year and was going through tough times. He said my parts were about half done and would have them done in a about a week and a half. That was about a month ago. A couple of weeks ago I actually went to the Molalla address that was posted on here and talked with a fellow who claimed to be Mark Pawloski but did not know of a Paul Pawloski. I did that about a week and a half ago. The man didn’t sound like Paul in the Youtube videos, but did sound like the voicemail greeting on the (971) number. I make the note that I shipped my parts to Paul 6/25/13, so I am not near the front of the line. I think Paul got scared that I was involving the authorities and was actively looking for him. I am extremely happy to have my parts back but very perplexed why I got my parts before anyone else has (at least before anyone that posts on here). Paul obviously can perform work now, and his note indicates he can finish the workload he has. I am sorry to say I have had no contact with Paul since June of 2013, so I cannot offer any assistance to anyone trying to contact him. With this, all I can say is Paul still has the parts. It sure seems like he is a man of his word that he wants to make good on his promises. The parts returned are mine. I know this by the serial on the bolt and carrier but also because I custom profiled my hammer to function with my LRBHO. After installing the internals, it test cycles and fires on snap caps. I believe Paul has everyone’s parts still and has the capability to finish them. I think he was scared that I might get to him, so he finished my parts and got them to me. I thank him gratefully for that, but plead him to make good with everyone else as soon as he can before he gets into any trouble. Another note I will make it that I never bad mouthed Paul on the forums or left him any nasty messages. All the voicemails, emails, and letters I sent were polite and professional. That may have played to my advantage; acting threatening and childish usually doesn't get you anywhere in life anyhow. If the bickering and name calling on here stops... maybe Paul will feel more obligated to help everyone else out. Could be a combination of things, but it worked for me, I got my parts back from Paul. Finished.
  3. 25 would be my first choice for sure. One box of shells per mag would be amazing! I'd definitely buy 2 or 3. Second choice would be a 15.
  4. Thanks, I'll see if I can get a hold of him or find another, now I know they're made. A few years ago people ordered these kits from rusmiitary. It would be worth sending them an email eventhough I haven't seen them bring any new items in for over a year. For clarification you've stated that you're looking for the lever. I'm assuming you don't need the spring, plunger, and nut that are also included in the kits. I have an extra plunger laying around. Pm me if you need that as well. Thanks for the input, but the lever is all I need if it is the same. I've gotten a couple leads I'm following up on, but so far nothing is for certain.
  5. Thanks, I'll see if I can get a hold of him or find another, now I know they're made.
  6. I'm looking to buy if still available. PM me.
  7. I bought it from a gun shop on GunBroker. It was new, not used or modified. If you use standard mags, the lever will trip the hold, so all you do is dremel a little spot of material out, so the lever lowers enough to not hold the bolt. I believe the receiver looks about the same. The lever is so rare I fear I wont be able to find one. If someone has one, I'll pay a huge deposit on it if you ship it to me, so I can fabricate a replicate. My father is very good with making custom pieces and could do it if he had one to compare it to.
  8. Yes, it is a factory installed LRBHO. The magazine has a taller follower to make it work. The bolt hold lever is different, and that's the only part I can't find to replace the internals of my S12
  9. Hi, A few years ago I bought an IZ 109 Saiga 12 with the last round bolt hold open. About a year ago, I sent the bolt and internals to Pauly Steelin for a polish job, and have been caught in the middle of his disappearance, so I fear I will never see my parts again... So my search has started for the rare LRBHO lever. I can get replacement parts for everything else he has, but not the special LRBHO lever. Does anyone know where I can find one?
  10. I would buy at least two 10 rounders and two 25 rounders. Those would make the most sense for my shooting needs.
  11. Nobody knows where he lives. This has been covered. Parts were either mailed to his PO Box or to an address he no longer lives at.
  12. I'm in Oregon but won't be able to make it to Salem for a while due to work. I plan to stop by the Sheriff's office and try to get the ball rolling or at least get some guidance on what path to take here. I have been extremely patient and giving to Pauly (actually sending him a box and a check to send my parts back), but I am just tired of waiting. I know there is a poll going to collect names of people involved, but I will also collect info (Names, email, last 3 digits of serial, whatever you feel comfortable with) and personally bring it to Salem to see what they can do for us. PM me if you want your name and info compiled into my folder. Full disclosure, it'll be probably 2 or 3 weeks until I am able to make the trip. I am only 15 miles from Salem, but work hours that don't allow me to swing by during their operating hours.
  13. What about unlocking his account and allowing him to post? Or admins can message him trying to engage conversation. Worth a shot isn't it?
  14. JT, I sure hope that is the case. I was getting tired of waiting and wondering, now I'm getting tired of this thread as well. Did he make any mention of why he wouldn't return parts unfinished to those that have requested it?
  15. I'd like to enforce what Odd Man Out said. All we want is out parts completed and shipped back to us. Most are willing to pay additional for shipping or have parts returned unfinished. I am willing to do either. Please contact us or ship our parts back. I tried to make it easiest on you when I shipped a box and funds for shipping to return my parts to me either finished or not. Like I stated in my letter, no hard feelings, I'd just rather have a functioning S12.
