Default Help find Dave Nash. I have his S&W Factory experimental slide!

I recently came into possession of this slide:

Factory Experimental 5906 Slide

Factory Experimental 5906 Lever

and several others, plus some parts that also appear to have been crafted in/by the Smith & Wesson Model Shop (also known as the Experimental Shop) around the time of the transition from 2nd to 3rd gen.

I would love to share them with the Forum, but first I would like to contact the original owner and author of the linked thread, Dave Nash.
I can't PM him because his mailbox is full and I don't have his e-mail address or phone number.

If you know or can contact Dave Nash, please put him in touch with me.

Just a teaser:
The first experimental 4516
The first experimental DAO

Dave Nash can verify.

John

Why not just respond to one of his threads that you're trying to contact him. He should receive an e-mail notification of the thread response.

Or just PM him, when he is online he will see it. Right click on his Forum name:

Thanks just the same!

You don't need it. This website will send him an email to him that someone posted to a thread he started or responded to in the past.

I was not aware of that.
It (The Forum) certainly does not do that with for me with my threads.

John

But I'll try it.

Maybe you need to tinker with your settings. For me, any thread I post to I'm automatically subscribed and I get a daily email of any activity. You can just subscribe to any thread, too.

Thanks, Al!
I'm not very computer savvy.
Can you tell me what settings to tinker with that will put me in touch with Mr. Nash.

Actually, you are doing all you can except perhaps to click on his profile and find the posts he has posted on recently and add a post in hopes that he sees it.

You cannot change HIS settings, and his settings would have to be set such to send him an e-mail.

The only other idea would be to contact a forum administrator and ask them politely if they could contact him for you.

Thanks for the suggestion, although I've already gone that route.
Lee says he sent him an e-mail.
So far, no response.

This is some cool stuff.
I know the members would appreciate it.
If I don't hear from him before too long, I guess I'll just show the stuff and speculate.

Okay, I sent a PM to Dave Nash on a private forum where he's a member.

If that doesn't work, I can try a couple other guys who may have his personal email, as I can't find it among the clutter.
