    i sent out a money order last week thursday from california to alabama for a no.1 mk.3 enfield and as of yesterday(saturday) the seller hasnt received it yet. this is my first buy from a private party and i was leery going into the deal but he has 2 or 3 positive transactions that i traced down. is a week too long for the mo to get there, shouldnt it have gotten there no problem by now? my gut really trusts this guy as he has several positive transactions that ive researched and he has kept in communication with me. im wondering if i should give it a few more days before i begin the trace on it? i probably should have sent it return receipt but i didn't. thanks for any advice....
