    The only thing that I have shot in mine is M852 or M118LR. I wasn't expecting much when I got them. I just wanted the cheap parts. I do all my on work including chambering so I looked at them as a cheap parts source.

    Some states, it's the sheriff. Other states, it's the state police. in Louisiana, you never deal with the sheriff unless for finger printing. The state police are the ones issuing the permits for us.

    Yes it's the same lower, however, the lowers are not standardized like the AR15's. The ones that take the Stoner/Magpul mags are becoming the most common.

    I had a bunch more that I lost in a hard drive failure. BlackPowder Cartridge News ran a series very detailed factual accounts of the Buffalo Hunting era that included shipped records for hides going east and supplies going West.
