    The first M16's used a 1 in 14 twist. That was the Model 601. http://www.retroblackrifle.com/ The Model 602 incoporated the 1 in 12 twist. The 1 in 7 twisted started in 1982 or 1983 with the M16A2 for the M855 62 grain steel penetrator tip.

    I have not yet made a mistake that I didn't catch before the round saw the inside of the firearm. That doesn't mean it could not happen tomorrow. Apathy can be as dangerous as ignorance. Good catch on your squib. You'll operate with a renewed...

    I always had good luck BBQing/grilling and basting with garlic/pepper-butter. A little more chewy than chicken, but not much.

    I think you might be, in a polite and diplomatic way, referring to Texans and the pride they take in what they believe constitutes a genuine and traditional pot of chili. The vigorous and deep seated pride that Texans have in their State, their...

    I don't think anyone here has an issue with the not-so-informed crowd. The issue is with the idiots that think they know what they are talking about and the BS they spread. Nothing wrong with admitting I don't know or I am not sure so I have to...
