    they sell it as a legal length rifle too. there are also companys making extended buffer tubes that make the arm brace as comfortable as a standard stock. I'm in the process of accumulating parts to put together a 5.56 right now. Ive got an lower...

    yup and every factory round of ammo you've ever shot is run through a final size die to insure it runs in even marginal guns. You think maybe its why they call it a "FACTORY" crimp die

    The electronic stuff are crutches. Sometime those things may not work and you will have to learn to be a rifleman, rather than a tech junkie.

    650s were designed with a case feeder in mind and without one there not nearly as handy. A 550 case feeder is an add on and the one I tried blocked the ability to put a case on myself if I didn't want to use the case feeder. Heres my take on it. A...

    I know you cant do it in texas but what ive done in my yard is take a cardboard box and fill it full of snow and pack it down a bit and it will stop most bullets. When your done dump the snow in a wheel barrow and bring it into the garage and let it...

    Ive found the problem claimed way over rated. Ive shot 10s of thousands of 9s 40s and 45s that have gone through a factory crimp die and find at least in those platforms it doesn't hurt a thing. I also will add that in a black gun my main concern is...

    heres my take on a DE. My buddy has two. One a 44 and the other a 50ae. there kind of fun to shoot because recoil is so mild for the power your getting. But there HUGE. to heavy for a belt holster and about as heavy as a light rifle. Even with my...

    waksupi replied to a thread Wood Walk Question in Muzzleloading.
    If they are anything like our woods walk, expect targets up to around 100 yards. Govern yourself accordingly. Take along both, get a look at the range before you go shoot if possible. That would answer your question.

    It turns over just fine, and "almost" fires sometimes. Timing belt was replaced a year ago. It hasn't been driven much over the years, 138,000 miles on it. I'm wondering about the fuel pumps?

    My '88 Ranger 2.3 fuel injected died on the side of the road yesterday. I figured it had got wet, as I'd been driving through slush for about ten miles. Lost power like I was out of gas, switched tanks, nope. Today I change plugs, rotor,...

    my 9mm ar15 carbine is flat out the most fun gun I own. As cheap to shoot as a 22 these days to boot. Ill probably wait for a 40 because I already have the 9 but I might even talk myself into one in 9 too.
