    Here, they started the 21 for all ammo and guns after the parkland shooting. I asked the clerk about it and he said folks complained a little, but it aint slowed things down. Still a good place for 22, and shotgun shells, and cheap pistol ammo,...

    I'd go 45 auto. Id love to have a Mechtech with a dedicated 1911 frame. If I wasnt already married to my 1911, i'd probably go 9mm, glock 17 with a mechtech. Those 33 round stick mags are mighty tempting.

    Is it a new gun? Sounds like it has some debris under the shell latch. Got a buddy with the 20 gauge and it was new, and its "tight". Those shell latches are bent in a good bit on the 20 gauge. They aint easy to remove unless you're...

    I dont like those harness slings. Im sure they work good, but they dont look good. Least in my eye. I've been pondering on having the rifle's receiver hard chromed... pending on cost. I might have that band chromed too. Not sure how long...

    Thanks for the replies. The screw in question is on the starter cover and also holds the left side chain brake. I put the brake on anytime im not cutting, so it gets a lot of use. It doesnt vibrate out, so much as it works back out. I take...

    Well I decided I dont like the band. Its not the same quality as what was on the gun. I might try to have my band modified. Not sure what Ima do.

    I dont think the Heritage has a transfer bar. It has a safety notch, and a manual safety that blocks the hammer.
