    You guys see the sig rattler conversion?

    Just completed my first AR lower build. The upper was shipped completed. Had to have a friend come over to finish the buffer and brace cause I dont have an armorer's tool thing or a torq wrench. Also, I'm not a real big fan of FDE...but hopefully for $350(minus optic, Romeo5) that I spent on this...I think it will grow on me.

    Pic is hosted on photobucket, really need to find a better solution. PB has gone down the hill.

    I also really hate bright colors like blue and red on firearms. Unless they are less than lethal they should never be red or blue

    Agreed. IMO the same goes for Punisher skulls and crusader shields, that stuff is so tacky

    Since we're now in middle school, I'll return fire:

    I'm guessing you think it because I have superior taste relative to you, and gays stereotypically have good taste.

    Anyone here into muzzleloaders?

    Father in law let me borrow a knight for the early season because we are in different states and the seasons don't coincide.

    Gotta give it back at Thanksgiving, and I want to get in on the late season here as well.

    Seriously considering grabbing one of the CVA Optima 2 in stainless, or the Accura MR. Doesn't sound like there's much to be gained with the Accura over the Optima though. They have the same barrel, but the Accura is given a couple extra finishing steps. I've read online that unless you are shooting competition, you won't notice the difference. The optima is good for 1 MOA.



    I have read that CVA used to have some issues, but sounds like the newer ones are pretty good.

    I think I've settled on what I might do with the lower I have sitting around (man I love the builder on arfcom): KISS dissy, irons only, fixed stock, etc. Thoughts? It'll be a range blaster and that's about it.
    Looks cool. I'm a big fan of 'dissipators'. Not a fan of any color other than black though, especially FDE. Removable carry handle/sight or integrated?

    I'm going to build another AR soon since I also have a lower in a box somewhere at the back of the safe, and it'll be a dissipator, though I want it to have a lower 1/3 co-witnessing red dot. Nothing tacticool or 'race gun' just a practical short/medium range carbine with that nice long sight radius and long handguard aesthetic.

    Any of you guys have any tips for using Pure tung oil on a stock? I am starting to condition the new stock on my Garand. So far I have done two coats at 50/50 tung oil/mineral spirits with a light sanding of wet/dry 400 in between, one coat 75/25 tung oil/ m.s. and today did one coat 100% tung oil. Plant to wait 3 days and hit it again with 100% t.0. I am hoping that will be enough coats. Not really sure how to tell when the pores are full. Let it sit 3-4 weeks to cure and re assemble. Hopefully I don’t end up with a sticky mess.

    Apparently the CMP is starting to make calls about the 1911s, so it shouldn't be too long before we start seeing those.

    Well this opened my eyes to ammo availability. I didn’t realize the gp11 ammo was non existent at the moment and the ppu is just as scarce. I do really like the rifle though. Handled a k31 local to me and really liked it. Especially when compared to the beat to hell mosin that was on the wall next to it. The k31 was a little rougher than I liked so I passed on that particular one. Lack of ammo is a bit of a concern, but I am fairly patient and could just stock up when some becomes available, but am a little afraid at what price it may command.

    I had a k31 years ago. It was really accurate and the operation was really cool. Ammo and finding the chargers was annoying. I shot a couple of vintage matches with it and did well, but ended up selling it on

    Bingo! They had two boxes of po-po holsters, this was the only lefty I could find.

    Well this sucks. 6 months ago there is still plenty around at .75/rd. Now it seems all out of stock. I bought 480rd for $300 then.
