    I know where you're coming from, I understand.... But. STFU and stop further incriminating yourself, here and elsewhere. The man said, "keep it", so keep it, your sheriff's department is perhaps 2A friendly? But seriously, STFU about it. Just my $0.02

    These looks cool and are just straight slab side prototypes. Wouldn’t take much ribbing, etc, to really dress them up either...

    I haven't bought anything in quite awhile. Yesterday I reloaded eighty five 30-06 rounds, though. Kinda feels like I bought a bunch of ammo.

    I second the css 10 rounders. The small promag drum is okish but the css mags are a world of greatness

    Favorite is kind of a "for what" thing. Practical purpose and fun: S12/vepr, The AR as a generic idea because it is generally good, and is a good platform for me to tinker around on, TBD I like SA/DA 9mm. So far the berettas and clones seem as shootable or better than most of the others I have tried, but I don't love the control placement, and the grips are a bit wide. I do like the S&W M&P line up in general. Probably more practical than the all metal DA/SA stuff. Just not as special feeling. Probably the S&W 66 6" is the most satisfying handgun for me to shoot though. And I really enjoy the feel of the old long recoil shotguns like Browning auto 5, Most rifles to me, are kinda blah from a kinesthetic standpoint. But the ~10" 300 BO pistol or SBR with subs just feels fun to shoot. Hard to explain. It just feels happy and easy to use well.Even nicer with a can, which I really want.

    A. Yes. B. ... court? I really doubt it. I have been paying a lot of attention to what the BATFE has been doing in edge cases for the last decade or so. They almost never litigate. They threaten, and plea bargain, and if the defendant insists on court, they drop it. They just can't afford to lose, and they are way past their statutory authority. Moreover, they are enjoying the ability to have inconsistent definitions and apply them secretly and at will on an individual basis. Once they argue one definition of anything in court, they are stuck with that definition and interpretation of the law and they have to apply it to everyone. So they also can't afford to win a case, and be confined. They do not want to give up the arbitrary power. They only pulled this most recent crap, because NRA and Trump told them to do it and that no one else would call them on acting beyond their statutory authority. Judges actually have to rule by applying the statute to the defendant's facts, reading in the light most favorable to the public. BATFE is just so far beyond statutory bounds here that they couldn't make a coherent case. Even if they pushed it in a favorable jurisdiction for them, that opens the door to a circuit split, and that would push it up to the supreme. They can't afford that. So better to stick to vague public threats and individualized secret specific threats and plea deals.

    I cut up 5 that I made in 2012 or 2013 yesterday I could weld them back together in another 20 minutes if I wanted to. However, there is no way that anyone could make a legal case that I am currently in possession of a bump stock. There was a local buyback, and I would have taken the money, cause I need car parts more than toys, and frankly I would have probably donated a little to SAF or something too. This whole thing is funny given that the average AR stock can be made into a bump stock with a stick of wood and 3 screws in just a couple minutes, or that you can make a lightning link or DIAS in under a half hour from sheet metal or wire.

    A polymer double stack could look really nice. Even cooler than an single stack actually. Just knowing it has more capacity in a shorter length will help the look as well... My vision for a Saiga-12 double stack is to have a comparable price to a single stack. Not some jacked up price that keeps single stacks viable... What happened to the Mossberg mag won’t be happening again. Not in price or design... Prices of those have come down a lot though. It’s easy to find a 20rd for $70 to $80 now but still high in my opinion. The truth of it is a single stack mag can’t even compete in a price war with a double stack. It takes less material to make a 10rd double than it does a 10rd single. That also means it will be lighter than it’s single stack counterpart. Being shorter and closer to the gun will also mean it will be better balanced and will have less recoil and backlash forces on it as well. Make no mistake that a polymer double stack for the Saiga-12 on my watch would be second to none, including OEM mags. Making everything else VERY obsolete. The market would be absolutely flooded with so many used single stacks... I also have something that will make all prior drums just as obsolete as doubles will make single stacks. Patent pending on that as well..

    Yeah they rolled out a really cheap Saiga-12 magazine, and it looks like a lot of them went to dealers.. So not really surprising. Selling them directly as OEM helps, since there is a stigma about only buying original factory magazines. Of course the SDS magazines are NOT factory magazines but are actually made by the importer, but hey how many gun buyers look that close? The market right now wants cheap... It may have demand for 3000 $29-34 magazines, but how much demand is there for a double stack is likely based on price. If the magazine is priced like the mossberg ones I doubt people are going to be buying 10 at a time. And can people justify the cost over a drum? Is the double stack more or less cool looking? Hard to say without spending the money to find out. I have found forums not to always represent the average customer, forums are generally populated by enthusiast, the average customer is generally a casual buyer, and the ratio is something like 10 or 20 causal buyers to each enthusiast. So it is entirely possible to have something that a forum loves but has really weak sales.

    Took him out to shoot it yesterday....He loves it! Our accuracy sucked, as we were shooting toward a setting sun, and it was quite hard to see the bullseye, but hits showed up really well. He likes my SP1 even more! I've created a monster! He likes the old school look over the new M4's, and also the sound. I was even amazed at the difference in blast and signature between the barrel lengths. The 20" barrel makes a lot larger and lower frequency blast than the 16". Tommy the Commie (military E type target) didn't survive very long after we got sighted in, and started mag dumping on him. And today, he got to learn how to clean it and function check it. Lost one of my aluminum mags during the shoot. Jams up every other round. It's an old Cooper Industries. The Magpul's ran without a hitch.

    All depends on what the job is at the time.... guns are tools. And ALLLLL of mine are my faves, ....lol. But, I will agree on the S12 for my shotty.... I trust my life on it.

    Thanks. I currently have a total of 4 3/4 fingers. Fitting a pad is more of a challenge than I'd like (not to say I couldn't do it if I had to). Because the Lynx 12 has a 4 inch stock, even the small common slip-on pads (Limbsaver, Pachmayr, etc) may be too big. I've ordered a UTG Combat Pad. There are negative comments about the "spikes" on the back of the pad. If I find this to be a problem, I own a belt sander.

    Hard to argue any of those. I like SA XD better than Glock, though. And, I need an AR in .308 to be my favorite.

    Bought a “well used” genuine HK MP5A3 collapsible stock from HK Parts for my newly SBRed PTR 9ct. Looks old but works perfect. Doug

    For spring goose, the state has no capacity restrictions, fall there is. I made a call to the local game warden, hoping to get a call back and have them take a look before i go. I have converted my S12.

    Seriously scratching my head on why they didn’t rethread the barrel on this gun. But I guess I scratch my head on why they kept the same flawed gas plug when they built the base gun as well...

    Wouldn't mind a Polish Tantal AK74, that would be pretty nice. But for now the Bulgarian is great. The SLR107FR is a really nice rifle. It was this or a SAM7 Folding.

    I could've picked up an unconverted or converted with cheap junk off'a Gunjoker for less. But damn if I wouldn't have spent as much or more converting the Saiga into such a badass AK100 style rifle. I'm happy as a pig knee deep in slops.

    Picked up a new range toy, PTR 9ct, which is an HK MP5 clone in 9mm. Already sent in an Efile Form 1 so I can put on a collapsible stock to give it the MP5A3 look. Doug

    Can someone add the Lynx 12 to the forum as far as its own link?
