  1. I'm waiting on a barrel and dies to get made for a new wildcat. (Should be any day now!) Basically it's a 300 Norma Mag necked down to .270. If it makes the projected velocity numbers it should stay supersonic past 1,700 yards using the Nosler Accubond LR. That should be a fun one to shoot.

  2. I've been a member here since 2008. Don't know how many are still around from that time, but I'm guessing there are still quite a few who may remember me. After a devastating house fire in 2014, in which I lost nearly every thing I owned (got a few tools out in the aftermath, and a few firearms, two of which were my S12 and my 7.62x39), I had to start over completely. Been doing a lot of different things in the last 6 years, but thought it was time to get back to my AK roots. Hope you all have been doing okay. You'll see my ugly mug hanging out here again.

  4. So a dream of mine has always been to have a safe room. Living in the southern portion of tornado alley, many us either have spaces that are reinforced or underground. Moved recently and finlly converted our reinforced tornado shelter into a gun safe room as well. It’s not all that big at 80 sqft, but the only way to get to it is via a secret entrance, and it also doubles as my man cave and reloading room. Still some more work to do.

  5. Scored these yesterday afternoon. Price was a little more than I'd like... But I'm also thinking the days of "30 dollars a thousand" are long since past...😔 Suck it!!😅😂😅

  9. Great to see this thread brought back to life Mike. I still have the S12 and the Monster Brake. Here's a great little tune about cunalingus that I hope you will enjoy.

  12. Thank You! Now play and do not look back. I am loving my retirement. Wife is addicted to police shows on tv. You would think she would have had enough of the real thing. I hate most of them but watch with her because she is my babe. Its time to reinvent yourself . I very seldom think about what I used to do and very few I worked with ever look me up. Good Luck and god bless You!

  16. There is a gas puck in there, it is like an intermediate gas piston to cycle the bolt. A regular AK doesn't have that. So it could be that had been stuck before with dried grease and you just loosened it up. Why not just take off the gas plug and pull out the puck and see if that was it.

  17. Cadiz gun works did an underfolder conversion on a Saiga-12 years ago. The recoil was described as "brutal" if I remember correctly. Cobra did a polymer block external and slipped it on one of his as well. I can't recall much beyond that it couldn't open/ close over magazines. I put a similar polymer external block on my 7.62x39 without changing out the rear trunnion. It has the classic underfolder wobble, but if I get tired of it I can still go back to a fixed stock or folder.

  18. It has been pretty quiet. Not like the hey day with the new people asking the same questions every week. I miss the earlier days when we were modding parts out of whatever we could. Not saying the guys who spun up to make parts didn't do an awesome job. Just seemed like a tighter community of people who tinker. The import ban basically killed the tinkering/modding so there isn't too much traffic.

  24. And... How does this 300 dollar rifle which is more a 500 dollar rifle shoot??? You tell me... All are 5 shot groups at 200 yards. Sure some aren't this good... But for the most part... THEY ARE consistently this size! I'll take it!!😃😃

  28. I have had the same issues with my 40DS as Fitty did, (Hammer locking up, and not being able to disengage the cylinder). Brand new out of the box. I sent it back to Chiappa. Chiappa fixed the issue, and sent it back to me. Now, after firing about six rounds, The trigger was locking up. What I would do, is, drop the cylinder then put it back in , and rotate until it locked in, then shoot a couple more .357mag rounds. These issues make the gun worthless due to the fact that I can no longer trust it to work. Such Bullshit....

  29. I got into launching big chunks of soft lead out of a .450 Bushmaster. 300 grain, powder coated ran through the suppressor knocked a whitetail down with almost no report using Unique powder. I'd like to experiment with using Trail Boss instead because I think I can get a more consistent load. The .40 cal casings make great 275 grain hollow points. 10mm are bigger 350-375 grain hollow points, but swaging them down we broke a RCBS Rockchucker. So we probably won't be going that heavy again. The 275s won't drop as fast as the 350s but I'm a sucker for throwing bigger boulders when p

  30. if you look at the magazine itself, where the latch of the gun is supposed to engage it.... you take a fine file, and ONE SWIPE AT A TIME take a swipe from the back edge of the built out nub, then one swipe from the underside of the built out nub where the magazine release lever rests. like was said one at a time until it just barely fits and locks in. this is normal. take your time it will lock in nice and tight. edit to add - i threw my factory lynx magazine out. it caused many FTfeed issues due to poor tolerances on the metal feed lips.... i was also the factor

  39. 2013 ammo production was very dodgy stuff.. My own homemade reloads from 2009 are better than most of the factory bulk pack stuff in 2013. I had some federal that was not sized right and the metal bases would not seat in anything, not even a double barrel, ended up having to run it through my reloading sizer to use it, a little dangerous to size live ammo but nothing exploded. My new policy on ammo buying, buy it when it's not made in a rush.. I loaded up pretty heavy from 2015 to the end of 2019. When the panic buying started I stopped buying pretty much everything.

  41. Thanks guys, and it is good to still see you both around. It is still a work in progress, and I do wish I had more space. One of the greatest positives has been moving and organizing a lot of the firearm stuff I have bought and stashed over the years. I actually know what I have now, and I definitely won’t be buying anymore AK-47 magazines ever😂.

  42. At work we're having trouble getting parts from suppliers (Defense). I'd think Shannon's in the same boat as the rest of us, maybe more so, as he's just a little guy, not a huge .gov contractor. He's a stand-up guy. He'll do you right.

  44. Still check in from time to time. The drum wars, lol! Bringing the MD-20 was definitely a battle! Even when the wall was breeched there was still a battle to reach to command center, lol. I remember the reliability service to get the wraithmaker’s bad feedlips to not jam the gun. Yeah, that’s pretty much all it was that was wrong with their drum, the feedlips. Had they been better guys I would have told them back then, competition or not... They finally figured it out though but not until they had destroyed themselves, lol!

  45. Still here. Still posting. Still a good site. I enjoy people who speak their mind...when they have one. There's a good bunch on here mostly, and the few 'tards that sneak in are swiftly dealt with either by mods or heckled without mercy by members.

  46. Still here. I don't know if I qualify as an old timer, but I have been here for a while. Long enough to remember the daily "I bought the gunfixer plug and my gun still doesn't run low brass" threads.

  48. Haven't posted in a long time here, but this is worth it. Here is a chance for a few drums. I have 1 - 20 round drum and a couple of 30rd drums available. Those are unused - BRAND NEW. I am looking for $390 for the 20 round drum and $430 for the 30 round drum (I'll pay for shipping). Here are the pics that I just took. 20 round drum has a cover, but the 30 round doesn't. Also this counts towards 3 parts for 922. Please send me a PM if you're interested. Thanks! -Igor
