  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.

  11. 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!

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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. I've forgotten about those "Metro" barrel extensions. Well that will be another rabbit hole of "strange shotgun stuff", hopefully another 12 gauge doesn't follow me home just to get an extension for.

  25. 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. I was looking for a way to pop in here and write a big fat HI to all the old school guys. Remember me? The second S12 I bought was one of the FBMG ones imported with the barrel that was too short. Welded on 0/0 choke with ATF letter, LOL. 'Memba that? Still have all my saigas, and still shoot them! More than ever, actually. My S308 have always been my favorite 308, if only because its so fun to shoot.... and because before Sandy Hook I cleared out every Walmart of Tula 308 steel case, and its the only .308 I have that likes it. Still have most of my my FBMG second run m

  31. Uhh, no. It's a reinforcing stamping that is not an indexing location. This has never been a problem since the stamping is not needed for the hole and the hole is not needed for the stamping.

  32. I actually forgot that I still have my Saiga 308. I have a couple of surefire 20 round mags. I noticed my dealer has a 4 more of them. 3 25 and 1 20 rounders. I think I should grab those.

  35. 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😂.

  39. I have nothing against Portland or its people as my Father was born near there. I have been there, and it is a nice city as city's go. The nature in Oregon is breathtaking it dives you to the view than only a God could make such a place. I do not object to peaceful protests that stimulate thoughtful exchanges of Ideas between two opposing viewpoints. I have gotten over the outrageous treatment of Nam vets, as sometimes passion can move people to act in stupid harsh ways. Back then they had a central misguided reason for doing what they did but at least they had a r

  45. I joined in 2006, this place was buzzing back then... I was 18 back then. Only person that chimed in recently that was here longer is GOB.. Thing that drives me buggy is that all the activity that was here evaporated while other forums remain fairly active. One of the things that damaged this forum was several shady companies.. There was and likely still is an attitude of not allowing bad press, but that allows companies to really screw up. Once a source of information can't be trusted the viewership will drop like a rock.. It seems today like bringing up product issues would be more

  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.
