    With the pandemic raging, I wanted to take a minute to tell all my bros on S-12 to hang in there and don't let the fake news get you down. We'll get this licked. Stay safe.

    I'm pretty sure I had this crap in December. I ran a fever off and on for a few days. That coupled with some other issues was really clobbering me. I had a dry cough for weeks and never thought much about it. A lot of people around here are saying they had a similar experience before this stuff got sensationalized.

    One thing this has, I hope, shown this country is that you can't depend on a hostile communist regime for many of the essential items a country needs to thrive and survive. China is not our friend and the faster we divest ourselves from dependence on them the better. Praying for all here and our country.

    I'm not sure if it will ever happen, but I have been wanting to move somewhere that I can shoot on site. This would have to happen in an area where ground water isn't an issue and in Open Rural zoning, which would generally be on the Northwest area in this county. I would dig a pond as deep as I could legally get away with and off of that pond I would dig at least one lane or a loop above the clay layer or at least above where I might expect maximum water level to be during the wet season. Dirt from the pond and lane or loop would be used to hide the lanes (blend from existing grade to top of berms) at the same time as creating a more generous berm by the lane being down below existing grade. I would like to not be able to see the lanes at all from the home, but at least be able to fire down one of the lanes from inside of my shop. That's kind of the point, open the door of the shop, wheel a custom shooting bench to the door, and fire from the comfort of shade and AC or go down to the lane and fire. All of my steel targets are on stands and angled down. The target design and having the actual shooting area below surrounding grade should eliminate ricochet. As far as landscaping goes, I would let everything grow wild except immediately around the house and shop, and a line from the shop to the target area. I'm not a fan of creating a lot of landscaping to maintain.

    Highpockets... Someone spent a bit of money to put it together that way from the original factory configuration. Change anything you don't like, and keep what you do. If it's the way you like it...then you scored a great find!! You didn't have to mess with it to get what you wanted! It's only more desirable to someone who wants their rifle set up that way. If you're happy with it... It sure beats having to source all the aftermarket parts and do the work yourself... You get the benefit without the hassle!!😁😁😁

    A brand name only impresses snobs. I've shot many guns others have brought to the range, name brand, off-brand, and homebrew. Stars and clunkers both in most of them. Look how people used to turn up their noses at a Savage Tactical, but spent $$$ for a (insert high speed low drag name here) that shot the same give or take a very small margin. ...bless their little hearts.

    I trust nothing about all that we have heard about this. I think it is the most significant 'slight of hand' trick every played on American citizens. They are trying to keep us distracted from something else or they are setting us up to be accepting of something we would otherwise never allow.

    I think we've had quite enough of Chinese curses for awhile. All counrties affected by this escaped Chinese bioweapon known as Covid 19 need to tally up the total cost of this pandemic as close as they can and subtract it from any loans they have with China, as well as use it pay off any money owed to them for goods and/or services, then bill them for the balance, payable immediately.

    Still able to get filters for my mask around here. I'm running a P100 rated for acid vapor. Entertainment business is tits-up. Snagged the last 3 boxes of auto match, and the buckshot and AR/AK are gone. Glad I put up 4500 in 5.56 strippers when I did. AK's and S-12's are on hot standby. Repacked the freezer while everyone was fighting over toilet paper and bottled water. Won't be too bad if this goes six months, but will need resupply if it goes longer. Don't want to hit the bunker if I can help it. Most of the stocks are holding pretty good as they're in foods and paper, so we have money. Mom is so glad I'm at home with her right now! She'd be real scared if she was alone.

    I don't know what to say. Really. All these people hoarding should have their asses kicked. Literally. This shit is just unreal. Yes, China should be held accountable for this shit. Just as with the other shit sandwich viruses that came from them. But they will not. China's grasp is far too powerful. Now, as for the US, we CAN come away from this with our economic heads out of our asses IF we learn to start cutting reliance on them. We shall see. But I believe to many Politicians as well as Business's have deep pockets with them. AND I hope the media gets it in their ass for all of these maniacal and relentless BS reporting they are doing. Stay safe, stay smart and this too shall pass.

    I am pretty sure I have one left over from when I modified an MD-20 for use in a Vepr-12 magwell. Email me your address and I'll send it to you if I can find it. My memory is very bad but I could have sworn I saw it today looking through some old parts bins.

    Well we are back home in FL and we came home with a cooler full of pheasants. This is one of the best years we have had. Carlos our 14 year old champion black lab and 2 time cancer survivor went out just weeks after cancer surgery" demanded to go "and even though he had a hard time keeping up he still retrieved a few birds. My big brother would not have it any other way. Our dogs did well Manny, Jet and Carlos what a team. After Thanksgiving we went to Nebraska and then through the blue mountains on our way to Charleston Brought back a few guns to work on for next year . Had a great time. The wife said it was the best time we have ever had.

    And the right grade of steel, and the ability to precisely heat treat. ARs are easy to make because all the pressure bearing components are non serialized in USA. Those are the hard bits to make safely at home. Europe doesn't care about receivers for that reason, they care about barrels, bolts, trunions, etc. Hence serials on those parts in EU guns. Import AKs tend to have serials on both parts as a compromise to the US system. The S12 and derrivatives got approved using the system from Europe, without any thought towards making them easy to clone or remake. There's no money in that for the manufacturer, and no surplus market, since it was never a mass issued gun to turn into parts kits. Further, all the pockets in an 80% Ar receiver are vertical plunge operations. Everything tricky has already been done. An AK trunion has a lot of complex geometry that isn't just going to happen with a drill press. It would be pretty hard to measure without custom jigs, let alone make. Part of why ARs are clever, is that he borrowed johnson's clever thinking about how to make easier to machine precise lugs, then made it in two pieces, so that it is a single broaching operation which can be cleaned up on a lathe, then joined to the barrel, then heat treated as a unit.

    3 generations of hunters which included my big brothers grandson, watched as the young man shot his first rooster on his first day. Grampa and all of us were real proud. He is 14 and a pro trap shooter but learned that he had to be a lot faster. Getting pheasant every day and I clean them fast and perfect. holding up well, snow tonight which means a great 2 more days before we leave for Nebraska. There is still grease in the bearings of this old car. You all have a great Thanksgiving I will.

    I know two who perished that day, one in the Pentagon, and one in the south tower. I know someone who should have been in a room that morning where everyone died, but as fate would have it, they overslept and missed the fatal meeting where friends and colleagues died, and had survivor's guilt for a very long time thereafter. A dear friend, I was best man at his wedding, saw American Airlines flight 77 streak over South Washington Blvd just a few hundred yards ahead of him and slam into the Pentagon, his shouts into his cell phone piercing the ears of another friend with whom he was speaking at that moment. Late that morning I ventured out of my office just blocks from the White House. Driving north out of DC I saw the standard three helicopter Presidential fleet flying their usual route over the Maryland suburbs toward Camp David. This time something was very was different. They were being orbited by an F-15. Never saw that before or since. We are just a few who shall never, ever, forget.

    I believe that the problem is the lack of home training. Most of these 'sjw' types (and almost all the shooters are convinced of their superior social justice superiority) have no home training. Many have been mostly raised by Socialistic Democratic teachers unions. All Public Employee Unions are BY DEFINITION an organization that is there to put the their will above the will of the People. The are net EDUCATED as much as INDOCTRINATED.

    Just my two cents worth: "Bvamp" mentions P.C. Well ... my theory is our society ... or the West in general .... is paying for the nutty ideas of the political left AND the emasculation of our society in which males are so often held in contempt now. It's like a form of racism is being aimed at guys for imaginary reasons which somehow become dogma anyway. As I recall, much of this began to gain steam during the first Clinton term with the imposition and mainstreaming of P.C. which itself is rooted in communistic ideology. The left always tries to give something a nicer name. Add to this how American churches (whether liberal or conservative) tend to have feminine cultures (even if there is a male pastor) that cater to women, and the left's appeal to maternal instinct, and it's a recipe for problems. I'd like to share how I am tired of "Progressive Auto Insurance " commercials that feature beta-male guys, and moments like how one of the last Star Wars movies featured Laura Dern as some "I know better than you" character. The last Star Wars films are the result of beta-males and women being in charge. Sad ... really sad what they did. I am not an Alpha-male/Special Operations kind of guy. However, I (and thousands of other men) am tired of society-wide themes of contempt, criticism, invalidation, marginalization, and suspicion of men - especially white men. I am convinced we are seeing the liberal left do to our society what my emotionally abusive mother did to me. The only difference is scale. A demand for power rooted in insecurity is at issue. Basically, the left is projecting its collective insecurity onto society. Men are the target and being forced to pay for the left's self-loathing. As for this forum's audience, I am deeply concerned by the thought that today's society could not win W.W.II like the Greatest Generation did. We had a more masculine/traditional society then. It wasn't perfect, but it had the foundation that was needed to win a two-front war. This trend of praising & uplifting all things feminine, producing beta-males, and stigmatizing all things masculine must stop. The political left is much like a woman, and its chronic, narcissistic need for affirmation is costing our country dearly. Basically, President Trump is hated by the left because he is masculine and isn't going to tolerate the left's crap. He's a "bump" in the road of emasculating our country. I am not against women achieving things and having power like Margaret Thatcher because she was cognitively masculine. I am against women achieving things and having power like Billary or A.O.C. because are they narcissistic and project their issues onto the rest of the whole country. It boils down to those in society who are "feminine" against those who are "masculine." I'm afraid (and I admit this is a fear of mine) that things will reach a point where eventually those on the conservative right are going to have to "bitch slap" the left one day in order to restore normalcy. How that will happen is up to speculation. I've noticed a tendency in the left/women to let power go to their heads. Enough is enough. Meanwhile ... more and more guys are getting robbed of any affirmation they deserve & need as males because of the left's twisting of society and marginalization of men. We must start producing real men again (not just sources of paychecks) or else society will fall. And that is the plan: bring down the west by emasculating society. So ... I blame the political left's paradigms and programs for a lot of these shootings because of what they're doing to boys & men in our society. It's like a dysfunctional family where mommy demands power no matter how much it hurts her son because her antics squelches his growth. The democrats keep demanding more & more power. Something's gotta give. Unfortunately, it did break this weekend in the minds of two guys. I'm not excusing their actions, but the liberal left needs to take a collective look in the mirror. I hope this makes sense.

    i am going on the record. where i am from in NY, we were the third largest per capita gun ownership county in the entire USA. then the handgun permit renewal thing happened, that was part of the downfall, then the taxes, then more gun laws that dont work, we left.; wherei grew up and was taught my ways, it wasnt 2 or 3 or 4. it was 20 30 40 that you even talk about. at the time i decided to leave ny, i think dutchess county ny was beat by somewhere in cali, and somewhere in texas, fourth place was penn somewhere. i love my country. i am not giving up my basic beliefs for some political crap or some soccer mom up the street that a i never met. so i came to florida

    I wrote my US Representative last night about the possibility of a No Confidence vote against Pelosi's rule. I asked him to share it with all the other Republican reps, and if in agreement, to try to get a dem to make the motion, and then join with that dem in support. This could get some know nothing like AOC into the speakership and end any chance of winning anything in 2020. This could be fun to watch! However, it might not be wise to interrupt an enemy in the midst of making a mistake.

    Hard to blame heat treatment when there are no visible broken parts other than what is normal with a kaboom. None of the pressure parts are broken that I can see in any of the photos. I screwed around with my saiga and I could almost get the bolt into the carrier in a way that would fire out of battery, I did not want to damage my shotgun so I stopped without forcing the parts together.. So it's "possible" that this is user error.. Also possible that a chain reaction of gun issues and incorrect modification could have also resulted in this issue.. To me this looks mostly like a OOB firing than a critical part failure... The other option is case head separation which is pretty much non existent in shotguns. One thing that strikes me is that the bolt is not in the carrier when installed into the gun. And the damage to the cam lug seems inconsistent to what would happen if the bolt was correctly installed in the carrier.. Which leans more toward user error. You have to work pretty hard to get it in wrong, but I'm pretty sure it can be done. With the bolt installed wrong it is possible for the firing pin to be struck without the bolt even close to being locked. A couple photos of the Trunnion would be really nice, and the back of the bolt carrier. Because that could be the issue.

    Now I understand. Have you fired a mag through it? Does it cycle fine once it chambers a round and fires? Still think it is a hang up between the bolt carrier and hammer. With that being said I have had more than one firearm from Classic Arms needing work. I have stopped doing business with them after the second. I would send it back and let them fix it.
