  1. My mother was born and raised just 2 blocks from where the riots have burnt a good portion of it. I was born close to the area and remember spending the summer with my grandparents there. It was a great place to live. But like all cities the middle and upper middle class moved out of downtown Minneapolis and went to the suburbs. Minneapolis has become like many cities only attractive to the lower class. Crime is high and tax dollar intake is not enough to sustain it. It will take years to rebuild this area if it ever will. Now they have voted to end the police force? This city is no

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  6. Just loaded 400 rounds of 300 blackout and 400 round of 556. Went to our Local Farm store Rural King to get pork rinds and the the gun department was packed with dozens of people filling out paperwork or buying ammo. One way or another things will even out. The real truth of Life is we all have a capacity to Hate. Getting over it is the real task even when we know we will always be hated. Defeat your enemy's and then move on. This is what will bring us to normal

  7. It is likely about 19-3/16". There really isn't much to gain there without going SBS. I'd leave it as-is. If you are just bored and pretty good with your hands maybe it is worth it, but it definitely wouldn't be worth it to pay someone else to do it.

  11. 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!!😁😁😁

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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 m

  17. 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 t

  20. 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.

  21. 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 .

  22. 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 m

  23. 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.

  25. Hi Guys: It's been a long time since I've posted here with my 10/22 project rifle pics. In the meantime, it seems like our country has lost its mind. I can't help thinking the dems are trying to steal this election as if their lives depend upon it. Perhaps they do if the Durham report indicts a lot of folks. I hope it does. I can't help thinking a lot of violence & partisanship would dissipate if Obama went to prison ... or had an "accident" of some sort. He set a terrible precedent. I don't doubt he's orchestrating a lot of what's happening due to his antagonistic/rebellious/se

  27. 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.

  28. I recently picked up an unconverted Saiga-12 from my LGS and found my way here by way of the AK Files, the consensus there was this was THE place to learn about all things Saiga-12. It was a consignment sale and came complete with a Wraithmaker 20-round drum, two 5-round Izzy mags and one 10-round AGP Arms magazine. I was quite surprised when I initially handled it as I thought it was new, it barely had the typically safety lever scratch which normally happens after wiping the safety up and down a few times on any AK. The salesman at the LGS said if I was at all unsatisfied with it that

  35. Here are photos of my S308 barrel threading to M17x1 adventure! I started by removing SGM bolt on break (which I'm selling in the classifieds) to expose the front sight block. I then knocked out the pins and used my makeshift aluminum punch (.410 snap cap) to knock the front sight off the barrel. I then bored out the back of the front sight by .04" by going around with a dremel grinding stone. I know it's not precision work, but it's just the front sight and it's an AK. In hindsight, I would have sent it to Dinzag to have it done because of the fast turnaround time and the

  36. There's a screw under the recoil spring. Remove the receiver cover, then the recoil spring and guide, and there's your screw. Might be one I the bottom of the receiver as well. Once the screws are out... A side to side wiggle will work the stock part out of the receiver. Get on it. Don't be bashful... It may take some tweaking.

  41. Agreed. Another suppressor. Plus the fact that right now language is in the HPA draft bill returning the $200 bucks should the HPA pass during our very long can processing time wait? PS: Elite Iron used to frown on home done barrel muzzle threading. Their cans are very precise. Potential baffle strikes. They used to want to do it themselves. Dunno about now.

  44. Is the chamber clear? Could there be a broken chamber flag stub in the barrel getting in the way? You can try taking out the bolt and carrier and looking for abnormal wear or excessive missing paint. If you don't see anything obviously wrong, reassemble, pull back the charging handle and let it fly forward at full speed several times(don't ride it forward). Does it still hang up? Dissamble and look for new wear on the bolt, carrier, rails etc. Feel free to post photos or videos here as this community is very knowledgeable and helpful but it's hard to give suggestions without seeing

  46. We always need to remember that... If involved in a 100% clear cut legal self defense shooting, you will still more than likely be initially treated as a criminal by LE. Be cool! Take everything with a smile and good attitude, say as little as possible and talk to a lawyer ASAP. Lawyer before statement if at all possible. Best to have already retained & talked to a lawyer, and know what he wants you to say.
