    New Saiga 223... New problems

    The Yugo mags are longer front-to-back than the others - you would need to trim the rear of the magazine OR lengthen the rear of the mag well and put a flat face on the center support rivet in order for them to lock up. Check out NoDak Spud's photos of their NDS-Y556 UF receiver to see what I mean.

    New WA SBR bill is here: WRITE YOUR REPS

    Thanks for the clarification. I wasn't entirely sure how that whole last day thing played out.

    New WA SBR bill is here: WRITE YOUR REPS

    It made it through the 3rd reading yesterday and passed the Senate, which as I understand it means it should go to the House for a vote: http://apps.leg.wa.gov/billinfo/summary.aspx?bill=5956&year=2013 Interesting to note that the House version covers both SBRs and SBSs: http://apps.leg.wa.gov/billinfo/summary.aspx?bill=2475&year=2014 [edited for clarity, then added House version]

    M77 PAP .308 AK pictures

    Makes you wonder how hard an adapter would be, given that Mossberg's MVP Patrol rifle takes both M14 and SR25-style mags.

    Anyone else into Tomahawks?

    I took a tomahawk-making class earlier this year, taught by Darryl Nelson of Puyallup, WA. This is some of his work: This is the 2nd one I made. It's a 'mouse' 'hawk, made from folded and forge-welded angle iron, with a hammer poll. Hot: Cold: Done: The first one I made, I fucked up the eye when I welded the head shut. It wound up being too big for a mouse handle, but too small for a full-sized handle. I also had a hard time getting the edge to curve properly. Other than the goofy handle sticking up an inch past the eye (which I suppose I could trim), it looks a lot like #2, but uglier. Dollar bill included to give a sense of size. This is the third and last one I made. It's forged from rectangular bar stock; the eye is hand-punched, with a hooked poll, and a charred haft: I almost fucked up the eye on this one as well; I stretched one side out too much, weakening the eye. Some judicious welding kept it useable. The class was a hoot. And they all throw nicely, even the first one with the goofy handle and edge.

    like the name says...
  8. [snip] Oh, and Poland also recently started replacing their older reinforced fiberglass 5.56 Beryl magazines with a blue/green composite clear magazine that has NO reinforcement. It apparently passed all of their military requirements in testing. This is one of the reasons why Beryl mags have been trickling into the US market in the last year or two. Poland, being part of ISAF, actually uses this shit in current wartime conditions. The Serbs aren't using metal reinforcements in their composite 5.56 mags, and I believe that the South Africans didn't/don't in their polymer R4 mags. Of course, it might be easier to do with 5.56 because the curvature isn't as pronounced. ...and yeah - I'd definitely love to see Magpul come out with 5.56 mags.

    Medical Device Excise Tax?

    You've got it the wrong way 'round. It's adding medical devices to those manufacturers and importers needing to pay an excise tax, not adding the other stuff to the category of medical devices. The other manufacturers/importers were already paying that excise tax - fishing gear has been taxed since the 1950s, for instance.
  11. Lotsa places use shredded tires for backstop material. I could see that being... problematic with tracers.

    223 steel magazines

    Go big or go home: 50-rounders, like the Galils. I kid. I'm mostly in the market for 30s, but a souce of 20s would be cool.
