  1. Looks cool, but aside from that what is the use for it? Are you planning on poking someone with this? What would be even better if those would fly off... Nice bike btw. Pics?



    I guess the same could be said for a converted S12 with an AGP or an MD20 eh?


    Are you planning on shooting someone with that?


    wtf... did you REALLY just ask that here?

  2. I think his point is that there aren't holes in his receiver with little plastic plugs, or just open holes, or he didn't have to do any welding/grinding/painting there.


    Not a terrible idea, and it hardly looks like ass.


    Also, hotlinking to a thread in another forum is fine. Linking directly to the photos is definately poor web ettiquette. Best way to handle it is to link directly to the forum thread. No need to copy and rehost the same images. That's a waste of internet resources.

  3. It's all a bunch of BS. A couple twin .50's (one on the bow, one at the stern) should be installed on ALL of these boats. If those stupid countries want goods shipped in or out of their ports, they're gonna have to allow them in, fully armed.


    If all the shipping companies would get their heads out of their asses, that is. They don't even want their men carrying rifles onboard. They're saying "if a man on your boat has a gun, do what he tells you." They are just like all the other corporations: concerned more about the potential liability then they are about your life as their employee.


    Those crews won't be armed unless they are forced to be armed by the government. That will never happen. So the piracy will continue. Men will die. How sad.

  4. Why do I get the feeling that it's not just those who may dissagree with juggernaut that are the trolls....


    I'm no Obamaton... but I sure have been jumped on as if I were. There is a lot of hate and extremism brewing within the members of this forum. Totally closed-minded and unwilling to hold reasonable discussions. If you disagree with them you are mobbed, even though we are all here for basically the same purpose.


    Those trolls are no better than the other trolls that attempt reasonable debate on topics from which threads have been based.



    Now.. where'd I leave that thread with the bold mods hmmmmmmm where'd I leave that new set of files I just bought?

  5. I'm betting any AK pistol grip will work. I bought the one with all the different grip and backstrap options, made in Israel. It wasn't a drop-in, but considering I had my Dremel and other various tools on the workbench (read: garage floor) for the conversion, I made it work with minimal effort. little trim here and there, no problem.

  6. lol np Cobra. I didn't even want to bother you anyway, with all you got going on. Oh well! :D I did think about modding the BHO, and I would have eventually figured out to grind the safety, but I didn't remember ever seeing anyone mention that so I thought I was doing something wrong! lol!

  7. This post should be a sticky, so everyone doing an S12 conversion will know before-hand that this will be an issue. None of the videos or instructions I've seen mentioned this, and though I was diligent in my research prep, this cost me a day of frustration for what should be a 1-2 hour job total. Argh!! lol.

  8. just fyi, I converted my S12 today using the Tapco folding AK stock. Not the one you have, but the one that works with a normal AK.


    It broke within 5 minutes. This is not stuff you'd want on a real weapon indended to remain durable when the SHTF. I'm pissed I wasted $50 on it. I was tryin to save money on the conversion.


    Now I gotta buy the right stuff anyway, and I'm down $50. I hate when that happens. I should have known better, but didn't think the Crapco was THAT bad....until it broke.

  9. The problem is with using the retainer plate. You can't install the retainer plate while the safety is already in the gun. But then, you can't install the safety after teh BHO is in the gun. Apparently, you can't install the safety after the trigger is installed unless you grind a portion of it off. After closer inspection I can see that the safety contacts the disconnector on one side, and the trigger on the other. Taking the side of the safety that contacts the disconnector down a few mm, and modding the BHO would certainly make it work. I'm done for now, totally annoyed that my Crapco is such a POS. When I get around to ordering a real stock and mechanism, I'll fix it up.

  10. I like the BHO. I can't lock in a drum or mag with the bolt shut for the life of me...


    Anyway, I was able to put everything together by sticking the safety in first, then hooking the spring over the BHO last... Sure, it worked, but the shepard's crook doesn't engage the hammer pin. I can push it out with a punch with only moderate hand pressure.


    I'm taking a break because I've been at this all day, for what should have taken no more than 2 hours. I'm dissapointed that I didn't find this stuff before :(


    Also, I used a Crapco folding stock because I was running low on funds. What a POS. It broke already, so now it locks open but it won't lock when it's folded... it's.... floppy. lol.


    Oh well, I am still happy. Next in line is something to filly the holes, and some good quality flat black.

  11. I see. What he did was grind off a bit of the safety, down at the bottom where it engages the back of the trigger. If I installed the safety lever first, it wouldn't rotate up and out of the way because it was contacting the disconnector. I couldn't put it in after the trigger assembly either because of the same reason. I'm a bit hesitant to gring off part of the safety mechanism... I think i'll just use the shepards crook...


    Oh, just an FYI:


    The trigger assembly is a Texas Trigger worked over by Cobra. I got my retaining plate from Cobra as well, it is modified as mentioned and pictured above, but I can see that in order for it to work I would have to first grind down the safety, which I do not want to do.

  12. Okay so I get everything in there, the BHO is in, the pins are in, and I go to install the safety lever. Well, the safety lever won't freaken go back in because the BHO is in the way!! I try and try but can't get it done. So I decide I'll take it all apart and try it with the safety in FIRST.


    Well, that isn't so bad, I get it all together but then I'm unable to loosen the safety so I can install the retainer plate.


    On the S12 is using a retainer plate impossible? or do you have to modify the BHO with a dremel? I'm very irritated.


    I started the conversion at 9:00 am, and was pretty much finished by 10:00 if not for this problem. Now it's 12:30 and I'm totally stuck.


    What do I do?

  13. Over the past several months I've seen some great how-to videos posted. I can't find them now. Why aren't they stickied somewhere?


    anyway, I now have all the parts, and the next few days to accomplish the conversion. I'd like to watch a good video again to remember how to do it... got a link anyone?
