  1. Howdy there everybody! Working on putting together some 74 builds and I have everything except the barrels. Need 4 but if you only have 1 I'll buy it. US made or Bulgarian, virgin or ancient, fresh chromed or pitted.... whatever. Price negotiations based on condition, I'm a fair businessman. Wide variety of payment methods. PM or reply in this thread and I'll get right back to you.
  2. Thanks for all the suggestions from everybody... probably just will get another SR9C but still thinking. To answer Cali Armz... I have a fair bit of experience shooting Glocks and think they are fine weapons. Accurate and reliable. Yes, I'd say that Ruger almost completely ripped off the Glock trigger safety. Nothing wrong with that, it's a great design. I think the SR9C has some distinct advantages especially as a carry pistol. The different sized magazines are very nice, 10 rounder for concealed carry and the 17 rounder with a grip extension for range/spare mag. Indeed the compact Glocks can take the full sized mags but it sticks out and is awkward and ugly...not to mention I think the whole pistol is ugly. It seems like the SR9C is designed ground up as a CCW whereas the G26 seems more like a scaled down G19/G17. Other features I like about the Ruger is the adjustable rear sight and ambi thumb safety. The 3.5 inch barrel is just about perfect sized too. Add in flawless function and solid accuracy for its size and I really love that gun. Now we could have a 10 page thread debating the virtues of manual safeties, I'm sure there's one on this forum if you dig for a bit. In my day to day life stateside, I don't foresee a situation where it will take me longer to flick off a safety than it will take me to decide it's time to shoot. I usually carry in my belt without a holster and would be very uncomfortable carrying something like a Glock or Sig condition 1, enough so that I'd probably leave it in 3. To rack the slide before firing would completely defeat the point of eliminating the safety to begin with. I have had years of professional firearms operation and training, never had an ND but I know I'm not perfect and may slip up some day. I just don't want that day to cost me my dick. Now a full sized Glock in a holster for a duty weapon? Tough to beat. But for day to day carry stateside I'll take the Ruger. Still thinking about that Stoeger or PX4. That FNX is sexy too. Dammit it's a tough call.
  3. Wow, I'd never even heard of that, it's like a tiny cheap M9. Pretty cool, thanks. Oh, I've got some plans that I probably shouldn't discuss publicly....
  4. Eh sorry, not a Glock fan at all. This dude is about as trusted as they come in my book, we've been through a lot of shit together. If my buddy had any interest in robbing me, I've got some guns that are a lot nicer than that Ruger. This is deployment no. 4 for me, you just gotta accept that stuff like this happens sometimes and it's out of your control. I'm considering maybe a S&W MP9C. The Beretta Px4 subcompact looks interesting also. Anybody have any feedback on these weapons?
  5. Well the title sums it up, but here's the background story: I'm deployed in the middle east at the moment and my buddy is hanging on to all my stuff including my guns back in the states. I was talking to him a bit ago and he told me that my Ruger SR9C was stolen. He knows who did it but the guy skipped town, got my boy's PS3 too. Apparently he lost his job, couldn't feed his daughter, and needed money but I still want to hit him with a crowbar. Sucks, I really loved that pistol. Get to the point, I'll obviously need to buy a new compact carry/ tactical/ highway speed limit sign plinking/ self defense (all purpose) pistol when I get back. I don't get back home until February but alas I've come here soliciting advice. I'm thinking about just buying another Ruger, but maybe this is fate telling me to switch it up. Here's my preferences: manual safety a must, 9mm, 3.5-4 inch barrel, mag cap anywhere from 10-18. Trying hard to think what is out there like that, maybe the FN-P? Any suggestions welcome, thanks in advance.
  6. Hmm, that's what I suspected, thanks. I have no access to a lathe, does anybody think it would work to take material off the inside of the smaller Romy parts?
  7. Hi everybody. I just got a great deal on some Yugoslavian M70 barrels, after planning to build on a Romanian kit. I believe the Yugo barrels are a bit thicker than others, and I would deduce from this that there may be fitting issues with the gas block, fsb, trunnion. Just wondering if anybody has ever tried this, or knows if/how it could work. Thanks in advance.
  8. Looks pretty good to me. Any chance we can get a pic with AR BUIS in place of the optic?
  9. I've had my Gunfixer plug for about 1 1/2 years now, I think it is a vast improvement over the OEM Russian plug. As has already been said, the ability to change gas settings without having to use a knife or key or something is nice. It is also much easier to remove to clean the puck, just unscrew it. When I bought my S12 it was a 2 hole vodka special that wouldn't cycle a damn thing. My solution: I got the Gunfixer plug and drilled oversized gas ports and I now (generally) shoot slugs on -1, buck on -1 or +1, and cheap stuff on +1 or 2. I turn it on 3 whenever I hip fire to achieve good reliability. Another distinct advantage to an adjustable gas system which I learned while a M240G gunner is that during sustained firing when the action starts getting gummed up, increasing the gas is a quick fix. Haven't had to, but I could do the same on my Saiga 12. This is obviously more of a SHTF concern than for recreational shooting. (Just clean it.)
  10. Not gonna lie, that's the best Saiga 12 I've seen in a while. Lone Star Arms is right down the street from me, it's really tempting.
  11. That would probably be the best way to do it. It could be box like and flat perpendicular to the weapon. The feed pawls could be run if an extension to the bottom of the bolt protruded through the bottom of the receiver or magwell. For a setup like that you would definitely have to crank up the gas system to 11.

  13. RPK's are magazine fed just like an AK or Saiga. The belt fed PK machine gun was designed by Kalashnikov but is a medium machinegun and a very different weapon from the AK. I imagine it would be nearly impossible to adapt a Saiga 12 to function akin to a PK or be run belt fed. Attaching a feed cover and feed tray would be required, not sure how. The bolt and trigger system would have to use an open bolt setup also, this would be very difficult. I think it would be much easier to mess with a PK receiver and possibly use a modified S12 bolt and barrel. I could see some ejection issues with that though.
