  1. Doing it yourself is the quickest turn around for sure especially now. Until something changes in the political atmosphere as a rule I'd assume all bets are off, all "options" are on the table, and you should not expect to have any gun-relate product or service readily available to you. This is the fight we're currently in though there's definitely much more to come. Can you say "tip of the iceberg"? Civil War II (or would it be WWIII?) seems less and less unlikely every day. You could do the job in about an hour if you got everything on hand and have some decent skills and finesse. Then agai

  3. I paid $500 plus shipping ~ 3 years ago for a factory S308.
  4. I live in Denver right now, have family in Castle Rock and Palmer Lake. Guns: S308, Glock 23, and Sig 522. I grew up in Douglas County and still consider it my backyard...Rampart Range will always be my sanctuary. I ride my WR450 and KLR650 up there 3 season a year. To shoot in the summer, spring, and fall, I take HWY 85 to HWY 67, then take Rampart Range Road south 25 miles to FR-325. There's a big open area with a large open (unofficial) parking lot just north of the intersection with 325A. Here's the general location: http://goo.gl/maps/pg2Ky Note that it's illegal to shoot within the Do
  5. Hey, some tacticool mall ninja is going to buy that and feel great about it...and the shop is going to feel even better. If you've seen any pawn shop show on TV, this shouldn't surprise you. If they didn't think they were going to sell it, they wouldn't price it like that...and they know their clientele. That being said I'd be willing to be we're not seeing everything...maybe the scope really is a couple grand? Maybe the rifle was completely rebuilt? Match grade barrel? When you're rich, the price doesn't matter as much.
  6. So what about a metal mag makes it more reliable in function beyond that it's more durable? Just because a mag is made out of metal doesn't necessarily mean it's going to function well. I'm not saying metal mags aren't reliable or durable, CSSPEC's mag have gotten great reviews so I'm sure they're both. I was speaking in general...nothing about a mag being metal makes it more reliable in function (like feeding rounds reliably), it's just more reliable in the sense that it is durable and will function reliably by not being broken so easily. If a metal mag doesn't function well to begin with
  7. First, you're right, I'm sorry, a Saiga 308 is an MBR, not an assault rifle...oh wait, that doesn't matter, because it's not a machine-gun! Which has been my point: unless you're treating your Saiga like a SAW, a drum mag is not going to be most people's choice for a number of valid reasons. Second, you're right about all the mag drop stuff but I'm not a trained soldier so I can imagine I'd drop a mag in a real-life firefight regardless of what kind of mag. And I still think there's a legitimate reason to drop mags if that one second could save your life. And if you don't have the muscle m
  8. I guarantee two of my 24 round ProMags (which actually fit 28 rounds) are gonna weigh a lot less than any .308 drum mag and take up less space. Even three full mags might be lighter or close in weight to one full drum. So someone who drops a magazine in the heat of a firefight is an idiot? I'd rather drop my magazine than get shot if that's what it came to and I think most would agree. Dropping magazines isn't something anyone wants to do, but it happens in fast-paced tactical situations and I don't think anyone would think twice about it if they're getting shot at. Yeah, obviously if
  9. On a range I can see why some might like one...but with the price of ammo and regular magazines these days, I think there's very little justification beyond fun. When I see professionals and soldiers using them and explaining why, I'd be convinced that they're practical. But until that happens, they're just the heaviest, most cumbersome, least reliable and durable (most complicated), least economical, and least practical magazine option out there...at least for me and in my opinion. What would you do in a shootout with a drum after emptying/shooting its rounds? Drop it on the ground (I don't
  10. If I was short on magazines I'd just stock up on whatever I could get my hands on at this point...just sayin'. The drum mag seems to have no purpose (for .308 anyways) other than for fun.
  11. I heard on another forum that this was an intended design feature to render brass non-reloadable (in a military situation, they didn't want to give supplies to the enemy)...even though, as stated here, most shells can be reloaded.
  12. I believe most re-use their pins if they can get them out without major destruction and don't need to correct a canted FSB. If necessary, new pins are as easy as buying the right size drill bit, cutting it, then grinding down the two pieces to the length of the original pins. Your FSB may be pinned on in a canted position. To fix this, many redrill/machine the pin holes a hair wider and are sure to be as a straight as possible in preparation for new slightly larger pins. If you're moving your FSB back for threading, you definitely will end up drilling/machine at least one entirely new
  13. If you drop a Cummins in it, yes.
  14. You said "no", and then basically repeated what I said in my quote about how an inward hit on the button could lose zero because it would allow the rail to move...!? No. As I said, the takedown button cams the rail down against the top of the receiver tightly. Once it's in place, the spring isn't what's holding it anymore, and it takes some effort to push the button in and release the rail. If the button does somehow get pushed in inadvertently, cycle the carrier back hard a couple of times to re-set it. It won't lose zero because it returns to zero.
