    Need Side Rail for Tromix S17 to Mount RDS

    I used to like the TRS-25 before I discovered PA. They cost a little more, but they are worth it.
  2. If his own wife can't trust him, why should we? That's my stripped down view of it.
  3. I never went to school for gunsmithing. I think some people just don't need it and, on the other hand, I have known people who went to gunsmithing school and still didn't have enough natural mechanical ability to get by as a semi-decent gunsmith. One even went to Colorado School of Trades, IIRC. There is something that can't be measured or taught that is required to be more than one dimensional when it comes to this stuff. I studied machining 20+ years ago and just completed CNC programming and fabrication school. I get by with that, research when I don't already know something, ignoring what most others do (my greatest asset, lol), and some natural ability. A solid machining program at a community college would likely get you where you want to go if you have an above average understanding of firearm function and are a good researcher. If you already have machining experience and have a good understanding of that, start researching bolt rifle building and tool up. Searching 'Build your own bolt action rifle' yields some good hits. You never know, you might unearth something noteworthy that others would pay you for. Post pics
  4. Gohmert and Gowdy were eviscerating him. I did enjoy it.
  5. He looked like a spoiled child to me. In many ways, he still is. For all we know there could be a very intricate and well crafted plan in place. If you take a step back, ignore the failures of justice from '08-'16 and look at the bigger picture, you can see the potential there. They have sewn a treasure trove of evil seeds to be reaped. Vengeance belongs to God, but that doesn't mean we can't appreciate His efforts when it happens Higher ways...

    8.75" would be nice
  7. It would very likely be more cost effecting to get something that is closer to what you want right out of the box and minimize the additional work. If you are not concerned with the cost, it would be cool to turn what you already have into something special. You would think I would be all about maximum work, but I only like work when there is nothing readily available that will compare or suffice. For example, a radically short mag fed SBS just has to be built since it cannot be bought.
  8. Florida gun shows suck. They used to be ok. I no longer bother. It seems to be a collection of greasy sleezebag dealers who think no one on the other side of the table knows anything, spreading their misinformations, of course.
  9. I get about 15 mpg in my '01 5.3l, even at 300k miles.
  10. I hope it passes. Anything has to be better than the entire citizenry of the state being subject to all of that nonsense.

    Lynx?

    No clue, but I highly doubt the metallurgy is just as good. Some of the deviations from the design are better on the Chinese clones, however, but that isn't worth much.

    I'd just find a spare dust cover. The cost would probably be worth the time saved by not having to take all of that apart to service things and not having to risk losing zero.
  13. Sounds like that cylinder deactivation stuff, the $10k. I think that was '07-'11. The Denali and Escalades scare me. Lots of tech there to break/fail. I'd stick to the more basic stuff. If you are looking at a specific vehicle (say 2004 Suburban), have a look around at replacement parts, low mileage engines, etc. It may be a great idea to get a subscription to consumerreports.com and have a look at reliability ratings for each vehicle you are interested in and what are the best performers in the segment. That's what I did. About $35 for a whole year and totally worth it. I think you can even go $9.95 for one month.
  14. I would not get near an older V8 F150 with over 150k miles on it unless it was well maintained and supported with records. They don't seem to handle abuse and neglect like a GM LSX engine will. It took my pool company partner 3 engines to get to almost 200k in his 2005 F150 before he sold it. What does he do? … buys another Ford I bought a 2001 Chevy Suburban with 204k on it in late 2012. The original engine and transmission are still running fine at over 300k now. A very good friend of mine who maintained Jacksonville city vehicles took a good look at it recently and said it easily has another 50k in it if I continue driving and maintaining as I currently do. I would drive it on another trip to Michigan with an oil change, check of other fluids, a new serpentine belt, top off air in the tires, and check the spare. Knowing what I know now about the reliability of the iron block GM LSX engines, I'd stick to any 2000 to 2003 Chevy with a 5.3l engine that had been reasonably well maintained. As far as I know, those were the most trouble free years for engine and tranny. The truck runs so good, does what it needs to, and parts are cheap and easy to find. There is nothing else that will do all of the things it will do at the current market price of 3.5-6k for a 4x4 Suburban that has been treated ok.

    I have never been a fan of putting optics on AKs, but I'd run that. Good on them for developing it.
