    I wish it all worked like that. Until I get caught up, it is make contact, get in line, wait, send the weapon in, wait, and finally enjoy it. After existing contracts are finished, my partner and I have decided to let the pool company hibernate until the market settles down. It has been a real thrown in the side for both of us. There is money there, but we're both over it. We may really love the break and close the company down altogether. We both have better things to do than build pools. Builds will move in and out much faster. I am not fond of working on things after others, especially when they chop it, it doesn't run, and they have tried 'everything' (every bad idea, lol) and it still doesn't run. I've seen some really bad ideas implemented, even from other shops. It costs more that way. An un molested gun is the best starting point and will yield the best results. Chop and fire strong loads while you wait for intake is about the next best thing.
  2. A portion of Obama's 2013 State of the Union Address, copied and pasted from the NY Times... "Real reform means strong border security, and we can build on the progress my Administration has already made – putting more boots on the southern border than at any time in our history, and reducing illegal crossings to their lowest levels in 40 years.Real reform means establishing a responsible pathway to earned citizenship – a path that includes passing a background check, paying taxes and a meaningful penalty, learning English, and going to the back of the line behind the folks trying to come here legally." Meanwhile, President Donald Trump is hated and demonized for actually making it happen.
  3. Just saw this on another forum. Atlantic Firearms has a few of the Kalashnikov USA Saiga-12 copies and will start testing soon. I just realized that Atlantic is no longer a vendor here (appears that way, at least) and if there is an issue with me posting this info, please simply delete it. I thought it was good news for the community. If they are around $900 or less and decent, it should be a great deal for a Saiga 12 that doesn't need to be unsporterized. Let's hope...
  4. They are there, just wearing that Harry Potter cloak... @ 1:35 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rqi3jpBSyCc
  5. The left will find a way to blame whatever happens on Trump. I have been talking with some democrats and it has become clear to me that they are not interested in truth. Emotional issues mean more to them than their freedom and finances. I will never understand. They will take whatever the media lays out... hook, line, and sinker.
  6. I suppose I'm going to find out soon if things settle down in the next few weeks. I'll get some pics if I am successful.
  7. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fs-q6eO3FKI Looks like it will take a decent sized hog well outside of the range I would be hunting at.
  8. Congrats! Future shooter there. I am sure you will raise him with the right ideas.

    Kalashnikov USA finally shipping Saiga 12

    If the rest of them are like the one I have here, they run great right out of the box. 2-3/4 dram loads in stick mags.
  10. I am not generally a Ruger fan, but I was impressed when I worked on the first American rifle. The pillar system is well thought out and simple. It came in for a trigger job. The early triggers were horrendous and were not meant to be taken apart (rivets), but I figured out a way to do a trigger job without disassembling it.
  11. I just ordered some of the Hornady 190 gr subs. I hope to take them for a test drive on some hog flesh soon I never thought I'd be hunting hogs with an AR pistol, but here I am, lol.
  12. I've been eyeballing the 300 Blk AR mag version of this, but I just can't justify it since I already have a 300 Blk AR pistol that will do what I would need to do, kill hogs inside of 100 yards.
  13. Ruger has really been stepping up their game lately. I'm glad to see it. They have some nice bolt guns straight out of the box.
  14. If they call BS they can go read it for themselves straight from the liberal rag site... assuming they can read and are actually interested in truth, which is not likely. They like to keep their heads buried in the sand and ignore logic and fact with all of their might. https://www.nytimes.com/2013/02/13/us/politics/obamas-2013-state-of-the-union-address.html
  15. Local stations might report on it by the time it is a full blown crisis with raping and pillaging. I am looking forward to a resurgence of journalism...
  16. One of my customers is very connected in regards to the defense of this nation and the intel surrounding that. He stated once that he always thought that any significant threat would come from outside of the US, but that thought had evolved to the threat being from the left. It is quite ironic that it looks like it may be a combination of the two. I feel for anyone that is in the potential path of this. I wouldn't run from it unless I was very low on preparations or was going to be the lone able-bodied defender. I wouldn't want to have to kill to protect myself and family, but certainly would to preserve our lives. I hope the nastiness of this doesn't reach its full potential. On a lighter note, I can't help but wonder if there has been a significant rise in gun and ammo sales along the border.

    No recoil buffers.

    Price Check?

    +1 probably spot on with actual selling prices. I see them listed (key word) now and then in safe queen condition for $2300'ish. Listed price means little. I see Vepr-12s with a bunch of bolt-on parts installed listed for $3k+ . Actual sold price is sometimes drastically different.
  19. They need to be stopped, period. Whatever it takes to secure the border and protect the citizenry. What country could you an I make it into alive with thousands of others while waving a US flag? Not many.
  20. I agree with the jail recommendation, but the delusions, detachment from reality, lack of character, lying even when cold busted, sudden outbursts, and general mental illness needs addressing too. Those people are all-around nutbags.

    Lynx shotgun/Kushnapup compatibility

    Expect to do some fitting. If you weld, the trigger position won't be a huge deal. The Norinco Hunter had a trigger in the regular AK position, but it was extended rearward to be in almost the same position as a Saiga sporter trigger. It can be done, but only you know your level of mechanical inclination, creativity, and patience. Norinco Hunter pics As far as potentially asking the same question that has already been asked, don't worry about it. This is a discussion forum. Welcome aboard.

    So I un-TROMIXED my Tromix S-17.

    You aren't crazy. I never cared for the look of those builds either and would have done something else with it too. However, I do understand why he designed them that way. Aside from creating a unique look at the time (before everyone started trying to copy him, lol) it kept things simple, eliminated the excessive comms that custom builds require, and he could build them very quickly. It was extremely wise in regards to making a good profit for the time invested and getting work out of the door. Looks better. I never understood the desire to always run a muzzle device on a SBS. I like the barrel nut or a Salvo 12, that's it.
  23. $1100 tops, yes, even with the mags and case. Now that the KS-12 and the Lynx are available the Saiga-12 and Vepr-12 prices have softened considerably and S12s are seen for as low as $600-700 with nothing stupid done to them. Had you listed right after the bad news for the Vepr-12 (Molot being legally absorbed by Concern) and before the KS-12 and Lynx releases you would have gotten $1500 for that. Your timing just isn't good. Sell it for less or withdraw it and wait for some bad news to happen and relist.

    Saiga 12 questions

    It seems like they used to have a bigger nipple on them. I used them a while back to see how close a gun was to running. If it ran with that puck, I knew it was close to running with the standard puck. https://www.carolinashooterssupply.com/Saiga_12_gas_piston_puc_puck_CSS_p/css-s12puc.htm
