  1. I have a dph plug in it right now, ran 100 rounds though it today and I could get it out, the knurling on the dph is almost 3 times as high as the I'm guessing lynx plug.  It's the pin not straight in the gas block that hangs it up. During my full teardown today I also noticed my gas block is off of a different gun. Evey other part is stamped 935 then the gas block is stamped 944

  2. It looks like it is at an angle. Kind of a redneck test but putting in the plug a couple a couple times when clean it looks like the lead thread on the gas plug gets folded over a tiny bit so I'm guessing its hitting the pin as it goes all the way in. New gas plug and a bit of thread chasing should fix it.   

       After 300 slugs on position 1 (150 each range visit) gun is running ok but won't feed more then 5 rounds out of a magazine and dosent like the drums at all. Position 2 felt over gassed with same slugs. Guessing to much drag with mag tension. Dont want to smooth anything out till I figure out the muzzle threads since AWS is very clear that warranty is void if you do just about anything to it. 

  3. Anyone else with a spets having problems with screwing a muzzle device on? Ordered a 10 slot choke adaptor and jam nut and neither go on more then a thread.   The gas adjustor it came with has no spot for a tool and the knurling is garbage 

  4. We had thought about that but epa regs and insurance skyrockets. There is a possibility that in the future if we do well then we could add a firing range. One of his companies owns most of the property around it and is thinking of buying more so even a full range could happen. We figure we are already going just a lil big and dont want to go to far. I wanted to start out a lil simpler but its hard to tell someone no when they are footing the bill.

  5. Im not going to be really stocking my elephant guns. I have a strong suspicion that the 6 or so I build a year will end up coming home with me its just the fact that I will have access to all the equipment and parts. So far we will have ar's, ak's, glocks, rugers, kimbers and such. Where I am you cannot hunt with any semiautomatic rifles so we will have to have a good selection of bolt actions and single shots. Im thinking howa and cz with some rugers and rem thrown in. Im going to put my mrad in a display case cause it wasn't near a cool as I thought it would be. Lots of ammo from cheap to niche and since im a avid reloader a nice reloading section. Sounds like a lot and it is but are building is over double the sq ft of the largest gun store within a 4 hour radius. Training of employees will be the biggest challenge. I was thinking at first to have them go through some classes in each category to help but knowledgeable employees in this area will be rough.

  6. He kicked in a lot of capital. He will be footing the bill for everything out of pocket including the ridiculous inventory he has planned. As he put it "its cheaper then some of the cars I have". He normally loses more then this on dumb cars and watches in a year then so hes just looking at it as something to say he owns. That dosent mean it will flop from lack of effort, he has 5 companies he has started from scratch that are now multinational. He even started a successful one in china and thats a feat considering he dosent speak the language. Im in it because I know far more then he does about guns and even went through a hands on gunsmithiing school but to tell you the truth I just want to screw with guns all day. He will make it successful like he always does and I will get to make the guns I want. He will run day to day and I will be free to make custom guns as I feel like to my own taste. Now the next question who are the wholesalers of vepers and saigas now? Edit to add: I will not be doing the whole rednecked saiga thing my passion lies in elephant cartridges like 416 rigby 458 lott and the wetherbys in compact lightweight guns for groundhog exploding or any other thing you decide to decimate. I have a 416 rigby down to 6 pounds and use it for everything from squirrels to bear. I just tune the ammo for it. Kicks like crazy but braked and mercuric recoil reducer tamed her down and makes me grin everytime I use it. Its a bigger hit at the range then anything else.

  7. Well ladies and gentlemen I am starting a gunstore apparently. No im not advertising here or anything atm I wont even give the name out yet. This all came about with a off hand remark at a family gathering that owning a gun store seems fun and my uncle overhead and offered me a building and Capitol to start it for 50% of the company. He owns a multinational company and always thought about owning on so off we go. He will hire management and staff all I have to do is pick what I want in it and show up. So on to the questions. Do you guys think 600 guns is enough inventory? Should we do gun shows within our state? We hadn't planned on selling anything but guns and ammo do u guys think we should carry the other crap most lil gunstores carry (ie shirts hats jackets and such)?
