  1. It's only in that one area though. With cosmoline, don't they usually cover the entire firearm (or at least the metal parts) with it? I'm going to pour some boiling water on it or put some hot steam to it to see if it runs off.
  2. Naval gel. Is that the stuff made by Loctite? Can I use CLP instead of Hoppe's #9?
  3. So,I picked up a Vepr a couple weeks ago. Just recently had a chance to fiddle with it. Took it apart to do a basic clean and lube and noticed a muddy reddish substance which looks like rust (but hopefully not) on the front trunnion at about the 8 to 11 o'clock position. It looks like it's just on the surface, but it still doesn't sit well with me. I read on another forum that it can be caused from a liquid they use during manufacturing when mating the parts in that area and that it may not necessarily be rust. I don't know if I buy that, but I'm no expert. The thing is, it's in a hard to reach area. I tried to get a small piece of sand paper in there to sand it off, but I couldn't manage to reach it. I also sprayed some WD-40 in there. If it is indeed rust, what's the best course of action to take? Thanks in advance.
  4. Will factory Vepr 7.62x39 5 and 10 round mags fit and work properly in a Saiga 7.62X39 rifle?
  5. I just saw on the news that Cruz might reinstate his campaign.WHAT?! The plot thickens! I don't see it making any difference one way or the other,but......
  6. The last sentence sort of reminds me of the "End of Empires" theory, that most great empires in history don't last more than about 250 years. Greek Empire (231) Roman Empire (207) Ottoman Empire (250), etc.The U.S. is at about,what 240? Interesting stuff. http://thesovereigninvestor.com/us-economy/americas-decadence-signals-end-empire/
  7. I jest. Seriously though, the only alternative is Hitlery, which would essentially be another Obama term. Come on man! Did you see how she looked that WV coal miner square in the eyes and bald faced LIED to him? I don't see how she sleeps at night.
  8. Pull your head out of your rump,vote for Trump!
  9. Nice man! I bet the 5.45 recoil in that big ole' heavy Vepr is like shooting a pellet gun, huh?
  10. How is the recoil with +p and +p+ ammo? I considered a G26 or G19, but wasn't sure if I wanted another polymer frame striker fired pistol. I went with a CZ 75 PCR and like it quite a bit.
  11. Wow,really?! What was wrong with the barrel? (just curious) I've never owned a Sig,but I did consider getting one.(P229)
  12. You say your Sig was not cutting it. How so? What model?
  13. I ordered a Wolff EP spring. I read on another forum that it also helps reduce muzzle rise. If that's the case, I imagine it could possibly even help improve accuracy,guess I'll see.
  14. ...and mine. Haha,he's got a Churchill tat on his right bicep.
  15. Are there any benefits besides keeping the bolt carrier from contacting the rear trunnion too violently? Wouldn't an extra power spring also cause the carrier to contact the FRONT trunnion more violently on return to battery?
  16. I've thought about getting one.What are the pros and cons? I already have a recoil buffer installed if that makes any difference.
  17. I didn't think 7.62x39 had any drop at 200. I thought it was around 250 that it started. I knew at 300 and beyond it drops like a turd in a well.
  18. The steel used in today's Chinese made firearms is junk, too soft. It's not the same quality as back in the day on the old Polytech AKs, for example.
