  1. Congrats to her on her success! And, does her fame and celebrity cause you to assume the role of Mr. Mom? Still the resident fish catcher and dinner cook, I'm sure. Miss your pictures, Chile.

    What is your favorite Saiga 12 build ever?

    I have one of those. Thank you again.

    Radically short Vepr 12 SBS

    Evl, why you're letting a troll bother you I can't figure out. That's outta character for you.

    draco ak pistol legal NY?

    Especially in NY.
  5. Re-falling in love with my lever action .30-30, I'm lusting for a mare's leg for the first time in my life.

      I got a Rossi mares leg in .357/.38 Special.. Love it!

  6. Well, I paid $499 for mine without all the extra mags. That was about 10 years ago. Not sure I'd pay much more than that now. You may be better off selling the mags separate, and trying to recoup what you paid for the gun alone. I'm sure there are some here that may bite with the right bait. Good luck.
  7. Make it a good one, and thanks for your work here.
  8. I retired in April, mostly due to a major medical problem that won't go away without major surgery. I have not missed any part of that place. I'll be glad when the deductions have stabilized out of my pension, but we expected some income turbulence. We've spent more time in the camper this summer than we have at home. A test of sorts for future full-time travel. We're home now, for the winter most likely. Hopefully we can tie up some loose ends that will make next summer even better. Enjoy your retirement!

    S 12 ready conditions

    Must be the plastic on Bianchi shells is sturdier than most. I've had the same five #4 Buck rounds in the factory mag, inserted in the gun for about two years and they'll still chamber without fail. I think I'll pick up some more of those. 😉Oh, one in the chamber with the safety on, like most of my guns. The deadliest gun is an empty one.
  10. I love living where I can pick off tree rats all year long. You'd think they'd learn that they can't out run a S-12.

      You'd love it more with a suppressed shotgun. I'm pretty sure the squirrels are smaller here and it would offer a greater challenge as well. So when are you moving to NE FL? We almost have seasons here and snow removal is done at absolutely no charge to the homeowner ;) 


      ETA: more coffee

      Not sure that's where we'll end up. We have some family obligations now, but when the elders pass, we're hitting the road without plans. :)

      If Florida goes to crap I think I'm moving the shop to Montana. We hope to go check it out next year and hit Yellowstone. If that sucker is going to blow I figure we may as well be right in the epicenter, lol.

  11. Necrotic, sure. I didn't mind reading it though.
  12. I'm here, but not as ancient as some.
  13. It doesn't show on the bottom of posts.

    Saiga 12 Bolt Head Damage

    Ever seen the video of the tank running over the AK and the gun still works? This thread brings that into my mind. Maybe if you try that it'll straighten out the receiver and the gun will run right. Of course I jest.

    A new addition to the family

    It'll be interesting to see a before and after picture when you get it back. I'm not a KelTek fan. Owning a Sub2000 assured me of that, but I will say their CS is thorough, albeit slow.

    Saiga 12 Bolt Head Damage

    What'r the chatter marks in the chamber, directly under the inserted words? Looks like a tool got away from the operator. Also, it looks like a burr directly next to the second R in "BURR".
  17. I really wish I had the ambition to carve the rifle I built this past winter like this.

    Tac-47 Auto Plug: Cleaning frequency?

    Agreed, no need of taking apart every time, or often, for that matter.
  19. Agreed, The average shooter will likely never shoot a bolt gun to the point of erosion. I shoot quite a bit. I'd shoot a lot more if ammo was cheaper or if I was ambitious enough to reload more than I do. I think I've shot my 30/06 about 121 times, because I've counted empty boxes and killed an 8 point whitetail buck with it. I now have enough brass to clean and reload, but I still have a few boxes of factory ammo to shoot before I actually put the shoulder time in to work up a handload. Oh, the barrel is whatever came on it from the factory. That is the one thing I haven't worked on the gun, except for cleaning between every shot for the first 10 shots during break-in.
