  1. Hi guys, As some of you may know I have a 5.45 Saiga that I converted and put Bulgy plum furniture on. I put the Mojo MicroClick aperture sight on it about 2 years ago and really like it, and had a cheapo Tasco 39x40 scope on it that I used to shoot out to 500 yards. Well, that thing just didn't have enough clicky adjustment to get me any more elevation, so I asked my buddies what they recommended for shooting 800+ yards with something like a 5.45/.223. One of them told me he had this scope that I could take off his hands. He said he'd give me a good deal since it was all painted up and the paint was not in good condition. All he said it was BIG and camo, so I said I would try it out. What's the worst that could happen? ..... He was right - It's REALLY BIG! And quite heavy I might add. The zoom lever goes from 5.5 to 22. It zooms in a LOT more than my tasco and this one has more than one crosshair. Lots of tick marks! Think that will be enough to compensate for bullet drop well past 1000 yards. The mount that came with it looks beefy and says LARUE LT104 on the bottom. I guess that's a strong enough mount to hold this big boy on my rifle. Anyhow, I was wondering what color I should paint it, since the camo doesn't really go with my bulgy plum scheme. The scope is black underneath the paint. I can see it where it's scratched off, but I don't want to mess around with stripping it off. I was thinking of either painting it kind of deep purple/plum like most of the furniture, or the burnt orange/salmon color to match the pistol grip. Suggestions welcome.
  2. Awesome. It looks like it doesn't to a complete revolution. It appears that when it is sideways right before it exits the gelatin, it reverses the rotation and exits with the nose of the bullet out front.
  3. Dunk the muzzle in a bucket of water to clean for corrosive.

    Tapco G2 Trigger is adjustable

    I adjusted my single hook G2 by welding on overtravel and pretravel tabs and then filing them down to make sure the FCG is still safe and that the safety still 'works*' *works = hammer does not fall when I pull the trigger, only done while aimed downrage. I do not consider a 'safetey' anthing more than a false sense of security that will inevitably fail.

    Why is modification for AK-47 Magazines needed?

    I just don't use a bullet guide.

    AAC Blackout Flashhider

    Yes. 5.56 is .224" diameter and 5.45 is .220" diameter.

    yet another rust question (YARQ)

    luhl. I've been cleaning the piston with a wire brush until all the black is gone. I guess I'll stop.

    Trigger Question

    Barrack Hussein Obama! lol......Bolt Hold Open.
  13. Where are you going with this build? What's it for? The paper doesn't matter how fast the bullet is going, and higher velocity doesn't mean higher accuracy as many people incorrectly presume.

    The 5.45x39 picture thread

    Different angle & brown circle 10.
  15. Get your old barrel back in there and have him permanently put a long brake on it. A tantal brake would be le schweet on a 13". Put the krink gas block on too.
