  1. A cheek rest! Great. Hadn't thought of that. Thanks.
  2. Cool. Thanks. I presumed that's the primary purpose of the thing, people adjusting, length of pull and all that. But I guess I'm wondering about the other extreme--stock adjusted tight. Is it possible to shoot with the stock at this position without recoil breaking your nose? I see a lot of folks with 7.62x39 and AR-15's who talk about shooting fast, butt of the stock pressed against their clavicle or chest, but I doubt very much if there are too many folks out there who can do it with a .308. I sure as hell can't. So, bottom line, wondering if I were to shoot from that position on a rest,
  3. I have a Tapco 6, four-position adjustable stock; not the best on the market, I know, but fine for me. Normally I adjust it to the second (middle) position, which is right for me when shooting from a rest, no problem. Once, however, back in the early days of ownership and conversion and just for the hell of it, I adjusted it down to its shortest position and with iron sights, no scope, fired a round. It scared the hell out of me. The recoil bounced the receiver back toward my nose where it stopped short and quick at what seemed like only a couple of inches from it. I had visions of my nose
  4. The Chub certainly would be noticed. Nice price. SGM is asking $170. When has it become possible to get a muzzle break that slides over the barrel and is clamped or screwed? Seems to me that only barrels with threads could take one and if I remember right, some of the Saigas came with threads and some didn't.
  5. When I was last on this list with any regularity, there was discussion about muzzle breaks and in particular the absence of threading on some or all Saiga barrels. Browsing YouTube today I came up an extended review of the .308 and was interested to learn that the muzzle break on this fellow's carbine is an SGM Tactical which "slides around the stock rifle front sight and locks tight around the front sight and barrel." It also is noted that 3/16 of an inch is required from the end of the barrel to the front sight. The cost is $170. Anybody familiar with the SGM Tactical? It would be nice--
  6. Me again. In examining the sling ring below the forearm, I see that it may be possible to remove it (?) and re-position it on an accessories rack at the side of the forearm. Anybody understand what I'm talking about and is it possible?
  7. Happy New Year, all. I have a couple of topics. First, I've recently purchased a side mount from Carolina Shooters (SKU# UTG-MTU016-U978S, $49. 95) and a Bushnell TRS-25 red dot from Amazon. At what range do you zero this sight? I've seen recommendations ranging from 25 yards to 36 to 50 to 100. As for iron sights, I have my converted .308 carbine dialed in at 100 yards and of course would like the red dot and irons to jibe. How is that done? Second question: I have a two-point Blackhawk sling connected at the rear of my telescopic Tapco butt stock and to a ring located be

    Recoil

    Got back on the range after two cataract operations this summer. Am shooting a converted Saiga .308, using Wolf poly which I managed to buy up a bunch before the last couple or so national panics. Shooting iron sights. As usual, placed today most of 20 shots into a 10-inch paper plate at 100 yards, once warmed up taking a shot about every five seconds. Did the same at 50 yards, battle sights, and formed a nice little group in the southwest corner of the plate. All of this was shooting from a rest, seated, and I have a little bi-pod up front to help steady. Also used my shoulder sling.
  9. I posted this in the general section, figure somebody here might know more. The feds have purchased an estimated 1.6 billion rounds of ammo, ostensibly for assignment to Homeland Defense, the IRS, Social Security and as I understand it an agency that oversees domestic fish and streams. According to the media, the predominance of rounds are in .40 cal., 9mm, .223/5.56 and ".357." I put quotes around .357 because I haven't seen any information to determine whether they talking about .357 Mag or .357 Sig. I'm presuming that it's Sig. Anybody know?

  11. Thanks for your input. Response otherwise has not been overwhelming. I've read through most of the related posts. As usual, there are many opinions and recommendations, some at cross purposes or so it seems. Nearly as confusing as the threads on scopes. Mounts for this, mounts for that, screws and clamps and rails. Picatinnys. Boggles the mind. Since to date I've been a Tapco guy, and my needs are simple, I've just decided to get their bipod/vertical grip combination, extends to about eight inches. I know its not as steady nor durable as the aluminums, but mostly what I'll use it for i
  12. I'd like to get a bipod. Top of the line not necessary, just something serviceable for target shooting and the occasional hillock in a defensible position. My first thought is the Universal or UTG Tactical, both available through Cheaper Than Dirt. Each has a Picatinny mount (the UTG with a swivel) and said to "accomodate almost every type of rifle." My .308 is converted with an IntraFuse/Tapco forearm. I've added a forward grip. Will either of these pods adapt easily to my forearm or is something else required? Thanks for your input.
  13. Thanks, folks. Lots of info to digest. Your input is appreciated.
  14. Some sort of problem with the original thread. For one, I was the only one responding to it. I'm 70 years old and wear trifocals. A month ago in Arizona I fired a Weatherby .30-06 with a scope. The way the scope was set, I had to get down in there close to find a picture not infringed by the black. The rifle kicked back and the scope ring caught me in the bridge of the nose. Surprised the hell out of me. You could say I didn't have it held tight enough into the shoulder, and that may be the case. But a few minutes before I fired an old lever-action Marlin in .45-70 at 75 yards and

Surprised the hell out of me. You could say I didn't have it tight enough into the shoulder, and that may be the case. But a few minutes before I fired an old lever-action Marlin in .45-70 at 75 yards and put a round between the 9 and 10 rings on the second shot, iron sights. Handed it over after that
