    MDARMS X CSSPECS steel dbl stack mag alive or dead?

    I would not get much hope up.... Mike at MDarms won't even give a price per unit. My view is that I need at least 10-12 months to make a product. The 2020 elections are only ?? 20 months away... Anyway I would need to hear something really soon and something good so that we could roll on this fast and hard... Much more time goes by and the value is gone because you can't sell it.. I need at least six to twelve months of sales to break even on a project like this... So I need to hear back like now or honestly last month if this was going to happen, otherwise you are wasting your time. Because I don't have enough time to break even. At the end of the day Mike at MDarms needs to get this done if it is ever going to happen. He teased this product a decade ago, that is a long long time.. Edit to add: He says he has some other people talking about it.. So maybe something happens? 2020 is a big wild card since pretty much every single democrat is saying gun bans and confiscation, even saying to change the SCOTUS by stacking the court to make it possible.. Obama said he was not going to take anyones guns during the 2008 elections, after he won you could hardly buy a box of ammo, so for contrast 2020 is likely going to be a pretty wild ride, 2021 will likely be a total famine for gun parts sellers if trump wins again, or a bust out sale followed by being shut down and sued out of existence... Either way 2020 and 2021 are going to be very unpleasant.

    I don't really like the device.. I have the vepr-12 version and I don't find the time savings to be worth the possible malfunction risk.

    You might want to get cracking on that. Since you first teased the idea you lost four states to sell to.. With 8 of 50 states not able to benefit from the magazines anymore.. We are on pace to have that number go up to 12-14 in the next year or so unless the SCOTUS steps in on the gun bans. The viability of the product greatly depends on people being allowed to own it.

    Actually I started contact on the open board.. You followed up with a PM. Odd.. I wrote to you on three additional occasions as I was passing through Ohio on I75 on my way to and from Michigan.. I went to Michigan a couple weeks after Irma.. Came back a couple weeks later.. Went again twice in 2018, I wrote in July of 2018 again as I was stopping in cleveland on my way up and would be going through Dayton on my way back. No reply to my PMs, which are also not showing... Good chance your PM box was full, the old version of the site had a smaller number of PMs before it was full if I recall. There was an active thread at the time where I posted that I tried to contact but heard nothing.. At the time the site had a feature showing when you last logged in, and there was a REALLY long time frame with no log in.. Again I have no idea.. I'm somewhat still interested. Prices are the MAIN factor. I know what my side of things cost, I want to know how much to use the design.

    Jamming issues

    It is a typical AK pattern. You have an extractor claw on the bolt, and there is a stationary ejector that is on the receiver cross support (ejector block). So the question is if your bolt is retracting far enough to strip the round from the bolt or if the ejector is damaged. Sometimes people installed rubber buffers that will prevent the action from opening far enough for the bolt to pass the ejector.. Or the trigger pack can come apart enough to prevent the bolt from fully cycling.

    if you could post a photo of the malfunction that would likely help
  7. We used to have a lot of fun. We would go to the Orlando indoor field a lot, the field ended up closing after a few years because it had a reputation of letting "professional teams" of 20-40 year old guys group up on one team against all the walk ons which where mostly kids...when I went I would show up with a gang box full of gear, like 20+ guns that I would buy broken for $20 and upgrade, and loan them out to kids that had walmart stuff. And then we would group the newbies with a couple of our group into 5-6 person fire teams and we would show the newbies how to take out the "pro level" players... It got to the point that the refs would see us and holler into the ready room "hey (insert team name) your ass kicking just showed up"... Good times! The trigger lag can be reduced with high torque motors, mosfets, large Lipo batteries and a "prewind timer module" that stops the piston in the retracted position.. As for casting. I have a pile of brass, a propane furnace and a crucible but as of yet no castings.. I'm trying to make a part for a spot welder out of the brass.. I got a pair of 15kva rocker arm spot welders for $300 but they use 1.75" arms and I'm standardised on 2" and 1.5" and having odd ball sizes is annoying.. So I want to remake the parts.. So I'm interested in learning more about casting.

    Their website is still up, but I gotta imagine those mossberg checks are a lot easier than making stuff.
  9. I do airsoft, I used to play fairly often.. The big thing is for most fields is that they have two limits generally, 30 rounds per second, and 400 fps. I built more than a few rigs that could do both, but they only came on the field when you had flagrant cheaters. Almost every regular player had their cheater buster rig, but they normally did not come out. Like you are playing capture the flag and someone will just run to the flag despite it being fully covered.. We had one that the guy ran for the flag and 12 people hit him, including one that had a spot light, and you could see this pyramid of plastic roaring toward him and spraying off him for a full eight to ten seconds.. So he only got hit like 3,000 times, changed the flag anyway and only indicated being hit while walking back, then had the gaul to complain about "overkill". Generally I played with a full sized M14 with irons only, in semi only. It shot 400 fps on the dot, but the big thing was it shot +/- 2 fps which when running .3g pellets averaged a 4" group at 150' and the trajectory was almost perfectly flat... Normally I'd work my way up the field until I got behind one of the better chunks of cover, then I worked at thinning the other team out so my guys could work up the field. My other specialized gun was an MP5 that shot 280 fps and 28rps. But I had all metal impact parts, so it probably bordered on causing hearing damage.. That was for running at the indoor in the dark hallways, the intimidation factor was really high, it really did sound like it was going to hurt bad.. I normally paired that with a few thunder B grenades.. Those are definitely not hearing safe.

    I'm willing to look at the samples and discuss the fee cost.. My contact information is widely available, at any point he wants to pursue the possibility I'm ready to hear it. My interest in the idea is tempered with my own experiences with product production. The more complicated an item is the higher the failure rate. Fee cost is the most important thing I need to know. My understanding is that the feed tower section is mossbergs patent. So they can prevent any aftermarket tower from being made.. So I would not get your hopes up.

    Kalashnikov USA finally shipping Saiga 12

    I would suggest trying a different round just to be sure.. I have had three warranty emails very close together where the shell used was Federal slugs.. Maybe there is a bad batch floating around? Normally the above malfunction is caused by the front lip of the shell getting damaged. Try pulling the malfunction and seeing where the damage is on the shell... Also check dropping a few shells fresh out of the box into the chamber. What magazines are you using?
  12. Just a consideration since you get to set your schedule.. I take Sunday morning off for Church, and I take either a Wednesday or Thursday off every other week.... I hate weekends, everything I want to do is overcrowded on weekends.. Wednesdays are generally great days to take off, the boat launches are empty, state parks are pretty much empty, beaches are empty.. Theme parks not as crowded, the public rifle/pistol range has like three people at it.. If I need to do some banking or shopping everything is open and well stocked. My Wife works retail and when she applied she stated that she wanted to work weekends... She got put in a higher position job because she was happy to work weekends.

    12 round magazines

    What video says they should not move? This batch was done as more of a "universal fit" which means that we opted for factory magazine -.010" so they are going to have a little wiggle in some guns.. To few people could operate a metal file to sell them as fitting tightly. The amount of movement present in the video will not cause function issues, the amount the magazine is actually moving in the shotgun is significantly less than it is at the bottom of the magazine.. From years of past posts I am aware that your 20 gauge has not been exactly been the most reliable. To me is seems like something is not right with the shotgun itself. The front of the bolt carrier extension broke off, that sounds like it is over gassed, but also that you are not getting ejection is strange. If you are having failures to load a clear picture of the actual failure, with the ammo types would be very helpful.. Good lighting is helpful also because I am trying to see interactions of small parts inside the gun to figure out the failure.. It is good practice to use a metal pick of sorts to clean the gas ports in the barrel.. They can foul with certain types of ammo fairly quickly. Also what magazine and ammo combination have you found to be reliable?
  14. Grip looks standard.. Selector is a maybe. Trigger is likely not standard maybe it is ar10 pattern? The hammer is longer to reach the firing pin on higher bore center. The front stock is aluminum looks like M-lok.. But I don't have anything M-lok to test with it..
  15. We just got one of these in, basically it is a giant AR-15. I don't think anything on the shotgun is really cross compatible with the AR-15, and likely not the AR-10 either. I'm going to do more of a review and I have someplace to be in half an hour so I'll update it when I get home later tonight. The photos are not exactly awesome, I had my phone in my pocket and ended up sweat damaging my camera... I have a video that I did taking the gun apart just talking about the parts.. I'll try to add that tomorrow since I'm trying to edit in some still shots into it. The Shotgun as it comes. Showing the lower vs a normal AR-15. The lower one is the JTS-M12AR Comparing the uppers, the lower one is the JTS-M12AR Buffer and spring.. Lower one is the JTS-M12AR. The buffer is two parts with a large coil spring inside, like an extra shock absorber of sorts. Showing the stock tube, the lack of additional holes makes use of an AR-15 stock non adjustable.. If the tube is not standard to an AR-10, maybe the better option would be to remove the stock tube and mill it to match the AR-15 pattern. But at best you are going to have a two or three point adjustment, because longer than A2 length would not really fit anyone, and any shorter and the tube will stick out the back.. As is factory stock is not terrible, the recoil pad is nearly 1" of rubber, firm enough to give some support with magnum slugs.. And the stock is pretty much as short as you are going to get since the tube runs the whole length. An AR-15 stock does fit over the tube but there is only one position roughly 3/4" from the end of the tube. Stock seemed to fit very tightly. It is roughly equal to an AR-15 fully extended, so not super long. This is the spring loaded catch that stops the buffer from popping out.. Ar-15s have the same thing but in the center. Not sure why this one is different. The shotgun has two chokes, they are REM chokes. You get a plain Modified that fits flush and a Cylinder bore with muzzle brake.. Bolt carrier group compared with an AR-15, the AR-15 is obviously smaller. Showing the gas piston system.. An advantage this system has is that there are no threads, it is toolless for cleaning just rotate to the top and pull and the whole gas system comes out the front.. Showing the receiver compared to a normal AR-15
