    I guess I might be one of the few that doesn't care how it matches up to my boxes of ammo... I see it as being a weapon, my first concern is cramming as many rounds as possible into it without compromising the reliability and effectiveness of my weapon. I wonder if it would cheaper for them to just make a huge batch of larger cap mags, leaving them ribbed so they can be cut down to the capacity you [the end user] want. I am picturing my 12 round mags, which are set up that way.

    I am really excited to see where this goes! I wouldn't be interested in a DS for anything under 12-16 rounds. A DS 8 wouldnt be at all interesting to me. I would buy the HELL out of some DS in the range of 20-15 rounds.
  3. I have never sold a gun. I have a pump action that needs some real gunsmithing love to ever function correctly, but it was the first weapon I ever obtained, Grandpa sold it to me. That said, I purchased a Ruger SR40c over a year ago. I dont know how well I like it, and I am going to replace it with an XDM40. Once I replace it I will most likely not sell the Ruger, but it will sit in the safe for ever and a half. By the way, I had a 91 Camaro with a 383 Stoker, high duration cam, carbed edelbrock intake, and 3 inch straight-pipes. I loved crushing Stangs. I also had a 1979 Firebird T/a with a Pontiac 400. I kick myself for selling these every single day! Now, I have to say, my 96 Cummins is far more fun, more powerful, and gets much better fuel economy.
  4. Thats a unique idea, but not the direction I will go with this weapon, I love the underfolding but I was looking to improve upon it. I cant believe I had not heard of it though, I can imagine there is a huge number of people who would LOVE that, I just am not one of them. Not for this weapon. Thank you for sharing. =)
  5. Cut off my title, oops. >.< Found this, appears to be a bit different than my folder. Wonder if it would fit? $30 after shipping. http://www.sportsmansguide.com/net/cb/cb.aspx?p=WX2&i=297566
  6. Howdy yall Problem: Trying to improve cheek weld on Polish Underfolder with red dot. Samson riser doesnt fit... What next? Background: My beautiful Polish AK, utilizing a NoDak receiver and a Primary Arms red dot is amazing! I just would like a better cheek weld for it. I purchased the Samson riser, incredibly excited to use it, and it didn't fit. This weapon is easily my favorite rifle. Solution 1: Identify and purchase a second underfolder stock that will be more compatible with this riser. Determine if new underfolder will fit. Solution 2: Price out a direct replacement for my current stock so that if it were to be damaged beyond use during modification it can be replaced. Solution 3: Return it for a refund, suck it up, and deal. Close: Looking for input from those who have experience, thank you for your time.
  7. Valid! I have wondered about how stiff they lock up, but they difficulty to install is a bit of a deal breaker.... I remember a photo on here of a weird stock that seemed interesting. It had a steel rod with a the butt pad at the end.... instead of folding you could collapse it, and the rod would run down either the left or right side of the weapon, till the butt pad was all the way against the rear of the weapon. It was odd looking, and I cant remember who made it...
  8. Hey yall, I know, another conversation about STOCKS, some of you veterans are probably screaming at your keyboard telling me to use the search and such. Here, let me help! “Joe you goofy nerd, find the search button and utilize it! Don’t waist my LIFE with your stupid questions.” Admit it. You feel better now. I purchased an ATI folding/telescoping stock less than one year ago when I did my conversion, and this thing is…. Complete and utter garbage that I wouldn’t trust on a god forsaken .22. I would never even consider defacing my airsoft gun with this trash, and I am offended by the fact that they sell it for a shotgun. More than once the worthless screw that holds this plastic piece of trash together has come out, causing the stock to fall onto the ground. Even besides the fact that it, well, never worked, I didn’t like it. The hinge is enormous and loose, the stock is heavy (Yet crap plastic) and when folded its still extremely large and bulky. Its time to get a new stock. I some opinions from the Gurus, what’s the best folding stock you have ever used and why? Best in weight, comfort, and cheek weld? I have heard awesome things about Bone Steal Folders. Im not apposed to cutting the tang if the stock is right. Thanks for reading my angry rant and thank you in advance for you input!
  9. Well, ordered the 16 inch kit, its got the extended rails that go beyond the gas block. I ordered some M16 style front and rear flip down sights that have adjustable windage, I figure with a good set of peeps and such a beautiful long sight plane I can practice my iron sight accuracy till I buy a good scope. Im not stoked about the Carbine Length Gas System, (Mid-length would be better) but I can deal. I did decide to go with a chrome lined barrel. I couldnt wait and hope something came into stock, in these troubled times having an imperfect weapon can be better than waiting and MAYBE getting the right weapon later. If I find that I would rather have a longer barrel later, I will buy a second upper and quality longer heavy barrel for distance shots. Or, I might find that the 16 inch is perfect. I will let yall know what I find. Now I am looking to add a 5.56 to my growing collection, Im looking at building a piston driven 16 inch AR15... They have a real reasonably priced kit on the same site, so I will just wait to see how the shipping, fit, and finish on the 308 kit is before I buy. Thanks yall for the help in finding the right parts.
  10. They are NOT air brakes, they are Air over hydraulic. They are just like brakes in a pickup truck, except instead of using vacuum assist, they use pressure assist. Just like on a pickup, you blow a wheel cylinder, you loose fluid pressure for all wheels on that circuit. Unlike your pickup, that has two circuits, the Deuce has only one.
  11. Thanks for posting that link, I know there was a story of a guy who went quite a bit farther after a very comparable incident. In the 50s when the M34s and M35s were put out with gas engines having a single circuit brakes was the norm, but in the 70s when they updated them to Multi fuel I cant believe they didnt upgrade the brake system. Either way, I think its the best pickup truck I could ever own, fallowed by my Ram Cummins 2500.
  12. You make a perfectly valid point, but I only have two weapons that have never managed to fail. One is an AK 47 and the other is my Colt Trooper Mark III. My S12 has not failed in a long time, but it has failed. My pump action is an effective baseball bat. Your point is perfectly valid, and I would not consider a revolver shotgun to be a battle ready weapon at all though.
  13. Well, Im buying the 16 inch kit on my payday. I wish I could get the 20 inch, but its out of stock and I dont want a 24. If I find myself dissatisfied by it, I will get a match grade barrel later and try that, but it sounds like I am going to be pretty pleased by the 16. I now need to do some research on Chrome vs Non Chrome and I need to figure out if I give two craps about gas system lengths....
  14. Before I go any farther, let me state that my pump action shot gun is un-reliable off brand because its been heavily used and left loaded for years by Grand Pa. I would not trust it for home defense. I love my S12, ALOT for fun and end of the world preparedness. That stated, I love the idea of the gun in the photo. I could load 5 rounds, and there is no chance of mag spring wear/fail from age, wear, ect. Also, very few moving parts and a time perfected design... If it was affordable I would load it and leave it by the bedside, ignore it till the day it is needed.... That said, I could most likely buy a much better quality pump for WAY cheaper.
