  1. Stock Arsenal SGL31 brake. I concur with your comments, but this isn't my rifle and I won't be around to clean it. I'm wondering if there is anything that can be done to help the inevitable (and obvious) result. The owner of the gun in question travels 2-3 days at a time for work with little to no notice, as in the phone rungs and he's gone starting right now. I can see the gun not getting cleaned for a few days due to this. Trying to figure out how to help the situation if at all possible.
  2. of 7n6 Would someone with first hand knowledge give me some input regarding the suitability of powder coating or cerakoting the muzzle brake and gas tube on a Saiga 5.45 ? This gun will see a continual diet of 7n6 and at times it will be a couple of days to over a week before cleanup can be properly done. How hard is it to get cerakote or powder coat inside the muzzle brake and gas tube ? I know the outside will present zero problems during application, but the couple of people locally who *think* it can be done say it might turn out half assed at best. Looking for some thought
  3. 7n6 isn't bad, but Silver Bear is more accurate and non-corrosive. I'm not afraid of the clean up with corrosive, but if I can avoid it without spending a huge amount, I'll do it.
  4. Thank you sir, that's just what I needed.
  5. Can someone point me to a pic, I've searched with several queries and still come up blank. IP Boards search functioanlity is lame.
  6. I can do that but it will be this weekend before I have a camera, mine is on vacation with inlaws. I would suggest a left folder because it is on the opposite side of the bolt handle. I would suggest a right folder because it folds to the side oppiste the optics mounting rail. I went with a Chaos quad rail so I would rather block the sight rail on the receiver than have the folder on the bolt handle side. The hinge tucks up nicely to the receiver and doesn't stick out like an abomination, so either way it will be compact.
  7. Mine took about three weeks plus shipping time to arrive. Their webpage has a note about how slammed they are with orders and states orders will take longer than normal to process due to the volume. I didn't like the idea of waiting either, but I'm 110% glad I did. I will most likely order one or two more soon to go on other guns and expect a long wait. It seems like everything in the gun business worth having is back ordered right now, so Bonesteel is no different than everyone else in this regard. Hang in there, it's worth the wait.
  8. I am trying to remove the rear sight on my S12 and it isn't moving - period. I have tried drifting it out, (tried both ways and nada) with a punch, clamping on it with a set of hydraulic jaws and trying to hammer it out with a ball peen and some other stuff that didn't work. I pulled the gun up under the light with a magnifier to get some measurements off it to see if the dovetail was tapered or ??? and in the process see two small pins (look almost like whiskers) that are attached to the bottom of the sight and appear to be attatched at the base of the dovetail... looks like two littl
  9. I picked up a Galil style left folder and a left folding collapsible AR stock from Bonesteel. Took the guns to the range today with both mounted to see how I like them, I have to say the fit and finish on both is simply excellent in every respect and I doubt I will ever buy another brand of (crap) stock again. Simple to mount, rock solid as hell, functions perfectly... in short, they work great and the whole experience with them has been zero bullshit from square one. Don't hesitate, spend the bucks and don't look back, worth every cent in my opinion. Now, if they will just
  10. Thanks for the ebay suggestion, I'll try that if I can't find some from a forum vendor or other reputable source.
  11. It is for me. Pertinent, helpful suggestions most welcome, blatantly irrelevant personal observations aren't.
  12. I wasn't going to laugh at that, but damn I had to, getting the redistribution of wealth all at once isn't easy
  13. I picked up a Chaos rail from one of the vendors here. When it arrived, I see it doesn't come with rail covers... damn. Where to find ladders to fit the full length of the Chaos std rail ? Cheap is good, as they won't be seeing much (if any) abuse. Using retard politician grade math, I can see somewhere in the food chain of those who make rail covers there must be one seriously rich individual. .50 cents worth of plastic (if that) for $12 and up ? That MUST be more profitable than selling anything else gun related. Have the chinese infiltrated every other market on eart
  14. My opinion matches this exactly.
  15. www.wildwestguns.com Love them or hate them, they do make an interesting lineup of guns.
  16. Best place to shoot a bear is from a distance. If you happen to be cleaning a kill and one surprises you, leave the kill and back away as quickly as you can without running like prey. Once the bear starts digging into the kill you worked so hard for, drop him in his tracks. 45/70 will get the job done (as will others) with good placement. If a bear raises up on you, shoot him in the balls. That will take him down long enough for you to get a second shot in the head/eyes/mouth. Personal advice from a life long friend that has lived in AK for over 20 years now.
  17. I recently spent some time on the range with my first S12. I had great luck after the first mag, everything ran well. I went back to the range today and found reduced recoil buck shot (bought it by mistake) is somewhat of an anomoly for the S12 with the stock gas plug. I also noticed today that the gun seemed to run well and felt like it has settled a little. I know that's total crap, just perception on my part. The moral of this is I am more familiar with the S12 and what to expect in terms of recoil etc.. No way I would attempt to get Cabelas to do anything, they're a bunch o
  18. Is the barrel or the brake threads cut wrongly ? You don't HAVE to do anything, you could toss it in the junk drawer and buy another style etc.. A pic would help tremendously here, as would a little more detail added to your original questions
  19. Cabelas now is selling the S12 for $599. I received a Cabelas e-mail about it last night. Something must be coming down the pike. If Cabelas starts selling S12's it means they are either on end of life or insanely cheap. I also noticed they are selling CAI Zastavas as well so it could be they got a deal with Century on some clearance stuff. Cabelas has a store locator on their website if any of you don't happen to have a crystal ball.
  20. I can't speak to the Arsenal S12's, but their other conversions are excellent. Fit and finish is much better than most (maybe all) with few shortcuts taken. A lot of people say they are over-priced, but when you figure in the parts and labor to get similar results, the price really seems fair. I'm also looking at the Bone Steel folder, but I'm going to pass on it unless they can deliver a left folder in the next 2-3 weeks. I like the design, and really like the mount/hinge, but a right folder just doesn't work for me. I like a full stock (Nato) for aesthetics as well as cost savings. A lot
  21. One drop of nail polish on the thread works pretty well. Easy enough to break with a screwdriver if you need to back it out. Loctite will lose some of it's adhesive properties if it's old and you didn't keep the cap on tight. It sets in the absence of oxygen and deteriorates when exposed. If you really want it to stay on, try some of the wicking loctite, just make damned sure you want it to be on there permanently or you'll be grinding a grip nut from the inside or drilling the head off the bolt.
  22. That's the vid. Looks like he has done more than a few S12's. Great camera work and excellent narrative
  23. Great idea I picked up from GunFun's video links is to use a Zildjan drum stick bag. I picked one up this afternoon and it seems to work great. $12 on sale at guitar center http://www.guitarcenter.com/Zildjian-Drum-Stick-Bag-100156440-i1136117.gc Not ninja rated or ready for a trip to the sand, but for sheer convenience at $12, it works for me.
