  1. Firebird has a few matched receiver sets from older model guns that are for sale. Stripped lower and matched upper, they'll come with the ramp installed and both pistol grip and buttstock adapters. Three of them are black and two are in camo. Price is 250, contact Firebird if you're interested.
  2. Camera guy was a little preoccupied, and my pistol safety broke halfway through the stage... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jfKwfrvsL_w
  3. Out of curiosity, why shoot .308 instead of .223 when the shotgun is going to put you in open no matter what?
  4. This is why I don't have one of those. Had a gf once that told me she didn't want me shooting, haven't talked to her since.
  5. We still have one or two in the shop, we haven't made them in a long time.
  6. I imagine if there were Saigas that didn't run well they weren't ones you built.
  7. If the safety detent is a ball detent instead of the spring and cap system this can be caused by it backing off a little. The tension from the detent is what holds the safety in place. The Firebird ambi safetys can't walk like this due to the levers on either side retaining the whole assembly in place, but the screws can come loose on the levers. I would suggest using blue locktite on them. In any case with any safety that uses the ball detent instead of the spring and cap system it can back off and cause the safety to rotate freely.
  8. That's awesome. How many of them were Firebird guns? I know Henrik shoots one but I don't know who all else was there.
  9. I heard there were quite a few MKA's at BRM3G, how did everyone fare?
  10. As far as the wear on the hammer goes, there was a side by side comparison done on this forum. Unfortunately the discussion on that thread devolved into some pretty heated comments. The owner of the gun was adamant that it had only had 80 rounds fired. We observed about half of the wear you show on your hammer on the example we had. We did a Rockwell test on the hammer and it wasn't even close to the hardness that is absolutely required for these components. Your original hammer and disconnector are manufactured from an appropriate material and have the correct heat treat, they're just not 92
  11. I imagine it would be a lot easier being a UK citizen. I didn't research it, just looked at what my landlord had to go through to get his and didn't bother.
  12. How many rounds through the gun? As you mentioned, the secondary sear is what prevents the hammer from following the bolt foward when it chambers a new round. As you release the trigger, the disconnector releases the hammer and it catches on the primary sear surface of the trigger. If the wear on your hammer continues it can get to the point where the secondary sear no longer functions, and there is a possibility of your gun either going full auto or, more likely, the hammer just following and preventing the gun from functioning. As far as your bolt catching in the rear of the upper, in s
  13. Off topic but I don't envy you folks living in the UK. When I lived there I looked into getting a shotgun and the amount of paperwork was just beyond comprehension, so I went 8 years without a gun instead.
  14. Nothing wrong with building stuff for your own use, but it seems to be an awful expensive alternative to just buying the targets outright from a company that already has all the necessary equipment to manufacture them. That is unless you happen to have a waterjet or submerged plasma machine just lying around.
  15. The plastic cracking could be possible, but I don't think a 1/4" hole is large enough to catch the spring. But just to be on the safe side you could try it with a 1/8" hole first. Edited to add: You could also consider drilling your holes on the side of the magazine where you wouldn't have to worry about the curvature of the spring catching your hole at all.
