    PSA KS47

    Now, my AR-47's, on the other hand, not so much. They were assembled with the best stuff available. I suspect the ASC mag's may be a large part of the problem, I haven't really pursued solutions since I purchased the Sig. -Guido in TX I modded my my asc mags (dremeled like a bitch), ran a h2 buffer weight, and dremeled the m4 feed ramps to fit 30 cal bullets. My ar47 pistol runs like a champ now. PM me if you need any pics of the mags to see how much material to remove.

    I run the ALG ACT trigger on my x39 AR and it's had 100% primer ignition. Granted my round count is pretty low at around 400 or so, but it seems to work and the cases have nice dents in the primer. I also run an extended firing pin too though. Trigger weight is a little stiff at 5.5-6lbs but the break is clean and crisp. The biggest obstacle I had was getting the mags to feed reliably, but this one avoids that by using the AK mags. I wonder if they'll eventually sell stripped lowers?
  4. Im still alive and happy to report all is quiet on the western front. Some of the gossip ladies here already notified the correct people for me, so thats cool. Its just been business as usual, but with my head on a swivel and escape routes planned in all directions just in case. Thanks for the tips.
  5. So let's say hypothetically a co-worker is known to be "off", takes antipsychotics, talks to himself when no one is around, and does a lot of generally weird things. He has also admitted to being kicked out of VA housing for not taking his meds or going to his meetings. Yesterday he comes in boasting about buying a S&W Shield and asking where he can take conceal carry classes. Everyone gets immediately on edge. We notice that he spends 5 minutes staring at the emergency exit diagram of the building and also stood at his desk and spent several minutes with a 1000 yard stare surveying the workforce. Now I'm all about gun rights and don't want to take them from anybody, but everyone here knows this guy isn't right mentally. What to do?
  6. Thanks! You sound a lot like me. That car was covered in a layer of dust until Saturday. It just sits in the garage making flat spots while everything else gets tended to or played with. I bet your FC with the solid rear and turbo moves down the strip.
  7. I got asked to make a video of my car by Quinton TV and had it posted up this morning. I have a side bet with a friend that has the DMC DeLorean on there as to who can get the most views, so make sure to give mine a watch lol. Thanks
  8. Bought a FN made Browning A5 a few weeks before my 18th, and had to have my dad pick it up for me. Still have it, and it isn't going anywhere.
  9. You'd think so, but like anything with time you get bored with it. I've had the car since '01 and did the V8 swap in '05. I only drive it 3 or 4 times a year to work now, and just hang on to it because of how much money I've spent on it over the years. I did find out that I need to re-adjust the differential to have less lock up and I need bigger brakes though. If nothing else, I at least have a renewed interest in it again.
  10. Thought I'd throw a link up to yesterday's Cupcake Meet 24 parade laps around Circuit of the Americas. It was nice just to get the car out and drive it. I'm ashamed of how long it sits in between knocking the cob webs off Luckily they had an 80mph limit, because my summer tires weren't liking the 32 degree temps
  11. I thought everyone already knew he got away and started his rap career. <iframe width="420" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/rurBHWxYaR0" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

    Trigger Pull Weight Results

    I've wanted one, especially with the low price, but I need a new caliber like I need another hole in my ass. The Timney sportster showed up for the KAR98, and felt awesome, but I couldn't install back into the receiver because I ordered the wrong one. I have a Carl Gustafs Sweedish Mauser with the 1 3/4 trigger guard and evidently half the guns have a 2 inch trigger guard. What's the story on the Ruger M77?
  13. I had some cash back money burning a hole in my pocket so I picked up a trigger pull gauge to test a rifle before and after a trigger upgrade. I went ahead and did a 3 pull test on guns around the house. Here's the results. S&W Shield with Apex trigger and sear 4.2lbs S&W 686-6 stock trigger 10.5 double action 3.25 single S&W 642 Wolf Spring kit 12lbs Remington R1 1911 stock trigger 3.5lbs XDM 4.5 stock 5.5lbs Walther pk380 8.5 double 5.5 single Taurus PT738 5.2lbs Ruger SR22 pistol 8.5 double 4 single AR pistol with ALG combat 6lbs AR rifle CMC Flat 3lbs S&W MP15-22 stock 5lbs Saiga S308 with Dinzag modified trigger 3lbs Browning A5 stock trigger 3.25lbs FN FNAR stock 3.5lbs Kar98 7lbs stock with Timney 2-4lbs coming Impressions: I don't have any stock pulls for the Shield, but it was pretty bad and the Apex kit was a noticable improvement. I know the Saiga had a decent trigger but 3lbs!! Great jog Dinzag My 1954 model FN produced A5 has a sweet factory trigger at 3.25 7lbs on my bolt gun??!?! That Timney should make a pretty big difference.
