  1. If you start convicting politicians for fraud and stealing then we better build more prisons.
  2. Paid $300 for mine and after conversion it is still the best rifle in the safe and it shoots AR mags.I would go for it. Already gots things that shoot 556 and use AR mags. Don't wants AK that shoots 556 and uses AR mags.
  3. Came across an unconverted Saiga 223 "shotgun" at the lgs today. The tag was turned so I couldn't read the price. I asked the clerk "How much for the unconverted Saiga?" He goes, "Which one is that?". So I helped him figure out which one it was... It was $550 and in barely fired condition. I was tempted but don't really want a 223. I commented if it was a 5.45 I would take it. The fudd behind the counter said, "Oh that ammo is next to impossible to find!" Um, yeah.
  4. I've been bit by the Grendel bug myself. A 20" 6.5 upper will be ordered soon from grendelhunter.com I've heard great things about his uppers. He uses good barrels, hand laps the uppers, and his prices are great.
  5. Aero Precision makes nice stuff, and they are in your home state. I recommend Aero Precision. And since that doesn't mean much... People who know a lot more about ARs than I do recommend Aero Precision.
  6. After seeing the coordinated press releases from both companies today I'm not buying the "we didn't know" bullshit. They tried to back door the citizens of IL by taking an exemption to the law in exchange for not standing against it. Wink, wink. Got caught. They played a stupid game. And now they win stupid prizes. Honestly I feel for the employees that are going to get fucked over this. Owners and upper management, eat shit.
  7. This was posted over on arfcom. At this point I think it will take something dramatic to turn the tide that has risen against RRA. I think they should declare they want nothing to do with the exemption and they will immediately leave IL if this law passes.
  8. Well scratch the M1A from the "someday" list. It blows to see iconic manufacturers turn their backs on the people just to cover their own asses. And the truly idiotic thing is the gun community is well known for it's treatment of traitors. Did they not think we could put 2 and 2 together? The right thing to do is fight every anti-freedom law tooth and nail and if the state you do business in can't support freedom, then take your company to a state that does. Witness MagPul.
  9. Now that it's "legal" I don't even want to shoulder my Draco any more...
  10. https://www.sb-tactical.com/blog/sb-tactical-announces-reversal-atf-open-letter-use-sb-tactical-pistol-stabilizing-braces/ PRESS RELEASE: SB Tactical™ Announces Reversal of ATF Open Letter on the Use of SB Tactical Pistol Stabilizing Braces® Written By: SB-Tactical SB Tactical_ATF Reversal of Open Letter PositionSaint Petersburg, Fla. (April, 25, 2017) – SB Tactical™, inventors and manufacturers of the Pistol Stabilizing Brace®, is excited to announce that the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (BATFE) has issued SB Tactical a reversal letter containing a sensible clarification of the Bureau’s position on the lawful use of SB Tactical braces. The new clarification of opinion letter states, “an NFA firearm has not necessarily been made when the device is not reconfigured for use as a shoulder stock – even if the attached firearm happens to be fired from the shoulder. To the extent that the January 2015 Open Letter implied or has been construed to hold that incidental, sporadic, or situational “use” of an arm-brace (in its original approved configuration) equipped firearm from a firing position at or near the shoulder was sufficient to constitute “redesign,” such interpretations are incorrect and not consistent with ATF’s interpretation of the statute or the manner in which it has historically been enforced.” SB Tactical, along with the law offices of Mark Barnes & Associates, have worked tirelessly for more than two years to correct what they believed to be an inaccurate interpretation of “redesign,” related to the Pistol Stabilizing Brace. “It has always been our belief that the addition of our Pistol Stabilizing Brace benefits shooters, both disabled and able-bodied, and that neither strapping it to your arm nor shouldering a brace equipped pistol would constitute ‘redesign’ of a pistol to a NFA firearm”, said Alex Bosco, inventor, founder and CEO of SB Tactical. “We are strongly encouraged by the ATF’s reversal of opinion and commend their willingness to continually review policy, including their own opinions, to ensure public safety and the fulfillment of their mission.” Both SB Tactical and Mark Barnes & Associates are proud to be at the forefront of protecting and preserving the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding Americans. Mark Barnes echoed Bosco’s praise of the ATF’s new guidance and stated that “it’s clear that the Bureau has no intention or desire to prosecute law abiding citizens using SB Tactical Pistol Stabilizing Braces. Their decision to act should be commended.”
  11. OK, here's my suggestion. Get ready, it's gonna sting. Forget buying another 308 rifle and spend your money on ammo and training to use the one you have. You have a good rifle and a good scope. Learn to use it. You have a long way to go before you will have to worry about which barrel is going to shoot 1/10 MOA better. By that time you'll either realize that you weren't as interested in the long range game as you thought, or you'll have enough experience to choose your next rifle with full confidence. You can start your long range training by going to youtube and watching the Sniper 101 series by TiborasaurusRex. It's a 101 part series and there is a straight up shit-ton of information in there.
  12. Yeah saw some of those, kind of a controversy on that type of design. Physics would say the more pushed forward the more pushed back ... Well yes, but that's not the whole story. To grossly oversimplify, recoil is proportional to the mass being accellerated times the velocity squared. Assuming that you can't change the recoil from the bullet itself, that leaves the hot gas that is also expelled which is actually a substantial portion of free recoil. Normal brakes redirect some of this gas so that it pushes in a direction other than straight back. A linear brake still expells the gas forward but it reduces the velocity of the gas and thereby reduces the recoil. That energy that would have been recoil winds up as heat. If you think about it a suppressor is a large linear brake. It slows the expelled gas to subsonic velocity to reduce the sound signature but also reduces recoil as a side benefit. And it gets damn hot in the process. Linear brakes are by their nature not as efficient as baffle type brakes but if you put a shroud on a fairly large baffle brake you should get some benefit from it.
  13. Yeah I ordered 20. Cause I need 20 more AK mags... But I couldn't resist. $7.49 each with shipping. And I bought 15 of the PSA PMAGs too. Damn these deals. Good thing my wife just started working again.
  14. SOLD OUT And another non-panic deal. Surplus Grade 2 AK Mags $6.65 each + shipping. The description doesn't say Polish but the guys in the comments say they're Polish so maybe they are, or maybe mixed. https://www.midwayusa.com/product/1918432857/military-surplus-magazine-ak-47-762x39mm-30-round-steel-matte
  15. SOLD OUT The next great non-panic deal. PSA has gen 2 black PMAGs for $7.99 ea shipped with coupon code PMAG. http://palmettostatearmory.com/magpul-pmag-30-5-56x45-magazine-mag571-blk.html
  16. I have 1 brake on 1 rifle. All other rifles have flash hiders or no muzzle device. I put a SureFire ProComp brake on the SPR hoping it would help me spot my own shots at long range. It does help. I was just at the range a couple of days ago putting some hits on a 700 yard gong with some 77gr Razor Core. (That's great ammo by the way for the price.) But I had to put plugs in under the muffs because it was ringing my ears with just the muffs. Guys on either side of me weren't loving it either. I do wish I could run a brake on my 300WSM. The rifle is fairly light and it's just brutal to shoot. But a brake on that rifle would be 10x worse than the one on my SPR. It's a hunting rifle and I don't always have earpro when I'm hunting.
  17. As of right now the government can't be sure what guns I have because we are still free to buy and sell without government approval. They may know how many guns I've bought on a 4473 (and never doubt they keep that information despite the law requiring them to delete it). They for sure know what nfa items I have. But they don't know how many guns I've sold or bought person-to-person. That is our defense against confiscation. The government realizes this too, and that's why the push for "universal background checks". So no gun can ever change hands legally without going in the database. "Universal background checks" is registration. So if you say you will never register your guns then that must include never accepting ubc.
