    R&R Bolt Carriers

    Thank you, Doug! I'll give it a try. If that doesn't work, I might report back here. I get the feeling you've got more ways of contacting him than I do.
  2. Oh, they're more than that.. The Tiger is a little less than the SVD, being the 'civilian' version of its military counterpart. Last I checked, an SVD usually comes in around $7-8k, I believe it was. It all depends heavily, of course, on condition and what's included. The Chinese NDM-86, being a very good copy, isn't far off from that either. And yes, they're all X54R. To the OP, the Russians fielded one SVD rifleman in a squad with the intent of being a 'marksman', and the rifle being more so a 'DMR' rather than a 'sniper rifle', but with the ability to quickly remove the optic and run with their squad in closer quarters.

    R&R Bolt Carriers

    Has anybody got information on whether or not Robert still does any production? I tried sending an E-mail, asking whether or not the bolt carriers they've got listed on their website are in-stock/available, with no response back. It's been 'at least' a couple weeks, if not closer to a month now. I've needed one for ages. Got some cash now, and am interested in getting one. The gun makes for an expensive wallhanger otherwise, since my carrier broke many moons ago.
  4. Not a .22, but what about something very traditional, a project for both, and just as fun? You could then pick up an already assembled 10/22 later for a few bills. https://www.muzzle-loaders.com/rifles/muzzleloader-kits.html https://www.muzzle-loaders.com/pistols/pistol-kits.html There's also factory receivers on Gunbroker for the 10/22. http://www.gunbroker.com/item/642833559
  5. Been into some nasty firearms myself, but the best ones to date have been a buddy's Marlin 60, and my grandfather's Model 12 from 1924. The model 12, I could believe a person if they told me had never been cleaned since the day it left the factory. Quite literally using a flathead screwdriver to just dig the gunk out of the receiver, layer after layer. The Marlin, though... Nothin' quite like pushing a rod through the bore, and out comes hundreds of little spiders.

    Polymer ar15

    Do NOT use a polymer lower. Ever. It's generally only accepted as being useful as a dedicated .22lr, but even then, they will break eventually. It's not a matter of "if", but "when". If you're looking for weight savings, especially on a direct blowback, stick with an aluminum receiver and consider skeletonized.

    Hopefully a dull knife with the words "DIY Bruce Jenner Kit".

    Are Saiga-12 selectors the same as standard AK?

    Saiga selector on top: Saiga selector on the left: AK selector: Saiga selector: I tried installing the Saiga selector in the WASR that the AK selector came from, and it was not blocking the trigger from moving. I could not attempt installing the AK selector in the Saiga 12 due to the guts being at Cobra's for some work. I hope this helps.
  9. Edit: I'd do it. Seems like it's worth it.
  10. So long as the barrel is pinned/welded at 18.5" measured from the inside on a closed bolt, and is 26" + overall, then it's no different than any other title 1 firearm. I don't see why the gunsmith would need a letter from the ATF to weld up some holes from a magwell.
  11. Happy birthday, sir.

    I guess I'm a little late to the party

    Well, if you can hold out for awhile, the Csspecs 20 gauge mags will probably be the best you'll find. http://stores.csspecs.com/saiga-20-gauge-10rd/ Oh, and welcome to the forum. Congrats on the new shotgun!

    alternative to arf.com?

    AR15armory.com. It's smaller, but an excellent group of people. Just for the record, I cannot tell you how many people have come to the Armory from AR15.com. They refer to it as "the other forum". Just do yourself a favor, though, if you do go to the Armory, don't talk bad about AR15.com, or other gun forums. It's against their rules.

    Finally did it

    Did you notch the bolt hold open lever?
