  1. Hello all! To start with, I want to make clear that this is not an advertisement. This is an attempt to gauge levels of interest from people, to see if this is something worth further pursuing. In fact, these exact grips are not even currently for sale anywhere. Secondly, I want to point out that, while the firearms pictured belong to me, I am not the creator of these grips. All credit for that goes to a friend of mine, while he was visiting his home country (Costa Rica), using two grips which I had supplied him with before having left, to use as templates while there.
  2. 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.
  3. 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 r
  4. 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.
  5. 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
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. Hopefully a dull knife with the words "DIY Bruce Jenner Kit".
  9. 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.
  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. 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!
  12. 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.
  13. Did you notch the bolt hold open lever?
  14. Go from the muzzle end. Insert a bore brush, being careful not to damage the crown, scrub a few times back and forth (obviously with some solvent in there), never letting the brush exit the muzzle completely (helps to prevent the brush from nicking the crown). Next, use a chamber brush on one of those flexible "Chamber Maid's" (allows a decent chamber cleaning without bending a cleaning rod). Then, reinsert the cleaning rod, now with a "patch puller" attachment until the attachment is easily accessible from inside the receiver. Thread a cleaning patch through the eyelet of the patch puller, an
  15. The bolt hold open is located just to the right of the trigger. Pull the charging handle to the rear, push up on the bolt hold open lever, and release the charging handle while maintaining upward pressure on the bolt hold open lever. Your bolt will now be held rearward and will make seating a magazine a bit easier. As far as last round bolt hold open, I've seen it done, but it requires a bit of modification. I'm sure a Google search on the subject would yield some results.
  16. Fast payment and great communication. Thank you again, Spacehog!
  17. Best of wishes to you on your birthday, sir. Have a good one.
  18. Well guys, I guess I lied. I could really use the money... Price dropped to $950.00. Price still includes cost of shipping. You KNOW it's a good deal! If you don't want it, tell your friends about it! One thing I failed to mention in the first post, however, is that I'm not really interested in piecing out any part of this. Sorry!
  19. Interesting... I do not care for the charging handle location, but aside from that, I could see it being fun.
  20. Unfortunately, it seems like nobody has them for sale anymore unless you'd like a white one. Legionusa has them in stock if you do. https://www.legionusa.com/white-lower-handguard.html Otherwise, your best bet may be to post a "WTB" ad on the "Firearm Parts & Accessories" section of this site. Nice fourwheeler.
