    Polishing Question

    Follow Fuller's lead. You can safely work over the parts by hand with 1000 + grit sand paper, impossible to harm the parts with that method. It's slow as Hell, but if you're nervous about screwing something up that's how I'd do it. You can save some time using a dremel on the worse of the casting lines and lumps, but 1000 grit at the end to smooth it out is where you're heading.
  2. Just got my Magpul MOE Ak stock, sling receptacle, and paraclip adapter installed so I could get my two point sling mounted back up. Now, I just need to do a little sewing and get the sling shortened up a little bit so it rides where I want it at the shortest setting. Makes it easy to set and forget, and I can let it out pretty quickly for single point use.
  3. Put the MOE stock on Wednesday, going to the range tomorrow morning to run it through it's paces.

    Picture Post,lets see your 7.62x39

    Probably done with mods. Added an Ultimak and TRS-25, and Magpul MOE stock with a 1/2" cheek riser.
  5. While I agree he'd certainly like to, I don't believe he can at this stage. He's setting the stage for a later radical to complete his work. That said, if it ever comes to a house by house gun grab, god speed gentlemen and I'll see you on the other side.
  6. I won't even entertain an argument that brings up the murder/gun violence rates in this country. I don't have to. I'm not required to justify my right to bear arms, that right is God given and protected under the US Constitution. Every time some liberal starts tossing around statistics, I drag them like a puppy that shit on my carpet back to the 2nd Amendment and tell them to read it slowly and out loud till they get it through their thick skulls. Bear arms, shall not be infringed, get over it.
  7. Her words echo mine. If you don't want to carry, don't. I want to. Leave me the Hell alone. My rights are not subject to your feelings and hysteria surrounding firearms.
  8. A case of ammo, the gift that keeps on giving. Next month, I'm putting AK stuff on hold to get my 308 bolt action setup and reloading components for match ammo. Then, probably back to hoarding ammo.

    Doesn't matter, only difference I'm aware of is a few extra notches. I'm not shooting 300+ with a Saiga. I have a 308 bolt action for that.
  10. dear God no, I've gained some weight since retiring 22 years ago but that's not even me today I use to look like a Greek God, Now I look like a god damn Greek. Most of us pack on some pounds when we get out. I always chuckle when I hear someone start talking shit saying "You don't look like you were in the military." Back then, I was 17-23, 5'11" 190 pounds. Nowadays, I'm 32, 230 pounds, still with the close cut hair but grown a beard. I'm not in the same shape I was when I was in the military, but still a die hard patriot. I will be till the day I die. People lose sight of what makes veterans who they are. It isn't trim waist lines and muscles, it's the courage and will to do whatever it takes to win. It's the mentality and conviction to lay your ass on the line for your country and your brothers. Regardless of where our lives take us after we get out, that part of us never changes.
  11. Being a vet, stolen valor just pisses me off. Especially in light of the EXTREMELY small portion of my generation that served, and how fiercely patriotic I am, I have incredible disdain for people that lacked the courage to serve but want the respect for having done so. I'm fortunate to have never encountered an individual as such, but can't imagine it ending well. That's just me. It's a point of pride that I served, and I have nothing but respect and admiration for men and women that served, but if you haven't laced up those boots and wrote that blank check you don't deserve to call yourself a veteran.

    Krebs peep sight tightened my shot groups very noticeably. Not cheap, but just as solid as the original.

    Looks nice! What sling are you using BTW? Ultimate Arms Gear multi point. Can convert between single point and a two point. 6" and 2" rails added, Magpul AFG2 installed, robbed the Surefire off my 1911 till I get a Streamlight for this rifle. I like it. The AFG breaks up the weird curve of the HG nicely. Random question, but do you happen to know how much your phoenix tech stock weighs? Thanks! It's an easy mod, and there is a big chunk of metal right there so you even shave a hair of weight. No idea the weight. Purely subjective, no more than the factory Saiga buttstock. It is all hollow composite.
