    This is the tacked 308 picture thread.

    What if?

    i did, but nothing i found was conclusive enough to determine whether it was a feasible mod. Someone did it with some JB weld, and it didnt look like it was going to be reliable.

    SLINGDOM

    I keep it one length for carry and address. I unsling from the carry position, and the sling hangs from both mounting points. Then plant my elbow about halfway on the inside of the sling, and wrap my forearm around the sling as my hand makes its way to the foregrip. Kinda hard to explain, but I hope you get what I mean. It basically gives tension between my elbow and buttstock so the rifle 'locks' in position when I seat the stock against my shoulder. This was really useful when I used to shoot for my ROTC rifle team back in the day. Those Anschutz 54's got pretty heavy when fully equipped (about 17-18 lbs), and the sling really helped to keep things steady when shooting from a standing position. The shooting jacket was key too.

    SLINGDOM

    I use an end-to-end sling like Bob described in his first reply. It's nice for carrying rifles around, and just quickly wrap a forearm around it to help steady your stance when an opportunity arises.

    It's so easy to be a badass on the internet, isn't it? especially trolling first-posters.

    saiga stuff

    Nice! that's a start
  12. Although I've been only a member for a little while, the amount of info I've gotten from these forums and its experts has been priceless. That being said, I would proudly wear a 'Team Saiga' or 'Tromix' shirt or cap. Problem is, they're nowhere to be found. I'm sure there are many on this forum that share this sentiment, and items like these would fly off the virtual shelves. Even though I dont have any of the shotgun Saigas (yet), I'd wear a 'Saiga-12.com' shirt or cap, or strike fear into the hearts of 3-gun competitors with a 'Tromix Lead Delivery Systems' jacket or rifle sling. Hell, even a bumper sticker that I can plaster on my gun carry case! So how about it guys?
  13. Just finished watching an episode of Modern Marvels on the History Channel about shotguns. It'll probably be shown again in 2 hours, as per their usual programming pattern. There was a scene that showed some military personnel firing Saiga shotguns. It looked like they had the non-sporterized versions though. Maybe that's why they're so hard to come by these days.

    "Breaking in" a rifle ?

    A few weeks ago at the range, I saw someone with an AR-10 running a cleaning patch through the barrel every 2nd mag or so (10-rounders here in NY). I thought he was just being neurotic about cleaning the rifle, but as we got to talking about our guns, he said that he was 'breaking in the barrel' since this was the first time he had fired it since he bought it. I told him that I didnt do any type of 'breaking-in' when I first fired my S308, and had since shot 500+ rounds through it at that point. He really didnt know what effects there might be by breaking it in versus not, just that he felt better about doing it. He also mentioned that his barrel wasn't chrome-lined for the sake of accuracy, and that's also why he was doing what he did. Do you guys do anything special to 'break in' your rifles? Is it neccesary to have done it when I first shot my gun?
