  5. GUYS, SOMEWHERE THERE'S A LAMP POST WITH HOLDERS NAME ON IT.......... I REALLY WISH THE NEWS MEDIA WOULD QUIT REFERRING TO THIS AS A "BUNGLED OPERATION". THIS OP WORKED, EXACTLY AS INTENDED, IE, SHIP UNACCOUNTABLE GUNS TO THE CARTELS, WHO WOULD THEN USE THEM IN MURDERS, ETC., AND WHEN RECOVERED AT CRIME SCENES, AFTER HAVING BEEN INTENTIONALLY DROPPED (TO PROVE THE U.S. CONNECTION, WHEN THE SERIAL NUMBERS WERE RUN), THE MUTUALLY CORRUPT REGIMES IN MEXICO AND THE U.S. (READ: 'TANG AND HOLDER), WOULD LIE ABOUT THE NUMBERS OF U.S. GUNS RECOVERED, BY SEVERAL ORDERS OF MAGNITUDE, THEREBY GIVING THE APPEARANCE THAT VIRTUALLY ALL OF THESE ILLEGAL GUNS WERE POURING IN FROM THE US. THIS WAS THE FURTHEREST THING FROM THE TRUTH, AS THE VAST, VAST MAJORITY OF THE ILLEGAL GUNS IN MEXICO CAME FROM DESERTING MEXICAN SOLDIERS, WERE SOLD DIRECTLY TO THE CARTELS BY CORRUPT MEXICAN ARMY OFFICERS, OR CAME IN FROM OVERSEAS, IE, CHINA, RUSSIA, NORTH KOREA, VIETNAM, IRAN, ETC., ETC., ETC. THE ULTIMATE GOAL HERE, WAS TO USE THESE CONFLATED FIGURES OF GUNS RECOVERED, TO STAMPEDE THE U.S. POPULATION TO PRESSURE CONGRESS FOR MORE ANTI-GUN LAWS, AND FURTHER DESTRUCTION OF THE SECOND AMENDMENT. WHEN AGENT BRIAN TERRY WAS MURDERED WITH ONE OF THESE 'TANG-HOLDER GUNS, AND THEN THE ATF STONEWALLED THE CONGRESS, LIED, OBFUSCATED, AND DISSEMBLED, IN SPITE OF CONTRARY EVIDENCE/TESTIMONY FROM ATF WHISTLEBLOWERS, THEIR CAREFULLY CRAFTED HOUSE OF CARDS AND LIES BEGAN TO CRUMBLE. IT WOULD APPEAR THAT JUSTICE IS FINALLY IMMINENT, HOWEVER, LOOK FOR THE REGIME TO FIGHT THIS RULING TO THE BITTER END, LIKE A VAMPIRE WOULD RESIST THE STAKE! JUS' SAYIN'..........

  6. GUYS, BEEN WAITIN' ON THESE FOR 2+ YRS........... THESE WILL FIT OUR SGL AK'S, OR ANY WITH THE 24X1.5 THREAD, THAT HAS THE '74 TYPE MUZZLE BRAKE. I HAVE ONE ON A 14X1LH MILLED POLISH AK, AND IT'S THE EQUIVELENT OF THE FSC-47 IN RECOIL CONTROL. FLASH IS NOT BAD, BUT NOT QUITE AS SMALL AS THE FSC........... I WOULD GO WITH AN FSC-47 FOR THE SGL'S, BUT PRIMARY WEAPONS WON'T GET THEIR COLLECTIVE HEADS OUTA THEIR ASSES, AND MAKE IT IN 24X1.5RH, IN SPITE OF SEVERAL PLEAS FROM ME OVER THE LAST TWO YEARS.

  9. GUYS, WELL STUPID ME.......................BEING HALF-BLIND, WHEN I FIRST LOOKED THIS MICRO C-39 OVER, AND LOOKED UP IN THE HOLE IN THE FOREND, I SAW WHAT I THOUGHT WAS RIVET. I THOUGHT AT THE TIME "WELL THAT WAS STUPID"....... AS WITH THE OLD SAYING ABOUT POINTING OUT SOMEONE ELSES FOIBLES, DON'T FORGET THAT THREE FINGERS ARE POINTING BACK AT YOU..... ANYWAY.......I'M WORKING ON THIS THING LAST NIGHT, AND WAS WEARING A MAGNIFIED OPTIVISOR, TO BETTER SEE WHAT I WAS DOING, AND HAPPENED TO GLANCE UP IN THAT HOLE AGAIN. I WAS LIKE "WHAT-THE-FUCK", AND SHINED MY FLASHLIGHT DOWNHOLE. SURE AS HELL, WHAT I HAD ORIGINALLY THOUGHT WAS JUST A PUNCHMARK, FROM WHATEVER TOOL WAS USED TO SET THE RIVET, WAS ACTUALLY THE RECEPTICLE OF AN ALLEN-HEAD BOLT. DIDN'T TAKE BUT A MINUTE TO GET THE RIGHT-SIZED ALLEN BIT IN THE OLD CHAPMAN SCREWDRIVER HANDLE, AND BACK IT OUT. ANOTHER COUPLE OF MINUTES TO FIGGER THAT THE FOREND HAS TO COME OFF STRAIGHT FORWARD, BUT FIRST THE VORTEX FLASH SUPRESSOR (OR WHATEVER MUZZLE DEVICE YOU'RE USING) HAS TO COME OFF. MY FOREND WAS SUFFICIENTLY TIGHT, THAT I GOT OUT THE OL' MK-1 KALASHNIKOV ADJUSTMENT TOOL (A 3LB RUBBER MALLET) AND BY GENTLY TAPPING ON THE REAR OF THE WOODEN HANDGUARD, OFF IT CAME. I ALSO NOTED THAT THERE ARE TWO SCREW HOLES THAT GO INTO THE BOTTOM OF THE FRONT SIGHT ASSEMBLY. THE FACTORY WOODEN HANDGUARD UTILIZES THE FRONT HOLE. NOW FOR THE $64K QUESTION: WHOM, IF ANYONE, MAKES A RAILED HANDGUARD, PREFERRABLY ALUMINUM, FOR THIS LITTLE BEAST? SEE PICS BELOW. JESS1344 HERE IT IS, WITH THE FOREND OFF. AS THE FOREND MUST COME OFF STRAIGHT FORWARD, YOU MUST REMOVE WHATEVER MUZZLE DEVICE YOU'RE RUNNING. A GENTLE TAPPING, IN THE AREA INDICATED, WITH THE MK. 1 KALASHNIKOV ADJUSTMENT TOOL, AND OFF IT COMES. THIS IS SOME OF THE STUFF I WAS DOING LAST NIGHT, PUTTING A BIT OF A RAMP INTO THE CHAMBER, SO THAT HOLLOW POINT AMMO, WON'T EITHER BEAT ITSELF HALF-CLOSED, OR COME TO A COMPLETE SCREECHING HALT ALTOGETHER. I HAVE A CENTURY AES10-B, THAT ABSOLUTELY REFUSED TO FEED HOLLOW POINTS, COMING TO A HALT AGAINST THE BREECH-FACE UNTIL I DID THIS TO IT. I REALLY, REALLY WISH THAT PEOPLE THAT BUILD THESE AK'S, OR MORE PROPERLY, THE FOLKS THAT MAKE THE BARRELS WOULD, WHILE THEY'RE DRILLING THE GAS PORTS, MAKING THE PIN CUTS, AND CUTTING THE EXTRACTOR CLEARANCE, TAKE ANOTHER TWO MINUTES AND CUT A SIMPLE RAMP AT THE CHAMBER MOUTH, AS WAS DONE ON MY SGL 21-76, FROM THE FACTORY, 'CAUSE IT'S REALLY A PAIN-IN-THE-ASS, ONCE THE BARREL'S INSTALLED.

  11. GUYS, I KNOW THIS HAS BEEN POSTED HERE BEFORE, BUT AS I RECALL, IT'S BURIED IN A THREAD SOMEWHERE. I SCANNED THE FIRST 10 PAGES OF GENERAL DISCUSSION AND DIDN'T FIND ANYTHING ON THIS THAT WAS OBVIOUS, SO I'M GOING TO POST THIS UNDER THIS SUBJECT SPECIFIC TITLE. I'D APPRECIATE IT IF THE MODS WOULD SEE FIT TO LEAVE IT UP IN THE GENERAL DISCUSSION THREAD, SO THOSE WITH AN INTEREST MAY MORE EASILY REFERENCE IT. I'VE OBSERVED SEVERAL PEOPLE ASKING ABOUT THIS IN THE RECENT PAST. YOU CAN PUT YOUR CURSOR ON THE LETTER, AND A BAR WILL COME UP THAT ALLOWS YOU TO ZOOM THE IMAGE, SO THAT WHEN YOU PRINT IT OFF IT'S ACTUALLY LARGE ENOUGH TO READ. I WOULD ALSO ADVISE LAMINATING IT, AND THE ORIGINAL ATF COVER LETTER, THAT COMES WITH THE BRACE, FOR LONGEVITY, AND HAVING A COPY OF EACH TO GO WITH EACH PISTOL EQUIPPED WITH THE "WRIST BRACE" MECHANISM. JUS' SAYIN'.......... JESS1344 http://www.guntrustlawyer.com/sb15.pdf
  12. GUYS, FINALLY HAD A CHANCE TO GET A SHORT-TIME AT THE RANGE WITH MY BUD'S MICRO C-39 CENTURION, THAT HE'S LEFT IN MY CARE TO ACCESSORIZE. THE ADD-ON'S THUS FAR ARE A VORTEX FLASH SUPRESSOR (TOOK THE FLASH FROM BEACH-BALL SIZE TO ABOUT HALF-WAY BETWEEN SOFTBALL AND SOCCER BALL SIZED, AND THAT'S WITH BARNAUL BROWN BEAR, WITH SOME 1985-ERA PMC FMJ, IT WAS JUST A PINK FURBALL. YAY VORTEX!) AN AIMPOINT H-1 1X RED DOT, AND CENTURY'S SB-47 "WRIST BRACE", ROUND OUT THE MODS THUS FAR. I MADE AN IMPROVEMENT TO THE SB-47 "WRIST BRACE", BY PLACING 7 BLACK (UV RESISTANT) TIE WRAPS ON THE TUBE ASSEMBLY, THEREBY SPACING THE "BRACE" ITSELF FURTHER TO THE REAR, ON THE TUBE, BY 1 7/16". THIS SERVES TO SPACE THE "BRACE" FURTHER UP ONES FOREARM, PROVIDING IMPROVED "LEVERAGE", IF YOU WILL, TO SWINGING THIS HEFTY LITTLE MILLED RECEIVER BEAST. THE OTHER ADVANTAGE THIS TIE WRAP TREATMENT PROVIDES, IS THAT IF ONE SHOULD CHOOSE TO FIRE THIS FROM THE SHOULDER, IT GIVES INCREASED "EYE RELIEF", AND PREVENTS THE REAR OF THE SPRING GUIDE/RECEIVER COVER FROM BINKING YOU ON THE END OF ONES NOSE/CHEEKBONE HOUSING. OTHER ACCESSORIES IN THE UPS/USPS PIPELINE ARE A L.I.N.C.H. TOP COVER, A HOGUE GRIP, AN ECHO93 SLING PLATE (A V-3), A KREBS SAFETY, AND A SPECIALLY SHORTENED ARMAGEDDON GEAR BUNGEE SLING IN MULTI-CAM. IT WAS A BIT LATE, BY THE TIME I GOT TO THE RANGE, AND BY THE TIME I GOT A STARTING ZERO AT 15YDS, AND MOVED TO 50YDS, THE LIGHT WAS FADING. AFTER "WALKING IT IN" ON ONE TARGET AT 50YDS, I ILLUMINATED THE SECOND AND THIRD TARGETS WITH THE KLARUS 1200 LUMEN "DOUBLE-DONG", PROPPED UP ON A BOX OF TULA AMMO. BY THE TIME I FIRED THE LAST 5 ROUND GROUP, PICTURED BELOW, IT WAS 8:50PM LOCAL TIME, AND FULL DARK. JESS1344 A 3 1/8" X 3.0" GROUP, WITH AN UNCALLED FLIER IN THE 7-RING AT 1:00 O'CLOCK. I'LL BLAME IT ON THE BARNAUL AMMO'S QC. THE TIE WRAP TREATMENT TO THE TUBE. A FURTHER IMPROVEMENT TO THE WRIST BRACE IS TO FOLD THE LABI......ER-AH, FLAPS IN ON THEMSELVES, AND USE THE EXISTING FACTORY STRAPS TO HOLD THEM IN PLACE. THIS FORMS A MUCH FIRMER SURFACE TO PLACE IN ONES SHOULDER, SHOULD ONE CHOOSE TO SHOULDER-FIRE THIS. THE LITTLE BRUTE, AS CURRENTLY CONFIGURED, AND EAGERLY AWAITING FURTHER ACCESSORIZING.

  22. DARTH, CAN YOU CHECK THE GAS PORTS ON YOUR SIG556R, WHEN YOU HAVE THE CHANCE, AND SEE IF THEY BOTH APPEAR TO BE THE SAME SIZE? WHEN I WAS DOING AN INFORMATION RECON ON BOTH THE 556 AND THE 556R, PRIOR TO BUYING MY 556R, I CAME ACROSS SOMETHING INTERESTING. IT SEEMS AS THOUGH A NUMBER OF THE STRAIGHT 556 (CAL.) OWNERS HAVE OBSERVED THAT THEIR GAS PORTS ARE REVERSED, IE, THE BIG ONE IS POSITIONED WHERE THE SMALL ONE SHOULD BE, AND VICE-VERSA. OBVIOUSLY, IF NOT NOTICED, AND THE GUN IS RUN ON WIDE OPEN THROTTLE, UNKNOWINGLY, DAMAGE COULD WELL RESULT TO COMPONENTS OF THE RECIPROCATING MASS, IN THE LONG TERM. I JUST GOT MY "R" OUT OF WALMARTS LAYAWAY JAIL YESTERDAY, AND THE FIRST THING I DID, WHEN I GOT IT HOME, WAS TO PULL THE GAS PLUG AND INSPECT THE PORTS. TO MY MK-1 EYEBALL, THEY APPEAR TO BE THE SAME SIZE. I DON'T HAVE ANYTHING AROUND HERE TO MEASURE THE PORTS, NOR DO I KNOW WHAT SIZE THEY'RE SUPPOSED TO BE. THAT ALSO SEEMED TO BE AN ISSUE WITH SOME OF THE 556CAL. GUNS, IE, VARYING PORT SIZES, ACROSS A RANGE OF GUNS. I HAVE A TXT MSG IN TO A MACHINIST BUD, TO SEE IF HE HAS ANYTHING TO MEASURE THE DIAMETER OF SMALL HOLES, AND AM AWAITING A RESPONSE.

  24. Lawyers’ comments raise troubling questions about ATF and NFA collector’s group gun Rights Gun Control ATF ATF David CodreaGun Rights Examiner Subscribe December 10, 2013 Making its filing under the wire for the December 9 deadline, the Firearms Industry Consulting Group submitted its comments Monday responding to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives' proposed rulemaking change ATF-41P, regarding “Machine Guns, Destructive Devices and Certain Other Firearms; Background Checks for Responsible Persons of a Corporation, Trust or Other Legal Entity With Respect to Making or Transferring a Firearm.” The FICG comments raise serious questions about both ATF’s compliance with established rules and the law, as well as about the Bureau’s relationship with leaders of the National Firearms Act Trade and Collectors Association, which filed the petition ATF says prompted the rulemaking change proposal in the first place. The proposed changes resulted in 9,230 comments which can be viewed on the Regulations.gov website. These changes, discussed in a series of Gun Rights Examiner reports since ATF first announced its proposal in August, would affect the way NFA gun trusts, legal entities through which NFA firearms can lawfully be owned, are established. “With exhibits, [the FICG submission] is over 500 pages,” attorney Joshua Prince told readers of the Prince Law Offices, P.C. blog. “While our Comment may seem massive to some, with funding, a thorough Comment with evidentiary support, including expert affidavits, reports, and analysis, would have likely been almost double in size. “Nevertheless, ATF’s failure to comply with the Administrative Procedure Act in a number of ways will allow for judicial review, if ATF decides to move forward with promulgating any final rule,” Prince predicts. Problems with ATF’s handling of the notice and comment process are immediately raised in FICG’s extensively researched document. For starters, ATF is criticized for “fail[ing] to make available the underlying studies and other information upon which it purportedly relied in formulating its proposed rule” despite specific requests that the Bureau ignored. “[ATF] failed to describe a single situation illustrating the problem it purports to address,” FICG noted. “The entire rulemaking seems to rest on a false premise … [ATF] failed to identify a single example where a prohibited person gained actual possession of a NFA firearm by virtue of his relationship to a legal entity, let alone where a person gained possession of a NFA firearm due to his relationship to a legal entity and then used that firearm in the commission of any crime." Complaints on the way ATF has handled this rulemaking attempt are numerous and supported with exhibits throughout. Among FICG’s charges are that “ATF failed to provide any explanation for selecting its proposal over alternative measures ... under consideration,” and that “ATF provided conflicting information regarding implementation of any new rule, potentially providing false reassurance to persons interested in filing comments. ATF may have confused members of the public by posting unrelated material to the docket, including a statement that the comment period was closed. “ATF failed to include pertinent submissions in the docket,” the list of complaints goes on. “ATF failed to permit a 90-day comment period [due to ‘government shutdown’]. ATF's reading room was closed to any inspection and no newly-received comments were posted for review on www.regulations.gov. “Correspondence and telephone calls related to this proceeding went unanswered,” FICG elaborated. “ATF selectively delayed reviewing and posting comments received. “ATF has distorted the public comment process by apparently submitting hearsay information via proxies,” FICG charged. “ATF's prior lack of candor demonstrates a heightened need for procedural regularity.” Another accusation is one that longtime readers of this column will recall, dealing with what FICG calls “ATF’s ‘institutional perjury’ before the courts.” Gun Rights Examiner reported on the acting chief of ATF’s NFA branch admitting “when we testify in court, we testify that the database is 100 percent accurate. That's what we testify to, and we will always testify to that. As you probably well know, that may not be 100 percent true.” This column again relayed how a leading statistician, under oath before the 10th District Court, testified “the National Firearms Registration and Transfer Record (NFRTR) is insufficient for criminal proceedings,” causing ATF to fold on a major case rather than produce documents that would reveal their inner workings. FICG comments raise these points and more, citing “ATF's deception in Congressional oversight,” and flat-out accusing the Bureau of “misleading … the public.” Additionally, FICG asserts, “ATF's proposed rule raises important constitutional issues.” As examples, they demonstrate why "‘silencers’ or ‘suppressors’ are not properly subject to the NFA,” nor are “short-barreled shotguns, short-barreled rifles, and ‘Any Other Weapons,”’ all classifications requiring registration and transfer taxes. FICG also raises federalism concerns to demonstrate how ATF’s position intrudes on and undermines state laws, how ATF is exceeding its statutory authority assigned to it by Congress, and how it has misrepresented reasons given by Chief Law Enforcement Officers for not signing off on NFA forms (some simply don’t believe mere “civilians” should be allowed to own NFA firearms, and requirihng their signature ensures collectors in their jurisdictions will not be permitted to own NFA weapons). These are all serious and vital points, but there is another series of observations that begin on page 27 of the comment file that elaborate on concerns about the role of the NFATCA, and specifically the relationship of its president with ATF. “Docket entry ATF-2013-0001-0437 [view] is a public comment submitted by John Brown, apparently the very same John Brown who, as President of National Firearms Act Traders and Collectors Association (‘NFATCA’), submitted the petition to initiate a rulemaking on which ATF purports to base this proceeding,” FICG relates. “Repeated efforts to ascertain from Mr. Brown the details of the incidents as to which he asserts he has knowledge met refusals as he disavowed direct, personal knowledge stating only that as a result of ‘working inside ATF for over 10 years’ he knew things he ‘should never know.’" “t would thus appear that ATF is itself the source of this information,” FICG infers. “The planting of comments that merely repeat to ATF the very information ATF purports to have but refused to submit to public critique exacerbates the problem of ATF's refusal to provide underlying information. “Mr. Brown's connection to ATF extends beyond his acknowledgment that the information to which he alluded in his comment came from ATF itself,” FICG continues. “Indeed, as Richard Vasquez -- ATF's Chief of the Firearms Training Branch and previous Assistant and Acting Chief of the Firearms Technology Branch -- testified under oath only last year, Mr. Brown ‘interacted with ATF a lot,’ was a friend since at least 2006, had personally transferred two firearms to him, had transferred firearms to other ATF employees, visited ATF ‘to meet and become personal with a lot of the offices’ over a period of years, and provided him with information to pass along to ATF for ATF's use in a forfeiture proceeding. “Mr. Brown apparently went so far as to forward e-mails he had received from a FFL involved in litigation with ATF to ATF for ATF's use in the litigation against the FFL,” the FICG narrative continues. “Indeed, Mr. Brown was not surprised to be characterized as a ‘confidential source’ for Acting Chief Vasquez and ATF. “Despite having acquired three machineguns illegally manufactured by George D. Clark, Mr. Brown seems to be the only FFL in that situation that ATF never referred for prosecution,” FICG asserts. “In fact, ATF knowingly left Mr. Brown in possession of that contraband for six weeks and then promptly destroyed that evidence before the completion of prosecutions of other individuals in possession of Mr. Clark's machineguns. “In addition, during this same time period Mr. Brown, together with the attorney he reportedly hired to prepare the NFATCA petition upon which ATF now relies, hired two 30-year veterans of ATF who simultaneously worked together with ATF to draft the National Firearms Act Handbook. “ATF seeks to simultaneously prevent any investigation into the incidents to which it makes vague reference in the NPR while ‘planting’ comments in its own docket to give further credence to the incidents,” FICG observes. “The most benign characterization of the relationship between ATF and Mr. Brown (if not his other associates and NFATCA more broadly) would seem to be that ATF established an unauthorized "advisory committee" in violation of the Federal Advisory Committee Act … With respect to discussions relating to the proposal at issue here, either ATF is withholding records of consultations with Mr. Brown and NFATCA in violation of FOIA or ATF failed to create such records in violation of FACA. “ATF has made a mockery of this proceeding, engaging in numerous tactics designed to deny meaningful public participation,” FICG concludes. “As a result ATF cannot promulgate any final rule that hopes to survive judicial review without starting fresh. In doing so, ATF should consult with a broad cross-section of interests familiar with the laws governing trusts, estates, and business entities rather than a select few.” That is consistent with what Gun Rights Examiner concluded in its first report on the NFATCA petition being the catalyst for the proposed NFA rule change. “What’s apparent from these new revelations is that additional public scrutiny is required, including scrutiny of backroom deals being arranged without fanfare by special interest groups who petition for changes to regulations that will reach beyond their membership of collectors and investors,” this column maintained.
