Re: My Chilean 1895

Yeah, this and the M96 vie for favorites. The small rings are really pleasant to shoot, and have what feels like a lot of old world craftsmanship.

Re: The Old Forum.

I hear that. I don't have loads developed for everything, but I have dies for everything but the cheap semi auto stuff. I like being a little of both shooter, and collector. I try and take care of everything, but don't do safe queens.

Brownell's Retro Rifles.

Ok ok. I'm probably drinking the AR-15/M16 kool aid a bit much... but I only just found out about these retro styled ARs. I don't care as much about the A1, or the X177E... but the prototype replica with trigger type charging handle/ brown furniture, and the 601 are really cool. The 601 really hits ...

Re: Beginning a Second Build.

Right. If I'm gonna do a 5.56 rifle, it's gonna be a rifle. Lol. If I do an A2, or A3 style, I'm gonna do 20" All the Grendel stuff I see is 18", or 20" with stainless barrels... which is cool, but yeah, they're all free float, precision like uppers. It's all cool stuff though. Lol. Just picked up m...

Re: Beginning a Second Build.

Ordered an A2 stock kit. That was hard to find in stock anywhere. Lol. Ended up getting one from KAK. I used their tube kit with my pistol build, and it has been good. I wanted to do a fixed stock over an adjustable carbine tube. I'll have to save a few bucks for the upper, which I'm thinking 18 or ...

Re: Beginning a Second Build.

Still haven't made up my mind on caliber, aside from not being a pistol caliber. Lol. Might just rock good old 5.56 because cheap. I got a Bushmaster LPK for it. Using an MOE trigger guard, and an MFT grip. That said, they aren't designed to go together, as there is a plastic lip on the grip that's ...

Beginning a Second Build.

So. I got the itch to put together another AR. I more or less expected this to happen, and my first new acquisition for 2019. Starting properly as someone who likes to tinker....a stripped lower. When I built my pistol, I started there, and while not exactly difficult, was fun, and rewarding. This t...

Re: My AR Pistol

After shooting this guy a bit, I really want to upgrade sights, put a hybrid comp/hider on it, and possibly get an entry level dot optic. A2 hider works, but the tech has advanced since then. Otherwise it's an absolute riot to shoot.

Re: They Shall Not Grow Old

I've been wanting to see this. Heard about about it some time ago. I ordered a copy, since the YouTube price, and blu ray price were the same.

Holster for Mak and PA63.

Hey all,
Found a Bianchi #5 "Black Widow" holster. Used. Cheap enough. It fits the PA63, with a little looseness... but the snaps retain the pistol ok. It fits the Makarov fantastic.
So there's an option for those who own either.
