Re: Anything New and Cool in the Gun World?

It won't be cheap but according to some, it can come very close to rivaling an MP5. Building is almost always cheaper. The prices on pre-bilt AR-9's is stupid. PSA has had them pretty cheap $4xx. I paid more then that for just the 9mm upper I use to ha\/e . They also got the AK\/'s for a bit more. ...

Re: Need help for AR15 Take down pin

I've had tight pins before. Usually they loosen up after a while. I'd go out and just shoot a bunch :D

Re: New Member - Minneapolis, MN

Suppressors are awesome but pricey. Do a lot of research and then do some more. Read up on forming a trust and complying with the ATF regarding NFA items. Then do more research. Once you buy one, it's pretty much yours till you die so make sure you get the right one (s). See if you have a local rang...

Re: Anything New and Cool in the Gun World?

open for guidance on the other options... pull trigger, go bang! Have you explored building an AR-9? Strange, but the AR-thing hasn't grabbed me yet. Everybody tells me I will catch the fever, and I am missing out, etc., but I am kind of blah on it...other options seem to have a greater draw. I do ...

Re: Anything New and Cool in the Gun World?

@Janik if you want to do a 10/22 TD, I highly recommend finding one that already has the Magpul X-22 Backpacker stock with it. It will save you a few bucks versus buying it later. It's a fantastic setup then as it locks together and is really compact. I know I posted this a while back but I set thi...

Re: Anything New and Cool in the Gun World?

Actually started planning a "matched set" AR build in 9mm, 5.56 and 300BLK. Going to start with the 9mm and use the CMMG Radial Delayed Blowback system. This is supposedly a fantastic system. From there I'll build up the uppers for the other two. Ideally, all three uppers will run on the same lower ...

Re: Hello from Central Kalifornia

I'm curious. I didn't think that Caniks were on the Commifornia approved gun list. I have to move to the bay area for 6 months for work. I figured I'd do some trigger jobs when I was bored. So I can bring them along? Oh, welcome by he way :) Canik offers 10 round versions, I wonder if those are CA ...

Re: Why you should stay out of NY 3.5 year sentence for having 4 guns in vehicle

Similar to the "Automatic clip thingy".... Well M16 and AR15 are gas operated (DGI or gas-piston), so is blowback technically speaking...lol However, I actually have no clue how the 9mm chambered scary black guns operate. Don't have one. Now I must use my google-fu to investigate. Inquiring minds w...

Re: Why you should stay out of NY 3.5 year sentence for having 4 guns in vehicle

"gas-powered submachine gun" A Wha?!?!?! The ignorance is amazing. While I guess it's possible that it is a gas-operated PCC, which I doubt, it most definitely isn't gas powered. After all, where is the gas tank and spark plug? As far as being a submachine gun, well, if it truly functions as an auto...

Re: New Additions

Yep, that can definitely be an issue when firing but I know it isn't the issue I'm having at least. Playing around a little more today, I found that 10rd mags I recently got with my DA have enough spring power to actuate the release every time. All my other mags don't. The release is just really "st...

Re: New Additions

I just recently got an elite combat as well (in addition to just joining this forum). I had it out to the range the other day for the 1st time and I also noticed the slide does not stay open on an empty magazine. I was using factory ammo (Federal Am. Eagle 124 gr FMJ) rather than handloads, so it w...

Re: Second Canik

Yeah, I'm confused by the Patriot Brown as well. I thought the whole point of the One series was to be cheaper and thus they were all black. I can't find anything searching the intergoogle for a SF One in brown.
