Call up a blueprint or schematic on line and it's easy to follow along for the build of your first lower.

Congrats on the set forward and the operation of the new A2, My Friend.

After years away from the platform, I decided that the AK was just fine.

Getting back into it, the AK now feels like junk.

It's all really J.D.'s fault.

He's like a meth dealer sitting in his blacked out van right outside of a methadone clinic with a sign on the side that says "free candy"

The only downside is I purchased my first at Gander Mountain, for $20. I found them at the gun show for $14.

So respect out to P Mags.

Big respect to ROG Tactical.

Respect to CMMG.

I will never again in life buy anything from Gander Mountain. This is the last in a long line of issues I've had with the place.



Thank you for the respect...and business! let me know if I can assist with anything.

I am not, I repeat, NOT suspending this build. Two is better than one.

So updates....

DPMS AP4. I'll be doing a review shortly, but I can say right now that I'm pleased with the purchase.

We all know it's easier to criticize than to praise.

If a company does right by me, I like to let everybody know.

If you're doing a build, check out X-mark, good people.

I don't like plastic, especially on a field ready weapon, and these were no different.

I'll send you a couple to try. You like them, you keep them and buy me replacements. You hate them, you send them back and you are out nothing.

I'm not much of a plastic person either (prefer wood and steel ), but I ordered some pmags, and they seem like really good quality mags. (I haven't been able to use them yet, but they feel like they are well made)

I think someone here said that while overseas, they've seen both a regular metal mag, and a pmag get run over by a truck. The regular mag was crushed. The pmag was just fine, and was then used with complete success.

They're also cheap. I bought 2 from Botach Tactical for $22 shipped with a coupon I found online.

I do want to try out the kind you suggested though. When I finsh my build, I'll be sure to order one to try.

Just watch the video and tell me you still think plastic over heat treated steel is a good idea.

I saw that video prove that spring steel beats aluminum. It never say anything about plastic.

Trust me, I am not saying that pmags are better than Cammengas. I don't have the knowledge, or the experience to make that claim. I just know pmags are cheap and reliable, so I will always have a few. I will also make sure to keep a few Cammengas too. They are badass mags! You sold me on them.

True, but what do you think the Pmags would do in those tests? The sledgehammer? The shotgun?

Ha ha, My Ninja! I figured if you saw the product you would come around.
