Thanks for the advice guys.
Thats why i use hoppes if mine werent fired a lot. But its cheaper to use hot soapy water.

The easiest way to bring your group down: get some of that shrinkable wire insulation, slip it down through the hole in the frount sight shroud,hit it with a bic lighter, cut it about an eigth inch above the post and try it. trim as necessary. Mine ended up about 1/16th. It holds up well, takes less than a minute and is easily replaced.

They were extremely busy when I ordered mine, so that's believable. They will probably have more in stock within a few months. I would just try someone else. Buds is a good place to get guns.

Copes also has a spam can (440 rounds) for about $90 shipped. Thats what I got. Nothing puts a smile on you face faster than a 25 pound box of ammo. Well, other than a new gun.

They also sell a can opener made for spam cans, I would get it. It made opening the can reletively easy.

Aim surplus just got a new shipment of 91/30s about a week ago. As for the can opener, I have one, I think a hatchet and a hammer works better. Just be careful.

The last can I got from Aim Surplus was less than $90 shipped to my door in 3 days.
