Those are all good mounts. Leupold, Burris and Nikon make decent mounts for the AR's that are more in the $100 range. Some Leupold models are more than that ( the Mark 6 is Much more), the Mark 2's...

Cardiac, the Leupold Mark AR 1.5-4x is nice for the money, a lot less than your VX6 was. Green Fire dot instead of red. I really like the SPR reticle on mine, I wish they offered it on more of their...

I have not seen many AR's that have a lot of play between the upper and lower. The DPMS that I got recently (.308) and my friend's (5.56mm) are very tight, you almost need a plastic punch to get the...

For $1200 you could get both. I have a Kimber (CDP) and love it, but also have a RIA (Rock Island) 1911. It was a bit under $600 and came with two barrels, 9mm and .22 TCM. The TCM is a screamer,...

Even a $480 DPMS Oracle has forged receivers. There are a lot of AR snobs that will tell you that you have to buy a Daniel Defense, LMT, etc. I doubt any of us will have to repel at assault in...

Mine is also a 4 inch (Kimber CDP Pro) and it does have a much stiffer spring than a stock 5 inch. It also has a bull barrel that is bushingless. I think the heavier spring and bull barrel helps...

Sounds like you are due for a new recoil spring anyway, but the problem might well be extractor tension. I got a Weigand kit with a brass tab that you slip under the extractor, and a tool that adds...

The Tenifer process goes way down into the pores of the metal, so just blast as normal to prep. One of the guns I did was a G19 that the previous owner had polished the slide to look like nickel. He...

T-C Contender barrels, .17 Remington and 7x30 Waters

I got these in a trade about ten years ago thinking I'd pick up a Contender frame. I'd just like to sell them now. Very good shape, barrels are 21" long, and chambered for .17 Remington, and 7-30...

It's great stuff, I've done a half dozen firearms in Cerakote, and have a half dozen more I want to do this summer. A friend and I are looking into our own media blasting set up so we don't have to...

I have used the Aimpoint Pro and the Micro, Burris Fastfire III ( and EoTech's) and it seems to me, the smaller micro dots give more "situational awareness" of what's going on around the optic, the...

Stands to reason. Seems a ring around the firing pin hole would not be a good thing for any firearm. I wonder why this is more prevalent with Mini's ? A QC issue ?

I'm not sure if Ruger made any changes to the new models to handle Berdan primed ammo better. Maybe someone that has a new one will come along to comment.

If you reload the 7.62x39 has a bit more punch than the .300 BO. If you don't reload, the ammo for the .300 BO is showing up at a lot more stores. Rock River makes an AR that takes AK mags. But...

My Mini-30

This started out about 6 weeks ago as a stock 189 series Mini-30. I ordered a new Mini-14 stock for it and opened up the stock reinforcement area to fit the fatter 7.62x39 magazine. Did a trigger...

As stalkingbear said, you should look into scopes made specifically for rimfires, as the parallax is set to a shorter range, 50 yards instead of 100 for centerfire rifles. Or buy a scope with an...

What make you think those that like to discuss SHTF weapons aren't also stocking up on extra meals, bottles of water and medical supplies ?
