80% lowers

Not gonna try to talk you out of it-- but how about buying something a little off the beaten path? Since you have a Dick's handy, you could get one of those Henry collapsible .22LR rifles, the kind...

Any interest for some 6.5 Grendel Barrels?

I already have an AR15 in 6.5 Grendel--and I highly recommend it. This is one of the calibers that works with an unmodified lower-- so you can set up a Grendel upper assembly, buy a magazine for...

Here's a suggestion that's a little out in left field but it might fit the bill for low volume hunting and high-volume range time: how's about an AR15 chambered for one of the 6.5mm rounds (Grendel...

An old Italian-made, single-shot, break-action 16-ga shotgun that I inherited from my great granddad when I was about 10. Then a Marlin lever-action 22. Nothing else for about 20 years, then I got...

There aren't more of them. The proportion of homosexuals has held steady at 3 to 6 percent (depending on how it's defined--it's actually a gradient not a yes/no) for as long as the research has been...

I agree, you probably won't notice much difference. Just a though though, if you're still set on an upgrade--it's not urgent, so wait for a sale and get a boron nitride coated BCG--that's a...

The lack of experience with cars and tools is easy: for at least the last 10 years no kids, male or female, have had any exposure in school. Any of us complainers had shop in school (I had wood,...

Agreed. A good Mosin is very accurate (just ask all those dead Germans in Leningrad). But it's a crap shoot unless you have a chance to pick through a crate. Beware of counterbored muzzles.

Agreed about the M44, they are a ton of fun to shoot: LOUD, lots of recoil, and 2 feet of flame out the front.

But for SHTF, the SKS wins--a 10-shot semi beats a 5-shot bolt action.

Cheaper Than Dirt does have outrageous shipping costs, but they make up for it with ridiculously high markups.

Seriously, I will never order from them after their business practices during the...

The quad rail and rail covers add a lot of weight and make for a very bulky handhold. You might consider replacing it with a Magpul MOE or similar. It also helps avoid the temptation to add a bunch...

Agreed, I was shocked at what a good value mine was, a Romanian TTC from J&G Sales. Like a 1911 but smaller and lighter; the 7.62x25 is a very hot round. Ammo getting hard to find though.

Sorry, hit send by mistake.

I'm leaning toward 6.5 Grendel because I want something with more punch at long range. Now I just have to find a place that has some in stock!
Thanks again.

I have a couple of spare lower receivers and would like to mate one with an upper assembly of a different caliber. Can anyone tell me which other calibers will work with a standard .223 receiver? I...
