I wash my boresnakes in a pail with some TSP and hot water. No doubt any good strong detergent would do the trick. I'm just not that wild about putting nasty lead and chemical laden things in our...

Feeding issues ?

You mean you had one in active duty in the military that wouldn't feed good? And they didn't fix it for you?

Maybe this is just my perception, but I think a lot of the current issues with...

M12 Ammo cost

Aguila can be had for $17 for 50 rounds. Not that much worse price wise than .223.

I have a Stag 3, a Mini-14, and an M1 Carbine which I find to be very enjoyable to shoot.

With expanding bullets, should be a great defensive weapon. Low recoil and muzzle blast, delivering ~150% of the energy of a maximum load .357 mag round.

IAI Carbine

Agree with you 100% about many of the Repro carbines. All kinds of junk was passed off by the unscrupulous. The IAI carbines are strict M1 pattern carbines and the parts were, all GI or later...
