Posted in thread: need ideas to get XDM sights out on 08-18-2013 at 10:29 AM
I talked with B&J Machine. They are sending me a replacement tool tip free of charge. They also
said that a steel punch is often the only way to get XD sights out. Once the factory sight has
Posted in thread: revolver for wife, concealed carry on 08-18-2013 at 04:45 AM
My wife carries a Taurus revolver in 38 special. I don't remember the model but it is a nice
little short barreled perfect for her handgun. Cost just over $200.
Posted in thread: dpms upgrade question on 08-18-2013 at 04:35 AM
I have a Rock River NM upper on a DPMS lower. I replaced the trigger with a Jewel trigger and
set the pull to 4 lbs. I use this in NRA high power competition and can easily shoot 1 MOA with
it. I also...

Resorted to grinding an old steel punch to just fit into the dovetail and put the slide into a

Bought some night sights for my XDM. I have a B&J Machine P500 sight tool and have used it

interchangeable grip piec...

mounted accessories. It came with a side folding stock or I might have added some after market
Posted in thread: amd 65 trigger on 07-05-2013 at 03:54 PM
I have an AND 65 AK variant. It came with a trigger stamped G2 on the side. I assume it is a
Tapco G2 trigger but the pull is a bit heavy and it feels kind of gritty. Is this how it is
supposed to fee...

I used to have a sigpro in 357 Sig but sold it for no good reason. It is basically a 9mm at
higher velocities so your over penetration concern is valid. If you use bullets that expand
readily it will ...

I've built a couple of bolt actions on Mauser actions and I own and shoot a rock river AR.
Thinking about trying my hand at building one. Any good books you'd recommend or is that even
