    I was a Viet Nam era Marine who never was in VN, but qualified with the M-14 in OCS and later
    got to fam fire the AR just before I got out in '75, but my primary weapon was the F-4, and
    they didn't wa...

    Try Ely Tenex. I used it in my Anschutz target rifles. Mine loved it.

    I shot 5 rounds with my CZ 452 today. None of the bullets hit the target, which is 25 yards
    away. Two out of 5 bullets got stuck inside the barrel. I used boresnake to clear the barrel
    everytime I mad...

    I don't plan on buying more of the Russian ammo. How much does the spring cost and where could
    I find one?Brownell’s has the Wolff extra power hammer spring, p/n 969-000-100WB, for $4.99 or
    you can or...

    I'd believe so, the springs was already on the hammer when I opened the parts kit.My SIG 556R
    has a very heavy hammer spring to light off the very hard Russian primers. You might consider a
    heavier sp...

    Just a Mil spec Stag arms LPK triggerI would think that would provide sufficient energy to set
    off those hard primers. You could experiment with a heavier hammer spring. The easy way to do
    that is to ...

    The one thing I find is that my gun does NOT like the cheap steel cased ammo. I was at the
    range Saturday, and out of 20 rounds, 9 of the Tula 55gr FMJs went off. I took the bolt out to
    make sure it w...

    It is obvious someone is having too much fun.Since I posted in Feb, I have finished mine and it
    is super. Great way to turn money into smoke and noise.

  • Posted in thread: Finally got my AR to the range!! on 02-26-2015 at 01:05 PM
    And oh man was it fun!!! I didn't really know what to expect having only shot an AK and never
    an AR. I absolutely loved it and can't wait to start my second build next week. The other great
    thing abou...

  • Posted in thread: 80%ers, Doing my 1st complete build this weekend on 02-23-2015 at 09:42 PM
    I now have about 700 rounds through it and it functions great, I have had zero issues and the
    rate at which I can dump mags is ridiculous. I am glad I got to put the time and money into
    this build, it...
