  • Posted in thread: What is long range? on 02-18-2014 at 03:38 PM
    I have to agree with Ax in a couple of his comments.The term Long range is a very loose term. I
    believe it is classified by the shooters experience with the firearm in which he is using at
    the time. E...

    When we shot together, yes, we fired the same ammo. And yes, we have fired several different
    loads, weights, and brand names out of them. We have even put blanks through it and it still
    does the same ...

    I shot a lot of firearms at what some would call long range. Personally, my idea of long range

    I shoot my...

    I love finding the old junk guns and putting them back in service. Nothing brings more
    satisfaction to me than seeing that old war horse on the front line again. I have seen a few
    come in the shop tha...

    I live in IL and he moved up to MI, so I don't have access to his firearm any longer. He was
    asking me to look into it for him. I am assuming that the mag follower is impeding somehow on
    the extractor...

    I believe that the man is working under the FFL of the gun ship owner. That's how it appears to
    me. I know that he has a dealer account with Brownell's, but then again, so do I! Anybody with
    a tax num...

    Yes, I have turned down work that I thought I was not going to perform 110% better than
    expected. A gunsmith should only work on something that they feel very confident that the
    firearm or part meets ...

  • Posted in thread: AR15 buffer tube/ take down pin problem on 02-11-2014 at 03:36 PM
    I would go with JonM. If the upper and lower are together when the pin is in I would look at
    the buffer assembly. I Would also look at the buffer retaining pin to see if it's too long
