Re: What is your favorite bullpup rifle?

Steyer Aug, I always loved that gun(Diehard anyone?). I have held one but not fired one. It felt pretty good in hand and solid. I have held the Tavor and it felt kinda toy like. I've had a couple of AUG variants (anybody remember the flattop gray ones with the "thumbhole stock" that was just a peic...

Re: Unknown Gun

IIRC, the actual Mauser that's the inspiration for that was the 712. The biggest mag I ever found was a 20 rounder. Mine was a pre-May Dealer Sample, which I don't really regret selling.

Re: What firearm that you used to own are you really wishing you still had?

WWI Vickers in .303.

Not terribly practical (weighed in at over 150# without transit case, water or ammo) but it was one of the few guns I've owned that was set up from the factory for indirect fire. Seriously...the rear sight stood up almost a foot from the top of the receiver when elevated.

Thank you Dale I will look in to that. I noticed that many pest control providers do not guarantee their work vs fleas. The flea bombs did a great job spreading the fleas through the house.

Re: Tavor or Steyr AUG

Tavor or Steyr AUG

So, I've decided that I need a bullpup rifle for use as a dedicated car gun. I'm seriously considering the Tavor and the Steyr AUG. While not the be-all end-all, cost is not irrelevant. I'm curious to see if anyone has shot both, and their thoughts on them. I'm not going to get rid of any of my ARs,...

Dude, it'll take a LOT of wobble for it to be enough to cause a FTF. Shoot it first before you start trying to fix a problem that may not exist.

My main concern with the HSGIs is the exterior cordage. That's an out-and-out deal killer, not for me, but for one of the SMoAFlings, and I'm trying to find a good fix.

Regarding the ITW Fastmags, there's a pretty big price spread. I assume that somebody is making Airsoft copies, right?

Re: Vehicle rifle rack

Obviously I can't speak for everybody. In my case, I generally only keep a rifle in my vehicle when I'm going to and from work. This is because odds are that if if I'm going to have a problem, it's most likely going to be going to or from work. I do leave my magazines and other gear in my vehicle 24...

I've never had one of their complete rifles, but I've had a few of their stripped lowers. Once I've built them up, they've done OK.

I've always liked the idea of a roof mount for an AR car gun, but I've never seen one for sale. I know they're out there, but I've never found one.
