Very happy to give this guy a home. :awesome:
Nice looking rifle, NT2C.
Yeah, certain wood-&-steel rifles can't help but catch the eye. Hope it shoots as good as it looks.

Re: Firearms Chat: Yeet Cannon 2 Electric Boogaloo

Ugh....Just noticed PSA has their chrome-lined premium Mid-gas Mock Dissy uppers back in-stock. I had one years ago, but sold it to a buddy who liked it even more than I did. I'm tempted to pick-up another, just for shits-&-giggles. I always thought they looked pretty sharp with a MOE handguard....a...

Re: Revolver in 9mm: S&W or Chiappa?

Speaking of .357/9mm convertibles, there's always the Taurus 629 SS Multi-Caliber ....with a reported weight of 46 oz. and a 6.5" handle...err...barrel, you could always use it as a blunt weapon when the action locks-up. https://i1012.photobucket.com/albums/af242/boomslang45/tomato.gif https://www.b...

Re: Firearms Chat: Yeet Cannon 2 Electric Boogaloo

Could use an adjustable weight , and just fiddle with the weights until it runs like you want it. ...in theory, I suppose. I've never actually used one, the weights in my ARs worked fine. (Probably not so much anymore, what with the corrosion from an unfortunate and extended immersion in the gulf.)...

Re: Firearms Chat: Yeet Cannon 2 Electric Boogaloo

A carbine weight buffer shouldn't be a problem. Neat. I guess if I have to, I can always pick up a different weight buffer. Usually you'd want to run the heaviest buffer that will still cycle reliably (and lock the BCG back on an empty mag) while shooting the weakest ammo you plan on using. Ideally...

...which led to picking up a nice BM59 from the folks over at Midway. Wow. Larry Potterfield is awfully proud of those spare BM59 magazines. Yeah, mags are expensive. But shopping around I'm finding them used for a lot less than Midway has them. Anyone else besides Sadlak make a scope mount for it?

Re: Firearms Chat: Yeet Cannon 2 Electric Boogaloo

I've not had the chance to handle the 7.62x51 ACE, just the 7.62x39 one. It was heavy, but not too bad. The M14 clone the shop had next to it weighed more and I think that was mostly because it had a wood stock. The .308 Galil Ace with 16" barrel has an advertised dry weight of 8.7 pounds. The M1A ...
