Re: ALL Purpose Magazine thread.

Just made a recent aquisition of a Sig P226 in .40 s&w. I'm having a hard time finding anything in stock, anybody know where I might be able to find something that is in stock? I already bought (I hope anyway) botach's last few, but I'm alittle worried about it magically going from out of stock to ...

Re: ALL Purpose Magazine thread.

Anybody have an idea of what I should ask for 10 5.45x39 AK mags? All black bulgy circle 21's, various colored followers.
I'm not sure about selling them unless I get the m&p9c I'm lusting after, but mind you I bought a ton of them when they were $6 at the gunshow.

Re: New 9mm Saiga.

They both have a balanced recoil system. Very smart design but a bit too complicated versus the 74 for the ruskies to really adopt.

Rifle cannot become pistol. Only the other way around.
Even to make it an AOW it'd be $200. The transfer is $5 afterwards.

Re: FNH FiveseveN (5.7x28)

I'm thinking about selling my five seven just to downgrade to a cheaper caliber. Its a truly great gun. I love the design, it fits great in my monster hands, I just wish it was easier to find a decent price on ammo. Jumps from $20 to $30 at the drop of a hat.

Re: The All Purpose AK Thread

Those tapco mags really are crappy. I was clearing the only malfunction my sgl31 ever had with my tapco, and it wouldn't budge. Turns out the feed lips had decided to open up and wedge into the receiver. When I finally got it out I had a magical milsurp wand with rounds flying everywhere.

Re: Help me decide: 1-4x Scopes

The nikon .223 is another one on the list, thanks for mentioning it. Recently I shot a buddy's Sig 556 with a burris MTAC / fastfire III, and found myself head over heals for the small magnification of the scope. I was grouping better than I can with a red dot, but didn't feel "locked in" like I do ...

Re: Help me decide: 1-4x Scopes

I completely forgot about the leatherwood CMR, it's definitly in the same ballpark, and although it does look a little too busy, I like the donut-dot reticle.

yea, i'd love the TR24, but paying more for the optic than I spent on the rifle is not a habit I practice at this point in time.
