Re: All purpose NFA questions thread

Is my door going to be kicked in/house raided/family terrorized/dog shot because I bought an EP Armory 80% lower from Ares Armory? Well, that all depends. Does your house have windows which men (suspended via helicopter) can repel through with smoke canisters, laser beams, etc? If not, then you're ...

Re: Suppressor or Middy for Max?

Length: 6” Diameter: 2” Weight: 18.5 OZ. Price: $695 This is fantastic for a 308 can (and I thought the HTG Predator was a good one). Makes sense to increase the diameter instead of the length, since 2" is still small enough to avoid obstructing the view. I don't like that it's not a take-apart can...

Re: Suppressor or Middy for Max?

Suppressed 300blk is indubitably the tits, but even at $250 for 300rds it's not cheap to shoot, at least not IMO. 300blk is still in the "luxury round" category for me; doable for special occasions but just too costly for an everyday caliber (reloading is a different story). This is why I ultimately...

Re: Suppressor or Middy for Max?

I've shot suppressed 5.56 before, and was a little underwhelmed at the amount of sound reduction. Probably because I was expecting the 'pew, pew' that you always hear in movies... :oops: There are two main contributing factors involved with the noise of a gunshot; the explosion of the powder and, i...

Re: Suppressor or Middy for Max?

So have you actually done this test side by side? The 1-2db in difference isn't worth buying multiple cans to suppress all your guns. All your figures are great for paper, but in reality you won't really tell much of a difference in suppression at all. Depending on your can you won't even tell a di...

Re: Suppressor or Middy for Max?

I'm tempted to vote for the .45 suppressor due to the wider range of calibers it could accommodate, but I think I am leaning just a hair more toward the 9mm. You'll see about a 30%-50% increase in weight (with non-Ti suppressors) when comparing 9mm and .45 versions of the same can, as well as ~1" in...

Re: $399 new AR-15

That's odd, I've only seen two instances of broken NFA lowers, in person or online, since the company first started making lowers ( here and here ) with the first instance being the result of running over the rifle with a tractor (see below), and the second being a bit more of a conundrum... http://...

Re: $399 new AR-15

New Frontier Armory ≠ Plum Crazy If I recall correctly, both manufacturers use the same company to make their molds, however the polymer blends used are not the same. The body of the receiver is made from an extremely rigid glass-filled plastic. The design is externally similar (read: almost identic...

Re: Reactive trigger for semiautos, ALMOST fa!

Some Q&A from the manufacturer via some random dude: 1. Can it work in large pin Colts? Looks like only mil-spec pins. We have a version for large pins but it is not for sale yet. 2. Can most AR lowers allow rotation to 3rd position if they don't have markings? Yes it is not your lower it is the sel...

Clever design, though apparently not a new design. I might pick one of these up if it'll work in conjunction with a .22 conversion bolt :awesome:

Re: The grey man knife

I'm not sure about box cutters either. Unless somehow related to your occupation or profession, carrying one around everyday/everywhere seems more suspicious than, say, a leatherman. As a multi-tool, there are many justifiable reasons for a person to EDC a leatherman. A box cutter, though, is relati...

Take the following hypothetical to better understand what I mean by "premeditated self defense": A man begins to see the crime rate raise in his neighborhood, specifically assault and robbery.

Hard to tell from the reviews, do animals set them off? In particular, say, fromikidal housecats?

It might be possible to adjust one in such a way to where it won't pick up something as small as...
