This place is still pretty neat, if you guys do set up something in case this place goes dark I would like to know. Hopefu...

Re: Anyone have experience with 5.56 AKs?

I run 62 gr American eagle, 77 gr Blackhills and I ran 2k of Tula through my Colt 6920. My Colt 6920 runs cheap ammo just fine, ymmv. Ive got nothing against AKs but I dont like 5.56 AKs. I was running mostly 62 gr stuff through the Arsenal and tried 77 grain but the rifle didnt like it. Good infor...

Re: Anyone have experience with 5.56 AKs?

The AR is not nearly as unreliable as some people claim and the AK isnt not nearly as inaccurate as other people claim. In my experience ARs start failing when steel cased ammo with no cleaning. From what I've read, it seems ARs can run pretty reliably if one consistently uses quality ammo. I"d be ...

Vortex Spitfire vs Primary Arms ACSS vs Athlon Midos Prisim scopes?

Im looking at getting one of these scopes in 3x magnification. Which one looks the best? What are some advantages and disadvantages of their reticles?

Re: Anyone have a Sig p320 .45 subcompact?

Given your personal history with Sig I'm surprised you're even considering this. Why not a S&W M&P 45 instead? I want something more compact ,basically Glock 19 sized but in .45 acp (4" barrel and 5" height) and im not wanting DA/SA or I wouldve got an hk45. Ive tried a couple pistols out and I was...

So I'm throwing this question out to the forum: What is the purpose of a civilian, who lives in suburbia, owning a rifle that isn't to be used for hunting?

For defense/combat ,its high capacity, lightweight, has light recoil, modular, and its accurate.

Re: What are YOU currently lusting after? (firearms related)

Im "lusting" after a Sig p320 compact in .45. Ive been wanting a Glock 19 sized pistol in .45 acp that is not DA/SA (like the hk45).

Re: Anyone have a Sig p320 .45 subcompact?

Ive owned 6 p320s in 9mm but got rid of them instead of getting the "upgrade". I had 2 with issues but only one of them had serious issues, it would jam a lot and the mag catch/release wouldnt work. Sig fixed the bad one (took 2 months) and they told me to **** off on the other one, so I had wrote t...

Re: Anyone have experience with 5.56 AKs?

I know a little bit about this. And I had never walked down the rabbit hole that is 5.56 AK. Until just recently. When I owned an - albeit used - Arsenal 106 for a grand total of two weeks. Long story short? Avoid it. Unless you get a Galil. I joined a 5.56 AK only group on facebook. Just to get a ...

Re: Anyone have experience with 5.56 AKs?

They both have their place though. And in the end I don't think everyone or their guns are going to make it in a paw. So I think, they'll be plenty to pick up along the way. In that case I pick an AK. It always works. No matter what. Well, yeah....so long as you stay away from wheelbarrows full of ...

Arsenal has a good reputation though and they have military contracts
What military contracts does Arsenal have?
Bulgaria, supposedly. Im trying to find sources besides other random forums but not much pops up. There are pics of Bulgarian troops carrying them though.

Re: Anyone have a Sig p320 .45 subcompact?

If by "issues" they replaced the not drop safe trigger on the 320. Not quite, in this article there is a link to a report from the US Army where they claim to be having reliability issues. Scroll down to "recommendations" on the report. https://offgridsurvival.com/armys-brand-new-sig-sauer-p320-han...

Re: Anyone have a Sig p320 .45 subcompact?

Yeah, I'm thinking of buying the "compact" and then the subcompact frame. I hadn't checked in awhile, but .45 has come down a lot since the bad 'ol days. Which makes Phalanx happy :) Did you end up getting the Sig p320? Ive been eyeballing the p320 compact in .45 acp too but im a little worried aft...

Re: Anyone have experience with 5.56 AKs?

Just wanted to say I do NOT like the Arsenal 106, it was maybe 5 moa at a 100 yards, wouldnt feed reliably with some ammo. Overall, it was not quite as reliable as my AR15 ,it was not anywhere near as accurate as my AR15 and the finish was crap. It felt more like a commie mini 14 than a quality har...

From the article above it seems the gen5 series was built with institutions in mind, like police and military armorers. It sounds like they will have a harder time accepting aftermarket parts.

Pretty much all or none. That's assuming you mean affected and not effected.
Lol in the past the left has targeted specific calibers like 5.56, 30-06 etc etc.thats what I was asking about.

Re: Anyone have experience with 5.56 AKs?

So Arsenal says the 106 has a barrel life of 15k, does that mean 15k untail its not very accurate anymore or 15k untail it keyholes? I was talking to a guy on another forum who supposedly served in the Bulgarian army and claims the rifle is 100% reliable and holds up similar to the AK74. Supposedly ...
