Really? Lone wolf makes dozens of aftermarket barrels, they make barrels to shoot cast bullets. I've heard their name for years. Maybe I'm mistaken? It was the first link that came up when I typed g20 mag extender.

The only extended Glock mags I own are from the guys who make the Kriss Vector carbine.

I'd love to get some of those Taran Tactical mag extensions, but I don't have the money for them right now. So it looks like I'll have to settle with the Kriss Vector mags for the time being.

So I want to make the butt of my AK more sticky and grippy. I want it to grab my shoulder. I think putting a rubbery material on the rear would work.

Googling around I came across suggestions to use something called Dupli-Color truck bed liner. So that sounds interesting.

Any other ideas? Any experience with Dupli-color or similar efforts? Thanks for any insight or advice. :)

No experience with that but I wonder if the flexseal in a spray can would meet your needs or even just grip tape. Damnit woodsghost now I am wondering if the flexseal I have here will work on the butt of AR stocks.

Welp I accidentally a 10/22. This thing is rough. Like extra holes in the receiver and spray foam in the stock and trigger pack rough.

I bought a trigger gauge (non-digital) this weekend. Either the best or the worst thing I've ever done. My Savage rifle that I thought had such a light trigger breaks at 4 lbs. I adjusted down to 3.25 lbs. My Encore that I with the trigger so light it'll make you jump breaks at 2.5 lbs. My Gen 1 Contender breaks with the "perfect" trigger breaks at 2.5 lbs. My G2 Contender that is good but not great breaks at 2.5 lbs. My Marlin X7 with pretty decent trigger breaks at 2.5 lbs. My Rem 788 that everyone who has shot it agrees has one of the nicest triggers they've ever pulled, breaks at 4lbs. My ARs are all over the place. My favorite revolver breaks at 5.5 lbs single action. .... bleh..

$50 including background check, which was $10.

It has no sights either, just empty dovetails.

That's a fair price.

If it were me in your situation, I'd chuck the old receiver, buy an aftermarket one from Nodak, a new trigger group from Ruger and some Tech Sights along with a Hogue stock.

Basically, the only things I'd salvage from that would be the bolt and barrel. Which by themselves alone are worth the purchase price.

Or rebuild it with take off stuff from ebay. Sit tight and you can do it cheap
OH! I have an Archangel stock for a 10/22 that I'd let you get cheap. That would cover the whole thing. Its new in the package.

At this point the plan is acetone for the trigger pack, replace the stock, then Tech Sights and sling and call it good. Which model Archangel are we talking? Last I checked they had 3 or 4 different 10/22 stock kits.

To be honest I'm currently debating picking up a factory stock stripped receiver from Gunbroker (~$80) or just having my local smith overbore the stock receiver holes and mount a 3/8ths rail with 8-40s so I can put a TS Rail Aperture on it (which is what I did with my first 597). Apparently Ruger might replace the receiver for a low fee, which I'll call and investigate while I'm at work.

If I didn't already have my tuned LSHB as my serious rimfire target gun, I'd be willing to invest Nodak and Volquartsen parts in it, but this is realistically going to be a friend of mine's first gun. As long as it can hold <4 MOA and cycle reliably I'll call it good.

Given how simple it is to work on the 10/22, I might try to build a basic plinker one of these days.

I've got a factory stock kicking around in my closet from my first 10/22 and I could probably score a receiver and other parts for relatively cheap if I catch sales online and around town.

I don't know. If you're interested I can take a picture. It's got an AR adjustable stock is about all I remember. I got it as trade fodder in a deal of some sort.

Ok here are the pictures of my recent Deadpool build as promised. Rifle is chambered in 5.56 with a 1:7 twist 16 inch barrel and a carbine length gas system. Areo Precision lower and an Anderson RF85 upper and a PSA full auto BCG. Red dotis a Bushnell TRS-25 with a UTG 3x magnifier flip to the side and QD mount.

I apologize for the crappy pics.

That's a nice AR, Zobmiedown. :clap:

I'm tempted to have the slide on my G41 Cerakoted, but I'm not sure what color I'd get. I was thinking maybe an antique brass or maybe sort of a stealth grey color with a weathered look.

Thanks chimp. My wife's Glock came from the factory in burnt bronze and its beautiful. You could always go Dewalt tool yellow and call it your nail gun. :lol:

The mag extenders arrived for my G26. Shortly there after, the Glock mag tool arrived. One mag already had a small mag extension on it. Glock mag tools don't seem to be made for mags with extenders. In short:

2. inanimate objects - 0

Speaking of Glock mags, awhile back I bought one of those Kriss Vector mag kits for Glock 21 mags and man that was a bitch to install.

The mag extension itself wasn't bad, it was just a pain in my rear to get the factory baseplate off the G21 mag. I do not currently have one of those Glock mag tools, instead I used a plain punch to get the base plate off. What should've been maybe a five minute job turned into a twenty minute one. That was mostly because I had to watch a couple YouTube videos to figure out how to remove the base plate without a Glock tool.

The next time I decide I want higher capacity Glock 21 mags, I'm going to just buy the full Kriss mags instead of the extension kit.

I have done both, & the prices are roughly the same. PMAGs are a good deal on Botach, if they have them in stock.

Only problem with Pmags is that Magpul isn't making .45 ACP mags yet.

Given the popularity of the Glock 19 and 17 Pmags, I'm sure Magpul will bring out a .45 ACP version at some point. Until then, my only options for higher capacity G21 mags are the aforementioned Kriss mags, the Taran Tactical mag extensions and those Korean mags that fall apart if you look at them wrong.

I have no real need for an extra capacity G21 mag, but it's nice to have them if I feel like messing around at the range. :lol:
