Re: JP silent spring buffer reconfiguration

That likely won't work because the 9mm SCS has 4 weights (vs. 3) and the slider is longer while the tube is the same length. This limits the travel of the slider below what is needed.

To convert yours, you would have to switch to the 3 weight slider.

Re: 224 Valkyrie

I haven't seen any posts in any forum I've checked where someone explains how buying a 224V upper gets me anything that a 65G upper doesn't do better. Not trying to troll. I just don't get it. That's difficult to tell without knowing what your uses for Grendel are. Personally, my plan is to shoot s...

Re: 224 Valkyrie

I feel that if this caliber takes off the bullet manufactures will be right behind with heaver longer bullets like 100 or 110 gr vld's. One of the factory loads available is a 100 gr pill along with factory loaded 90 grain sierra vld pills. Since federal is marketing the parent company will make th...

Re: 224 Valkyrie

Seeing AR's are being produced 1st for this caliber tells me it must be a great round for the AR. Savage already came out with an AR but not a bolt action yet. I want a bolt action 1st to test it out so I don't spend to much into this caliber, in case it turns out to be a dud and have to dump it. S...

Re: 224 Valkyrie

My 6.8 does about the same with 90g bullets, likewise with 25-45 and 87g. I can't justify putzing around with another type of brass, but to a 556 AR guy who wants to do something different, I think would be an interesting option. The 22 Nosler looks better to me, but that brass situation sucks. 22 ...

Based on what experience/data?

ETA: Was this post about 22 Nosler or .224 Valkyrie?

Re: KAC URX ll

The URX rails really are quite good. I've got a couple of my own and ended up buying the wrench and having a set of vice jaws cut to hold the rail alignment. Once you get used to the installation technique, they really do come off quite easily. If either of you would like to cover shipping both ways...

Re: KAC URX ll

URX rails are a two piece rail that will require a special barrel nut wrench and a fairly specific knowledge of the system for removal. I have a different method that's a little difficult to explain but typically removes even the most stuck handguards. Some URX rails were installed with loctite and ...
