Re: Cva scout rifles

Bonus: the trigger is really nice. Haven't checked it on a scale but it does feel good.

Re: PSA Blem Complete Uppers W/O bcg$ charging handle

Make sure you check headspace. PSA has good warranty support but they don't do a lot of quality control. Some of their bargain barrels have tight (or short) chambers. Same for other makers as well. Chamber reamers are expensive so makers will use them a little too long and end up with short chambers...

Re: Cva scout rifles

Looks like CVA has been reading their reviews. They've brought back the Hunter in 300 BLK, and it's a takedown model as well. It's a compact model (13" LOP) and stainless steel, too. Here's the new catalog. Scroll down to page 8 for the Hunter: https://cva.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/01/CVA-2019-Cat...

Re: Shoulda Done It Sooner

SWFA.com had a pretty good sale. It's worth getting on their email list. They only run a sale once or twice a year.

This. Headshots for the win.

Also, a Gen 3 Glock plus an adapter from Endo Tactical and a KAK arm brace makes a very small package for a pseudo PCC. Add a red dot and you're in business.

Re: Moe p-mag problems with my AK-47

The golden rule of gunsmithing is to modify the cheapest part first. I am not a gunsmith, but I concur with modifying the cheapest part first. Easy to get a fresh mag; hard to fix a receiver or trunnion if you grind too far. Mags are considered disposable items. Okay, combloc AK mags probably do la...

Re: United States Supreme Court

I am happier than a pig in mud. Let the leftists whine all they want. Kavanaugh will be an excellent Justice. The first accuser's testimony seemed coached. The story had lots of holes. I suppose it's possible that she was actually assaulted at some point, but trying to pin it on Kavanaugh at this da...

Re: Barrel Nut Torque

Some people just can't be taught. They already know everything.
