Re: WTS - Worlds Finest Trimmer -SOLD

Thank you. Trimmers arrived today. Perfect for my applications, I do a lot of reloading, and this way I don't have to do as much switching of trimmer parts and adjusting.

Re: Magpul Hunter American stock for the RARR

Upate to Hunter American stock and the RARR: I've now found posts from other buyers in which the MDT and Accurate AICS pattern .223 mags will not feed. In the instance of the MDT failure, the poster told me that the MDT .223 mag is giving the same failure as my Ruger mags...the round is not held hig...

Re: Magpul Hunter American stock for the RARR

The case rim is not even touched by the bottom of the bolt face/lug; it goes right over it, never making contact with the cartridge base to push the cartridge forward to chamber. The bottom of the bolt does lightly touch the side of the case about half way up. Removing material from the trigger hous...

Re: Magpul Hunter American stock for the RARR

After trying everything I could think of that wasn't destructive to the stock, it's being returned for a refund. If they find a defect, they are to call me and offer to send another stock with no such defect, which I will consider. I even went so far as to measure the bedding blocks and try them rot...

Re: Magpul Hunter American stock for the RARR

FYI

Found in May 2017 the Magpul Product Manager said it would not work with Ruger AI mags. But, in Aug of 2018 he posted it will work with Ruger AI mags. I had forgotten about his May 2017 reply and relied on the Aug 2018 reply when I ordered my Hunter stock.

Re: Magpul Hunter American stock for the RARR

Both Magpul techs warned me to not alter the stock or parts or they would not take it back. Physically the mag will not go up into the stock enough to feed. I tried it without the trigger guard in place and pressed up very hard. While the bottom of the bolt face would now barely touch the edge of th...

Re: Magpul Hunter American stock for the RARR

Wow. Thank you for all the info. Now my failure to find AI branded .223 polymer mags makes sense. It could very well be that Magpul had one on hand and that is what they used in designing the stock. I tried pushing up all 3 of my mags in both of my RARRs. The back of the mags would go up further a f...

Magpul Hunter American stock for the RARR

Mine arrived today. Easy to install my Ruger American Ranch Rifle (300 Blackout) and looks great especially with a suppressor to give the bbl some length, but none of my 3 Ruger AICS .223/5.56 mags feed. Bottom of bolt face does not make contact with the base of the cartridge. Magpul Product Manager...

Re: Shoulder length

See viewtopic.php?t=89334

Per Lee, their 300 Blackout sizing die is not meant for forming Blackout brass. FWIW, I use an old set of Redding dies. To form Blackout brass I have to have the die screwed down a half turn more than when simply full length resizing.
