  1. Caliber Conversion Kits and Zero

    I had a conversion barrel from Storm Lake to take a Glock 21 to Glock 20. The zero didn't change on that one, and it shot very well. It would eject reliably, but all over the place. My theory was that the larger slot cut in the slide to fit the 45ACP case head was allowing the 10mm case to...
  2. Target Sports Delivering Again - Megathread

    Hope he likes it - two of my rifles thrive on SK Rifle Match. I kept refreshing the page after I ordered, from receiving the text alert (99+ in stock) to out was 14 minutes.
  3. Target Sports Delivering Again - Megathread

    I'd call it pricey, but not that bad in today's market. I bought Rifle Match back in Aug 2019 for 16.5/per. This order was 18/per.
  4. Red Dot Sight batteries

    Depends on how optimistic you are, and how much of a pain it is to change batteries. Ideally you would remove them, but if the sight requires rezeroing because it has to be removed to swap batteries I'd be sorely tempted not to and put that sight on a calendar based swap schedule.
  5. Guns you find cool just not at their price point

    [rofl] I'll see your Garmin dealer, and raise you 24 years in the 104th Fighter Wing in avionics.
  6. Guns you find cool just not at their price point

    If you get one, and need an avionics guy, I'm in. Will work for BRRRTTT........
  7. AR Build - Mistakes and Updates

    I haven't played with buffer weights much, except for a 10.5 with a carbine length gas tube. That took a heavy one.
  8. What did you do in the reloading room recently?

    So the theory is that rather than have the tool head float, and all 4 stations argue about what the average misalignment is, the individual lock rings float so each die aligns itself? That's pretty slick! Off to the internet...
  9. Guns you find cool just not at their price point

    It is - and as mauser action rifles go, the Zastava M70 isn't crazy money. It's not the prettiest ever, but it's mostly the stock they didn't spend time on. Zastava USA doesn't import the 375, but they do import 458 Win Mags. I got the lefty from a shop on gunbroker that imports straight from...
  10. Guns you find cool just not at their price point

    Well, if you ever find your self in very Western MA, and don't mind left hand rifles:
  11. AR Build - Mistakes and Updates

    Typically, no. The carbine buffer tube has the tab on the bottom for the adjustment pin holes, where the rifle tube is just round. The stocks are made to match. You could probably slide a carbine stock over a rifle tube, but without the tab to keep it from rotating you'd have to find some...
  12. Guns you find cool just not at their price point

    The Blaser R8 Safari - a 375 H&H, left handed, straight pull, swap-barrel rifle. What's not to like?? Oh, yeah. $8300. That's not to like...
  13. Target Sports Delivering Again - Megathread

    There's a couple on there now for $330 with 250 rounds of HM2 included. Neither is left handed, so have at 'em!! The last time I remember a serious 22LR shortage, I shot a lot of 17 HMR because it was available. I wonder if all the people who got into it then made it popular enough that it's...
  14. Target Sports Delivering Again - Megathread

    That was the Prvi match 308, right? I've shot a couple hundred of them - it's good, but not quite Federal Gold Medal good in my rifle. It's also usually cheaper than GMM.
