Thanks all, I'll see if Anderson wants me to send it back or if they tell me to try to break out the drill. . .

Re: Selector issue with AR build

Sorry all, I'm having trouble uploading an image and having trouble generally posting :( Hope this goes through. I am using an a Magpul K2+ grip. The conical part of the detent sticks through, but not the cylindrical portion. I am pretty certain is the right spring. The drill bit does not go through...

Selector issue with AR build

I am trying to build a lower and am encountering issues with the selector. It doesn't seem to want to click to engage safety or click to select fire, just kinda swings loose. Detent is installed with pointy end first and I don't think I kinked the spring. Tried two different selectors, AR Stoner and...

Re: Senate Democrats propose tougher gun restrictions

Part of me hopes they pull that so I can helpfully send my representative an enumerated MS Paint photo of my 686+ with 7 "holes", and my 617 with *gasp* 10! They'll only be happy when we are limited to single shot muzzle loading muskets because "that's what they had when the Constitut...

Re: Evil Black Rifle photo thread

Nothing in particular. Things of mechanical nature never seem 100% intuitive to me and so I am always rather cautious, fearful of hurting the parts, tools, or myself :) I've decided I learn the best when learning hands on, in person. I'm also just overwhelmed by the sheer amount of information out t...

Any experienced AR builders starting a new build anytime soon? If so would you be willing to help someone with their first build? Located in St. Paul. Please feel free to PM me. Thanks!

Re: basic medical training?

I've taken a trauma care course with QSI training. Doesn't look like they have anything scheduled in the near future though.

There is a place nearby in WI that I have not been to yet, but have been meaning to try.

Looks like they have a course tomorrow!

Yes, the trigger required non-linear pull in double action, almost like it was binding up. If I drew the hammer back with my thumb it was okay.

J frame/revolver experts - lubrication

Hi, I've got a 637 that I'm comfortable cleaning externally but I had encountered some sticky trigger issues after about two years of daily pocket carry. I've disassembled the firearm (removed grip, crane, cylinder) and have blasted it with Gunscrubber cleaner and scrubbed the parts with a brush. Dr...

Re: Plus P loads??

Ahh interesting, thanks. The powder column extends into the case head. Was there generally a time frame cutoff where these ceased to be made? Or if I were to get a new box of factory .44-40, would it have a balloon head? Any other cartridges have this characteristic besides the 44-40, 45 schoefield,...

Curious - is this a joke? Or is this a reference to some brass being softer?
