Pistol sights

Had a mild disagreement with my brother tonight. He doesn't agree that blacked out rear sights and a bright front sight are the way to go, thinking that bright front and rears is where it's at, with three dots like tritium, or even the Glock factory U notch and white dot front. I have found I shoot ...

Re: Cleaning a rusty barrel

There are restoration gunsmiths; one good one online is Mark Novak, whose Anvil channel I watch a lot. He has had a lot of success with boiling metal pieces, including actions and barrels, to stop rust. Have a look there and see if he's worked a similar problem. I'd say drop him a note, but he is ve...

Re: AR issues

Thanks, Rip. A new upper or a new barrel and gas block are likely in my future.

Re: AR issues

You have 2 uppers and 2 lowers. YES Upper #1 is a S&W, Upper #2 is a ?. Unk, built on an Aero lower Lower #1 is a KP15, Lower #2 is a ? Aero Your failure to feed and lock back issues happen when upper#1 is mated to lower #1. You don't have any issues when upper #2 is mated to lower #1 or when up...

Re: AR issues

Would rarely lock back on an empty mag after firing one round, be it Gen 2 or 3. Sometimes would not feed from Gen 2 on bolt drop. All ejected fine, in the same general area about 4 o'clock at six feet or so. BCG and bolt looked ok. Would stand nose up on an extended bolt, so the gas rings are likel...

Re: AR issues

I would lock it open, insert a mag, and load a round into the chamber that way. The used rounds all ejected about six feet away at 4 o'clock.

Did not try loading one round to see if it will lock open, will do so next trip, thanks.

AR issues

I am having AR issues. The rifle (carbine length) will not feed reliably. It does eject, but will not take a round off of the top of the magazine. A few tries already: I have a new KP15 polymer lower, which recommends Gen 3 AR mags or US GI. I tried brand new 30 and 20 rounders with new ammo. No luc...

Re: Training By Nationally Known Instructors In The Midwest

I put up a similar question a while ago, and got a few replies. Unfortunately, here in flyover land, we're still a bit out of the loop, it seems. There used to be a Farnham class in Monticello, and I took ECQC in Morristown, but I think it's hosting as much as teachers that keep us from getting nati...
