Re: Where have all the 1911 gunsmiths gone?

I was talking to a local well-known rifle 'smith a couple months ago and he said all the good 1911 guys have left town. I needed some slide work done on a Springfield, so sent it to Dave Salyer- cost me $180 for shipping fees! That's a third of what Dave's fees were. So I'm thinking there's got to ...

Re: Suggestions for parts - 308 AR build

I just did this! I went through the same process- buying Aero parts (M5E1). But I just took my time and waited until they had either sales or blemished parts. Doing it this way also 'budgets' the rifle by spending smaller bits over time. (But keep in mind you'll spend more perhaps than just buying o...

Re: Loctite on Scope Mount Screws?

(OP here), I've noticed this -loose screws- on my Warne mount on my competition AR. So not much recoil at all, so I'll try the purple. Thanks to everyone who chimed it....obviously great minds think alike.

Loctite on Scope Mount Screws?

Am wondering if it's a good practice to apply a small amount of blue Loctite to the screws on my Scope mount and screws on the rings. I can't think of a downside, unless someone knows of something I don't. Might be a little more difficult to remove quickly, but I've encountered loose screws after a ...

Best 'smith for shortening and threading a Rem 700 ?

I bought a heavy barrel varmint Rem 700 in 308 from Cabelas last fall -dirt cheap, so thought I'd tweak it to death. (Magpul stock, etc) I'm thinking of shortening the barrel to 'scouterize' it (shorten, thread) and then throw on a brake. So I have two names- Odenthal and Kobe. Haven't checked with ...

Re: AR-15 Lower Decision

I second the blem Aero Precision lowers- I think they're great and probably one of the best non-billet ones. Avoid PSA ones these days. Their quality has gone to sh*t.

Re: Plinking/Varmint Rifle: .22 mag or .17 HMR ?

I am thinking you are six of one half a dozen of the other with this question I thought as much, but wanted to see if there was an overwhelming census on one over the other. Seeing as I have a Single Six w/22mag cylinder, might just be easier to go that route and not crowd the cabinet with too many...

Plinking/Varmint Rifle: .22 mag or .17 HMR ?

I'm thinking of adding a rifle to the collection and take it out for plinking and occasional varmint control/camp rifle. I've read good things about the accuracy of the Marlin 22MN rifle. But the Ruger 77 in .17HMR is intriguing. Any thoughts on the pros and cons that would sway a decision? (I'm try...

Re: Plethora of 1,000 yard rifles.....Which one?

M1, thanks for the thought- true, the difference will likely be lost on me and my own capabilities. I suspect the difference in accuracy between the Tikka and RPR is negligible in my hands.

Plethora of 1,000 yard rifles.....Which one?

I noticed Cabela's has the Ruger Precision now at $1,149 (less than the $1,200 I paid for my 6.5 last summer). Seems to me that now Ruger, Savage, Mossberg, Tikka, Howa, etc are now all in board in producing these hybrid AR/bolt rifles. So it makes sense the prices are coming down. But here's the qu...

Re: Glock 35 (in a .40) 'stings' the hand- That normal?

Atomic- thanks for the advice- I'll take her out to the range again and really focus on any slop in my grip. My paws are pretty big, so maybe I should go to the widest back-strap for the gun. (?)

Re: Glock 35 (in a .40) 'stings' the hand- That normal?

.40 in a poly gun is a "snappy" combo according to many people, but it shouldn't be that bad for someone that otherwise shoots a 2" .357. If you're in the far east metro you could meet me at my range some time and put a couple rounds through my metal .40 to see if you think it's the ...

Re: What's it worth? (Tikka 595 in .223 with heavy barrel)

Aw, crap. I never went back to this thread......I got rid of the Tikka shortly after the post. That'll be my lesson to check my posts and update. (How does one now 'delete' a post?)
