OK. Time to open up a big can of worms.

A friend feels the need to buy an AR-15. But just like the rest of us, he wants the best value. I’ve already gave him my recommendation, but I won’t state it just yet, save that it’s a flat top (for optics options) and chambered in 5.56.

Have at it.

“Dr Shotgun”, AKA Bryan Bilinski of Fieldsport, brings exciting news about the upcoming Michael McIntosh Estate Auction that begins next week. “Michael owned many fine sporting treasures. From his infamous gun collection to a sporting library that is without peer, Michael's widow, Connie and I hope that Michael's estate passes on to other sportsmen and women who truly cherish the sporting life style that Michael McIntosh represented and endeared,” says Bilinski. The auction will be hosted at www.AuctionArms.com from August 15th to September 15th. Information about Fieldsport’s wingshooting school and more is available at www.fieldsportltd.com.

The National Shooting Sports Foundation fought hard against the multiple gun sales reporting requirement that the ATF has been trying to implement. Now that demand letters have been sent out by the ATF to FFL dealers in California, New Mexico, Arizona and Texas, the NSSF has brought a lawsuit against the ATF to federal court. NSSF Senior Vice President and General Counsel Larry Keane drops in on Sunday to discuss the lawsuit. More information on the lawsuit and the National Shooting Sports Foundation is available at www.nssf.org.

Also on this Sunday, Zach Waterman of Nosler, Inc., with a new Nosler promotion, information on some upcoming products for 2012, and more! Information is available at www.nosler.com.

 

Thank me!

I know nothing about them except I would have never in my life thought I would EVER bought an “assault rifle” being just a hunter and handgunman.

I bought the S&W because it was the “best one” my crappy monopoly of a gun shop had and to this day I regret not buying the Colt.

Does he want a piston AR-15 or is he willing to go with DGI?

Hard to go wrong with a Stag, Rock River or Spikes Tactical.

If he wants to roll his own, just order everything from Bravo Co. and build it yerself.

I think any mil spec AR is going to suffice.

I’m certainly no expert, but this is the 2nd AR I acquired.

I’m pretty happy with it for about 625 at my local gun shop.

He wants an off-the-shelf model. Gunsmithing is not his thing. He's looking at standard AR design.

Did you give us a range report on that?

Was this before or after the space pod strike?

Thanks for the ping my!

I had a new pistol follow me home yesterday.

I’ll put together a “quasi” range report in a few minutes. (The whole family spent the afternoon out at the range and I’ve got a lot of my Sunday chores and a lot of gun cleaning to do as I bounce in and out of the thread.)

Space pod....LOL

I put the Bushnell T-dot reticle on it and have put about 75 rounds through it. It runs good. Just waiting for a little cooler weather to go shoot it some more.

It was only 104 today!!

Got my bump fire thingy from Colt except he was lame and charged me tax for an out of state sale because he didn’t know how to unprogram his credit card machine not to. Still in the box till I can find a place to shoot it, Range Report pending.

Tell him he owes you a box of ammo on me.

Nice rifle. I prefer the midlength model. I’m pretty sure Spikes still makes one.

Hey 50cal (AKA, the Thomas Edison of homemade shooting gadgets). My photo quality is crap, but you will be able to get the general idea. I used your idea about lumber and a screw, for a cheap scope stand.

I used 2 x 6, figuring that it couldn't hurt to have a little more width for added stability. The scope is threaded onto a screw that runs through the upper board in the photo. The lower board is separate. I will use it in instances where I need a smidge more height, and will simply strap the two boards together using heavy-duty rubber bands.

Dollar investment---$4.17

Satisfaction of a problem solved---PRICELESS!

OMG! another mass shooting in Ohio.
This is becoming a weekly thing in this country and it aint the result of guns.

I think society is on the verge of popping under Obama.

Mosin Nagant caller.

Man, a few years ago you could get albanian brass cased ammo for $35 per 440 count can.
I bought 8 cans.
I wish I had bought more.

I was just checking several sites yesterday for 7.62x54r. The best deal I saw was from “ammo to go”, $144.95 for a crate of 880 rounds. No where near as well as you did on the Albanian stuff, but better than most anywhere else on the current market.

Might have to make a GT run tomorrow.

Thanks guys!!

That $35 a tin price was 3 or 4 years ago.
The price has more than doubled since then.
