A friend of mine picked up a used 204 Ruger upper last year. He just got around to getting pieces together to scope it out. I ended up assembling it all for him. The upper and gas block were poorly cammo painted and the cheap hand guard was mis-aligned. Before I mounted the scope I pulled the gas block and tube off and found the barrel nut was out of alignment a tad. I torqued the barrel nut, aligned the gas block, set the hand guards and then mounted the older Tasco 5x20 scope he had for it. I believe this scope is old enough to be one of the good one's but I am not the authority on Tasco scopes. The barrel is stainless, 24" with Enfield rifling and that is all I know about it as it's unmarked.


I gave it a quick bore sight so now he can take it out and see how it shoots.  It's not how I would build one but he may just get lucky and have a real shooter.






Died, buried, rotted, caved in, back filled, paved over, and forgotten.

Looks like fun.


The best gun for self defense? Any loaded one will do.

Isn't that one of the seven signs of the coming apocolypse? Plagues, famine, Noneya buys a gun...
