  2. Interested also. Is this going to happen soon?
  3. Ran across this bag in an email. http://www.policehq.com/Products/STR-RANGEMOLLE Anyone have any idea how it compares to the Midway bag or others? Thanks, Randy
  4. In for an 18" with rifle gas and PM sent. Thanks EDIT: Any chance of getting matched bolts with these?
  5. Thansk Doc, good to know about the Vortex. One less thing to deal with!
  6. Steve, I haven't come across the purple loctite before but will definately keep an eye out for it. The barrel does have dimples but the flash hider is a Smith Vortex and it's instructions specifically state not to use a washer of any kind, just torque to 5-10 ft lbs.
  7. Warning noted and I have had that concern about the red locktite myself. From the reading I have done the Rocksett is a high temp, medium strength retaining compound. This is supposed to give the advantage of withstanding the heat at such areas as the flash hider and gas block while still allowing fairly easy removal. I don't have any first hand knowledge so ..... Anyway, thanks for the concern.
  8. No problem, just glad for all the advice. The barrel is dimpled so it's just a matter of locking in the screws so they don't loosen over time. May just go the route you suggest with slight staking.
  9. Thanks for the tip. I'll definately keep it in mind.
  10. Great info! I wasn't even aware of this loctite but it sounds like just the ticket. This is exactly why I come here. Thanks to all.
  11. I have red loctite on hand so I guess I'll give that a try first. Good to know that Amazon has the Rocksett available for the future. Thanks for the input. Randy
  12. Doc, the gas block is a set screw type. The barrel is 18" so doesn't need a permanent flash hider attachment. From my reading, locktite doesn't seem to hold up that well over time due to the high temps that those two components can experience. Just trying to avoid problems in the future but if proper torque is enough I'm good with that. Thanks, Randy
  13. So, I'm on my first build and just have to lock the gas block and flash hider in place. The preferred method seems to be to use Rocksett. After severall Google searches I've found Flexobar Rocksett - 4 oz. for $15.00 or 2 oz. for $9.00. Is this the right stuff and where do you all buy it from? I also found FortaFix Rocksett from an English company which seems to have the same properties but no pricing or dealer info. Thanks, Randy
  14. I'm hoping the bolt carrier I just ordered shows up in time. If it does I'm in for one. This is too good to pass up!
  15. Mine was waiting for me when I got home yesterday :D. Opened it up and did a temp mount just to get feel for it. Seems like a solid well constructed unit. Can't wait to get on the range with it. Thanks to everyone involved for setting this up!!! Randy
