  1. Buffer Modification.. adding weight For those of you that like to tweak your buffer weights. Here is a easy way to add weight to a standard weighted buffer. Weigh your existing buffer on a set of scales so you know what your dealing with, then knock out the roll pin and disassemble. You will then be able to see how much room you have to play with inside your buffer. As you may know, some buffers have more dead space in them than others. Using bullet weights (fishing sinkers) Get a selection of sizes to use from. From 1/16oz. through 1/2oz. Pick your choice of bullet weight and smash it in a vise, making sure you don't flatten it so much that it doesn't fit the buffer. If you do, you can ping around the edges with a small mallet or trim with a file, knife, or dremel tool. FYI.. You can compress a 1/8oz. bullet weight to about the exact size/thickness as the rubber spacers that are already in between the buffer weights. With lead in between the buffer weights, the rubber spacers are no longer needed. After you add all of the desired weight, slightly tamp the weights to seat them. You may choose to leave a small amount of space in the buffer. The dead air space does help in the buffering. But I have found that very little space is needed. You can bounce the buffer on the counter to see if you need to add air space in the buffer. You will see that sometimes you only need the slightest amount of air space in the buffer when using the extra lead weights. Weigh your buffer on the scales when you are done and engrave the weight on the side of the buffer. It's a easy way to identify and select your buffer of choice when you have a multitude of them laying around. Author geddieup Category Submitted 02/16/2013 03:37 PM
  2. Call your state Reps and tell them to oppose HB545 And tell them to stop waisting our tax dollars on this type of garbage

  4. 18" isn't too short. And by the time you put a comp on it, your overall barrel length will be around 20" The 18" barrels are quite popular amongst many.
  5. Sadly, there are several members that vote what their union endorses. Without any question or research
  6. In regards to some of the elected officials that the unions support and assist in getting elected. You see how quick they are to turn against our constitutional rights and civil liberties, Does anyone really think that they wouldn't ever turn on the unions? LOL they would in a heartbeat
  7. Sadly, some union leaders may believe that. But I don't believe the members think that. Not where I'm at anyways. I just pray that people will stand up for their rights. Union or non-union we all need to be contacting our elected officials and tell them to oppose any and all new ant-2nd A legislation. Let them all know, whether any of the legislation passes or not, If they vote for it, we will be coming for them... We will vote them out.
  8. I hear ya, the second we get any elected official eleted.. We have lost all control of said person. We desperately need to regain control of our govt.
  9. I hear ya.. No doubt, you and I are like minded. I'm personally involved with the Local 41 letter. This just started a week ago. I met with our local last Monday. They agreed with us members that helped write the letter. The letter was written by many members from several locals. We have not received a reply from Hoffa yet. But when we do, I will post it. Until then, we are encouraging any and all union members from any union to please join in! We have to stand up for our liberty and freedom. We have to protect our constitution. Union members are not a bunch of anti-everything sissy ass spineless cowards thats going to let our liberty be infringed upon without a fight! It's time to protect what our forefathers fought and died for. Are we going to give it all away now?? I'm not. Please share the letter patron. Alter it to fit your needs. We need to unite on this and get this out asap.
  10. I assure you it is happening as we speak. I understand what you are saying.. and I agree with you. I am also a union member. And it makes me sick to see what is currently happening to our country. Our local is 100% on board with this. They agreed to contact some of our elected officials that are currently siding with the anti-second amendment lobby. I've been extremely busy helping with with the pro-gun lobby, And thought this site would be a wonderful place to to share the union members letter. We need to encourage other union members to encourage their leaders to help protect our liberty. If you think you could help share the letter with anyone, please do so. Godspeed friend
  11. You are welcome, one more thing I forgot to mention, you may need to use a small cheater bar with your strongest made strap wrench. Paul
  12. This is a letter that is being sent to Union leaders on the Local level as well as on the International level. It originally started with with some patriotic Teamster Union members but it is being shared amongst other Unions. UAW, Law Enforcement Unions, Sheet metal workers Union, Iron workers, Rail Road, etc. Just replace the teamster with your union of choice as well as your local number and who it is addressed to. Modify and copy these letters and distribute amongst other union members. And mail ASAP. Send to your elected officials as well. Let them know that your union opposes any infringment upon our liberty and freedom. Share with all friends and family that could benefit from these. Please don't hesitate, get engaged and stay engaged. Encourage all to take action NOW Page 1 Cover Letter of Intent The intent of this letter is to bring to attention the high level of concern amongst some of our members in regards to the current attacks on our US Constitution and individual liberties by the anti-gun lobby. As patriotic Union Members of this nations greatest Union we feel that the Teamster Union should not be silent on this issue. We feel that it brings negative exposure to our Teamster Union being since we have assisted in getting a few of the elected officials voted into office that may currently be siding with the anti-2nd Amendment lobby. We need to let our elected officials know that the Teamster Union opposes any and all attacks on The United States Constitution and our individual liberties and freedom. ___________________________________________________________________ Page 2 Dear Mr. James P. Hoffa, General President of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters I am writing you in regards to the current situation that we all as patriotic union members are facing in regards to the current political attacks by the anti-gun lobby on our 2nd Amendment rights. After a multitude of conversations amongst concerned Union brothers and sisters, we felt that it was time for our Union leaders to take a strong stance on this unbelievably important issue. It is of great concern that the Teamster Union and our members may have not knowingly supported a few of our elected officials that are currently attacking our 2nd Amendment rights and civil liberties. This should concern not only the Teamster Brotherhood, but any and all patriotic Americans. We strongly feel that in supporting any elected official that is partaking with the anti-gun lobby and any anti-2nd Amendment lobby could easily jeopardize future political elections on state and federal levels. We feel that we as voters and as Teamsters, may be forced to vote only for elected officials that can guarantee us as voters and patrons that they will uphold our US Constitution and protect our liberty and freedom regardless of any other political views. We feel that our Union leaders should encourage the elected officials that many of us have helped get elected to NOT support and to only oppose any and all types of new anti-gun legislation that is clearly a infringement upon the US Constitution. We feel that our fellow countrymen, union and non-union alike, should know that the Teamster Union supports the US Constitution and objects to any infringement upon our liberty and freedom. We the Teamsters should not be silent on this very important issue. Speaking in behalf of many Teamster brothers and sisters that I write this letter for, I assure you that we are strong and very loyal Teamsters. But we are also strong loyal Americans and supporters of the United States Constitution and The Bill of Rights that many of us have served to protect. Sincerely, Concerned Kansas City Local 41 Teamster members
  13. The Colt free float tube you have is also a barrel nut. It is all one piece. You will need a couple strap wrenches, upper receiver action block, heat gun or hair dryer, and a not necessary but may help Midway part number 497211. Make sure that at least one of your strap wrenches has a woven nylon strap. If you use a rubber strap for your secondary wrenches, make sure it is a large heavy rubber strap. (I have had to use 3 strap wrenches before) Assuming you already have the gas block and gas tube removed, put your upper in the action block and tighten down in your vise. Now apply heat, you aren't trying to get it red hot, just getting it warm enough to help break it loose. You may want to mask off the area of the tube where you are putting the strap wrenches so you won't scratch the Colt tube. If you do choose to use the handguard tool I metioned above, It will slightly scratch the inside of the holes of the Colt tube. The handguard tool WILL NOT break the tube loose using it by itself. It isn't heavy made enough to do so. It will only assist with the strap wrenches. And as long as you have good strap wrenches, you won't even need the handguard tool. Like most manufacturers, Colt will have used anti-seize grease on the barrel nut threads. Once you break it loose it will unthread with ease. After you get the barrel nut heated up, put the strap wrenches close towards the barrel nut end of the tube. If a third wrench is used, put it about midway on the tube. You may want a second person to help handle the wrenches. Now start turning counter clockwise as you would look down the barrel towards the receiver. I have removed some with little effort.... and some using great effort. If yours is threaded on over 50 ftlbs, you will wrestle with it a bit. Make sure your action block is snug in the vise. Good luck friend, you will do fine. If you need anymore help just DM me again. And fyi (you may already know this) but you will need a mil-spec barrel nut to install your Alpha rail. Paul
  14. I don't mess around with very many flash suppressors so I can't comment on those.. but I do have several comps. One that is very affective and you can pick up for around $50 is the Jerry Miculek comp. DPMS also sells them as well as Brownells
  15. I'm finishing one up now.. I have already shot the barrel on another upper, and I was very pleased. I will post pics when I'm done and give a report
  16. Set a snare, hotshot to the face, pepper spray, bullet, sharp stick in his eye, drag him behind your truck down a gravel road with a log chain, ball bat over the head... and then when your done with your neighbor, you can take care of the mutt
  17. Velasquez is a bad man, but I never would have thought that Lesnar would have went down in the first round... WOW
  18. They are both nice triggers. Other than the 1st and 2nd stage pull weight differences , the SSA has a little more sear engagement than the SSAE. That being said , the trigger will have to travel just slightly more before the hammer falls. Both SSA and the SSAE are great triggers for the money. They would be compared to a non-adjustable version of the Geissele Designated Marksman (which is a fantastic trigger group) Can't ever go wrong with any Geissele trigger group. Hope this could help ya
  19. Ya.. sear blocks suck.. but they can be taken out
