    Bear Creek Arsenal complete AR.

    All true. BCA and the parent company Moore’s Manufacturing had issues in the early days but I believe they are trying to overcome that reputation. Some of their products and even some of the same products in a production run need a bit more QC. Some members haven’t had good luck but I have a .300 BO barrel and a side charge upper that are good to go. They do have pretty good customer service and that goes a long way in my book. Glad you are having good luck with your rifle. Keep us posted on how it runs long term. Welcome to the AR madness! There are a bunch of good people here who won’t give you crap over any choices and are willing to help if you have any questions. Stick around and contribute when you want.

    AR-45

    Well much better luck with the 8oz buffer and heavy lube. I put a .45 cleaning brush on the end of a drill and worked the chamber area really well. Still not flawless but FTF was much less. I actually shot ten or twelve rounds in pretty quick succession and loved every second of it. The PCC is a really nice set up so anyone considering buying a compliment to their hand gun it’s a great option for .45ACP shooters. Now after solving or at least improving the chambering of the rounds, the carbine is having issues stripping the next round from the mag or thinking the mag is empty and locking the bolt back. Hit the bolt release and it picks up and rams one home. These are cheap 26rd Korean or Chinese mags and I ran out of ammo before I tried the genuine Glock 13rd I have. I really like the rock and roll ease of getting lead down range with the PCC. Once all issues are solved I think it’s going to be my go to truck/ HD gun. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Sale at Lantac-USA

    Their stuff may be the finest on the planet but they would have to offer a discount three or four times that before I could afford it. $300 for a BCG? Jeebus! I am certainly not downing their products but brand name has no bearing to me. Buy all you want, I was very pleased to grab a no name PSA BCG for $49.99. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    1MOA Rifle, for less than $300

    CDNN also has these in stock last I looked. Thompson Center is a well respected name and I am sure these will be up to snuff. I looked at the pricing and was tempted but the strange buttstock shape put me off. I am very traditional about bolt guns and even some pistols and aesthetics are important. I can’t get past the stock so no T/C for me. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  7. Yes it does. As competition increases in the AR market, niche companies like Adams will suffer. They may produce a good product but DI guns are cheaper and more to the original design. There are so many companies out there with good products you absolutely have to have some neato whiz bang product to stand out. Adams is one of those but it isn’t enough to offset the higher pricing unless the consumer is looking specifically for a piston gun. I doubt Adams will go the way of the dinosaur, someone will pick up the company and importantly the patents to produce piston style weapons. You just really have to want one to purchase one. I wish them luck! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Too many ARs ???

    This is always the way I feel about my firearms. Times are good-collect. Times are bad-sell. They are always a way to generate cash. Some I have sold I regret but like said, paying bills was tantamount. Right now I am in an up cycle so the collection grows. When I was out of work last summer, I sold a couple of ARs I wasn’t using to get by. No big deal, do what you have to. There will be another upswing and get more. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Hard Hat

    Ahh Sarge, the voice of reason. I never thought about it that way. I think most construction folks are conservative leaning or at least have a sense of humor. It only takes one tho. I'm already wearing AR stickers on both sides. Thats enough to get them started. I guess I dont need to wear my "Nobody needs an AR...." tee shirt to work either.

    Interstate long gun purchase

    Thanks for the input guys. I guess I need to check gun laws here to make sure then ask the dealer in another state if its ok. I know GA is or used to be that way. I bought several long guns while I was working in Atlanta and the dealer said my state of residence had to have a common border with GA to be legal.

    Sci Fi Anyone??

    Even Tom Clancy. While they are still decent they arent true Clancy. Another one is Clive Cussler. His Dirk Pitt books were great but now he is collaborating with someone and Dirk's son is the headliner now IIRC. I got caught up in Raise the Titanic when I was a teen. Someone at the pizza place I worked at had it. I started reading it and couldnt put it down. Several hours later I turned to the last chapter and they tore it out!! Dunno if they were just playing a joke or were mad because I was reading at work! They sure got a chuckle when they heard me shout "AAaaauuugghhh!"

    .450 Bushy Any One?

    Good to have handy friends with a mill. I guess I will buy the XL from DTT for $60 and maybe a few other things to edge over the free shipping threshold. Ive been eying a silent spring buffer and an easy mag load. I gotta be easy, This week I will be short on hours so next weeks check will suck. On the bright side I get a couple days in the woods blasting off rounds with friends. A mini vacation unpaid tho cuz I always draw my vacation pay at my anniversary date just in case I quit or get fired, lol.

    Easter Bunny In My Backyard!

    A quick bunny then. It usually takes two dogs, one to chase and one to cut if off, kinda like coyotes or felines would do in the wild. Bunnies are quick and can do 90* turns like no ones business! Or maybe they start a pole dance and sucker all the dogs dollar bills!
