    My son graduates college today.

    Congrats. I had my son's college graduation this weekend myself. Like you; one down and one to go. Hope he has good fortune in whatever career he finds himself in.

    Sometimes. I'm by far no expert, but steel cased ammo has improved over the years. My experience with the older steel casings is that they were coated in protective grease (I can't for the life of me think of the name, but somebody here will). The coating would cause the casings to get stuck in the chamber and you'd have to pop them out with a cleaning rod. I can only speak about the steel casings used by Tula and Wolf, but I've got through about 500 rounds of each brand and never had an issue in my rifles, and neither has my brother in law, who shares ammo cost with me. If you decide to try steel, I'd suggest going to the nearest Wal Mart or gun store and buying 20-40 rounds and test it out. Run the ammo however you see fit, but I started out single round, double, then loaded the rest and fired as rapidly as I could to see if I could induce a stoppage with the steel ammo. The only negative to steel casings is you can't reload them.

    Lucky Gunner has the best prices one the internet that I've been able to find. If your rifle can digest Tula or Wolf ammo for plinking those will be the best deals at around $.20 a round. Something else I would suggest you think about is buying .223 for plinking versus 556, as 223 tends to run a bit cheaper. Enjoy your new rifle.

    Am I normal?

    I'd say you were weird if you didn't spread BRD.
  7. Then you're looking at building an NFA (National Firearms Act) item. It's easy, just fill out the ATF paperwork, get fingerprinted, have your picture taken, send all the paperwork in with a $200 check and wait a year. When you get your stamp you can build it as short as you want.

    Hey LawDawg1911

  10. Has anyone else noticed that until the last three years or so rifles, specifically the AR style, were almost never used. But every time there was a shooting the MSM and liberal politicians ginned up the ban-the-AR rhetoric. Now it seems an AR or some type of "assault rifle" is used almost exclusively. It's almost as if they talked about it so much that eventually the nut jobs of the world got the memo and started using rifles. That's my tin foil hat take.
  11. I'm assuming your're not talking about going the NFA route and building a short barrel rifle?

    help with two stage trigger.

    Just to toss my two cents in; there's nothing wrong with upgrading a firearm with aftermarket parts. A lot of the time they're better than the factory part. But the caveat I would give is don't let a part take the place of practice. An improved trigger improves the gun, not the shooter. Working on the fundamentals of shooting will tighten up groups better than an aftermarket part. But I hope you enjoy the new trigger and it does what you hope it'll do.

    Barrel Switch?

    Definitely only use the blue loc tite. My first build I used red thinking, I'll never take the barrel off. Well, guess what I did about a month ago? I had decided to change out the original handrail to one with a thinner profile (I'm giving the rifle to my son when he graduates college and I wanted to dress it up a bit). The new handrail used the low profile barrel nut, so everything needed to come off. Long story short, I had to drill out the set screws in the gas block. fortunately I had a spare GB so the reinstall wasn't delayed.
