  1. Yeah, if you're going to go longer than the barrel make sure you only use a flash can to make up the difference.
  2. In my opinion it's really what you prefer. My 300blk are purpose built to run on subsonic rounds on a can, and I like the hand guard to cover some of the can. But some guys hate that look. It's really up to you. You can always go a little longer with the hand-guard and use a flash can to make up the difference when you're not running the suppressor. I don't think there are any rules to this game.
  3. I can recommend this guy. http://www.dogfightink.com/stencils.html I've used his product and he can produce whatever you want or need. ...it's a shame if you've put a finish on the lower, since you'll have to strip it off to use this method.
  4. I'm not going to say in a public forum how many lowers I've finished that I've lost in my boating accident. But if I could retrieve them from the bottom of Lake Minnetonka I seriously doubt you could tell the difference between my completed lowers and those fully manufactured. All the tolerances are in range, and I've gotten quite good at it. I have no idea what idiot did the one in the OP. Was that lower screw-up intentionally as a joke? I run .458 SOCOM, .308, .300blk, 5.56 on mine, with no problems. I've also done AK-47s (trashcan guns) and a few Glocks. I use both mil-spec triggers and binary triggers with no issues. With that said, I've never used one of those drill press jigs. 80% Arms and 5D tactical are the jigs I've used. Both are virtually identical in design and function and pretty much fool proof.
  5. Can you give me the product page you're referring to? I already own the upper receivers and barrels. I'm running Franklin arms binary triggers just for fun, and I want something that will reduce the heat and blow-back off the cans, if that's possible. I'm not looking for the impossible these will be 100-yard guns, maybe a little longer. From a practical standpoint, they might be used for hog hunting on open land, perhaps deer guns from a stand in heavily wooded southeastern land. I want to run 195-225 gr rounds out of them, and I would like to keep it subsonic for nigh hunting over farm land. Am I thinking right here, or am I off the trail? I guess hunting DI is fine, but I'm looking to keep the heat and blow-back down for fun shooting. I have a can for my .458 and a set up that works for me hog hunting. But I'd like to be able to use my 300blk for the same purpose.
  6. I always build two of everything. Just a habit I guess. My two 300blk builds are using a heavy 10" 1:7 twist barrel. I'm going to run stainless steal cans on them. This is a moderate range pistol, and I'm looking to try to reduce the heat on the can, as well as blow-back. Is it worth the investment. I like what I read about the Adams Arms kit, but it is pricey compared to direct impingement options. The fact that the BCG isn't standard is a little concerning. But not a deal breaker. I just want to know if it's worth it.
  7. I agree. The NRA as of late has become top heavy with a lot of expenses going to things which aren't the primary objective of the organization. Also no one decent can get elected to positions of power.
  8. I posted a question here: But thought it might get a bit more attention in general.
  9. Has anyone tried this kit, or have recommendations regarding gas piston conversion on AR platform. Are there any pistons that will run with standard BCG, or is that just impossible? I'm considering this for 10.5" 1:7 300bk pistol, specifically built to run subsonic suppressed fire. I've always used standard direct impingement systems and have no experience with gas piston systems on the AR platform. My default is to always keep it simple stupid, but there some advantages a piston might offer for this particular build. Any thoughts or recommendations are welcome!
  10. I was just looking around and came across this. https://sharpshooter-22lr-reloader.myshopify.com/products/prime-all-repriming-compound Again, I'm not endorsing it, I've never bought it, and I've never tried to reload primers. Just putting it out there for discussion.
  11. Big man syndrome. It's the same reason my 225 lb and 215lb Mastiffs aren't shy or fearful and thus aren't as dangerous as some smaller breeds. They're protective and territorial without going off on strangers. They'll position themselves between members of my family without lashing out at the UPS or mailman. I think I have a little of that. As a bigger guy, I've never really felt threatened or fear of other men. Right or wrong, I've always felt like I can take anyone out. But I see my future. I've watched my father, a big guy, go from strength to elderly and feeble. So I see my future. Firearms are an equalizer. Without them, small and weak people have no hope against those who are younger, bigger, and stronger. With a gun, the smallest female can take me out.
  12. The NRA seems to have been more focused on NRA employees and officers than on defending the second amendment. I'm a little disgusted right now. ...I think I threw-up a little in my mouth just now. I feel like I'm in act one of some dystopian movie.
  13. Well isn't this a fine mess we have right now. So much for my life membership.

  15. I fight all gun legislation, to the best of my ability. But half my family (wife's half) are Fudds. As long as you don't ban their hunting rifles and shotguns they don't care. They think me and my black rifles are kind 'extreme'. Even though I've showed them how utilitarian and useful they are to hunt hogs and deer. (.308, 300blk, and 458 SOCOM). They may not have pretty furniture like their rifles and shotguns, but they perform well, clean up well, and can take a beating.
