  3. Thanks for the Welcome. I wouldn’t call the Bison chamber a wildcat but it is slightly different than the SPC II chamber in that the SPC II chamber has a free bore of .100” and the Bison chamber has a free bore of .072” Gun will primarily be used as a hog gun out to 250-ish yards but Cavity Back Bullets is making some MKZ 120 gr projectiles that are said to be really good on white tails.

  4. I am in the process of converting my CMMG MK4 5.56 to a suppressed (Dead Air Sandman S) 16” Recon barrel, 6.8 SPC Bison chamber gun. I will be using a Fail Zero BCG and the gas block is an SLR Rifleworks adjustable block. I know I will be able to utilize the gas block to adjust should I have any cycling problems but I’m wondering about the standard buffer spring/ weight that is currently in the 5.56 setup. If anyone has made a similar build, did you have to change the buffer setup in order to accommodate the heavier 6.8 rounds? Thanks Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Yes, I found some that were very similar but not exactly the one pictured. JP looked the closest to that one. Also kinda of reminds me of an older Sure Fire design Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Yep, you’re right, the prongs on the Vortex do have a slant to them. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Is that on a 556? They have at least two different models, one with exterior grooves and one without. Gonna do some research Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  9. Hahaha.... yessir! This set of pliers was the only victim Now I need to go out and check zero before societal breakdown starts here in New Orleans Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Good ole hack saw and a flat head screw driver did the trick. Was able to get it off without harming the threads or the barrel. I just had to step away from it for and think about it for a second. Thanks for the suggestions fellas! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Next step would be to possibly cut it off with a Dremmel tool?? How hard are crush washers? Have to imagine they are made of fairly soft steel? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Picked up a CMMG .556 from a local guy last year. Got a new muzzle device and when I tried to get the crush washer off of the barrel, it would not fit over the barrel threads. Tried to unscrew it, thinking maybe it was threaded but I can’t get it to thread up. How in the world was this thing put on the barrel without destroying the threads of its not a threaded washer???!!! It will not slide off and I can’t make it screw off!!!! Does CMMG put a permanent crush washer on their barrels?? The device I bought requires shims and manufacture recommends against using crush washers. Needs to be properly oriented to function as intended. At a loss and looking for suggestions. Thanks Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Thanks Greg Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Can regular 5.56 mags be used if the follower is replaced with a 6.5 specific? Think I heard that somewhere but if it’s true, I wouldn’t know where to go for them. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Good call. A buddy recently turned me on to that site but I totally forgot about it. I’m going to get on and sign up for their mailer. Thanks Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
