  1. Wow, this is so amazingly sad. One good dude. It's been a while since I've been around, I never expected to see something like this.

    Hi I'm OD45

    And I have been absent for way to long. RL has become exceedingly way to busy. How is everyone?

    New Guy Thinking of Starting New Build

    It looks like you have a great selection of parts already picked out. Since I wasn't ambitious enough to build my own I can't help you with that. I am looking forward to hearing how yours turned out though.

    Wild hogs and other varmints

    Well, I guess I will just see what I can get into once I get down there. I'm sure with all of the land I will have access to I can call in some coyotes or other varmints. I need to look closer at the laws also. Looks like you guys might have a season for hogs in KY unlike Ohio. They want us to kill any hogs we find, I still haven't found a single hog though.

    Itch to buy ar platform .308

    Have you decided on a price range yet? Once you do that I can give you info on everything I looked at. After about four good months of looking at every make, model and flavor of .308 AR I went with the Sig 716. I read the reviews on every one I could find. I would have probably bought a GAP10 if they hadn't told me it would be at least 10 months to get one but more likely a year. Apparently, military and police orders get bumped to the top when they are received. At the lower end I seriously considered a S&W M&P10. But, it seems they still have quite a few bugs to work out as well as being pretty limited on accesories you can use including rails at the moment. I did keep coming back to the fact I also wanted to give a gas piston system a try and Sigs system looks like one of the best. I know a few guys who have 516's and they love them. I also wanted a gas system so that if/when I get a suppressor I can adjust it unlike the DI systems by most makers. One other large selling point was the use of Magpul Magazines. I have a ton of them in 5.56 and they are flawless and cheap. They are cheap enough that when I ordered my gun I also ordered 10 mags just to put in the safe. I can't tell you how well it shoots yet. I'm still waiting on my ammo, scope and mount orders to come in. I'm sure I won't be disappointed though.

    Sig 716 DMR .308 AR

    After about a month of indecision I finally decided on the Leupold Mark 4 ER/T 6.5-20x50. It has a 30mm tube, M5 Turrets, Front focal plane and TMR reticle. Now that I picked out a scope it's time to start researching mounts. The only thing I know for sure is I want a 20 moa cant. There are so many good choices, I just hope it doesn't take me as long to pick a mount as it did a scope.

    Sig 716 DMR .308 AR

    The Larue mounts are nice, I have been there and checked them out. I'm in the middle of deciding on a scope right now then I will order the mount. I think I am just going to throw an Eotech on it until I find the scope and reticle I want. So many choices. As soon as I think I have found what I want I find something else.

    Sig 716 DMR .308 AR

    I just happened to go into the gunstore and order one at the right time. He could only find one available from any of his distributors. He is a good friend and did a good search for me. It looks like I will be free to shoot it next weekend. I can't wait.

    My SR762

    That looks awesome. I don't see a range report, yet. How does it shoot? Which acog are you using? Reticle?

    Wild hogs and other varmints

    I'm going to be down near Whitesburg, KY over July 4 weekend. Anyone know of any public hunting areas near there where I could put some rounds into a wild hog or ten?

    Sig 716 DMR .308 AR

    I think I am in love. I picked up my Sig 716 DMR today. No, pictures are not available yet. One word: HEAVY! Unloaded it weighs 11.2 pounds. I am guessing recoil will be minimal, I can't wait to get it to the range. The sample target from Sig shows a .88 group size. I will be very happy with that and am sure it will get better after I find the round that fires best in this rifle. My first impression is that this rifle is very well built, quality machining and what feels like a really nice trigger right out of the box. It is definitely in need of a few rags and cleaner. They very liberally oiled this rifle for shipment. It comes with a very nice hard case, carry strap, Harris bipod, magpul miad grip, magpul stock, cleaning kit and a well designed manual. That is one thing manufacturers seem to spend very little time on. I am actually impressed with the details they added to their manual. Future add ons: Magpul PRS stock, surefire socom muzzle brake (I am seriously considering a 7.62 socom suppressor) scope, mount and lots of ammo. Now to my question, I have never mounted a scope on an AR. I want a one piece mount/ring combo and will probably add a canted RMR before its done. What height mount should I get and who makes the best? Pictures to follow soon.

    Mower won't start....

    There isn't fuel pump that I know of on this mower.

    Mower won't start....

    Yeah, the first thing I tried. Replaced the filter and pre-filter.
  15. Any of you guys good at getting small engines going? I have a Briggs and Stratton engine on the mower. Engine Model # 31d707-0232-e1 When the problem first started I removed carburator and cleaned it out, reinstalled and it would run till I shut it off and then couldn't get it started again. So I would mess with the carburator, yes, just take it off spray it down reinstall and it would run. I then found I could just empty the bowl, start it up and it would run. Until I shut it off again of course. So, I finally rebuilt the carburator. No change. So, I have now replaced everything I thought might get it going. New fuel line, new fuel filter, brand new carburator and I still can't get it started. I pulled the spark plug today to also ensure I was getting good spark. It had great spark. The bowl has two wires that looks like it works a little needle from the bottom of the bowl. I don't know anything about this style of carburator as I haven't seen it and I am kind of wondering if those wires aren't part of the problem. Anyone have any ideas for me? I am about ready to apply high explosives and the grass isn't getting any shorter.
