  4. I purchased mine from http://www.edssportshop.com/ You can either call or email them and see if they have any. Or Google Remington 29663 or Remington 5R You should be able to find one locally.
  5. I had purchased one about two years ago. Remington 29663. I've been able to put about fifty rounds thru it to break it in. I really want to find a range in the 600 to 1000 yard distance to see what it will really do. Just google Remington 29663 and see what the results are. I think Remington either had barrels left over from their M24 SWS or they had them specially made for this rifle. If I ever get to the range, I'll let you know what happens.

    Remington 700 recoil pad

    I finally had the time to remove the recoil pad on the Remington 700 5R 308 rifle. It didn't come off as easily as I would have liked. I poked and probed around for screws but none were found. I took a utility knife and proceeded to disect the pad. When it was all over the pad was hot glued to the end of the stock. No screws, nada, only hot glue. It wasn't even inletted to take the recoil pad. It looked like it was ground flat on a belt sander. I hope this isn't the future of Remington. Any cheaper and they might use fun tac or chewing gum or some other way of attaching thongs. Double sided tape anyone? So now it looks like I have my work cut out for me inletting the stock so I can attach the recoil pad properly. While I was at it I took my 870 and looked at the stock. Two screws holding the recoil pad on just like everyone talked about. So I guess the R3 pad will go on the 870 for now.
  7. I have a Reminton 700 5R rifle in .308 and was looking to change the recoil pad to a Remington R3. I lookes at the existing recoil pad and don't see any screws holding it on. Could it be glued on or are the screws hidden? Any help would be appreciated.

    Barrel Replacement

    Depending on what brand of AR 10 you have, sometimes you can find a reasonably priced complete upper and just swap them by pushing out two pins and changing the complete upper in one shot. That way you can have a 16 inch barreled upper and a 20 or 24 inch barreled upper. Look on AR15.com, they have an equipment exchange section that deals with AR 15's, AR 10's and sometimes you can find what you want very reasonably.

    Stove top parkerizing

    Years ago a friend and I were in the part time business of making machine gun simulators. They were either M2 50 caliber or 1919 30 caliber simulators. They were what would be called gas guns, which were propane and oxygen fueled, ignited by a spark plug. While in the process of making these we also did the parkerizing . It was done on stovetop in a basement. There was no exhaust fan so we opened the windows and used small fans to move the air around. The parkerizing solution is very corrosive to aluminum and will pit any aluminum in the area. We used to cover the entire top of the stove with heavy aluminum foil only leaving the burners exposed. Any of the solution spilled or dripped on the stove will stain it. This process can be carried out on a camp stove or outside grill to keep the fumes out of the kitchen. We used stainless steel tanks that were made large enough to put either the receiver or the barrel jacket in to get an even finish.The part about finger prints is very true. You don't want to touch the blasted metal at all with your bare hands. We would use clean cotton rags with no oil on them to touch the parts. After being blasted the parts were wrapped in clean cotton rags to keep then clean and dust free. We didn't oil coat the parts because this only would increase the chance of screwing up the batch, as oil would contaminate the solution and many times ruin the finish.
