Re: Picked up another 10/22

Very nice. I have been eyeballing those. I have three takedowns now. Actually two of them I bought for my kids. Tactical Solutions makes a lightweight heavy barrel kit that I have also been eyeballing. I may go that route. I have a non-takedown 10/22 that I have modified so heavily that only the rec...

Re: Single Stage Vs Dual Stage Triggers: What’s the Differen

A single stage trigger has the same pull weight throughout its entire movement until it breaks. A two-stage has a "takeup" stage where the trigger moves pretty easily until it gets to the second stage. From there, more pressure is required and the travel is usually very short from this point. I pref...

Re: Another brass question 45 ACP this time

I think the small primers were a product of the shift to "lead free" primers. Some of the lead free loadings are using small primers now. I just sort them out and put them in a separate ziplock. Maybe I will use them someday, but probably not.

Re: EOtech RUH ROH

Interesting. I'll have to play with mine some this winter and see what happens. My XPS2 is on the house gun, so a 4MOA shift is still only like a half inch, and with the big glass, I really don't think there's anything faster at that range other than a shotgun. The TLR2G underneath is a pretty good...

I think I asked this already, but can't remember if you responded or not. Are you going to be lacquer coating your brass?

Re: Primer Pockets - How clean do they need to be?

The question was about 45 ACP. I have been reloading for a while now and have bought a wet tumbling system that uses stainless steel pins. I decap the brass before tumbling and the pockets come out looking like new. I like that I don't have to clean them manually. I did quite a bit a looking into th...

Re: bought 5.7 ammo RECENTLY?

I just got notice that my 2-1/2 year old backorder for 12 boxes of SS197 from Brownell's is shipping. WOW! Good thing is... they gave me the old price of $18.05/box.

FN FiveseveN on American Rifleman TV

Anybody see the story on FN on the American Rifleman TV show yesterday? They talked about the FiveseveN, the 5.7x28 round, and the PS90. It was interesting. The FiveseveN had a silencer on it.

So where do I get a factory threaded FN barrel?
