Re: Brass catcher for AR-57... I thought it was pretty neat.

I cut down a orlite 30 round mag using a dremel. It holds a full 50 round magazine with about an inch and a half of room left in the top, i would think you could probably get close to 75 rounds in it b4 it jams up the action but i haven't tried it yet. Works great though only other thing i had to d...

New to loading for the 5.7 ... any guidence out there?

I've got a PS90 and an AR57 and getting quite a bit of brass saved up ... I've got a Dillon 550 and a shell plate but need dies ... really like the Hornady Custom dies but want to go with whatever works best with my loader. Oh ... and a recipe for a reasonably accurate load If its practical, I'd lik...

Re: Sig Sauer Model 522

I like the looks of the 522, but I'm not really digging the SWAT version. But with the weight, I think I'll pass. Love Sigs. Quality weapons. Maybe I should have stripped the Troy gear off mine to see how much lard it would have trimmed, but I'm loving the M4. Not afraid to drag her anywhere and no...

Re: Sig Sauer Model 522

Is the 522 anywhere near as heavy as the 556? If it is, then I wouldn't want one. Sorry. I loved the 552, but the 556 is just too heavy for me. Old and arthritic don't mix with heavy weapons, no matter how sweet they are. Heavy? I think the original fish gill handguards the 556 had gave it a percei...

New AR57 owner here ...

I've had a PS90 for a few years ... finally picked up the AR57 and I have a couple questions I originally had it on a lower with a collapsible stock, and it seemed to kick harder than a 223 ... I also had a regular AR with me that had a solid stock on it and it shot much smoother ... a little resear...

Re: Sig Sauer Model 522

I've got one ... went with it over the Colt and S&W because of reports of feeding problems with those models, and to be honest I'm kinda board with the AR platform. There have been a few reports of canted front sight bases which I didn't hear about until after I'd already gotten mine ... mine isn't ...
