Re: Building a Mosin Nagant T53

ya, i did something similar i bought T53s for 35$ each. Where did you find a barreled action for 60$? Well it was a barreled action for $45 from a man another store that did work on Mosin's recommended me. I understood $60 for the receiver, barrel, and bolt but apparently I misunderstood over the p...

Building a Mosin Nagant T53

So last week a friend's friend posted on a fb group a parts kit composed of all the parts left over from his T53 after he upgraded to an Archangel stock. I decided to research a bit how much it would cost to order a receiver,barrel, and bolt since it's all that was missing and found them for $60 shi...

Re: Modifying Shotgun rounds

About 2 years back I did an extensive post on modifying regular birdshot loads, and turning them into light buckshot loads. Here is the link: http://www.zombiehunters.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=107&t=101178 The general gist of it was you can make light buckshot loads by pulling the birdshot, and rep...

What kind of shotgun BTW? How tall are you?
It's a Maverick 88 12 gauge and I'm about 5' 10'

Re: Modifying Shotgun rounds

Sounds like a lot of work. Have you tried one of those recoil absorbing but stocks or but stock pads? I want to buy one but I'm pretty tight on a budget due to school and cut hours at work plus since I'm not gonna go quail or rabbit hunting in a while I thought I could put the birdshot to good use.

Modifying Shotgun rounds

So I'm trying to hit the range more often to practice with my shotgun but I need rounds with less recoil since my shoulder isn't liking it much :crazy: Birdshot is not allowed cause it's an indoor range, and I can't find low recoil rounds cheap locally. My idea was to open up the Sparta. 12gauge 2 3...

Re: Whats Your Top Ten Family Vehicles During Survival Situa

What about an eight generation chevy suburban with the Detroit diesel? Comes in 4x4 version with a solid axle so less maintenance in moving parts plus you can find parts for them all the time from auto parts stores to junkyards and even abandoned on some fields. They can come with middle captain cha...

Re: Being shot during civil unrest: When Police goes wild.

Wow man seeing this makes me wish I had the money to buy new plates.
Also I think there is a book online regarding how to make armor plates from ship grade high yield strength steel. It could be heavy but a cheap alternative.

Re: So boss told me to design a new compensator

So the boss liked the design so far gonna add the quick lock system for suppressors then we will 3D print 1 or 2 with our strongest material just to check the looks and fitment one even try running one at the range with some 5.56 rounds just cause it would make a cool video.

Re: Would you buy 3D printed mags?

Maybe AR pistol grips and buttstocks? I'd be interested in more options for fixed buttstocks similar to some of the Magpul items, but at a lower price if possible. IDK if you can print out a buttstock with an adjustable cheekpiece already assembled & ready to go? Yes it's possible. In the Objet Con...

Re: Tips on handling shotgun recoil

Thanks for all the advice guys. Btw I was gonna start with birdshot I was forced into buckshot cause it was the only thing allowed at the range and I couldn't find low recoil buckshot.

Re: Tips on handling shotgun recoil

I had a strong grip on it and well my upper torso is naturally relaxed due to 4 years of parkour. I'm hoping on going to go shoot more once I can restock on ammo.

So finally was able to take my Maverick 88 out to the range with some Remington Express 00 buckshot rounds ( 12 gauge, 2 3/4, 9 pellet) and well it was more than I had bargained for.
