Re: CMMG Bravo AR .22 LR conversion kit

Uh, zantra, the shift was found between a standard velocity rimfire and a high velocity rimfire cartidge. No need to take cut off wheels of any sort to any part of the firearm. Quazi thanks for the review. I'm happy to hear this purchase panned out for you in the long run. I might pick one up myself...

Re: GET NOTIFICATIONS TO WORK!

While I hate the interface, would tapatalk be of any help? I haven't used it for years, hated several aspects of it, so went back to mobile web browsing, but I don't know if it might have a proprietary notification system which works better than the house brand.

Re: SHTF Convoy Driving

Giving this thread a bump because a thought just crossed my mind which many more people have experience with, but I do not, so I'm curious if anything can be learned from it: funeral processions.

Re: Bolt Action: Stock vs Chassis

Magpul makes a stock, same ergonomics to the shotgun stocks they put out a few years back, which I find absolutely hideous. But it's probably the cheapest route for AICS mag bottom metal, and semi adjustable length of pull and comb heights. It's the theoretical light weights that appeal to me, but c...

Re: Kifaru gear pricing

Only way to be sure would be if you had screen shots to compare pricing of specific items over time. I know in the past year they changed at least the frame line up (dropped the "bikini", introduced the "ultralight"). It's possible by adjusting suppliers and purchase quantities they were able to res...

Rifles came in to my FFL in town yesterday. It just so happens that I can probably sneak out of work early today.

I know there was a similar thread a while back, and I know board participation is dwindling. But I want to know what everyone makes out there as a hobby or to sell.

Could be fun to play with different weights for sure, as well as unbalanced weights. Certainly a less lethal way to restrain an escapee with practice.

Great thread. I need another project like I need a hole in my heart, but I really like it. A thought: In Toronto, police auctions sell bicycles online starting at $1.
