    Cheap .224 Valkyrie Build

    "...Cheap guns are so much fun!" I have to agree with you. All of my ARs are pretty much "parts guns." I only have one that was relatively expensive, and that was for the time. A Colt 6920 bought years ago at retail. The others pieced from many different sources. But sounds like you are far more experienced than me. I will say that your comment is especially true for me on the pistol level. I have spent from 250 to 1500(once, and it ate at me so much I sold it. lol) Anyway, I seem to get just as much enjoyment from my cheap Rock Island 1911 as my Sig. Both shoot far better than I'm capable of, so I just keep at it until I find I'm just as bad with either one.
  4. Right? Somebody is getting a deal.

    Cheap .224 Valkyrie Build

    So there I was, reading all the reviews on the new .224 Valkyrie cartridge and thinkin' to myself that it could be a great round to play with. Well, I crawled into Ma's office lookin' as pitiful as I could but she saw right through me (after 46 years of "Wedded Bliss" it ain't easy to sneak anything past that girl!) and asked what I wanted to buy. So after beggin', whinnin', and pleadin' ... er, negotiating ... she allowed me $350 for Christmas and I was off and running! Picked up a Bear Creek complete upper in .224 for a whoppin' $225 (delivered), an Athlon NEOS 4-12x40 scope for $110 (delivered), and pulled an old cantilevered scope mount out of a Junque box. Ta Da, $15 bucks under my limit so I spent $14.99 for a box of ammo! The upper came equipped with BCG and .224 Valkyrie bolt, 22" SS Fluted barrel, SS birdcage, 17" M-Loc free-float forend, low profile gas block and rifle length tube. The scope was half the price of a lot of Wally World Blue Light Specials and yet, after a thorough test procedure, I found it to be extremely accurate, very clear, and frankly, one of the best value-for-the-money scopes I've ever come across (and I have owned scopes from $25 to $2,500). OK, so how does it shoot? Well, I mounted it on my Bushmaster lower, slithered out to my range, bore sighted it and put 3 in the black at 25 yards, turned around and fired three 3 shot groups at 100 yards, 1-1/4", 1-1/2", and 1"! Yee Ha! Moved over to the 200 yard bench and shot 3 groups 2-1/2", 2-1/2", and 3"! The cartridge was designed for the 90gr "long for caliber" bullets (long throat) and the shorter 75gr loads are not noted for accuracy but my results were a lot better than I expected, especially from a new rifle that had not been broken in. I bought some 90gr rounds and as soon as the rain stops I'm going to try them out, I'll post more info when that happens. Cheap guns are so much fun!

    In their policies page. I've wore their stuff for years but never exercised their policy because I felt I wore it out rather than have it "fail" on me. I read their policy that same way but some people like to push the issue. I hope the hipster movement don't raise prices beyond what I've always been willing to pay.

    for-sale Ruger 308

    Great gun, great price and it was a pleasure to deal with the seller..
  12. I see your point now. Thanks for continuing to elaborate. I feel like there is still a back door here, so I’m not on board, but appreciate the perspective.

    Their stuff looks really nice. Where are you seeing a lifetime warranty? I haven't located that, and even on high end apparel, that seems surprising on clothing.

    wanted Glock 20 or 40

    I've got a 20SF in excellent condition. PM me if your interested. Thanks!
  16. Except for APEX, I can't find any vendors that have mags in stock to sell. Reason I ask, I have six NOS matte plum Izzy 30 round mags I'm wanting to sell. None have ever been loaded or inserted in a rifle. I guess you could call them collector mags but I didn't buy them for that reason. Any idea's on a price? Thanks, Bill

    for-trade Trade 7mm Rem Mag for .270

    Trade for box of Core Lokt 270 150gr. I know I'll be on the losing end of the deal, but I don't need this. If you want to throw in some extra rounds to make a more even trade, I won't turn it down. But it's not necessary. Located in Springfield.
  18. bump for some seriously cool rifles!

  22. Just discovered this place, care of the Farm Bureau magazine. Founded 105 years ago, still using a cutting machine installed in 1918, they are the owners of the Pointer Brand of high performance farming and hunting apparel. Made in the USA from fabric, thread, buttons, and tags sourced from US manufacturers. Lifetime warranty and according to the 4th generation owner, "you have to commit to wearing it because you have to break it in." Now that's real denim! Passing through Bristol? Give them a call to see if factory floor tours running. https://lcking.com
