  1. I have used some for several months. I've used it with a couple different style 9mm bolts. I was skeptical in the plastic ejector and even spoke with the manufacturer about it. They explored the possibility of pinning a metal ejector but the plastic was already so thin that creating a spot to pin a metal ejector made the area that held the pin even weaker. They claim you can get 10,000 or so rounds before the ejector fails, which spread amongst say 5 mags is alot of rounds. I don't see this replacing dedicated lowers, because once you've bought enough mags/adapters you can infinitely surpass the overall cost of a dedicated lower. However, someone that doesn't want to knock out a bolt catch for a full auto lower, or SBR to put in some type of 9mm block it's a great idea. As far as the manual of arms, they recommend locking the action back with the mag in, then removing the mag, then then visually/tactically inspect the chamber, which is opposite of everything most people have been taught. That can be off putting for some people but for me just tinkering with it isn't a big deal. They offer a CMMG model meant to work with their radial delay blowback system that has its own ejector which acts just like a 566. Basically they cut the ejector off of the mag. CMMG looks like they partnered with them to offer mag combos and complete rifles. I think they're called ARC. https://www.cmmginc.com/9-arc/ I've had about 1,000 rounds with no issues but i've read where people had had issues with certain style bolts. Mine is a PSA i paid $250 for a complete upper. Some (BOLTS) are cut just slightly different than others. Some of them have to "break in" before they work reliably.
  2. My guess it that it has to do with Vista trying to sell Savage.
  3. I did it to a carbine gas system that I put a longer FF handguard on. The main reason is because the barrel wasn’t parkerized where they drilled the holes for the pins. I figured it would be better to have the pins in there not exposing the bare metal to air. Also as someone mentioned its never going to work loose like a set screw could. I just hit it with some gun blue, then painted it exhaust header paint. You weren’t going to see it so it didn’t have to be pretty.
  4. this is misleading. if Your local gun shop is selling these as anything other than blem I would start shopping somewhere else. Here’s a pic from an email from the distributor in question.
  5. Just to play devils advocate, since Glock's technically only have a one year warranty. Is it possible he was trying to sell a Davidson's gun? They charge more than other distributors but they offer a warranty. http://www.galleryofguns.com/about/terms.aspx
  6. There's kit you're supposed to get that has the right length screws and a plate that covers up the bottom side of the optic where it overhangs off the edge of a Glock.
  7. I've been considering one of these for backpacking. http://gunfightersinc.com/?page_id=251
  8. I can't believe that guy is still in business. Hope you guys have fun though.
  9. Happens every years at Christmas. Toys, last year it was Yeti cups.
  10. Right, I'll do that right when I don't have to pay taxes for someone's else's kids to go to public school since I don't have any.
  11. Yeah, because you're not using the services that the state taxes provide. I'm not about taxing people to death but you should be paying a "fair" amount for the legitimate services the government provides. They should actually revisit the gas tax because if you drive a hybrid or an electric, you're using the road just as much as the guy that drives a truck yet you're not contributing to the upkeep of the roads.
  12. If it were mandatory to pay sales tax on Internet purchases I'm sure it would level the playing field for the LGS. The LGS is already at an almost 10% disadvantage. I doubt you guys are paying your sales tax on your internet purchases.
  13. http://www.americanrifleman.org/articles/2015/8/18/colt-s-snake-guns/ It's about why the value of Colt's is high right now. (Someone got pissy before when I posted a link and didn't explain what it was about because they didn't want to click on it).
