Just Getting Started

Just Getting Started (2/5)



  1. Bump. These are great triggers, I've used them in the past to great success, just doesn't work for my current build.
  2. Picked this up for a KP-15 polymer lower before doing my due diligence to see if it would fit. It does not. $150 FTF/shipped/dead dropped
  3. I picked up the lower and have hit my first snag: the CMC trigger unit I got doesn't fit due to the way it's shaped or something. Trigger's going in the classifieds if anybody's interested.
  4. I don't particularly feel strongly one way or another about AR-style rifles. I've built, and shortly thereafter sold, a few over the years because they just don't do anything special for me. Brownell's currently has the KE Arms polymer lowers on sale, and since they are potentially being sued into oblivion by a hostile entity, my terrible friend Jim Beam convinced me the other night that I needed one before they're gone. Now I have a lower on the way with no idea of what to turn it in to. I have a 5.56 AK so the obvious choice would be a 5.56 AR, but that's what I always get bored of relatively quickly. My other issue is that other than maybe once or twice a year on a buddy's land, all of my shooting tends to be at an indoor range. I know a relatively short rifle can be accurate/effective out to a few hundred yards but if I'm mostly just putting holes in a paper target 25yds away max I don't see the need for a 22" Precision Sniper Weapons System. My current plan is a .300BLK SBR, but because I don't want the ATF to kill my dog I'm not going to order that upper until the Form 1 is approved so I have 1-5 months to be convinced to do something else. Given a blank canvas other than Fixed Stock Lower, what would you build?
  5. Somebody on another forum mentioned recently that they found G43 frames for sale for their compact build, and I read somewhere that the G48/43x slides would fit and function on the 43 frame; also Shield Arms released their 9 round 43 magazine, just in time for me to decide that that the 48 slide/43 frame combo would make a good summer carry choice. So for only the cost of the G43 frame, shipping, transfer, 2 OEM mags to use while I waited for the Shield mags to restock, 2 Shield mags and a metal mag release, I ended up with a gun that is maybe 1/4" shorter than the G48 and holds 6 less rounds
  6. I bought one of these about two weeks before the OP posted this one and I love it, definitely pick this up if you can
  7. I have a 48 that I carry almost daily with Shield Arms mags and love it. I think the 43x is the more popular choice but personally I don’t see the appeal of a full size grip with a short barrel. I do however really like the “single stack” Glock frame, I shoot them better than any of the larger-framed glocks I’ve owned.
  8. Bump and price drop. Going out of town next week and want some extra spending money, somebody buy this thing
  9. It’s about a 1/2” shorter in both grip and barrel length, and maybe 1/4” wider. Here’s a decent comparison.
  10. Up top. Make an offer if you’re interested, let’s work out a deal
  11. Package includes the FN509C, Holosun 507C, Streamlight TLR-7, and holster from T5 Custom Kydex that I added a DCC Monoblock to. Bought it to have something other than my G48 to carry and ended up never carrying it...whoops. Put a couple-three hundred rounds through it of both practice and carry ammo with zero issues. Pretty good trigger for a striker-fired gun too. In the box: Gun Two magazines, a 12-rd flush fit and a 15-rd with grip sleeve Extra backstrap (not sure if it's larger or smaller and couldn't figure out how to remove the old one, so) Padded zipper folio case All optic mounting plates and screws and whatnot Manual, other paperwork, nanny lock, etc Also have all the mounting hardware and extra screws for the Holosun and all the attachment keys for the light. My original purchase receipt was also in the box and my cost not including the holster was over $1150, I'll let the whole deal go for $850. If for some reason you don't want the Holosun you can get everything else for $650. Not going to part it out otherwise. Thanks for looking! Edit: forgot to say, FTF only in the Nashville area and surrounding counties.
  12. I got my IBM carbine a couple years ago for a S&W model 19 and $250 cash, which felt a little high at the time but I’ve always wanted an IBM carbine. Combine that with the Chinese SKS in a tapco stock I paid over $400 for ~18 years ago and you get a good picture of what kind of sucker I am for what I want
  13. Market share and parts availability would be my guess.
  14. Gotcha, yeah I try to avoid it as well. Came across the m85 marked as used but looked brand new, had a few mags and a couple accessories for 75% the cost of a new one
