  1. The bigger challenge is holding the Upper without dinking it up. If you don't have a vice block, or some of the newer hardware like a reaction rod, then you risk twisting the upper receiver. If you are gonna throw the barrel nut away. then you can get by with a pipe wrench. Should be able to get enough bite by shoving the delta ring back, just like you would with an armorer's tool. You gotta get the gas tube out of there first, of course.
  2. I broke my collar bone when I was in high school and it took forever to heal.

    Sounds like DLM is doing fine. I have been thinking about him lately anyway. I'll give him a call next week.

    He is a Facebook friend. Last posted on his birthday on 2-7. He never was real active. I'll ask Gordon.
  5. I'm a huge fan of that BCM handguard. I have one in M Lok and two in keymod.
  6. It's a trap. You vote for a Republican to avoid voting for a Democrat, and wind up voting for a Democrat.
  7. Pretty broad statement there. I have $1000 in the handguard/barrel assembly on one of my Grendels. Got another $300 in the trigger. You can wind an AR up pretty tight if you need to.
  8. Yeah. If it's colored blue, it could usually benefit from a good swarm of locusts
  9. I'm looking at the KY folks that have a permit that's easier than TN, with probably a little less reciprocity acceptance. With constitutional carry now, there's some argument for tightening the Deadly Weapons permit. They probably never will.
  10. You're still gonna need a shotgun. You know that, right?
  11. I have an American Classic Officer. Not a Ruger, but learned something about that size. I bought mine new, and immediately took it to Tim Calhoun for a new properly tuned extractor and some other TLC. I asked him to keep the gun until he got it tweaked out, and had a chance to take it to the range some. He got it running pretty well. His comment was that officers, in general were always gonna be a little persnickety because of the geometry of the feed system. And that commanders and governments are just more reliable. If I had it to do over, I would buy a Commander. If I buy another, it will be a Commander. Now... Tim may have changed his mind since he's now making an officer in 40S&W. More likely his design is a little better than the Colt and clones.
