  1. I want a lever action rifle, kind of old-school cow boy cool. I just don’t know what caliber I should go with. I don’t have plans hunt with it, but it could happen one day. And it does not need to look like a safe queen. Maybe more like I won it in a game of poker while out on the trail running the cattle. what sayith the wisdom of the lords of the TGO?
  2. I recently inherited a 1907, savage 32. The slide is not working. The safety will not engage. Anybody have a suggestion on how to rectify this.
  3. Greetings all. New to the forum. I am inheriting several long guns and a few handguns and I'm not sure what I need to do to legally possess them. The firearms are listed in a trust, my wife's sister is the executor and has asked me what is necessary to legally take ownership of them. I will be responsible for selling them at some point so that is not the issue now. What is necessary in the state of TN to bring the firearms here (from MN) and legally possess them so they can be sold at a later date. He has had them for many years, most are old - pre 1960. Is there a registration process, or is that only for handguns? I am a longtime gun owner but I purchased my handguns several years ago. My question is centered around legally possessing firearms that were in a trust. The firearms: a pre 1963 Winchester model 70 Super Grade chambered in .270; a Winchester model 61 .22; Winchester model 94 Saddle Ring Carbine in .32WS; Marlin model 60 .22; Henry model H00IV chambered in .17 HMR; a Ruger model GA34 stainless chambered in .357; and a Colt 125th Anniversary Single Action Army .45. Thanks in advance,
  4. I have not fired my P320 for sevreal weeks. I pulled it from the safe and discovered the slide was locked up. Removed the mag and still locked. Everything looks normal but it is locked up tight. Any suggestions?
  5. Can anyone recommend a gunsmith or machine shop in Middle TN? The one smith that will actually return my calls says he can’t help. Thanks in advance.
  6. If you had a built lower, and a stripped Aero Percision XL upper, what would you build it into (think big bore) and why. Assume you already have a 5.56, a 223 Wylde, and a 300BO. And, second to this, how would you deck out the build? Assume it would be custom Cerekoted at a minimum one color. What color would you do? And if you did more that one color, how would you do that.
  7. Just getting into reloading and unsure what powder measure to get. I'm staring with 9mm but want to eventually get into 223/556 and 300 blk so I'd like pistol and rifle options. I got a rock chucker single stage press to start with.
  8. I have a BCM 16 Reece rifle mid length gas system. I've owned it now 4 years or so. It has always threw and 4 to 430 ejection pattern. The only thing j have done to it recently was put a surefire warcomp as a muzzle device and worked great. I took it off about a week ago and reinstalled the BCM Mod o muzzle device back on it. It suddenly starting throwing a 2 to 230 ejection. I changed the buffer spring to make sure it wasn't getting weak and then added a H2 buffer that was 11 grams heavier and sane thing. Also, noticed today some pretty noticeable ejector marks on the head stamp. Any suggestion on what could could cause this. Field stripped the gun done through cleaning checked gas tube and gas block nothing seems really out of place. Any help would be appreciated.
  9. I have never had this happen to me but it did. I bought federal brand ammo for 80 cents which is a lot cheaper than where I am from. However when I went to load clips, all the ammo are mixed brands. As I started to go through the ammo there is 556 and 223 so my question is can a gun store/pawn shop do this? PLEASE HELP ASAP!! THANK YOU!
  10. Please don't tell me to ditch it and get a Remington 1100. I have a few of those and enjoy them as fine guns. I bought the Hatfield SAS Semi-Automatic .410 (Remington 1100 knockoff) realizing it was a budget gun. According to the person I bought it from, it had exactly 6 shells ran through it. The person admitted that it would cycle 3" game loads, but had problems cycling the 2 1/2" target loads. I have fired this gun several times and have found that it will cycle my reloaded 2 1/2" shells, but is unreliable in cycling factory loaded Winchester AA 2 1/2" MAX Dr. Eq. 1/2 ounce #9 shot Target Loads. Often times, it will cycle the first two shells and will fail to put the third shell in the chamber and the bolt into battery. Just for information... the gun is still quite tight and the recoil spring is quite heavy. Possibly, this gun will cycle like a Remington 1100 after two or three boxes of shells have been ran through it. What I'm hoping to find out here, is information from other Hatfield SA .410 owners as to their experiences with this make and model gun, specifically in the .410 version. I have watched some U-tube videos on this gun and the other larger gauges don't seem to have this problem. I'm trying to find out from real Hatfield SA .410 owners if this gun will eventually loosen up and cycle reliably, or if it's a "no go" gun. Thanks in advance for any information that is willingly shared.

  12. Hey there, I was browsing armslist and I came across this ammo posted for sale in my area. I haven't heard much about this ammo but it seems like the ad is saying that this is hard to come by. Has anyone used this ammo in the past? is it worth the hype or is it more of a collectors item? It is hard to find any good information on this online, any feedback would be appreciated! Thanks!

  13. I am looking for someone to thread a rifle barrel and do other work. Any suggestions for someone in the Tri-cities area? Thanks
  14. It's an older European surplus gun im sure, so it's probably a spring issue, but the hammer doesn't stay back after firing a shot.
  15. The pellets are falling straight through my Sheridan blue streak pellet gun. Any idea why or how to fix it?
  16. Am thinkin about red dotting one of my glock pistolas... Gonna use a Holosun 507 plus tall irons... Who do ya recommend to do the machining..? Turn around time... Any other observations...? Thanks in advance... leroy.
  17. I am looking at getting a 22LR pistol to introduce / teach my daughter about handguns (also for plinking as ammo is too expensive at the moment). My local FFL has a used Sig Mosquito Sport for sale. I like the feel holding it and I like Sig pistols. Does anyone out there have experience with this particular handgun? Also, what are thoughts on it's retail value? Thanks, Briggs. Sig Sauer Mosquito Sport 22LR Thoughts
  18. I need some opinions on some items i want to buy without end up wasting money. I need a new holster for my Glock G45 9mm to wear outside the waistline. Maybe something that locks over the back of the slide while in the holster. Any manufacturers i should consider? I need a rifle case for my AR. It has a 16" barrel and 32" total in length. Id like to have enough space for the rifle a side arm and a couole of mags. Ive seen plano, pelican, savior nanuk and case club on amazon. Looking for something sturdy but not something i need to spend a arm and a leg on. Finally im looking to buy a "tactical" magazine ammo box to store my 5.56 mags in maybe 9mm as well. Cant seem to find a quality one, prefer metal instead of plastic. Thanks in advance.
  19. You see all sort of crazy prices on gun boards. So really what is 9mm brass cased reloadable selling for on secondary market: $30.00, $40.00 $50.00 a box?,
  20. I just picked up my first (well, second, since I already bought the .22 LR training analog) “budget AR-15”; a Smith and Wesson M&P15 Sport II with the Crimson Trace CTS-103 on it. I don’t want to go crazy with it, but adding a weapon light a bit closer to the muzzle, gaining a little real estate on the hand guard and having some mounting options would be nice, but that stock hand guard... I was told that if I want to keep it “budget” and stay off the gunsmith’s bench, I would need to work around the stock gas block with the integrated rail, but that options were out there. This is not a brand new model, so I’m hoping someone might have a recommendation for a good hand guard upgrade on this one? Thanks in advance!! Ray

    Kind of obsure question but I figure someone might know the answer. I have a 1962 K38 Smith and Wesson with original wood grips. I want to replace the grips with Crimson Trace laser grips, either LC-306 or LG-207. I was wondering if Smith made changes to the screw placement that would allow or make this impossible? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
  23. So, I’m getting (re)acquainted with firearms a bit late in life; so I want to push forward with the greatest degree of efficiency I can. One training aid that has caught my attention is the Mantis X. Yes, there are plenty of reviews and videos out there, but most seem to be from people selling the product or reviewers who may or may not have received the product free or hold a possible bias. Upon review, I really only see one post on the subject here from, I think, 2018? I’m curious what real world experience some of you may have with this (or similar?) product over time? Have you seen tangible improvement from using the device? Does Mantis X noticeably improve your dry fire sessions? Has there been any value during professional training sessions in conjunction with Mantis X? What are the most beneficial things vs. what functions seem to be a waste of time with Mantis X?E2845304-D495-4A50-9BA6-1F9BF9F72B51.webp Can / should Mantis X be used while taking video of your target, since it doesn’t “know what you are aiming at”? I thank you for your time and experience! Also, if anyone knows a location in the Franklin / Nashville area that can do a demo, I’d be interested in checking this out.
  24. Hi guys. Just wanted to ask a couple of questions tonight. I was at a lgs in Old Hickory just a bit ago, picking up a Taurus pistol. Yeah...laugh all you want. Anyway, got to looking at a couple of rifles and found myself drawn to particular one. A T/C Compass. I think that was the name. Not a big fan of bolt action rifles, nothing against them. Just never gave them much thought. But I like the way it felt. Lop was perfect for me. Price was pretty great also...sub 300. So...what you think, is this a good deal? Good first bolt action? Would be a new caliber for me as well...6.5 Creedmore. Now be kind. I'm seriously thinking about this. I really can't say why. It just calls out. Oh...btw. The Taurus was a Model 608 38/357 ported revolver. LOL! Yep! Another in the Taurus Stable!
