Post the last firearm related thing you bought!

Recommended Posts

My last firearms related purchase was a few boxes of 45-70 for the Henry I got a few weeks ago.

didnt necessarily buy it...buuuutt

 

my main carry G19 ended up missing the set screw for the rear sight... TruGlo TFOs

Ive had the gun for 6 years or so, sights for 6 years or so... I sent an e-mail to the company to purchase a new set screw and they immediately emailed me back and told me that they wouldnt let me pay for it, that they would be  happy to pay for it.... Blown away with the customer service.... anyways.... got it today

Not exactly "Firearm Related"...but it is Self Defense related and to quote Marshall Chuck Haggard (Agile Training and Consulting), it's a civilian self defense tool for use "Between a harsh word and a Gun".

ASP Palm Defender OC spray. Adequate responsible training is highly recommended to understand the capabilities and limitations and appropriate use. A bit of exposure prior to using is also highly recommended. I've "caught" in an area spraying  at work on well more than one occasion...

Options are always a Good Thing! :up:

 

The Monkey Fist is simply another option.

Been looking at one of these since they announced them.  Just found a deal I couldn't pass up.

I got it in 260 Remington.  It's a Tikka T3X TAC A1.

I've been updating some of my gun maintenance tools, bought a few punches, more on that later, a gun mat and a gun vise.  I looked at three different ones, the old Tipton, the new Tipton, not impressed BTW, and finally settled on the Lyman vice and mat.  Its lightweight since its only for light smithing, cleaning and trigger work but it holds much tighter than the new Tipton at a much cheaper price.  The mat, I like it, it has built up areas to keep screws and springs from rolling off, something which always happened on my standard mat.

Ok, so on the punches..I bent a few trying to take a barrel off my S&W M&P flattop.  Darn tapered pin just would not give, beat the heck out of it with all the punches I had.  Finally got a set of nail setters from Lowes and the middle one worked, was damaged a bit but worked.  The issue was that it had a round head and just would not keep a punch centered.  The nail setter has a hollow end, so it stayed on the pin.  Two taps and it was out, of course by then I had clamped it down to let me have both hands free so it received the full force of the hammer, though I only gave it light/medium swings.

I have that vise and a Tipton. I like the Lyman vise better for most things. I have ruined several punches on taper pins, and wound up using a nail set as well.

With the talk of punches it reminded me I found this nice brass USA made punch set for roll pin removal a couple of weeks ago at a flea market. I never had a dedicated punch set for roll pins but I knew if I ever had a punch slip and mess up a finish on one of my guns I would regret not buying the right tool for the job.

Those are good for putting them in too, once you get them started. I have used mine a lot. I also have small set of starter punches. Between the two, roll pins are a breeze.

20 rds of Remington  Match Grade 5.56.... AT $1.35 A POP! But if I can hold a tight group at 200 yds it might just convince me to start reloading for that pig of an AR (it just LOVES the wolf 223's in steel case!)
