Well, I just got back from the range, showed the problem to the guy working there, took it down stairs, came with with a new spring and the gun worked fine for an additional 200 rounds. Apparently some of the coils on the small-spring were blocked and would not fully retract the slide. The slide release was also bent, so the gun-smith bent it back into shape. Now the gun works fine, and the gun smith did the work for free.

Well, that was easy. When I recieved the gun I noticed there was no paint on the internal slide parts, where you apply oil. I wonder if this gun was shot, had a problem, and someone swapped it out and thought they'd mail it to me. The two I bought at the same time had serials that were nowhere near each other. No more peculiar metal-shavings either, but the slide has a groove in the bottom from the slide lock.

Oh well, my gun works now.

So does anyone (preferably in Illinois) want a Mossberg Plinkster Tactical? $200 bucks with hard case and 25rnd magazine (includes original 10rnd).

Picked it up in a combo deal for a Sig 1911/22 (rebadged GSG 1911 .22)... which is actually damn fun to shoot

Yes. Would you be willing to ship to an FFL?

I can, assuming they can accept from a non-FFL holder. Should ship well in the hardcase with just a cardboard wrapper.

Is it worth shipping/FFL cost though? They are like 300 new.

Probably not. I thought they were more expensive.

Going to a gun store tonight to see what catches my eye. I just got another bonus check, so I'm buying something.

So the take down on this Sig/GSG .22 is quite simple. It is exactly like a 1911 with a pin trapped by three take down lever and one screw. Adds a few seconds more and then cleans like a1911.

I need to get more magazines for it, really fun.22 to shoot so far.

Gun store I went to didn't have squat for inventory that wasn't typical hunting rifles. Gonna have to try another one until I find something.

I'm super jelly.. Have been lusting over a 300blk for months now. Soon . . .




Speaking of AR's, I had my very first AR failure yesterday. Took my girlfriend to a local range for her first time shooting and ran a magazine through my lightweight build, handed it over to her for a few rounds then offered it to a guy and his 11 year old boys. Two shots from the father and it stopped operating. Tried to charge the rifle and the bolt wouldn't operate, so I broke it open to have the bolt and charging handle operate smoothly but the buffer wouldn't compress. Tried with my finger to depress it into the tube and only had it move once. Attempted to depress the retaining pin and it was also stuck! Haven't had time to tear it apart and see what's going on but I'm wondering if my buffer experiment failed afterall?? Used an A2 buffer tube, Carbine buffer and rifle buffer spring...

Might post pictures if I ever get back home to strip it..

Possibly had a pin walk out of the buffer? Been changing weights on them?

What model suppressor did you get/ what was the cost/ How long did you have to wait for it to be released? I think I'm going to pull the trigger on a 30cal archangel to do double duty on my .308 and .300WM.

They've got a groupbuy on snipershide until Oct 1 . $600, then of course the $200 tax stamp.

Listen to the video with subsonic rounds

Never messed with the weight on this carbine buffer, but I've been meaning to swap it out for the Rifle buffer and see what really changes. Have read a couple different articles on springs/buffers/weights and all but I'm curious on first hand observations. This might've been a good test..

It is a SoundTech Black Star (Yankee Hill now) for $600 - "if" all had gone right the first time, it should have been only 3 months - instead it took me 4 years to finally get this one in my hands. Normal turn around time currently 6mo+

Made it by home for a few minutes last night and decided to crack open my rifle:



Something, Somehow, Someway created 2 very large burrs on the mouth of my buffer tube causing the buffer to become stuck! It wouldn't rest against the retaining pin or compress because of this! Get this, it's a Colt Buffer tube, Colt Buffer spring, and Colt buffer!

Three minutes with a Jewelers file and the mouth is smooth again, bolt cycles smooth as silk. I'm very confused as to what could've caused it???

That oil filter adapter is pretty cool...but completely precludes the ability to use iron sights.
