  1. I'd be more concerned that he was advertising that he has "assault" weapons. It takes one organized gang to gather intel by following, watching, and then taking your stuff when your away. Sorry about that, but I'm cautious about advertising. Mike
  2. I've wondered if anyone has had Bill Springfield work on their 308AR triggers? For less than $50 you get stock to very crisp breaks. Just wonderin'. I have not, but have several sets of 308/5.56 triggers laying around, and would consider having Bill work on them. His URL is triggerwork.net .
  3. Sorry I've been off for awhile. All hips are now bionic, and working a new gig in the department. Since '82 I have been Army MP for 6 years, and then into Law Enforcement with the Sheriff's Office, here in Ohio. I do not plan on retiring, I'm only 48 and feel like the best years are coming up. I may change my mind in another 10 years, but I love interaction (good ones) with the public. Especially if I can make an impact on our future adults. Be safe. Mike
  4. My vote will always be FA. I sold my first build back in March and I forgot the buyer emailed me pics of the targets. The orange targets are at 100yds, and theother with the quarter are 150 yds. I wish I would have shot her at least once! He claims the 150 was at a rapid pace, hence the disparity, I guess....
  5. From what I gather reading everyone's posts, I think the answer is in the original post, and briefly touched on later. He has an Oracle "7.62" and is firing .308 rounds through it. Might want to rechamber for .308... Mike
  6. I envy you. There are plenty of hogs in Wayne and they're moving out to the outskirts. Kill as many of those nasty things as you can. If you need ammo, stop by and I'll give you some more. My kids sports are in full swing and the only thing I'm collecting is sunburns on a lightly haired scalp! I'm just awaiting one poor hog with bad timing to hit my neighborhood! Good luck, let us know how it goes.
  7. I totally agree on getting the tools and doing it yourself. I purchased a DPMS 4 rail for my AP4, and bought the sight tool, combo wrench from Brownells. It's pretty straight forward. If not sure, study several videos to get a feel for how the weapon works. The one I use most is Midways AR-15 video, but you can use the free ones offered by Brownells also. Just pay attention to how things go together.
  8. That's great shootn there! <thumbsup> Nice tight group at 200, have you tested for distance yet? It would be intresting to see how you group at 600. I wish I had those young eyes again. Keep it up!
  9. Has anyone used one of these optics yet? I have one on backorder from DGS Arms. It seems to be simple, put the battery in and turn it on. The big thing is that you leave it turned on, and that the battery can last for 3 years. I don't know if it will stand up to the 308ar or just keep it on the 5.56, just can't find enough info on which one to use it on.
  10. Nope. Couldn't even tell you where it is. I've been looking for an outdoor range for my rifle, but haven't found one yet.
  11. I'm just a smidge north in Canal Winchester. Been living in Ohio all my life except military time. I'm mostly from Amish country,but transplanted here in the late 80's. Mike
  12. Well, I meted out a little revenge, a local shop here had Bushy 5.56 lowers for $99, so I bought it in hopes of raising a smaller baby from the fire. Can never have to many projects awaiting, it's just a matter of getting motivated to finish it. Plus I have converted another to the 308 realm!
  13. Well, taxes came a callin' from last years stupid decision to cash in an old retirement fund and use it to build my 1st 308. I put like $2600 into it and never got to fire it :'( Ended up selling it to a fireman, and I hope he gets to enjoy it more than I did. Let's see if I can attach a pic here,
  14. I have both the Timney and Gold. They are both comparable, but the Gold just has a "hair" better feel to it. The Timney is on CQ rifle, and the Gold on the Long Range build. So both have different purposes, but feel about the same. Although for the price I should love the Gold alot more! ;)
  15. It will take a million years more to change that DNA! Poor thing has to live like they know something...
