  1. How's everyone doing?

    I see the Bliss system for that Tommy gun , I believe Dillon makes a better system to replace it , it doesn't break , we had an original 28 & that thing would break & we found , I think it was Dillon , been a long time & I don't remember if it was one piece system or two parts , like I said its been thirty years . Nice & a lot of fun with Drums .
  2. 17 dead in Florida School shooting

    Put your tin foil hats , its starting . https://bigleaguepolitics.com/mother-exploited-shooting-survivor-turns-cnn-vip-anti-trump-activist/ https://www.infowars.com/david-hogg-holds-anti-gun-interview-4-hours-before-shooting/ https://www.infowars.com/video-shooting-survivor-says-police-firing-blanks-for-drill-before-rampage/
  3. Tightening the Gas Cylinder on M1 Garand

    The Rifle shot pretty damn good for my old eyes to begin with , but when you find an issue with an old Firearm , its needs to be taken care of . I can't wait to check it out , thing is , my next range trip is already full of stuff to do & I may not even take the M1 with me , but I go just about every week so no big deal .
  4. Lord give me strength...

    What no photo's , are you new here ?
  5. Guidance requested on a modification

    I was referring to those break away alignment pins for setting up the GB . Pinned A2 sight types are the most secure of all GB's & the Geissle is also right up there . There is data that any pinned or pressure on the Barre ( especially light weight bbl's. ) can effect the inside of the Barrel , slight bulging & could effect accuracy , though I don't believe it would be much for a Combat or Defensive weapon , but them Match guys think of everything . Its why I use only Clamp on Gas Blocks , but not for match shooting , I just believe they surround the Barrel & evenly distribute clamping pressure around the circumference of the Barrel , instead of one or two pin points .
  6. Can't catch a break

    Yep, I buy them in ten pak's
  7. Guidance requested on a modification

    I use only Clamp on GB's & some have been on for ten plus years & no issues , they both work if installed correctly . That Pin thingy is a great idea , but I have done so many , its second nature to align them .
  8. Windham Weaponry AR10 Range Report - First trip

    Depends on how far out the Screw holes & HG are , but it should work . On the screw for the Hand Guard ? If you use Blue Loctite , use a very very small amount < like the head of a pin , there is Loctite for small screws , I think its Purple , I will have to look up the Number .

  10. Can't catch a break

    Your photo's are fine & if you say its welded & pinned , I believe you , it just looks like its normally screwed on with a Crush washer & as Robo stated , why the Crush Washer if its pinned & welded , makes no sense unless they wanted to have a spacer for some reason . Just use a Dremel tool or something to grind or File it to let the Gas Block Pass or take it to someone if you dont feel your ready to do something like that yet .
  11. DRT Ammo?

  12. Can't catch a break

  13. Windham Weaponry AR10 Range Report - First trip

    Its the Rail Spec's from one Upper Receiver to another , some it slides right on & some its a little tight , I believe its more the Coating on the Upper or who did it thats the issue , maybe some are thicker then others .
  14. I hate palm trees

    We have a management firm that does all our operations , legal & day to day , I get at least two letters a year from them about it on their monthly inspection . I called them the Yard Gestapo a couple weeks ago about another matter & I'm on the HOA Board . 98 is right , these things pump out dead spiky leaves that will gig you no matter what type of gloves you have on or how you handle them .
  15. Need Help

    That's interesting . Makes one wonder . Good quick CS though .
