  1. something I might have missed as I did read through rather quickly... But what is the twist rate on the barrel? Another quick side note... after the index pin is seated, drop some red loc tight around it and let it cure. it will help keep it in place a little extra reassurance to lock down the barrel extension from coming off, even though it's torqued on at around 200#.
  2. As each vender is different, and not all pins or holes come out the same... unless you find a tech in a service and repair department that would actually stop his day to physically check a set of pins, it's going to be a crap shoot. Something that I might suggest is... call someplace like ArmaLite and tell them you would like a set of NM (national match) pins for your .308 rifle. The ArmaLite NM pins are oversized usually mic out around .277 - .291. I know, I know... that .014 can mean a lot sometimes. But off the top of my head this is as close as I can get ya.
  3. Yes it is a "B" series. (AR-10 A4) AR - Armalite 10 - Refers to the size (could have been .308/7.62, .243, .300 RSUM) A4 - usually meant it was a flat top with a collapsible butt stock. The mag catch is perfectly fine for the M14 and the Gen II mags. The current bolt stop might not work properly with the Gen II mags, but it will work fine with the M14 converted mags. I will check when I get home to see if I have another newer AR10 bolt stop you could swap out real easy.
  4. That right there was a brief run where they actually had the muzzle brakes pressed on. As for the bolt stop, that's an easy upgrade and I might even have one.
  5. Anodized ones are easier to spot, but even the stainless steel you can see at the right angle.
  6. Just from what you have described... this is an early "B" version. No forward assist. The bolt stop was shorter due to the converted M14 magazines had a spring loaded plunger in the follower to trip the bolt stop. So it would need a newer one to use the GEN II mags. Tech Note 66 Tech note 71 On that year, the muzzle brakes were pinned on due to the "assault weapon ban" at the time. Most likely it might have two (2) cross pins OR is pinned and welded at the 6 o'clock position. If it is, you will see a small circle that has been blended into the brake itself to hide the pinning. If you have pictures, I might be able to tell you more about it, with the exception of the year made.

  8. I know this pic is of the M16, but you get the idea. If you zero at one distance and only move it out a short distance, the bullet itself is still on the upward angle of it's flight. As in the military, the zero at a simulated target representing 300m at 25m away. Because the trajectory of the bullet is at the same height at 25m as it is at 300m. anything in between, you learn to aim lower to be able to hit center mass. So you zeroing at 50 and moving to 75, yes your bullet is going to be on the high side.
  9. I've always use the laser from the bore and adjust the reticle to the dot then fire for effect after removing the laser.
  10. Here's another spin on the oil thing... Iraq is getting ready to become it's own country again with less restrictions and stuff. So their major export from Iraq is oil... with Saudi oil being down, this gives Iraq a chance to get theirs moving again get more out the door and get some revenue coming back it to the country. It boosts their economy, they start importing things from other countries, it's a win win situation for them. I sorta want this to happen, so I can say fork it and retire.

    Well ****

    Yeah... what he said. It would entail entirely to much pain and suffering to try and do this on your own, plus, you'll get a new barrel out of the deal. With out a set of gauges, you don't really know for sure if it's the chamber or the barrel extension. Chamber.... easy, check, and ream to proper size or scrap if too big. Extension... pain, the barrel is already been drilled for a gas hole, now that index pin in the barrel extension needs to stay inline with that hole. So now you would have to loosen it, shim it, and re tighten to at least 150 lbs ft torque. with all keeping the pin and hole inline.
