  1. The first thing that comes to mind is a single sled magazine follower. For the round things... no idea.
  2. Not sure if anybody knew him or not. We had worked together for a brief time in 2006. In Memorial William Larson Sunday, June 30th, 2019 This morning we received some bad news. William Larson aka Iraqgunz from M4carbine.net passed away. I did not know him well, but had several interactions with him over the years. He was very well known in the industry and very well respected due to his knowledge and demeanor. Here are some words about him from one of his close friends. William Larson of Semper Paratus Arms passed away on Saturday, 29-June-2019. “A Veteran of the US Army and US Coast Guard with 10 years of service to our Great Nation, Will had deployed to Iraq in 2005 in Operation Iraqi Freedom and Enduring Freedom. He served as an Armorer and Instructor for the Department of Defense and well known private military companies. He also worked at highly respected companies such as BCM and SIONICS Weapon Systems. Will is best known for his Armorer’s Courses that he taught across the United States. These courses were universally praised for the breadth and depth of knowledge that he shared. Will’s no-nonsense demeanor, frankness and humor didn’t take long to endear him to people that may have known him by reputation. To those that know him and those that only knew him through the internet forums, his passing is both shocking and devastating. Our hearts are broken. Will had touched countless lives, many of whom he barely knew, that was Will. He helped both individuals and companies and never asked for anything in return. Many companies owe their existence and success to Will and his wisdom and knowledge has benefited many individuals that are completely unaware that the gear they use and trust have Will’s fingerprints on it. His contribution to the industry is immeasurable and he is impossible to replace. His passing is a great loss to his family and to those that know and love him in the industry. As a community, let’s come together and do something for a man that’s done so much for us. The immediate goal is to address the hospital bills and other arrangements for his family. We appreciate your thoughts and prayers and Thank You for contributing to the Memorial Fund.” He left behind a wife and children. They will need some help. If you want to contribute to the fund, visit The William Larson Memorial Fund on GoFundMe.

    I have never heard of these or seen these before today. So I come here to find out if anybody else has and what the thoughts on them are. SCCY pistols
  4. NRA’s Number Two Resigns, NRA Shuts Down NRA TV Chris Cox, the former head of the NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action (NRA-ILA) has resigned his position. Last week, NRA CEO Wayne LaPierre placed Cox on leave and accused the man many believed to be his evenutal successor of having aided in a failed “coup” attempt against LaPierre by former NRA President Oliver North. In the announcement of Cox’s departure to NRA employees, LaPierre thanked Cox “for his service to the NRA.” This latest development follows the announcement by LaPierre that the NRA was shutting down production of its online streaming network, NRATV. The Outdoor Wire has also acquired a communication between the NRA and its former agency Ackerman McQueen in which the NRA’s Andrew Arulanandam “demands immediate delivery of all materials by Section XLC of the Services Agreement, including all Confidential Information (as defined by the Services Agreement).” The letter also says that “if AMc damages or convert the NRA’s property, or if the NRA perceives an imminent risk of the same, the NRA will pursue legal recourse.” The acrimonious parting of the ways has been accompanied by a myriad of charge, counter-charges and lawsuits between the NRA and Ackerman McQueen.

  5. Well, since I know you don't live far from me now, it would be easy to have a get together and build this thing. I have a complete, brand new in a sealed package, ArmaLite lower parts kit for an AR-10B (bolt catch is different) that could be used in the lower receiver. As for putting this thing together... that's easy. I've read a few armorers manuals myself also.
  6. Actually it was good security.... cause it was the security guard that was doing it. Just goes to show ya that greed will get ya every time.
  7. Welcome... Where about in Illinois are ya?
  8. if anyone happens to have any of the rattles that they might want to part with, I would be more than happy to take them off your hands.
  9. greetings from Illinois...
  10. First we need to look at if it is a pinned on sight/gas block or a clamp on sight/gas block. If pinned, not much you can do except change it to a clamp on for better adjustability. Clamp on will need to be checked for the simple one first. Is it level with the upper receiver? check for left and right shift. if not... loosen the gas block, slide it forward, and remove it, look for the carbon spot on the top of the barrel. (the carbon spot will give you an idea of how the gas block is sitting on top) measure the distance from the handguard cap or shoulder to the edge of the gas hole. (some gas blocks might have a shim if on a free float set up) remove the gas block and measure the distance from the edge of the gas block to the edge of the gas hole. As long as the numbers are with in a few .001 (+/-) of each other there shouldn't be a problem there. Notes: use a good set of calipers you trust. for better readings on the holes. insert a drill bit that fits snugly in the hole to measure edge to edge.
