  1. End of Watch: Gone but never forgotten

    We have MS13 in our little town. They started being a problem about 15 years ago. Our law enforcement didn’t seem interested in getting a lid on it so a group of local hillbillies convinced them that staying away from our people and property was in their best interest. I imagine their bosses did not see the advantage in pushing the issue so their numbers have remained small and quite since. Everyone still keeps a close eye on them though, gotta keep the range cards up to date and they make it easy with their ego stroking spray can art.
  2. Winchester P-17, My 100 Year Old War Horse

    The royalties were paid on the stripper clip feature of the ‘03, at least that was what was agreed on. True the 03 used most of the features of the 98 it was officially a Springfield Armory design. That royalties issue with the 03 is a glaring example of how the big banks ( Rothchildes) already controlled the worlds governments. Insane to think we sent money to the enemy that was killing our soldiers. And this continues into our time, ie the plane loads of cash sent to iran......
  3. That's a way different ejector arrangement than I have seen in the past. My Sig 716 has double ejector but they are fairly close together.....and didn't help the jamOmatic any either. PSA is definitely becoming a force in the big frame AR market!

    I don't think it's possible either, that is as inexpensive as they come. Worst case you need a different trigger and barrel and even then it would be as cheap as you can build! I shoot a bunch of S&B ammo, cleanest for the money I have found. I just shoot iron sights on my 300 BO and have no problem hitting center of a 12 inch plate at 100 yards. When you getting the can?????
  5. Armalite 2-Stage National Match Trigger set

    They have changed up, some basic models come with a cheap single stage now, they haven't done a good job of spelling this out lately. I'm not sure they still have either the NM or the combat trigger they used to.

    Welcome from Iowa, via Mississippi!
  7. Armalite 2-Stage National Match Trigger set

    Take a look at the LaRue MBT trigger, great trigger for the money, every bit as good an the SSA and cheaper; https://www.larue.com/products/larue-tactical-mbt-2s-trigger/ Several around here have one or more, I have three myself.
  8. Winchester P-17, My 100 Year Old War Horse

    I have some saddle soap so I’ll use that, might have to find instructions on setting it back up
  9. Winchester P-17, My 100 Year Old War Horse

    I assume it’s original but I’ve never done the research to confirm it. It is in supprisingly good shape, I have not treated it but probably should. What should I use?
  10. extractor spring upgrade

    I have had good results with the Armalite setup, uses a plug and an O ring. I always see an extra bit of brass shavings when a rifle is new but that goes away eventually.

  13. A-TACS AU , it's not black........

    I might just take you up on that Brother! Gotta make sure it shoots decent first, don't want to waste time on a dud. Who knows when I will get back to it but I'll give you a heads up for sure.
  14. Finished mocking up a build with A-TACS AU receivers and furniture. Dust cover won't stay closed so I have a Strike Industries FDE cover on order since they are adjustable, should match better than black anyway. This is my first build dealing with a delta ring, turns out none of my barrel nut wrenches will work so I am waiting on a magpul armorer's wrench so I can finish it off. D Wilson BCG, LaRue MBT trigger, 1-7 twist 16 inch barrel from JSE surplus, Magpul furniture, and DPMS receivers. Undecided on optics, red dot or one of my Bushnell 1-6.5's. Gotta see what Brother Jacob can do for a matching sling as well.
  15. This old war horse hit 100 this spring, barrel has a 3-18 date on it. I've only shot 20 rounds through it but it held 2 MOA at 100 yards, bore is nice and shiny. This one escaped being refurbished and sits like it did when it came home from WWI, as the story is told. Finish is worn all around and the stock has enough wear to obscure any stamps except the odd W in a protected location. Always felt the P17 got shorted in the fame department due to the '03 being an American design, fact is more of our boys used these P-17's than any other rifle. I bought it from an old man that said his father brought it back with him. It was used during the depression to put venison on the table then put in a corner of a closet till it was sold to me. The dust was thick but it had been oiled well when put away so it cleaned up just fine for my taste. If only the old war horse could talk......
