    In the neck.....again.

    I feel many are taking this like an XProducts announcement which is a bit overboard but I completely understand the frustration with some of these large companies that appear to be folding to political pressures. However, Daniel does appear to be trying to help improve a broken system.

    .308 Faxon Barrel Sale

    That's good to hear. I plan on buying one or two this year. They offer great veteran discounts from time-to-time but are always out of stock for the ones I want. They have a nice new matching receiver group that's about to hit the market too.

    .308 Faxon Barrel Sale

    Pretty good sale on this Faxon barrel at JoeBobOutfitters. https://www.joeboboutfitters.com/Faxon-Firearms-16-Medium-Tapered-308-Win-Mid-Len-p/fax-10a810m16nmq.htm?utm_source=JoeBob+Subscribers&utm_campaign=5a0af6c402-03092018_Campaign&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_d85e6c4367-5a0af6c402-287542761&goal=0_d85e6c4367-5a0af6c402-287542761&mc_cid=5a0af6c402&mc_eid=881adec5d6
  4. I'm looking for a Seekins Precision "SP15 stripped forged upper." This is their older model that has now been discontinued. It's a traditional style upper and I'm one for sticking with the same company for builds. The fit and finish tend to be far more consistent this way. Apparently I waited too long for this build. Seekins has moved on and left me behind with newer designs. Thank you

    Boycott X-Products!

    Apparently there are a few other owners and the buyout is underway. How on earth do you even place a value on a sinking ship though? People are irrate about the original statements and major companies already pulled out of selling their products. Seems that they'll have a tough time recovering if it's even possible. I'd start thinking about selling off all those machines right about now. I can't get over bashing your own customer base....moronic!
  6. Skip all the constant bombardment of sale emails and just use the HONEY extension for Google Chrome. You download the extension and it will appear in the top right. As you jump on your preferred website, pick your item(s), check your cart, use HONEY to scan for coupon codes. They will automatically upload and give you the best deal(s). I had my doubts but tried it on a few big sites and it works. It actually works much better vs. doing individual coupon code searches in google but it's not full proof for every site. Good results were found on Rainier Arms which is normally a tough site to get discounts on.
  7. This is a ADM (like new) model 1301 mount: $160 or best reasonable offer. American Defense MFG, LLC | AD RECON Scope Mount Description from the above link: The AD-RECON mount is made for putting high power glass onto a flattop style AR-15. The AD-Recon works with scopes with Objective Housings as large as 56mm. The cantilever throws the scope out front, allowing you to get the right eye relief. It is precision machined from 6061 T6 aluminum and finished in hard coat T3 Mil-Spec anodize. It features the Patented QD Auto Lock™ Lever system to accommodate both in spec and out of spec rail systems. Features The AD-RECON mount features the Patented QD Auto Lock™ Lever system which has the following advantages: Does not require proprietary tools for adjustment. Can be adjusted with your finger or a flat blade screwdriver. Lever can be configured to lock to the front or the rear. Superior clamping surface to insure maximum rail engagement.

Specifications The AD-RECON mount has the following specifications: Weight: 8.40 ounces The pics below include a Vortex Strike Eagle optic that is currently not for sale. It's only for reference. The scope mount has hardly been used (maybe taken out 5 times) and was purchased in 2017. I’m going a different route for an optic mount so that’s the only reason why I want to part with it. Price : The retail price puts this in the approximate $180-190 range. I’ll sell for $160 and that includes S&H. PM for additional information or for an offer.

    17 dead in Florida School shooting

    On the same note that Bubbas was discussing, it is now finger pointing time but all the kids that are saying they knew it would be him is quite disturbing. The BS snitches get stitches phrase does not cover crap like what this psycho was putting out there. There needs to be more attention/accountability brought to disturbing social media posts by students. Apparently, Cruz thoroughly voiced his depravity and yet we have to deal with seeing him carry out such an act. It's always easier to be an "armchair quarterback" but what a sh*tshow.

    For Greg - New Fur Missile

    I feel grossly inadequate since my wife picked this one out last year.

    Back packs

    It seems somewhat similar to Experticity (minus the needing to be a LEO or MIL part). I don't recommend that site for most things. Too much S&H and other last minute charges. It's like booking a hotel. I did like seeing the DVOR site with Eberlestocks though. I can't say enough about their quality. Awesome packs. I just bought their range bag recently. Couldn't be happier.

    If I can, I do. Seems like all our itemized deductions are about to disappear next tax time. I hope it all averages out...
  12. So all we have to do to get 1 MOA is buy this type of bullet? Hmmmm, I'm going to pass on this one. However, a customer can play mini nerf dart pass in the backyard with it.

    7.62x51 Tavor Bullpup

    Angel, I paid about $1850 for my SAR when it first came to my state. That's with taxes but definitely overpriced. Also, the trigger is HORRIBLE so I had to pay over $350 for the Geissele and separate trigger bow. The trigger changes the rifle...completely. I was going to get rid of it before that. The X95 has now officially replaced the production of the SAR. Now I find both new for $1400 on sale a few times a year and second hand excellent condition ones for about $1200. That's a great deal but hurts to see when I have so much tied up in mine. It could be worse, I could live in Canada or CA where they are usually much more expensive.
  14. Thanks for the input. I've held one for a few and was impressed. They all seem to be fairly nice. I feel your pain. MA is horrible and my in-laws/family are close to you so gun restrictions are well known by many in my family. I would only buy an ACOG on sale or second hand (new model) in excellent condition. The prices vary a lot depending on model but they aren't ever cheap. I've seen a few people over the last couple years that ran into financial trouble let ones go for $500+ off typical retail or sale price a number of times. It's somewhat harder to find a deal like that on a TA11 though. A TA31 is much more popular version.

    7.62x51 Tavor Bullpup

    One thing to add is the hate I hold for Tavor iron sights. They suck but maybe that's just my AR15 bias shining through. A Tavor screams optic. For me, it's basically a paperweight if it doesn't have one. On the flip side of that, I prefer my ARs without....but not for much longer because my aging eyesight is catching up.
