  1. SSD reported on the initial RFI back in March. Program requirements.
  2. Those things are pretty good, especially for how cheap they are. Sure beats buying V7 dust cover parts for a lightweight build too.
  3. Did he yell back, "Hey Caitlyn-Robo, here's your sex change!"?
  4. I've done it plenty of times and there's really not much to worry about. I usually use UPS since there's a hub along my commute.
  5. What buffer does the 20" have? Do the gas plug positions work (i.e. if you set it to full closed does it actually cut off the gas?)?
  6. Thanks for the update! Hopefully it smooths out over time.
  7. Lol... CFD isn't state of the art. It's state of the present and has been for a long while. Whenever companies use that term you can basically think of it as a "check box" item for marketing material, just like how everybody says "aircraft grade aluminum!" What really matters is the model they used for it and I don't think they're going to actually say anything about what they plugged into COMSOL or ANSYS.
  8. Assuming you can get the parts (and it looks like ITAR isn't really hindering you since you can get the SLR block and Slash buffer), I'd recommend going with an AR-10 pattern buffer system instead (7-3/4 in. internal depth receiver extension such as VLTOR A5, Armalite EA1095 action spring, and normal AR-15 carbine-sized buffers, start with H3 weight). This should give you more options when tuning your adjustable gas block and buffer system. I prefer rifle gassed systems on 16" barrels, but then again I don't have to worry with as cold of temps as you guys get in Ukraine... With the SLR block though I guess you could just open the port pretty large and dial it back.
  9. I guess the G36 was wroth the $$$$$$$$$$$$ after all! Look how versatile it is after its sight loses zero! <laughs>
  10. Ok, I'll just let you keep on thinking that. Not like it isn't in our own tech docs on here or anything... ::)
  11. The MSDS says it contains up to 30% graphite. Not ideal for use between aluminum and steel. Ideally you'll want to use some molybdenum fortified grease. Aeroshell 33ms is the popular one, I use Valvoline VV632.
  12. Assembling a lower and upper is easy... AS LONG AS you have all the tools and supplies... Let's not forget that: -not everybody has a vise -not everybody has the correct upper and lower vise blocks or barrel extension tools -not everybody has a torque wrench with the correct torque range -not everybody has the proper barrel and/or castle nut wrenches -not everybody has the proper grease for the upper receiver and receiver extension threads -not everybody has the proper roll pin punches -not everybody has the proper headspace gauges... Yeah, assembling a lower and upper is easy, but not that easy to do properly...
  13. Sharps Rifle Company has 10% off.
  14. Apex Gun Parts sale. Aero Precision's 4th sale:
