  1. Sorry, gents. I signed up for reply notifications and never received any. I put the handguard on a customers rifle, so the admins can close this thread.
  2. I like David Tubb. When he speaks you will do good to listen.
  3. Midwest Industries 308 high DPMS key mod handguard. Decided to go another route. Never installed. Asking $125 shipped. Cash, check or money order, but Paypal is preferred.
  4. The only cow in a small town in Northern Italy stopped giving milk. So the town folk found they could buy a cow in Sicily quite cheaply. So, they brought the cow over from Sicily. It was absolutely wonderful. it produced lots of milk every day and everyone was happy. They bought a bull to mate with the cow to get more cows, so they'd never have to worry about their milk supply again. They put the bull in the pasture with the cow but whenever the bull tried to mount the cow, the cow would move away. No matter what approach the bull tried, the cow would move away from the bull, and he was never able to do the deed. The people were very upset and decided to go to the local veterinarian, Dr. Santucchi, who was very wise, to tell him what was happening and to ask his advice. "Whenever the bull tries to mount our cow, she moves away. If he approaches from the back, she moves forward. When he approaches her from the front, she backs off. If he attempts it from the one side, she walks away to the other side." The veterinarian rubbed his chin thoughtfully and pondered this before asking, "Did you by chance, buy this cow in Sicily?" The people were dumbfounded, since no one had ever mentioned that they had brought the cow over from Sicily."You are truly a wise veterinarian," they said. "How did you know that we got the cow from Sicily?" The Vet replied with a distant look in his eyes: "My wife is from Sicily."
  5. I agree. I have the Tubbs spring in my carbine length rifle and I thought I was going to have to hire a crew to get it in. But once in, I love it.
  6. But maybe the Commie will turn 3rd party and prevent the Cunnt from winning. If that happens, even Rubio could win.
  7. That is cool. Loading that clip is one of the reasons I don't have a Garand.

  9. Finally got her mounted. I used a 20moa mount first time and it didn't work out. I called Steiner and they told me the scope was made for a 45moa mount. Couldn't find one one under the price of a pound of gold so I went with a 40moa. I will get some pics when I get a chance. BTW, when I spoke to them I asked if Steiner bought Burris or the other way around. The guy told me neither. Beretta bought them both. Seems some of the Steiners are being assembled in the Burris plant with all imported Steiner parts.
  10. I got her mounted. This is a big scope. Makes my Leupolds look like toys. I haven't looked through top tier military scopes in almost 50 years, but I can tell you this: I never looked through anything this good. My Unertl was long and skinny. Good glass but nowhere near this Steiner. It is awesome. Turret clicks are spot on and perfect. I used my bore sighter to check them out. The illumination has 11 settings: 4 night and 7 daytime. Each setting has an off setting between them. Pick the setting you want and one click either way turns it off. Absolute zero stop on the elevation which is perfect for night use. It is big and sturdy. I feel it is a bargain for $1400. When this Noah raining stops, I will take her for a spin and let you know how she does. I feel like she will be perfect.
  11. My new Military 4-16x50 is due in today. FFP, MRAD and illuminated reticle. 34mm rings are right up there with pure gold coins. I guess they figure if you can afford the scope they can milk more out of you for rings. Got a 20moa cant mount to secure it to the top rail. I'll post a "review" later. If it works as planned, it will be $1400 well spent. I always said I would never spend more for a scope than what I paid for a rifle. Getting old makes you more "mellow", or as I call it, more forgiving. And forgetting.
  12. I have one round. Brought it home from my vacation in RVN. It would be awesome to own a rifle that can shoot through some small towns.
  13. Basicall a bomb going off in front of your nose.
  14. We used to tie the rifle to a tire and use a long string to test fire rifles. The good old days!
