  1. Yeah, but you don't want those locking lugs on that bolt slamming into hardened steel razor blades at high speed over and over, do you?
  2. Dammitt, EVERY TIME........ Sorry guys, I'll try to set-up an alarm or something next time
  3. Oh yeah, I can't wait for the next one. Just don't forget where the SR-25 comes from.... :P
  4. Sorry if that looks kinda rushed, last time I got the e-mail saying it was back in stock, it was sold out already. Palmetto State Armory is selling "Federal 7.62x51mm MK319 Mod 0 130gr SOST Ammunition 20rds - T762TNB1", I believe a few of us are familiar with this load. They've got a limit of 2 per person, and it's $12 a box + shipping. Have at it, they already cut me off :(
  5. At PSA, they've got some in stock finally. 2 box limit, hurry up before they run out again: http://palmettostatearmory.com/mk319-mod-0-7-62mm.html
  6. How about this? http://beckdefense.net/510-beck.html http://www.thefirearmblog.com/blog/2016/01/18/510-beck/ It's like the big brother of the .300 Blk, fits a .308 lower, AND comes with (proprietary) Lancer mags? I'm thinkin' that's why we haven't heard from him lately. Much, anyways....
  7. Toolndie7 is g2g, just so y'all know. I hope y'all knew that already. If not, you ain't been payin' attention....
  8. I was randomly looking around on the interweb just now and ran across a pretty good deal. Cheaper than dirt has the Troy BattleRail TRX-308 and Troy Industries RX .308 Extreme BattleRail (EXTREME!!!!!) for $60.44. Correct me if I'm wrong, but that would make these just about the cheapest FF option for the big boys out there. Here's the stuff: The DPMS low profile one: https://www.cheaperthandirt.com/product/troy-battlerail-trx-308-for-dpms-lr-308-low-profile-lightweight-aluminum-black-strx-e3d-72bt-00-812699014486.do?sortby=ourPicksAscend&page=3&refType=&from=fn And Armalite pattern: https://www.cheaperthandirt.com/product/troy-industries-rx-308-extreme-battlerail-72-armalite-black-strx-e3a-72bt-00-812699014462.do?sortby=ourPicksAscend&page=3&refType=&from=fn Of course the Armalite pattern would have extreme in the name XD They are short little rails, at 7.2" I believe, and the DPMS pattern is only low profile from what I can tell, but if you're trying to keep it as cheap as possible, this could help.
  9. You're good, I just worded that first part wrong. What I meant was, that is how you're SUPPOSED to bring a thread back from the dead. It's a really nice set, you mean Spikes never had it on their site?
  10. Np, hollywood, let us know what you find out :)
  11. Now THAT is a thread resurrection! I wish 98 was here to see it....
  12. Hey dsd, did Chris send you the old or new design barrel nut? If it's the old one, I've got a thread on here about it. If it's the new barrel nut, you'll need a 1 5/16" crow's foot if you want to use a torque wrench. I got one for like $10 shipped off amazon. It's a cheapass POS, but that barrel nut is most likely the only thing I'll ever need it for.
  13. Will this work? http://originalbobsled.com/SemiAutoSleds.aspx At the very bottom, it says FAL pattern is "Coming Soon!", so you might have to call and ask someone about it. Beyond that, you'd probably have to just make one, as I don't know of anyone else who does....
  14. It's all good, Frank, I think most of us around here have the same "problem". Just curious, Jerry, which stock are you switching out to?
  15. I think it's gonna be one of those where you torque the nut on, thread the handguard all the way on, then back it off until the rails align, then lock it in with the set screws on the side (I'm probably waaaaaaaaay off, though). Hey, lovetabike, do you have a mic? If you do, measure the width of the gap on the barrel nut. The teeth on my wrench are approx. .185" wide, would that work? If it's too small, or if you can't find a wrench from Christensen, you could probably use something like a single pin spanner or castle nut wrench, but if you're like me and want one made specifically for that nut, you could always send your barrel nut to someone and get them to make one for you. I might know a guy.... :D
  16. For real, the old forum was so much more straightforward. At least we know we can always count on you, Rob!
  17. Oh yeah, I can't wait to see this one. I've been hearing a lot more about Christensen Arms and their hard-on for CF lately, and I'd like to see how it all works out. Ya know, now that I see that barrel nut, I have to say it looks awfully similar to the old barrel nut design from Matrix Aerospace. If you need a wrench to torque that baby on, Toolndie7 might have one left over. Took me a minute to find the original thread, but here's what I'm talking about:
  18. I never even noticed that, I wouldn't mind figuring that one out, either. After playing with it for a minute, I may have come up with a temporary fix. I did this on pc so mobile may be different. When you go into the inbox, click on the arrow next to "My Conversations" and select "Add Folder". Name it (I just put delete) and move whatever messages you want to delete to the new folder. Then just open the little tool menu next to the arrow, hit Empty, and you just deleted the messages you moved.

    I'm still waiting for another deal like that one from PSA on "Mk 319", I kick myself every time I think about how I missed it last time.....
  20. Yeah, they'll usually come with instructions for installation, and if timing is required the company selling the brake/comp usually sells timing washers, crush washers, etc, but if you want something that looks a little cleaner check out this post: http://forum.308ar.com/topic/12552-just-timed-and-blended-a-jp-comp-for-chasefan9/
  21. Definitely hooked up on this end, that's for sure. The quality of your work is second to none, brother! If you had a few of us up there with you, just imagine what we could accomplish. BTW, y'all know you guys could probably get some amazing stuff done, too, if you ask reeeeeeeeeeeeeal nicely...... Edit: I know it's probably getting old by now, but thanks again! :)
  22. Oh man, you never cease to amaze me, brother! I can't wait to break this one in.... I fell in love with those JP comps with my first one, and once Josh announced they were putting out some 16" rifle length barrels in .308 I knew I was going to need another. Whenever I need something like this done, you're always the first person that comes to mind, but the quality speaks for itself. Thanks again, man!
  23. I would love to if I had the finances. If I can get my tax return quick enough I'll bite. Short or long action?
  24. The handguard didn't come with the barrel nut? I don't know much about Christensen Arms, either, but I'm pretty sure you need a barrel nut. Can you post pics? The only CF handguard I can find on their website looks like it uses set screws at least at 3 and 9 o'clock to secure it to the barrel nut. Are we talking small frame(AR-15) or large frame (.308 AR)?
  25. I agree, Faxon and Criterion are both members, too, and they have great customer service. I'll add that my 20" from Black Hole Weaponry is sub MOA all day, and they can do a lot of caliber/length/profile combinations (though you may have to wait a little while for them to make it for you). All three of these are great, accurate choices for less than $400.
