    Wife’s New Ride...

    Funny story, I just ran the build sheet on this one. It was originally ordered by Budget Rent-A-Car. Leased by them for 5 months, then turned over to auction. The dealer we bought it from had 2 more identically equipped, same color, similar mileage. CarMax shows 8-10 identical ones, similar mileage, exact same price, nationwide.

    Wife’s New Ride...

    My wife’s parents offered to buy her 2009 Charger from us, at a price we couldn’t pass up. So she needed something new(er). She wanted a Toyota Highlander. Until she drove a new Chevy Traverse. Which she loved. To round things out, I suggested she try a Dodge Durango. She did, and was so-so about it. Until she saw this: So now it's in our driveway. 2018 (used) R/T AWD, 26k miles. Nicest damned Dodge I've ever driven.

    Blue builds OG

    For $160 each, I was hoping they were good. Just haven't ever heard from anyone who's built on one. Biggest PITA is going to be sending a brand new Colt barrel off to Retro Arms Works to have it cut down to 15". Next biggest PITA will be silver soldering an A1 FH in place. I'd like to be able to remove the FH in the future, if needed, and silver solder seems to be the least difficult way to accomplish that.

    I very much enjoy seeing these retro builds. Got me inspired to build a 605 clone on NoDak receivers...

    Sunspot New Mexico

    A "security issue" about which no one can speak... Local sheriff says, "There was a Blackhawk helicopter, a bunch of people around antennas and work crews on towers but nobody would tell us anything.” https://www.alamogordonews.com/story/news/local/2018/09/07/sunspot-observatory-south-cloudcroft-closed-due-security-issue/1227788002/

    In production...

    Understood, I was unaware of the complications on the manufacturer's end.

    Any chance of an 80% .308?

    Brand new LaRue scope mount

    I got that same e-mail. Looks very interesting...

    And now for something completely different...

    Barrel so long and scope so fat you can't get the whole rifle in one pic...

    IWB Holster Recommendation-Stealth Gear

    I've been carrying my XD Mod.2 .45 Sub-Compact in a Cloak Tuck 3.0 since January, and I love it. Hands-down, the most comfortable IWB holster I've had. Add to that the fact that you can change weapons by just swapping out the Kydex shell (for ~$15, IIRC), and it's one hell of a system. Yes, you do need blue LocTite. But I've had to LocTite every screw on every holster I've ever used -- it's the nature of the beast.
  12. Title says it all... I'm kicking around the idea of a left-side charging upper for my M110A1/CSASS-inspired build. So far, I've found the Gibbz upper (sold under a couple of different brands, but all bear the Gibbz logo), which seems to be well-thought-out. Importantly (to me, anyway...) is that it's designed to accept any LR308 BCG, with the cam pin being replaced by their proprietary one. Anyone have any experience? Other suggestions? TIA, fellas.
  13. Closest thing to QD would be the A.R.M.S. 17 style bipod, with an A.R.M.S. QD/lever mount. But that mount is $100ish. But, at that point, you're in the ballpark of a lower-tier Atlas V8...
  14. Dumbass Early Warming System, got it. But what I said sounds a helluva lot more fun... Lmao!
