    Hunting season 2017

    Wow! That chainsaw winch is pretty neat. Great exercise. I live in pancake flat FL and all I can do is use a harness deer drag for my exercise and our deer are so scrawny it hardly qualifies. Great story great eats and great all around very cool.

    Building new, PWS, retrofit current....ideas

    Unfortunately the Q Cherry Bomb brake for their QD version is too short and not recommended for pin/weld.
  3. Guys I know a lot of you have been where I am so rather than keep burning brain cells I'd love to hear how you went and where you might steer me. I'm in FL and have pretty much given up deer hunting in favor of thermal hog/coyote control....just take a couple of does for the freezer that's it. Thermal way too much fun. Starting to hunt some adjacent lands for owners to get on problem and they want us to use suppressors. On to decisions Currently have Live Free Armory BA Hybrid 18", but need an adjustable gas block. Not in love with idea of 18" + suppressor length so 16" liking more b/c getting in and out of a truck all night the length really does matter banging it around on the door frame etc. Have used buddies PWS MK216 with Sig SRD Ti and runs like a dream, but good grief that rifle is a lot heavier than mine just comparting upper/lower to mine. We do almost all offhand shooting and when going after runners that's where I love my light weight. That said I bought a new MK216 upper and have it sitting here in my office. Party just because the correct number of firearms to own will always be N + 1! Plus I have 2 friends who already said if I decided I don't want it they will buy it straight away. Or I could build one up from scratch trying to keep barrel at 16 and going light all around. It's obviously a blend of wants and needs. I think I'd probably adjust to the extra weight of the PWS + can over time and be fine and am leaning that way, but wanted to run this by the brain trust here b/f I committed too far one way or another. My buddy loves his and it's a smart design. Open to any and all discussion throw the ideas out if ya have 'em please thanks. The suppressor is going to be the Q Full Nelson never heard anything like it sounds like a fart on a 308 just insanely awesome. Thanks all....fire away!

    DPMS high profile pattern manufacturers

    I'm not buying a lower I'm keeping mine. I have received about half a dozen emails on my armslist ad asking what lowers are compatible with my upper for sale.

    So as far as functionality there is no worry b/t low profile and high profile DPMS patterns? It's purely cosmetic? Thanks

    Ok thanks guys
  8. I know a couple of you on here are the ever updated 'google' on compatibility of uppers/lowers. I have a DPMS high profile patterned upper I am going to sell and want to know who makes compatible lowers w/o having to make any mods. I know PWS is a direct fit I've been shooting my buddies PWS upper on the lower I have currently runs like a champ.....gotta be others. That said I'm keeping my lower it's set up beautifully for me and I have a new PWS upper on the way. Thanks guys
  9. Wondering if I could put a PWS upper on my DPMS high rail lower. Thanks

    DPMS High Rail handguard

    I can go as short as a 10.5", but 11" would be fine too....currently running a 15" and trying to shed every ounce I can + gain some ergonomics. To double up on that wish in the event someone has one they didn't like or in a box the *rounder* the better. I hang nothing on my handguards and shoot offhand a ton in the woods. I really like these designs by ALG Defense, but no bueno for 308. Thanks folks

    Time for a new soft case

    Anyone used this GPS tactical? Saw one the other day it's built like a tank seems like great quality. Before I drop 100 beans on a soft case wanted to see if anyone here used one. https://www.amazon.com/G-P-S-GPS-T42ARB-5267-0019-Tactical-Equipment/dp/B00KRB9U4O/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1493809584&sr=8-5&keywords=G.P.S.+Tactical+case

    Ditched the bolt action 308's for the semi autos

    Is that model Savage specd with irons? I miss having an iron sight rifle and I have been eyeing a Savage Hog Hunter. My neighbor just picked one up and I really like that thing a lot the balance is fantastic, stock leaves a bit to be desired, but dang for $450 bucks a suppressor ready bolt with nice irons is a nice deal in my book. If your Savage has irons let me know I might be up for it if you have not sold it already.

    Happy Easter

    He is risen indeed! Great day down here in FL, but the greatest of days no matter where you are.

    Anyone camo their AR?

    I sure like that. I did my 308 bolt up in a soft camo wrap it's held up really well I sat in several rain storms towards the end of rifle season. Just doesn't work out right on an AR though gotta get paint in there on the intricate areas.

    Anyone camo their AR?

    I've seen a couple of decal kits and am not too keen on them if I do it I'd like the look of paint. That said I have the worst artistic talents of anyone here hands down. My gun spends 99% of it's time in the woods and while I can't say for sure it matters I do think stark black stands out. I was able to wrap my bolt gun in a soft camo wrap which looks great, but just too many areas left undone with a wrap on a AR frame. Hoping maybe someone here has had the same concerns and muddled through it. Would love to see whatcha came up with. I guess the nice thing about a cheap rattle can approach is ya mess it up, cover it up and start over! I already have a bunch of Rust-o-Leum camo paint from painting stands and climbers I just need inspiration and TALENT. Thanks guys
