  1. Almost the same. It was the standard, 20” barrel with the 2 piece foregrip and A2 stock. I replaced the 2 piece grip with their octal free float. I liked the A2 stock so I kept that. That was to you, unforgiven. I quoted you from the wrong post, 😂
  2. I have 600 -700 rounds through my LAR-8. Should I be on the lookout for something specific?
  3. So you have some of the stuff this guy has? I'm like 392Heminut, other things keep taking priority.
  4. A little bit about it here: I use to be in the aviation field. I’ve worked on radial engines and turbine engines. Just never on the same airframe! That was really cool, thanks for posting it.
  5. FYI, and for what it’s worth... For some reason, my iPhone 6 doesn’t let me click on the links. I always have to copy and paste the links to read them. When I copy the above link (https://kmshooting.com/26neck.html) I get this screen. My security software thinks the site is a spoof.
  6. I love Calvin and Hobbs. I wish they hadn’t walked away into the sunset.
  7. Welcome from the Magnolia State. You’re gonna love it here.
  8. I received the reamer/lapping jig this morning. It had the spring drill adapter. Now I just need to use it. Thank you everyone for your input.
  9. LOL. That’s an interesting and unusual method. You forgot the link to YouTube showing that technique on an S&B scope😉
  10. I'm not sure, but the round things remind me of a timing disk for an annealing machine. A cartridge holder may slide into the slot. The two groups of holes may be used for timing. Place a pin in a hole to engage a lever. As the disk rotates, move the pin from hole to hole to adjust timing of a function, such as how long the cartridge stays in a flame or when to release a new cartridge. The timing idea may explain why there are a group of 4 holes and another group of 3. I really don't know, just a wild guess.
  11. From the Q & A from Amazon: Question: My kit came with a spring that is treaded on one end and straight bar on the other end. What's this for? My 1" kit didn' t come with this. Mine didn't come with a spring. Sorry... By Jennifer Haight on November 21, 2015 My 30mm kit also came with this. I assumed it was for turning the lapping bar by drill. Not sure how good of an idea that is... By Wayne on November 19, 2015 You screw it into the end of the lapping bar. Then you hookup your hand drill to the other end. Make the work much easier. By Rudy Sandoval on July 23, 2017 I just got mine this morning and I also got the spring. My 1 inch set there was no spring. Ive already used my 30 mm kit with spring and drill, this is much better way to go. easy as can be. For you guys that never receiver the would call Wheeler and ask for one. By Samuel Kissel on April 13, 2018 You tape it to the side of your scope and use it to measure windage By John L on November 19, 2015
  12. I don't see an uneven gap on mine, but I may not know what I'm suppose to be looking for. Thanks for telling me what you've experienced. Now that you mention it, the same kit (mfg # 633266) does not show the spring drill adapter, nor is it listed as an item shipped on Amazon, Optics Planet or Wheeler's own web site. I wonder if its something special just for Brownells? And it's only shown with the 30mm kit.
  13. Couldn't hurt was what I was thinking. The torquing screw driver (1in/lbs to 50in/lbs) won't be here for 3 or so more days. I was thinking of ordering this: https://www.brownells.com/gunsmith-tools-supplies/sight-scope-installation-tools/scope-alignment-rods/scope-ring-alignment-and-lapping-kit-prod126532.aspx It's just under $50. The videos I've watched show people lapping rings. The amount of contact before lapping seems to be in the 20 to 50% range. I've never done this before. The Hi-Lux scope/mount I have on her now is all one unit. All I had to do was tweak it alittle to get is plumb. I think I will order it. I should learn how to do this. It doesn't look complicated. It's coming from Brownells, so whats another 10 days or so. Thanks. '
