  1. I just ordered a Faxon AR-10 Streamline Handguard. What size crowsfoot will I need to torque down the barrel nut? I'm hearing different information out there and there isn't much to begin with with it comes to the AR-10 model. Just thinking ahead so I'll have all the tools needed to install the handguard right away. I'll also put up a review if anyone's interested.
  2. Thanks, the gas system was optimized for unsuppressed fire, so there's not doubt that my rifle was over gassed when firing suppressed. Even though I shoot mostly suppressed, I still want releability when shooting unsuppressed. Maybe that had something to do with the stress crack. How did you secure the buffer tube to the receiver with stripped threads? I'd be worried about that receiver extension, BCG, and weight flying off in a different direction. For me even if there were no cracks on the receiver, I'd ground the receiver if the buffer tube threads were stripped in any way.
  3. Interesting news. I just heard from another source that he used Glock 21. Times and news like this seems to remain fluid till the dust settles depending on what fits the narrative these days. It's true that suppressors are rarely used in situations like this. Probably because they're not readily available along with the red tape and lengthy wait. From what I understand though and correct me if I'm wrong. Before they were regulated, Suppressors and SBR's were used back in the days of Prohibition. The Mobs and gangsters used them to assassinate their competition so the ATF came up with this idea with a $200 tax stamp. Back then $200 was a pretty large sum of money in the 1920's. Lucky for us that price hasn't changed, I wonder sometimes if that fee was adjusted with inflation.
  4. I find it humorous and scary that the general public believes that silencers are Hollywood quiet which only adds fuel to their fire. Well... a subsonic 22lr suppresses is pretty quiet though
  5. I just came back from a boating trip, and I can’t find my suppressors anymore...
  6. 12 months now? That's a long time to wait these days. I own three suppressors and the shortest time I ever had to wait was 4 months. Just my personal theory that the bad guy made a home made suppressor. Plenty of information on it on the web.
  7. I have a feeling that center of uranus attached a solvent trap to the muzzle and threaded on a oil filter. From what it sounds like he just recently purchased a 1911 so if he purchased the suppressor at the same time I doubt he received it by now unless he planned this over 9 months ago.
  8. Cerakote FDE and it’s going on my original build replacing the frisbee lower that failed. The Phase 5 wont fit on this lower because the lower flares out at the bottom. Fortunately this lower has a bolt release button on the right side.
  9. Thanks for the explanation! I see you edited your post lol. I like to edit my reviews because new things come up or I’ll forget things or in one case I was half asleep so my grammar was terrible.
  10. For me it's a labor of love and challenge. People kept telling me I can't build a M1A from the ground up, but I did. I like Aero, and it all goes together very well. Anytime a friend tells me they want to build a 308 AR, I always tell them to buy paired receivers to make things easy. I'm a hypocrite because I like to mix and match awesome stuff so it makes it complicated.
  11. This forum engine is unforgiving it seems to me when it comes to typos and correction. I'm not a pro, but I think there are so many applications for a drill press when it comes to Firearms! A drill press would definitely be useful for this jig if you don't get the drill guide for the trigger assembly and safety. It would also make the first pilot hole light work as well.
  12. Semi Final work. I installed all components to make sure everything lines up. Function check is satisfactory, ready for engraving and Cerakoting! That LaRue Tactical Straight Bow Trigger sure is nice!
  13. When you’re all done with the cavity and trigger hole (about 30 passes) it’s time to drill out the trigger pins and safety holes. I highly recommend the drill guides. It makes the job easier and true. When you’re done the fun part is next. Cleaning up can be a messy job so prepare for a lot of debris. With all the WD40 used it can be a pain to clean it all up. I used brake cleaner and washed it all down till the entire lower was totally free of aluminum chips. The end result was pretty good. The trigger hole had two blemishes which I don’t understand. The entire operation was very smooth without any chattering or jumping. I needed to take a small file to smooth and radius some sharp edges, and the only control surface that needed some minor filing was the safety. All in all, I’m very happy with this jig. The price is about $250, add another $30 for the drill guides. If you’re law enforcement or military, they have a 10% discount. Remember, this is only a review so proceed with care and caution. Good luck and I hope this helps anyone down the line.
  14. Before you start, you have to line up the Router with the router base. It took about 5 minutes with my router. This kit has a vacuum cleaner attachment, and it works alright. You just have to seal up all the areas with duct tape. You’ll see the pics below how I taped it all up. I also set up a plastic room to contain the aluminum chips to reduce the mess which was a good thing. A vise is important here, it’ll make your life much easier. So you start by drilling a pilot hole all the way through the receiver. The instructions say you cannot do this with a portable drill because it doesn’t have enough power. I’m here to tell you that if you have a strong enough drill, AND YOU KNOW WHAT YOU’RE DOING, it can be done. I use plenty of WD40 I feather the speed so the bit is SLOW and apply moderate pressure. I’ll back the drill out several times to get those chips out and lube it. It’s a pretty long hole to drill so take your time. If you have a drill press, then more power to you, It’ll be a lot less work. The top of the jig has depth guides to help you with every pass of the router. Take your time and read the instructions before you start. After every router pass, I cleaned the bottom of the router, the top of the jig, the bearing surfaces of the jig that the router follows with the paint brush, and blast the cavity with the canned air to clear out the aluminum chips. Before I start with the next depth I’ll spritz WD40 in the cavity. just enough to cover the area.
