  1. I really enjoy these threads and marvel at the incredible acts of heroism. Thank God such men exist…
  2. Looking good, be sure to post a range report after you shoot it...
  3. I'm such a putz... If it doesn't work this time I'm going to start drinking!
  4. this internet thing is hard...
  5. Garage day, this weekend is a washout so I cleaned up a little and detailed the engine on the ‘58. [img]https://i.imgur.com/UGRnrjf.jpg[/img] [img]https://imgur.com/GvoWAb9[/img]
  6. Got my pistol build out to the range and put 100 rounds through it to break things in and see if it will group. It’s sighted for 25 yards until I can shoot outside at longer distances. Not at all impressive, but this is one of my better 10 shot groups from the bench.
  7. Interesting story about the 517 P.I.R. in France with some very cool historic details.
  8. The different types of vice blocks all serve different purposes. Vice blocks that lock into the mag well permit both hands to be free when you are assembling a lower. Same with the style of vice block that uses the take down and pivot pin lugs to securely hold an upper. The one I use has provisions for both small and large frame AR's so it was fairly cost effective. They are both handy for general maintenance and cleaning. I also have a couple of reaction rods, a Midwest Industries URR that has the anti-rotation tab and one from BOTACH without the tab. The only thing I'm wanting is a reaction rod for a .308. If I ever have to take apart my .308 I will buy one, they are that good. The MI rod gets used for torquing barrel nuts and muzzle devices to prevent damaging the index pin. The other is nice because the upper can be easily rotated 360* for stuff like handguard installations or tightening gas block set screws.
  9. @Savage11006 My buddy Junior (RIP) worked at a metal fab shop and made it for me 20+ years ago. It serves as a workbench, reloading bench, a bar during garage parties and became my temporary office for a couple weeks during the Covid shutdown.
  10. Thanks, I mix it up a little with different furniture and barrel lengths, but the foundation of the gun has kind of become my default build. Pretty boring, but it works...
  11. I have them on several guns. For the money, you can’t beat it…

  13. This thread needs a little bump…
  14. I have a green XPS2-0 that's pretty fuzzy, dialing back the brightness helps sharpen it up. The same holds true for every other red dot optic I have used.
