  1. here is my most recent GB experience ,,, had a chicom lower AKS handguard , found a upper on GB reasonably priced for todays standards anyway , pulled the trigger on it so i would have a set laying in wait for just in case because the prices are getting more ridiculous by the day only accepted MO so i sent the money order the next day ,with shipping and tax it came out to just under $75 bucks , any MO under $100 i do not spend extra on shipping for tracking 2 weeks go by and i contact to see if it arrived , only going from WV to Ga , he says no , gave it another week he says no , i told him im not buying another MO so we will give it one more week , thats a month from Wv to Ga , if it doesn't show i will pay the $6 and trace the MO , another week and he says no MO i go to the PO and pay to trace the MO , that was Oct 4 , i scanned the docs and receipts and sent him PDF copies so he knows "Im" not running a game , a week goes by i get a letter from PO saying that they are conducting the trace ,if they find it they will let me know it was cashed , if they can not find it that means it has not been cashed i will be refunded within 10 days , so i contact him letting him know , no response , on the 7th of Oct , 3 days after i sent him the docs i get the handguard , email him asking whats up did he get the MO , no response , now he will not even communicate , yesterday i get a letter with a copy of the front and back of my MO , stamp on the MO says it was cashed on the 5th ,one day after i sent him the docs for the MO trace i got my handguard , it was what i wanted and was what he sad it was , chicom wood is very distinct , so thats the good , but everything played out way too coincidental for me like he was fishing for a second MO , when he realized it wasnt happening he gave in
  2. thanks , i am pretty proud of this rescue , im not one for refinishing old guns , this one was in production from 1936 - 1945 , but there is a point where they are so far gone you cant hurt them by refinishing , that was the case here

    battle damage

    i purchased over 200 of these about 20-25 years ago , and these two were among them , they are pre WW1 German Gewehr 88 rifles , also known as Commission rifles , Gew 88's , chambered in 8mm the one pic was some time later after i dwindled the pile down , the second pic the bullet seems to have traveled to the chamber or breech locking the bolt , the head snapped off and is still in there , ive long since cleaned them up to be presentable but left the damage in tact as much as possible , the last pics are a rife the actually penetrated the barrel , when sighting the bore you can see daylight through it those undies are throw aways
  4. i have CCI Blazer .22 ammo i like allot , never considered blazer as junk ammo , never tried the 9mm stuff
  5. wow , im just the opposite of you , i cant put a gun to sleep without cleaning it , not to say it will not sit on the bench for 2 or 3 days until i can get to it ,but it doesnt go back in the safe until i clean and oil here is why , i have a early 416 code Poly AKS bought decades ago , i shot it and and put it away , shot it some more put it away , continued then moved on to a new rifle or something , but the next time i pulled it out it was covered in rust , to this day that rust reoccurs on that rifle no matter if i put it to sleep oiled heavy or not , little rust here , there and couple decades later it has light pitting , once rust takes hold ,you can knock it back all you want , there will be no stopping it beyond a full strip down and refinish , that rifle is living proof , the ammo was suppose to be non corrosive , not sure if the primers were and thats where it came from , but it was enough to make a grown man cry , chrome lined bore so all good there , but to make matters worse it is a rare double import marked rifle , it carries the import Kengs , and RAI both , no idea why
  6. if i can get this to work out to 300 yds like everyone that reviewed it says they are getting im happy ,even though a .243 is effective out to 500 + i do not really need anything beyond 300 because that would mean im shooting through brush and polymer tipped .243 does not like that
  7. well my experience hasnt been without its bumps and bruises , it wouldnt cycle , they gave me a grocery list of things to try ,and about $500 worth of ammo later ,thats $500 pre panic prices later , i finally very directly explained my displeasure the need to spend north of $500 to break in a $1800 rifle one single shot at a time and they did what they should have done much earlier which was send it back , the opened the gas port up and it seems to be the rifle i was expecting when i purchased it a year ago , ive only run a few mags through it since getting it back but again it appears it was under gassed all along work has been crazy and always is this time of year on top of preparing for winter i just havnt had any free time to really test it , but it did run all 3 mags flawlessly
  8. dont know if its adjustable , will drag it out this weekend and tinker with it some more
  9. ahhh ok ,thanks , i will have to find time to take care of that
  10. i didnt see where it says anything about zoom on your camera ,it gets tricky with zoom , because you need a IR illuminator that is strong enough to reach out , thats why i made sure the reviews said the onboard IR illuminator is good to go out to 300 yards figuring thats the outreach distance i will need , and if i need more i could upgrade with a extra illuminator later also you may want to research batteries , your product has replaceable batteries , these NV products drain batteries , you can be setting yourself up for a very frequent reoccurring expense , another reason i bought the one i did , rechargeable batteries , one of the biggest review complaints i read on other products was battery consumption , and the fact it was draining faster then the claims in the description
  11. i sorta chose the bottom $$$ for what actually works ,if i was going to spend $1,000 - $1,500 i would have just made the leap to Thermal , i figured with all the happy reviews this would give me a decent working entry level option , fix my predator problem and not drain the wallet ,im sure its me and not the scope , im getting to that frustrated phase with it and i just lost another 12 chickens
  12. not that i have anything against paintball , i tried to get my group of friends interested years ago but no one was interested
