  1. In what regard? Remember that we're trying to give folks useful information, saying your barrel was "dead on" without any frame of reference isn't as useful or compelling as it could be, so please expound on that point a bit. Nobody's here to tell you what to feel, but your feeling has no bearing on either what we've witnessed & fixed here from PSA, or the actual shortcomings of the designs that they've sold to countless disappointed customers. It's worth noting that no one has claimed here that the barrel is the source of their issues. However, it is quite common knowledge here that their barrels have long incorporated a far too small gas port into their design. That's not to suggest a bad barrel, that's pointing out poor design. Also, we rarely suggest replacing a PSA barrel, and frequently suggest simply drilling up the gas port to a size that's proven to be reliable and adequate. Why not just sell a rifle that works correctly off the shelf instead? I never felt like you were, I appreciate your candor and your demeanor.
  2. That made absolutely perfect sense.
  3. We've had more than our fair share of "my PA-10 doesn't work" folks come through. PSA isn't losing any sleep at night over the fact that their platform doesn't work. One of our experts volunteered the information to correct their issues at no cost to them, and they didn't care enough to hear him out. Yes, the heavier buffer and better spring will increase feeding reliability. You'll probably have to drill your gas port up in size too, but try the new spring buffer combo first.
  4. Yes. Unless you would prefer to install another buffer tube, in which case you can get everything you need in another kit from ArmaLite.
  5. Follow this link: http://heavybuffers.com/ar10carbine.html The buffer + spring combo is what you want. Will run you ~$115 + shipping.
  6. Welcome to the forum @Jarrad Markel and congratulations on your recent transition to CEO of Full30!
  7. Welcome to the forum! Looking forward to helping you build!
  8. Use a heavy oil like motor oil on your bolt carrier group, and lots of it. That's pretty much Rule #1 for diagnosing large AR problems in a brand new gun. After resolving the lube issue, give us some dimensional details about your recoil system, namely the internal depth of your buffer tube, the relaxed length of your recoil spring, and the length of your recoil buffer. A measuring tape will suffice for measurement, and pictures of said items with the measurements even more useful.
  9. My pleasure, all three of those designations belong to Armalite and the Armalite pattern of large ARs. Aero uses a DPMS-style receiver which should be compatible.
  10. Check out EuroOptic's offerings, they're including spare mags and manufacturer vouchers for additional mags.
  11. They're really nice, I shot Tommy's a fair bit and it's good kit. I really want a Tikka T3X though, I've heard really good things about them.
  12. Welcome to the site! To get out to 1k with a .308, I'd recommend a heavy profile barrel not less than 18" in length. Fulton Armory, Faxon, and Ballistic Advantage are all barrel manufacturers I would recommend, I'm sure others will chime in....
  13. I'm very glad you made it off the street beat without being killed. Hesitation is a really good way to become dead, and if your mindset now is the same as when you served, it seems to me you would've been at higher risk of dying than an officer who isn't going to hesitate when the moment comes. Please don't mistake my bluntness for malice, I want to see all my brothers in uniform go home safe and whole at the end of the day.
  14. It's a good shoot. Distance between the aggressor and the defender isn't the only consideration. He warranted a bullet the instant he disregarded her directives and advanced on her.
  15. So fast that I'd probably go backwards in time, whereupon I would use that opportunity to hit it again just for good measure.
  16. I fixed permissions, he should now be able to post and create new topics in the "What you need to know" section.
  17. Do we want this turd to float? Your call bro, I'm just here for the company....
  18. He should be able to post here AFAIK, and I'll go ahead and pin it for when the information herein is actually useful.
  19. Now there's a guy who's hooked on fishin!
  20. Mmmm, I dunno, someone (I won't name any names) has been derailing a lot of threads lately. This might be a thread about barrel profiles, let's not count our chicks before they consent.
  21. Whoa buddy, nobody wants your biography, just the essentials.... I'm only kidding, welcome to the forum!
  22. That's a terrible oversight on my part, and will be remedied with a quickness.
  23. It's done. Aren't you a Moderator? Or is this a social engineering attempt to elevate your privileges?
  24. I third them, they've become an integral part of any new build that will end up suppressed.
