  1. What exactly IS the problem? It seems like you're trying to invent a more round wheel.
  2. The problem lies in what can be expected to go wrong when up to 62,000 PSI (Max 308 SAAMI spec chamber pressure) is applied to various components that were NOT designed or specified to be compatible with each other. There isn't a standard here, no uniform specification. It's not a small frame AR with a Mil-Spec shared among manufacturers. There is not only no guarantee of compatibility, there is no design nor specification of compatibility. I've worked in manufacturing and machining for quite a few years now and I know full well what tolerance stacking, complacency, and various other quirks of human nature and flaws within the human attention mechanism can mean to a finished product. Combine that with the random outcomes of mixing unmatched components from varying manufacturers with varying degrees of quality control and you're begging for a disaster. This surely can't be difficult to grasp.
  3. Just go for it, if you lose a few fingers you can still dictate a nice post for someone else to type so we will know what the results of your experiment were. We're all about lessons learned and data points. Be sure to include pictures. You get bonus points if any part of your gun ends up embedded in any part of your head. Be warned, I WILL laugh and/or shrug and say you knew better. This is your chance to be a pioneer and become a legend in your own time, don't let the naysayers get you down.
  4. It's surprising that this would be considered a logical conclusion, given that a captured spring buffer is designed to satisfy a complaint with a working system, rather than solving any actual problems of function.
  5. ^^^ What he said. Use any carrier you like, but make sure your bolt type and barrel type are matched. If you feel like gambling with your life or well-being, feel free to disregard this advice.
  6. Could've been worse, "bolt spline" comes to mind...
  7. I'm with you, CZ just wants to sell guns and that's an American idea if I ever heard one....
  8. Upon further review, it is evident that you are entirely correct, and I digress.
  9. I'll second that, you've been missed @Sisco
  10. I could very well be wrong, it wouldn't be the first time... I abhor using an adjustable anyways unless it's just unavoidable.
  11. They could've put the fixed jaw facing the correct direction at the very least....
  12. If you're looking for the overall length that will differ between gauges, however the standard go gauge length to the shoulder datum for the case is 1.630" and 1.634" for the no-go.
  13. By an Engineer just like a regular chair, weirdo.... On a side note, knees that "bend the other way" could mean that they bend to the side rather than just to the front or rear, in which case we'd walk like crabs and stubbing your toes wouldn't be as painful.
  14. What happens if you tell a hermaphrodite to go screw themself? In theory, it's more likely that they actually could than the average person....
  15. I was going to say that is easy to answer, but then I remembered that you could also resume hunting, and now it's a really difficult question again.
  16. Colder than a cast-iron commode on the shady side of an iceberg!
  17. To each their own brother, different people want different things from their large AR and I get that 100%.
  18. I can't even count the PMs I've gotten from newcomers asking, "WTF is DEWS?". LOL... ... If you have to ask...
  19. SOBS - sudden onset of BS syndrome
  20. Tom IS the HR manager, and easily the most sensitive and understanding person on the forum. You can't imagine how much the rest of us hate him for it.... 🤣
  21. Sorry to hear about the loss of our brother in blue.
  22. That's roughly .030" clearance, or more than .015" per side of clearance if the actual bullet diameter is in fact .358".
  23. The only real important ejection metric in the large AR is whether or not the brass is making it clear of the gun. If you get that reliably, be thankful and spend your time learning to realize the full potential of your weapon.
  24. What do you mean "sometimes"? Are you new here? :P
