Agreed. Also, pretty much any part but the receiver is replaceable. I know the first time you hack at the gun with a Dremel is always the hardest moment to get past. Just don't aim to take off too much metal when you go polishing and you'll be fine.

here is a short video of the Saiga 12 with wall mart ammo 12 round drum.

http://www.flickr.com/photos/brewpubeaver/6663678289/

i had some issues with swapping the gas setting for the diff types of ammo. went through over 200 rounds and couldnt be happier.

i think some more fine tuning with the gas block and posibly some polishing will help. i just needed to figure out what settings are what is all.

I watched the conversion video. I'm just worried about getting the springs all back in the right place along with the BHO and the retaining place etc. Lol

Had a buddy bring his S&W .40 over he just bought yesterday. Couldn't get it field stripped. So I messed with it for a few minutes, found that the slide has to be about 1/8th of the way back to free up the slide lock lever. It also came with a crossbreed super tuck when he bought it which he doesn't like because he was trying to wear it on his hip instead of in the proper location. I

I'm not going to lie, BHO was a royal pain the ass for me. I bent the spring for it wrong the first time and it was making me rage. Luckily I had a spare, so the second one got bent correctly and installed with only minor annoyance.

BREWPUBEAVER, looking good. It almost looks like your top rail sits higher than your factory iron sights. Is that correct?

Wish i was there.

I was having an issue with getting an order from crossbreed for a "second" or "blem" from them. sent money three weeks ago. Then posted about it on xdtalk forum and within minutes Mark from crossbreed messaged me since he's the moderator there and said he was at SHOT and would make sure i get a holster. The next day he says they got my money and 40 other orders. I'm sure the mail man was just holding them so he could dump them all in their lap at once... LMAO

Lots of cool toys - got to muck around with an MP7 and some really nice optics that are coming out this year

There are some nice entry level stuff from Burris, Leopold and others coming out

Nice when meeting customers is in such a nice environment to look around

Picked up something bigger than my AR. Its a CETME/HK G3/91 clone.

Century Arms C91 .308. Shoots good, and doesn't seem to have some of the common issues that Century is known for.

Hey all, just curious if this is a "range day" thread or misc gun discuss thread.

I just recently got into this expensive hobby about the same time I picked up my 11 STI, yet another expensive hobby.

Trying to add attachments to my AR and would be nice to have some locals chime in. Possibly try out . Specifically optics. Ive seen a ton of threads and still not sold on one.

Thanks
JJ

I run a Trijicon Accupoint TR-24 on my AR and found it is a great optic, took me forever to make up my mind also.

There are a number of great stores depending on your area, around the Tacoma Auburn area I recommend Rainer Arms in Auburn and Surplus Arms and Ammo in Lakewood. Both usually have a wide selection of different optics available to look at.

What type of optic are you looking for? Magnified, longer range scope or non-magnified red dot type?

I was looking at the EOTECH MPOII. Wanted best of both worlds but heard these are fragile.

EOTECHs are good optics. The older ones were the ones with the problems. The newer ones seem to be doing pretty good. And I believe they've got a great warranty, which is fine if your just range shooting. Not so good if your in some 'stan country.

I've actually got a 557.223 with the 3x magnifier that I'm going to sell. No problems with being fragile that I know of and it's AA battery powered, so you don't have to start selling parts of the gun to pay for CR123 batteries. Interested?

PM me about it. Thanks.

Yeah not heading to 'stan anytime soon, but dont want to drop a large on an optic that is prone to crack. Aimpoint seems to be rock solid but heard issues of having a hard time aquiring the red dot. I have slight astigmatism and like the fact eotech can be used with both eyes open. Goin to be using it mostly at the range and gravel pit in the summer.

Possibly interested in the aimpoint micro for its small size/weight and good price point. Thanks.
