    KRG Whiskey 3 Chassis-Let's See Them

    Wow, did my forum post prompt that? If so, that's pretty damn awesome. If not and it was already there, man am I retarded. :LOL:

    KRG Whiskey 3 Chassis-Let's See Them

    For those of you running a sling swivel near the front of your enclosed forend, how are you attaching it? The instructions online say to use and show flat m5 nuts for non-MLOK accessories, but I bought mine off another Hide member, so I didn't get those nuts with it. And I don't know which...

    Better Bipod For Larger Calibers?

    Well, that explains why last time I couldn't find any info on them. And pretty certain that website didn't exist last time I was looking for info. And yeah, you got me, I didn't read the other thread...will definitely do so now.

    Better Bipod For Larger Calibers?

    Not meaning to derail the thread but... For those of you running LRA bipods, anyone have any contact info? I have some questions and need some parts for mine. For the life of me, I can't seem to track down the company's phone or email. Closest I've been able to come is an address in...

    Ask about buying IOR scope with less than 1000 posts = ban?

    So better than a Tasco with plastic lenses but that's it. Got it.

    Ask about buying IOR scope with less than 1000 posts = ban?

    Are they really that bad? I've heard the name, but I've never seen one, and I definitely don't hear people talking about whether the new one will have this or that particular reticle, so just kinda wondering. I know the brand has been around for quite some time, but that's all I know about them.

    the intricacies of threading?

    So just an update from the guy who hijacked the thread to cry about his own muzzle brake woes: My split rethreading die finally showed up after being accidentally diverted to the wrong state. When I first put it on the muzzle threads, it couldn't even close all the way. The major diameter of...

    AR10 Bolt Stuck in Battery

    I'd put the barrel back on, and try the cleaning rod down the barrel, assuming the round that was in there last did actually go off already. I'd also lube the hell out of everything, including squirting some of it into the chamber and around those lugs, and let it sit for a bit first. In this...

    Triggercam Scope Cam

    Yep, that's the one I was thinking of. Seen people posting up pictures and videos using it, even with NV it seems to be okay. Curious to see how OP's recommendation stacks up. There was a company a few years back selling bullet cams with different sized rail mounts that you could align with...

    Spuhr mount level color opinions

    Honestly, I think it's mostly personal preference. The mounts usually come with the clear, but the green provides better contrast maybe?

    Robar going out of business

    Wow, you're right. When you click through to the finishes page, there used to be all sorts of info about the options they offer. I learned so much from just digging through their site once upon a time. The blog is still up but everything else is gone now.

    Best 34mm QD Mount for AR10?

    Kinda late, but I'm doing something similar on one of my ARs. It is a range toy so bear in mind that I'm not concerned with how ethical my shot placement is or whether my POI deviates an inch or two at 100 meters. I'm using Spuhr QDP mounts on each optic, and just swap them as necessary. I...

    Optics Planet and ITAR

    I try to support my LGS whenever possible for the simple reason that when I have an issue with a component and I need a face-to-face conversation with someone about it, that's where I'll be going. The closest decent gunsmith is at least a couple hours away. I've bought stuff from Optics...

    Triggercam Scope Cam

    I'm interested to see how this compares to the Tactacam offerings. You know, for when I'm finally good enough to actually make shots worth recording. :ROFLMAO:

    the intricacies of threading?

    That's similar to how the ones I have work, though considering the low quality of them, I've only ever used them to count TPI. The teeth on mine aren't cut nearly deep enough to be able to verify anything more than TPI. My bad if I made it sound like you were confusing me. I get what you're...

    the intricacies of threading?

    I can get a thread protector on with just light effort, and it'll go until it bottoms out. The Surefire brake, which is the toughest to get on, spins on just fine until it runs into the damage portions of the threads. Once it hits the damaged portion, it becomes VERY stubborn and the barrel...

    the intricacies of threading?

    Yep, first thing I did was scrub and degrease the threads using a fine wire brush. They are definitely damaged. You can see what look like flattened and widened spots on the peaks of the external thread. The muzzle brakes I'm using, at least one of them has never been used on any other...

    the intricacies of threading?

    I only understand half of what I'm reading, but I'm following this closely now because I'm having a very similar problem. I've got a barrel I recently acquired from another SH member, and the muzzle threads are messed up. Some items, like a really loose thread protector, will go on with just a...

    Nigerian Scammer

    Calguns has an itrader system on there. It's not perfect because it doesn't work if people forget to leave feedback, which has happened multiple times to me. But it's better than nothing. And it looks like we've got one on here now too. Hopefully it works. The biggest problem is that the...
