    Swaged .357 Bullets in 9mm w/Suppressor --Anyone Doing It?

    So I know you can swage .357 bullets and use 'em in a 9mm but what I'm not so sure about is whether it's safe enough to use swaged bullets in a 9mm with a can. Anybody doing this? What bullets/process? Or am I overthinking this or being too cheap and should just get the xtreme plated 165gr...

    Best Heat Resistant Wire Wrap?

    Is there one thing that'll work better than another for running a wire next to a hot barrel? Was looking at fiberglass on Amazon, it was cheapest and can handle 500deg. contact and 2000 ambient. And you reckon it'd be best to get it a bit oversize? I think that may help with contact. Say...

    Swaging Bullets Question

    So I saw an ad where a guy is selling 5.56 tracers loaded in 5.45 cases. Supposedly he resizes them first. I'm familiar with this having to resize pulled BMG bullets. Which got me to thinking, that with the 9mm and quest for a better sub, could I not swage .357 158's to fit 9mm safely...

    NEW Timney Trigger in a Tavor, Anyone Using One?

    Any doubling issues with the second generation version? This video I watched of a guy testing out four of 'em, he had problems but he also had a lot of slop in his trigger, not using the Geissele bow. It's a fast firing single stage from what I gather, so I'm familiar with doubling in 3G and...

    Tavor TS-12, Anybody Got One or Shot One?

    Can you compare it to the M4 Super 90? Is it worth $1300 or whatever, is it a good buy? How do you feel about the plastic mag tubes? Is it something you'd depend on or is it just a range toy? Do all the features work, it's reliable? How's recoil? I gotta admit, the futuristic look appeals...

    WTB/WTT: Geissele Tavor Trigger Pack (got a Timney, DELETE)

    Wanna buy a Tavor trigger pack, just the trigger pack and not the bow. NIB, like new preferred, will consider lightly used. OR willing to trade a NIB KAC URX2 mid length rail system for AR (the one with the integrated front flip up sight). Got a Timney, don't need it.

    Best Magazine for 9mm Tavor? --Uses Colt Style 9mm, Help Please

    Searched 'til I'm blue in the face. Read reviews, forums, you name it. IWI obviously uses a 9mm ASC Colt style magazine and supposedly Colt used to use one too but switched back to Metalform due to problems (which may or may not be a problem for the Tavor?). From the reviews and forums it's...

    How's 'bout this for a loadout?

    I count 88 drum fed subguns for around 6400 rounds. How would ATF classify that? BUT they had an answer for shit like this, apparently it looks like this: Why yes those ARE full auto C96 Mauser pistols in an anti-aircraft mount! Sometimes ten Mausers are a bit unwieldy for foot soldiers...

    1 of 50 Nighthawk Customized Korth 6" .357, Only $6299!

    I got a numbered Johnny Rifle when they sold those for the ex but I think I'll have to pass on this one...

    Need Laser Etching Buffed Out on Knife --Recommendations?

    Maybe someone on here is an accomplished enough knife maker to do it? To buff out existing laser etching and re-polish the SS blade? It's not deep at all and I don't think you can feel it. Nice knife, not super expensive or anything but it has meaning to me and I want it done right. I want...

    Desert Tech MDR --Tell Me About It

    Any good? Reliable? Accurate? Are the controls and ergonomics "natural"? Is it a "real" rifle or just a range toy? Would you bet your life on one? AND is it fun? Is it worth $2250 for a 7.62 or $1975 for 5.56? Sale ends tomorrow so getting one would heavily depend on what you guys that...

    New Color NV on Display, Netflix, "Night on Earth"

    Mentions use of "new tech" but doesn't go into detail. But it obviously is using the new all color NV I was talking about last year. It was the size of a large shoebox then, sat on a table and looked like it belonged back in the lab and not in the NM desert. Better than technicolor! Only way...

    WTT, My DTA HTI w/Extras for Your Semi M2HB

    Title sums it up. All my DTA HTI gear for your semi auto M2HB and whatever you have that goes along with it that you won't be needing. Will consider an M3HB on GI parts or GAU16 if you throw in something to boot, like a nice revolver, handgun, optic --we can discuss it. But it's really an...

    Step Over VA, WA is Back Up to Bat

    Just saw on news tonight a whole list, just one after the other, goes to the senate for hearing... Mag bans is just the first one. They've got enough that they're bound to pass some. They simply do not take us seriously and figure we'll put up with anything is the best I can tell. Churchill...

    Hog Eradication --Financially Worth It?

    Okay so not hunting but I figure this is the best place to put it. My buddy seems to think there's a fortune in hunting pigs. I told him it ain't that simple, it never is. But I looked it up and there's a lot of scams on CL regarding paying someone to teach you how to trap dozens at once and...

    Milling Machine, Lathe for Home Shop?

    I'm posting this here instead of gunsmithing because I figure it'll get more traffic here and the one person I really want to see this most I know will see it here (sirhr). So I wanna build a 1919, got to looking into it and I'll need to mill some parts out. I've really been wanting a mill and...

    Daniel Winkler Serrated Spike, Amazing Bladeware!

    So I finally pulled the trigger on a nice knife after the move and I went with this. Daniel Winkler is also a vet and makes a lot of the edged hardware for doorkicker types so his stuff tends to be more on the utilitarian side. They look nice but they're meant to be used and abused. Steel is...

    Once Upon a Time... In Hollywood

    So you either love Tarantino or you hate him. I like movies by certain directors, and he's one of the ones I like. The movie, without giving too much away, is just a fun story about a fictional actor's career during the 60's and his friendship with his stuntman (no, not gay). Lots of actors...

    How to Deal with Crazy People Today?

    So I was at the PO closing out a PO Box. Takes a second to do so. I had some mail to go through and got in line. He was standing near the end of the little island counter and I didn't wanna rub my dick in his crack so I sorta did my business on the end of the island 90deg. to him. Then this...

    Krieger vs. Proof Research CF?

    16" .223 Wylde in an AR. I know Krieger makes a solid cut rifle barrel, heard good things about PF. Both cost about the same. Want the best barrel I can get for this one, if I can get performance and light weight, why not? If it matters, it'll be another DMR type rifle with a 2-10x or some...
