  1. Exactly as the title says, PM me if you are looking to part with one. I have been waiting for Geissele to put these back in stock since November and they keep saying “soon.” Lol I have cash, PayPal, toilet paper and water.
  2. Would love to know the status as well. Will someone let me spend my money?
  3. Because it is a “firearm” it is not subject to any of the restrictions that a rifle is. You must, however, ensure that your “firearm” meets the criteria of a firearm in order to be exempt. I.e. OAL minimum 26”, VFG, no stock. I’m sure someone will chime in if any of this is incorrect, but that is the way I understand it. IANAL
  4. Thanks for the info. I’ll leave the chart I was looking at here. https://rifleshooter.com/2015/02/the-16-inch-308-winchester-bolt-action-rifle/ Keep in mind the chart is in MRAD, so you must convert it to inches in this case. Also, the projectile they used for the drop test was a 175 grain, which is a factor as well.
  5. Look at the difference in drop. I had to do some conversions from charts I found of .308 out of a 16” and other charts of 7.62x59. Velocities out of the 308 were superior, pushing a heavier projectile (in the neighborhood of 200+ FPS). Also, the .308 drops at almost 1/2 the rate of 7.62x39 at some distances. It seems like an apples to oranges comparison. I’m not “that guy” with ballistics, but I can’t find any charts to compare that show the two rounds being “the same.”
  6. No Garand thumb on a M1A ai it has a bolt catch, and you load it from the bottom via a magazine. Even if you use a stripper clip to load it from the top, you still have the bolt catch. From a practicality standpoint, it is surpassed by other (AR10, SCAR, various bullpups) designs, but to each his own. No one can say you are under gunned, and I personally love the Garand/ M14/M1A family of rifles.
  7. Last night I put some ammo in a cart and I decided to sleep on it. Got up this morning and decided to order. The items in my cart were out of stock and everything I find is back ordered or just plain sold out.
  8. The slide overcoming the mainspring (for the hammer) adds a fair amount of resistance to the slide. Try cocking the hammer BEFORE racking the slide, and you will notice a difference. If it is still too much for you, you may want to consider a striker fired design.
  9. Damn, always wanted one. Can't do it now.m though. Good luck with the sale.
  10. You will be hearing from my office soon.
  11. I need a 6" blued version. I was going to look for a Trooper MKIII eventually, but this will do.
  12. Bed Bath and Beyond! There is 20% off too! You can drive in and pick it up.
  13. Nice, they are pretty good. Went there a few times (worked in the area) and enjoyed it. The bartender was always a JCFD guy and he wouldn't kick us out no matter how late we stay past closing. Lol
  14. +1 the Beretta 92/ M9 series. I had a Sig P226/MK25 variant, and it turned me off to the steel/ aluminium guns because it was top heavy. Also, unique to Sig, I didn't care for the high bore axis, and it did not point naturally for me. I recently picked up a M9, and I have fallen in love. It has me contemplating a 92X. Great ergos, fast to acquire sights and balanced.
