    Another alternative, requiring less equipment, is petroleum jelly, spread it on, let it sit, then wash it off. Then paint with a high temp auto paint in flat back. I did this on some M-14 mags I ran...

    10-4 Brian. Might I suggest one of the modern plastic ammo can copies? I tend to follow the old school powder and primer storage rule. Don’t want it in something that will become shrapnel should it...

    With all due respect, I disagree about not maintaining two sections. The Semi auto crowd is as large as the full auto crowd. This is a particularly American development. If we learn the items by...

    Yeah. Sad to look back and think of the good ole days as the 80’s and 90’s. But that is what the surplus world is like. Wonder what beauties will be overestimated over the next decade!?

    Tr63, couple of comments. Your issue, is not strictly speaking, a semi auto problem. As parts kits, yoru guns are technically cut up machine guns. But as you move forward, there are particular issues...

    WallyG, I had not thought of it in that fashion, but yes, I suppose if the spring was the same diameter (1/2") as the nylon bushing, than yes,. It should be short and stout. Like a tea pot! lol

    Weather and gas settings

    OK, went to the range yesterday. I felt there was NO recoil reduction with the buffer in place to my shoulder. That may have been from me cutting to a length that may have been too short?? I did feel...

    RedRobTam, the video is a great guide, but it does leave out a few points that you will discover on your own along the way. It is a good parts identifier, of sorts. It does not show little nuances...

    TactAdv, I appreciate what you are saying. For me, finding appropriately constructed springs in quantity and variety is not a trip to Home Depot. Unfortunately, many of us have to go by our wits...
