    Lots of good stuff there. Worst thing about the civilian ranges are...they expect something to last forever without maintenance. They all look for something that they can forget about. I explained...

    Great idea, I've been shot in the leg and it hurts so I don't recommend it. Ricochets go everywhere and some of these people out on the range think bullets vaporize when they hit steel. One...

    Interesting, a one piece stock...never seen one before. I think these bolts need fitting and if it's a parts bolt then it will.

    I can see how this happened, it coming home. Wonder what prompted this build? Could it have been a burst barrel and a cut and adjust? Things happen when you have the parts.

    Since it's not complete or correct, it will affect the value too. An Ace conversion is always nice but I could never get the ones I had to work well.
