    Ideal rate of twist (MLP firearms and shooting thread)

    Question for the other Glockstars: Is it still the case that getting a non-MOS 19 (Gen 5) and milling the slide for an RMR gives a lower profile mount than getting an MOS version (where the optic sits up higher)? I'm about to do one or the other, so any thoughts appreciated.

    eBay charging tax on purchases of used items from private sellers???

    eBay isn't charging anyone tax. They are actually spending resources to collect and pay it on your behalf, under legal requirement. The state you had your item shipped to is the one charging you the tax. ...and, yes, it's theft. Take it up with your public officials at the ballot or gallows.

    That's one that I would consider a folding or collapsing stock (or brace) on. It's so compact! What's the barrel, maybe 2"? I need to go back and read about that one, 45. It's super cool. I got pretty behind in this thread for a while.

    Got my 10" AR500 steel gong yesterday! It's Viking brand. I can hardly believe I got it for only $35/shipped, by stacking a bunch of coupons on top of a sale at Optics Planet. It's large and sturdy! I've got a couple new shooting mats arriving Monday, and will wait on those to give this a...

    Original Dallas Rangemaster, practically NIB! Serious history!

    Check this out! Unreal! https://reverb.com/item/29685794-original-dallas-rangemaster-treble-booster-mint I'm not the seller or in anyway affiliated. I've just never seen one in such fantastic condition, with the original box and papers, as well. The original lead and plug. I think those are...

    With the pistol braces available today, the only real difference is an SBR requires a tax stamp, "allows" you to have a vertical fore grip on it, and requires notification to the ATF if you plan to move it across state lines. Some states still require CLEO permission or notification for NFA...

    Premier Guitar Gibson Factory Tour 2019

    You can find out if your guitar has either the rice grain (Gibson Custom) or the film type (Gibson USA) RFID by heating and removing the fretboard. I found this one under the fretboard of a 50's Tribute Goldtop. You can also use an RFID scanner but all you will get is a number without...

    How to test magnet polarity in a humbucker

    Those testers are handy. If you don't have a magnetic polarity tester, almost every mobile phone has a compass app that comes with it. That will do the same thing. There's an actual magnetic compass inside your phone that the app uses. FWIW - reversing the magnet or reversing the coil...

    *UPDATE* Looks like I'm gonna NOT be a Major League Fishing Boat Official!

    When you regrow it, "epic beard 2.0" will be even greater than before. You and your mighty whiskers can join me and mine on a bass boat, anytime.

    That's really cool! All my ARs have M-LOK now, but this ones does't have it on the 45 degree angles. It's an Aero ATLAS S-ONE. https://www.aeroprecisionusa.com/ar15-atlas-s-one-mlok

    Backup & CQB I know there's a chance that the ACOG and an RMR could both fail at the same time but I think the odds are about a billion to one that I would fail before that happens. I see some ACOGs have factory built-in iron sights on the left side but I've never seen those on the...

    Oh ya. I have no interest in the cheap tools. Cheap tools will let you down and leave you up a creek. Bobro makes some really slick lightweight BUIS but they don't come in an offset variety. Check these out, 1.7oz for the pair...

    Does anyone know of any specifically lightweight offset BUIS? When I put an ACOG on one of my rifles, I decided to try a set of offsets I had, replacing the traditional flip-ups. I like the setup but the ones I had in my parts kit are cheap and heavy. I'm good to shell out for a nice set but...
