    At recent prices perhaps. I was under the impression that there was a booming trade in Saiga Sporter conversions before the import ban when they were cheap.

    Well, original Galils go for, what 3k or so on the secondary market? I'm just going off that and I belive there is a new company doing another round of Galil parts build rifles and you have the modernized Aces around. Maybe Saiga sporters won't get to the same level but the values will...

    Minneapolis Police 3rd Precinct Head To Business Owner: ‘Reinforcements Aren’t Coming Any Time Soon’

    Time for the common citizen to take matters into their own hands, and that goes double for taking measures to resist and defy leftist DAs when they do so. Do you what you have to do and tell the illegitimate leftist law to go fucks itself when they roll up to take you away.

    Ambidextrous Charging Handles

    Money and ammo is tight that I can surely understand, however in your case trigger time is absolutely tge best investment of your money right now. Experience with the platform will highlight those areas on the AR15 which you would like to improve and which you need not. Keep track of @OnSight...

    Ambidextrous Charging Handles

    Lol, and all the while you do indeed run a few Radian handles, ha! The scope thing, I missed that too. Overhanging optics can indeed hinder access to the GI handle, good point. So @GTN I think we can lay down the following criteria: Do you have or plan on mounting a scope? Do you find the GI...

    Affordable small carry gun?

    Y'know, over time I have gotten less and less concerned about printing. Unless the printing is totally egregious and presenting a full outline of your gun I really don't think anyone notices. Reason I say so is I have been carrying my G19 in a shoulder holster under a light button up shirt...

    Ambidextrous Charging Handles

    No, none of these refinements are necessary. They are just nice to have. Personally I find the ambi handle to be useful for press checks. I rollnthe gun over and use the right side wing to open the action as I observe the chamber. You can do this with a GI handle also, I just find it a...

    All these people selling their Saigas! Don't sell em they are good as gold now! Really nice looking setups there. Do they have the side rails? You could lower the scope height significantly with an RS Regulate mount.

    AR15 Charging Handle

    I was thinking about side chargers and it occurs to me that if the handel is on the right now you have to do the AK roll or reach under and that is an ergonomic downgrade or if its on the left side that will be poking you. I have always thought s8de charging AR setups were dumb, the standard...

    AR15 Charging Handle

    I have run them both at training classes with Ben slung across my chest. Standing listening to instruction, walking up and down the line, charging up to the targets full tilt, kneeling, squating, sitting, all over the course of an 8-10 hour day. Neither poke me, neither are big enough to do...

    AR15 Charging Handle

    That's the whole point of it, these handles remove any need for side charging, which nullifies a major advantage of the platform- being well sealed against the ingress of mud and dirt.

    AR15 Charging Handle

    Neither of the two I have poke me in the chest, they are both fairly low profile pieces which is why I chose them over other models. I hate the standard charging handle in comparison.

    AR15 Charging Handle

    With respect I find the these newer charging handles like some of the ones previously listed to have greater utility than just as an aid to thise with reduced finger strength, although this is an additional benefit I hadn't considered. With a standard handle the best way to operate it is to use...

    AR15 Charging Handle

    You don't need one, it's an optional ergonomic improvement, one well worth undertaking IMO. With these handles one can charge the weapon with the edge of the palm from underneath with the offhand in a rapid and intuitive motion. I have extensive experience with a stock Colt 6920 and 6 years of...

    AR15 Charging Handle

    I have no idea, I didn't specify the source for small parts. I supplied the barrel, gas block and tube, BCG handguard trigger sights and furniture. Everything else was at Eddie's discretion.

    AR15 Charging Handle

    I dunno, whatever Eddie Gunks had laying around at the time I suspect, he assembled it for me. And now that I think upon it, it wasn't the catch but the plunger that was stuck in the depressed position. The rifle would have cycled, just that the bolt hold may not have reliably engaged, the...

    AR15 Charging Handle

    There is simply no gainsaying the ergonomic benefits of improved version charging handles over the milspec item. The reason for their development was due to breakages of the latch pin as a result of modern weapons handling doctrine in which the firing hand never leaves the grip and the offhand...

    AR15 Charging Handle

    Oh yes, on the NYGF build. Not sure what happened there, noticed the issue after a 2 month long stint in storage. Could have been an issue with the plunger/spring or possibly the receiver. It has been rectified, certainly nothing to do with the charging handle in any case.

    AR15 Charging Handle

    I think I'm on, or damn near, 10k rounds across two rifles with the Raptor. No problems. Not sure what problems a charging handle could possibly cause but............ I'm hard pressed to even think of a single malfunction in general with the Daniel Defense rifles, the only defect of the first...

    AR15 Charging Handle

    Raptor charging handle Geissele Airborne charging handle Of the two I have a slight preference towards the Geissele. It seems slightly more solid and robust. It also has that raised lip at the back to prevent gas from blowing back into your face. Chiefly of concern for suppressed use, not...

    .........Did you just "this" your own post? Dafuq?! Anyways @GTN the Raptor/Radian mentioned charging handle is a very solid choice. I also highly recommend the similarly priced Geissele charging handles. There is Super Charging Handle model and the Airborne model. The former is larger...

    Order ammo and have it shipped to a PA FFL?

    UPS stores typically won't knowingly process firearms or ammunition. @Justincase would have to find a willing place to drop ship to, but it wouldn't have to be an FFL.

    I have family In WI, that's where I might like to take it but WI doesn't allow NFA items I believe so I'd need to leave it as a pistol.

    Well, if your concern was having a short enough LOP for plate carriers this brace is definitely short enough for that. Ultimately all braces are a compromise. I am mulling e-filling for an SBR stamp but I may want to take it to Wisconsin which is a non NFA state so I might not.

    Just a place to talk about Kalashnikov rifles

    That does look nice BUT..... first the Galil hinge is proprietary so their would have to be an Ace specific version and the extension is polymer coated steel so it is an exceptionally strong and rigid setup and it also folds flat. Making this as small a package is important as it has to fit in...
