Re: Non-.45 1911's...

That little thing looks like fun. Are factory barrels available? Would a ramped barrel be needed? If I'm not mistaken, that's a hot little round. I'd assume that it would feed like a champ due to the bottleneck. You're putting very cool, but expensive, ideas in my head. I'll probably build a 9 as a...

Re: Non-.45 1911's...

Yep, the classic Soviet sub gun round of the 1930's...hardly any magazine tweaking needed when using the .38 Super mags...you will need to reduce the original COL of the Tokarev round which is usually longer than the max length of today's .38 Super magazines of around 1.300", nothing a sizing die ca...

Re: .308 Lower is not mil spec

There are several manufactures of 308 AR's out there, so It is true there are no "Mil-Spec" dimensions to speak of...however, there are three basic AR 308 "patterns": >The original Colt/Armalite AR-10 pattern. >The Stoner/SR25 pattern. >The DPMS LR 308 pattern. There is also the new DPMS Gen II vers...

Re: Non-.45 1911's...

To me the 9mm Nato/9x19 round makes the most sense...lowest recoil, lowest prices, highest availability...also, plenty of quality 1911 9mm parts and magazines floating around lgs' and on the web... Finishing up a build soon using a custom 1911 running the Soviet Tokarev round (a real fireball) and u...

Re: Forged or Milled?

Howdy, I believe you are asking the difference between forged or billet...Forged is generally stronger vs. Billet, and Forged tends to be lighter vs. Billet, as Billet generally is not heat treated when it comes as a solid Aluminum block...So Billet makes up for that difference in strength by being ...

Re: VaderSpade’s 80% AR-15 build - Milling, Etching, & Anodi

Wow, Incredible work VaderSpade. Here's a question? How thick is the TM AR-15 Jig when everything is assembled for machining out the FCG pocket? I have a small mill (Sherline) and am not sure if my vise will open far enough to accept it. I may have to use step blocks instead. IIRC, It's around 3" ...

Re: Using a Benchtop CNC Mill...Taig

Thanks Dr69er... Having the Right tool for the job, makes things so much Easier!!! But once you get deeper into machining, you are always buying more tools and cutters.... :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: Stuart The most expensive part of owning a Milling Machine/Lathe is all the Tooling t...
