    Building a new ar and want to use a railed gas block. What size free float do I need? I know it's 9 inches for a drop in. Is it the same for a free float or do you use a 10 inch tube? Also I have a stainless hbar can I still use a slim tube. Thanks

    I'd like to know if I built up a lower using this kit and made it a fixed mag, would it be legal in New Yorkistan? Is there any specification as to barrel length? Thanks...
  3. Bow Hunting
    I have a 2014 Bowtech carbon knight and I want to shorten up my draw length a little to get a bit more comfortable. Thats easy enough to do without a bow vise. But my question is will this change the cam timing / tuning in general? If i shorten by say an inch is it going to have to be...

    Hey folks, What is the shortest barrel I am legally allowed to put on my 870 express? Want to purchase a short slug barrel to convert my 870 into a HD gun. Is overall length of 26" where it is truly at these days?
  5. AR - [Rifles]
    I built an upper using a Mega Stainless 16" midlength barrel.. but Im thinking of swapping it to a 18" rifle length. I already have a 20" rifle length stainless AR, 2 other 16" midlength 4150 ARs and a custom 4150 chf 15" with a pinned brake making it 16". Anyone want to talk me out of the...
  6. Reloading
    I reload for my 1984 Marlin 44 mag. I try to keep my brass around 1.275 +- .003, but now I have a bunch of Hornady Leverevolution brass. They are between 1.255 - 1.265 which is below the max length for regular 44 mag. brass. If I reload them with XTP's or 240 gr. hard cast lead, the OAL is...

    The buffer spring "Twang" on my rifle length build is starting to bother me. Any advise on how I can reduce this? Anyone try this chrome silicon spring wire for $8: http://damageindustr...er-action-rifle Or the expensive JP option: http://www.jprifles.com/ (Rifle...
  8. Bolt Action [Rifles]
    What is the minimum length allowed in NY for a bolt action rifle? Does a muzzle brake count toward the length?
  9. AR - [Rifles]
    Say someone had a a registered lower under NYS Unsafe Act as a Evil assault weapon and a 10.5in barrel for an AR and they added a 5.5in muzzle break to that barrel for a total of 16in would it be legal? or would it be a SBR? Would the Break have to be pinned?
  10. Break Action [Shotguns]
    I have an old 10 gauge sxs. When I stick a piece of metal down the breach & feel the ridge of the chamber, it only measures 2 11/16 inch. Shouldn't it be longer than that?
  11. Semi-Auto [Handguns]
    What is the advantages of a full length guide in a 1911  vs a  short piece guide, I just replace my springs and put a full length in it as well.  Curious if it effects the  firing haven't got to the Range  yet.
  12. AR - [Rifles]
    Ok here's my question. Say you had two identic ars. Both have the identical style barell. You are shooting the same round. How much of an impact would a novice shooter like myself notice at 300 yards? How much would an advAnced shooter notice? I had a conversation with someone today who told me...
  13. AR - [Rifles]
    hey guys, Im beginning to research some uppers for my ar build, just a question for y'all. Is there a restriction on barrel length? what is the normal barrel length? ive seen 12", 14.7", 16", 20".... Being new to the AR scene, quite honestly, I have no clue what is a normal length, what is a...
  14. AR - [Rifles]
    Quick question, I have 1 upper that has a mid length gas tube, the price was right so I snagged it from a friend. It doesn't seem to work right on one of my lowers. The one with a carbine length buffer tube seems to short cycle and not lock, the other one I think is a rifle length. I got that...
  15. Revolvers [Handguns]
    When it comes to a revolver with 5.5" or 6.5" barrel length, how much will it affect your accuracy? If at all. Whats your views?

    Carbine Length Free Float Bull Barrel Upper Recommendations? Thoughts?
  19. Semi-Auto [Rifles]
    So now that I've had my mini for a while and been getting accustomed to shooting it I noticed today that since I'm tall and have sorta long arms that what I really need to shoot better is for the rifle to sit against my shoulder better. The butt pad needs to come back at least an inch...
