  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...

  5. AR Rifles

  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...

    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?

  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...

  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...
