    Well, that magical day finally came. My two neat little packages came home with me, along with their overpriced tax stamps. Now comes the daunting job of deciding if, where, and how I am going to get all these muzzles threaded. I figured I would start with the simplest job, my Rem 700 SPS TAC...

    I'm pushing 50 and have spent my career in upper management in higher education. I'm starting to worry about having a skill that I can fall back on if the industry goes bad, if SHTF, or if I just get too old to do what I do now. I've started exploring becoming a professional gunsmith but can't...

I've tried a rubber band, steel wool, drilling a new slot, super glue with another...

    Hi, so I finally settled on a used Legion Arsenal SGL21. It came with a Midwest Industries Extended Quad Rail attached. Unfortunately, in order to put the quad rail on, the previous owner had to cut the two point sling attachment off from the disc around the barrel (sorry, not sure what this...

    I'm disassembling a bullpup-modified AK47, but I'm having trouble with the two (yes two -- it's modified) trigger pins. So, I'm looking for some help figuring out how to remove them. First, the forward trigger pin -- the one that holds the actual trigger in. This one has a strange kind of pin...

    last night i had the pleasure of a detailed breakdown, cleaning and re-assembly of a sig P220 (45acp). the two parts i did not take apart was the magazine release and that spring-thingy that keeps the hammer from contacting the firing pin when it's de-cocked. i did the breakdown and the...

    Hello all, I've owned an AR-15 for about a year now, I know how to do basic field strips of the weapon and have tried to keep it clean. However I've noticed that there is a significant buildup of carbon in the trigger assembly, inside the parts of the bolt/bolt carrier, and around the space...
