I'm working on a Savage 10 build in a chassis that accepts AICS pattern magazines. AICS proper mags are pricey, and I've read about Ruger made AICS compatible mags not being capable of long term storage loaded (because rounds can fall out). How is the reliability of Magpul made AICS mags? I...
Building an AR and building my first one using something besides a milspec grip. I ordered the Palmetto State Armory MOE+ LPK When I installed the grip there was a HUGE gap at the rear part of the grip (that curved part behind the normal pistol grip). I took it back off and tried re-seating...

Midwest industries front and rear sight set - $174.95.
Magpul MBUS Gen...
Today I was at an indoor range that rents full auto. Typically, I can afford to shoot this, but now and again the owner and gunsmith will bring several weapons down and if it's just us there they will give us some time with the guns. Today was one of those days. I have decked my Bushi out with...
A couple of places like PSA and Trop have Troy magazines for around $7.
The lowest price I can find on pamgs are around $8 - $9.
At $7 each is there a reason not to stockpile Troy magazines?
Yes I know, when in doubt spend a couple of extra dollars and buy with confidence. From what I have...

Is anyone here using the Midwest Industries MCTAR-13 with a Magpul MS2 sling?
I am building a new lower and would like to try a different sling attachment than the Magpul ASAP.
Hello all, I am in the process of building a 10.5 inch AR-15 pistol. I was wondering if I can use Magpul hand guards on it or if the hand guard area will be too short to accommodate it. I can't seem to find a straight answer anywhere. Thanks in advance!
I am getting ready to start tweaking an AR in my collection. Right now all it has is a magpul forearm stock, magpul flip up sight, and a magpul MS3 sling.

Well, like many people, I succumbed to the great firearm/ammo panic the past 6 months. Even though I already owned an AR15, I decided that I wanted to build another. Or at least acquire most of the parts and finish it later. I obviously picked a bad time to do this... :mad:
