    Help me out here. I created this quick and dirty video showing how to load an AK (Romanian) drum. I did this because the others that I have seen overly complicate how to load the neck. If you have experience with these drums, let me know what you think. Does it seem helpful? Thanks in advance...

    Here is my question...I have 2 m1a's and an appropriate number of magazines and ammo to support the platform; but I keep seeing these nice looking PTR 91's at cdnn for $849. They have 16" barrels and I found magazines for sale locally for $4 each. Is it worth it to get this and learn and...

    Colt has finally released a civilian version of the M16 A4. Going price seems to be around $1,100 from various sites. http://www.budsgunshop.com/catalog/product_info.php/cPath/36_140/products_id/84310/Colt+AR15A4+Rifle+Semi-Auto+2235.56+20%22+30%2B1+A2+Stk The question is, how does the colt...

    I have been told to carry the SKS over many other guns for a few different reasons (weight, for instance) I'm just wondering why this weapon is so much better. Any info would be appreciated.

    I would like to make my next purchase. My budget is at around $1000 Can you recommend me a great rifle. At this point I don't have that much preference between bolt action, semi-auto or lever action Basically I want you guys to try and "sell" me different guns and calibers because I'm having...

    This is an opinion piece on the 300 Blackout. A couple of days ago I posted a question about Palmetto State Armory on the survivalistboards facebook page. There were several suggestions to go with the 300 blackout instead of the 223/5.56mm. This is my reply to those suggestions...

    Hey everybody. I just ordered the complete MOE lower build kit from Palmetto State Armory and I ordered a complete upper from Midway USA. This is my first AR-15 ever. I am probably going to get the PSA stripped lower but does anybody know of anything cheaper that isn't lacking in quality? Thanks!

    So my two year anniversary with my girlfriend is coming up and we decided to focus on material gifts this year. We set a $200-400 price range and she's been asking what I want. SO.... -Savage Axis 30-06 rifle (debate encouraged as I don't know enough about their quality) -ESEE 6 -Cold Steel...

    So, with doomsday just around the corner I've been looking for an appropriate rifle. I've hunted with a bolt action .308 since age 12 and already have a decent stock of ammo and reloading supplies. I like what I see in the PTR-91 with a 16 inch barrel. Never shot one but I hear the recoil is...

    Im new here to the forum, so I figured I'd ask a question that I've had for about a year now.... It seems that a lot of the complaints from Iraq and Afghanistan are coming from troops that are reporting that the 5.56 doesn't have enough stopping power, sometimes taking 2,3,4,5 shots to stop the...

    It seems we are on a never ending cycle of AR vs AK. Ask any simple question about either and it turns a good post into a should have bought an AK should have bought an AR. We all made weapons choices based on our wants and needs and our belief in future events. I like them both heck I'm on the...

    I have been looking and researching and talking with people about bolt action high powered rifles. And Ive come to the conclusion that when i find the right one I would perfer a .308. A couple days ago I found this, it is the Mossberg 308, 100 ATR Night Train Special Purpose Bolt-Action Rifle...

    I'm asking specifically for the most reliable ammunition for an AR15 (Mine will be a Mil Spec 1/7 twist AR). What 5.56 Ammo do you count on in case the SHTF situations, which ammo has the least FTF rounds. Where do you buy it? I've been looking at ammo for a few weeks trying to decide what...

    First, let me introduce myself (this is my first post asking a question). I'm Mike, I'm 20, I've been in college for 2 years, and after getting both bored by the courses and disgusted by the lack of simple common sense among both staff and faculty at this school, enlisted in the US Army last...

    Well, time to jump on the PSA bandwagon I guess. I can't find fault with any of their products, and the prices are incredible. I even got to handle one at the local gun store and it had fantastic fit and finish along with a good combat trigger. Here's what I've ordered: $549 - 16" FN...

    Yeah, other guns are better. But what about a 10 round fixed mag semi-auto. Keep in mind I live in NY, so we cant have tapco mags for the SKS's. I got roughly a half dozen of them mostly private sales too. I have one Saiga conversion in 7.62x39 and I recently bought a S&W M&P 15. I also...

    hey, want an opinion... i love the old 30 carbine rifles... want one to add to the collection. but i am trying to add things that make sense. I got a feeling this isnt a good rifle for most situations... but it is still a 30 caliber. Anyway is .30 caliber generally not that common? i dont...

    While researching the purchase of a new AR-15, I came across several forum topics on the M4 Carbine VS midlength debate. It seems that the midlength rifle is a little more reliable then the M4, mainly due to pressures in gas system. The question I have, in most of the debates people keep using...

    Now I know there's plenty of other threads about this, but I like the idea of having one of my own. That being said... This summer when my next birthday comes around I plan on buying a new rifle. I recently saw the Ruger Gunsite Scout Rifle in 308. Right off the bat, this rifle looks COOL. I...
