    Should my next deer rifle be a 308 or 270 Winchester? Typical shots are no more than 100 yards Already have a 308 Winchester in an FN/FAL Game is wild pig and whitetail deer The big question is if I want to add 270 Winchester to my stockpile. My dad has a 270, and my son is "planning" on...

    This is something that was only talked about, but here it is in real life. News reports something like 48% of states are battling an out of control pandemic. The United States set a new record of 77,000 new cases in 24 hours. Fascist Antifa (they are the thing they claim to fight against)...

    How many AR-15s, AK47s, FALs... are enough? The title of the thread is battle rifles. Lets skip the semantics and splitting hairs and group all semi-automatic medium and large rifle calibers together. If it was designed for a military role since the 1940s, how many are enough? The issue...

    Someone recommend a good optic for a Marlin 336 lever action in 30-30 Winchester. I am currently looking at a Burris Fullfield II 2x-7x-35mm. Over the decades my "go to" optics have been Nikon. They have provided years of reliability on various rifles my family owns. Then there is the...

    In 2016 I built a predator hunting rifle with a Palmetto state armory mid-length Freedom upper. It has been sitting in the closet for the past year and only has a few rounds through it. Took it to the sand pit, and it is getting 5 inch groups with 62 grain Federal. Here is the full write up -...

    Local gun store has a Ruger American Rifle in 308 Winchester for something like $450. I do not remember the "exact" price, but it was somewhere in that price range. Camo stock Scope mounts No scope. I am thinking about putting a rifle on lay away for an early christmas present to myself. I...

    Has anyone tried this? And maybe a review? http://www.brownells.com/rifle-parts/stock-parts/buttstocks/ak-47-zhukov-s-stock-folding-prod75053.aspx The Magpul Zhukov-S Stock is a no-compromise folding stock for the modern AK. I see the reviews on Brownells, but wanted to hear from the folks here.

    I have a Harrington & Richardson Model 865 Plainsman bolt action 22 rifle. It is a good rifle. It belonged to my grandmother, who gave it to my dad, who gave it to me. While looking up information on the Harrington & Richardson Model 865 Plainsman I read that it had no collectors value...

    My friend sent me a new SAR 2. I say new because he purchased it NIB circa 2003 (The date on the front trunion is 2002). He NEVER fired it and because he knew I love AK's, he sent it (and 5 30 rnd mags) to me. I took it straight to my shop and began..... Chucked it in the lathe and thread...

    I took the plunge and bought a Palmetto State Armory freedom upper. The price was right. Now I have to see if the quality is right. From what I have been reading, the Palmetto State Armory freedom uppers are made by PSA, but are not chrome lined barrels. In all reality, how many shooters...

    Several months ago I was out walking on the property with my AR-15 when I noticed an unusual rattle. Upon inspection the nuts had backed off my red dot optic and it were loose on the rail. One of the nuts had fallen off and had been lost. I made a trip to lowes in Jasper Texas, found a nut...

    I have a line on a nearly-new Arsenal SLR105 for $800. It looks brand new with an MI rail and VLTOR stock, along with five Circle 25 mags. I've been coveting the 5.45x39 round for a few years now and know it's a highly capable "battle" round. That said, I have zero ammo in that caliber and this...

    Long story not very short, traded even up a Ruger 20GA OU shotgun for a Core 15 AR platform. Swapped out the front ramp for a low profile gas block and the front forearm for a 12 inch Getaux key mod forearm. Topped it off with a Primary Arms ACSS 1X6, rubber butt pad for the extending stock, etc...

    I'm looking at constructing my first AR build over the next few months and I've been searching around for a lower to start with. Since I'm on a budget I've been trying to keep the expenses (not including FFL transfer) to under $100. I've been thinking about going with one of the Anderson Arms...

    There are probably tens of thousands of these upper receivers collecting dust all across the nation. My AR-15 upper made during the assault rifle ban is off a Bushmaster. 1:9 twist, no flash hider, no M4 feed ramps, no bayonet lug and heavy barrel (not M4 profile). I have put a lot of...

    I have a friend who just recently came out as a wannabe survivalist LOL He want's to buy a rifle, he already owns a handgun and shotgun. I took him to the range and let him shoot every one of my rifles, and he has decided that he wants an AR15. I tried to push him towards a Remington 700 in...
