    Maybe. I've read that the B A R bi-pod was tossed at the first opportunity.

    Running 12 miles in 3 hours with an 80 lb pack for 6 weeks with a purpose would get one in shape.

    Here is a Marlin Rockwell BAR we had a while back. It was my Dad's favorite gun when he was in the army. He fired this one and chipped a bone in his elbow on the shooting bench. I cannot imagine lugging this thing around all day with a bunch of magazines. Nor can I imagine lugging around an M60 or 240B with belts of ammo.

    Nioce!

    Looks like Friday the bill in VA could be heard. Hope this stupid shit gets the trash can as well as everyone behind it.

    Fingers crossed for our brothers and sisters in VA!

    GUNS!!!!!!!!

    I built my first AR. Sort of not happy with the play between the upper and lower. Psa upper, Core lower. May try an Aero receiver at some point. Good learning project. Amazing design. Like the 20”.

    Can't go wrong with Aero. They manufacture for a lot of the higher end names.

    There is a device called an Accu-wedge that will tighten it up.

    I saw you can also buy shims to put on the front pivot pin. Which do you prefer?

    Is that the little rubber thingey that wedges behind the takedown pin? I tried using one in the past - wasn't thrilled with it. Ended up replacing the lower with a Mega which has a small set screw to take up any play between lower & upper.

    CE: Go with the Aero. They have the same type of set screw as the Mega's. You won't be disappointed.

    ^^ This. I know about the Accu-Wedge, never used one. Go with first hand experience.

    I never had or built an AR that I thought needed one. Even with a bunch of PSA's in the vault.

    Just picked up a Browning Citori 28 gauge on the cheap. A ding or two, but nothing terrible. Will make a great dove gun.

    I've found it can happen when you mix a forged lower with a billet upper or vice versa, but it often means that the upper is out of spec. Out of spec or worn takedown/pivot pins can cause it too.

    The set screw on these lowers is under the grip and puts pressure on the bottom of the rear lug of the upper to make it nice and snug against the takedown pin eliminating play.

    My old man carried one of those in the Korean War, he used to say they usually made the small guys pack that around he never really talked about it much a couple times he did mention the human wave attacks the Chinese threw at them which sounded pretty fucked up

    That's a great gun. You're a far better shot than me though. I might could use a 28ga on quail, but I need all 12 gauges of shot and powder to hit those jet-propelled mournings.

    Very rough, pronounced reset. I may build a new receiver and trigger. Or maybe I put it together wrong. Ran good though. Really lucky to have a $4 range that they just spent 25mm on.

    They tabled the gun ban/grab infringement crap for a year so small victory there. They still have the Red Flag shit to fight in VA as well as socialists pushing this unconstitutional terrorism.

    Gun owner here. No idea what's in the VA bill. I am in favor of the concept of Red Flag laws. However, they need to be well written with very clear criteria, including the process for getting ones guns back, at no expense to the gun owner if the owner is found not to be a danger, somebody was falsley accusing, etc. Some drunk POS abusing his wife should definitely have his guns put in lockdown for a spell. Unfortunately it's not a stretch that the laws being enacted are not as fair as I have in mind. And there's a simple reason. The NRA lobby advocating for unrestricted gun ownership has in effect removed themselves from the debate and a chance to craft better laws that actually address the issues they are purporting to address. This all or nothing attitude is going to result in nothing, which sucks for the rest of us.
