    Take your pick, the PTR-91 or the FN/FAL. Which one would you choose and why? Both rifles have a quality reputation, both fire 308 winchester, and both rifles are "about" the same price. The PTR-91: From the PTR website PTR G.I. model - Item # 915300 Suggested retail price: $999.00 flash...

    I'm going to buy a rifle off a buddy of mine next week. He has a Colt Le6920, a Smith and Wesson,and a Bushmaster. All are carbines with 16" barrels. He wants a grand for the Colt and a hundred or so less for the others. The frontrunner for me is the Colt. Is it that much better than the...

    Going to look at a DPMS LR308 this week. I don't know much about them and am looking for advice and suggestions. What is a fair price for one in 95%+ condition?

    Take a look at Ruger's latest piston offering dubbed the SR-556CLA. The "C" is for carbine and the "LA" is for light adaptive rail. This one's very similar to the SR-556C with the differences being the forend itself and the way the forend is attached to the barrel. The CLA uses two large...

    I've been shooting my SR556C rather regularly in the year or so I've owned it and just reached the 5,000 round mark. Most of this has been on semi- but I have fired several hundred rounds of this on a select fire lower. In all this time, the gun has been accurate and reliable with the only...

    For those of us in those 'other' states - what are the options of pre-ban higher than 10rd capacity mags? I've seen the 20rd fixed (are they reliable?) and the variations on duckbill mags. Are there pre-ban versions and how can they be identified? Can the duckbills be used without any...

    Went to a local gun store to see if they had a new Saiga 7.62x39. Found this instead (hey, I was looking for Russian; I found Russian). It is a partial Bubba in that someone removed the bayonet, lost the cleaning rod, and painted the stock black. The good news is that they did a good job on the...

    I want to sing the praises of the Marlin 795. It is a semi-auto .22 LR that can be purchased for about $140, and that doesn't include the $25 rebate from Marlin. It is very accurate and reliable. It comes with sling studs installed, and the bolt locks open on the last shot. It's a great...
  11. M14 and M1A Talk
    There are so many conflicting posts & replies here regarding which ammunition is correct for the Springfield M1A. Some people say either round is ok, some insist there is a significant difference between the two. What's worse is that the rifle is often listed at places like Buds Guns or Gun...

    Hello PU Friends: I'm currently considering getting an SKS rifle to add my collection. I must admit, I'm a complete "newbie" when it comes to this rifle. That said, I've been watching many videos and checking out various web links to find all the good information out there. But, as I'm sure...

    Hello all, new to the forum here. I have a question for a 6.8 SPC build I am going to start later this year. I am going to go with a billet upper and lower set. My question is which lower is a better value, I am looking for functionality first, but I am also looking at aesthetics all things...

    There's a company that will be soon coming out with a bullpup stock for the SKS. This is a all-new bullpup stock. The name of the company is Shernic Gun Works. Here is the link: http://www.sgworks.com

    I have a couple of bushmasters that lack flash hiders. What's the best way to install and what supplier would you suggest? Do I need to thread the barrels or do they make FH that can be fixed to the barrel without the hassel of threading? The end of the barrels have been milled down but no...

    I just took my brand new DPMS 308 out for it's first range session. The rifle shoots great groups but jams every time I get to the next to the last round in the mag. Both new mags came with the rifle. It doesn't matter if I only put 5 rounds or load all 19, it still jams on the next to last...

    Hey all, I am wanting to build an Ar in 6.8 and I am thinking of making it a Gas-Piston setup from CMMG in mid-length. Anybody have any opinions/experience with any piston setup? Or possibly this setup? Are they good or bad, how is quality, is it worth the money, etc.? Thanks in advance. TG

    There are so many choices that it is hard to make a decision. I don't think that I want a fixed front sight since I plan to mount an optic (eventually an ACOG) and don't want to see the front sight post through the optic. I would also like to mount a front vertical grip and maybe a light...

    Hey folks, this is just one of them bad days. I'm just getting over the shock of discovering the bolt carrier is breaking in half. Calling Ruger tomorrow. Something around 400 rounds fired. No evedence yet of bolt tilt. Well I'm sick, going to bed.
