  1. The AR-15
    Hey there everyone. I am thinking of buying the parts needed to assemble an AR-15 compliant to NYS law. I dont have $1000 to drop, but $600-700 is do-able. I also am thinking of going with an 80% lower and milling it to finish. Here is what I am thinking: 80% polymer lower from: The eighty...
  2. Pistol Permits
    I own a co-op. Our complex consists of several buildings and some common areas. As a shareholder I have use of the common areas, subject to house rules, and access to all other buildings for laundry and storage. I don't technically own any real property, just shares in the cooperative. I'm...

    To her death...first a homeless man pushes a woman in front of a train around the corner and now this. Sad times we live in, unfortunately I think there will be a lot more suicides as stress becomes overwhelming due to the economy and the state of our country.
  4. Curios and Relics
    aim sells re-activated receivers (good quality, same receivers that gibbs uses) I would do all the work except the installing the barrel. I know my way around these rifles (I was in charge of repairing the broken drill rifles in my jrotc unit). I've always wanted a 1903 and I think this is the...
  5. Curios and Relics
    Has anyone built a rifle (Mosin, Mauser, etc) using their FFL03? Any tips on not violating the curio and relic status? I love working on old guns and I only recently recived my FFL03, so I am not fully educated in it's intricacies.
  6. Firearms in the News "High powered weapons" or low information reporting? Smells like the perpetual media agenda to me.

    Gonna tell this story now...leaving some details out because of ongoing proceedings. Last Friday (8/9/13) I was my yard building a swing set for my 3 year old boy when two men came out of the dark and drew guns on me from 10 feet away. This story will shock you. I live in Albany county in an...

  9. The AR-15
    I'm going to drop some cash on a new upper for my Allstar Tactical AR15. I have a 4x40 mil dot scope that I will use on it, and it'll be a long(ish) range target upper. What barrel do you think i should go with? What type of rail system should I get? Should I get a bipod for it? Let me know...

    NYU student busted for building air rifles in dorm room - I realize I am new here, so please forgive me if this isn't the greatest first post ever. It's just that I read this article today, and it really felt like a little bit of my soul died. I recognize that the student broke the...
  12. The AR-15
    So now that I just picked up a stripped Mega upper, I'm gonna build it into a 6.8 SPC upper. I've reviewed the 6.5 as well as 300 blackout options but believe the 6.8 SPC will fulfill my swamp donkey slaying needs as well as others down the road. Barrels: Have looked at JSE with 1:10 twist and...

    I've been wanting to build a custom Glock. I know After the April deadline you can't buy a new gun with 10 round mags. I was going to buy a frame, then the slide and barrel, and use mags I already have. Do you think this will be possible to buy all the parts individually?
  17. Laws and Politics - Firearms/Self Defense/Weapons
    I want to build a custom glock this summer. Will I still be able to buy a frame, then slide and barrel separately. Obviously no magazines are shipped when you buy just these parts. Any thoughts on this working?

    If you own the stripped lower before the ban, can you build it into a gun? Can it have any "evil" features, like being black and scary? Serously, what's the deal with stripped lowers?
