If I were to buy this stock, 2098-02 Remington 700 LA A5 Stock Black | Red Hawk Rifles how difficult would it be to change onto a Remington 700? Do the trigger from the 700 just "fit...

    Hey everyone! Any tips on building an AR 10, is it just like building an AR 15? I'm new to building your on firearm, and not very knowledgeable on the parts. I'm at the level just above beginner, but not to the moderate knowledge level. Firearms in general is a great hobby and I enjoy...
  3. The AR-15
    Was looking at prices to piece together a 20" AR. Then started looking at AR pistols and they would actually be cheaper to build than a full sized one. I was looking at a 7" upper but would really want to get a 10.5" upper. do you think you could squeeze a 10.5" upper in and keep it all under 50...

    Short story, I allowed a friend to convince me that we could build AKs although neither of us ever have. The good news is, there is an AK build party we are attending in April, the guy running it seems experienced. We have purchased Romanian 7.62x39 Parts Kit with Headspaced New US Barreland...
  15. The AR-15
    To go on my pre-ban Colt lower, which has a pinned in sear block, which makes choosing a BCG somewhat difficult. Here's a couple of things I need help deciding on. For a barrel, I'm set on Daniel Defense 1:7" twist in 16" (so I can have removable FH/Comp). The only thing I'm having trouble with...

    I need to build one of those 2X4 workbenches so I can reload in my basement, but I have no clue how to even get started (aside from buying 2X4s that is). Has anyone here built one before? I guess I'm looking for some tips/blueprints/tool list so I can get this thing underway. Thanks!
  17. The AR-15
    Going to be building myself an AR shortly. Already have all the parts picked out, but have some legal/compliance questions and I seem to get slightly different answers from each person I've talked to. I apologize if these have already been answered somewhere in the forums. I'm going to be...

    I'm looking at a little rental in Upstate NY. I can't believe the craziness in regs these days. Warren County apparently passed some new energy regulations (driven by the feds I wouild assume) that would basically condemn the house I'm looking at. I need to do some research but A lot of crazy...
