    So I was talking to my Gunnery Sergeant about my 5.56 AK and how Mags are really expensive. 5.56 AK74 pattern magazines are very rare/expensive, not to mention the added bonus that they must be limited to 10 rounds (I'm stationed in San Diego, California). Well that got my gears turning and...

    As you know king Cuomo doesn't like satandard capacity magazine so he has put a limit on what responsible firearm owners can carry. This obviously doesn't affect criminals who are laughing at these gun laws. Some of you spent a lot of money in preban standard capacity magazines so don't get rid...

    USPS finally snapped out of it and got me my package 4 days late. It's a .40 Conversion barrel for my G20C by Lone Wolf. I have never used a conversion barrel before. I loaded up 10 rounds and took it out. All 10 fired and hit their targets, and the slide locked back. I'm happy, but one thing...

    dose anyone know if you can convert a Kimber stainless 11 target from 45acp to 9mm? I love 45,but 9mm is so much cheaper,and has a lot less recoil.

    I recently got a G34 (same frame as the 17/22) Gen4 and found an Advantage Arms 22LR Conversion Kit, but the kit is for a "Gen 3". I emailed Advantage Arms about the compatibility of the Gen3 kits vs. Gen4 kits and this was my response... "We do make a special recoil spring assembly with a...
  8. Pistol Permits
    As I said in my intro, I've had my pistol permit for 22 years now, and now that Broome Co is finally becoming CCW friendly with a new judge there are several places offering the course. It was at first just one place out of Rochester. I hear the Binghamton Police Dept is offering one, does...
  9. Ammunition and Reloading
    Ok. Everyone has their opinions on 45 small primer brass vs 45 large primer brass. I've read the gambit of advantages and disadvantages. One is more accurate, less recoil, burns cleaner and so on. I really don't care about the arguments. My reason for converting the brass from one to the other...
  10. Rimfire Handguns and Rifles
    anyone see a problem with this legal wise? besides the hi-caps. i don't see any ban features.. It is not automatic because you are pulling the trigger every time on the guns as you turn the crank. anyone have any experience putting these together?
  11. Shotguns
    I have a friend who is about to buy an old police surplus 870 and wants to convert it to a trap gun. He wanted to know if he can swap out the original barrel to a trap barrel without an issue. I told him that I think he can but I'm not sure as my knowledge of shotguns is limited. Anyone with...
  12. Pistol Permits
    Does anyone know what the regs are for a getting a conversion barrel in NYC? Are they allowed ? Do I need to wait the 90 days and get a purchase authorization or can I go to 1PP and have them add an additional caliber onto my existing permit? Thanks to all.

  14. Pistol Permits
    So, I bought a Glock a while back. While getting it added to my permit, I told the clerk that I was planning to get a conversion barrel (backordered at the time), and asked if I could get the 2nd caliber listed on my permit now. She said just wait until I got it, and I could just submit an...

  16. The AR-15
    While we still have time. AR Stoner magazines and many other 5 round mags use a stacked spring method of limiting the round count. They use the exact same body and follower. I recomend a new spring as streaching the original stacked coil will result poor performance. I have converted a good few...

    I'm looking to get a Bulgarian .22 conversion kit for a Makarov PM. Its a smaller barrel inserted into the main barrel of the pistol. The .22 barrel is held in place with a screw on nut at the end of the barrel. For a better idea of what I am talking about... Makarov .22 Conversion Kit Since...
