    I am looking to buy a trigger kit for my M&P full size but I need to remove my sights to do it. Cash is low so I can't buy a sight pusher and I don't want to spend money for an item that I will use one time. Does any one know how to build a sight pusher?
  4. Hunting, Fishing and Trapping
    I'm seriously considering going on a DIY elk hunt in CO, probably in 2015. Vacation time, money, and research won't allow next year. Has anybody done this before? If so, what unit did you go to? Were you successful? I'm looking at GMU 65. It seems to have pretty good success for OTC rifle...

    Greetings All: So, I'm looking into installing a security system to cover the house, detached garage and 2.5 acres. Any suggestions on brands/tech I should look at or do/don'ts ? - prefer DIY install - basic 'live' alarm monitoring - looking to do entry sensors on about a dozen windows and 3...
  7. Rifles
    This rrifle is stupid long. Is cutting the barrel ill advised? If so, why? I don't care about driving tacks at 300 yards. Only got it for stupid cheap ammo shooting and a fund to mod gun. Best way to cut a barrel DIY or is this best left to a pro? Although, I have a ton of bench tools, power...
  8. The AR-15
    Has anyone ever made their own trigger guard? I found some solid model files of the lower receiver, and think it'd be cool to make my own custom trigger guard, rather than use an off the shelf one (price isn't the driving factor here). I like the look/shape of winter guards, so I'm trying to...

    Well I had a fun night tonight working on a small project. I had purchased a stock for a new build but when it came it was the wrong color green. I was going to send it out and have it coated but I did not want to wait and figured this was a good time to learn a new technique for working with...

    I am in the final stages of my Rem 870 project and am beginning to decide on a finish. Based on my research, Cerakote seems to be the way to go for firearm re-finishing, However the cheapest quote I have got online is $255.. I am doing a single color (Sniper Grey) to my receiver, mag tube...

    A buddy of mine made a shooting lane on his property so I thought I'd make a range bench/table out of pallets. I wasn't going to spend money and pallets are readily available everywhere.
  15. DIY Projects and Builds
    I got into a conversation with a friend the other day about wanting a .410 shotgun for squirrel hunting and such. I also mentioned that I can't find what I want (pump) for a price that I want (reasonable ~$200 I'd be comfortable with). Maybe my expectations are just out of line, but that's not...

    I got tired of trying to find and purchase the perfect holster. Or better yet I ran out of money buying holsters for every possible situation. I loved all my store bought kydex holsters, for the most part, so I decided to try my hand at making some. After making a few with little to no real...

    I was at the range a couple of months ago shooting my .40 M&P compact when the white dot in the front sight came off. So today I finally got around to fixing that problem. It cost me $12 and a little time and I now have glow in the dark sights. The first picture you will see a lack of a white...

    So during my build process I decided I wanted to use Molly resin as the final coating. I came to this decision due to some of in the best firearms industry swear by it, and it looked to be a rather easy process. My only hurdle was that I had to figure out how to bake the guns after spraying as...

    I was looking for a better sight option for my PF9 and was not finding anything. I tried Nightsites and they pretty much suck during teh day and if not "charged" are even worse at night. So I bought a new rear site from Kel Tec....$1.00 no shipping. Drilled it out and slid HiVis fiber optics...
