    Need some help...I have an 11-87 sportsman. If I load four shells in to the magazine tube, manually operate the action the first shell moves in to battery and can be fired but the bolt locks to the rear and the next shell won't release from the magazine tube. This happens 80% of the time...
  2. Curios and Relics
    I'm kind of new to this legal game of "is this banned or that banned" crap in NY. I Just bought a Norinco SKS last week that has a fixed 20 round original magazine. While reading up on the feeding device ban crap, I found this: I wasn't aware that the feeding device itself could qualify as...
  3. Laws and Politics - Firearms/Self Defense/Weapons
    So if you disassemble your pre-bans into a pile of floor plates, springs, followers and casings are you in compliance if law sticks? It would seem to me that you would just be in possession of parts but nothing remotely being able to feed your semi automatic rifle. just looking for alternatives...
  4. Laws and Politics - Firearms/Self Defense/Weapons
    I know belts are considered a LCAFD but what about links? I know that ammo linked together is sometimes referred to as a belt but is it considered a belt legally? If yes than doesn't the SAFE Act ban all links seeing they cannot be permanently modified without destroying them. They, by design...

[...] Under the city Health Department's voluntary Latch On NYC initiative, 27 of the city's 40 hospitals have also agreed to give up swag bags sporting formula-company logos, toss out formula-branded tchotchkes like lanyards and mugs, and document a medical...
  7. The AR-15
    So my newly built AR is having some feeding issues. I originally thought it was the Orlite mags I was using but after yesterday it seems to be an ammo/under gassed issue. My issues are double feeds/jams and possible short strokes. This has been experienced with American Eagle (brass), and Tula...
  8. The AR-15
    I have 3 10 round smoke colored Black Dog mags that I have issues with feeding. They jamb the round every other round it seems. I searched on the net and I got some answers of sanding down the follower but it worked for some and others it did not. I also have 2 pre-ban 30 round steel Ceiner mags...

    I have noticed several questions on the forum recently focused on lubrication and maintenance of the carbine. So, I thought I'd post some generalized guidelines for maintenance, cleaning and lubrication. If followed, these guidelines will keep your carbine functioning optimally with minimum...

    I recently had the opportunity to review the GSG-5 from German Sport Guns, because when I saw it, I just had to go out and buy one! The GSG-5 is chambered in .22LR, and looks mistakingly like an MP5. The version we are allowed to have in New York State is the GSG-5 L, which has a 414mm barrel...
