  1. The AR-15
    I'm in the process of building my AR, already built the complete lower with the FRS-15 stock. I also purchased their barrel cap. My plan for the upper is purchase a complete upper. Obviously with the exception of the varmint or bull barreled uppers they all come with some type of flash...
  2. Rifles
    Hi, I'm looking for a new rifle for next season deer hunting. Came across a 308 I like but comes in 18" bull and 20" light weight. Can someone school me in barrel length.? will a short barrel loos a lot of velocity/accuracy? I'd like something good up to 300 yards. Thanks in advance.
  3. Announcements and Site Help
    May not be the correct place to ask, is there a limit to how long a thread post can be? Thanks in advance
  4. Rifles
    My search for a 9mm Carbine has not panned out as of today. I have been looking for a Ruger PC9 or a Marlin Camp9 in that order of preference. I am waiting to hear more about the 9mm M1 from Citadel. I suspect it may be a lower grade replica. I know nothing about the company. I believe...

    A question guys,sorry to be a pain....My 870 Express has the 18" barrel on it....Will that 2 rd tube extension stick out past it ?? Otherwise Midway sells the 870 Barrels 18.5" and comes with the breacher choke.....But that is $160.00 I was hoping not to spend....Thanks a bunch....

    I posted this documentary before, however it's been reworked and here is the full length version.
  7. Laws and Politics - Firearms/Self Defense/Weapons
    Pardon my ignorance on this, I've looked around quite a bit and can't seem to find a yes or no, do we have an overall length restriction? I know barrel length for a rifle is 16" but I can't seem to find if there is an overall limit.

  9. The AR-15
    I searched around but couldn't find anything definitive. What does CAR gas tube mean? Is this carbine length (short). I think I ordered the wrong size and want to order another one now so I will have it for the weekend. Thanks.
  10. Shotguns
    I have been reading about some of the various issues with the Mossberg 930 spx . One of them was a magazine spring that was either too long or too short. I just purchased a new 930spx just a couple of days ago, haven't shot it yet . Out of curiosity I checked th length of my spring and it is...

    I have a stevens 820B That i will be designating as my home defense shotgun, what is the minimum legal length i can cut the barrel down to?
  12. Ammunition and Reloading
    Spec says max 1.760 and trim length 1.750 As Im checking the cases some are coming up at 1.745 or 1.740 are these OK? If so how short can they be before they are too short?
  13. The AR-15
    so i bought myself a spikes upper and a JD machine tech lower. now i'm looking for a lpk and a barrel. i found a lpk from PSA that uses DPMS parts and incluides a MOE grip, are the DPMS parts decent to use or should i spend the extra money and get other ones (if i can find any in stock that...
  14. The AR-15
    I get that twist rate of the rifling will dictate how heavy a load can be, but at what point does the barrel length come into play? I tried searching and came up empty. It's Friday, so it's possible I just missed it. Specifically, I have an 18" barrel with a 1:8 twist. What SHOULD I be...
  15. The AR-15
    So my first build was a 20" 6.8 SPC with a Vltor EMOD stock neutered to the No 2 position, which is roughly 1" shorter than my RRA NY ban compliant stock. I like it and it's comfortable but it might be better configured with a longer stock given caliber and barrel length (longer range target...
  16. The AR-15
    First am I correct in saying that the overall length for a NY post ban needs to be 26"? I plan on using a 16" barrel with a fixed stock. I was looking at the ACE stocks and was liking the ARFX-E but at 7.25" I wasn't sure if that was going to cut it in the end. Does the compensator add to the...
  17. The AR-15
    Hey everyone, I own a stag arms, model 2. This may sound like a stupid question but i'm 6'2 and was wondering is there any rule of thumb about where your stock should be based on your height? Is there anyway to determine whether or not your stock is too long or too short? My current stock is...
  18. Other Weapons

  19. Rifles
    Longer rifle barrel length does not make a rifle more accurate from an internal ballistics standpoint. The quality of a barrel does, however. What a longer barrel does give is more stability in a shooting position due to weight and fulcrum balance. A longer barrel will give higher velocities and...
  20. Rifles
    I just ran some velocity comparisons between a 14.5-inch barrel and a 20-inch barrel on AR platforms. I used an Oehler 35P chronograph with a 4-foot spacing. Each test included 10-rounds fired. Following are the results: M193, 55-grain ball (Lake City) 14.5” Average Velocity = 2,948 fps 20.0”...
