My test has data from 35gr to 90gr jacketed bullets and every commercially available cast bullet mould I could find that would fit and function in an AR15 magazine. I thought about organizing the data in a more presentable format and making it available to the public, but I've got other priorities. I will say this: the old wive's tale about lead bullets in AR15s plugging up the gas port is complete poop.Quote:
I would *love* to see that data. I've seen two other tests that show no measurable differences between the two with 55gr and 62gr bullets. If you have something proving the contrary, I would love to publish it for others to see.
Depends on the ammunition used and how much coffee I had that morning.Quote:
At what range do you see the shift of POI/POA? 300 yards? 400 yards? 500 yards?
That may be the case in some, but I've been on ranges where the castle nut has loosened. Your quoted torque spec unit is wrong. That was a misprint in the TM and was later corrected.Quote:
I suspect your customers have loosened their castle nuts. I've never seen a properly seated nut back off -- ever. None of my rifles have them staked these days because I remove the staking to swap stocks out and I've never seen one back off. If it did, I would restake it. At 40 inch/lbs of torque it's not coming off.
I thoroughly inspect each weapon I bring in before it's put on the shelf for sale. I wouldn't expect anything less from a dealer I buy a firearm from.Quote:
...and you checked every one for slight ledges. Uh-huh. I'm having a hard time swallowing that particular pill.
Brownells sells a lot of tools that aren't necessary for gunsmithing jobs. Lee Precision also sells trimming tools for pistol brass, though it is entirely unnecessary. Brownells main objective is to make a profit by selling tools and equipment for gunsmiths. Key word being profit. If they can sell something and make money doing it, they will. It doesn't have to be necessary, but that's the job of the marketing department.Quote:
I guess that's why Brownells sells this tool, because it's only used by poor assemblers? Curious.
AR-15/M16/AR-STYLE .308 GAS TUBE WRENCH | Brownells
So they modified a set of pliers to do the same thing, I fail to see the issue here.
What do I use to install or remove the gas tube on ARs? My hands. Never ruined a gas tube.
Colt 6920 street price is $1,050 (though I sell them for $999). There's a $251 difference between a quality weapon and a hobby weapon. Would you rather buy a weapon from the same company that make/made the US military's weapons 50+ years or from a company doing it for half that time for the civilian world?Quote:
I'm quite familiar with MSRP. I also know that Windham rifles sell for $799 and Colts sell for $1,100 on the street, a concept you should be acutely aware of being "in the business".
I'll give you that. I apologize for jumping your stuff about that. I don't like being accused of something not factual.Quote:
I didn't lie, I made a mistake given the nearly verbatim post you made both in content and in structure to a M4C post. That post was made by a guy who has been following me from M4C to other forums and my channel making the same comments. For me to *lie* I would have to tell an untruth intentionally, at least according to the dictionary.
I apologize if the M4C poster isn't you.
