If it was only for the one, I would ask our own E.Blake if he would be willing to carve another.

Not reproducable, but a work of art in walnut.

Dear Zen,

I would spent the money on ammo and run it through your rifle. Knowing what you can do with it is more important than accessorizing.

It is an ak derivative, it alreadly looks tacticool without any additional stuff.

The bolt for the .30-06 has even larger lugs as well.

No, I have not seen anything sell for the prices asked on gunbroker.

The shows I was at earlier this year had prices that high but nothing was moving. The weekend before last things were moving but at prices comparable to those of a year ago.

I have always had my Stevens .22. I think my grandfather gave it to me on my birthday. The first one. The other grandfather gave me his very pre-64 win model twelve after High School. First pistol I bought was an AMT .45 hardball 1911. It was stainless, but a casting. Not that I under stood this at ...

The psl from Romania also has a .308 cousin as well. It looks like an ak design and I can't think of any other possibilities. Mike you might want to reconsider the galil possibility. I have compared the two in the past. They were different enough to remark upon, but, my recollection is vague. I purc...

I am not sure but, I think the vepr uses the bottom of the bolt as a third lug. So, is it a Saiga?

Mike, A spot welder is the easy way to weld sheet as thin as the mag wall. But a good welder can do this with either mig or tig equiptment. The lugs could also be attached by high temp silver. This would be permanent and could take the stress of use. But, you would have to carefully check each resul...

Mike, It is easy to make a lug for the face and back of the magazine. If you have a inexpensive spot welder, they are easy to afix. But, even though the measurements are as consistant as I am able, each resulting mag tends to have a preferrence for which rifle it will work in. So, no production run....

Mike, This is a simular mixed pleasure as veiwing your cut receiver. I would feel good about the prices I actually paid. However, knowing that they are not in production anymore and thus will never be available like they had been overwelms this with a less pleasant sensation. Just like the receiver,...

The rear of the valmet hunter receivers vary. The ones with the single bolt in the back center of the top cover, will have the back top of the receiver milled to the depth which would have been the cut to hold the top cover. Or, they can be like yours which uses three screws, one in the front, two i...

aussie, The ORF receivers are no longer being produced. But, care seemed to be exercized when it was cut from a billet. The hardening appears to have been outsourced. I have a home made knife makers oven. I can not control the atmosphere. So I would probably burn the rails if I tried to reharden it....

$400 dollars is not too much for a peice of metal, but, it is WAY to much for a peice of sheet metal, no mater what you have done to it.

Now that the ban is over, I have modified m-14 mags for my rifles. I have three valmets. One .243 and two .308s. The mags altered for the .243 do not work in the .308, but the ones made for the .308 work in the .243. I believe it is a matter of what is the individual rifles preferrence. But, I do no...
