Off Season Lets Talk Guns

Been a while since we had a guns n' ammo discussion.


Some of you are AR shooters Im sure. Im looking at a Colt 6920. Will be my first AR. Picked up a Glock this fall and really enjoy shooting it. Any feedback on that weapon?



Anyone else been in a buy/sell/trade mood with hardware?

Really don't need to clean the extractor unless you have a ton of carbon buildup on the bolt that you can't simply scrape of with the pin or a fingernail.

My opinion of importance:


1. (Tie) Trigger/Barrel

2. Scope/Sights






3. Buttstock
4. Handgrip





5. Everything else


If you have basic tools, build the lower from scratch. You will learn a lot, and it isn't very hard.

I was thinking more about the inside of the bolt and carrier.


If it isn't sliding smoothly, feeding problems can occur, and they are frustrating as hell.

cool; sounds like my order of importance is about on par with what you have listed.
also, I shoot left handed (left hand on the grip); would I need to put in a left handed upper; or could I just shoot in the regular config? Wasn't sure if I would be getting blassted in the face (NTTAWWT) with expended rounds in the regular config lol

Stag makes left handed rifles, but I have no experience shooting a normal rifle with my left hand so I couldn't tell you the negatives.

I pulled the trigger on that brand at Cabelas for 600 rounds, but my deal wasn't as sweet as yours. I think 600 rounds were $219 with free shipping, but it's on back order. I may keep looking for more deals and try to pick up another 600 rounds of something.

Mostly damaging the barrel and degrading accuracy, there's quite a few theories out there from reputable sources. Messing up the crown is possible which will affect accuracy. Now with a chrome line barrel this is somewhat mitigated, but each pull of a brush through there is the equivalent of a bunch of rounds.

Also to anyone concerned with first shot accuracy, make sure after cleaning you fire off a round, the first round fired with a clean barrel will have a slightly different POI than the rest.

Thanks for the reply.


The only thing I worry about is the rod making contact with the barrel. The brush is softer, so it's impossible for it to damage the barrel.

When I get to rounds 3000-5000 on my .308's we will have a good reference. One barrel is chrome lined and the other is Stainless National Match.

This seems like a decent deal. Not great, but better than anything else I've seen recently.

Yeah I have 600 on back order and have picked up another 400 at local sporting goods stores. 1000 rounds should be enough to raise a little hell with, at least with this gun. I have a lot of other ammo for my other guns as well, likely enough to start a donnybrook with a small country.

I found some Magazines last night at Impact Guns. A little pricey, but oh well.

ordered two of the Arsenal AK47 Magazine 7.62x39 30 Rd Bulgarian Mfg

Last night their website said they still had them in stock when I placed the order.... today EVERY big AK Magazine is clearly marked OUT OF STOCK.

keeping my fingers crossed that I got my order in before they sold out.

Just went to my favorite local gun store. Their "assault weapon" section was damn near cleaned out. All the AKs were gone, and only 2 or 3 AR-15s. They usually have about 20 or 30 combined AKs and ARs in stock. They still had plenty of shotguns and semi-auto pistols for the time being.

So I don't own a handgun yet, but I'm seriously considering buying a stock of high capacity magazines to have for when I get one. Does anyone have suggestions on this? I was thinking of getting some Glock 17 round mags because, from what I've read, they will work in numerous Glock models. Thoughts?

Too bad you didn't post this a couple of months ago - I had two Glock 9mm mags that worked with the 26 I got rid of, but I gave them to one of my friends.
