    Excellent message there for sure. Go Kyle!

    Kalashnikov and Armscor semi-auto shotguns with extended mags are looking good.

    Anyone with experience of these?

    • ghostsniper June 7, 2022, 5:38 PM

      I’m gonna pull the trigger on this one this week.

      Been looking for a year, now it’s time to act.
      I’ve already fired one.

        After a cooling-off period, and a month of too much wind (and cold), this morning I finally got to Battlesight Zero my (https://youtu.be/vST2ANyRHjM). It turns out that I am not too blind to acquire the front sight, and that honey shoots like the business. I was just satisfied with my 1-MOA group at 25 yds., but wanted to verify it and had a 4″ steel gong hung at 50 yds. I took aim at that (held near the top) and the orange gong disappeared from view; fully attrited. I went downrange and found it with a hit near the middle and 9 yards down range from the target stand.

        This is called being happy. Then, my son wanted to shoot dad’s main battle rifle, also off the bench. He hit the 50 yd gong. This is called being righteously happy.

        If any 4″ gongs get anywhere near my area of control, it’s curtains for them. I have an aversion especially to the Viet Gong, but that’s another story.

        Shotgun? If I had one (I have 3) it’d be the same Marine Mossberg500 .12 gauge I’ve had for several years. It’s not fancy. I found that a pump action is reliable when adjusting fire sideways in the prone (turkey hunting). I imagine the semi auto is great for a frontal assault, but a trench gun is also a reliable tool. However: have fun! That Panzer Arms scatter gun looks awesome.

          Looked at that vid.
          I have, in the past 4 years, built 3 long guns (1 center fire, 1 rim fire, 1 12ga pump) from scratch. Not kits. Parts. All hand picked by me. I didn’t get the parts selection right many times and had to buy them again. A lot of the parts had to be hand customized by me. To fit and work exactly right. It took time. The first gun took about 4 months. The 2nd one, about 2 months. The last one took almost a year and I have enough parts left over to build another one. I know how every single part works, and why, have extensive lists I made for all of them for replacement purposes. Yes, I have numerous replacements already.

          I am not a smith, just a fixer of many things and a creator of other things. So it was with incredible satisfaction when my first gun build was fired the very first time with hard sights on an 8″ gong at 100yds and it hit slap dead center. Nothing breeds enthusiasm like success.

            I admire how you’re able to build a weapon from scratch. I can barely assemble the cleaning tools and hang the targets.

            Working on a new cleaning and maintenance bench, though. Might need to reload at the station, too. Don’t wanna, but there’s a lot of shithappening that I don’t want, either.

        Looks REAL nice!

    Quisling minions of the WEF SPECTRE are in for a rude shock and it couldn’t happen to a nicer bunch of globalist maggots.
    Silver spoons born on third base playing save the world LARP with more for us and less for you has grown stale and tiresome.

    One a few M-14s. Zero m1a rifles,,,,,,, mine are M14 E models with the selectors removed. And two SOCOM’s, one standards built to ART21 specs! My least accurate semi auto sniper grade rifle. I still love these things.

    A big ol battle rifle, wood and metal. Glorious!

    • KCK June 9, 2022, 5:22 AM

      I can’t decipher it, Dirk. You one an M1A or you one two SOCOMs?

      I didn’t want the short barreled M1A SOCOM but finally came to my senses. At 63, I’m not really going to be an infantry rifleman much longer.

      • Dirk June 9, 2022, 8:46 PM

        2 M14 E models and two SOCOMS. One of the E models I turned into an ART21 sniper system. Used a Krueger Barrel, used a stone on the trigger to smooth it up. Some other 14 tricks, a Vortex scope.

        It’s my least accurate 308. 1.1/4 at 100y isn’t even ok! It’s fun, I have always enjoyed the battle rifles. I grew board. Pretty certain if I spent a day fiddling with it, the rifle would shoot better.

        • KCK June 9, 2022, 10:16 PM

          I’ve kinda wondered about Vortex Scopes. have you more than one? My good deer rifle uses a Burris scope, which is middling good but I’m very satisfied with it. I had an after market BDC on it for a year or two but I wore them out. Kilt me some aminals at 550yrds, tho.

    Get some!
