It was Advanced Armament Corporation that stepped up, hence the name 300 AAC Blackout. AAC was purchased by Remington and became part of the Freedom Group.

I've been shooting 300BLK (7.62x35) a lot this last year. 7.62x39 (AK-47, etc. round) ballistics but with better energy out to 300 yards or so and works very well in a standard AR-15 platform. Same mags, BCG, etc...all I did was change a barrel.

Also works exceptionally well suppressed. Hollywood quiet with subsonic ammo.

Had some cycling issues at first with my barrel's carbine-length gas system, but once I opened up the gas port it now runs like a champ. Next build will have pistol-length gas...and a 7 & 1/2" barrel!

Dag nabbit. Submitted two form 4's today. Dealer isn't set up on Eforms yet, had to do it the old fashioned way. Eforms = 3 months. Paper = 9 months.

Damn... Gonna have to check into the eforms for my latest SBR build.

I'm 6 months into what was originally a 9-month wait, then was told to expect a year and now estimated 15 friggin' months for 3 suppressors (3 separate forms).

The Belgian Auto 5 sold a couple hours before I made it to the store. My wife is happy.

I look at the 300 cartridges as to the answer to the question of AR shooters that don't want to shoot a 22 any more. Same deal with the 308 or any other flavor, I want to shoot a "mans" cartridge but want to keep my AR.

And before everyone gets their panties in a twist yes I know the AR originally was for a "mans" cartridge with the AR10.

Stevens Firearms...now 3 in the family!

Well...like the 3 motorcycles in the garage...seems Stevens Firearms are becoming popular at our home.

Years ago I got my son a Stevens Favorite .22 rifle as his "first rifle". Light, simple, single shot drop action little jewel:



Then time came for a "first shotgun"...so I scored a Stevens single shot 20ga model 94, a break open single shot with an exposed hammer (sorry, no photo)...

Now, since this Sunday we are going pheasant hunting...and his 15th birthday right around the corner...I know he would like a double like dad's Browning O/U 12 ga...so I scored:



A very nice, tight and good looking Stevens M311a dated 1952 in 20ga. These are often available in a variety of conditions...and this is a good one IMO. As a simple double barrel is hard to beat and I really liked the automatic safety feature (if you open the action the tang safety moves to ON).

Bonus Points...mom likes it also...she say's she's tired of the 12ga!!!

I grew up shooting my grandfather's Stevens M311A in 16ga. I killed many a deer with that gun in LA (Lower Alabama for you Yankees.)

He passed away unexpectedly a week before I graduated basic training, in May of 2003. He had set that gun aside to give me, but I was moving around a bunch back then, so it resided with my parents until this year. I had all but forgotten about it when my dad pulled it out to send home with me. I'll have to pull it out and get some photos. The M311A defines simplistic functionality.

When I was 12, I spent 6 weeks picking raspberries to earn enough to buy my first gun, a 20ga Stevens 311 just like that. Probably the same vintage as well.

Very nice DD. Looks like the Sig Sauer Scorpion which I came close to getting. I got this instead.

My 11 YO son and I met another family (Dad w/ 2 boys - 11 & 15) this past weekend and had a little fun plinkin'. We brought my P226, Moss 12 and Ruger .22 w/ x25 mag & Nikon scope. They brought their .22 rifle and revolver and REM AR. It was a fun day.

Unfortunately, that damn X25 mag kept loading improperly and jamming on the .22 rifle. I emptied it and cleaned multiple times and oiled the loading mechanism and no change. I then noticed the ammo was a bit dirty. Sure enough, it was the dirty crap ammo I bought in bulk that was causing the jamming. As soon as I switched ammo, no problems. Get what you pay I guess.

On a side note, my 11 yo is becoming a damn fine shot. Groups well, understands how to walk and adjusts appropriately. I think he'll enjoy this for a long time.

Ran across a Sig P232 today at my LGS. I loved the feel and design. MrsDonkeys is a little unhappy with her Nano and liked that the P232 was easier to hold, yet lighter. However, she was a bit non-committal about me buying it for her. Anyone have any experience with this gun?

Good luck finding a computer that will work with the eform site.

I have three for work and one at home it only would work on 1.

The one that worked was running windows 7 and ie9
