    I thought he did most of his work with a model 70. I did read the book on him....there is another book (I think) called 13 cent killers....pertty good book on snipers of that same time.

    It's an ultimak, there is another type out there, but I have been very pleased with this one, it's very easy to swap out, I only wish I could have found an adjustable powered scope

    I have three sets of rifle dies and two pistol dies. I just wasn't sure if the small base was needed.
    Too much lube is almost as bad as not enough. :lol3

    Sorry for all the questions but I figured that you all seem to know some stuff...

    What do y'all think about a Stag Model 2? How much are they worth, and how good quality are they? The LGS has one on the way, (as well as a Bushmaster Carbon, which I handled a month ago and didnt like the feel of) so I'm thinking about plunking down a deposit, but not sure of the price or if they're good guns.

    Advice, thoughts, opinions? I hope this is the right use of this thread too, by the way...

    I haven't shot the Stag, but hear good things about them.
    The barrel is the key as far as accuracy goes. In the last 10 year rush there were some pretty crappy barrel makers cranking out 24-7 :huh
    Luckily if the barrel is not up to your standards they are easily replaced.

    Thats a Troy TRX extreme rail, 15" on a Stag model 2 with Magpul everything, & a cabelas 3-12X 40 caliber specific scope. I have that rail system for another build and just had to test it out.

    Normally not a fan of mixing black and OD, but yours is a really good mix. Thanks for sharing!

    Ok, the Stag was gone, but I called as I was on my way toward Cabela's, and now I have . . . a DPMS .308 with a Burris AR-332 sight. :clap

    There was absolutely NO .308 or 7.62 ammo though, so at the moment I just have a big expensive club. :rofl

    Any suggestions on good slings? Also, pics coming soon, of all my black toys.

    I'm thinking about buying a .22LR AR/M whatever for Fe Girl.

    Who has experience with them and what should I look for?

    For plinking or do you want something more accurate?

    You have stuff like the Umarex HK and Colt replicas as well as the Smith & Wesson MP15-22. Out of those the MP15-22 is probably the better of the bunch. These aren't really AR's but look like them. Very little is interchangeable with a real AR.

    You can buy a real AR in 22LR as well. http://www.cmmginc.com/category_s/1516.htm I believe these use forged AR lower receivers and the AR trigger group. You could then swap out the extension and get a 5.56 upper.

    Another option is to buy a complete AR lower receiver and then a dedicated 22LR upper.

    The last option would be to get a 5.56 AR and then get a 22LR drop-in conversion kit. This would probably be the most expensive route and the least accurate (when shooting 22LR). If you're using it for training then this would be the preferred route though.

    I was thinking of it as more of a toy!

    Real AR component pricing is so far from from reality right now it is out of the question. I'm going to stand back and wait until some of these panic purchasers need to pay their bills and buy at distressed pricing.
