    Most of the problem in the Ruger factory trigger pull is not in the trigger itself, but in the sear/hammer interface. Start by replacing...

  2. AlexanderA replied to the thread Another SIG P320 accident..

    Agreed that there is almost always some user input into these mishaps. But the job of the gun designers is to make the product as "idiot...

  3. AlexanderA replied to the thread Was the M1 Carbine a more advanced weapon than the Garand?.

    Once they got into combat, anything was possible. My late father-in-law, who was a sergeant in the North African Theater, was initially...

  4. AlexanderA replied to the thread what tape for bedding a rifle.

    Since the purpose of "glass" bedding is to fill voids and ensure a tight fit between the action and the stock, it seems that any tape...

  5. AlexanderA liked shooter1niner's post in the thread what tape for bedding a rifle.

    I've bedded the lug and a bit of barrel channel on about 20 rifles and always used Acraglass to bed. The only spot I have ever taped on...

  6. AlexanderA replied to the thread A2 build.

    You have to run the front sight down and/or run the rear sight up, which cuts your further adjustment range. Also the gun looks odd with...

  7. AlexanderA replied to the thread A2 build.

    Yes, that's correct. The "F"-marked ones are for flat top upper receivers, that would presumably take a clamp-on carry handle. The...

  8. AlexanderA replied to the thread A2 build.

    For a true A2 clone, you probably need a straight trigger guard rather than a curved one. Also make sure the front sight tower is not...

  9. AlexanderA replied to the thread Painting guns.

    I want all my guns to be pristine -- but I'm a collector, not a shooter.

  10. AlexanderA replied to the thread How to tell the type of bluing that performed on a gun?.

    The problem with that is that they'd have to polish the receiver again, which would probably efface the already weak markings.

  11. AlexanderA replied to the thread How to tell the type of bluing that performed on a gun?.

    I disagree. Looks to me like a standard hot-tank job. Extensive polishing was done to get rid of the original markings. You can see...

  12. AlexanderA replied to the thread Painting guns.

    Paint on guns is tacky. That includes "official" paint, such as the notorious black on British military guns. I have an M3 Greasegun...

  13. AlexanderA replied to the thread Another SIG P320 accident..

    The Army's decision to demand a manual safety on the M17 / M18 begins to make a lot of sense. It looks like the striker may have...

  14. AlexanderA replied to the thread Another SIG P320 accident..

    The SIG-branded retention holster (made in Israel) has a latch that hooks on to the front of the trigger guard. (The user must press the...

  15. AlexanderA replied to the thread Lee enfield.

    Agreed. Among these, I think the North American-made ones (Savage and Long Branch) are nicer than those from the three British...
