    Best answer: I am a bit old school, so AR to me is like M-16. No tools required for field stripping or assembly.
    Anything beyond that requires a particular complete set of tools, one, no less important than another.
    A total dismantle and the tool you don't have and need becomes the most important.
    A detailed guide to complete disassembly and reassembly you will find priceless.

    >>>Like every 'tool box' you can add with tools that aid convenience and a lot to choose from.
    Nothing to dread with the 'right' tools for the job. Biggest fail I see is not following the right sequence in a sub assembly. All gas operated guns have certain complexity and when all else fails, follow the directions.
    You may not notice a boo boo until a test fire and the gun wont cycle, back to formula you go.

  • Will a magnesium AR receiver catch on fire from rapid firing?

    Will a magnesium AR receiver catch on fire from rapid firing?

    Best answer: What you have is a magnesium alloy, perfectly suitable for making many gun parts. Yes magnesium does burn but it's hard to ignite under normal conditions and big solid chunks like an AR receiver don't like to burn. You'd have to scrape off a pile of metal shavings and apply heat to that to start a fire.... show more

    You'd have to scrape off a pile of metal shavings and apply heat to that to start a fire. It needs a LOT of surface area get it going. Once it does light it burns with a very hot and bright flame, and you can't extinguish it the way you do with ordinary fires. The metal reacts with water and a few other things you wouldn't expect.

    There are countless YouTube videos to show you how this works but I recommend you pick up a magnesium fire starter and play with it. There's nothing like first hand experience.

    Best answer: The hunting seasons are based a lot on breeding cycle. By restricting hunting a the number of live births can be increased without a major decrease in population. The allowing of taking of doe's in some places is used to decrease the population when there is an excess.
    It is not that they can all be killed off in one season as much as they can be lost by repeated over harvesting. In some states during the depression the deer population was lost by repeated over hunting and it was not the result of one hunt.
    Also keep in mind the entire ecosystem. The loss of a animal to the habitat is greater then most of us realize.

    2. Since it was "modernized' with a new barrel in the late 50s I don't think it still qualifies as a Curios & Relics, however I'm not positive about that because the barrel is over 50 years old. Maybe someone can give you a better answer on that.

    I'm a proud owner of a slingbow! (Slingshot converted to shoot ball ammo and full length arrows). I saw one on YouTube and thought it was neat. I then spent years getting my very own custom made one.
    It currently has around 30lbs of pull thanks to speargun tubing and I have a set of 55lbs bands for arrows only.

    It's great for fishing and small to small/medium sized game.

    People have taken bear and deer with them but I'm not sure about all that...a young doe 20yds or closer on the other hand had better watch out!

  • Can a 9mm really shoot open a locked door and I'm talking about the bolt lock and would it be more dangerous then its worth to shoot open ?

    Best answer: Given enough shots to do so....an emphatic yes.

    Best answer: Given enough shots to do so....an emphatic yes. Several years ago I got interested in art forms with wood that included cypress knees in the water, huge grape vines that grow high in trees, and occasional hornet`s nest that seem to have a peculiar interest. To get the grape vine was near impossible with a ladder, bucket truck, or just climbing. So, with my 4 wheeler Yamaha Timberwolf, S&W 9mm 659 and a box of 9mm I sought a vine that had potential of a very interesting art form. Yes, I shot it down lying on my back on the 4 wheeler looking straight up at the vine I proceeded to clip in down. I live in a remote wooded area so no collateral danger to worry about except myself and I wore a polycarbonate face shield. Point being that if I could shoot a vine down I could trim a bolt assembly right out of a wooden door. Now, the number of shots nor the other collateral risks are not relevant to what you are asking....so again, yes.
    NOTE: The danger is always present but it`s up to the individual to judge risk vs. accomplishment for himself.
    UPDATE: It is possible(IMHO) to hit that sweet spot and the bolt goes flying and the door is no longer captured, however, that sweet spot is virtually unknown to most individuals. I would think a series of shots in the known weak area would be the more likely. The risk of getting hit with a fragment is there and there`s no way to give odds on something like that. If you were killed in the act of doing something like that the news would report it as a freak accident.

    Best answer: NO ONE IS ALLOWED DOWN RANGE WHILE LIVE FIRE IS OCCURING!

    Explain to the range officer that this is your first time shooting there, ask him to explain their procedure. I can tell you how I did it when I was a Range Officer at a large outdoor rifle range.

    The range officer will call for a cease fire, all shooting must cease.

    The range officer will call for unload and show clear and safe. This means any ammo still in the firearms must be removed, action must be locked open or otherwise must be indicated empty by a chamber flag or other apparatus.

    All firearms are to be left on the bench muzzle facing downrange and untouched for the entire cold range. The range officer will walk the firing line and inspect each station to ensure every firearm is empty, clear and safe.

    The range is now cold. You may now go forward of the firing line to change targets or hang targets, repair holders and police any brass that may have ejected forward of your position.

    Once everyone has returned the range officer will walk the firing line again to ensure there is no one forward of the firing line.

    The range officer will call for safety glasses and hearing protection to be donned and then make the range hot, meaning everyone is now allowed to load and fire their firearms.

    Normal routine is every 15 to 30 minutes a cold range will be called, it depends on how many shooters there are and how many new shooters are waiting to hang their targets.
