re: Gun gurus, I need a Gun ID... (this thread is similar to a Snake ID thread) - bapple
Definitely not an FAL since it has a bolt. Maybe a Cheytec Intervention? It was the rifle at the end of the move Shooter. [img]https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-XLI0Tj8Nzx4/Vwoz9egVL2I/AAAAAAAAAz0/UhXTwAcCLcoiP6xjk3KsRDpd0n03QsH8Q/s1600/8583e5ec6fae8e9082d266780bf9db4d.jpg[/img]...

re: Mobile Reloading Bench - bapple
[quote]I did a lot of research and both have their advantages and disadvantages. I think you can't really go wrong with either. [/quote] Good to know both are good. I know a lot of guys are set on the Dillons and the rate may be slightly better but I like that the Hornady is a bit more compact. ...

[quote]Bapple should be along shortly to answer any of your RCBS questions.[/quote] :lol: I actually had never heard of the Green Machine. It's a very interesting looking press. I reload on a single stage RCBS Partner Press right now but I use a lot of other RCBS gear. [quote]Are you saying...

He’s a shooter but he readily admits he doesn’t do a heat test. The temperature is all constant and he did it in the winter. I imagine the majority of guys’ guns will never see this level of corrosion and neglect. But like torture tests, it’s still interesting to see what holds up and what doesn...

re: Ever wonder which are "the best" gun care oils? - bapple
Damn that frog lube is serious. I thought I remember some people getting in trouble with false claims over it but it appears frog lube can back it up. I just recently bought a bottle of Lucas CLP that I got at O’Reilly by the register. I wonder how it would stack up here. I’ve mostly used BreakF...

re: Stationary Reloading Bench Setup - bapple
[quote]After a few on here talked about it I bought a wet tumbler with stainless pins. Does such a better job of cleaning. It takes longer since they have to dry but it is so much cleaner[/quote] I can attest to this. Been using the same wet tumbler with the same stainless media for about 8 year...

[quote] I find it tricky to load .45 ACP jacketed ball on a single stage and get consistent depth / crimp. [/quote] I’ve never had to mess with crimp at all. I just used a factory round to originally set my crimp and went with that. Although I will admit that a deep-seating bullet like the 124gr ...

Mobile Reloading Bench - bapple
The Bapple family will be adding two identical twin members this fall so it’s forced me to clear out a spare bedroom. Obviously it’s a welcome change but my old loading bench (made from a desk from Target) will be retired. So I used the dimensions of the old bench as the ideal surface area for m...

re: Ruger AR-15 Accessories Question - bapple
I would advise changing the trigger to something better. Most factory AR triggers leave a lot to be desired. Any AR15 trigger will fit. For most furniture outside of the previously mentioned stock fitting your buffer tube, nearly all will fit just fine. A new handguard is a different story b...

[quote]Some retard on AR15.com? No, Ruger hammer-forges their own barrels and they are quality rifles overall. Those, S&W M&P rifles, RRA, Springfield...all solid brands. [/quote] +1 Whoever said the Ruger ARs are crap is an idiot. It's one of the best bang-for-buck entry ARs out there. As ...

[quote], but I wouldn’t recommend anyone buy one unless they were planning on ditching the AFM. It’s such a well documented issue and I personally know a ton of people who’ve dealt with it.[/quote] Electronically disabling it seems to fix a lot of the issues since the system isn't really "operati...

re: Ruger AR 5.56 For 575.00 - bapple
Agreed with others - the Ruger AR556 is accurate and reliable but the AR market is saturated right now (buyer's market indeed). I'd stay below $500 on the offer unless it has a really nice optic mounted on it, which I highly doubt....

re: Neurotic Boykin Spaniel - bapple
Constant ear infections and chewing on the feet are common allergies for pure breeds. I have a purebred golden and my dad (a veterinarian) gave him an injection (forget the name of the medicine but can find it) that is supposed to treat his allergies for only a month. He hasn’t chewed on his fee...
