  1. Gotta say that using your charcoal grill for a background is a pretty great idea I want to steal!
  2. 2020 Atlas Hyperion with custom grey PVD on Cheely and polished/matte chrome slide. Small magwell and large trigger. Surprised the chrome didn't scratch. Nicest gun yet, came from a very soft Atlas but this feels much nimbler yet shoots soft and as they say, "returns to zero".
  3. Looking for a smaller and simple range bag without all the gadgetry and gimmicks, preferably made in the USA. Basically carrying one full size pistol, muffs, tools, first aid, glasses, 100 rounds. Prefer something that doesn't shout tactical or FUDD. Any suggestions? Might just get a camera bag instead.
  4. Next time I’m at the grocery store I’m going to be spending way too long a time reading the labels of feminine hygiene products. Nice business opportunity for someone to repackage tampons and douche as “21st-Century Weapon Cleaning Products”!
  5. I bought some Germaniums myself! Got the Wiha 1/4 driver and Wera 3/8 wrench with fairly wide ranges since I am not requiring super tight tolerances. If anyone wants my old Fix-it Sticks and my cheap clicker wrench gimme a holla. I truly doubt I undertightened my barrel nuts or crushed any scope tubes but I do want to be able to hit some values those tools couldn’t cover.
  6. Did anyone get a 20MOA mount versus flat? I'm probably more concerned with close than far but I don't think I see a downside to getting the 20MOA. Wow I've never seen a 3" Cantilever but I'm looking next!
  7. BTW I got one (backordered) for $1869 from B&H Photo by calling for "Special Savings" and using their branded credit card to save sales tax and shipping. Pretty easy. Being Winter I can wait a month or so.... Haven't seen them discounted anywhere else. Of course NY State sales tax is a bummer but they snag you with their card and saving 8%-plus is a heck of a lot better than getting "points back". Tony I should have got the C-More but you know... marketing. But also I figure it's my last AR scope ever. Who knows if there even will be 3Gun especially in NY again?
  8. Curious how one would measure an existing mounted bolt's torque value? I imagine you'd start your torque wrench super high and by trial and error keep reducing it 5-10% until it breaks free for a reasonable estimate but is there a tool made for doing this? A digital readout perhaps? Also, while I've been getting by with Harbor Freight and Fix-It-Sticks, what is a good general gunsmithing Torque Wrench (imagining buying a large and small one unless there is something amazing out there) that is consistent, easy to read, good for barrels and scope mounting? Thanks!
  9. On the tipping point to get a Vortex 1-10 but stymied by mounting choices. Going on a conventional 3G 16" AR. I've been using the lightweight Aeros on previous guns and they've been great but I wonder if I'm pushing the limits of stability and strength with them? Most of what I see it advertised with are $300+ Spur and RRS mounts for PRS type guns, these seem too heavy and don't have the cantilever that I think I'll need for proper positioning. Also whether a 1" or 2" cantilever? What are the esteemed professional internet experts using? Photos appreciated. Thanks
  10. There has to be a way to monetize such incredible bad luck!
  11. No suppressors here in NY but I've had the Rubber City adjustable gas key and 2A adjustable BCG run without issues. But last few rifles have used Superlative Arms gas blocks because I like how you can access the adjustment from the front of the handguard and it feels like a well made product. With the Rubber City key you're taking apart a nicely staked gas key that shouldn't be a problem but it seems like a way to introduce a trouble spot. And the 2A BCG is expensive and again, you want to pray that adjustment holds.
  12. Don't we ingest enough micro-plastics as it is? Not like the government is looking out for you here, unless people keel over immediately there's no concern what happens to our kids who eat off plastic with plastic utensils slicing and grinding food cooked and stored in plastic. I simply notice today's kids have more asthma, allergies, autism, etc.
  13. Whenever I think the Enos forum is too polite and strictly moderated I only need to spend five minutes on Snipers Hide to be reminded of how petty grown men can be. And if you want proof of the Napoleon complex and elderly incels.... Good deals on optics though, a lot of them are insane and flip their gear every month.
  14. Nice little business selling Ti nuts to replace the Aero ones then. I really like the Aero Atlas though but I went back to the full length rail R-series for a little extra strength. Once on a bipod I twisted it hard enough to bend the Aluminum, I bet anything lighter would be even weaker.
