  1. Not bad at all! Is that your first time doing it yourself? I have done many things to my firearms but this still scares me. I wouldn’t go any more forward yet, you can always remove more later. Maybe polish it up and give it a go first Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    New White Oak 3-Gun Barrels

    Thanks I was able to find an Odin 16” intermediate locally, so I think I will test it and then maybe sell my lightweight 16” middy to make up some of the cost if I’m happy with the reliability. The lighter barrel does get pretty hot quickly, so I think this will be a bit better for me if it works out Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Hey have you figured this out? I can’t find any info online about it Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Yes, Walther has been doing the program for a long time now, but I bet they haven’t paid much at all. I recall checking over the various competition rosters last year and seeing maybe about 5% of competitive shooters, if that, were shooting Walther. Here’s the thing about Walther that shooters who transition over may soon discover: their aftermarket support has always been abysmal. For most of their guns you have one or two options for sights. Mags are expensive. Parts are not easy to come by, and there aren’t many shops that work on them. Obviously they are pushing harder now with this product, trying to reach out to competitive shooters. This could work “if” they get it together with the community and vendors for aftermarket support ( ala Glock and CZ). Will there be an ecosystem by which competitive shooters can get parts, customize guns, etc? That’s the big “if” here Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    choosing 1-6 scope help

    I wonder about the Primary Arms 1-6 FFP with 5.56 Raptor ACSS. Anyone have that one? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    New White Oak 3-Gun Barrels

    Thanks man. I didn’t realize this one has been out for so long. I remember the fluted one but not this one. So do you think I’ll gain with this over the Odin 16” mid w AGB I have already? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Help with Odin Works O2 Handguard

    It is! I think it’s a lot stronger than it looks. I beat it on the bench a few times just to see if it would hold up. Should be fine for tossin in a barrel Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Help with Odin Works O2 Handguard

    Ok I was able to get it clocked correctly after a few more tries. I guess it wasn’t as bad as the Aero mount (ditched that for a LaRue), and it’s definitely LIGHT and looks good, so it was worth it Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    SLR Sentry Gas Block

    I also should add that you’re supposed to keep the port 100% closed when shooting .22 ammo with the SLR Sentry AGB Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Has anyone heard anything about these? Was thinking about trying the 1.9 to replace my 16” middy from Odin. I like the specs - 18” intermediate gas, 1-8 twist, 1.9 lbs for under $300. Price seems low, any corners cut? Any reviews out there? https://www.whiteoakarmament.com/shop/barrels/varmint-target-informal-competition/3-gun-mk-223-5-56-18-1-8-twist-w-gas-tube.html Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. If I’m a betting man...and I am... I would wager that we see a flood of used CZ and Tanfo DA/SA CO and production guns hit the used market this year and the prices will drop. Just a note for purchase planning purposes Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Help with Odin Works O2 Handguard

    Thanks guys I’m going to try one more time this weekend. I had tried to estimate the overclocking and account for it with no luck the first few times. I want it to be exactly true for obvious reasons Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    choosing 1-6 scope help

    I plan to transition from practice to actual 3-gun events this year and I currently have the Lucid L7 1-6 which was by the cheapest out of all of these. Do you guys have any opinions on this one? I have only noticed some slight fisheye effect that sometimes a nuisance and seems like smaller eyebox than others when zoomed in. Should I be looking at the Steiner 4x right now to start out with or stick with this? I’m a little apprehensive about beating this scope up too much and losing my investment completely.

  14. If anyone has experience with this I’d really appreciate advice. I tried aligning this handguard several times during installation, but every time i got it torqued it would slide over just a little, and be visibly misaligned with my upper. I like the hand guard, but I can’t live with a canted rail like this. Now I’ve loosened and tightened it a half dozen times and also wondering if I need to add more thread sealant, and what should I use if so? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    SLR Sentry Gas Block

    Just a tip with the SLR gas block, you are supposed to close it 100% before cleaning the barrel, then reopen it each time. You can put a drop of oil on the screw. That’s about all I’ve done, and mine has been flawless for almost 2 years now. I’m not trying to say that would have prevented whatever happened, just that going forward it will be good to follow that procedure Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
