Re: Liberals Should Not Take Chinese-Virus Vaccine

Just outside the district line is NIH plus a endless number of bio-tech company's on Rt 270 ending with FT Detrick. Little doubt that the president has the resources to develop anything he wishes.

Re: combo machines 3 in 1 lathes and mills

I would never recommend any combo machine to anyone without experience.The limitations of these machines are great and knowledge is needed to get around them.While I have seen some remarkable items made on some of these, the time spent is often huge. Small milling tables alone would be a major cause...

Re: Building more than 1 full auto

You can build as many FA items as you wish under license the model is irrelevant. You must register each item under BATFE per rules. You can also transfer one DD per year ......you really must read all the regs and privileges you have.

Re: Hi Standard

Re: Hi Standard

Nice rendition of a WW2 artifact. My questions are all about the suppressor. How long was the original barrel and the details of the porting. What are the dimensions of the original suppressor tube and how was it packed.

The High Standard shows us how far we have come in pistol design.

Re: R8 my 3D printed Form1 design

Wipes cause much inaccuracy plus you will need a FFL to replace them. I can't agree with this part. My 4.5" AR15/22, can hit 3.5" swingers @100yds, from a wiped can. Also, the end user can legally replace wipes. ATF has never reversed this decision. Thank you as I thought wipes were under ATF regul...

Re: .22 rimfire, integral vs add-a-can

If you're going to do a 10/22, just do a really good muzzle can, that you could swap between hosts. The action of the 10/22 doesn't let you get to hollywood quiet. If you wanted to do a bolt gun, go integral, all day long. This. Integrals are pretty much a waste on semi auto .22 rifles. Don't get i...

Effective 9mm subsonic ammo is a high pressure adventure, +P+ pressures can be seen. All steel pistols with strong lockups are recommend. I like the CZ-75 for its strength accuracy and reliability.
