    Right on. I was kind of wondering if having it just hand tight could cause any irregular harmonics in the barrel. I was thinking of using a thin rubber o-ring to help deaden any but maybe loc-tite would be the better way to go.

    Thanks Johnny, but yeah the blast is another reason why I didnt go that way. I've never shot a rifle with a brake but I've heard they are pretty loud. You notice any accuracy difference with and without the brake?

    You are correct, Bisley. I meant to say flash hider, and said in an earlier post up above that I went with a thread protector instead of a comp or muzzlebrake (which points to the fact that thet are two options that are legal and can be used to replace the flash hider), but I had a brain fart. Still, a flash hider is not a feature that I find to be very useful and I don't want to have to explain the differences between a comp, brake and hider to a warden out in the field.

    It doesnt have as much to do with being sensitive as it does with mutual respect, Johnny. I don't like fin grips but I'm not going to just blurt out something like "Hey Johnny, you can't even grip your gun properly AND you made it ugly with that stupid fin grip". But that's just me I guess. As for the SCR, I looked at those and that would have been my very first choice but I heard a lot of bad things about the factory triggers and there are no replacement triggers for them.

    But I do plan on buying some form of fixed mag too. For coyote hunting a fixed mag would be perfectly fine, and I figure that any axtra steps that a guy can take to show a warden or LEO that he's gone above and beyond could save some hassles.

    Different strokes. All AR's are ugly as far as I'm concerned and to me, functionally, a regular removable mag is a more valuable "feature" than the pistol grip, folding stock and muzzlebrake combined. I've never had a jam but if I ever do its comforting to know that I can drop my mag to quickly clear it. I had considered going with a fixed mag and almost went with the AR Compmag because with it you can drop the ammo away from the action to clear a jam but it's as long or longer than a 30 round mag and I like the little shorty 10 rounders when shooting off the bench or over the hood of my truck.

    They sure have. How've you been, John?

    You made your opinion clear the first time Johnny. No need to be a dick about it. I like to be able to grip my rifle like a real gun so fins are out for me. And those fin things aren't going to win you any beauty contests either. Anyways, got my new handguard and gas block put on yesterday.

    I dont like that one. It looks too much like a thumbhole. Could have got that one cheaper (they had a blem sale) but I wanted to make it as blatantly featurelss as possible so I don't have to explain to a game warden why my gun is legal. That is also why I put a regular thread protector on the muzzle instead of a comp or muzzlebrake.

    Installed the Thordsen FRS II on my rifle and I love it. Never could get used to the feel of a pistol grip on a rifle and now it has a more "traditional" feel which I really like. The mil type handguard and front sight look a little odd now though so I ordered an free float handguard and a low profile gas block. Will post pics when I get them installed. https://imgur.com/TUEg50i

    Must Have!

    Yeah, I could see that being an issue for guys with wrist issues. I haven' actually held an AR with a Thordson stock bit by the looks of it it seems like it may help one of the reasons why I've never warmed up to the AR. For me with the pistol grip it never pointed like my muscle memory says a rifle should point. I'm thinking that flattening out that angle to a more traditional profile may actually make the rifle feel better for me. Then I think a thinner piece of furniture out font might help a little bit too.

    Right on. I'm tempted to order the stuff to go featureles because to me being able to have a regular mag release is a more valuable feature than any of the others but I think I'm going to wait until the dust settles until we know for sure what these jackholes settle on.

    Must Have!

    Lol! Which one did you have? After a little thinking it seems to me that these two proucts used together would work pretty well together. Quick loading with one and a way to unload or drop ammo away for clearing a jam.

    Must Have!

    Have you seen this one Bisley? Thought about going this route but all of these different "fixed magazine" ideas still leave you with a gun that is impossible to clear a jam in a hurry so I may still go with one of the funny looking stocks so I can go to a regular mag release button. https://youtu.be/IQutj2wNaPc This one is kind of cool too. Wouldn' be worth a damn in a firefight but it would be fine for a hunting gun. Reminds me of the old "lunch bucket" magazine on the Krag rifle.

    Question for magnum pistol loaders

    Thanks for the heads up, Bob. I don't mind that so much in a cartridge like this. I won't shoot it enough to ever load mass quantities of ammo so I'll throw them lite and trickle them up.
