Cool Gun Tricks

FALARAK at AR15.com shows us how to make our own low profile front sight base out of an existing front sight base. Pretty cool. It’d be cooler if he showed us how to cut a Weaver rail into it.

Also, up next are step by step instructions on how to legally turn your Saiga into a pistol grip, regular AK magazine accepting, folding stock configuration. Definitely worth the read. In fact, I see SayUncle’s next project in the future.

Yeah, this WECSOG* stuff may bore some of you, but I dig it.

Gun law rant: It seems to matter to the .gov whether or not the parts that comprise a weapon that looks like an AK47 are imported or not (USC Sec 18 922 ( r ) and 925 (d). You can see more here. I didn’t know this. Apparently, in order to assemble an AK clone from a Saiga, only 10 parts can be imported. So, you have to buy a Saiga then replace some of the internals with American parts. At that point, you can fix it to accept pistol grips, stocks, and regular capacity magazines. So, what you have is a completely arbitrary and reasonably stupid law that serves no purpose other than making us buy American.

    Hmmm, nothing really wrong with that, is there?? Of course, if your one of those countries that might make those imported parts, this would be a pretty substantial barrier to market entry, dontchyathink???? Wonder what the WTO would think about it . . . .

    Saiga’s are darned interesting, aren’t they? Guy likes his smoothbores. I tried them again at the last show, and the sights were pretty decent, much better than on a surplus AR.

    I do wish they worked with normal capacity AK mags, but that’s something that can be fixed, I guess. I’m not so much into the WECSOG.

    Ah, actually they now make high cap mags for them now but they’re pricey ($30 each). It looks to me to be pretty easy to fix it to take AK mags (which you can get for $5 each) by using a drill, tap and some pipe. See page 8 of that guide.

    I’m definitely going to get one it’s just a matter of do i want the 7.62X39 to take AKs or do I want to get the 308 and buy the expensive mags. AK mags = cheap but 308 is 308!

    I need to send one of these to SayUncle….

After several weeks of taking Viagra, I got used to it and took the drug only on the weekends. Noticing the changes, my girlfriend started to ask me why I'm so active on weekends. I had to honestly confess everything. She was not upset but supported me. So thanks to Viagra, I made sure that I'm loved just like the way I am.
