Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

Default New 7.62x54r Franken Rifle I've been playing with

Just slammed this Franken rifle together useing various bits from M72, M76, M77 and PSL parts. The rifle has a custom heavy 18" barrel made from a Green Mountain blank... and M72 style cooling fins machined into it near the gas block.

I've run two mags through it and it belches fire like a bastard! Now just have to throw it in the blast cabinet and put a proper finish on her.

Yup, just have to turn the barrel to the proper OD for each individual barrel part so you get a .001-.002 interference fit and then drill & pin.

This project took a hell of a lot longer than originally planned because I marred the chamber face of the barrel when pressing parts and had to send it to a guy who profiles barrels (I will have a lathe & a mill soon so I will be able to do it myself). It took a while to get back and then I found that the modified M76 bolt didn't like the 7.62x54r round even after all the modifications I made...so I said fuck it and ordered a PSL bolt (designed for 7.62x54r) and had to redo the headspace...which normally isn't a big deal... but my barrel came back with about a .000000000000000000000001 interference fit and headspace changed constantly while drilling the barrel pin. To make a long story short, after much cussing, I was able to get it headspaced and it runs like a demon.

Looks like a fun gun to shoot. I much prefer the boomers over the poppers.

Wish I would have gotten one in 8mm when they were easier to come by.

That is cool back when I still had guns I used to take an AK and see what the hell fit on it and still went bang. You can come up with all kinds of interchangeable parts for a Franken.
Since the flood and listening to my bro 44044 I got rid of every damn thing. Guns are bad they hurt people

Very mean looking...in a nice way!

What color scheme are you going to use, AWT?

Please don't say triple pink. Though it might blend right in at the NYC gay parade!
