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.

gun I ordered one of these today....

Anyone else run 'em on your AR's? I'll install it on my A-2 AR-15. If I like it, I'll order two more for the two flat top AR's I have.

MagPul has been making something similar for quite a while.

This one looks like it makes the bolt release for an AR function like the one on the FAL.

I'm not familiar with the one MagPul makes, nor am I familiar with FAL's.....other than they shoot 7.62 NATO ammo.

Other than the original "Hey, we received your order" email, then took my $$$ first thing Monday morning (based on what I saw on my online bank statement), I haven't heard shit from them, other than "Your shipping order is being processed".....10 days ago.

I sent them an email this evening (it was stern, but polite).......

"You received my order, you got my money. It's been 10 days! Where's my order? Either refund my money, or deliver my order!"

I sure as f*** won't order anything from this company again!

I'll give them until next Wednesday to deliver. If they don't, what's my recourse to get my $$$ back?

I have a Phase 5 lever on two of my lowers and Teal Blue Bravo PDQ lever on one. The PDQ requires dremeling the bolt catch channel across the lower and part of the rib behind the channel on most models and is totally worth it.

$50 for Phase 5 levers last I checked. $65 for TBB’s PDQ lever and the asshole is lame on gun rights. Bought the product before I knew. PDQ is the only way to fly on the particular lower it is on. Buying truly enhancing product off total asshole? Reference every post by regarding letting liberal skanks service your shank.

ETA: Phase 5 lever is a steel lever that replaces the bolt catch and is a one piece ‘solution’ to the problem. They come in AR-15 and AR-10 sizes and are HQ in California last I checked. Don’t remember where the Blue ball asshole is.

This is the mag release I went with. It was very reasonably priced compared to $90 from Norgon.

Don’t buy their latchless charging handle. Great idea, looks good, works for charging, stays in place under recoil, lets gas spray directly into your eye.

Mag catch good and comes in all those colors, gets in the way of actuating bolt catch to lock open with left hand (closing bolt old school is fine) but paired with PDQ lever moot point.

Here’s one shaped like Norgon’s but 1/3 the price.

A good buddy of mine is rolling his own. I can't wait to see how his turned out. His father was such a good gunsmith it would scare Carbine Williams, and the son is just as good.

I've never had a jam on an AR. Only time I have ever had a fail to feed was when I was using a steel British military magazine.

I obtained a bunch of 30 round USGI mags that were left out in the woods after multiple Robin Sage exercises. No jams with those. I had a 20 rounder that had been dropped on it's feed lips and it never would feed 100%.
The only time I ever had to use the forward assist was with my second .458 SOCOM

I had failures to feed with three odd shaped plum colored 30 round mags. Threw them away in pieces so if schmucko dumpster dove it would be a job to re-assemble. Had one failure to feed with a Promag, got rid of them too (Silver Bear ammo).

Had failures to fire with Silver Bear only brand that ever happened.
