Firearms Related / Re: Ruger 22/45 lite slide release has to be manually operated
« Last post by rugerguru on September 21, 2017, 01:48:56 PM »
That is normal operation for 22/45 models.  There is no spring there to provide pressure to push the bolt stop downward and, on top of that, there is a ball detent on the bolt stop button.  Doing the slingshot mod will make it so that the bolt stop will fall back down by gravity when you pull the bolt back instead of locking in the up position.

Let's MAGA and build a 60 foot statue of Eugene Stoner and John Moses Browning!  The statue just got 10' higher... make it 70 feet tall!


A 30ft-high statue of Mikhail Kalashnikov, the inventor of the world's most widespread assault rifle, has been unveiled in Moscow. The bronze monument shows Kalashnikov, who towards the end of his life was kept awake at night over the millions who were killed because of his invention, cradling an AK-47.

The ceremony before the statue was unveiled featured the Soviet anthem, Orthodox prayers and speeches about how the firearm ensured Russia's safety and peace in the world. The 35-million-rouble (£450,000) statue was financed by the Russian Military-Historical Society, a patriotic group set up by the Kremlin, and erected on Sadovaya Karetnaya Street.

An estimated 100 million AK-47 assault rifles are now spread worldwide. By some estimates, the AK-47 and its versions account for around one-fifth of the world's firearms, and it has become the weapon of choice for terrorists and drug gangs.

I do not do any sort of specialized care routine for either of the two carbon fiber barrels that I own.  Both are for rimfire and not centerfire though.  My experience is similar to yours with regard to to accuracy and weight in that both are very good.  Who made your barrel?

Firearms Related / Ruger 22/45 lite slide release has to be manually operated
« Last post by masfonos on September 20, 2017, 12:23:26 PM »
I got a 22/45 lite recently and the slide release seems like it's acting odd.  Instead of being like most pistols where, when you insert a loaded mag and pull the slide, the bolt closes, the bolt only closes when I either just push the release down or pull the bolt back AND push the bolt stop down.

Is there supposed to be spring pressure that "defaults" the bolt stop to the down position so that you can close the bolt by just "slingshotting" it, or is this just how the 22/45 works?

Other than that, it's a fun little pistol.

I can't wait for this!  Frank Castle is one of my favorite fictional characters, certainly among comic universes.

If the part really is a conversion that works on a real Glock pistol, then I'd guess that the part itself is the machine gun like a R/DIAS for an AR.  100% illegal to buy or possess, with or without owning a Glock, with or without intent to install it in a Glock, and probably with or without a SOT unless you have a post sample LE letter.  It's completely different from silencer build kits because you can legally build a silencer if you have an approved Form 1, so there is a legal use for them.  You can't build a machinegun legally.

There is an instagram account that is always advertising Glock auto sear conversion switches.  I think they're 80% "paperweights" though that require very minor finishing to complete them, but he's straight up advertising them as "full auto for $125, just email me" - which I fully assume is a fed trap.  http://www.instagram.com/suppressorgunse/ 

The bit about Jeff Bezos being some kind of puppet master with a grand war on 2A RKBA in cahoots with BATFE sounds ridiculous, though.  But nothing surprises me anymore either. 
Firearms Related / SHARE Act is going to the floor for a vote! CONTACT YOUR REPS!

The Sportsmen's Heritage And Recreational Enhancement Act (SHARE Act), where the Hearing Protection Act provisions (making it so that silencers aren't regulated by NFA) ended up has passed out of committee and yesterday they added it to the calendar to take it to the floor for a vote.


9/18/2017 "Placed on the Union Calendar, Calendar No. 224. Action By: House of Representatives"

The text of the bill is at https://www.congress.gov/bill/115th-congress/house-bill/3668/text

This is a pretty big deal.  There might be a decent chance of the House passing it, so keep contacting your representatives to support the bill.  The Senate probably doesn't have as good of a chance, so please contact your senators and Senate leadership.  Tell them you want this thing passed and tell them that you will work hard to make sure that they don't get reelected if they don't pass it.

"Shall not be infringed" has meant "lets infringe the hell out of it" for a long time and this is a big opportunity to reclaim some of our rights that are supposed to be protected by the government.

I saw a article about that on a different "news" site but haven't seen anything about it on any "real" news sites not that they would cover it.  If it's actually a full auto conversion I wouldn't put it past Amazon to work with the feds but I think its probably something less shady.  Either a part that just works with airsoft guns or a stupid seller.

I don't know if just having it is illegal if it's a parts kit or if you don't have a Glock.  They sell suppressor build kits that you just drill holes in and it's ok.  I definitely wouldn't buy one!!  If it really is illegal I hope that nobody bought one thinking it was OK since it was on Amazon and gets in trouble.
General Talk / Is Amazon working with BATFE? Illegal full auto glock conversion

According to this article, Amazon has been working with BATFE to  sell illegal full auto parts kits t customers, to get them arrested for possessing machine guns. The article includes many screen shots of the item.

If it's just a parts kit, can they get you for "intent to build"?  What if you really have an airside pistol that you wanted to upgrade? Some of the comments following the article said the part has been removed (I was unable to locate it) and there was a debate there on whether or not this is actually illegal. What are your thoughts? Does this make you shop at Amazon less?
