Re: CMP 1911 pistol sales, preliminary info

I've only used their parts for one build, but found them to be superior to Wilson and far more economical. Doesn't hurt they've installed the sights, staked the plunger tube and installed the ejector either. That save a bit of time and $$$ on tooling.

Re: A different 308 thread

I'd start researching Aero M5E1, Sig 716, and Mega. Aero is certainly the more budget conscious of those, but I love everything by them that I have. Their cosmetic options are really limited, but I feel the product is solid. Much more so than PSA and for not terribly more money. They also make 6.5C ...

DSA Voyagers are priced into the PTR 91 range right now. I have a Saiga .308 I picked up when they were a new thing. It's fun enough, but the installed sights only go to 300, so an optic for some long range fun is necessary and right now they probably fall into the same price range as the other two...

Their story is completely unraveling. Battering attacks by 30' Tiger Sharks, only wanting to use the EPIRB for "life threatening" situations, not making landfall two times because their hull was too deep to make the harbor, storms that didn't exist, and a lot of other bull. In addition to ...
