Re: Armscor M5 not ejecting high brass hulls

It's the same RIO buckshot that worked just fine when I started shooting. It's even the same batch no.

Armscor M5 not ejecting high brass hulls

When I first got this thing, I started off shooting RIO buckshot (white hull, roll crimp, high brass). Then I switched to Estate 7 1/2 because it was on sale locally for extra cheap. Recently I put on a KAK extended mag tube on, and went to see how much more of the RIO I could fit in, since the roll...

What is the future of 7.62x25 Tok?

I've been looking a long time at a PPs-43C, and I've also been watching the prices of Tokarev ammo. $17~$25 for 50rnds isn't appetising for what I'd wanted to be a plinker. Is there any reason to think demand will pick up, and production levels will mean cheaper boxes of the stuff?

Re: 7.62x39: Advantage of bolt-action over semiauto?

To be fair, the 7.62x39 American Ranch does accept Mini-30 magazines.

Re: 7.62x39: Advantage of bolt-action over semiauto?

This isn't the Mini-14 Ranch Rifle, I've already got one of those. It's one of these. https://ruger.com/products/americanRifl ... 16976.html

Unless you mean the bolt action is an update of a semi-auto?

Re: 7.62x39: Advantage of bolt-action over semiauto?

And you really get that much more of a gain from an AK round? It's not something that works better with a larger bullet like 30-06 or .308?

7.62x39: Advantage of bolt-action over semiauto?

I'm looking at a Ruger American Ranch in 7.62x39. Couldn't tell you why, don't think you could talk me out of it. However, if you still feel the need to talk me down from this ledge, then maybe you can help me whittle down my expectations. See, I've never really fully understood the advantage of a b...

Re: WANTED: Wood furniture for Armscor M5

The JC Higgins stock I got is just a hair too wide in places, and I haven't found a bolt long enough to hold it in place. Can't find anyone local to do the woodworking, so I'm stuck for the time being.

Re: How do I get this unusual stockbolt off?

Actually, Numrich has three stockbolts listed. There's this one for the speedfeed stock, which I already have https://www.gunpartscorp.com/products/1489620B There's this one for the synthetic stock without speedfeed, which has a longer threaded area and I would assume works with the wood one too. ht...

Re: How do I get this unusual stockbolt off?

The stock I got was shipped raw, unsanded and unstained, with no additional hardware. Is the bolt and washers something I can pick up from Lowe's?

Re: How do I get this unusual stockbolt off?

It was hard to tell with that lighting, but yeah it's a socket. 13mm or 1/2 is what I'm told will work. Now all I need is someone to bum a socket set off of.

Re: How do I get this unusual stockbolt off?

It's the bolt fastening a stock to a shotgun. In an Armscor/RIA M5. The manual's exploded view shows it as a hexbolt, but it looks round. And the manual also provides no information as to what size socket I'll need to get it out. And I can't get any useful answers out of Armscor, other than "We don'...

How do I get this unusual stockbolt off?

At least, unusual to me. Normally the face of these things are slotted, but this looks like a roundbolt with some kind of threaded plastic washer? I have no idea how to get this thing out without taking apart three other things on the gun.
