  1. Been a while since we have had a FL Tube discussion.... thought that I would join in and say that I'm still around. Been making FL tubes for about 12 years now. High quality 4130 chrome moly aircraft grade steel. The inside on my tubes have a mirror like finish, no galling or follower sticking here. I know that the TI tubes are the hot item, but grit, alum followers and TI don't play nice together. The weight question comes up now and then, my tube weighs 8.8 oz, a TI tube about 5.75 oz, by the time you load 7 - 00's you hardly know the difference. Still here and making a few... 100% happy customers [email protected] Joe B
  2. Depending on who wins the election it could be ZERO rounds Joe
  3. If you can't find the blank (5 round) extension, I make a pretty neat extension that allows for 6 rounds in the tube. We call this a "New Jersey" special as the guys in that state are only allowed 6 rounds. Search this forum for "New Jersey special" and the pix will come up. And although I've only been lurking , I'm still around and have a few 7 round FL tubes available. Questions at [email protected] Joe
  4. Here we are again... this topic comes up again and again. This is what I posted about a year ago... "Well now that this topic has been resurrected, I have to chime in... over the years there has been much discussion here of the pro and con of various after market FL tubes. Do a search... issues of relative weight, finish, color, galling, cost, delivery time and even "veteran status". The consumer has many choices and several good products. Just a reminder... I'm still making FL tubes, 100% satisfied customers after 7 years and always immediate delivery. Info at [email protected]" About the only negative things that I have heard about the Ti tube is the long /uncertain delivery time and the possibility of galling with the aluminum follower. If you want the best chrome molly steel tube, I'm still here and have a couple of tubes ready to ship. As always... themalt @hotmail.com for more info. Joe
  5. I have sold many "socomguy" steel 7 rd tubes over the years, when I get asked about the spring my advice is to first try the original spring. If you have satisfactory feed and function, especially on the last round, you are good to go... and loading that 7th is a lot easier besides, otherwise go with a longer spring, but be prepared to cut it down until you get the full 7 without having to beat the last one in. Oh' and I still have a couple of tubes ready for immediate shipment... info/questions at [email protected]
  6. When ever this topic comes up I feel the need to chime in, just so you know that I'm still here... for the best quality steel tube... "SOCOMguy". I have a couple of tubes ready to ship. Search here on the forum for discussion and references. More info and contact at [email protected] Joe
  7. Like was said , this topic comes up once and a while... here is the dope. Steel (my steel FL tube) 8.8 oz , with a full 7 rds = 23.8 oz. TI tube about 5.7 oz , with a full 7 rds = 20.7 oz. If you want a quality steel one , I have a couple ready to ship [email protected] Joe
  8. My apologies if you took it that way... I've been a member here for years and have engaged in many "discussions" on the topic of FL tubes, If you go back and search you will not find one derogatory comment by me about any of the other FL tube suppliers... especially KIP's , he is the premo supplier of TI tubes. Nothing wrong with giving the OP guy some info and options. Regards , no hard feelings Joe B
  9. If you want a high quality steel FL tube, you can have it in the mail tomorrow morning. I'm still around and have a few of tubes ready. For more info.... [email protected]
  10. I use Diamondkote , matte black on my FL mag tubes, it is a very good match to the black on the M4, both in color and sheen. Diamondkote is a darn tough finish too. I use M and R Arms Specialties here in Michigan ( mrarms.com) for all of my coating work. Joe
  11. For some, "don't mind after market" might not be the issue... for 922r considerations my tubes are marked "USA" I would guess that Kips are as well. Joe
  12. I have been lurking of late but since I got mentioned in this thread I'll jump in. I'm still around and currently have four FL tubes ready to ship... same high quality and same price $145. Been doing this for over seven years now and never had a dissatisfied customer. More info and questions ... [email protected] Joe

  14. Because of previous discussions about weight, I figured... A TI tube with 7 rds of 00 weighs about 20.8 oz, one of my 4130 steel tubes fully loaded is 23.8 oz. If you don't want to wait, I have one tube left...pay and it will be in the mail tomorrow. After that one. I'll be working on another batch. Info at [email protected] ... or search this forum.
  15. Just a reminder, there is another source, the originator of the FL tube. I have been making these for over 7 years , 100% satisified customers. $145 and no waiting. Search this forum for many testimonials. Contact and more info at [email protected] SOCOMguy
