  1. To unload directly from the magazine usually my experience is that it is easiest with a two finger technique. First the carrier has to be free to move.....that happens when the Red dot on the cartridge stop is visible. Then because of the force of the magazine spring driving the cartridge into the cartridge stop, you need to push the cartridge in the magazine back into the magazine ~ 1/8" while simultaneously depressing the the cartridge stop area immediately behind the bolt release, this moves the stop laterally out of the path of the cartridge rim; finally release the cartridge fro
  2. Years ago I mounted that same SureFire model on a 7" Remington 870.....too much bulk for the lumens. Switched over to a lighter more powerful Scout model.
  3. The bolt handle has a simple recess that is captured by a spring-loaded ball detent integral to the bolt. Lateral pull will be sufficient to liberated the bolt handle from the bolt. The bolt handle can then be utilized to displace the receiver trigger group retaining pin for field disassembly.
  4. The offset light mount attached to the picatinny rail was not as ergonomically clever as I hoped, so a simple application of electric cable wraps being employed for installation worked great for this particular light. This should be considered for the OP's project for it's simplicity. I used a simple backing plate tapped and threaded for desired fastener or again use T-nut, for the mount. The Streamlight is $40! and can be cross decked to pistols etc.
  5. I recently converted a 14" Mossberg Shockwave to a BATFE registered AOW (any other weapon) with a lot of modifications to have a little varmint gun. There was no mounting options available for the OEM forearm with a curved surface to install a light, so I milled a flat and used 2 part epoxy & screws to mount a picatinny rail at 6 o'clock position. The four holes seen were mounting points for the OEM "strap"; these were filled with same JB Weld black epoxy and can barely be seen in finished photos.
  6. A few years ago I mounted a variety of picatinny rail mounts to the OEM two piece polymer rails. The simplest and secure manner I found was to use thru T-nuts, the hole has to be drilled precisely to fit the shaft of the T-nut to prevent any wobble, which could be corrected with 2-part epoxy if you need to. The Magpul switch mount could be installed likewise.
  7. I have always like the M4 Entry. The c-stocks are nice on an SBS. Hello, SD, it's been awhile !
  8. Carry on. Just experimenting with photo uploads on the new site format.....much improved.
  9. It is quite simple. IF you are purchasing the firearm from a reputable FFL in the locale of your domicile AND you personally don't have any legal liabilities from owning such firearm, no problem. IF you source the firearm from a non-FFL then you are responsible for knowing all applicable the Federal BATFE laws as well as the State / Local ordinances that apply to firearm sales, the most restrictive of the collective laws controlling its ownership legality in your locale. All the laws are now readily available for review at the click of a mouse.
  10. Hammer cocked and locked on insertion of the trigger group?
  11. Maybe the detent / spring are just full of crud and they and the channel that retain them may just need a good cleaning to allow the detent to have free full travel to engage the handle. Collectively, all the parts involved are a few bucks total. IF one desires a different handle, buy the parts and swap them out and see what happens. Carry on.
  12. My Plan A would be to gently open up / deepen the handle component and see if it helps. One can remove the bolt and insert the handle and observe exactly what the situation is. In my view the detent-handle engagement of the axle component of the handle is a non-load bearing surface that simply retains the pin in its lateral position thru the bolt; the actual axle of the handle bears all the load with retraction of the bolt, however its only with hand pulling rearward force, not a repetitive high speed violent impact on the axle part. So I don't think the surface hardening is particularly
  13. And finally, you might take a small round needle file and deepen the notch where the detent engages it.
