  1. no I understood the sarcasm. hope you didn't misinterpret mine. that gun-nabbing idiot is part of the problem.
  2. NO THANKS on the sticker!!! How about without the sticker? I'm thinking that the person that said it was just flat out ignorant personally, but I want to make sure. I know that taking the grenade launcher off obviously gets rid of one of the imported parts, but for some reason they were saying a muzzle break had to be put on if the GL was taken off. I think some people are confused here. It doesn't matter how many US made parts are on the gun, as long as there are no more than 10 imported parts in the list right? God I hate this. The law is so misinterpreted by so many people that it's hard to figure out who knows what the **** they are talking about. Basically here's what I have: Yugo SKS receiver - imported = 1 barrel - imported = 1 barrel extensions - n/a (cut off barrel at point right where it flares out but not listed in SKS list)either way none now = 0 mounting blocks - n/a = 0 muzzle attachments - cut off - now n/a = 0 bolt - imported = 1 bolt carrier - imported = 1 operating rod - n/a - not on list for SKS = 0 gas piston - replaced with US part = 0 trigger housing - imported = 1 trigger - imported = 1 hammer - imported = 1 sear - imported = 1 disconnector - don't think on the list for SKS but not sure so let's say imported = 1 butt stock - replaced with ATI camo Monte Carlo stock = 0 pistol grip - n/a = 0 hand guard - replaced with US handguard = 0 magazine body - US magazine = 0 follower - US follower = 0 floorplate - US floorplate = 0 + 9 total imported parts even if I count a disconnector that I am not sure about. way on the safe side right? I've looked all over but it seems over and keep getting different answers. I didn't find it anyplace when searching through the past threads by the way so if I missed it I apologize. I also have a couple of 20 round steel magazines that have absolutely no markings/stamps of their origin. Any suggestions on what to do with them? simple posession of them in the same building as the firearm shouldn't be an issue right? I mean if they aren't in the gun they aren't installed right? Planning on grabbing a couple of the tapco ones once people stop freaking out and stocking up on them. can't seem to find a reasonably priced one in stock anywhere, and people on like ebay seem to be paying a premium for them. Tapco ones are only like $20 and US for sure when you can find them again. Ebayers were, at least until recently paying just stupid money for 20 round mags, but now there isn't anything listed on there that is over 10 rounds. Does anybody know if they have changed their rules concerning high-capacity mags? wow... how effective a media campaign can be huh...
  3. I have a Yugo SKS and have replaced enough parts to make it compliant under 922® but I think I read somewhere that if I changed the stock out to a synthetic stock that I needed to remove the night sites, grenade launcher, and grenade launcher site. To achieve that I had the barrel cut off right in front of where it flares out before the barrel extension that the grenade launcher was attached to. Then I think I read somewhere that when the grenade launcher is removed that a muzzlebreak has to be installed, which would mean that I'll have to chop it off again behind where it flares out. Can anybody tell me if I am compliant without having to re-chop the barrel and put on a muzzle break. I kind of like the look of having it cut off right where it is. Remember, I have replaced enough parts to make it compliant. Is not having a muzzle break going to put me back in a bad place? I know the g-men would only mess with me if they wanted to come up with a "add-on" charge, but I am considering opening a pistol range and want to make sure that if they decide to take a look at all my guns that they don't find anything that would f$#% me up.
  4. wow do I feel ignorant. thanks. I assumed that they soke spanish like the rest of south america. I come for education in firearms and get a bonus lesson.
  5. Uplander is the model, and it says made in Brazil. Why would they stamp something into it in Portuguese?
  6. thanks for the prompt reply. do you know the name of any of those Cowboy Action Shooting outfits? I'm not familiar.

    Gas Piston

    Sorry but being a Benelli doesn't make it immune from getting corroded. any time a gas system is the main component making a gun cycle that gas system needs to be cleaned periodically. When someone comes out with a self-cleaning gun we'll be able to complain about paying a lot for it and it not doing it's job. Until then we need to understand how our weapons work and to make sure that at least the most important operating parts are well maintained.

    No more 922r??

    I do have an SKS question... I have a Yugo SKS and have replaced enough parts to make it compliant under 922® but I think I read somewhere that if I changed the stock out to a synthetic stock that I needed to remove the night sites, grenade launcher, and grenade launcher site. To achieve that I had the barrel cut off right in front of where it flares out before the barrel extension that the grenade launcher was attached to.

    how did this go from 922® compliance to stunt flying?
  10. KB fab is right. make sure he send you the shiny deal e bob. he won't need it and you will.
  11. here are a couple pics of the gun's "belly". it's pretty scratched up down there but it says "Gaucha" "Made in Brazil". it's missing the trigger guard which is what I started the thread about. as I said the gun is identical to Stoeger's "Uplander".
  12. i prefer to use i.c. with #4 or even #5 steel for ducks. of course I also believe in calling them in where almost all of my shots are within 30 yards. seem to have enough where I'm not crippling ducks, but I'm not tearing them up either.
  13. IMO it's best to go ahead and get a gun that with the 3 1/2" chamber. There's nothing saying that you HAVE to shoot them just because you can. Late season goose is about the only time I hear much about people shooting the 3 1/2" shells, and that's just from the ones not able to get them called in close. I've got a couple of buddies that have shotguns with the 3 1/2" chambers that due the price of the loads have never shot them at all but do have a box around in case they come into that situation where they just can't get the darn birds to listen.
  14. shouldn't be an issue. if you're going hunting make sure you're using a heavy load and that your gun is clean. if it doesn't cycle properly with hunting loads then you have a problem. if it does, and you said you don't use it as a trap gun anyway, then just don't shoot the light loads. maybe after a few hundred rounds take it back to the trap range and see if it will shoot those light loads. if not, and it proves reliable hunting then who cares. or get a hand-thrower and a box of clay pigeons and a friend that will throw them and go practice that way since most ranges wont let you shoot heavy loads on them. basically, you bought the gun for hunting. hunt with it.
  15. sure looks like it should do the job
  16. sounds like it just doesn't like hevi-shot, or it still needs to break in. with those heavy loads though and for that price that just shouldn't happen. That being said I have a pistol that is a little finicky about the ammo I use. With the price of hevi-shot and the load that they carry there's no way it shouldn't allow your gun to fully eject the shells. break it down, clean the **** out of it, and shoot about 50 3 1/2" shells through it. After that if you're still having problems with hevi-shot don't use it. maybe the gun just has something against it.
  17. I haven't had the time to get out the past couple of years as I'm a few hours from anyplace to hunt ducks/geese. Looking at those pics has got me swearing to myself that 2013 is gonna be filled with duck hunts. I'm jealous!!! Nice job guys.
  18. I know it's hard to believe, but good ol' Nebraska has great duck and goose hunting at times. There are some very good marshes out by Grand Island, NE. One of the most popular being Harvard marsh. Both of your other ideas sound good too though. Have a great time wherever you go.
  19. By the way I hope that nobody minds me posting this in the Benelli forum, but in my experience Benelli owners are more knowledgeable than most about shotguns and it also looks like the Benelli section also has the most people viewing it. Let me know if this bothers anybody. I'll be happy to delete the thread if it really bothers someone...
  20. I've got an older Uplander side-by-side that says "Gaucha and Brazil" stamped on it. I got it super-cheap at a garage sale and need to figure out where I can get a trigger guard for it. I've seen the same exact gun on Stoeger's website right down to the "Uplander" name. Does anybody know if Stoeger bought some company in Brazil called Gaucha, and more importantly does anybody know where I could look for a trigger guard for this old shotgun. Like I said I got it real cheap but there is no trigger guard and I don't feel that it's safe to use without one. By the way I am new to this forum and want to say "hi" to everybody and look forward to some good discussions. I've read some good threads on here already.
