  1. I bought my 1014 just because it DIDN'T have a stupid choke. Sold my choked M4 the very next week. ?
  2. That 2.5 may be worth trying for the field stock RMR. It has a good co-witness now but Im all for gaining more target acquisition. Then again, I dont want to spend $50 just to find out my front sight disappears altogether.?
  3. You're not buying cherry car parts for a 55 Chevy. Like Stranger said, oil the parts and they may look more like what you expect them to. To be fair, the photo of the recoil spring is a bit deceiving compared to what you received. I think scrubbing it with a 3M pad with some soap and oiling it would do wonders. I think what you are seeing are the "right out of the factory" condition that the seller receives them in. Scrubbing it would rid the looser and "fresh" factory coat off of it leaving you with a more subtle finish similar to your stock tube. The scratch may even all but go away. The email responses from the seller are in bad taste given we are provided with the full conversation. Its got to be taxing selling hard use "tool"parts to people and have them complain of minor cosmetic blemishes. Like selling work boots and having the customer complain about a slight scuff on the tread. Then again, Im not very picky.?
  4. I think I had problems with the FFT CH being over inserted. Ive been through a few strange charging handles now ...lol ?
  5. I don't feel sorry for anyone who has a $2000 shot gun....?
  6. You're right! good eye!
  7. Heck, he got 9 in the tube. Im lucky to fit 7 in mine. Maybe I need to cut a few more coils off...?
  8. And here it is most the way finished. A Pachmeyer decelerator will go on the end. I can fit an extra charging handle and repair parts in the new "cubby" ?
  9. I have created a pocket using the plastic I bought. I have also added the new stainless all-thread pieces that will become the new plate anchors.
  10. I have shaved and shaped the A2 butt-plate to fit my field stock. It fits nicely but now I have to create a whole new way of attaching it because the bolt patterns are different....
  11. Ok plastic sheet finally showed up in the mail.... time to get busy.
  12. Yup, most of us here have M4s, but most of us could service the trigger group without circlips donut. I dont use a pistol grip Stranger, field stock for me! I had done the Limbsaver mod but didn't like how "rubbery" or flimsy it was. I have a Pachmeyer decelerator going on this butt stock when all is done. I did a short lop on a moss500 with a decelerator for added length and then for big coats or armor the Pachmeyer pulls off for the needed short lop. Another way of going about a storage spot was to dissect a Magpul grip and work it into the bottom of the stock grip but the A2 plate was hanging around and I hated the Limsaver sooo.? Nice to hear from you SD!
  13. As always, I received my FFT order in record time. I ordered a few extra parts like springs, shell stop and charging handle to keep my "Nelly" operating smoothly into the approaching Armageddon. ?Having a broken spring or shell-stop,... or loosing the charging handle would be a major downer. But wouldn't be spectacular if I had a on-board storage for these extra pieces and parts? ....well I thought so. So here is my attempt at doing so. Updates coming soon!
  14. Wipe the sticky areas down with some isopropyl alcohol. Some of the vulcanizing chemicals can leach out of a brand new handle and cause a sticky feel. It needs to see daylight, so take her out and shoot it.?
