Ordered me a FR8 rifle. It is a short 308 Spanish Mauser. I’ll talk about that more later when I get it. I’ve wanted one in the past but I heard the (incorrect) rumor that you are not suppose to fire full power 308 in them so I passed up several nice rifles. It will be fun for me since it is a caliber I already stockpile, I could shoot the cheap blue plastic ammo I have in it, and the barrel is already threaded so I can use my silencer on it. I’m hoping it will be as fun as I want it to be.
I previously talked about making a 80% Sig P320 receiver and I wrote a little about. At the time I purchased it I did not know that the manual safety models require a special cut frame, and I wanted to see if it was possible to build out a frame with just a hand drill, Dremel, and files. I broke down and ordered another 80% receiver with the safety cut and I’m make this one a little nicer. I intend to document the work process this time.
These P320s are growing on me. I still think the Glock is better, but it is fun to play with something else at times.
I found out that Danish military bought custom Sig P320 pistols, and that some (maybe contract overrun) slides are being sold at Osage County Guns. So as a side project I am working on building a clone of this Danish P320. The slide is suppose to arrive Monday.
As they say, a fool and his money are soon parted.
