Well, most everything from Harbor Freight sucks, but these are especially bad. I was trying to loosen a PRI hand guard nut (which holds the hand guard on the upper, not the barrel nut) and the strap broke on the smaller of the two pack HF strap wrenches.

I found this picture online when I was looking for a chart, I don’t know how up to date it is. Now I’m not a big fan of the Boresnake as I think people use it in lieu of a proper cleaning, but I do think the Boresnake is a very useful tool well worth … Read morePSA: Boresnakes are color coded.
So I have been playing around with these QD end plates for the AR15. They are a replacement receiver end plate that had a QD socket built right into it. It makes for a very convenient sling mount location. I was researching a different potential problem with these, when one of my rifles dropped off … Read moreDamage Inc LLC QD End Plate sucks

Recently they have come up with a upgrade on the old X300 with the 300U-A and B. The A uses the old system and the B has the new T-slot with bolt … Read moreSurefire X300U-B
Rock Island Auction has been putting out teasers for an upcoming auction. This one being worthy of sharing I thought. Everyone recognizes the iconic Thompson SMG ( no relation to me ) but what’s that BAR with the weird looking stock? That is the ultra rare Colt Monitor Machine Rifle.
