In 1963 a radical left wing Democrat socialist shot and killed John F.

In 1975 a left wing radical Democrat fired shots at Gerald Ford, President of the United States.
In 1983 a registered Democrat shot and wounded Ronald Reagan, President of the United States.
In 1984 James Hubert, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and

As recently as Sept 2013, an angry Democrat named Aaron Alexis shot 12 at the Washington Navy Shipyard in Washington, D.C.

Not one NRA member, Tea Party member, or Republican conservative was involved in any of these shootings and murders.

Clearly, there is a problem with Democrats and guns.

SOLUTION :
IT SHOULD BE ILLEGAL FOR DEMOCRATS TO OWN GUNS.

A buyers market, AKA LaRue triggers cheap.

It is absolutely amazing how the firearm market has become super saturated and how much prices have dropped. Great deals are available all over the price.

For example, Larue is running a sale on his match trigger for $125 shipped. The deal can be found here.

I went ahead and bought one. This is a really nice deal if you are looking for a nice trigger.

Update: Looks like the deals over already.

Colt XM16 Found In Cambodia Still In Service

We all hear or read the second hand stories of AKs turning up all over the world still in use. But often the stories of  M16s from long ago are not talked about as much.  That does not mean it does not happen.  Recently some one shared on facebook a picture of a XM16 Colt still being used in Cambodia.

Left there during the war, it still serving its owner all these years later. A  bit rougher than it left the US, but still working. And with some customizations!  Apparently even in Cambodia  the urge to customize the AR15  is hard to resist.

Surefire 60 Round Magazine Full Auto Test

Since the surefire 60 round mags have came out a few years ago I have been doing some long term testing of them.  They seem to have a shady reputation for reliability in some corners while others deem them fine.  I have written about them a few times already.  I tested them for reliability and durability, as well as talking about how the changed the handling of a carbine and perceived weight. Last year I  wrote about how I left two of the 60s fully loaded  for a a hair under 2 years, then fired them with no problems.

I continued that test and  had another surefire 60 round mag fully loaded for a hair over 3 years. I had planned on firing it and writing about it, when a friend brought over a full auto lower.   It was a great chance to test the mag since full auto is more strain on everything.

I slapped my Colt H3 buffer in the lower and my Colt 6940 upper on the dealer sample lower and fired the surefire mag in burst.

As can be seen in the video. I worked perfect.  I followed that up with a few more times  of using it in longer bursts  with no problems.  The Surefire magazines may be hit and miss and have a certain rep online. But I have had no problems with my three and long term testing and efforts to get one to fail without completely abusing it, have shown them to be reliable.    I will continue long term testing with updates since the mag is still  is in doubt as a useful piece of gear. I have to say that I still have confidence in the ones I have been testing and would use them without worry.

Samson flip to side Aimpoint 3X magnifier mount

Samsun FTS Aimpoint

I pickup an Aimpoint 3X mangifer in a Samson Flip To Side mount to play around with.

Samsum FTS Aimpoint

The Samson FTS mount has a cross bolt so you screw it onto your rail. A lever is on the left side to flip the magnifier over.

I had to swap out the Matech rear sight I was using with a KAC 300m rear sight. The Samson mount did not have enough height to clear the Matech sight.

The spring in the mount quickly pushes the magnifier out of the way. It also hold the magnifier off on the side pretty well. If you violently shake the rifle, the magnifier will move, but it stays out of the way pretty well.

After playing with this mount a bit, I don’t like it. It appears to be well made, but it isn’t right for me. Flip to side mounts like the LaRue can be used by either hand while this one has its lever on the left side. I also don’t like how it screws to the gun, I would prefer to be able to take the magnifier off quickly. For me, this mount isn’t right, but I would recommend it to someone who wants a dedicated FTS mount.
