Not all in the last 2 days, but I finally finished up the Remington 700 Project I've been slowly piecing together over the last couple years.

Previously posted:
------------------------
Remington 700 SPS in .308
Criterion Barrel 22" 1:10
Had barrel threaded for Muzzle device
Silencerco ASR Muzzlebrake/Suppressor mount.
Choate Stock
Pacific tool and Gauge Bottom Metal for detachable magazines
AICS / Magpul Mags
Timney Calvin Elite trigger
Sig Sauer TANGO 6 4-24x50 Scope
Pelican 1750 Rifle Case

Finished up over the holidays:
-----------------------------------------------
Sent out the Stainless Barrel, barrel nut, and recoil lug for Nitriding.
Seekins Precision 30 MOA scope mount
A scope ring lapping kit
34 MM Seekins Precision rings
Vortex Defender Flip Caps for eyepiece and objective

Purchased a plank of closed cell 2# PE foam for the Pelican case. ( Why do Pelican and other manufacturers put Open cell foam in rifle cases ? )
Built a Hotwire table to cut the foam.
Cut the foam for the rifle and accessories. with space for Rifle, Bolt, Magazines, ammo, Kestrel, Range Finder, and Suppressor. )
Very happy with the final outcome.

Now I'm trying to decide what to do with all the leftover parts. just short a receiver at this point to put the SPS back together.

Picked up a new one today at Stonewall. Very impressed with this carbine. Hope it shoots as good as it feels.

Picked up a Bond Arms 45LC/.410 with 3 inch barrel today at the gun show at the Bowling Green fairgrounds. No particular reason. Just cause. :lol:

How is that show? I know it's a broad question, just wondering about size, FFL vendor numbers vs. private sale tables, is there food and a place to sit down with it? And whatever else you care to add.
Quit worrying, hide your gun well, shut up, and CARRY that handgun!

Not a large show. It was in a room that was really too large for the show so tables were widely spaced which was nice. Saw the whole show and made a couple purchases and was out in about two hours. I think this was the first time for this show at this location and In all fairness I don't think it was very widely advertised although I did meet some people from Port Clinton and from Lima. I'm local to it and I learned about it from the fairgrounds marque. I don't know about ffl's vs. private parties. AR parts and accessories seemed to be the majority of offerings. There was a kitchen right off the sales floor with some activity going on there but I didn't see anything served. It was about 11:30 when I left. There was some seating but limited.

Bought a Gen 5 Glock 19 yesterday. Low miles used, with the Ameriglo Pro night sights. Point Blank did a 10% off deal on their used and clearance guns over the weekend. Sometimes* that translates to a pretty decent deal.

*Pay attention, because sometimes they raise the "every day" price during these sales before applying the discount, especially with new guns.

Just got my M&P 2.0 compact slide back today after having it milled for the Trijicon RMR. Now to get it sighted in.

Not a firearm, but firearm related: I've ordered AS Val magazine pouches for my plate carrier. Of course, I don't have a Val, but it's the closest thing to AR-15 or PTR-91 mag pouches you can get from Russian manufacturers. And since I want to run a PTR-91 with a rig in Russian camouflage (Their "Flora" pattern works like a charm in green wooded areas), I don't have much of a choice...

Replaced the Ruger extractor in my 10/22 with one from Volquartsen. It’s a completely different gun now. Much more fun to shoot when it’s not constantly jamming and mis feeding. :mrgreen:

MORE AMMO ! :twisted:

Function testing 22lr in the Taurus TX-22 I purchased.

After 750 rounds of various manufacturers:

    100 rds of CCI Mini Mags worked as I expected them to do.
    250 rds of Blazer, also no problems.
    300 rds of Federal blue box in bulk had 3 or 4 stove pipes during the 250 rds shot.
    100 rds of CCI Copper 22 ran wonderfully. (And at the price for them I'd hope so.)

Next up some Aquila 40gr Super Extra.

I might eventually try some Remington 22lr ammo,however the last time I used any was several years ago during "the drought". I had a failure rate of 20 % in a box of their bulk ammunition. Soured me on the brand.

Picked up this PSA AK-V9. I've got an MRO that'll fit right on top.
