Now that you've soaked it in mineral spirits, you're stuck doing something that will hit every part of the internals of your gun. Anything you miss will definitely rust. My recommendation would be to...

#1 - I agree with Jim on using the 12 or 14, especially if you're shooting factory-level loads and your gun doesn't have a compensator on it. The addition of the comp adds complications that will...

MM, that's a seriously cool poster. So many posters in the 1940s and 1950s were cooler than the films in many situations, especially the B-movie sci-fi flicks.

I'll watch the movie tonight.

Jeez, they milked that thing for five seasons? The first season should have ended it. I couldn't take it after that.

As noted, transfers can happen through the USPS. That doesn't make it a good idea. The USPS is totally inept, just like any other government entity. If I pay $30+ for my gun to be shipped, it damn...

Any NICS date that is longer than three business days is a violation of the federal law that created the NICS. It's software. There's no FBI agent sitting in the back doing anything.

This is from the FBI website and confirms my previous comment that the transfer can take place if the NICS doesn't provide a "fail" after three days. A "fail" can't be the cause of a state-run system...

I don't recall the specifics and don't have time to check right now, but I recall when the NICS was first put in place, there was a concern that this kind of quasi-gun control would occur. The law...

It's only a stock and an SBR if ATF calls it that. Otherwise, it's a pistol with a brace.

Here's a link to the 22Plinkster review. The gun makes more sense with the accessories like the brace and the red dot.

The 1911 Robert Redford had was actually a 1911, not a 1911-A1, which I thought was interesting.
