Unfortunately there are a lot of gun companies who don't sell OEM replacement parts to consumers, possibly due to liability concerns. I couldn't even get Taurus to sell me a stinkin' $2.50 extractor...

It's okay for the anti-gun groups to take out loans because they're the Good Guys in the eyes of the news media. By contrast the NRA is evil and giving them loans is tantamount to bailing out the...

Ouch. Unfortunately good gunsmiths are fast going the way of the dodo. Too many of them these days know how to slap together an AR but have no idea how to shape metal. Many of the ones who work out...

Russian 7.62x39 ammo is designed to be used in AKs or SKS's which are known for having heavy firing pin strikes. ARs and especially Ruger Mini-30s can be iffy.

It has been reblued and a short M1911A1 trigger added. Also the rear sight notch was cut into a deep V-shape (originally it was a shallow "U").
