I just ran a bunch of mags thru my post ban config barrel tonight and the flash was freaking horrendous. Took two seconds between shots to have my eyes acquire the target again.

That said... Are there any REPUTABLE smiths in the northern lake county area that can thread my barrel for a FH? I am in the Grayslake/Gurnee area.

Thanks

Scott over at DJ is good w/ AR's. Last time his lathe was broke so he wasn't doing any FS type work. Don't know current situation. He did a trigger job for my 1911. I sent my upper over to ADCO and for my situation it was cheaper and faster. Super fast turn around. He's hit or miss with email so you might have to try a few times.

I'll second Adco. Less than a week turnaround. Here's my post ban 14.5 Bushy upper that they removed the ak brake and put on a Phantom suppressor for me couldn't be happier.

Glad you had a good time. I know I did. The phantom flash hider is the way to go it eliminates most of the flash. Thats the one I have on the camo AR I brought with. Let me know when you want to go again, this time bring a flashlight, a tunnel run is in call. If either of you want in to the club I can sponsor you in at any of the board meetings. Just let me know.

As for tunnel runs....how big is this tunnel again? Will my fat ass need a can of crisco and a shoe horn to get thru?

Alright where you guys shooting at?
Link Posted: 8/17/2005 7:09:39 AM EDT
Cosmic,

You could make it thru the tunnel run...everyone has to do it at least once, you need a flashlight and ....well....thats about it. they are 3 1/2 or 4' Its a blast, Rogue and I did it twice, pretty good time, the small one is a bitch though. but still fun, you would have to crouch down a little more and definatly have some gloves. I'm bringing the rapelling harness and a 150' assualt line for the next one, there is a LONGER one we found on the other side of the 600yd. I think it deadends at the lake.
I believe we are going back this Thurs, or / and Fri night. doing some photos with a couple girls and shooting some F/A stuff with them afterwards. I am also going this Sat arounf 12:30pm. I have a firearms training session with a client. Should be fun.

Drobs
You have to know the secret squirrel handshake to get in........We are shooting in Wisc. at a private range. I have the keys and we can shoot 24/7, let me know if you would ever want join us.

Sure, you get all these Cheeseheads(meant in the most lovingly way) in here, then you dissappear.

Good luck in the new job, I commend anyone that can work with children/teens. You hold so much of the future in your hands, and get so little in return.

Plus you have to put up with the teens, I remember how I was, and couldn't imagine having to deal with that everyday.
