Picking up my Mega lower receiver tonight and want to put it together asap and get shooting. Anyone know a gunshop that carries punches? Closer to Bellevue the better.

Have you tried Wades? I have no idea if they carry any tooling but they are in Bellevue. If not then I am sure they would know who does.

Have fun!

Sears.

Stop at a couple pawn shops on your way to Sears. They often have little tool sets, but don't pay what they are asking. Offer less. They often mark things up to brand new prices, at least those commercial outfits do.

Thanks for the help. Tried Wades, they said my best bet would be to order them from brownells. I'll go check out Sears tommorow, are they any special brand or kind of punches I should look for?

cheaper than dirt has them on sale right now, nice sets, but you would have to wait....I think you will have the best luck at a local Hobby shop, like Hobby Town or something along that line. if you cant find the punches, you can always goto the model raliroad section and buy the brass rods and make your own.

Dont waste your time at Lowes if you want a complete set, they only have a few sizes (# IIRC) but the do have ONE that will work for your AR.....

If you want to buy a good set of AR tools, check out www.adcofirearms.com.

Steve (BigBore) is an ARFCOM Industry Partner. These are the best tools I've seen for gun work, and the cheapest.

Here's a link to his 'Tools' thread:
www.ar15.com/forums/topic.html?b=7&f=25&t=170654&w=searchPop

You can probably get by with Sears/Craftsman crap, but it's always easier to have the right tool for the job.

Yeah, I saw that too 1GR. Consider the source tho.

  • He's from OH, in the WA forum.

  • Pimping "someone else's" tools.

  • The link he provided showed one of the tools being used backwards.



Smells like vendor to me.

See the 4th post, 2nd page, from TheRicker at here, "AR Specific Tools new item 9-8"

That's ok, I'll keep the "crap" that I've been building guns with since '94. It's not the tool, it's the operator.

Boy you WA guys must have your tin-foil hats on today.



  • He's from OH, in the WA forum.



  • Ever hear of the 'Active Topics" button?



  • Pimping "someone else's" tools.



  • That's exactly what they are. I bought them, I like them, I tried to spread the word. Why would I need to lie about that?



  • The link he provided showed one of the tools being used backwards.



  • I didn't take or post the pic, so ...

    Maybe you used the bathroom and forgot to wash your hands.

    Yeah, I placed an order from ADCO and picked it up at the show. When I walked up to ADCO's table, TheRicker was there buying some goodies. I was wearing my ARFCOM polo shirt and TheRicker saw it and asked my screen name. BFD!

    There are conspiracy theories abound in the great northwest apparently. You guys been seeing lots of black helicopters lately?

    If you guys are happy with your Sears stuff, fine. Maybe it's because you haven't ever used truly high quality tools. Just like my neighbor who can't figure out why I buy Snap-On tools, yet he always comes over when he needs to borrow a tool because his 'Sears/Made in China/Pakistan/Whatever' tool just broke.

    Maybe this is what really has you guys hacked off:

    August 30
    Ohio State 28

    Washington State 9



    COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Craig Krenzel dropped back, surveyed the defense and ran 23 yards into the end zone for a score while Maurice Clarett watched from the sideline.

    With Krenzel directing the offense and the same stout defense that won the national title, Ohio State didn't miss its star running back a bit.

    Krenzel accounted for 230 yards and ran for two first-half scores as the second-ranked Buckeyes opened the season with a punishing 28-9 victory over No. 17 Washington on Saturday night.

    "I don't think we ever relied on just one person," Krenzel said. "This year, we have so many weapons offensively that we're only going to be as good as our ability to spread the ball around."

    Clarett showed little emotion as he stood on the sideline in a red sweat suit serving the first of his multigame suspension for violating NCAA rules.

    But even without their best player and five defensive starters who are in the NFL, the Buckeyes looked just as tough as they did in winning their first national title in 34 years in the Fiesta Bowl against Miami in January.

    "It was great to play football again," coach Jim Tressel said. "That's what we like to do. That's one of the reasons these guys are at Ohio State. It was great to play in front of 105,000 fans. The atmosphere was extraordinary."

    Clarett's replacements, Maurice Hall and Lydell Ross, each ran for a score in the Buckeyes' 15th straight win, the second-longest streak in school history. Hall finished with 58 yards on 15 carries and Ross had 43 on 12.

    "More than anything else we sent a message to ourselves. We feel confident with the players we have and the coaches we have that we can beat anybody in the country," Krenzel said.

    The defensive line led by Simon Fraser, Will Smith and Darrion Scott gave Cody Pickett no time to throw and held the Huskies to seven yards rushing.

    Washington had nearly as tumultuous an offseason as Ohio State, firing coach Rick Neuheisel for taking part in an NCAA tournament pool. Offensive coordinator Keith Gilbertson, who was promoted to the head coaching job July 29, had no answers in his Huskies coaching debut.

    "They are as advertised," Gilbertson said. "They are big and powerful and quick and they have lots of athletes."

    Washington, which averaged 420.7 yards per game last year, was held to 147 yards through three quarters and didn't score a touchdown until Pickett's 2-yard run with 3:27 remaining.

    "We were flying around," Buckeyes defensive lineman Tim Anderson said. "We were making good open-field tackles. I don't think we missed very many tackles. That was the key."

    With Clarett sidelined, the Buckeyes came out throwing the ball early for a change.

    Krenzel, who had more than 22 pass attempts just once last season, threw 18 times in the first half as Ohio State took a 21-0 lead in front of an enthusiastic crowd of 105,078 in the sixth night game ever at Ohio Stadium.

    With running back Rich Alexis bottled up by Ohio State's line, Washington's high-powered duo of Pickett and receiver Reggie Williams generated little offense.

    "They were a pretty solid defensively,"
    Williams said. "They have four guys up front that put a lot of pressure on you and it causes you to do things you shouldn't do."

    Buckeyes cornerback Chris Gamble shadowed Williams every time he lined up wide and Williams got most of his 10 catches on short passes in the slot. Pickett finished 26-for-49 for 255 yards.

    On Ohio State's second drive, Krenzel hit Drew Carter on a 37-yard pass to set up Hall's 2-yard score.

    Krenzel completed three straight passes for 37 yards on the next drive before weaving his way through Washington's defense for a 23-yard score that made it 14-0.

    After punter B.J. Sander pinned Washington on its own 1 late in the second quarter, the Buckeyes defense forced a punt. Gamble returned Garth Erickson's 34-yard kick 10 yards to the 25 with 2:07 left.

    Krenzel completed a key third-down pass to Santonio Holmes before scampering into the end zone on third-and-10 from the 11 with 11 seconds left in the half.

    "The most important thing a quarterback does is make decisions," Tressel said. "He goes back and sees if the routes are open. If not, he steps up and goes."

    Krenzel finished 15-for-27 for 203 yards and ran for 27 more to improve to 16-1 as a starter.

    Washington started the second half with its first sustained drive of the game, using short passes and five-receiver sets to go 47 yards to set up Evan Knudson's 46-yard field goal.

    But Ohio State put the game away with a punishing Clarettlike 15-yard run by Ross, who bulled through Jimmy Newell's arm tackle on his way into the end zone to make it 28-3.

    So anyway, nonono90, if you have any problems putting it together with simple hand tools, I think you might not be doing it right.

    Can you believe there wasn't a damn Snap-On truck sitting in front of his house waiting to sell him a punch at 500% over value when he needed it?!



    LOL.
