Afraid of a few scratches?

I've seen pics of someone using a small piece of skate tape there, but I think that'd be more of a pain in the ass than anything.

That's like wearing a condum while masturbating.


Just shoot it.

Yes, use a piece of electrical tape if brass marks offend thee.

I agree with you Stickman... Electrical tape is the ticket, He wont have to deal with that nasty residue that duct tape leaves behind plus the color will match his pretty finish...

Egads!!

Would a brass catcher be useful - or does the shell bounce off the deflector into the bag?

actually, black tape might be a tad better--blends in and not as sticky w/ the residue

no residue gaffers tape.

A small piece of black electrical tape works the best and leaves no residue behind once removed. Duct tape I wouldn't recommend because it is thinner and can leave bad residue behind.

Either way, you shouldn't need to use anything on your brass deflector since a rag and some CLP or Hoppes #9 will rub the brass marks off in 2 seconds and everything will look like new again.

Test firing a gun that you want to sell as new but test fired for function

then it is not new.

A firearm should absolutely be test fired before it is shipped out to the buyer or dealer. Every new firearm I have ever purchased had at least one round down the pipe before I bought it and I'm glad it did. Murphy is omnipresent.

I believe test firing 'complete builds' is standard procedure for all gun manufacturers...

I don't think js600 is wanting to eliminate the function of the deflector... He's wanting to avoid brass scuff marks and finish chipping...

Vagisil...or maybe a ShopVac for all the sand in ones snapper.

I can't believe this guy isn't getting completely flamed.

Hey buddy if you're afraid of your rifle getting marked up, DON'T SHOOT IT.

God forbid it gets a mark on it. Then the thing is completely useless.
Link Posted: 2/5/2006 3:59:40 PM EDT
why would i get flamed? all i did was ask a question. i didn't tell you why i asked. it's possible i want the finish to remain good or maybe i am denting cases that i want to reload, or just maybe i'm curious. not all of us want battle scars on our weapons. i guess that's how others knew that duct(duck)tape leaves residue. i guess they should be flamed too. but thanks for your wisdom and advise.

get a piece of that stick on velcro and cut it to size

Yes and they should have a brass mark on them to show it. Seen enough of "never fired" guns for sale with enough carbon build up to cook a hamburgh.

OK be completely honest, I am not trying to be a

How many rounds have you shot through this firearm?

The reason I ask is because You sound like myself, way back when I was an Apprentice. I used to take my tools home every night and clean and POLISH them. There is taking care of tools, and then there is OCD.

I think Bushwacker85 has it right. ThatIS hot.

BTW so is soot on the end of my G19

You mean you don't use one? I thought it was normal...

Not nearly as rough as a wool sock....

Agreed. AR15 is battle rifle....not a safe queen
Link Posted: 2/6/2006 5:23:54 AM EDT
I think I got this guy figured out.

Dude, taggin your buddies girl while he is out of town is kinda wrong ok, but taggin his un-fired AR, now thats a whole new level of scumbag.

Feed his dog, get his mail, and maybe, just maybe fondle the AR a bit, but wipe off the fingerprints and drool. Save up your pennies and get your own.

In the meantime, offer to wash his car or some shit, and ya might get a chance to shoot it someday. Dont be a total ass though, bring your own ammo.

Now, the above does not apply if your buddy is a total jerk and the AR in question is a safe queen that hasn't been fired in the 2 years he's owned it. In that case, the Coalition to End AR cruelty and neglect demand that you shoot it behind his back......make sure to leave marks on the upper from the charging handle latch, brass on the deflector, and plenty of drag marks from multiple mag changes in the mag well. Of course, all of this is much more fun if he is duct-taped to a chair and forced to watch.
