What a fascinating modern age we live in...



Incidentally, if anyone wants to follow the book's advice and upgrade, I'll gladly swap you a brand new FSN 1005-937-3078 for your crummy old FSN 1005-992-6658.

Uhoh...I'm not sure if I did all of my hammers the way they show...

They've worked fine so far...

I'm still trying to find a scan of the comic where it explains that the old "waffle mags" are bad, and need to be swapped-out for the new-style!

The really funny thing is that I had 10 of those waffles at one time that I only paid $15 a piece for . This was a long time before retro was a hobby trust me on that.

I here the term "Field Fix" used a lot. The Black Rifle book uses the term field fix whilst describing certain parts, such as the "improved" Firing Pins.
I know what a field fix is, but does anyone know what the official protocol was for parts swapped out in the field ? Were they destroyed on the spot, sent home by the armorers, or simply just thrown in the trash?

I wasn't aware that the Edgewater buffer had fiber washers inside it, or hydraulic fluid, for that matter...
