So far so good. Nice looking SAR3. Let's see the whole rifle!

edit: polished bolt carrier or flash?

Looking good. Check your light source setting. It should have a daylight and an indoor setting. If you set it correctly it will adjust for the different light source. Your pic looks like you might have used the wrong setting, hence the slightly yellow cast.

I didn't know the SAR-3's came with a 90 degree gasblock or are my eyes fooling me?

M-60, That SAR-3 looks real familiar!

Hey what camera did you buy?

Yup. 90 degree block.

It should. You've been behind the trigger.

I'm still learnin' how to use it. (obviously)

Yes it is.

Wow, very nice looking! Could you give us a play by play on how to polish the bolt carrier? Thanks.

Sure. Remove carrier from rifle. Get out your metal polish. Get out your "dremel" tool with polishing wheels. Apply polish to carrier. Apply "dremel" tool to carrier. Repeat till shiny.

There are some tooling marks on the carrier that do not show up in the photo. Its not a "high crome shine" that it appears.

Much better grasshopper!

For whatever reason the tape reminds me of the French flag more then anything. Nice pics though.

Even after the explanation, it still looks like a French flag to me.

what kind of accuracy is your sar getting with the black hills ammunition?



I really don't know. I have not had the chance to really "bench" it yet. It usually eats el cheapo wolf junk.

What kind of camera ya usin?
Link Posted: 6/18/2003 4:04:42 AM EDT
Yes, what brand/model camera. How many megapixeles? The pictures are nice. I still see a little lack of detail. Unless you have a bunch of equipment and experience never use the flash for high quality pictures. Shoot at the highest rez setting and then down convert to web 72-100dpi. See below - notice the detail and clarity. Almost like you can reach out and touch the wood. I would say images from cameras are based on 85% equipment and 15% human. The digital world needs lots of mega-pixels to get detail and must also have great optics.

Wow! Those are really nice. My photos are shrunk down quite a bit from my web server. What is a good pict hosting place that I can get the full size pits on?


I'm using a Powershot A70 (Canon) 3.2 MP. I'm still learning how to work alot of this stuff.

I host my pictures on my website which is hosted by my ISP Roadrunner. Check with your isp, almost all services give you free website space.

The re-sizing back and forth can screw up your images.

Blaze, what kind of camera do you have?
Link Posted: 6/19/2003 3:10:27 AM EDT
The link is fixed. Sony 707 camera
Link Posted: 6/19/2003 5:11:50 AM EDT
Is that a French M-16?

Nah, I'm just messing with yah. The AR-15 looks a little weird with the slabside on an A2 model. Did they ever issue the slabside when the M-16 was first adopted. My girlfriend's dad went to Nam in '65 and he said they all had fences.

Blazeone,

Russian Ak74m. What type of receiver is that? Russian parts? Who Built it? How about the history on that sweet looking gun.

BTW, thanks for the slabside. It looks great.
Link Posted: 6/25/2003 5:17:22 PM EDT
It was produced by Marc Krebs. It uses a Russian Saiga receiver and a Bulgarian AK74 parts kit. I have added the real Russian plum furniture set and kobra.

Does the Saiga receiver reproduce the original 74m receiver? I noticed it doesn't have the mag well dimples.
Link Posted: 6/25/2003 5:40:48 PM EDT
You are correct no dimples. It is however a very stong receiver and if you want a Russian made receiver it is the only game in town.
