Sig is also standing up a primer manufacturing facility. I expect the primer situation in 2023 will be a lot better between these entrants and imports.

Oh, excellent. The pin itself is not all that hard to push out once the extractor is out.

I think it could work. Maybe check out how to relieve pressure on the pin from the extractor to give yourself a little bit of an advantage.

The problem is that the extractor pin is offset, so driving it out all the way with just a punch is extremely difficult, and you can only drive it out one way (not from the bottom). The usual way to...

Their proposed criteria would be as rough on 9mm braced "pistols" as 5.56 braced "pistols". The only thing that would have made the pistol caliber guns score better would be not putting LPVOs and the...

Weirdly enough, I've been converting back to 16" on a few rifles because of some competition rules. Must admit that the shorter barrels are very nice with cans on them, though.

The real argument for SBRs right now is that the ATF is hot to ban braced pistols, and thus they may not be a great long-term investment. Of course, if you want to go < 29" OAL, there's no other game...

The problem with Lee's priming system isn't the upstroke, it's the absolutely garbage hand-off between the feeder and the priming arm. The RCBS system is like a million times better.

Unless we're going overseas to fight the Russians, this is an unlikely scenario. The Ukranians are running 5.45x39 and 7.62x39 rifles, and that's not what Lake City is designed to produce.

I wasn't sure if it was like an SRM or like a Calico. There's not a whole lot of information out there about it. I will say that it doesn't look a whole lot like an SRM magazine.
