Firearms and Accessories / AK Ranch Rifle
« on: May 22, 2016, 07:41:35 PM »
With the recent AK discussions and some new parts I thought I would post up some pics and thoughts on these parts.  This weapon is what I use as a do it all rifle on one of our ranches.

Base rifle is an Arsenal SGL 26
- SLR Rifleworks 13.5" mid keymod lower handguard
- SLR Rifleworks picatinny gas tube upper
- Magpul Zhukov stock
- Magpul AK MOE + grip
- Krebs Safety
- Deltapoint red dot (will be replaced with Aimpoint micro)
- Streamlight TLR 1 (will be replaced with Surefire X300)
- RS Regulate mount
- Pulsar N850 scope

The SLR and Magpul items are new to the rifle.  The gas tube rail allows to mount a low profile red dot and leave it mounted when I am running the scope. The rail allows for a longer reach and easy way to add a light.  The Zhukov stock adds much needed length for better optic eye relief without mounting the scope farther forward which upsets the already nose heavy rifle.

So far I like the set up but still wonder about durability of the Zhukov.  I will need to mount the sling at the receiver for when folded.  I will Look go with some 20 round tanker mags to trim weight.

Time will tell but I am pretty happy with the way it came out.

Might add a video when I get time.
Off Topic / Moving items inter-island?

I am wanting to ship items from Oahu to the Big Island, more specifically in a shipping container, 20' or 40', not sure yet.  I have shipped items via Young Brothers that were crate or vehicles, but not a container.  I will be calling YB in the morning but it is my understanding that they do have containers for customer use, but I don't think they deliver or pick up the container.  I really need another shipping container, so I may just buy one that still has a valid certification and ship it.  So if anyone has experience with this, about how much was the fee for the container and shipping cost, but also who did you use for container delivery and pick up and the cost of that?  Or any other options that people have used? 

Anyone got connections with a trucking guy, or someone that sells containers?   ;)
General Discussion / Ex Military Vehicle Registration?

Anyone register a decommissioned military vehicle?  Information on registration process for any former military vehicle is OK, but specifically anything large like a 6x6 5 ton, something in the M939 category or similar?  What types of challenges did you face?  RV category?  Special vehicle?  DOT requirement?  Personal, farm or business use?  Any special safety inspection considerations?  Any ideas or tips appreciated.   I figured I would start making some calls come Monday, but thought I might search for any information over the long weekend.

Firearms and Accessories / New 3 gun type AR

Finished a run of custom uppers for some customers, so I purchased an optic (Leupold MK6 1-6x20) for myself.  Started as an optic, then I decided to build it a new upper and of course it seemed to work itself into a new complete rifle.  Just waiting on the optic mount.

Firearms and Accessories / Glock 17 Gen 4. Face lift & overhaul!
« on: March 31, 2013, 09:31:15 PM »
Seems like I am always too busy working on others projects so I took some time to freshen up my Glock 17 Gen 4!

My Original Glock 17 Generation 4. As seen in many of my video's with around ~30K through it. Finally freshened it up a bit and it is looking like new! Besides the body work, new recoil spring assembly, ejector, extractor, trigger spring!

Removed the finger groves on the front strap, reshaped and undercut the trigger guard! I don't like to go too far here. Some do a horrible job at re-contouring the trigger guard. This is where I like to see it at.

I also like to radius the sides of the trigger guard to alleviate the dreaded "Glock Knuckle"! Also note the front of the trigger guard and the point where I stop removing material. Too much material is often removed here giving the front of the trigger guard an unbalanced look when they round it off.

Re-texture here is minimal. Front strap, the front and underside of the trigger guard is re-textured. This is a carry weapon and the original Gen 4 texture is very good. A more aggressive texture is also easily achieved.

Small refinement and attention to detail. While not an issue mechanically many complain about the "Pig nose" effect of the Glock pistol. While it may be a trait of the Glock pistol small attention to detail is considered and the "pig nose" is removed. Also a slight texture above the trigger guard as a finger reference.

This photo shows the removal of the finger groves on the front strap. There is a lot to left to be desired in many finger groove removals. Attention to detail here means a clean front strap. For the Gen 4 the size of the grip without a backstrap is about ideal for myself, so I do not do a reduction on the backstrap unlike the Gen 3's. Also note the slight difference in the undercut trigger guard. Also both stock grips but the "enhanced magwell" looks like it can swallow the stock one.

Stock Glocks have a magwell opening that tend to bend inward on the outer bottom of the magwell. Re-contouring the magwell with a slight flare outward and the addition of a grip plug makes for an excellent opening for a highly efficient reload without addition of a large aftermarket magwell. Care must be given here to not alter the grip and how the magazine seats in the weapon itself! When done correctly, the mag well will work like the best of an aftermarket set up.

Again two Glock 17 Generation 4's. The differences are subtle but in conjunction with one another those small differences amount to a finely fitted and precisely tuned weapon to fit the individual shooter. It is amazing how much of a difference so many small or subtle changes to the pistol can make. Of course like anything else it is shooter dependent and not one shoe size fits everyone. That is the beauty of custom fitting the weapon to the shooter!
