    Question for all of you New Yorkers...

    My son just turned 17 and for his birthday I told him that he could buy the parts to build his own AR15. He was originally going to try to build it himself, but he realized that there are a lot of tools that he does not have does not have the money to buy. Now he wants to bring the parts to a...

    Proud to be an American.

    I was on youtube recently and found this randomly. It has an except of Reagan's speech "A Time For Choosing," which I think it one of the most powerful and inspirational speeches in history. Watching the video gave me goose bumps and each play (yes, I am responsible for about 15 of those plays)...

    Thanks for the help...bought an EDM M96

    Just a little update and thanks to all of those who helped me and my dad out in choosing a .50 BMG. He ended up being sold on EDM's M96 and put an order in for one yesterday. Hopefully he'll get it during the summer and he and I can have some good, badass fun shooting it. A question for those...

    .50 Cal Recomendations?

    Today my dad told me that he was interested in getting some kind of .50 BMG rifle. Of course I immediately thought of Barrett, but I am fully aware that Barrett is not the only and not necessary one of the better .50's out there (it may be--I dont know much about .50's). He's not an extremely...

    Rifle Scopes My new S&B

    I just ordered a new Schmidt and Bender PMII 3-12x50 Gen II MTC from EuroOptic today for my future M40A3. I only live about 5 hours away from their PA warehouse so hopefully I'll get the optic within a few days. Pics and a brief review will come when I actually get the scope.

    Rifle Scopes Proper M40A3 Optic?

    I've finally ordered a mil-spec M40A3 from GAP and want to get an equally high-quality optic for it. I was originally thinking of going with a USO SN-3, but I've (partially) decided that if I am paying as much as I am for the rifle to be mil-spec, it would be cool and worth it as well to get the...

    What is this called...(derp moment)?

    I'm having one of those derp moments and I cannot think of what this is called for the life of me. Its like little pack that you put on the butt of the stock that serves as a cheek pad and holds extra rounds. I've included a picture just in case I'm not being clear enough. Can anyone...

    Rifle Scopes McMillan-Ceracote Colors?

    I think I'm going to go with an A4 stock with a McCamo (McMillan Camo) and wanted by barrel/optic to match some of the colors in the stock (at least until I get bored of it and have the balls to take some Krylon to all of it). Does anyone know how the colors equate (or if they do at all). I...

    Finally ordering a GAP

    So after much research and whatnot, I am finally getting around to ordering an M40A5 from GAP (so excited!). I've hunted before but have always bought guns straight from Cabelas or other stores so this will be the first custom gun I've even gotten. Whenever I get into to something new...

    I saw that USO is going to release two new scopes during SHOT in this thread: http://www.snipershide.com/forum/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=3017904#Post3017904 and confirmed it with someone at USO. But...has anyone actually seen these or have pictures of them or have some spec? I am...

    Rifle Scopes What scope is this?

    I'm almost done with Chris Kyle's autobiography (a great read) and this picture is featured in it. I can tell what kind of scope he is using in almost every other picture but this. Out of curiosity, does anyone know what make the scope is?

    Gunsmithing Experience with Custom Calibers?

    I don't know whether this falls under gunsmithing or reloading-frankly, I think it could be under both-so yes, I did post it in both sections. Anyways, has anyone had any experience with custom calibers. I do not mean something like a wildcat round, but <span style="font-weight...

    Rifle Scopes US Optics SN-3 SSDS or S&B PMII 3-12x50 LP?

    I'm getting an M40A5 and I've ironed out every single detail except for the scope. I want to make it as true to Mil Spec as possible but am torn between the US Optics SN-3 3.5-17x SSDS and the Schmidt and Bender PMII 3-12x50 LP. Has anyone out here used these scopes (and maybe even both), and if...

    M40A5 Advice?

    Hi all, I've been reading these forums for a bit now and I finally decided to make an account to join in on the banter and fun. I guess I'll make this an introductory post as well seeking advice. I've shot with my father ever since I was a kid and we've done a bit of hunting. My 'baby' is...
