    6.8 Mags??? Any leads?

    Procrastinator here, got a lower, no upper but have hands on a new Bushy 6.8 complete upper 16", no mags and can't seem to find any online. Mags would help me decide to buy it or wait and find a 223 upper, can get the 6.8 for under 7 bills, under the present conditions, I think thats a fair price.

    Gunsmithing Rem 788 safety question.(UPDATED WITH PICS)

    I have a Rem 788 carbine 308 that I love and plan to turn it into my "boxstand" gun. The only problem I have with it is the safety. It will flip off safety with very little pressure, even a brush on your clothes will flip it off. It takes much more pressure to put it back on safety. Is there...

    Maggie’s The type girl I want

    When I was 14, I hoped that one day I would have a girlfriend. When I was 16 I got a girlfriend, but there was no passion, so I decided I needed a passionate girl with a zest for life.
