    PSA PA10 (308) Experiment

    Excellent pictorial history of this project so far. None of mine are anywhere near this nice and thorough. If you're going to use the PSA bolt, I suggest rounding off that ejector a lot more than it is presently. If you find pics of other "enhanced" bolts, a lot of the ejectors will be...

    That's bad news right there. If that's dry chem it's worse than tear gas

    PSA PA10 (308) Experiment

    On the adjustable gas block issue: I went from a Seekins low profile adjustable that I had to count the number of rounds I turned the adjustment screw (starting from the fully closed position) to the Seekins select gas block (linked below). This one has a throw lever you can lock down on the...

    PSA PA10 (308) Experiment

    Yes, this was my issue when I ditched the heavy PSA bbl for the Faxon pencil barrel. The Faxon came with the "Armalite AR10 carbine" spacing rather than the "PSA AR15 midlength" spacing, which made my "midlength" gas tube too short by 5/16". The Armalite tubes were out of stock everywhere at the...

    I hope the lol means you're joking. Break it in dripping with oil please.

    PSA PA10 (308) Experiment

    Just know that the Armalite system will come with the H3 buffer, which is already the heaviest of the "standard buffers". To go heavier, you'll have to go to something like Heavybuffers.com.

    PSA PA10 (308) Experiment

    I went through the scenic route to get to where I am today. The shorter buffer system on a 16" bbl 308 can be made to work reliably but the longer system is much easier. My suppressor is a YHM Phantom titanium QD, bought back in or before 2010. I'm sure there are more modern designs that...

    PSA PA10 (308) Experiment

    I've loved a 2 stage trigger since I was a kid. I haven't mentioned it but I do have a PSA 2 stage nickel boron trigger in mine. Also, on the subject of buffers and tubes, I started out fixing my existing buffer system with a Sprinco orange recoil spring coupled with a Kaw Valley 5.6 oz buffer...

    PSA PA10 (308) Experiment

    I bought Forster .308 gages when I suspected headspace problems. Go, No-go, and field. My original bolt closed and locked easily on the no-go and almost closed on the field. On 2 barrels. So I replaced it with a Lantac bolt in my original carrier. No more problems with that. I didn't bother...

    PSA PA10 (308) Experiment

    Looking at your to-do list it looks like you have everything covered. IMO you need to check headspace too. I didn't at first and that set me back considerably on troubleshooting. The fact that my original bolt allowed too much headspace coupled with all the other problems on your list had me...

    308 AR Jamming

    That should read 0.093" obviously. And I agree with the 308AR forum. Just don't ask a bunch of questions before you do a lot of READING.

    308 AR Jamming

    AR15 carbine buffer weights: normal -- 3.0 oz H or H1 -- 3.8 oz H2 -- 4.6 oz H3 -- 5.4 oz These are for AR15s.--NOT 308s. The minimum weight required to handle 308 recoil is normally H3 or 5.4 oz. Coupled with a heavier spring for 308, not 5.56. Most M5/DPMS 308 buffer setups come with an AR15...

    308 AR Jamming

    New large frame AR. Pull the BCG and SUBMERGE it in Mobil 1 overnight. Pull it out of the oil and allow it to drain the excess runoff. Re-assemble and run a couple hundred rds of ammo through it. This is the only way I know to get the message across that these things need to be over-lubed until...

    Half Sleeve tattoos.

    I should have noticed that. There's a proliferation of new members (glowies?) dragging up ancient threads. Thank you for pointing that out.

    OP-----JMHO Just don't. Yes I am old and you'd probably call me a Fudd. You'll be old too one day if you're fortunate. Your views and opinions will change. That is all.
