Re: Yankee Heatwave Alert

The problem is when it gets hot and humid in some of those places and they don't have any AC and they don't want open their windows because of the risk of theft. Old people bake and die in those conditions. Just a FYI. In all honesty, there shouldn't be any place in America like that. Seriously. We...

Re: Delton ar any good.

For $450 bucks you have a good plinker. If you don't like it come election time sell it and make a nice profit. If you like it you have a cheap shootable AR.

You can always pick up something better off the ground after the show starts.

Re: LGS has South African 7.62x39 brass WTH?

I think depending on the lot, it could very well be surplus. The South Africans captured more than a few AKs, and their SF units used some (just like the Rhodies) They also provided quite a bit of ammo to semi-friendly insurgent groups and "liberation armies" so, it could very well have been produc...

Re: LGS has South African 7.62x39 brass WTH?

The info I was going off was on an article that came when I googled this ammo that it wasn't surplus. The SA's maybe came up with this ammo when designing stuff off of captured weapons and ammo. I would imagine they were checking to see if it was worth investing their own firearms in the caliber. I ...

Just scored a beautiful 40 for $50.
The 30rd mags generally start at 30 if in good condition and go up from there.

$35 is as high as I’d pay for a pristine blued flatback.
I guess $50 isn't a bad price but I would have to think about it.

Re: What does PSA say about using steel ammo in the AKV?

Steel ammo was made for AK's. https://images.novarata.net/0/150-line-clr.png https://images.novarata.net/b/bullshi-asl.gif Ammunition made with steel alloys predates the AK.

Romy's are fine with me and I keep buying them if I find them on a deal. Now Chinese 40's I wish I had but also have a Romy;s but would like to try some Ch...

Re: What does PSA say about using steel ammo in the AKV?

Steel ammo was made for AK's. I don't own a newly made AKM but if it couldn't shoot steel ammo I wouldn't want it, Cheap steel ammo is a reason why I got into AK's. No if any American made steel 7.62x39 ammo could be a problem in the future but now stack it deep if you haven't already. I think of br...

Re: LGS has South African 7.62x39 brass WTH?

Thank you for the input guys. I think I might swing by and buy a couple more boxes later.

Except for a case of corrosive Yugo surplus stuff I just picked up I really don't have any brass 7.62x39 except for some odds and ends.

LGS has South African 7.62x39 brass WTH?

I happened to wander into a LGS (Murphy's) and they had 25rd brown angled (like a pyramid without the points) cardboard boxes of South African 7.62x39 brass cased FMJ ammo for $9.99 a box. Never fails they always have some strange normally surplus 39 ammo. Anybody shoot much of it? Any good? The lit...
