post any firearm accessory failures here

Recommended Posts

I wanted to post the failures of accessories that I have tried one was a shotgun tube extension it was aluminum


The threads failed even with a barrel / tube stabilizing clamp since I have not used any mods on my shotguns


Although I could have singly loaded the shells, but that is not an option for b@lls in the wall fire fight.



The flash hider for a Ruger 10/22 the Allen screw was junk metal and had to be drilled out so if you decide to use one,


have an EZE out and or replace the Allen screw with a small bolt that you can grip with pliers or use a crescent wrench.




Many rapid fire trigger adapters are fun, but I have tried a few on firearms that came trough and they work but are


Not heavy duty and might be used on a secondary weapon system but not the primary at your bug in on the trail


I think having one on your primary would be a mistake.


Military weapons have tested and heavy duty attachment points and even they can fail so I keep my stuff virgin


Strictly original no conversions no add on unless like a screw on flash hider or properly fitted kick pad I pass.


This last paragraph reminded me that a true rifle is able to be used as a close combat weapon so I do use


Laminated stocks or I use fiber or a severe duty material and a pad that still gives me some ability to butt stroke.


Military rifles have a metal butt plate it is to protect the grain of the wood from being sheared off when used a a butt stroke


Weapon or firing a rifle grenade or used as an alternative striking weapon to defend against multiple attacks


Bayonett on one end the metal plate on the other and the body can push back or smash frontal opponents while


At port arms so technically all of it is deadly to defensive.


Some people modify a stock to be ultra light this may lead to stock failure / breakage and this is what makes your


Rifle, accurate a stock that can warp or fit loose will probably not shoot well.


Bolt action rifles should be glass bedded into a laminated or fiber stock I like the feel of overmolded but the life span is not


impressive and with a free floated barrel and a replacement trigger like a Bold or Timney


I love wood but on a full time working bet your Azz on it platform you want it as durable as you can make it IMHO.

    • here is the survival coupons codes to get a amazing material of survival struggling 
    • Hey all, This is sort of cool (okay really cool) and maybe some of you have heard about it because it's been plastered over FOX and mentioned by POTUS as well as other conservative-leaning news people (Huckabee, Diamond/Silk, Candace Owens, Mark Levin, etc..) and politicians. #walkaway is a movement based mostly on social media. Started last year, by Brandon Straka (pronounced Strawk - like "straw" with a "k"). He's a former 2016 HRC-voting hair stylist, from NE, now in NYC, homosexual, liberal who began to question the MSM and what he was hearing. He got really frustrated as he began to do his own research. Anyway, after having his own awakening to the lies of MSM he had been following, he began an online testimonial campaign in which former liberals can post their #walkaway stories, written or video. Many are now on the "Trump Train." Many have simply left the Left. Still, others have always been non-Left and are members in support. The amazing thing is how many different people from all walks of life are beginning to wake up. Lots are not conservative on all issues, but all have a love for the USA and dislike the demonization of open political and social thinkers and speakers. This group gives solace to people scared to voice their conservative opinions or views for fear of negative professional or personal responses. It now has budding smaller groups in all 50 states and an online discussion group where people discuss current topics or issues (WITH no vitriol, gasp).  Here's the original video from Brandon. This man, Brandon has a unique, stylish, well-articulated voice to help move people "in hiding" out into the open and not be silenced. Pretty much any video Brandon does is great. Here is the Facebook page: As I see fights erupt online, I simply leave #walkaway in the comments. Brandon has a goal of 1 million members! The liberal media has called this campaign "Russian Bots" and "paid actors." It's not!!!        
    • thanks to all who  have served or are serving our great country....243 years in the making....   Trump did a good job today thanking each branch of our military and a long time coming salute to the coast guard too....
    • I can imagine food prices going up this Fall or Winter. Corn is used for live stock feed, & us humans consume a lot of corn based products, as well as corn based biofuel. I’ve been keeping a watchful eye on the mid-west of America, which is flooded by water. Where corn  & other crops are normally grown there. Farmers are quite worried about this years growing season. Time to stock up on extra food if you can, if you haven’t already. Stack it high, stack it deep. Store the foods that you normally eat. What ever the  amount of food you’ve stored,  try to double it if possible. Better extra safe, than sorry.
