Springfield Armory Operator 2 month report

back in november I purchased a SA operator. I've put about 530 round through this gun and it's cycled just fine however the pistol will just barely eject the last case and sometimes it will get stuck in the port or caught in the feed lips of the mag. I'm no pistol smith but I believe it's due to a bad/improperly tuned extractor. the problem didn't reveal itself right away but just today it became very bad. it's done this with the two original mags and two 8 rounch chip mccormick shooting star mags....

the gun is civilized

something I found floating around the internet that I thought everyone might be interested in

"The Gun Is Civilization" by Maj. L. Caudill USMC (Ret)

Human beings only have two ways to deal with one another: reason and force.
If you want me to do something for you, you have a choice of either convincing me via argument, or force me to do your bidding under threat of force.

Every human interaction falls into one of those two categories,...

letter to all elected officals in response to the AZ shooting

Posted 01-13-2011 at 20:51 by bigghoss

if you haven't yet you need to contact your elected officials and let them know they should not rush to pass laws as a reaction to the AZ shooting. below is an email I've sent to my congressmen and am planning to send to my state government as well. you may notice most of my last blog entry is used in the message.

Dear sir, thank you for taking the time to read this message, I realize you must be very busy. I'm writing this in response to the recent tragic shooting in Arizona. I know...

shooting in AZ

Posted 01-09-2011 at 22:17 by bigghoss
