I'd actually be interested in seeing this if it's not too much trouble. Help me get an idea for some of the things they do.

Has anyone done a 0% lower build? submitted by auxiliary-character to DIYGUNS

If you have a 3D printer, it's possible, but still a giant pain in the ass, and it would almost certainly require hand fitting/filing (particularly the mag well).

Also, it will almost certainly come out "blocky" as 3D printed jigs would have nowhere near the rigidity to mill some of the complex contours present in a standard lower. Finally, you'll definitely have trouble with some spots, such as the bolt catch area.

Personally, with a 3D printer and no mill, I'd look into making 3D printed or "hybrid" (metal reinforced, 3D printed) lowers. Use the printer to make jigs for all the holes, then use bar stock to give the assembly strength.

Sorry for a lack of better description. Random Walmarts have Winchester ammo marked down pretty low, especially for steel shot. Personaly, I shoot on private property and prefer to not rain lead everywhere when we shoot skeet.

\020892024007. For Winchester lead, 1oz shot, #8, 2 3/4

020892015579 for Winchester super x steel shot, 1 1/8 oz #4

020892015531 for Winchester super x steel, 1 1/8 oz, #2

020892015616 for Winchester super x steel, 1 1/8 oz, #2

They also had estate lead shells for $5.5 a box, but they were sold out at my local Walmart and I forgot to get the upc.

I strongly suggest calling ahead, as I will admit I've gotten burned on about 50% of the brickseek deals I've investigated.

CETME Kit Build submitted by swastikawaii to DIYGUNS

Unfortunately, the welding (or a flat) is what will cost you an arm and a leg. Especially as the receiver is a key part to the gun not exploding.

Unfortunately that leaves you with two undesirable choices: buy a welder/learn to weld/do it yourself (what I'm trying, but I haven't gotten to a point I believe in my skill enough). Or pay a bunch for an flat receiver/jug/bending tools or pay a bunch for someone to weld it.

Edit: actually the flats aren't too much, and some people claim you can bend them without too much money spent on tooling. But they didn't list the tools they used...

10$ electric hearing muffs submitted by Reddit_eats_tidepods to Gundeals

I have 2 or 3 pairs I got on the last sale. Mine seem to eat batteries (compared to my other electric war pro) and aren't the best in terms of sound quality so I wouldn't take them hunting. But for $10, they are good for guests, as with regular ear pro I've had them take them off to hear then fail to put them back on.

I'd rather replace my barrel than worry about lead poisoning, based on where I shoot (local animals are hunted and most water is well water). Yes, the chances of lead issues is small, but the cost of a shotgun barrel is worth it to me. My shotgun is nothing special, I'd never use steel in a classic/unique gun though.
