I think the "bath tub bomb shelter" only works with older cast iron/steel tubs????

Or is that the new Kevlar tub/shower enclosure???   :D

The greatest fun you can have is shooting at people trying to attack you while eating cookies!  :D

If those were tactical cookies should they not be camo colored?

Maybe it is a hand, just in case you lose one, as you know the old adage 'Two is one and one is none!'

If they were camo they'd blend in with the other gear...& you know how bad it would suck to take a bite expecting yummy cookie goodness & instead taste...mag pouch, or something else equally unappetizing.

Awesome, I have always wanted to try to build one of those, but wasn't sure where to start.  That, and I keep getting side-tracked building other things.  That is a really sweet looking rifle...

Here are some of ours, basically our Primary weapons:

I'll start off with the least exciting, our daughter's set:



It's your standard Colt Lightweight Sporter without any bells or whistles.  She knows enough to shoot the rifle well, but doesn't shoot it enough to take advantage of any optics, etc.  The handgun is a stock USP45 with Meprolight nightsights.


Now, Mrs. Professor's gun.



This started out as a Bushmaster rifle, but the wife saw a Sabre Heavy upper w/ 16.1" 1x8" barrel and convinced me to exchange it for her.  She also wanted the Vltor Modstock and Forearm.  Originally, this was her 3-gun competitive rifle and had no flip-up sights except on the forearm mount that sat on the right side at 45-degrees.  She'd use the scope for targets past 20 yards and cant the rifle 45 degrees counterclockwise to use the sights for closer targets she could rip fast through.  Since we haven't done 3-gun in a year or so, I moved these sights to the standard rail as back-up sights for the scope and swapped out her original scope mount for a GG&G quick-throw mount.  If the scope goes down, she can remove it in less than 2 seconds, flip up the front and rear sights and get back into action.

I also swapped out the standard peep rear and post front sights for Trijicon tritium sites for use in low-light.

Her rifle does rather well with heavier bullets such as the 68gr Federal HPBT Match or 69-gr Hornady TAP out to 450m.  She's done pretty good to 500m with 77-gr Black Hills and reloads, but I think it's pushing the envelope for this particular set-up.

The pistol is a standard H&K USP45 w/ Meprolight nightsights.

Finally, My FrankenGun:



This has been a LONG project for me to find what I wanted as the "ultimate" Survival Rifle.  I'll explain as I go along.

Lower: Tactical Innovations billet lower. Why?  Well, they make strong lowers.  Truth be known, an AR lower isn't all that important with the exception of how well the magwell's cut, the pinholes are centered properly, etc.  The Tactical Innovations lower can be a bit of a headache for your standard set up. . .there are a couple of proprietary differences between TI's and standard lowers.  For example, the TI's have a screw that allows you to tighten the upper to the lower for a nice, rock-tight fit.  You also have to hand-fit a bolt-release into it's appropriate slot and putting the safety detent spring in is a B**CH as they have a special screw that holds it in, instead of relying upon pressure from the pistol grip.

The lower is set up with Chrome-Silicon springs where-ever I could put them (National Match hammer springs, NM trigger return spring, ejector spring, extractor spring and recoil spring.  Why?  Because Chrome-Silicon (CS) springs have a much longer life than standard music wire springs which are usually used in firearms.    CS springs have a minimum lifespan of 1,000,000 cycles with little degradation of performance and a drastically reduced chance of breakage.  Plus, the extractor spring gives up to 80% more pressure than a standard extractor spring and all CS springs are unaffected by heat up to 750 degrees fahrenheit.   

Buttstock and pistol grip are both from MagPul.  I like the MagPul collapsible stock because it locks down very tight and doesn't rattle.

The upper is totally different from just about anything else on the market.  I'll start with the barrel. 

One of my primary desires in an "Ultimate AR" is longevity.  In a true TEOTWAWKI scenario, I may not be able to obtain replacement parts and the rifle, itself, may be passed down to future generations.  Most AR barrels, for example, probably won't last beyond 25k - 30k rounds, chrome-lined or not.

After a bit of searching, I found out about Armstech who had a carbine with a heavy stainless barrel they claimed would last up to 150,000 rounds.  Using a proprietary steel, a gain-twist polygonal rifling and gas trap system, they made a rather interesting claim.  Additionally, they claimed phenomenal accuracy and the ability to keep this accuracy with bullets ranging from 55-gr up to 77-gr.

So, I scraped together the obscene price and got a barreled upper.

I can not yet attest to the longevity of the barrel, as I've only been able to put about 500 rounds through the rifle.  But the accuracy claims are 100% true.  I've personally been able to hit 8" pie plates consistently out to 750m with 75-grain TAP and handloaded 77-gr Sierra Matchking bulleted rounds.

From Armstech, the upper came with a fitted bolt to which I mated a JP Enterprises carrier.  They installed the POF forearm to which I attached a Burris X14 scope on a GG&G quick-release throw mount.  Yankee Hill Machine flip-up front and rear sights with Trijicon tritium inserts are installed as back-ups.  The entire rifle, except for the fluted barrel, is finished in Duracoat in MultiCam Medium green and I've installed a stubby foregrip to aid in close-in shooting as well as off-hand accuracy.  The green stuff on the forearm and scope is another project I'm working on.  It's a flexible, protective coating I'm calling TacTack.  Not only will it protect metal and optics from scraping, but it gives a rough, but not damaging grip to the hands.  It's imperfect as it's still a bit glossy, but we're working on that.

So far, I've become extremely satisfied with this set up with the possible exception that I wish it were a bit lighter.  The barrel on this rifle pushes the entire package just over the 9-lb mark, which is a bit heavy for a carbine.  But, it's still lighter, and more accurate, than it's predecessor, an Vltor-stocked M1a Bush Rifle.

The handgun is a slightly modified H&K USP Expert (Meprolight night sights, bobbed hammer) finished in Robar's NP3.

Colt AR15A3 with YHM full-length quad rail, MagPul buttstock, Burris FastFire red dot sight, MI flip-up sights, cheapo vertical foregrip and cheapo Chinese flashlight with strobe feature, and CAA single-point sling.



Swiss K31 carbine.  This is an AWESOME little gun!

OJ, how long have you had your AR-15 set up this way?  The reason I ask is I had one set up virtually identical to yours (see my post on the first page of this thread).  I found out after having it this way for quite a while and shooting the piss out of it, just how heavy and unbalanced that beast was with the standard weight YHM full length rail on a carbine.  I have since taken mine back to the standard FSB and put on a set of Magpul MOE handguards, so the plastic would match the buttstock.  I am sure you are well aware the YHM handguard weighs in at nearly 23 oz by itself, and I also had the trim ring installed, probably another ounce or two.  If you like it this way, and plan on building another...I have a full length handguard I will gladly sell you....

Oh by the way, I really do like the looks of it, hell I had one myself.  I wish I had stuck to black like yours though...mine was the first and LAST one I built for myself with a non-black color scheme....but I am building a pink one for the wife.

I've had mine set up that way for about a year now.  My ORIGINAL idea was to have a high-magnification scope on top, and the FastFire mounted at a 45-degree angle.  That worked out kinda so-so, but was extremely awkward.  The idea was to have a solution for fast, close shooting, and precision shooting at distance.  Turned out to be jack of all trades, master of none.

It IS a bit front-heavy, but I don't mind.  I needed the extra rail space to get the front sight out further, to maximize the sight radius.  I also needed a gap between the mag well and the vertical grip/light, so that it would fit in my patrol car's rack.  (a tight fit - see that scratched area?)

This one does everything I need it to do.  My main concern is an active shooter situation inside a large building, or in another urgent 100 yards plus, gotta-stop-it-NOW location.

If I were to do it again, though, I might consider forgoing the vertical grip, finding a different mounting solution for the light, and spending the extra money on an EOTech or Aimpoint red dot sight.

I run a few hundred rounds through it every month.  Good thing I reload..... ;D

Millerized...I'll mow your yard for it.  8) Beggars can't be choosy.

This is my 20 gauge 1956 Mossberg. I would like to sand this down and make it look nice. So far, I love this thing!



This is my Hi-Point 995. This is just fun. Its ugly, but fun. I love the sights on this thing. If I can get the mag to stop jamming then it would be very awesome.



And my favorite. My Ruger P95 9 mm.



I am looking into getting a 22 also. If I do I will post it on here. I am not rich so I don't have much, but I am trying to get certain types of gun to perform specific tasks. I think I am almost there...on a budget.  8)

Hey Coldhaven
Is that Mossberg a KA385 with C-Lect Choke and 26" barrel?

If so, mine is identical. Was actually, it is now evil black, because I sanded down the stock and made it so. Got it for $30 in 1984. Used it to stop a home invasion in 1984 (all I had at the time). Never met someone else who had one. Mine doesn't even have a serial#, it's so old.
