u/Loki_The_Trickster · 2 pointsr/rimfire

If you get curious and completely disassemble the rifle or you're replacing the Sear Spring with the YoDave one, be extremely careful when you remove the Sear Pin. There is a Sear Steel Ball in there (see 2:45 in this video) that will shoot out, and you will lose it. I only found mine after much frustration and the eventual help of a magnet. It's also very hard to get back in without a fairly simple trick, explained in this thread.

I would suggest trying to adjust the Trigger Rod Nut to adjust the trigger pull first. I've done that and found it to be quite good. That said, I'm going to buy the YoDave CZ 452 trigger kit right now and install it immediately when it comes (Hooray for not being unemployed anymore!).

Instead of a bipod like others are suggesting to steady it, I have found great pride in being able to properly use a sling (also this video and this hilarious one and this and this and this one for lefties and many others you can find yourself). My personal favorites are the M1907 leather sling and the USGI Web Sling. It's important to note that a heavier rifle does not necessarily make it more steady. In fact, after a few shots, it's more likely to become less accurate as your support arm tires. With the use of a sling, your arms will be substantially less tired than without, and you will be inherently steadier anyway.

If you can find an Appleseed Event near you, I highly recommend it. You'll get all of this from a qualified instructor with some one-on-one time as well. They suggest using a semi-automatic rifle with peep sights, but a bolt action with tangent sights (what comes standard on the CZ 452) will work splendidly. There you will learn basic riflery and marksmanship, as well as some American history through kind-of-embellished storytelling.

Here's a PDF copy of the instruction manual *PDF Warning, duh in English. Study it during take down and cleaning, and maybe you'll find the courage to completely disassemble your rifle. You'll have a greater understanding of how your rifle works after doing that.

Most importantly, be safe and have fun! You've chosen a fantastic rifle! Welcome to my favorite sport and passion!


Before handling a firearm...

remember, and remind those around you

Treat all guns as if they are loaded.

Never let the muzzle cover anything you are not willing to destroy.

Keep your finger off the trigger until your sights are on the target.

Be sure of your target and what is beyond it.

u/TripleDabz · 2 pointsr/guns

Decent rifle but I would consider

a muzzle brake to replace the birdcage flash suppressor unless of course you run NOD's in which case maybe a better flash suppressor/muzzle brake combo. A efficient muzzle brake will flatten out the recoil impulse so the gun is faster back to target or shoot tighter short range rapid fire groups (6 shot rifle bill drill). A muzzle brakes reduced recoil allows the shooter to see more detail when sighting through a magnified optic on a distant target that might be missed on a rifle without a brake. Such as exact point of the splash of a miss (ex. 1 mil high and 1/2 mil right on scope reticle) and the resulting dirt cloud drifting 45 degrees in a very short up down motion quickly settling (estimate 5 mile 3/4 value wind). Instantly you have the info needed shifting reticle 1 mil right 1/2 mil low (location where you saw the miss) onto the center of target for a quick follow up shot resulting in a hit. DPMS Muzzle Brake Miculek 1/2"-28 Thread $39.49 has been the best bang for the buck for over 20 years.

If you are running a single point sling (unclear in picture) I highly recommend going to a 2 point sling. I am a avid 3 gun competitor and we do a lot of sling work. A single point sling because the rifle is unsecured will need one hand to secure the rifle from swinging into objects or your legs when moving and if doing weapon transitions will drop in a manner causing barrel contact burns. The barrel is hot enough to burn you through clothing and god help you if you were wearing shorts or otherwise make bare skin contact. I've seen one instance where the hot barrel contacted soft exposed skin on the back of the knee and stuck. He needed help pulling it free and the 3rd degree burn was gruesome. A two point sling when looped over the left shoulder will rotate the muzzle back and away from the shooter centering the rifle against the left hip when freely released allowing the shooter to make a normal two hand pistol draw motion. A non padded 2 point sling with a quick adjust strap such as the Viking Tactics VTAC Original 2 Point Sling $39.99 allows the rifle to be securely cinched tight on the back or chest allowing the shooter to run full speed, have to hand to climb ladders or fireman carry a 150 lbs training dummy out of harms way. I attached a large silver carabiner to my adjustment strap to make it easy to locate and grab. I can secure the rifle or pull it free into a shooting position with one hand by running my hand down the sling from the shoulder until my fingers hook the carabiner all without shifting my vision towards it.

Prone is a fundamental shooting position both for maximum stability and a offering reduced profile in a gun fight. Monopoding off the magazine to improve stability and adding a Arredondo P-MAG MONOPOD BASE PAD is the ideal shape to create a monopod base in a wide arc of shooting angles. Running two mags together using a Arredondo AR MAG YOKE / COUPLER $18.53 with Arredondo basepads on both mags makes a wider even more stable platform and faster mag changes while maintaining position. In addition to dual 30's I also have a dual 20's with basepads that are perfect for low objects such as shooting unobstructed under a car that is not possible with a 30 round magazine without going side prone. Of course you will want to test your rifle and mags for monopod usage but any mag that is prone to failure due to pressure of monopodding is likely to cause other malfunctions anyways.

u/derpderpdonkeypunch · 6 pointsr/guns

I'm sorry for your loss. The fact that your relative gave you those guns speaks to how generous of a person they were. What you have is a very solid base for a collection, and several guns that not only have been greatly increasing in value of the last few years, but stand to increase further in the future.

For a 22lr to practice with, get a Ruger 10/22. You'll have to wait a bit to get a good price on one, but 3-4 times a year a basic wood stock model will go on sale for about $200. Check /r/gundeals regularly, as well as this site, which used to be slickguns, but is apparently now renamed. For ammo, gunbot.net can help you find good prices on ammo, especially if you want to order in quantity. Put some Tech Sights on it, and get a 1,24" cotton GI Sling and Uncle Mikes 1.25" QD swivels (note that you can find better prices on those if you look around.) and you'll be set up to learn to shoot most of the rifles you have there very well.

Check the FAQ. Sign up for an Appleseed Project shoot and spend a weekend learning sling supported shooting. Have fun, be safe, and welcome to the community!

u/NintenJoo · 1 pointr/ar15

I got a Tacstrap for my first sling, after doing some research. (Ended up being an awful transaction due to abysmal customer service) but that's a story for another time.

It was a convertible sling that can be used as a single point and 2 point.

And messing around with it for a bit, I realized that a single point is decent for active shooting etc, but is near useless for anything else.

So I switched it to 2 point mode. It has metal hooks on it which kind of clanked around more than I wanted. A mash hook on the rear receiver end, and an HK hook on the front. I used a Magpul front sling adapter for the rail.

It worked okay as this, but in my opinion (and others) a sling should be hooked to the farthest points on the rifle. The rear of the stock and the front as far forward on the rail.

This gives you the ability to throw the rifle on your back and it being very secure with the muzzle staying pointed up and not swinging around.

I didn't want to spend a bunch of money on another sling since I had recently bought the Tacstrap, so I tried the Proctor sling. I've been really happy with it. I did remove the rear paracord and attach it directly to the CTR stock, and left the front paracord around the front of the rail.

Search "Proctor sling" on YouTube and you can see some videos.

His sling isn't anything amazing, and you can essentially make any simple tri-glide adjustable sling fit like his, but I just think the 2 point makes a lot more sense for overall versatility.

I just bought this for a budget M4 style build.
https://www.amazon.com/Best-Rifle-Slings-FAST-LOOP-GUARANTEED/dp/B00JK1XW3W

The quality is really great, and I'd say it's more robust than the Proctor sling, but I don't find it to be smoothly adjustable using a standard M4 front sling mount because it binds on the handguard.
So I ordered some plastic D-Rings (just like the Proctor sling) and am hoping that solves my problem. They'll come tomorrow and I'll attach the front using paracord.

u/PulpHero · 4 pointsr/Military

A miniature sewing kit. When you’re running missions outside, clothes tend to get ripped, and with only limited numbers, life can get rough. A sewing kit helps.
Spirarcha chili sauce. If your soldier likes spicy foods, send them this. It’s spicy, it has flavor, and it will last them a few months.

Socks and underwear. Send them hiking socks and replacement pairs of underwear. Clothes tend to get gross and if they don’t have laundry, sometimes it is for the best to toss out old underclothes and wear new ones.

Beef jerky.

Trail mix of various types.

Great ideas for one-time gifts. These range from relatively cheap, to pricy and are a great surprise to a soldier stationed anywhere. I’ve included links to the products to give you an idea of what they look like, though don’t take those links as the only/cheapest place to find them:

Adjustable two-point sling. On base they have to carry around a weapon everywhere, and on mission they’ll be going some serious distance with it in their hands. If they are still using an Army-issue plain sling life is going to get a bit annoying. An adjustable two-point sling makes things more convenient and lets them ready a weapon to fire without an awkward movement on a mission. Ignore this if they are using a machine-gun, because those use heavy duty slings. Various companies make these, I prefer the VTAC, but they are all similar in make.

Surefire Earplugs. On mission, soldiers are supposed to wear earplugs, but many don’t because its uncomfortable and often all they are issued are cheap low qualifty plugs. Surefire earplugs conform to the shape of the ear and they are designed to allow someone to still be able to hear conversation level noise while protecting from high level noise. These are great.

Head-Loc helmet straps. One of the greatest pains is a helmet that won’t stay secure. The Head-Loc straps stay tighter and make the helmet so comfortable that you forget you’re wearing it.

PMAGs. Magpul plastic magazines, or PMAGs are high quality replacements for metal GI magazines. Army issued metal magazines are often used for years past the date that they should be retired and they are prone to feeding issues (I won’t get into the details) and PMAGs fix many of those issues and give a soldier more confidence in their equipment. A combat load is 7 magazines, so don’t feel the need to buy more than that, and even one or two PMAGs is greatly appreciated. Ignore if they are using a machinegun.

Head-lamp. Walking around an outpost at night is tricky and Afghanistan can get dark, a head-lamp is a great help to keep your soldier from stubbing their toe or walking into barbed wire. Get only with some kind of red or blue light filter.

Mechanix gloves. Soldiers need to wear gloves on mission and they tend to get torn up, a replacement pair of mechanixs gloves is a good choice.

u/ninjagowoo · 3 pointsr/fujix

> I've heard a few reports of the metal rings supplied wearing through the lugs eventually. Is that a genuine issue?

So Fuji lugs are actually mostly made of a very soft metal, so to compensate for that they put in a sleeve inside the lug that is made of much more durable material. A while back, there was a 'tip' for peak design users to push that sleeve out so that the peak design anchors can fit through the lug. This is the only reported case of lug wear I've seen for newer bodies.

> Does anyone have any recommendations for quick(ish) release camera straps that don't use metal rings (other than peak design)?

There are some cheap alternatives that use plastic buckles (like this: https://www.amazon.com/OP-TECH-USA-Utility-Adjust/dp/B01C5TE1NA), but I fear the buckles are more likely to wear than the peak design straps. You might consider looking at the blackrapid strap (there are knockoffs too). Instead of the lugs, they attach to the tripod mount... so may offer you some increased flexibility. It's also pretty quick to attach/remove but you have to make sure you do so securely.


> I've started looking at mini karabiner type clips to see if I can rig something up myself but need to find decent, strong cord to attach to the lugs themselves.

You're probably going to want to look for what is called "accessory cord" in the rock climbing world. You can find different diameters/colors and they are all rated by the amount of weight they can handle. You can buy custom lengths in most outdoor shops that sell climbing gear. In the US, REI is your best bet. You can also find precut lengths on amazon. I think your challenge with this approach will be finding the right carabiner... large/strong enough to handle the camera weight, but small enough to be unobtrusive and not scratch up your camera body. Do report back if you find anything though =]

u/radmike1848 · 1 pointr/Shotguns

I LOVE my old A5. It's a Japanese manufacture, because I'll duck hunt and the Belgian models can't take steel shot. It's my bird gun and I've taken countless dove, pheasant, duck and chukkar with it. I do have a fantastic sling though that I use bc it is a bit heavy and this sling takes care of all that. I like feeling a little old school on opening day of dove season and this gun is perfect for that!

Here's that sling too. I'd tell any wingshooter to pick up one of these though, they're awesome

u/TheMorningDeuce · 1 pointr/ar15

I've been perfectly satisfied with my Condor speedy two-point sling. It's nothing fancy, but it's only $25ish on Amazon and seems to be pretty good quality. Plus, I really like the quick-adjustment tab.

u/prey1337 · 2 pointsr/guns

I just bought a Kelty Tactical Sling pack from amazon today for this very purpose. I'm hoping it works well. I bought the pistol holster and dual mag holster inserts that were recommended on there also.

It's supposed to lay across your chest, strap on back, so if you get knocked off it will go with you. Then you just unzip with your weak hand and draw with your strong.

That's the idea anyway. Hope that helps some.

EDIT: Link for the bag, link for the magazine insert, and the link for the holster insert.

u/Dampwaffles1 · 3 pointsr/guns

The Magpul MS1 sling with this attachment on the right hand side of the buttstock and this attachment on the forward sling loop in front of the handguard. If you want to use cheaper attachment alternatives then that's fine. I found this sling setup to be the best and I've tried lots.

u/throwawayifyoureugly · 2 pointsr/ar15

Check youtube for advice videos on AR slings, and you'll realize the impracticality of attaching a single-point at the stock. Single points usually attach at the end plate or lower receiver (if it has a QD point) for many reasons, one of which being reachability.

I would also recommend a two-point sling. There are many options out there, but being a minimalist/cheapo I went with the Proctor Sling. Includes attachment hardware, is easy to use, and is adjustable.

If you are deadset on that paracord sling, you will need to purchase QD hardware to enable attachment. Search for QD sling swivels.

But for the same price as that etsy sling and additional hardware, there are so many more adjustable, efficient slings. Check out the Stupid Simple Slings as another source.

u/lunacite · 2 pointsr/ar15

I have an ACS-L and really like it. It comes with QD mounts, but if you want to use a clip-on like the MS3 you can get something like this for the 2 point.

For a single point sling I like the way it rests with the ASAP plate rather than attaching to the stock.

u/nagewaza · 2 pointsr/ar15

All the recommended slings should do the job fine. I also enjoy the Magpul MS1 $33 because I can easy adjust it to take cuff stabilized shots. If you've never experienced the stability you can get from your circulation getting cut off, than I'd recommend you try it out lol

u/SadeLoveDeluxe · 5 pointsr/GunPorn

Beautiful gun, but the hand stop and tied sling look difficult. Have you considering moving the hand stop up and using a QD swivel mount directly into the hand guard? Easy to detach. Magpul QD Quick-Disconnect Sling Swivel https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00HKBSQ26/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_yR0KDb1XFKQQP

u/MoneyKeyPennyKiss · 0 pointsr/1022

USGI sling can be found here.

If you choose to buy elsewhere, be sure to buy cotton, not nylon. Nylon has a tendency to slip, especially in the loop configuration you'll learn at Appleseed.

You'll also need sling swivels and sling studs. You can get them as a set here.

Tip for installing the studs on your synthetic stock: Start with a small drill bit about 1/2 half the size of the screw on the stud. Pre-drill holes in the stock. Insert a nail through the sling stud and twist it into the stock until the holes are perpendicular to the bore.

You're all set. Good luck and happy shooting.

u/Crow486 · 3 pointsr/ar15

I've pretty much got the same setup, the stupid $14 QD sling adapter for that stock is nice with an mlok QD sling adapter. That or a QD buffer plate to use with a QD sling. Comes off in one second and stays low profile. This sling is a $13 copy of the magpul ms1, feel free to spend the $50 if you like. It quick adjusts to you can sling it on and tighten it up with one hand while wearing it.

u/heylookapinkgiraffe · 3 pointsr/M1Rifles

Thanks! I got the sling off Amazon, a repro manufactured in India by the listing info.

This being my first M1, I had a bit of a rocky start earlier today, firing 128 rounds of surplus Austrian 7.62 NATO. I'll chalk up most of them to user error as I was learning my way around the gun, buuuuut:

  • Had a few issues with clips not feeding properly. I'll chalk this up to mostly me learning how to feed the clips and the general finickiness of the M1.
  • About 60 or so rounds in, the front sight fell off. Range gunsmith came in to look at it, determined it was probably the oil heating up and loosening the sight, so we fixed it on the spot.
  • Around 90-100 rounds, had a failure to feed and the bolt actually got jammed up. Gunsmith came back with a rubber mallet and freed it up.

    Other than that though, it sent rounds downrange when it wasn't being a dick about the clips. I'm still relatively new to shooting so I was getting horrible groups (albeit still hitting the target), but the other shooters at the range were able to get good ones at 20, 25 yards (I only have access to a 50 yard indoor range here in NJ). Recoils like a son-of-a-bitch, but I guess that's part of the charm.

I really like these as a budget alternative to the VTAC quick-adjust sling. $20 all day long, great construction (tubular nylon instead of flat straps), and if you don't want to use the quick-adjust loop, you don't have to.

Add these if you have standard swivel studs or these if you have QD mounts - both are under $10.

Know of any USGI style slings that come with "modern" hardware? I'm looking around, and I like the cheap cost and functionality of the basic USGI sling, but I'd have to replace the clips with QD points, which are what I want to use. I can't tell if something like this cheap magpul knockoff would work as a loop, but it comes with the hardware I need.

Any ideas?

> good sling makers

Slings are one of those things that you can by cheap. You don't need a $60+ gun sling. The most important thing is that it's wide enough to distribute the weight of your rifle without killing your shoulders.

I usually just buy this condor sling as my 2-point sling. Personally, I really like the speed adjustable 2-pointers, but YMMV.

Generally, I only use my slings when I'm throwing my rifle over my shoulder and won't be using it for a while. In most competitions slings just get in the way, and you don't need a sling for home defense. Slings are just one of those things that's made for hunters and soldiers who spend the whole day hauling around their rifle and using it very little. Single-point slings are a bit different, those have applications in a military context, but you don't generally need one.

  • Also, I bought 1LB of powder from I922sParCir's stockpile to get me started in reloading .357 magnum.

  • Amazon will be delivering my Adventure First Aid 2.0 kit today.

  • Amazon delivered yesterday 100ft of paracord and 2 sets of Rifle sling swivel sets for a couple of my rifles. I'm getting ready for an appleseed shoot that my son and I will be attending.
u/Ihistal · 3 pointsr/ar15

I've been looking at this one. It's not quite as tacticool as the $50-70 slings, but you can use whatever attachment options you want (quick disconnects, HK clips, laundry pins), has the ability for fast length adjustment with a large thumb loop, and has quality tube webbing so it doesn't dig into your neck. For the price, it seems tough to beat.

I was in the same boat a couple of years ago. The only thing that I added beyond more mags was a two-point sling. I purchased this one off of amazon for $20 and it's well built and has served me well.

I didn't go too crazy on accessories and spent more money on ammo and range time.

Gotta get my AR-15 ready for an Appleseed (first ever) and I need a sling. I've got a VLTOR Sight Tower and a Magpul CTR stock. Can I just get 2 of these QD sling swivels and maybe a Magpul sling? I'm not sure how the sling is used for support (one of the reasons I'm going to an Appleseed) so I'm not sure if this setup would work.

u/Bloombergtoadie · 2 pointsr/guns

Well the sling will come with qd points. A two point sling will have two qd mounts. The stock has one qd, and then the little mlok to qd. So if u buy this and mount it on an mlok slot on the handrail, then buy a sling that says it is a qd (quick disconnect) sling it will come with the mounts. Like this sling is a 2 point so it comes with two qd points. And then this is the magpul afg .

u/voicesinmyhand · 1 pointr/ZombieSurvivalTactics

Given the extreme unreliability of all rimfire ammo, it is stupid to trust your life on it.

Also, .22LR has trouble penetrating the ribcage of elderly US presidents (Reagan, specifically), so what chance does it really have with reliably stopping zombies when it does manage to avoid FTF/FTE?

Seriously. Buy several ARs and stockpile .223 and/or 5.56. Get Elzettas for the ARs. Put flashlights with tailswitches in the Elzettas. Buy slings. Ensure the flashlights run on Panasonic 18650 batteries as those are interchangeable with dual CR123 batteries, but have the added option of reliable recharging. If you plan your shopping carefully, you will probably get each weapon completed for less than $550.

If you run low on time for the sling and need to get it ASAP, this is what I used for my Appleseed this weekend and it worked great: LINK

A better and more realistic sling would be this one. https://www.amazon.com/AmmoGarand-Garand-Point-Rifle-Sling/dp/B01AX1H53K
I have one on my m16a2 commando.

There “is” a kit you can buy to add QD mount to the front, and the tailhook has a QD in the rear (but attaching a sling to end of the folding brace is silly from a weight perspective on a 2 point sling, But the easier answer is, you don’t really need to. A QD mount isn’t really any faster than just a regular ol’ metal hook style mount imo.

Not gonna beat the chineesium at 12 bucks for what is just a fabric belt with simple metal fasteners.

Need to get you a 1907 sling, like this one.

Buy something like a UTG heavy duty sling swivel from Amazon:

I'm not sure where people get their HK slings, but Zenith usually provides one with their Z-5RS/Z-5Ps. PTR has a 1 point sling with theirs.

I personally use a 1 point or just carry it from bag to indoor range counter. Here's James from Zenith Firearms explaining 2 point: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r7uDMVkirXM

I have a couple condor slings: https://www.amazon.com/Condor-Speedy-Point-Sling-Black/dp/B007IWZNDM/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1473950349&sr=8-2&keywords=condor+sling

They are cheap, secure, and much slimmer than a lot of the more expensive padded tactical slings.

I think the extra Sd cards is outdated advice. I would shop around for the max storage that works with your camera. a 32gb card will hold like 1700 pictures in raw. For me thats more than enough. I took 1100 pictures for 5 days at WDW. maybe just a spare in your room.
Also you might try a sling instead of a bag https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01C5TE1NA/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o07_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

but if you are in the market for a new bag https://www.amazon.com/Lowepro-Passport-Sling-III-Protective/dp/B00J8V1INU/ref=sr_1_12?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1498703495&sr=1-12&keywords=sling+camera+bag

I've taken both on roller coasters.

u/the_duck17 · 2 pointsr/1022

Either will do. Yes, get an adjustment tool, they're just handy to have regardless but someone will most likely have one to lend you. For a sling, I got this one.

u/reyfufu · 2 pointsr/gundeals

This guy here is what I used, and it's what they teach. $17 on Amazon. There are cheaper ones around, but they are of varying quality.

u/mtldude1967 · 2 pointsr/canadaguns

QD sling swivel, it's a pushbutton release, you can get it anywhere.

You can even buy one "pre-upgraded"!

u/Sandcracka- · 1 pointr/ValveIndex

I prefer a 2 point sling so I got this one.

u/NoctePhobos · 3 pointsr/guns

It’s the chocolate raptor, adjustable height, not fixed.

Sling is here. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B004G02ULC was kind of dry so I rubbed hand lotion into it for a while. Skin is skin, I guess.

u/ProjectD13X · 1 pointr/ar15

What would you make of this QD swivel for the CTR? Is the only difference between the CTR and the SRT storage options?

u/TheCafeRacer · 2 pointsr/ar15

I use a Magpul 2-point MS1 with one side through the A2 and one side looped through the MOE stock like this.

u/someomega · 2 pointsr/ar15

I use either a Magpul MS4, GI sling, or a US 1907 sling on my AR rifles. Just change out the connectors for what you need for your rifle if you don't have the standard connection points.

u/ahorribleidea · 1 pointr/guns

I put those exact mounts on my 10/22 a couple months ago for a 1 1/4" USGI sling. Works perfectly, but I did need to put the gun in my drill press to make holes for the mounts.

u/ushutuppicard · 12 pointsr/gundeals

I'm very much a fan of this sling
from amazon which can be a 1pt or 2pt sling, and is this price 24/7 on fde, od and black. no pink though. i havent drug it through the dirt, or gone into combat with it, so i cant say it will hold up to that, but the 2 i have have held up for range trips and hunting for a couple years.

Mini-14 is junk, don't buy.

Buy him this rifle.

Buy him this sling.

Send him to this event, and buy a ticket for yourself while you're at it.

The Sporter doesn't have a barrel band, and will probably be slightly more accurate. But, you'll want to install Tech Sights if he wants to seriously learn how to shoot.

The PC Carbine is a fine gun, but a 10-year-old should learn on a 10/22 so they can shoot a high volume of rounds for cheap without having to learn about managing recoil yet. Everything he, or you, learns on the 10/22 will transfer to the PC Carbine.
