Feedback:

Chad - Are they making a stock for the Ruger PCC?

Mike - Thank them for all the support they give the shooting sports. I swear to God every 3 gun match I go to there are MagPul products in the swag bag or on the prize table.

Jarred - When are they going to make 7.62x39 “AR” mags?

Jesse - Remember when you invented the Pmag? That was awesome!

Curtis - M&P mags in the future?. Also would love some 223 AK mags but doubt there is enough market.

Craig - What stock would they recommend for an AR platform rifle that will be 50% hunting 50% bench shooting.

Brad - With the 224 valkyrie gaining in popularity do they plan on making a 6.8 based mag for standard mag well.

Nick - While I would love to ask when the next series of pistol mags is coming out. The better question is are they ever going to get in the complete firearm game again, they had some really interesting designs that would be neat to see them move on.

Chris - I see 9mm glock mags are on the way for my NFA C9, but is there a big enough market to make anything for the C5?

Feedback:

Chase J: I guess this is old news, but have you heard of RF85? Apparently Anderson rifles has a coating/metal treatment/voodoo enchantment that allows their rifle to function WITHOUT LUBRICATION. You clean the rifle with soap and water?!?!?!?
There's a video where they shoot 300 rounds through it, clean with dishwater, then shoot 4700 more rounds through it, clean it 'Anderson style' by tossing it in a creek, shake it off, and dump a 30 round mag. 5030 rounds.  Straight up Kentucky madness.
I've been listening to your podcast for about a year, just re listened to your 6 part build from scratch series. I understand everything now that I've familiarized myself with a Colt 6920, putting 150 rounds down range once or twice a month, cleaning after every other trip to the range just to familiarize myself with the parts. Came across this rf85 video while scouring the web for things ar related, the bug has me pretty bad, and my gf loves shooting the rifle as much as I do. However, I may reconsider building myself a new rifle, and pick up an OEM Anderson rifle I can customize.

But anyway, what are your thoughts on RF85, and if it's all that they say it is, why hasn't this revolutionized the industry? Who needs chrome nickel Teflon boron anything when there's rf85?

Who am I kidding, I'll still build one. I'm itchin. I'm kinda waiting for Faxon to produce 6.5 Grendel barrels and bolts. Every time I hear (nick?nate?) talk about their engineering I feel like Jesse Pinkman (YEAH!!! Science Bitch!!!)
Reed, you have the same effect. You're the Walter White to my black rifle disease. I know JD knows what I'm talkin’ about.

Thanks for the show. I'll keep listening and using affiliate links. Chiau

Sean: In California... would it work for people to acquire a 458 socom AR... that way they can keep all their 30 round magazines? (i think it'll hold what... 9 or 10? ) of course you'd have to have some decoy 10 orders... (not sure since they can't be "detachable"... just a thought... always thinking…

Brandon: Listening to Josh Waldron on some of the pre-election discussions, I was kind of shocked to hear some details about the age of the NRA lobby in Washington, and I felt like he appropriately nailed exactly what I've felt about the NRA for years. I've long felt the NRA is far too focused on a glory days image of a father and son hunting deer, and more or less ignores the modern younger shooter and their needs and wants. I received a renewal request in the mail with a questionnaire that was tailor made to fire up my aging relatives with phrases such as "those washington politicians", but it did little to move my needle as a Gen Y/Millennial modern sportsman.

I would be interested to hear a guest from the NRA on your show, ideally to discuss their stances and progress on more modern issues like NFA restrictions, and the protection of AR's and other semi auto rifle platforms for any use (not just hunting).

Craig: Are those 83 lowers you have 80% completed or are they 100% finished requiring a 4473 form filled out? If they're all 100% finished lower"s; has the ATF questioned why you have so many lowers? Personally, I would not want the ATF's attention.

This replaces standard A2 style sight posts in any typical AR-15 type fixed or folding sight. The Blitzkrieg Components AR-15 Spike Front Sight Post for AR-15 sights provides superior sighting with a sharp aiming point and a bold, fast sight picture. The sharp aiming point enables precise aiming and high confidence on difficult shots. The bold, contrasting Luminescent Green Stripe gives the shooter an eye catching sight picture that excels in both bright-light and low-light environments and against all types of backgrounds

Feedback:

Kris Peacock:  My wife foolishly purchased me an iPod for Christmas. Within a couple of days, I discovered the FRN and I've now completed an 80% lower build in 300AAC. It's certainly not my dream gun, but with about 500 rounds through it, I have had only 1 misfire using strictly reloaded ammo with brass that I cut down and sized. I've jumped in with both feet and I'm quite happy with my new hobby. Thanks for a great podcast and such complete coverage of the AR platform. Without this podcast, I would not have had the confidence to buy a bunch of parts and start building what I lovingly refer to as my "sport utility rifle."

Craig:  What is the difference between New Frontier Armory 9mm Ar15 carbine verses Stag Arms 9mm AR15 carbine? I presume these shot standard 9mm pistol rounds?

Feedback:

ericfine50:  listened this morning - some excellent ideas and comments. I was surprised that no one suggested using an AR with a 14.5 barrel and the Law Tactical AR Folding Stock Adapter. That would reduce the overall length when concealed.

I agree that you should go with an AR that is not budget, because you want it to work when you need it. Assuming that you are needing to get your Trunk/Truck gun because it is no longer safe to be without it.

I would also look to add a Chest Rig (Like the HSP D3CR), Soft Body Armor, and even a Team Wendy Helmet. Extra magazines for your AR, Pistol, and what about a fix blade knife?

JoshBurgess:  How you guys were talking about the truck gun, I'm not sure if I just missed it or you weren’t talking about how long should you keep ammo before changing it out.

Feedback:

Dan V: I'm sending a pic of my 1st ar and 1st ar build.  I kept it basic...but I'm prouder than heck of myself for doing it all from scratch and no experience with guns.  It's an anderson lower and a Surplus Ammo rifle kit...SAA is from the seattle area.  Anyway, a buddy of mine I teach with and I bought identical kits and with a youtube video...built our own ars.  Very fun and very cool.  The scope is off of an old mosin kit I bought, but it might as well be a schmitt and bender to me.  Now that I'm acclimated to builds, I will continue to do more.  I think an ar 10 would be fun.  How about a podcast with build info particular to those building their first ar 10?  The pics will be on facebook because i don’t know how to attach them here.

Michael C: Hey Reed, just listened to you on Handgun Radio podcast, which is one of my favorites. I live in Grand Prairie, and own a P938 and P250, both of which I love. The P938 is my daily carry gun. If you want to shoot these things, just let me know - I can meet you somewhere and turn you loose with them (and anything else I have - STI 1911, Walther PPX, Firestar 45, FN HP, S&W SD9 VE, etc).

joelfrederick:  Great Job!   The intro is good, the podcast audio quality is noticeably improved.

Austin L: First off let me say I’m a huge fan of the show and really appreciate the content you provide. I have used a number of the pointers you gave during my first build a couple months ago, which I posted and tagged you in on Instagram under my lightweight 5.5 pound AR. But now I am looking at 3 more builds, one in the works and 2 in planning. The current one in progress is a DPMS pattern AR-10 in 308, 16 in barrel and trying to be light and very accurate, possibly adding a 6.5 upper to to it later on. The next 2 are a 6.5 Grendel and a heavy hitter such as 450 bushmaster or 458 socom but would like your input on the best route to go a far as accuracy, parts availability and cost for the Grendel and the heavier build. As well if would be great to get advice on what I can do to improve accuracy other than buying the most expensive parts or an already build gun.

In conclusion I would like to request you contact Steve Adelmann of Citizen Arms for an interview. I have bought a couple Ar’s from him, one in 7.62x39 and one in 5.56 and he is an absolute wizard when it comes to an accurate AR. The 7.62x39 groups well under ¾ inch at 100 yd and rings 14 inch steel out to 600 yd, and the 5.56 groups .40 inch at 100. All  of these are with factory loads, and none are the huge heavy contour guns which is why I would love to hear his input along with yours.

Thank you guys for a great show and please keep them coming

Chiforce MediaCatapult: Thanks for all the great info & interviews with Josh Waldron i have hearing loss from a lifetime of hunting..great show guys

Randall F: With the massive popularity of The Walking Dead, you would think that if they re-released the Colt Python, it would single-handedly rescue that company.

@dylan.h.cave: I’m attending a carbine training course this afternoon.  My double rifle case is packed tight with two rifles.  Two rifles that I cleaned the night before like a ritual.  This morning when I went to retrieve the case, I looked at the patch affixed there and I felt a swell of pride as it reminded me that I built both of the rifles inside.

Feedback:

Bob L:  Reed, Thanks for all you do in producing an amazing podcast (cast & crew included).  I have listened since the beginning.   I know there is an endless amount of subject matter for our black rifles, but thought I would pass this on.

 A friend of mine who is an aeronautical engineer called me one day and asked if I would research the merits of the big bore AR 15's, after all I am retired and have more time, right?   Specifically, he was interested in the 458 SOCOM vs. the 450 Bushmaster.  I personally had no interest in either until I dug in and started learning about the two.   I think the stories of their development are incredibly interesting and think that some interviews with their respective developers would make great shows.  Tim LeGendre the creator of the 450 Bushmaster (450 Professional) is actively posting on the 450bushmaster.net forum under the call of "wildcatter" and I believe Tony Rumore of Tromix was involved in the Socom development, he is also on the same blog under tonyrumore.   I believe both would be willing.  Additionally, I believe the interviews would be of value just due to their historical significance.

 Some aspects; if SAAMI spec'd, parent cartridge, bullet differences, ammo availability and cost, max effective range, required components for conversion, pro and cons of straight walled case and bottled necked cases as well as recent changes to Michigan and Ohio hunting laws.

 Another interview I would love to listen to would be Bill Alexander on the development of the 6.5 Grendel and the 50 Beowulf.

 Loved the Faxon segment! Keep up the good work, thanks again.

DW Taylor:  I recently got bitten by the black rifle bug. I discovered your podcast right after you closed registration for the latest give-a-way. Missed it by THAT much… (Per Maxwell Smart. Yes, I am old)

 I appreciate the humble approach you take to your audience. We are all newbies at one time in this field. I would have left more feedback, but I can only do that on my mobile devices through my Facebook log on, and I do not have a Facebook account (don’t want one either).

 6.5 Grendel

I have not heard you speak much of this in the AR configuration. Pros, Cons, thoughts?  I am thinking about building an upper that I can use for deer this fall. I have heard this is a good round for larger game. You talk a lot about the 300 Blackout. How do they compare? Are they similar, totally different purpose & intent?

 Thanks for the weekly show. I haven’t missed one since I started. I listen on Stitcher and often download so I can listen on the plane as I fly to work.

Chris South of Dallas: Just a couple comments on hearing protection.  I have both Peltor (early 90's version) and the Howard Leights (2013).  Both are good, the Peltor are heavier and take a 9 volt battery.  So a year ago I decided to try the Howard Leights as I was seeing a lot of them at the range and at classes.  They are lighter and are almost as effective as the Peltor.

Concerning the custom molded electronic ear plugs, I was not that interested until a few years ago when my hearing loss reached the level that it began to impact my ability to understand conversations.  Because of that, I am now looking at hearing aids.  Once you start looking at those prices, then the opportunity to add noise reduction to the hearing aid begins to make a lot of sense.  I am scheduled to have my hearing tested again soon and at that time will likely see about acquiring a set of Sport Ears.

Keep up the good work.

Kyle:  Hi Guys,

Thanks for all you do. Keep up the great work. In a past episode you mentioned about writing in with ideas for future giveaways so here it goes.

What about AR accessories? Maybe a high end optic like an ACOG, or a few Geissele triggers so there are multiple winners, or go with the "Reed Special" and give away a few sets of iron sights!

I would love to win an optic, trigger, etc. to put on a future build!

Thanks again
