Jesse C: The rifle on top is the one I made my wife, today was our first day shooting it! Talk about a rifle that shoots smooth as butter!  (The rifle is an Anderson Mfg Lower with a PSA upper. The furniture is 1960's surplus A1, a 20" pencil style barrel with a Bushmaster Threaded Izzy Muzzle Brake and A1 sight base. The grip is a Hogue Over-molded and the trigger is a Spikes Tactical Battle Trigger.)

Roger T, Burlington, NC:  Hello,  I can't remember the exact episode, but a while back you guys had a listener write in talking about how their AR buffer is getting chewed up. A lot of folks assume it's the pin that retains the buffer that chews up the buffer, however if you pay close attention while attaching the upper and lower receiver you will see that the bolt carrier group pushes the buffer back in the tube, also the bolt carrier has a keyway cut for clearance of that buffer retaining pin. In one of my ar's and a small handful of M16's I've seen this chewed up buffer problem. Unless you lower is out of spec the buffer retaining pin is only used to keep the buffer in place during assembly/disassembly of the rifle. Every time I've encountered this problem it's been a burr left on the back of the bolt carrier keyway during the machining process, I've simply deburred  that area, then replaced the buffer and carried on without issue.  I'm not saying this is that listeners problem, but it's somewhere to look.

I'm a huge fan of the show, and loved the Marine Christmas poem.

M Chan: Hey guys:

Great show this week. I'm just getting into 3 gun and found the interview to be very helpful. I am writing to see if you would be willing to do a show on muzzle brakes. There are so many options at a wide range of prices and it's hard to see distinguish the wheat from the chaff.

Thanks.

Arturo:  Hi Reed, While at shot show I hope you have time to checkout the new G2 line of .308 AR rifles from DPMS. It looks to be a really great evolution of the AR10 style rifle.

Brownells Item of the Week: PWS Triad Flash Suppressor

Shop for AR-15 parts at Brownells. Go to: ar15podcast.com/parts

Tip of the Week:

Try out different kinds of slings. One/Two-point, QD/latch/straps, adjustable/fixed. There’s some very nifty little gadgets that guys like PWS make to help give you more options for attaching your AR to your body. Does your sling let you transition to a sidearm, is it easy to walk around with the rifle hanging, are you muzzling yourself or others by manipulating the sling? Take time to work with your sling and a dry AR to test all the different uses you can come up with.

Listener Feedback:

Mike R: Great podcast on suppressors - Thought I would comment on my two most overlooked details - length and weight. I was a novice and was not able to test any suppressors. I purchased a Gemtech HVT 7.62 can. I really like the product, their service, and support. I am very happy with the performance of the suppressor. I too shoot it on my 308 caliber guns, and sub caliber firearms as well.

The length and weight of the suppressor comes into play when moving with the gun, such as hunting and competition. I for one wish I has spent the few extra dollars on a titanium suppressor, as they are a considerable weight savings, in some cases half the weight. The length adds to a very unbalanced feel of the firearm when in the field as well, in my experience. That coupled with the weight lead me to cut my .243 hunting rifle barrel to 16" so with the suppressor it's not so unwieldy

I think all shooters of rifles should start out with a suppressor. I started my son on his .243 with the Gemtec. It reduces recoil, and of course the sound. The added bonus of hoping for no hearing loss for my son (I have some documented loss already) was one of my main selling points on the purchase.

I'm currently looking for a short, titanium can just for hunting.

Also, you addressed some points of accuracy but not point of impact shift. I experience some significant point of impact changes with the can on the firearm, versus it off. So much that I have to sight in with the can, and make sure I shoot with it on. In some rifles the POI change is 6" at 100 yds. I have found no real accuracy differences, just POI shift.

Keep up the great show,

Frankie in Rock Hill: Reed and JW - Just wanted you guys to know that the Silencer podcast was just awesome. It really cleared some things up for me and I like the thought of one can for multiple guns. I don't like paying two hundred dollars for a tax stamp but I dislike the thought of being locked up even more.

I am on my first "build" thanks to your podcast. It's not really a build as I bought a Palmetto Complete Upper and Completed Magpul Lower. In case new listeners want to know l have less than five hundred dollars in the complete build. But I am an AR Owner!

I am curious if you guys have any thoughts on the poly receivers from New Frontier? I also would like to second Arturo's request about some brand comparisons and what does more money get me? Is it like buying a store brand vs. name brand and they all come off the same assembly line? I know FN is making most (maybe all?) of Palmetto's barrels.. do you know who makes their receivers?

Please enter me in the Otis give-a-way so I can keep my new AR Clean.

Thanks
