Listener Feedback

Craig Valentine - Why do companies continue to produce complete rifles that lack ambi controls, or at the very least ambi safeties?
Brad Gatlin - What bcg is best? Phosphate, nickel boron or nickel teflon?

Jim Rauls - I reload a lot of handgun ammo that is powder coated lead. I've had very good results. What do you think about Using this type of bullet for reloading 223. My goal would be to make up a subsonic load with the powder coated bullets. Thanks , love the show.

Short-barreled rifle (SBR) is a legal designation in the United States, referring to a shoulder-fired, rifled firearm, made from a rifle, with a barrel length of less than 16 in (41 cm) or overall length of less than 26 in (66 cm). In the United States, an SBR is an item regulated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE) as a Title II weapon. In the absence of local laws prohibiting ownership, American civilians may own an SBR provided it is registered with the BATFE, and a $200 tax is paid prior to taking possession of or creating the firearm.

The regulation of short-barreled rifles was the result of the National Firearms Act of 1934 which also imposed restrictions on short barreled shotguns, silencers and machine guns.

When an individual wishes to build a short-barreled rifle, he or she must beforehand submit a completed BATFE Form 1
 

Feed Back -

DW Taylor - Since Reed is such a fanatic on Iron Sights, I had to throw him a bone!  I'm building a black rifle chambered for the 6.5 Grendel. This will be used with a magnified optic, but I also want backup iron sights. 20 inch barrel, low profile gas block, rifle length. I want to put a free floating handguard on it, probably either Brigand Arms carbon fiber or similar style.

I'm wondering how the accuracy of iron sights on a free floating handguard is compared to sights mounted directly to the barrel.

Also, what buffer weight should be used with this? I have a PSA Magpul MOE mil-spec lower build kit that I'm using, but should I use a heavier buffer? Should the buffer spring be changed as well? What's the downside of using mil spec buffers with a heavier round?

Thanks again for a very informative and enjoyable show.  I'm still working on my lowers collection, but do I really need 83?  So far I am only at 18% of that target.

Michael M. - Show 197 Barrel Temp, Listening to the show a comment was made that after firing 300+ rounds in three minutes that the modified barrel temp was 207 degrees and that a conventional barrel would be 1500 degrees kelvin. 207 kelvin is about 100 degrees below zero (-100 F). Just wondering if you were implying 207 Celsius (500 ish kelvin). Just curious as even reducing the temp by half is impressive.

David L. - Evening Gentlemen, when ya'll were reviewing Shot Show and speaking of a target viewing system not using a spotting scope.
I think Anthony mentioned it. Also saying that a techie kind of guy could make one himself.

Remember that? Could you point me in the right direction to do something like that? I don't like spotting scopes and find it hard to spot 5.56 holes 300 yds or further downrange.

Thanks Guys. Enjoy the Podcast and I am learning, not to my Gunsmith Son's level yet, but ya'll are my tutors and bringing my knowledge level up behind his back.

Main Topic:

Cerakote

  2. What is Cerakote

  3. The process of becoming a RTT Certified Cerakote Applicator

  4. The benefits of Cerakote over other products.

  5. Durability

  7. Cost for a standard AR-15?

  8. Craziest Job Request to date

Question for Shop Owners.

What will be the biggest difference in the industry that we will see in one year?

Feedback:

Jenz Yoder - Any reason to Cerakote besides the cool factor? I like the cool factor but a wonder if it protects my gun better than just keeping it cleaned and oiled. I guess camo might be nice for hunting if you can hunt with an Ar.
 

Tom Gonzalez - Ask him if they can add texture in the Cerakote application. Also is there a technique that can be used to repair scratches and abrasions to the Cerakote coating.

Chris Allen - Which components are considered off limits or not recommended to cerakote?

John Allen - Is cerakote the proper coating if I want to cover my Hi-Point in hundred dollar bills?

Tyler Dice - How come cerakote doesn't take to well to layering?

Dean Arthur - How would one do-it-themselves?
