Thanks for joining us this week guys. For all of our listeners out there, this weeks is a topic themed show. So we will be getting down and dirt on the specs of AR15s. On the show we will be talking about TractionGrips, FIREClean, Geissele SD-3G and CIV Tactical Muzzlebreaks.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Main Segment 

Part I - Dustin’s History

  • When did Dustin get into firearms?
  • Where did you learn everything that you know now?
  • When, what, where and how did Dustin decide to start CIV Tactical?
  • Tell us about CIV TAC - what is the business mindset?
  • What do you consider your forte’?
  • Is there anything you currently do not do as far as gunsmithing goes that you are hoping to do in the future?
  • Why California? Run into any issues because you operate in California?

 

Part II - AR-15 Building/Gunsmithing

  • Beside's nsz85's upper, what was the worst build you have worked on? Either because it refused to operate or because it was joe-bobbed?
  • Considering that everyone makes mistakes, is there any words of wisdom to new or newer AR-15 builders out there that you can offer to save them from making some of the same mistakes? (for example - have you ever broken the dog ear off during a trigger guard roll pin installation?)
  • AeroShell 33MS - is it the end all to be all grease for barrel nuts and receiver extensions? Have you personally ever seen corrosion on an AR-15 due to improper grease application?
  • Headspace checking. Specifically on an AR-15, is it needed? Why or why not? What are some things to do to fix a headspace issue before sending a barrel or upper back to the manufacturer?
  • Explain different buffer weights and dwell time.
  • Touching on buffers - The system was designed to work with a carbine buffer, why so many different ones now? Thoughts on tungsten powder buffers such as the Spikes ST-T2
  • How does the gas system and barrel length affect how quick the rifle could potentially wear out? Is it true that a carbine gas system will be harder on internal parts than a mid-length gas system?

Feedback we’ve gotten from listeners!

On iTunes:

  • AussieRogue - This is a great podcast for the new person getting into firearms
  • Scorpionraces - (Being facetious) What started off as a shameless ripoff of the WeLikeShooting format has turned into an informative show that’s fun to listen to. (end being facetious) While HandgunNewbie may take a bit of ribbing from others, it’s his fault. He brings it on himself. He and his co-host Matt have great guests, good humor, and lots of info. Don’t miss this show!
  • Remington.h - This is one of my favorite podcast. I’m a little mad it took me so long to finally find the show and subscribe. The humor is great and gun talk is what makes it so great. I’d also like to add that I love 1911’s when you guys have Peter Palma on as a guest.
