Looks like the BATFE updated their website, and in the process didn't forward any of the links from their old content to the new URL format, bad web development!
But I digress.
I wanted to take this as an opportunity to update my links, as well as expand on some of the topics discussed in my earlier post about the legalities of building your own firearms. Namely, can you sell a home built firearm without a serial number?
There are a few 922(r) compliance worksheets floating around on the internet, most are really good but quite a few are dated, not functional, and as I discovered when I started my Galil build, inaccurate. I wanted to provide a more up to date resource, and here it is!
Trigger slap is a minor, yet common problem shooters of the AKM pattern rifle may experience. This post will get into detail about what trigger slap is, and the specific point during cycling that it happens. I've also provided instructions on how to fix it, as well as discussing a few myths circulating online about trigger slap.
In trying to find reviews of GoPro mounts for rifles, I was disappointed that nothing I found online seemed to talk about how to mount them, or if it did, it didn't show any example photos of what the mount looked like, and what the images looked like when mounted.

So I wanted to find a GoPro mount that would fit nicely on my rifles. When looking for examples or reviews online, I didn't find much that showed how they attached or what the images would look like. So I decided to try a couple and post the results. Enter the contenders:
Now that I've got my M16A1 clone put together from the kit and my 80% lower, and the rear sight fixed, its time to take it to the range and get it sighted in. In order to do that I'll have to zero the sights. Finding an old copy of Army STP 21-1-SMCT from 1987 proved to be a bit difficult, so I've transcribed a copy here for future reference.
