I'm not interested in how or where a weapon is made, as long as it does the job it needs to do and I know how to use it.
As long as it fires ammunition and you've got lots of it, that's all you should be concerned about.

Rix86, how's the progress going on the P80s you've been doing?

Subject is of great interest, I'm planning on doing more at some point.

Me, I cleaned my P80 (PF9C) and my G17. Woo hooà

Hard trigger pull, inconsistent weight, inconsistent reset.
He had the rear half of the striker guide installed backwards/not installed.

I've got the three pistols together and I don't know how many 80% ARs milled and together and a few more milled.
I think it's 3 now but I'd have to look

The other 2 pistols will probably have to wait a while. I'm going to finish the a2 type build for the wife and then that's probably going to be the last gun I build for a while.

Few days ago took the wife out to go shoot her newly built M16A2 clone. Wasn't sure she was going to like it but she effing loves it and despite her being unsure at first if she would be able to hit the steel at 300 yds (I had no doubt, she has a great marksmanship coach!) she was on target 2nd round in and slaughtered it for about 3 mags. She had a blast going between the 100 yd steel and 300 yd steel.

"To ban guns because criminals use them is to tell the innocent and law-abiding that their rights and liberties depend not on their own conduct, but on the conduct of the guilty and the lawless, and that the law will permit them to have only such rights and liberties as the lawless will allow...

For society does not control crime, ever, by forcing the law-abiding to accommodate themselves to the expected behavior of criminals. Society controls crime by forcing the criminals to accommodate themselves to the expected behavior of the law-abiding." - Jeff Snyder

Personal weapons are what raised mankind out of the mud, and the rifle is the queen of personal weapons. The possession of a good rifle, as well as the skill to use it well, truly makes a man the monarch of all he surveys. It realizes the ancient dream of the Jovian thunderbolt, and as such it is the embodiment of personal power. For this reason it exercises a curious influence over the minds of most men, and in its best examples it constitutes an object of affection unmatched by any other inanimate object.

Thumbs up for the Vortex VIP Warranty Service. I have a Vortex Venom that was not properly adjusting for elevation.
- Mailed to Vortex this Tuesday via USPS Priority Mail.
- Last night I received an email from Vortex indicating receipt.
- This morning received a phone call that my red dot had already been evaluated and repaired along with a description of what was wrong
- Vortex getting the item into return mail today

I'm amazed at the speed and efficiency of this particular warranty return. Was expecting turnaround to require several weeks. So to say I'm a happy camper is an understatement :bigsmile:
