I'd just get the trigger and sear myself. Midway has the sear for $28.80 and the trigger for $35.10 (black) or $45.00 (silver).

If you want a better fitting bushing, Clark Custom is making the...

I certainly don't have any definitive answer, but I saw a YouTube video that probably showed part of the reason. The video showed the slow motion path of a 22lr bullet as it approached and hit the...

If you have an older production MKIV that used a 2-hole firing pin, you should replace it with a new 1-hole firing pin. The 2-hole design is flawed and is prone to breaking.

CLB is has the right idea with the trigger spring.

First, I assume you put the spring in that came with the kit. That spring is lighter than the Ruger spring, and it's also not reliable in the...

Lately, I find myself extremely irritated by people who moved here and use terms that they think make themselves seem current and relevant.

I don't have a Henry stock, so maybe one of the other guys knows how the orange insert is attached.

It's nice you found a way to take advantage of the extra space in the Henry stock. My Charter Arms stock doesn't have that extra space.

But I still made an extended charging handle for days I do a...

Some interesting mods.

That's one of the things I love about the AR-7. The design is so simple, it's easy to modify or even fabricate parts if no replacements were available. To me, that's...

I doubt it's a mag issue.

I don't have a VQ bolt, so this is just a guess. If the lower front edge of the part of the bolt pushing the rounds forward is too squared off - it could snag the...

At the very least, it would make more sense to have midnight be 0 'oclock. Of course, you'd have to change the analog clock face to have 0/12 at the straight up position.

Try polishing the recoil guide rod, or better yet - replace with a Kidd.
