    What's the cure time on that Duracote? There's minimal information on the website, but I get that it's a two-part epoxy in a can and it says no pre-heating or baking. Have you used it before? I'm just getting used to Alumahyde, but being a single part product, I've already figured out that some solvents will lift the coating if you let it soak too long.

    I’ve used this duracoat to spray on my cold steel knives quite sometime it seems to last couple of years for normal use camping and hunting. After 4 hrs it’s completely dry to the touch and take at least 3 week+ for the materials to get harden(cured)

    Can’t believe it. You mean if you sell guns that rust within days of purchase you’ll lose customers? As a groomsman we all pitched in for my cousins 870 and it’s a piece of crap. Once upon a time they were great... not so much anymore. It rusts like crazy. Doesn’t feel as solid as my father’s and was cheap as hell.

    Buds is great. Good prices fairly quick shipping. If they have what you need. Check Gunbroker.com to compare pricing but in general Buds is tough to beat. Pay with “check” and it’s even a little cheaper

    They had that fiasco about the R51 when they reintroduced it, too. All sorts of problems with the first round of production. If I remember right they basically had to recall ALL of them, fix the design problems, and send customers replacements.

    I haven’t heard very much good about any company that “the freedom group” has taken over (AAC, Marlin, etcetera) when compared to the original company.

    Not yet, too new...
    For a few years I have been trying to recover a 1911 Colt .45 that my Dad gave me and I lost track of it. When I got out of the Navy, I returned to my Island and could not take the gun with me, so I legally ( power of attorney ) let a friend keep it until I could get back to it. I lost track of the friend, and thus track of the gun whereabouts. It was a Blue ( bluing ), had white grips, it was an Air Force Commemorative Edition from the American Historical Foundation, and it had my Dad name engraved on the gun, Lt. E.T.C. ( full name reserved ). I have called everyone I could think, I have tried everything I think of, and have not come up with a way to track it back. I do not know the Ser. No. nor I have any records. If anyone has any idea of what to do or suggestions, it will be dearly appreciated, I really want to recover my Dads pistol and keep it until I die. It was identical to this one in the photo...

    Yeah. I love my 700, but I don't know if I'd buy another one from them today, with all of the QC issues they've been having.
    I had been thinking about picking up a 783 in .223 for a cheap plinking/varmint gun, but I'm more and more leaning towards and Axis or American as more and more bad news about Big Green keeps piling up.

    I already have an 11 in 30-06 (total overkill for varmint shooting, even with a lightweight round it'd demolish even a big coyote). I have been considering the Axis for the price point vs the 10, but it may be worth getting the 10 for the accutrigger.

    Now I'm tempted to buy something in a magnum caliber for getting out past 1k yards... but thats another rifle, scope and caliber of ammo i have to keep on hand. Probably should wait a little while and upgrade what ive got

    Yeah, and the Axis pops up on sale pretty regularly for around $275-300, same as the 783's. But, like I said, the 10 might end up being worth it for the Accutrigger.

    I love my axis, I bought the Axis II XP, came with a scope (bleh) and Accutrigger, worth every penny. Missed the sales though:annoyed:
