Re: CZ Scorpion Pistol to SBR

I was under the impression that going NFA negated the 922r crap. When I researched threading a Beretta CX4 thats what I was told by the beretta forum. Yeah, that's wrong. Unless you're talking MGs, different animal there. An SBR is still a rifle and manufacturers must comply, including individuals.

Re: Here's a different over/under shotgun (or rifle)

I was skeptical until watching the video. It's gorgeous and so elegantly executed.

Look into what kind of insurance you need and premium cost, assuming you can get such insurance.

Re: Changes to NRA Basc pistol

A rare, but long overdue, course correction by NRA.

Think they'll ever tell us how bad it was number wise? :roll:

Re: CZ Scorpion Pistol to SBR

Took the Scorpion apart today so I could have the barrel sent out and rethreaded. Not much to it really. I would caution anyone taking theirs apart, the rear stock/button is under spring tension and will want to fly. Be gentle when prying the two flats apart and off the barrel trunnion. I could see ...

Re: CZ Scorpion Pistol to SBR

If the Switchbacks come back in stock, I'm going to grab one. 12.5" 308 sounds pretty interesting! I've got a 11.5 and a 7.5, both 556. Thought briefly about an SBS can't find any real reason I need one. However, I am giving serious consideration to a K version MPX SBR that's been flirting w/ m...

Re: CZ Scorpion Pistol to SBR

You must be climbing the walls with that stamp being so close to being issued. Ordered a couple of mags as well. Just got my shipping notice from Prepper. Which Yeti grip did you go with? I've looked at the Switchback with some interest. I'm torn about having the barrel cut down any more, but I do l...

Re: Remington 870 project help

You can do a lot, or a little, and turn a great gun like that into a self defense shotgun. You might consider a Remington factory 18" parkerized barrel. For sights, I like the XS Sight 'Big Dot' tritium sights you can install pretty easily right over the existing bead sight. They have versions ...

Re: CZ Scorpion Pistol to SBR

Some of the Scorpion barrel nuts can be real challenges to get off. Using a barrel nut tool, offset wrench, I was easily able to clear the handguard and turn the nut. Luckily there were only 2 or 3 threads w/ locktite on them. Cleaned right up with steel brush. http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah...

CZ Scorpion Pistol to SBR

I've previously posted about my CZ Scorpion EVO 3 S1 Carbine ( http://www.texaschlforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=87&t=84560 ). This post will be about the pistol version and its journey to becoming an SBR (Short Barreled Rifle). Here's what you start out with, a 9mm pistol: http://i1383.photobucket.c...

Re: Pistol carbine (CZ scorpion) vs AR Pistol

This is an in-progress project - CZ Scorpion SBR. It's getting a new handguard next week, and a noise abatement device when that arrives.

It just makes me smile. :cool:

Re: Defensive Shotgun class in Conroe

Was great having you guys come down and I'm doubly glad you braved the weather. In truth, I was determined to shoot regardless of the weather but I'm glad it stayed as light as it did. I'm also an enthusiastic convert to the Federal 00 Buck with the Flitecontrol wad. That's a night and day differenc...

Re: Force to deadly force when displaying a firearm

'Brandishing' isn't specifically in the penal code, but it's a term I think we all understand. I use the term in my classes when talking about 46.035 vs 9.04. "§46.035 - Unlawful Carrying of Handgun by License Holder (a) A license holder commits an offense if the license holder carries a handg...
