  1. I had the zip replaced in my leather bike jacket a while back,not a hard thing to do when you specialize in this kind of thing Try Hideout Leather, not local to you, but worth a call and possibly the cost of return postage 🙂
  2. No difference as far as I know, I have chambered rifles in both calibers and had no issues i have a feeling that 5.56 is a CiP spec and all .223 is proofed to CiP spec and they possibly use the same neck and throat gauges The old .233 vs 5.56 debate is usually led by people who don’t know what they are talking about and it goes back to when Ruger started building .223 rifles using an extremely short throat....which they don’t use anymore, but the myth still exists I have built plenty of rifles with a true .223 chamber (0.025”) freebore, and never seen a problem, but most rifles have a longer throat these days and everyone spouts “Wylde” while not really knowing what it is, but all mine are .223 Wylde to placate everyone, but if all I had was a .223 SAAMi chambered Rifle, it wouldn’t bother me in the slightest, I’d still shoot 5.56 down it when I felt like it

    AR-10 Magwell vice block

    Aah... So if it uses SR25 mags it will also use Magpul LR PMags, and as they are around £25-30 compared to a genuine SR25 mag, which is about £125 if you could find one, the PMags are a no-brainer What I would do in your case is get one of these and sacrifice it by filling it full of resin/Devcon etc, and hey presto....a 308 Mag Well block 🙂 https://www.brownells.co.uk/epages/UK.sf/en_GB/?ObjectID=73632 https://www.brownells.co.uk/AR-308-20RD-MAGAZINE-308-WINCHESTER-AR-308-Magazine-308-Winchester-20rd-Aluminum-Gray-BROWNELLS-Semi-Auto-20-Round-078000200

    AR-10 Magwell vice block

    The only thing available by anyone as far as I know is this, and to be honest it sn't strong enough to put any torque on https://www.brownells.co.uk/epages/UK.sf/en_GB/?ObjectID=1113630 If you want to do a barrel change, you need to separate the receivers and clamp the upper somehow, or something is going to get broken This will fit a DPMS LR 308 pattern rifle, but most likely not an AR10 https://www.brownells.co.uk/AR-15-Upper-Receiver-Block-DPMS-308-Upper-Receiver-Block-AR-308-231000240 Not all 308 patterned ARs are AR10's, so what do you have?

    What waterproof jacket / smock

    Maybe not fashionable in the shooting world, but I've got a North Face jacket I've been knocking the hell out of for the last 11 years, and still as weatherproof as the day I bought it It's breathable too with underarm vents

    I am after a .223 / 5.56 AR15

    He's a tyre kicker, he saw that £1800 rifle and Posts "Hi, I assume that comes with the scope?" A £1300 S&B PM2???? This is after he asks me what I'll take for the one I'm selling then says "I'll have to pass this time", after I'd dropped the price for him Then he was chasing the Kriss .22 someone else was selling.....

  14. I won't be there on Sunday, only Friday this week It's bigger than a Jet-Z As for a sound comparison, hard to tell TBH, it's been a while since I fired either
