  1. Advice sought as I have never used a sling in earnest and want to get off of my belly and bipod for a new experience. So.... I want to be able to 'patrol carry' when not in actual use as well as use the sling for positional shooting support. I am aware of 1,2,3 point slings but struggling to really appreciate pros and cons....... plus availability in the UK. All nuggets of wisdom gratefully received.

    Yankee Hill Machine forend jam nutremoval

    Worth a look if I can find a slim one.
  6. Gents Short of having to buy the specific YHM wrench for a one-off removal ... any ideas on how to loosen the jam nut on a YHM handguard? I have a DPMS armourers wrench but there does not seem to be anything that fits the jam nut. Thanks in advance. Ps.... if anyone has YHM wrench thats unwanted then I will buy it rather than faff around.

    Picatinny rail drilling

    Anyone know where I can buy a flat bottomed drill bit to make a clearance hole for the head of a bolt holding a rail on? If it makes any difference its a 4mm bolt thread with a 7mm head that I want a flat bottomed hole for.

    A cure for the Labradar blues.........

    I find the combo of 1066 recoil trigger and the app to be perfect for my needs.
