What I will say about this forum is. The active memebers are absolute gentlemen. They are EASILY the most knowledgable group of people you're likely to find on an internet forum. Sure you can find some better specific knowledge on some specialty forum, but for general knowledge, I'll put GunHub members against anyone.
There is almost NO BS here on this forum because everyone here values the truth, and disdains drama. Of everyone here I'm easily the biggest a-hole, so that means I can get along here quite well.
Absolute best bunch of guys on the internet.
Thanks Kevin that means a lot.
I suspect there is a story few know. I stumbled onto the SSBB on Prodigy and it was my first online experience. I was at what became known as "spring break" in Florida when S&W introduced the Sigma.
There were a bunch of writers there and I knew Dean from his column in "Gun Week."
As writers sometimes do there was a crowd in the bar and I was talking to Chris Killoy who was a VP at S&W and now a bigger wheel at Ruger. He also knew about the SSBB and we explained it to Dean.
Next thing you know he was hooked up with Prodigy and the SSBB took off. Dean originated the Gunstock gatherings and Tim, Walt and I made a pilgrimage to Long Island's Pine Barrens for what was... I think... the second Gunstock.
As boards do folks came and went but Dean's "no BS, no whining" policy survives.
PS: the picture that is my avatar was shot at that Gunstock.
That's too cool. Being all the way on the left coast, I never got to go to Gunstock...just watched all you guys having fun without me. I think it was Mark Freburg who told me about the Prodigy SSBB (so you all can blame him).
I left when Prodigy did the big money grab. Took me over a decade to find this place and been here ever since.
RIVERBANK ARMORY- '' Run Forrest! Run!! '' Riverbank is notoriously known for his parts fakery.
AmBack was an interesting sojourn. Between Charlie Petty and Dean I learned a lot, including some of the things I thought I knew were wrong.
need a bolt lock lever for an univ m1 carbine 30 cal
if any one knows where i can buy a bolt slide lever/pin for a universal m1 carbine 3rd generation:confused. or even just the bolt and thread size i could fabricate one. please help ive already tried numrich and most other big timers. :confused:
Riverbank has a well deserved reputation for selling repro parts as originals. You show always be suspicious of any parts supplier who seems to have endless supplies of rare parts. They also have a very high restocking fee if you do return something that isn't right. I advise against doing business with this outfit. And I did receive a faked part from them. It was supposed to be an early IP mag catch. It turned out to be a late style catch that the face of the catch had been ground off to hide the M marking on the face and was reblued! Then it was stamped IP. Well there are some pretty distinct differences in the early and late mag catches and IP never made a type 3 catch which is what this one was. That is my personal experience, and I've heard many similar tales from others.
