Well I may pay excessive attention to detail and am obsessed with making everything "perfect" for things like Machining, Welding and Reloading. But no. I am not OCD. I don't go and buy items that I don't necessarily need just to even out a storage compartment, or buy a ammo box because the shelf has space for one more. besides I reload everything.. factory ammo is junk and too inconsistent for my kind of shooting.

OMG. Sounds exactly like my grandpa. about the same age, runs a professional wood shop. stubborn to the core…. cut about half his thumb off on a table saw a year ago… and yet he won't listen to reason and yet he continues his unsafe practices…

The ATF wants to take away our 2nd amendment rights, the ban on XM855 is just another stepping stone they will use to reach their goal.
Join in to help Stop the ATF.
The ATF wants to ban XM855 green tip ammunition. Trop has had enough and wants you to join us in telling the ATF that "We Will Not Back Down!" Join the movement today and send a letter to the ATF letting them you have had enough too. As a way of expressing our stand against this ban we will give away two 600 round cases (1 per winner) of XM855 each day starting February 23rd through March 16th. When you stand with us you will automatically be e...

That Is a pretty cool alarm system, I got to set something like that up in my room
I am a professional machinist and welder. a few years back when I ran out of space in my 48 gun safe I decided to build my own safe.. during free time and on weekends over about a month I built a walk-in-safe. the exterior walls are made from 1/4" 60 Rc hardplate (to prevent drilling) , the entire inside I built from 2" ceramic fiber board 1" amorim insulating board glued to that and mounted 5/8 green-board over that. the front door plate is layered 2" ceramic fiber board 5/8" green board and 1" amorim board sandwitched between 10 ga mild steel on the inside and .375" 60 rc hardplate on the outside. (the door itself weighs 640 lbs and has 18 1-1/2" hardened bolts 12 retract 6 are fixed. I cnc machined the locking mechanism from 5/8"  stainless steel and bought a serial access control from AmSEC.  All in all It Is WAY overbuilt I don't think that even someone with access to the tools I have Could get it open even If they had all day to go at it. It would take forever to drill because the hardplate In-possible to torch because the ceramic directly beneath, the keypad access is very high quality. Impossible to pry, cant even get a tool between the door and jam plus the door is recessed 1"  Not to mention the many huge hardened bolts. plus talk about the fire ratings on this thing ;-) I built this thing directly into my (previously useless) walk-in closet and I am very proud of it.. :-)

You know that you make me so envious.. I have built most of my own guns ranging from f-class rifles to ar-15 / ar10s and handguns.. I have access to high end cnc machines at work where I can easily build a Suppressor.... however... I cant have one in Cali :-( anyhow great job on that M&P I am not the biggest fan of the short barrel"handgun" ar15... but that suppressor defiantly makes up for ti :-)

nice job NYC. I change sights on glocks and other handguns for my friends now and then. and I machined something similar to this a while back for my springfield xd. (I know you hate them.... but I don't care :-P )
anyway, If you think that a glock takes some force to press a sight in you should try to do the same on a xd ;-)

there are a few things I would do different in making this sight pusher if it were me.

1. use only one set screw. let the slide rest against a face that is perfectly perpendicular to the direction the sight is being pushed in from. (either remove the interior radius or put a shim on that side of the tube.

2. I see that other people in the comments have already mentioned this but use some thrust washers, it will make it a lot easier to crank that sight into place without so much friction.

BTW. When I install sights I chill them in a freezer (or dry ice if i have it on hand) beforehand. And take them out right before pressing them in place so they are as cold as possible. Trust me it makes a huge difference.

I SIGNED THE PETITION (not just for the Ammo but because it is the RIGHT THING TO DO) also contacted my family / friends and told them to do the same.

Great Review Nutn! I love savage rifles, they are one of the few rifles that can hold their own out of the box.
You are right about the 5.56 / .223 it really isn't designed to be a long range round. the bullet is too light to buck the wind, and loads are temperamental. But that doesn't mean It cant be be done. I built a .223 for my Ftr competitions / long range varmint shooting a little over a year ago. It has a savage model 12 target action and 6-oz acu-trigger, 30" 1:7" Custom Brux barrel, sightron 8-32x56lr-moa scope (which I highly recommend) aluminum pillar blocks and glass bedded into a bench style stock. over time I worked up load with 90gr burger vld seated .001" off the lands packed with IMR 8208. in trimmed and trued LC Brass. with this gun and load I consistently shoot one hole @ 200 yards (about (1/4 moa) and at 1000 yards I can keep it under 1moa consistently. (10 inches) and on good days I can even get under 3/4 moa. of course any thing more than a light breeze makes it Incredibly difficult and any more than that it just becomes impossible.
 I have shot the 110 ba in .338 lapua and let me tell you. It is a hell of a rifle, I absolutely love it, Incredible accuracy, well balanced, very steady, Plus When compared it to some of the F-Class and other heavy rifles I have shot It is will actually seem light. for example the Noreen ULR .338 lapua weighs about 32 lbs W/O Glass and my Buddie's 6.5 norma F-Class rifle weighs about 28 lbs naked.
anyhow I plan on doing some long range shooting videos at some point soon, shooting everything from my .223 rem@ 1000 yards to shooting my .338 Lapua @ 2000 yards :-)

There is nothing wrong with the 770 as compared to any other low cost budget rifle. but quality has defiantly gone downhill for all the Remington products, their entire line has suffered in the quality control department. (from the 870 to the 700 even the ammunition leaves a lot to be wanted.) I am a bit of a prude when It comes to firearms seeing 90% of all my guns are custom built by yours truly. all My factory guns I have bought off the shelf I have turned around and replaced triggers, barrels, trued actions, lapped luggs, glassbedded, etc. I load all my own ammo because most factory ammo sucks and the rest of it is still mediocre.
but going back to their rifles. here Is where I think that the quality has suffered the most. not just in their budget rifles but their entire line. all their barrels are junk. their actions aren't true. triggers are creepy, lugs require lapping etc.
The performance of even their long range rifles is pretty much limited to the average big game hunter who takes game at less than 500 yards. To me that is fairly mild range Long range starts after 1000 yards.
After saying that, Yes you may have a decent 770 but from experience it it is pretty much a crapshoot whether you get a decent rifle or a wall ornament. and while we are on this subject why don't we look at some of my favorite old rifles Marlin lever actions...  Have you seen what happened to the quality control is on these ever since Remington bought them out? (in case you didn't know Remington bought Marlin some years ago, fired all the techs, and had all the equipment shipped to their factories) since then the quality has been horrendous. Bad stock fitting, bad bolt machining, bad sight mounting (the scope mounting screws are visibly misaligned, Bad chamber tolerances, etc)
I No longer buy anything factory from Remington. If I want a Remington style action I have it custom built.
Cheers! :-)
