  1. Engrave both barrels for a SBR?

    I'll have two barrels that I'll be using. The shorter barrel is listed on my paperwork. Do I need to engrave them both? I'll have the shorter one with the firearm, but if I change to a slightly longer one, then the SBR becomes "unmarked." What to do? I did plan only to have the shorter one...

  2. Vector Uzi Drums

    Are the vector drums that are similar to the C&S drums worth having? Are they reliable? Thanks

  4. What park solution to use?

    Parkerizing seems pretty straight forward. Prep the metal, degrease, heat up the solvents, and drop it in. Am I missing anything? And I saw people saying you could use a metal pot to heat up the solvents than pour it into a large plastic container since its under 200 degrees. Is this a big no no?...

  5. What to cover when painting the receiver?

    I taped off the feeding ramp and the ejector, should I also tape off the front trunnion? Guessing not but doesnt hurt to ask.

  6. Just bought first Uzi, teach me.

    I just bought a Vector Mini Uzi Carbine 9mm. The receiver has the "bar" in the back (not a Group Ind) and is stamped Action Arms and IWI on the underside. Folding stock. Is this good for a Vector?

  7. Alternative to parkerizing?

    What’s out there to finish the receiver with besides parkerizing? I heard gunkote is good, and Brownells aluma Hyde works good too. I’m not really worried about it being as durable as parkerizing, I’m not going to war with it. I really like the look of this grey:

    I have a Vector Mini Uzi Carbine 9mm, has the Action Arms/IMI receiver. I can chamber a round, fire it, the bolt cycles and chambers another round, but the trigger doesn't reset. I can reset the trigger by putting it on safe and then back on fire. That is the only way I can get the trigger to...

  10. Best way to finish a receiver?

    I’ve seen some people blue it and some people parkerize it and others just spray paint it. What is the best way to finish a receiver? I also see people say Aluma Hyde 2 black or semis gloss black looks good too. Thanks in advance

  15. Barrel to reciever bottom distance

    Does anyone know this distance off-hand? Trying to install a milled feedramp with a SMG-spec barrel and front trunnion and it appears there is not enough clearance for the feedramp to fit under the barrel? I have read that it should be between 0.035-0.040... Feedramp is BWE. Thanks!

  19. Top cover gap question?

    I know it’s supposed to be between .005 and .015, but how loose should the .015 be able to move around in it? It moves but has some pressure, and my gap even takes my 0.35 in if I push on it hard. Seems like my bolt moves down and allows the bigger gauge to go in

  20. Looking for screwdriver recommendations

    I am looking for recommendations on a good gunsmithing screwdriver set. Specifically, I want to find a correct screwdriver to use for the Uzi rear sight leaf screw and the Uzi hand guard screws. Rather than do my usual ham-handed job, I would like to get a nice, clean, unmarred look.
