I always liked those clamp style rings vs the rail mounts. I don't know why, but the rail stuff always looked cheap to me. I bought a bunch of stuff to do up a rail on my SKS and hated it once it was all together. Jerked it all off and just went back to iron sights.

I've always thought the SKS in particular looked like shit festooned with rails and shit. Like a little top-mount cheesegrater just long enough for a scope, OK. Massive floating fore-end with multi rails and lasers and lights and shit... nah son

Archangel stock came in.

Looks really good. Still need to check the fit.

It's gonna be a damn nice hybrid rifle.

Scope should arrive today.

Cleaning with whatever light oil I can find.

Need to get a new cleaning kit. This one looks good, and not tactical.

New scope fits with the factory scope rings.

Less than 1/4 inch of clearance on each end in the center section of the scope.





New stock looks good. Waiting for more parts to come in.

Also ordered parts for my 1911. It's a factory polished stainless Colt Officer's acp. Needs some repair and mods.

Wilson Combat ultralight match trigger came in.

Never fitted a trigger before. Will use common sense, and try to read a bit, first.

Look onto getting Kuhnhausen's 1911 books. Very helpful. Brownells has a nice trigger track stone that isn't expensive, and a square file with safe sides will help too.

I have fitted the same trigger and then a Nighthawk Custom to one of my frames. Both times I polished the trigger bar sides, then filed and stoned the tracks till I was happy w the fit and action.

Cleaning kit came in.

Just bought it for the box, but the rack's useful because I don't have a gun vise. Works great for cleaning the barrel. Box is real wood, and okay quality for the price.

Ordered a bunch of cleaning supplies for the box. Need brushes for cleaning the rifle bolt.

Can now get things cleaned up and start putting on new parts.
Using motorcycle cleaning solvents & lubricants.

Got these grips for the compact 1911.

Could have seen the polished stainless receiver and TiN gold magazine through the grip.



Sending them back. Not installed.

Just touching them, I can tell it would be like holding a ball of chicken wire. They're aluminum, not rubber/composite.
