  1. Yes, on the old site, you clicked on unread posts, and then clicking somewhere (I forget where exactly, it was second nature), it took you to the oldest of the unread posts, if there were several of them. That's what I'm trying to figure out again. A thread has several posts that I haven't read. It makes sense to read them in chronological order, starting with the oldest (least recent) of them. On the new forum, I haven't figured out a way to go directly to that oldest unread post. I can either go to the start of the thread, sometimes from years ago, or I can go to the most recent
  2. What do you click on to get to the oldest of several unread posts? After I go to "Unread Content", if I click on the main thread title it takes me to page no. 1, and if I click on the time stamp (e.g. 16 hrs), it takes me to the most recent post.
  3. Is that the PMC kit? Looks much like the one I have, now invisible thanks to photobucket and my laziness.
  4. There's also a whole bunch of about writing essays and such posted on the news page. It's over 24 hrs and I'm surprised it hasn't been taken down.
  5. What tool did you use to create the impressions? The dimples look (a) too close together and ( too shallow.
  6. Also: I found that I could install a bunch of RS parts/accessories that I sourced from Fulton Armory, starting with the plasticky cover that goes over the forearm.
  7. The Veteran I got years ago was the most accurate AEG out of the box that I've ever had. And I've had a few AEGs over the years...
  8. Mod 0 is the coolest ever, in my humble opinion. But the Classic Army metal front end weighs a ton...
  9. The search engine on this site only recognizes search words of 4 characters or more. Therefore all searches for 3-character terms return zero results. Really helpful, as so many makes and models are precisely 3 characters.
  10. Certainly the force of the hammer spring (and its design, as again explored in that video review) has an effect. But my point is this. The plate behind the BBU is vertical. The hammer does not sit vertically, but rather slightly angled back from the vertical. Therefore, when you go to rack the slide, the part of the hammer that the plate engages with is only 1 mm or so above the pivot point of the hammer. The basic physics of "moments" applies. If the plate engaged with the top of the hammer (several mm higher) it would be easier to push back--this is what it feels like if you take off t
  11. I'm referring to the hunk of silvery metal referred to here as 03-21. Much bigger than the equivalent piece on, say, Glocks. When uncocked, the front face of 03-21 sits at an angle slightly back from perpendicular. So when you rack the slide, the plate 01-21 (on the back of the BBU) engages first with the lowest part of the face, which is closest to its axis point. This is why the slide has a lot of resistance in battery when you first go to rack it. Also, when the slide is returning to battery, the plate 01-21 is spring-loaded to flap upwards to allow it to pass over 03-21 on its way bac
  12. If you're serious about it, it's definitely worth watching the review linked in post #54 all the way through. You may dismiss some of his criticisms, but he gives a good description of the strange design of the striker and how it interacts with the plate (that flaps) which cocks it when racking the slide.
  13. Many thanks! Googling that precise name brings up 8 results, all sites that end in .cz Perhaps GG is waiting for the 100th anniv. version to sell out in other countries before they distribute there.
  14. Any mileage in the Dawson magwell insert?
  15. Thanks. That explains it. It looks more like the Inokatsu than the 100th anniv. edition. But I've been googling around, and don't find it for sale anywhere, really. Must be a slow rollout.
