I don't know the seller but just wanted to give fellow Calgunners here in SD a heads up! Someone buy this before I do! I'd love another one but don't really need it.

I'd like to see the foam cutter, I'd just ordered some new foam inserts for my 1750. Was wondering how best to go about it.

Yea, I got some foam cutter from Michael's and it totally didn't work (it'll be going back soon as I get some time). I ended up using my paring knife. I'm sure it didn't turn out as good as a good foam cutter but it's good enough.

Yea. I've seen the thread on AR15 I think it was about how to build one, but I opted not to since I don't see myself needing to use it more than this one time for a long time.

The knife worked well enough. Definitely not as pretty, but well enough.

Get a source of heat like a torch or open flame.
Get a wire hanger.
Untangle wire hanger so you have an exposed end.
Heat exposed end.
Cut foam.

Profit.

Yea, I tried that, but the tiny candle I had just didn't cut it. ;)
