How about a DIY thread.

That's a good idea. There are a bunch of Cali-specific gunsmithing we'all talk about: SB23 legal grips, removing magazine disconnects, frankinstein monster pistols (ie Jiminez serial number cut off and wielded to an AK frame ;) ), etc. My only reservation would be that the traffic would be pretty low. Then again, I doubt it would be any lower than the locks and safes section...

I double the gunsmithing thread. It is nice to get input and guidance if you have issues from like minded folks that may know more than you. As well you get to chat with and meety more gun guys that way.

Eh, don't see much of a need for it personally. Got all the info I needed with the current setup...

I don't think it is a bad idea.

I like it. Those have been my favorite forums on other sites. With a sticky at the top for the typical ar and ak build questions, there would be a good place for the rest of the helpful gunsmithing questions and ideas.

You guys really have no idea how many butchered guns I see. The thought for a DIY forum was to save some folks from costly errors or just to give some help and support. Not everybody has a machine shop in the driveway or the knowledge of some of us who have been doing this stuff for years.

Most times than not at my shop I am happy to help someone solve a problem and it does not cost them a dime. There are a lot of new folks who are just coming of age so to speak. All the OLL stuff and more is just so new to them.

Lets all help them out and point them in the right direction.

In 1964 I used to take my rifle to my Jr. high school machine shop class to work on it. Try to do that now.....

This isn't a bad idea, there are a few things to figure out starting with which forum would this be in?

Firearms discussion. That way people will know that it applies to all types of firearms.
