hunter edgecomb: Found out its easier to just buy a see thru scope mount for like $24
sinandpunishment: I'm sure you know this, but the bluing pen doesn't work for all metals.
There are different types of bluing for brass and aluminum as well. I've
ran into the same issue with that pen as my vise had scratched an upper I
was working on. For new guys out there, painting is ok, but remember if it
gets hot; think about what your putting on it and make sure it's made for
MrPunish44: tried this using Leupold low PRWs, uncle mikes hammer extension, and a
Nikon P-300 Blackout Rifle Scope 2-7x 32mm. The scope still does not make
clearance due to the size, shape, and location of the power magnification
dial. A few notes though, the unlocking lever is loose and tends to
snag/rub the extension spur. (especially when gravity pulls it out, such
as deroostering with the muzzle skyward) i had to grind the edges of both the
lever and the extension spur to ensure they would not ever contact. I used
an angle grinder and it made short work of the hammer. I cut a 90 deg
relief into the hammers base where it widens out to help seat the ext.
lower rather than open up the inside of the extension, this ensured a tight
snug fitment when installed.
koxx dta: Would it have cleared with mid rings? Just curious,trying to avoid grinding
hammer for now
AirborneBadass: Your methods for modification are awesome to say the least. I can really
appreciate how you went about cutting and shaping that hammer. This is a
project that I am about to start soon and you basically showed me every
step that I need. Thanks for the great vid...
Big Gee: Has the trigger become lighter with use? That is the only thing negative
about this rifle. I am use to 4.5 triggers.
Tyler Morse: Hey man I like your vid. Your rifle looks sweet as well with that scope and
muzzle break. IMO I think a skeletonized buttstock would complement the
muzzle break and scope, that's just my two cents anyways, well done.
theWZZA: Hey, man, I had this question about scope clearance as soon as I saw the
gun. Thanks for making the vid.
Tetra84: I was getting soft primer strikes with that offset hammer extension. As
much as I liked it, it was making for unreliable shots. When I took it off
it was making good strikes again. Wish I could get it to work. :/
wonderwolf303: nice Project! A sharp clean flat file would do it quicker I think, and of
course no worries about overheating. I hate seeing guys using dremels on
guns. But it works!
Johnny Hocking: what height rings are you using? I am planning on doing this to my
TWANGnBANG: Grind and paint is a simple as it gets. :)
TWANGnBANG: That is in the schedule, for sure, but it will be a month or so for me to
TWANGnBANG: Thanks so much!
TheWhip8100: You need a suppressor for that rifle now. A thermal imaging scope would be
nice too. Nice work on the hammer modification.
Homemade Guns: Cool! Great job!
TWANGnBANG: It's the Rockwell Jawhorse. I love it.
Thomas Ainlay: What did you add under the forend stock screw?
Vlad Innawoods: What kind of vice is that?
coolgeekish: Place a deck of cards or feeler gauges between your scope base and the
bottom of your scope (the flat part) when installing the scope in the
rings. This will give you perfect alignment without messing with bubble
iamTFT: what thumb screw are you using for your forend?
Jon with no h shootology channel: Neat mod. I may do this just to give me a little more room below my scope.
Just a little too close right now.
Nakoa Warrior: GET HIGHER SCOPE RINGS
TWANGnBANG: My AAC 762-SDN-6 is actually featured in the video where I review this
rifle. Very nice combination. You can find the link in the video
TWANGnBANG: I tried it again, and frankly, I'm not too excited about it. I'd get an AAC
Micro 7 instead.
Kenny Hoang: Review on the mueller apt please !!!!
Jake Lonergan: No problems, only solutions!
TWANGnBANG: Thanks for watching!
TWANGnBANG: It's really easy. Just make sure you keep the hammer from getting hot.
TWANGnBANG: Glad you liked the video. I thought most would find it boring, but I don't
do much of anything without videoing it these days. :)
TWANGnBANG: I'm sure that looks great. Thanks for your support!
propdoctor21564: That's a cool little rifle.
TWANGnBANG: Thanks so much!
TWANGnBANG: I really like how it turned out, too. Glad I went through with it instead
of just buying taller rings.
TWANGnBANG: AAC really thought this one through.
TWANGnBANG: There are so many little garage gunsmith projects like this that anyone can
do. This just happened to be one I could get on video.
SuperGreatObserver: Great job!!! Fantastic!!
StachiBCNR33: Just let us know when you tried it out again! I'm thinking about getting
one too, but I'm only allowed 2 Guns per Half Year by law. If the Gun's
Sh!t, I lost one Slot and am practically stuck with it :(
TWANGnBANG: I'm sure that works great, but the bubble level took all of the two seconds
you saw. A bubble level on the scope also shows when you are tightening the
rings unevenly because it will go out of level. Thanks for the tip!
TWANGnBANG: Yeah, that's the problem with light rifles. This actually uses the youth
stock, so for a 300 BLK, it has a little recoil.
recon562001: Ah I see. I just got one in .22 and added a coat of krylon green to protect
it more and, I like the look of a green/brown/tan gun better. I watch all
your videos keep up the good work!
recon562001: Now you just need to durakote it with a home kit.
TWANGnBANG: Actually, the AAC Handi Rifle is milspec phosphate coated, both barrel and
receiver. This is different than the standard Handi Rifle and part of the
reason that the AAC version costs more.
nathan halowell: that is great
alchemistTi: Did you fix your vertical stringing issue?
GoreTorn16: Always interesting and fun to watch your videos TwangNBang! Great work on
Mr223wssm: Nice! I have one of those rifles in .308 win.
