    Pretty remarkable. An amazing skill they have there. Curious as to why he gives the vise a few taps every now and then? Perhaps to keep the hammer face smooth?

    I’ve picked up a few nice ones here and there in the last year or so for $30-$40 a pop. From forum want ads and such that seems to be the going rate. I just wanted a few to go with my Maadi. And what...

    Feed issue is probably mag well related. Does mag have a lot of forward/ backward play? Evidently if holding rearward pressure on the mag allows it to feed, I would say yes. That magwell looks pretty...
