    School of the American Rifle

    I may have been living under a rock, but I recently stumbled upon this individuals channel and find it fascinating.

    Hopefully others will find something of value in these as well.

    No, I don’t know the guy and am not affiliated in any way. Just sharing some technical content others may appreciate.

    He gets pretty heavy into tolerance stacking and figuring out exactly why something fails, or won't run.

    Good stuff as far as I am concerned.

    Yep. Been following him for a while. Great channel. I really want a set of those cool guy gauges he has.

    Was actually just now watching him do physicals on 5 KAC bolt carriers and a LMT enhanced bolt. Would love to get my hands on all those cool gages and check my stuff.

    Learned a lot about not all AR parts being the same.

    I wondered about that........Do you know under what name he posts?

    Yeah, since I started watching I've been going through my bolts doing what I can without his tools thinking how fabulous it would be to have them on my bench.

    I can't make it through a single video without thinking he is an idiot at one point or another.



    He called that shit 'ready to install and run'...

    In one of his other videos he spent more time measuring FP protrusion and talking about how 'out of spec' it was than it would have taken to just fix / correct the damn pin and move on. If he really wanted to help people he would have explained what range of protrusion to look for and then showed how to get there in less time than he spent whining about the one particular pin being ever so slightly 'off'.

    Big talk for someone that has provided what value to this community?

    I do remember him explaining the acceptable level of protrusion in a video from a while back. I don’t remember what it was off the top of my head however.

    On various forums, I have seen several people run out buy some random gauge set and disassemble their working rifle to measure some inane thing and and learn that it’s “out of spec” and panic. Turned me off from the guy. That and how he jumped to internet stardom thanks to Primary & Secondary.
    AQ planned for years and sent their A team to carry out the attacks, and on Flight 93 they were thwarted by a pick-up team made up of United Frequent Fliers. Many people look at 9/11 and wonder how we can stop an enemy like that. I look at FL93 and wonder, "How can we lose?". -- FromMyColdDeadHand
