How many times is it even possible to get away with a brazen scam like that before your payment processor drops you? Surely it's in the single digits.

Maybe the actual scheme is hoping people reuse their email password when they register.

I have a rifle with a muzzle device that was attached with rocksett. I have left it soaking in water several times now, and brownish film is starting to develop where the barrel meets the muzzle device, but the drat thing still will not budge, and I'm worried about twisting the receiver if I torque any harder.

Any suggestions, TFR? I'm open to anything at this point.

Do you care about the muzzle device? If not you could always dremel it off (only half serious here).


If youíve left it to soak and itís still not loosening, how sure are you it was rocksett? I would try applying some heat. If you have a vice you can clamp the barrel between two sheets of leather and that way your not torquing the receiver.

Is the water hot? I put my barrel muzzle device-first in a pot of boiling water over the stove for 30 min and I was able to remove it.

Dead Reckoning
Sep 13, 2011


I'm quite confident it was rocksett, I want to keep the muzzle device, and I've already tried boiling water for 30 min. Maybe torch next to see if heat breaks it loose. It turned maybe 10į so far, but isn't moving further, so frankly I'm worried I've already damaged something/twisted the barrel.

E: I actually have padded vise jaws, they're just a hair too long for the available barrel.

From what I understand about Rocksett is that just heat doesn't do the job. I think it's the water boiling that is the secret.

Yeah, I emailed flexibar and hot water was their suggestion. Guess I'll try round 3 of that. Starting to feel like the ordeal that was removing my AUG's muzzle device.

My concern is that the brown film is rust that's forming inside the threads and freezing it up more.

Try some Kroil (or whatever penetrating oil you have on hand). If itís rust thatís frozen it then that may help. Just donít apply heat afterwards.

Yeah hot water should get you to a place to torque off the device. If you have a stainless barrel or a weird alloy device I suppose some kind of galling or galvanic corrosion might be possible, but that is a stretch really. It's possible it was just mechanically overtorque, but you can try the penetrating oil and work it back and forth to see if it's seized. If not back to the boiling water would be my advice.

Hey question about FFL transfer fees. I ordered a gun off gun broker and it arrived at my FFL damaged. The seller issued me a refund, but my FFL insisted on their $45 FFL fee before they would take any action. I didn't take ownership of the gun and they didn't run a background check on me. Do I have grounds for a chargeback or are they allowed to do that?

Receipt is for "firearm transfer fee" I paid because they said their fee was for handling the gun on their side and they wouldn't send it back before I paid. I probably shouldn't have paid, but they were pushy with it and I'm stupid.

Chase credit card

Awesome. Contact Chase and tell them you wish to dispute a charge on your account. Tell them that you paid for a service and the merchant has not completed that service, they charged you a fee to transfer an item and fill out some paperwork and that the item was returned to the original merchant and not actually transferred to you or the paperwork filed. They may ask you some more questions, and you may have to fill out/sign a form. Make sure you keep the receipt and take a picture, they may ask you to send it to them. BE HONEST, if they ask if it was a firearm tell the truth. But donít volunteer that info. None of this guarantees they will refund you, but it gives you a good chance.

This is why you ALWAYS use a credit card for purchases over the internet. The legal protections are much stronger and the CC issuer typically cares more about making you happy (the more you use the card the more likely they get their 25% APR out of you) than they do some dumbass merchant they made a 2.5% interchange fee off of.

In hindsight I would have suggested a portion of the fee. Partial services, partial payment. They may have spent time coordinating receipt, on emails, or pre-filling out paperwork. I don't know but if they spent some time they are entitled to some payment in my opinion. But it is not reasonable to expect full payment from you if the transfer was not done, and frankly $45 seems high for this fee in general.

I don't know if I would go to my bank/card issuer and say "yo i bought a damaged gun off the internet and the dealer wanna charge me" at this point. If you already paid I would say life lesson and move on.

they also have to pay return shipping to get the gun back to the sender, and it's not unusual for FFLs to pay a fee on top of shipping costs to ship a gun for you

Oh, hello. Didnít see you there, sorry. Since youíre here, might I tender Master with a question and a gentle kiss on the forehead?

So I got this Ruger PC Charger - all decked out in addons and whatnot. It has an FS1913 folding brace on it. I enjoy it but frankly I have (hypothetically) never used it as it is legally intended - which of course is why itís probably gonna get reclassified.

Iím wondering if I were to get a PC Carbine instead, if I can use it on that since it is a rifle. Because frankly it only weighs like a pound more, still breaks down and all my poo poo will remain compatible.
The PC Carbine ships with a non-folding brace - I just donít know if it is legal to make it foldable?

As a bonus, here is my Ruger collection, awaiting itís MKIV Lite brother (waiting to punch out foam holes until it arrives).

You can ask in the NFA thread for specifics, but a foldable stock likely makes it less than the required overall length for a rifle and would be legal only if you made it a SBR.

If the $45 includes shipping it back, that seems totally fair to me. Time is money, friend. And you've wasted their time with a bad deal.

Overall length is measured unfolded and fully extended, folding or collapsing makes no difference.

The overall length of a firearm is the distance between the muzzle of the barrel and the rearmost portion of the weapon measured on a line parallel to the axis of the bore. Ö If the rifle has a permanently attached muzzle device, that is part of the overall length

big yes, but it probably has a fixed choke that limits what you can do with it.

American pump shotguns made before the Remington 870 came along and lowered the common denominator to "stamped receivers and meh wood" were works of art. If you see an old Winchester Model 12 (or 97), Remington Model 31, or Ithaca 37 at a good price you should snap it up.
