Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Re: Rust.

Thank you everyone for your replies. I elected to go with some light machine oil and steel wool. Then wiped it down and put it away. After all, it is just a common, generic magazine. Thank you all again.

Rust.

I have a magazine for a m1 Carbine that has surface rust on it. Looking for some hints on how to remove this without removing what is left of the bluing. Wipe it down with WD40 and call it a day? Soak it in vinegar? Coke-a-Cola? Inquiring minds want to know.

Mauser model 58 on Proxibid

Saw this and had to laugh.

Model 58

If you don't look close, I guess it does look like a 58.

Re: Question about iron sights on an AR

Thank you for the reply RWS. You answered my question at the end of your post. Since the front sight is also the gas tube block, the position of the gas tube block dictates where the front sight is located.
Thank you again.

Question about iron sights on an AR

I do have a question about sights on Ar rifles. On modern AR rifles why is the front sight so close to the handguard? I realize that most people would not even be using iron sights, but doesn't it affect the aiming with the front sight a third of the way down the barrel?

Thanks...
