Got a stoeger double barrel 12g, RIA 38 special, and winchester .22 this weekend. Nothing special. Just some cheap arms that I wanted to have.
Now i really need a desert trip to get this 300 win mag dialed in. Need help though. I can only shoot so many before my shoulders done lol
How do you like the sxs? I'm a sucker for all things double Barrel

I just got these a few days. 1: Ithaca model 72 lever action saddle gun. Made '73-'78. I don't think it has never been shot. It has some serious damage as can be seen in the pics

This patch was run thru the barrel 4 times. The one on the right is new. 2: Savage Golden West model 12DL series A. I know nothing about this gun and I can find no info about it online. It was a free gun.IMG_20220420_113628223.jpgIMG_20220424_142342335.jpg

Six months to pay off what other people made me spend then I can start looking at things for myself again. Ammo prices are coming down finally. Met a dude that has a FFL and runs a gun smithing shop, but he says he can't order in bulk unless we're willing to drop 40k+ on a pallet. Haha. Apparently the suppliers aren't willing to discount unless you order by the pallet.

Word of advice if looking to put together an AR10 don't do Aero precision. Hugely disappointed in mine hasn't worked right from day 1. Aero lower and lpk including Aero m5 buffer kit. Larure trigger is only non Aero internal part

Complete upper from Aero with stainless barrel Aero bcg and CH. Pretty sure combo of bad headspacing and or bad bolt. Been back to them once and returned back in worse shape trying to send it back again but likely say F it and buy a new criterion barrel with matched bolt to resolve it.

The pain in the ass this has been and ammo I've wasted testing I would have been better off buying a quality rifle like Daniel defense 308

That sucks. My AR 15 is all Aero except the stock, grip, and trigger. Never had an issue with it aside from fail to feed but it's a common issue with the magazines I have.

Aero makes great stuff, but they don't make barrels. Have you properly headspaced the bolt and barrel or run field gauges at a minimum?
How long is the barrel?
Where is the gas port?
How heavy is the buffer?
What is it not doing well?

Thats sucks so bad. Youd be so happy with a daniel defense,LMT, or Larue.

What ammo are you using?
7.62x51 or .308 Winchester?
Initial testing of 400+ rds trying to sort multitude of issues was little bit of everything 147gr 7.62 up to 175gr 308.

At this stage it's only something a gunsmith can diagnose or fix

Just sharing in case anyone was planning an AR10 build using aero. Dont expect much help if their own parts don't work reliably
