There are few things more fun that you can pick up at the post office than real gun parts.
I missed the mailman yesterday, and a signature was required. So, I took my little "missed you" note to the main branch, and received a box in return. It was from Ares Armor, a rambunctious little gun parts store down in occupied California-stan. Good guys. They're uppity, and I like that, so they get my bucks.
So, I get home, and here's the unboxing...
The charm of the .300 Blackout is that it can fire either with little adjustment. From left to right, you have three .300 Blackout loading in various projectile weights, a 5.56 NATO round, and a 7.62x39 cartridge.
Like I said a few weeks ago, your grand-pappy's 30-06 makes a 5.56 NATO cartridge look miniscule in comparison. Don't be scared. 30-06 comparison photo is from this blog, which gives a good run-down on the capabilities of the two chamberings.
On with the parts...
