WLS Double Tap 293 – Disabled Service

Welcome to Double Tap, episode 293 – Disabled Service

Dear WLS 

Eric J: 

Hey guys. I recently picked up a Mini 50 chassis kit from Manticore Arms and now I need recommendations on a good threaded bull barrel for a 10/22. The barrel doesn’t have to be high end or anything since this gun will just be meant to look cool and be a fun range toy. What would you recommend to help get a mini Barrett look? Also, I’ll need a scope that looks like the Barrett’s as well. Thanks.

Brent B: 

Hey all, I’m in the middle of upgrading my nearly 20 year old Remington 870 express super magnum into a bit more of a tactical shotgun and could use some advice and ideas. It’s a 3 1/2” chamber 22” barrel with interchangeable chokes and has served me well for 18 years. So far everything I’ve added to it has been super simple and easy with no modification required…. however, I just got a +2 magazine tube extension from Wilson Combat so I could also easily mount a rail, sling and light, everything fit perfectly except for my magazine follower. My factory mag tube is grooved on two sides and because of this when I load more than the standard 4 shell capacity the follower binds up when it hits the grooves since it’s not lining up. Is there any specific magazine follower out there that y’all know of I could get to fix this issue? If not, what do you suggest as far as modifying my current follower that came with the tube extension?? (The one that came with the tube had no grooves at all and I had to file it down myself) I’m not familiar with newer 870s and from what I’ve heard about them I don’t want to be, I absolutely love this shotgun and would like to avoid any permanent modifications to the factory magazine tube if at all possible. Any ideas would be much appreciated. Thanks. Love the show and keep it up.

Jason P: 

Looking for a decent welder for muzzle devices. I am a brand new FFL. i am looking for something budget friendly. I will be working out of my home’s basement, basic residential electrical service.


Alex W: 

Do y’all think the 5.7 is a superior round to the 9mm? Hearing Shawn talk about the PSA rock has me thinking about buying one.

On another note, I hate FK for making the 7.5 cartridge overall length too long to fit in most 10mm handguns. When it came out I was really hoping I could get a conversion barrel for my glock 10mm.

Professional Squancher: 

I am building out my battle belt and wanted to know outside from the obvious emergency medical items in an ifak, magazines and handcuff key what else do you try to hide in an ifak? I have a CAT key and a compass but drawing blanks on other items.

Also Buttstock and grip of my rifle has space for candy. what should I be packing for shtf and training classes.

Sincerely, your most seductive fan.

Keep it tight Aaron *kisses*

Adam A: 

Hey guys, I have a dumbass question. So I’ve always wanted to get into reloading. I know absolutely nothing about it and have never even seen it done. I’ve tried doing some research on this and I’m more confused now than when I started. Say for example I wanted to be able to reload 9mm, what would I need to get started? Thanks.
