    :dunno: I want something that won't make it look like a complete abomination. It's a WASR-2 if it matters. Suggestions?

    Tan duct tape. Use it on your magazines, too, so it coordinates.

    If I ever get a squib or a KB, I want my hand as far away from the magazine. I like my fingers. A KB is going to take the path of least resistance and go straight down the mag well.

    Didn't think about that. Usually when I'm shooting off the bench my hand sort of goes into that position naturally. :hs:

    I used to do it but after seeing videos of the magazine blowing out I decided I would do it the other way.

    I had a casing blow out the side, the path of lest resistance was actually to blow the slide cover off. :rofl:

    I thought it was an aftermarket barrel. I need to read that again. I wonder how the steel is on a Polytech?

    I didn't read it thoroughly maybe it was aftermarket :o I've not heard of any Poly's kB'n the usual thing to do with them seems to be to just upgrade the trigger and bolt.
