Pennsylvania Firearm Owners Association
HB2011 and HB1243 Updates

So far, there hasn't been a 2nd Consideration vote on either of these bills. WE NEED TO KEEP UP THE PRESSURE, and continue to contact our legislators - ask them to tell House leadership to bring these bills to a vote! Ask them to vote YES on HB2011, and NO on the Universal Background Check amendment. In addition, the FOAC is requesting support for an amendment proposed to HB1243 (Mental Health Records for Firearms Purchases) that, if passed, will allow HB1243 to restore firearm rights to those who have recovered from a mental illness.

Default AR-15 Gas ring removal/installation?

I have new gas rings to install on my bolt, but I don't know how to remove the old ones or install the new ones. I have a set of 3 rings, and I also have one of the one piece Mcfarland design sets.

So,

1. How do I remove the old rings?
2. How do I install a one piece gas ring?
3. How do I install traditional gas rings?

1. Just hold one side with your thumb and then pry them out one at a time with a scribe, awl, etc and pull them back over the bolt tail.
2. Sorta like a keyring. Push it over the tail of the bolt and just sorta pry one end out a bit and get it into the gas ring groove then just spin it the rest of the way in.
3. Basically the same, go over the tail of the bolt and start one end in and work the rest of it around, repeat.

How easy do they snap or come out of shape? How often do they need replaced?

Just wondering?

As long as you have a scribe or something else small and pointy they should come out pretty easy. I'm not too sure about replacement by round count intervals though.
