Resurrected Board

Around 5 years ago, I built a phpbb board with .50 BMG's as a main focus and other firearms discussions welcomed. A week or so after I'd finished it, and I had it hosted on my Synology NAS, Synology updated the phpbb files and switched to a different database. This was automatic and wiped out my for...

Why don't you just call Barrett? I had no problem with any Torx fasteners.

Re: BORs Update 2.2

I guess you've not purchased commercial software lately.

The installation CD comes with updated software and updated device drivers. It's kind of difficult to install drivers and create updated registry entries from a zip file.

Re: BORs Update 2.2

I emailed Barrett and got a quick reply: The 2.2 software has a few differences to the 2.1 software. The main thing added to v2.2 is Windows 10 compatibility, changed to the Advanced Tab where it makes calculations exactly like the BORS unit does, the addition of a Range Card Tab, and the most impor...

Re: BORs Update 2.2

What's the changes from 2.1 to 2.2? I wish there was a link to download it from.

Re: Magnetospeed V3 with M107

I've got a used, like new, V3 coming from eBay for my m82. I had to order the large brake adapter form Magnetospeed. I was surprised to find out the adapter was about 40% the cost of a complete V3.

Re: Range finders

I use a Newcon Optik LRB 3000 Pro. It's good to 3250 yards. It's probably a little north of $2200. You might find a used on eBay occasionally. They have a model that's good to 27,000 yards. It's around $24,000. Waiting on the lottery.

Re: This Forum is Hard to Read

It looks like ip.board charges $20 a month. Since my phpbb website bellied up - and not in the mood to fix it - I'm looking for something free. Cheap I am.

Agreed. It also needs a link to 'Mark all posts as read' so they'll disappear from the new posts page.

Re: BORS Enhancements for 2013

I just had my BORS upgraded and it was one of the original models. Somewhere along the way, the three set screws for the elevation adapter had been changed. Barrett nicely furnished me with the new set screws. They do need to be tightened with Loctite 222 added to the threads.

Re: weaponsban won't get less crime,but chances new inventions

OK, I've got to ask: Going back in history, say, to the 1940's. How did that unarmed stance work out for the Jewish folks in Germany, and other parts of Europe? I'm guessing they were the unauthorized personnel at the time, so said the government officials back then.
