  1. The BLM has proposed eliminating the SMALL MINER'S WAIVER for those of us who own ten (10) or fewer mining claims. This could be extremely costly and we are the only ones who can stop this. Here is the wording that I have cut-n-pasted from the BLM's information: "The proposal also increases the annual maintenance fees under the General Mining Law of 1872 and eliminates the fee exemption for miners holding ten or fewer mining claims." So, what we need to do is contact our members of congress and specifically ask that this be removed from the BLM budget. Get everyone you know who wants to save the small mining community to do the same. Explain why you are doing so. Write original letters, send them to your representative's district offices AND to their offices in DC. Call them if you can. This has to be stopped and only we can do it. The more it costs to hang onto our legitimate claims the less they are worth. While most of us cannot operate our claims full time, we should be able to keep them without paying more and more in fees. The small miner's waiver was created to protect the "little guy" and now the BLM is trying to get rid of it so we must protect ourselves and our most powerful weapon is the written and spoken word - directly to our elected officials. PM me for more if I can help in any way.

  2. Yes the SDC2300 is a hardwired coil because it is waterproof. It is an 8 inch coil. Auto ground balance and goes deep. I have a Gold Bug II and and SDC2300, I don't need any gold that is smaller than what the SDC2300 will find. The SDC2300 runs smooth and is darn near immune to mineralization.

    It stays in balance, unlike the Gold Bug II and it goes deep 2/10ths of a gram at 6 and 7 inches. I also like the fact that it uses rechargeable C cells or regular C alkalines in a pinch. Down side, the the SDC2300, has no discrimination.

    The Gold Bug is good for those really shallow areas that may have a lot of trash. Sitck that baby in iron mask and off you go.

    I have found a lot of gold with the SDC and I have seen a lot of gold found with it. Robin, Lucky Lundquist's wife was using an SDC at Rye Patch while we were all using GPZ7000's and she was kicking our ass ever day for 4 days straight.


    Here is a discussion regarding commander coil testing on the SDC. It's actually not "hard wired".

  5. Thinking of selling my DPMS Recon G2, bare bones it retails @ $1795.00 Im asking $3000 OBO. Nikon M-308 matched optics, Eotech L3 holographic sight, MagPul flip up sights, MX6 laser/flash light with remote switch, laser bore sight. Forward magpul grip, 4, 25 round magpul mags, 2, 10 round magpul mags with 5 round limiters, limbsaver recoil pad.

    Flash suppresser tool and uninstalled Whitt muzzle break. Original box. This is state of the art in the AR10 platform with all the best in aftermarket accessories.
  6. I don't want a suppressor, Im after a muzzle brake for a DPMS Recon.

    Been shooting 9" groups @ 1500 yards with a Tikka .300 WSM, Federal 180 grain, only possible for me to shoot more then a few rounds with a brake.

    1500 seems to be the limit of this factory ammo, @ a mile (1760 yards) it goes transsonic.

    Fun to play with, but I would never attempt to take game @ more then 600 yards.
