Has anyone here tried a Stag Arms conversion kit? I know they have only been out for a month or two, but I figured I'd ask anyways because I'm getting one for my left-handed Stag for Christmas.

Is there anything you need to do to care for a conversion kit beyond cleaning it like you would the regular .223 bolt? I saw somewhere that you should run a mag of .223 ammo through your weapon after you are finished using the conversion kit. Is that good advice, or bullshit?

Thanks all.

If anyone has advice with successfully killing these buggers off, let me know (including piosen).

It's game fucking on now.
Drive a 2" x 2" x 6' stake into the ground leaving at least 5' above ground.

Open and empty a sardine can into a disposable bowl. Place aside for now.

Nail/screw empty sandine can to top of pole.

cut up sardines into 3 chunks each; add rat poison to mix, stir, let 'rest' for about 2 hours, then pour into can on top of pole.


Place a bucket of water 10-15 feet away from pole. Raccoon 'wash' their food before eating; expect to find dead raccoon around water bucket.

Skin dead raccoons and sell fur on eBay or to a fly fishing lure mfr....

This worked like a charm for my grandfather...


Win, win, win!!!!!

Shot number four in the attic last night.

Fed up with stalking him in the backyard, I heard him rustling about and popped up into the attic with a 22 and headshot him from 20 feet trying to hide from me in the insulation. I had hit him twice the week prior, and he had a scar in his stomach and a bloody left forepaw from two of the prior hits.

Nailed him just below the jaw with an exit would out his upper back.

Tough little bastards. Hate them.

Those things are called CB caps, and I LOVE them. Propellent will burn up completely in the barrel, making for an incredibly quiet shot...don't even need a suppressor.

Thinking bout this here...the 22 conversion kits DO NOT at all use the gas system in any manner what-so-ever. the drop in designs are "Blowback operated".

I tried my Cenier in a Ruger SR556 and it wouldn't fit with the gas piston system. Just FYI

Shot #5 last Monday night (dead and bagged for the trash) and #6 tonight. This is really starting to piss me off. I do not have a body for this one; I hit him center mass and he ran back into the house.

That could be a problem when the weather gets warmer...

Tell me about it. They breed in March-April.

I ditched the AR and am using a Marlin 22. The second-shot reliability with the AR wasn't worth it. I hold a Maglite as a light in my left hand.

Seriously thinking about mounting a Surefire with a low-power scope for this now-recurring mission.

Fuckers. Like I don't have anything better to do than sit in my backyard in the cold for hours on end at night waiting for them to poke a head out.....

How are they getting in? Can you seal off all the access points?

Right now some raccoon is saying "So no shit, there I was..."

Some how you are not convincing me of this. Did you look at the new stock for the Ruger 10/22? Has rails et al and the 10/22 is as about a reliable rimfire as you can buy.

Do you think these would kill a raccoon? I had trouble killing cats with them. They do work well on doves though.

However, I truly want one.

That gets a high score for looks!

I went with the "dump as much money into a 10/22 as possible" route...



Yes, the supressor is waiting on the ATF.

Dude......this is easy. It's sort of like the theory of protecting your house from a burglary. You dont have to have Ft Knox for a house, you just have to look like your place is far more trouble than your neighbors place. Burglars go for the easy pickings usually, yes? My advice would be to start infiltrationg the neighbors back yards at night and start throwing sardines in their yard and on their roof. Give the little bastards a better target than your place by providing them with free food at the neighbors house. Pretty soon the neighbors will be asking you to break out the guns to help them out.

Since my last post I have shot and killed at least three more. One I had to stalk in my attic with my daughter next to me holding a flashlight.

I got so sick of all this drama that I hired a dude to come and pull out two of my trees that I am confident were giving the raccoons access to my roof. That was a few months ago. Not a single infiltration since. It worked.

Until last night.

It's 2 AM and right outside the window to our master bedroom there is suddely a VERY loud scratching noise where one of these industrious little fuckers actually scaled up my downspout to get on my roof (see photo). It was so loud I almost shit my pants...running (falling out of bed onto my 200-pound dog that yelped) as I went straight for the home-defense shotgun in the closet. Scared me to death unitl I realized....it's another fucking raccoon.

I grabbed the only flashlight I could find in the ruckus; my daughter's little Barbie camping flashlight that is weak as shit. Went outside, shined up on the roof, and there she was. Raccoon number seven. I bang on the window and tell the wife to grab the 22 and a bigger flashlight and meet me in the backyard, which she does.

Imagine my fat ass in my boxer shorts with a 22 and the wife standing next to me in her pajamas with my SureFire holding it over her head. with her mumbling "you look like a psychopath out here in your underwear with a gun".

"Yeah, darling, you've said that before. Now light his ass up for Daddy."

Click, plink, dead. He rolls to the edge of the roof and dies right on the edge. It's still there. I am leaving it for a couple days so every raccoon in the neighborhood smells his rotting carcass in the sun. Kind of like the Romans when they used to behead their enemies and put their heads on stakes of territories they were trying to control....

Did I mention that I fucking hate raccoons?
