When I click on the link I get a warning from my anti virus program that the website is blocked due to a trojan virus threat. 

Just for info.
I stopped carrying the SIG 556R.  SIG changed models and couple/three times and stopped supporting it with parts.  So, I stopped supporting SIG.  Back to the tried/true AR15 Carbine.

I am interested to see if you get a reply M1A4ME. It seams they only post when advertising a new book but they have been doing it since 2012 so i assume there has not been an issue.
Will work for CZ pics! (including but not limited to all CZ clones)

Now I get a Trojan warning when I click on this thread.  Not planning on clicking on the link.  Even though I do have anti virus and Malwarebytes.

I thought the Greeks finished them off a few thousand years ago   ::)


I have bought a couple of their e-books (FN FAL and Savage 1907 (incl 1915,1917)).

Never had issues with them.
