Thanks for the heads up on the Redhawks. I personally like the aesthetics of Smith and Wesson way better anyways. I hope they have the 629 in ~8inch barrel offerings simply because it's not like I plan on ever conceal carrying such a gun save maybe in the car.
>If you are thinking hunting, always a revolver because of inherent accuracy issues
Just like bolt action vs semi rifles, semi auto handguns can be just as accurate as anything else, it just takes a lot more effort to get it there.
>Outside of combat the real and perceived advantages of auto loaders diminish greatly, hunting with an auto loading pistol at longer ranges (then again handgun hunting at longer ranges is an ethical question in and of itself)
Depends on what you define as longer ranges. Most non-serious shooters consider 25 yards to be long range with a sidearm, whereas someone that knows their gun and ammo well and practices regularly wouldn't be uncomfortable at 100yds with a modern service caliber or magnum caliber. Unless you're Elmer Keith, then you shoot however far away you want with a single action .44mag and divine wind guides your round to the target every time.
>29/629 is all finish, blue iron vs. stainless steel.
Are you sure about that?
>Ruger triggers are just plain worse
Speaking as someone that generally despises most of Ruger's revolver design choices (Over complicated internals, push button release, shrouded instead of heavy barrels on the newer guns) The current production Redhawks have better out of box triggers than the 629's, as much as I hate to say it, same with the GP100's vs the 686's. Modern S&W is easier to do a trigger job on though.
What are some comfortable handguns and firearms in general for people with huge hands
Interestingly enough I have the same question. My fingers are very long.
>wanted to buy a cattleman ball and cap
>got to hold it
>literally felt like a tiny baby gun despite firing .45 lead balls
maybe I'm more suited for mortars, artillery and melee combat? (^:
Those little carry trays for the shells feel like they are made for handlets.
People always complain about the pull length of a CZ-75, especially from double action. I've never had a problem, despite not having huge hands for a man, but it might be something to look into. Double stack 1911's are also another good one people whine about being 'too big'. Revolver wise it wouldn't be too hard to fabricate a larger wood or even hard rubber/plastic grip, especially for an old cap and ball or single action army design.
Beretta 92 if you can get one. Big fat grip, nice and comfy to carry when I fly my UFO.
Blue iron in the rough term, not actually iron. Also about auto loaders, yes, big money and time and parts can do a lot for an auto loader, he seemed to be asking about off the rack in general guns and not a custom. If you want a combat style auto loader in 10mm that can shoot with an off the rack revolver, you better be talking to a gunsmith and not an internet anon gun board. An un-tuned bolt action rifle can do incredible things that an auto loader needs double or triple the money to compete with. You want a Glock that can compete with a $300 surplus Model 10 that's been shot a bajillion times you are going to have to put more than a little time in, takes parts and skill.
Anybody who wants to have a range gun for more serious handgun shooting should keep 50 yard bullseye in mind as a standard. If you are considering single shot accuracy as something you want to work on, 25 yards is a starting point and 50 yard is where the men start to diverge from the bois. Start getting good at that range and the choice of ammunition and gun will start to print and perhaps be noticeable. If you have a 7 MOA combination it will take a bench vice rest to guarantee bullseye hits on a competition target, something better to try to land in the center every time.
My newer S&W's have much heavier triggers that I don't like. Maybe Ruger is improving and they are closing in out of the box quality at some point. But, you are right, S&W is easier to clean and work on and even replace the trigger or do a trigger job on. Even if they ain't as good as they used to be, the general design is easier to improve upon or modify than others.
Man, it can't be as bad as the gas cans that let two people carry it at once. They're literally built for schoolgirls.
If I recall those guys were part of the leaf armies giant reservist corp and if you show anything right of Mr.Marx you're basically out of a job.
>.308 for sidearm, and .308 for submachine gun.
Just combine the two and call it a personal flamethrower.
>They're literally built for schoolgirls.
do you have the PSA poster that went something like?
>guns are bad for kids due to not having hands large enough, mortars build teamwork and maths
I wouldn't know anything about that, you'd likely know better as a fucking leaf, but with the commie bashing and floppy slotting remarks, I could have been fooled. Regardless, not spoiled for choice when it comes to Rhodesian kit, so it is what it is. I just know that new york times did a hit piece on them and a few quit for fear of it ruining their professional career, and given the current state of things, it's hard to blame them. Glad they are still up and running though, despite that.
From reading their faceberg shit and asking a friend being associated with evil right wingers is grounds for being removed. I don't really know shit about leafland other that its a fucking lawless and backwards.
I feel as though it could only improve it was lawless and backwards. Too many laws is Leafistan's problem I would assume. I pray for the day that the /k/ube will deliver us from this civilized hell, to let the sulfur of our barrel smoke choke the life from those who oppose the monolith. Until then, we must prepare the sword for kalki. Paramilitary death /k/ult when when?
RIA makes a breddy gud doublestack 10mm 1911, nice price too. Besides that your offerings for 10mm are kind of limited. Glawks and Sigs, Colt Delta Elites if you hate money, Dan Wesson 10mm 1911s if you hate money but like quality.
Yeah, there are durable commercial bags out there, but they aren't cheap if you don't want them to be heavy.
>former RLI runs the show
Hell yes, will have to check them out.
S&W definitely has the better quality, but god damn those gay-ass locks.
Second on the CZ-75 series, I have long fingers and it worked great for me. A doublestack Sig 226 in a fat caliber (.40 or above) works as well. If none of those are cutting it for you, consider getting some overmolded grips so that the gun fills your hand better.
>NY times did a hit piece on them
That's high fucking praise, I'll be sure to throw them some shekels now.
I'm fine with the weight of my surplus bag. I only use the commercial bag when I'm in a tent camping with people that refuse to camp without all the modern comforts of living.
>5.45 and dies brass exists
>No bullets or even casts for bullets I can find
Even if I got all that shit, how viable would non-steel core 52 gr 5.45 be?
On a semi-related note, are tantals worth the money the are going for now?
Brass does not exist. Neither do bullets.
The dies exist, and there's a particular caliber … .221 fireball? That can mostly be worked into shape but it's enough different that it splits on the second reload, so online sources say.
The bullets are .221; 556 bullets are .224; if you just shove those in, you'll be swaging every bullets with your barrel, which I shouldn't have to tell you will wreak hell with … well, everything. But accuracy and barrel life for starters.
I have a 5.45 barrel too … I'd love to reload it, but this side of the iron curtain, it just can't be done. Let us know if you find differently of course!
Going to need a source for this gloriousness.
No import AK is worth the absurd prices they're going for now. It's gotten to the point that if you want a "good" 74, you may as well just get a high-end custom order made in the states, by Ordinance, Krebs, or similar; they're still slightly more expensive but the cost difference is way smaller than the quality difference for the time being.
>Brass does not exist.
I've seen it out there. Don't remember what site, and it was like a dollar a case, but someone's custom making it.
Maybe he's building an AR? My 5.45 is an AR. Just, mind the matching bolt, as there are two "standards" out they and they're not interchangeable.
>formed from a more readily available case
It won't hold up; it's not 5.45.
STOP POSTING MARXISM-INFECTED WHORES RIGHT NOW
Hmm? If the proper forming dies were used and the proper brass was started with, its entirely possible the brass is usable, brass forming is a long standing tradition in reloading, especially with obsolete or extremely obsolescent cartridges. Keep in mind cartridges like 25-06 and 35 Whelen were wildcats long before becoming standard cartridges. With the right tools, dies, know how, it can be done safely. The process may shorten the life span some in theory, but they should hold up a few reloads. I'd be more concerned with looser tolerances in an autoloader shortening case life or over aggressive resizing bigger threats.
I didn't want to make a hunting thread so I'm posting here.
I have not hunted in well over a decade when I was a child with my father. But recently I've been heavily into firearms and want to shoot at more than just paper. I don't care for deer meat so I don't want to hunt deer. But coyotes are a real problem in my area, Northwest Pennsylvania. Figured I could do my part to reduce the population and maybe try my hand at tanning and leather working.
What are the best rounds for small game hunting? And what are good brands or outlets to get good gear from? Not looking to spend an exorbitant amount on clothes but I don't want to go out there in jeans and a jacket. Need some kind of concealment, right.
>I don't care for deer meat so I don't want to hunt deer. But coyotes are a real problem in my area, Northwest Pennsylvania.
I've used an AR15 to hunt coyotes in the midwest, so I think one should work fine for you.
>What are the best rounds for small game hunting?
.223 should be fine if you're not going for anything bigger than a whitetail and aren't planning on going past 300m
>And what are good brands or outlets to get good gear from?
Midwayusa.com has a lot of clothing on sale if you don't want to go to a local store and try stuff on.
I planned to use my are built. Sorry I should have clarified. I meant to get specific about which grain and tip would be best. I assume hollow points would be a bad idea. My goal here to is to maximize fur quality. I plan to make things and learn how to leatherwork. But my first kill needs to be perfect. Either gonna hang it or make a radical as fuck scarf.
Also thanks I'll check out Midway. Just get what has decent materials or what? I have wool liners and stuff I'm basically looking/asking about quality for price options.
Sorry for auto correct. More like auto eject yourself amirite.
>I planned to use the AR I built. 18" 1/7 twist melonite lined I believe. It's not chrome I know that
>I meant to get specific about which grain and tip would be best. I assume hollow points would be a bad idea
Hunting bullets are usually heavier and are expanding(HP/SP), though use of hard cast bullets is not uncommon. If you want to preserve the skin of the animal these are probably the way to go, but don't use the fucking 556 for deer - it requires better shot placement and can fuck all your materials real good. Best choice would be slow and heavy hard cast bullets like 45-70, though anything not extreme velocity dependent will do so feel free to pick 308. Unless you really want to add as many variables to your first try as you can, i recommend to just pick some commercial hard cast hunting ammo like buffalo bore. Or be even less autistic and ask some actual hunters or at least gun shop owner you'll be buying the ammo from for advice instead of relying on info on anonymous imageboard.
I'm hunting coyote, and gathering information from multiple sources. Geeeez. A store owner or single Hunter is going to give me as much information and bias as you are.
k, then soft points from ar would be fine, less velocity dependent rounds might be better, as mentioned above. Pick a varmint load and you're good to go. If you want it to be "perfect", shoot it first to see how it flies and adjust the sights and keep the distance short, though don't expect it all to go that way, do not build plans around that and save yourself from pain of failed expectations - you can always try again, best get good results than terrible because you strived for perfect.
Depends on how urbanized they are you might actually have to set up a bait pile/blind. As what to shoot them with, use whatever they're fucking yotes.
Lee custom makes 5.45 dies.
Think more like Russia, laws but people selectively choose to follow them.
Do we know of any streloks that have been v&? What were they arrested for, and what was the outcome?
No one who does or has done illegal shit is going to post about it on an imageboard.
I'm not relying on whoever got arrested just coming on here and telling me. There are secondary and tertiary sources of information.
Only ones I can think of are those who went to mess with some blm people and got arrested after they defended themselves
An Ausfellow here had spent some time in a walled prison for making shit that goes boom. Got a lighter sentence due to no evidence of malicious intent with his chemistry fun.
Do all 8mm 98 pattern mauser use the same firing pin? I need to replace the firing pin on my Turkish mauser and the closest thing I can get to a replacement atm is a m48 firing pin.
If its a Model 38 Turkish homebrew with the long action but small ring , you should be able to fit a std. 98 pin. If is a updated 1903 Turk then probably not.
Anyone have any experience with https://russianarmyshop.eu ? Trying to work out if they are a reputable site or not.
Never heard of them. There is https://grey-shop.ru/ though, which some UK anon recommended to me.
Greyshop is legit, I got a bunch of IRPs from them and they were pretty fast to boot.
Thanks for all the feedback, you guys are great. I've decided to go with several of your suggestions. Here's my updated but still WIP build sheet. I'm still considering various triggers and lower parts.
>Aero complete uppers
Convenient but I want a 20" barrel with 1/8 twist.
>Armaspec SRS Recoil Spring, 5.6oz
I like it, but is H3 the best choice for what I'm doing? I'll have to read up on buffer weights.
>Strike Industries Receiver Extension
Yeah that's much better than what I had picked.
>Strike industries stock
They look nice, but I'm upping my weight limit to 6.5lbs and going with a Magpul PRS.
>Are you committed to >6lb weight?
I've upped it to 6.5lbs dry but I will go no further if at all possible.
>Gas tubes don't usually cost that much.
I'm seeing prices ranging from $9-$20. At what point am I getting ripped off or is a gas tube a gas tube is a gas tube?
>Radian charging handles go on sale pretty often for ~$65-70
Yeah I'll probably go with a normal one, it's not set in stone
>Grab a MBT trigger from LaRue tactical; they're pretty cheap right now and from what I've heard are decent.
I'll go with that for now. I'm still looking but that's a pretty good deal.
>Do you want to use a regular A2 flash hider? What sight setup do you intend on using?
Some ricer shit that behaves like an A2 purely for aesthetic purposes. Don't try to convince me otherwise.
>Norgon ambi mag release or the Master of Arms Volkscatch
$100+ for a mag release might be a bit much for me to justify, but I'll consider them if I can't find anything comparable.
>Faxon barrel + Gas block combo
This is perfect, thank you for showing me this
>Raptors are good, but imo the Sintercore Tripwire is even better. Cheaper, too.
muh weight reduction
>STAY THE FUCK AWAY FROM HERA ARMS
You're right, I will. I just wanted that spacegun aesthetic. I handled one recently and I'd be better off bubba'ing a nerf gun shell for a stock, the thing was so flimsy.
Undeniably good for low weight but I'd have to make too many cuts elsewhere
>Pls explain charging handle meme
Weight reduction :^)
>Nigger just get an anderson, only like 4 companies do the forgings
Metallurgy isn't the only factor to consider here. Also the matching Aero parts will look nice.
>$120 for a shitty thumbhole stock with bad reviews
Yeah it was stupid idea, so instead I'm going with a $200 stock with rave reviews
>Wasting all this money on bullshit only to cheap out on a meme-coated budget BCG
Fine I'll go with an extravagant meme-coated budget BCG to round things out
>$100 for a buffer tube
Yeah that was dumb
>Someones been watching too much inrange, what benefit are you expecting out of this?
Guilty, and I just prefer the to have the buffer system be all one part and not reliant on a tiny retention pin. Also, no sproing. I just don't like sproing
>Meme charging handle For what reason?
Weight reduction :^)
>Overall: Consumerist Paypig memegun/10
Guilty again, but it'll still be a damn nice rifle
>Why are you getting the nut? Isn't the whole point of the M4E1 upper that Aero handguards will attach directly to the upper?
I believe it comes with the nut regardless, I'll have to double check if I even need it.
And I just noticed that i fucked up my totals.
>but is H3 the best choice for what I'm doing
You'll do just fine with the regular buffer.
>$100+ for a mag release might be a bit much for me to justify, but I'll consider them if I can't find anything comparable.
Yeah, it's not really necessary, especially if you're not disabled with left-handedness.
>muh weight reduction
Sintercores are also lighter (you might be interested in this: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1I6Qb6kAJjChEJ56qhznv2291c5UHRDyNXuSXGObumqM/edit#gid=2033901686). However the owner pulled them from his website to rework the design, so if you're buying this shit in stages you might want to put the charging handle on the back burner so you have a ful breadth of options when the time comes.
>Undeniably good for low weight but I'd have to make too many cuts elsewhere
Care to explain this? You're already going for a $200 stock, paying $230 for a stock that's also a buffer tube might actually save you money. Not to mention weight, and cool points–if you want to make an ultralightweight paypig meme rifle, nothing gives you the spacegun aesthetic like a CF stock, pic related.
>I believe it comes with the nut regardless, I'll have to double check if I even need it.
IIRC when I was looking at Aero's handguard on their website, they had a menu option to select whether you get the nut for "regular" uppers or the M4E1 upper.
Modern AR barrels are well-enough constructed that even a lightweight profile 20" can achieve a little over 1 MOA with a good shooter and bolt. So if you want a lightweight rifle that's meant to shoot 5.56 the way it's meant to be shot, out of 20" of barrel, it's a good choice.
I feel like a set of weights would be cheaper than a low-weight build at this point.
Thinking of getting a new complete upper for my AR.
Any decent ones with 20 inch barrels that won't cost too much? Don't want to get something that cost more than how much I got and put it together for. ~$450
Also, do you need a different buffer assembly if you're going from a 16 inch to 20 inch? Or is that only if you go from 16 to 12 or less?
Does anyone have the documentary of the midlife crisis dads joining a PMC in Afghanistan and they work with the Islamic version of Mr. Assburger.
Any opinions on this picture?
No, but I do have this screenshot. It's probably in the archive.
Posted earlier in the thread: https://www.aeroprecisionusa.com/m4e1-556-20in-rifle-complete-upper
>Don't want to get something that cost more than how much I got and put it together for
Good luck, you generally pay a slight premium for convenience and labor. The difference is usually less than what it costs to get the tools you need, though, so if you don't plan to have more than one AR it's still a good deal.
>only on person has hearing protection
>no bags or load bearing equipment
>only one sidearm
>only three people have hand protection
>nobody has head protection

>total failure to meet grooming standards
Honestly, this reminds me of the dumb photos I'd take with friends as cadets. The kneeling fag with the glasses looks like he at least put some thought into killing people once, so I rate them 2/10. If this was an attempt to make a paramilitary or otherwise militant organization look imposing, they failed.

Here you are gentlemen, in all of their retard glory. I feel like we could do a better job, with our lust for war alone.
Where should I buy a Rhodesian flag?
I'm aware of them but they're currently out of stock. I figured someone here might know where I can find one for the best price.
What's a good youth stock for a Mossberg 500/590 that doesn't cost a quarter of the gun?
Why can't you cut down a regular wooden one?
Rhodesiawassuper has em.
Why didn't spoon tip rounds catch on?
They don't offer that much beyond good yawing which could be useful but is less efficient than fragmentation or expansion. It could be used to allow fragmenting bullets like M855 to yaw and actually fragment but it's not done because army is stupid. Other than that, there is a good example of non-fragmenting tumbling round - 5.45x39mm with 7N6 bullet - it has empty space in the tip under the jacket that compresses when hitting the target and allowing the bullet to tumble. It performed pretty well but was replaced by an "enhanced penetration" round for different reasons. I don't know how spoon tip bullet shape might affect their flight but if it does it might be just another disadvantage. It might also be more difficult(or just different for current industry) to machine with common copper-jacketed bullets. H&K does have such bullets for their MP7 though, but that's probably because of "expanding ammo" prohibition to the militarizes that would be the only ones who could find it proper use but they are military so just laugh.
So, TL;DR: tumbling is good but soft point is better so why both.
Are type 1/2/3 garand parts interchangeable? If not which is a best?
What the hell PMC takes retards like this, will they take my fat ass, and how do I contact them if so? Just knowing how to operate an AK seems to put me at a skill level above most of these boomers.
>not costing a quarter of what the gun does
I sense that Western normalfags really, really love nofuns as if it's "sensible and progressive", and their form of "patriotism" is centered around leftist narratives like accepting rapefugees, multiculturalism, homosexuality and feminism. Other times they'll just say gun control is "good" because having lax gun rights is a "gun-toting and backwards American thing to do", other times equating it to "muh racism" and "muh school shootings". Worst case scenario would be the Canadian normalfags and the British normalfags in capital cities, they blatantly love liberalism and leftism to a T, to the point were they think the US population and US politics is majority "right wing and backwards racist". Why did (((they))) do this, again? (((They))) used (((American media)))) as a means to push it into the West but the lemmings fell for it. Now said lemmings are implying as if gun control narratives aren't common in US politics.
Pic related, but it's inaccurate. I highly doubt Australia is still 94% White considering the shitshow that is modern politics today.
>Gun Ownership: 0%
Correct. Gun ownership has been on the rise, and there are at least 14.5 civilian-owned firearms per 100 people. That isn't counting the further estimated 250,000 illegal firearms circulating in the country.
Unfortunately, the contractor rush has subsided. Security contractors still work in Iraq and Afghanistan like that British company which just got their building raided by the Taliban, but in nowhere near the amount of numbers.
>That isn't counting the further estimated 250,000 illegal firearms circulating in the country.
So much for "If we ban firearms from citizens, we will all be safe and sound in our nation, unlike those trigger-happy racist bigots.". When will (((they))) learn? No seriously, it's bad enough that lemmings like these exist among people of European ethnicity. I mean, how is (((gun control))) a part of Europeanism in any way? It reeks of Jewish "modern New Yorker" bullshit, that's what I think. AIPAC politicians support it and yet leftists who claim to "hate Israel and Zionism" (only because of "Muh Israeli Jews are not real Jews, they are White racist colonialists!!!") also support it.
Funnily enough, the most common argument used to support the legislation in Australia is that gun-related suicides and homicides decreased, which they did, but knife-related homicides and hangings compensated for that decline. Hell, it hasn't even stopped mass shootings, as we've had several of those in the past few years as well (Brighton Siege, Osmington, Lindt Cafe Siege, Wedderburn, Hunt family murders, etc.) and since there's almost no way they could make the legislation stricter in terms of who can own a gun, and how it's used, stored and transported, they're now trying to limit magazines sizes (5> bullet/shell limit) and get rid of lever-action shotguns and pump-action rifles. It's even more galling because you're allowed to own semiautomatic rifles in New Zealand and they don't have a problem with firearms whatsoever, while Sudanese, Nigerians, Somalis and biker gangs are running around Melbourne and Sydney with slamfires, black market handguns and homemade SMGs.
Can I hypothetically use a 5/8" Lock washer in place of a crush washer?
You can hypothetically do anything you want. Depending on the exact use it might go mechanically pearshaped though.
Pearshaped? I'm assuming you mean it'll malform somehow. I'll just have to order crush washers.
Yes, JP and other companies actually sell a lock washer for this exact purpose, so that you can easily time muzzle devices, and replace them without getting a new crush washer.
Pear-shaped is a catchall idiom for malfunction or fuck up. I think >>632344 was just saying that, in general, going outside of specs or doing something the manufacturer didn't intend can cause fuckups on firearms, as that potential exists for any mechanical device. However, as the only thing a lock nut/crush wahser does is time the threads of a muzzle device, you're not risking any kind of major mechanical failure.
Nevermind, I see you said lock washer and not lock nut, which is what I meant when talking about JP's stuff. I'm less certain about the lock washer (isn't the crush washer technically a type of lock washer?), aren't you losing the ability to time the muzzle device in the desired torque range?
I smushed a lock washer under my AR's flash hider when I was putting it together. I think my crush washer was a lemon, because it just wasn't crushing.
You may have had it on the wrong direction.
What would be the best scope to put on an AR-10? I was thinking and SWFA SS fixed 10x42.
I've heard of the reverse recoil impulse on semi-auto rifles and airguns and want something that can withstand it for a while.
What's your price ranged? You can go stupidly high on optic price. You could go several thousand dollars on a thermal optic or a few hundred on a vortex/primary arms
There could be a lot of different answers to that, depending on your price range and what you want to do with it. Although a fixed 10 power wouldn't be my first answer for any of those, any particular reason you suggested that once?
the .308 is good for longer range. Also being longer to accommodate a bigger cartridge, it's got some real estate to work with.
Here's something I saw recently. It's on Amazon so take this offer with a grain of salt, maybe some cayenne for flavor, but
No idea who that is. It has a 50mm front for less light lost, and a first-focal-plane reticle so the holdover marks have the same end-result meaning regardless of zoom level.
>that file name
It looks more like a scrotum. Did you make the Grinch a eunuch, you sick bastard?
Are HK style diopter sights usually adjusted for range in combat or are the sights left on a certain setting and guessing used for compensation?
Anyone have the info for the socal meet up? I thought I capped the info but I guess not.
What's that thing above the charging handle and in front of the rear sight on an aks-74u?

>MK6 helmets are useless against 9mm 155grain
It's an overtravel stop, since the AKSU-74 has a hinged, not removable, top cover.
Ah, that wonderful British tradition of quality military-issue gear….
It goes hand-in-hand with everything else they have done since 1914…
Depends on the kind of combat you are in. At longer ranges with low intensity you will have enough time to adjust and aim properly.
If the enemy is right on top of you, you use your gun instead of fiddling around with it.
It's an old as fuck nylon helmet, what do you expect?
>the .308 is good for longer range.
Not really, It's anemic past 500 yards IMO and that's as far as I plan on shooting it.
I never should have asked here tbh, you didn't even answer my question.
Does Ruger or S&W make the better $500 black assault rifle of rapedeath and dead niggers?
They're basically the same from what I remember, just pick the one with your favorite gimmicks.
It's supposed to be kevlar or similar, and at least splinter-proof, and it's only from the late 80's ffs. Unless you left it out in the desert sun that whole time, it should at least stop 9mm.
Will it be any good or a complete failure?
Does anyone have a download/torrent/whatever of Magpul Dynamics Art of the Precision Rifle? Or can you recommend other instructional videos?
Could bike infantry be combined with paratroopers (men jumping from planes with bikes)? Has anyone done it?
Why paradrop bikes when you can paradrop IFVs and Churches?
How does the Romanian SKS compare to the East German SKS? Also out of the warsaw pact countries what surplus is considered cheap?
East German SKSs are the highest quality variants by a significant margin, and also the most rare and expensive. They're basically unicorns. Romy SKSs aren't bad quality, no worse than Russian ones, but are also pretty uncommon. There's no such thing as cheap surplus anywhere these days, I'm afraid.
The US has tried it, although since you don't hear much about it it probably wasn't as effective as conventional means of deploying paratroopers.
>leave for a week

I got my swede mauser for $35.
Nobody wants them here.
I would have thought we'd gain a lot more since halfchan is leaking every few weeks and post quality consistently drops with their arrival.
You guys aren't as commercialized, though, so it's understandable.
Our price hike in milsurp also dates back to the great merchant handwringing of the 2008 election where absolutely everything went up in price. Had it not been for that, or possible other "scares" we'd still have $70 Mosins, $300 crap AKs, and sub-$500 German Mausers.
I realize it can't be that feasible since nobody is doing it, but what would it take to enable full auto fire from a 10/22? Could it be made open bolt with a fixed firing pin and custom sear?
If I recall, you need to mill out a bit of the receiver, modify the trigger group for a f/a sear. There was a pdf on it ages ago, I can't find it right now.

I got three PDFs for you.
How do impact grenades compare to regular grenades?
I take you want to ask if grenades with impact fuses are deployed in a significantly different manner compared to grenades with timed fuses. I can tell you this much: before ww2 the Hungarian army developed the 36M Vécsey kézigránát, which had a simple impact fuse. It was perfect for close quarter battles, because it instantly blew up, giving the enemy no chance to react. And it couldn't roll back from hills, which is also a positive. The problem is that they were dangerous in forests, where they could detonate upon hiting a branch. And they were useless if you couldn't throw them with enough force to activate the timer, e.g. you couldn't just let them drop from a building, or into an open hatch of a tank. For this reason they developed the 42M Vécsey grenade, which had a timed fuse. They were used together, and the soldier had to think about which one was better for a given situation. But most of the time either works, so it's really not that much of a difference.
Italians used them until '90 so i guess they cant be that bad
I'm not linking the PDF directly but here's the murdercube archive there's 2 how to on there I think
Quite sometime ago we had a thread about the ideal political system (the canadian parliamentary gangbang thread) which is where I think these phone screencaps are from. Do you have any suggestions for further reading in English on Hungarian Feudalism? It reminds me quite a bit of Dune.
It gets better.
>The popes and the kings are constantly at each other's throats about who has the right to nominate bishops in a given realm.
>The kings think it is their right to decide since it is their realm and their land.
>Rome thinks it is their decision since all power comes from God, so the Church has the final say
>Even emperors are excomunicated because of these power struggles
>Excommunication in medieval times is a very serious thing
>Meanwhile the Árpád dynasty of Hungary freely practices its right to nominate church officals, Rome doesn't really mind
The system worked because the Árpáds had a lot of prestige. Seven members of the dynasty were either canonized as saints or beatified and two of them are recognized as saints by the Orthodox Church. It's one thing to rebel against a king, but to rebel against someone who is a descendant of Attila AND a Charlemagne-esque Christian paladin monarch is the kind of different matter that can get you sliced into four parts that were sent to the for corners of the realm to remind all about the price of treason. This literally happened. Also, an unusually high number of the Árpáds died in battle; whenever there was a war, the king was in the thick of it.
The choice was either being ruled by a harsh, but ultimately benevolent king or being seriously, utterly fucked up by him. And so, the kingdom endured. When you picture an Árpád king, imagine the mixture of King Arthur and Attila the Hun.
is hunting with slugs the cheapest option for hunting in regards to ammo? I want to get into hunting and I want something big thats also cheap
should've mentioned boar and deer are whats near me
Interesting. I desire to know the answer to this as well. Also to add on to this question, do you need to get a rifled barrel for the shotgun you are using? Pic semi-related
I'm assuming a rifled barrel is cheaper in the long run since rifled slugs appear to be more expensive. I don't know what slugs are good for hunting though
cause I'm looking for something like the ultra slug hunter which apparently is out of stock everywhere and ammo to go with it. That's only if it's a cheap yet practical option
>Do you have any suggestions for further reading in English on Hungarian Feudalism?
I wish, but this is something that even most Hungarian historians ignore, as they are usually too caught up in a few centuries to see the greater picture. The best I can do is to recommend three Hungarian books:
>Györffy György: István király és műve
This was written in the 1980s, but it's still the best introduction to the age of king Stephen, the creator of this system. You get to to learn how and why an alliance of Eurasian nomads built a Christian kingdom that.
>the works of Joó Tibor
Written in the 1930s, they have bits of unfounded theories here and there, but they give you a rather unique perspective that was unfortunately completely forgotten once commies got into power.
Rifled barrels are memery of the fuckiest order. You can only shoot Sabot slugs through them, which are subcaliber and pricey as fuck. Proper rifled slugs to be shot out of a cylinder bore smoothbore can be had for .75-1.25$ a round depending on whether you're willing to order online or have to buy in a store. Rifled slugs out of a proper shotgun are a solid 50-75yd stopper.
If you're looking for just the cheapest possible per round to put meat in the freezer handloaded with handcast lead in a .357 or .44mag, or factory 7.62x39 soft points are all going to be .30cpr or less.
You do understand that the "rifling" on a "rifled" slug is there so the slug can swage itself through a choke, and that it does NOT impart any spin on the projectile, right?
Using recycled lead, one can kill a deer with a hand cast bullet for $0.10 a piece. I used a bullet I cast myself for deer, loaded round was $0.16 a piece, with big 330 grain bullet and 1,720 fps average and big boi 2,200 ft.lbs. of energy. Some people will try to go with a lighter load and save a few more cents. Smaller the deer, the less power/bullet you might want. Then again, does a $0.50 factory bullet in 308 become that much of a cost burden considering everything all in all?
It doesn't seem he implied that the rifled slugs spun and were super accurate due to spin. He just stated that they were good enough for 80- yards deer hunting, which they are if you can get a foster slug that works with your gun, and that if you don't hunt any further than that is a rifled barrel and sabot slug REALLY that superior? There is a reason why rifled foster slugs still exist and persist despite high end sabot slugs and high quality rifled shotgun barrels.
Are there any good sources about early 20th century european gun laws? One question I'm wanting an answer to is if any other european countries had better gun laws than Germany post '38 pre '45.
Also, do any current european countries have better gun laws than the aforementioned period?
Hey /k/, I recently bought a Howa 1500 chambered in .223 as a cheap target shooting rifle, but a family friend wants me to go varmint shooting hares and foxes on their property. I was wondering, is it worth spending a few extra cents per cartridge to buy .204 180 AUD per 100 rounds, compared to 150 AUD for .223 and should I bother installing a floorplate so I can fit magazines on it? It would double the capacity, but it would also cost a couple hundred dollars with the magazines.
You do understand that the only reason sabot slugs exist is retarded states that forbid rifle hunting? A rifled barrel slug gun is like a bump stock or a pistol 'brace', it's designed to skirt rules put in place by retarded politicians, it's objectively inferior to anything purpose built for the same role.
I'm kind of confused. .204 Ruger and .223 Remington share a case, but are different projectile sizes. If you can get it to chamber, shooting a .204 down a ,223 bore means the projectile won't hit the rifling, so it won't stabilize nor spin, as well as letting powder blowby the bullet itself, leading to an inaccurate and underpowered projectile.
>should I bother installing a floorplate so I can fit magazines on it? It would double the capacity, but it would also cost a couple hundred dollars with the magazines
Does Magpul import? They do fairly cheap AICS pattern mags now.
>I'm kind of confused.
I have a Remington 700 chambered in .204, from when I first got my license and nearly bankrupted myself on funs, but the question was more about which would be a superior calibre for varmint hunting. On paper, the .204 seems like a superior round, but I'm not sure if it's worth the extra money.
>Does Magpul import?
Doing private imports is kind of a nightmare, and everything firearm-related is heavily taxed in Australia, so cheap is pretty relative.
> and should I bother installing a floorplate so I can fit magazines on it?
I personally don't see the utility. With a bolt action varmint rifle, you'd be lucky to get a follow up shot anyway, so it's not like capacity matters all that much. Not unless it's a convenience thing, but I'd just as soon carry loose rounds and single load.
.223 is fine on those targets. If you really want to have fun find something in .22-250.
How much of a mess was the austro-hungarian army during ww1?
I decided to put the Y style straps on my Czech M85 backpack but dont know what this hook goes to,any ideas?
It's designed to be used with a belt you wear around your jacket. You hook it to that.
Thanks breh,I suspected it would be for some kind of belt,any Idea what kind/model though?
That I do not know, sorry. But if it's like the Czech m60 or the NVA sturmgepäck it should work with any waist belt.
I'll just use it as a backpack like this for now(the Y-straps are way more comfy than the stock ones).I'll probably just leave the "belt hook" dangling or just put a bit of tape on it to stop it from moving
About to pull the trigger on an FNS-9C, is there any thing bad about FNH USA as a company I should know about? Any shitty dealings or bad business practices? All I've heard so far is that their customer service kinda sucks, but that's okay.
This shit is as oversimplifying as that image trying to prove Northern Europeans being the most important nations in the world by counting only post-1400 personalities.
They're alright as companies go. The parent company in Belgium has been nationalized, whether that's good or bad is up to you. Aside from that, just keep in mind that as a civilian customer you're last in line after a whole bunch of militaries and police forces. Like you already pointed out, that implies bad customer service, and if you ever need to buy replacement parts while they're fulfilling a contract, good luck.
Why do people think German weapons are good when all they do is take credit for the work of others?
You boys got the CETME from Mauser engineers who designed the StG 45 during WW2 for Germany as the forerunner, when the Germans selected the G3 they were just getting their own design back. The first bolt action, the needle gun, came from Germany, almost everyone copied the Mauser design globally and even today its the standard for bolt action rifle design. Germans built the first submachine guns during WW1. Who came up with the all around machine gun in the MG34 and MG42? How many nations still use the MG3 today?
Credit for the work of others? Other than the fact they are using Eugene "Retard" Stoner's AR design, ONLY TO WIN US MILITARY CONTRACTS, for their latest batch of rifles, please elaborate who the Germans just don't invent any guns on their own?
B-but Cei Rigotto… Muh OVP 1918… You suck! I'm taking my Bushmaster PMV and Owen gun and going home!
>Eugene "Retard" Stoner
I don't like the AR-15 either, but the AR-18 is a pretty good system, and the Stoner 63 is a great idea that simply didn't work out so well. Besides, we don't know who did what on those weapons, so praising or cursing him, and only him for the AR-15 is the truly retarded thing to do.
Just acting in kind with the kinds of attitudes and belligerent mannerisms of those who threw every single firearm overboard because "muh Murrican" AR-15 is best gun because Whizz kids say so. AR-15 isn't the worst, but the way its come to success is. Also I do like the AR-18 better, but don't say that because that contradicts the decisions made by the boys in the office.
Also the modern "gun culture" that tries to deify people. Stoner and Kalashnikov were brilliant engineers, but there is no reason for some of these modern sub cults to praise them the way they do. You are further right, teams of engineers built many of the things we love, to give credit to one or two Superstars is ridiculous.
Think of such obtuse measures as tilling up hardened ground so that reason may soak in.
They've been using the AR-18 bolt for everything since the G36.
Germany's too poor to make anything unique.
>Germany's too poor to make anything unique
>what is the G11
Krauts have more than their share of problems, but don't lack in either money or ingenuity. The issue is kraut autism means that ingenuity can never be paired with practicality. Instead, it exclusively produces overdesigned monuments to the 'tism that more resembles a Rube Goldberg machine than a real machine.
Which design do you like more: AR18 or FN FNC?
>>what is the G11
Too expensive to produce in large quantities, as Germany is too poor.
>just watched Demolition Man today
Is this the fucking phaser gun?
After the wall fell the BDR had the choice of completely rebuilding east german infrastructure and civil facilities from the ground up, or getting the G11 to a point they could mass produce it. They chose the less expensive option.
And Germany's still too poor to afford even the new, cheap-o HK rifle.
Are there any revolvers chambered in bottle necked pistol cartridges?
The only one that comes to mind is the BFR chambered in .30-30 Winchester.
Apart from that it's not the most efficient to produce due to consistent headspace being tricky so they're very few and far between.
Traitors mean americans who fucking hate americans, and there's a lot of them here, even on /k/.
And what fucking repercussion? I don't see americans taking their guns to kill the govt, or kill Trump. They just shitpost on the internet.
I have no loyalty to Trump and I call him out of his anti-gun bullshit on the regular, what makes me mad is that kikes will never acknowledge his good deeds, and will actively try turning his good deeds into bad via propaganda campaign.
>Traitors mean americans who fucking hate americans
I can hate people who are considered americans by teh government and be a patriot I don't consider commies to be American
That's the whole point and why the US was doomed the very moment it gave up its Angl-American European Christian identity. it was over. The biggest problem of the big tent is that when there is enough diversity there is no identity and no one REALLY belongs. Keep opening up the values and one day there is no identity, you get bullshit like "Fresh off the boat immigrants are the Most American Americans in existence" (an idea many US political machines pushed since the early 1800's pitting new European immigrants against old ones), bullshit like "Unions built the country, labor is America", "Progressivism came from America and from New England, it is the truest American movement, you aren't American if you aren't of this political way of thinking", "Socialism is American because of unions and progressivism", ect. Also the myth o the melting pot and the most American thing there is is self division and internal conflict.
Therefore one day you get people saying that illegal alien Alejandro is the truest American, a melting pot person yearning to breathe free in land of opportunity wanting to assimilate and bring blessed diversity somehow at the same time, destroy un-American racism (even though the same people who say the melting pot is American claim America is a racist country), and the old European stock that turned the iwlderness into a first world superpower are racist anti-Americans.
That's why there is real hope for Europe, if the nations of Europe come tot heir senses they may throw out the foreign invaders and reclaim their homelands and maintain their nation. America, the US has little left of its identity, has no nationhood or even the scarps of nationhood it once had, once it begins to fall apart and fail nothing will fix it short of very drastic hardcore actions.
Hating other "Americans' gets easy when it becomes a hollow label with no meaning slapped on everyone and everything, especially anti-American things that are trying to ironically destroy what was the strongest sense of Americanism.
And I don't mean those commie fucks, I mean americans, red-blooded americans, and those anti-americans hate them too.
Christianity is a fucking plague of the world, but the american identity is still a thing, it needs to be protected.
.256 win mag and .22 rem jet. Both basically a .38/.357 case necked down. Somewhat popular for a few years back in the late 60's early 70's. S&W made the model 53 in .22 rem jet, and Ruger made a single shot 'revolver' based on the blackhawk in .256, and I believe a tiny amount of actual blackhawk's chambered as well.
And I ask again, how exactly do I destroy threads? Explain to me.
And trivial shit? Withdrawing troops from Afghanistan and Syria are trivial shit? Holy shit.
And no, I have never ever attacked people for pointing out the harmful things Trump did.
>YOU and the likes of YOU are the reasons the bumpstock ban happened
What in the holy of fuck, how is that even possible?
I have no problem with you being anti-Trump, but if you hate everyday red-blooded americans, then there's no hope for you.
>When will the northen gooks finalize the solutions on you, our miscreation?
Holy shit, this faggot thinks he created South Vietnam, and nope, the faggots in the North are too poor for that shit.

>America is a failed shithole that fucked over the world and that's in desperate need of a nuclear war so it can die with whatever table scraps of dignity it has left.

It's clearly as hell that the now common narrative is hatred against America, it's not the jews anymore, just America.
Fuck that blackpill down your threat.
You are trying to goad people into killing white instead of jews.
Getting ready to pull the trigger on a cheap AR, should I buy PSA or Ruger?
Depends on what you're looking for. Both are fine.
Communists are not even human, let alone American.

>You are trying to goad people into killing white instead of jews.
some mysterious mix of white, negro and spic of varying proportions.
>red blooded liberdy lubing amerganz :DDD
The reason I ask is because I've read a ton of negative reviews about the MPR (should have specified) but at the same time there are a bunch of people who say it's the best rifle for the money, with the CHF barrel and 2 stage trigger. It's nice to have the warranty.. but I don't want to buy something that I'm guaranteed to have to use the warranty on in the first place.
Also, it seems like most of the issues are with people using steel case ammunition before the rifle has broken in, but that's not the only issue I've seen posted.
What are the gun laws like in the Falkland Islands and the Channel Islands? (Jersey and Sark)
Jersey is basically the same as the US in terms of what they can get, legal semi-auto rifles of any caliber, legal semi-auto pistols of any caliber, legal semi-auto shotguns, no mag restrictions on anything, no real specific import restrictions, so they can still get real Russian-made AKs and Swiss-made SGs like the UK. Jersey has the best gun laws of anywhere in Britain. The complete opposite of New Jersey really.
I have no idea about the Falklands and Sark though, I know Guernsey is pretty much the same as the UK.
Do you customize a s&w revolver or does it just work out of the box?
They ain't as good as they used to be, but they will work fine out of the box. I'd say an old S&W, like my M29, doesn't need a trigger job the way it is, but a newer one you may really think about, considering S&W's are the easiest to work on. Remember that a minor trigger job, like a kit or some light work might really improve it overall. Keep in mind too much trigger work to lighten it will eventually cause lighter primer strikes that may affect how certain rounds will perform because of primer brisancy. Be careful doing too much work yourself, in some cases you will easily make things worse. I've seen people on the Youtube who have roughed up things they tried to polish, you can easily damage things or bring them out of spec.
If you aren't shooting competition, a stock gun is probably OK and light work is best if you do.
I think the best way to deal with the piece of trash is to post trash cans at it.
Report it for ban evasion
What style of mag release is better - AR-style button or HK style paddle? Is button mag release harder to manufacture?
They're both just a latch and a spring, right? I wouldn't imagine one is all that harder to manufacture than the other. I have more experience with button releases so I prefer them, but I can see the advantage of the paddle as it's natively ambidexterous, and because of its position harder to accidentally engage.
Paddle tends to be simpler, though they're both pretty simple, and lends itself well to modification. It's also natively ambi, and if positioned right can be hit with the trigger finger during mag changes.
Button mag release can be faster, but it usually requires a mag catch higher on the mag, so like on the AR15 if you have a modular gun you are restricted in cartridge to whatever will fit in the standard magwell.
I prefer pretty strongly a paddle mag release. All of my mag fed long guns use them, and a rock-in lock mag just seems more secure and reliable to me.
Both have pros and cons.
With a button release, you can shove the magazine straight in though in a stressful situation you might not know if it's fully inserted and locked. It's also harder to seat a loaded magazine with a closed bolt.
With the paddle release, you have to rock the magazine in which can be troublesome - the M14 is notorious for being a bastard even when you're used to it. Polymer magazines also typically suck ass due to the tight fitting necessary for operation, like AK pmags.
>but it usually requires a mag catch higher on the mag
With a paddle release you need two locking surfaces, one in the front and one in the rear. Typically the front portion locks right into the receiver and the rearward part is quite low for the purpose of stability, and the AK and AR magazines have almost the exact same placement distance.
>so like on the AR15 if you have a modular gun you are restricted in cartridge to whatever will fit in the standard magwell
Anon I don't think the type of magazine release is the part of the design that limits ammunition selection
>Anon I don't think the type of magazine release is the part of the design that limits ammunition selection
The mag release is a crucial part of the magwell design. I don't see any way the AR15 magwell could work with a different release unless you added some weird transfer bars. You'd have to shorten it to use a rock in paddle mag type, then it wouldn't be an AR15 magwell anymore.
You realize that you have the same issues as rock-in magazines, right?
There are adapters when you need to use smaller calibers or different magazines in general.
What about MP5 with paddle mag release? It doesn't require rocking the mag, just pushing it in afaik.
If I made an AR pistol with not only a set of canted sights, but canted a foregrip and stabilizer to align with them, would that be legal without papers?
It's not as obvious because of the deep magwell, but you do have to rock it back to lock it in place.
Ok, but can you make a notch on the back of the mag that would lock against a paddle without rocking the mag in place, so you get both the ergonomics of the paddle release and the polymer mags and ease of reloading of button-style? Kind of like a notch in the side of the mag in the button mag lock but it's on the back side of the magazine, kind of like the notch on the pic related but bigger for more secure lock.
It's an issue of clearance, there's not enough room for the magazine to be seated like that. The leverage to ease insertion and the snug fit are the main bonuses of having a paddle release.
The MP5(and the G3 series in general) and the G36 have made it as subtle as possible, but without connecting the paddle to a button release you'll still need to rock the magazine into the locked position to avoid it flopping around.
Thanks, i kinda get it now - if you're using metal mags and a gun that doesn't have bolt hold open then paddle release might be a good idea, but if you're the other way round then button release might be better. So if you're going with the most "modern" design then it's probably easier to use the button mag release and customize the controls, possibly adding paddle if you like its ergonomics.
>you'll still need to rock the magazine into the locked position to avoid it flopping around
Isn't there a ramp on the top of the notch that paddle end catches on and locks it in place? Why can't you just push it straight in so that the mag pushes the locking lever to the side and it then just locks in place? Is there something that stops you from doing that in the current mags?
Also, how do polymer mags compare to steel or aluminum ones in general? Price, weight, reliability, ease of use, personal preference?
>Is there something that stops you from doing that in the current mags?
It's likely to do with the size and/or curvature, since older SMGs were set up like that. Though it's still harder to seat them on a closed bolt, so it could also be a deliberate change based on that.
>Also, how do polymer mags compare to steel or aluminum ones in general? Price, weight, reliability, ease of use, personal preference?
One of the more obvious bonuses of polymer magazines is that they don't bend, they wear and break. It's easier to diagnose problems that way rather than steel magazines set to a different specification, and aluminum magazines can have bent feed lips that prevent proper feeding in any rifle.
So this type of mag lock seems to be an outdated version of button-style release, internally, and so the latter should be used if so desired? Or should it only be used in designs that want paddle ergonomics while remaining button-style internally?
It's all personal preference, which is why there are people who dislike straight magazine insertion for rifles/SMGs and people who dislike rocking in magazines.
As long as it works as intended there's no objective problem.
Well, there are some objective advantages and downsides, like magwell accepting the mag at any angle and without changing the direction of the push or leverage when insertion against a closed bolt, so i want to understand these things in more detail, as there's a lot less info and less attention in general on magazines and their construction, even though they are a very important factor of a firearm and can largely impact things as reliability, up to the point of making the firearm inoperable.
What about the Walther and HK pistols with a paddle release? You don't need to rock those into place, and the magazines drop free.
That's soundtrack to the game Bastion by Darren Korb. Good taste.
Why not. It has no stock, no vertical foregrip, and the barrel is a legal length for a pistol. What about that makes it an sbr?
That's a heel release and locks over or near the bottom, so it's entirely irrelevant.

>Is there some public access archive in Winnipeg I need to track down
Someone here already tried to tack down the rest of it, from memory the letter he got back was something to the effect of "get fucked".
So the solution is not a daring expedition to discover the lost treasures of Winnipeg, but an elaborate heist to liberate Manitoba's gift to the world from the undeserving hands that clutch it?
Every time I shoot my Mossberg 590 with the bayonet affixed, the recoil throws it off.
I take it this isn't normal?
Does a .30-06 hollow point cause more tissue damage than both a 20 and 12 gauge slug?
depends on the hollow point in question and on the barrel length - 12 gauge equals 30-06 at 24" barrel at ~2900-3000ft-lbs so out of shorter barrel it'd have less. If hollow point expands correctly then it can probably match the diameter of the slug - then they'd be somewhat equal, though slug might still cause a bit more damage as it doesn't need to expand. So, 20 gauge is weaker unless we look at different barrels while 12 gauge equals 30-06 from their standard barrel lengths, though 30-06 would have a lot more range and might penetrate less depending on the bullet used - soft points are generally preferred with rifle cartridges unless it's some premium chad ammo where advanced technologies can offer something in addition to general performance.
What's your fair price for a sporterized and rusted to shit tikka mosin? I found one at lgs and might take it off their hands for 200. It's not my first x54, and seems like a decent choice to modify.
I wouldn't touch that gun, it looks so rusted I've begun to hallucinate figures appearing in the corrosion.
From what I've read it's decently normal. The bayonet was really put on as an afterthought, and mostly a crowd control device. That said, I bet some careful fitting could secure it properly, I just haven't bothered getting an M7 or M9 to try on my 590 when I've got a trench gun project going.
Depending on exactly how/what was sporterized, I'd probably offer $150 for what's basically a barreled action to me.
Why were cockpit sights on most german WW2 fighter aircraft mounted off-center?

What is the most reliable and effective box magazine fed 12 gauge shotgun?
Are there any good 7.62x39mm and .30-06 hollow points? If so, elaborate. I'm also wondering what the best .380 ACP hollow point is for self-defense. I've heard about .380 ACP Federal Hydra-Shok JHP ammo yet there have been criticisms about its penetration, so is it still worth it?
Does the .380 ACP outweigh 9mm in a self-defense scenario because of its lower recoil?
Hello yes this is guns
It could also be due to some weird ammo indicator placement autism inherent to german aircraft design philosophy, though strangely enough the nips also have off-center sights on some of their planes even if they're are bulky as fuck while virtually all allied fighters of the time had centered sights.
ust throwing this out there, physical contact is battery. Assault is when you're afraid they're going to hurt you battery is when they actually touch/hurt you. So why aren't they called battery rifles?
They'd only be battery rifles if their intended purpose was to be swung like clubs at the enemy. The G3 was a prominent battery rifle in the Cold War.

I want to test pepper spray in my face, to man up and know what it's like (so if someone spray me in the street, I'll be more ready).
How much time should I keep the liquid on my face? Do I rinse immediatly? (in the street, I would not be able to do that immediatly so…)
the point of testing is to learn something in a controlled environment.
Contact a friend who's a medic or a cop, and talk with him to set it up in a way you won't hurt yourself more than expected.
Does anyone have that photo with the caption "bump stock in one image"? I was also wondering if any of you have a bump stock diagram of its components.
Alright /k/, let's talk about this for a moment. I have been seeing this pattern ever since I knew what the internet was, it's a pattern among Western European, Australian and New Zealander NPC's thinking the idea of supporting (((gun control))) is "sensible and civilized". They take it as a badge of honor compared to gun rights in the US, or at least what they perceive it to be. As gun laws in America is shifting more and more to UK-tier, these said foreign NPC's are still implying gun rights here is "too lax".
This is the part that ticks me off the most. It's the part where they will say having no (((gun control))) at all is "stupid and backwards". Etiher that or they will just say owning a firearm in your home is a "racist, backwards, gun-toting American thing to do". When did this sentiment start in the 20th/21th century? After WWII? I know for a fact that New York Jews have been supporting anti-gun legislations ever since 1910. It was never popular in other Western countries. I'd say the reason why these anti-gun sentiments is present in other foreign nations is because it's fueled by news outlets with ties to US (((mainstream media))).
I also know for a fact that city-going Western European, and especially the British ones love (((liberalism))) a whole lot. They call it "social democracy", that's all. From my own experience, they are the most critical of US gun rights (and of course they don't know how similar present US gun rights are to theirs nowadays, they just eat up the next (((false flag))) mass shooting incedent in the US). Even the Australian NPC's are willing to admit that they enjoy whatever freedom of firearm ownership they have, even if it gives them a flimsy makeshift pea shooter.
So what gives? Why are they so numerous in normalfag circles? How can you even properly debate these lemmings? They're literally worse than communists, in my opinion. Because as blatantly retarded as commies are, they don't support (((gun control))) either. But only because they don't want shitskins disarmed, they would disarm Whites in a heartbeat if they were ever given power. Then they will disarm their shitskin "comrades", anyway. Actually you know what, I take it all back, nothing's worse than commies. Except for kikes of any political flavor, of course.
I'm a bit new to the /k/ life, looking to start my collection pretty soon. Was thinking about having a pretty normie tier rifle to start, something gun laws won't sperg at as an excuse to start lowkey howrding ammo, what's the consensus on .357?
To me it seems really versitile, I haven't had the opportunity to hit a range since I was a kid but I remember lever action being fun as shit. That, plus them looking really sexy and seeming pretty solid for small game, that's where my heart is kinda set right now. Only gun I've got right now is my shitty little .22 plinker from when I was a kid, can't really do much with that, where is the best place to start looking? What are some good recommendations as far as lever actions go? I figure Winchester is probably a meme, Marlin any good?
Then teach me, because I have no one to teach me anything about this.
My "controlled" environment is either my bathroom, or provoked niggers in the street.
Should I wash off quickly after? Now may time?
Just spray a bit in your room, like one tap of it and you'll get what the thing is. Just do it, you won't die. If it gets in the eyes, wash with water like it's written on it.
>in your room
fuck no. Do you have any idea what a bitch it'll be to vent that shit out afterwards? Do it outside, on a balcony or in the garden or something.

Go watch all of this guy's videos.
In any of his rooms, including bathroom. I'm not saying about outside because i've had the experience - my dad fucked up and sprayed some from a small spray in his pocket, very little but it was pretty hard to breathe in there for about half an hour, and that was just a bit. Outside he might fuck it all up and not feel anything and spray it in his face and eyes afterwards.
You're right to say that inside, that may not be a good idea. Now, that's pepper spray, and not gaz, so that's different. But I sprayed a little bite in my bathroom last day, and yeah, there is a little bite or it going in the air, and I have to ventile it.
My question was should I let in on my face, or wash it off immediatly after with water?
In video related, they seem to keep it and not wash it so I don't know. That's the same orange thing I have.
Well, if you want it that much - try it out and decide if you want to wash it off right away when you feel it. Just check out if there are any risks on the box and DO NOT try to get it in the eyes. Otherwise, it probably won't cause any permanent damage, nor would you trying to claw your own eyes out. Good luck, crasy masochistic strelok.

Is knock-out gas a real thing or just more Hymiewood wankery?
And if it's real how do can make some?
It's real insofar as there exist gases that will knock you out when inhaled. It's a meme in that, for them to work properly, you need very precise dosages depending on the weight and characteristics of the guy you're drugging, and how long you want him out, otherwise it just becomes poison gas. Pumping gas into a room like in hollyjew will inevitably lead to an overdose and probable death of whoever's in the room. There's a reason operating theaters have one or more specialists dedicated to making sure that anaesthesia is being applied in a safe manner.
How loud is a railgun compared to a traditional naval cannon? Cruise missile?
I have a couple pistols chambered in .357 and 9mm and I want to pick up something in .45 ACP. I find myself drooling over 1911s but should I consider something else? What would you gents recomend?
To piggyback off this guy, what do you look for in a 1911? Any tips in general on 1911 buying?
RIA makes an alright one for the price, does have a break in period.
Is it worth spending some extra for a Colt?
Depends if its in your budget for such things. Three hundred rounds at the range ain't much.
RIA, single or doublestack both are great. Ruger if you absolutely have to buy american. Springfield's are half brazilian, colt's are overpriced and outside of a few boutique guns underperforming, remingtons are made on shot out ex-para tooling by drunk monkeys in Huntsville, and Sigs or S&W are highly questionable QC in addition to not actually being 1911's.
>Any tips in general on 1911 buying?
The fit of a 1911 determines reliability. A proper, working 1911 will always have slide rattle - high-end 1911s will have little to none when you receive it because everything is cut closer than specifications call for and require a very long break-in period; the break-in period is when parts begin to wear out during the operation and cycling of the gun, beating away excess to make just enough room for the gun to work without binding or dragging. Until then, malfunctions should be expected.
On the other end of the spectrum, RIA, among other low-budget names, is known for more sloppy-fitting slides - this means cycling will not be impeded, but sometimes there is too much extra slack and proper ejection and feeding will be a problem instead. Sometimes there will be a break-in period out of the box for these, but it usually calls for examining individual parts, like the recoil spring or the extractor, for possible replacing.
GI sights suck ass.
If you have to replace any internals, it's going to require another break-in because, as mentioned before, it's made to a certain specification that may not necessarily match that of the guns current state while cycling.
7 round magazines are cheap, but 8 round magazines are the new standard. Don't cheap out, but don't buy the most expensive - 1911s are picky with magazines too, and you might find a particular brand cycles with no issues while another, usually crappy GI mags, is absolutely terrible. The good thing is that 1911 magazines are cheap, so you even can get an Ed Brown for ~$30.
How do you find a good range? I've only been to one, and it was indoors. It was alright but they didn't allow cameras and that's one of my requirements. Is this a normal thing at ranges, to ban cameras? How do you determine which ones are better than others? My state has a few unstaffed outdoor ranges but there's a high chance of niggers. I'm willing to drive an hour or two to get to fuddland if this would significantly improve the experience. Also, the ones I've looked at are mostly 100 yards max, but I eventually want to shoot at 1000. Any tips?
The better ones are generally membership-only. And they're not always called ranges, but sportsmen clubs or something like that. Check out their websites for pictures of the range and what rules they have before going in person.
Thanks for the info, the rattle of the gun is something that the guy at cabelas was saying I should look for. The RIA one they had there had iirc a cast brass sear that was prone to breaking and the slide would have cracks where the slide lock would catch. IDK if that was just him trying to get me to buy the more expensive one or not.
>find this after not knowing where i put it
>never got around to looking for it, stuffed in the box the gun came in, stuffed in back of closet

>The RIA one they had there had iirc a cast brass sear that was prone to breaking and the slide would have cracks where the slide lock would catch. IDK if that was just him trying to get me to buy the more expensive one or not.
RIA uses lots of cast parts, though the majority of pistols do not suffer from parts breakage, much less the slide cracking. People do tinker with RIA pistols to get them running reliably on the first try no matter the condition, though, so there are plenty of guides on ditching the cast bits for better parts.
This guy has a somewhat decent rundown of what can be done - http://www.ktgunsmith.com/RIAM1911A1.htm
Not a question, but 10/10
Oh man, that's fucking great
Not him. But you should find a safe place with a safe backstop, empty your gun and magazine, and practice dry fire drills. Specifically pertaining to your question you should be practicing your target acquisition.
You should grab your rifle, sling it of your shoulder or hold the grip and handguard, pointing down in a low ready position or a rested position. Stand (safely) naturally with the rifle.
Now. Note your current position. If necessary, adjust your stance as you
Pull the rifle into your shoulder, bring the barrel up an on target. Make no adjustments. Where is your sight picture? Close? Way off? How does the rifle feel in your shoulder? A lot of these adjustments are going to be the difference between a fast target acquisition.
Practice from whatever positions you plan to shoot from, and do it from a non ready position. EI it doesn't matter how you look down your sights from a shooting bench. Because it is the least compromising and least important and least difficult way you'll shoot a rifle.
It's important to note that you shouldn't be making many if any adjustments after you bring your rifle up. Your goal is to always end up shouldering and raising your rifle in a manner that the sights align every time. It comes with consistent practice over a long period of time. After 1000 rounds of good practice you should be getting off your first shot in under 2 seconds. And from there progression slows.
But focus on a perfect shoulder above all else, because you'll always make your aiming adjustments for your sight picture with your front hand and your body together. You'll raise and lower with your hands, and pivot your body for lateral movements.
Honestly though, it's super important to remember that every single person is different and while general guidelines exist, you are you and whatever helps you perform the best is what it best for you. Unless you plan on going to war, you need to just experiment and find what is most comfortable and long term most efficient.
What's the golden rule of scope magnification, i.e. which one to pick for what range? 1 per 100m? 50?

Man that is blunt enough to bash a mans brains out six times over.
Is it possible to make a 2 piece receiver where its inner part would use sheet metal and outside frame is made out of polymer? That way it could be pretty durable and robust while not having problems with dents, being easier to handle and possible even lighter(would it or sheet metal negates the advantage?). Are there any guns that use something similar?
YouTube embed. Click thumbnail to play.
Basically the XM8 and the G36. They're bulky and transfers heat very poorly, leading to thinner parts of the polymer melting with sustained fire.
Dragunov had a similar idea ages ago and submitted his MA rifle with a fiberglass receiver, the bolt riding along the steel top cover. Of course, that will get hot as fuck in short order as well, especially since the grip is part of the receiver and is made of the same material.
>2 piece receiver
That's not what i meant, 2 material frame receiver would be more appropriate. Something tube-like similar to G3 but with thinner metal and polymer support around it, so that it's nicer to touch, can be easier shaped and doesn't dent.
Thanks, but what is a better design of a receiver then? Stamped steel can dent and render firearm inoperable, polymer receiver easily breaks and melts, machined ones are heaviest and most expensive and combined ones are limited to plastic over sheet metal, right?
>Stamped steel can dent and render firearm inoperable
Can, but even crap AKs have a sturdy enough design to prevent irreparable damage. Not to mention they're riveted/pinned to both a front and rear trunnion to keep it in shape with the safety lever reaching across to prevent warping.
Really the best improvement would be thicker steel, and it wouldn't have to be much.
>polymer receiver easily breaks and melts
>machined ones are heaviest and most expensive
Milled steel is heavy, milled aluminum isn't. Though steel is also tougher.
Production costs would be similar for both, though.
>combined ones are limited to plastic over sheet metal, right?
There's no best, there's just what works for specific designs.
>even crap AKs have a sturdy enough design to prevent irreparable damage
True, but special equipment is often necessary to repair it. Might as well stock up some plastic receivers and replace them when needed.
Aluminum has a pretty rough surface though, so it'd wear faster than steel and make action less smooth. Coating choice is also more limited, even if needed less than it is for steel.
What other possible combinations can there be though? Fiberglass or carbon fiber for even lighter weight? I can't think of any other, except for maybe aluminum hull with steel rails/insert.
>There's no best, there's just what works for specific designs
So for full fun either cheap stamped or expensive machined steel and for something that's unlikely to be used for suppression plastic for throwaway rifle or plastic/sheet metal combo for lighter weight and toughness. The only problem with the latter is heat management, right? Otherwise, it doesn't dint, is lighter and costs around as much as stamped metal. How much of a problem is it with current rifles using the tech? They all use short stroke gas piston that is the least heat-inducing one.
>The only problem with the latter is heat management, right?
Yeah, that's the main problem, and while the short stroke gas piston is a great way of avoiding excess heat, the close bond of steel and polymer with no radiator or cooling system(air or otherwise) ensures that it's still going to bake after a few magazines.
A polymer coating or something like
okay let's go full retard and just put a coating of bed-liner on an AK receiver or some shit
you know that bumpy crap that prevents you from scraping up the metal
For hitting minute of man it's about one power per 100 yards. For hunting small game, hunting with 5.56 (shot placement), bench rest target shooting, etc., you'll need to go higher.
Would a revolving rifle with the Nagant mechanism be an effective autoloading rifle, on par with lever and bolt actions? Since the Nagant mechanism forms a gas seal, the problem of gas leaking from the side of the cylinder gap would be eliminated, and the user could then get a proper grip on the stock without needing to worry about having their hand blown off.
Anyone know what weapons where in use during the troubles in the 1970s?
Handheld transceiver question: As an absolute novice, I'm having a hard time seeing value in one Baofeng over another. Is there a 'best, most useful model' around $40-$100, and is it the UV-5RA or the 82HP? Are there any good PDFs associated with the hobby?
you'd get the same effect just by having a verticle foregrip, but short answer is yes. Long answer is there wasn't much of an issue in the first place since the main scare was from the days of cap and ball where you could have the cylinders all go off in a catastrophic malfunction that would blow the users hand off.
Does the gas seal work with normal ammunition?
No. It vents like every other revolver.
Means semi-auto. The word you're looking for is 'repeating'.
To answer the actual question, 'yes' in that it could be made to work, 'no' in that it would not have any benefit over existing designs apart from cool factor.
There's a 'Streloks Guide to HAM Radio' floating around somewhere, check /hamradio/. Else look for a copy of the ARRL Technician's test book.
How does the ATF get away with such obvious entrapment?
What's wrong with it?
That's a polymer80 glock lower. It's like an 80% build for an AR-15; you usually can't sell it to other people unless it's got a serial number and a bunch of other bullshit.
You can't sell it through a private sale? If that's the case then the guy just may not know, and someone should tell him.
The more expensive ones may have a higher transmit power or longer battery life.
82hp and uv5r are dual band with the 82hp having more transmit power. Get the uv 5x3 because it gves an extra band and is newer.
Is the narrow hand guards melting on the g3 an actual concern or fuddlore? Should I invest the money on a set of the wide ones?
I doubt you'd ever get it hot enough to melt the handguards. Also this is coming from someone who has never heard of this issue before, or even shot PTR91/C308
Check out the revolver thread, we've got lots of discussion on this topic.
No, unless it's a MG version. Only then it might be possible, though i doubt it. Invest only if you think it fits your hand better but it's fucking ugly compared to the narrow one.
Isn't it that you can't do the stuff "for a living" so one-time is ok?
You can sell one-offs but it's really vaguely worded and mostly boils down to how pro2a/gay whoever you're buying/selling to is. Also varies by state. Trying to sell homemade firearms without being listed as a manufacturer or something is just inviting trouble.
>Isn't it that you can't do the stuff "for a living" so one-time is ok?
Not if there isn't a serial number. Even homemade shit needs at least something scratched into it, legally speaking.
I'm looking to get myself my first AR-15. Are PSA rifles still a good value?
If you're planning to buy a complete rifle instead of build (don't build with PSA lowers, holes are sometimes drilled in the wrong place), PSA isn't bad. I wouldn't say the best value, as there are some slightly more expensive rifles that get you a lot more bang for your buck, but PSA rifles will go bang every time you pull the trigger and won't explode on you. If you're more interested in price/performance ratio instead of just the cheapest thing on the market check out Aero Precision and Ballistic Advantage.
Not sure if it warrants it's own thread so I'll ask here. Are there any armed forces in the world still worth joining? I'm American and really want to be part of something greater, but I shudder at the thought of joining the ZOG. I heard the French Foreign Legion might be worth taking a look at, but I have no idea what sets them apart from other alternatives.
Should I look to join a militia instead? If so, what should I look for? I'd rather not just join Bubba's band of misfits that just goes skeet shooting on the weekends (although that does sound a tiny bit fun.) Any advice would be appreciated.
FFL really isn't better than anything else, and I believe it's also full of niggers. You could always try joining the Reserves or National Guard, you get the training and cameraderie you think you want, but instead of fighting for the ZOG you go play soldier in the woods once a month. There's still a chance your unit will get deployed but it's not very high.
The law is very vaguely termed. A prosecutor with a stick up his ass would try to throw the book at you. Plus it's all about the "intent" of the guy who created the firearm.
Anyone got a copy of this in a legible size?
I'll join and then invite you, anyone else? need to rank up lf recurts
Will whites in SA win in case of a civil war against niggers or it`s going to be Rhodesia 2 :Electric Boogaloo?
Considering the use of communist warlords to take out Rhodesia, SA would likely be wiped off the map if the EU caught wind of a scuffle.
I don't want to be a pessimist but I can't see a "humanitarian effort" not happening in response to that.
Can /k help me out. I'm a nodev trying to make a tactical sort of game. In order for it to make sense as much as possible, I'm interested in simulating the effective range of weapons. Does anyone have any charts or graphs that will show me the effective range, penetration capability etc of pistols, rifles, shotguns, submachine guns, SAWs etc?
Effective range is difficult to measure apart from assumptions based on velocity, and bullet drop is also pretty hard to find information on outside of target shooting forums.
Look up the guns you want on wikipedia or equivalent, keep in mind the barrel length and caliber. Look up "X caliber ballistic chart barrel length", X being the caliber you're searching for and leave barrel length as-is because generally those charts will include multiple anyway, pic related in the case of 9x19mm.
It's also going to be heavily based upon types of ammunition, so keep that in mind depending on how autistic you want to get.
Is there any point in designated marksmen role if your service rifle is a battle rifle?
D E S I G N A T E D
And? The purpose of DM is to extend the effective range of a fireteam so if their range is already sufficient this role doesn't have much place. It became widespread specifically because of the use of "intermediate cartridges" like 556 so if they'd be changed for something with more range the role might die as well.
>I'm interested in simulating the effective range of weapons.
It means different things depending on the exact semantics or who you're asking. It could be:
>the range at which an average marksman can be expected to hit an appropriate target more than half the time
>the range at which the projectile goes from supersonic to subsonic (this causes it to 'wobble' and then re-stabilize, throwing off its trajectory)
>the range at which the projectile slows to a point where its energy is below a threshold deemed 'lethal'.
>the absolute maximum distance the projectile is capable of traveling over level ground, usually with the barrel pointing up at about a 45 degree angle
Yeah thanks, I've learned this just now. I'm at the point where I need some sort of single book or text that contains consistent measurements. At the moment, I'm basing things off the point at which an average soldier should hit 50% of the time definition, which works well for my ballistics model. But I'm happy to adapt to anything that lists a whole bunch of weapons in a consistent way. Right now, I'm missing a lot of info on the point past the 50/50 Effective Range. Like what is the point that your average soldier has no hope in hell?
In theory you wouldn't need a designated marksman if everyone is equipped and trained to be one, but it depends entirely on the arbitrary standards put in place via doctrines.
If soldiers are forced into close quarters and urban environments, there will be a benefit to a designated marksman due to having at least someone focused on more precision work than dumping a mag with suppressive fire.
In the battle rifle's ideal situation, open and rural areas, it would largely go to waste assuming everyone has vaguely reliable optics in the current year.
Thanks, i was just rethinking the concept of 6-6.5mm general purpose cartridges and used battle rifles as a comparison, as their range is very similar and they differ only in CQ capability which is not relevant to the role of extending squad range. What i was thinking is whether there's a need in a special role of a sharpshooter when all the squad is limited mostly by their sighting tools and skills as they are using the same ammo a sniper probably would(aside from match grade/specifics).
If they are not a bunch of bumbling retards, then they will figure out on their own that it's better to have their best shot do the precise work. It's the same as the role of a grenadier in an army that uses rifle grenades: in theory every rifleman is a grenadier, but in practice it's better to give most of the grenades to one or two man who will act as the squad's grenadiers. So in a section that uses battle rifles (with optics) and rifle grenades you'd have a go-to man who acts as a marksman, and an other man who acts as a grenadier, even though everyone in the section is issued with the exact same weapons.
Like I said, it depends on doctrine. Cold War Russian doctrine for the SVD, for example, made it more of a shoot and scoot rifle that was also used for harassing fire to cover retreat.
That's a fair point, Hungary. People do overlook squad-level jobs pretty often.
Ok, thank you guys. I never thought that modern doctrine would allow such autonomy. I was more thinking in terms of "if issuing 1-6 scopes with these rifles is there a point in giving one of them a more expensive 1-8 or even 3-12 scope for that role or that's unnecessary". I understand that different doctrines exist but i was also wondering about the effectiveness of these decisions within these doctrines and results of them when confronted on similar terms. It also helps that modern military doctrines are not so dissimilar in regards to small arms, at least from my understanding(5.56 and 5.45, 308 and x54r, weapons too, even their design trends).
>I never thought that modern doctrine would allow such autonomy.
Even during ww1 the French literally gave a bunch of self-loading rifles to an infantry company and just told the officers to give it to the men who will use them well. And that was also how Germans and Russians issued self-loading rifles and scopers during ww2, if I'm not mistaken. What I'm speaking about is nothing compared to that. Also, a basic instinct of every mentally sound man is to be useful for their tribe, so men will naturally try to find their own niche in their group.
>I was more thinking in terms of "if issuing 1-6 scopes with these rifles is there a point in giving one of them a more expensive 1-8 or even 3-12 scope for that role or that's unnecessary".
Scopes make objects appear bigger (by limiting the field-of-view, but that's not important here), so if we are extremely theoretical, then shoorting at a target 1200m away with a x6 scope is the same as shooting at a target 200m away with a x1 scope. It's hard, but hardly impossible for a good shooter. But if we take a step towards reality, then we can already see two great problems: wind drift and the arching path of the projectile. With an automatic rifle you can try to overcome the first one by walking your fire towards the target, which is a valid tactic (just not very elegant). The second one is even greater: 200m is still close to point-blank range even for an assault rifle (although it also depends on the sights, look up how the iron sights of the AK are set up), so you can just aim and shoot. At 1200m you have to get the distance correct, otherwise you will completey miss the target. Aim like if it was 1100m or 1300m away, and you just wasted a cartridge. Therefore what you need is not a better scope, but a very flat shooting cartridge and a range measurer.
Thanks for the insight, i guess that's why military hasn't turned into even greater shitshow yet.
>shoorting at a target 1200m away with a x6 scope
Well, it could be an x4 scope if we decided to cheap out so there's that. That could make an issue more severe. It seems like the need for DM role depends on how far a fireteam range is below the maximum range of common small arms.
>Therefore what you need is not a better scope, but a very flat shooting cartridge and a range measurer.
Well, range measurer is built in most good scopes so that's not a problem and 6mm cartridges are as flat-shooting as you can get, so if there's no specific need to extend the range with what's already on hand then such role(as being pre-defined, not self-organized) is unnecessary and additional investment in it is too. Maybe in an afghan-type of terrain where long shots are easier it could make sense to do that but otherwise it seems like it doesn't or at least not to the point that it'd matter. I was also talking more along the 800-900m range, not 1200. Still beyond the comfortable power of the probably scope but not a problem that'd require anything special to be dealt with given the probability of it happening.

Memes aside, what is the average lethality of .22 ammunition applied against unprotected flesh? And how does it fare against armor?
>what is the average lethality of .22 ammunition applied against unprotected flesh?
What .22? LR or Magum?
In any case .22 is just as lethal as any other pistol round on short distance
It will fail to penetrate, and i doubt it will be able to even break ribs (0.22 magnum with rubber tip will break bones just fine tho on unprotected targets)
It punches small holes that are, if placed right, lethal. You'd get something similar if you got shanked with a stiletto or a nail. 22mag does a bit more damage but it's nothing special either and getting shot with anything isn't very good for you. 22mag can penetrate soft body armors, maybe even IIIa, i remember Paul Harrell did a video on this so you can watch it.
What was that one video where the troops were evicted people from their homes?
Hm.. Survivalist weapon?
Not trying to datamine but where do streloks like to shoot? I can shoot in my yard but 50 yards at most and only from pretty specific places. Gun range seems like a step down because even less mobility and the ones near me are rulecucks (no rapid fire, no draw training etc.). Do I make friends with a farmer or something?
Pretty goddamn lethal with hp and good shot placement against unarmoured, any armour worth wearing will stop .22. At close range 22lr 36g hp expands beautifully. The tactics of using .22 against armoured combatants would be interesting, they would still have to stay down and move as if it were any short range gun. You can't just hope to get hit in the vest and not in the neck or balls. Laying down hundreds of rounds would be almost as bad as 5.56 for anyone trying to move. Assuming they are in range of course.
Disclaimer: I don't know shit about tactics.
I can't help you but, what are the rules for shooting in your yard? Where in burgerstan can you do this? Obviously it depends on your local laws but how do you find places where it's legal to shoot in your backyard?
There's a lot of open space in the burger Midwest, being able to shoot in your yard, or in a wide-open space near your home, is pretty commonplace. Actual laws on doing this vary by state and municipality, but if the boolits aren't leaving your property and the report isn't loud enough to neighbors to be considered "disturbing the peace" you generally won't get shit from the cops. There are exceptions due to local laws, for instance in my faggy hometown it's illegal to discharge a firearm within city limits.
In my state you have to be outside of city limits and be 500 yards from another house, my neighbor isn't that far away but he is nice and I shoot with my back to our houses. I shoot into a hill as well. I have a lot of dense forest on the land i'm on so sound really doesn't go that far.
Really it's on the shooter to determine if it's safe, outside of cities there are no designated "you can shoot on these properties" laws. There are plenty of parks and stuff where they make it clear you can't shoot though.
Fuddlore. This shit never happened with anything but the early prototype versions that don't have a thin aluminium cover on the inside.

What should I load in a shotgun? Buckshells or slugs? Which ammo type would give me more options in combat/hunting?
Why are short barreled rifles and short barreled shotguns class 3 firearms? Aren't shorter barrels less dangerous? I was interested in getting some sort of sawed off and birdshot shells for self/home defense to minimize overpenetration but it seems this would be a pain in the ass to buy. Should I try and get one anyways? What would be a good gun for a novice in a small apartment with no kids/animals? I'm in AZ so anything goes.
Shotguns seem appealing due to the aforementioned overpenetration problem as well as the ability to use nonlethal ammunition like salt or beanbags but I would need it to be small so an 18" barrel is not going to work. I'd really like an automatic SMG and rubber tip rounds but I assume that this would be even more difficult to legally buy.
When is the next article arguing against racism going to be released?
Because of antiquated laws passed over 80 years ago to deal with the mafia gangsters, which did nothing to deal with the mafia gangsters.
What >>638134 said. They couldn't bust gangsters for anything so they made their guns illegal. They tried a blanket ban, but could only get away with permits - they also tried to ban pistols along with it, but everyone and their mother was packing at the time so nobody would stand for that.
Because of lawmakers making certain guns used by mobsters illegal so that way they can prosecute them and nobody ever bothered to change them. If you want a very blatant example of it, look up the Lebman 1911, it's the reason you can't put a foregrip or a stock on handguns.
I see, so in my use case would it be worth it to try and get a class 3 or should I go with something else?
>get a class 3
Why do you want to get a class 3 license? You know you can just file a Form 4 and get a NFA item. Or even better, just get a pistol rifle with a shockblade or arm brace, though careful with that because if you doing that as a workaround against the NFA is illegal.
Totally forgot to answer the second parts
>as well as the ability to use nonlethal ammunition like salt or beanbags
Don't bother, they're for police riot control not some private citizen. Not to say you shouldn't be able to own it, it's just useless to buy them and use it.
>I'd really like an automatic SMG and rubber tip rounds
Are you underage? You're not getting an automatic firearm unless you got a good couple thousand lying around. Again, rubber bullets, okay for riot police, absolutely retarded for a private citizen to use for self defense. If I remember correctly someone got successfully sued for using that non-lethal garbage on a home intruder, maybe it's fuddlore. If you concerned about over-penetration, get an AR-15 with hollow-point rounds. The round was practically made to dump all its energy in the intended target.
I had just assumed you'd be in less legal trouble for incapacitating an intruder with nonlethal rounds than you would be for killing them. The pistol rifles I've seen (and the AR-15) are way too big for me to carry around. I'm not underage and I can afford an automatic firearm.
How durable are lever action rifles? I've heard that they weren't used much along bolt actions because they were less durable, is it true and if it is, how much of a concern it is?
Just get some conceal carry law insurance. If they're too big to carry around why are you going about a SBS or a sub machine gun, just get a pistol at that point.

I think this is the best answer you can get. But the short answer is that they have lots of fiddely bits, and that's never a good thing for a military rifle.
It'd more be something to put in a backpack without it sticking out too much.
You're not going to shoot up a school are you?
>Looking into SBRs/SBS
>Can afford to drop $9k-$40k+ on a machine gun
It is also worth checking out your local laws on the matter. I have heavily considering going through the trouble of making pic related in my shit state, which would require me have a C&R license. Every state handles NFA shit differently.
>Pistol carbines/Something along the size of a short barreled AR is too big
That pretty much puts you into the category of Mac-11/10s and Uzis. Someone please correct me if I am wrong, but that also means you have to get a second NFA tax stamp to put a stock on either of them if it was not registered with on already. It might be worth it to just register a semi-auto pistol and slap a stock on it.
If I wanted to I'd just use something big with a yuge magazine and assemble it in the bathroom.
I'd be fine with a 9mm without a stock, the reason I was interested in rubber bullets earlier is that I'm more looking for a deterrent than something lethal. In fact the only reason I want it to be automatic is for covering fire, so a Mac-11/10 would work just fine.
>Someone please correct me if I am wrong, but that also means you have to get a second NFA tax stamp to put a stock on either of them if it was not registered with on already
Full auto/MG Classification supersedes SBS/SBR classification, also suppressor classification in the case of an integrated design. For example a registered MP5SD only requires a single stamp even though it qualifies as a suppressor, SBR, and an MG.
> I'm more looking for a deterrent than something lethal.
It's a gun. Even fucking .22short can be lethal in the right circumstances. If you're not comfortable with the idea of taking human life in defense of yours then don't waste your money, cause when the time comes you won't have the balls to pull the trigger.
Well I don't always expect to use it in life or death situations, I figure the most likely scenario is some unarmed nigger breaks into my apartment and if I kill him with a gun I could get into trouble, this shit has happened before with firearm and dog owners.
You're getting in trouble no matter what since

Welcome to the jewnited states of muttmerica.

Long story short, floppies get slotted. Do not feel for the criminal for he has no respect for your and your life you shan't have any for his.

How does it compare to all the newfangled space age wonder chemicals?
Some pistols have serrations along the top of the slide to help counter glare, yeah.
I use it on my AR and pistol, 7/10 it just werks. You could probably get a deeper clean if you paid for some high-end chemicals from G96 or something, but for the price it's real good for what you get.
So, as a cleaner….ok.
Since, on their website, it says it's the original CLP, do you have an opinion on the L and P?
Lubrication and Preserving part?
are there any good and fun air rifles you lads would recommend? Nothing too expensive, just for shooting beer cans and pests
In my experience it works pretty good for lubrication, about as good as WD-40, and it's non-toxic so I prefer to use it over that. I'm sure it works pretty well for preservation but I'm not sure since it forms an emulsion with water instead of repelling it. They even say you can mix ballistol with water to form an emulsion for cleaning to make it go further but I'm not sure I would do that.
I had one of those air guns you have to pump 8 or 10 times per shot when I was a kid, crossman I think. dirt cheap and pellets would punch through spray paint cans no problem. I killled some rabbits for my grandpas farm with it. I know air guns have advanced since then but that thing never died after 10 year old me put 50,000+ shots through it. I think it died because I took it apart and couldn't get it back together.
Would you work as a security guy for if I pay you one bitcoin daily?
I grew up with a Ruger Air Hawk, it's a lot heavier and has more recoil than a .22, so it was good practice before I got my first real gun.
It's not bad as a lube too. Plenty slippery but a bit runny, not perfect but certainly good enough. For protection, I haven't seen any rust or problem spots on my guns yet, but I'm also pretty careful with my guns and store them in a controlled area so I couldn't tell you how much of that is from the Ballistol.
Babbys first time at 200 yards. This was my second group, first group above that but first shot was about 3 inches high.
Did I do good? Looks like I'm about an inch or two high on my zero but if I bring it down it negatively affected my 50 yard zero.
This looks pretty bad, please train little bit more
Only if he was using magnifying optics, otherwise it's pretty good.
Is there any place to get ISIS memorabilia, they are gonna get killed off soon, so it would be a shame to not grab a flag or something cool before they finally do die off. I doubt it as people are probably keeping stuff as war trophies, but still would be cool to have.
Look up PKK/Rojava fighters on the internet
Some of them sell loot like IS minted coins
I see a surplus VEPR stock and forearm and they look neat. Will they fit other AKs?
Every individual marksman should have an anti material weapon of some kind in their arsenal, just in case. I'm investing towards my first one and probably wont make another firearms related purchase until I buy one, or decide the bang isn't worth the buck. My minimum standard for one is that it needs to be able to defeat most forms of bullet proof glass with a single pull of the trigger. How much over kill would a 50 cal. fmj projectile be and is the m82a1 platform a superior choice for it?
Is there a goyish version of this?
Straight cut maybe, slant cut no.

Any good gun websites besides 8/k/, world.guns.ru and thefirearmblog?
I want some cool shortie AK before (((EU))) ban comes in effect in my ZOG state. What to choose, /k/? AKS-74U, M92 or Saiga MK106 in .308? I already have bunch of 5.45 mags and no gun in this caliber. Saiga is most expensive and M92 cheapest.
Personally i like 7.62x39 in shortie AKs, and my M92 has worked fine for the couple of thousand rounds i have put through it.
AKS-74u is pure sex so it gets my vote.
I liked the look, but fingered one in shop - finish was poor and and it's heavy - it weights more then AKM. Also I already have one AK in 7.62x39
And it's most compact. Could put one in backpack and nobody would know
Can you nigger rig together bullets that are smaller than your barrel, as a method of hiding what type of gun was used for a given prank? Like using .22 bullets from an AR15 to make it look like you used a Ruger 10/22.
I think he meant to put a different spec calibre into a different spec barrel. I mean 5.56 is just 22lr. And yeah it is possible too, as long as the casing properly seals it off.
>I think he meant to put a different spec calibre into a different spec barrel
I don't think you'll get any reasonable accuracy or reliability if it's in a semi-auto unless you use some sort of sabot.
That's pretty neat and fits my criteria. But I should have specified different bullets since .22LR and 5.56 are indeed the same cailber.
Maybe something along the lines of a metal bullet encased in sand or something, that would disintegrate after leaving the barrel. Because if you're doing this sort of thing barrel life is probably the least of your concerns. Accuracy is probably the biggest problem here.
No no no no no.
>Fire desired bullet out of proper gun.
>Continue this till you get a slug that is undamaged apart from the rifling cuts.
>Load round into a sabot.
>Load sabot into larger caliber bullet.
>Shoot saboted subcaliber round at higher velocities with proper accuracy.
>LEO finds the sabot
>Plan becomes obvious
Try a chamber adapter with the same/similar diameter projectile perhaps. Or just get your gun paperless, do the deed, and melt the fucker down.
Do you address a Brigadier General as "general" or something else?
Some of the cartridges that can be used in the Medusa have bullets that are too small to engage the rifling I still want one that would take every .45, and it may not be a good idea, but some people supposedly fire live 7.62x54r cartridges in Steyrs made for 8x50r as part of the process of making cases.
Could an adapter for STANAG mags be made for an AK-101 that would simply attach to the magwell?
Unless the AK-101 does something weird to the basic design of mags/receiver, absolutely should be possible without major work. A few types of 5.56 AK have such adapters and the only reason they aren't more common is AKs, especially non-7.62x39/5.45 ones, are minimal parts compatibility across makers already.
To chime in on making 8x50r and the updated 8x56r is that x54r headspaces correctly in those guns.
In regular conversation it's always the "core" rank. Lt Colonel is just Colonel, brigadier general and major general are General, Rear Admiral is Admiral, and so on. You could also just say "sir."
Firing x54 in an 8x56r would be a bad idea. Now people will fire x54 cases with a primer and some bit of powder without a projectile to fireform them to 8x56r size which is fine, but I wouldn't put it past somebody to "directions unclear" that process.
I've encountered Forgotten Weapons and InRange channels on youtube and I kind of got hooked on them and am very much enjoying their videos. Are they a source to be trusted, or do they have any biases I should be aware of? Since I'm new to this whoel gun hobby, I have no idea whether they are to be trusted or not. It seems like reddit is in love with them, which is kind of a red flag for me.
Invidious embed. Click thumbnail to play.
Is this bait? Anyway, Forgotten Weapons is mostly fine, but InRange TV is extremely biased. Vid related is a good example: this piece of shit they dare to call an innovative firearm is the result of those two nincompoops making frankenguns in PowerPoint of all programs. And Ian and Karl praise it to high heaven, so they are either retarded, or were paid off.
No, it's not bait. I was never into guns until I discovered that channel. From some searching around, it seems like these two are unironically Satanists, so another big red flag for me.
Invidious embed. Click thumbnail to play.
That is Karl, and he actually seems to be the problem here. He started commenting Ian's videos quite a while ago, and they were living close to each other, so they branded together. And that's how InRange TV came to be. Now, I don't know how to put it into words, but from what we can gather Ian is not a strong character, and so Karl can just "manhandle" him into doing shit. And Karl is an attention-seeking LARPer who likes to pose as various characters, from l33t hacker to ironic satanist. And he is very opiniated on various topics, even though his opinions are oftentimes questionable. So you should watch Forgotten Weapons without too much worry, but not InRange TV. Instead of the later you should watch other channels, e.g. C&Rsenal.
Also, people like to argue if they are leftists or not, but I think that Ian is just too soft to hold any serious convinctions, while Karl, as I said, is a LARPer who wants attention. He literally drives a Kübelwagen and dresses in German ww2 camo, but has no problem shouting about shooting da ebil gnadzees. It's just a can of worms people here like to open whenever these two are mentioned.
Interesting. Looking back, it's kind of obvious how much Karl speaks over Ian. I do remember Karl being associated with some l33t haxx0r stuff and how I failed to find anything significant.
Forgotten Weapons - Sure, it's a great reference. He's gotten more used to speaking these days and have much more shooting experience to provide a better perspective on guns he does fire, as well as the interesting points on ambidexterity. I can see how some find his voice a bit grating but there's some neat shit and he typically keeps things interesting.
InRangeTV - Like >>640227 said it has some serious problems - that's your tl;dr.
Karl is a special case; I've seen him described as a guy that gets into a hobby specifically to be better than you. He made a video about his "workout routine" that was so absurd and unnecessary that people thought he was joking.
He's worked in information security which he shorthands as INFOSEC constantly - yet he has little to no grasp of the internet itself.
He's done cowboy action shooting as well as national match shooting - but his manual of arms using antique guns is similar to a teenager learning to jerk off and his description of marksmanship and obliviousness to reloading for it results in borderline Wikipedia knowledge - he said he didn't reload in a past video, but now he's claiming to be getting into it, likely for the purpose of attracting viewers interest.
He knows the mud tests draw controversy, as any sane person does, but he plays it off as no big deal to further incite anger - I assume, anyway, he's definitely autistic enough to lack comprehension of common disagreements - and misconstrues arguments as "Well what if"s on many similar topics not specifically related to mud tests.
He's very fucking annoying when it comes to anything tangentially-related to Ian and he's dragging him into some very poor situations, though it's not hard to see that he envies Ian's popularity when he tries to push his own position as "Gun Satan", the nu-Satanist LARPer he is.
Paul Harrell has a lot of good technical advice.
I find it's best to have Ian at 1.5x speed.
How do convince European, city-going NPC's along with the Canadian and Australian variant that (((gun control))) was never something the West ever supported until the (((central bankers))) came along? They take it as a badge of honour as it they think it makes their countries "safer". I mean who cares about crime statistics being concentrated among majority non-White cities in the US which mostly has nothing to do with gun-related crimes, just let good ol' Professor Goldbergstein to fix this problem.
Apparently owning a gun to them is a "racist backwards redneck fat American" thing to do, and not to mention their undying love for Hymiewood blockbusters (i.e. whatever (((Marvel))) comes up with). They still think the US is majority European decent and to them, these people are "racist". (((Gun control))) is literally fed through their heads via news outlets that are funded by US (((MSM))), that and "free press and independent news sites" like The Cuntington Post and The Young Roaches. This would mean that these lemmings are following something they shouldn't, but it lead to claim it as their idea anyways.
How do you win an argument against these types of NPC's? From my personal on JewTube, they almost never reply. Which signifies that they are all normalcattle scum who are concerned about whoring around their Instagangrene and Faceberg accounts. I would also like to know if you foreign anons here ITT have also dealt with your own NPC's I've mentioned before.
P.S. I may have posted this similar question before, but the reason why I'm posting a similar one again is because the last ones only got replies from other US and Australian anons, and not much else from any other. However I did manage to get one Hungarian to answer my question, which surprised why they also have strict gun laws, too. I'd expect UK-tier gun laws to be in the UK only, and not mcuh anywhere else. Even Australia's gun laws are more lax.
Because Onkel Adi laxed gun laws therefore guns are bad. Thank you huwhite bruda.
How common was it for commanders to actually take part in combat instead of just give orders in the days before firearms?
You don't. What you're trying to do is the equivalent of discussing the historicity of Jesus Christ with a medieval serf.
How much would a SAR 4800 with a 16" barrel be worth? Guy is offering 1600.
> SAR 4800
They're huehue built guns. Sounds like he chopped the barrel due to them coming in only in 20 and 18 inch barrels. I'd say 1600 is a fair price though try to get it down a hundred or so.
ADCOR makes a bcg with a plastic female hygiene pad stapled to where the ejection port is. Supposedly it keeps shit out like a dust cover, wipes the gunk on back edge of the port when cycling.
I could get one for cheap off a friend, and I have an upper without forward assist or dust cover mount. Is it worth it, or should i just get a cheap standard bcg off the market? Will the plastic assscraper break, fly off the ejection port, and kill my dog? Does it keep out the dirt or is it just marketing talk?
I have never seen an AR-15 in the continental United States fail to fire due to ingress of foreign debris without it being caused by some retard doing a mud test.
Unless you're planning to wipe your ass with your bolt carrier there is no reason to have something like that. Just get a regular BCG with nitride or your memecoating of choice instead of solutions looking for problems.
What does the crab marking on this side of the plane mean? Saw it at Wright-Patterson.
The six things next to the door? They're camels. Could be kill marks of some sort. Also odd trying to find the site listed in that watermark takes you to a Google Maps of a location in Hamburg, Germany.
Let others beta-test.
Just get a normal nitrided carrier and a little lube and you'll be fine. It's best to pay for a solution when you actually have a problem.
I personally recommend ALG go juice. It's nontoxic, doesn't gum up over time (like other bio-lubes/cooking oils), it stays around, is extremely slick, and is also very thin so large particles of shit aren't nearly as prone to sticking. Decent in freezing temps too, though I doubt it could handle past -20F
How stupid would it be to try to recreate the Lolife from Metro Last Light? I don't think it would be too hard would it?
Looks like one variation of a chechen borz.
Depending on the caliber sure, you could make a cheapo blowback.
If you intend to make it a .44 like in Last Light I'd give a resounding "no"
How do you think an ambidextrous hand grenade should work?
What do you consider an acceptable level of safety?
It's based on the Mauser M1906 pistol so it's feasible.
Make it so you can shift the spoon from one side to the other, put the pull ring at the top of the fuze. Or delete the spoon altogether depending on if you're okay with that safety wise. Could also just have a spoon with leaves on either side that you could hold down just one to prevent it going off, but then it's going to be more complicated and failure prone.
>Apparently owning a gun to them is a "racist backwards redneck fat American" thing to do
The gun debate has become so big, so propagandized, and so omnipresent that it's very hard for people with no exposure to guns to view them as mere objects. They see guns nonstop in media, but never associated with normal people, so guns become a sort of cult item distinct from real life. Most don't consciously think in terms of "baby-seeking assault clips" the way we joke, but subconsciously there is a definite perception of guns as something inherently evil, as malign instruments of death. Before you can start trying to convince NPCs (which is a problem in its own right), you'd have to tear down that prejudice first.
The only reason I was able to become pro-gun myself was because of things like Forgotten Weapons. Presenting them as historical artefacts and mechanical devices helped break the mystique and thus the demonization. That wasn't what turned me pro-gun on its own, but once that change in perception happened the fearmongering and contradictory anti-gun arguments started to crumble.
Of course, that could only work on people willing to watch (and actually watch, not just look at) a 20 minute video about history and the workings of mechanical devices, and even that little is beyond most normalfags. Leading them in with the right video can help to a limited extent; Ian's videos on shitty Chinese knock-off guns might be a good choice, since they provide both some humour value you don't need much knowledge of guns to pick up on, as well as incentive to better understand guns so you don't feel "left out" of the rest of the joke. Given how much NPCs dislike feeling excluded from the group, that might be effective at helping to convince them to keep watching. It still wouldn't be enough for most though.
Some of those .50 BMG AR uppers out there are selling for around $200 more than the serbu. That is still considerably less expensive and as far as I can see, with the right barrel length, it keeps all the ballistic advantages of any dedicated platform like the HS .50. The only downside is i'd have to change out the trigger mechanism to properly strike .50 BMG primers, though not sure if the inverse applies to 5.56 with a .50 trigger mechanism.
Speaking of ar uppers and .50 BMG wasn't there some legislation that could possibly mean i'ld have a deadline to get one or be forced to buy it through an FFL?
>wasn't there some legislation
Arbitrary ruling by the BATFE says they're firearms now. And because they had previously been told to knock it off with the open letters, they just sent letters to each manufacturer of said uppers individually. It's still up in the air, legally.
>It's still up in the air, legally.
Funny, that's how I'd describe the entirety of the constitution since 1877.
>Excommunication in medieval times is a very serious thing
Excommunication is a serious thing period.
The Gregorian reforms were specifically targeted at preventing kings from electing the bishop of Rome after gross misconduct from a garbage HRE appointed Pope. That was basically the point in which the vatican outlined it's ability to depose and threaten rulers via excommunication.
The best form of government is one that thrives in accordance to divine virtue, within the realm of divine law, and maintains the time tested traditions of the nation it inherits, which amounts to what we would call today clerical fascism/clerical caesarism/clerical monarchy.
If you read evola you'd find that in every ancient civilization, including nonwestern ones, the authoritarian ruler (no matter what specific government he ruled through), was considered syononymous with the divine or considered divinely ordained to his position of power. In the case of the Roman monarchy they even went so far as to periodically affirm his virtue within the relm of their pagan gods during his rule. If he failed such a test he would be dethroned.
This, Krauts aren't stupid people, but their intelligence only manifests in making things more complex which becomes a huge problem in mechanical engineering (and honestly most fields).
Weird question but how would underwater firearms work on land? Would they work or not?
The few underwater guns that exist do work on land but suffer accuracy issues. The only effective solution found so far is the use of dart-like ammunition that is stabilized through its movement through the water. No water, no stabilization, loss of accuracy.
The concept of Evola's that you describe has nothing to do with excommunication, and is in fact totally antithetical to it. Evola's ideal has the king as the pope, not being subject to him.
The fact that the church has the balls to be above government is what makes them wicked.
I'm no christian but even Jesus said Render what belong to Caesar upon Caesar.
The international, centralized Church is cancer and the vandals should have burned it down.
don't forget Ian and south africa. He is a very weak man.
They're leftist retards, so if you care about that type of shit don't watch. If you want no nonsense technical babble with some dry humor watch Paul Harrell, if you want humor with some technical stuff on the latest and greatest tacticool stuff watch GarandThumb. Really the only reason to watch FG is because Ian the Gun Cuck gets his greasy little hands on really cool, rare, and inque firearms and that's about it. Everything InRangeTV does you can find other channels that do it better and with no bias so there's no real reason to watch that heaping pile of dogshit.
The head of the church and the state should be one and the same. The moment you start secularization religiousity starts losing its importance and influence among the population while the state loses a solid moral background in enforcing its laws and will on the people. Sorry if my English is broken, as a magyar chicken farmer its hard…
Aluminum barrels suck in rifle calibers. Would non-steel barrels for a 22lr be fine?
>They're leftist retards
No they're not. You're just being a pissy little bitch because they wouldn't let you shit up the comment section of their Rhodesian gun videos with a bunch of "nigger nigger nigger" keyboard diarrhea.
Get a rifled liner. They're not that expensive.
Yes they are. As to "not letting me shit up the comment section" I unsubscribed because of the H9 shilling primarily, don't regret it at all.
Calling everyone not in the alt-right a leftist retard is like a commie saying everyone right of Mao is literally Hitler.
As far as the hats and other gear goes, they wear what surplus is available and fits with the theme of the video. If Ian is covering a Soviet SMG he's going to do it in an Ushanka. When they did Fingolian funs they wore Fingolian attire.
And he's not wrong about the "white genocide" in SA either. If Malema and Zuma had their way there would be a genocide, but there isn't one happening yet. There are no government death camps, no cattle cars packed with white families, no gas chambers or carbon monoxide gassing vans. This is still the "Kristallnacht" phase: encouraged theft, property destruction, mob violence. I don't like where it's going but there's still a ways to go before Auschwitz 2.0
>And he's not wrong about the "white genocide" in SA either. If Malema and Zuma had their way there would be a genocide, but there isn't one happening yet.
Gas yourself you slimy kike.
Ian got mad at me for pointing out that Vickers was wrong about Rhodesia, i.e him calling it an apartheid like Israel and South Africa. Over that debacle I opted to not let him touch some of my oddball forgotten shit.
>chambers or carbon monoxide gassing vans
And how stupid would it be to attempt to do .44 Magnum?
Aren't they satanists too or something?
Also if /k/ hates their channel so much I'm surprised someone hasn't used their autism powers to hack their youtube and email and use it to delete it from the face of JewTube.
Are signal jammers a good thing to have in case of SHTF?
Not useless, but it's situational. Put your money towards ammo, guns, food and other stuff before you put it there.
VFG and a stock, if he ain't a Fed he's fucked.
Whats a Russian youtube channel thats like polenar tactical or garand thumb?
I'm looking for a good, simple trench shovel.
Amazon, Ebay, and any (((search engine))) is shit.
Looking for something similar to pic, however made in a non-shit tier country or company and that will last me a long time inawoods.
Thanks in advance.
Look for a Russian e-tool. I used to have one (until I lost it quite some time ago now). They are cheap (especially here, in Poland, we got a lot of cheapo russkie milsurp shit here, but I'm sure you can find something inexpensive in cannuckland), reliable and literally multi purpose. You can dig shit with it, you can sharpen one side to chop shit with it, hell, you can use it as a weapon, too (works like a hatchet, especially if you sharpen one side). I'm sure you could even use it as a goddamn frying pan, too. Never failed me, never broke, I probably lost it when I was moving houses a couple years back.
>There are no government death camps, no cattle cars packed with white families, no gas chambers or carbon monoxide gassing vans. This is still the "Kristallnacht" phase: encouraged theft, property destruction, mob violence. I don't like where it's going but there's still a ways to go before Auschwitz 2.0
You don't know what genocide is, do you?

ATF makes a clone of kraut ones like that both in non and folding. Varusteleka has BW surplus as well as genuine Finnish surplus ones for less than 35.
I'm getting a Yugoslavian M48 in a couple of days with some leftover cosmoline on it since the gunstore that was selling it cleaned what they could and I wanted to know your guys' thoughts on it. Any tips you can also give would be greatly appreciated since this is my first milsurp rifle that I bought and I'm looking forward to starting a collection of milsurp rifles to pass down to my kids one day and I fucking hope they don't melt them down into some dumb steel coffin because I'll come down as an angry spirit to put them in it if they ever do.
I'm looking for a compact pistol for CC. I'm hard set on striker fire but other than that I haven't made up my mind. Considering a. Sig P320, or Beretta nano/APX Carry (they're the same gun with different slides) I've got a decent discount off of wholesale with Beretta, but it will take a while for my order to go through, and I could get the 320 for around $500. I've got access to an FFL who is willing to sell me anything for dealer cost plus background check and tax.
Thoughts on what? How to clean it?
Disassemble and soak/scrub everything but the furniture with mineral spirits. Once all the parts are clean go over it with some CLP and give everything a nice coat of that shit. For the furniture I think I just wiped off all I could, then went at it with CLP. I didn't mind the tackiness, and once I took it out shooting a few times on hot days and wiped it down as I shot it went away.
By thoughts I meant how did you like the rifle, was it pleasant to shoot, any troubles you had that I can prepare for when I take it through its paces, what ammo to use/avoid if possible, etc.
As long as you're not shooting turkshit, serb MG ammo or something someone pulled out of Africa you're fine. Most factory 8x57 is underloaded due to shitty unconverted turk shit grenading with turkshit ammo. I would honestly advise getting into handloading for that cartridge.

Hey /k/, how many of you have lights on your tactical rifles/pistols? Is it nessecary to have a light on both, or is one more important? I found a good deal on the SF X300 ultra, but thought I'd get some thoughts on the topic before I bought it.
So is this made for cucked countries that ban semi-autos, or are have we seriously given up hope and started to engineer ways around a US semi-auto ban.
Are we already safe from the gookmoot takeover?
I really, really hope it's for cucked countries. Even Canada doesn't suck that bad. Though not for a lack of trying…
They explicitly say its for international sales in shitholes.
>>639877 and >>638569 from the futuristic thread reminded me about something.
That stuff they're wearing looks pretty bulky but isn't military technology and doctrine generally shifting towards mobility > protection in the coming years or does that only count for vehicles?

The current trend in infantry is to completely ignore decades of research and centuries of experience about human anatomy, and saddle them with way too much equipment that is distributed in the worst possible way. A suit of plate armour is literally lighter and less demanding on the wearer than what modern soldiers wear. It's overall better engineered too.
Invidious embed. Click thumbnail to play.
Contrast that video with this. An average human can carry about 20-30kg for a long period of time, and ideally most of that weight is carried on the hips. This is true about that plate armour, and also about the equipment of the average ww2 soldier. It's because basically every army used a belt with suspenders to carry pouches. Then in 70s and 80s someone had the bright idea to switch to vests, because they can carry more pouches. It's true, but the weight is carried by the upper body instead of the hips, and so it's a lot more tiring. Also, that additional space encouraged everyone to give more equipment to the soldiers to carry, so they also exceed that limit of 20-30kg. The armed forces of the USA literally crippled thousands-upon-thousands of people by making them march around carrying too much weight.
>The greatest threat for a modern soldier is to collapse under literal thousands dollars worth of heavy technological equipment
What a time to be alive
Any good bag or backpack that is suited to carry short rifles and machine pistols with few spare mags?
How short we talking, like OAL of said gun?
Excellent points to be made known. Plate armor was incredibly well designed, incredible protection, well engineered for weight and maneuver. The grandest of hand to hand armor, a technological marvel. In history many heavy infantry and heavy cavalry fought each other to a standstill, and with the end stage steel plate armor it was easy enough to get into battle and have men retire form the field exhausted rather than wounded, insomuch that it was even more so then than before. If the firearm had not come along it would be dominating battles today. Masterpieces of form and function.
The firearm eventually became too powerful and could overcome the best armor they could produce, and the other negative was that plate armor became heavier and heavier to match the bullet. The Swedes began the first real modernization of the army back in the 1600's many would say, the dropping of armor wasn't just to make the infantry quicker and more manueverable, but also because as gunfire replaced fast firing bows, it became less and less useful. Certainly we see how armor persisted longer, cuirassers and the like did very well in the cavalry for some time later. The centralization of nations also played a roll, more mercenaries and conscripts and less house soldiers, larger armies, meant that armoring troops in high tier armor was expensive just to have them mowed down by a cheap lead ball fired by another cheap conscript.
But beyond whining about the perhaps early demise of glorious steel plate armor, its interesting to see the de-armoring of troops during the old period and the re-armoring of them now under certain doctrines. I think the argument for armor today is the fact that it can and will stop the most powerful standard mustket rounds of today (by muskets I mean modern battle rifles), which is the main reason to consider them. I think the other part is that maneuver of infantry has changed in importance, its a long time since switching to 10 foot pikes instead of 16 foot, that reducing armor for mobility to fight against the tercios, and the modern way infantry crawl and fight and pin each other with gunfire.
I think the current idea is that unarmored infantry don't gain much advantage of maneuver that actually brings a combat advantage in modern "leap frog' warfare, and that armor that keeps soldiers not simply alive, but keeps them in battle even after solid enemy hits to the chest vitals does bring a combat advantage of value. Break the young man's joints and bones, but keep him alive in battle and he's better off not taking a bullet to the chest and dying and returning home with joint injuries. Staying in the fight is more important than maneuver. That armor has always been a combat advantage and we can afford to produce enough to arm the regular infantry. Even if it does not protect like good knight armor, universally, it protects like old Roman heavy infantry armor (helmet, torso) to keep soldiers in battle to keep fighting. It certainly has its merits, even if it has its share of issues.
As a end and side note after a long post nobody will read, I don't like the current vest trend either, I think its kinda bullshit. Stocks out so far forward it interferes with the individual's ability to maneuver and move his weapon and equipment around, it puts 100% of the weight on the fucking shoulders. I still have my rig as a traditional belt and suspenders because it works and shares the weight. I'm not the biggest fan of the new trend.
The point I want to make is not really about armour, it's only there to illustrate that today they really have no idea what they are doing. Basically ww2 German infantry equipment was better designed than what we have today, simply because they carried all the weight on the hips and didn't go overboard. Even if you have a plate carrier, it's extremely retarded to use that to carry the pouches. And in that video they actually give him a second vest over that. The US Army had something potentially good going on with the ALICE gear, but instead of improving that they just thrashed everything in favour of vests.
So battle-jackets like picrelated are a bad idea?
>it's only there to illustrate that today they really have no idea what they are doing. Basically ww2 German infantry equipment was better designed than what we have today
Pretty sure if this was true for current doctrine every single military in the world wouldn't be using LBE on the shoulders. Modern equipment has it's ups and downs. Modern doctrine for superpowers does not use regular foot infantry anymore. The entire worlds army's are completely mech/mot by now
Folded AKS-74U or Zastava M92 (50 - 55cm)
If we're talking bag, then a M6 Bazooka bag would probably work pretty well if you don't mind magazines rattling around. As for a backpack I know varusteleka has one that is around 50cm long.
As a guy who has that sort of webbing the weight tends to sit more so on the shoulders than the waist where the belt sits.
So wait, how does it work? Does the trigger pull the bolt back and it just slams home like some fucked up retard open bolt? Is that what I'm seeing?
Nobody seems to know if there was any truth to that from the start or not. I'm backing up a bunch of shit just in case though.
It's double action, the trigger pulls back and cocks the hammer each time. Which means it isn't semi-auto.
So you basically only need some part of the rifle to be manually operated and not the whole mechanism? It does reloads using some kind of automatic mechanism so is it treated like a fully semiautomatic assault weapon? If that's not the case, is it possible for strayans to get this beauty with the disconnector removed?

They got some oddball thumb action thing overthere already.
any higher quality images of the LMG11 out there? would a caseless ammo pistol be usefull? Whats the quietist gun in existence?
>would a caseless ammo pistol be usefull?
Yeah, why not. It could even somehow recoil lighter because of the lack of ejection.
>Whats the quietist gun in existence?
The one that doesn't shoot. Or the Ots-38 or QSPR with the gas cutoff rounds, amusingly, revolvers, or PSS with the same round, or just subsonic 22lr suppressed
Damn, they just need some open hammer blowback guns.
Here's one faggot complaining about a nigger wanting to shoot down a SpaceX ship by calling it "Dos' r aliens!" from a "Daily Dose of Internet" compilation video. He equated the nigger to all Americans (I'm talking about the ones of European decent here, because apparently in the current state of ZOG, virtually anyone can be an "American").
Said he is "terrified" of them because muh ebil guns. So far the replies are all the same stereotypical banters, so no harm done but it still makes my blood boil somehow. Also I didn't skim through all of it so I want at least anyone ITT to tell me how the reply section actually looks like, I'll leave a link to the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AzI9vsWGQlM&t=59s. It really irks me how their level of humor revolves around liberal capitalist degeneracies and 9gag/Plebbit maymays. Is this their way of living now?
>Treat Jew Better by Rucka Rucka Ali
Isn't that guy an Israeli yid living in the US who went on to the "centrist side of politics" along with Sargoy of Mossad? Really makes you think, huh? I mean hot damn, these Zioshit kike-apologist normalfags are cancerous as all hell.
They got DA revolver carbines over there.
Are the barrels and projectiles for 9mm Parabellum and .357 Magnum freely interchangealbe, or is it the kind of thing that works but should be avoided?
The diameter of a 9mm Parabellum is .355, so it would be fine out of a .357 barrel. Not so sure about forcing .357 through a 9mm barrel though.
Its possible to use .357 158gr lead in a 9x19. You just end up with a slightly heeled bullet. Mind you a 158gr bullet doesn't leave much room in the case itself. 147gr is pushing it as is when it comes to case space.
If your gun explodes such as by blocking the barrel or using a faulty/severely damaged gun, how much damage will it do to you?
Would wadd cutters function well for bottle necked cartridges such as 357 sig?
That really depends, a barrel obstruction in a .22 is going to be less lethal than a 10 gauge. It's like asking how much damage a car crash will do to you.
Depends where it decides to grenade if it does in the first place.
I've seen an ambo get called on a guy because he used a faulty handload that sent the bolt into his shoulder. So it can fuck you up pretty bad.

Like others have said, it's going to depend on what the gun is, how powerful the ammo is, and what/where the point of failure is. With pistols the chamber is right above the hands and with bullpups right below the head, whereas with rifles it's between the hands and away from the body. More powerful rounds will obviously have a bigger boom. If kaboom is because of a blocked barrel, if the blockage is closer to the muzzle, kaboom will be (slightly) less severe. If there's a relatively weak "escape point" for all the explosive energy, and it doesn't create any shrapnel, kaboom can be survived with only minor injuries. For instance, in this vid, and in a lot of other AR-15 kabooms, the thing that ruptures is the case head. Because a lot of the gas can escape through that rupture, pressure doesn't build up in the chamber, and kaboom is relatively mild.
