Makarov general thread!
Show off your Makaroni and talk about Makaroni.
This is mine. I'm thinking about selling it so I can buy one from Classic. Any thoughts or opinions on this action or the Maks at Classic?
East German Mak I picked up 2 years ago.
Guy I bought it from even had the box it came in.
I hope all Mak owners can appreciate how great a deal these milsurp maks are. I could see new production maks with the same reliability and quality would easily go for $700 on an American market.
Recent Purchases thread?
Got my first AK, 1000 rounds of 7.62 on the way. Not sure if I should shit it up with magpul furniture, anyone have a zhukov stock? Also should I just stick with the irons, is putting a red dot on a wasr stupid?
Lets see what goodies you all got for /K/wanzaa.
Put a Zhukov on my wasr because shitty wood was shitty. Has held up pretty well. Gets knocked around a good bit and scuffed up but still going strong. I'd tell you go for it unless you're one of those "rifle is fine" types
Why shouldn't I own 2 if these?
Post em, I love animals.
Dump pouch puppers are best puppers
Post your favorite camo (that you own)!
Was the AR style charging handle a good design? Would it have been better if it used a more standard style charging handle like most other rifles?
It's an alright design, it keeps your hands away from the chamber during manipulation, doesn't reciprocate, and allows the weapon to have an easily usable dust cover, but it also means you cannot slam the bolt into battery normally, requiring a forward assist.
Side charging designs are more intuitive I think.
Do these new drones give anyone else a boner?
So what does /k/ think of the Italian Military? Are they any good (do they even do anything)? And how good are their guns, planes, and tanks?
It's all pretty good stuff. They have a very solid domestic arms industry, Finmeccanica, Oto Melara, Iveco, Beretta, Fincantieri, etc, which produces some of the best hardware in the world that their own forces benefit from.
Anyone work with Sikhs in their country's armed forces?
Are they really bro-tier?
Anyone work with white people in their country's armed forces?

What's the best bushcraft knife other than a mora? And what's a good one (other than a mora) that won't break the bank? Also, to keep it /k/ related, how would you use said knife for self defense via a wild animal.
When I posted the question they all went aspergers on me and insisted that knife threads belong on /k/. Anyways, I'll check that out. I already have a mora and just wanted to know what else was out there.
hey will you guys please help me find a good sks to buy? I'm having trouble finding the right one to buy. thanks in advance
Interesting guns thread.
M-6 Scout. First gun I ever owned.
Looking to purchase a good, dependable survival knife, front runner right now is the KA-BAR with the Kraton handle. What does /k/ like?
Stock Ka-Bar's suck. The ontario SP1 will treat you better if you really want a clip point, but in a survival knife you probably want to avoid a clip point.
>KaBar BK2 is god-tier and won't snap on you if you're batoning or chopping wood
>Gerber LMFII is god-tier because integral sharpener, pommel can be used as a mallet in the sheath
>ESEEs are great
>OKC ASEK is good but smallish
