Torture tests of M4 and M4A1 with 30 rounds magazines:
First video: M4 fails after 535 rounds. Start of shooting at 0:02. Barrel drooping at 1:20. Catastrophic failure at 1:48. RPM: ~303.
Second video: M4A1 (heavier barrel than standard M4) fails to cycle after 911 rounds. Start of shooting at 0:11. Failure to cycle at 4:46. RPM: ~199.
Torture test of G36A0 with 100-rounds magazines back in the early 90s:

That's pretty darn good IMHO familia.
In reality though, no soldier is ever going to fire 500+ rounds on full-auto non-stop. That's far more ammunition than a soldier can even carry.
Nowadays which is the most common in south america/africa/asia: the 47 or the 74?
>asking a newfag question on /k/
>expecting legitimate replies
Seriously, though, it's neither. It's the akm, which is basically an ak 47 with a stamped steel receiver, rather than the milled steel receiver that the ak 47 had.
Right so I just discovered how to kill a nugget. You wipe all the oil off of it and the bolt seizes.
Got this FEG hi power off /k/ recommendations. Feels great haven't had the chance to shoot her yet.
/k/ get any other new guns lately?
Looks sick anon, much better cond than mine.
Id recommend removing the mag disconnect, unless you plan on dropping the mag out in a wrestling match. It makes the trigger 100 tomes better.
I still think the Hi Power is the best feeling gun to rack a round in. The slide just feels so good, and the sound gives me a boner.
I'd post a pic of my wood gripped Mk III, but I don't wanna get up.
Sup /k/, I have got a revolver and kind of problem with it. A spring (number 27 at picture), which moves the click, was broken. The mechanism is working normally, but click is hanging out while the drum inserted. I afraid of reliability weakness now. Can I use this gun with this defect?
ps Sorry for my English, Im from the country of drunken suka blyat bears.
Do /k/ommandos have recommendations about good straight bolt action rifles?
Schmitt-Rubin and K31 family are the only ones worth mentioning. Get one of those surplus, or a Mauser action. I personally prefer the Enfield, but for most uses, the Mauser would get you farther.
Don't mind me, just posting the king of CCW.
Sold 2/3 of my collection and this is the updated pic. Post collection /k/0mmrades
>Sold 2/3 of my collection
for what purpose?
ITT: It's the first gulf war, it's dusk, we're all in our sleeping holes.
>It's the first gulf war, it's dusk, we're all in our sleeping holes
I think on of the reasons I do is that the majority of other peppers seem to seem to be those certain types and If SHTF I don't want Jesus freaks, Mormons, and "conservatives" dominating the post-SHTF.
I must survive, for sanities sake.
I don't. I realize there are instances where you may have limited access to resources for a short period of time, and having a 1 week water/food/shelter supply is useful as well as the means to defend yourself, but the idea of a total 'WROL' environment in modern society during this globalized era is a morbid fantasy to day dream about. I shoot guns because it's fun.
Hi /K, I'm looking to buy a Springfield Socom M14 at Oaks Gun show next weekend.The price ranges from $1500-2000. I just want to know is this the best option for starting to build my DMR? This will be my first rifle so I want to make a good choose for the money. If you can post images and prices for better options to help me make a decision. Please and Thank you in advance.
As a lover of M14s, do yourself a favor and buy an AR-10 instead. Unless you're a canuck, then a M308 is a good choice for a first gun if you cant stand slav shit SVTs/SKSs and you can afford the ~$1 per round .308.
Uh guys, might want to check this out
This is the end.
I have a German K98k carbine. I've fired a lot of rounds through it, and after y ears it has developed this black gunk between the rifling. Gun shop told me it's fucking perfectly fine. I'd like to get that shit out, and I can't find ouut anything about this shit. I used M-pro 7 several times last night. pics related
what's that stuff in the backpack of the guy on the left?
How's the hunting in New Zealand?
>no seasons or bag limits for large game
IIRC when the Euros came over they brought loads of game species with them to stock the island with. Then, Without any natural predators to keep their numbers in check, the animal populations exploded. Now they have issues with deer and elk overpopulation.
How hard would it be to make a modern Ithaca 37 capable of (intentional) slam-firing?
I know it has a trigger disconnect that prevents it from slam-firing, but I want to know if I simply have to remove that to get it to work how I want, or if the trigger disconnect serves some other critical function that prevents me from doing that without fucking up the gun in some other way.
I know some of you here must know this kind of stuff. I googled the shit out of this question and found absolutely nothing.
How do i into field endurance? such as running and fighting endurance, sleep deprivation endurance, more focusing power,pain tolerance, etc etc...
How useless are pistols gunfights?
Let's talk machetes
I have a gerber gator jr, harbor freight machete, & a 10" old timer bowie knife I picked up for $10. I'm not too happy with them any one in particular. I want something beefier that I can use to chop rather then slice.
I saw the Camillus Carnivore . Seems pretty interesting. Maybe I should just get a hatchet instead
>inb4 no politics
Fuck you. If this goes through we will lose our guns in Switzerland and /pol/ is NOT a suitable place to discuss this.
Anyway. Swiss /k/ommandos, how fucked are we?
>Bitch from the Swiss Socialist Party says that there are 200 gun deaths per year in Switzerland
>Socialist bitch wants to adopt the coming EU gun ban if it just saves one life.
>Cunt says that there's a big risk by people that are not members of shooting clubs that own guns and that we should further restrict gun laws
>She's lobbying for MORE gun control with the help of the Greens and other anti-gun cunts
>Same cunt that called me a retard for making an infographic explaining how to get a gun in Switzerland
So, should we just start selling our semi autos to limit the damages and loss of money?
How's the situation outside Switzerland fellow European gun owners?
Which boresnake/ bore cleaning device does /k/ use fore 5,45x39 ?
I tried a .223 hoppes boresnake but it does not fit. Should i go for .177?
Can you point me out to a kit ?
I don't know all that much about plate armor. I'm a copfag and thought it might be a good idea to get a small plate to fit in my Kevlar vest. Now I keep seeing on the Internet and being told by random people at the department that it's a bad idea. They claim instead of stopping bullets it's just going to cause then to ricochet into my neck or head. Should this be a legitimate concern or is this just fudd science?
The term you are looking for is "Spalling." Yes, steel plates cause the bullet to fragment and splash, but between the plate's anti spalling coating and the fabric of the carrier itself, it's not a big deal.
What do you do with it?
I would recommend a full spread of torpedoes.
HMG hasn't posted any updates in months.
Was the STG-N pre-order a complete scam?
They will refund your money if you want them to. I've waffled on it a bit but I'm going to give them a couple more months. I placed my order in December. Called once a month since it's gone over time expected.
Thinking about building a .308 ar to expand my collection. Pros/cons? Where the fuck are there and .308 stripped lowers left?
Ruger Precision rifle 6.5 creedmoor with Vortex PST 6-24x50
Daniel Defense LW 14.5 barrel w/ pinned and welled device
Springfield XDM .40 4.5in
6in SW 629 .44mag
Longer range accuracy
They look sweet
Muzzle blast from the brake wakes up everyone else on the bench
Powerful enough to be a reliable deer rifle
Too fucking heavy to lug through the woods all goddamned day (stands are fine)
Muzzle blast pisses off fudds at the range who are firing their 2 shots a year
>Where the fuck are there any .308 stripped lowers left?
Got mine from...
Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I wouldn't bother, mine and my friend's had cycling issues, and were impractically heavy. Any instances where you want a semi auto, use an ar15; for long range use your rpr. If you want a fun rifle that can give a walloping, get a lever action or ruger #1 .45-70.
Yeah, my cheapo only wants full .308 loads, and doesn't like Real (weak) F'ing NATO. Ironically, Tula is it's favorite. Also runs well on Federal hunting loads. Otherwise, fails to fully cycle rearward. It'll eject fine, but may not travel far enough back to strip the next round from the mag.
I've found that
>everyone can pull a 30lb
>most men can pull a 60lb
and past that I've got no clue.
Anyone here know how buff you have to be to pull a 90-120lb bow? I don't wanna buy something I'm too pussy to handle. 'S gotta be a compound though.
Could you cook, or at least warm up, food with modern radar systems?
What are the odds of Russia invading Baltics/Finland/Belarus?
- Location, to rule Baltic Sea or at least have better access
- To show to NATO not to fuck with Russia
- To keep peoples eyes away from Russias inner problems
Maybe not good reasons but wars have happened for more stupid reasons.
I've never seen anyone post this on /k/ before, It's like innawoods but you can actually play too, so you can customize your operator and also play the game. There's tons of customization too.
try it out /k/
Can someone enlighten this clueless civilian about the role of the marines? Specifically, what is it that they do that can't be done by other branches?
To my untrained eyes, they seem to be a redundant and unnecessary branch.
