I'll start. If an M4 barrel is cut down to the front sight post with enough room to thread it for a suppressor, will the suppressor give the gas system enough pressure to cycle reliably? Just a thought that has been floating around since I heard about the Hearing Protection Act.
You mean like a MK18? The military's been running 10.3 barreled M4 uppers suppressed for a couple years now, it's overgassed but it works well enough.
I was thinking of ordering a Rock River Arms lower? is it good enough?
I don't really can if it's piston or DI. I clean my guns after every session, normally, so I see this as a non-issue.
A mil spec lower is a mil spec lower. Most people say just buy whatever is cheapest, or whatever rollmark you like the best. PSA is a good source for complete lowers if you want good value and a milspec lower.
No preference for piston vs DI, just get a DI upper then. Piston is special snowflake anways, only really useful if you're gonna suppress.
Any idea who's good for complete uppers and lower parts kit?
>Piston is special snowflake anways, only really useful if you're gonna suppress.
Figured as much. I'm an Illinoisfag so I can't suppress, yet.
Is there any scope mounts for a Browning Hi Power?
Like Fuck I've been googling all over and I can't find shit. I'm just trying to see if I can mount a red dot so I can have a nice pistol to hunt with
Why a railed gas block specifically?
For under $400, I think this is personally the best deal you're gonna get: http://palmettostatearmory.com/catalog/product/view/id/8555/
Comes with Bolt Carrier Group + charging handle, midlength DI system, chrome-lined, A2 front sight that you can always swap later but don't necessarily have to
>Why a railed gas block specifically?
Like the functionality of being able to put a BUIS on it, as most of my shooting is with a red dot on a M&P 15 right now. Fixed front sights kind of annoy me to be completely honest.
>For under $400, I think this is personally the best deal you're gonna get: http://palmettostatearmory.com/catalog/product/view/id/8555/
I was actually just looking at that package. how about something more like this? http://palmettostatearmory.com/catalog/product/view/id/2279/
Worth the money?
Why are 10.5 inch SBRs popular instead of 11.5? During the Vietnam war, they found out that 11.5 inches was more optimal than 10 on the Colt Commandos. Is it because of modern muzzle devices?
Ok guys, I need help identifying this 1911. A friend of mine bought this, and claims his grandfather gave it to him... Something something via military. Whatever. I'm doubting its authenticity. Note the serial number stamping, which looks awful (can provide better pic of this) and the $5 milsurp grips on a custom engraved 1911. I want to say this gun is a fake Colt 1911A1, but an old one. Any help is appreciated and I have more photos upon request. The only photo I don't have is a "C" mark located on top of the frame towards the muzzle.
That package is good too, FN chrome-lined barrel like the other upper. Only difference is yours is a 16'' barrel with a carbine gas system, the other one is a midlength 16'' system.
If you aren't going to ever swap out the A2 front sight, carbine length systems are OK but they will always be a tad overgassed on a 16'' barrel. Carbine gas systems were designed for the M4 which has a 14.5'' barrel.
Either one works, but a midlength will shoot a bit softer because there's less backpressure in the barrel. Given a choice on a 16'', I always recommend midlength over carbine length gas system.
Totally makes sense, I probably wouldn't have caught that right away. I really looking to keep with a carbine system, but being in Illinois I really can't with to anything shorter than 16''. Thank god I'm not in Chicago.
Every once in a while when I'm shooting cheap birdshot out of my old (1970s) Mossberg 500, a shell will get stuck in the chamber and I'll need to work the pump several times before the extractor grabs the spent shell.
What the fuck's going on there? Help?
Lemme tell you some shit about railed gas blocks: they fucking suck
Not only are they the ugliest fucking option possible, there's a major flaw in the design. The gas block gets fucking hot. MBUS regulars will melt on a railed gas block. You cannot flip your irons up or down after a few shots.
If the FSP bothers you, put your red dot 1/3 cowitness mount, and it'll keep your irons below the dot.
Looking into RIA 9mm 1911 for carry gun.
3'' or 4'', reconsider a .45, or Nay altogether?
Railed gas blocks are the baddest.
It looks ugly, assuming you're not using a meltable polymer sight, metal fold sights would still be way too hot to touch.
Plus it makes it way harder to change your handguard if you decided to.
Plus plus a lot of them aren't even level with the upper's rail.
Not intending on folding your sight? Get an a2 sight post.
That's fucking bullshit. You'd have to go through a full mag quickly to heat it up enough. Source? I own one, and I shoot it frequently. And ignore that bullshit about it making it hard to change the handguard. It's easier because you undo two set screws. Versus dremeling off the pins on an a2.
If you're all about single action + 9mm, check out the sig 938. I like ria, but sig is usually impeccable. Plus it's da/sa, so if you panic or a round needs a second strike, you just pull the trigger
Here you go - carbine gas system with a YHM folding front sight gas block on a 10.5" barrel runs fine with out any problem. Going to change out the muzzle device out from Griffin Armament to AAC so I can put a can on it.
if the Hearing Protection Act passes, does that mean i can use a suppressor to meet barrel length?
i got no problem pinning a suppressor if they become cheaper as a result of this law and the lack of tax stamp BS...
would this law make it okay to make our own suppressors as well if they are no longer regulated by the NFA?
>if the Hearing Protection Act passes, does that mean i can use a suppressor to meet barrel length?
No, only total length, like it is now.
>would this law make it okay to make our own suppressors as well if they are no longer regulated by the NFA?
The bad news is it isn't happening.
Since you said or I'll recommend flashlight, but only if you actually know how to use a weapon light properly. That is to say, for target identification, not a lighthouse beacon to warn them you're coming.
What can a .44 magnum pistol do to a woman's pussy?
See that would be cool if they had somehow rigged that up to be a functional selfie stick but it is instead a picture of three dudes pretending to take a picture.
And the first two dudes are fine but that last guy really is having a hard time with the concept.
Again, its going to get hot. It's part of the gas block. But still a better option than railed blocks I still don't understand why no fixed irons, or at least fixed fronts. It's works fine
>he doesn't shoot at least 5 magazines to make the trip to the range worth it
I'm looking into getting a second rifle. I like the look and feel of AKs and would like to get one or some kind of variant. I won't be getting the rifle immediately and plan of putting $1000 towards the rifle+after market modifications. What would /k/ recommend?
Asked in the last thread but I guess it reached its bump limit.
Noguns and from California, want something to protect myself from coyotes and skinwalkers innawoods. $350 budget.
I was looking at a 10/22 but those don't have much stopping power, and im not sure I want to jump on the meme wagon and get a nugget.
>Asked in the last thread but I guess it reached its bump limit.
Nah, some faggot just made a new one without checking the catalog.
>I was looking at a 10/22 but those don't have much stopping power
Perfect for defense against ground squirrels and snakes.
>not sure I want to jump on the meme wagon and get a nugget
A nugget is probably the best protection you can get on the cheaps. You'll only need to worry about brown bears or mountain lions. Even then the thing is so goddamn loud it might scare them off.
Advancements in expanding bullets and not having to rely on m193/m855 fragmenting. You can get away with a much lower MV and still get decent terminal performance.
Also for what theyre intended for, shorter is always better than longer.
AMD 65's are lots of fun, and loud as all fuck.
Anything Zastava seems to be the golden standard. They all come with side saddle optics mounts, and they're chambered in 5.56, 5.45, 7.62x39, and .308, for whatever your pleasure is.
I will heartily recommend against anything milled. It's a lot of extra money for not that much better performance (and in some cases, you're actually hindering yourself).
Water, bic lighter, either firesteel or a ton of waterproof matches, some form of compact shelter appropriate for your environment, some form of calorie-dense shelf stable food, socks, fixed blade knife. Those are non negotiable.
Optional/region specific items would be a water purifier, cold/wet weather clothing, firearm, machete/kukri, extra food, extra water storage, and fishing gear.
Obviously wet weather gear and fishing shit wouldnt make sense in AZ, and a 3 gal collapsible water container wouldnt make sense in the PNW.
I'm thinking about getting a mossberg 500 and for $300 new I can't find anything better. The one i'm planning on getting is pic related. It comes with 3 chokes and I can buy countless add ons for it so what does /k/ think?
Looking to finally pick up a carry gun instead of just a plinker or home defense tool.
My question is this; Is high polish metal considered tacky or something? I feel like some folks frown upon eye catching stuff like this? Why? Is it associated with a bad crowd?
Also fuck you i'm probably getting high polish anyway but thanks for the info
>Easy to find and relatively cheap?
It used to be both. Now it is neither. Capitalism, ho! About 30 cents a round for the cheap stuff online.
.22 will be much easier to find and much cheaper, but there's often buy limits. You ARE an asshole if you bring a bunch of friends to help you clear out Walmart immediately after a restock.
when i lived in CA as a funderage teenager i didnt even know about /k/ but i still got a 91/30 as my first gun. saw it in a ancient infantry weapons book in the library and liked it a lot. its a great first gun, it teaches you the basics of maintenance, operation of guns, and is cheap to own in shoot
tl;dr- no bandwagon but still buy a nugget. youll get a much more advanced start on the hobby if you learn on a 54r than if you just dink around with a .22 like a lot of people
I have an 8" barrel 300 BLK build awaiting and SBR stamp and Omega suppressor (soon I hope). Can I expect it to only work with the can on using subsonic loads? Anything I can do before going to the range to ensure it works (hand cycle it, etc)? If you've read this far, any protips? Its my first build, so I'm a bit worried something wont work. Been reading too many forums,
so I guess I have to choose between a gun with lots of stopping power but expensive to shoot or a gun with not so much if any stopping power but cheap to shoot.
alright, thanks. I don't know if I'm down with guns as a hobby yet, since this was for /innawoods/ protection, but knowing myself it'll probably develop into a hobby.
Can someone do me a solid? Anyone with an AK-47/74 measure the exposed length of barrel between arrows on pic related?
Full sized AK please.
I have a flattop upper that does not have M4 feed ramp cuts. My question is thus: Is it reasonable to ask a gunsmith to put M4 cuts into this upper or should I try to sell it and buy one with factory M4 cuts.
I know the advantage isn't that significant but I want to do and M4 clone and I already have this upper lying around.
Is there any way I could alter a Daisy 105b to be powerful enough to kill a rabbit?
No. You need at least a couple inches past the gas block or there won't be enough back pressure to cycle the bolt.
You would have to open up the gas port too much even with a piston.
For today's lucky ten thousand we have the term Dwell Time: the time between gas exiting through the barrel port and gas exiting the barrel through the muzzle or other non-cyclic gas ports.
Where can i find an ar10 DIY kid, 80%?

Yes, if it's pinned and welded. There are *plenty* of examples online of doing this. Some states (I believe just AL and WA) allow suppressors, but not SBRs.
A suppressor contributes to barrel length and overall length if it is pinned and welded to ATF specs.
Here you go:
>can't into registered DD for anti personnel 37mm fuz because is a sandnigger noguns

>We never signed it for 1000 Alex
Except we totally did sign the Hague Convention IV of 1907, Article 23.
>it is especially forbidden - To employ arms, projectiles, or material calculated to cause unnecessary suffering
Hollow points specifically made to expand are caught by that. We can, of course, still use hollow points in counter terrorist operations, as those groups are not signatory to the convention, and it only applies to other signatories. We don't typically do so out of respect for the earlier Hague Convention, despite not being signatory.
We could use expanding ammunition against another signatory if it happens to expand, but isn't specifically designed to. The chief example of which is open tip 7.62 real fuckin' NATO, which was designed with long range accuracy in mind, and expands as a side effect.
Is there a special body armor that is used for aquatic assaults? I've tried swimming in my plates and it's super fucking hard. Are seals and shit wearing something different or just no plates?
My dad gave me an M1 Carbine in a paratrooper configuration, but it seems to be set up like a pistol, with no wire stock.
I can't find a straight answer as to the legality of putting a stock on it. Is this some NFA SBR shit or isn't it?
That's a much shorter way of saying "No clue, I've never tried it or even thought about it before."
Seriously though, I'm a pretty strong swimmer, but with 35lbs of armor and equipment (steel weights substituted for ammo, ect.) it was a real struggle to swim to the surface or about 25 meters across the pool. I just can't see dudes swimming across a late in full kit then hopping out straight into combat.
waterproofness is the gorka's biggest flaw. I've owned one for a year now, and while I do love it and I wear the jacket all the time when it is cold out, I really can't recommend it for wet weather, but where I am it is very cold and dry so it is perfectly acceptable.
The suit overall is fantastic, very comfortable and extremely practical for innawoods use in cold weather.
What is /k/'s opinion on the Beretta px4 Storm? Any anons own one or have range time with one?
Second question, does it matter which .22lr conversion bolt I buy for my AR or do they work and hold up more or less the same?
Additional soft armor that covers the shoulder and upper arm. Added weight thats good for shrapnel really. Limits your range of motion and makes a bigger pain for shouldering a rifle or MG. That and they're just fucking awkward to wear.
Mossberg or a pre-2007 Remington. Modern remington is shit after being bought by freedom group. Mossberg is good to go.
The Mossberg Maverick 88 is like under 200, but quality is meh. The mossy 500 is around 350 and is legit.
Is the 2007 year cutoff for when the quality started to shit the toilet a hard cutoff? If it was made in, like 2006, would it still be a legit Remington and not one of those Cerberus copouts?
I've shot a 9mm full size px4 and it handles nicely, is comfortable in the hand, and as accurate as you need a pistol to be.
However, the rotating barrel is unnecessarily complicated for no real advantage. It can cause a suppressor to thread off too if that matters at all.
No idea about .22 conversions.
Also /k/'s opinion on all guns is that they are either shit or a meme.
>>27788044 is truly /k/'s opinion but that didn't seem to be what you really wanted so fuck you get off my /k/
If the barrel length is less than 16" it is more than likely an illegal sbr. You can't turn a rifle into a pistol by just removing the stock. If the barrel length is more than 16" feel free to slap a repro stock on.
Imported parts kits are generally not shit. You're good with whatever galil kit you pick, but just be aware that dimensions might vary and finding parts for a particular kit can be a bother. At least that's how Fal's are with metric vs imperial.
Did this guy mount the front sight backwards?
I bought the same sights, and they didn't give instructions. Plus, the direction of the sights are inconsistent throughout the marketing pictures.
See that little white spot? You're supposed to be able to see that. If it's on both sides, it's reversible. I don't know if that exact sight is reversible or not, but it's probably on backwards.
would it be possible to construct an efp inside a 12 ga shell?
If not, inside a 40mm grenade?
I'm thinking the biggest obstacle would be having material that will contain the impact detonated explosion well enough to deliver the necessary energy to properly create the penetrator.
>Can you have an explosive penetrator in a 40mm shell
Well, there is a reason they call them "high explosive DUAL PURPOSE"
Doesn't that shorten the life of the firearm? By friend has an ar with an adjustable gas black and leaves it on "1" because he says it can fuck the gun up if you use it with the port all the way open all the time.
How do I get ammo "GP90" for a Swiss 1889?
How come in the 40's is was such a cluster fuck for so many countries to get a decent semi auto rifle? Things like the abomination are an example.
Side question, does anyone have a link to the video of the ar15's blowing up with the orchestra music in the background?
Mine runs fine with a stock gas block and stock buffer. An H3 smoothed it out.
Because it's made to run in the worst conditions you can think of. Most of those torture tests on YouTube get it wrong. They get shit all over the gun and wonder why whatever gun does a better job of keeping it out works better. (Ar15)
Getting a gun like an sks dirty from neglect or just not maintaining it isn't going to phase it much. Even running it with no lube won't hurt it. Slavshit will work longer in a neglected state.
Lead hazards and transporting steel targets.
I'm not going to have a truck available to me this winter/spring in all likelihood so I'll be stuck transporting steel targets in my trunk. Would a heavy trash bag and trying not to breathe when I'm packing them be sufficient to avoid as much lead as possible? Short of stashing them and hoping no one steals them (public land), I can't really think of much else.

Recent AR convert from AKs and bolt rifles. Still trying to wrap my head around how light the rifle is.
1. Is there any functional difference between the ambi safety levers?
2. Is there a problem with using the M4 feed ramps and soft point ammo. I'm used to notching soft points with my AK and not giving a damn, but I don't know about ARs.
3. Is there a non-Soviet, reasonably priced (pic obviously not related) 60+ grain expanding ammo suitable for training use? FMJ is no-go at the various ranges around here, and I like to shoot around the same grain that I will hunt with.
I'll probably reload quality ammo with the 60gr bullets from Hornady, but all the OTM stuff seems to be either 68gr or 75gr.
1. Some ambi levers (and non ambi) are reduced throw, so they only rotate 45 degrees safe-to-fire instead of the normal 90 degrees. I have a short-throw on my AR, it's a small difference but I can't go back to the standard 90 degree now.
2. Shouldn't be an issue with normal use. If you use soft points exclusively, may want to spend some time cleaning the feedramps after heavy use, but I honestly don't think it will really matter.
Some generic ambi levels lack a 3rd position stop. Which is to say the third/auto position acts as a second safe position, but some people find it very annoying that it does not stop on semi when rotating that direction from safe. DSA is one of those 3pos semi safeties. RRA ambi has its rotation limited to safe/semi. Other more gucci ones may or may not be depending on what they're supposed to be compatible with.
shouldn't be, the shorter the gas system the more likely you are to have issues however, why you would notch a soft point is beyond me as it doesn't improve terminal performance while degraging external performance
>non-imported reasonably priced and greater than 60 gr
1. Thanks for the info.
2. I went with mid-length, so hopefully that's not an issue. And I'm not notching the 7.62x39 SPs intentionally. My AK feed ramp does it.
3. That's what I was afraid of.
I am a grad student, and even though I have an apartment off campus I still consider my parents' house my permanent address. Do I need to get my license changed and list my apartment as my address on a ccp application, or is it legal to list my parents house even though I don't live there most of the time? State is VA in case it is important.
>My AK feed ramp does it.
Interesting. I've never fired anything other than surplus or post-comm bloc FMJ out of my AKs.
Why 60gr out of curiosity? Some velocity limit?
It sounds like you want to.
Switched to Hornady SST for my AK-103-1 clone because it gave me 1.5" groups off of a shooting bag. I still keep the shitty Barnaul stuff for offhand shooting at 25m and 50m.
I tend to reload Hornady stuff because it's cheap and also it's what I'm most familiar with. They only carry the heavier 68gr and 75gr in OTM. They do carry SP (non-bonded only), JHP, and SST, but only in 60gr.
I'd love to reload a bonded SP like Nosler or even a Barnes TSX, but I'm not a fan of paying $.50 for a bullet alone.
I've only really seen shiny guns in the hands of big time crime lords and such in Mexico, so that could be part of it. Oh, there have been gold-plated guns found in the middle-east in the hands of warlords too.
No, I'd assume you'd keep them down, until your optic fails (or your pretend your optic fails to train for that situation) If you've already shot a few rounds, its going to fucking suck touching the front iron.
That is perfectly fine.

Was Ted Cruz actually in the wrong for doing this or is it just a cynical interpretation of gun safety rules being used as a political smear?
Seems to me that an unloaded break action shotgun with the breach open like that is perfectly safe and not a concern but I'm not a hunter. Would people (other than gun safety autists) actually get their panties in a twist over this if they encountered it in the field?
To me it seems more like at MOST a violation of etiquette rather than an example of irresponsible gun handling.
Shotgun with a rifled barrel so you can launch these fuckers out for nearly a dollar a pop.
>Seems to me that an unloaded break action shotgun with the breach open like that is perfectly safe and not a concern but I'm not a hunter. Would people (other than gun safety autists) actually get their panties in a twist over this if they encountered it in the field?
It IS safe, because A) there's no ammo and B) the hammer couldn't hit any loaded rounds unless Cruz somehow fell forward, snapped the loaded gun together WITHOUT losing the ammo, and hit something that caused the hammer to go forward.
>action open and over the shoulder
>can literally see daylight through both barrels on video and his hand is clearly below the trigger guard
If that's what you mean, no. it is bitch tier nit picking and completely unrealistic.
smear as fuck. broken action, no cartridges chambered, is regarded a safe carry condition and how clay shooters frequently stand on the line (where applicable) for comfort until it is their turn to fire, upon which they load, other bird sports may apply.
cracked and over the shoulder is not a violation of etiquette as you can observe the action's state easily from the third party perspective, this is not the case with semi/pump action types.
I am a safety autist and will remain so.
I do not go shooting with those who I view to take unnecessary risks.
This method of carrying a shotgun though is perfectly ok. Break guns are great for field work for that reason. They are made safe in such an easily visible and completely safe manner that means even the autists like me don't have problem.
There is literally no way an obviously break gun slung over the should or wrist is a safety hazard.
So yes much political BS from those who frankly have got no fucking idea. Nothing out of the ordinary then.
If you're 100% autistic, it violates "never treating a gun like it's unloaded" and "always point the muzzle in a safe direction".
But if you're a rational human being without an agenda, then this is totally safe. If somebody is walking around with a break action shotgun which is broken open, I would give zero fucks about where the barrel is pointing.
I shoot sporting clays, field and DTL fairly regularly and this is considered proper etiquette at the range. Most of the guys will be standing around waiting with their guns in that exact position.
Media is kicking up a fuss over nothing and only exposing how ignorant they are.
This is like people freaking out when somebody checks the bore of an AK by looking down the barrel from the front.
Totally safe, even though it violates a super strict reading of the 4 rules.

Am i being autistic or is waiting 11 days for some sight work a bit too damn long? Do gunsmiths usually take this long? I have a feeling im just being an impatient autist, but shed some light /k/
I mean im not bothering the dude, i only called once, and it was after 10days. I understand it isn't some fucking fresh out of highschool job hes doing. I just feel lost without one of my funs =/
I only have a shotgun so I do not understand anything about magazines at all.
I sometimes see pics of magazines that look like someone glued two together to make something longer to add capacity. If you have a big ass spring is this kind of thing doable with any mag? Like, can you turn a 10 round mag into a long ass 20 round mag this way?
Bought an SWFA about a year ago and recently noticed this tiny black spec near the crosshairs. I tried polishing the glass but it won't go away, anything I can do about this? It doesn't affect the scope or shooting so it's not that important to me but I'd like to know if I can get rid of this
I assume you mean pairing it with a front sight, unlike the other autists.
According to this thread, MBUS front and a carry handle work and have a close enough aperture height :
Any have any experience with this Romanian Mauser surplus & do I need something special to open it?
Benelli nova vs. Mossberg 590 for an all purpose shotgun?
Did you buy this to shoot it?
Post video of test fire
Fuck yeah I'm gonna shoot it.
Although it was sold in non-working condition, hopefully it's just a broken spring. Once I fix it I'll be sure to make a video.
Bug me in like two or three weeks, I can always be found using my trip in the AR General.
but there was one allready 1929 made by the czech. Germans could have started production in 33. Its even in their own caliber no need to change a thing.
Say I make an exact replica of a firearm that can chamber a round, cycle, has springs, action, etc... but doesn't have a firing pin (to prevent the obvious), and is made of a material that in no way could ever handle an actual discharge.
Is this LEGALLY a firearm? (speaking about US)
I want to say obviously no, but with the ATF I have learned to never assume anything based on logic.
Is there a decent red dot/holographic sight I could get for my poorfag PSA special that wont cost as much as the rifle itself? I've been looking at Sightmark red dots, ranging frmo $100-170, but they have mixed reviews.
I orderd this cheapskate form china for about 30 bucks incl. shipping
I'll test it on my K98k tomorrow morning
you make it sound like taking a long time is a sign of quality. Shitty 'smiths can be slow too.
If you are impatient and get tired of waiting, don't push the issue. Just get your gun back and go elsewhere. Being a pain in the ass is a sure way to end up with subpar work as the 'smith mumbles and bitches about you the entire time he's working on your stuff.
What kind of "sight work" anyway? An actual 'smith isn't needed for most sight work.
Does it have the channel for the firing pin and all other parts needed to make it work?
Regardless if you think it would blow up on the first firing, if all you'd need to to is drop in a firing pin to make it function, then yes, it would be a firearm per ATF.
unless you're talking about making it from ice cubes or mashed potatoes or papier-mâché, i guarantee you ATF would classify it as a firearm. Possibly even if it was made from the above materials.
Contact ATF technical dept (FATD) for an official ruling if you're actually planning on making one and legality is a concern.
The go-tos are a Bushnell TRS-25, or a Primary Arms dot (PA makes micro and fullsized Aimpoint clones).
They both have 3MOA dots rather than 2MOA from real Aimpoints, and they can be left turned on for months or beaten around. As range toy optics, they hold up just fine to recoil and normal handling and keep a zero.
Sightmark always screamed "cheap junk" to me.
I know there are people on here that have ordered custom patches from mutinyshop.com. How long did it take to get your order? I ordered one custom patch almost a month ago, and I can't get any response from customer service about it.
