I have made slipjoint knives for a couple years out of my garage. I'll post some of my tooling and some of my work.

wait so you heat treat your own blades? thats pretty cool. what makes you choose that 01 steel over stainless? does the 01 steel rust like high carbone stuff?
>>
>>43208678
Stainless steel requires a subzero quench using dry ice or preferably liquid nitrogen, and you have to use foil wrap. It's just more involved and neither liquid nitrogen nor dry ice keep for very long and it is kins of hard and expensive to get.

Guys, I want to get an arm brace for my (((Jericho))). I'm on a limited budget ($200 maximum), so here are my options:

>3D print, and probably break, this: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3030223

>buy pic related (made for airshit, but it's aluminum) and modify it to fit my Jericho, then swap the stock for an arm brace

>save more and buy an actual roni made for the Jericho

I'm leaning toward option 2, can anyone give me some advice? How much bigger than a Glock is a Jericho?

>>43212362
Tell us how you think you're going to modify the airsoft toy to work with your 9mm pistol anon. Actually no, do it. Livestream the first range trip, make sure your face, neck, and hands are in focus. You're a really smart person.

It's just the stock. It wraps around the gun.

Alright /k/, I need you input on this, if it's even possible.

So I'm a recently enlisted Milfag, I've got a 5 year contract, and I intend to save just about every damn penny I make while I'm in. When I get out, assuming the boogaloo hasn't started, I'm gonna buy a house and get a normal job out in Texas by the rest of my family. But if I save as much as I want to (And I will, because I'm a massive fucking Jew), I should also have enough money to buy some land out in Texas, and then a couple grand leftover.

Now my question is, how would one go about building their own shoot house? It's my dream to just have a place where I can go train, or take some of my buddies and have fun blasting shit for awhile. So far I've worked out that I'll need to pay for some dirt, and have a massive U shaped pile of dirt for a backstop. But what would the walls be made out of inside the house? I was thinking rubber tires filled with dirt, but that'll take way too fucking long.

I want the killhouse to roughly simulate an actual house, with one large living room in the middle, two hallways, then several rooms equal in size. Money is no object because this is an absolute dream project for me, but I don't want to finish it when I'm too old to properly enjoy it anymore.

Also, what would the legality of this be?

I saw an original No1 Mk 5 Jungle Carbine at a local gunshop in really good condition for $500. Good buy?

>>43211324
Yes, as long as you're sure it's an original and it's in acceptable condition. Make sure all lightening cuts are present, and the reciever is marked correctly. If it checks out, and you actually know what you're getting into with a surp rifle, buy it.
>>
>>43211324
If it is real, go for it, they're $700 and up

lots of those are faked but check it out and if it turns out to be real grab it up. These rifles are terrible for holding zero if you live in a humid environment though due to stock swelling, be warned!

basically look for obvious things like if it is the wrong year or wrong maker (long branch for example) it is a "sporterized" and not the real deal.

>>
>>43212147
Nope, I was there. Otherwise I wouldn't have made the thread. /k/iddies earnestly thought their garbage rod was a viable weapon up against the AR-15 and AKs. /k/iddies thought all you had to do was bolt a scope onto it (even better if you could find the originals), bend the bolt, and you earnestly had a good sniper rifle. /k/iddies highlighted how much of a tactical advantage the bayonet was. If they were joking around, then they sure as hell don't know how to type out sarcasm or figure out how to make a funny joke out of praising a pile of shit. Now granted, /k/ids were probably a lot younger and had no guns back then - so they latched on to the most popular meme there was back then.

welcome to /k/ now get the fuck out.

moist nugget was never about it being the best or a good rifle, it was a rifle. It was cheap and 54r hits hard. The riced up mosins are not /k/, they're the exact fucking opposite. Preppers and bubbas with aftermarket stocks and hatchetjob mods for a $90 rifle have been derided since the beginning.

No, you weren't People were legit run off from this board for going bubba on Mosins. There was a lot of flak for Mosin owners too. Having a Mosin then was like having a hi-point now. You got called a poorfag and laughed at in any thread other than slavshit threads. Even the fellow combloc fans poked fun at the Mosin owners. It was all in good fun most of the time but everyone knew that the guns were a good deal for the 70-150 dollar price tag.

Light Infantry is... they carry all their shit because they don't have vehicles to do it for them. So they're rucking with the mortar, AT system, heavy machine gun, light machine gun, etc...

By any reasonable definition the US fields almost exclusively heavy infantry.

Do not confuse motorised and mechanized with heavy/light. They have nothing to do with each other.

Historically about 40lbs of armor is the practical limit for battlefield use. Guess how much our flacks weigh?

We also fill the roll of heavy infantry, closing in and destroying at close range as opposed to harrying or chasing enemies.

Obviously with modern warfare and wars every role of infantry has been the responsibility of the GI to include classically "light" infantry.

I think it's fairly self evident, but if needed I can defend further. Im kinda anticipating people haven't thought of it this way.

Seriously this. 30mm is good enough against infantry and light armor. 50mm would probably be overkill against that kind of target and still not enough against MBT's, at the cost of reduced ammo capacity.

/k/ is a Fascist board.

Convince me not to drop everything and enlist, /k/. I'm in my early 20s with a college degree, just got a meme coding job with insane benefits and a good salary. A great relationship with a future doctor, a nice apartment, plenty of fun money, the whole shebang. But I'm so fucking bored. I hate sitting behind a desk 8 hours per day writing code for some useless tech meme bullshit. I miss my summers in college of doing nothing but working out, scuba diving, hiking, shooting. I was planning on enlisting and becoming an operator after college but now I have to work to pay for everything while my gf does med school. I know enlisted life is trash tier and it would be the end of my relationship and upper class life but I feel like I'm wasting my fucking life behind this goddamn desk. I had a hard upbringing and moved out when I was young. I feel like the comfy life is making me soft. Tell me I'm retarded and I should stay put.

Listen dumbass, that shit ain't happening until you retire. Congrats, you've managed to achieve the bare minimum of having a stable job and life. Pick something to do with your free time and do it. I get that nobody ever teaches you that there's more to life than work, but you need to figure out what you enjoy.

BTW, if you're not working from home at least 3 days out of 5 in a coding job and essentially making your own hours, your job is shit, do better
>>
>>43209997
Bruh you won’t find fulfillment in the military. I was halfway through college with everything paid for and decided that I would regret it if I didn’t try an enlistment. I promise you, there is no way to adequately prepare for how gay and retarded everything is in the army. Like for example, in airborne school you do a pt test the first day, and they score you on the very bare minimum. Easy enough, except the instructors want their job to be easier too so they when you get to your last push-up they just keep repeating the last number until the clock runs out so they can fail you and they have less people to deal with. I saw fit motivated guys get fucked over and fat females pass literally just by the whim of the guy counting. And all the schools and courses are like that, anybody can get fucked randomly and there’s no way to fight it. Just stay where you’re at, work out and shoot. I was literally in better shape before I enlisted by a wide margin.
