Welcome to /k/, 4chan's weapons board. Our board centers around weapons, armor, and other myriad military technology. While guns are the primary topic, threads involving any other sort of weapons, from swords and knives to tanks and jet fighters, come up frequently as well. If you're new, we suggest reading the sticky at http://amagicalplace.wikia.com/wiki/Sticky to get acquainted with the board's subject matter.

Before posting a thread, please check our catalog to ensure that a thread about the same topic does not already exist.

what do you think of this as a m2 browing replacement

>>47463199
It doesnt need to... it can be because of the lower weight and impulse of replacements discussed ITT. And having 2 guns is a clear advantage over just 1 so why not?
>>
>>47463240
I'm not exactly seeing how it's a completely worthwhile advantage. A vehicle can only carry so much ammo, and that ammo being fed into a single gun means that it will be able to stay out in the field for a good amount of time. Giving two guns to a vehicle and both guns are going to be firing simultaneously at targets means that ammo is going to be burned faster and the vehicle will have to return to base to be restocked sooner. Not only that, but if the vehicle is using a remote weapon system, then it will be using twice the amount of expensive computers and equipment. If it gets taken out or needs to be abandoned then that's even more cost down the drain. And instead of simply upgrading the gun to something more worthwhile, you want to stick two of the same outdated .50 caliber machine guns on top? If it's going to be vehicle mounted, why don't you upgrade to something like a 25mm or a 30mm autocannon so that the vehicle will be able to engage more threats instead of burning twice as much ammo with an old cartridge? There's even a proposal for the JLTV for a RWS with a 25mm autocannon, but not a JLTV with two RWS .50 calibers. Why do you think that is?

If your vehicle isn't using a remote weapon system, then that's even more reason not to use multiple machinegun mounts. That's something that's been tried in WWI and WWII, it was seen as inefficient use of space and guns. Also, I'm not the second guy you quoted, I'm coming to the same logical conclusions he came to based on how fighting vehicles developed over time.

so the M2 upgrades according to wikipedia, based on the change-log of the US military, mostly the army.

>remove water jacket for heavy barrel
>heavy barrel improvement kit
>light barrel variant kit (aviation)
>quick barrel change kit for head space correction

in addition to this, and you would have to check military records, they replaced a lot of internal parts with improved version, they aren't noted because they take the same shape and form just a different material.

Luty doesn't work "fine" on the best of days, with factory-made ammo. It sort of works, when it feels like it. It's simply not a good design, too many corners cut to make it sort-of accessible (but not really) to a layman. You still have to learn a lot and teach yourself through trial and error. Takes months of work. Why bother? Just go full retard, spend a thousand more dollars to get tools and materials that are actually good enough (you don't need machine-tools). And then just make a normal first generation SMG which is not any worse and maybe even better than a Grease gun. It'll actually work and be safe and be reliable.
"DIY guns", except for simple zip guns and pipe shotguns, are a huge worthless meme. FGC-9 is the first one in history that is sort-of worth it.

Hey /k/ommandos
Someone recently offered me a job as an unarmed school security guard. It’s the same pay as my current job, but it hasn’t benefits included which mine doesn’t.
I hesitate to take him up on it because I’ve been working as an armed guard for a while and I don’t want to be unarmed.

My gf hears me say this and thinks I’m choosing having a gun over a better future. She also expressed that I wouldn’t be far from help (campus police) and that I would be less likely to need to defend myself because “you’re more likely to be shot if you have a gun”.

If you had to explain to someone why you feel that you need the gun, what would you say?
I generally tell people “because it’s my right”, but I feel the need to explain deeper.
Thoughts?

>>
> you’re more likely to be shot if you have a gun
You will also be more likely to shoot back. What the fuck is that argument? Oh I'm sure it's better to face the enemy unarmed because he's more likely to have mercy on you and not shoot lol

My Grandma was pleased, having lived on a massive farm for years, where it was common for the men to bag a deer every so often after the day's work was done. The most opposed is my dog, who absolutely loathes the prospect of being stuck inside when someone else is doing something outside and there are bushes to explore, rabbit holes to be dug up, and so on and so forth.

Well you also gotta pay insurance and for every checkup they do on your guns + the safe so ~4k to be able to have it ~100 to get the owning license and for every checkup they do on your safe and guns 2-3 times a year 100-400€ depending on your amount of weapons and if you aren’t there youll still pay and then you havent even gotten the weapon itself

To show off the flight characteristics of an airframe.
The true benefit of being able to perform the maneuver is that it shows the pilot can induce pitch and yaw changes in a post-stall situation where more conventional aircraft would be dead at the stick. It makes the plane more safe, especially when the pilot goes into a zoom climb and goes into a deep stall in thin air.
From the jewgles:
>A Deep Stall, sometimes referred to as a Super Stall, is a particularly dangerous form of stall that results in a substantial reduction or loss of elevator authority making normal stall recovery actions ineffective. In many cases, an aircraft in a Deep Stall might be unrecoverable.

I'd say the disadvantage to maneuvers is that it can disrupt normal turbine operation and cause the likelihood of engine surge.

Anon will have to settle for double dates to the range where we try and defuse Milly and Meryl's respective firearms autisms and get them to carry proper autoloader sidearms in addition to their signature pieces.

It would require more than just that they would have to end the filibuster too, but there are democrats who don't support ending the filibuster.
Also the Georgia republicans are projected to win their elections, and what the fuck are you doing to help them?
GOA is doing a mass phone call drive where you can donate your time to volunteer to call up people from Georgia and remind them to vote for the republicans in the run off to protect the 2nd Amendment.

>my rifle doesn't have X therefore problem Y doesn't exist

That's not how it works anon. Besides what "fitting the trigger correctly" even mean, filing it and polishing it until the angles are gone and you have something that somewhat look like a proper surplus trigger and where your action cycles without feeling like shit ? You should be a janitor if you like doing it for free.

And let's talk about the pull weight. What are you supposed to do if it's too light ? Bend your main spring with a pair of pliers ? Again, it implies a structural modification on the parts of your rifle, the same way they tell you TO GROUND DOWN THE FUCKING RIVET if the disconnector tail beats the shit out of it. I'm sure you can see the issue here : any manufacturer telling you to modify your 1K$ rifle or more somewhat extensively and permanently for à 50$ or so trigger is the clear sign that something isn't designed as it should.

In any case, rivet or not, i can guarantee you that your bolt carrier is taking far more of a beating with an angular ALG hammer than a smooth and curved one. Don't cope on that because this is a fact, not an opinion.
>>
>>47464893
>Don't cope on that because this is a fact, not an opinion.

It actually is opinion, and in fact speculation, since you don’t know shit about how my rifle is setup, but whatever guy, I’ll enjoy my ALG and you can keep being a paranoid autist.
>>
>>47464912
Correct. I don't know your rifle. I do know how AKs action work though. This is neither an opinion or a speculation. A bolt carrier going back "pushes" the hammer back, the bolt carrier tail is the first one to make contact. It has to "run" on the hammer a little bit. Friction = wear. Angles = friction.
