I hate to be mean, but you're an idiot if you're gonna wear AR500 for ballistic protection. The bullets will shread your weewee and probably your nech too. .308 hits hard and the splatter will shred you.

Chest Rig comparable to the Haley D3CRX Heavy? I want one but I havent seen it in stock for months.
>>47357982I fucking love Cold War battle rifles bros. There's something weirdly romantic about the (fairly impractical) doctrine of individual soldiers making hits with irons sights at 400-500. A thin line of good men using their FALs, Stgw-57s, and M14s to defend Western Europe from the godless communist horde.
>>47358029I run a mayflower gen VI pusher. I can take a pic real quick but it'll be low res. its pretty top tier and comes with inserts so I can use my AK mags when i want to and swap out inserts for 7.62x51 mags. I don't own any 5.56 rifles but it comes with a 5.56 insert too.
>>47358079Looks pretty comfy. Appreciate ya. I'll check it out.
>>47358070same here, I was playing some black ops 1 zombies with a friend the other night cause nostalgia and it made me realize that playing black ops 1 though growing up is what made me have such a huge fetish for cold war and Vietnam era guns and history. I don't want any ar15s but my exception is an m16 a1. my grail gun is in the game in 5.56 (galil), my other favorite guns like the m14, m16a1, cz75, 1911, g3 (kinda) akm and FAL.
should i cop a c308 as my first battle rifle? atlantic has em for 900 with some mags, loader n lube
>>47358096it is pretty comfy, so comfy in fact that I wear it around the house. Sadly I couldn't get it in ranger green so I'm stuck with grey until I get around to dying it. overall its pretty good, one of the best I've ever used, I've heard it can be tight for ptr mags but I don't know about that.
>>47358160no, gett a ptr centuries are know for having dubious at best quality control.
>>47358188Should fit M1a mags alright tho yeah?

Hi BRG, had a few questions regarding my Century R1A1. I'm trying to make it correct for a Commonwealth L1A1. obviously, the century brake from way back in the day is an eyesore, I never got around to replacing it. my question is, where is this thing welded on, and how can I be sure it is even threaded or threaded properly to accept an L1a1 flash hider? Should I just Dremel it off? I've tried cranking it vice vice and pliers, among other things. Thanks guys. pic related is the brake
I had to wade through the boomers, the punisher skull people and the weirdos, but I scored a decent G3 bayonet at the gun show today, I'm pretty happy with that.
No /prg/ so you all get my hunting raifu instead of PTR. Regardless, now you all have made me want a galil. What are my options?
Nofuns here. Saved up $ 2,500.00 for a rifle. Where can I get a Galil? Should I even be looking at a Galil to start?
>>47362712best galil or ACE?
>>47362763Anon in the OP says "not ace" so not ace.
>>47362246>back in the dayProbably pinned and welded, google removing that and luck.
>>47362545Get out your fat wallet.
>>47362787for 2500 you might be able to afford getting one pieced together with a 5.56 parts kit and some other parts. im doing that right now but if youre a noguns just buy a PTR first so you actually have a battle rifle before you begin a months long process to build a parts kit 308 galil.
>>47362712>Should I even be looking at a Galil to start?Maybe? Go big, do it right. You invest in an IMI Galil and your investment will appriciate. But you really want a shooter, right? There are many AR10 resources that get you in with accurate rifles for about a grand. That leaves ~$800+ for glass and accessories, which you will want.
>>47362545Patience >>47362351Congrats anon. It'll treat you well. After 200 rounds.
>>47362545Options are very limited for .308 Galil's, but if you want an already completed rifle, you have 3 options:- Ohio Rapid Fire kit build- Tortort Kit build- CNC warrior Kit Build- Pre-Ban IMI Galil (Imported by Magnum Research or Action Arms)The kit builds don't come up for sale often, but you're looking at $2500 minimum for one of those pre-built.ORF no longer makes receivers, but Tortort and CNC warrior does still sell .308 receivers,however the Tortort does come with a .308 bolt, and the CNC warrior does not,so you can get one built with a surplus 5.56 Galil kit and a .308 barrel from AWO as long as you have the .308 receiver and bolt.Pre-Ban IMI Galil's will be the top-tier choice on account of them being factory made IMI guns.But at the moment, prices on those are around $4000-$5000.The model 329 and 329S are the .308 AR models that come with just a black polymer handguard.The model 332 and 323 are the .308 ARM models that come with the wooden handguard, carry handle, and bipod and tend to sell for higher than the 329/329S.
>>47362885yeah I will probably Dremel it. I bought it for 500 dollars in 2007.
>>47363206Needs a little keychain yarmulke
>>47363206It might take a couple months but I can save up another $ 2,500.00.
Has anyone ever fired traces from their rifles? A friend of mine gave me some m62 tracer rounds and I'm not sure if I should even fire it from my M1A, or when I can.
>>47364046I bought a whole can of .30-06 years ago, main thing here is fire hazard. Haven't lit off one.
>>47359021it should be $1500-1700, not the jew inflation its at
>>47364046Shot a bunch in my FAL
>>47359728Man I hope you're right. Thanks for the intel.
>>47360763Good rifle, and the along with an M1 Garand is the best entrylevel battle rifle.
>>47364046M1a will handle that round just fine.
>>47365551This. The Garand is a great intro into BR as it influenced many BR.
>>47365672The best entry level is the SCAR-Heverything else is a poorfag cope
Decided I'm going to send just the barrel to Mark to get the gas block installed. I'm positive I can do the assembly myself and I want to trust his expertise on the proper gas port size and not DSA.
>>47365918you are pathetic
>>47365918Sounds good man, I've built a couple of FALs, and yeah everything is super easy, screwing in the barrel is the hardest part if you don't have the tools, and I imagine putting in the gas block (mine was already on) would also require a bit more work. Everything else is super basic though. >>47365928Wow, rude.
>>47365743But the SCAR is really, really BORING.
So do the airsoft wide handguards actually fit onto a ptr 91?
>>47365928He's made some good points about DSA having geometry errors in their magazine wells and gas port sizes, something that they could've rectified a long time ago. I'll pay more for a precision installation the first go around rather than having a fucked-up gas port that requires a new barrel.>>47365958Definitely concerned about proper barrel timing. Offhand, is it possible to make your own clocking rods so I don't have to buy them? Should just be a matter of cutting the correct threads on some reasonably straight bar stock no?
>>47365614All that money and a fuckin Magpul bipod. I laugh at you.
>>47366160>possible to make your own clocking rods so I don't have to buy them?Yeah you could probably make due with dowel rods, as haphazard as it would seem, I didn't use clocking rods, I eyeballed it with the rear sight. Probably not a good idea so I cannot recommend it, but it worked for me. If you want it done right, I'd recommend going to a professional like ARS (I DIY'd it) but the peace of mind would be well worth it IMHO.
>>47366513>Magpul bipod.Youve got to concede that the bipod color scheme matches the factory color mismatch rather nicely. But yeah, I am not a fan of the Fagpul bipod or any cheap bipod. Why add the weight of a shitty bipod when taking a knee or seated postion is far superior or more expedient to deploy than a crappy bipod? Learn your shooting positions, guys! And put a Ching sling on that thing! Ching slings are far nicer to use than shitty bipods.
What are the most important spare parts to have on hand for a PTR?
>>47366892seconding this but for FAL
>>47366892#1 Mags. I consider ammo as a consumable.
god my CETME parts kit got delayed and my other package with some medical stuff got delayed. both were supposed to arrive today, shoot me.
>>47366892Id buy a CETME C parts kit, they're cheap as fuck on apex right now and will have every single part that you need and a few you don't. sell off the furniture to that one PTR guy who wanted wood furniture. Sell the triple tree since PTRs are based on g3s and sell some of the other random stuff thatll never break, or keep it just incase.
>>47366892Extractor springs will last as long as the barrel. Nothing else really wears down much. Get another buffer spring and bolt spring if you want but you'll probably never need them. Other than that, +2 rollers will take you to 30k rounds easy. Eventually the receiver can start to wear out... I've never seen a ptr with a bulged receiver so don't know when that starts to happen. But vegas full auto rental mp5s last 150k rounds without maintenance with the MAD bolt that has upgraded extractor designs.
>>47363206Thanks for the breakdown, anon. Why are BRs so hard to acquire? Such is life.
>>47366990>both were supposed to arrive today, shoot me.Patients is a virtue, grasshopper. I've got 3 AR10 rcvr sets awaiting my travel and the Holiday will likely add another week or more. Bright side, I found a supplier for.16-20" 338 Fed light weight, .260Rem 20-22" and 24-26" 6.5CM bull bbls with matching bolts for sub moa guarantee. I just need to decide on lengths and profiles, but in those ranges.
>>47367033>Why are BRs so hard to acquire?Some are harder than others, fren. That's all. Others are worth the effort.
>>47367014Thanks anon, that's a really solid deal
>>47367163yeah mine was supposed to come today but the jews at ups delayed it cause theyre retarded.
>>47359719i played bo2
>>47366683The number painted on your stock is REALLY close to the one painted on mine.What receiver did you use?Where 2 cop some non bipod cut handguards?looks really hot

>>47367265Does this mean you're not too frail to joint the /brg/ fitness crew? Drop and show me 20 proper. I'd rater see fewer in good form, over more sloppy pushups.

>>47364358Why do you say that, its a lot better quality than a FAL
Beasts of No Nation was kino
>>47357630c-c-c-can I hang out with you guys?
>>47368538I mean, I guess.
>>47368561>>47368568>>47368647still need a bcg and trigger, but I ordered everything else today.
>>47368656I'm >>47367086 in much the same boat, but trailing you. Building anything special?
>>47368680just building a brn 10, but with a light trigger. I'm pretty excited, it's my first BR. I got the lower last month and didn't expect to get more parts for a few months, then today a bunch of money came and barrels and uppers were on sale. I'm 300$ under budget so far. Feels good, man.
>>47368656in in the exact opposite boat, I have all my parts but the receiver.
>>47368656Wat BCG? Mine is jamming and idk if it's the BCG or the upper.
>>47368889I was looking at this onehttps://www.brownells.com/rifle-parts/bolt-parts/bolt-carrier-groups/308ar-bolt-carrier-groups-prod105380.aspx?avs%7cMake_3=AR%2520xzzx308think there are different patterns for different manufacturers, isn't there? so you bcg might not be compatible with the upper. what kind of jams?
>>47368989Well it's a DPMS Toolcraft BCG so should work. When the BCG reaches all the way back the bolt doesn't come forward and I think it might be hitting the notch in the upper where the charging handle nubs slot in.If I reach in and grab the bolt and pull it the BCG unlocks and moves.
>>47357807I wonder who could be behind this post...
Should I use wood glue or super glue? I'm leaning towards superglue because I think wood glue will fuck up the finish and show. Plus I think neither will work very good.
>>47369977Use clear drying 2 part epoxy. Get it deep into the crack with a toothpick, clamp it, then clean the squeeze-out.
>>47369977Sorry need to add to>>47369988I use West Systems. I make knives and have a lot on hand for gluing handle scales. I cracked my M1A's stock and fixed it this way, it's almost impossible to see even if you know its there.
>>47369977>>47369988>>47370004West Systems G-Flex, that is. I'm done being a faggot triple posting now.
>>47370017You don't just wake up one morning and decide your not a faggot
>>47370028Is it any different from the day you woke up and decided you wanted to start sucking dick?
>>47370043That was one time in the navy. One. Time.
>>47370058Sorry man, you know the old saying. You fuck one goat, and you're a goat fucker.
>>47369988>>47370004>>47370017Thanks dude. I'll order it. Another $25 to spend in addition to the $150 just because I wanted a wood handguard. With my luck some Amish guy will start selling G3 repro furniture next week for $50.
>>47370110Np buddy. For the record this is how the M1a turned out. If you're comfortable you can try to put some pressure on the split in order to open it a bit to get more epoxy in. Idk that I'd recommend that, though.
>>47370225I might try sticking an oversized dowel through that hole . The top crack I definitely stretch open but the lower one maybe not.
Is the DSA Cold Warrior a turd? I want a battle rifle but I'm a fag and don't really like any BRs except FALs. PTR's are ok I guess.
>>47370273I'd agree to that line of reasoning. Good luck bröther.
>tfw stuck listening to old blues wishing i could do something with rifles instead of being stuck at home
>>47370325What's stopping you? Go magdump in the air if you're a real nigger
>>47366892My guess for a PTR in order of operations is this:Recoil Spring (easy replace, most common fail part afaik). Buy 2 for the hell of it. Cheap.Additional Rollers, various sizes.Spare Cocking Handle, unless you do the Norweigan thing and just make it steel.Springs of all sorts, except maybe trigger spring because it's fucking chonky and likely won't be an issueLastly, firing pin, or alternatively just have a spare BCG in ready condition to toss in.Likelihood is you won't get any further than the recoil spring. Any other parts "failing" likely means the gun is fucking itself to death; a broken buffer likely means warped receiver or stockplate. Shitty barrels are gunsmith territory for replacing. etc.
>>47370315Nothing wrong w it
>>47366160dsa cant drill proper gas port for izzy barrel? how much raging autism charging to do it?

>>47370708I just finished my nightly workout, I was a bit late tonight since I was celebrating a friends birthday. Rate my workout.>50 pushups, good form, repeating any with bad form. Every break I take I have to add that number pushups, so my first break I add one pushup, my second I add two and so on.> 50 situps, same idea as the pushups rules.> 50 squats, with my rifle in my arms fully extended out. So the rifle is as far from my body as possible for more upper body plus the same rules as pushups and situps.>Do this in the morning when I wake up, and at night before bed in full gear both times.The feeling of my arms wanting to give out just by taking off my chest rig is amazing. That feeling of satisfaction is borderline addicting. Although occasionally ill have to take a day off so I can recover and not just fuck my body up.
>>47370834awe thanks anon I'm so glad you enjoyed them
>>47370846sidenote, the elastic loops on the shoulders of my chest rig for hydration hoses/comms cables are perfect for looping my thumbs in so I dont break form during situps.
>>47370848>pointedly and suspiciously didn't answer the question.I see you buttplug-toe man.
>>47370846not a bad regime and with a lot of discipline, but I'd be careful to not overdo the rigidness of the exercise rules or frequency. nevertheless it's a solid system for body weight anaerobics 7-7.5/10. have you also tried some cardio training?
>>47370859they're reserved for marriage
>>47370864I do cardio when possible, i get -20 winters, but in the summer I like to run the trails through the woods on the weekend with my dog or just alone. I also skate fairly often so I get in decent cardio from that.
>>47370883>I like to run the trails through the woodsthis is honestly the best way to exercise without equipment. the woods just have so much to offer
>>47370890it definitely does, it keeps you sharp as well since you have to pay attention to not trip over roots or fall into the river youre running two feet away from. Not to mention this time of year I can get away with putting my chest rig on under a thin hoodie and being able to get more comfortable doing cardio in gear.

I'm gonna get a 16' DSArms SA58 (pic related) what optic should I get /k/ ? I plan on getting an LPVO but i'm not sure wich one
>>47369705woah, that's weird. might be a bad buffer or buffer spring. I don't think there's anything on the bcg that's supposed to be able to catch on those little slots. if you're spring compresses too much I suppose the bolt carrier key could catch there. I'm sure it's that the case though you'd be able to see some where on the sides of the key. could also be that the buffer plunger is sticking out a little too far up, but I'm not sure. you could try asking Instructor chad in youtube.
>>47368848gotta get what you can when you can. I got the lower purely cause it was on sale last month and figured it would take a year for me to put it together, was just luck that finances and a sale lined up just now.
>>47376277Texass or Kansas?
>>47374910we're all frens here.
>>47376535It only happens if you slam the action all the way open (manually or shooting) but doesn't if you just rack it a few times by hand. That made me think the buffer spring may have been involved but it says jammed even if you take the buffer tube off. That's why I thought the key was the part jamming on the upper. I took it out cleaned it and spin it 180* but still happens.
>>47375722mine is still a parts kit lmao, i just have like 40 images of galils saved to my pc ive heard theyre about on par with FALs.
>>47376677Texas.>Fifth layerNot too sure what else i can do here. Think i may have used too much brown
>>47376506PA Platinum 1-8x
>>47376506first of all, get a 18 inch. second of all ELCAN spectr
>>47376753Neat! I like it
>>47376789Thanks fren. Going to clear coat and then let slap it on my rifle tomorrow
>>47376742how hard do you have to push/pull for it to unjam? have you started with just the upper and hand moving the action and adding more parts to see when it jams? does anyone else around you have an ar10 whose bolt you could try instead? maybe your lgs will let you try a different ar10 bolt to manually check?
>>47376753I like it, the brown reminds me of Belgian Jigsaw.
>>47376776Not him but why 18"?I want to get a FAL as my first .308 rifle but I'm stuck between a 21" fixed stock and a 16 or 18" para.
>>47376825I have to slam the side of the reciever hard to unjam it when the rifle is complete. It's totally solid in pic above, will not move forward or aft. First I was taking the buffer tube off then seperating the recievers to pull the BCG out the back. Later I figured out I could reach in and pull the bolt itself forward to unjam it, which is what is causing the jam as far as I can tell. I tried taking every part off I could think of in testing. I asked around for another bolt but haven't heard back yet.
>>4737711818 is the best compromise>>47376814I skip the clear coat and just let it get worn in naturally
>>47377173you might need to contact brownells, I guess it could be the receiver. if you get a hold of a second BCG and it's doing the same thing, that'll pretty much confirm it. is the upper still under warranty?
>>47377237Yeah and I've contacted them about it not working already so shouldn't be a problem
>>47377118>why 18"?Picrel. And:>>47377201
>>47377118>>47377927Just go 21" with long flash hider and fixed bayonet. Intimidate the enemy.
>>47357630Is a SCAR 20 a battle rifle, nearly picked one up today at the fun show, seller was being a major douchebag so I wasnt going to leave money with him
>>47379118Yes but it's good you didn't buy one. The SCAR 20 is for retards
Do I get boolied?
>>47379129>SCAR 20 is for retardsPls explain how the 20 is any more retarded than any other SCAR? The 20S is the only SCAR I would consider and I'm not even considering it.
>>47379278Not by me, fren. Welcome!
>>47379426please man, Scar heavy is cool and the 20 is cool too.just a designated marksman rifle so 20 is longer barrel/rail for opticsdo you like shooting long distance or shouldering and running and gunning?looks heavy but light as hell to hold
>>47358685>doing body weight exercisecringe. calisthenics is gay as fuck. the only body weight exercise worth doing is pullups and variations of it. get a gym membership and do heavy back squats and deadlifts so you have the strength to carry all your shit into battle. do OHP, front raises, and side raises to build the strength to handle your rifle. do pullups to control your rifle. running because duh. basically everything else is just for aesthetics.
>>47379129I want one to go with my 17 tho
>>47380065>get a gym membership>paying for a membership to a gym you can't use during quarenteen Now that's as gay as a Frisco bath house.
>>47379963>>47380282Spoon feed a bro on SCAR models and I might stop ragging on SCARS (doubtful, overpiced plastic). You know the mfg cost per unit is well below $500, EASY, right?
>>47380342>he lives in a state thats cucked enough to still close gymskek. if thats your problem then get a home gym faggot. invest in your body.
>>47380376>he cares about the price
>>47380424>invest in your body.Olympic free weights, fren.
>>47380427Of course, I have to save for my H.C.A.R. why would I want an ugly SCAR?
>>47380473Why not buy both?
>>47380376> You know the mfg cost per unit is well below $500, EASYLets not take into account overhead of r&d, shipping costs, import tariffs, and being a company that needs to make a profit to keep researching new designs. But seriously, it shoots a lot better than other batlle rifles, and by better I mean a lot better
so you can have the original torch cut receiver be rewelded? is that better than getting a new one from tortort?
>>47380517>>47380376my baby will shoot 1moa all day with 175 or 168 gmm. Superior barrel system to tune for any suppressor. Light weight + high accuracy + unbeatable reliability (good luck with a budget AR10)
>>47379453What's the story behind your L1A1? I just got a British kit with matching front end and bolt group with an Enfield lower. Original Maranyl pebble furniture. I'm pretty excited to build her, I just need to get a receiver and wood furniture.
>>47379278Welcome fren>>47380065Turkish getup is OK with bodyweight if you do it at a pace where you can do it for 45 minutes straight.

>>47379453Yea buddy. >>47379453Much obliged
Hi frens. It seems like anything not designed in the 20th century is haram except for shitty short stroke garands. I think your guns are cool and this is my kike cannon. Would you like to know more?
>>47381652this kike cannon is better, but were all brothers under the neato nato. Id shoot side by side with you. Maybe the side opposite of the ejection port though.
>>47381500You should love people and own things, not the other way around. If you are afraid to let things go, you don't own them, they own you.
>>47381727Hah, it's not too bad, and what is a range day without getting hit by some hot brass every now and then?
>>47381727is that yours? always the same picture. post the other side.
DSA or PTR for first rifle?
>>47381907almost any time I go to a public range I come back with burns and empty shells in my ammo can.>>47381927it isn't mine and I've never claimed it to be, I'm just a galil fetishist. I'm not sure if you lurk here enough but I'm the guy whose building a 308 galil from a 5.56 parts kit. I simply have a fuck ton of pictures of 308 galils on my computer so I don't make posts without a nice picture.>pic rel is my only galil
>>47381970iwi galil ace or imi galil
>>47381987im am the other guy that you successful shilled the galil on. when the damn barrel supposed to come in? 5.56
>>47380522Thats the 50 round magazine right?
>>47382019If you're asking about my barrel, I already have it, as well as my Yugo m76 bolts, I think I remember you from a few threads back. feel free to shoot me an email with a burner if you have any questions I might be able to answer. If you're talking about your barrel, I think Apex has barrels. if you haven't bought your kit yet you can add a barrel to the initial order.
>>47380065I agree but these zoomers should just invest in a home gym, instead of 9 new rifles a year. body weight calisthenics will take forever to put on strength or endurance. Especially considering the average person here has some of the worst nutrition possible(Oreos and McDonald's). Lol there was a post earlier where someone was saying they needed a "rest day" from body weight exercises.
>>47381988I dunno where to get a complete one.
>>47381970PTR, My DSA had a chambering issue. Many such anecdotal cases against DSA. FAL mags are like 10 times the price as G3 mags, but most don't care about it. I actually want a PTR, local shop has one for $1200 and I really don't want to pay that.
whats the best twist rate for an 18 inch barrel?
>>47381970PTR. quality cheap mags and the rifle is a lot of fun with a durable make and design. prices are high like all things but every once in a while atlantic will have them in stock for a short time for the most reasonable prices I've seen (~$1000 for the GI model no rail, normally ~$900). I love mine
>>47382111Hey man I only bought one gun this year
>>47381970Flip a coin
>>47357630Is there a single place on the entire internet that has a FAL extractor tool in stock?I cant headspace my build until I get the damn thing off.
>>47383259Make a wtb on fal files
>>47370858Which rig is this? Guessing mayflower but am unaware to which model
>>47372034>dingThat only makes it better, though.FALs/SLRs look weird and unnatural with a clean finish and smooth stock.It's a battle rifle, let it be so.
>>47379278I always respect the M1.
>>47382582I'm on 1, too (not counting handguns and rcvrs)!
>>47383456@$65/ea, I was being facetious. But yeah.
>>47382111>>47380065You understand that the guide is a bare minimum, right? You're allowed to go above and beyond (the way you're supposed to), it's a starting point for people who otherwise would do no exercises at all
>>47383445mayflower gen VI pusher
>>47384197nope, I didn't understand that when 9 posters are discussing doing 40 pushups before bed, as if that is some life changing experience. I want zoomer genocide, they behave as though they own the internet and they are the first generation to ever do anything because they haven't seen it on Instagram yet, "wow, we are legit warriors doing some pushups with our raifus guise, I bet no one has heard of this"
I just like it bros.
>>47384483As long as critisizing people at different levels than you're at makes you feel superior to them and special about yourself then go for it! And you don't have to stop there, you can dog on people with less ammo than you have, people with less guns than you have, people with less knowledge than you have, heck you can shit on everyone for one reason or another! But in the end people trying to improve themselves and their condition are the real winners over hypercritical, egotistical malcontents. >t. I did my pushups this morning and I will go all day without shitting on anyone
>>47381970I love my G3 clone, but I wouldn’t steer someone away from a FAL either. If it wasn’t for current times, I would have probably bought one too.
>>47379278We will only bully outside of brg, this is a sanctuary for all battle rifles.
>>47384489I love the spring loaded dust cover and wish more rifles had it, it's neato as fuck

Thinking about getting the barrel on my scar 17 pined and welded at 16" instead of getting it SBRd and a 13" barrel. Thoughts?

>>47385142Why? SBR 308 is dumb
So I'm seconds away from buying a PTR 91 102 version with the welded pic' rail and M-lok handguard. Should I just do it or wait for something else? FAL have ballooned in price greatly and the only FAL I like are $1800+ and there's no fucking way I'm buying a $1000 beat to shit parts kit. Any suggestions for a quality rifle under $1400 that isn't an AR?
>>47387301I prefer the 101 There's always the BRN10 B^)
>>473873011200 can get an almost mint stg kit with todays prices
>>47387301Either do it or buy a Garand from CMP.
>>47387379I thought about it but I want this to be my SHTF rifle option. I already have a decent AR but I prefer 762x51 to get past trees, cars, houses etc. Originally I wanted an FAL really badly but I put it off for years and now it's too much for what you get. Plus DSA has made the cheapest FAL option out of chinese pig metal that isn't to original specs. >>47387379>get an almost mint stg kitIt's too basic. I have bad eye sight so I need a nice optic and some basic but still modern accessories.
>>47359719I played Dark Souls 1 in college and I'm nostalgic for it
>>47387301Do it, you can always change out the furniture and desperately wait for a wide handguard to show up.
Ordered my PTR 2 weeks ago today. Shipped last tuesday. No word since. No tracking info. I'm the guy who bought one from work for 900 but they would only let me send it to an FFL. Did Daquanvianjavias Jones and company steal it in transit or am I just being impatient?
>>47387470I played Fallout NV when I was 30 and feel the same.
>>47387511Only buy from trusted sources. Only send to trusted sources.
>>47387429According to Uncle Paul, trees are shit cover if you know your target is behind it or vice versa. Your AR will serve you fine in this regard. The Battle Rifle is for when he's hiding behind a tree 500 yards away
>>47387351>I prefer the 101Sold out in the places I trust, plus I like the Mlok option. Green is very sexy though, makes it stand out more than average and dull black.
>>47387539>The Battle Rifle is for when he's hiding behind a tree 500 yards awayDistance and cover is your friend. Plus if it's effective at range, it's effective upclose. The reverse doesn't hold true for 5.56 or the military wouldn't be trying to replace it. Plus, from what I have seen the 762x51 holds better in times of need. Less people rush to buy it, so I'd rather cover my bases then just buy more of the same.
>>47387470>>47387519I played NEC TurboGrafix 16 Blazing Lazers and missed out on too much life. Video games are a time suck. Better to read a book, if you read the right books.
Yeah, okay never mind. The PTR I wanted is sold out too. Only the NJ compliant PTRs are left, with fake welded flash hiders and fucked up mag wells. Hello Darkness My Old Friend.
>>47387621Waited too long seeking external validation. Lesson learned or do we have to do this again?
>>47387621Atlantic has a 109 in stock
>>47387617I do both.>not all of my books>>47387637Also this.
>>47387638>Atlantic has a 109 in stockI've been thinking about it for 15mins but I shouldn't. I'm going to pussy out. I have had bad experiences spending a chunk more trying to upgrade guns, instead of just saving the extra bit and buying the full option version. I should just play it cool and wait.
>>47384688You guys are alot cooler than arg and akg. Those guys are fags.
Probably a long shot, but anyone got any leads on any wide G3 handguards? Or how often POF ones come back in stock?
>>47387750An admirable book shelf!
>>47387621> with fake welded flash hiders and fucked up mag wellsI don't really give a shit about the muzzle device but this is the first I've head of mag well issues. Mine's a NJ model (PTR 300) and seems to work just fine with both steel and aluminum mags
>>47388073I'll venture a guess at northern Arizona?
>>47388239>wide g3 handguardThe thing that every single thread has several people asking about, all given the exact same answer every day? Trust me, the day they come back in stock, it'll be in the OP. As of right now, it's airsoft or nothing. Me and other airsoft anon has confirmed that they will work (with some slight hand-fitting), but neither me nor him have had time or ammo to actually do some mag dumps and see if it melts, although the head shield does look legit. Regardless, this is your best chance for 1/8th the price (assuming you can find a real one anywhere) until atleast next year.
>>47388284Thanks fren. Have another 50 or so books to buy to backfill in ones I've already read.
>just sent money order out for gun>forgot to wrap the order in another sheet of paper when I put it in the envelope so it's not as visible in lightTyrese is gonna steal it, isn't he?
>>47388495>money orderWhy? Was a debit or credit card too much work? I'm paranoid as much as the next gun owner but I don't mess around and take risks with big money.
The IMBEL parts kit on an IMBEL receiver build I picked up for 1k a few weeks ago. Just threw some IMBEL furniture on it (came with DSA furniture)
>>47387638>Atlantic has a 109 in stockYeah, after 2hours of research, I made the right call by waiting. If I got the 109, I'd need to buy an LPVO, the mlok handguard and the magpul G3 stock. I can wait until the summer, then if the PTR 102 comes back, I'd just need the LPVO.
>>47381970both if you can front the cash
galil bro, do we need the cl and br?
Hey I’m a Canafag here wondering if SVT-40s are good battle rifles, you can get them here in pretty good condition for about 1000$ CAN
>>47387301ptr mags are super cheap to
>>47388911>pretty good condition for about 1000$ CANYou Canadians get cool shit, sucks about your gun laws now. An SVT is at least 2 grand in the US.
>>47388495Sometimes you just have to release yourself and trust in the Lord.>>47388616Some people (like me) lead a debt free life without credit cards, money orders and cashiers checks are sop and I find this no trouble at all. Other times vendors require po mo, cash or cashier's checks only as payment.
>>47388616its a boomers vendor thing. go on gunbroker and various forums and they all take m.o and very few will take paypal.
>>47388903Im planning on just getting my barrels nitrided as well as a few other parts. as for button rifling, I genuinely dont care lmao. I dont even think theres a noticeable difference in barrel life, and if ther even is a difference in accuracy, no matter how good of a barrel you put on a galil, itll never be a precision rifle. although for gas block profile, get the bayonet lug gas block. just for the cool factor.
Lads, I think I'm going to have to buy an M1A. I'm a Vietnam fucking shit though so I think it's rather fitting.
