first for work with what you got
>>47960274you're the exception anon. probably the only (non retro) ar10 that I've ever seen that I wanted to own.
>>47960274Goddammit meant to reply to op>>47960257
>>47960285Well dang i wasn't expecting flattery
>>47960274they wish they were special
>>47960286>>47960300oh... now i just feel silly.
what are good modern battle rifles. Ideally around 1500 with a folding stock kind of like a FAL para. Looking into AR-10s right now but they are pretty boring. Right now I think my ideal option is an XCR but its kind of pricey.
>>47960540>battle rifle>modernYou serious?
>>47960590I just love those curved mags.
>>47960554Is the NGSW 6.8mm a battle rifle round or an assault rifle round?
>>47960617>AR-10s right now but they are pretty boring. Right now I think my ideal option is an XCR but its kind of pricey.Dress up an AR10 to unboring not pants, gogo boots and stripper glitter and your in XCR range. Or just get boring and put the difference into a suppressor and you WILL be happier.
>>47960645It's an intermediate cartridge.
>>479606456.8 spc? No. .30spc I could see! Give me one of those in an H.C.A.R. and I will stfu about H.C.A.R., except to piss on everyone who doesn't have one.
>>47960148Okay boys, range day tomorrow for real this time.Does anyone have a lead on a home made CETME sight adjustment tool? I've bought a real one from Sarco about a month ago but here we are two weeks into January, no such tool.
Christ this thing will not latch on the tabs. it will latch just in front though but that can't be good for zero/eye relief
>>47960892Good lord anon you're still fighting with that thing?Good luck my man, don't break it like gorilla hands did
>>47960928if he can afford one, he can definitely buy two
>>47960804Pretty sure if you have a pen or metal tube you can saw/dremel away some ends and use that
>>47960975Based>>47959387Beautiful and welcome fren
>>47960892Scratch that got it by being careful (please don't flip my picture gookphone)
>>47961011As it turns out I do have a dremel, cool now I've got a project
>>47961020this was a lot less contentious then the Spokane Question
Aight what the fuck else am I supposed to do with this stupid thing
I know this isnt BR related but you guys are my only thread i like and im excited. my 2k rounds of 7.62x39 ive had backordered for almost two months just shipped. I was getting anxious and about to buy an extra 1k round in person to hold me off since i only have about 200 rounds of it left.
>>47961237Fucking nigger phone
>>47961256You in WA?
>>47961237You shoot it
Got a ptr on my birthday. My BR collection is complete.

I'm looking to get the necessary tools to build a FAL. I've ordered a receiver wrench, a barrel vise, and timing tools. What else do I need? I know I need pin gauges and go gauges, so any recommendations on what brand or where to get them from?
>>47961574I'd start with a kit and receiver if you aint got one already
>>47961610Receivers are out of stock. Considering an Imbel kit on gunbroker or waiting it out for a G1 or StG58 kit.
>>47961257Mines doing it too. I have a gookphone
>>47961422You can only say your collection is complete once you have a Type 64>>47961723DSA Forged are in stock
>>47961203We have new glam!
>>47961755I think only the R1s are in stock. Not looking to build a Rhodesian yet, unfortunately.
>>47961237Move above the equator with it.

>>47961833Please.... I need to save for a house. I'm tired of being a rentcuck. I have a crippling addiction to serotonin and buying guns gives me that sweet sweet happy chemical. Don't tempt me.
>>47961887Buy a house and land

So today I shot my c308 for the first time and the only ammo I could find in stores was pic related. Every 3ish shots I'd get a failure to eject. Was it the ammo causing this or was it my gun? I kinda blamed it on the ammo because it's reduced recoil ammo
>>47961320Congrats! But your BR collection can never be complete
>>47962428>shot my c308 for the first time>first timecould be that or, it could be the ammo. for the ptr91 the recommended ammo for it is 145-150 grain. i'll have to find the source for that, but for now just trust me. if its a used rifle, it would throw the first idea out the window.
>>47961203What that b bb
>>47962491It's used I traded an AR lower for it
>>47960274what receiver is that?
Okay I need some advice, I'm undertaking the great Swiss quest for a STGW57. I have a parts kit sans receiver and barrel. A guy locally is selling an AMT barrel for $1k. Normally these go for ~$2k minimum. Good deal, right? BUT the barrel is in .308 AND is 4" shorter than the OEM SIG 510 barrel (20 vs 24").Should I go for it just so I can focus on the receiver? Or wait for the 7.5 barrel I really want.
>>47961345If you were willing to sell some. I don't have an AK but my friend does and he's looking for ammo.
>>47962592Damn that's a good deal. It could be the ammo. Since it's essentially a recoil operated rifle that could be it. (Yeah yeah I know blowback isn't the same as recoil operated but it's close) i would try a box of regular stuff if you can find it. Check ammoseek often and you'll find some that's decently affordable.
>>47962428If it's a brand new rifle it probably needs to be broken in. Or your mags are bad, if you're using HK mags they can sometimes not feed correctly and need to file them a bit.
So, aside from the rail and rear sight, what's the difference between a PTR and a C308? The receivers for the C308 are made by PTR, aren't they?
>>47962428Very well could be the ammo. Are you using the aluminum mags or the steel ones?
>>47962655How much does it matter to you how it looks or is "correct?" If it will bother you that it isn't a correct length for the rifle then I would hold off. I don't know how easy it is to replace barrels on those but if it's easy then you could get both but that's even more money just to be able to shoot it sooner.
Better late than never right?
gorilla anon here again, been dicking around with the mount again, found this link. is it possible to add this to the pastebin for future reference? i feel as though with the new wave of buyers, this issue is bound to come up again.https://www.geekgunman.com/www.mg-42.net/G3_scope.htmlafter experimenting with the little shims in the mount, yes my receiver is in fact, out of spec.
>>47962713I've never held a c308 that i felt was good quality. The welds on the receivers were shit compared to my ptr and other ptr's I've seen. All of the c308s I've played with have had really sticky cocking tubes that made it hard to use. One you would have had to slam the butt on the floor to open because neither me nor the counter guy could get the action open.
>>47962696I've got some 7.62x51 coming in the mail tomorrow I'm very excited. It was really fun to pop some targets between the failures to eject>>47962699They are HK mags. Do you have any recommendations on mags I should get?
>>47962771Not him but I've read that steel mags are more reliable. I only have aluminum mags.
>>47962598Its a cheapo dpms set. It was intended to be a stand in until I could get an sr25 pattern set, lmt mws lower and centurion upper. But alas it runs good enough and I'm spending that money on ammo
>>47962771C308 is a CETME clone. Get the steel mags, they're the proper CETME ones and work a lot better for that rifle
>>47962682nah, im not selling any of it. its just stacking up so ill have enough to hold me over until american companies make cheap steel case 7.62x39 incase import ban.
I know shit about the G3 platform but is a pre-ban HK91 with the OG claw mount and some mags for $2,900 a good deal? A gunstore 2 hours away from me has one for that price
>>47962855>>47962789Just ordered a couple steel g3 mags and some steel CETME mags thanks for the help boys
>>47962945Mags are cheap. If you're not in a ban state then preban means nothing other than "old". Hk91s do go for a lot of money though.
>>47962771HK mags *should* work fine but like another anon said, it's a CETME clone and not a G3 clone. As a result the steel CETME mags are the ones designed for it. I'll provide a link below. But the HK ones are fine. I've heard different stories from different places, ones that work better than the others and vice versa. I prefer the aluminum HK mags because they're a lot lighter and my CETME feeds from them just fine.>>47962713The C308 is a Century Arms International assembled rifle using surplus Spanish CETME parts kits and PTR-built receivers.The PTR is an American built HK-91/G3 clone. Generally speaking, the PTR is built to a higher standard with better and newer parts and QC.Before the coof, you could get a C308 for *much* cheaper than a PTR though both weren't that expensive. Now you're looking at $1k for a C308 and $1300++ for a PTR.>>47962916No worries m8, looking forward to that.Anyway here's a good deal on the steel CETME mags. I wonder if they work on PTRs? https://www.jgsales.com/c308-and-cetme-20rd-surplus-308-magazine,-vg,-used.-p-2415.htmlThe middle mag in my pic is the 20 round CETME one.
I joined a ptr/hk 91 group on facebook to try and find parts and it's like 90% of these people have bipods and big ass scopes to shoot paper while brg has irons and very few rails. Am I missing something or are the normies just being normies.>Inb4 brg doesn't actually shoot their guns
>>47962945HK91s are worth a pretty good amount of money. I'd look into it ngl, they haven't been made in many years
>>47963102It's the newest version of Boomer forums so they're just normalfags.Bipods and scopes are cool though. I just can't afford them
>>47961887Buy a house and land and woman
>>47963093>$1300++ for a PTR.I got my PTR from my lgs for $1k. Last weekend. And it's brand new. Does that mean I got a good deal? No rail, though.
>>47962655Do it and then do a 7.5 when you can so you have both.
>>47963151That's an amazing deal. Either the owner doesn't know or he really liked you.For comparison, about 3 weeks ago I saw a new PTR-91FR come up on Atlantic for $1300 shipped
>>47963151I got mine for like $1,150 or so, so I’d say that’s a good deal. The way prices keep climbing I wouldn’t be surprised if it gets higher
>>47963151I got mine from atlantic last week for 1050 without a rail.
>>47962916>just stackingNow is the time to stack. Be prepared to civil unrest, electrcity and fuel supply disruptions.
>>47962945As a shtf weapon it is not worth more, as a collector piece it will go up faster.
>>47962945Does it have an OD green wide handguard? Does it come with a scope?
>>47963093>steel CETME mags. I wonder if they work on PTRs?https://youtu.be/15NOo0pVESE?t=212of course, like anything YMMV.
Is my AR-10 in 6.5 CM a battle rifle?
>>47963425It's not letting me link it but if you go to the AZ specific armslist and look for an HK91 you will find it
>tfw korean M1s never ever
>>47963568$90 bipod, $200 scope mount, $10 worth of mags, wide black handguard is maybe $100. $2900 is a little steep if you ask me.
what does brg think of the MC 51
>>47960274What are the specs on that puppy?

Should I get an RFB?
>>47963480A FUCKING CLASSIC

>>47963960*SNIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIF* No get a p50
>>47963480Why the fuck can't women be funny?
Do PTR-91 mags go for $7 to $10 now?
>>47963960If you get a new one, yes. Those and the RDB are good now.
>>47964022Because only men are capable of true existential suffering
Mind if I join? Or is my Fal to fugged?
Started watching upotte, it's hilarious. Fal is unironically best girl, sako I like as well.
>>47964022They never had to be funny to get laid so no selective pressure for 200k+ years.
>>47964037Yes.HKparts has a box of 36 for $200+$21 shippingOtherwise Robertrtg has them $7 each + shipping and their shipping is steep. I paid $20 for shipping 5 mags and an empty ammo box
>>47964064Alright thanks man, I feel like these will only go up. Gonna buy some before I own the rifle.
>>47963600Phil was supposed to have 100k wormwood M1s, too.
>>47963480I personally hate you now. Don't do that again.
>>47963567So is a .243Win AR10, think about it.

>>47964052Come on in! Make your bed.
>>47964153No worries man I'm up to 12 now, not sure how much higher I'll go. My rifle bag has 5 pouches so 5+1, 1 spare for each. Figure that's good for now

>>47964686True, but it will be ahain next year.
>>47964052Pretty slick FAL. I've been wanting to build something similar.
>>47961237>halbek devicequite kino, does it make any difference? FW did a video on it and said the muzzle has the same recoil, just downwards

>>47966278It's sad to me, regardless of the condition. I did see a photo of the Phil M1s and these literally looked unearthed... But with Trump out, let's face ZERO chance of any reimport of American surplus.
Morning. I'll do my work out later
>>47967363Have a nice coffee, it's good for you!
Slow day, boys. I've gotten 5% closer to making my own wooden furniture, I gave a surplus set of furniture to my buddy who actually has all the woodworking tools, he's gonna dick around with them and see what he can recreate with scrap wood. I should have a set in Walnut by the end of the summer if I play my cards right. Would anyone here be interested in any new wooden furniture for their PTR? Not any time soon, but at some point in the future?
>>47967623This is a guarantee
>>47967836Depends. Can I get a wide wood handguard?
>>47967836If you mean wide handguard proflie, G3 furniture with matching buttstock and pistol grip from custom stock blank, Indian Rosewood, hell yeah!
>>47963093>Now you're looking at $1k for a C308>tfw just picked up an old CAI cast receiver CETME with wood furniture (not the terrible aluminum ones) for $600 in a FTF cash sale

>>47968234I love Mamako!
>>47968169>$600 in a FTFNot bad. No sales tax, no transfer fee, no forms, no shipping... ideal really. As long as it feeds.

Can you get a SG542 in the US? Or were they only imported to Canada?
>Boomer probably bought up that 7.62 ammo from yesterdayI guess I'll stick to buying my single box of 1.00 per round ammo like a good boy.
>>47968974Nonstandard you say? Check mine when I bore out the BR-10 flashhider to 0.375" for a .358Win retro upper? AR10s only have no soul when you buy them. When you build one, they suck your soul into themselves!
>>47969087My first thought this morning was an HK SL7, but it was vewy early.
>>47969159True, can't really say mines gonna be clone correct anyways since I'm planning on custom wood furniture. Speaking of which, what companies would be best for that?
>>47968241Me too, just wait til the sun goes down at 311
What is the color on the GI PTR? Is that classified as just GI Green or is it called something else?
>>47969209>what companies would be best for that?Straight off my build list: Blackgunswooddotcom, 316 area 393_/4434 ask for Gene. Note AR10 upon order! Ironwood Designs has a pistol grip that is closer to A2 than Blackguns ergo grip, comes unfinished.
>>47969651Thanks, do you know if they would do a round handguard, or do they only specialize in triangle handguards?
>>47969477Idk about that specific one but they have multiple greens across the platform and some are quite close to each other so if you're doing an autism build then just be certain it's the right one.
>>47969699Black guns wood does not, I would ask ironwood designs if they could, although I'd expect to pay a premium. Pic related stock is blackgunswood, they have a rubber butt pad. Pistol grip is ironwood designs. If you can't find a round wood foregrip you could get a round pri forgrip, would look pretty neat
>>47969863Ah gotcha, thanks for the help anon.
>>47962746Thanks for the guide, friend. My ZF-1 came in the mail today and thankfully it fit after getting it to sit on there JUST right. Now I'm afraid to fuck with it

What sights do you guys use for your battle rifles? I have a primary arms 1-6 scope but after seeing this pic I really want to get a red dot or holo.
>>47972071If you do anything a red dot is usually better for then you should probably not use a BR for it.
>>47972071desu it actually looks good in person
>>47972094Whats wrong with using a BR with a red dot? What if you're engaging targets less than 200 yards?

Good range day with the boys. I discovered that CETMEs do not like to feed with underfilled mags though. Failure to feed almost every time in mags with 5 or 6 rounds loaded. But it also could be that the gun is filthy and I'm gonna be cleaning her here in a sec.Something else I noticed when they were failing to feed and eject - the cases had big scrapes taken out of the sides. But yeah I'm chalking up the FTEs up to being dirty or weak mag springs.>>47972242Nah not too dark. We got up there about 230p PST and we were only there until about 430 with a decent amount of sun. No snow this time though
>>47973363It should be.
>>47972684More for me. Also /r/ Alpenflage jumper with Flectarn webgear /fa/shion show, anon you promised...
>>47973622>about 230p PSTThere it is. A short session, but here's hoping the sun wasn't in your eyes?
How tard am I if I can't find the HK91 sling on RTG site? Hep? Willing to go to HK Parts, but avoiding it because they have the X91 drum in stock!
>>47973901Thankfully no, just cold and wet. But that's the Washington way.
That's one mf dirty bolt
>>47973169Yes. You can switch out the oem stock as well for aftermarket stocks.
I'm beginning to think this rifle has never been cleaned in its 18 years on earth.Is this goopy gel shit on the firing pin spring oil?
>>47974250I think it's firing pin stretching grease. Sometimes if they're too short, they rub them down in it to extend the length.
odd request, but do any of you have this image un-watermarked? I had it saved, and used it as wallpaper on my computer but lost it. My dad saw the wallpaper and asked me if I'd email him the image "Anon is that an FN? Yknow I used to keep one of those under my bed as a teenager" I can't find it anywhere
>>47974363I have a folder full of springfield t48 drawings. ill try and find that one.
>>47973857Sorry anon I got called out of state for work for a few days, I havent forgotten.Here's flec and hand painted strict combo to hold you over
did I do good /brg/?
>>47974136what the fuck is wrong with your foot
>>47974534wood floors need wood furniture
>>47974363sorry anon, none of the filenames I have don't match up with the number on that image. This is the best I had.
>>47974668all good. thanks anon
>>47961087>>47960980>>47960892Can I get a qrd? Looks like he has a ptr upper and a hk 91 lower but I don't have a good eye for this and am probably dead wrong.
Put my ptr in the little bit of snow we got last week.
>>47974723>upper>lower>on a g3 cloneclaw mount is a finnicky mistress, and will only seat in a particular spot on the receiver. that or theres issues with the mount itself that prevent it from sitting properly. OR it could be that the receiver is out of spec. anyhow that anon got his right, mine is still fuggdd
Best place to get FAL mags? Ordered a bunch of PTR mags already.
>>47963960They're great. Buy one if you can get it under 1200
>>47964052Does she kick harder now that you've cut the weight like that?
>>47964255Y'know when Amy was a kid everyone laughed when she said she wanted to be a comedian when she grows up.Noone is laughing now.
>>47974037It's a cleaner bolt now.
>>47974494Thanks, Flecky harness ordered. Ogling jumper at Sportsman's Guide.
>>47974602Not gonna have a wooden recliner and wooden couch, penis breath. The kitchen table is all real wood farmhouse shit the woman picked out.
>>47974929SCAR owners just have to be different, but jeez dude!
>>47975171No. Wooden furniture on your PTR dumdum
>>47975171>not using fence wood for a chaise loungeIt's like your not even poor.
>>47975196Let me do the /brg/ work out for a while and I'll think about it
>>47975171What's this guy's problem
Post comfy blankets now that its finally cold out
>>47975457the fucking you mean finally cold out my guy do you live in southern louisiana
>>47975457Its not done yet
>>47971325I was going to say something nice about your gun until I saw the bayonet and trip
>>47975455he's new. Give him time.
What's with this thread and fellating the Galel? It's an overpriced Zionist 5.56 and nowhere close to even basic shit like the VZ or Valmet. Hell even the fucking Vektor line was better since it had better proof of concept across various climates in Africa.
Do you ever think "wow, I am so fucking retarded. How did I ever get to this point in my life without accidentally dying?"Well that's how I feel with trying to put this bolt back on the bolt carrier. The rollers keep locking and despite the numerous guides and videos I've ingested, I still can't do it. The rest of cleaning took less time than this and I'm not even done.
>>47975821It's very hard the first or second time. Just service it frequently enough or make a video of you doing it to rewatch.
>>47975864So am I right in thinking that when you're rotating the bolt clockwise, you are to press and hold the rollers down against the resistance of the locking spring as you're turning it? I want to make sure I'm not doing anything mechanically wrong, just more of "do you even lift bro"
>>47975980The first time I had to reassemble it, it made me want to never do it again.
>>47976035My wife walked by and said "you're still doing this? I think you broke it"No, just bad at it
>>47976058I didn't know shit about the PTR when I picked it up and my buddy removed the bolt from the carrier as a prank. Took me like 30-40m to figure it out even with videos.
>>47975821I had trouble doing it on my first time, don't feel too stupid
>>47976088>>47976202Alright check this out. 1 of 2. Bolt head, notice the polished area from my 3 hours of fighting it
>>47976088>>47976202>>479763202 of 2, tension lever. Does everything look normal?
>>47976320>>47976329What I try to do is>Put the bolt on loosely, keep it at 90*, rollers in>Push down on the end of the lever that points towards the back of the BCG>Push the bolt back until the rollers touch the shoulders of the locking piece, they should stay inside of the bolt and not stick out>Line up the gap here so the little claw on the lever can go through it>Turn the bolt so it's the right way up
>>47976518Thanks anon, I'm going to take a short break before getting back at it. 2 hours being stuck on something so simple as this is stupid frustrating.
>>47976566leave it for tomorrow and it will probably go right in. Being frustrated will just make it harder good luck
>>47976645Good book on this
>>47976710As a sysadmin I experience the need for this book often
>>47976645Just like working on a car. Half the time is spent cursing and figuring out where the fuck that piece of shit bolt went
Sell me scar mags please anyone.
Thought I had a fucked up cocking tube gap so ptr said theyd take a look at it and instead shipped me back with a broken fucking paddle mag
>>47976740Sysadmin with guns is a little too dangerous desu. Sell them to me just to be safe.>>47976792Convert to pmag lower.
>>47976887It just means I autistically dive into projects and don't stop until they're complete or read about them/watch videos about them until I can work on it again.It's a weird field though, very few younger people (I'm 29, my colleagues are all 40s-60s) and none of them like guns, even though most of them are vets.
>>47976822Did they fix the gap? I might have the same issue. My PTR needs like 40 or 50 pounds to charge
Can SKS come play?
>>47975821Use a C-clamp on it
>>47976916I had the same issue, but it was kind of intermittent, like it would keep catching on something , they didn't give me any updates if they worked on it or not and I haven't put it back together and tried it yet, I'll let you know in a bit
>>47976923Sorry but it's intermediate not full power so can't be a BR. /msg/ is your best bet. Or start a thread for them + non AR 556 guns, they're always lonely.
>>47976916Just put it back together and it's the same, they didn't do anythingPTR go to absolute shit or were they always this bad? picked this thing up like 6 years ago and didn't really touch it cause I shot other stuff
>>47976518I should be more clear - I can rotate the bolt to the proper position just fine. It's just that when I do, the rollers are locked in the engaged position and I can't insert the BCG back into the rifle.
>>47961203God damnit, I'm still waiting on my Type-1 and it probably won't be done until May.
>>47977075You can't push the bolt too far back, it has to be just far enough that the locking piece can't push the rollers out, and just near enough for the hook to pass through that gap on the bolt
>>47977075Put it in backwards
>>47975821There's an aftermarket tool that you can buy that REALLY helps with bolt reassembly/disassembly
>>47977084>>47977122What is all this nonsense, just put the bcg back together and drop it in the receiver backwards to unlock the rollers. Who needs a tool to do that?
>>47977136That's why I think something is wrong or I'm doing something wrong. I'm putting much more than 50 lbs of force on twisting the bolt on so the spring shouldn't be an issue.
>>47977171Did you get the bolt head on and the rollers locked out, or are you still fighting to twist it into place?
>>47977228Twist it into place. But like i said above it's not that I can't get the bolt into its final position, it's that the rollers are engaged and I can't put the bcg back into the rifle.The guides I've read said to leave 3/16 inch gap between the bolt face and the bolt itself but there's no way that's possible from what I can see. Pic related - bolt in place, rollers engaged and locked.
>>47977256Good, now drop that into the receiver backwards. The rollers will catch on the side of the receiver and unlock.
>>47977282I saw that too but won't that bend the receiver?
>>47977285Maybe. Way I see it is I'm probably going to shoot the barrel out long before I see any consequences from my misdeeds. The rifle undergoes a ton of stress during firing, I think it should be able to handle me pushing things with my scrawny hands?
>>47976887Maybe all the ar10s should convert to scar mags instead.
>>47977298Fair enough.I'll see if I can send my step by step pics before booba takes over and go from there.1 of 5 - locking mechanism placed horizontally in bcg
>>479773112 of 5 - bolt placed on locking mechanism, upside down from final position.
>>479773193 of 5 - rotating bolt, pressing down rollers so that they're not engaged. They're touching the shoulders of the locking mechanism.
>>479773234 of 5 - second to last position and where I'm getting stuck. The rollers are not locked and engaged and there's a gap between the bolt and bcg per instructions
>>479773315 of 5 - the gap mentioned in previous post. This is as far as I can get.
>>47977339I can't see it but it looks like that's not underneath the anti-bounce lever? I'm not sure if it's supposed to be or not
>>47977372Yeah that's the part I meant. Bolthead won't rotate any further? There's a ramp/channel dealie that the bounce lever is supposed to follow when you're rotating the bolt, makes it easier to get on.
>>47977437Something like this right? Or are you talking about the lever to push down while turning the bolt?
>>47977452Yeah, that's my understand of how it goes back together
>>47977469Well fuck. Am I missing a piece? The video of the German airforce guy doing what I've spent literally 4 hours doing took him maybe 30 seconds. However when he put the bolt onto the locking piece, it clicked like it attached to something. Mine doesn't do that
>>47973169>>47973203the acr is the reddit tier stock dont do it>>47973763ugg is best>>47974534its not a c308 so yeah
>>47977506Firing pin, spring, locking piece, bolt head, bcg is all there is senpai. If you went smaller I can't help you
>>47977529Nah that's the furthest I went.Well I'm stumped and my fingers are swollen from doing this for hours. Gonna plug away for a little longer then idk. I'm really hesitant to try the reverse bonk method. My dad was a dirtbag but he was right about one thing, if you're forcing it then it's probably not the right way to do it.
>>47977544Unfortunately I've only ever done a reverse bonk. I'm counting on PTR's garbage barrel life to save me future embarrassment.
>>47977555Thanks for the help anon I appreciate your time. Hopefully I'll have a good update soon!
>>47977555Reverse bonk worked, took less effort than I expected it to. It's gonna be my go to strategy.Fuck.
>>47973622>FTFCould just be shitty mags, too. I know 2 of my PTR mags give me failures to feed almost every time I use them>FTEThat's a completely different problem that might be more serious. Are they sticking in the chamber? Or stripping the rim off? In my experience these things eject casings with the power of a thousand suns
