/FNV/ General: Fallout Themed GunsN'ShitWhy is Fallout NV so goddamn aesthetic? Give me guns that look like they belong in the wasteland.
16-20 weeks for a barrel :(
>>48417629Nyet, rifle is fine, don't need barrel.
>>48417657Those Canucks won't kill themselves
>>48417362Fuck yah bro! Been waiting for this thread!
>>48417717Fuck that's sexy.
>>48417394The early FK BRNO prototypes looked like they came straight from a fallout game
>>48417707I wonder what the deal is with that threaded front end? For a suppressor of some sort?
>>48417810I'd love to own one of those guns if they weren't so stupidly expensive.
>>48417819its a port gun for the Bradly, open bolt and full auto
>>48417362NV is my favorite game of all time but it's pretty ugly as a result of being held to 3's artstyle. I mod out the Service Rifle with M16A1s in all of my playthroughs.
>>48417821>no classy Czech whore to tote my big iron
>>48417861>I mod out the Service Rifle with M16A1s in all of my playthroughs.As god intended ofc.I literally own an M16a1 because of FNV.
>>48417362Fallout needs to return to including more modern weapons. I hate the idea that Fallout=ugly guns or guns that look like they could have been prototypes from the Cold War.
>>48417938100% this, i love me some beat to shit fallout guns, but i also love modern guns making an appearance. P90's/Mp5's/Barrett 50. Cals things of that nature would be awesome. But not like, overly modern guns. But modernish
>>48417938Peak Fallout aesthetic is when they tap into the 80's-90's military looks. New Vegas had a little bit of this with stuff like the Assault Carbine, Service Rifle, Light Machinegun and Marksman Carbine, but Fallout 2 was full of weapons of this aesthetic. >P90>FN-Fal>G11>H&K CAWS>Pancor Jackhammer>XL70E3>SAW version of the SA80
>>48417968Why limit yourself to the 80's-90's when the Great War took place nearly a century after?
>>48418049Because you gotta find that sweet spot. A lot of super modern guns have really lost that cool factor about them. I know it's only an opinion, but i can't relate to a M4 with an Eotech attached to it with some Magpull furniture, it just feels soulless; however, guns with that retro feel to them have that better days sorta vibe to them, that retro nostalgia for an age i was never born in gives me strong "i wish we could go back to this time" sorta feeling, it's hard to explain, but an M16a1 in a fallout game would have so much more soul then something modern. Modern guns reflect the era they come from, and modern guns come from a shitty era my friend. When i see an M4 i think of society filled with niggers and queers. Is any of this making any sense to you?
>>48418012A lot of these weren't fully modeled in an isometric game iirc.Anything to keep the screen from looking like Call of Battlefield: Black Warfare 19
>>48418114Not really. The series takes place in an alternate timeline so kvetching about niggers and faggots doesn't really make much sense as far as we know. The game takes place in the future, not the past or present. So it doesn't make much sense that people would just stop working on developing firearms after a certain point. Even if you think modern rifles like the M4 are "soulless" it's not like they were created for the sake of inventing something uglier than the M16A1 to trigger autists posting on the internet 20 years later. I'll admit, modern firearms would clash with the artstyle that Bethesda came up with for 4, but fit in fine with the originals that took inspiration from a wide variety of settings and time periods, not just the Jetsons.
>>48418144yeah. there were only a handful of actual weapon sprites. For some examples, the P90 had the same sprite as the 10mm SMG and the m60 had the same sprites as the flamer.
>>48418167>>48418049I'm not him, but I'd limit weapons largely to 80's-90's purely because that was the era Fallout 1 and 2 were made in. Those were the weapons that were cutting edge and experimental at the time the franchise was conceived. I'm personally not opposed to more modern weapons, and certainly anything is better than the literal scrap weapons in 4, but if I were in charge of the franchise, I'd deliberately keep to the usage of 20th century weapons (as far as real guns go)
>>48418220The scrap guns were kinda cool; if they had been implemented right and were only found on the level 1 nigger enemies or could be made quickly out in the wasteland (kinda like that Last of Us game) for certain tasks/ scenarios it would have been head and shoulders above the failed coathanger abortion we got.
>>48418220I may not agree with you but I see your point. As long as it's anything other than Bethesda's current obsession with DUDE 1950's and guns that look like shit.
>>48418167Yeah i know, but i'm talking more about how people feel about these guns in real life, vs the actual lore of the game. If we're only talking about the lore of the game and adding modern firearms, then yeah sure, why not I guess. But i was getting off on why games like FNV are even so popular to begin with. Setting aside the lore of the game, i hate this gay modern world in real life, when i hop on fallout new vegas i'm not slapping on modern music, i'm going to be listening to oldies and feel good music, music that comes from a better age in real life. In my larping brain, guns with the 70's-80's-90's vibe really turn me on, because it was a simple time, getting progressively more simple the further you go back. Like i stated here >>48417882 I literally bought an M16a1 because of the retro vibes FNV gave me. There is something so romanticize about holding guns that come from an age when things where better and more god fearing; wondering an empty world filled with nothing. Idk man, it's why i play fallout and love it as much as i do. But, you know... that's just like... my opinion man...
Saw this in the ugly gun thread but I think it's fucking dope1 of 3
>>484184402 of 3
>>484184523 of 3
>>48418440>>48418452>>48418465Yeah, this thing is actually amazing looking. Whoever put that in an ugly guns thread was probably trolling for (you's).
>>48418012noPeak fallout is a mish-mash of many styles all in conflict. Futuristic, cutting edge prewar tech is retro futuristic like robots, power armor, lasers, etc. Less important tech is modern, like the deagle and 10mm pistols, the minigun, most explosives, etc. Then you still just have old stuff like cowboy shit or some other anachronistic theme.
>>48418440I'm not an anglo but god save the queen
>>48418642That's a G3.
>>48417394There has to be a way to make that retarded 22 mag "THUNDERSTRUCK" look like this.
>>48418642The fuck are you on about m8?
>>48419009Its a CETME, you can tell from the rear iron sight. Its not a drum diopter
I have a gun which everyone claims is fallout themed but it isn't
>>48417629I always wanted a survivalist's rifle clone, it's hard to justify another caliber for a video game gun as niche though.
>>48418049ive always wanted to build something similar to this but with a longer barrel and rail. oh and matching camo.
>>48417938I disagree, in a world where oil is rare, I like that polymer clad weapons are rare, cold War prototypes are a little silly but fallouts more unique weapons are infinitely better suited to the setting than fallout 2's modern guns.>Israelis are huge into NV LARPing.
>>48419120I do too
>>48419494I guess stimmies are paying for it in some way, so there's that.I just know that it will feel amazing to clutch in my arms as I rock autistically back and forth in my small apartment.
>>48419117Close enough. Based on "God save the queen" I think the other anon took it for an SLR/FAL.
>>48417629Just buy it on midway like I did anon
I don't really have much to add here but I'd like to say I like this thread and give it a bump. Also sneed.
>>48419704That's a mid-length gas system. No thanks.
>>48417629God, please post this when it's complete. Survivalist Rifle and Light in the Darkness are my two top FNV guns. I'm a big Honest Hearts fanboy.
>>48419899Be assured that I will flex on all of you nerds the second it's done.I'm starting to wish I hadn't sold my 1911 now, they went and got pricey
>>48419997The only one that's close to the Light in Darkness is a colt commander or something like that. One guy's advice on /k/ was just to wait, save up, and spend a fairly good amount on an exact copy from a professional gunsmith. I'll probably do that one day. Once you show how well the Survivalist Rifle copy is doing, I'll really consider building that as well. I'll ask you what parts you used of course.
>>48417699That's fucking retarded where do I get one?
>>48420064It's been kind of a bitch to get some stuff since bull barrels have completely fallen out of favor. If anybody knows anybody with a .936 FSB, lemme know!
>>48417819>Either top tier bait or doesn't know it threads into armored vehicle
>>48417679almost no one does any decent wood furniture for an AR-10 :(
>>48417362Got my SAA because of NV and RDR2
>>48420129Very nice pistole Anon, may it serve you well.
>>48420129Based. I'm too chickenshit to take mine out on a hike, course it's much wetter where I am than there
>>48420064Colt New Agent would probably be closer, it has trench sights from the factory
>>48420206Shit that's the one I meant, haven't looked at it in a while. Might as well pay the good amount later on to get the exact copy. I swear I'll be rich one day.
>>48417362here's my version of that
>>48420293It's only there because I actually shoot it.As a wallhanger, of course the 20 rounder is better.
>>48420306I get it, I'll probably get a Torkmag 50/ 18 rounder for the Beawoo when it's done.Beautiful rifle.
>>48420237Where can I get a decent upper with wooden furniture for 50 AE?
>>48420366This is where I got minehttp://blackgunswood.com/
>>48420237Dammit anon.> slab side> A1 upper> no electro-anything> duckbill flash hider> bayonet> flat slip ring> green web sling> glorious wood furniture> no forward assist> pencil barrel> I'll bet the bolt has a solid firing pin retaining pinAnd you fuck it up with a plastic mag?!>get a 20-round mag like God intended
>>48420366There was a guy who did them. You'll have to go through old forums to find him. Of all of the autists, you are the most.
>>48420445Most of my lower parts and the dust cover are wrong as well.I'm sure someone could pick my build apart way further than I know.
There are a lot of guns I own because of Fallout. NV, 3, and 2 are the best. 1 is good since it's OG. The rest do not exist, and you'll never convince me otherwise.
>>48420366Wood furniture is blackgunswood dot net or whatever
>>48420560>>48420366But if you order from blackgunswood YOU NEED TO SPECIFY YOU WANT THE STRAIGHT, UNGROOVED A1 STYLE GRIP. Otherwise he sends you some fucking awful "ergonomic" grip
>>48420565This.>>48420237 here, I hate it.
>>48420565Damn, I am really glad I saw this! I was going to place an order with him in a couple of weeks
>>48420491>>48420560>>48420565Thank you fellow Vegas autists. I can't buy new guns for a while, probably until the end of the year, so I'm using that time to plan this out. I'm in NY so want to get the fixed mag. Is that something I would specify with whoever I order the lower from? And will NY send me to jail to be raped to death if my 10 round Beowuld magazines are not specified as such?
>>48420622Gun laws are for fags
>>48420661New York has State Mandated Homosexuality
Finished re-finishing the stock
Does this work here?Be cooler with a nuka cola can but do they exist?
>>48420759I did like the Fallout 3 Assault Rifle a whole lot
I was always disappointed that there was no m14 in fallout.
>>48417707I wish they made grease gun stock like that for normal AR's or handguards like that
>>48418167Modern guns with 1913 rails and such would look out of place with the clunky 50's/60's feel of the original games. You got guys walking around with 1 ton metal armour powered by a miniature nuclear reactor it would look oddly out of place with a scar or something along those lines. I think the late 90's is as far as they should go
>>48417863>mfw i wished for a nuclear winter
>>48420554Nice job on the BB gun.And I like the hose clamp on the forend of the shotgun.>next up, a 10mm?
>>48420560http://blackgunswood.com/products.html$325 a set
>>48421720The artstyle didn't become centered around the 50's until 3 and completely overdosed it with 4. In 1 and 2 you could hardly notice the influence from the era aside from the opening cutscenes. The look of the series was inspired from a ton of different time periods, not just the 50's. The original games included weapons that were modern relative to the development of the game. M4s with KAC RASs were showing up years before the games were in development.
>>48423557But they don't make much sense to include, lore-wise, where the US military was transitioning to more advanced energy weapons due to compact and lightweight battery/ energy tech being widely available.
>>48423838That was the case by the 2060's-70's. What about the entire first half of the 21st century? Lore-wise, there's no consistency between entries and there has never been an attempt by Bethesda or anyone else to give a definitive answer to the state of small arms in the universe.
>>48424133They seem to have skipped intermediate caliber assault rifles almost entirely. Sorry, it's not gonna be Call of Honor
>>48424160Every single Fallout game has assault rifles chambered in 5.56
>>48424167And none of them seem to have been standard issue for the pre war American military.Miss me with any Bethshit
>>48424192None of the different assault rifles to show up in the originals are described as being standard issue for the US military. Tactics was the only game to try and answer it with the M16A1 but most people don't even consider it canon.
>>48424192There is no standard service rifle shown in FO2 and FO1
>>48424246And the real reason you aren't, or God help us, shouldn't see RAILZ in these games is that they need to distinguish themselves from a sea of mediocre first person shooters. That's why the Retro-Futurism works so well for the series.
>>48424293The association with something as simple (and old) as rails to modern FPS games is your problem. The obsession with muh retrofuturism and complete rejection of anything that's familiar to our own world is how you end up with shit like this.
>>48424342Remember when i said "miss me with Bethshit"? They understand no nuance.
>>48424420Okay, and Fallout 1 and 2 included weapons that were modern relative to the time in which these games were developed, like the Deagle and P90. Even if you still limit yourself to this timeframe then spoiler alert: an M4 with muh railz is fair game.
>>48424192The standard service rifle is most likely the Service Rifle from FNV especially since the survivalist rifle was used during the occupation of canada. The survivalist rifle is most likely a swapped upper of the service rifle using the bigger 12.7 round at checkpoints to penetrate engine blocks or for anti-armour against the canadian insurgents in power armour
>>48424467Again, the need to distinguish themselves from 8 gorillion modern shooters is going to limit the inclusion of polymer railz mallninja ARs to a unique weapon. Mods exist for autistics like you to drag every real world gun into the game to your heart's desire.I respect the shit out of giving the M-16A1 wood furniture and making the M-4 clamshell and 5mm. It was fresh, especially in fucking 2010 codpocalypse canted hybrid thermal sight and magpul foregrip times.
>>48418440>all those tiny welds>they don't look badSomeone put real love and effort into this. That's always nice to see.
>>48424519The setting and game does a good enough job of distinguishing itself against other games. The only argument you have for not include these weapons is just because other modern shooters exist. It's not very solid desu. There was a time where WW2 settings dominated the FPS market, I guess the M3, M1 Garand, Thompson, C96 (all guns that have been in Fallout games) shouldn't have been included because it doesn't distinguish the games from the other WW2 FPS games, right?
>>48418642The Queen of Spain?
>>48417863I had a Czech whore gf. It wasn't worth it, anon
>>484245662010 was solidly Modern Warfare tertitory.I was there.You've missed the forest for the trees, it's not art, it is a product. You have to distinguish your product from its competitors to sell it. We aren't having threads about Call of Duty: The Big Red One every week here, are we?We aren't building what's his name's 1911 from Brothers in Arms with our shekels.
>>48418220My attitude is that anything 1950-1979 is the quintessential fallout "aesthetic", but later weapons can make an appearance as uniques. I don't get mods that give everything pic rails and ACOGs.
>>48424617cool, the series didn't start with New Vegas though so I don't see your point
>>48424616I'll be the judge of that!
>>48424630Where there a ton of ww2 weapons in 1 and two, or was it more unique 90s guns like P90s and Deagles and G11s?
>>48424566Rails and more modern guns would look out of place in fallout's setting. Everything in fallout is little clunky, the power armour, the cars, the fictional weapons. Having more modern weapons like the P90 or G11 work fine because they have a futuristic/modern look but they still retain the "clunky" look of fallout.
>>48424192The R91 (G3) is stated to be the standard issue rifle for the US Army in Fallout 3 in the Museum of History.
>>48424628The Fallout aesthetic is power armor, vaults, tribals, super mutants, etc and it's timeless. Guns aren't nearly as important in establishing the look of the setting. If you replaced the weapons of these characters with a modern AR, Garand, or lazer gun you could still tell that it's Fallout.
>>48424680>>48424628forgot to attach pic related
>>48424687Wtf are these old guns??Why doesn't that stupid bitch have a PA 3x ACSS on her AK??REEEEEE
>>48420736I'd believe it
Looks cool but handles like shit.
>>48417938Have the retro futurism with the laser/plasma weaponry, but fuck off with the ballistic weapons looking like absolute shit. Gimme a M16A1 not a water cooled hunk of metal.
>>48418480It looks like a Jessie James abomination, and I suspect you of owning at least 1 trucker t-shirt or bumper sticker.
>>48417629Where did you find a retro .50 beowulf upper? Can't find any that are in stock anywhere.
>>48421674Reproductions do exist.
>>48431420Where's that from? Do they sell separate parts?
>>48418415>>48421720Limiting your inspiration to some arbitrary period of time is lame because it limits creativity and was never what the series was about. The focus of Fallout should be on what happens after the Great War, not before. The period before the bombs dropped should be left as obscure and open to interpretation as possible because the series is ultimately about how people rebuild despite Bethesda's insistence in 4 and 76 to put that period of time front and center and make everything look like a post-apocalyptic jetsons. The original games took inspiration from a wide variety of settings and time periods, the obsession with the '50's didn't really start until the 3D games, even though it definitely played a prominent role in the originals. Something like a Beretta NGSW or riced-out Glock would fit in perfectly with a Vault City guard or Enclave trooper, but not an NCR cop or Ranger so you give those guys fudd guns. A Super Mutant, member of Caesar's Legion, or tribal is going to look alien and distinct whether or not he has a laser rifle, FAL, or G36.
>>48424160In 3, the museum of technology outright says that the standard rifle used by the U.S. Army is chambered in 5.56mm.
>>48424293>RAILZI think rails can work in the setting, though. Maybe not picatinny, mlok, or keymod, but dovetails or UIT rails look sufficiently retro enough to work.
>>48432554Picatinny rails are fine, even in the games that make the retro aesthetic more prominent. That guy is just a sperg
>>48420237Get. That. Pmag. Out. Of. There. Right now. Anon
>>48432583I guess it's more of a stylistic choice on my part. I've always like the 50's to late 70's aesthetic more. The Marksman Carbine and All American don't look out of place. Even the Combat Rifle in 4 and 76 has rails and I don't mind that gun's design either.
>>48432554It's not so much the rails as what you attach to them. Since the temptation to fill that real estate with a mall ninja garbage customization system is there
>>48432641It's a rejection of the modern hyper-consumeristic attachments cult we're after
>>48432687>>48432699I gotcha. I'm no fan of the "put attachments everywhere" shit either.
>>48432687>>48432699Those are just your own personal biases and opinions leaking into a series that never held a stance about it either way. It's a fine opinion to have, but it's not Fallout. In Fallout 2 you could have gunsmiths attach night vision scopes and extended magazines to your guns and I can definitely see something like a Wattz red dot sight or Vault-Tec rangefinder being a thing
>>48420123Just get an ar-10 takes takes 15 furniture. Mine takes 1 furniture and the only thing I have to worry about is drilling another hole into the pistol grip, and fitting the handguard near the gas tube.
>>48432754>Mine takes 1 furniture*Mine takes 15 furniture* is what I meant to say.
>>48432736I think what they're saying is that they don't want something like pic rel. I get it, too much can be too much.
>>48432780I get it, but there shouldn't be anything lore-wise that prevents that from happening in the first place.
>>48432736Ricing out your guns is fine you can add lasers to your 10mm pistol, turn your varmint rifle into a bootleg ratslayer etc. except all those mods and attachements are proprietary and retain that sort of older clunky feel to them where more modern guns with 1913 rail look too highspeed low drag
>>48432868Also being able to put whatever you want on any gun would fuck up game balance which is why a lot of those mods tend to screw up the balance really easily
>>48432832Yeah, I can respect that.
>>48432868But why does Fallout HAVE to have a clunky and old look to it? Places like Vault City convey a sense of advanced technological progress, why shouldn't they have weapons that reflect that?
>>48432554I think fallout should be a world where picatinny and MOLLE never existed or came into existence just before war like the transistor
>>48432913I think it can be that way but just without copy and pasted modern weapon #455454 things like the shotgun you posted convey that without looking like something I could buy at my LGS. It would takeaway from fallout's uniqueness
>>48432913I think it's largely because Bethesda took the whole "50's" thing that was sort of in the background of the original games and ran, perhaps, a bit too far with it. The original games were something of a mix in terms of pre-war art direction, with a good deal of brutalism and, I guess today we'd call it "diesel punk" thrown in. >>48432920I do like the idea of Fallout's conventional equipment not going past the 80's. I feel like it's a bit more in line with Interplay's old designs, especially when you consider that the original was something of a reskinned Wasteland.
>>48432931Thats the winchester combat shotgun from the first two games, you don't get more Fallout than that. Also guns and other weapons aren't nearly as important in making Fallout unique as things like the plot, factions, and setting. Super Mutants, the Brotherhood of Steel, Enclave, Legion, etc aren't unique because of the weapons they carry. If anything the weapons are probably the least important part compared to what they look like, how they function as factions, and their place in the setting.
>>48432979This is true, they aren't as important in the grand scheme of things but it certainly adds to the fallout feel
>>48417362In the process of building this, gonna add a wooden stock to match.
>>48432920Transistors did happen. It’s been stated ingame before. Also the Platnum Chip would’ve had no way of existing if transistors weren’t around.
>>48420811based and banquetpilled
>>48432476This desu. Does the tribal in the back have an AUG or a Bozar? It doesn't matter either way because I can tell it's Fallout because it's obvious that it's Caesar meeting with other tribals. Who cares if pictaninny rails are present or not.
>>48432913Because modularity is a contemporary concept, fallout predates it. The guns are of an era (by product of the games also being of that era) where any scope or modification was custom or proprietary; and by and large guns were self-contained units issued without peripherals beyond cleaning kits. This is reflected in the art design.
>>484347821913 rails predate the release of the first game by a few years.
>>48432694That is airsoft, look at the magazines.I still want one, though.
>>48432913Because miniaturized electronics didn't exist
>>48435125They do though
>>48435125*for very long before the bombs droppedI don't remeber the exact year but I want to say it was 2065 when the first microchips started to be manufactured. Power Armor needs them.
>>48420064>>48420206Main reason I bought my New Agent. Also been hunting for a Browning Hi Power Renaissance that's under $3.5k.>I will have Maria and A Light Shining In Darkness
>>48419899>I'm a big Honest Hearts fanboy.>Light in the DarknessApparently not. It's a Light Shining In Darknesshttps://fallout.fandom.com/wiki/A_Light_Shining_in_Darkness
>>48435138Thats a gas laser, not solid state miniaturized electronic laser.
>>48435125This is what I subscribe to. Rails can exists, but they are really just for optics. I'm not that comfortable going beyond flat tops.
>>48418440>I think it's fucking dopeshut the fuck up, nigger
>>48418440Ehh, I don't like how it looks, but it does look like the owner had fun making it. Sure he would love talking about the build.
>>48431420>lusted after the ringsight for ten years>finally found one in a pawn shop for $75>not illuminated whatsoever and glass is crackedJUST MAKE ONE MORE RUN OF THEM YOU FUCKS AHHHH
>>48424342tbf some of the game files describe it as a LMG, they just skipped over the assault rifle they had introduced in the LAST game and made the AK into DLC>>48424508>>48424673>>48432530i like to think its a clusterfuck of uncertainty (vis a vis the standard rifle) because they found themselves in a ww2 scenario of issuing lots of rifles. You had older stuff, newer stuff, weird carbines, all because of the changing demands on the battle field>oh no, our rifle works fine on humans but not robots>time to get the 7.62 out>Waaahhhhh it's too much recoil>Fuck okay, here's 5.56>waaaaahhhhh we need more bullets but less recoil for the hoards of chinese>okay here's 5mmrinse and repeat. The war may have reached the point they may have had issue supplying any 1 particular "standard" rifle too.>>484246641&2 were very different in a lot of ways, but 2 did have more "contemporary" weapons that were explicitly so. 1 had some.>>48434782This guy gets it, even if they put a glock into fallout it'd be basically just the original. No rmr riced out race guns, it'd be naked as can be. Any accessory would be some JB weld abomination>>48421451It actually is kinda a surprise since they leaned hard into that cold war era, but the combat rifle sorta fills the gap
>>48417629BASEDASEDOne day. One day
>>48420759You're living the dream, brother. Or my dream, at least
Recently got a '70s era Light 12, with which I plan to do this...<-->>48420811That's fucking awesome.
>>48436192Another good one
>>48431357Tromix has a couple left!You can mill out a standard C7 if they run out iirc
>>48417699>>48417707that looks like the ruger and m16 from gta vice city
>>48417362ContributingAnybody know where to get Hi Powers these days?For the guy making The Survivalist Rifle:https://imgur.com/gallery/70LJZTBhttps://imgur.com/gallery/PiTGy0b
>>48437276Thanky pard.Try LGSs, I've found a few well used ones at small shops.
Also, some hoarding faggot bought up all of the .50 that had been collecting dust at my lgs in one go. Bet the fucker doesn't even own one and thinks that bullshit law will pass
Sorry babe not now, I'm about to get into a four hour argument with strangers on the internet concerning whether miniaturized electronics and transistors exist in the Fallout universe.
Somebody make the "Yes." meme, but with a side profile of a Veteran Ranger helmet.
>>48431984I'm not him, but I spent 20 years searching and compiling the parts to build one. I finally got everything together except the open bolt fire control kit, which the ATF basically considers an MG on it's own, and one other part I couldn't find and figured I'd have to get machined.Then I had to sell my M-16 due to money reasons, so I traded off all my various M-16 parts to a friend who collects MGs and has several M-16s. I don't know if he ever built an M231 out of it, but he did think the parts were cool when I explained what they were.The parts are out there, but some of them are VERY scarce. The govt has long since surplused out all of it so you'll have to find a collector willing to part with it, or a collector who died and buy from his estate.
>>48439628Yeah honestly all I want is a similar stock and smooth handguards I just think those two look cool
>>48417362I was thinking about it but, if there was a fallout game that took place in anchorage after the war, what kind of factions would be there? US and Chinese military remnants?
>>48440003If the game is set hundreds of years after the bombs dropped then it's probably too long for either entity to still exist. Imo the setting is at it's most interesting when its surrounded by the cultures and communities that sprout up after, rather than seeing how people cling to the past.
>>48440149Yeah although there would probably be groups influenced by both
>>48440171I think taking the Honest Hears approach and portraying both groups as godlike Randall Clarke entities could be neat.
>>48439944>>48439944The wire stock was one of the easier parts for me to locate. They never ended up adopting the M231 to be used in Bradleys so the parts were sold off as surplus. I found a guy who had a pile of the stocks still new in the VCI/foil wrappers.Luckily that's about the easiest M231 part to make, so if you can't find one you could make or have a set made without too much trouble.The handguards are another story. They are the same handguard as is used in the 9mm DOE M-16 upper receiver.They're rare as hen's teeth as even originally there were very few overrun handguards available after the initial, and only, production run. I've since seen them sell for as high as $500/set. With any luck someone has since made reproduction DOE handguards. If so, that's your best bet for finding a pair.The pair I found was one of the only original and intact sets I ever saw for sale. New, but not in the wrapper. I don't remember what I paid but I'm pretty sure it wouldn't have been more than $150 or so, max. I think the seller just didn't realize how rare they are.Good luck.
>>48440003Werent the chinese fully pushed out of Alaska? I thought the US was fighting on mainland china when the bombs dropped.
>>48436227Oh fuck, im gonna cum
>>48440735>small Chinese sub pulls up to a bunch of Eskimos after the bombs drop>Kills some to instill fear but end up running the show>As they die out and time passes by they become known as godsthere you go
>>48417707HOw do they aim? VATS?
>>48417699What the fuck?
>>48439628>M231 >The parts are out there, but some of them are VERY scarceSeveral years ago I took a run at building an M231. Talked to a BUNCH of people at Knob Creek and at the SAR Show in Phoenix.Consensus was the same with a couple of guys being the gatekeepers to the parts and those guys weren't going to sell.I can only imagine that parts are harder to find now.
>>48440735>Werent the chinese fully pushed out of Alaska?Battle of Anchorage as I recall.A lone brave soul blew up those artillery pieces shelling Anchorage and managed to kill that chicom general.> I hear that crazy bastard took the general's shock sword> turns out to be a shitty weaponBut that Chinese Recon Inviso-armor, fucking amazing.
Guess its time again
>>48441047The M231 was a PFW - Port Firing Weapon.The Bradley was conceived to have firing ports out the side. The hand guard would sort of screw into the firing port and provide limited traversal.Pic related has firing ports above the 4th and 5th wheel.

>>48417699>Fallout 4gross pipe pistols are gross
>>48441465Mr. Chain Blue Lightnin hisself
I'm just gonna throw it out there that the 20ga Pulse Slug was awesome.Bricking sentry bots and paladins with the H&R Topper you found in Goodsprings just beats all.
>>48417362Why no black powder weapons in FNV?
>>48417362The m16 just isn't a wood gun. It looks wrong...
>>48441585you gonna pull those pistols or whistle dixie
>>48441630Doesn't the really good bounty hunting mod give you an 1858 conversion?I know it's a mod, but that seems tasteful and lore friendly
>>48441263Knowing how rare they are I would have asked more for the parts, but I have a deal with the buddy I traded them to. Whenever we trade, we give each other the good deal we had when we got the item. I've benefitted many times from the deal so I couldn't in good conscience sell those parts to him for a high price.
>>48441047The idea was to shoot 100% tracer rounds and walk it in to the target.
>>48441641It's comparable to wooden FALs and G3s
>>48442168The AR-15 was designed around polymers and aluminums, never intended for wood furniture.
>>48417629What is that chambered in and who makes a fsb barrel for it
>>48442339.50 Beowoo.Nobody. Gotta be a custom. Can't find a .936 FSB still
Can someone explain to a no guns how do people do that to their rifles?
>>48442495Convert it to whatever this is>>48417362
>>48442520you either take off the plasticy bits and replace them with the wood bits or put on the wood bits if there aren't any plasticy bits to begin with
>>48442520Pay $350 to some dude named Gene or some shit and just pop the delta ring
>>48442196I'd also wager it wasn't designed to have a charging handle on the side, but Fallout gunz are unique.
>>48420811>25.6lbs pipboy inventory weightwhy even live
>>48443847Nice Chinese Assault Rifle
>>48443847A2 birdcage on the muzzle?What the hell anon? Are you trying to cross the streams or something?
>>48444119It was on there already. Just bought it this afternoon, haven't had time
>>48417362Looks matter more then practicality
>>48445198Where’s that Anon building a T48 at?
>>48445209Love the old gear. Real American look to it instead of Globohomo garbage that everyone uses
>>48445213Distinctly American equipment. No NATO standard shit
>>48445221The fallout American military is also based off of the Korean era one. Literal peak.
>>48445225I don't see how these guys are inspired from the korean war
>>48445221>>48445216>>48445213Acting like the series was just a refuge for '50s nostalgia is pretty cringe
Pricing out a theoretical ranger sequoia larp shit big iron. Weird that they offer black barrels, octagonal barrels, but not black octagonal barrels, even under the custom options. Also, 10 inch or 7.5? Or custom somewhere in between?
>>48446436Just call them. If you're going to drop over 2k on something, why have it only be 80% right?
>>48446325No not the post war Enclave. The pre war military is. The anchorage battlefield is inspired in by the Korean War.
>>48446436Send them this pic and ask for a price.
>>48418220>I'd limit weapons largely to 80's-90'sPretty fuckin spot-on. The original games were made in the 90's, so 90's guns were high tech. Perfect cutoff point.I also personally think pic rail should be rare and most stuff should be weaver or ad-hoc attachment systems, or dovetail stuff. Very early red dots would also be doable, like the Elbit Falcon or the Aimpoint 2000.
>>48419899Anyone who says Honest Hearts is the worst DLC needs to be taken out behind the sauna with an axe.
>>48446717Well Todd is wrong
>>48446436According to Josh Sawyer the Hunting Revolver isn't a BFR, it's based on something a Wisconsin area builder produces.
>>48446465Yeah that was my thought, figured they must be capable of black octagonal and it's just poor web design.How effective is 45-70 out of 7.5-10 inch barrels anyway? Paul Harrell specifically mentions his 10.5" barrel BFR in 444 marlin for deer hunting and taking a deer at 120 yards, no personal experience with either round but they seem comparable.
>>48446870Yeah it’s inspiration appears to be only loosely based on it but I thought I’d mention it as Bethesda devs have specifically mentioned that. The pre war military is honestly a mix of a bunch of eras with the 40s and 50s being the most obvious. The pre war USAF flew P-80 Shooting Stars.
>>48446827Dead money is objectively the worst in every way. Gamplay is shit, map and environment is poorly done and the "message" is simplistic.Honest Hearts is the most based in every single way, only wish the story was longer and map was bigger. Tbh a New Canaan mod would be amazing. Way better than Frontier and a less likely to be full of degenerate fetish self inserts
>>48446877Yeah think it's this Bison Bull iirc
>>48446908Please stop Toddposting
>>48446936But I’m not. The pre war USAF did fly P-80s. I’m not asking you to buy Skyrim again.
>>48446914Honest Hearts isn't just the best New Vegas DLC, its the best part of any Fallout game. It was the peak of the series and I wish I could go back to before I had ever played it and play it for the first time again>pic very related
>>48446990Joshua is actually freaky, he says so many biblical like things that it makes me wonder how Obsidian ever came up with such an interesting and deep background for one of their characters. It's almost as if Jesus decided to be a game developer for a little bit and decided to work at Obsidian.
>>48446883 Very effective. More so when using heavy bullets. I cast 405gr lead pills and even at 1000 feet per second that will take out any game you come across
>>48446914Fighting words. For me it's Honest Hearts, Dead Money, Lonesome Road, the base game, and then Old World Blues. I just don't fucking like OWB, fellas. It's not fun.
>>48447052I hated Blues too. I only installed it for the radio station.Just too silly for me. None of the loot was worth it imo.Dead Money was fresh to me in that they took New Vegas and modded it into a survival horror platformer. I think it appeals to a certsin class of autists who want to comb through the entire thing to find all of the vending machine codes and chips, whereas most people sprint through to try to gtfo of there. And that BAR and Police Positive
>>48446883Yeah, it'll be a showstopper within your effective pistol range. Please post it when you get it.
>>48447159> I think it appeals to a certain class of autists Yes I play STALKER.
>>48447159>Just too silly for me.I thought so too until the ending, when Mobius made me realize that the Think Tank was actually incredibly dangerous and I had been lulled into a false sense of security by them acting like Redditors. That ending saved the DLC for me otherwise I would rank it at the bottom
>>48446908The influence from the DUDE FIFITES LMAO didn't become obvious until 3 and 4. You couldn't really tell what the US military was like pre-war in the originals aside from the opening cinematic of Fallout 1 with the troops executing a leaf that looked like WW2 propaganda . Walking through the Sierra Army Depot or Mariposa you certainly couldn't tell. The two groups with the most legitimate claim to be successors to the military are the Brotherhood of Steel and the Enclave. The Brotherhood larps as medieval knights and the Enclave is high-tech, if anything the oil rig takes a lot of inspiration from 1930's architecture. The series is at it's best when the pre-war era is left open to interpretation and when the setting takes influences from a wide variety of settings and time periods.
>>48447207>The influence from the DUDE FIFITES LMAO didn't become obvious until 3 and 4.It did exist but it wasn't played up to the extreme extent that Bethesda does it. Unironically, its my biggest complaint with Bethesda fallout games it's fucking ridiculous that culture just froze for 127 years until the bombs dropped
>>48447207Like the Khans. What a fucking cool culture they came up with.Mongols, Plains Indians, and druggie bikers.
>>48446990Honest Hearts is pretty and Graham is a good character but it's just not fun to play through
>>48447332Did you bring a .45-70?
>>48447340Last time I played it I brought This Machine and a .38 revolver.
>>48447346Gunning down Bug's Boys in the canyons with a trusty lever gun was fun as fuck
