>>48867573Does anyone have the /k/ 1911 tier list image? I'm looking to buy a 1911 in a few months. I want something that's somewhat similar to a 1911a1 and isn't very expensive (below $750 would be ideal). I've been thinking about buying an RIA 1911 since I was in high school because they're cheap and resemble 1911a1s aside from a few small differences. However, now that the stimulus checks have gone out, I have a bit more money. Are there any other makes or models of 1911 that I should be aware of?
>>48868848RIA are adequate for most needs but they have been climbing in price because they have a track record now.Tisas is the cheapest right now because it's Turkish and people are apprehensive about Turk guns because they're kind of a mixed bag.Springfield makes pretty good 1911s across the board, but a lot of people don't like to support them as a company (in which case buy a used one).Colt you're mostly paying for a rollmark, unless you buy a Series 70 or pre-70. The older ones are pretty good and desirable but also pretty expensive.Real dark horse option I'd look out for would be Norinco. The Chinese made and imported 1911s in the 80s-90s for dirt cheap, but the steel they used on the frames and slides is absolutely god tier. Fit is kinda sloppy, and a lot of the small parts aren't great but they make a good base to build off of. Occasionally you find them for sale dirt cheap, but people are getting wise and starting to ask a lot of money for them.
>>48868919>Springfield makes pretty good 1911s across the board, but a lot of people don't like to support them as a company (in which case buy a used one).I was looking at buying one, but some issues came up. They discontinued the GI version, which came with a nice case and extra mags, and only have the defend your legacy version, which comes in a cardboard box and comes with only one magazine, just like the RIA. I don't know if the defend your legacy (cringe name, but whatever) 1911 is worth the extra $100+. The sights are better, sure, but I'm curious as to whether the fit and finish is much of an improvement over the RIA GI. I'm not planning on buying Colt, guns with sketchy QC like I think the turk guns might have, or any secondhand guns like the Norinco 1911s. I'm buying this as a birthday present to myself and as my first handgun, so I'd like it to be brand new.
>>48869025Well, you can get a plastic handgun case for like $5 and 1911 magazines aren't expensive by any stretch.FnF is a bit better in my experience, but I encourage you to find a gun store that has both and see for yourself.I also encourage you to look into that whole brundlefuck where Springfield got caught supporting some Illinois gun tax law that didn't pass and backpedaled when it came out. They claim it was done by a 3rd party lobby group without their knowledge, but that's an awfully convenient out. If it doesn't bother you, feel free to buy the Springfield. They are solid guns.Ruger also makes a fairly reasonably priced stainless 1911 (SR1911), but I don't have much hands on experience with them. Ruger is generally a pretty good company.

>>48867573Is a Remington model 742 worth buying as babby's first hunting rifle?
>>48867573Why are curved triggers still the norm? Is it just tradition or are they cheaper? Flat triggers are better, right? So why don't all guns come with flat triggers?
>>48867573Help IDing this pack? It’s got aluminum buckles, no shoulder straps, is darker green than USGI OD.

Do air gun barrels get hot? Like if some how an automatic one was developed would barrel heat become an issue
>>48870475That's a good question actually. Friction makes heat but the air would be pretty cold after being released from a tank. I don't think it would.
22mag in a bolt worth it? Got a ton of the stuff. Only have experience with semi pistols
>>48870530>>48870475if anything i think it would be colder, almost like holding the trigger down on a can of compressed air makes the can freezing

>>48869366Flat triggers are a preference believe it or not. I know several people that don't care for them.
>>48872100Should also be noted lots of muskets had flat triggers so technically what we see is an evolution in design

Or>50 yardsTo be accurate at 150, suffering a greater bullet drop at 300. I also heard of people sighting in for >100 yards but I've seen no elaboration to the benefits of sighting in at 100.

More of an internet gun culture question, but why am I constantly seeing "recce" everywhere? I know the term has been around, but I feel like it has exploded suddenly. Is this just some reddit/gunstagram thing leaking into /k/? What distinguishes a recce rifle from an SPR or similar concepts?
Can anyone recommend a good ankle IFAK pouch? I've seen the cheaper ones but they don't seem to have breathable padding, or their velcro tends to shred fabric. What, in your opinion, is the best deal on those?

>>48871393They're not likely to be unbanned any time soon, so they'll probably hold or slowly go up in price.>>48871564Shim it or replace the metal clip that clamps it on.>>48872083They aren't known for reliability, but then again neither is an original 1887. Expect to do a lot of touch up polish to get it mostly running smoothly.Neat range gun. Definite crowd pleaser.>>4887062222 mag misses out on the economy of shooting 22lr. It's really good for making prairie dogs explode at ranges where 22lr won't reliably connect, although 17hmr is arguably better for that role.For general plinking, pass. Stick with 22lr.For serious mid to long range rimfire shooting it has a role because it flies a bit straighter longer, but again 17hmr can potentially do it better.You cant fire 22lr out of a 22wmr chamber.

>>48867573I got a Mini 14 that lacks the front sling swivel. What are good replacement swivels that fit a regular standard woiden stock?
>>48874956Either will do the job, but make sure to check your local laws. Many places ban ".22 caliber" for hunting, and that includes .223.
>>48867573Not biathlon: UIT/ISSF/CISM Standard Rifle.t. former standard and free rifle competitor
>>48874963what state. Most places in IN don't ask for foid unless you're on the border.
>>48867573You're looking for a target stock. Those two you pictured are kind of old school, so finding one might be a bit of a challenge. Look at Macmillan, McGee, Master Class, Elk Ridge, and Richards Microfit for similar ones. If you don't own a rifle yet, you can also see if you can find a Tikka T3 Sporter. They recently discontinued it, but there are still some out there.>>48876442>>48867613None of those are helpful to him since those terms only come up with .22 baby guns. The rifles he's pictured are chambered in full power rifle and intermediate rifle cartridges. I assume that he's looking for a similar stock to throw his bolt gun into.
Where can I find a new stock for my Savage Mark ii .22? I’ve been looking but the only listing I found is sold out

How can I teach myself combat reflexes without joining the Army or PMC? I want to dispatch threats, not stand still as they appear and approach me. Any guide books or how tos?
>>48879082honestly I think your best bet is milsim vidya (e.g. Squad game) groups with actual mil / EMS dudes and then carrying what you learn over into IRL plinking practice we read numerous army field manuals about basic shit like marksmanship and tactics and they were incorporated into our "basic training" before being able to participate in further trainings. Pretty okay.

>>48867573What's the legality of a mercy killing when some guy is trapped under a bus, cut in half by a train, or otherwise facing certain death from an accident and they're begging for someone to kill them? Would it be legal to shoot someone in that situation?

I guess try to get yourself into an increased adrenaline state and then try to choose "fight" or "flight" instead of freeze?Getting hit by a car is pretty extreme and honestly without societal gutter bumpers you'd be dead most likely maybe just accept that you're NGMI and just watch over old ppl during any happening or something and stay out of the way
>>48881080If you spent more than a hundred dollars on this, fuck you. To start, get nail polish remover and just brush it on, put down painters tape around the area. It's a 15 dollar Amazon Hi-Viz "Light Pipe" garbage retard sight so all you have to do is whack it with a hammer to the right gently to get it off of the poor firearm you just bought
>>48881841There is no legality. It's illegal. Hold their hand and pray with them until a grownup arrives.
>>48881044Cars take limbs too, citybro. Also terrorists do shit like the boston chechen. I relocated my IFAK from my leg to my beltline because there is a nonzero chance that legs could be removed in many circumstances and I'd have a few seconds of reducing consciousness and it'd be nice to at least claw at a CAT before dying instead of just looking around ineffectually for my IFAK on my disembodied leg.
>>48881935A bunch of states have legal assisted suicide, I wonder if it's limited to bags of various chemicals and IVs or if you could let someone borrow your gun for a minute.

Someone I know bought 3 1/2 inch turkey shot that wouldn't chamber in his shotgun. I traded him so clay target shot for it. It chambers in my double barrel. I'm wondering if I should be concerned about it being too much for the gun. I've never used turkey shot before.How bad does this shit kick and can I use it for home defense?
>>48884269Should be perfect for dispatching jive ass turkeys.
>>48883974rust is brown/redthats brass
>>48884269If you know your gun has 3.5 inch chambers its fine. If your assuming it has 3.5 inch chambers just cause the shell fits you are going to blow up your 3inch chambered gun.
>>48870475I don't think I've ever had a 10 pump get hot on me, but most have shrouds like the Daisy 880. I did do some pest destruction with a Crosman 760, pumping 5 times each, but nothing got hot. To give you an idea of how many targets I had, I was going after japanese beetles in mating season. There were easily 30 of them, if not more. Low power airguns probably would never get hot. IIRC pumping and firing the gun repeatedly may heat the seals up and in the most extreme cases do damage to the seals, but I doubt you could get it warm. Not sure about larger and more powerful air rifles, though.I do know that shoving air though a small hole can heat it up, so MAYBE the small valve that allows air into the barrel could get warm? That's a big maybe, and I assume in a 10 pump, probably a springer or a piston break barrel.

Is it considered in bad taste or rude to ask my LGS if they are expecting any shipments of a particular gun? If that's fine, would it be out of line to ask about getting on a call list or "pre-ordering" that gun to hopefully be first in line when it arrives?

How much of a difference are S&W K/L and N frame grips size-wise? Do they differ substantially or is it just details?I own a Model 29 with ugly rubber grips and was looking for oldschool wooden grips. I got a pair for rather cheap, but the seller didn't know what frame they were for. I just tried fitting them and they fit *mostly*, except for some fractions of an inch in some places and not being really flush with the rear grip. Am I supposed to actually fit them or should they be standardized? Did they change the grip shape over time? It's a 29-2 from 1969 with a square butt (the grips are square butt too, of course).

Looking for recommendations on an optic. Just bought an FN 15 and I want something decent without breaking the bank. I'm leaning towards an aimpoint pro but I'm open for suggestions.

How long do Form 1s usually take for SBSs?? I’ve been itching to buy a cheap double barrel and make it a sawed off and the only other NFA item I have is a .22 can
>>48887417wear bug spray deet is extremely effective and not poison to people
>>48886280Define "without breaking the bank">>48885626Any way to show pics? By fractions of an inch, do you mean a tiny little lip or gap that you can just barely feel with your finger, or is it visually noticeable at first glance? Depending on where the grip came from/who made it, there could be some slop/variance in the grip compared to a higher-quality manufacturer. Everything I'm seeing on the internet is saying that K/L and N are not interchangeable, so I'd wager if they were for a completely different frame, they either would be noticeably small, or be noticeably large enough to have a lot of play in them. If they're really close enough, and fit nice and tight, you can certainly try sanding down the misaligned areas and re-finishing them.
>>48885302Neither would be out of line. Doubt you could pre-order/have one saved for you, but I'd be surprised if they wouldn't at least take your name and number to call you whenever they get what you want in stock so you can come in ASAP and hopefully get it before it's gone.>>48886312This too, but realize that they get their stuff from distributors that, right now, depending what you're looking for, may also be OOS/backordered as well and the LGS may just tell you that they'll get it when they get it.
>>48887554I hate bug spray its such a hassle. Any recommended brand?
UIT/ISU style stock. I have one on my Walther KK300 .22lr target rifle.
>>48870622Why bother with .22 Magnum when .22LR is cheaper and .22 is better in terms of performance (and can be reloaded).
>>48887569Here are pictures. I read that you can fit N grips on K/L frames, with some sanding etc., but not how it is the other way.Here you can see on the left how the back of the grip doesn't really fit the ridge of the frame and on the right you can see that one half of the grip (which seems to be mismatched) seems to be stuck on the spring screw head. Also, everything is really tight towards the trigger guard.Fitting just the halves I can see that they almost, but just almost match. At least the spring screw thing could be done with some careful whittling, it's really just a sliver. And if was only that I wouldn't even mind, but the misaligned back/frame is what really ticked me off.
>>48887654Buy 100% DEET, brand doesn’t really matter. Spray it in your hands and then rub it on exposed skin. Spray it on your clothes as well. DEET works on most mosquito species for one reason or another (it is a matter of some scientific inquiry why exactly), and they will often still land on you, but will not bite. Besides living somewhere with small mosquito populations, bug spray or mosquito netting clothes are your only solutions.
>>48887799Might be K frame grips then. I was trying to find anything with actual measurements but couldn't really drum any up to see just how different the inner frames are between sizes. Like you said, if it was just a matter of trimming out a notch for the screw, and/or sanding down the grips if they stuck past the backstrap a little instead of being undersized, that would be one thing, but with the backstrap sticking out like that, even if you cut out the notch for the screw, that might end up being uncomfortable to shoot, especially as a .44 mag.
>>48887875Well fuck, that's what I was afraid of. Maybe someone else might see this later and confirm.Eh, if they're really not N frame, I can at least sell them off without loss.Thanks anyway.
>>48887897Yeah if you got them cheap you should at least be able to recoup your original money, if not a little more. Maybe try /hg/ too, I know the majority of contributors are all about the boutique foreign autoloaders as much as general modern handguns, but I think there's a silent but dedicated revolver crowd that lurks in there too from time to time.
>>48887925Thanks for the hint. I was also hoping for a revolver general.
>>48885302Most gun stores have no idea what they're going to get, at least beyond the next shipment or two. They get what the distributor can give them, because it all sells.In normal times you can special order something, but these are not normal times. If you have a good relationship with the folks at the shop, you can ask them to put one aside or call you or something, but you had better be ready to show up that day and pick it up.
>>48887654>>48887870DEET over 50% doesn't make it any more effective for "right now", but it does make it last longer. So if you're going to be out and about all day, yeah, go with 100%. If you're just going to be out for a few hours in the evening 50% might work and is usually cheaper.It works like a fucking champ though, I used to hike all over the PNW in the summer and get destroyed by mosquitos unless I lubed up at the trailhead. Of note is that it'll fuck up plastic, so if you're walking around with one of those stupid Casio watches /k/ loves it might wreck the look of the band.It's also poisonous as shit to dogs, so don't spray it on them or pet your pup if you've recently applied it. Putting it on and hiking innawoods next to them won't hurt anything though.

>>48887480did a suppressor a few months ago.30 days on the money.
>>48888334yea, that is correctin my experience i’d rather be smellier with deet and then end up going inside earlier than i had planned than have to reapply deet because i’m innawoods longer you are correct though, about how deet operates. i still recommend 100% deet
What the FUCK is "223 Wylde"
>>488886885.56 NATO and .223 Remington are different in chamber size specification, resulting in the fact that a .223 Remington chamber is, strictly speaking, unsafe for firing 5.56 ammo since it may exceed the rated pressure. .223 Wylde alleviates this with a clever bit of geometry (mainly the leade), meaning you can safely fire both .223 Remington and 5.56 NATO from it.

>>48888783You also get slightly better performance out of a 223 Wylde barrel than you would out of either of the specific barrels. Very slight, just a few fps, but it's not zero.
>>48888688it's a way for fags to gain negligible amounts of accuracy, in order to have a special snowflake chamber and make it harder for reloaders. 223w users are gay af, just use a 556 chamber, it can safely shoot both.
>>48888398I've never had a reason to hike with a rifle, but carrying a radio and a pistol when hiking is basic safety, like carrying a first aid kit and water. Depending what part of the country you're in, cougars, bears, and other shit can be a real concern.
>>48888809any of ALG's bio-lubes are pretty good, they make a couple of different viscosities. ballistol is non-toxic too but it doesnt have as much staying power and it's more vulnerable to heat. I use ballistol when I want to be lazy and spray a gun down. I use ALG when im lubricating critical components. I use CLP if im worried about rust, but it's toxic.
>>48888375Pack is fine>>48888398NoKindaDon't do it unless you are on private land (with permission) or out in a very remote area where you aren't likely to encounter another person. You can also use the cover of varmint hunting if someone asks, if that applies where you live.>>48873911I have one from The Tactical Medic, its just straight nylon and velcro but its designed pretty well and I've worn it through 3 ~90 degree summers now with no real complaint. I did have to replace the main hook velcro after 2 years of daily wear, but its a pretty easy if you have a utility knife and understand the basic concept of sewing.
>>48888783>>48888825Damn, people just be buying any gimmick shit these days
>>48874499>possibly home defenseThe 9mm carbine is the only one on this list you should even consider trying to shoot a person with. I'd avoid 3D printing unless you have no other option, best case scenario you have a gun that is way less durable than an actual factory produced gun. The 45LC revolver might be a fun range toy or maybe for hunting, but it is going to be a far less effective HD gun. The LelKek is an alright thing in concept but 5.7 is hard to find and expensive in non-panic times and keltec has a long history of unreliable first gen guns.
>>48888825>just use a 556 chamber, it can safely shoot both.Or just use a 223w chamber, it can safely shoot both and gets you slightly more performance and accuracy.
>>48888885It's not just any gimmick, it's practically industry standard by now and costs nothing extra over a .223 Rem or 5.56 chamber. The only thing really different is the lead, which means you can also fire very heavy (70+ grain) bullets out of the rifle without running into jam.>>48888825.223 Wylde chambers are 5.56 with a bigger lead, which allows for every single kind of projectile to be loaded safely. I don't see any reason why you wouldn't want one.
>>48867573why (starting before WW2 even) some USAAF/USAF planes painted and some bare metal?Seems this happens for all types: bombers, fighters, jet bombers and fighters, subsonic, supersonic, in combat, hanger queens, etc, but also some IIRC always painted like F-4 or B-52.What is reason or WTF is going through minds to full paint or just markings?Navy planes always seem full paint job so maybe its corrosive environment?Seems only USAAF/USAF ran lots of bare metal. Is that because we cool? Type of aluminum?
>>48889069>I don't see any reason why you wouldn't want one.But what if you're a boomer who hates anything invented after WW2?
>>48889101Why would I be bothering with a varmint cartridge then? Hell, my .22-06 is a much better varminter than that Remshit garbage.

>>48889092All air force aircraft are painted grey, I don't think there are any unpainted aircraft serving today. Picrel, an unpainted f-15
Looking to get a cheap .22 rifle or 20GA for rabbit hunting/skeet shooting. Where would I start looking? What can I expect to pay? Located in ohio if it matters.
>>48889092Completely unpainted aircraft died out from the 50's to 60's, likely in large part to composites starting make it into aircraft construction more than aluminum, and probably a bit more due to sweeping military regulations, where previously individual squadrons probably had a lot more leeway in what they did. Truthfully I never really thought about why some warbirds kept polished aluminum and some got camo/OD paint jobs; especially in WW2 where radar wasn't widespread yet and visual ID was the primary method of target acquisition, you'd think camo would be preferred in some form.Thinking about it now, I'm remembering that lots of low-level attackers seemed to always be painted, whereas higher-altitude interceptors and bombers may tend more towards unpainted polished; I guess if you're more likely to be spotted from above, paint/camo is a lot more helpful, whereas against the sky a polished/unpainted scheme probably isn't too much worse from a gray/blue camo/paint to make it worthwhile to slap the paint on.
>>48889341Just check around LGSes for old used ones. There are tons of both usually sitting around any place that sells uses guns, typically for around $70-100.You can also browse local gun forums and maybe Armslist (if it's not total cancer and people are posting phone numbers). See if there's something available where you can meet a seller.I'm picking up a used H&R Topper 20ga for $150 today as a matter of fact.>>48883974That's just brass transferring from the cases to the bolt face. Totally normal.>>48881841Would probably be treated as assisted suicide, or second degree murder.
>>48889376I'm thinking Squad commanders didn't get much if any input on how their planes were built.Maybe it was more about camo when parked on the ground, but I guess if you camo the top you might as well try to do the bottom.Seems random for both war and high-end peacetime production so its not due to rush production or shortages.I don't recall seeing any mixed paint/bare herds of USAAF bomber groups, but B-17,24 came in both paint and bare and would IIRC always fly among like types no doubt due to performance diffs.
>>48889297that greenish yellow might be zinc based primer.
>>48888825please ignore this genuine retard 223 wylde is BETTER for reloaders because you can use either 223 or 5.56 brass with pretty much whatever projectile you want, and it’s more accurate, and the gas seal is better >>48888885

Recommendations for a railed or mlok forend for a Saiga 12
>>48884986>/k/ - medical adviceYou should have been in the thread where I advised an anon on how to get a .22lr round out of his urethra. Dude had it wedged about 3 inches in, primer first. He posted pics of the x-ray the ER took, then the thread got deleted. Good times.
I just bought a PVS-14. Helmet and mounting pieces are on the way for a head mount. I just received the weapons mount and I was playing with that. I know it’s much better head mounted but I’m just trying this for now. Might be a dumb question but does the PVS – 14 go in front of or behind the red dot? I’m using a vortex spark 2 which is rated for night vision. I mounted it in front and it works, just has a terribly small field of view. While researching most people mention it being behind the optic, so which one is correct?
Need a scope/dot for new 22lr bolt-action but I'm having trouble finding scopes that have the right paralax. Any recommendations for something that won't eat my wallet?

>>48867573The back sights on this thing keeps sliding from side to side. Is it broken or was it meant to do this? How do it make it stay centered?Also, the slide safety is a little harder to disengage than it is to engage. Is that normal? Would it be safe enough to carry this with safety off since it's a double action trigger?Lastly, will dry firing break the trigger? It's 9x18 and I'm not sure where to find snap caps for it. Will .380 or 9x19 snap caps work?It's a FEG PA-63 just to be clear.
>>48896406>Rear sight.Shim.Cut a really small piece out of an aluminum can, place it between the front or back surface of the rear sight and the cutout in the slide, press it back in with a sight pusher.>Safety engages/disengages with different pressure.If it's a small difference I wouldn't worry about it. If it's significant it could be a sign that something is broken and binding up. Check and see if holding it upside down or sideways while manipulating it changes anything. Give it a few shakes and try again. If it remains the same probably nothing.>Safe to carry DA.Probably.>Will dry firing damage it?Probably not since it's centerfire. If in doubt use snap caps. They are designed specifically for that task.Use 9x18 snap caps.Also since it is a PA-63 in 9x18 be aware that the frame design isn't quite durable enough and they do wear/warp/crack over time. Don't expect to get a huge round counts out of it.>>48895325Regular cross stitched leather police belts are great.>>48895086Behind the optic.>>48893527There isn't a fixed number, but doing it a lot can set the bullet back into the case over time. That's why carry ammo is crimped on the outside around where the base of the bullet is.Use carry ammunition with crimping and it generally won't get setback.>>48893511Probably. Could be a lot of reasons, such as you having a common name with a felon and they have to verify that you are a different person.>>48892398Ruger PC9 is hard to beat in terms of price, quality and features. And it uses Glock magazines, but has a modular magazine well so it could be swapped for SR9 mags. I don't know if any other modules exist yet.

Why would the cops loiter around my house like that,but ignore the alarm? I love in the quiet suburban hellscape so there's no reason why the police would be here especially on foot. The alarm was apparently just from the sun shining in through the window or some nonsense. I'm going to the range now anyway, but I feel very uneasy.
>>48892827Sounds like some sort of combat ideation. I don't know where it comes from other than maybe your subconscious trying to prepare you for something that it believes is within the realm of possibilities. I think it would be pretty normal to imagine yourself in a combat situation and think about what you would do if X happened, but the impending sense of danger is a bit odd if you aren't on the run from the law or gangs.I have suicide ideation sometimes, and other times I imagine getting tortured or beat by someone while I am tied up. Pretty sure that is a self-esteem thing though, so not sure if it is similar to your situation.
Is there anything noticeable here that would cause a FTF? Build is a 8.5” 300blk pistol from PSA. Upper was purchased complete. Also what is that brown colored shit on my feed ramps?29 rounds through this build btw; had a FTF on my 3rd round and then it fed the rest fine. It was a gen1 Okay Surefeed during the malf
>>48895232He though it would make for a better fap session. Something about building up back pressure and explosive release. Then things just got out of hand, as it were.
why do EOTechs have a glass pane when it's not necessary to have one? Does it serve a purpose?
Are Perst lasers offset enough to work with an AR FSB when mounted on top rail? I only ever see them mounted to an AK or an AR without a fixed front
>>48897905That's rust I think. It could be rust causing your issues but it's probably shitty mags. try a pmag.
Why aren't there more break action revolvers out there?
>>48898907Having the break means that the frame is weaker. Weaker frames means that it will be heavier for a given caliber than a solid frame revolver. Also, it takes the same amount of time to load a break action as it does to load a swing-out cylinder design.
>>48898003Protects the internal components and enviromentally seals the unit while being infinitely more optically clear and scratch resistant than plastic at the cost of being slightly less shatter resistant.
>>48899050>Having the break means that the frame is weaker. Weaker frames means that it will be heavier for a given caliber than a solid frame revolverThat's about what I figured, thanks for putting my curiosity as ease
>>48897905Thats rust and that's what you get for buying a part made with poor materials and shitty finishes from poverty state arms. Rust on the feed ramps will cause drag that made prevent the rifle from feeding properly. Lol at your poorfag life. Clean the chamber and reed ramps of rust and LIGHTLY oil to prevent further corrosion.>300 blackoutLol, retard.
>>48867573Thoughts on the Marlin Model 60? I'm considering it for my first rifle. I'm a Bong, so no AR or AK.
>>48887417Smoking tobacco keeps bugs away.
>>48899215marlin model 60 and marlin model 795/papoose are good. very cheao too compared to other guns.
>>48899215can you guys own lever guns? the henry lever 22s are good too.
>>48899248Yes, but they're a little more dear. >>48899240>>48899248Cheers lads
>>48899240I don't know about newer ones, but the platform is a staple in the american market and has been for a long time. supposedly some people claim that newer ones aren't built to the same quality as older ones, but they say that about anything so who knows. Either way, people that have some QC issues usually just file down any burs to smooth it out.
>>48899169Heh. It's my first build/first ar platform. Being inexperienced I didn't want to spend gucci money on something that was shilled here/hyped. I figured that after being around the hobby long enough I would learn which expensive brands are actually worth the money. Otherwise I would just be taking the word of some retard who wants to justify spending 3 grand to LARP.Also what is wrong with 300 blk? My understanding was that the round was more effective at shorter ranges. Trust me, I am probably wrong, but I am trying to learn. >>48898597Anything you recommend to clean the rust? I guess I left too much oil on the BCG and let it sit for a week?
>>48899327rust can form on any gun of any price. you need to clean it off and prevent it with proper maintenance. Nothing wrong with 300 blackout, people just hate it because it's different. It IS better from a shorter barrel, and still good from a long one. It's basically ak 7.62x39 but with more ammo options.
I have a reproduction LeMat revolver in .44 cal. How difficult would it be to convert a cylinder to use a modern cartridge? I hear a common concern is over the smoothbore shotgun barrel length and NFA, but couldn't the cylinder theoretically be converted while leaving the grapeshot barrel alone?
>>48896883Ok, I've just got around to trying it, but the piece of cam doesn't fit. There's not really much of a gap for it. Yet somehow it's loose enough to be able to slide back and forth, and yet not enough to be dislodged one way or the other, or by the top. Is this meant to happen?I'm thinking I'll just try to sell it to some /k/ommando over on /bst/ who might have a better idea of what to do, or just doesn't care about it. I haven't really decided yet.
>>48895325I have a Blue Alpha, a Wilderness, and a Kore. I think I like the Kore best.
Do high velocity bottle necked calibers like 5.7 eliminate the advantage of SBRs in CQB scenarios. SMGs only fell out of favour due to body armour and weapons like the mp7 and p90 solve that problem through volume of fire and ammunition.
>>48899327Oil would prevent rust. Clean it off by scrubbing with a brass brush. Prevent it with proper oiling. .300 blackout is a meme round for people obsessed with having a larger caliber. It essentially replicates 7.62x39. So it has poorer external balistics in exchange for marginal terminal ballistic gain. Also reduces capacity and adds recoil. Its the rifle equivalent of .40S&W
>>48899215I main a marlin camp 9 for home defense. Way ahead of its time.
>>48899883You are mostly correct, however, since it uses trimmed necked up 5.56 brass, it does not lower capacity.
>>488997815.7mm NATO and 4.6 only make sense in very compact machine pistols. Your history on SMGs is wrong. They fell out of favor because rifle carbines became SMG sized and a rifle cartridge will outperform a pistol cartridge in every way. Anything smg sized will be compared to a compact carbine chambered in a rifle round that will blow it out of the water. So no, 5.7 and 4.6 did not make SMGs relevant again.
Any red dot mounting options for Kahrs? Specifically pm9s. I'm looking for an option that doesn't include getting the slide milled.
>>48900001>very compact machine pistolsDoes the new P50 fit this category?
Actually retarded question, but first time builder hereIf I know my stripped lower has been delivered to an ffl, do I need to wait for a notification from them or can I just go pick it up?Thanks for dealing with that nonsense
>>48901637They may not have processed it yet. Give them a call and see if you can pick it up.
>>48901679>>48901701Thanks, will do y'all
>>48901637Wait like 2-3 days, if you haven't heard from them give them a call and ask them when it'll be ready for pickup. Some tards on here watch the tracking numbers and bitch that things show up at the FFL and they don't get a call half an hour later as if there wasn't more for the FFL to do than just get it out of the mailbox.You're not a tard, right anon?
>>48899883I cleaned it and it looks like it wasn't rust but copper from the bullets tips..300 blackout seems better at close range and I plan on owning more than just this tiny home/truck gun. I bet I won't aim the weapon at anything farther than 50 yards away, ever.In this use case, why wouldn't I want .300 blackout?
>>48899883wrong on the capacity and wrong on the recoil. try again. It give the AR platform something similar to 7.62x39 MINUS the need for a beefier bolt.
>>48901910fragmenting 5.56>>>>expanding .300fagoutOnly point of .300 is so you can have a useful subsonic bullet. If you aren't putting a suppressor on then there's no point other than having a snowflake cartridge. That's fine, just don't think you're getting anything better by paying 60% more per round.>truck gunlol retard
>>48902169I may suppress it down the road sure.Are you suggesting the .300 blackout round offers no advantage over .556 at close range?
>>48902430Mind you, I'm no .300 blackout fanboy; I have no emotional attachment to a cartridge lmfao
>>48899547>>48896883Nevermind, had the gunsmiths at the LGS look at it and they fixed it for no charge.
>>48902416It's nothing special but it will do the job. If it's cheap it's fine but I wouldn't spend big money on it. 30-06 is the most common but there are several short action cartridges like .243, .308, etc. It can be a little ammo sensitive, the low grain or reduced recoil loads won't cycle it and the heavy grain long-range stuff will beat the shit out of it so stick to middling hunting rounds from the usual suspects like federal, hornady, and such.
What is the purpose of the mesh barrier you see in this M2 machine gun picture? I get why the barrier hole is there so it ensures the barrel is always pointing down range but why the obscuring "mesh" part?
>>48901788>>You're not a tard right anon?No but I doubt myself sometimes. Thanks for the clarification
>>48889341semi-auto? bolt action?if all you're looking for is a .22 I can guarantee theres probably 100 of them sitting in your area because somebody bought it and realized bolt action is shit for SD
>>48902430I wouldn't take advice from that retard
>>48892827Do you live around black people like I do? Because I have this exact scenario constantly, to the point I that I take my CCW with me between the bathroom, bedroom. and kitchen
>>48902853Probably to stop retards from shooting over the hole that's matched to the height backstop. The mesh is so you can see through it.
>>48902853Somewhere on /k/ there is a brassjew cooming to that image.
>>48899267>out of stock
>>48903074Bruh where you been? Everything is out of stock, it says ETA July, sign up for notifications or go on AR15.com EE/Gunjoker
I'm sorry if this was asked before, but can anyone identify this gun? I've just seen the video and got curious.
>>48903300Looks like a KSG to me
>>48887417Shorts work well if you aren't prone to rashes or aren't walking through dense vegetation, otherwise wear lightweight pants. Never forget the bug spray. Huberd's shoe grease (Mainly the pine tar and beeswax it is made of) works great if you don't like globohomo chemicals.
Would a .45 Colt revolver be beefy enough to serve as an innawoods wildlife defense round? Can anyone recommend a nice revolver chambered in .45 Colt?
>>48892954Its a complete non-issue. The upper alone will be 26" if you have a 16" barrel, and if you have a barrel shorter than that, the 26" rule doesn't apply.
>>48903404Depends on how its loaded. As long as you aren't running cowboy action ultra low recoil rounds you should probably be okay for cougars and stuff like that. Most .45 colt is a little hotter than standard .45 ACP, but it has the potential to be a lot weaker or a lot more powerful.
>>48903404>>48903505And Ruger Blackhawk or Vaquero, although I'd go with .357 becuase you can also shoot .38 and have a wider selection of defensive ammo.
>>48903064>The mesh is so you can see through it.Then why not remove the mesh and just keep the metal hole? All the mesh does is obstruct what you're shooting at.
>>48903416Wouldn't something that's DA be better as an "oh shit" innawoods gun?>>48903505Fair enough. I have some standard run of the mill ammo that I bought for my lever action, and I'd be sure to avoid any specialized low power rounds like that in my revolver when going out.>>48903531I already have a lever action in .45 Colt so I thought it would be nice to be able to share an ammo supply. Is .357 enough of an upgrade to warrant maintaining one more pile of ammo?
>>48903541Like I said I think it's an anti-retard measure for a range. It probably stops a retard from pulling it out of hole and shooting over the berm. ROs can't be everywhere and they probably just say "BARREL IN HOLE, SHOOTY SHOOTY!"
Is there any reason to go billet over forged for an ar upper and lower?
>>48903760I'm asking whats the point of the mesh. I'm not asking whats the purpose of the hole, i get that. The mesh part (and not hole part) should be removed.
>>48904071Like I said. I assume it's an extra step of safety. If the retard pulls the gun out of the hole or recoil pushes it back, they can't set it on top of those bars or anything. People are pretty dumb, if the mesh wasn't there they might just reposition the gun over the hole and point it too far up. The set up they have makes it really hard to fuck up. If it backs out of the hole, you only have ONE place to put it back.
>>48888688My AR is technically chambered in .223 Wylde, didn't have much choice since the shop I got it from was the only decent gun shop around making MD compliant AR's. Basically it shoots both .223 rem and 5.56. I heard one of the workers claim that they do it to fuck with the lawmakers (I think that's a bullshit reason desu)
For anons who’ve recently bought NFA items, how long has your wait been? Thinking of just saying fuck it and buying like 3 all at once to cover all my calibers
Does anyone know what the X patch is from?
>>48904341Any 5.56 will shoot .223 just fine, but less accurately than out of a .223. Any .223 is not technically safe to shoot out of a 5.56.A .223w is safe to shoot either, and is more accurate for .223 than out of a 5.56. Best of all worlds for literally no downside
>>48867573Why aren't Skeet/other EFP submunitions being mounted on drones? They come with the smart bits and I don't think the computer behind it is beyond smartphone weight, and the submunition itself is under 8 lbs. https://armamentresearch.com/us-cbu-97cbu-105-sensor-fuzed-weapon-cluster-munition/
>>48906416Just get a black rectangle and a white sharpie.
>>48903607If you already have a stock then go for ammo commonalty, something chambered in .357 is just a bit more versatile. You can pretty much do the same stuff with .45C (especially out of something overbuilt like a modern Ruger) that you could with a .357, you just won't find the same selection of ammo at WalMart.
>>48904002Looks, if you like itForged is cheaper, lighter, and in some cases stronger.

how hard is it for a wrenchlet to install a delta ring on an AR 15?
>>48907784What do you mean by wrenchlet? No torque wrench or no proper pin wrench?
>>48907734Is the versatility of .45C something that requires reloading? Either way I'm sure it would be better than my 9mm
>>48908059Sorta. Maximum versatility is a .454 Casull or a 5 shot .45LC for extra cylinder thickness.
>>48900001Fair point and you're right on the real reason being rifles becoming compact. I should have phrased my question differently. I had meant more so do these small caliber high velocity cartridges make pistol caliber weapons relevant to modern military applications. I wasn't arguing that they warrant a return to rechambered MP5s and Uzis instead of assault rifles. I'm arguing that 5.7 NATO machine pistols replacing all 9x19 service pistols and PDWs (which are basically compact SMGs) makes those weapons much more relevant in the era of prolific body armour. And in all fairness an MP7 style weapon with suppressor is still going to be that much more maneuverable and compact than even a 10 inch AR with no can. And that's something the SWAT teams and "door kickers" would probably see value in
>>48907784I need a torque wrench and an armorer's tool. But if I got those, could I do it on my own despite my relative lack of experience repairing anything besides my yamaha motorcycle and other small shit around my apartment? No magazine block or vice either.
>>48907784>>48908015>>48908414sorry meant to comment to this>>48908015
>>48908414no vice will hurt you more than anything else. you could use the wrong wrench or some halfassed bullshit like vicegrips with no torquewrench and still have it ok cause ar acceptable torque is a insane range.however without a vice even if you had the right tools it would be suffering to do.
Are 26.6mm flare guns a practical purchase?
>>48907784>>48908015>>48908414>>48908607gunsmith it is then I guess, thanks
>>48908610Depends what for. The are sub caliber conversion kits that exist. There basically barrels with a diameter that chambers in the flare gun to fire different pistol and shotgun cartridges. A cheap way to get a multicaliber pistol setup. But extraction isn't usually included and iirc it wears out the flare gun over time. As a signaling device they are excellent for survival situations and ammo is cheap
is going it alone when the SHTF hits the fan ultimately an impractical and retarded venture unless you're very experienced in bushcraft and survival?
>>48908844Yes. And even if you're the aforementioned Green Beret survivalist but indefinitely sustaining yourself totally alone is dubious. The logistics of food gathering alone would be a time/energy intensive challenge once carried supplies run out. As for gun fights, beyond a certain point numbers matter more than skill. A one on five in a full on shootout is borderline suicidal even if it's against Jamal and his 4 sideways shooting homeboys.
>>48908844Absolutely fucking retarded, take a solo backpacking trip in a genuinely secluded area. With no experience, and even with it, it can be extremely easy to get straight up lost in brush and panic. Seriously.
>>48908753>As a signaling device they are excellent for survival situationsLet's say I'm lost innawoods. How much legal bullshit would I get swamped with if I shoot up a flare to signal for help?
>>48908844>>48908944Your morale will drop a lot fucking faster than you expect especially when it gets dark, literally everything looks the same and you will start to panic because your lizard brain knows when sun turn off danger need to find shelter and it is not a good feeling, not to mention whether conditions
>>48908978>whether conditionsWhether what conditions?
>>48908953Anon I...That's literally what they were built for. That's the entire purpose of an emergency kit's flare gun. So none. The one caveat to this is I believe some jurisdictions have seasonal bans on various forms of fire (including flare guns) due to drought and wildfire risks. But that's very much region specific. I doubt they'd charge you with anything in a true life or death situation though. Park rangers and game wardens are generally pretty good people in so far as feds go.
>>48909008weather conditions* I been drinking a bit.
>>48909009I get that it was a dumb question, but in CURRENT YEAR nothing would surprise me. Thanks anon
If I were to rifle a shotgun barrel, would it then be legal to saw off the barrel and stock, thereby making it a pistol? The law says it is a sawed-off shotgun because it is a smoothbore
>>48909134No. It would still be a shotgun. For reference Savage makes bolt action turkey guns that are basically just rifled shotguns and are thus still classified as shotguns
>>48886257I really want a 1911a1-style 1911, and the ruger ones are a bit too modernized for that purpose. I'm going to get a gp-100 or some other revolver with adjustable sights as well as a glock sometime down the line to fill the practical handgun niche and the target-shooting-handgun-with-nice-sights niche.
I feel like I'm losing my mind /k/I have been looking for hours trying to find a 20ga 2 3/4" 1oz HP rifled slug and I cannot, for the life of me, find anything: in stock, out of stock, discontinued, prototype, or otherwise. Do they not exist? Why are they all 3/4 oz? Will I ever find happiness?Does anyone know where I can find this kind of shell, even if it's out of stock right now?
>>48909386>Why are they all 3/4 ozshell diameterthe 1oz 20g slug you think you saw was either 12g or 20g 1oz of shot not a slug.
Has anyone here unironically tried brown brown?
>>48902416It's an ok hunting rifle. I suppose it can be used as an ersatz battle rifle in a pinch. It isn't the most accurate thing by modern standards, not a military approved battle tested design. I wouldn't expect the sort of durability, reliability, ergonomics and accuracy that a Garand or something like that would have.Also the standard magazines hold 4 shots, although I believe higher capacity aftermarket ones did exist. They are very rare, expensive and probably of questionable reliability.>>48903300Kel Tec KSG. It's the less common version with extra long barrel and magazine tubes.>>48903404For most problems the caliber is probably sufficient, but I would recommend a DA revolver and something with a swing out cylinder.If you really want 45LC you can shoot it out of a 454 Casual chambered revolver.Personally I think either 44mag/spl or 357mag/spl is more practical.>>48903607Sniff around for a 464 Casull revolver. I think Ruger Super Redhawks and Alaskan models exist in it and aren't too expensive. That gives you a very high power option with the capability of sharing ammunition with your levergun.>>48907784Pain in the ass but totally doable.>>48908610Sure. You can get sub caliber inserts for 12ga flares, pistol calibers, or fire surplus flares/smoke cartridges.How practical is that? Up to you and your imagination.>>48908844Being alone is unwise. Extra people help watch your back. Numbers count for a lot.Just make sure they aren't totally shitty/useless people.>>48909134No. Even doing that with a rifle would make it an SBR rather than a pistol. The "pistol" ARs/AKs/Mares Legs you see were all built from the ground up to be pistols.
Asked this in another thread but I figure maybe here will have an answer:Are there any Russians here who can speak regarding the culture and direction of gun ownership in Russia? Are the laws getting better or worse? Is firearms seen as a niche thing for gangsters and crazies or broadly respected as a legitimate and popular hobby?
>>48909759I haven't been there in a while, but people in general are leery about guns and gun ownership. They are associated either with gangsters or hunters. There isn't really a strong concept of firearms ownership for self-defense in the prevailing culture.In terms of firearms owners, there are a lot of enthusiasts who are interested in more tactical weapons because of practical rifle competitions. Rifled weapons take a long time to acquire, so shotguns and other smoothbore weapons are the standard choice for most people and applications.Gun laws are gradually getting more permissive, and most have very lackluster enforcement. But it's still nowhere near as easy to get a gun and use it as it is in the US. There is definitely no "right" to a firearm. Only kind of gun you can actually carry for defense is a "traumatic" untitled pistol firing rubber bullets and even that is a relatively new thing.
>>48909926>Untitled pistolUnrifled. Smoothbore pistols.They fire special rubber bullets and I believe they can't actually fire regular ammunition. Some are actually built alongside regular blowback service pistols like the Makarov PM and Fort-12 and do share most parts though, which is interesting.
>>48882038>armed courier escortwhats that like? Are you just a mailman with a gun?
>>48909926Culturally speaking it sounds exactly like here in leaf land. A lot of enthusiasts but no self defense mindset and a 50/50 chance of scaring off your average person by mentioning your hobby in any context or level of detail beyond "I go hunting"
wanna get innawoods and do stalker shit, but am Califag. I frequent Eldorado NF, but are there better places?
>>48909990El Dorado is pretty hard to beat. We do a lot of meets at Panoche Hills because it's just a convenient location, but it's also pretty good for long range shooting.
Looking for a OWB and IWB holster for my Sig P320 Xcompact, it has a Surefire X300 light and a Holosun 507 optic mounted to it, anyone know any reputable manufacturers or will I have to make a custom holster?
>>48910060Figured as much. I've always had good experiences in Eldorado unless I was being a retard. Last time I was in Mendocino Nf I encountered a pair of armed crackheads.
I noticed that I am shaking really bad with a handgun. I am not a weakling or anything, but I have had a tremor in my right hand for almost as long as I can think.Is there anything to alleviate that?
>>48892827It sounds like you just need to take a break. Stay away from stuff related to sd/hd, combat footages etc for one or two weeks. >>48897590>the impending sense of danger is a bit odd if you aren't on the run from the law or gangsOr in the situation of >>48903062 but basically this.
>>48910760Find a proper coach, I can't fix bad form over the internet. Are you shooting with both hands, or bullseye style? The latter requires a lot of training on body positioning and such, what may appear as shaking your hand is usually the entire body moving about and it compounds into the sight picture moving.
New to guns. I think that I read an infographic a year or two ago that said that you start with an AR, get a carry sized pistol, then a full size pistol. I don't remember what it said after that but I kinda remember it saying to get a .22 rifle next. Anyone know what infographic I'm talking about? Either way, it seems like a .22 rifle would be a good next step, so what's a fun one? I like the cowboy looks of a lever action but cocking it each time could get tiresome. Same thing with bolt action, so I'm guessing that semi-auto is the way to go. Suggestions?
>>48911739The only way a lever action tires you out is if you’re a weak handlet
What is the cheapest IR laser that isn’t a complete piece of shit?
how do you anons store your guns? I'm thinking of keeping my pistols in the foam cases they came with but i heard those cases can also invite rust. Plus I have a shitton of mags lying around
>>48912132In a safe/locker with a dehumidifier rod. Take them out I've got a matched pair of wingmasters with square patterned rust spots all over because I left them in a foam case for a year being gone.
>>48911739.22's are cheap, so why bother with just one? I'd start with a 10/22 because it's a semi and it's the .22 equivalent of a lego brick, but there's no reason not to start with a levergun if you want to. They're cheap to buy, and cheap to sell afterwards, so don't worry about testing one to find out.>>48912132In a safe, like a normal being.
>>48908414How do you work on your motorcycle without a torque wrench? I have one from back in the day working on cars, it's practically required for anything light since you're threading shit into aluminum all the time.
>>48908953There are generally exceptions to every law, or at least you won't get prosecuted for breaking them, if it's literally life and death. Like it may not be hunting season but if you shoot a bear trying to kill you you're probably okay.
>>48908844Watch the show Alone, it's reality TV bullshit but it's folks left in the wilderness by themselves having to find food, water, and shelter without anyone even shooting at them. Some of them start to go nuts within a day or two, and practically none of them last even a month or two.
>>48912132I literally just put them on a shelf in a spare bedroom. It's not particularly safe, but I live alone. I keep meaning to get a safe, but that's money that could be spent on more guns.
>>48912210Torque wrenches for vehicles are usually not in the range you need for tiny gun screws.
>>4891269830-200lb is a pretty standard range. Anything below 30 is hand tight and locktite if you must.
>>48912715As someone who has wrenched on their own vehicles for decades, I must warn you that it's easy to overtighten and strip things with your bare hands even if you are a wristlet. I've snapped bolts and ruined threads on 19mm bolts even.
>>48912698We're talking about a delta ring, which is 30ftlb or more, not tiny gun screws.
>>48892954Clarity: I want to build a "firearm" and don't want to do weird shit with the buffer. Just throwing on a SBA3.
If I ordered something from PSA, and my local FFL is asking for their email, can I just say "Its from PSA"? Cause I dont see anywhere on their website where they supply an email.
>>48913315Usually you'd order and punch your local FFL's info into whatever form on PSA's site and they'd handle it from there. I've never called the receiving FFL and been like "you're getting a box for me".
>>48913503Ah okay, I selected them on PSA's website from the list they supplied, so I guess they have it from there and I don't need to do anything else.Them asking for seller info must be for if you're buying from some dude on gunbroker or something.
How soon is too soon to call an LGS after shipping shows your gun delivered? I know they gotta do their own receiving shit but I'm giddy as fuck and this thing delivered three hours ago.
>>48914023Disregard, they called.
