/arg/ Tasks of the month for Jan-2023Maintenance-Optics are useful on your rifle but they only work when you respect them, part of this is cleaning them. >Do you have a lens blower? >Do you have a lens brush? >Do you have lens paper? >Do you have lens cleaner?How do you intend to carry this into the field with you? You should at this point know how your optics degrade in relation to how dirty they get. Next time your optic is filthy take the opportunity to observe assorted distances at various times throughout the day to see how much clarity you lose. Skill Sustainment-Target: 9x9” Plate or similar paperRounds: 2-4 roundsEquipment: SPRAfter confirming zero at 100yd walk back to 200yd.Action: Upon buzzer start standing @ low ready (real low ready, not wgws low ready), Drop to a knee and deliver two solid hits on the 9x9 plate and call your time. Add 1 second for each dropped shotTotal times (time+dropped penalty):>Cold 9 sec = Par>Warmed up 8 sec = par>6 and below = cooking itRecord your times and experiment with the mag level on your SPR.Improvement-If you are using a harris or similar force to overcome style bipod you can improve deployment speed with a quick mod at home.Get a 12” long piece of paracord and tie an overhand knot over itself 3 times in the center, some people like to leave a tail on longer guns. Grab one end of the line and tie it to a harris bipod leg above the release button with a suitable knot, repeat on the other leg. To deploy; pinch the knot or grasp the line that dangles between the legs when folded and yank down with a jerk motion. It will deploy both legs at once and doesn’t require you to reach across the bipod or juggle the gun when prone.

>>56901885Notice how A2 always chimes in about the NFA. And almost bends over to tell anons to sign up for the NFA.How much more of a red flag do you need. Next youre going to tell me these trips are real people and not LEO trying to bait people. (Im exercising my 1st amendment right)

>>56902038VLTOR revealed something interesting at SHOT
>>56902038Ive yet to find one, but ive also yet to have a need for something greater than RTV+flatwire+h2The SICO GDCH was cool but apparently everyone but me has had major issues with them so I guess not.
Threadly reminder to lighten up and you will live longer.
>>56902045Link? I never saw anything in any videos
>>56901990/arg/ is gay every single day.
>>56902045Based. Vltor charging handles are what made the bcm charging good thing happen. New bcm charging handles are inferior yes even the 4x4 and they cost double the price.
>>56902064I refuse, hope you understand
>>56901885In for going to the range instead of working.
Making a realiable M4 with a good barrel > ambi, weight minmaxing, billet styling, or propriatary handguards.FN is good. Time and combat proven proprietary designs like KAC or HK obviously have big advantages in material or tech over boring DI ARs.But there is nothing to shit on about FN rifles. Unless dumping x2 the cost of their guns, you arent likely to out-do them.
Is carbine or mid-length better for a 16" barrel?
>>56901925The guy has been in the industry for at least a decade.I would imagine that he would know about that kinda stuff more than some rando anon.
>>56901915A2 tasks of the month for Jan 2023>tell ya bois at ATF to stop watching true crime docs on Netflix and approve my RC2
>>56902054I'm the guy that bought the first batch and tried coiled spring pins yet it still kept coming loose. I fucking flared over the roll pins on the underside and it still walked after 100 rounds. The replacement they sent me did the same thing. It's just a faulty design and a miracle yours is still running.
does anyone have that holosun vs trijicon memethe one with the asian girl or w/e. i need it for something
>>56901951What is the cheapest acceptable stock to throw on all the formerly braced pistols that are now becoming registered SBRs just to hold over until I buy nice things for them one by one? For a nice stock later what is the actual difference between LMT and B5 SOPMOD stocks, is it just price and logo?

>>56901915Holy shit KAC made a warden with their QD system? That's so fucking cool!!
>>56902126was there even a commando length M16 variant with a fixed stock?
>>56902080Yeah yeah yeah, but nobody should ever say they belong in S tier with kac and hk etc do you see now

>>56902080So fucking stupid it hurts. Does it hurt you too when you try to use your brain?
>>56902126>car stockthanks. how about cheap but acceptable springs and buffers?
>>56902108Had both, the only real difference is the B5 sling swivel is antirotational
>>56902070I can't remember where I saw it and they don't have it on their site yet. I could be imagining it but it looked similar to the GDCH without the gay roll pins. I'll look through my jewtube history and see if I can find it>>56902072Agreed I have a VLTOR branded version and it's very nice>>56902148Lefty's BTFO lmao. You could always RTV the vent though

Where’s the best deal on braces currently? I want to troll with my SBRs.

I'm desperate.>>56902148yeah, but will it actually do what its supposed to do? probably not.>>56902328I'm here, I will be your shield."We've had a very divided /arg/ and it's only gotten worse. And the last thing our general needs is four more months of discord trannies. Believe me. I've seen firsthand the shit posts and the ukraine supporting that has taken over our board. You've seen it and I've seen it and we're all watching together. They knew they would throw every lie they could at me and my rifle and my loved ones. They knew they would stop at nothing to try to stop me. But I never knew, as bad as it would be, that it would be this vile, this bad, this vicious. Nevertheless, I take all of these slings and arrows gladly for you. I take them for our general so we can have our /arg/ back.">>56902350I'm pretty sure this violates the tos.

>>56902880hmm that may be a better idea
>>56902849I work from my bedroom and have 10 or so TQs with me, PC and helmet, 4 rifles, one pistol, flash bangs, thousands of rounds of ammo. But when I'm not at work, I have a belt and a very strong pen.
>>56902880He'd be sad if he saw his company today. Now they're a pnw hipster lifestyle brand that puts out 5 rifles a year
>>56902806Every time I see it it’s slightly different. Top tier is missing one
>>56902183>Anti rotationalIsnt that a good thing

If the headrest on the driver is gone you can probably skip first aid at that point and go to toe tags.>>56902938Man AR10 lowers suck to find. Id go for something SR25 cut so MarsH, Vseven, New Armalite, Larue, kac, etc. Innastore you likely to only find m5s.
>>56902920thats because its utter bullshit meant to incite angerthere's truly no one who would put aero and anderson on the same level, but because Aero is a nice mid-tier and anderson is notorious poor tier, its inflammatory. same with PSA and Bushmaster being on the same, or the inclusion of Sons of Liberty blah blah which approximately 0% of people have ever even heard of before the infographicbased diemaco poster tho
>>56902975>Aero is all you'll findProbably right, can't be choosy to get a free stamp. Worst case I just spend $200 again later.
>>56902975Why are AR10s suck finnicky pieces of shit while AR15s are almost always extremely reliable
>>56902968TYFYS.>>56902975I honestly and sincerely wanted to hate the 365, but after spending a couple hundred rounds' time behind one I was sold. For all its flaws, it's the only subcompact that's ever felt moderately good to me and I'm having a hard time carrying anything larger now that I've been spoiled by how easily that little fucker rides and hides in the waistline. I did see something about HK coming out with some 365/hellcat/etc. competition in the near future...could see myself biting on that bait.
>>56903060the same reason your mother gets tittyfucked by strangers behind the ace hardware dumpsters
Just built an AR out of spare parts.>16" mid-length gas tube>carbine spring / buffer kitIt's not quite cycling; acts undergassed. What is easiest fix? I don't care if it's a little over gassed.I've only got 20 rounds through it.
>>56901885Who ever the anon that said the 88 day rule was correct. Fuddbusters did a video correcting a lot of misinformation.It doesnt help that I consumed it and shit up arg with it. Its safe to efile. Now it may take a century to get you stamp. But at least you would be legally complying.Im really pissed off at GOA for spreading this misinformation. And worse it makes AFT look competent. Many are saying GOA is the new NRA. Using scare tactics to increase donations.(End of rant)
>>56903060Zero standardized patterning>>56903073I dont know man Im either carrying my 19+x300u+acro or a .357 jframe depending on my responsibilities and threat that day.P365/43x/48/Hellcat guns are still full of cope optics and cope lights Im just not in it to win with.>>56903095>Many are saying GOA is the new NRA. Using scare tactics to increase donations.see >>56901882
>>56903095That the 88 day auto reject from filing is bullshit.*
>>56903095The GOA information is from what the ATF said to people at SHOTshow. If they misspoke, they misspoke.
>>56903141Its sloppy work to roll up to dudes at show show and ask them questions, then scare people based on it.>Yeah the first guy was an idiot!>This second guy who didnt have business cards tho he clearly knew what was right and I will take this to the bank!Straight up glue eater tier shit from them and the dudes who keep feeding MAC lies
>>56903141The GOA went to the AFT deputy derector and asked a question in a manner that could be misunderstood. And thats exactly what happened.I hate to defend them but the GOA intentionally asked a question in a manner then took it out of context.>but why anonOld trick to make money from donations through fear tactics.A2 was also correct in calling BS to these claims. It makes GOA look every bit as much as grifters for the 2A.
Remember when MAC went to IMI in israel and started deleting antisemitic comments from the comment section? I remember.
>>56903115Gotta do what floats your boat. I haven't been able to get the XL to choke on any of the gold dots and HST I keep stocked, so as long as it can come out of my waistline and sling JHP where I want it to, it passes muster. I desperately wish I could have gotten good with any of the G19s I owned. I could shoot them well enough to confidently carry them, but compared to the work I can put in with the VP9 it's not even close.
>>56903162what sling is that?
>>56903095>at least you would be legally complying.fag
>>56903162>MACThat guy likes to panic about everything. I don't think they'll (the atf) be successful in their new interpretation,but it probably won't matter in the long run because banning guns isn't about safety, it's about scoring points for the blue team.
>>56902769>>56902759Immediately made me think of a fucking rats tourni

>>56903261the rats sucks at least this just looks like a scaled down down cat tourniquet.
>>56903242I have to shoot at indoor and outdoor ranges. Im not rich like these other anons.>poorfagWhen you go to the range youre at the mercy of RSOs. Some are relaxed others have that mentality where they will report you. I had that one eye balling my 14.5
>>56903073Bless you shark. Bless you.
>>56903242This mentality is the fucking dumbest shit in this thread>Telling the world you plan to not comply>Telling others to not comply with an agency that has no problem coming to your door
>>56903274Yes. He deleted 2 of my comments.
>>56903274>Remember when MAC stole all the SVDs and tried to flip themI forgot about that. Then he made some video defending his behavior.
>>56903274>Remember when MAC stole all the SVDs and tried to flip them?wait what the fuck?
>>56903336>hears about FEG bringing in SVDs>Makes video showing them off>Bribes FEG to get the entire batch of imports at like 5k per>Puts them all at gunbroker at 12k+ starting bidsSo zased
>>56903302So the bullshit tourniquets like the sof t thays only good for kids or dogs or some shit? What a dumb idea.
>>56902929Yeah lmt is retarded about not doing it. I don't know why, none of their shit is antirotational
>>56903336MAC is a big old cocksucker, why are you surprised? Dudes a scumbag
>>56903327Lol he had just made a video badmouthing as harshly as he could scalpers and shit, ultra hypocrite.
>>56903365This probably happens a lot though.
>>56903397Less likely than you'd thinkPeople were livid and spent the entire time on gunbroker bidding them up to 1 million dollars each time he would list them
>>56903274I've found thickness to be my biggest hindrance when concealing with grip length following up behind that, within reason. The regular size VP9 ends up concealing damn near as well as the G19 with holsters and clothing being equal. Did not dig the ergos/grip on the P30 or VP9 SK models much after putting a box of ammo through each unless I put the pinky stendo magazine in, in which case grip length wasn't all that different from the fullsize variant.
>>56903437Any suggestions on how you painted your rifle?
>>56903407I see random people buy Sig products and jack the price up on GB. Same with Kac products.
>>56903115>.357 jframesurely you jest
>>56903462Yeah but are those people colluding with SIG and KAC to buy out the entire supply after making hype videos about them?>>56903464s&w 360pd>>56903437>Did not dig the ergos/grip on the P30 or VP9 SK models much after putting a box of ammo through each unless I put the pinky stendo magazine in, in which case grip length wasn't all that different from the fullsize variant.And there we go, the fullsize vp9 comes along for the ride.
>>56903449Hose it down indiscriminately with the sand/tan. Go back and randomly hose down portions with the green. Use a piece of netting between the rifle and nozzle if you want the checkerboard pattern. Try your best not to go in straight lines unless you like the tigerstripe look. Don't overthink it, worst case you can either strip and retry or just start hosing down over the existing layers if you're not autistic about finish and long term durability.
>>56903486As it has been since buying it. I've beat the breaks off of that shitter, but the XL gets far more carry time these days.
>>56903486>s&w 360pdoh my god he wasn't joking
>>56903486How does one even carry this?
>>56903558>running>suit>orgySometimes semi autos just print to much anon.
>>56903577fanny pack with a trigger guard
>>56903311>richBro I'm poor as fuck, move out west
>>56903591That works for running and is great for orgy but hardly appropriate for formal wear anon.
>>56903593same, i just live in the middle of nowhere
>>56903569Jam it into waistband AIWB with 5 shots of Barnes 125gr XPDs and a spare speed strip or two. Ballistic performance is the same if not a smidge better than my G19 firing gold dot 124s +ps. In terms of accuracy, SA offhand is pretty doable on a 12x20 @ 100yd. In terms of splits at contact distance its a no factor and will dump as fast as mechanically can. It suffers in that 25yd sustained rolling fight but if im going into that realm im taking the G19. >>56903558No cap anon, no cap.>>56903591Yeah when hiking I will run that or OWB depending on trail/pack setup.
>>56903322grow a spine
>>56903449Put some twigs and grass on it then empty 6 cans onto your rifle with the nozzle right next to the gun. Oh wait nvm that’s what not to do.Really, painting is easy, pick 1-3 colors you like that blend well (tan/green/brown/grey all work fairly well), pick a base color, any patterning you want to do, and give it a go. Tape off things or areas you don’t want painted (markings, controls, grips, etc) and just give it a nice even coat with the can at an alto private distance. Don’t go overboard on it either or the paint won’t properly adhere and it turns into a goopy shitty mess and then looks awful to boot.
>>56903652Adjustable gas block or BRT tuned tube to reign in gas from Daniel Defense barrel's gaping hole? I want saker. Eventually.
>>56903761he's going to say neither
>>56902806Damn areo is poverty now?
Im painting my AR like this guys
>>56903785Only place it really fits
>>56903783Hes going to say put the rifle in the trash then I'll press a bit more then he will reveal an answer he was hesitent to give because he doesnt want to put out niche information that is easily misused or misunderstood.Trust the process.
>>56903761What makes you think the barrel is gaped?
>>56903846Focus do be bad.1/2
>>56902210>kaw valley 3.0 or 4.3Whoah
>>56903846Broked, but the bolt face looks good. Extractor is a bit worn. Almost made it to 8k rds fired.>>569024472/2
>>56903869What length barrel is it again?And whats the buffer?>>56903879Tungsten isnt a "you gotta have it" but if youre just walking around and ordering bits its nice.
>>56903883>>56903869old spec DD barrels were GOATSE'D I know because I own one.
>>56903901I have both the spikes and kaw valley tungsten powder buffers I think it shoots a little smoother with the kaw
>>56903901Didn't know it existed. Alternative to a5?
>>56903918The 416 ships with a tungsten buffer of similar construction. I think reducing bolt bounce has merit in precision guns and auto, everything else its just nice to have.
>>5690390112.5" barrel. H2 buffer. If I go up in buffer weight, I don't think that will do anything particularly helpful for use with a suppressor though.
>>56903940Do you have a tubbs flatwire? It does help slightly
I want to try a rotex IIA
>>56903938it doesnt do anything on the open stroke, only close stroke.>>56903940>That with a H2Honestly supporter of sell upper to friend.>>56903960No, you want a Rotex-X with a IIA mountIIA a shit
>>56903971I mean if you needed a heavier buffer not extended tube. I prefer a5 anyway.
r8 paintconsidering stripping and trying other techniques for more internal patterning/variation before doing any of the nice rifles
>>56903971Ahhh, I see. Could I get a rotex-x now and swap the mounts when the QD drops? Also is flash mitigation better than the 556k?
>>56903274Fuck I remember the svd thing>56903392Yeah guys on here we're putting deposits down for them if I remember correctly
>>569040064.3oz tungsten is a H2 buffer anon>>56904013>Swap mountsIn theory, IDK if B&T will sell but hopefully>Flash mitigation better than sakeras good if not better>>56904016>Yeah guys on here we're putting deposits down for them if I remember correctlyYeah big waitlist
why do you guys keep calling them AFTits ATF
>>56904013The difference is with the saker you can buy a flash hiding end cap if you find the flash unacceptable
>>56904062>>56904047>>56904013Let me clarifyIt is vastly superior to saker with flat capIt is the same if not slightly better than saker with flash hiding endcapI would not use a saker with a flat cap
>>56904047You ever get rust on the ASR threads?I had a couple spots after leaving the can on all summer, but I don't know how water got in
>>56904080Yeah, but I generally break free the threads every outing.
>>56903971If we take scrapping the rifle off the table, I'm left with>new barrel>new gas tube>adjustable gas blockWhich of these is most likely to not break/have too short a lifespan/solve problem?
>>56904047Do you use any sort of anti seize on the asr mounts or do they not carbon lock badly?
>>56904059Ass Fucking Troons
Why does /arg/ hate Q. Im lookong at trash panda.
>>56904098You shoot so much suppressed I bet your entire body is full of lead you need to check yourself that shits not healthy
>>56904074Good to know, fuck it I guess I'll wait til the SF mount rotex-x is officially brought to market. I saw it at Shot but didn't see a date unfortunately. Curse SF mount autism
>>56904047Oh I'm retarded. I also realized I have no idea how the entire system works. What does a softer or heavier spring do? What does a longer or shorter spring do? What does a longer or shorter extension do? What does a heavier or lighter buffer do?
>>56904059Autistic Facist Trannies
>>56904111They ship bad welds
>>56904114Thats why he wears the mask
Will a adjustable gas block do anything if the AR I’m using currently doesn’t have a suppressor?
>>56904111KB is a fag alcoholic
>>56904059Why dont you ask Brandon why he keeps referring to them as AFT>>56904118I own a rc2 and many mounts. So BT is making a can that will fit the SF mounts?
>>56904099New barrel best routeAdjustable block is weight, complexity and cost for something you will likely seize in the position you needBRT tube not my favorite because of the tubes ive broken/worn out and worries about supplychain on that.>>56904100No antiseize. Just put them on cold and break them free cold every 1k.>>56904111Kevin is basedQ products not so based>>56904114I shoot mostly tuned piston gun outdoors, wear a skimask and de-lead religiously after tossing range clothes in the washer with delead soap. My levels are fine.>>56904118The A2 mount just unscrews for a while and eventually it comes off the can body. I see no reason why the SF mount isnt going to be assembled the same way.>>56904135Let you make it less reliable
>>56904135Its really only useful in fine tuning ARs with suppressors. It allows bleeding off excess gas so theres no need to change anything on the rifle itself.
>>56904149I know you no likey GArmament. But they sell anti seize gel.
>>56904111Q guns are just simply overpriced for what they areAs for the cans....
>>56904149]When the BRTs broke did they just overgas the gun again or have you had any actual serious failures?
>>56903909*only mk18 ones, because crane specDdanon should be useful and fucking ask in the breakroom if theyve ever changed their shit up on them holes
>>56904176New DD after 2018 barrels are not over gassed. Excluding mk18s for obvious reasons
>>56904176No, DD used to overgas a lot of their guns a few years ago. They've reduced gas port sizes recently like in the past 2-3 years.
Yo fucking centurion uppers are a tighter thermal fit than bcm gat damn
>>56904219That sucks to hear. BCM are tight
>>56904149BRT 12.5" a good way to go?>11.5"Sir that is a $350 handguard of perfect length for a can...
>>56904149Just wear the mask
That ETQ thing sold out in less than an hour.Whoever is making them is really under manufacturing them
>>56904219All the ones zev makes are too. Their anodizing is thick too.
>>56904257They do that on purpose. Hypebeast drops ensure they are never left holding on to inventory.
>>56904124>Your AR sits in battery and you set off the round>Barrel pressurizes for a moment as bullet effectively plugs one end, bullet wants to leave so it pushes the bullet out>Meanwhile the bolt is taking pressure via gas key and starting to unlock by twisting>Bolt unlocks and tries to come backwardsNow heres where we start looking into springs, buffers and weights. Your buffer system doesnt hold the gun in battery but rather helps reduce the speed of the BCG coming back.Going to speak in generalities here but;On the unlock:>Longer = More stroke time = input energy spread over longer amount of time>Heavier = More energy required to move it same distance = trading speed for mass>Lighter = less energy required to move it same distance = trading mass for speed>>56904168>Buying suppressor specific antiseizeTop stop>>56904171I have broken gas tubes, never broken or used a BRT tube.>>56904231>>56904246Believe the science>>56904229 Hodge since you drinking dumbass juice
>>56904258Why does /arg/ hate zev again? I like their stripped lowers
>>56904276>More stroke timeWhy is this a good or a bad thing?Also what are the other effects of increasing buffer mass? So it slows down rearward movement but what bout the rebound? I know a heavier buffer will prevent excess bolt velocity and reduce carrier bounce.
>>56902997You’re right anon. I just find it funny because the original one I remember seeing actually made sense for the most part and had Diemaco at the top alongside LWRC, KAC and HK. >>56904170Isn’t a blue weld on a Titanium part really bad?
>>56904279I don't hate zev at all. They make everything for themselves, mega, solgw, hodge, and for a bunch of fn models. I think they make the best forged lowers and uppers you could possibly buy.
>one (1) full calendar year since they were announced>still no RIS III uppers or individual rails anywhere to be found woah so this is the power of DD manufacturing... Impressive
>>56904333Uhhh, theyve been on sale idiot. Just stupid expensive for a bare fucking handguard.
>>56904333the rail is held in place by screws which is attached to a plate held in place by the barrel nut. Whoah such innovation!
>>56904008Add a bit more contrast so it doesn't show up as a rifle shaped blob at a distance
>>56904145>I own a rc2 and many mounts. So BT is making a can that will fit the SF mounts?Yes, they originally created the collar system used on the rc2. You can actually order the RBP b&t can off silencershop that works with SF mounts as we speak but it is a thicc ass can at 22oz
>>56904359man what if you put your gun down to take a pic and turned around and couldnt find it because your camo was so good?
>>56904359What vinyl did you use on that?
>>56904379>he doesnt put airtags in all his riflesNgmi
>>56904308>Why is this a good or a bad thing?Pros:"Feels lighter" because you are spreading that energy over timeCons:"Feels slower" because you are spreading that energy over timeSome people will argue that its no good because they think they will outrun it, other people will argue that it will decrease shot to shot recovery time.I only use them to slow the ROF in full auto overgassed guns>Also what are the other effects of increasing buffer mass?Requires more energy to complete a full distance worth of cycle which means undergassed guns can short stroke.>ReboundGenerally the same rules apply. I.e too heavy of a spring can cause a short stroke, too light of a spring can cause bad recoil impulse, etc.
>>56901934what's your take on the whole thing on the FAQ?
>>56904276Alas, 2019 skeleton was hitting that juice hard. Appreciate it.
>>56904414See last thread
>>56904398The solid white on the optic/mawl is just 3m matte white.Rest of it is rattle can+sponges

>>56904429I think I'll grab some for a temporary solution. Only 2 or 3 more months of snow here at best
>>56904452Just mcnett it
>>56904460There are some spots that don't lend well to it. I have some scrim plans I'm working on too but it needs work
>>56904008I don't hate it but it is missing something
>>56904428Went back and looked, you may have to spoonfeed me. I'm taking it that you are implying that you're saying that somebody who wrote the FAQ incorrectly interpreted the law and just put up some bullshit on the site? I've never sat down and read the actual National Firearms Act, maybe I should try to sit back and give myself a migrane one night?
>>56904365Why are we discussing this then? Is their some benefit to B&T
ACOG has good glass. FOV is so wide even though it's a 4x instead of 5x it looks better. Lots of light transmission and actually daylight bright reticle. Would recommend over PA prism if you can spare the cash.
>>56904408>ReboundSo i assume the heavier buffer will also be moving more slowly forward and will have more inertia. Spreading energy over a longer time seems to be a good idea in general and is similar to the surefire enhanced bolt concept I think. Thanks for all the help btw. I wonder what the reliability difference is between a5 and carbine receiver extensions.
>>56904414Gookfoot. Have you filed for your free stamp? If so, do you have an update. Did they ever require a pic of the brace attached?
>>56904584Yeah it's a mess but it's my mess I made so I'm happy
Has anyone seen a single person on the internet post about getting their free stamp approved?
>>56904460People are saying they AFT changed their ruling. Only you or those on your trust can use a NFA item
>>56904616Thats what I have tried to ask. But I think its impossible given other people were already in line with Form1s being submitted.
>>56904562No adjustable diopter though so looks embarrassingly like shit for a prism. Then again its fucking old technology so cant fault it too much.
>>56904640Every optic has ups and downs. I wanted a prism with a red dot since it's easier for me to move my head an inch than take my hand off entirely to adjust magnification or flip a magnifier to the side. Obviously eye relief and no diopter are downsides but I think the upsides justify it. For being 35 years old it still works pretty great.
>>56904359that's a good suggestion, thanks. I did a base layer of od and put everything else very lightly over it because I wanted to minimize extreme contrast and get good blending, but I think it went too far and yeah, it results in blobbing together at distanceif I can't improve contrast by touching it up I'll probably use a khaki base layer>>56904479yeah, same, basically why I asked. Beyond contrast, I may also fuck with the mesh bag thing to see if that adds the missing ingredient. Appreciate the input>>56904562cog man good
idc how important pistolfags think they are. You knew what you were doing, ATF knew what you were doing, everyone knew what you were doing. Finally everyone being honest about it. Back of the line
>>56904810your video doesn't work
>>56901915Am I a chode if I get a black scar vs an fde scar? I would rattle-can the black, but still...
>>56904176gas ports in the 10.3, 11.5, and 12.5 barrels are about .07, the 14.5 carbine is about .068, and the 14.5, 16, and 18 midlength are all around .065 or so. there are variations based on drill bit wear and such, but those are the averages. only the short barrel ones are still gaped because they're crane spec>>56904333demand is high enough that we can't afford to sell standalone uppers or rails without cutting into rifle sales at the moment
>>56904876>What color should I paint my gun uwuw teeheeno one cares. it's more important that you actually train with it.
>>56904901Normally your right but the scar is the exception. Black scars look retarded and are a detriment to group moral
>>56904624See last thread>>56904512It has never ever been the case, they havent put it anywhere but the FAQ that its changing. So based on that im going to say someone wrote the FAQ wrong. Every "gun rights" grifter is scrambling to get their name out there with a new "did you hear about x" shitpost each day. Just ignore braces like you have been and you will be fine.>>56904566>So i assume the heavier buffer will also be moving more slowly forward and will have more inertia. Generally this is the case unless you also touch spring>Reliability differencenone>>56904876Tan more accurate
Making a video and review for every single new optic or gun that comes out is much faster than releases and the only way to keep viewer counts climbing is to make more clickbaits until you taste the forbidden fruit of sponsorship money and sell out and eventually your comfy channel of talking about guns is you saying every other day the ATF is coming to ass rape and vaccinate you and talking more about your advertisers than guns themselves

How do I cope with the fact that my brass deflector is squeaky clean even after 4-5k rounds? My bolt looks like shit but my brass deflector barely has a tiny mark on it.
Recommend me a small gun safe/box for my AR and glock Something like a pelican but won't trap moisture in it
Not a rifle post but uh...I bought a Canik Rival on a whim and not only is it a better performing pistol than any of my gen 5 Glocks--it is a significantly better value than any of them. $ 630+tax and it includes a whole kit including a holster. I'm gonna run the pistol in some USPSA carry optics matches and see how I do. I've never fired a faster striker fired polymer frame pistol in my life and I've shot all of them. Somehow it even feels better than the Walther PDP competition variant(the polymer one, haven't tried the metal one).Honestly, if you're looking for a good performing pistol and don't care which country it comes from--seriously consider the Canik. Yes, mine has a horosun on it and that is actually my first horosun but so far its doing great. I shot this using just the circle reticle(with no dot) and the circle dot and the circle dot is just too busy. Haven't decided if I'm gonna keep using just the circle or switch back to the classic dot.
>>56906025>significantly better value>$630 plus tipBruh my g19 gen 5 was $444
>>56905980You know what makes me really sad?The fact that I had over 200 rare and unique pepes on my old hard drive, and when it died I lost all of them. That picture is beautiful when you really think about it. All those images, all that beauty, that art...lost...like tears in the rain.
>>56906066Then it isn't optics ready.G19 MOS is $649.99 and I've literally never seen them cheaper(nor can I currently find it cheaper online) unless it was used. Either way, the G19 Gen5 doesn't even compare to this EVEN WITH the $100 performance trigger(which you'll note, my G19 does have the Glock brand performance trigger). The Canik Rival isn't even meant to be compared to a G19, it's more akin to a G34 but completely outclasses an out of the box G34 in everyway and its over $100 less expensive. The Rival is specifically designed for competition however Canik does have guns that are much more similar to the G19 and they typically cost $300 and from what I've heard they too have better ergos and a much better trigger. I haven't actually shot those ones though.
>>56906174>Canikis that some turk shit?
Why are muskets so nice and how do I cope? Or do I just run a 20” as my main gun? I have shot ars of all variants and I constantly find myself going back to a 20” even when I’m innawoods. What is the optimal musket build?
