>>56902867>fucks up subject>fucks up thread #Are you being an intentional cheese dick or short of firing neurons today? A good man would hit delete on the thread and do it over correctly, with #877 and at least "/hg/" in the subject line.
Berettafags, what other handguns have you enjoyed shooting? I love my 92X dearly, and would like something roughly similar. I shot a CZ the other day that I enjoyed, and too much Eva and Collateral makes me want a USP, but I don’t really want to pay the H&K tax. The Hi-Power, FNX and PX4 also seem cool.
OP you fucked it up
OP this is the Glock of /hg/ threads
CZ shadow with blue grips y/nYes I have a BerettaYes I have a CSXYes I have a 1911
>>56903152Yes but the first thing you should do is discard the blue grips. Pretty but way too thin.
Attention:All CZ Shadow and SIG Legions are now gay. Canik SFX-S will be the new USPSA meta.
>>56903304I'm racist though so it'd have to be Walther for me.
>>56903344That's fine. Also I think you can put wood grips on the this too.
>>56902957I like my CSX, 1911s and revolvers. The Gen 5 glocks I have shot I have positive things to say about the triggers.
>>56903152How is the csx? Thinking about getting one for carry ( what else would it be for). Already have a p365 xl but just don’t really care for it, strongly prefer hammer fired and the metal frame is a plus.
Took the 509c out in it's natural element, immediately slipped, fell and got snow down the barrel. Hope everyone is warm and toasty, treat yourselves to a hot cocoa today boys.
>>56903728Not him but I think it’s very shootable and like the trigger. It shoots where I aim it. The trigger reset is not an issue for me since I don’t ride the reset - I think riding the reset is a very bad habit people develop. I may get mine cut for an optic, 507k.
>>56902867Floridaman herein my infinite benevolencei will answer you eurofagpricetarget pistols from your graphic are often $2k+ usd, i can get a basic ruger mrk IV for like $400-500, and a fancier model for like $200 moreuseamericans can shoot in a variety of modern shooting sports, in all calibers and forms, not just watered down olympic style 22lr target shootingalso i can get a 22lr version of basically any pistol for cheaper training, but it will generally match the form factor of the actual gun it is based on, not have fancy sports gripsthose grips also suck as you can only train one handed right arm extended traditional profile stance, not modern two handed stances confortably or left handed really at all
Someone find me a MTR-14 please ahhhhh
>>56903770Can you get it cut, some videos seemed to think there isn’t enough room for a cut. Thanks btw
>>56904162Two shops I know of offer cuts for it Vulcan Machine Werks (160)Tac Rig (200)
>>56903204based. When im back in middle germany i should try out the shadow as a IPSC fun
>>56904208Where will this be sold? I’m that guy who never emailed you after I said my first gen coom oil dissipates too fast
>>56902957My jericho is quite nice desu, it's got a bunch of CZ internals. My HK is alright, same with the FNX. I guess it really depends on what you want. Do you want another DA/SA?
>>56904305In Arizona, Moka Raifus also got some. Im still using those overprices rubber caps but once those are gone its amazon time for /k/ with 400bottles of Coom :D
>>56903204they are actually hideous, i prefer shadow grey version much betteror lok ones
>>56904502>>56903725Thanks ladsEither one really, I like DA/SA but wouldn’t be opposed to an SAO gun. I shot a Springfield 1911 a while ago and liked it, but if I was going that route I’d probably just get an SA-35. I’m kind of interested in the BOX cheetah since I could carry it but I feel like I should get something other than another Beretta.
Ok so i finally have my CCW permit and need to chose a carry gun. Looking on the very small side, this gun needs to work for me in summer with shorts and a t shirt. Going to go to a gun store near me and shoot a few sometime soon, here's what I'm currently interested in Sig P365Baby 1911'sRuger LCPA j frame .38CZ compact or smallerThe only handgun I own is a double stack 1911. I really do like the trigger feel from a hammer fired pistol, I like a manual safety, and I like that shape in my hand. So the baby 1911's seem like a good starting point, but they're still pretty heavy for their size when I went to a gun show recently, and don't offer much capacity. But at the end of the day I want something comfortable enough to either pocket carry or barely feel it inside my waistband, so I've started considering some striker fired guns like the LCP and p365. Are there any guns that should be on my list to take a look at that I don't have here?
We had a good run, I'm proud of you guys
>>56905050>j frame .38do it
>>56904941FNX tactical is good if you want a threaded barrel and optic. I got my HK to have a reliable compact carry with a safety that is DA/SA.>>56905051all that waiting finally paid off
>>56905051What the actual fuck is wrong with you, besides morbid obesity?
>>56905050CSX. A lot like a tiny 1911 but smaller and double stack and has a better safety (does not lock the slide in place)
>>56905050The easiest gun to carry that I own is a ruger LCR. Works fine in jeans pocket, disappears with a unity runners belt. I dislike shooting tiny guns enough that I still carry a double stack 95% of the time anyway.
>>56905084Is that good? Never seen them locally.
>>56905124it's god tier. It was exclusive to Microsoft for a long time under the name fusion, got rebranded and is now sold in Safeways. Made by talking rain so the same people that make sparkling ice. It's basically like one of those non-carbonated sparkling ice drinks but with a bunch of caffeine and l-theanine in them.
>>56903152Yes. Theyre pretty sweet. Alternatively save up and buy a staccato
>>56902867I'm not terrified by target pistols, I just think they look like crap and the types of competitions they are used in have a format that's so different from the way I plan on using my guns that participation seems pointless. Asking why I'm afraid of target pistols is like Caitlyn Jenner asking why dudes are afraid to ask "her" out
>>56905263I already own a not-staccato but thought about getting another 2011 as an excuse to buy more magsThere's a lot of staccato c's being resold in my area, any real reason why
>>56905197Sounds rad, I'll keep an eye out!
>>56905109Oh that looks right up my alley, definitely going on the list anon
Going to get a suppressor for this fella on Sunday. Probably a Obsidian 9
>be tech worker>get laid offlooks like it's the dole for me lads>tfw was gonna buy a J-frame this weekend
>>56905746Probably a little buyer's remorse. Folks who spent beyond their means but don't shoot it enough to justify sitting on a couple grand if I had to guess. The C is supposed to be reliable and accurate.
>>56906234Where were you working?
>>56906234Damn that sucks. Have you got prospects in the area?
>>56906234Some teams will resume hiring in a few weeks.t. US-THN
Am I imagining it or did someone post a 365/hellcat type handgun from HK at shotshow a couple threads back. Anyone have info?
>>56906234sorry bro, shit sucks right now but it will get better. Time to grind leetcode, I've heard there's a ton of startups scooping up engineers laid off from big tech. I hope they gave you a decent parachute along with you having a decent emergency fund.
>>56906234NSA and homeland are always hiring.
>>56906368the pay is awful though. Big tech salary alone beats them out and that's before bonus.
>>56906234Any chance ur by the Tampa Bay area?
>>56906354I feel like there'd me more talk about it if there was one
>>56906354Don't know if real yet. It looks 3d printed. It's possibly a display piece prior to productionhttps://uspto.report/patent/grant/D918,328
>>56904208Nano oil? What the fuck? I want coomoil on my guns and my hands, not this off brand stuff.
>>56906526Thanks. I'd love to have an HK replacement for my XL tbqh.
>>56906526What's the point? M&P Shield and Sig 365 dominate this tiny gun meta. No one buys multiples of the same gun, execpt for Burt. H&K is good where its at, they need to make civilian alternatives of their long guns, not more meme firearms.
>>56906526yeah it looks like SLS printed nylon. I'm more surprised they added an optics cut. Might finally be catching up to the times, only many years behind SW for a higher price.
>>56906266>>56906357>>56906279the company I worked at was not one you've heard of, shit's hitting everywhere. i'm a senior engineer, i will be fine. and yeah i have significant savings + own profitable rental property (bought pre-covid) so don't cry for me>>56906337dafuq is US-THN? when i googled it all that came up was "Texas Homeless Network"
>>56906693you wouldn't need to if you had a shield bro>>56906697>H&K is good where its atsome of their offerings still need an optics cut but I do agree civ production of their rifles would be nice
>>56906777checked and maybe that anon is referring to he's in the US on a TN visa? Those have like a 60 day window to get a new job or gtfo. Good to hear you'll be good though. I've been increasing my emergency fund and trimming expenses like crazy. I want some nice guns but I think I need to just sell other things to fund this hobby for the time being.
>>56906227obsidian 9 is a great can, highly recommend picking it up.really want to get a threaded barrel for my PDP but the $250 Walther charges just feels way too steep
>>56906838Mine atleast came with 2 thread protectors and a different recoil spring that I assume is stiffer as there more blowback with a can?
>>56906777anyone have a glock 43x and a 17 you could do a side by side comparison? also, if you have a 43x, how do you like it?
>>56906697If HK dropped their prices 35% across the board they'd be good where they're at. But their premium pricing model combined with outright disdain for customers is abhorrent. Seeing them scramble to play catch up with a halfbaked micro 9 that has protruding cocking ears sticking out and a full size optic is bordering on pathetic>>56906227I was made aware of pic related recently. It doesn't change my opinion that the Obsidian is one of the best silencers on the market and they will repair this, but it seems to be inordinately common and apparently they require you to send the silencer in on your dime. Which is the gay part, usually silencer manufacturers pre-pay shipping for service.>>56906777I'm glad you were smart enough not to blow your load month to month like most Americans
>>56906777Alphabet related. I assumed you were axed recently like the rest of them.
>>56902957High level competitor/trainer here. The Elite LTT has been my favorite gun to shoot. I've shot them all and nothing comes close to how it fits my hand, and how smooth it operates. I have two of them. A standard iron sighted model (muh carry) and my competition model which is basically the exact same gun but with an RDO slide. They are a little big to be carrying all the time though.
>>56905746Be careful, some of the 2011 mags don't inechange - e.g. svi, atlas, stacAs far as them being sold on aftermarket, I'm not sure. Maybe they want a different model. The price point for the comp versions is on par with an svi, which is a little goofy.
>>56906933>I was made aware of pic related recently.With my first can, I made the rookie mistake of sending it to a store without a range. So with this one I'm going to get it at a store with a range, so at least if this does happen, I think it should be able to be sent and fixed while I'm waiting for approval
>>56906933Might be 45 cans with 9 end caps, I've heard that can cause strikes.
>>56906933I'm more bothered by their premium pricing model combined with their pistols generally being nothing to write home about.
>>56907043Staccato mags work in an atlas, and most people recommend getting atlas springs for your staccato mags
bros i have a USP9 on layaway.Where do i get an appendix holster with extra mag for a full size USP?
>>56907250JMCK + any mag pouch (including just sticking it in your pocket)
extra mags are never actually used in civilian self defense shootings.
>>56907437fr fr if I gave I shit I'd just carry a spare gun—switching to another pistol is always faster than reloading or diagnosing and clearing a malfhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1MSi4jjgNwU
>>56907437go fuck yourself fat fuck. I will carry a spare mag.
Got my FN hi power from SG in. Really happy with it for $620. Is there an easy way to date these? Also wondering what country it came in. They said LE trade in and I’m assuming Israel.
What's a good source for an all kydex iwb appendix holster for a p365xl? Or holsters in general?
>>56908178I'm satisfied with my JMCK kydex holsters and my C&G holster kydex holsters
>>56902867>Ultra precision modern work of art handgun>dogshit archaic unreliable dirty unjacketed projectile cartridge

>>56908085Wait wait wait does this mean my hi power is a T series??
>>56904565>In Arizonawhere tho?
>>56908256Yes i understand yuros are poor.
>find target pistol in Poland for sale I want>hmm if this is cheap enough, I can just import it for ~+$1000 or something and still make out with a steal of a gun>turns out the zloty conversion rate isn't as shit as I thought reeeee
>>56908085>SGspoon feed me, where is this? Nice gat anon, Hi Powers look so cool.
>>56906662Best handgun oil desu
>>56902957H&K USP is the most painfully boring gun I own. You pull the trigger, it goes bang. It's heavy enough to tame recoil, but light enough to feel good in the hands. It is aesthetic in a function over form kind of way. Only complaints are that the grip is blocky and you may not like it, I'd definitely hold one before purchasing. The trigger is good enough for a duty pistol, but it is not great. It requires an aftermarket rail adapter if you go that route. Holster availability is poor if you add a light. You can do a bit of work on the trigger, such as short reset trigger, match trigger, and LEM. The variants allows a lot of options. If I only could own one handgun, it would be a hard decision between a Glock 19.5 and the USP.
>>56908348Sportsmansguide, they sold out.
Anyone here have experience with Vedder holsters? I placed an order roughly three weeks ago, how fucking long does it take to heat up, and mold some holstex? I've never had to wait this long with other manufactures
>>56902957Get a P38 :^)
>>56908597px4, p226, glock 40, p38, cheetah, hk45c, just really buy whatever man, dont be a (brand)fag
>>56908085Show a picture of the reverse side of the slide.
>>56908795How much would you want for your 96 centurion slide and barrel?
>>56908988I use the 96 barrel and slide when i actually carry it mainly because my holsters dont have space for the retarded red dot on the RDO slide and 9mm doesnt extract well with mismatched partsso no, its worth a whole new gun for me
>>56908477I've placed orders on three different occasions with Vedder, two of which shipped in about a week and one took two weeks
>>56902867>neither of my LGSs have restocked 5 inch fullsize PDPs yetREEEEEEEEEEEEE
>>56908259Yes, it looks to be a T series, however it is a contract pistol. The reason commerical T series are coveted is because they were hand fitted and polished. It does not have any collector value, it is shooter grade.
>>56909119Jesus Christ that import mark :(
>>56908795This probably applies to the patches too.
>>56909133You sure? It doesn’t have a lanyard loop, I thought that along with the grips was the indicator of contract.
>>56909180I know the import is really fucking annoying, but I’m very happy for the $620ish I paid.
>>56909220At least the import mark is small and dark, It's definitely a shooter, finish looks good too, worn but in an even manner. Enjoy!Here's my favorite Beretta 92S. The owner of the gun shop looked at me like I was an idiot when I told him I bought it sight unseen. I tried to explain buying surplus firearms to him but he just didn't get it. I don't go to that shop any more.
To anyone interested Bass pro/cabelas is clearncing the PPQ .45 for $350. https://www.basspro.com/shop/en/walther-ppq-45-semi-auto-pistol
>>56909345Yea it will be a shooter. I bought it blind as well and was expecting worse. Their example photo had the import mark on the other side and the finish basically gone with rust. I’m really happy to get a real FN example and the fact that it’s T series and in better than expected is just a bonus. I’m gonna shoot the piss out of it.
Guys, how did they do it, how did they make the perfect pistol even better?
>>56909345Buying guns sight unseen is really stupidI do it all the time though, I think I only 25% of my guns were purchase new, the rest were gunbroker
>>56909512>not the DWX
anyone know what this red stuff is on my new super redhawk? it doesn't come off, I've tried a moist rag with CLP, and scrubbing with a nylon brush but not even a bit comes off.
>>56909564It’s really fun. I’ve done it for about 7 guns, but none were more than $6-700 so it wasn’t too bad. I haven’t been disappointed in any of them, have been very happy with most, and it satisfies the monke gamba itch in my brain.
>>56909564All of mine were from ClassicFirearms or J&G Sales. I must have pretty good luck because out of 5 pistols I bought they all turned out nice. Only one needed any work but it gave me a chance to really get to know S&W revolver internals.
>>56902867So how'd I do?
>>56909766yeah I'm thinking based
>>56909766Serial covered with the tape, sorry resident glow lurkers. I'll give the jew my money, but not my ID.
Here it is all fixed up, needed a new ejector rod, ejector rod latch pin, and a new cylinder stop fitted.>>56909766>>56909776Absolutely based.
>>56909772Can I ask what the QR code thing next to the serial is (I covered that with the tape too).I'd scan it but I'm particularly paranoid about it for some reason, does it just lead to an online manual or something?
>>56909846I think it's just the serial or other manufacturing data encoded as a QR code
>Can't Space Cowboy LARP because Jericho's fall foul of countries gay ass lawsYeah I could get the babby deagle, but its not the same.
>>56902867Americans buy handguns to shoot homeless people, so they need to be practical for concealment.
>>56910076it's true that's why I got this bad boy kitted out
>>56909428Daaaamn bumping for this. GET EM GUYS
>>56908259Why didn't you buy a pewdiepie hi power fag

>>56910286if it weren't a 12 rounder I probably would have but I'm not gonna bother tracking down cuckmags for it and bps sure as shit isn't going to just give me the mags
>>56907043SVI is designed for SVI grips. they sit slightly higher. you can just go at the top of the mag catch in the SVI tube a bit with a needle to get them to sit right.
>>56908178Seconding JM Custom, but stick with the quick ship stuff. Darkstar gear is also fantastic, but more of a wait usually.
>>56909618Try a QTiP with nail polish remover, maybe its organic paint
>>56902867>terrifiedNo, just not entertained. They're shit when it comes to reliability in the face of anything remotely tough, they don't carry well and tbqh they just look like shit. Target shooters are faggots. Real men train to kill shit, not punch paper only.
>>56903344Since when does having a Walther make you racist? Are you not just retarded instead for having a gun with such a high bore axis?
>>56908085Here’s what I can tell off the top of my head.It’s a mark I post 1964, pre 1981 contract pistol.Hi powers had so many inconsistencies, they were basically just using whatever parts were available and slapping them on the gun and sometimes making minor changes without any official designation.It’s why sometimes you can find the exact same year and models but one with a spur hammer and another with a ring hammer.Contract pistols are not my speciality but I’m pretty knowledgeable of the commercial ones.

>>56913172I mean its a designated Winter Oil but its able to hard fuck MiLSpec gun oil by factor 3 when we talk about evaporation at normal and elevated temps during indoor blastings or summer fun.

Yesterday Korbi shipped 10 prototype parcels, fun goes on :)
>>56913235I've been a stubborn slip 2k and 2k EWL guy for many years, but how would an anon go about giving you some business and trying out anon lube?
>>56913101Is coom oil used by anyone besides retail civilians?Does it have any scent?What’s in it that differentiates it from other gun oils such as slip 2000?
>>56913356>Is coom oil used by anyone besides retail civilians?no>Does it have any scent?salty milk & coins>What’s in it that differentiates it from other gun oils such as slip 2000?the special ingredient is the coom
>>56908795Show close up pic of those sweetheart grips
>>56913356Honestly. I bought it because it was made by some guy on /k/ and seems legit. The basic idea is that it’s the combination of a dry lubricant (hBn which is used by reloaders as bullet lube) and oil to increase its lubricative effect. If you go back in the archives he has posts telling you all about how to make the prototype oil. His actual product he seems trying to maximize the rust inhibition and protection of the oil. I cannot tell you how actually good it is, the guns I put it on for storage haven’t rusted, I use it in my carry guns, it lubricates. How much better? I think it feels smoother than just normal CLP or other oil but that’s subjective. >used by anybody It’s an incredibly niche product that is new and is still in the prototype stage

>>56913356I got it to support a /k/ poster. It was also not very expensive on Amazon so it was an easy impulse. I like the smell better than Hoppes. After memeing and using it and posting enough I got sent the two winter samples you see on the table a few posts up. It’s the only oil I use now cause I have a lifetime supply. I haven’t really told lube anon yet but I purchased a Savage/Stevens shotgun for $130iwh bucks and smothered it in oil and left it in my barn for the winter. We shall see how it does vs rust. Also my 300 black out doesn’t SPROING as much in the buffer tube.

People would ramble about CZs have low bores, but they really don't.

I cant fucking reply to so many Anons while making a knife with a friend. But Anons, the dry lubricant isnt just hBN... hBN is the cheapest and the more expensive non-ceramics are there to passiv smoothen the action or prevent steel from forming micro demage that increase friction during its lifetime. 100% handwork (if you get the joke), production in low scale, hand label on bottles, filling and packing just to prevent retards from touching it (3rd party production)
>>56913309What's that wrapping that's holding the strap down called?
>>56913688I understand what it is, my question was how/where I give him some business, dude.>>56913786Just a rubber band. Also go by ranger bands depending who is selling and using them.
>>56912886It doesn't make you racist I am racist and I don't want no turkroach gun.>>56913688Also this. Bore axis is a meme. Just shoot the gun. Walthers are great. And Caniks are basically a clone of Walthers that handle exactly the same so I don't even know why you'd mention it.
>>56913786Ranger band, aka a slice of old bicycle inner tube. You can also find overpriced (cost more than free) ranger bands at your favorite tactitard online store.
>>56913688>People would ramble about CZs have low bores, but they really don'tWhere the fuck does this shit come from anyway? Even in the video of a RIA rep at shotshow said their not-cz race gun was 'low bore axis'The only thing that makes them "low bore axis" is from being able to ride the frame really high compared to most guns. But most people don't and then bitch how a CZ feels snappy.

>>56915148they are legit, tho on a more expensive side, but like 10%-20% above market looking from their different listings so i don't think it makes sense
I saw this flip up pistol red dot and I'm wondering just how dogshit it is. You guys know what I'm talking about?
>>56915502>Flip up>Pistol>On a slide that absorbs a controlled explosion>Sub 50 dollarsWhat do you think?
>>56915753I know it's dogshit I just want to know if it would be even worse.
>>56915894It's exactly as worse as you think it is anon
>>56914605Are you a collector or plan on getting a euro threaded suppressor for it? Then get it. If you are just going to shoot like a normal USP 45 then I'd pass.
>>56915502Take off Romero zeros are sub 100 sometimes
>>56915940I have no .45 caliber pistols, no HKs, and no suppressors, so this would fill some holes in my collection and open another. I enjoyed shooting a rental one at a range, and would like to shoot my own as much as I can.It's definitely a gun that I want in my collection. Pistols with threaded barrels are about to be classified as assault weapons and banned from purchase here in Washington, so I wanted to pick one up before then. I would prefer to not scam myself though, since I don't know what they were going for the last time there were any available to purchase from bigger retailers.
>>56916086That fit on a p320 x FULL or is that stupid to ask?
>>56913309I can send you some in a needle oiler, email me with a timestamped pic of one of those guns firstname.lastname@example.org>>56913356I believe it's unscented but the chemicals have a mild soapy lavender smell. If you've ever smelled crushed or dead ants it's like that but milder. It's main feature imo is it takes substantially longer to evaporate or flash off compared to anything else. Most stuff evaporates off into sludge in 2 weeks, coom supposedly lasts a year or more.>>56913688I want to get a final edition as soon as they drop but I'm also panicking about the RIA 5.0, Lelkek P15 and DWX all of which will be v& based on mag capacity once this Oregon law is successfully enacted>>56914605That's a total ripoff no way, but you should be able to find an Elite or Expert .45 for about $1,000 which is reasonable. They don't have threaded barrels obviously but still have the match parts
>>56916109Dealer cost is about 1200, so go from there. Anon is right, it's a mediocre gun. If you want the full match trigger like the Expert/Elite you'll need to change a few springs.
>>56916109Just buy the threaded barrel separately.
>>56914605There's a guy on HKPro selling a LNIB with five 12rd mags plus night sights installed (and OG sights included) posted it four days ago, still marked as availableOh it's $1,500, even if you have to pay for shipping it's a much better deal
>>56916214>>56916215>>56916237I was actually less worried about the trigger, and more about the cost of a barrel + recoil spring + sights à la carte adding up to the price of a USP tactical anyways. What's different between the Tactical trigger and the Match triggers?>>56916341I need to make more posts (is it 5?) before I can message him, but I can't have the magazines anyways because they're over 10rnds.
>>56916384USP Tactical needs match sear spring, TRS, and hammer spring for the match trigger setup
>>56916214>If you've ever smelled crushed or dead ants
>>56916384Ughhh they're so expensive now it makes me sad/mad. A USPT should be like $900 it makes no sense they're so inflated. They were already expensive at that price!Anyway Tacticals used to come with match hammers which may still be the case but barring that change the main difference is springs. The Tactical has regular USP springs (TRS, sear, hammer), the Elite/Expert have lighter match springs. The hammer and sear springs are easy to change but the TRS is a serious problem to get in.So you do want the threaded barrel then? Damn. Man you might as well get a Mark 23 at that point if you're considering paying $1,500 for a ho hum assed USP Tactical. I can't believe I'm actively upselling HKs right now what the hell is going on.>>56916493Bro I can't stand the smell, I guess it's just strongly tied to my scentmemory but any time ants get in I clean them up and invariably pop some and they frigging STINK man. Or if there's a rogue scout crawling around I squish him with my finger and the area immediately smells like dead ants. They smell like little lavender olive oil bombs I HATE IT it makes me actively mad to smell it. These little shits violate MY HOME and have the gall to steal MY CRUMBS and crawl around on MY DESK then they stink up MY AIR. Next time you see an ant in your house crush it and smell your finger.I'm a partial super taster so maybe there's correlation to smell but ants really peeve me off brother, ESPECIALLY their stink.
>>56916611Burt, as someone on the spectrum, have you ever been diagnosed with autism?
>>56916751Interesting. Thanks for all the friendly and even not so friendly advice throughout these threads
>>56916764That sounds ominous lolIt's my pleasure to sperg.Today's question is, which gun do I put a Deltapoint Micro on?
is there a reason to buy (or not buy) a strike one in 2023? I heard that recoil is pretty low and it's good for ipsc. I'm euro and i'm eyeing strike one speed
>>56916804The optic is ugly af, only option is the glock>>56916751You are like my math buddy, not autistic but miles away from normal (best kind of friends).
Serial number: 1337Just pay the 3500, goy.
>>56917521since you appear to be special needs, that is the XL version with optics cut which is MSRP 3599
- Link in OP is dead- Is there a discord server invite link?
>>56917785No shit. Also, nobody worth a damn uses XLs in competition. A: because minor scoring in Open, B: not CO legal, and C: STIs always cracked frames at half the round count of good guns, not to mention the small parts breakages. Hence, nobody buys XLs.
>>56917812https://pastebin.com/gs6mLNikThere isn't a discord server associated with /hg/.
>>56912727this and they're all gay calibers or .22

>>56902867Why are euros afraid of red dots? They’ve been on the market for fifty years and are still banned from every issf sport i have to completely cludge together mounting solutions for nra bullseye because europeans insist gun technology stays in the early 20th century >pic related my 10m gun, no dots allowed>file size too large please excuse the phone posting
>>56918105Bicycles have kept the same upright, straight wheel, triangle frame design for a hundred years because the people in charge of all official sports (the UCI) enforce it.Bicycle tech is literally stagnant on purpose because developing new tech that isn't allowed in competition is just a waste of money since nobody is allowed to use it. Expect this of all competition sports.Europeans are retarded.
>>56916214>I'm also panicking about the RIA 5.0, Lelkek P15 and DWXGod gave you redundant organs for a reason. How bad do you want these pistols?
>>56918296It's not a matter of money, they are dragging ass on production manYou CANNOT BUY a P15 aluminum or RIA 5.0 Optic at this moment and while I could buy a flipped DWX from a scumy I-know-what-I-got boomer that's way lower on my list because they heebed the price. And I have a pile of DWX mags and P15 mags already anyway so no rush there. RIA 5.0 mags are nonexistent atm so that is my nightmarest FOMO right now, it physically hurts I can't get them or pry any info out of RIA. I could buy that mystery RIA 5.0 """"prototype"""" on gunjoker but I don't trust it
$149 for a Deltapoint Micro? This seems like a scam but my scamdar isn't going off and I don't see anything egregious in my digging for horror stories, just them pissing off reddit karmamongers lolhttps://thecastlearms.com/product/leu-deltapoint-micro-3-moa-dot-matte-glock
I shot my star Firestar in .40 todayHoly fuck I hate this gun. The sights are like 6 inches high and 4 to the right, and the recoil is extremely uncomfortable.
>>56918461So what gender of Glock does it work on?
is this the worst import mark?
>>56918939Anything Century or Springfield is
What is the actual name of cumlube so I can find it to buy. Much rather support an anon over Big Lube.
>>56918939All import marks are fucking trash now that the ATF requires them to be prominent. Century's is the worst because of the shitty engraving and the gratuitous serial number that they so helpfully misaligned.

>>56919147Not the guy you're responding to, but somehow I've never heard of this guy. Is he legit? If so he'll probably be getting some of my money soon.
>>56919267Korbo (the american LUBE in arizona) had phone calls with him, sold him oil 2 times and everything on legal and registred basis between 2 LLCs. Moka is crazy but a very friendly Anon. Check out his Insta and facebook
You lube guys are fucking strange. Could there be anything less relevant to making a gun work than what kind of lube you use? Pick a lube. Use it. And move on with your life.
>>56919348Yeah I don't get it. Very strange thing to obsess over.
>>56919385I just use white lithium grease cause it kinda looks like cum in my guns
>>56918817https://www.leupold.com/deltapoint-micro-glockDoesn't specify--it's agender. I intend to put it on a boy do you think he will mind?>>56918939I think so. Century imports so many guns they don't care to do it nicely. They use that godawful electro-pencil engraver, they double up markings that already exist on the gun like county of origin or model, they make up new serial numbers instead of using the existing ones on the gun. Bunch of engraver-rapists over there ruining guns left and rightI love it when importers do intelligent, discrete marking without duplicate information.
>>56919509LA really do be Rust IRL
i want a metal framed mark 23 with wood grips
>>56919348Yeah right, I'll have you know my HK USP literally exploded because I didn't use a lube with nano particles
First time ever taking one of these pics. Please rate my EDC.
I like frog lube paste yes i know it’s almost 100% coconut oil, but i tried using 100% coconut oil and it’s not as good
>>56919822Coconut oil can seem beneficial to your vagina because of its antifungal and antibacterial properties — and it might be for some people, but only if it’s virgin coconut oil — but it has a higher pH of 5.5 to 7.5, which is well above your vagina’s normal pH of around 4.5.
>>56914605Fuck no, just save up anouther couple hundo and get a Mk23.
>>56905050Good lord don't listen to any of the previous retard replies. Get a p365 or, if possible, a p365xl because it comes with the optic mounting. P365 is the best of the options you listed. Be sure to GET SOMETHING WITH COMMON HOLSTER COMPATIBILITY or you will suffer for it later.
>>56919858are you coming on to me anon? i’m getting horny >>56919818meh
>>56919509That doesn't look real. Is it .22? The bore looks too tiny for 9mm and the "silencer" is visible off center, how would bullets even get out? And why does it look like a 60 year old Nigerian battlefield pickup?
>>569201281. It could have been bent during the struggle2. It is probably a ported tube type silencer; barrels really don’t have to be straight to work you know
>>56912879I got my email yesterday, can't wait!
>>56919147Thanks. Let us know when the sling come back in stock
Once I sell my G48, I will be free of polymers and strikers entirely. I finally understand the errors of my ways, metal framed hammer fired master race only from here on out
>>569198180/10 no spare mag
>>56920247Thats impossible, sometimes that Anon is out-of-stock faster than Im able to inform you,lol. You need to join his facebook/insta hord of the 1000s of horny AK slingers to get the resuply info :D
Is a 1.5" group at 5 yards decent?
>>56920428depends on whether you're using your sights or not
>>56920261What are your metal framed hammer guns? What do you carry?
>>56920448I'm using your mom's sights
>>56920413>no spare magDo you really think 16 rounds isn't enough?
>>56920486You need 10 mags or you're just asking to die.
>>56920468Current EDC is a CSX. Got a collection of various sized Berettas and 1911s. Getting a BOX as soon as they're available too.
>>56920520Show me, you sound alot like me
>>56919453Idk why I typed out gender since I wanted to know what gen it works on and he'll probably grow into it.
whats the /hg/ approved rmr red dotI want to run one pistol with a bunch of FANCY CITY SLICKER shit just for something different. I see a lot of shilling for the vortex viper but I like my holosun chinkshit sights quite a bit on my ARs.
>>56920665do you mean rmr footprint or do you mean any pistol dot?
>>56920486I unironically carry a spare mag to balance out my belt. Gun on one side, spare mag and phone on other.
>>569206653.25 MOA SRO
I fell for the Beretta meme. I liked the 92FS i got to shoot but i can't get my thumb as high as I'd like. I had to have it tucked under my support hand to feel comfortable. Maybe because of the hump? Is this normal? I don't have large hands, they're like Smedium
>>569206655 MOA SRO, less than 500 on EuroopticACSS Holosuns
>>56920691Even for EDC?
Anyone know of that gif where it's that guy from sagedynamics magdumping with an optic on his pistol and it just shatters?
>>56920722I didn't know Australians could own guns
>>56920722Oh shit we got an Australian up in this bitch.
>>56920714Get on the notification list for a Jagerwerks BROS if you're worried about accidentally dropping your carry gun from shoulder height onto concrete.
>>56920665>vortex viperMy buddy broke his. Twice. He literally shattered the lense from recoil of his 10mm glock slide going back and forth I shit you not. Warrantied it, put it back on, fucker starts flickering like crazy after some more mags through it.Don't ever buy a vortex, if they can't sustain the simple abuse of firing your gun imagine if you actually needed it in a woods or shtf. I could excuse it if they were a budget optic but they're more expensive than most of their competitors and I've never heard of another dot breaking just from recoil.
canik steel rival when bros
>>56920776>if they can't sustain the simple abuse of firing your gun imagine if you actually needed it in a woods or shtfIf shit hits the fan, do you expect to be bumping into shit all the time or something?
>>56920803I think you need to reread my post there bud.
>>56920851to be fair im not looking for SHIT HITS THE FAN VIABLE in my fucking handgun. I have rifles for that. My handgun is for things that go bump in the night when i dont have time to get under my bed for a shotgun or to my safe for the other dozen guns i have. realistically, it's to put holes in paper and threaten my fish when i'm drunk.
>>56920893>threaten my fish when i'm drunk.Hell yeah brother eat some fishsticks in front of em to show em what you're capable of
>>56914152They (CZ, RIA, CZ fanboys, etc.) probably just thought it sounded like a nice justification for the inside-out rails. The CZ bore axis is a little lower than some, but still higher than others (like Glock).Somewhat related; I shot my 75B and 92 compact back-to-back recently and the Beretta seemed like it had less recoil which I wasn't really expecting. Not sure if it's because of the different grip shape, the different locking system, slide weights, or what.
>>56920665What for?>>56920776Why do you think that bizarre experience is the norm? Why aren't there 450,000 reports of Vortexs dying instantly if they were that weak? The brand wouldn't survive if there were even 100 such cases bro
>>56921020>Why aren't there 450,000 reports of Vortexs dying instantly if they were that weak?I don't think there are that many people running a Vortex on their 10mm, for one thing
>>56920893im a retard why is the rear sight not in the reardoes the short distance between the rear and front sight affect aiming
>>56921036It's because the slide was designed for a red dot so the irons are set up to cowitness with one from the front. I just haven't decided on a red dot for it yet.
>>56921036some people don't like the rear sight blocking some of the optic, some people like having the front and rear sight viewed through the same lens (so they're the same color)
>>56920893Betta? Looks like you have a lot of shit crowding the surface? I trust you have some open areas so he can go to the surface to breathe? The tank looks nice and live planted is dope, but I've always been one to keep Bettas in longer tanks, rather than taller.
>>56920702if you have a normal high grip, just place your thumb on the back of your support thumb
92Xi trigger (Beretta OEM) is in. It’s good. Really good if you have the match hammer, converts it to SAO. I’m going to see if I can convert it easily to DA/SA.
>>56921162it's frogbit so the leaves naturally provide gaps and he's also not retarded so if he lacks a hole he can push shit out of the way and make one. yeah the tank layout isn't really ideal but i had a free corner of the desk and it fit perfectly in it. he has the whole 5 gallons to himself and does great. he has a bubble nest most of the time waiting for a gf to flop along(he's too aggressive for me to actually want to breed him to one of my females unfortunately, he lives in this tank precisely because he is too much of an asshole to live in a community tank)
>>56921253converting it to DA/SA should be as easy as swapping in a normal trigger
>>56920413Show me one documented case of someone actually having to reload in a self defense scenario.
>>56921286No, the trigger has a nub on the back of that blocks the trigger travel needed for DA/SA
>>56921312Lick my ass
>>56921319Let me watch
>>56921327Oops forgot my trip.
>>56921062>some people don't like the rear sight blocking some of the opticRace cut chads rise up!
>>56921253Are you talking about this? https://www.beretta.com/en-us/collections/gun/92/xtreme-s-trigger-group-for-beretta-92-series/I've been thinking of getting the aforementioned for my 92 Stock, but from personal experience of fingerfucking the 92x performance the only notable improvement seems to be in the DA-trigger pull which is significantly smoother, but the SA pull is the same. Not bad at all, but the same. Also put all tripfags in camps.
>>56921368Like the ones that are basically summer daycares? Or are we talking weight loss camps? I'm all for both.
>>56921315So... converting it to DA/SA should be as easy as swapping in a trigger that doesn't have that nub, i.e., a normal one
>>56921384I will leave that up to your imagination.
>>56921368No I meant to say the flat faced trigger they sell, which is now stock in the new 92Xi modelI have two 92X performance trigger groups (1 installed and one soon to be installed) and think highly of them. They’re 100 dollars on eurooptic right now.
>>56921384the kind with wooden doors everywhere and soccer teams for the inmates
>>56921396Yes. But I’m trying to convert the trigger itself to DA/SA
>>56921417so grind off the nub with a Dremel, idiot
>>56909618Try a brass brush
>>56921447And I’m done, took around 20 minutes
>>56921514ah I see why it's SAO
>>56919864>couple hundoYeah haha, just a couple...
>>56921534It’s not that different from the 92XP trigger (bottom), I think the XP trigger is better for DA
>>56921587>>56921594yeah but it is noticeably farther forward than the rest. Either way that's a based collection anon
>>56921514That looks like it'd be really uncomfortable to pull DA.
>>56921629it kind of is, you can see why Beretta went with the 92XP trigger despite the 92XP being able to be carried cocked and locked. The 92XP trigger (my favorite) in the 92Xi probably is a home run, DA/SA and cocked and locked for those CZfags. I could not install the normal return spring and had to use one of those wilson combat trigger conversion kits with the flat face, the normal return spring is like fully tensioned when you install due to the trigger position so the trigger is probably a bitch to install in a 92Xi. you get most of the flat face while still comfortably being able to pull the DA trigger
I've never sold a gun and don't way to pay for armslistWhat's the best way to sell?I have 2 pistols I fucking despise
>>56902867Americans can actually use handguns for their intended purpose, so most people target shoot with their defensive weapons rather than buying olympic-calibre rimfire/airguns that are good for target shooting and only target shooting.
>>56920893>threaten my fish when i'm drunkThat's a bad idea anon, it's not like I know from experience or anything that would be crazy but I'm telling you you should stop doing that
Got my slide back from vulcan Machine werks after taking the RMR pill so I can shoot passively under NVs.Thinking about getting the frame and grip refinished to match better.Seems fine when hand cycling, will have to sight in the red dot.Also need to get new sights, the front due to being a suppressor height is probably going to co-witness with the red dot which is a no sale for me.
>>56920665SRO or RTS2
>>56922222you dont want to co-witness?
>>56922222checked, pic unrelated
>>56921576You absolutely can find a Mark 23 for $1,800 or less. You just won't find it this minute.
>>56922118can't believe he skips leg day>>56921514how's the comp on the 92? The gun already shoots pretty flat as it is. Might be fun to try one out though, where did you get it?
>>56922351Not with rear iron sights, since the red dot is smaller and is more accurate.So I'm going to go with a lower 1/3rd cowitness>pic related my 2011 when I first got her in 2018.
>>56922687>>56922222Changes to pistol in obvious to not so obvious:1. RMRCC mount for NV passive shooting2. Griffin Armament cam-lok suppressor mount/comp for ease of suppressor install/removal3. GI industries aluminum grip because it feels better, grips tighter and fits my hand better (cheely profile).4. Geppert Large adjustable trigger. Done to flaten my trigger finger due to size, am running on the shortest setting to fit, had to cut back of trigger shoe to clear magazine release.5. Cheely non-threaded magazine release. Serrated myself to change to a horizontal serration for a better grip instead of vertical when bringing my thumb down off the safety for magazine changes6. Sear spring adjustment, the grip swap changed dimensions off enough to reduce all preload which was honestly too tight for my taste. Went from an original 1lb Safety, 2lb pretravel with 3lb break/3lb reset, to a .5lb safety, 2lb pretravel, 4lb break and reset. It went from being the gun equivalent of cherry reds to cherry mx blues; without the sound.
>>56922754Also forgot, I chopped down the slide release. Part of this was to fit the grip without having to chop it like the stippled sti grip; but the real reason was in a high tang grip it's easy for my thumb to lean just enough on the slide release by accident to interfere with last round open.The slide release is still far enough back for to one hand release the slide without having to do the 1911 flip.I did the trigger shoe, slide release and serration on the mag catch by hand. Not the best out there but the only way to learn is to do it.
>>56922076sell them to me anon
Where is the best place to get my gen 5 Glock milled for an Acro p2?
>>56922852I just got my rmrcc milled 2011 back from vulcan. It was 7 weeks for milling and recoating.Of which apparently their glocks are faster because they've been doing it longer. They do require you to send in the optic with the slide probably to confirm fitment. I got back the same exact RMR CC I sent them confirmed by Serial Number so there is no scam there.
>>56916214I'm just going yo ignore your text and ask why the fuck you'd get a RMR duo?Had one paired with my acog since mounting a batter requiring optic as a close tange backup for a non battery optic didn't make much sense on paper.Holyfuck that thing was trash. Where we usually have to cover up most of the fiber optic on our acogs those duos are never bright enough.
>>56920702I have smedium hands and it wasn't too bad for me. I'll usually use rest my support hand a bit further up toward the muzzle since these new grips have really good contact and checkering. It definitely helps to get slimmer grips. Even with smedium hands, I don't have trouble actuating the frame mounted safety (I'm not a big G dedocker fan), it just takes a lot of range day drills and dry firing imo. Love the grip angle and handling on mine.>Picrel. My "Giulia" M9A1 with INOX Alumagrips and the LTT Trigger Job. Just waiting for my INOX safety to complete the two-tone look (and eventually barrel).Beretta is like Alfa Romeo. They may not be as rare or expensive as a Ferrari, but you can still load them with options and performance parts for cheap. And you cannot understate the signature Italian elegant contours and silhouette.
>>56903878>americans can shoot in a variety of modern shooting sports, in all calibers and forms, not just watered down olympic style 22lr target shootingso can we. if you are a sports shooter with an autistic kitted 22 or 32 you already fullfill the requirement to buy guns and there is nothing that stops you from getting whatever else you want and i know for a fact most shooters do. its just not so dominant in competitions and most indoor ranges dont allow bigger than 32 so its a summer only activity unless you want to struggle in waist deep snow at the range.
>>56920499this is /K/FP territory, chumbud
>>56922912I don’t want to wait 7 weeks man it’s my only Glock. Jesus I might have to buy another Glock just to get this Glock worked on.
>>56916214Appreciate the offer, but I'm not in dire need. Was just looking to give anon a little business. I can wait to see it pop up on Amazon.
>>56922978I traded for the cog'n'dot on this rifle years back and always intended to replace the very meh dual illum, but tbqh I really haven't felt a pressing need to. It sucks if you're going to use a flashlight in low light or otherwise find yourself shooting from dark places into bright places, but on a rifle that sees 95% of its use outdoors in daylight, it gets the job done. My amber one is stupid bright outside.
>>56922498It’s the PMM comp that I do not recommend, it just stays on with locktite instead of Jarvis comps that have better finishes and have a set screw. Get the Jarvis which have the option for double port or single port. Super soft shooting, it’s a single port comp so it still works with 115gr and the standard recoil spring but I can feel it barely able to cycle. It handles my defensive ammo like a dream. I actually can’t take it off right now as I meant for it to go on a compact since I put too much locktite on because I was a retard who listened to their instructions, I should have used rocksett or a other purpose made threadlocker for muzzle devices. The .40 S&W 96 recoils a lot, it really needs a ported or compensated barrel. Makes for a good training aid for practicing the 92
>>56922222If your backup irons are sighted in, you can look through your irons making sure front and rear are aligned and then just move the dot until it sits on the front post. You should be 95% zeroed then Kind of makes the whole having to remove the sight to replace the battery once a year (or a couple of months) a nonissue
>>56925361My experience with handguns is that this is not true. Using irons without the dot they can be zeroed perfectly, put the dot on and use the irons to zero the dot, the dot is off. Parallax, lenses, magic, I don't know.

>>5692101092's slide has a big chunk of mostly useless metal cut out of it. Nobody else can copy it without looking like a Beretta.
