So, the Stryk B just hit the shelves in Euroland.

It's an evolution of the Arsenal Strike One, which did rather poorly before. It's main selling point was herping about low barrel axis (and thus low barrel climb), but the biggest issue was the trigger which was lackluster at best. They eventually released drop in trigger replacements which should be OK.

The Stryk B was made in collaboration between Arsenal, Salient Arms and RUAG.
It's got a fairly novel locking system which allows for low barrel axis, but other than that it's mostly just a strikerfired polymer wondernine with some fancy "gripmapping" and an enhanced trigger.

I've got a 9X19 permit I need to fill by the end of the month, or I lose it. So I may just get one.

While mechanically interesting (low bore axis with non-tilting barrel and using multi-stage recoil springs) and ergonomically sound (gripmapping etc), it's probably not a gun I would consider carrying if it were legal here. The trigger has a pivot that acts like a glock safe action style thing, but I would not trust it one bit... It seems even more prone to go off than a Glock if your t-shirt or something accidentally gets in the trigger guard when re-holstering.

>Looks pretty sweet. Could you elaborate on the trigger "safety"?

If you look at the picture, the blue circle is the pivot point. The trigger cannot move back, unless the trigger first pivots on that point & then it can move back.
So first the trigger needs to swing around that axis is bit (for which pressure is very light) and then it can move back.

If you merely apply pressure straight back on the top of the trigger (red arrow), the trigger is blocked and cannot move. For a Glock trigger, this locking occurs when you don't pull the "paddle" into the main trigger. For the Stryk B, there is no separate paddle and the trigger itself is the safety.

Because the lower part of the trigger is very light, it is very unlikely for it to develop enough kinetic energy when dropped to make the gun go off (unlike what happened to the new Sig Sauer pistols). As such it is "drop safe" with this trigger. However, I wouldn't feel very at ease with it in terms of concealed carry etc because the slightest resistance from anything (say your holster bending or your t-shirt getting stuck) will effectively bring the pistol off safe by touching the power part of the trigger. You can always argue that since the gun won't fire unless the trigger is pulled, that it is inherently safe, but I think a lot of people would prefer an additional safety since there is little margin for error.

This gun is a range gun for me, so it's not an issue. But I would caution people that want to carry it concealed. Of course, with good best practices and solid holsters, this should not be an issue. But the margin for error becomes very slim.

The closest analog is the S&W M&P trigger, which is in two parts. Unless the lower part is pulled, the top part cannot move. But where the M&P is a visibly two piece design, the Stryk is a one piece trigger face.

I have no love for the stock M&P and Glock triggers, but the Stryk feels pretty decent. That could in part be due to the semi-straight design of the trigger, since the perception of weight is entirely different from a rounded design.

I'll probably rent a Glock to shoot side by side today. I don't think the range has a Walther PPQ or Steyr M9A1/L1A1.

Ordered the 17.2 barrel assembly and a DSA para lower kit. Unfortunately, DSA won't ship receivers to NY, and I have heard mixed reviews about Coonans, although my fullsize has a Coonan reveiver and I've had no problems. I will be looking for a DSA or Imbel receiver on gunbroker. Pics to come when stuff arrives.

Any one NewYorkaStananian to another, go the 80% route unless you actually want to make it legal for some reason.

Does anyone actually make a 80% FAL? Anyway, I'll be making this legal through the non detachable magazine route. It's a PITA but it's not worth the potential loss of firearm rights to me to have this be a practical gun. I have other more sensible guns if I ever need them.

The main thing I have read about the Ruger LCP II compared to the previous LCP models is that the LCP II features a short, crisp, single-action trigger with inner trigger safety. My LCP 9 has a DAO trigger and a slide safety switch.

I FINALLY got my NY pistol permit and it's unrestricted (can CCW in NY). I have a CZ-75b on order with my FFL. I wouldn't mind carrying that in the winter under a coat, but I also need a summer carry handgun. I'm thinking Glock 26. I have a G26 BlueGun that I've been practicing drawing with, but is the Glock 43 THAT much better for CCW?

Went up to Dallas this past weekend and met up with a MG buddy.
He brought out his Steyr AUG A1 and his RPB MAC-11 in .380.
I brought out my Chinese AK and AR-18.

The AUG was surprisingly fun. The main thing I have against bullpups is the trigger but in full auto who gives a damn. I consistently shot in 2 round bursts and there is minimal muzzle climb so I was able to stay on target at 15 yards through the scope. Again, it really is remarkable how little muzzle rise there is. You can one-hand magdump from the hip as easily as a SMG.

Of course, the MAC is a bullet hose, but I will say it's a funner bullet hose in .380 than it is in 9mm. I was able to keep bursts to about 5 rounds or so. Of course, the stock and front strap aren't really worth a damn. It's uncomfortable to shoulder and try to get a cheek weld. The cyclic rate is so high that little piles of unburned powder built up on the floor. Occasionally, residual powder left in the receiver would spark up after the gun was empty.

Fun times, regardless.

When i shot this for the first time, i thought i´m shooting with a BB Gun. Not to mention the almost non-existent recoil.

The trigger gave us headaches sometimes in the army. Cannot remember which part worn out in the trigger assembly, but either it blocked you from going FA, or you completely went FA on the slightest pull. Been fun times when our seargent yelled "2 single shots on target, open fire" and most of our guys went BRRRRRT.

Aside from trigger issues, how reliable were your rifles?
Were you issued an A1 or other variant?

MidwayUSA had Gen1 kits on sale for $50 a piece so I got two on a lark. The Gen2 looks way better but they were still $150. It looks pink in the picture but it's listed as purple and in person it looks like a light easter egg purple.

I'm planning on testing my build with my existing, definitely functional Glock 22 upper and then assembling a Glock 34/35 slide with a threaded .357 Sig barrel and ideally a cut for an RMR too. Eventually I'd like 5.5 inch barrels in 9mm and .40 too.

Looking at how it's a bird's head versus a much more comfortable pistol-type grip I can understand that.

I actually prefer the birdshead grip to a standard pistol grip only set up.

I see quite a lot of people sharing your view, but none of them seem to enjoy shooting buckshot, slugs, and more with bird's head.

I don't like bird's head, but I routinely shoot boxes and boxes of slugs, buckshot, turkey magnums using pistol grips. So I can't say I understand the bird's head thing very much... Only the most horrendous 3" 2oz turkey maximum-load ever got a sting in the hands, as much as I can tolerate a box of those, I can't imagine shooting even one with a bird's head grip. The way I see it, pistol grip is pretty much like palm-striking a punching bag, it's incredibly strong at taking impacts.

Might be gripping technique. Might just be hand differences, the shape of a grip from one hand to another probably magnifies the physical differences between people exponentially as recoil energy increases. Might also be a combination of the two. Perhaps further testing is required any excuse to fire ye olde handgonnes. I'll have to track down a bird's head grip though...
>> No. 105942 ID: 815268
The birdshead, for me, seems to distribute the recoil throughout my hand, wrist, and forearm, vs a PGO set up where it seems all the recoil is absorbed by the web of my hand and my wrist.

That's just how it feels to me. But yeah, it still leaves you sore to shoot 70 high brass 00 loads in 45 minutes lol.

I was about to write stuff about grip technique but fucking shit ammo up here is stupid expensive, literally nothing under a buck fifty per shell. Who cares about grips when it's the wallet that cries mercy before the hands.

When I track down some shotguns with burbface grips or PGO I'll save up my pennies (all of them) and have a good day making the berms noticeably heavier. It might be a while but I'll probably post the results in this thread.

So it's really hard to get anything for .587" bore but my buddy has some old lead bullets for his 577 Snider black powder.

I figured 170 grains of Trail Boss might be able to get a 520 grain lead bullet out the barrel.

The results were... Interesting.

I don't think that's true. It was my understanding that the Rifle is a DD but the ammo would only be a DD if it contained more than 1/4 ounce of explosive.
