im stuck on this vidya atm called rising storm 2 vietnam, it has potential but its nothing to write home about

anyway, im wanting to make a mod for it where instead of 32 vs 32 us army against nlf/pavn it would be 7-9 leet sog operators vs 50+ lightly armed charlies, and the SOG guys have to reach checkpoints through the map while charlie zerg rushes, with sog respawns done in a left4dead fashion of reaching a checkpoint to trigger respawns.

to get to the /k/ part of this post im looking for ideas on arming the SOG team, since they are going to be so outnumbered i want to give them extra firepower eg china lake or the starlight nv scope. i was really hoping for a hand portable flame thrower ala the aliens ripley thing because the game already has flame mechanics with a ww2 era flamethrower, but i want to err on the side of reality so if it didnt exist ill nix it.

pasting the list i wrote up, let me know what you think:

pointman
xm177, m3/suppressed,12ga, m2/starlight *sidearms*: hushpuppy, .45, hipower, LAW

mg
stoner 63, m60, rpd *sidearms*: hushpuppy, 45, hipower

i also want to do a good guy vs good guy map, like LRRP dudes in helicopters vs rogue SOG dudes who also use the vc traps. this would be a lot easier to do with the sdk than my original post but it would still be fun with the right map, or just recycling one of the more favored existing maps.

i think i would also add the folding stock ak to most roles and the scoped mas49 to sniper/dm because theyre already in the game

There's a machine gun thread a while ago but I felt like I should start a specific thread for firearms fed by belts.

Mostly because of this MG34 that followed me home.

Since this really is the first rifle of this type that I've had to play with, I'm a little out of my element. This is a TNW semi-auto only 7.92x57 and I wouldn't mind learning everything I can about this particular piece.

Another rapid fire shooting video. Yes, I am aware of the flopping AA flip-up rear sight. I am working with TNW on getting the tensioner spring for that, which they neglected to install on my particular gun.

If you noticed, I actually did not finish the belt. Had a failure to advance to next round on the belt, which caused the bolt to not pick up the next round. My gun in particular seems to be very sensitive to belt weight and the "pull strength" of the MG34 is known to be pretty weak, necessitating support of the belt of cartridges to feed smoothly into the gun. Not sure what can be done to improve this, since it's all depedent on the cam track of the top cover.
>> No. 108783 ID: e41002
>>108781
Check how tight the links are. The bolt is moving forward trying to pull the belt around, so the bolt is already being slowed by that. Then the bolt hits the round, if the links are holding the rounds too tightly, it takes too much energy to push the round through.

That's what I've found anyway. I've had to pry open links on a few belts, dramatically improving feeding and general reliability.
>> No. 108786 ID: e6ec85
>>108783
I don't think it's an issue about failure to feed by pushing the next round through the link. The kind of stoppages I encounter based on the failure to advance next link in the belt is fixed by simply pulling on the belt from the right side of the gun (the empty links), and it will click indicating the next round in position ready to feed as it slips underneath the main feed pawl on the feed block. If it were a failure to feed link failure, then this wouldn't be possible.

  A while ago we had a thread about high-speed photography and such. I think my friend and I took some curious pictures today, not sure how interesting they will be, but it was enlightening to learn what a DSLR could do in this kind of situation.

The camera in question is an Olympus E-510 with a Zuiko 14-58 F2.8 lens, a little dated and nothing special to begin with. In the midday sun, we were able to get a fast enough shutter to be able to capture bullets. Because of how these kinds of shutters function, the bullets are still quite blurry and faint but they're still visible.

Video is related to explain how the shutters typically work, to explain why the bullets weren't exactly as crisp as one would expect from shutter speeds of 1/4000th of a second, and why they're blurry in a slightly asymmetrical way due to a "rolling shutter" effect.

Also these guys shooting a giggle-switched AR-15 was adorable, great footage as well.

108758
The Walther Gewehr 43 was the Nazis’ answer to the superlative American M1 Garand. A gas-operated design actually pirated from the Soviet SVT40 self-loading rifle, the G43 was relatively lightweight and offered fast and reliable semiautomatic fire from a detachable ten-round box magazine. Though the magazine was tidy and removable, German Infantrymen were typically only issued two spares and fed the gun instead via standard five-round stripper clips from the top. These strippers were the same sort that fed the bolt-action Kar98k.
The G43 was later designated the K43, but the two weapons were otherwise identical. The G43 included a short length of cleaning rod underneath the barrel. Several soldiers would pool their cleaning rod segments to make a single usable tool.
The rear sight of the G43 was a sliding tangent, while the front sight was a fixed hooded barleycorn. The leather sling mounted on the left side. The safety was a rotating lever at the back of the receiver. A sheet steel re-ceiver cover helped keep the action clean from battlefield crud.
G43 rifles were intended to be issued at the rate of 19 rifles per Infantry company, along with ten separate ZF-4 sights and mounts. Allerberger fired all the new rifles his unit received and selected the most accurate for marksmen rifles. The scopes and mounts were then matched to their host rifles and marked by hand with the gun’s serial number.

Good to see you're still around as well. The collection has grown quite a bit, it is near 3100 cartridges at present. This was a photo I took back in January of the pile that had accumulated which I still needed to sort and catalog.

>>108752
While we did not have the opportunity to shoot this one and it would be of questionable wisdom to do so as the stock exhibited at least two cracks, SVT-38's handle and shoot much like the later SVT-40's. Most of the differences lie in the design of the stock and hand guards, the placement of the cleaning rod and the function of the magazine catch. I did find the SVT-38's mag catch seemed a bit more fiddly than those on the SVT-40 which may have had a hand in why it was redesigned. These two magazines were very snug fits but that can be the case with SVT-40's as well since the locking lug occasionally needs fitting to the individual rifle.

  Federal Court Finds California Magazine Ban Violates the Second Amendment

https://www.nraila.org/articles/20190329/breaking-federal-court-finds-california-magazine-ban-violates-the-second-amendment

https://d3uwh8jpzww49g.cloudfront.net/sharedmedia/1510684/2064261_2019-03-29-order-granting-plaintiffs_-msj.pdf

https://leginfo.legislature.ca.gov/faces/codes_displaySection.xhtml?lawCode=PEN&sectionNum=32310.

IV. CONCLUSION
Magazines holding more than 10 rounds are “arms.” California Penal Code Section 32310, as amended by Proposition 63, burdens the core of the Second Amendment by criminalizing the acquisition and possession of these magazines that are commonly held by law-abiding citizens for defense of self, home, and state. The regulation is neither presumptively legal nor longstanding. The statute hits at the center of the Second Amendment and its burden is severe. ... Finally, subsections (c) and (d) of § 32310 impose an unconstitutional taking without compensation upon Plaintiffs and all those who lawfully possess magazines able to hold more than 10 rounds.

...

California Penal Code § 32310 is hereby declared to be unconstitutional in its entirety and shall be enjoined.

For UK .577 Boxer, people use rare 24 gauge brass cut down and sized to a .62 case. Some home-loaders also cut down 24 gauge brass to 2" for homemade .577 Snyder, an interesting cartridge conversion of the Enfield muzzle-loading .577 rifled musket.

And the experimental T-44 machine gun developed from the German FG 42 and MG 42 machine guns.
U.S. MACHINE GUN T44 7.92MM
Manufactured by Bridge Tool & Die Works, Philadelphia, Pa. in 1946 - The gun is a conversion of the FG42 German, Light, Magazine Feed Machine Gun, with the belt feeding mechanism of the MG42 German, Belt Feed Machine Gun. The mechanical solution for the conversion was provided by the Bridge Tool & Die Works. The weapon is gas-operated blowback type combination; air-cooled; bipod supported; with forward handgrip and rear shoulder stock.
The receiver body in which the essential parts of the gun operate is a sheet metal fabrication. The barrel is permanently mounted into the forward end, and the receiver swaged circumferentially into a recess around the rear end of the barrel and secured by a locking ring, likewise swaged. The hinge member about which the feed mechanism rotates is welded to that portion of the receiver body directly rearward from the swaged area, thereby making the receiver body, barrel and hinge member an integral unit. Holding the receiver body in a normal firing position, there is an opening on the left-hand side running longitudinally from the welded hinge member for the length of the housing. This opening is bridged in one instance at a point located approximately 4" rearward from the hinge member by the ejector assembly. The resultant opening between the hinge member and the ejector assembly permit the receiver plate to position the shell cartridge for insertion into the barrel. Directly opposite this opening there is a similar small opening through which the cartridge cases are ejected. http://ww2.rediscov.com/spring/VFPCGI.exe?IDCFile=/spring/DETAILS.IDC,SPECIFIC=9554,DATABASE=objects

BREAKING NEWS: Hudson Manufacturing Files For Bankruptcy

Posted 1 min ago in Breaking News, Companies by Benjamin F with No Comments
Tags: bankruptcy, H9, hudson, lawsuit

Hudson Manufacturing, makers of the much-vaunted Hudson H9, filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy on March 14th. This is, presumably, in direct response to their previously cataloged troubles. Cambridge Valley Machining has sued Hudson over unpaid debts after being contracted to machine parts for them.
Chapter 7 Bankruptcy

There are several different types, or chapters, of bankruptcies that individuals and companies can file for. Hudson has filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, meaning that they have chosen to liquidate all their assets to absolve their debts.

>Hudson’s said it had 86 pistols in for warranty at the time the company ceased operation.
>So, somewhere above and beyond the millions of dollars of debt that Hudson’s creditors will try to reclaim, there’s almost $100k worth of bought and paid-for H9 components that may never find their way back to their owners. The boxes of disassembled H9s are left in a limbo state. Hudson is no more, as is its ability to pay for assembly, and or return shipping.

Looks like you're out of luck. All pistols that have been shipped to them for repairs are paperweights now. They won't ship them back to you for "liability reasons".
