Someone corrected me about five posts below the one you quoted. I bought the adapter shortly after that.

Here's mine with a friend's Octane 9

  Not sure if this is genius or stupid, but it's neat.

Also fun to brand people with it, I guess. Good luck getting this into a bag right after shooting it.

One of my biggest gripes with AR15s has always been the lack of folding stocks. But this is obviously going a step further.

It's neat keeping it "one piece" but AR can be taken apart to two pieces already and they have those PDW stock too to reduce size

Hopefully, someone reputable can test how well the rifle holds zero after being folded and unfolded. Cool idea, though.

Get one with a 12.5" barrel, then a Law Tactical folding stock adapter that goes to the right instead of left (if one existed). Would make for a nice compact package.

I've always had a hard on for PDW ARs for some reason despite them not being as practical as a standard carbine when it comes to efficient use of standard ammo. A .300BLK would make more sense than a 5.56 though.

In the standard AR grip the spring just goes in a hole in the grip.

>> No. 103620 ID: ad8094
Correct, normally AR pistol grip install up into the receiver but CQR has to come in from the back because of the buffer tube so the spring has to be installed afterward

A bunch people on /k/inder is saying mine is a bootleg/knockoff and theirs doesn't look like mine and better. But no one has offered actual photo of their taken apart stock.

Also please stand by for range report, I haven't have time to take pictures but both Frankengun and Stoplossed doesn't like the stock. It functions but they feel meh about it.

One of the thing I didn't like about the stock is the cheek weld area feels odd. Look at the Magpul MOE/CTR it's slightly larger compare to the CQR which made the CQR a little bit less comfortable to rest my face on it.

Help me operators!

Having ejection issues with a romy G build. Every spent case gets stuck in the dust cover/ action.. Pull the dust cover off and run it and it shoots and cycles fine. About a five o'clock ejection at about 5-7yrds. This has only began within the last two hundred rounds. Had the gun for years and it always ran great.

Included are pictures of the ejector with obvious peening on the face. Im fearing this might be the issue. What does everyone think?

Indeed this. Extractor springs are fairly cheap, and replacing it has a much less chance of complications. Out of curiosity, it kinda looked like your extractor is sitting a little high from the face of the bolt. However, I don't have a 47 bolt in front of me so I may be mis-remembering how far the extractor sticks out.

It must've just been the camera angles, as from that perspective it (the extractor) doesn't look like it's out of whack. Let us know if the new spring works. Hopefully that'll get you fixed up.
>> No. 103626 ID: 8c968b
how long have you had this thing? The ejector looks suspiciously beat, like shit has chipped off on the corner. I don't know if it is enough to effect the function but even on my relatively high round count AK's, it doesn't look like that. It is smooth with a shiny spot where the case has been hitting.

That aside, if you have another working AK handy. You should try and compare the position of the ejector's front face to that one. I had a very VERY troublesome AKS74 that always had ejection issues (stovepipes mostly). The ejector was sitting way back compared to the ejector on my other AK. I had to grind off the spot welds and re-weld on a new ejector rail further up (didn't know how to weld/have a welder at the time, other than a spot welder). It works great now.

So Grumpier left me a pile of muzzle loaders - all are reproductions - some flintlock, some cap-n-ball, some Civil War, some frontiersman... I helped make some of these guns when I was a kid and shot the Hell out of them.

Trouble is I don't remember the details. FF powder for the barrel, FFF for the pan? How many grains of FF do I start with?

I've been told there's a rough formula that for a .35 caliber you start with 35 grains, for a .50 caliber, 50 grains and so on. That seems grossly too easy. I can mic out all the barrels and get exact calibers, but assume I have quite a few. Any good starting tips on what I should be buying and how much I should be loading?

Will take some pics soon, but for now, here's a generic one I stole from the Interbutts.

I'm going to hijack this. Not muzzle loading, but I shot my Pietta 1860 yesterday for the first time yesterday. I'm a total n00b when it comes to black powder.

1) I cleaned up using a mix of vinegar and water (shooting Pyrodex) using an old toothbrush, cleaning rod, and a copper wire (for the nipple holes). Is there some better solution for cleaning up Pyrodex? Also, how urgent is it to neutralize the salts? I cleaned it same day but I didn't wash it at the range immediately after shooting.

2) I topped each cylinder with bore butter because I had read you need to "season" new barrels. Long-term, how much lubricant should you be shooting?

3) Hard to say, but how many shots/fowling accumulate before it begins to affect accuracy? Trying to decide if it's worth bringing a whole cleaning kit to the range.

I heard a neat trick to dial in your powder is to get a tarp and just shoot over it. Any presence of unburnt powder should indicate that you should use less and adjust from there.

I've also been using FFF powder as primer in my flintlock with less than moderate success. Would recommend FFFF to prime the pan

What is meant by a "muzzle-loading bolt action?"
>> No. 103578 ID: 72cb51
They are also called "in-line muzzle-loaders" where the bolt's firing pin strikes the percussion cap you place over the nipple when you open the bolt.

At Ares, Eugene Stoner worked on the FARC-3 rifle. Clearly has some influences of the AR-18 and the Stoner 63, but I can't find much about it. Anyone have any good sources or pictures?

> Two of the most interesting articles cover guns that never caught on, the FN CAL, and the even more exotic, FARC-3.

> FARC-3 1986The FARC-3 was the “assault rifle of tomorrow” in 1986, and we guess it still is. The resemblance to the AR-18 and Stoner 63 is come by honestly enough, for the FARC was also a Gene Stoner design. Funded by DARPA and built by the Ohio company ARES, the FARC acronym stood for Future Assault Rifle Concept, and the gun used an AK-ish operating system, with striker rather than hammer fire, and then-novel plastic magazines. The article predicted that the idea of plastic magazines, at least, was here to stay.

Yeah, reverse image search got me that much. But other than that? Very little.
Which is odd. It looks like an interesting rifle that's a significant departure from the AR15, AR18 or Stoner 63.

One of these glorious motherfuckers is sitting on my bed waiting to be cleaned right now.

don't know what it is?

Get $450.

Now imagine that it was an AK "pistol" chambered in 9mm, taking beretta 92 magazines, with an optional glawk adapter.

Now imagine that it show extremely well, because 9mm doesn't have recoil in a gun this heavy, and didn't give two shits what you try to feed it because it's... still an AK at heart.

I wish 7.62x25 firearms were more prevalent, or even in current production for stuff like PCCs and maybe the odd bolt action for shits and giggles. It's such a forgotten gem of a caliber, especially with the surplus that's still relatively available.

I am also a little leery of Chiappa. I have never seen one gun made by them that didn't feel like a cheap pellet gun that shot real ammo.

I think it's a super fun concept, but also super fucking ugly. I'd love to see one SBR'd and with chopped down Krinkov furniture...but at that point, you're probably spending MP5-clone money.

The replaceable magwell is a cool idea, though. I'd love to see people 3D print new magwells for all sorts of guns - M&Ps, CZs, various H&Ks, etc.
>> No. 103510 ID: eb2308
This doesn't. I normally wouldn't bother with them, butI had the chance to fuck with a friends pak-9 beforeI bought mine.

I feels like what it is-and AK with the stock cut off and a tiny barrel so the ATF doesn't get scared.

It's not even a changeable magwell. There's a plastic adapter over a standard AK magwell. Remove it and I can lock my AK mags in just fine, though it won't feed for obvious reasons.

Plus side, you actually could 3D print new adapters if you wanted, they just pop on and off when you want to switch from beretta to glock and back.

Yeah, that's what I was thinking. I heard about the magwells being held in by a standard AK mag release. Very clever. It's a pity it's hard to swap barrels on AKs, otherwise you could have a blast with caliber swaps on these things.

I wonder how difficult it would be to swap out the furniture for something more classic looking. A threaded muzzle would be nice too.

I'm filled with the need to fill a void in my collection (and life): I want a high quality shotgun.

This quest started with trying to find (or make) a suitable classic looking Ithaca 37 (either already SBS, or make it into one). That didn't go anywhere. Ithaca doesn't export to euroland, and I'm having trouble finding a suitable donor gun to SBS (or even to find someone willing to SBS the gun for me since due to regulations it has to be reproofed etc, meaning paperwork & wasted time going to the test bench/proof house which would cost more than the actual cutting & refinishing).

Other alternatives were visited:
Browning has an Ithaca sibling, so that was the first stop. Various features and components were not really to my liking though, missing that special M37 look.
Mossbergs have a handy lefty friendly safety, so I looked at those next. Turns out their finish is really shitty.
Remingtons, well, let's not even go there. I've seen too many Remington things fail in the past 10 years that I'm not willing to touch them anymore.
Winchester was next. SXP is a basic no nonsense shotty made in Turkey, but turns out it's actually has more than it's share of problems if jewtoob is to be believed. Including at least two instances of slamfiring with the safety on. So that's out.

With time, interests shifted and eventually brought me to the Benelli M3 Tactical (~20", ghost ring sights, classic stock) & Benelli M3 Entry (~14", ghost ring sights, usually telescopic stock). Because why the fuck not? It's both a pump and a semi, filling two needs at once.

Bad news everyone. The store just contacted me to say Benelli changed their mind and that they won't be available in May and could not say if they would import it in the future or not.

Benelli M3 Tactical remains available though, so that question is if I should wait & keep pushing, or just settle for the full length Tactical.

Hey man, life is too short to settle for cheap shit.

I've grown to accept that I'm an elitist jerk. Aside from just high quality guns, I really appreciate overengineered and mechanically interesting guns.
Which is not to say that some cheap guns can't be great in their own right, obviously. I'm not that far gone...
