  Why have them? Why didn't they go with a regular telescopic bolt carrier or even something that has the spring overlapping with the the barrel?

  I always thought the LR-300 seemed really cool, both in function and aesthetic. I think Todd Jarrett used one in competition for a while and there are videos of the dual-recoil spring system it uses. If memory serves, both springs are retained by tiny little clips that are a bitch to take down. When Allan Zitta designed it, I'm sure he took sturdiness into account on those tiny clips, but it's hard to argue with a much larger, thicker recoil spring that's isolated from all of the barrel's heat and barrel harmonics.

  the sig mcx seems to take the concept of a contained recoil system in the receiver like the LR300 into the current year. it seems pretty cool from having handled some of the variants but i can't speak for how well SIG USA pulled it off. i guess it was good enough to be adapted by the UK metro police, lol

Well there is the AR-18 and AR-180...

Really I wish someone was manufacturing reciever flats and parts kits for them. I would totally build one; I think they are quite a bit sexier than an AR-15.
>> No. 108178 ID: f2172d
I feel that the AR-18 is a tiny bit more fiddly than the AR-15 when it comes to field strip; aligning the recoil springs, BCG, charging handle just right takes a certain touch. It's hard to explain, but it's easy to misalign the BCG and bolt when re-assembling the gun. It's not necessarily more reliable, either, although most of the malfunctions I have experienced with the 18 were magazine related (either the original Armalite magazine, or converted AR-15 USGI mags). Also, good luck when parts break. My gunsmith took 8 months to hand-file a new, more robust auto-sear assembly when mine broke.

Years ago I posted a AR-18 field strip thread here, but I think it's been lost to the ages.

I just returned from my first IPSC Shotgun match, the Shotgun World Shoot in France where I placed atleast above last place. Anyone else here with who actually shoot matches in IPSC/USPSA/2-Gun/3-Gun or similar?

No issues so far. The gun is a pleasure to shoot rapidly. Then again, I haven't mag dumped it heavily. I try to post a new shooting video every sunday.

Be honest, the way I did text with the stage brief in the last video, was it obnoxious having it go all Star Wars intro like that, or was it okay? I wanna include scores and stage briefs, so people have more context than just "man moved, man pulled trigger, man moved gun, man pulled trigger again"

I think the titles and subtitles both were fine.
>> No. 108061 ID: 758a23
I don't care for the pre-stage title cards. When you're competing, you have to plan your shoot. When you're watching someone else, you just want to see the shooting. Post-stage results are fine. Videos are a moving-picture visual medium, it's not really practical to have people read things.

Subtitles are fine.

One thing you could try is doing video of your dry run before the stage where you could point out the targets and go "pew pew" or talk through it. That way you could compare your plan to your execution.

Not too bad. Seems like the whole match wouldn't take too long. When we do a single stage with ~25 shooters and 3-4 runs, it's a 7 hour day including setup, lunch, and takedown.

I've finally decided that I'm going to pull the trigger and build an AR-15 (of sorts; SCR Lower). I've set aside money for the lower, just waiting on Brownells or Budsgunshop to have them instock again. In the mean time I'm going to build up the upper, 100% from scratch (well from parts because I'm not a machinist).

Why not just buy an upper? I actually want to really learn something out of this.

Why an SCR lower? I broke my hand long before joining the Marine Corps. Being young and dumb and not wating to miss work I would duck tape my hand into a ball for work (pulling rocks out of the blueberry barrens) and then tape my fingers and hand out on make shift splints after work. Suffice to say it never healed right and now shooting a true pistol grip actually kind of hurts. Straightish stocks work much better for me.

Has anyone here assembled their own upper?
Any good guides to read?
Manufactures to avoid? (obviously avoid poverty pony stuff)
Manufactures you like?

Over all I'm going for an upper that looks somewhat milspec, sans the forward assist (SCR bolt can't utilize one) and carry handle. Almost mini-14ish in overall asthetics.

Pic semi-related. I'm thinking of a wood buttstock because #woodissexyasfuck

My city is being gentrified so jobs are getting shittyer and rent is going up. And since gentrification means your comunity gets replaced with well off liberals, all these new voters are making voting to make all kinds of new fees and taxes on anything gun related.

Only $16,100 at auction. My dream BAR would be an Ohio Ordnance Works HCAR with a deep blued finish, full-auto closed bolt trigger mech, and chambered in some lighter caliber in the 6.5 to 7mm range.

I've got a HCAR and it's fucking awesome. It's incredibly loud with the surefire muzzle brake, but hardly recoils. With a lighter cartridge, it would be even better.

I'll never be able to afford the kind of large mobilized artillery I fetishize. I'll never let off all eight 0.50 barrels at the same from my P-47. I will never BBBBRRRRRTTTTTT out of a gun barrel. I'll never be in the conning tower of a battleship when it fires a full broadside at that other battleship halfway hidden under the horizon. I will never turn the polished brass crank of a gattling gun and listen to it not quite drowning out the war cries and thundering hooves of a surprise attack by indians on horseback.

I'd still want to see tests. Buy one, put it in a backpack and fill the backpack with sand. Then shoot it with a powerful handgun and see how it performs. Also, it won't stop rifle rounds, which you will need a ceramic or steel plate for.

At a minimum, tell your kid to turn the backpack to the front during a shooting. Textbooks will do a lot to slow/stop bullets. From experience, 2 inches of phone book will stop a .22lr round. Obviously something like a .50AE will still be lethal, see the woman who got charged with manslaughter for killing her boyfriend after he asked her to shoot him in the chest with a Desert Eagle (while holding a book).

I'm not sure if "Ballistic Level IIIA Lab Tested" actually means anything. Since these are probably meant to be sold off to scared mothers, I'm guessing they used as little kevlar as possible to theoretically get to IIIA level and then skipped on the expensive process of actually getting anything NIJ certified.

They could still work but I'd want to see results for myself.

If it were me doing a big bore rolling block, I'd be tempted by building a 10 or 12ga mag/supermag with slugs.

Comparatively much lower pressure and you've still got a big bang with a monster piece of lead going down range. Would be handy for stopping a charging waterbuffalo too.

That´s a rifle round though, no? Smooth-bores are interesting in that, as the guy said, they don´t swage the bullet and don´t heat up as much and the length of the bullet not being an issue since you don´t have to figure out the twist rate. You can theoretically go crazy with hard exotic alloys since you don´t have to machine the rifling.

No. 108081 ID: b27d97 hide watch quickreply [Reply]
  Why have rifling in pistols, that are designed specifically for civilian edc and self-defense? Wouldn't smoothbores be a better solution since the range at which such pistols are used is minimal and you'd get the benefit of slightly higher muzzle velocity out of the same barrel length.
>> No. 108084 ID: f2172d
In the US, non-blackpowder smoothbore pistols are typically classified as a 'Any Other Weapon', subject to the rules of the National Firearms Act. Mostly has to do with the ATF considering them as short-barreled shotguns.

Google New England Firearms Handi-Gun, for reference.

> Wouldn't smoothbores be a better solution

No. Tanks use smoothbore guns to accommodate the fin stabilized discarding sabot rounds. Rifling works really well to stabilize standard projectiles. I can't recall the name, but there was that company that put out smoothbore ARs with little nerf football shaped bullets.

> since the range at which such pistols are used is minimal

Accuracy is important. In a civilian defensive scenario, the saying goes that "There's a lawsuit attached to every stray round." Also, you don't always get to choose your engagement distance. Think about the police officers responding to the North Hollywood shootout.

> and you'd get the benefit of slightly higher muzzle velocity out of the same barrel length.

Pistols really don't have enough velocity to matter. You're throwing a chunk of lead that will impact a target and make a 9-12 mm hole in meat, probably break bones, and penetrate some light barriers. Really unless you hit something important like the heart, central nervous system, or some big arteries, it may not stop an attacker.
