The hand nugget is the worst gun I've ever shot. I did manage to get 3/18 hits on a torso size target at 100 yards. DOUBLE ACTION. That also meant double finger, as one trigger finger isn't enough to actually pull the trigger.

  I'm done with .22lr all together.

I originally was looking into air guns as a replacement plinker because of .22 prices being forever inflated when I discovered big bore air rifles and learned I can shoot them cheaper than .22.

I'm now more interested in these than I am with guns considering there's not a lot to get excited about in the firearm world. While airguns are experiencing leaps and bounds in tech and they're only getting better.

Here we present a S.A.C.M. (Societe Alsacienne de Constructions Mecaniques) Model 1935A Pistol, made circa the 1940s. This is a semi-automatic pistol chambered for the 7.65M Longue (.32 Long) cartridge. It was developed by the Swiss Charles Petter and used by the French Army (not to mention the Nazi Germans during their occupation of France) in several wars and was the official sidearm of the French military until 1950. This single action semi-automatic pistol design was purchased by Sig, which would eventually use the patents to produce the legendary P210 pistol. The SACM, however, would go onto see combat in the First Indochina War (Vietnam 1946-54) and the Algerian War (1954-62).

The left side of this specimen reads “Mle 1935A” and “S.A.C.M.” It comes in a very nice corduroy lined brown leather holster originally made for a Tokarev.

Comparing the Hudson to the Sig226 in terms of bore axis. I lined up the backstrap and triggers. Quite a difference. The weight on these two is about the same at 34oz, despite the Sig having an aluminum frame while the Hudson has a steel frame.

  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.

What's this? A fixed barrel, split slide pistol with swappable top rail? Supposedly gas operated?

Looks super neat. I hope it catches on but gas operated pistols haven't so far, so...

Before I knew it was gas operated, I imagined it being some sort of on-its-head tilting action, like your typical short-recoil pistol action but turned upside down somehow so that the rear of the barrel is pivoted up instead of down during unlocking.

I wonder if they could use a rotating barrel system like the Beretta PX4.

I shot a PX4 and found it unremarkable. Pretty much identical to any other polymer frame hammer fired gun.

Plenty of options for the action, but it's a testament to Browning's prowess that most guns use a derivative of his system. From delayed blowback like the Avenger was (https://www.m1911.org/hogueavenger.htm) to the roller locked Korth PRS (https://kortharms.com/de/pistol-prs-5.html), there were plenty of options for fixed barrels.
I find it odd that they'd go for gas operated, but I'm curious about it anyway.

>I wonder if they could use a rotating barrel system like the Beretta PX4

It's a fixed barrel. A rotating barrel would ruin that idea.
>> No. 107502 ID: f2172d

I have never had a good experience with the PX4. I played with one that when you engaged the safety, half the time the hammer did not decock (although the concept of carrying a cocked and locked Beretta was amusing). The last time I fired one (about 3 months ago) I had several stoppages, mainly failure to extract.

Had the opportunity to test my reloads in an M9 this morning. The primers bulged a little indicating my reloads are too hot. I have 250 rounds left, I may still run them in my carbine and lesson learned load lighter next time. Anyone know if a CZ 75b can handle +P loads?

I used to have to push their polymer lowers when I worked in a gun shop. Chinciest shit ever. Cheap and lightweight, but very little aftermarket worked in it and they'd often crack at the pivot pin.

I just have a visceral reaction to their name now, especially when coupled with PSA.

I just noticed this about 0:37 in to my video when showing it to a friend. Appears to be a flash in the hand guards. Is this normal for PPC ARs? It makes sense that there could be unburned powder burning every so often out of the unused gas port, but how typical should this be?

While this is nothing to scoff at it bums me out a bit in comparison to the TSX. I wonder which soft point was used and whether it was bonded or not. I was going to warmly load up a few hundred of my pulled 62 grain federal fusions for my 10.5 inch braced pistol I keep handy in my truck, but if these are something great like a nosler partition vs a cheapo cup and core I'm afraid the performance out of my barrel length might be mediocre if that's as deep as a 14.5 inch could drive it.

Dat TSX though. Jesusth. I wish I could get a good source for them. I was able to get a couple thousand piece commercial bags of the 145 grain LRX's for my .280 AI for like 20 cents per boolit Hopefully some .224 diameter shows up on the market as such.

Cool pictures are one thing, interpreting the data is another.

DocGKR will even admit, not every round performed the same way. M855 for example is notorious for inconsistency with fragmentation.

Also be sure to assess your own requirements and needs based on what you think you'll need.
IE: "NONE of the fragmenting 5.56 mm OTM bullets, even the heavy 75 - 100 gr loads, offer acceptable performance through automobile windshield glass. Contrary to what many believe, M193 & M855 FMJ are not very good against glass; the best military 5.56 mm load against glass is 52 gr M995 AP, followed by the 62 gr Mk318 Mod0 OTM and 70 gr Optimal "brown tip" OTM."


Most are tested down to 10.4" at a minimum, sometimes shorter like 8.9".
