Stamp for this came in around 2 months ago. Paid way too much for it. It's got a brother on the way (in better condition) that I paid a much more reasonable price for. Going to have a leather harness custom made so I can dual wield them.

Accuracy problems with which, .308 or 6.5?

That's really surprising, the SCAR 16 and 17 are both MOA guns.
>> No. 109882 ID: b73635
Looking around a little bit online, I don't see anything other than 1-MOA for the SCAR 20. This wasn't some gun store fudd lore, was it?

Also, I haven't shot since last September. Fucking terrible, I know.

He isn't really wrong. It's IRC if you took everything wrong with the rest of modern software and applied it to IRC.
>centralized, woefully insecure, closed source, runs in a browser for some reason, the PRC has a stake
Unfortunately, serious money is backing all of the above, so the only objections you can make that really stick are "it's for faggot autist weirdos" and "it's under-moderated". Which, coincidentally, are some of the only remaining similarities it has with IRC! Funny, huh?

It was .308 specific

Guy went through some different rounds, called them about it, I'd have to go way back and look it up now. Searching online so far the only thing I've seen that was close was inch and a half.

If I run into it I'll bring it back here with a screenshot if possible.

If I were choosing between a .308 and a 6.5 Creedmoor in the same platform, is there any reason to go with the .308? With modern bullet design, does the advantage of more bullet mass do enough at closer ranges in terms of terminal ballistics to outweigh the well known external ballistics advantages of 6.5?

I bought a Ruger Precision Rifle in .308 because I thought it would be more interesting at shorter ranges. Turns out it's just more shitty at all ranges. My buddy picked up the 6.5, and it's so much better. The biggest benefit to me was lower recoil. The RPR is bolt-automatic, so there's nothing to dampen recoil except the rubber butt pad on your shoulder. The .308 is a proper kick the the shoulder. 6.5CM lets you know there's recoil, but it's really not that bad.

6.5CM ammo has come down in price quite a bit, the bullet selection is good, and it fits in .308 length receivers. My next project (if I ever get back into gun projects) was to build an AR-10 in 6.5CM.
>> No. 109886 ID: ddd160
Shaking it up and speaking from a fudd hunter/cheapass perspective, .308 win is still my personal preferred short action caliber for two major reasons beyond my built up infrastructure for the caliber that I don't even own anymore. I can load a little bit heavier projectile for that slight edge on penetration and loaded ammo and quality components are more numerous, particularly now with most people understandably flocking to 6.5 creedmoor.

I can weight sort lake city brass, and often source pulled or surplus quality .30 caliber projectiles ie nosler partition cosmetic seconds, federal fusion etc. .264 is definitely scarcer. If I want to get really fancy, Lapua brass is much easier to come by for it from secondhand sources whether once fired or unused sitting in the garage.

I can walk into Powder River Taxidermy in Broadus, MT aka nowhere and buy an overpriced box of shit ass 150 grain .308 win core lokts in a pinch, probably not so much for the 6.5 yet.
I never thought that was a real problem until I was stationed in New York and had to find even .280 Remington for my hipster .280 Ackley Improved since all my ammo got left at home.

From a logical/ballistics standpoint I absolutely agree that 6.5 creedmoor is a more efficient, better overall cartridge though.
>> No. 109888 ID: 58727a
Absolutely! 6.5CM is superior ballistically overall, but .308 Win has better logistics.
>> No. 109906 ID: bc1daf

In this coof environment, 6.5 creed has actually been easier to find for me.
>> No. 109907 ID: 322089
.308 due to logistics. Also if you tire of the (308) rifle you have, you can ditch it and be more likely to get a different one in the same caliber and not need to ditch your ammo too. You can just transition easier.

I've bought my first gun illegally off some hippie guy.
It's a .38 Colt Detective Special with black rubber grips. I wanted to check out the year it was produced in but the serial number doesn't match up. Mine has two letters "SA" and four digits. I looked it up on Colt's website and it says the gun should be Single Action Army. Wat means?

No, it's exactly the same but the barrel bushing on this one is particularly stiff to rote. I have to hit it with something plastic to make it move.

Do you try to remove the plug/recoil spring first before removing the slide, or the other way around?
>> No. 109904 ID: ddf784
Plug and spring before the slide. But even when the plug and spring is out and the slide is removed when I try to take the barrel out and need to rotate the bushing to the other side it's still stiff in the slide. I dunno, maybe I have very weak fingers but I think the bushing is probably not OEM and is too tight in the slide or something.

Are there any other online stores that sell AR15 kits and uppers cheaper than PSA? This isn't cheap anymore at all, fucking hell. I should've bought a whole bunch when they were only $299 a few months ago!
>> No. 109841 ID: f2172d
Not really, no. Supply still hasn't caught up with the demand of two panics back to back.

My LGS is using Geiselle BCGs in their AR builds, simply because they can't find anything else that's less expensive right now.

>cheaper than PSA
Why would you want to do that? I understand building a budget AR and all, but don't go bottom of the bargain barrel. You'll spend more time trying to fix QC issues than shooting reliably. At least go PSA CHF barrel with a carpenter steel MPI bolt.
>> No. 109856 ID: b09df8
PSA is tough to beat on price and in my experience they're definitely good enough.

When I bought the PBE AR Mk1 lower years ago, I went with a PSA lower parts kit. I very specifically recall the kit missing (or me losing, to be honest. It was my first AR and I was building it in my living room) one of the very small springs, either a trigger spring or the bolt release spring. I emailed them about it saying it was missing from the kit and they immediately emailed me a replacement, no questions asked. They paid 48 cents or whatever for a stamp to send me a part worth a penny without question. I felt pretty good about it and them and they've had my business ever since.
>> No. 109874 ID: 20aad9
Delta Team Tactical out of Utah usually has atleast one kit in the $300 range, but for the prices PSA has now, Delta Team has kits that are fairly impressive.

I've built at least 20 guns between DTT and PSA.

I haven't been to this image board in years, so I'm not sure if this is appropriate to ask about, but I really need some information and it's too late at the moment to call anyone. I'm trying to apply for a concealed handgun permit in the state of Louisiana. I have served in the military and the application form states that this means I can provide my DD214 discharge certificate as proof of firearms training in lieu of proof of attending a civilian training course. However, the application form has a field asking for an instructor number. I have very little idea of what to put there. Would that be a number on the DD214 or something on my Joint Services Transcript? I've been putting this off for years because it's so convoluted. If no one has any answers here, I'll just call a licensed instructor and ask. Thank you.

I got a concealed carry license in Arkansas and let me tell you that you are worrying over nothing. Go to that Saturday firearms instruction course. It will mostly be helpful instructing you over the laws of where you can pack your heat and the general law of self-defense and when you can use deadly force. The actual target shooting (for me in Arkansas and Colorado) was pretty much a formality. Just hit the target a few times. Qualify with an automatic pistol because some states will restrict your carry to revolvers only if you bring a revolver.

Am I nuts for wanting this? Having a belt-fed .223 rifle sounds fun and I can pull it off for less than $5k. The M249 has a pretty simple sheet metal design and there just aren't that many other options for a belt-fed rifle out there.

The RPD is belt fed and feeds from the left side. The sights are of a standard AK pattern but with added windage controls. The ammunition belt is typically held in a steel drum attached to a bracket underneath the receiver. There is also a cleaning rod which runs across the left side of the receiver.

The belt for the RPD is in 2 50 round sections which attach in the middle. The 2 sections are non-disintegrating however and hangs off of the receiver. The belts are rolled up and place into the drum, the rattle from the loose rounds is very noticeable.

Last time I priced just the parts for this you're looking at 20k and that's for semi auto.
Just the feed mechanism is a dick kicking $5k. https://hkparts.net/product/hk21e-feed-mechanism-complete-p584.htm
The 21 is so fucking neat but it was an answer to a question no one asked. The 21 didn't do anything someone else wasn't doing better or more local.
Shits and giggles I looked up Rock island auction and they sold a transferable one for 32k.
You're in luck otb has one in stock for 35k but it's the long boi so it will be another 3k to cut down that barrel. https://www.reddit.com/r/guns/comments/ffg1nk/i_see_people_posting_for_308_day_but_i_think_it/fjyg3mx/
