556 doggos were sacrificed to the murder /k/ube for this holy relic of a weapon.

>The term “rifle” means a weapon designed or redesigned, made or remade, and intended to be fired from the shoulder and designed or redesigned and made or remade to use the energy of the explosive in a fixed cartridge to fire only a single projectile through a rifled bore for each single pull of the trigger,

Turns out it's straight grooves. 3-4 MOA with standard ammo but apparently they developed drag stabilized ammo that does better. 300 Blackout.

So it's really hard to get anything for .587" bore but my buddy has some old lead bullets for his 577 Snider black powder.

I figured 170 grains of Trail Boss might be able to get a 520 grain lead bullet out the barrel.

The results were... Interesting.

Yes, the difference in recoil energy is why I asked. I'd suspect that pistol recoil is sharper and quicker, but 14.5 would be heavier (though the weight of the gun & the brake may mitigate that). However, a handgun has "give" in the hands and arms that are holding it, especially with the super big magnums. Your shoulder when prone is going to move way less.
>> No. 106843 ID: 19518e
The PTRD has 3" of stock travel for recoil mitigation and to cam the bolt handle as to start extraction so that should have a similar effect.

It's also why long eye relief is important.

WEBM related. Quite a simple way to get this single-shot to help the shooter extract a case. Since the cartridge is so large, having a stuck case would be problematic as the force required to unstick it might be quite high. Having the bolt handle kicked up by a ramped surface is a good way to unstick a case and it doubles as a way to dampen felt recoil. The spring in the stock is pretty stiff, but if you're in a shooting position you can compress it without too much effort just by pulling the gun in your shoulder with both arms.

We can tell that hard extraction was a concern, as the PTRD-41 cocks on closing like an Enfield. This reduces the force required to open the bolt as the shooter doesn't have to cock the firing pin on opening. When throwing a new cartridge in there, the shooter can take a running start and throw the bolt into battery; the bolt will cock on closing mostly under inertia of the bolt's forward movement as the shooter pushes it closed. Couple this with the bolt handle ramp, and we can see that the PTRD was designed with care for the user in many respects.

It's quite fast and easy and it is a well thought-out system.
>> No. 106848 ID: e0deaf

I knew of the travel, but I always assumed it was merely a "starter" for the unlocking. Certainly not past an inch.

Neat to see your webm.

With all that in place, I'd expect the scope to hold up fine.
>> No. 106849 ID: 19518e
Depending on the shooter, his position, and the ammo, the bolt can get enough inertia to open completely and kick the empty case out but that happening is basically a bonus. Most of the time the shooter will simply sweep his right hand back to grab the handle where ever it could be to ensure the bolt is open and the empty is out so a new round can be shoved in.

Having said that, I will say that it is pretty cool when it does run open by itself and you feel/hear the case ding-dong'ing on the ground so you chuck a new round in there while grabbing the bolt handle so you can throw it home and close it in a fastsmooth motion.

Anyone deal with them before? Recommend, not recommend, any better hybrid out there that fits my requirements?

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.

Funnily enough, my dealer picked up a MG34 parts kit this week. The barrel is in surprisingly good shape, waffenamt and everything. He's debating whether to get a semi-receiver from TNW and build, or just flip the kit alone.

Heeey I have one of these!

I had issues with the original sear on the bolt carrier wearing down after ~250 rounds from the manu. Advise to inspect, check for potential slipping while the bolt is camming. Replacement seems fine so far, but I don't have too many rounds through it.

Also, the milling was very rough on my charging handle slot, and the handle would get stuck on it until I filed it down a little, then everything runs great. Also had some feeding issues for the first couple hundred rounds, then it works fine. The rifle prefers a thicc grease, they recommend, and I love, TW25B.

I have a very knowledgeable friend coming to fit the gun up and later teach me the subtleties. He keeps belt feds and shit running as a job and has owned like half a dozen of various canuck-legal belt-feds so he knows what's up.

You input was actually basically what he told me in the short conversation we had on the subject, so your experience is quite typical. We are actually thinking about making replacement semi-auto sears from better steel as the standard ones seem to all be quite soft.

Looks like the aftermarket is already working on putting a red do on it.

I handled one recently. It seemed nicely made, the trigger was good, and the low bore axis is nice. I wouldn't buy one because beta testing a gun from an established gun company isn't fun - just ask CZ P10C or SIG *insert any new model they've made post 2005 or so* owners.

Hello all.

I'm trying to find a new handguard for my AR. I'm not terribly picky but do specifically want a few features:
Free Float
Cannot be used as a cheesegrater.

I'm looking at pulling the trigger next week or so on the pictured Yankee Hill but would like other recommendations.

Woah, I am loving that flat top mount free float setup, I like that setup because you don't have to buy a raiser for your red dot sight.

I see their gen 2 and 3 doesn't have the flat top mount.

Extra bonus for triangle tube

The flat top mount should be compatible, mine's a gen 2, but they've got top mounts for gen 3 as well.

So that top rail piece is an add-on? So that top rail can go on any size just have to pick the right length, that's pretty cool
>> No. 106751 ID: 181cef
Yep, it attaches to the flat top of the upper receiver like the Vltor CASV, and attaches to the hand guard via screws and plates inside the hand guard. Needless to say it's easier to add the top rail when the hand guard is not attached to the rifle.

Love my BCM KMR handguard on my PBEAR MkII. Lightweight, not too thick, a good fit for my hands. They also have the Mlok MCMR now. Either should come in under your budget. Just I would suggest if you go with the KMR that you get the aluminum "Alpha" version rather than the magnesium alloy version. It's fine if you're not gonna put anything load bearing on it, but keymod is already weaker than mlok, no need to exacerbate the issue. (I know one OPERATOR who managed to rip off his vfg at the range with an original KMR)

7.92x33mm FAL Modification at GunLab
This is Pete’s , a friend of Gun Lab, version of a 7.92×33 rifle. His solution was to put in a new ejector block of his design with a spring loaded ejector. Then remove 0.900″ from the magazine to fit the 7.92×33 round.
With the last post we made on the 7.92×33 FN-FAL we showed a FAL that had a new ejector block and magazine made to allow the rifle to shoot 7.92×33. This post will show a different approach to reach the same conclusion, shooting 7.92×33. This series of photographs comes from another friend of Gun Lab and how he converted his rifle to use MP-44 magazines. This version the owner cut down the receiver by 0.900 and welded support plates to enlarge the magazine housing. http://www.thefirearmblog.com/blog/2015/08/11/7-92x33mm-fal-modification-at-gunlab/

The first prototype of what was then the FN Universal Carbine, but that would become the FN FAL (Light Automatic Rifle), was not chambered for the familiar 7.62×51 NATO, nor its competitor round the .280 British, but in the German 7.92x33mm Kurzpatrone round developed in 1942 for the MKb. 42(H) (the predecessor of the famous Sturmgewehr).
- The FN “Universal Carbine”, prototype No. 1. This was the only rifle in the FAL family chambered at the factory for 7.92x33mm Kurz. Image source: gunlab.net
