Has any of you used H&K P2000 irl? How do you like it?
>> No. 105427 ID: c3b8cf
I've shot one in .40, but it was 5+ years ago. Felt like a small USP, more or less. Don't remember much more about it one way or another.

It is nice that you don't need an adapter for the rail like the USP though.

Any of you have these videogame guns?
Also, what other revolvers are there that were intended for modern service and were more or less successful than R8?
I know the French used one and picrelated .500 Russian tanker anchor can be found on the net but it probably never went anywhere.

And then there's the close relative of the QSPR, the Russian OTs-38 silent revolver. Also using a captive-piston cartridge, it fires a 7.62x42mm SP-4 round with a mild steel projectile, supposedly accurate to 50m. Interestingly, the OTs-38 is an underbarrel pistol, firing from the bottom chamber in the cylinder much like the Chiappa Rhino and Mateba. The same cartridge is also used in the PSS semiauto pistol and the NS-1 scout pistol-knife.

I own an (apparently discontinued? There was a lawsuit or something, I'm not sure but it's not for sale anymore, it's a weird situation) ATI TACSX2 which is one of those Turkish-made semiauto shotguns and when I was able to get my hands on some Aguila minishells (birdshot) it cycled them reliably (this was after the break-in period). That was only two boxes though, I just can't get minishells locally.

I've read that Winchester 1300s can reliably feed the rounds, as well as 1897s.
>> No. 105423 ID: 815268
I have one. No mini-shells yet tho. I also got a Mesa Tactical 6 shot aluminum side saddle too.

  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.

This image is definitely more grainy as we had to close the aperture down quite a bit to have enough depth of field just to get the chance of getting a bullet anywhere near the focal zone. Since we wanted a fast shutter and we couldn't make the sun any brighter, we had to bump up the ISO.

Since we don't have any fancy triggering equipment, we had to do it the old fashion blind luck way, so many images are just brass in the air and like a butterfly off in the distance.

The E-510 can take four or five images per second for a few seconds, my buddy can shoot about that fast, so we tried to line things up. We took turns shooting the gun and trying different angles to get a good chance of landing a snapshot just at the right time, so this led to magdumping over 600 rounds and taking 500 pictures. Most of them aren't really any good, but we did catch a few bullets and had fun emptying mags.

The Shadow 2 really did make this kind of "test" enjoyable. That SAO flat trigger is a thing of beauty.

So I've been shopping around for a CZ pistol for a while now, but some of the finer points escape me between a few of the models. There's the Shadow, but it's different than the SP01 Shadow, both are different compared to the Shadowline, and so on. There's the Shadow Tac II, then stuff like the 75 Tactical Sport, and then Czechmate, so what the hell is this clusterfuck about? Their website isn't much help being slow, messy, disorganized, and not exactly easy to compare model to model.

I'm particularly interested in the Shadow and Shadow 2 pistols, and I am planning on installing an SAO flat trigger into whatever CZ pistol ends up being chosen. It'll be for range pew pew so practicality isn't exactly high on the list and I have no trouble with racking in-frame CZ slides. I would appreciate any info on these things, especially shit that isn't exactly obvious or often covered in reviews/product descriptions.

Well this was a good purchase.

Put a wee bit over a thousand rounds through it, only issue was when the loctite didn't hold on the reset travel screw for the trigger. I fixed that and the gun ran like a clock even as the day went on, magdump after magdump (more on that in another thread, I will explain).

Fired three or four boxes of Barnaul, not all seen here obviously. It's a bit warmer than the rest, and quite a bit dirtier.

The "remanufactured" canada-made stuff was meh, had a round that was poorly resized feel funny. The gun cycled it, but I felt it stutter when the action was closing. Despite this, it still ran. Furthermore, I had one almost-squib that made me open the gun up and check the bore, thankfully no issues.

The PMC was good, ran smooth, and was accurate.

The bag at the top left-ish was filled with 333 rounds of 147 grain polymer-coated stuff that was soft shooting and reliable, with no hiccups of any kind, I'll be using that stuff again as it is cheap and good.

>PMC was accurate
It was a strong 40 yards, possibly 45 as the target was a bit past the 40 yard line, but I would not call it 50 yards. I rested the rail of the gun on a sandbag and fired a 10 shot string, the sights were right on.

This indicates how much more accurate the Shadow 2 is compared to me, and why it was most likely a better choice in terms of price/performance over the higher end race-gun stuff CZ makes.

For me anyway, a better shooter would obviously enjoy the more accurate CZs and also obviously get a better 10 shot group at this distance.

Dirty muzzle unrelated but I do want to direct you guys to a new thread I'll be making in a few minutes where I explain what the "all the magdumps" things was about.

Help me with knife harpenining?

so i got a sharpmaker and a swiss army knife OHT as my knife. i reground it and got burrs on both sides but can not get a sharp edge. what am i doing wrong? not removing the burr?
1 post omitted. Click Reply to view.
>> No. 103413 ID: 1b9ff7
the burr must be removed for sharpness. Bevel angle and polish are secondary to having two flat planes terminate cleanly. You can either use finer stones to work the burr off leaving a high polish edge, or strop it to break it off leaving a rougher but still very sharp edge
>> No. 103414 ID: 54180e
Its worth specifying 30 degrees INCLUSIVE, meaning 15 degrees from center for each edge (so as to not confuse the new guy), which is a nice slicer.

Swiss Army knives use a nice soft steel, theyre almost impossible to not get sharp.
Try slicing some paper, if it bites and tears the paper you got a toothy edge and some burs. In other steels this could be points of uneven carbides but being that the Victorinox has almost none to speak of its almost certainly a burr.
If it slices, but just not really well then your angle is probably too wide and the blade is too thick behind the edge.

As far as "regrinding" you wont be doing any regrinding or re profiling with a sharp maker. Just make sure you're letting the stones do the work and you focus on even strokes at the right angle.
>> No. 105389 ID: bb86e7
The one time i tried to sharpen a really soft blade, the bur was more like the entire edge rolling over, which is what I suspect might be happening here. Solution was to go from 30 degrees inclusive to 40. Was using a sharpmaker on the original Cold Steel Spike. Neat design, crap steel.

I was supposed to shoot a full auto FAL (belgian receiver, Israeli LAR kit) this weekend. Alas, it ended up becoming a bolt action .308. Gun failed to cycle, the bolt would come back about half an inch after firing. Fiddled with the gas system to no avail. My friend will need to take it somewhere to get it fixed, most likely.

On the other hand, I did get to try out a Colt Anaconda and a S&W 629 V-comp Performance Center side by side. The compensator and hogue grips made the 629 very easy to shoot. The Colt was a touch smoother all around, but the grips didn't help with the recoil.

Well That would have been a damn fun time. Had he field stripped it recently? Gas plug might be upside down?
>> No. 105397 ID: c3b8cf

He said he had properly stripped and lubed it, but I dunno. It was only his second time taking it out. As far as I know the plug was open but I don't know how much he was able to adjust the gas port. I do recall the port was sticky.

I was also there the first time he took the gun out. It has fired exactly one mag in full auto and hasn't worked since. This guy is working towards the battle rifle trifecta. He has a f/a HK91, the FAL, and a M14 on transfer.
