I'm filled with the need to fill a void in my collection (and life): I want a high quality shotgun.

This quest started with trying to find (or make) a suitable classic looking Ithaca 37 (either already SBS, or make it into one). That didn't go anywhere. Ithaca doesn't export to euroland, and I'm having trouble finding a suitable donor gun to SBS (or even to find someone willing to SBS the gun for me since due to regulations it has to be reproofed etc, meaning paperwork & wasted time going to the test bench/proof house which would cost more than the actual cutting & refinishing).

Other alternatives were visited:
Browning has an Ithaca sibling, so that was the first stop. Various features and components were not really to my liking though, missing that special M37 look.
Mossbergs have a handy lefty friendly safety, so I looked at those next. Turns out their finish is really shitty.
Remingtons, well, let's not even go there. I've seen too many Remington things fail in the past 10 years that I'm not willing to touch them anymore.
Winchester was next. SXP is a basic no nonsense shotty made in Turkey, but turns out it's actually has more than it's share of problems if jewtoob is to be believed. Including at least two instances of slamfiring with the safety on. So that's out.

With time, interests shifted and eventually brought me to the Benelli M3 Tactical (~20", ghost ring sights, classic stock) & Benelli M3 Entry (~14", ghost ring sights, usually telescopic stock). Because why the fuck not? It's both a pump and a semi, filling two needs at once.

It gets worse.

Through sheer desperation, I also contacted a local gunstore which is mostly focused on high price fudd hunting guns (Browning, Aya, Heym, Piotti, up to H&H and full custom guns). Turns out they just became Benelli importer.

The other guys which we were in contact with lost their import partnership with Benelli & that's why they can't deliver jack shit. So instead of being up front about that, they decided to just lie their fucking ass off?

I really don't know what to believe anymore, because Benelli hasn't updated their partner/dealer page yet.

But this is some seriously fucked up shit.

Gun Review: FN M249S Semi-Automatic SAW
FN Manufacturing has been cranking out weapons in Columbia, South Carolina for the U.S. military for years now, winning contracts for everything from the infantry man’s friend, the M4, through the explosively fun M240B. Up until last year the civilian side of the house had been forbidden from offering civvy-legal versions of their military guns — the closest we’d gotten was their FN-15 rifle released in 2014. But last year all that changed and the “Military Collector” series was born. Now the average American can purchase a proper M4 or M16, spec’ed out exactly the same as the military gets them (minus the full-auto setting, no matter what you may hear on MSNBC). The most awesome offering in this collection so far: the Military Collector M249S.
The original M249 was developed in the early 1970’s. The U.S. military had briefly fielded the Stoner 63 light machine gun (LMG) in Vietnam as a way to provide front line troops with a lighter machine gun that was easier to maneuver through the thick brush and jungles of the area, eventually looking to replace the much heavier M60 and M2. While the Stoner design had worked, the military wanted something better. A Belgian company called FN had been in development of their FN MINIMI LMG for a few years by the time the U.S. decided to look for a replacement, and in a head to head competition in 1980 their design beat out both H&K (HK21A1) as well as Colt (who just thickened the barrel on an M16 and called it good) for the contract.
Something to note about the M249S is that it is a bit different than the other offerings in the Military Collector series. Where the Military Collector M4 is identical to the as-issued version, the M249S is instead a mix-and-match version that has been cobbled together from different eras of the M249 to create the most visually appealing and enjoyable example of the firearm possible. The purist inside me is complaining, but the execution doesn’t leave much room for argument. http://www.thetruthaboutguns.com/2016/06/foghorn/gun-review-fn-m249s-semi-automatic-saw/

I have yet to hear of a range that has a micro/minigun for rent, outside of one of the major MG shoots. There are places to rent a M249 though. Also, prepare to pay out the ass to rent full autos. The local ranges around me charge $60 just to rent one, plus you must buy ammo from the range on top of that.

  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.

>Tanfoglio Stock 3 over a CZ, so I'll have to compare the two personally before I commit
I personally went with the CZ because it's more common, and seems to have a bit better aftermarket at least where I am. Obviously this is dependent on your personal situation and comparing them side by side is the way to go as the Tanfoglio 3 and the CZ are very similar but not identical.

How's the recoil sensation on the shorty?
The full length SVT's recoil is surprisingly mild, but how's the shortening affected the perceived recoil?
>> No. 105718 ID: 19518e
I keep drooling over it.

>How's the recoil sensation on the shorty?
From my experience, all else being equal (apart from a small weight difference), a shorter barrel firearm with a muzzle brake has a bit less recoil. From what I understand, the gas exiting the shorter barrel is at a higher pressure, and therefore flows through the muzzle brake with more energy, exaggerating the muzzle brake's effect.

This actually leaves me to avoid muzzle brakes with ports that divert gas upwards. In the best of cases, I find they actually push the muzzle down too much when a proper shooting stance is employed. The standard SVT-40 has a long barrel and doesn't have an in-line stock. The ports are cut to divert a bit of gas upwards, but the effect is very small. In my opinion the regular barrel length and the muzzle brake angled cuts are well matched to reduce recoil without pushing the barrel down below the target.

However, when the barrel is shortened to 19", the muzzle brake angled cuts do kick the barrel down. The recoil is even more mild than on the regular length barrel from what I can feel, but I've had to modify the ports on the muzzle brake.

Webm here >>102730 shows the shortened SVT-40 before the modifications to the muzzle brake. The webm here >>105690 shows the modified brake as the rifle is now.

tl;dr it's a very short shooting rifle, even more than before.

It's awesome on a single action 'cause you can let the recoil slip the gun up so the hammer's right there for re-cocking. I don't really think that's really super cool for anything that's not a single action revolver, but hey whatever floats your boat.

It is true but they aren't a very good choice for defense, you could use one for intimidation or to hurt a dude in light clothing but a can of pepper spray/CS is probably better both at stopping a threat and being non-lethal.

Traumats have a nasty reputation of being pretty random in terms of their damage. You can shoot someone, he won't give a shit and still beat you up or you'll shoot a guy in some weird spot without any intention, he'll die and then you're fucked.

As for actual weapons, I don't remember it well but from the top of my head you can get them for sporting purposes like bullseye, IPSC, etc but you normally don't care about that because I don't think you get to take those guns home. Maybe they changed it, I'll look into it.

Or you can get a smoothbore license. It will require medical papers from your local prevention center that say you aren't a registered nutter and/or drug addict, papers that say you've had gun lessons, a fortified gun case in your residence, doesn't have to be a proper gun safe but it's better if it is one. Your local beat cop will have to OK the thing before you can buy your gun, iirc. Then you have to submit the gun to the police for them to inspect it, fire and register. Then you can have the bloody thing to go hunt or shoot bottles in your country house backyard.

Play with it for a year then go submit it again to be inspected and fired, you have to do that shit every year. After 5 years of owning a smoothbore you can get a rifle permit, the procedure is similar, iirc.

I've probably forgotten a bunch of steps but the whole thing is an huge ordeal costing you time and money so many people don't bother but then again, many do.

Can you possess pistols (other than rubber bullet pistols) in Russia?

Special restrictions are imposed on the circulation of civilian weapons. Prohibited firearms are those with a cartridge capacity of more than ten bullets, those that can fire in bursts, those with a barrel length of less than 500 millimeters or an entire length under 800 millimeters, and those that can be shortened to a length of under 800 millimeters without losing their shooting capacity. Rifled-bore sporting guns and pneumatic guns with a pumping power of more than 7.5 joules and a caliber of more than 4.5 millimeters must be kept at shooting ranges. https://www.loc.gov/law/help/firearms-control/russia.php#Acquisition

Not realistically. You either have to get a commendation pistol, or get an antique one or a replica of one. It has to be a model produced before 1899 and it can't use a uniform cartridge.

You can also go to a shooting range and give them money for a pistol that will be reserved personally for you at that range, but you can't carry it or keep at home.

It served us well. It was one of the most relevant fighting rifles built in the 20th century, but what about the 21st? My goals are...

1) Rebuild a M1 and make it mission capable for another century without anyone realizing what just happened.
2) It must adapt to an ever changing world that it was not meant for.
3) Accurate? Yes
4) A change in weight and balance
4) A lie...
5) Must use modern materials as much as possible
6) Of course reliable
7) Make old people happy- or maybe not.

All questions, comments and advice welcome. So it begins.

Much like the design's reputation, this thread wont die.

>>Range trip writeup please.

In my hands in the prone it shoots under 2'' at 100 meters with iron sights.

At 200 meters it still seems to hold under 2'' width groups. In picture related I was probing a bit on the elevation by changing the point of aim (thought I was missing). As you can see all 8 rounds hit the target and stayed in a narrow strip up the target.

Took it out a week ago at a semi-optchan-ish shoot. Blew up 30lbs of tannerite at 200+ meters on the first shot. Mammoth witnessed an oak tree historically.

Overall a solid shooting M1. Very accurate for what it is.

I didn't relax when daddy was elected and took advantage of everyone trying to slim down inventory. Vehicle AR pistol project is wrapped up, have a good stash of 5.56 and lancer/magpul follower GI mags. If I wasn't broke as fuck I'd be bulking up my weak points like more tourniquets/medical supplies, lighter armor, etc. But that's regardless of current events.

AR sales have picked up, but not really anything crazy. Hate to say it, but they've been really shitty people and universally pretty fucking stupid. Like "I'm anti gubmint,me too but I also don't know how to use computers so I'm never quite sure what's happening around me and am angry about it". I literally had someone ask me if I had heard about "this shooting in Las Vegas" today and they wanted to know which AR to buy before they get banned.

I'm mainly just sick of the hordes of people looking for bump stocks. I had a little fun playing dumb to what they were with some loud snaggle toothed fuck today. Pretty much the equivalent of "no speak english" Anyone who brings up bumpstocks is a huffpo writer. Anyone who asks if we have one for sale is a well trained huffpo writer.
