You got it backward man, he rob the place with a pistol first (8/27/2011) then came back with the nugget (1/19/2012), that's why it's odd about it, wasn't sure if going to nugget is an upgrade or downgrade

If prices for nuggets have gone up so much how much would you guys say mine is worth?

Finn M91, Tikka barrel (1940, SA marked...think most are tho), Re-used Russian M91 sight (arshins are crossed out on one side) with the added 200m adjustment, decent bore, one "early style" barrel band and one "late" both with retaining screws, import mark on muzzle end of barrel (C.A.I), "matching" barrel and bolt but the mag is not, original manufacture markings on the reciever are scrubbed but you can still make out the eagle marking (assuming that is what it is)

Looks like it has seen some shit in it's life. Pretty fun to shoot. Plan on using it for deer this coming fall.

Think I paid $250 for it when I first got my C&R almost 10 years ago. Never going to sell it but I am curious what my you guys think it is worth.

With its original lid. Fitting the glass top was actually kind of annoying, because I was an idiot and thought the crate was square and only measured two sides. Turns out Ivan really doesn't give a fuck, and the asymmetry is bad enough that the hinges are 4 inches off from each other.

Sometimes, I'm tempted to buy some wood and build a crate right, but then it wouldn't have that "close enough" Russian je ne sais quoi.

I got in right at the tail end of 91/30s. Always bummed I'm too young for cheap M44/K98 RC/SKS crates. I was tempted to pick up a K31 crate from aim a while ago but for 400, a crate is too rich for my blood.

Do you think it's likely they have gotten this far in the manufacturing process without testing it for drop safety? Not being snarky just asking.

I'm absolutely sure they've done extensive testing and are 100% certain it's drop safe. I even casually brought it up when I was speaking to them at their booth and the assured me it was.

That being said, don't you think a company as large as Ruger also did just as much if not vastly more testing before they released something as massive as their new SR9 line of pistols? Look what happened there.

Ruger had to relocate the trigger insert pivot pin to the center of the trigger. Early ones where off center and caused it to automatically disengage when dropped, much like this H9.

There's testing in house and with an R&D team, and then there's releasing them to the market for the masses to find out themselves. One idiot can easily prove an entire R&D team wrong and it only takes one unfortunate issue where all the impossibly unlikely odds just happened to be in fates favor to cause a recall. A massive recall for a new company with a new product could ruin them.

Take what I'm saying with a grain of salt, I haven't even taken one apart let alone know more than their designers. However, after handling one I couldn't help but think it may be a possibility. Companies usually learn from the mistakes of others when making something new.
>> No. 102543 ID: 96b303
Valid concerns raised indeed. Since the design seem to not be drop safe, do we know if the H9 has a striker safety, like a Glock for example (where even if the striker somehow falls, it is prevented from hitting the primer unless the trigger is actually pressed)? I'll be honest, I'm not sure if a striker safety of that type would actually work with that particular trigger. In any case I know it isn't really a solution to the issue, but I could see a company making that compromise.

Not saying it's correct, but I'm wondering if that's what they did.

Perhaps some part of their FCG prevents firing when dropped in another way that isn't apparent to the first glance. Perhaps Hudson can be contacted so that some light can be shed on the issue.

Type 97 Chi-Ha tank with a 57mm main gun. It was obsolete by the middle of WW2, but I wonder if anyone here knows of guys in the USA shooting anything of approximately the same size. Let us say that I get a license for a DD, where are the cannoneers at? I think it would be a fun hobby and lobbing 37mm or 57mm shells is a lot more affordable than 88mm, etc.

I bought pic related, its great. I'm going to make a mock-up wooden round on my lathe and paint it. After that I thought I'd try metal-spinning some dummy rounds for decor, but I was also thinking that I could start hanging out with the big boys, shooting the real stuff.

Nice! The Rubber shot looks like fun. That's a lot of 40mm.


ATF Rules 40mm Practice “Chalk” Rounds Are Explosives, Destructive Devices...

Well, might as well go bigger! Why not get a DD if they are going to pull crap like this?

>“Ok so a update. The agent that showed up was an actual bomb tech. I surrendered the rounds under protest per the advice of a attorney. The bomb tech was a really cool guy. He agreed that it was pretty stupid and he hated to do it but he was being forced to help out with the case. He did also tell me that they had sent him out to take 40mm chalk rounds under the same case. I walked out to the truck with him and watched him place the rounds in the explosive magazine in his truck.

Except for the M992(those are a whole mess of bullshit having nothing to do with being DDs) you can ignore that article, it isn't true. A single ATF agent got overzealous and took some chalks when they shouldn't have, but they are neither explosives nor DDs and this has been confirmed by multiple people in the know. Hopefully the incoming administration puts a choker on ATF so shit like this doesn't happen again, but ATF gunna ATF.

From d0041a, in the CZ P10 thread, for whatever reason:


>The U.S. Army on Thursday awarded Sig Sauer a contract worth $580 million to make the next service pistol based on the company's P320 handgun.

>Sig Sauer beat out Glock Inc., FN America and Beretta USA, the maker of the current M9 9mm service pistol, in the competition for the Modular Handgun System, or MHS, program.

>One of the major goals of the effort was to adopt a pistol chambered for a more potent round than the current 9mm. The U.S. military replaced the .45 caliber 1911 pistol with the M9 in 1985 and began using the 9mm NATO round at that time.

>Two sources confirmed to Military.com that Sig submitted to the Army .40-caliber and 9mm pistols for consideration. One source said the Army ultimately selected the 9mm version.

>The Army in December down-selected to two finalists for the competition: Sig and Glock, which had submitted its Glock 17 and Glock 19 models for consideration. Given the size of the contract, Glock is widely expected to protest the decision.

>Army officials informed Beretta USA and FN America at the show that they had been dropped from the competition in the recent down-select decision, according to a service source who is not authorized to speak to the press. But confusion reigned as reporters informed company officials of the Army's announcement.

Maybe, but it devaluates the whole X-series brand name.
It's literally a polymer gun which they ADDED WEIGHT ONTO because the balance was utter trash. Might as well make an alu lower for it at that point and have that explain the markup.

As GVD said, there's always the lowest common denominator idiots. Also likely, is that they put it on there specifically so the DOD could target the contract to get the sidearm they wanted while still having the "test trial" pony show.
>> No. 102525 ID: c11034
To be honest my only problem with the M9 was the location of the safety. I got tiny hands and my thumb couldn't reach easily. Made me slow during the "new" USMC pistol qual.

Other than that I found her to be accurate and fairly pleasant to shoot.

Would have bough a 92FS if not for that safety. How I ended up with the Hi Power.

absolutely. the proper X-series are completely different beasts than the regular P22x, fully machined from steel with match triggers, match sights and match barrels.

Unless I missed it, no one has posted about the new CZ offering... a Glock clone.

Personally I'm not too excited, since there are already tons of things just like this on the market, but I can see why CZ would make it since they are sure to sell like hotcakes.

Designed to fit into Glock 17 holsters I think.

File 148481899570.jpg - (445.69KB , 1224x1632 , pistol holster Purdy Applegate copy Detective Wond.jpg )
Here's the Applegate, which is expertly handcrafted by Karla Van Horne of Purdy Gear, is a superb recreation of the Detective Wonder Holster originally produced by SD Myres of El Paso,TX circa 1930.

Designed to be worn on the belt, the pistol carried with the butt positioned at a downward angle against a thick piece of steel-reinforced leather. The pistol in question, my Colt Detective Special, sporting a unique “Fitz” conversion from the same era, fits (no pun intended) snugly between two pockets, one cradling the barrel, and the other cupping the butt. Drawing the pistol simply involves pulling the butt forward.

Part belt holster, part shoulder holster, in spite of the Detective Wonder Holster’s unique design, I’ve yet to stumble across an original Myres-made variant, and I suspect not many were made. Regardless, classic gunleather buffs like myself point to one particular event in history where the cement the holster Myres Detective Wonder Holster was called into action when one of the original members of the Office of Strategic Services (OSS) during World War II, Col. Rex Applegate was involved in a gunfight while in Mexico shortly after the war ended.

According to legend, Applegate and a friend were accosted by a man waving a machete after dinner one evening. For whatever reason, that evening Applegate, who normally carried a 2-inch Colt Fitz Special chambered in .45 ACP was carrying a 2-inch Smith & Wesson Safety Hammerless revolver —commonly referred to as a “lemon squeezer”—chambered in .38 S&W. He carried it muzzle up in an S.D. Myres Detective Wonder Holster. http://dailycaller.com/2015/01/06/the-applegate-purdy-indeed/

Applegate responded as if still studying under Fairbairn and Sykes, emptying his pistol into the man with mechanized precision. All five shots struck the man in the torso, but failed to neutralize the threat. (The .38 S&W cartridge delivered a 146-grain bullet at an anemic 600-700 fps.) It wasn’t until his friend intervened, firing a dedicated pair from his Colt 1911, that the attacker finally met his demise. Needless to say, Applegate learned his pistol was a poor choice for self-defense and soon resumed carrying his big-bore “Fitz” Special.

Karla Van Horne’s recreation of this historically important holster is accurate, durable, and as aesthetically pleasing as the original. MSRP starts at $205, depending upon your pistol.

Does anyone have an adjustable gas block they would be willing to take apart and photograph, and if possible measure with calipers or micrometers? I'm specifically interested in the part that actually cuts off gas flow, and any detent system or other system the locks the adjustment. I'm in the process of putting together a lightweight AR and don't really want to drop the money on an adjustable titanium block, so I was considering making one. Maybe I'm over thinking this and all I need is a ball detent interfacing with straight knurling on a standard socket head cap screw. Maybe I need to make a custom screw with axial slots to engage the detent. I don't know. So any advice, pictures or other insights are welcome. Comments on who makes the best adjustable gas block are also welcome.

You could put a small slot on the underside like an AR-15 cut, without making it as wide.

Handguard is a Brigand Arms Edge. Pretty pricy and I personally think it's kinda ugly especially at this shorter length, but it's extremely light at 3.9 oz, even compared to other carbon fiber handguards.
Receiver is a TNarms polymer. Not real impressed with the quality but it'll do.
Upper is an anderson light weight.
Gas block is a SLR sentry 6 Ti.

I don't mind the looks as I'm more of a practicality over most of the rest kinda person but that price is just rough for what looks like some carbon fiber stands woven together.

It's pretty simple. A flat spring pushes on a plunger that engages three axial ballmill cuts on a screw. Basically what you warned me against in the first few posts. here's a disassembled pic that is somewhat confusing because I put the parts on the wrong side. The spring/plunger should be rotated 180 and the screw goes on the other side, not in the gas tube hole like it's lined up with. I will try to remember to update once I get it shooting but it may be a while.
>> No. 102353 ID: c47a0b
>warned me against
To be clear, it was more my personal preference that a "it is bad". I'm sure the gas block will function perfectly, and those flats will make adjustments easy enough.

Not really sure when I'll have my gas block going, but I will watch it closely to see if it flame-cuts my adjustment pin. I don't think it would as the pin I'll use will likely be an old carbide endmill shank. Either way I do hope you'll post have a range report when you get it up and shooting.
