Evening guys,

I have a Mossberg 9200 12 gauge that I took trap shooting, and somewhere around the 50 round mark the bolt locked back and won't budge. A similar malfunction occurred earlier in the day, but was cleared with a simple butt-stroke and the gun functioned without error for the next 40 rounds or so. I'm not sure if this is a issue with the bolt or the action bar, but neither piece will move. Any guidance on troubleshooting this would be greatly appreciated.

(also if this is in the wrong place feel free to move it)

I thought that was a canuckshit thing :/
>> No. 102844 ID: 85f7d3

So, at this point I'm not sure how to move forward. I would like to remove the barrel to get at the bolt, but AFAIK the barrel can't be removed while the action is out of battery, is that correct?
>> No. 102845 ID: 6057a8
From what I've seen of that kind of design of semi-auto, the thicker chamber area interferes with the action bars unless the action is closed. You could try to see if they can wiggle out together, sometimes getting the barrel to play forwards and backwards can help you free up the action just enough to close, or even to remove all the things. If it doesn't move with light percussive persuasion, you might have to bring it to a gunsmith, but I have a sneaking suspicion he'll just take out a slightly larger plastic hammer, close the action with it, and unfuck it after it's apart.

You can try bumping the action bars/piston or seeing if the barrel has any wiggle room, as long as you're not chimping out on it and using leather-wrapped hammer or plastic hammer for your diagnostic drumming and disassembly, I honestly can't imagine you'd do more damage if you're just tapping at it to try and close the action. Sometimes a surprising amount of force is required (muzzle assembly pin for SVT-40 requires full force 16oz ball peen to even get it to move a hair) without anything being wrong.

Regardless, there's no shame in being cautious, if you're concerned about damaging it further at this point, at least getting it looked at by a competent gunsmith could save you headaches in the long run; internet diagnosis or advice can only go so far. As I have no first hand experience with that particular firearm, I can't recommend much in good conscience aside from getting it looked at by someone IRL that knows that model.
>> No. 102846 ID: 85f7d3

Thanks, I appreciate the input. When I have a minute I'm going to grab a rubber hammer and see if I can move the action bar at all. I'll also let some oil soak into where I *think* the action is bound up to see if that will help. I'll report back.
>> No. 102847 ID: 6057a8
No prob. Seeing how slow OPchan is, it wouldn't hurt to leave the thread up for a while longer before doing much more than oil and a bit of light hammer time. Maybe a 9200-or-similar owner will check in and provide insight.

Kinda reminds me of the IMFDB entry for Black Cops II where they comment on the survivors of the zombie mod using four identical Colt Pythons from the wardens private collection and mentioned how it shows he's not very good at collecting things.

The fact the Armed Guy has multiples of the same damn thing leads me to believe he is just hoarding. Its a bit different from just collecting, hoarding items ensures nobody else has them and isn't done for any reason beyond "I have them and you don't".

The recoiless rifles kill me, I've been lusting after a 57mmRR for years, it was actually a 57mm reactivation thread I ran across that got me into DDs. The fact that he has multiple in presumably working condition with that many usable components and he hasn't shot any of them in years is painful to think about. I also have to wonder how often he's shot that MG-42, cause the box of ammo he holds up and what looks like most of the other boxes surrounding it are all 8x56R on chargers.

Considering how many he has, I doubt he gets the ammo to shoot from his exhibits.

Also, if you have both MG34 & MG42, wouldn't you shoot the former a lot more often? Better trigger, single/auto, higher overall quality,...

You know, I was reading on swissrifles earlier, apparently one guy owns somewhere between 10-25% of the 550s and civ import 551s in the US.

And now this.

Theres an old guy who used to do central california shows that basically bought all the milsurp when it was super cheap back in the day, and he used to fund his retirement slowly selling it off. He literally bought two barrels of Turk mausers for $100 when they first hit the markets in the 60s, and so he'd have a few of those, a couple enfields, a 1903, and so on. He had the best 3-4 tables of the show and he'd give you a deal if you spent over a thousand or so, or if he got to recognize you.

Private party C&R long arms were banned in CA since and I think he basically stopped shortly after that.

I wanted to buy a nice bringback K98 from him years ago when I was still in college, but was $200 short of his lowest negotiating price. I tried getting my mom on the phone to lend me the money, but when she found out what it was for, she said no because I had too many guns as it was. When I told him I'd have to pass over it for that reason, he asked how many I had. About 8 or so. He laughed and said his wife told him the same thing when he hit that much, only with 2 zeros at the end of that. He let me walk out with that rifle with the promise to pay him back once I had the cash.

I like to imagine there's a lot of these old guys that saw "Crate of SVT-38s for $25? Sure why not" that will eventually reenter the market once they realize they can't take them into the afterlife and start bringing them to gun shows (and hopefully not RIA or their kids turning in for gun buyback giftcards)

What about a K11 or G11? I had a K11 (IIRC, Tactikool wound up with it) and I liked it better than either K31 I had, except for the 300m minimum iron sights. One of them would still be a good buy if they're available.
>> No. 102834 ID: 0876ee
>I had a K11 (IIRC, Tactikool wound up with it)
And I still have it, thank you!

G11s (or 96/11s, theyre basically the same thing) are the best discount swiss rifle imo. Their bolts are smoother and the recoil a lot slower than K31s, and generally are very pleasant to shoot, as well as the long fucking sight picture to boot. You have to be okay with a 30" barrel'd rifle though, which I think are sexy as fuck, but such opinions are unpopular.

The rule with milsurp is basically, you get one chance to buy it for cheap, and in some cases that window can be just a few hours long, or in the most extreme case with the AIM manhurins a while back, only a few minutes iirc. (Someone on here got in on them, Jedi, was that you?). Other than that, it'll cost a noticeable amount more but the flip side is you can inspect (or at least see pictures on gb) so you have a much better idea of what you're getting. I personally don't mind paying the extra to make sure I get something in good condition, but I guess that's not true for everyone, and some things can be really hard to get after market, like the Jordanian S&Ws that came on for really cheap but never were seen again (Still huge THANK YOU to RaceMixer for selling me his, I still havent seen one pop up on gb)

The stock pictured is right for the later LR300s though.

Its really a shame manufacturing of the LR300s never took off. I was hoping the Para purchase would bring them to a bigger spotlight, but it seems Para had some financial issues and so they decided to forget about taking a risk and doubled down on 1911s.

I remember the old ZM website, iirc they had LR300 kits for 1700 (upper, stock, pistol grip). Shit just wasn't cheap enough or well marketed enough to get much appeal outside maybe the toppest tier of arfcom richfags and opchan tripfags.

I really wanted to build one before zm shut down, but I was still a poor collegefag at the time, and such, HK ends up getting all the piston AR money and we still dont have real folding stock ARs on the market last i checked.

Well, with the current president and leaked ATF whitepaper, who knows, we may be able to get Sigs imported again and thats basically the same thing outside mag/trigger group compat.

I really don't understand why people are so optimistic about the HPA. Look, I'd love it if it passed, and don't let me discourage you from contacting your reps/pushing for it, but I don't see it happening. Do people really think that the majority of republican politicians are in favor of taking things off the NFA?
>> No. 102748 ID: 6ca38e
A lot of my optimism admittedly comes from my desire to see it passed. But, objectively, as far as firearm legislation goes, the performance of the HPA in the past year has been stellar, picking up more cosponsors, faster, than pretty much any pro-gun bill in recent history.

Add in to the fact that the ATF has said outright that they won't fight against the HPA and indeed the recent white paper that was "leaked" indicates that there are strong feelings from inside the ATF about taking them off the NFA on their own. Of course, the white paper isn't policy, and obviously those feelings aren't universal. But it's good news all the same.

On the financial side, I'm not sure how much money is actually generated by the tax stamps or where exactly it goes, but in total I can't imagine it being a significant amount as far as the US Government is concerned. Millions to be sure, but against a budget measured in the hundreds of trillions (on which we don't seem to give a shit about being in the red every year as it is).

Plus...Trump Jr is all about the quiet pew pews and is close to some industry people. Trump himself also proclaimed himself to be adamantly pro 2A during the elections and it's an opportunity to prove that such proclamations were more than just lip service.

I think, all considered, the conditions simply all line up really well for the bill getting passed. Maybe I'm wrong in the way I've read things, but I'm hopeful and mostly confident that I'm right.
>> No. 102749 ID: b70387
It doesn't hurt them to be cautious in this situation. If/when the HPA passes, they can ramp up production to meet demand, and any advantage that some other company might have by already having a large inventory of suppressors would be a temporary thing. Ramping up production now could put them well into debt, which would be especially hard to pay off if the HPA doesn't pass, or even passes a year or two after they might expect. If it doesn't pass, they now have a bunch of possibly specialized equipment that they need to sell, possibly at a significant loss. If it does pass, but they overestimate the new demand for suppressors, the same applies, to a somewhat lesser extent.

We've seen similar decisions made by ammunition manufacturers during the panic buying episodes. They don't add more equipment to bring up capacity, because the panic-buying doesn't reflect a long-term trend. They need to be able to feel out any long-term trend before they do anything, or they risk screwing themselves over.

Oh hey I was posting in this thread.

Mainly the carry reciprocity bills that have been pretty much non-starters is what I was thinking of. 2, 3 times during Obama's term it came up and died it committee?

The HPA picked up 7 cosponsors last week, and twice that the week before. To compare, the CCW Reciprocity bill in 2013 averaged between 1 and 2 a week for most of its span.

Granted, picking up cosponsors is not a perfect indicator on how a bill will perform in committee and at votes, but it's kinda all we have to really go on until voting happens.

While I wouldn't call it a resolution, I have decided that I want to get out shooting more this year. For a number of reasons, the last couple years I haven't made it to either the range or the woods, and I aim to fix that.

I'm planning on taking some classes as soon as I can, but in the meantime, I'm looking to gather up some good resources towards bettering myself as a shooter, rather than just going out and making noise. I'm getting a shot timer and a few target stands, and my goal is to get out and do 200-250 rounds once a month. My focus will be on my carry guns; Glock 19 and 43. I'll probably work the AR every couple of months too.

So, I'd like to devote a theead to training resources found on the web, and I'd be interested in Opchan's input.

The obvious one that I already have bookmarked is www.pistol-training.com.

What other good sources are out there? Drills? Targets? YouTube channels?
