Check this out, what do you think, guys?
Maybe cobalt-alloy barrels are actually coming.

Apparently our weaponmakers are also working on it https://foxtrotalpha.jalopnik.com/this-russian-company-plans-a-sniper-rifle-that-can-fire-1829496377

Also, wouldn't it be great to have a squeezebore high velocity pistol. It can be smoothbore too given the ranges pistols are normally used at, so cheaper and with higher barrel life.

But surface area increases as the pellet burns if it's cylindrical and is burned from inside.
>> No. 109079 ID: e56201
Still not as much surface area as normal granules. Really, why would they make it the way you're suggesting? What's the advantage?
>> No. 109080 ID: b2b3ad
More powder in the same volume, convenient to reload.
>> No. 109086 ID: e56201
It's only convenient to reload if you're only loading one bullet weight in one cartridge. It's less convenient when you have to buy a different pellet for every cartridge and powder charge. How would you even work up a load, buy a whole pack of pellets in every increment just to test a few? And you'd basically have to abandon bottleneck cartridges. And it would still burn slower due to surface area.
>> No. 109087 ID: 6affc4
I dunno, it seems like a great option for handloading, instead of having to load with a scale you just stick the right pellet and do he rest. And isn't slow burning powder beneficial for many loads? As for bottleneck cartridges, i thought you open the case up before reloading anyway, if you don't, then yeah, it's not worth it of course.

I'm hasgun again, but not the one I want. My k-frame is gone. Somewhere between my idiot sister-in-law and her idiot baby daddy, that one was "lost." Fuck, I hope someone pawned it. Better than losing a fucking firearm.
Anyway, the one returned to me was my back-up/fuck around piece, a Jimenez Arms .22 I purchased new a few years ago. It didn't work that well. I took it to the factory (they're close), they worked on it, and surprise! No difference! From what I've read online, the thing to do is sand and polish the innards, and I figured that's worth trying, but a lot of variables there. What grit should I use? Should I just use steel wool? What kind of polishing compound? Feed ramp and slide rails of course, but anywhere else I should hit? Seems like it could be a fun little project, and if I completely fuck the thing, who gives a shit? It's a Jimenez.

So I've been putting together an 20" upper and optic combo with the intent of making a DMR type of gun. I've got the upper and optic sorted out but my bipod choice is giving me trouble.

I went with the BCM SS410 20" with the SAM-R profile barrel and their M-Lok handguard because I've standardized on M-Lok. I went with the Magpul bipod. My problem is that the barrel is thick, along with the gas block, and/or the handguard is so trim that there isn't enough room between the inside of the handguard and the barrel or underside of the gas block for the bipod to lock it in. Trying to move it back to a slot clear of the gas block and I run into the problem of the barrel itself being so thick there isn't clearance between the M-Lok attachment screws.

I know Vltor makes a two-piece bipod that could possibly attach on the sides but they aren't M-Lok. Does anybody have any other suggestions for bipods that are M-Lok attach and they mount to the sides of the handguard instead of at the bottom?

The slightly less expensive route would be the UTG side mounts. No idea as to the quality, but UTG is pretty well known for being poverty tier.

Another shot of the VLTOR modpod legs on the SCAR 17. Back when bullet buttons were a thing in California.

The 17 is currently a bolt action rifle (with gas system removed) until I can fix the stock, wrap the pistol grip, and swap the FSC for a non flash hiding muzzle brake.

Not even. I had some airsoft guns and accessories by them when I was in middle school circa 2004. And even they couldn't hold up to walking around in the woods for a few hours every weekend in the summer.

But, I have a morbid curiosity about their US made accessories now...
>> No. 108989 ID: 419c96
Thought I'd let y'all know I did a bit of a work around. Rather than going with an airsoft bipod or shelling out £330 for that neat top-mounted model, I trimmed down the screws on the M-Lok attachment so that they don't contact the barrel. I still had to use the next slot back from the gas block because the little rotating piece itself is too thick to fit between that and the handguard. While it's not a whole lot of clearance between the barrel and the screw, it's clearance.

Soon I will have my first revolver, a .357 magnum, and I want to know about weird rounds.
For years I've seen weird ass .357 rounds around the internet and I never really asked about them or looked into them because for years I never owned any guns and until recently I was never interested in revolvers. So now I don't know what any of them are called or how to find them.
Can you tell me about them, anon?

Does anyone know where I can find a 30mm cantilever scope mount lower than the typical AR height? They all seem to be around 1.4" - 1.5" from the rail to the CL of the optic. I was using the optic from my AR while I waited for a scope to come in, and the LT-104 it's in is really too high at 1.5". No one seems to make a lower cantilever except super expensive ones like spuhr, nightforce, etc.

I've been collecting information regarding Japanese small arms cartridges for a few years now, trying my best to sort out all the confusing Type designations. I still consider this a work-in-progress and I am still hoping to fill in some f the gaps in my collection.

Japanese Handgun Cartridges

The first modern handgun adopted by the Japanese military was the Smith & Wesson No.3 Russian revolver. The Type 26 officially replaced the aging Smith & Wesson revolvers still in service in 1893 but some of the older .44’s still remained in military stocks until the end of WWII - though most of the ammunition had degraded to the point of being nonfunctional. In addition to the .44 S&W Russian, there were also privately purchased handguns in military service chambered in 7.63x25mm Mauser, 7.65x21mm Parabellum and .32 ACP.

1- The .32 ACP was likely the most popular foreign handgun caliber in Japanese service. This was used in private purchase Colt, FN and Mauser .32 caliber pistols as well as domestic designs like the Hamada.
•Average loading used a 71gr bullet with a muzzle velocity of 905 fps.
2- The 7mm Nambu was introduced around 1902 for the Type B ‘Baby’ Nambu pistol. It was produced until the end of WW2 despite the relatively low number of pistols made for this cartridge.
•Average loading used a 56gr bullet with a muzzle velocity of 1050 fps.
3- The Type 26 revolver was the only handgun to use the 9mm Japanese revolver cartridge. It was adopted in 1893 and served until the end of WWII.
•Average loading was a 149gr bullet with a muzzle velocity of 639 fps.

4, 5 - The 8mm Nambu was used in the 1902, 1904, Type 14 and Type 94 Nambu pistols. It was also used in the Type 100 submachine gun. There were a few experimentals such as the Hino-Komura pistol and the Type I and Type II submachine guns. Most bullet jackets were cupronickel but in WWII the shift was made to gilding metal jackets.
•Average loading used a 103gr bullet with a muzzle velocity of 984 fps.

I'm slightly confused as to how that's much worse than the external trigger bar on a Beretta 92.
>> No. 108946 ID: c917a1
Does it cause the pistol to negligently or unexpectedly discharge?
I had a WW2 Walther P.38 and she had a trigger bar outside of the frame that didn't cause me any problems.

Screenshot from World of Guns on Steam. The Beretta trigger bar is pulled forward by the trigger and trips the sear. The trigger is a lever that gives your finger some mechanical advantage to pull the trigger bar forward.
>> No. 108949 ID: 9dcda2
  FF to 1:37.

The sear bar on the Type 94 directly operates the striker, and pivots inward, where your holster could push it in.
>> No. 108950 ID: 9dcda2
  FF to 0:40

The Luger actually has the same issue, except that the sear bar is covered by the trigger side plate in normal operation. But if left loaded, it can be fired with the slide and frame separated.

So a problem with some revolvers in .38 special or .357 magnum is that they can be really snappy and thus less accurate on followup shots. This goes extra for snubbys.
Now the point of revolvers that have the barrels on the bottom of the gun like Matebas or Rhinos is that they distribute the recoil in a way that yields less barrel rise, making follow up shots more easy and accurate.
And the point of the .327 federal magnum cartridge was to get similar power to the .357 magnum but with less recoil.

So WHY THE FUCK has NO gun company (or at least some nerd with a CNC machine) combined these two technologies to create an under-barrel .327 federal magnum revolver? Why? And if you chopped it down, you'd have the lowest recoil possible revolver with that kind of powerful cartridge! How has this not happened already?

MORE powerful than .357 magnum? Now I'd assume .327 federal magnum is more powerful than .38 special without thinking about it very long, but more powerful than .357 magnum? No way, that can't be right.

I'd be more interested in a 44 Magnum or even a .454 Rhino. People choose big bore revolvers for protection against dangerous game and faster follow-up shots there could mean the difference between life and death and they wouldn't mind the weight.

A favorite .44 Magnum revolver is the Ruger New Model Super Blackhawk single-action. They are available in 3.75" barrels to 10.50" with very beefy frames. I have a 5.5" and she is a nice 6-shooter. Far more handy than my massive Ruger Super Redhawk scoped 9.5" .44 Magnum double-action.

Because revolvers are obsolete. I shot a small revolver in .327 and it was alright. .38 snubbys are pretty unpleasant. And .357 snubbys...


> Have you had the chance to fire off one of these ultra-air-light-feather weight pocket revolvers? Using a full house .357 Magnum load? If you haven’t, do this; put your Concealed Carry Magazine down, stand up, walk outside to your car or truck and open the hood… and then slam it down on your firing hand. Quite unpleasant.

The Chiappa Rhino does a pretty good job in .38 but is a bit harsh in .357. If I need a gun to specifically shoot from a jacket pocket, a 2" rhino would do the job. If I needed a compact gun for defense, I'd go for a Glock 43, 43x, or Sig P365 any day, because they can actually be reloaded in a reasonable amount of time.
>> No. 108875 ID: 48ddd0
I found the 2" Rhino .357 surprisingly mild to fire with very little muzzle flip. Well, compared to my double-barrel .410 shotgun Derringer or other .38 lightweight snub-noses.

I used to have to push their polymer lowers when I worked in a gun shop. Chinciest shit ever. Cheap and lightweight, but very little aftermarket worked in it and they'd often crack at the pivot pin.

I just noticed this about 0:37 in to my video when showing it to a friend. Appears to be a flash in the hand guards. Is this normal for PPC ARs? It makes sense that there could be unburned powder burning every so often out of the unused gas port, but how typical should this be?
>> No. 108818 ID: b774b1
I figured this out last year but I forgot to post (like I do for a lot of things). My cartridge overall length was too short, bullet was pressed in too far causing the pressure to be excessive. Simple as that. I handloaded another 500 rounds of 125gr LRN with a COAL closer to the specs in my Speer Vol. 13 book. Zero issues in my carbine, no bulged primers in my dad's M9. Also ran in my CZ without issue. I want another 9mm handgun. That is all.
