I can say that the TLR1 HD will take some serious beatings before the lens cracks, his Inforce hasn't had *any* issues whatsoever.

Since P320 the fire control group is the "firearm" so do you just buy a PDW kit and move your fire control over and it's good to go?

So it's really hard to get anything for .587" bore but my buddy has some old lead bullets for his 577 Snider black powder.

I figured 170 grains of Trail Boss might be able to get a 520 grain lead bullet out the barrel.

The results were... Interesting.

Yes, the difference in recoil energy is why I asked. I'd suspect that pistol recoil is sharper and quicker, but 14.5 would be heavier (though the weight of the gun & the brake may mitigate that). However, a handgun has "give" in the hands and arms that are holding it, especially with the super big magnums. Your shoulder when prone is going to move way less.
>> No. 106843 ID: 19518e
The PTRD has 3" of stock travel for recoil mitigation and to cam the bolt handle as to start extraction so that should have a similar effect.

It's also why long eye relief is important.
>> No. 106844 ID: 19518e
File PTRD_cycle.webm - (320.33KB )
WEBM related. Quite a simple way to get this single-shot to help the shooter extract a case. Since the cartridge is so large, having a stuck case would be problematic as the force required to unstick it might be quite high. Having the bolt handle kicked up by a ramped surface is a good way to unstick a case and it doubles as a way to dampen felt recoil. The spring in the stock is pretty stiff, but if you're in a shooting position you can compress it without too much effort just by pulling the gun in your shoulder with both arms.

We can tell that hard extraction was a concern, as the PTRD-41 cocks on closing like an Enfield. This reduces the force required to open the bolt as the shooter doesn't have to cock the firing pin on opening. When throwing a new cartridge in there, the shooter can take a running start and throw the bolt into battery; the bolt will cock on closing mostly under inertia of the bolt's forward movement as the shooter pushes it closed. Couple this with the bolt handle ramp, and we can see that the PTRD was designed with care for the user in many respects.

It's quite fast and easy and it is a well thought-out system.
>> No. 106848 ID: e0deaf

I knew of the travel, but I always assumed it was merely a "starter" for the unlocking. Certainly not past an inch.

Neat to see your webm.

With all that in place, I'd expect the scope to hold up fine.
>> No. 106849 ID: 19518e
Depending on the shooter, his position, and the ammo, the bolt can get enough inertia to open completely and kick the empty case out but that happening is basically a bonus. Most of the time the shooter will simply sweep his right hand back to grab the handle where ever it could be to ensure the bolt is open and the empty is out so a new round can be shoved in.

Having said that, I will say that it is pretty cool when it does run open by itself and you feel/hear the case ding-dong'ing on the ground so you chuck a new round in there while grabbing the bolt handle so you can throw it home and close it in a fastsmooth motion.

7.92x33mm FAL Modification at GunLab
This is Pete’s , a friend of Gun Lab, version of a 7.92×33 rifle. His solution was to put in a new ejector block of his design with a spring loaded ejector. Then remove 0.900″ from the magazine to fit the 7.92×33 round.
With the last post we made on the 7.92×33 FN-FAL we showed a FAL that had a new ejector block and magazine made to allow the rifle to shoot 7.92×33. This post will show a different approach to reach the same conclusion, shooting 7.92×33. This series of photographs comes from another friend of Gun Lab and how he converted his rifle to use MP-44 magazines. This version the owner cut down the receiver by 0.900 and welded support plates to enlarge the magazine housing. http://www.thefirearmblog.com/blog/2015/08/11/7-92x33mm-fal-modification-at-gunlab/

The first prototype of what was then the FN Universal Carbine, but that would become the FN FAL (Light Automatic Rifle), was not chambered for the familiar 7.62×51 NATO, nor its competitor round the .280 British, but in the German 7.92x33mm Kurzpatrone round developed in 1942 for the MKb. 42(H) (the predecessor of the famous Sturmgewehr).

If size/concealment is a concern, you could go with a sling-bow with some strong elastic.

It won't be as strong as a bow and probably even slower to reload but maybe that doesn't matter. People make a fuss over the psychological effect of being shot making people stop, drop or run away because of what we all see on TV and the movies and I don't think that's a reliable way to stop a threat, but I imagine suddenly hearing a THWAP, feeling a sharp pain and seeing an arrow sticking out of your chest is an existentially introspective experience.

I'd rather a baseball bat than a bow in a self defense situation. Bows are great offensive weapons, but terrible defensively.

if u can move unhittably fast at all times it don't make too much difference what weapon you have. iga ninja with a butterknife slaughters your whole "trained" infantry platoon.
the dude in OP video probably gets that.
he also seems to get that guns have taken a lot of the fun and athleticism out of fighting to the death.

imagine this: one second you're in a combat zone and it seems like maybe some shit might be about to happen but you're for sure not in the heat of battle. you might not even have your rifle shouldered, you might be just hanging out. next second you're in valhalla. shit son you just died in modern battle. some fuck u never saw popped you from 3000m or from 30km. now you're in valhalla and you got no stories to trade with the other guys.

compare that to being in the heat of battle in war of the roses era, where u could like punch people and kick them in the balls before stabbing them. thats a lot more fun sounding

This would be perfect on a full length AR with all wood furniture.

I imagined a more standard set trigger where the trigger is pushed forward but bumping the safety isn't so bad. It certainly matches the unconventional image of a conventionally "tactical" rifle built to be an old sport style firearm.

Looks like Ruger is taking their PRS success with the RPR and parlaying it into the rimfire trainer market. MSRP is $529, which means a $425-$450 street price. If it shoots worth a damn, they're going to sell a pile of them.

>If PRS rimfire isn't mainstream yet, it will be after this

I'd certainly hope so... But I really wish it'd be so focused on the budget market.

I really have no issue whatsoever to spend a large amount of coin on a high quality .22LR. Especially if it's accurate, reliable and has a left hand bolt.

Recently another interesting company launched a tactical trainer line btw: vudoogunworks.com
As far as I can tell, they should fit in any Rem700 chassis, which makes it quite interesting.
Note that these vudoo ones are easily over $2000.
>> No. 106665 ID: 704636
Yeah, Vudoos are Remington 40Xs with magazines. They're probably as accurate as .22LRs get.

I'm not sure if they're sold over in Euroland, but here in the US Anschutz sells rimfire trainer models in Manners T6 stocks:

One of those is a good option if you hate money and want an accurate out of the box .22LR. You could also get some of the 54 action guns, but they're mostly set up for Olympic and NRA small bore shooting. I think Anschutz sells lefty models too in the 54 and 64 series.

CZ also sells 455s in Manners stocks as well (I think they're T4s). 455s are right hand only, though:

The new Steyr Zephyr II might be an option too. They're priced around low end Anschutzs in the US market:

I'm aware, but any information request to Anschutz Germany goes unanswered, especially if you're asking about lefties.

The vast majority of those are single shot though. Very accurate indeed, but I wanted a repeater.
For right handed people, the MPR seems like a good choice, but they don't make it lefty anymore.

>CZ also sells 455s in Manners stocks

Not a particular fan of CZ .22LRs.

I actually should 3d print my own fletching jig. I own a 3d printer. It would make my life a lot easier to not have to rely upon the range owner's equipment to make my own arrows, which I will need to do by myself eventually.

Also, range report. Today was my first day shooting these bamboo arrows and comparing them against my shoot from yesterday with my carbon arrows.

My carbon arrows weren't able to hold a group at 10m, and I rarely actually hit the target at all.

My bamboo arrows held a group at 20m on a standard 18m traditional archery 40cm ring target. Zero misses.

It's really bizarre. Everything on paper says that my carbon arrows should be better. Everything. Spine charts say my bamboo arrows are too lightly spined. They flex unevenly depending on how you flex them! Yet, they fly straight in flight, and my carbon arrows wobble about as if they are *under spined*.

I don't get it.
