When I buy this, can I stick a carry handle and A1 front sight post and have it all work out all right? The reason I'm slightly hesitant about this plan is that Sig's website describes the weapon as being "based on the AR-15 platform", which, along with the caliber difference and that... whatever the fuck that is on the front of the handguard (is that the gas block?), gives me pause.

Also, QTDDTOT is go.

I should say SPR inspired rifle instead of clone. I'll make changes based on what I feel is needed, but aesthetically I want it to resemble the SPR.

As the for the FAL, I like it. It's comfy and I can dial in the gas block to fire whatever I buy/reload. Do I need any other reason?

Do you want to shit on my desire to own a K31 and reload 7.5x55mm too?

My suggestion would be an AR10 in 6.5mm Creedmoor. But really an SPR inspired AR15, chambered in .223 Wylde, with maybe a >=20inch barrel would probably be more practical...

I bought another upper for my .308 AR. It's an Alexandria Pro-Fab mystery special from Aim Surplus. Cost me $470 ish and it seems alright aside from the proprietary forend mounting system. Shoots 2" groups with decent ammo and 4" with Perfecta .308 from Wal-Mart.

Walmarts by me still have Perfecta, FMJs for about ~$12/20 rounds, and soft tips for $7/20. I thought the soft tips were just on close out so I bought them all up a few months ago, but they were back at the same price last week.

I haven't seen ZQI at Walmart since Christmas. It was $10/20 when it was there.

Oh, yes, short barreled pistols are much louder than long barreled rifles, but even something like a Ruger Single-Six .22 LR revolver with a six-inch barrel is much quieter than a Ruger Super Blackhawk .44 Magnum or Ruger Vaquero .45 Colt (believe me!). Shooting indoors intensifies the noise (reflecting the noise back at you). I remember reading decibel gun data that went into further detail by listing the barrel lengths, but the upshot is that only the .22 Short and .22 Long Rifle are below the 140 decibel mark.

That being stated, I would not recommend you practicing shooting a .22 without ear protection as repeated loud noises can damage your hearing.

holy shit I didn't realize Bat Guano ACTUALLY is a robot.

If you're shooting any firearm not in anger other than a .22 short or a suppressed subsonic round and not using hearing protection you should be using protection regardless if indoors or out though. I'd even say earplugs for anything inside. Even loud pellet guns are unpleasant inside if not actually harmful.

Prvi Partizan makes that. It used to be imported as "Wolf Gold," but now you can get it in the blue box.

Brassfetcher tested it but I can't find the results on the new web page:


Yes, it expands. Yes, it expands going through four layers of denim. Yes, it penetrates well over 12" of calibrated 10% ballistic gelatin whether clothing is present or not. It's also rather inconsistent--for five shots muzzle velocities ranged from 1276 to 1416 f.p.s., an ES of 140 ft/sec, more than 10%, for five shots. I wish those crazy drunken Serbs would tighten up their quality control and get the powder charges a little more consistent, though.

Once I get the scooter out of the shop, looks like I'm bringing a Mossy 500 home! I haven't seen it yet, don't know the condition or even the barrel length (forgot to ask). But, I don't care, a free gun is a free gun, I'm lacking in the long arm department anyway. As long as it's serviceable, I'll be happy. Even if he's confusing a Maverick 88 for a 500, I can't complain. It's free and should work.

At least one good thing has happened this month, these last few weeks have hit me really hard. This one thing is lifting my spirits immensely, especially since I was just going through my change jar trying to scrounge up enough for the repair.

It's bad for everything. It's a signature "technology" of a segment of the shooting industry that has moved away from practical, quantifiable performance. If you need to save weight you do that via choosing a better geometry and a better steel alloy.

My friend had a Browning BAR .30-06 semi auto rifle w 4 round removable magazine. He liked it because he had very fast and powerful follow-up shots, I hated it because the $40+ 4 round mags were too low capacity and slow to reload.

Well now he needs a new hunting(deer, maybe hog) rifle. I'm leaning toward pic related, G3/Cetme/hk91/20rds 7.62 NATO. They are huge guns, but the G3 has a retractable stock available. What about chopping the barrel, will that affect reliability on any of these?

Finally, I saw an 'SA58 FAL Voyager' for $1200 on DSArms. $1000 is probably the most he'll want to spend (he already has the glass) but is an FAL or at least a DSA FAL worth the extra jewgoldz?

So none of my rifles have scopes. I've been an iron sights shooter since I first bought my mosin. Always thought about scoping one of my rifles but never did because I was terrified I'd create a bubba monstrosity. As such I never really learned much about scopes.

Now in the Marines the last time I went to the range I qualified with an ACOG. Due to my inexperience with them the magnification fucked me all up. I went from shooting high sharp shooter (used to always miss expert by 1 point) to being a pizza box. Needless to say that pissed me off so I haven't touched a gun with a scope since. (At the same time it GREATLY improved my table 2 shooting. Like I actually understand why the RCO is better for combat)

I've decided I want to know more. Would any one here care to explain to me how they work in practice?

Like the real basic stuff because I don't really understand how WWI snipers got by with simple post reticles when I don't see an obvious way to estimate distance.
What the hell is a mildot? (ok I know what it is but treat me like I don't have the foggiest)
What is the pros/cons of other reticles?
Why would anyone want a fixed power scope?

Seriously break this down barney style for me

Also please post scope porn

I'm new to magnified optics as well. I've got a TA-31H ACOG (4x, horseshoe reticule) and it's tits. (As you know.) Basically, I never want to use my natural eyes again, I just want ACOG vision all the time. I've messed around with the baby-cog's too and they're nice. Seems like 3x hits a really nice balance.

I'm probably going to buy a new scope for the RPR some time after I buy a new video card. $1000 for a Vortex Viper FFP 6-24... or do I just get the Nightforce for twice the price and be done with it. (I don't know, I'm not that dedicated to long range...)

File 146636801263.jpg - (103.26KB , 1100x739 , pistol UK Canadian NAACO Brigadier _45 long case 1.jpg )
NAACO Brigadier - The North American Arms Corporation Limited, 8 Bermondsey Road and later at 1480 Birchmount Road, Toronto, Ontario (NAACO). The company began its pilot operations in January 1959. In September 1959 Major General Chris Vokes was elected to the Board of Directors of the new corporation. The Brigadier pistol was developed to meet Canadian requirements for a service handgun in the aftermath of World War II. It was based largely on the FN GP35 Hi-Power self-loading pistol of 1935, but scaled up significantly. Whereas the Hi-Power used the 9 mm Para cartridge, the NAACO Brigadier used a new long-case .45" round of much greater power than the then-standard .45 ACP. With a standard 230-grain (15 g) bullet, the .45 NAACO cartridge could produce muzzle velocities of up to 1,600 feet per second (490 m/s), or almost twice as fast as the .45 ACP. In order to keep weight down, the pistol used an aluminium slide, but still weighed more than four pounds, unloaded. Its box magazine could carry eight rounds of ammunition. A removable trigger module allowed for a fully automatic configuration, complete with an attachable butt-stock. This would produce a sub-machine gun configuration called the Borealis (never constructed). Gunsmith Robert Herman and Designer Russell Sutherland spent a year developing the prototype. The company also produced the .308 caliber Grizzly and Homestead rifles, along with 12 gauge pump action shotguns, the Mallard (Model 15M) and La Salle; and, a No. 10 Grizzly .22 (Also made Nos. 20, and 30) rimfire single-shot bolt-action rifle. The company also imported guns from Japan and Spain. NAACO's President was John R. Cavanagh. On December 18, 1962 the assets of the bankrupt company were sold at auction by J. Spadafora and Company on the Birchmount Road premises.

Collapse and aftermath:
In the end, the Brigadier project fell victim to NATO standardization, and the company folded in 1962. Only one prototype was built, and the weapon never entered service; the Brigadier's rarity makes it pricey on the gun market.

The .45 NAACO cartridge sank into obscurity, but was revived in the 1970s by Winchester as a long-range target round. Ballistic performance was nearly identical to the original, and the cartridge was christened .45 Winchester Magnum. It has since been used in a number of handguns. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NAACO_Brigadier
