I was supposed to shoot a full auto FAL (belgian receiver, Israeli LAR kit) this weekend. Alas, it ended up becoming a bolt action .308. Gun failed to cycle, the bolt would come back about half an inch after firing. Fiddled with the gas system to no avail. My friend will need to take it somewhere to get it fixed, most likely.

On the other hand, I did get to try out a Colt Anaconda and a S&W 629 V-comp Performance Center side by side. The compensator and hogue grips made the 629 very easy to shoot. The Colt was a touch smoother all around, but the grips didn't help with the recoil.

Well That would have been a damn fun time. Had he field stripped it recently? Gas plug might be upside down?
>> No. 105397 ID: c3b8cf

He said he had properly stripped and lubed it, but I dunno. It was only his second time taking it out. As far as I know the plug was open but I don't know how much he was able to adjust the gas port. I do recall the port was sticky.

I was also there the first time he took the gun out. It has fired exactly one mag in full auto and hasn't worked since. This guy is working towards the battle rifle trifecta. He has a f/a HK91, the FAL, and a M14 on transfer.

I've decided it's time to build a precision rifle and start building up a better technical understand of long range shooting. I'm working my way through TiborasaurusRex's series if anyone else is interested.

In my part of the country, there are no ranges over 300 yards in any reasonable driving distance, but I'd still like to invest long term for if/when I move for a rifle 1-2 MOA at 600+ yards. I don't (currently) rifle hunt, so this is purely a long range target project. I'm relatively new to the precision field so I'd like some sanity check on my choices. Budget is flexible here but I'd like to stay in the neighborhood of $750-1000.

Caliber: .308 / 7.62x51
It seems to have acceptable BC and kinetic energy at 1000 yards. Frankly I'm most interested in ammo availability. I don't reload yet so being able to find match grade locally is a good bonus. If anyone has a preferred match brand, I'd like to hear it.

Rifle: Savage Model 10T
I've really liked the AccuTrigger and seems a popular base for "budget" long range builds. The version with detachable magazines is $100 more but does not seem particularly important to me. A threaded barrel would be more interesting if I had access to private land to shoot with a suppressor, but since I can only shoot at public ranges I'm using earpro anyways.

Rifle (alt): Ruger American
The initial reviews seem positive and it's $100 cheaper than the Savage. Played with one at the fun store and the trigger felt better than expected (can be adjusted down to 2.5# even). Budget isn't that tight so if the Savage is generally better, so be it.

>Just out of curiosity, at what distance do you generally shoot your pistols?

Using an A4/letter format target:
For relatively fast paced fire, generally around 15m.

Using the normal pistol competition target:
Pretty much exclusively 25m, slow fire.

Pic is a 25m pistol target with 100 rounds through it from an X-Five AL SO shot two handed. But it's from better days when I was a pistol junkie. It's amazing how quickly your skills disappear when you stop regularly practicing. My recent focus on rifles has really thrown a wrench in the works when it comes to my pistol skills. I doubt I'd be able to do this kind of shooting now except if I had a REALLY good day.

Idle hands are the tool of the devil...

Range is close this week & next.
My shotgun is still not delivered.

And so the mind drifts...
I want a trainer precision rifle for 50m-100m distances to complement my AI AT. Now, if I had lived in the US, I'd probably have ordered something crazy like a lefty Stiller 2500XR action, Lilja/Krieger barrel and a JAE700 chassis. Just because. That'd have cost me as much as my fucking AI AT.

Good thing (and sadly) these things are not readily on order inna Eurolandia.

So I tried to figure out what was the best way to build something worthwhile.

I actually started off with the idea of a lefty Sako Quad, because Manners makes stocks for that. But I was on the fence due to the accuracy being just shy of what I expected which is probably in part due to the quick change barrel system. But, fear not, Sako also makes the FinnFire II which is the same action without the quick change barrel system. Except both have just been discontinued in left handed variants & none are currently in the dealer network for me to snap up.

So, back to the drawing board. After lots of looking around, I found the Anschutz 64L MPR. Basically a match rifle repeater. But again, the L version has been discontinued.

Or rather, closed.

Anyhow. Anschutz North America has partnered with Manners in the past to make tactical rimfire trainers with the 1416, but it's right handed only stocks for now. I wonder if I can convince Manners to make a mirror image.

Help me with knife harpenining?

so i got a sharpmaker and a swiss army knife OHT as my knife. i reground it and got burrs on both sides but can not get a sharp edge. what am i doing wrong? not removing the burr?
1 post omitted. Click Reply to view.
>> No. 103413 ID: 1b9ff7
the burr must be removed for sharpness. Bevel angle and polish are secondary to having two flat planes terminate cleanly. You can either use finer stones to work the burr off leaving a high polish edge, or strop it to break it off leaving a rougher but still very sharp edge
>> No. 103414 ID: 54180e
Its worth specifying 30 degrees INCLUSIVE, meaning 15 degrees from center for each edge (so as to not confuse the new guy), which is a nice slicer.

Swiss Army knives use a nice soft steel, theyre almost impossible to not get sharp.
Try slicing some paper, if it bites and tears the paper you got a toothy edge and some burs. In other steels this could be points of uneven carbides but being that the Victorinox has almost none to speak of its almost certainly a burr.
If it slices, but just not really well then your angle is probably too wide and the blade is too thick behind the edge.

As far as "regrinding" you wont be doing any regrinding or re profiling with a sharp maker. Just make sure you're letting the stones do the work and you focus on even strokes at the right angle.
>> No. 105389 ID: bb86e7
The one time i tried to sharpen a really soft blade, the bur was more like the entire edge rolling over, which is what I suspect might be happening here. Solution was to go from 30 degrees inclusive to 40. Was using a sharpmaker on the original Cold Steel Spike. Neat design, crap steel.

Because I needed to request a permit for a shotgun I'm planning to buy, I also added a permit for a SAFN onto the list.

As it turns out, perfect timing. Two collector's already notified they were selling theirs AND a local surplus dealer just brought a batch of refinished belgian army SAFNs onto the market. The wood is likely not correct and the parts are fully refinished, but personally, I don't mind too much if the price is right.

Here's some pics of the various rifles I've been offered so far.

that type of attitude is true of absolutely every government pissant ever, its not just gun regulators. they're all some combination of officious, arrogant, greedy, lazy and abusive. the lowest footsoldier cops are like that and so are senators, generals & other bigshots. in decades of regular interaction with federal, state and local government the only helpful people i have met are the people in the air quality inspection part of auto registration and some people in state departments of agriculture.
every other one of them acts like you're having an audience with the king to ask a special favor when you go to them to have them do the job that they are required by law to do. we have far too many backslapping rimjobbers who think that they're above reproach occupying positions of power.

Pretty good, though recently it has taken a hit.

Previously, you did not need an permits or licenses to be able to own a "historical, folklorical or decorative weapon" (HFD). This meant stuff like the K98K, SMLE, etc, but also some small ring hammer C96s or 1895 Nagant revolvers, etc.

The minister in charge of the rules unilaterally destroyed the list of "HFD" weapons under the pretext that these weapons posed a risk to public safety. But obviously several gun shops etc took the minister to court and the decision was overturned due to lacking any ground to destroy the list. However now most HFD weapons are in limbo, since the courts overturned the decision to destroy the HFD list, but it was never officially reinstated by the minister.

Regardless, it's easy to find surplus weapons. Including full autos, but you need special collector's permits for those. Due to this, a lot of MGs are quite cheap.

Bergman 1920s Trials Prototype Pistol
This was, as far as I can tell, the final iteration of the Bergmann pistols, developed by AEP in Liege for potential military contracts. It retains the locking system of the 1910 pattern pistol, but with a simplified disassembly method reminiscent of the C96 Mauser. The barrel was lengthened, the rear sight replaced with an adjustable leaf type, and the magazine capacity increased to 15.

This model appears to have been tested by the French in 1923, and probably by other nations as well. However, by this time the magazine-forward configuration was decidedly obsolete for a military sidearm, and no contracts were to be found. https://www.forgottenweapons.com/bergman-1920s-trials-prototype-pistol/

Hi OPchan /k/. I want to build a Glock because I live in a not-so-friendly-stan state (inb4 move). I pre-ordered a Version 2 full size Polymer 80 frame and I'm between a few options:
1.) KISS Glock 17
2.) Go full tacticool and get a Grey Ghost Precision slide, Trijicon RMR and some WML
3.)Get a G17L slide and shoot nothing but 115gr +P+ ammo (1400fps)

Ditto. Putting a lot of money into customizing a gun and then figuring out later down the line that you don't like it sucks. Trying to sell tricked out guns can be difficult as well, since a lot of people get into an attitude of undervaluing the upgrades you put into it.

>Trying to sell tricked out guns can be difficult as well, since a lot of people get into an attitude of undervaluing the upgrades you put into it.
Many times this, it's often better to part out a tricked out gun as a stock gun and sell the tricked out parts/accessories separately. Few people are actually interested in the exact build you made with the exact accessories you have, but many will be interested in individual pieces or regular guns to make a build similar to yours.

Not a huge consideration if you don't plan on selling, but I see that shit happen all the time.

I'd go with KISS for now and you can always get another frame and sink more money into it with tacti-cool stuff.

One thing I noticed with getting the P80 it is like buying AR-15 lowers, you slowly trying to put extra parts you have on it but end up building more and more guns. Soon you will have multiple completed P80 that has different things on it.

Also overall it's more expensive to build one than moving parts off an actual Glock. There were couple cheap slide or older gen Glock for sale online but as soon the P80 hit the street all of them went away :(

Agree with KISS. I'd put a focus on a more essential"fighting" gun if it's really this much hassle that you're dealing with an 80% frame. Something that you can tuck away in a pinch regardless of CWP status (shit happens) and is streamlined, but still capable of any role decently well.

I was really into the RMR idea for a while until I actually got to play with some pistols with them on. It's actually a ton of bulk and was kind of hard getting the hang of finding the dot quickly. Not knocking them, just realized they're not really for me.

Kind of the same deal with the weapon light. I was super gung ho just a few months ago and put an inforce APL on my suppressor host Glock 19. I am keeping it for now, but I wish I'd read more into the theory of having a secondary handheld light for constantly moving multi positional spot checks instead. It's bulky and makes the pistol front heavy. If I didn't already buy a T-Rex ragnorak holster fitted for the light, I would probably throw it on one of my Ithaca 37 bear gun or something instead.

Kinda of reminds me. I don't know if any of you remember but years ago I was setting out to make a .45 Enfield out of one of those Ishapore .410 but ended up giving away the rifle to Lei, for reasons.

Fast forward to earlier this year and I finally got to build one on a butchered Golden State Arms Enfield. I've been busy fulfilling my dream gun list lately.

What do you think our odds on that is? I've also been tempted to turn a shot-to-shit milsurp into a pistol caliber suppressed rifle, but the paperwork for NFA after the efile era is too much hassle, and I've been holding out for suppressor deregulation, both so I can do this project, and so I can make a suomi SBR with integral supressor, just because the way the barrel shroud attaches really screams easy integral SBR to me. Also, hoping that it would speed the fuck out of SBR/SBS forms, if filing a form 1 took only 4 months to clear instead of nearly 2 years, I'd be more okay to jump through the hoops.
