From d0041a, in the CZ P10 thread, for whatever reason:


>The U.S. Army on Thursday awarded Sig Sauer a contract worth $580 million to make the next service pistol based on the company's P320 handgun.

>Sig Sauer beat out Glock Inc., FN America and Beretta USA, the maker of the current M9 9mm service pistol, in the competition for the Modular Handgun System, or MHS, program.

>One of the major goals of the effort was to adopt a pistol chambered for a more potent round than the current 9mm. The U.S. military replaced the .45 caliber 1911 pistol with the M9 in 1985 and began using the 9mm NATO round at that time.

>Two sources confirmed to Military.com that Sig submitted to the Army .40-caliber and 9mm pistols for consideration. One source said the Army ultimately selected the 9mm version.

>The Army in December down-selected to two finalists for the competition: Sig and Glock, which had submitted its Glock 17 and Glock 19 models for consideration. Given the size of the contract, Glock is widely expected to protest the decision.

>Army officials informed Beretta USA and FN America at the show that they had been dropped from the competition in the recent down-select decision, according to a service source who is not authorized to speak to the press. But confusion reigned as reporters informed company officials of the Army's announcement.

Shooting 3-gun, I've had my VP liberate itself from my person twice while running. One more time when the whole holster fell off.

I've got a Bladetech holster and it works fine as long as you re-check the retention screws and blue loctite the mounting screws.

I got an email from GrayGuns telling me to hang onto the straight PELT trigger after sending the gun in. Sounds like they're working on an exchange or something to adapt to whatever changes Sig is going to implement in the upgrade program.

That's a bit of dust off my shoulder since I hadn't even installed it when the news first broke about this, and I was thinking I'd have to eat the cost since I couldn't resell it in good faith to someone else no matter how many owners might not care to send their gun in.

Vurrwapen ended up doing a follow-up vid with more pistols. If I'm not mistaken the APX and P-10C are up next.

Ruger RPR rifles with an alu bolt shroud can potentially have light primer strikes, or failures to fire (with the rifle firing when you try to lift the bolt).

Doesn't seem like a serious problem.

As I understood, none of the plastic shroud ones are affected anyway.

Probably a design fuckup after the public started nagging that they didn't want plastic parts on the gun and the new design was not properly tested.

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?

Yeah, I've got Magpul's handgun downloaded, and I think I have the Panteo Adaptive Handgun with Travis Haley around somewhere too. Honestly though, I think I'm fairly well prepared as far as the weapon manipulation goes, just need to get the reps in. Never hurts to revisit content though.

And yeah, Jessie Whateverthefuck is pretty damn smokin, I'm just not sure I can get past her drawl. Like...it works for some women, it really does. I'm not so sure she's one of them though. But eh, yeah, would hit. Would marry and then subsequently divorce when she started banging her team coach again or whatever.

But yeah, like I think Doomguy said in another thread, a woman who knows her way around a gun with a good level of confidence instantly goes up a point or two on the good ol' 10 scale. There were actually a couple cuties at the ASI match I shot. Potential exists.

Shot a 2-gun competition today. First time ever. Had a lot of fun even though I wasn't anywhere close to winning. First time shooting a plate rack and a Texas Star, and both large and small poppers. Still, managed to do alright. The match was split into "open" and "tactical" division with the majority of the field in tactical, including myself. Just 13 out of 51 shot open. And out of 51 names on the score sheet, it was only 43 scored shooters due to 3 DQs and 5 no shows.

So, ranked #13 in my division, #21 overall. Had one procedural where I stepped outside the box to get a shot. Just couldn't barely see the damn target from the box and overcorrected when I tried to get to the corner of the box. One failure to neutralize (Neutralizing requires either 1 A zone hit, or 2 outside the A hits) was my only other penalty, otherwise I shot it clean.

Ran the Glock 19 for my handgun, XS Big dots on it and an extended mag and slide release but otherwise stock. For my rifle I ran my PBEAR MKII. 16" BCM stainless upper with KMR handguard, Geiselle SSA, A2 stock and ACOG. I really liked the ACOG for this shoot. Even though there were was a wide spread (3 to 100 meters) of rifle targets, it worked for everything. Used the Bindon Aiming Concept thing they always talk about to use the ACOG like a collimator sight and it worked great. Consistent hits doing it that way even on 1/2 IPSC targets at various ranges. Nice and fast too. Just had to aim a tad high to account for the zero and height over bore, but I didn't have a single miss on short range targets.

But yeah, I got smoked. They had several of the local "Pro" teams show up for the match, and even Rainier Arms' team came down from Seattle to shoot, plus a lot of the teams shot the match yesterday too (two day event, each day scored as a standalone match) so those guys had an extra leg up on shit today. Oh well.

Gotta find some more stuff to shoot around here. I think I'm getting a bug.

Outstanding. It begins.

> Texas Star
I love shooting the Texas Star but hate resetting it.

> Bindon Aiming Concept
We typically shoot rifle at 75-ish yards and I found the ACOG to be slower than irons or a RDS. The ACOG is a fucking fantastic sight but kinda sucks for competition use. Either a V-mag scope or red dot is the way to go. Hell, if you've got good eye sight, even irons are usable.

> But yeah, I got smoked.
There's always someone better than you. I've got video from most of my shoots, and I was fucking slow. It takes probably 10 shoots to really get into it. Just learn from the fast guys.
>> No. 105083 ID: 6ca38e
Yeah, I suck with irons though and the BAC was working well for me. Like I said, for short range shots I was using it like a collimator sight and focusing on the target with my left eye. As soon as I had a splash of color on the target (a little highish on said target) I'd squeeze off a pair (or maybe three shots). None of my rifle targets had a FTN or FTE and I didn't hit any noshoots, so it worked pretty ok for me. Given that my other option was to run my Aimpoint Micro T1 or PRO, it was a pretty conscious choice to do it this way. So yeah, it very well may have been faster to use another method, maybe 45* irons or something, but this method worked ok for me, and it's kinda nice to have placed how I did running the gear I was. I mean shit, I was running an A2 stock as well. I think, skill wise, I'm a long way away from my equipment being the deciding factor in the outcome of my shooting, so for the moment I'm holding off on building up a rifle for the purpose of competition.

I've been looking at that Primary Arms Platinum 1-8x though. That'd be pretty tits. Or a 6x magnifier in a side flip mount to throw behind my T1. Had a 4x that got ripped off out of my car and loved it. Just gotta justify the dosh for one or both of those things.

As an aside, I had a Hazard 4 Overwatch rifle bag I got for a steal that I used for the competition and it was so fucking perfect for the job.

Also, just as a note of lulz, one of the other guys running the comp ran it with an M1A and a 50 cal Deagle. Always knew when he was up to the line, even when he was on a different stage.

I've never owned an M9 or any other Beretta product for that matter, but Ernest Langdon posted a thread on PF proposing a special run of M9s that turned into real thing within a couple months. They can be pre-ordered on Bud's.



Granted, there's a lot of other customization options out there that some folks would prefer, i.e. Wilson Combat's package, and if I hadn't already hopped on the polymer striker bandwagon for carry (first with the M&P 9, and now the P320) I'd probably be looking at the P4 for a DA/SA instead.

However, since I didn't mind the M9 too much while I was in the military, I like the idea of having one for around 700bux that was manufactured with what seems likely to be the last batch of service M9s to come out of the plant in Tennessee.

I seriously doubt that.

Can you spot whats wrong with this picture?

Cringe aside, revolver thread I guess. I just bought an MR73 yesterday. The more I read about them, the more "Swiss" they feel to me. It feels like a very high polish, beefier version of my S&W 10 (Thanks again, RaceMixer). I've always been an automatic fan, but I've come to really appreciate the trigger on revolvers (Well, except on my Nagant), I feel like I can get more accurate than with a Glawk if I put in the range time, but the downside is .38Spc feels a lot more flippy than 9x19, ignoring the obvious capacity issues. Either way, I'm no revolver expert, but they're fun. Anyone got wheelgats to show off?
>> No. 104977 ID: 19518e
I don't like how the photographer stuck a shotgun shell to prop the gun up, I think it looks prettier when the propping is done out of sight. Not sure if that's the "what's wrong with this picture".

I have to say I'm not much use in this kind of thread as I don't own any revolvers despite my fond feelings for S&W revolvers in general.

A good friend of mine got a 5 shot 44 Magnum S&W Model 69, if we go shooting at some point I will take pictures and stuff. It's a light 44, so it'll be fun as hell. I found his Model 29 with the 6" barrel to be a soft, friendly, and gentle recoiling affair even with his 300 grain bear-hunting hot loads (he travels to the USA for that with the proper permits and everything, RCMP pls do not shoot his dog).

As for me, in the (hopefully not too) distant future, I want to get a few S&W revolvers like the 8 shot .357 and a .460 S&W, but I haven't settled on barrel length for the latter... I will most likely get a longer barrel with no porting or anything. I doubt the gun will have much bite in the first place, so if possible I would like to have a 6" barrel for the .460 S&W with no brake or compensation to suit my taste. Not sure how that will work out honestly with the horse cops but I'll cross that bridge when I get to it.

Why does a french gun feel swiss to you? :)

As an aside, the stupid thing newbies often to do MR-73s is to incorrectly assemble spring n°141 when putting the side plate back on. It easily misaligns itself if you do not take care with it.

As for the MR-73, the rubber grips may be kinda ugly, but they soften up the recoil a lot.

>I feel like I can get more accurate than with a Glawk if I put in the range time, but the downside is .38Spc feels a lot more flippy than 9x19, ignoring the obvious capacity issues.

The thought of anyone running .38Spl through an MR-73 makes me sad, considering the gun's history and design requirements. :(

My MR-73 has never shot a .38Spl in its entire life and never will!

Hello /k/, it's been a while.

Help me decide/find an edc knife. I need something unique. I need a larger blade, but still something slim to carry. I don't mind if it's a friction folder, assisted opening or liner lock.

My beloved Spyderco Endura has been lost and I've finally decided to start searching for her replacement.

I have always wanted a Spyderco Roc or a Benchmade Osborne. I'm looking to spend no more than $200.

I've missed you guys. I hope you're all well.

Does it lock fine if you push it into place? If so, there's probably sand in the cut out for the Needs Work's SpeedSafe spring binding it and preventing full movement.

Dunno about the internal structure/design of a Needs Work because I've never owned one, but taking it apart and cleaning it shouldn't be an issue. Most A/O SpeedSafe Kershaws either have a cut out with the SpeedSafe spring captured inside of it while a plate going over it, but some just have it resting in the G10/handle material (my Speed Bump was like this).

If you do take it apart, use decent Torx bits (Wiha is best) of the "correct" size. Most Kershawks are going to have T-8 or T-10 screws for the pivot and T-6 or T-8 for the body. Most pocket clips are also T-6 size.

Also, when you take it apart, clean it, lube it, ect. - take some grease-like lubricant (something with the consistency of Vaseline would be best) and smear the ever loving shit out of the SpeedSafe cavity mechanism before you re-assemble. Kershaw/ZT does that from the factory and it helps prevent moisture/crude from interfering with the spring and also had the added benefit of not letting the spring rattle obnoxiously.

If you absolutely don't want to take the knife apart, take the knife and throw it into some Dawn dish soap or some penetrative oil for a few hours and then take it to a water bath and blow the ever-loving-fuck out of it with a high pressure air compressor under water. Then immediately dry thoroughly and oil.

As far as I know it was made in Poland, put in a box, stayed in a box for 60 years, and then I bought it. From what I can tell, it hasn't been refurbished or used in any way aside from my gentle white-gloved TLC.

I should have bought the other one right next to it, at the time they were wrapped so I didn't get that good of a look at them and thought 350 bucks for was about as much as I'd pay for a nugget. It was gone the day after, I'm still kicking myself over it.

I have seen those cherry factory fresh Polish M44 carbines made in the '50s and immediately crated away as they were obsolete the day they were made. 50+ years later, these blonde stock Mosin-Nagants were in big demand by collectors.

The nation of Poland began manufacturing their clone of the Soviet Model 1944 Carbine ( M44 ) in 1950, and according to Terence Lapin, author of The Mosin Nagant Rifle, production of this carbine ran until at least 1962. http://www.mosinnagant.net/global%20mosin%20nagants/Polish-M44.asp

>Ruger recently discovered that all Mark IV™ pistols (including 22/45™ models) manufactured prior to June 1, 2017 have the potential to discharge unintentionally if the safety is not utilized correctly. In particular, if the trigger is pulled while the safety lever is midway between the "safe" and "fire" positions (that is, the safety is not fully engaged or fully disengaged), then the pistol may not fire when the trigger is pulled. However, if the trigger is released and the safety lever is then moved from the mid position to the "fire" position, the pistol may fire at that time.
>All Mark IV™ pistols produced prior to June 1, 2017 are potentially affected and therefore are being recalled. This includes Mark IV™ Target, Hunter, Competition, 22/45™, 22/45™ Lite and 22/45™ Tactical models. These models bear serial numbers beginning with "401" (2017 models) or "WBR" (2016 models).
>If you have a Mark IV™ or 22/45™ pistol with a serial number beginning with the number "5," your pistol is not subject to the recall.
>Mark IV™ and 22/45™ pistols retrofitted with the updated safety mechanism are easily identified by the letter "S" in the white safety dot that is visible when the safety is engaged.

I don't know about that. It feels like we've been getting quality holds and recalls almost every week from just about everybody the past few months. Just had to send back a bunch of daniel defenses for the trigger issues. Every new Remington is basically a given, and even when it's not it should be. I swear guns are getting cheaper and cheaper as companies feel the heat from the 5 to 1 ratio of shitty Taurus PT111's or Remington 783's flying out the doors for every dependable gun.

I don't really have a huge love for Ruger's stuff, but I do like a couple of their rimfires. I have a very early Standard as well as a MKII and still fully intend on getting one of the MK IV lites down the road. They do have a shitload of issues I've noticed though. The other day I pulled out a 5.56 precision (lol even if it was functional) and neither of the mags would even seat. Had to send it back. The next day we had a .223 American where the rounds would just shoot back up and out of the magazine as well as one of the brand new mags off a peg. Had to steal an old mag out of a used one.

I respect their variety, but they really do cheap out on stuff.

same fam. it seems like the rate of warranty returns at the shop i work at puts rugers disproportionately higher than other manufacturers, even next to freedom group/RAC guns.

i dont think i can say ruger is a bad company, because they are generally very personable over the phone, and are willing to square things away with us or the customer almost instantaneously, (shitting all over bill ruger's grave is definitely a plus) but i dont think i will be going out of my way to buying any for myself. all i really have left of theirs is an LCP i will probably hawk to get a glock 42 down the line.
