>> No. 102894 ID: fb893e
I meant to do that with my K31s, but sold them first. They were more accurate than I was with irons, so it probably didn't matter.

Did you try it again? I'm curious if was a problem with the weather or the gun itself. I also can't hurt to check the action screws and even barrel bands. I can't imagine that would have an effect from shooter to shooter, but if things are loose you might get odd results from shot to shot. My CZ 527FS had that issue when I first got it - the rear sight was tight in the barrel channel, and once the barrel heated up, warped slightly, and tensioned against the stock the gun patterned. Some filing/sanding in the barrel channel pretty much fixed it.

As you no doubt have heard, Ruger launched the Ruger MkIV a few days ago. It greatly simplified takedown/reassembly and improved the trigger a bit. It comes at a cost though, as accessories like triggers etc are not compatible with older versions.

But listening around, I hear a lot of people that say they like the others better. Why is that? We all know takedown/assembly was a huge pain in the dick, so why would you just disregard that?
It's not even people saying they won't buy a new one because they own an older one. It's people flat out saying that even if they didn't own one that they wouldn't buy it.

A 70's era suppressed MkI would probably mean an AWC Amphibian... at least that's what I'm translating that as.

New ones on MkIII frames are around $1500+, originals would probably be in the same territory as a High Standard HDM if you have to ask...

I'm wanting to branch out and try some new guns. I primarily use my full size guns for competition (which is not to say that I'm a great shooter, just that's the bulk of my shooting). I'd like to check out a lot of different striker fired options.

Here's my question, for a person who's just exploring the options is it worth it to buy the long slide/competition models? If I fall in love with a gun a keep it, then it would be Buy Once Cry once. But if I don't, then I'll have paid more for a gun I'll probably just end up selling anyways. And for most of the guns (except the Steyr L9-A1) the longslide version is usually $100+/- more expensive.

So for an average guy try exploring the striker fired world without getting divorced, should I skip the longslides or not?

I'm not a comp shooter, but personally, I find that for marksmanship, the longer the better, pic related is my striker fired long barrel.

Even for CC, it doesn't matter so long as its under, eh 4.5 inches? For 6 oclock, my biggest concern is just not having it be long enough that it interferes with sitting (sitting on the barrel or pistol rises up because barrel is supported by seat). But I digress.

Guns arent terribly expensive and you're probably going to spend about $600 or so maybe for a gun, and it'll maintain its resell value fairly well (especially if you buy used). If you stick to buying used, you may end up actually not paying more than a new standard size, and I don't think it would necessarily hurt to have a small collection of different guns, even if you didn't fall in love with the first one, it might still not suck for trying different sights or just something different every once in a while.

Plus, longslides are sexy. My vote is go for it.
>> No. 102854 ID: 5de6c9
The main advantage a longslide gives you is the longer sight radius. Like most things, how much of an advantage that actually provides you depends largely on...well, you.

A slightly more objective benefit is the increased mass will help reduce recoil slightly and get you back on target that much faster.

Plus there was that vid of the competition dude who could reliably rack his Glock 34 one handed using only the inertia generated on the slide by holding the damn thing normal and yanking straight back towards himself and then pushing it away from himself again. Was supposedly done with a stock pistol.

The 34 slide weighs the same as a Glock 17 because they cut out metal from the top. Pic related.

OP: I am a competition shooter and own all length of 9mm Glocks other than the 17L. The difference between the G17 and G34 is minimal for close shooting. In fact, I was just on the range last week with a timer and I could barely get a detectable difference between them for a simple 7 yard draw and shot 2 on 2 targets. The only difference between the guns is front sight. I think there might be a slight difference at longer distances, but not enough that you will really notice.

If you are trying to pinch pennies, get a G17. If you get a G34, you won't regret it either and should have no problem selling it.

To take this topic to the extreme, I occasionally shoot my G26 in USPSA for the lulz and really have no issues or significant drop in standings with that either. I love that little gun though, the shape of the grip fits perfectly in my hand. So don't worry about fractions of an inch when several inches don't matter.
>> No. 102900 ID: fb893e
I'm a fan of 'longslide' models for the better balance and longer sight radius, but you're unlikely to tell the difference unless you shoot them back to back.

Speaking of comparing them, have you tried the various striker fired pistols on the range? Some pistols are softer shooting than others, so you might find a smaller Glock 19 or H&K VP9 nicer shooting than even a long slide Walther PPQ. That would make a 4.5" barrel G17 or an S&W M&P 2.0 5" much nicer to shoot in comparison.

You know, I was reading on swissrifles earlier, apparently one guy owns somewhere between 10-25% of the 550s and civ import 551s in the US.

And now this.

Theres an old guy who used to do central california shows that basically bought all the milsurp when it was super cheap back in the day, and he used to fund his retirement slowly selling it off. He literally bought two barrels of Turk mausers for $100 when they first hit the markets in the 60s, and so he'd have a few of those, a couple enfields, a 1903, and so on. He had the best 3-4 tables of the show and he'd give you a deal if you spent over a thousand or so, or if he got to recognize you.

Private party C&R long arms were banned in CA since and I think he basically stopped shortly after that.

I wanted to buy a nice bringback K98 from him years ago when I was still in college, but was $200 short of his lowest negotiating price. I tried getting my mom on the phone to lend me the money, but when she found out what it was for, she said no because I had too many guns as it was. When I told him I'd have to pass over it for that reason, he asked how many I had. About 8 or so. He laughed and said his wife told him the same thing when he hit that much, only with 2 zeros at the end of that. He let me walk out with that rifle with the promise to pay him back once I had the cash.

I like to imagine there's a lot of these old guys that saw "Crate of SVT-38s for $25? Sure why not" that will eventually reenter the market once they realize they can't take them into the afterlife and start bringing them to gun shows (and hopefully not RIA or their kids turning in for gun buyback giftcards)

Huh. I'd think that with the all but imminent passing of the HPA, they'd be cranking into overdrive to be in the best position to meet the HUGE surge in demand that is likely about to take place.
>> No. 102748 ID: 6ca38e
A lot of my optimism admittedly comes from my desire to see it passed. But, objectively, as far as firearm legislation goes, the performance of the HPA in the past year has been stellar, picking up more cosponsors, faster, than pretty much any pro-gun bill in recent history.

Add in to the fact that the ATF has said outright that they won't fight against the HPA and indeed the recent white paper that was "leaked" indicates that there are strong feelings from inside the ATF about taking them off the NFA on their own. Of course, the white paper isn't policy, and obviously those feelings aren't universal. But it's good news all the same.

On the financial side, I'm not sure how much money is actually generated by the tax stamps or where exactly it goes, but in total I can't imagine it being a significant amount as far as the US Government is concerned. Millions to be sure, but against a budget measured in the hundreds of trillions (on which we don't seem to give a shit about being in the red every year as it is).

Plus...Trump Jr is all about the quiet pew pews and is close to some industry people. Trump himself also proclaimed himself to be adamantly pro 2A during the elections and it's an opportunity to prove that such proclamations were more than just lip service.

I think, all considered, the conditions simply all line up really well for the bill getting passed. Maybe I'm wrong in the way I've read things, but I'm hopeful and mostly confident that I'm right.
>> No. 102749 ID: b70387
It doesn't hurt them to be cautious in this situation. If/when the HPA passes, they can ramp up production to meet demand, and any advantage that some other company might have by already having a large inventory of suppressors would be a temporary thing. Ramping up production now could put them well into debt, which would be especially hard to pay off if the HPA doesn't pass, or even passes a year or two after they might expect. If it doesn't pass, they now have a bunch of possibly specialized equipment that they need to sell, possibly at a significant loss. If it does pass, but they overestimate the new demand for suppressors, the same applies, to a somewhat lesser extent.

We've seen similar decisions made by ammunition manufacturers during the panic buying episodes. They don't add more equipment to bring up capacity, because the panic-buying doesn't reflect a long-term trend. They need to be able to feel out any long-term trend before they do anything, or they risk screwing themselves over.

Oh hey I was posting in this thread.

Mainly the carry reciprocity bills that have been pretty much non-starters is what I was thinking of. 2, 3 times during Obama's term it came up and died it committee?

The HPA picked up 7 cosponsors last week, and twice that the week before. To compare, the CCW Reciprocity bill in 2013 averaged between 1 and 2 a week for most of its span.

Granted, picking up cosponsors is not a perfect indicator on how a bill will perform in committee and at votes, but it's kinda all we have to really go on until voting happens.

Slender auto-nugget thread.

My feelings for this rifle grow fonder with time. It's such a light rifle, the recoil is practically nothing, even the stock angle helps keep it flat. For a Russian rifle, my example has a very nice trigger. The magazine release requires no effort to actuate, having a long tab that can be accessed with gloves. The magazine well is shaped generously, and the tab for the rock-in magazine is placed in a way to reduce chances of missing the recess and mag-locking; I don't even think it's possible.

It isn't perfect, but it is by far my favorite slav rifle of that particular era.

Like most savage products, they are junky and clunky. Carry them, have yet to sell one.

I would personally look into an Aero Precision that has a bolt and carrier made of proper materials with better QC testing in that price range.

I don't, there are a few pro-gun democrats in the Senate. I see real reform on weapons laws as more possible than repealing Obama or any of the tax and labor stuff that Paul Ryan is pushing. Democrats will line up for filibusters on a lot of topics, but on guns they might not have enough people.
