So, lets say I took a .32acp pistol and decided to huff some crack. I also own a reloading bench. Recently I read the wikipedia for the 5.7mm round.

I decide to handload, spend a bunch of time and effort putting a spitzer round with a plastic/aluminum core. My goal is to get the highest velocity possible without the gun exploding in my hands.

Is my pistol likely to feed this abomination and what kind of performance can I expect?
>> No. 105863 ID: 241b9d
.32ACP pistols tend to be simple blowback operated. Overloading little pot metal pistols may cause the runaway slide to kick some of your teeth in as it goes flying off to freedom.

Given their track record with their .380 pocket pistols, I'd pass on anything Diamondback. That being said, we sold their AR pistols like hotcakes cause their price point was so affordable.

Years ago, some people were questioning this and some replied that they are looking at transparent HK G36 assault rifle mags (or long steel magazines with windows cut in them to view how many rounds you have). The bottom part of a loaded magazine is filled with the follower and compressed spring, so you don't see the shiny brass cartridges filling the entire length of the magazine, but this is normal.

The British cops that get called in when police officers are being shot at (with proper guns, not balmy Airsoft toys) are the Counter Terrorist Specialist Firearms Officers (CTSFO) or the Trojans, the Metropolitan Police's armed response units.

Here are some CTSFO with some M16 mags that suspiciously look short a few rounds...

Gun Review: FN M249S Semi-Automatic SAW
FN Manufacturing has been cranking out weapons in Columbia, South Carolina for the U.S. military for years now, winning contracts for everything from the infantry man’s friend, the M4, through the explosively fun M240B. Up until last year the civilian side of the house had been forbidden from offering civvy-legal versions of their military guns — the closest we’d gotten was their FN-15 rifle released in 2014. But last year all that changed and the “Military Collector” series was born. Now the average American can purchase a proper M4 or M16, spec’ed out exactly the same as the military gets them (minus the full-auto setting, no matter what you may hear on MSNBC). The most awesome offering in this collection so far: the Military Collector M249S.
The original M249 was developed in the early 1970’s. The U.S. military had briefly fielded the Stoner 63 light machine gun (LMG) in Vietnam as a way to provide front line troops with a lighter machine gun that was easier to maneuver through the thick brush and jungles of the area, eventually looking to replace the much heavier M60 and M2. While the Stoner design had worked, the military wanted something better. A Belgian company called FN had been in development of their FN MINIMI LMG for a few years by the time the U.S. decided to look for a replacement, and in a head to head competition in 1980 their design beat out both H&K (HK21A1) as well as Colt (who just thickened the barrel on an M16 and called it good) for the contract.
Something to note about the M249S is that it is a bit different than the other offerings in the Military Collector series. Where the Military Collector M4 is identical to the as-issued version, the M249S is instead a mix-and-match version that has been cobbled together from different eras of the M249 to create the most visually appealing and enjoyable example of the firearm possible. The purist inside me is complaining, but the execution doesn’t leave much room for argument. http://www.thetruthaboutguns.com/2016/06/foghorn/gun-review-fn-m249s-semi-automatic-saw/

  Or you can make a reproduction of the old hand-cranked Gatling Guns. I have seen 1/4 scale models that fire .22 LR and full-sized ones that fire .45/70 Govt.
Reproduction 1877 "Bulldog" Gatling Gun https://youtu.be/ildteJbZ9Jw
Thanks to a friendly collector, we had the chance to take out one of the new, gorgeous reproduction 1877 Gatling guns being sold by Colt. It's a near-exact replica, with the added feature of being able to crank backwards to safely clear any loaded cartridges out of the action. Being a Bulldog model, it has 5 short barrels (18.25") chambered for .45-70, enclosed in a full brass jacket to keep the action clean. Colt claims it will do 800 rounds/minute, but we got it going a bit faster...

Thanks to an interesting quirk of US gun laws, the Gatling is not considered a machine gun - so anyone who can possess a bolt action rifle can own and shoot one of these. The crank handle is considered a trigger, and each partial turn fires a single round. Since a single discrete motion doesn't fire multiple rounds, it's not subject to the registration and transfer tax of a machine gun under the NFA.

  M134 Minigun: The Modern Gatling Gun https://youtu.be/rIlwHT4IdRc
The General Electric M134 "Minigun" is essentially an electrically-powered Gatling gun - the conceptual operation of the gun is identical to Dr. Gatling's original creation. What has changed, however, is the chambering (it's in 7.62 NATO), the power source (an electric motor), and the feed mechanism (belt-feed using M60 links instead of the Gatling's Accles, Broadwell, or Bruce feeds). The weapon was a scaled down version of a 20mm rotary powered cannon devised for aircraft armament after WW2, hence the "mini" name. It was used primarily as helicopter armament, although it has found its way only ground vehicles as well. Firing between 3000 and 6000 rounds per minute, the Minigun is ideal for aerial engagements where the gunner only has a brief moment on target and needs to fire as much as possible during that moment.

It is a truly awe-inspiring weapon, and quite an experience to fire! In addition to destroying a truck with it, we will look at disassembly and functioning of the minigun - the delinking mechanism is really the most complex part of the weapon, and a very interesting device.

It's awesome on a single action 'cause you can let the recoil slip the gun up so the hammer's right there for re-cocking. I don't really think that's really super cool for anything that's not a single action revolver, but hey whatever floats your boat.

It is true but they aren't a very good choice for defense, you could use one for intimidation or to hurt a dude in light clothing but a can of pepper spray/CS is probably better both at stopping a threat and being non-lethal.

Traumats have a nasty reputation of being pretty random in terms of their damage. You can shoot someone, he won't give a shit and still beat you up or you'll shoot a guy in some weird spot without any intention, he'll die and then you're fucked.

As for actual weapons, I don't remember it well but from the top of my head you can get them for sporting purposes like bullseye, IPSC, etc but you normally don't care about that because I don't think you get to take those guns home. Maybe they changed it, I'll look into it.

Or you can get a smoothbore license. It will require medical papers from your local prevention center that say you aren't a registered nutter and/or drug addict, papers that say you've had gun lessons, a fortified gun case in your residence, doesn't have to be a proper gun safe but it's better if it is one. Your local beat cop will have to OK the thing before you can buy your gun, iirc. Then you have to submit the gun to the police for them to inspect it, fire and register. Then you can have the bloody thing to go hunt or shoot bottles in your country house backyard.

Play with it for a year then go submit it again to be inspected and fired, you have to do that shit every year. After 5 years of owning a smoothbore you can get a rifle permit, the procedure is similar, iirc.

I've probably forgotten a bunch of steps but the whole thing is an huge ordeal costing you time and money so many people don't bother but then again, many do.

Can you possess pistols (other than rubber bullet pistols) in Russia?

Special restrictions are imposed on the circulation of civilian weapons. Prohibited firearms are those with a cartridge capacity of more than ten bullets, those that can fire in bursts, those with a barrel length of less than 500 millimeters or an entire length under 800 millimeters, and those that can be shortened to a length of under 800 millimeters without losing their shooting capacity. Rifled-bore sporting guns and pneumatic guns with a pumping power of more than 7.5 joules and a caliber of more than 4.5 millimeters must be kept at shooting ranges. https://www.loc.gov/law/help/firearms-control/russia.php#Acquisition

Not realistically. You either have to get a commendation pistol, or get an antique one or a replica of one. It has to be a model produced before 1899 and it can't use a uniform cartridge.

You can also go to a shooting range and give them money for a pistol that will be reserved personally for you at that range, but you can't carry it or keep at home.

It served us well. It was one of the most relevant fighting rifles built in the 20th century, but what about the 21st? My goals are...

1) Rebuild a M1 and make it mission capable for another century without anyone realizing what just happened.
2) It must adapt to an ever changing world that it was not meant for.
3) Accurate? Yes
4) A change in weight and balance
4) A lie...
5) Must use modern materials as much as possible
6) Of course reliable
7) Make old people happy- or maybe not.

All questions, comments and advice welcome. So it begins.

Much like the design's reputation, this thread wont die.

>>Range trip writeup please.

In my hands in the prone it shoots under 2'' at 100 meters with iron sights.

At 200 meters it still seems to hold under 2'' width groups. In picture related I was probing a bit on the elevation by changing the point of aim (thought I was missing). As you can see all 8 rounds hit the target and stayed in a narrow strip up the target.

Took it out a week ago at a semi-optchan-ish shoot. Blew up 30lbs of tannerite at 200+ meters on the first shot. Mammoth witnessed an oak tree historically.

Overall a solid shooting M1. Very accurate for what it is.

I didn't relax when daddy was elected and took advantage of everyone trying to slim down inventory. Vehicle AR pistol project is wrapped up, have a good stash of 5.56 and lancer/magpul follower GI mags. If I wasn't broke as fuck I'd be bulking up my weak points like more tourniquets/medical supplies, lighter armor, etc. But that's regardless of current events.

AR sales have picked up, but not really anything crazy. Hate to say it, but they've been really shitty people and universally pretty fucking stupid. Like "I'm anti gubmint,me too but I also don't know how to use computers so I'm never quite sure what's happening around me and am angry about it". I literally had someone ask me if I had heard about "this shooting in Las Vegas" today and they wanted to know which AR to buy before they get banned.

I'm mainly just sick of the hordes of people looking for bump stocks. I had a little fun playing dumb to what they were with some loud snaggle toothed fuck today. Pretty much the equivalent of "no speak english" Anyone who brings up bumpstocks is a huffpo writer. Anyone who asks if we have one for sale is a well trained huffpo writer.

  When I had sent it in, I'd subtly asked for black parts to replace the odd color on my used RFB; I received it back with an entirely new assembly - in the same damn color. So I asked, since I already have the necessary screws/pins, if I could just buy what I needed and replace it myself.

>Technically you can just buy the set of polymer gips and handguards, but i would not suggest going that route. Just to try and put it into perspective, we have two technicians who's only job is building RFB grips, and even with the special tools and jigs sometimes they have problems getting them together. The price for the complete assembly is $498.
