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.

But the SKT40 officially existed and didn't look like your take on it.
Since there's an SVDS, SVTS might be better? :)

I'm going to order an engraved back plate for my Glock 42 and Im looking for lulzy stencils to use. I tried posting on /k/ but apparently this simple request was infinitely too difficult for the kids to handle.

If anyone has anything decent, feel free to post up. You'd definitely be helping me out.

I really want one of the new savage msr 15 recons. The specs look amazing for the price 223 wylde, melonite oating, 1in8 twist that will shoot cheap ammo well, blackhawk blaze Nile stage, freefloat monolithic handguard, flip up sights included, and buds has them in stock for 750. I know the bottom of the gun market is about to fall out but I want to sell some of my stuff and a gun to buy one of these.
Anyone else have thoughts on these?

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.

http://www.brownells.com/firearms/rifles/semi-auto/oem-mid-length-16-rifle-w-25-gift-card-prod81838.aspx

Think there's a $30 off with free shipping coupon for a couple days on that one.

I only cracked open one Savage but it lacked any HP or MP markings.

I would have to agree with your statement on Hughes repeal.
even if it does get repealed it is no guarantee that prices will drop.
if anything the conversion parts will go up in price and the cost of doing those conversion will increase also.
>> No. 102675 ID: 1519ac
>>102673
I mean, if it did get repealed then the prices would drop because there'd no longer be an artificial scarcity. People could crank out DIASs and lightning links very cheaply even if the bigger manufacturers didn't want to sell for some reason. That's all moot though since it won't happen.

I sold them too. I'm not expecting a Daniel defense level of quality. I want something light, and accurate enough. Ihave two other ars already. I know savages feel chintzy but I've seen how accurate they are. If someone offered me a savage model 10' for my rem 700 I'd take it in an instant

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.

7.62x39. I've seen identical J shaped mags for x39 ARs from the vietnam era, I think newer x39 mags have less of a kink. I think the capacity is 30, but I wouldn't be surprised if it was 40 or 45.

It appears the HK433 is a cheaper alternative to the HK416 because the latter is too expensive for the german military budget.

The handguard appears to be an evolution of their HK416A5 handguard. The rifle seems a tiny bit Masada inspired but different enough to have a distinct feel. Especially the non reciprocating charging handle has a clear HK feel to it, as does the selector lever.

This looks to have an aluminum upper receiver, so it probably won't have the same wandering zero issues as the G36. Gotta love the German government though. How many times has HK dicked them over, now? And they don't look for rifles from anyone else.

Does the bottom of the magwell have the same angle as that on AR-15s, or is it somewhat more horizontal?

>>102655
I'd bet that this works the same as the SCAR, in that rifles with any barrel length get the same length of handguard, whereas the longer-barreled 416s get a somewhat longer (bulky as shit) handguard. Do different 416s have different lengths of pistons, for that matter?

Relatedly, here we have another modern rifle with ease of modification prioritized over getting the off hand far forward on the handguard. Honestly, how useful is it really to easily change barrel lengths in a military context? Will soldiers be swapping out barrels for every mission, based on what they think they're going to be doing? How much of a pain in the ass would that be for logistics?

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.
https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLJUaiRIEduNXoal2_PkBZi0vDCIcEPxUn

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.
http://www.cabelas.com/product/savage-174-arms-model-10t-tactical-bolt-action-rifle/1695199.uts

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.

Call me crazy, but i've never actually seen anyone use more than one set of rings on a scope... Why would you even bother when one quality set will do just fine. If you're really worried about the scope being knocked loose then use some resin on the inside of your rings to add stickiness. I've never had any issues with my scope being knocked out of alignment and i've driven it pretty hard into barricades. I also routinely use it as a carry handle for my 17 lb rifle.
>> No. 102055 ID: bcb52e
As for rings. Look at Seekins precision rings. They're usually machined from the same block of aluminum so you won't have to bother lapping anything and they're not terribly expensive. Vortex also re-brands one of their ring sets as the "Vortex Precision Matched" rings.

I still swear by Spuhr though. Always will.

Not to necro my own thread but I finally got the rifle put together and zero'd for 100 yards with XM80C. Final build is the Savage 110 FCP, PA 4-14 FFP 44mm scope on an Armalite unibody mount. Bipod is a no-name Chinese one I stole off my .22 (for now) and I picked up an American Mountain Supply squeeze bag which is great. Total cost is still <$1000.

Picture doesn't demonstrate it but the PA scope is very clear and plenty bright for my needs. I have no real experience with nicer scopes so my opinion here is pretty useless, but I like it so far.

I'm shooting about 1.5 MOA at 100 yards if I'm doing my job. I'm positive the rifle can do better, so now it's on me.

Anyways, thanks for the advice guys.

  Does anybody have any other YouTube channels where they test firearms? I currently have AKOU and Wound Channel.

I like how AKOU are objective to whatever they're testing and they call manufacturers out. I quite like Rob Ski.

The conclusion from this one is funny as hell, fucking IO.

Found a gun channel that does have nice things. Not many channels I see do shit like .22LR at 720 yards and shit.

In one of their recent vids, they take a 375 Gibbs (improved Cheytac) out to 4300 yards. The flight time is absolutely mental.

Type 97 Chi-Ha tank with a 57mm main gun. It was obsolete by the middle of WW2, but I wonder if anyone here knows of guys in the USA shooting anything of approximately the same size. Let us say that I get a license for a DD, where are the cannoneers at? I think it would be a fun hobby and lobbing 37mm or 57mm shells is a lot more affordable than 88mm, etc.

I bought pic related, its great. I'm going to make a mock-up wooden round on my lathe and paint it. After that I thought I'd try metal-spinning some dummy rounds for decor, but I was also thinking that I could start hanging out with the big boys, shooting the real stuff.

Except for the M992(those are a whole mess of bullshit having nothing to do with being DDs) you can ignore that article, it isn't true. A single ATF agent got overzealous and took some chalks when they shouldn't have, but they are neither explosives nor DDs and this has been confirmed by multiple people in the know. Hopefully the incoming administration puts a choker on ATF so shit like this doesn't happen again, but ATF gunna ATF.
