Are there any other online stores that sell AR15 kits and uppers cheaper than PSA? This isn't cheap anymore at all, fucking hell. I should've bought a whole bunch when they were only $299 a few months ago!
>> No. 109841 ID: f2172d
Not really, no. Supply still hasn't caught up with the demand of two panics back to back.

My LGS is using Geiselle BCGs in their AR builds, simply because they can't find anything else that's less expensive right now.

>cheaper than PSA
Why would you want to do that? I understand building a budget AR and all, but don't go bottom of the bargain barrel. You'll spend more time trying to fix QC issues than shooting reliably. At least go PSA CHF barrel with a carpenter steel MPI bolt.

PSA is tough to beat on price and in my experience they're definitely good enough.

When I bought the PBE AR Mk1 lower years ago, I went with a PSA lower parts kit. I very specifically recall the kit missing (or me losing, to be honest. It was my first AR and I was building it in my living room) one of the very small springs, either a trigger spring or the bolt release spring. I emailed them about it saying it was missing from the kit and they immediately emailed me a replacement, no questions asked. They paid 48 cents or whatever for a stamp to send me a part worth a penny without question. I felt pretty good about it and them and they've had my business ever since.

Delta Team Tactical out of Utah usually has atleast one kit in the $300 range, but for the prices PSA has now, Delta Team has kits that are fairly impressive.

I've built at least 20 guns between DTT and PSA.

You occasionally find AR parts marked "American Tactical," the importer of lots of dubious Turkish stuff. God only knows where they're made or what kind of Chinesium they're made from. PSA gets their BCGs from Toolcraft, which are good to go.

I've got a PSA AR upper I picked up last year as a blem that was on sale. At a couple thousand rounds through it, about 25% of that being assorted steelcase, including a hundred rounds or so of old lacquered steelcase, it has run 100% so far. I haven't bench-rested it or mounted an optic on it yet, but that's next. I can't find the blem. I rattlecanned it with two shades of olive drab camo paint. It's fugly.

The rifle does have a nitrided barrel, which supposedly helps reliable extraction under adverse conditions. I haven't dunked it in mud but I've done mag dumps one after the other with lacquered steel case ammo and it's run like a sewing machines, 100%, no malfunctions yet. I use D&H, NHTMG, Okay Industries, and Magpul mags in it, no problems with any of them.

I will probably end up sticking a Primary Arms poorfag scope on it, on one of their one-thumbscrew poorfag mounts.

If I were choosing between a .308 and a 6.5 Creedmoor in the same platform, is there any reason to go with the .308? With modern bullet design, does the advantage of more bullet mass do enough at closer ranges in terms of terminal ballistics to outweigh the well known external ballistics advantages of 6.5?

.308 due to logistics. Also if you tire of the (308) rifle you have, you can ditch it and be more likely to get a different one in the same caliber and not need to ditch your ammo too. You can just transition easier.
>> No. 109910 ID: a084ff
Logistics, as others have said. Just easier to get and still kills shit dead. I'm albe to find steel case easily at academy.

Personally I went with the .308 and now kind of regret it. :|
>> No. 109913 ID: b09df8
I was thinking of this topic this evening and another thing occurred to me that may be relevant.

30-06 rifles are still a thing. The longer action made them inferior to .308 in terms of weight and accuracy but they carried on because of the potential for the punch from that little extra bit of powder in the longer case.

Is that the same sort of thing we're looking at with 6.5 vs 308? Will .308 continue for 50 more years because it may be more useful than the ballistically superior 6.5 inside certain ranges because it can deliver more bullet weight on-target? What will 30-06 look like by then? Or will it and 300 Win-Mag have both been supplanted by 300 PRC because the action length and accuracy and weight issue will have been solved by then?

Cartridge progression is a weird and wild thing considering game animals haven't changed for millenia.
>> No. 109914 ID: aff0ce
Years ago I'd have agreed, but I just ordered an MDRX in 6.5. The only logistical shortfall I shortfall I see for 6.5 right now is if you wanted a semi auto, you'll probably have to order one, but same could be said for 308 right now.

I debated the same all year before ordering. Ammo wise there is plenty of 308 and 6.5 in my area. Picked up a 200 rd box last week.

Man in Possession of Sawed-Off Shotgun Sent to Federal Prison
>Tried to Ditch the Sawed-Off from the Passenger Side of a Car While
A man who illegally possessed a sawed-off shotgun was sentenced today to more than three years in federal prison.

Francisco Rubio, age 25, from Waterloo, Iowa, received the prison term after a guilty plea to possession of an unregistered National Firearms Act device.

In a plea agreement, Rubio admitted that on October 11, 2019, he knowingly possessed a Mossberg 500, 20 gauge sawed-off shotgun with an overall barrel length of less than 18 inches. That day, Waterloo police officers were dispatched to an alleyway behind a residence after receiving a report that individuals were attempting to break into a car. When an officer arrived, he observed Rubio seated in the passenger side of a red car. The driver of the red vehicle was running away from a different vehicle. The driver got into the red car and backed down the alley. Ignoring police commands to stop, the driver continued backing her car down the alley until she reached the roadway. The driver then turned her car onto the road and attempted to flee from the police. During the pursuit, the driver turned her car onto another alleyway. While they were traveling down this alleyway, Rubio threw the sawed-off shotgun out of his passenger window

Rubio was sentenced in Cedar Rapids by United States District Court Judge C.J. Williams. Rubio was sentenced to 46 months’ imprisonment. He must also serve a three-year term of supervised release after the prison term. There is no parole in the federal system.

This case was brought as part of Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN). PSN is the centerpiece of the Department of Justice’s violent crime reduction efforts. PSN is an evidence-based program proven to be effective at reducing violent crime.

Through PSN, a broad spectrum of stakeholders work together to identify the most pressing violent crime problems in the community and develop comprehensive solutions to address them. As part of this strategy, PSN focuses enforcement efforts on the most violent offenders and partners with locally based prevention and reentry programs for lasting reductions in crime.

I've bought my first gun illegally off some hippie guy.
It's a .38 Colt Detective Special with black rubber grips. I wanted to check out the year it was produced in but the serial number doesn't match up. Mine has two letters "SA" and four digits. I looked it up on Colt's website and it says the gun should be Single Action Army. Wat means?

No, it's exactly the same but the barrel bushing on this one is particularly stiff to rote. I have to hit it with something plastic to make it move.

Do you try to remove the plug/recoil spring first before removing the slide, or the other way around?
>> No. 109904 ID: ddf784
Plug and spring before the slide. But even when the plug and spring is out and the slide is removed when I try to take the barrel out and need to rotate the bushing to the other side it's still stiff in the slide. I dunno, maybe I have very weak fingers but I think the bushing is probably not OEM and is too tight in the slide or something.

I haven't been to this image board in years, so I'm not sure if this is appropriate to ask about, but I really need some information and it's too late at the moment to call anyone. I'm trying to apply for a concealed handgun permit in the state of Louisiana. I have served in the military and the application form states that this means I can provide my DD214 discharge certificate as proof of firearms training in lieu of proof of attending a civilian training course. However, the application form has a field asking for an instructor number. I have very little idea of what to put there. Would that be a number on the DD214 or something on my Joint Services Transcript? I've been putting this off for years because it's so convoluted. If no one has any answers here, I'll just call a licensed instructor and ask. Thank you.

I got a concealed carry license in Arkansas and let me tell you that you are worrying over nothing. Go to that Saturday firearms instruction course. It will mostly be helpful instructing you over the laws of where you can pack your heat and the general law of self-defense and when you can use deadly force. The actual target shooting (for me in Arkansas and Colorado) was pretty much a formality. Just hit the target a few times. Qualify with an automatic pistol because some states will restrict your carry to revolvers only if you bring a revolver.

Am I nuts for wanting this? Having a belt-fed .223 rifle sounds fun and I can pull it off for less than $5k. The M249 has a pretty simple sheet metal design and there just aren't that many other options for a belt-fed rifle out there.

The RPD is belt fed and feeds from the left side. The sights are of a standard AK pattern but with added windage controls. The ammunition belt is typically held in a steel drum attached to a bracket underneath the receiver. There is also a cleaning rod which runs across the left side of the receiver.

The belt for the RPD is in 2 50 round sections which attach in the middle. The 2 sections are non-disintegrating however and hangs off of the receiver. The belts are rolled up and place into the drum, the rattle from the loose rounds is very noticeable.

Rumors of a semi-auto HK21 circle around...
Last time I priced just the parts for this you're looking at 20k and that's for semi auto.
Just the feed mechanism is a dick kicking $5k. https://hkparts.net/product/hk21e-feed-mechanism-complete-p584.htm
The 21 is so fucking neat but it was an answer to a question no one asked. The 21 didn't do anything someone else wasn't doing better or more local.
Shits and giggles I looked up Rock island auction and they sold a transferable one for 32k.
You're in luck otb has one in stock for 35k but it's the long boi so it will be another 3k to cut down that barrel. https://www.reddit.com/r/guns/comments/ffg1nk/i_see_people_posting_for_308_day_but_i_think_it/fjyg3mx/

So I actually ended up getting second place in the Tac Optics division of a local area monthly comp.

Discovered the following

-115gr doesn't really work on plates well
-115gr has a greater rise than 147gr
-people overlook height over bore a lot
-people will put their body pressure on a bare ass barrel and wonder why they aren't making hits
-pistol lamps don't throw very well even on AR pistols
-brakes and comps are generally shit at dissipating gases at night
-people scoff at pressure pads are generally the same people who use constant on while shooting
-those same people also have lamps that turn off and on via recoil, so they have to shoot twice to get back on target
-getting whiteout over your optic doesn't mean keep shooting
-usually a handgun falling out will only DQ a single person per match, because everyone else will go back to their cars for some reason and produce screwdrivers for some reason
-there aren't ever enough people to help with set up or tear down

Got it brand new in 2016, it's a 583-series. Haven't tested it properly in a bench.

We had not one, not two, BUT THREE people insisting on taking their IPSC safety course with 1911s in .45 this weekend. Had to do the course with less reps total of each exercise, because Team Boomer had to load their mags so often. It's still fun as hell seeing the one guy who shoots .45 good, and watching those big ass buckets almost give the RO a concussion when the brass hits him.

I don't think it counts but I've been considering getting into NRA Smallbore Pistol. The black part of the target with the scoring rings is 3 1/16" across and you shoot standing unsupported, one handed, duellist point stance, from 50 feet, against a timer.

I think I need to up my skills a bit further before trying that, though I can hold the X-ring in a B27 (2" wide by 3" tall) 80%+ of the time at 30 feet. I'd feel better about it if I were more consistent, but I keep getting in a hurry, jerking the trigger, etc. and yanking about one in five out as far as the 9-ring.

...this is with a Ruger Mk III 22/45 with irons that's stock except for Hogue rubber grips. I've got a stainless Hunter Model with all VQ innards but I don't shoot it nearly as much because I don't want to get spoiled by a two-pound trigger with almost all the reset and takeup dialed out of it. I start off slow and then move up to about one round a second after I warm up, then the last few mags I expend practicing fast head shots, in the hopes that the important parts will transfer over to centerfire handguns. I haven't been to the range in months, though, between the Wu Flu lockdowns and some more recent health problems that have appeared.
