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.

Been meaning to drift the sights over because it does shoot well enough.

I don't often want to take it out for fear of scratching it or something... I know it's "just an M44" but it's in such good shape I can't help but baby 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.

Maybe I'm just a hipster, but when oddball shit starts showing up in the huge FPS franchises, my desire for it pretty much takes a nose-dive. Seems like a really good "gib money plz" indicator.

So, I'm thinking about updating to a new 9mm suppressor that I can use on both handguns and my SMGs. I currently have my old YHM 9mm cans the Wraith XL and Cobra M2, but they sealed, as well as heavy and beat up (i.e. finish wear and at least one baffle strike). The Wraith can only be used on SMGs and the Cobra is handgun only.

The Sig SRD9 has caught my attention, but I am open to alternatives. My requirements:
1) 9mm, duh.
2) full auto capable
3) can be used on both handguns and SMG/carbines
4) quick detach not necessary
5) titanium or lighter tube
6) will be run dry
7) no baffle material or configuration preference at this time. Looking for 'reasonable' decibel reduction level, but doesn't have to be quietest.
8) $500-1200 price range.

Any recommendations?

Seems like there's fairly big differences when it comes to gas blow back on some of these cans. If you look at the MPX vids, some cans kick back far more gas than others.

Is that a consideration you want to take into account, or isn't it a factor for your guns?

Yes, but it tries to take care of bullet drop, windage & leading the target for you.

I think the rotor wash would only have a minor effect since the bullet is at its maximum velocity when it leaves the barrel, and would only be affected for a short period of time.

I wonder if the tracking point factors in the shooters movement speed.

Also I don't​ think it could be trusted to shoot a hostage taker. Maybe it will execute the perfect shot... Right through the hostage's neck...

As far as I'm aware of, every modern military have this sort of system available, only normally they are pretty much top secret. If these are just officially released models and numbers, I wonder what top-notch systems actually are, and how long they are in the field.

>rangefinder

5.56x45 is fairly seriously affected by rotor wash, but I couldn't say for 7.62x51 or above.

The thing is that the ballistic computer would need to know it's in a helicopter to factor it in in at least a meaningful way and even then, the wash is variable.

  Not sure if this is genius or stupid, but it's neat.

Also fun to brand people with it, I guess. Good luck getting this into a bag right after shooting it.

One of my biggest gripes with AR15s has always been the lack of folding stocks. But this is obviously going a step further.

I would think even a Obrez would be more effective at close ranges then a pistol caliber weapon. From what I know most common pistol rounds aren't all that amazing, relatively slow and don't dump alot of power into a target compared to a pistol round.

However pistol rounds are usually alot lighter, don't need to travel super far to get maximum kill velocity, and don't over-penetrate like most rifle rounds do. Hence why PDWs have some love, they have the best of both worlds.

On the Carter Special there seems to be some confusion on why it was made. Its generally agreed that the reason was the wars in A-stan and Iraqistan and OPERATORS introducing their new hadji friends to the greatest thing Belgium has made since Audrey Hepburn.

The disagreements seems to be whether it was because it was so hard to procure blanks, with most 5.7 ammo production presumably going to fulfilling military contracts or because they were having a tough time acquiring P90 "props" as in the firearms. Either way it has the same result, the Carter Special was made to be used either to fire the super common 5.56 round or to be used in firing scenes because they didn't have enough live fire P90s.

It was probably just a bunch of stuff the armorer for the show already had on hand, I doubt they went out and bought a bunch of new shit to glom together.

Also, while I didn't care for the Ori storyline (what's that Lassie? ANOTHER race pretending to be gods? Better kill all of them too!) and as much as I didn't like the season 9/10 team quite as much as the OG SG1, I was pleased to see things like the MP7 showing up. More than anything, it aided the feeling that they were a present day special operations team making use of the equipment available in the present day.

Plus Teal'c dual wielding MP7s made me smile. Realism be damned.

yeah over penetration worries are why the colt D.O.E. smg conversion came to be , mission drives equipment and all that.

If I were to state pistol rounds in SMG's and SBR's were less than desirable that would color me a hypocrite as an owner of a Brugger & Thomet TP9 ( and wanting quite a few pistol caliber SBR's ) each tool has it's use.
I want to eventually get a PS90 or an AR 57 11" barreled upper whichever comes first , but I have to get my life back on track.

>>104113 And yes dual wielding MP7's while unrealistic / overkill is kinda bad ass in it's own pulpy way, can't say much for the quality of stories in the later seasons as they were "average" but the cinematography and action scenes were good.

Teal'c dual wielding P90s is superior to Teal'c dual wielding MP7s.

Though I did like them using the MP7s. They seemed to mainly use them in missions they were trying to pass as non Tau'ri humans. Which makes sense as the MP7 looks more like a classical weapon compared to the more distinctive P90. The shows portrays other humans like the Lucien Alliance and various planets as having projectile weapons similar if not identical to Earth weapons.

A real problem with using off the shelf props and weapons is sometimes people not from Earth were carrying around things like barely modified MAC-10s and Steyr SPPs (from the episode where SG-1 is carrying around MP7s to not look like Earthers) and not even modified Lugers, Garands, Kar 98Ks, and various AK variants. I mean they atleast try sometimes to portray weapons as alien such as the "Timecop Beretta", the "Timecop Desert Eagle" and the "Bone Jack" Winchester 1887.

One thing I did appreciate though is it seemed like the only person really dual wielding was people not trained by Earth like Teal'c and Bra'tac. The only time I can recall an Earth military person dual wielding was Mitchell using dual MP7s during a dream sequence when he's fighting zombies. Mitchell has a history of dual wielding anyway, mostly pistols named Winona though.

>>104121
>mission drives equipment

Definitely. Why pistol caliber SMGs and PDWs exist, an assault rifle isn't going to be the right tool for every occasion no matter how powerful it is. Its like the old debates about the usage of PDWs and how people tried to paint them as useless because ballistic gel tests showed they were less powerful compared to assault rifles. When people are using a SMG or PDW they might now want or need the body caviting of a larger assault rifle round.

Its a bit like universal camo pattern in thought. Try to make something a jack of all trades means you have a camo pattern that tends to performs worse then dedicated camo patterns, its universally bad. Now of course an AR ain't anywhere close to universally bad unless you are some idiot who still thinks its the 1960s and there haven't been any changes to the first gen Mattel-16s. But trying to use them as a universal platform, atleast from an ammo standpoint, seems like a bad idea. I suppose you can use it as a universal platform with mixed results, an AR can fire 9mm like a MP5, 5.7 like a P90, .45 like a UMP, and even 7.62x39 like an AK.

Not so much a dream sequence as Mitchell's idea of a good TV show. From the episode "200" (the 200th episode of the show. As a result they had a lot of fun with it.) Basically it was SG1 brainstorming with Martin Lloyd (alien living on earth) about creating a TV show to help with creating plausible deniability and all that to help keep the Stargate program covered.

I'd have watched the hell out of Teal'C P.I.

US M2 Carbine, an assault rifle, submachinegun or PDW?
The .30 Carbine metric dimensions are 7.62x33mm and that looks similar to the Sturmgewehr 44's 8mm Kurz' 7.92x33mm round, but the .30 Carbine has a thin case more akin to a pistol cartridge, not a fat bottlenecked assault rifle case like the 8mmK. The .30 Carbine round is more comparable to the .357 Magnum (9x33mmR) pistol cartridge in performance.
A standard .30 Carbine ball bullet weighs 110 grains (7.1 g); a complete loaded round weighs 195 grains (12.6 g) and has a muzzle velocity of 1,990 ft/s (610 m/s), giving it 967 ft·lbf (1,311 joules) of energy when fired from the M1 Carbine's 18" barrel. A .357 Magnum cartridge fired from an 18" rifle barrel, which can have a muzzle velocity range from about 1,718–2,092 ft/s (524–638 m/s) with energies at 720–1,215 ft·lbf (976–1,647 J) for a 110 gr (7.1 g) bullet at the low end and a 125 gr (8.1 g) bullet on the high end. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/.30_Carbine

Its not uncomfortable at all. My only complaint is that it seems to move around a little too much for my tastes, but I can see the combat value. Ended up taking the mag pouch off my M1 carbine and putting it on my single shot .22, where it sufficiently holds 2 50 round boxes of .22, or a bunch of loose ammo for high speed reloads. Its a pain in the ass to keep bending over to grab another round of .22 at your feet when standing, and the pouch fixed that problem really well.

So, I recently went to visit the Waterloo Memorial 1815 museum. Thought I'd post some pics.

The Waterloo 1815 museum was recently expanded, and since the entire area surrounding the battlefield is considered a "protected" site, they chose to build the entire museum underground. Which is kinda neat.

AMERICAN REVOLUTIONARY WAR BRITISH 2ND MODEL SHORT LAND BROWN BESS FLINTLOCK MUSKET PATTERN 1769/1777
$ 6,950.00
An Antique Revolutionary War British 2nd Model Short Land Brown Bess Military Flintlock Musket pattern 1769/1777. 41.75",. 80 cal. barrel with remnants of standard PROOFS struck on the top of breech. Standard pattern brass regulation furniture. Long Land pattern 1756 lock in good mechanical working order. Stock is solid with an old repair around the lock and side plate; some chip loses from the upper edges of fore-end; brass nose cap is missing; worn, scratches and dings from years of service. Visible 'STORES KEEPER' mark on the right side of the comb of stock. The steel ram rod is most likely an American made hand forged replacement. Musket comes with the correct bayonet.

Note; this is one of the primary weapons used in the American Revolutionary War. These muskets are becoming harder and harder to find in any condition ! https://tortugatrading.com/products/american-revolutionary-war-british-2nd-model-short-land-brown-bess-flintlock-musket-pattern-1769-1777

I guess people might use it as a wall hanger. ;)

That's cool. Didn't know there was a large museum dedicated to the battle. Just one more thing I'd like to see someday.
