  Came across this because I've bought stuff from DAA before. Seems pretty neat, considering that it's a free app. Thought I'd share.

I don't know about the centerfires, but I have heard that the rimfires are made of Zamak which is nickel plated then brass plated.

Centerfires are usually hardened brass with steel fire control groups. They also have models with steel receivers.

Their budget .22s are made of that Zamak shit, which for a .22 isn't bad. Their more expensive .22s are built like their centerfires.

You won't find a loading gate for the .22s, high chance of deforming the brass while loading. There's a reason they didn't catch on.

>brass plated

I hate to be That Guy, and I hate to ask stupid questions, but brass isn't an element of the periodic table and so I have never understood what "brass plating" means. I know people use the term, I know that, for example, Remington uses it on bullets for some of their rimfire ammunition.

Electroplating is normally done with a single chemically pure element that is electrolytically deposited in a thin layer of 99.99999%+ pure metal coming out of solution at the anode. Brass is an alloy of copper and zinc and I thought you could only electroplate pure metals.

I seem to recall reading that "brass plated" plumbing fixtures are generally polished, plated with zinc, and coated with shellac with yellow dye in it to make them look like brass, but that seems impractical for things like lead bullets, or a firearm receiver.

I know there are people here who Know Stuff. Tell me what's going on here, pls.

Help me with knife harpenining?

so i got a sharpmaker and a swiss army knife OHT as my knife. i reground it and got burrs on both sides but can not get a sharp edge. what am i doing wrong? not removing the burr?
>> No. 103410 ID: 3f7131
The sharpmaker has a 40 degree and a 30 degree setup. Victorinox says to keep a 15-20 degree angle when sharpening, so I'd go with the 30.

Neither of the stones are particularly aggressive, so if in regrinding it you change the angle, you may want to start with a heavier grit stone. In my experience, the sharpmaker is really just for touching up dulled tools while my heavier grit stones are for restoring them.

>> No. 103413 ID: 1b9ff7
the burr must be removed for sharpness. Bevel angle and polish are secondary to having two flat planes terminate cleanly. You can either use finer stones to work the burr off leaving a high polish edge, or strop it to break it off leaving a rougher but still very sharp edge
>> No. 103414 ID: 54180e
>>103410
Its worth specifying 30 degrees INCLUSIVE, meaning 15 degrees from center for each edge (so as to not confuse the new guy), which is a nice slicer.

Swiss Army knives use a nice soft steel, theyre almost impossible to not get sharp.
Try slicing some paper, if it bites and tears the paper you got a toothy edge and some burs. In other steels this could be points of uneven carbides but being that the Victorinox has almost none to speak of its almost certainly a burr.
If it slices, but just not really well then your angle is probably too wide and the blade is too thick behind the edge.

As far as "regrinding" you wont be doing any regrinding or re profiling with a sharp maker. Just make sure you're letting the stones do the work and you focus on even strokes at the right angle.

I've seen a few of these in various shops in Texas. I believe these guys are based in Spring, TX.

They make some very wild designs, very skeletonized, and have a wide variety of crazy colors. I saw one that was done in the colors of a Dr. Pepper can, for example. White, blue, all kinds of stuff. Image is their 'Old Glory' model.

These things look hella fun, but are they worth a shit? Company claims to have the most modern tools, incredible tooling precision, etc.

Anyone have experience with one of these things?

I wonder how much gas leakage there would be and if it's more annoying than on a classic AR15? Probably wouldn't want to run one suppressed I'd imagine.

I've never really understood the skeletonizing upper/lower receivers either. There's really nothing on them to remove without compromising the integrity of the gun.
If a guy wants to spend money weight savings, then he should look first and foremost at the barrel, then at the optics/mounts. I also wouldn't mess with the bolt carrier groups either, as that is a direct and poorly tested change to reliability.

I do wish aluminum sleeved barrels were more of a thing. Last I checked the ones from Lothar Walther were around $800 which is "just buy a different gun" territory.

I actually should 3d print my own fletching jig. I own a 3d printer. It would make my life a lot easier to not have to rely upon the range owner's equipment to make my own arrows, which I will need to do by myself eventually.

Also, range report. Today was my first day shooting these bamboo arrows and comparing them against my shoot from yesterday with my carbon arrows.

My carbon arrows weren't able to hold a group at 10m, and I rarely actually hit the target at all.

My bamboo arrows held a group at 20m on a standard 18m traditional archery 40cm ring target. Zero misses.

It's really bizarre. Everything on paper says that my carbon arrows should be better. Everything. Spine charts say my bamboo arrows are too lightly spined. They flex unevenly depending on how you flex them! Yet, they fly straight in flight, and my carbon arrows wobble about as if they are *under spined*.

I don't get it.

If you get a hang for knapping please share it. I never could get something passable out of glass.

Here's the STL's of the jig, by the way. I just used some nails for the hinges and that's fine since they aren't a terribly important part.

I recently acquired a 12 gauge Remington Model 11 from 1928 w/ a 26" barrel and Poly-Choke. She's a little rough around the edges and a true working girl. I'm going to chop her down, but I can't decide how. Do I take her back to 18.5" and tube extend'er, AOW ala Bonnie and Clyde "Whippet" (see pic), or keep the stock and chop the barrel one shell length north of the mag tube?

My safe has other shotguns for hunting and home defense; this was more of a spur-of-the-moment, let's do something fun and different for a change acquisition.

Right

There!

Also isn't there some fiddling you have to do to the gas system on these (Model 11 and A4s) to make them cycle correctly when you chop the barrel?
>> No. 103177 ID: 6057a8
>>103176
Model 11s should be long recoil, the gun might cycle a little harder with less barrel, but IIRC these guns have friction rings to adjust cycling. Not sure a bit less barrel it'll make that much difference to begin with, the front end of a shotgun barrel doesn't weigh that much.

Much to the disappointment of my wife, an Auto 5 and another Model 11 followed me home from a semi local show. The guy was highly motivated to move them which made me leery, but after getting them home and scrubbing them down, I feel my purchase was a deal.

The new Model 11 requires a new recoil spring, trigger spring, and main spring retaining screw.

The Auto 5 is functional the way it is but could use new furniture (a couple cracks and chips) and a friction ring.

After I get them all up and running I'll take them out, see which patterns the best, and keep that one in it's original configuration. The other two though... Chop! Chop! I'm thinking one 18.5" with mag extension and the other SBS.

Not bad for a grand total of $600 for all three shotguns. Well, so far...

For some inexplicable reason, large bore snub nose revolvers are the most aesthetically pleasing handgun to me. I know in my head that they're ugly, but in my heart, there's just something about them...

Pic is a cut down Colt 1917 in .45acp. It looks like the kind of thing a depression era gambler would stuff in his coat.
