Also, pictures of Colt's blueprints for the moderator are online. Saw them in a barfcom thread.

But yes, the moderator I have makes my 10.5 inch AR sound like a 20" barrel in full suto. Helps when I shoot at an indoor range.

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?

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?

> People complained about the SCAR "boot" stock.

I like my SCAR boot stock. It's really great for shooting backwards with a mirror from the top of shoul... what the fuck...


Looks badass. Any word on the materials? When they say "less expensive" that usually means plastic... and that didn't go so well for the previous rifle.

Good lord, those guys look like an FN commerical aimed at the Gulf States rather than a military.

I like the forward charging handle location, the modular lower handguard, and the multiple built in sling swivels. Looks fairly well thought out, though knowing H&K it will be lolmoney.

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.

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.

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.

Sweet. Now time to figure out what kind of ammo the gun likes. My RPR really likes the 155gr Hornaday Steel Match. The Prvi Partizan Ammo match and PMC X-Tac were meh. Federal GMM 168 works as expected.

  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.

Fuck a buttstock, mount it to a steadycam harness, give it a video sight and an eyepiece, then do it up with some motorcycle grips. Maybe have a clutch cable that when you squeeze it, the steadycam gear locks up to help keep it on target. (Heh, as if)

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.

Nice! The Rubber shot looks like fun. That's a lot of 40mm.


ATF Rules 40mm Practice “Chalk” Rounds Are Explosives, Destructive Devices...

Well, might as well go bigger! Why not get a DD if they are going to pull crap like this?

>“Ok so a update. The agent that showed up was an actual bomb tech. I surrendered the rounds under protest per the advice of a attorney. The bomb tech was a really cool guy. He agreed that it was pretty stupid and he hated to do it but he was being forced to help out with the case. He did also tell me that they had sent him out to take 40mm chalk rounds under the same case. I walked out to the truck with him and watched him place the rounds in the explosive magazine in his truck.
>> No. 102311 ID: 59033e
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.

From d0041a, in the CZ P10 thread, for whatever reason:


>The U.S. Army on Thursday awarded Sig Sauer a contract worth $580 million to make the next service pistol based on the company's P320 handgun.

>Sig Sauer beat out Glock Inc., FN America and Beretta USA, the maker of the current M9 9mm service pistol, in the competition for the Modular Handgun System, or MHS, program.

>One of the major goals of the effort was to adopt a pistol chambered for a more potent round than the current 9mm. The U.S. military replaced the .45 caliber 1911 pistol with the M9 in 1985 and began using the 9mm NATO round at that time.

>Two sources confirmed to Military.com that Sig submitted to the Army .40-caliber and 9mm pistols for consideration. One source said the Army ultimately selected the 9mm version.

>The Army in December down-selected to two finalists for the competition: Sig and Glock, which had submitted its Glock 17 and Glock 19 models for consideration. Given the size of the contract, Glock is widely expected to protest the decision.

>Army officials informed Beretta USA and FN America at the show that they had been dropped from the competition in the recent down-select decision, according to a service source who is not authorized to speak to the press. But confusion reigned as reporters informed company officials of the Army's announcement.

Maybe, but it devaluates the whole X-series brand name.
It's literally a polymer gun which they ADDED WEIGHT ONTO because the balance was utter trash. Might as well make an alu lower for it at that point and have that explain the markup.

As GVD said, there's always the lowest common denominator idiots. Also likely, is that they put it on there specifically so the DOD could target the contract to get the sidearm they wanted while still having the "test trial" pony show.
>> No. 102525 ID: c11034
To be honest my only problem with the M9 was the location of the safety. I got tiny hands and my thumb couldn't reach easily. Made me slow during the "new" USMC pistol qual.

Other than that I found her to be accurate and fairly pleasant to shoot.

Would have bough a 92FS if not for that safety. How I ended up with the Hi Power.

absolutely. the proper X-series are completely different beasts than the regular P22x, fully machined from steel with match triggers, match sights and match barrels.
this one has holes in the slide and weight in the plastic.

Unless I missed it, no one has posted about the new CZ offering... a Glock clone.

Personally I'm not too excited, since there are already tons of things just like this on the market, but I can see why CZ would make it since they are sure to sell like hotcakes.

Designed to fit into Glock 17 holsters I think.

So, I'm finishing up a 8" suppressed build on a transferable lower. I just got it running about 100% with and without the suppressor but needless to say, it's next to impossible to keep your eyes open with all the gas I'm getting in my face shooting this thing full auto.

What's the best option for a charging handle here? It seems to be the go to option for cutting down gas to the face. I've looked at these three...


Anyone have any experience with any of these or cutting down gas blowback in general? I'm open to throwing high temp silicone on anything along with drilling vent holes into the charging handle as well if these three choices are gimmicks, seems to be what a lot of people are doing. Overall just looking for the best option.

So after much research and thinking I believe I've found my solution.

Fist off, the gas is primarily escaping from between the BOTTOM of the charging handle and not to top. Most of these charging handles only attempt to block gasses from the top and from what I can tell only the PRI one even tries to vent from the bottom. So issue number one is perusing a product that was flawed in design from the get go.

I'm going to do some experimenting with my mill sometime in the next few days. Along with some high temp silicone on the top (to ensure all gasses are directed into the newly designed bottom) I'm going to try and mill a series of angled trenches onto the bottom of the charging handle's rear.

I'm using PRI's idea as a base. However I'm going to enlarge it in both depth and width and make it vent out both sides to hopefully work better. It should also hold up to abuse better than a series of holes.

A freakish success!

Cuts the amount of gas I'm getting in my face by at least 60%, didn't even put silicone on it. Not bad for five minuets of labor.

I think I can improve on the design as well, give me a few weeks and I may have something worth mass producing.
