So a problem with some revolvers in .38 special or .357 magnum is that they can be really snappy and thus less accurate on followup shots. This goes extra for snubbys.
Now the point of revolvers that have the barrels on the bottom of the gun like Matebas or Rhinos is that they distribute the recoil in a way that yields less barrel rise, making follow up shots more easy and accurate.
And the point of the .327 federal magnum cartridge was to get similar power to the .357 magnum but with less recoil.

So WHY THE FUCK has NO gun company (or at least some nerd with a CNC machine) combined these two technologies to create an under-barrel .327 federal magnum revolver? Why? And if you chopped it down, you'd have the lowest recoil possible revolver with that kind of powerful cartridge! How has this not happened already?

Waaaaait wait wait.
MORE powerful than .357 magnum? Now I'd assume .327 federal magnum is more powerful than .38 special without thinking about it very long, but more powerful than .357 magnum? No way, that can't be right.

I'd be more interested in a 44 Magnum or even a .454 Rhino. People choose big bore revolvers for protection against dangerous game and faster follow-up shots there could mean the difference between life and death and they wouldn't mind the weight.

A favorite .44 Magnum revolver is the Ruger New Model Super Blackhawk single-action. They are available in 3.75" barrels to 10.50" with very beefy frames. I have a 5.5" and she is a nice 6-shooter. Far more handy than my massive Ruger Super Redhawk scoped 9.5" .44 Magnum double-action.

Because revolvers are obsolete. I shot a small revolver in .327 and it was alright. .38 snubbys are pretty unpleasant. And .357 snubbys...

> Have you had the chance to fire off one of these ultra-air-light-feather weight pocket revolvers? Using a full house .357 Magnum load? If you haven’t, do this; put your Concealed Carry Magazine down, stand up, walk outside to your car or truck and open the hood… and then slam it down on your firing hand. Quite unpleasant.

The Chiappa Rhino does a pretty good job in .38 but is a bit harsh in .357. If I need a gun to specifically shoot from a jacket pocket, a 2" rhino would do the job. If I needed a compact gun for defense, I'd go for a Glock 43, 43x, or Sig P365 any day, because they can actually be reloaded in a reasonable amount of time.

I found the 2" Rhino .357 surprisingly mild to fire with very little muzzle flip. Well, compared to my double-barrel .410 shotgun Derringer or other .38 lightweight snub-noses.

Had the opportunity to test my reloads in an M9 this morning. The primers bulged a little indicating my reloads are too hot. I have 250 rounds left, I may still run them in my carbine and lesson learned load lighter next time. Anyone know if a CZ 75b can handle +P loads?

I used to have to push their polymer lowers when I worked in a gun shop. Chinciest shit ever. Cheap and lightweight, but very little aftermarket worked in it and they'd often crack at the pivot pin.

I just noticed this about 0:37 in to my video when showing it to a friend. Appears to be a flash in the hand guards. Is this normal for PPC ARs? It makes sense that there could be unburned powder burning every so often out of the unused gas port, but how typical should this be?
>> No. 108818 ID: b774b1
I figured this out last year but I forgot to post (like I do for a lot of things). My cartridge overall length was too short, bullet was pressed in too far causing the pressure to be excessive. Simple as that. I handloaded another 500 rounds of 125gr LRN with a COAL closer to the specs in my Speer Vol. 13 book. Zero issues in my carbine, no bulged primers in my dad's M9. Also ran in my CZ without issue. I want another 9mm handgun. That is all.

im stuck on this vidya atm called rising storm 2 vietnam, it has potential but its nothing to write home about

anyway, im wanting to make a mod for it where instead of 32 vs 32 us army against nlf/pavn it would be 7-9 leet sog operators vs 50+ lightly armed charlies, and the SOG guys have to reach checkpoints through the map while charlie zerg rushes, with sog respawns done in a left4dead fashion of reaching a checkpoint to trigger respawns.

to get to the /k/ part of this post im looking for ideas on arming the SOG team, since they are going to be so outnumbered i want to give them extra firepower eg china lake or the starlight nv scope. i was really hoping for a hand portable flame thrower ala the aliens ripley thing because the game already has flame mechanics with a ww2 era flamethrower, but i want to err on the side of reality so if it didnt exist ill nix it.

pasting the list i wrote up, let me know what you think:

stoner 63, m60, rpd *sidearms*: hushpuppy, 45, hipower

i also want to do a good guy vs good guy map, like LRRP dudes in helicopters vs rogue SOG dudes who also use the vc traps. this would be a lot easier to do with the sdk than my original post but it would still be fun with the right map, or just recycling one of the more favored existing maps.

i think i would also add the folding stock ak to most roles and the scoped mas49 to sniper/dm because theyre already in the game

Make sure to include the Swedish Carl Gustav m/45 9x19mm kulsprutepistol (bullet-spraying pistol, aka Swedish-K) or the Smith & Wesson M76 clone. In the early days of the US involvement in the Vietnam War, US special forces and CIA spooks used the Swedish-K as it was a good, reliable SMG and it was not US-made so captured weapons could not directly implicate US involvement (but who do they think they were fooling?).

Plus, this is one of my favorite Vietnam War-era guns.

During the Vietnam War, the US Navy SEALs used the m/45 extensively. One of the gun's qualities which appealed to the US Navy was that the m/45 can fire almost immediately out of the water (over the beach). It also saw use by CIA operatives and advisers. The US Navy was so impressed by the m/45 that when Sweden embargoed the export of weapons to the United States in 1966, Smith & Wesson was given the task of producing a copy. This was designated the Smith & Wesson M76. However, by the time the M76 was ready for combat deployment, the US Navy interest had largely evaporated. Many of the m/45s used by US forces and agencies were devoid of markings, implying clandestine use ("sanitized"). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carl_Gustav_m/45

turns out the suppressed m39 could only go for 2 mags before the can internals had to be replaced, pic related wikipedia told me NSW sent new guts with every 26 rounds. So, probably going to put that one on the backburner. couldnt find a neato flamethrower either so thats out.

Uzi, Sten, MAC10 and swedish K, with suppressors for the first three. Remington 1148 for the 12ga, or the Ithaca 37 included in the game

The big toys will be the LAW and 40mm pump. The LAW will p be based on the RPG7 already in the game, so that might be tough to get correct we'll see

Stoner 63 and M60 shorty, maybe RPD shorty

starlight scope, M16 scopes, a combat knife, colored smokes

Oh and probably some incendiary grenades, and melee tools for the attacking vc's

108758
The Walther Gewehr 43 was the Nazis’ answer to the superlative American M1 Garand. A gas-operated design actually pirated from the Soviet SVT40 self-loading rifle, the G43 was relatively lightweight and offered fast and reliable semiautomatic fire from a detachable ten-round box magazine. Though the magazine was tidy and removable, German Infantrymen were typically only issued two spares and fed the gun instead via standard five-round stripper clips from the top. These strippers were the same sort that fed the bolt-action Kar98k.
The G43 was later designated the K43, but the two weapons were otherwise identical. The G43 included a short length of cleaning rod underneath the barrel. Several soldiers would pool their cleaning rod segments to make a single usable tool.
The rear sight of the G43 was a sliding tangent, while the front sight was a fixed hooded barleycorn. The leather sling mounted on the left side. The safety was a rotating lever at the back of the receiver. A sheet steel re-ceiver cover helped keep the action clean from battlefield crud.
G43 rifles were intended to be issued at the rate of 19 rifles per Infantry company, along with ten separate ZF-4 sights and mounts. Allerberger fired all the new rifles his unit received and selected the most accurate for marksmen rifles. The scopes and mounts were then matched to their host rifles and marked by hand with the gun’s serial number.

Good to see you're still around as well. The collection has grown quite a bit, it is near 3100 cartridges at present. This was a photo I took back in January of the pile that had accumulated which I still needed to sort and catalog.

>>108752
While we did not have the opportunity to shoot this one and it would be of questionable wisdom to do so as the stock exhibited at least two cracks, SVT-38's handle and shoot much like the later SVT-40's. Most of the differences lie in the design of the stock and hand guards, the placement of the cleaning rod and the function of the magazine catch. I did find the SVT-38's mag catch seemed a bit more fiddly than those on the SVT-40 which may have had a hand in why it was redesigned. These two magazines were very snug fits but that can be the case with SVT-40's as well since the locking lug occasionally needs fitting to the individual rifle.

  Federal Court Finds California Magazine Ban Violates the Second Amendment

https://leginfo.legislature.ca.gov/faces/codes_displaySection.xhtml?lawCode=PEN&sectionNum=32310.

IV. CONCLUSION
Magazines holding more than 10 rounds are “arms.” California Penal Code Section 32310, as amended by Proposition 63, burdens the core of the Second Amendment by criminalizing the acquisition and possession of these magazines that are commonly held by law-abiding citizens for defense of self, home, and state. The regulation is neither presumptively legal nor longstanding. The statute hits at the center of the Second Amendment and its burden is severe. ... Finally, subsections (c) and (d) of § 32310 impose an unconstitutional taking without compensation upon Plaintiffs and all those who lawfully possess magazines able to hold more than 10 rounds.

...

California Penal Code § 32310 is hereby declared to be unconstitutional in its entirety and shall be enjoined.

For UK .577 Boxer, people use rare 24 gauge brass cut down and sized to a .62 case. Some home-loaders also cut down 24 gauge brass to 2" for homemade .577 Snyder, an interesting cartridge conversion of the Enfield muzzle-loading .577 rifled musket.

And the experimental T-44 machine gun developed from the German FG 42 and MG 42 machine guns.
U.S. MACHINE GUN T44 7.92MM
Manufactured by Bridge Tool & Die Works, Philadelphia, Pa. in 1946 - The gun is a conversion of the FG42 German, Light, Magazine Feed Machine Gun, with the belt feeding mechanism of the MG42 German, Belt Feed Machine Gun. The mechanical solution for the conversion was provided by the Bridge Tool & Die Works. The weapon is gas-operated blowback type combination; air-cooled; bipod supported; with forward handgrip and rear shoulder stock.
The receiver body in which the essential parts of the gun operate is a sheet metal fabrication. The barrel is permanently mounted into the forward end, and the receiver swaged circumferentially into a recess around the rear end of the barrel and secured by a locking ring, likewise swaged. The hinge member about which the feed mechanism rotates is welded to that portion of the receiver body directly rearward from the swaged area, thereby making the receiver body, barrel and hinge member an integral unit. Holding the receiver body in a normal firing position, there is an opening on the left-hand side running longitudinally from the welded hinge member for the length of the housing. This opening is bridged in one instance at a point located approximately 4" rearward from the hinge member by the ejector assembly. The resultant opening between the hinge member and the ejector assembly permit the receiver plate to position the shell cartridge for insertion into the barrel. Directly opposite this opening there is a similar small opening through which the cartridge cases are ejected. http://ww2.rediscov.com/spring/VFPCGI.exe?IDCFile=/spring/DETAILS.IDC,SPECIFIC=9554,DATABASE=objects

BREAKING NEWS: Hudson Manufacturing Files For Bankruptcy

Posted 1 min ago in Breaking News, Companies by Benjamin F with No Comments
Tags: bankruptcy, H9, hudson, lawsuit

Hudson Manufacturing, makers of the much-vaunted Hudson H9, filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy on March 14th. This is, presumably, in direct response to their previously cataloged troubles. Cambridge Valley Machining has sued Hudson over unpaid debts after being contracted to machine parts for them.
Chapter 7 Bankruptcy

There are several different types, or chapters, of bankruptcies that individuals and companies can file for. Hudson has filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, meaning that they have chosen to liquidate all their assets to absolve their debts.

>So, somewhere above and beyond the millions of dollars of debt that Hudson’s creditors will try to reclaim, there’s almost $100k worth of bought and paid-for H9 components that may never find their way back to their owners. The boxes of disassembled H9s are left in a limbo state. Hudson is no more, as is its ability to pay for assembly, and or return shipping.

Looks like you're out of luck. All pistols that have been shipped to them for repairs are paperweights now. They won't ship them back to you for "liability reasons".

Made a few changes. Went to a URX 3.1 13.5" rail and added Scalar Works PEAK front and rear fixed sights, as well as swapping the Aimpoint mount for a Scalar Works LEAP.

  For BAR fun, there's the 2019 Netflix movie The Highwaymen that follows Frank Hamer and Maney Gault (Kevin Costner and Woody Harrelson), two old Texas Rangers (bounty hunter contractors) who attempt to track down and apprehend notorious criminals Bonnie and Clyde in 1934. The real stars are the guns, of course. Costner walks in to a hardware store and buys an M1921AC Thompson submachine gun, an M1918 Browning Automatic Rifle (BAR), a Colt R80 Monitor (a Colt-manufactured variant of the BAR with a Cutts compensator), a Browning A5 semi-auto riot gun, a Remington Model 8 Autoloading Rifle, among other guns and a big crate of ammo. The highwaymen felt the need for serious firepower because the criminals they were chasing used the same kind of weapons against bank tellers, gas station attendants and cops they encountered. Clyde Barrow's preferred weapon was a custom cut-down model of a Browning Automatic Rifle and Bonnie used a Tommy gun.

The Governor of Texas might not like Hamer's expense report with this gun buying spree, but those guns certainly proved their effectiveness when Hamer's posse ambushed Bonnie and Clyde and turned them and their car into a bullet-riddled mess.

Hamer also just barely made his purchases before the passage of The National Firearms Act Of 1934 that regulates fully automatic weapons, suppressors, short-barreled rifles and shotguns, and destructive devices such as bombs or grenades. The NFA was subsequently modified in 1968 by the Gun Control Act and in 1986 by the Firearm Owners Protection Act. The NFA imposes a tax of $200 for people who want to legally purchase the prohibited items. That $200 might not sound like much, but adjusted for inflation, it's approximately $3,500. Good thing this tax was not pinned to inflation!

  The Highwaymen 2019 final shootout scene HD 1080p https://youtu.be/iJWOLjdKdGk
This scene was filmed at the exact same place in Louisiana that this actual event occurred. The film makers had to spread dirt over the now-paved road and plant more trees to make it more like it was in 1934.
