File 15583119039.jpg - (3.70MB , 5777x2810 , German WW2 Walther Gewehr 43 aka K-43 w scope 1.jpg )
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.

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




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.

And the experimental T-44 machine gun developed from the German FG 42 and MG 42 machine guns.
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.

>Hudson’s said it had 86 pistols in for warranty at the time the company ceased operation.
>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".

  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!

Anyone here ever work with (or against) dogs trained to detect firearms? I learned about how to beat the marijuana dogs years ago pretty successfully because I found out that those dogs are trained with caryophyllene oxide instead of real weed, but I can't guess what they might be training the firearms dogs on. Slide-glide?

I don’t know where you live.
The dog handlers I know all use the real deal.
When a criminal case is over, the dope is destroyed once it is no longer needed.
Dog handlers will take some of that to be destroyed dope and use it for training their dogs,

I know one dog trained for firearms and explosives The conservation officers have it. Poachers often toss their guns in an attempt to avoid arrest

And a local agency has a dog trained to sniff electronics. They use it on the CP search warrants. Think of all the images you can put on a 1TB micro SD card. And all the places you could hide that card.

I've finally decided that I'm going to pull the trigger and build an AR-15 (of sorts; SCR Lower). I've set aside money for the lower, just waiting on Brownells or Budsgunshop to have them instock again. In the mean time I'm going to build up the upper, 100% from scratch (well from parts because I'm not a machinist).

Why not just buy an upper? I actually want to really learn something out of this.

Why an SCR lower? I broke my hand long before joining the Marine Corps. Being young and dumb and not wating to miss work I would duck tape my hand into a ball for work (pulling rocks out of the blueberry barrens) and then tape my fingers and hand out on make shift splints after work. Suffice to say it never healed right and now shooting a true pistol grip actually kind of hurts. Straightish stocks work much better for me.

Has anyone here assembled their own upper?
Any good guides to read?
Manufactures to avoid? (obviously avoid poverty pony stuff)
Manufactures you like?

Over all I'm going for an upper that looks somewhat milspec, sans the forward assist (SCR bolt can't utilize one) and carry handle. Almost mini-14ish in overall asthetics.

Pic semi-related. I'm thinking of a wood buttstock because #woodissexyasfuck

I assumed it would be ok. I will still head to the range and double check.

> So now I have 3 uppers and 2 lowers. Other than cost savings. is there any reason to have a lower for each upper?

The only need for additional lowers is to have different configs or to have more functional guns at one time. 'Case you need to arm yourself, your cat, and your dog all at the same time... or something.

Unless the cat and dog don't get along, then I'd recommend against it.
>> No. 108375 ID: 51b0a9
Mechanical zero is based on the sights in relation to the bore.
Since in the AR-15, both are rigidly mounted in the same component (unlike say, a FAL) a swap would not change any mechanical zero (or boresight).

However you would still need to do a final sight-in to compensate for changes in hold due to stock (or sight plane in reference to eye and bore) or distance from eye to sight line.

Maybe the concept would be applicable in the recoil mechanism concept of the KRISS Vector? Might add bulk but not much weight and control recoil well?
