Hello, /k/.

I'm in the process of building myself a cabin innawoods, and setting up a reasonably sustainable living space for myself. Right now, I still have a regular apartment and job, but I intend to eventually go full hermit in my cabin and avoid heading into town if at all possible.

What I need are incredibly durable and easy to strip/troubleshoot firearms. I don't care how pretty they are, and I'm willing to trade 'comfort' for 'indestructible'.

Effectively, I want some guns that I can bring with me in the woods and that will easily last 10-15 years if need be without me heading into town (obviously with proper maintenance).

I'm not really interested in bringing more than 3 or 4 guns with me either, ideally

- a pistol/revolver
- a shotgun
- a hunting rifle
- a semi-auto rifle

I owned two Vz58 rifles and extensively shot my buddy's Cz858, and I'm not sold on them even now. Mostly personal opinion, but they often had some design "features" I didn't agree with.

Honestly I can't wait for the T81, it very well could be the rifle Canucks deserve. If OP isn't willing to get a modern Hunter or an AR while he gets a pistol (ARs being governed by the same regulations as pistols) then he could wait to see how the T81 turns out.

SKS go innawoods is still an option, and not a bad one.

Hey buddy. Best of luck to your project.

Pistol: 1911 or CZ or any other 9x19 / 45ACP full metal gun. Sure Clock is good but plastic is hard to fix.

Scattergun: Rem 870 and buy older model with all metal parts. Mossberg is good but I personally don't trust aluminium.

Rifle: Umm... Err... You hunt what? If it's not bigger than Hog or boar i'd say .308 or 7.62x54R. Mosin is cheap and ammo is cheap. Re-barrel the thing and it last's next 100 years. If your game is like moose or elk i'd say something like 30-06 or 45-70GOVT
>diameter x bullet weight x muzzle velocity = stopping power... Bigger the game more the stoppin powah

Semiraifu: AR15 or AK platform. What ever you prefer.

>The multi-purpose hand grenade design will provide both fragmentation and blast overpressure more effectively and safely than its legacy counterparts. Once fielded, Soldiers will be able to select and use a hand grenade with different effects simply by flipping a switch.

So basically a grenade where you can select either concussion or fragmentation. How do you think they'll achieve this?

The German army introduced the Hafthohlladung anti-tank weapon in 1942. This consisted of a shaped charge warhead connected to a ring of metal holding three powerful horseshoe magnets. Issued to infantry, the user would run up to the tank and place the device on any surface to which the magnets would stick. The user would then pull the safety pin and run for safety. The magnets not only held the mine to the vehicle but also provided the correct spacing between warhead and armor, allowing the penetrator jet to form properly. Concerned that the simple design could be easily copied in the USSR, the German army began looking for ways to defeat such a weapon when used against their own vehicles. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zimmerit

File 147601934187.jpg - (1.03MB , 2592x1944 , Zimmerit_Tiger_II_2_Bovington.jpg )
So the Germans applied a zinc paste called Zimmerit to their tanks that would interfere with magnetic grenades sticking to the steel.

Zimmerit was a paste-like coating used on mid- and late-war German armored fighting vehicles during World War II. It was used to produce a hard layer covering the metal armor of the vehicle, providing enough separation that magnetically attached anti-tank mines would fail to stick to the vehicle, although Germany was the only country to use magnetic anti-tank mines in numbers. Zimmerit was often left off late-war vehicles due to the unfounded concern that it could catch on fire when hit. It was developed by the German company Chemische Werke Zimmer AG.

File 147563488170.jpg - (104.60KB , 1200x762 , pistol US WW2 Colt 1911A1 Singer 499th manufacture.jpg )
This is an extremely rare example of a M1911A1 Automatic pistol that was manufactured by the Singer manufacturing Company of Elizabeth, New, Jersey as part under Educational Order No. W-ORD-396. This was the 499th pistol manufactured in 500-pistol contract (second to the last). The pistol has the distinctive, high polish, Du-Lite, blue finish on the slide, frame and barrel and is fitted with the original checkered, brown plastic, Keyes Fibre stocks. The stocks lack reinforcing rings around the screw holes and lack the internal strengthening ribs and mold numbers found on WWII production Keyes stock. The pistol has the original Singer barrel; the only marking is a block "P" proof mark stamped on the left side of the barrel lug. The pistol has the correct short, wide-spur, hammer and checkered main spring housing. The pistol is complete with three rare Singer magazines. The magazines have a high polish blue or Du-Lite finish, over-size pins in the bases and unmarked floor plates. The left side of the side is roll-stamped with the Singer address: "S. MFG. CO./ELIZABETH, N.J., U.S.A." in two lines. The right side of the frame is roll-stamped: "UNITED STATES PROPERTY/No 800499" in two lines behind the slide stop hole. "M 1911 A1 U.S. ARMY" is roll stamped in a single line in front of the slide stop hole. The top of the slide is stamped with a "P" proof mark between the rear sight and the ejection port. The "P", correctly, faces the rear sight. The left side of the frame is stamped with the "JKC" Ordnance final inspection stamped that was used only on Singer Educational Contract M1911A1 pistols and a "P" proof mark. The pistol is complete with a WWI production M1916 Holster for the M1911/M1911A1 pistol, a russet leather Army magazine pouch marked "BOYT-46" containing two flat-base magazines. The pistol is complete with a hand-written statement from the original owner dated "6/3/63" that states he was issued this pistol in January 1942 while stationed at West Overfield, Massachusetts and retained the pistol on discharge in October, 1945. The letter further states that the owner never used the pistol "in any manner" from his service discharge until the date of sale. http://www.icollector.com/Rare-WWII-Singer-Manufacturing-Company-Model-1911A1-Semi-Automatic-Pistol-with-History_i9387889

Makes sense, I usually check all my cylinders, do a field strip of my revolver and whatnot every time I examine it or even pick it up. and Ive even done some of the stuff you're talking about like moving while keeping a sight picture on something.

as for the part about moving individual muscles and holding one POA, I'll try it, it seems conducive to imprinting muscle memory and correct posture.

>kinda nuts.

Sounds totally normal to me. Make every weapon an extension of yourself, make any weapon an extension of yourself.

but they call ME nuts because I do all that with my pointy-stabby things every morning too. Which is how I can cut piles of firewood with a hatchet without tiring, because the fine motor control makes sure the edge always (or mostly lol) hits right, doesn't dull, and wastes less energy

That said, I still suck with pistols imo... but I grew up shooting rifles first so I end up holding myself to that standard. I can head-shoot a bunny at typical bunny-finding ranges though, so that's good enough for me. Not gonna win any competitions soon but it'll put meat on the table or on the slab, so to speak

And then of course there's the 14.9mm SOP, a 1690-grain VLD bullet at 3,350fps. More kinetic energy at the muzzle than a 20x102mm Vulcan (not counting the explosive payload an autocannon round carries), and supersonic to five and a half fucking kilometers.

My communist government is declaring all AR-15s assault weapons this coming year, so I want to get a pair of lowers soon and build them later when I have some disposable cash. But I know next to nothing about ARs.

Are there any lower manufacturers that are just complete shit and should be avoided, or should I only concern myself about the internals that I'll put in them?

In fact, that movie may be the reason the AR18/AR180 is on the list, along with the SPAS-12. Nearly all the weapons that were used in that movie ended up listed by make/model in the Roberti-Roos Assault Weapons Ban of 1989. Coincidence?
>> No. 99435 ID: 685058
Coincidence? Not at all. There was a hysterical outcry of the police station scene. In The Terminator, where the titular character discovers that his assassination target, Sarah Connor, is in a police station, he tries to bluff his way in, but is refused entry, so he smashes his way in and guns down every cop who interferes with his mission. The Terminator was goal-oriented, you see, but people complained of the tremendous violence in the film against police. Cry me a river, cop-lover. It's a goddamn movie, not an instructional video.
But there was a serious vocal complaint of this scene in 1984 and then bans and heavy regulations were made against assault rifles soon after. This outcry perhaps engendered the scene in Terminator 2 where Arnold has to swear that he will not kill anybody when he goes to spring Sarah Connor out of the nut-house.

In Canada one must take care that "bottle openers" made of metal don't have finger holes or else they are defined as "brass knuckles" under the law. This would define the item as a prohibited weapon even if there's a non-weapon reason to carry it.

Plastic knuckles are OK to own but not to carry concealed, and I'd say the same applies to those plastic "stinger" things because there's no arguable use other than a weapon.

As with every other country a sturdy pen won't get a second look and will work as a weapon in a pinch.

Pic related "wrench" is fine. I've tested it and it does work on a bicycle. It also looks like it could be a bottle opener but it's the wrong size. I've passed security checkpoints with it, though I did get a funny look. I have it on good authority that one of these will seriously fuck up a human being.

As something of an aside, you see this issue in lockpicking, too.

Many, many places have laws on the books that make carrying lock picking tools illegal (often *very* illegal) if you're not licensed or actually on a job.

And most lock-picking tools are very mundane items.

In other words, yes, usage defines the category.

Carrying a screwdriver? Pretty normal. It's a screwdriver.

Using the screwdriver to bypass a lock to gain entry to a building not your own? Felony possession of lock picking tools.

Using a screwdriver to bypass a lock, stab the owner of the dwelling, and rape their dog? Well now you're in possession of a deadly weapon AND lockpicking tools. Same item, two charges. Also, you're a sick furry bastard.

Always been a fan of umbrellas, myself. They're way more multifunctional than they look, because people are so used to only seeing them used for one or two purposes. It's still a stick. Also makes you real popular with women when you're the only guy to have the foresight to have one. Remember to get one bigger than you need...

Bit of a bitch to carry due to size/weight, but there's something to be said of the old D-cell Maglite flashlights (thinking back on it, why the fuck didn't Maglite get involved with "COPS"? It was de facto advertising in the 1990s...). Shit flashlights, but my god you wouldn't want to be hit by one of the fuckers. And even though they were aluminum, they were pretty thick and well made and could take a beating.
>> No. 99400 ID: f87148

Aftermarket LEDs and microcontrollers can greatly improve the utility of otherwise obsolete flashlights such as these. I retrofitted one of those big old GI angle head jobs and was rewarded with a flashlight which, while still heavy as fuck, will provide more than adequate light for like two fucking weeks straight, and which is reasonably water-resistant -- all for, like, thirty rupees. I was pleased enough with the results that I plan on doing the same to one of the smaller versions sometime soon.
