Sci-fi future 1911. I think it looks pretty neat, but with a MSRP of $1,147 and it being a brand new company, I don't see myself getting one any time soon.

Huh. I'd think that with the all but imminent passing of the HPA, they'd be cranking into overdrive to be in the best position to meet the HUGE surge in demand that is likely about to take place.
>> No. 102748 ID: 6ca38e
A lot of my optimism admittedly comes from my desire to see it passed. But, objectively, as far as firearm legislation goes, the performance of the HPA in the past year has been stellar, picking up more cosponsors, faster, than pretty much any pro-gun bill in recent history.

Add in to the fact that the ATF has said outright that they won't fight against the HPA and indeed the recent white paper that was "leaked" indicates that there are strong feelings from inside the ATF about taking them off the NFA on their own. Of course, the white paper isn't policy, and obviously those feelings aren't universal. But it's good news all the same.

On the financial side, I'm not sure how much money is actually generated by the tax stamps or where exactly it goes, but in total I can't imagine it being a significant amount as far as the US Government is concerned. Millions to be sure, but against a budget measured in the hundreds of trillions (on which we don't seem to give a shit about being in the red every year as it is).

Plus...Trump Jr is all about the quiet pew pews and is close to some industry people. Trump himself also proclaimed himself to be adamantly pro 2A during the elections and it's an opportunity to prove that such proclamations were more than just lip service.

I think, all considered, the conditions simply all line up really well for the bill getting passed. Maybe I'm wrong in the way I've read things, but I'm hopeful and mostly confident that I'm right.
>> No. 102749 ID: b70387
It doesn't hurt them to be cautious in this situation. If/when the HPA passes, they can ramp up production to meet demand, and any advantage that some other company might have by already having a large inventory of suppressors would be a temporary thing. Ramping up production now could put them well into debt, which would be especially hard to pay off if the HPA doesn't pass, or even passes a year or two after they might expect. If it doesn't pass, they now have a bunch of possibly specialized equipment that they need to sell, possibly at a significant loss. If it does pass, but they overestimate the new demand for suppressors, the same applies, to a somewhat lesser extent.

We've seen similar decisions made by ammunition manufacturers during the panic buying episodes. They don't add more equipment to bring up capacity, because the panic-buying doesn't reflect a long-term trend. They need to be able to feel out any long-term trend before they do anything, or they risk screwing themselves over.

Oh hey I was posting in this thread.

Mainly the carry reciprocity bills that have been pretty much non-starters is what I was thinking of. 2, 3 times during Obama's term it came up and died it committee?

The HPA picked up 7 cosponsors last week, and twice that the week before. To compare, the CCW Reciprocity bill in 2013 averaged between 1 and 2 a week for most of its span.

Granted, picking up cosponsors is not a perfect indicator on how a bill will perform in committee and at votes, but it's kinda all we have to really go on until voting happens.

Seriously. Like move to NH if you want to stay in the cold or to south western VA. Both are far more gun friendly on their bad days than NYS on its best.

If you insist on staying I would suggest getting a C&R, gunbrokering it up, and just avoid the gun shops as much as possible.

Is anyone taking any bets on whether that "ACOG" is the real deal from Trijicon, or a $10 airsoft toy optic that he bought on eBay?

Also, the sight axis of that scope has to be, what, 5"? 6?" above the rifle's bore axis. You're gonna need a taller cheekrest.

Slender auto-nugget thread.

My feelings for this rifle grow fonder with time. It's such a light rifle, the recoil is practically nothing, even the stock angle helps keep it flat. For a Russian rifle, my example has a very nice trigger. The magazine release requires no effort to actuate, having a long tab that can be accessed with gloves. The magazine well is shaped generously, and the tab for the rock-in magazine is placed in a way to reduce chances of missing the recess and mag-locking; I don't even think it's possible.

It isn't perfect, but it is by far my favorite slav rifle of that particular era.

But the SKT40 officially existed and didn't look like your take on it.
Since there's an SVDS, SVTS might be better? :)

I really want one of the new savage msr 15 recons. The specs look amazing for the price 223 wylde, melonite oating, 1in8 twist that will shoot cheap ammo well, blackhawk blaze Nile stage, freefloat monolithic handguard, flip up sights included, and buds has them in stock for 750. I know the bottom of the gun market is about to fall out but I want to sell some of my stuff and a gun to buy one of these.
Anyone else have thoughts on these?
>> No. 102669 ID: c64f28
if a full auto version were an available option, would you purchase it? it could be an option pretty soon, are you going to regret buying now if in a few months you can get a $20,000 M16 for less than the cost of a positive reset trigger for your 15?
>> No. 102671 ID: bd9939
Like most savage products, they are junky and clunky. Carry them, have yet to sell one.

I would personally look into an Aero Precision that has a bolt and carrier made of proper materials with better QC testing in that price range.


Think there's a $30 off with free shipping coupon for a couple days on that one.

I only cracked open one Savage but it lacked any HP or MP markings.

I don't, there are a few pro-gun democrats in the Senate. I see real reform on weapons laws as more possible than repealing Obama or any of the tax and labor stuff that Paul Ryan is pushing. Democrats will line up for filibusters on a lot of topics, but on guns they might not have enough people.

7.62x39. I've seen identical J shaped mags for x39 ARs from the vietnam era, I think newer x39 mags have less of a kink. I think the capacity is 30, but I wouldn't be surprised if it was 40 or 45.

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?

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.

  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.

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.
