I wish guns didn't cost so damn much as a hobby.
My city is being gentrified so jobs are getting shittyer and rent is going up. And since gentrification means your comunity gets replaced with well off liberals, all these new voters are making voting to make all kinds of new fees and taxes on anything gun related.

Post guns you wish you could afford.

Well luckily most single use and multi-use rocket launchers have "dumb" proof direction on the launcher or on the rocket.
Although I have see too many people try and use them backwards.The only thing i wish the put on things in bold letters is that it is recoiless so they don't anticipate the shot and put the rocket in the ground.

How would you feed something like this in the long run? I see it comes with reloading dies, but won't the cases wear out after a while?
>> No. 108387 ID: 6fe1bd
20x138b cases are relatively easy to lathe-turn, so are the bullets. Handloading isn't too bad either, 50 bmg primer pockets for CCI#35 work but we found they needed a bit of help with a small teabag of FFFF black powder under the stout load of vit 20n29. IIRC it was ~650 grains, but I may be off on those numbers, it was a while ago. Top it off with a cotton ball and a bullet.

14.5x114 is a bit more complex because of what country I live in, brass is harder to find. I have a source for steel cases and I treasure the brass cases dearly, I haven't seen any since I nabbed the ones I got years ago. You can't really turn 14.5 cases easily like you can 20mm, too much bottleneck. Theoretically, you could turn and form them after, but I don't have much experience with that kind of forging and I'd be worried trying this sort of thing out on my PTRD.

The Solothurn S-18/1000 is fed from 10-round detachable box magazines. The carriage has a provision to store spare magazines right next to the wheels. This gun is consigned with 13 magazines and a number of spare parts and tools. https://www.thefirearmblog.com/blog/2018/10/30/7-historical-anti-tank-weapons-seen-in-morphy-auctions-catalog/

Finnish Lahti L-39 20mm Anti-Tank Rifle
Another well-known WW2 anti-tank weapon is the Finnish Lahti L-39. This rifle is a gas-operated semi-auto magazine fed weapon. It is chambered in 20x138mmB. The magazine is installed from the top of the rifle and the spent cases are ejected downwards. Like many other weapons of this type, it was widely used in WW2, however, its effectiveness against the majority of WW2 tanks left to desire a lot. That’s why such weapons were more effective when used in anti-materiel roles.

This particular gun comes with the distinctive Lahti ski-style bipod attachment and a number of accessories including 8 magazines, 4 magazine boxes, cleaning kit, spare parts, tools, three rounds of ammunition etc.

Estimated price: $5,000 – $10,000

Sadly, the only big bore gun I have is a reproduction flintlock grenade launcher (aka hand mortar) with a 2.5-inch (63.5mm) bore and a .75 powder chamber. The necked-down powder chamber will accommodate patched Brown Bess balls if you want to use this for some sort of pistol. Normally, she was designed to fire tennis balls or solid rubber dog toy balls. Silly, but the ammo's cheap.

Best Fun-Gun Ever. The Can Cannon – Mounts on AR-15 - by DAVE HIGGINBOTHAM on MAY 10, 2015
The Can Cannon: http://www.xproducts.com/ar-15-soda-can-launcher-accessories-launcher
Though it look intimidating, it is the best fun-gun ever.
Awesome has arrived. That’s the slogan emblazoned on the side of the inconspicuous tube in which the Can Cannon ships. And X Products–specialists in all things awesome–have nailed this one. I’ve never had more fun on the range than I did with the Can Cannon. Never. Not once.

What is the Can Cannon? It is exactly what it sounds like. This is a highly modified AR upper designed to shoot 12oz cans. Coke cans. Beer cans. Whatever. And full cans, not empties. And, coincidentally, it also shoot tennis balls and other items similar in diameter. Simply pop off your upper, transfer over the bolt carrier group and charging handle, load a mag full of blanks and get to a range with a lot of open spaces. Wide open spaces.

And brace yourself. The Can Cannon kicks–but odds are you won’t notice. You’ll be laughing too hard.

File 155452028150.jpg - (63.86KB , 900x675 , US AR-15 Can Cannon by X Products loads Coke cans .jpg )
The concept is simple enough. Replace your AR-15 upper with the Can Cannon. It uses the same bolt and everything. Instead of loading live rounds into the magazine, fill it with blanks. Any .223 or 5.56 blank should work. They won’t cycle the action, but they’ll launch the hell out of a can of Coca-Cola.

The tube itself is a beefy piece of steel that threads over a device designed to use the pressure from a blank to push a can out the end of the tube. X Products calls it a gas ported barrel.

The launching tube screws directly onto the upper, and sits flush with the upper’s rail section. It is stepped inside, so that a can sits in the optimal position (bottom end in first).

Load in a can, cycle the bolt, aim in a VERY safe direction, and pull the trigger. Don’t get this order mixed up and load it, then stick your hand in front of the barrel. That’s not safe.

The tube is blocked on this end. This is the small detail that would make shooting a live round dangerous/deadly.

Potential dangers
Let’s get this out of the way now. Before I wax poetic about how much fun I have had with this thing, I want to talk about the very real dangers it poses. This device shoots projectiles. It is built on a rifle platform, uses blanks, and propels objects at potentially deadly speeds.

File 155452041457.jpg - (100.83KB , 900x675 , US AR-15 Can Cannon by X Products loads Coke cans .jpg )
When I first heard about the Can Cannon, I’d envisioned a video opening that went something like this: I would set up the camera on a long range and holler to someone down range–“Throw me a beer!” The shooter would then lob a can of beer my way and I’d catch it, crack it open, etc.

Um. This is why you should always test out guns and such in a very safe place. When we first pulled the trigger on a can of Coke Zero, it launched the can so fast and so far that we barely saw it go. There’s no way I am going to try to catch a can shot out of this thing. It is a stupid idea.

That is only one of the stupid things one might do with it. There’s little to prevent you from loading a live round into this. And if you pulled the trigger on a live round in the Can Cannon, it would fire. If I had two, I’d test what happens. But I’m not willing to destroy this one for something I know is a stupid idea. The round would conceivably blow through the end of the gas tube, then whatever object you’d placed in the Cannon itself. It could also generate enough pressure to rupture the whole thing, though I doubt it. Regardless, don’t do it.

And don’t shoot at anyone with it. We played around with some tennis balls, but only from a really long distance. And I wouldn’t recommend that. Those fuzzy balls are moving very fast.

How fast is fast? We did chronograph this thing, with cans and balls.

Let’s begin with a point of reference: a baseball, which weighs 5.25oz, traveling at 95mph has 99 foot pounds of force.

Baseball 5.25oz, 139.33fps or 95mph, 99fpf
A can of Coke Zero 13.08oz, 134.4ofps or 91mph, 226.4fpf
Tennis ball 2.1oz, 175.70fps or 120mph, 63.1fpf
In order to get 226.4 foot pounds of force from a baseball, you have to throw it at 143.67 MPH. The tennis ball has less mass–only 2.1oz–and only 63.1 foot pounds of force–well below major league pitching danger, but still smoking fast.

How far will it shoot?
Surprisingly far. We could get cans well over 100 yards. Tennis balls are more of a gamble. They lose their fuzz as the blanks burn them out of the barrel. Each shot trims the fuzz, and the balls seem to slow a bit more as the gas seal formed by the tight fit gets less secure.

We shot the balls and cans on a completely flat plane and were surprised to find that the cans were averaging about 130 yards. Tennis balls were over 100 yards, but didn’t have the momentum of the cans, so they came up shorter.

I should mention, too, that only good cans work. As we try to keep our costs low, I’d bought a case of Dr. Thunder. The Can Cannon didn’t like Dr. Thunder. The pressure popped the bottom of the cans. They didn’t go very far at all. The did erupt in a shower of gas-fueled generic sugary splendor, one that coats everything with a 25 foot radius–cameras, by standers, even the shooter if the wind is right.

But duct-tape fixes everything. A simple patch on the butt of a Dr. Thunder can gave it the strength to clear the barrel. With the quick fix, the cans flew just like the others. No can survived the impact of the launch.

Always liked the schuetzen stocks on single-shot target rifles. These flamboyant stocks aren't just decorative, they can fit your cheek and arm extraordinarily well! Martini, Winchester Highwall, Marlin, Sharps or any good falling block action works well with these schuetzen stocks. But they are old, rare and expensive. Some gunsmiths do make modern schuetzen target rifles, but not for cheap.
Here is a very nice Schuetzen rifle in 8.15x46R which was made by Johann Peterlongo of the well-known firm Tiroler Waffenfabrik in Innsbruck, Austria. The date of manufacture is assumed to be November 1908 due to the "11.08" stamped on the bottom of the barrel. The 29.5" octogonal barrel has a bright and shiny bore, an 8.75" long dovetail, and retains about 95% of the original bluing. The action is of the Martini type with double set triggers and retains about 20% of the original casehardening colors. The front sight has the original ramped base, but the sight blade has been replaced with a Lyman 17A target sight. The rear peep sight seems to be complete and functional. Both sights retain about 95% of their original finish. The buttplate finish is about 98%, but it most likely has been reblued. The buttstock and forend appear to be made of some type of European walnut. This rifle was made for a right-handed shooter, and as such the stock has been substantially sculpted with a cheekpiece on the left side and a thumbrest on the right. The wood is finished with varnish or shellac (not polyurethane) and polished to a high gloss. There are a number of handling marks in the wood, but nothing substantial. I would give the wood about 98%. Weight is 11.2 lbs. https://www.gunsamerica.com/917144324/Schuetzen-Rifle-8-15x46R.htm

The levers on these schuetzen rifles actually make good pistol grips. Hope the legislatures don't ban these late 19th century target rifles because of that.

22 K – Hornet husqvarna Model 33 action
Here is my favorite Gopher Gettin’ Machine. It is commonly known as a “separator” in the gopher fields! The action is from a Husqvarna model 33, Fagelstudere’, means “Bird Rifle” The originals were built for hunting a Swedish grouse type bird called a capercaillie. I wanted to copy an early European style hunting rifle for this project. The barrel is actually stainless and blued with a special process. Engraving is by Larry Merical, good friend of mine. I actually have a pair of these rifles, both actions purchased from Larry. The other is a 38-55, my deer rifle, also engraved by him. The scope is a Leatherwood, copy of the old Malcoms, 4 power. I shoot 45 grain Hornady bullets, groups are just under one inch at 100 yds. This a very fun rifle for stalk and shoot in the gopher fields. https://www.customrifles.us/22-k-hornet-husqvarna-model-33-action/

And here's some kind of king-hell Remington Rolling Block...
Rifle build – 38-55 black powder cartridge Heavy bench gun
Follow the build of this 38-55 BPCR, black powder cartridge rifle, from start to finish. The action was an original Remington rolling block number 1 military action which I heavily modified. I copied a rifle action design found in Roy Marcott’s Remington sporting rifle book. This action had Arabic markings I couldn’t live with. I milled down the sides of the receiver to clean it up and polish to bring it to the size of a sporting model 1 1/2. I also added a spur on the left side to accommodate the breech seater tool used to breech seat bullets, as was the custom in the hey day of turn of the century target rifles. The trigger guard is English style from muzzleloader days and the trigger is a “speed lock” design. I welded up the half cock notch and stoned the full cock notch and hammer sear to give me a 1 1/2 pound trigger. This is a primitive trigger set up, copied from original rifles. Because there is no fly added to the hammer, the half cock notch is essentially removed. This makes it possible to set the single, simple trigger very light. Since this style rifle is only used for target shooting, the half cock safety notch is not necessary. The rifle is set up for iron sights from MVA, and a Lyman Super Target Spot 30 power scope. On my home range I have shot numerous 1 inch 5 shot groups at 200 yards. However I never seem to be able to shoot perfect scores in a match, I always manage to send one into the hinterlands when it really counts.

The barrel on this behometh came from the home shop of John Kreiger, by his own hand. He had machinery capable of handling the 2 1/2″ blank which was not available in the factory. I was aiming for a 50 pound finished rifle, however it is fairly light at only 38 pounds. When set up on the bench I shoot with a 9 pound muzzle clamp attached, bringing total weight to 47 pounds. The only weight limit in schuetzen bench rest requires the competitor must be able to place the rifle on the bench without assistance. After receiving the blank I milled it octagon to 2.150″ at the muzzle. The barrel would not fit in, on, or under my shop lathe. I needed the assistance of my good friend John King to chamber and thread for me. Then I commenced to turn this piece of heavy machinery into a rifle. https://www.customrifles.us/custom-build-38-55-black-powder-cartridge-heavy-bench-rifle/

This Remington rolling-block rifle is chambered in .22 caliber Black Powder, an early production S/N 71X made in 1890. It sports a 24 1/2 in. tapered octagon barrel. It is a model 1873 rolling block #4. The walnut stocks are old original with nicks, scratches, and wear. The receiver and barrel patinated, the bore is very good condition without pits. It wears a semi-buckhorn rear sight and the blade front mount is present without the blade. An excellent choice to introduce a young (or not so young) shooter to cowboy style plinking. https://www.lofty.com/products/remington-rolling-block-22-caliber-rifle-1-ql5z5

And Example two. Save, that I've worked on this one. And know it well.

This is a M4A3E2, Sherman Jumbo, a "Heavy" version of the M4A3 Medium. It has more effective armor than a PzKfwVI, and a far more useful gun. (And a far, far more useful and reliable engine.)

I know this tank. It took a solid hit from a PaK 40, and shrugged it off. The shot took a large divot from it's drive housing, which was later filled with weld. Meanwhile, the tank and it's justifiably pissed off crew decided that "Running the sons of bitches over" was the best course of action.

Mind you, this thing just soaked up a shot that normally would have turned a "normal" M4A3 into a firey wreck. A PaK 40 is no slouch.

But a "Jumbo " is no average tank.
It took the massive hit, MG'd the crew and crushed the gun.

It was sold recently from the Littlefield collecton. It spent some time in Arizona in the late 90's.

Impressive! The PaK 40 75mm is one of the best anti-tank guns of WW2.
As reports came in on the development of new Soviet tanks, Germany looked to improve their late-1930s era 50 mm anti-tank gun. The result was the 75 mm PaK 40 (PanzerAbwehrKanone), not only bigger but also significantly heavier. The new gun was built in only small numbers until the months after the invasion of Russia and actions in North Africa, when the need for such a weapon increased dramatically among German army units.

The powerful PaK 40 was an effective weapon against most types of Allied tanks, including the Soviet T-34 and American Sherman. The weapon, along with the famous 88 mm, was considered one of the best anti-tank guns of the war. https://flyingheritage.org/Explore/The-Collection/Germany/75-mm-PaK-40-Anti-Tank-Gun.aspx

File 155710391872.jpg - (1.07MB , 2741x977 , German WW2 75mm Pak 40 anti-tank gun 2.jpg )
Because light and strong metal alloys were needed elsewhere in German war production, the PaK 40 was produced primarily from steel. Gun crews had difficulty repositioning the weighty weapon quickly and long moves always required a vehicle. Some of the guns, mired and snow and mud, were abandoned by retreating German units on the Eastern Front, captured, and used by the Soviets. Other PaK 40-type guns were mounted to highly mobile tracked chassis as German Marder tank destroyers.

In a pinch, the PaK 40 could be operated by one soldier. Normal gun crews consisted of five or more men working to service the cannon behind its angled gun shield and fold-down skirt. More than 20,000 PaK 40s were produced and German military units used the PaK 40 through the last days of World War II.

  Pak-40 German 75mm AT Gun Firing https://youtu.be/T7fhBm1ouSU
While we normally stick to small arms here, this beast of a gun was just way too impressive for me to not pay attention to. I was at a cannon and machine gun shoot just recently where some folks brought out what is (I believe) the only functional Pak-40 in the United States. And shot it.

The Pak-40 was the backbone of German antitank guns during WWII, and fired a 75mm AP shell out to an effective range of about a mile in a direct-fire role, with enough energy to defeat pretty much any Allied tank except the late-war Russian heavies. It was fairly light weight given its effectiveness, and makes one hell of a concussion when fired.
