I'm glad to announce the resurrection of Stripclub.

If you're looking for weapon's maintenance procedures, detailed pictures of parts and reviews of weapons, this is the right place.

Thanks guys, I appreciate it.

Also, I made a video of a short demonstration of the action. I know LifeSizePotato and GnR357sig made some videos, but they never showed what's happening at the rear of the cylinder.

There aren't a lot of Mateba videos out there, so I figure one more shouldn't hurt.

Additionally, after testing the barrel orientation a bit last time I went shooting, I've concluded that the cylinder stop spring tension wasn't the issue. The issue was that the cylinder gap was too large and didn't produce enough recoil to cycle the action reliably.

However, Loktiting the two backplate screws fixed another problem I probably would have seen later: The lower backplate screw would have gotten in the way of the firing pin. Please see the diagram in the post below.

Hello Folks. I'm starting to plan out building an AK. I do have a bit of practice with welding and machining, which is relevant because I was looking at using an 80% receiver. I ordered a Polish parts kit, and am now looking at a barrel.

How much difference is there between a chrome lined and nitrided barrel?

Here I thought a name like "strip club" would attract attention.

Well we're kicking this strip up a notch, because we're starting with a box.

So what could be inside?

So after talking to you on the other Chan I tried the e-mail.
It was for the other PTRD owner in niagra. Let him know about the possibilty of bullets since he missed the thread.
Probably going to order the dies sometime soon.
Shoot me an e-mail at thefrogge at hotmail.

For Christmas I got a used Century Arms/Norinco JW2000 coach gun, and one of the hammers is already broken. I can't find any info for replacements parts or warranty info. Can anyone here help a brother out?
>> No. 3575 ID: 6372b6
Call around machine shops or welding shops, anyone that could weld it. Should be good enough.

I made a hammer for an ol' .410 once, wasn't really too hard. Hammers like that aren't exactly tricky bits, and its good that you got both pieces if you need to make a new one. I'd go with welding first honestly, if you play your cards right it could cost you just a couple of beers and a box of shells; most shop guys wouldn't mind a couple minutes of welding if they got to blow some water jugs up with a 12 and have a beer after.

My friend fired .308 Win out of my Mosin Nagant. The bolt has been rock solid but now wobbles and rattles when shaken and I can feel more vibrations when I work the bolt. I haven't stripped down the bolt yet nor looked at the rifle's chamber. The .308 case did expand and rupture. What areas should I check to see if they are too damaged for continued use?

Second P11 that I've done a polishing job on, I'm personally not a fan of bling, but it's starting to grow on me. Started at 320 grit due to the poor surface quality, up to 1000. Then it went to the wheel, total hours-6.

That's why I don't blue anymore. If someone comes to my shop for a refinish job it's duracoat or parkerizing.

Fantastic job.

Having polished a few things in the "european stick up ass" method, I can say that it's a fuckton of trouble and work. I did the buttplate, the action, the barrel, the bolt, and the recoil lug. No good pics of those, I'll take some eventually.

Method went as follows:
>Rough file any bumps off. File until divots caused from filing said bumps are evened out with the entire workpiece, all over.
>Fine file until rough file marks are gone, filing any remaining divots, bumps, or dips of any size, blending the whole surface together
>180 sandpaper until file marks are gone (all the file marks)
>240 sandpaper at a 90 degree angle from the 180grit until all the 180 grit marks are gone
>320, perpendicular to 240
>400, perpendicular to 320
>400 again
>600 along the longest length in the workpiece
>600 until all 400 marks are gone
>800 until all 600 marks are gone
At 600 to 800, examine under bright light and magnification to see if ANY marks from previous grits remain. If they do, go back down a grit and start the whole thing all over again, all over the piece. This is important as you don't want a wave/wobble to build up from spot-sanding.

So a while ago I got a Ruger MkIII 22/45 for 330 bucks shipped. All was well; it shot reliably, very accurately, and even got me all sorts of lewd when I ventured into a detail strip. Couldn't have been happier with the purchase.

But then my buddy got an MkIII 22/45 Lite. I didn't look at it twice until I got my hands around it, and the feel of the thing was much nicer; the aluminum barrel sleeve made a massive difference in the balance of the firearm. At this point, my old 22/45 felt like a foam block handle with a solid depleted uranium brick on top; unwieldy, nose heavy, and awkward. It was like dating a decent looking girl and being happy, but then finding out she has a 14/10 face-melting sexy sister, and her personality sparks better chemistry with you than antimony pentafluoride.

Having no money to buy said sexy sister, my impotent, jealous, envious boner pushed me to do something drastic.

Man. My first choice would be to have turned it down on a lathe. But I guess this works too. Looks pretty great actually.

The only thing is
Are you uhh, supposed to be clamping on that surface with those two toe clamps on the side? Wasn't the slot on the bottom of the vise there just for being a clamping surface? (in fact, other examples of this type of design have a wheel cut on the front and back too to make a slot for clamping.)

Pic is Mk1 chan
>> No. 3566 ID: 6372b6
If I turned it down on the lathe, I'd need to leave a big ol' gland where the front sight is and then need to mill the sides/bottom off there anyway. Slab siding was just simpler, much easier, quicker, and removed enough weight for my feel.

The clamps can sit there, the vise surface they're clamping on is harder than the steel making up the clamps. Every surface on that vise was hardened. The reason why they're clamping on there is that nothing really fit where I was doing this at the time; the actual machining side of the operation was done in my sleep. The hard part that caused me endless headaches and actually took hours was finding clamps, finding threaded rods, finding t-nuts, juggling t-nuts that were too small for the table slots, clamps that were too big or too small, threaded rods that were stripped/too short/too long/wrong thread, and dozens of other fucking bullshit ass fuck problems that drove me right up the fucking wall. Dumb shit that baffles and angers me to this day, more than my blood pressure will care to recall.

The only thing that worked right in terms of clamping was that little vise itself, because I made that years ago. The shop had their own vise, but it was not worth its weight in slag. Calling that shop vise a by the name of vise is an insult to vises everywhere.

Picked up a Vortex Venom 3 MOA Micro Red Dot sight today, here are the first impressions:
- Pretty well made, I owned a Vortex S.P.A.R.C. before and it was well made like this one. I had the chance to do a side by side with a RMR at the gun store and it's up to par.

- Doesn't have a dedicated power button but hold the brightness up to turn on the sight and holding the down turn it off.

- Not sure how to explain this but when you press the brightness adjustment button you are only clicking the button and when I push harder the housing of the button doesn't give at all. As a PC tech the best way I can explain is when you plug in the AC adapter for your laptop some brands jack will move ever so slightly and after a while the solder gets weaken and stop make contact and stop charging the laptop less you hold it down a certain way.

- MSRP says $329 but I paid $229 + tax at the local gun store

- The viable space is really wide you only get a little oval ring that block your view

- Because of my poor eyes sights the dot doesn't look like what the picture is showing but it's still a very tight dot according to the picture

Going commission Omegis to build a wing guard mount for it so I can raise it up to 1/3 co-witness and with added protection. Probably going to ask Stoplossed to Cerakote the wing guard mount.

It uses the 4 peg 2 hole mount like RMR

Will report back after range trip (latest would be 27th I think)
