>no ATF thread.
Afternoon komrades, I'm on leave with pay from work. How bout an ATF thread?
Bonus round. Let's get some literature in here as well, what are you reading?
What does /k/ think of the 7x57mm round? Is it worth buying a Mauser in 7mm or should I buy one in 8mm? I live in NYC and I can only buy antique firearms.
My options in terms of Mausers are the 1891 Argentine, 1893 Spanish, and various other G88 and G98 import variants.
I also like that these guns can be had off of gunbroker for only $200-300.
There is no more surplus 7x57. So if cost is a concern I'd advise against it, unless you reload.
That aside, it's the most popular of the 7mm cartridges and probably the best Mauser cartridge around. It's a popular sporting load and relatively easy to find even in most big box gun stores. I'd pick one over a 8mm Mauser any day.
Don't need a permit if it's an antique, like I said.
Thank you. Cost isn't really an issue as I wouldn't be able to shoot it very often. I'd probably buy a 20 rnd box of PPU and it'd last a year or more.
Its like poetry :3
Whats the best place to buy K98s that are in shooting condition?
What are they worth anymore? I've seen a few on racks before around $300 but looking at listings they seem to be alot higher
I WANT ONE SO BAD IT HURTS
I would literally whore myself out for one.
10/22 thread. Let's see your 10/22s. I need ideas.
I'm ordering a under-folder here and it's going to be my back packing / everything gun.
Unless you plan on using a red dot or scope do not get the straight version. I have one and the length of pull is good for me at 6'1" but your sight picture is uncomfortable to achieve without an optic. Get the slanted version unless you want an optic.
ITT: we are firearm designers
So I have the opportunity to purchase a Marlin Model 1895 chambered in .45-70 for $600.
Should I buy it? So far it seems like a good price compared to cabelas and bass pro but this with set me back a month on purchasing an Original GI Springfield 1903.
I'm thinking about joining the YPG. Maybe not as a combatant, but I know they need Linux sysadmins.
How bad of an idea would this be?
Which do you prefer, /k/? Colt 1851 or Remington 1858?
Personally, I'm torn.
+Easily removable cylinder; can be removed, loaded, and reinserted in the gun. No need to awkwardly hold/prop up gun while loading.
+"Normal" (Modern) sights
-Not as cool looking as 1851
-Have heard top strap can lead to build up of powder fouling
-Slightly more expensive
+"Open top" is pretty damn cool (and virtually non-existent on modern revolvers)

Has no one ever thought of making armor plates with the same materials bulletproof glass is made?
could this gun work in irl?
Yes. Nothing about it is out of the ordinary.
The action it's based on, while obscure, is very real. Too bad we don't have a 100% certain understanding of how it works.
Is ZQI ammo, 7.62x51 specifically, worth buying?
AIM has 240 rounds with a can for $110.
Also, battle rifle / .308 general
It works fine for me. It clanks plates at 400 yards as well as my $18/box softpoints.
It's one of those mas 49/56 rifles converted to 308.
What are the basic principles and methods of reconnaissance / scouting in both civilian and military settings?
Does it just boil down to just staying quiet, be unseen and return with as much intel as possible?
What else goes into it?
How do you incorporate recon into your innawoods scenarios?
