does /k/ ever feel sad thinking about how close melee combat was destroyed with the introduction of modern firearms?
Fuck no. With the modern workload I don't have time to be fucking around with an duels or defending myself in a lengthy sword battle with some nog. I'd rather quickdraw my sidearm and be done with it so I can make dinner and get 2 hours of free time before I have to hit the hay.
My friend wanted to get into shooting, so I brought him to a range (first hit is free)
All was going splendidly until he chambered a 30-30 in my sks when I wasnt looking, and jammed the round so far forward I cant pull it straight out.
The round was high brass, so I dont expect damage to the barrel, but what would be the best, idiot-proof way, of getting the round out beyond shoving a rod in the barrel and potentially damaging the barrel/chamber?
I'm looking to get a do-all center fire bolt action rifle but am having trouble deciding on a caliber.
I have a Savage Model 25 in .223 but want something with more firepower. Even with a good .223 load, it has a 1:12 twist rate which causes heavier bullets to key hole and shoot inaccurately.
I also have a Mosin Nagant but want something chambered in a modern cartridge with better accuracy.
A panic-proof and decently common caliber is preferred.

I want a semi auto rifle that is dmr levels accurate but also capable of taking down north American game.
I have a psl, fn fal, and m1 garand.
I am wondering if it is more financially sound to modify one if my rifles for the role or simply buy a new rifle that can already perform in the role for me.
I would agree except the FAL is already heavy and, with the weight of a scope, think about if that's what you want in a hunting rifle.
SCAR-17 or an AR-10 build can get the weight down, maybe even a Keltec RFB or a DesertTech MDR, but it's not going to be easy to get a battle rifle down to hunting weight.
How viable would Reinhardt-esque power armor be in real life combat? i imagine with a hard light shield and strong armor plates soaking up bullets would be pretty decent until they pull out larger caliber guns or anti-tank.
plus with a big melee weapon (lots of reach and lots of force) while being somewhat impervious to small arms would make you a walking slaughterhouse and great at demoralization (of course he is too heavy and relies on a sci-fi shield and a rocket powered hammer but please tell me the actually usability of a melee-centric power armored soldier)
CS rep told me the buffer/spring/extension are made by DPMS and High Standard (Both of which are pretty low end manufacturers IMO)
Does it really matter?
I really only worried about it when I was making an AR pistol. Some tunes don't fit the sig brace well. I went with one from Midwestern (I think that's the brand) because they had it measured out exactly for the brace.
I also used a heavier buffer since I was using a shorter barrel.
Extension is fine, sometimes the finish can be janky but it's a fucking tube, if it screws in then call it good.
Spring isn't really that big, it's a wear item that'll get swapped out eventually anyway.
If it's a 6 position carbine extension then ditch the stock buffer and get an H-Buffer just because that's what the military uses and it's a cheap way to fix some function and premature wear issues shooting a lot of milsurp 5.56.
Ignore if you're building a rifle.
It was/still is called the Spandau, get over it, and yes, it is worse than the Bren, get over it. There's a reason the Germans lost the war
So how the fuck do I aim with this thing?
At line 1 or 2?
75 years ago today Germany invaded Russia and got BTFO hard.
Even today would a land invasion of Russia be possible?

My first gun.. good, reliable, no hassle and easy to maintain.. i recomend a revolver or a glock
What gun should I get my dog for his third birthday?
Daniel Defense thread!
Alright /k/unts, let's put together a thread of audio that we can recommend for use in psychological warfare. I'll start us off with a few links:
Soon, i will into AKM for innawoods. Should i change the folding stock to a fixed one? I like wood furniture, and it'd be sturdier, but it'd be longer and heavier then too. I also might want to fix bayonet
you can either pay $500 for parts and labor to have a slr style folding stock put on or you can buy some kind of folding stock like a magpul. either way, i wouldnt do it.
folding stock is good for transporting, thats about it.
not as sturdy
cleaning kit place
shoulder thing wot goes up
sturdy as fuck(usually)
