I want to start a funs collection, but the only firearms I'm interested in are ones that have historical significance. Like army surplus and whatnot. What's a good classic rifle or handgun that's relatively cheap with relatively common ammo?
Pic related. Something I'd like to own.
You missed dirt cheap milsurp by about 5 years, friend. Cheapest is still mosin for a couple hundred and ~40CPR ammo but at this point you may as well buy a Mauser for $300 and 50CPR ammo.
CALL YOU DAMN REP'S. WE CAN'T ALLOW HISTORY TO BE DESTROYED UNDER OUR WATCH
(1) REQUIRED TRANSFER.—Not later than 90 days after the date of the enactment of this Act, and subject to paragraphs (3) and (4), the Secretary of the Army shall transfer to Rock Island Arsenal all excess firearms, related spare parts and components, small arms ammunition, and ammunition components currently stored at...

Bump, keep this alive and spread the word. These pistols have been kept stored away for decades waiting to be released to future custodians of history. We can not sit and watch them destroy objects with such a connection to our nation's history
Not anymore if you don't contact your reps ASAP. Congress can fuck around for months arguing over trivial changes to legislation, but somehow pass a bill condeming pieces of American History to the melting pot in 2 days. Note that this includes M14's and M1 Carbines as well that are left in storage at army depot facilties
alright /k/ i have a question for you
when the NFA mentions an SBR it means a rifle fired from the shoulder with a barrel shorter than 16 inches AND a length shorter than 26 inches?
If i only meet one of these criteria (for example, an M92 PAP with a folding stock and a 10 inch barrel; being 26 inches or more fully extended but still being fired from the shoulder), is the weapon stilled considered an NFA?
that's what i thought. I just purchased an M92, with a total length of about 20 inches out of the box. Im going to assume that putting a folding stock and a krink muzzle break on the gun would end up making the overall length at least 26 inches if not more, but i wanted to make sure it would still not be considered an NFA weapon, due to it only having a 10 inch barrel.
it depends on what the gun started as
if its pistol and you add a stock then its a sbr
if its a rifle and you cut the barrel its a sbr
if its a nothing which happens to be over 26 over all but not have a stock and a under 16 inch barrel congrats with your "firearm"
I reeeally want a Sig 550, /k/. Bad. Is the 550A1 a good knockoff, or should I stay away?
IIRC the US made 550A1 had some issues and wasn't really worth it. I think MAC did a video on it a couple years back. I for one can however speak for the Sig 556 classic, and it is good to go, though I understand what you want is some true Swiss awesomeness.
do the plastic ar magazines have any real advantage over the normal military mags or is it just marketing bs?
GI mags are going to get all fucked up in the middle, if you have them in your duffle/ruck plastic ones won't. Still have Gen 1 Pmags I got back in '07, have not maintained them for shit, but they still feed good.
What do SWAT officers do day to day, when they aren't being deployed for raids and shit? Do they train all shift? Or do they just sit around waiting in case something happens?
Depends on the department. Major departments have full time SWAT teams that will either be training or serving high risk warrants on their work days. Most departments have part time SWAT teams that will train a few days a month together, serve high risk warrants or respond to high risk situations when they come up, and perform normal law enforcement functions based on whatever their day job is when they aren't doing SWAT stuff.
I want to buy myself a top tier AR as my first gun, which one is it?
If you want to build top tier, you build it part by part. Right out of the box, I would choose the BCM since handguards are optional/ you don't need to deal with quad rails and shitty furniture for more dollar like DD.
Both are really good quality however. Ask yourself what you're going to use the gun for. You don't need a $2,000 ar15 (not saying DD or BCM) is if your application is home defense or just plinking at the range.
If you want ""top tier"", get an SR15 and be done with it.
Truth be told, I want the gun to be the most reliable as possible. I simply want it to be all purpose, home defense, IPSC, shooting shit at the range, SHTF scenario since i live in a exposed territory.
I put a complete BCM upper onto an Anderson lower and used DD's complete lower parts kit and furniture.
Looks great shoots great and still smells great.
I don't know what the fuck oil BCM uses on their parts before shipping them but I want candles scented with it.
I've recently watched this video on carry and noticed the bit where he talks about gym shorts with velcro waistlines instead of elastic and I use an Incog holster.
Does anyone who carries know of different brands like these that also have velcro? Don't really dig the design on these and want something more subtle if there's anything out there.
Check out "deep concealment" holsters like SmartCarry or Thunderwear. They're like fanny pack holsters that go under your pants/shorts. So you can wear them with light gym shorts because the shorts aren't supporting them
I'm a big guy, and as such, I have large hands. Big, meaty hands. Because of this, I need a larger grip than is available on most concealed model pistols.
I'm coming to you, /k/, a meager nogunz pilgrim, looking for the best fun to purchase with my hands in mind. I've tried some sigs, some smaller glocks, and they just felt like toys to me. Couldn't get my pinkie around the bottom. I want to be very picky with this firearm as it'll be the first that I will own.
Any suggestions? Anyone else with big, meaty claws? Does weight...

I'm getting my concealed carry as soon as I turn 21 next week.
What gun should I go out and buy to celebrate the occasion. I'm thinking either an HK USP compact or a Beretta 92 compact. I've always liked target practice with a friend's 92, but now I think I want my own. But the HK is also really fucking nice.
What do you guys prefer to carry? Post favorite carry pistol.
My only thing is a Shield but take a look at the PX4 and the P2000 SK.
>Maybe with, like, wood grips or something. A little classic-looking.
P239 maybe? Not well versed in CZ's but they have some nice stuff. Do you think you can conceal a full size? There's a lot of options for that compared to compacts and subcompacts.
If Ukraine had another coup, and moved away from the US/NATO, would Russia learn anything useful from any info/vehicles/manuals Ukraine has acquired until now?
Depends on how neutered the equipment that the west provides is. I think the only things the west supplied them is artillery locating radar, some hummvees, and an mrap variant. The US/NATO is probably only there to help train the Ukies in tactics and shit like that.
TL;DR: The Ruskies probably wouldn't get much, if anything.
How does one acquire a working Sturmgewehr?
What's the best .22LR bolt action rifle on the market today? Will be used for small game hunting and plinking.
Also, disregard the "No .22 on shelves" meme. There is plenty where I live.
Which would you say is better?
Has there been an instance of a modern fighter jet using its gun in combat?
If I recall the Israelis have put an emphasis on gun kills when viable.
