Why isnt gas delayed blowback more common? And delayed blowback in general?
Gas delayed blowback seems like a very simple way of building an action that can handle more powerful cartridges. Is it that it's ammo sensitive? Or is it comparable to gas operation in that respect?
Also less commom firearm action thread.
How is it complex? Port(s) in the barrel let gasses into a chamber, the pressure then stops a piston from moving into the chamber until the pressure has dropped. It doesnt seem more complex than for example short recoil or gas operation, and can be made pretty compact like in the P7 or very simple like in many Volkssturm weapons
I don't have much room to talk, but I would be willing to bet they would be more likely to be ammo and bullet weight/velocity sensitive. And I'm under the strong impression they build heat faster
What does /k/ think of Haley Strategic FlatPack? I'm thinking about getting one are they worth it?
its grey man as fuck and the expandable feature makes it gr8 super compact with adecuate capicity if expanded
specially for edc and direct acion my oppinion is that you cant beat it
It's like a normal backpack, but OPERATOROPERATOROPERATORPEROTEROFOR.
Should I buy it and what should I do with it?
If a revolver was the only sidearm you had, what length barrel would you choose?
I'm debating between 4inch or 6inch for a. 357 of some sort, but I'm not sure. Have any of you carried one for an extended amount of time?
Pls help ;~;
I'm looking at some of EoTech's holographic optics and I have also been reading a lot of conflicting arguments in that the optics will not hold zero in "extreme" weather conditions. Is this a problem Eotech has since fixed? If so anyone does anyone recommend them? Thanks
>conflicting arguments in that the optics will not hold zero in "extreme" weather conditions
Given that they knew about this problem and are facing litigation from the DOD and are buying their sights back from people who bought them, I doubt there will be any fixing of the sights
Pick one up second hand for cheap because they aren't "operator" any more.
Get one of these instead...etched reticle so will work in daytime without batteries and won't look like a starburst if you have astigmatism
Tell me what i should do with it?
Put charge in socket.
Shave all body air.
Go to Clinton rally facading cancer.
Get close to hug hilldog.
what's the best cleveland legal gun for self defense poiposes?
Friend posted this on facebook, can you tell me what the fuck he did to that poor gun?
I'm planning on buying a glock 23 for my first gun.
I've fired rifles and shotguns before but I wanted a handgun first and I can get this from a family member (easy transfer) and cheap.
What are /k/'s thoughts on this gun.
I'm inclined to agree. Glock 19 is the standard for pistols.
Let me put this in perspective, beretta used to hold the military contract for having the pistol that was standard use for most of our military, they worked on 3 different versions of a new pistol, spent millions developing a new version that would try to work for today's needs for soldiers and servicemen, and STILL the US govt agencies are adopting Glock as the new sidearm choice.
Get a G19, yeah you'll be cookie cutter, but...

Due to recent events our Ambulance company has been given county grant money to purchase body armor for all personnel.
They bought these hideous bullet proof vests that don't accept plates (other than those small "heart saver" plates that fit in the middle of your chest, definitely not sapi plates.)
Our chief has authorized anyone who owns their own body armor can bring it to work if they are more comfortable with it.
Please help me design something that isn't hideous and helps me look like the high speed medical operator I really am inside.
This is the shit they bought.
The only rule for our private plate carriers is that they must be white, navy blue, or black.
Who would /k/ rather? Inb4 sons of guns

Hey guys, looking to do my first semi-permanent finish on a new scope. Everything I've done up to this point has been with regular spray paint. I'm not intending on purchasing a spray gun, compressor, and everything else because I don't have the money or room for it. That brings me to the new Duracoat in a can. Does anyone have any experience with this stuff? Is it worth the time commitment? Is the finished product good enough?
ITT: Talk about any DIY firearms finishes. Upsides and downsides to them, etc.
This is the equivalent of wearing surplus USGI desert boots in the Appalachians.
Cringeworthy as fuck.
Have you given your gun a name? Has anyone here engraved a name into a gun?
Pic somewhat unrelated.
I bought one last friday.
What upgrades and goodies should I get for it?
I live in an open carry state and have my ccw.
Thinking about picking up this as my first 1911. Heresy?
Combat Elite is a nice ride. Used to be only available in 2-tone, don't know about the present situation. You get a pass if you wanted a combat elite and that is the only configuration. Have fun.
