Let's have an heirloom thread /k/.
What weapons have been passed down through your family? Anything that has been passed down farther than grandfather?
I have an old Hungarian air rifle that I found in one of grandpa's closets long after he passed away and my father gave me this Canadian rifle in 30-06.
When my wife and I have a kid I'm hoping they'll appreciate everything too. Of course I don't plan on giving any of my other rifles away either.
This is the pistol that belonged to a drunk that shot my great great great uncle jimmy. After being shot my uncle took the gun and hit the drunk in the face. He then threw the guy in the drunk tank to sober up. He released the guy the next day. He kept the gun as punishment.
Opinions on the Kar 98? I am looking to buy one and am looking for some insight.
There's a reason the design is over 100 years old and still in use
Been using Hoppes for years, bought this crap recently in between pricier bulk purchases, and holy fucking shit
stuff must be 75% rubbing alcohol, I'm pretty sure i've sustained permanent brain damage and minor vision loss in the 30 minutes I was cleaning my pistols the other day. gnarly hangover type feeling all day for 2 days alongside headaches and extremely hard time focusing my eyes.
excellent CLP tho
What's the coolest gun available for purchase that isn't actually all that expensive but seems like it should be?
I thought it's cool that there is this strange pipe that's covered in wood or plastic that has explosions going on inside it and these explosions propel a piece of metal at real fuckin fast speeds, like sound barrier breaking speeds sometimes.
Hey, canadian army res fag checking in. I want to build myself an AR that will shoot as similar to my issue AR as possible. I want to work on my marksman ship with my service rifle, it's steeply declined as I'm in the artillery and range days are few and far between. I want to do this as cheaply as possible. Bonus points for info as to how I could aquire ivi ammo as well.
The Diemaco SA20 is a civilian version of the C7 made by the same company (Colt Canada)
You could not get any closer
If you could give an Allied soldier one weapon from the 21st century, what would it be?
HARD MODE: It can't be an AR-15.
Are there any military roles the get issued SBR's instead of M16 and M4?
I don't know what they're saying but there is a ton of great flying footage going on here.
Is a coach gun viable for home defense?
Viable? Yes. Preferred? No. 12 gauge anything is kick ass for home defense, so I'd still probably prefer that to a handgun, but you'd be much better off with a pump action or semi auto shotgun.
I’ve got a Jianshe Arsenal /26\ SKS in Calgary
The gun wont chamber, if you look at the cartridge photo it will not fit past the bottle neck as the camber has become too small. It’s as if heat has made the chamber shrink.
At first I thought a ripped off casing head was stuck inside, no.
Then, that the bore/chamber/chrome-rifling-liner had shifted internally from the barrel, no, as that ring mark you see is thicker all the way around, not just one portion.
I’ve been trying to find not a stripping schematic, but rather a factory...

This is me. Unequivocally me. No other operator can come close to relating to me like this. There is no way you can convince me this is not me. This operator could not possibly be anymore me. It’s me, and nobody can convince me otherwise. If anyone approached me on the topic of this not possibly being me, then I immediately shut them down with overwhelming evidence that this operator is me. This operator is me, it is indisputable. Why anyone would try to argue that this operator is not me is beyond me. If you held two pictures of me and this operator side by side, you’d see no difference. I can safely look at this operator every day and say “Yup, that’s me”. I can practically see this operatorn every time I look at myself in the mirror. I go outside and people stop me to comment how similar I look and act to this operator. I chuckle softly as I’m assured everyday this operator is me in every way. I can smile each time I get out of bed every morning knowing that I’ve found my identity with this operator and I know my place in this world. It’s really quite funny how similar this operator is to me, it’s almost like we’re identical twins. When I first saw this operator, I had an existential crisis. What if this operator was the real me and I was the fictional being. What if this operator actual became aware of my existence? Did this operator have the ability to become self aware itself?
My guess is that you significantly fatter than the operator, are in much worse shape, and would likely soil yourself several times in a gun fight.
But dream on /k/ommando, dream on.
/k/, it's the 17th century.
You bring your family out deep into the forest, you establish a small house and farm.
After a few weeks a fucking witch starts fucking around with your shit.
She steals one of your babies, she curses your crops, etc etc.
How do you mount a defense ?
All you have is a musket, some powder, and a few knives and axes.
You, as the head of the family have to fight off this God damn witch.
Takes the form of animals
Can transform into a beautiful woman

White ash, salted buckshot, crosses etc. And if that doesn't work, burn down the wilderness around her so no one can have it. That's right, I'm taking my ball and heading to Virginia where I can grow tobacco and fuck slaves
>interesting/unique firearms you own
