Can someone here explain to me how a non reciprocating charging handle doesn't "flop" when you're firing? Like, if the action fast enough that it doesn't have time or is it actually locked in place somehow to where it'll only move when pulled not when fired?
Also, in a short stroke piston, where does the buffer spring go?
It does, but it's of no consequence because it's not being forced back, it simply jumps back and forth a little if you don't hold it forward.
Also, the only design that has a buffer spring is an AR (at least that I know of)
Short stroke gas piston rifles typically have the spring behind the main portion of the piston, or occasionally surrounding the entire thing.
ars have a latch that locks into a notch on the reciver
The master's legs are friggin jacked even as an older man. Vining thread
So, never used semi wad cutters before, is that just a revolver type thing? Because i keep getting failure to eject every single time with my semi auto.
Im still at the range.
Wouldn't the wadcutter shape be more likely to cause failures to feed? Unless the rim of the fired case is getting caught up on the next round in the magazine or something.
Can you cycle the action by hand smoothly?
If shit were to hit the fan, should you take into consideration the more common types of ammo out there when picking your primary weapon?
Alright k, I got my Eotech money back finally. I sent mine in back during the first week of January. That's almost a four month turn around time for anyone wondering if their check will ever come in.
So now I'm sitting on a $1100 check. What would k buy with this? I have two 5.56 rifles, a shotgun, concealed pistol and a full sized pistol. Any recommendations on nuggets?
So recently got this and a few jap medals was wondering what this is, and what it says if anyone could translate.
I'm a Japanese major.
It says, and I'm paraphrasing here, it's an idiom unique to Japan so I can't really translate it perfectly, "Glorious nippon steel folded over one thousand times, plane wings sharp like katana, filthy gaijin go home."
Hope that answers your question :)
How fucking stupid is this /k/?
Hey, guys. I can't identify this minigun.
Anon, please, help me.
One step closer to joining the free states.
Iowa passed, with overwhelming bipartisan support, the legalization of suppressors.
Happy day, my local dealer is all set up to deal in these deadly assassin devices. First up is assissifying my scar.
Estonian needs your advice.
Pic related is my first SPR built.
I was wondering if it is OK to attach part of the scope mount to the fore rail hand guard
Any thoughts on these? (5.56 or. 308) I'd like a bolt gun with iron sights but am having trouble finding modern rifles that come with them.
Got any good milsurp stores around you OP? There are a lot of offerings you are looking for with actual military irons in 308. Otherwise old Remington 700s can come with iorns and CZ makes new rifles with mannlichner stocks and iorns but they are $$$.
Just picked up pic related. How bad did I fuck up /k/?
Also melee weapons thread.
Depends on what you paid and what you thought you were getting.
They're fun cheap beaters and throwers. The Estwing is a better inexpensive tacticool hawk and the Cold Steels are better inexpensive traditional innawoods hawks.
Commiefornian here,researching new bills that are being introduced and found this. Does this mean receiver blanks and 80 percent receivers are illegal now er what? Has this effectively turned me into a criminal? I'm building a few AKs and ARs,am I fucked for just having them?
Seems like this bill would make 80% receivers be treated like finished receivers. So you'd have to register them, transfer to a FFL, etc.
You didn't REALLY think California was just going to sit idle while 80% 'salt killing baby weapons were flooding into their border, did you?
Are there any of these that arent complete garbage?
Shouldn't the filled with boom part hurt more because it has boom and is bigger?
