    Yes he got it second hand. I'm pretty sure it is not a long eye relief scope. I own an almost identical one (the one shown in the picture) and that's not an LER. Most likely a lens is indeed missing on the ocular side of the scope. I guess that's not fixable :-/

      >92FS, still same external appearance, upgraded safety internals to prevent the slide from flying off in cases of catastrophic failure.
      >M9, same as above with the addition of a picatinny accessory rail on the bottom front of the pistol.

    >A revolver seems more fun I think.
    Revolvers are a LOT more complicated to maintain. You have to clean a BP revolver very thoroughly and they gum up fast. There's an extremely real risk of chainfires if you do not prepare your cylinders properly, which can destroy your gun or injure yourself and others. And of course you need to deal with the usual issues with cylinder gap blast and timing that all revolvers have.
    If all you want is click-fshoom, a musket or SXS shotgun is probably a better choice as a first BP gun.

    >Also, what are the "must have" items to get alongside it?
    * A powder measure. This is not the same thing as a powder horn. If you plan on firing the gun more than once, you REALLY do not want to have more than one charge's worth of powder anywhere near the chamber. I know two different people who're missing three fingers between them because they poured powder straight from a full horn onto a hidden ember
    * An extraction screw for pulling charges. It's not just for unloading, it's also for clearing misfires
    * A nipple wrench and a couple spare nipples
    * If your revolver doesn't have a rammer, a ball setter is really useful
    * Wadding, powder, and caps. You can make your own primers. The last couple /bpg/ threads have info on it as well as buying or improvising the tools and chemicals for "real" primers
    * Some kind of wax/grease for lubing balls and sealing your chambers. Once you load the cylinder you need to seal off the front end of each chamber to prevent stray sparks from touching off the other chambers. I use a simple mix of beeswax and lanolin
    * Cleaning supplies. Hot water will do most of it, but pipe cleaners are great for clearing the nipples. Always clean your gun right after you shoot. BP fouling sucks up water from the air and turns into acid that eats your gun. Oil it after.
    * Lead, a crucible, and a ball mold if you plan to shoot regularly. Popping a couple cylinders once every six months isn't really worth it though

    Stupid question: I've recently gotten into guns and only have a bolt-action rifle so far because I thought it would be easier to get into than a semi-auto.
    Now while cleaning the gun I noticed that I can't seem to be able to reach the part where the bolt sits behind the chamber because it's just a flat surface behind the barrel. My fingers are not slender enough to be able to reach it with a tissue and q-tips are too short to anything meaningful. How do you guys go about cleaning that area?

      The FS and M9 are functionally the same gun. M9 is just the military designation for it. Beretta sells them marked both ways commercially. The M9 sku is only available configured like the government ones whereas the 92FS can have variations like Inox and a compact "centurion" model.

      The difference between the F and the FS/M9 is during acceptance testing the military used some out of spec overpowered 9mm and it caused some slides to crack. So Beretta installed a larger hammer pin on the M9 to prevent the slide from flying off if that were to ever happen. Slide cracking was only ever seen in these trials and never in actual use so it wasn't really needed.

        I really like CZs, I have shot one before and really liked it (no idea what model, just remember it being a .40). I just want something in 9mm and the places I went had these 2 which I shot and found myself comfortable with both.

        Do you already have a comfy concealed carry option? If yes get 1911, if no get glock. Ignore the idiot saying to get a cz

        Im planning on taking the CC course ASAP as soon as I get this. My other pistol is a Taurus 605 that I love but dont think it's ideal for CC or qualifying. I still love the thing though.

        >600$ in 9mm
        Give the Steyr M9A2 MF a shot

        Had to google, but that is a fine looking gun. Will definitely keep Steyr in mind for the future.

        G43X for conceal carry.

        I mean you can certainly do it. I doubt it has a measurable increase in terminal effect. It probably has a measurable negative impact on external ballistic performance

        If you want to carry something in warm weather/ light clothing get the 43x. If you want a nightstand gun get the 1911. What's your other pistol?

        glock unless you get the rock island for a good price or you just absolutely want to have a 1911. I had a $300 9mm RIA and it functioned fine, but it's fit and finish was unremarkable. Which is expected from the price point.

        Thank you very much, I was reading this thread on my phone at the store and settled on the 43x. There was a very close competitor though, they had a sig p365 that was from a wholesale lot but 'NIB' for about the same price. It was tough, but I liked the 43x slightly more and went with it. Thanks again for the suggestions, cheers!

          CZs are pretty much all in 9mm these days. I haven't seen. 40 or 45 in a while.

          Bereli sells them occasionally for 400. Extremely good deal. One of my favorite pistols, and there are holster options in case you put a light on it.

        I spend a lot of time in the Philippines and I am amused by the price difference between different RIA pistols. The ww2 style 1911 costs peanuts at 300+ while the Baby Rock and the double stack ported short barrel 1911 that holds 10 rounds costs as much as a Glock. I would rather go with the Glock in that case.

      Yes and no.
      Yes, in that you can get commercial ammo that works in a Garand. No in that if you pick a random box off the shelf, it’ll probably cause a bent op rod. But where the actual dividing line is, I don’t know off the top of my head.

      Modern loaded 30-06 is hotter than WW2 ball the Garand was meant for. You can get around this by swapping out the gas plug or converting to an adjustable one. Turning the gas down will let you safely and reliably shoot modern ammo. Years ago before the cuckening, InRange had a good video on that topic and tested different gas settings.

          Yeah the action is strong enough to handle it no problem. Its just with the default gas setting the op rod velocity is high and it whacks the receiver so you introduce added wear to the gun if you don't change it.

      Personally I think as long as its under 175 grain or so most Garands will be fine. But I use the Schuster plug and usually 165g pvri sp ammo, and it has turned the Garand into a much softer shooting gun. Worth it just for that tbh.

    Is there such a difference between JHP and HP that you'd want one over the other? Trying to find a brand for me to slowly build up now that I have my pistol and I see HP go for cheaper than JHP.

    • 1 month ago
      Anonymous

      Most HP's are JHP, they just often leave off the J in the description. Unjacketed hollow points are uncommon at best. You can tell just by looking at the pics of the ammo: is the nose of the bullet just bare lead? Or is it covered with something else, typically copper?

    • 1 month ago
      Anonymous

      If you want a bunch of cheap JHP for doing JHP things (as anon says you can't tell anything about performance from whatever terms the manufacturer uses) your best bet is earmark a few hundred in your account and keep an eye on sgammo, you'll see cases of contract overrun/rejected LE ammo pop up every so often at bargain prices. For example HSTs missing some primer sealant, which you should not give a single shit about.
      What you need to bear in mind is that not all JHPs perform the same. You're probably going to see S&B, Magtech, etc. as the cheapest options by far, and they are not very good. Fine for blowing up water bottles and still better than FMJ though.

      It's a movie scene meant to add dramatic tension. IRL if you did that you'd increase the likelihood of the bullet breaking apart and fragmenting while simultaneously reducing how far it would penetrate. I'm not sure which of several movies that is from, but if it's the one with the bear it would actually be counterproductive. The general rule with shooting animals is you want the highly expanding or fragmenting bullets for small game and as the game gets bigger you want something that doesn't expand. People shoot groundhogs with bullets like Vmax that practically explode the moment they hit something. Meanwhile dangerous game is shot with non-expanding bullets called "solids" because the goal is to ensure they can penetrate deep enough to hit vitals.

      It's called a dum dum... when a soft point is no longer being used to look good in court or hunt there are a variety of ways to increase the likelihood of jacket/core separation and deformation. Which could potentially cause a more lethal wound. Sort of a hard thing to oversimplify because they are not all the same.

      >Can I bring a .22 rifle to a pistol range or will they throw a fit?
      The range should have posted rules. If it's not in the rules you can find, stop being a cringy sperg and call them to find out. It usually works best to show up for at least one session, not act like a dickhead or a moron, and then ask if it's okay to bring along your .22 next time you come in. Some ranges have insurance, construction concerns, or licensing restrictions that mean they can't let anything that's not a handgun with ammo under a certain FPS onto the range. They might have other restrictions too. My main indoor range is near a military base, so they don't allow you to bring in handloads or your own ammo in >any< issue calibers to prevent people putting greentips through the back wall.

        According to the Feds, a pistol needs to be
        * Rifled (AKA the no shotgun pistols clause)
        * Designed to be fired one-handed. Various features, including foregrips and stocks -- unless those stocks are from a historic design grandfathered in -- are assumed to mean the weapon is a short-barreled rifle instead.
        * Manufactured off of a receiver that was made for a gun called a pistol. Even if it's mechanically identical to a rifle receiver, if the manufacturers *say* it's for a pistol it totally is. If you later use that receiver to make a gun defined as a rifle, its pistol virginity is taken and it must now forever be a prostitute of a rifle.
        Yes, this is exactly as moronic as you think it is.
        * Must meet certain size requirements
        * Must be designed for "sporting purposes" if the barrel is over .50 caliber. Fortunately the ATF considers "for the lulz" to be a sporting purpose most of the time, you just have to get them to sign off on it.
        * Can't be disguised as another object (the "no pen guns" clause)
        * A short, confusing tangle of rules meant to keep Saturday Night Specials off the market that are largely inapplicable due to inflation and modern manufacturing methods.

        "Rifle" is just based on size, rifling, and two-handedness, it's where most of the stuff that's not regulated or a shotgun winds up.

        Thank you both. That cleared up a lot of questions I had.

        >If you later use that receiver to make a gun defined as a rifle, its pistol virginity is taken and it must now forever be a prostitute of a rifle
        No. Pistols can swap back and forth at will as long as they do not cross through SBR territory.

        >SBR territory
        This confused me a lot. I've heard all my life that shortening a barrel of a gun is very illegal. So why is it that guns with short barrels can be sold? Is it because the other parts of the gun make it long enough not to matter that the barrel is short?

          its cause lawmakers are moronic. originally they wanted to ban anything under a certain length including pistols.
          the thought being we dont want them cutting rifles/shotguns short to be concealable like pistols.

            Only if you take it under 16" from the breech face to the muzzle or the end of a permanently-attached muzzle device. Recrowning a damaged barrel is a fairly common procedure and shaves a chunk off the length, it's why you see so many 16.25" and 16.5" barrels out there.
            Even then going under the limit is legal in most states as long as you file some paperwork and pay a couple hundred bucks, it just adds a whole frickload of extra annoyance if you ever try to sell the gun or take it across state lines.

            >Even then going under the limit is legal in most states as long as you file some paperwork and pay a couple hundred bucks
            I believe I have heard about this. You pay two hundred for a gun manufacturer license, do some paperwork, and then you can legally make a gun that would otherwise be illegal. I have also heard of using a trust in the same way so that the trust owns the weapon and parts, and you just take care of them.

              There are different rules and forms for "Please ship me antiques without a background check", "I want to make one gun that would otherwise be illegal", "I want to make and intend to sell several guns etc.", "I intend to make *and sell* several guns that are not otherwise restricted", and "I want to repair guns for money, which will involve having other people's potentially-restricted guns in my custody". Check the ATF website for more specifics, they have very comprehensive FAQs and the full text of the relevant laws and rules.

    Just how powerful is a .600 nitro express, fired from a revolver at very close range? I mean, compared to most rifle cartridges.
    I'm working on a comic, and despite the quasi-cyberpunk elements, I want to keep the gun stuff somewhat accurate to reality. What if you loaded 4 regular rounds, and one hot round in the fifth chamber, how much extra power could you get out of the fifth shot, assuming it destroys the gun? Does destroying the gun make the projectile lose power, given that the energy it disperses?

    Beyond that, is there a handgun/revolver cartridge more powerful than the .600?

      >Just how powerful is a .600 nitro express
      Out of a rifle it's insanely powerful. Back when it was invented even professional elephant hunters considered it to be overpowered. Think about that. Professional dangerous game hunters used to consider it overpowered. Out of a pistol with a much shorter barrel? That's different. Give me a moment and I'll model it in quickload.

      >Beyond that, is there a handgun/revolver cartridge more powerful than the .600?
      Yeah, .700 Nitro Express. .50 BMG, picrel, 20mm...none of them are "revolver cartridges" by design but there's no reason a revolver couldn't be built to use them, especially in the context of cyberpunk fiction.

        With a 10" barrel I'm getting about 1500 fps using a 900 grain bullet. That would assume a a solid barrel with no cylinder gap so in reality it would be a bit weaker than that, but we're still talking a 2oz chunk of metal going at supersonic speeds, so more powerful than a 12ga slug.

      just get on Ammoseek or see what's cheap at your local stores. I've never encountered truly bad shotshells, I've shot a frickload of the cheap stuff like Federal Top Gun and Rio and sure, it doesn't pattern as nice as the expensive loads do but it's reliable, and for just having fun, shooting clays, whatever, it's plenty good for that.

          birdshot is the same price as 9mm, a hair more maybe, but once you start looking at loadings that aren't birdshot the price goes up like 3x on ammoseek, and i haven't seen any larger pellet loads in person or i would have bought them. if you're talking local stores then literally everything is going to be $1.50 to $2 a round premium tungsten birdshot or slugs. every time i've bought ammo i've looked at their shotgun selection to maybe tack on a box of something cool and it's all birdshot

    Had an idea for clearing mines with little effort.

    Tell me why I'm moronic.

    1) You have a dog or guy with a metal detector pinpoint wherever a mine roughly is.
    2) You put a little pyramid on top of it that weights next to nothing, but holds a bullet that aims downwards with a little fuse sticking out of the top.
    3) The bullet ideally hits the mine directly but in the very least shakes the soil enough to trigger the mine anyways.
    Maybe buckshot is best.

    The mine blows, at the cost of a bullet, a bit of glue and a bit of wood or paper, and you need practically zero skill or training.

        Granted, because C4 is optimized to be very stable, but I would assume that a mine that gets activated by stepping on it would be triggered by a bullet hitting it, or even the ground next to it.

        Also you would know if you hit it if some sort of explosion were to come out of it.

          what I'm saying is that most military explosives are designed so that they will not detonate if they are dropped, thrown, or shot, they require specific shock caused by primers, which might explode I'd give you that but how are you going to hit it if the primer is so much smaller than the whole, or electrically detonated?

          Example, the US has accidentally almost nuked itself several times with nukes falling off the back of bombers. Nukes work by using conventional explosives to compress a reactive core. In most if not all of these cases the conventional explosives in the bombs survived falling out of planes without detonating, what makes you think that shooting it is going to set it off?

        Just want to jump in and say DO NOT buy a 9mm variant of the LCP or the EC9 or any of the ultralight small Rugers. They're tiny and weigh fricking nothing, which sounds good for conceal carry, but every time you fire a shot, the muzzle ends up pointing straight up and you have to find the target again. If you use this for self defense, you essentially only have one shot.
        They're great for conceal carry, because they're super fricking light, but for god's sake, don't get one in anything above .380

      If you are dead set on having the cool space gun aesthetic then its not a bad purchase. An AR half its price will run circles around it in every regard except reliability, overall length, and balance. But if you're ok with the weird trigger and 2-3 moa accuracy then do it.
      You can get one for sub $1500 if you wait for a good deal on a used one. Get the waffle mag A3 or A3M1, nato stock is missing the bolt release and half of the trigger connector. Dont wait for the M2 because it will be expensive unobtanium for quite some time, you can always add a $150 aftermarket rail later to fet the same thing.

    for a long time soldiers used slings and bows, which hurled relatively heavy projectiles pretty slowly. Even early handgonnes used large stone/iron/lead balls moving very subsonic. Early matchlocks and later flintlocks had better muzzle velocities, but still used .50 or .75 caliber balls pretty regularly.
    Now we have modern rifles, with the tendency over the last 150 years mainly being a movement from full-sized rifle cartridges (7.62x54r, .303, 30-06) to smaller intermediate cartridges (7.62x39, 5.56/.223) with higher muzzle velocities. And there are laser weapons in use as well, likely to become more popular as batteries improve enough for them to be man-portable. Seems like the fastest, lightest possible 'projectile'
    Why this tendency towards smaller projectiles, moving faster? Just the obvious benefits of propellant being lighter than rest mass, and a better trajectory?

      There's tons of examples like what you describe. To add another, in the mid 19th century dangerous game hunting was done with huge calibers, like 8ga and 4ga, often with explosive bullets. The moment smokeless powder hit the scene those went out the window and things like .45 Nitro Express became the norm.

      The higher velocity smaller caliber cartridges have several advantages: recoil is lower, the ammo is smaller and lighter, trajectory is flatter, and hydrostatic shock becomes a thing.

        The frickhuge rifles were more for your second man than the hunter himself. The reasoning being that if you bollocks up your shot and now you've got a very angry elephant to deal with, it's time to stop fricking around and a bruised shoulder is the least of your worries.

          According to Mr. McCollum, yes. But they were used as outright hunting rifles not just if shit went sideways. W. W. Greener wrote the 8ga is the standard big game rifle for India and Africa at the time. In the black powder days the "frickhuge emergency rifle" was the 4 bore and the common dangeorus game hunting gun was a 10 or 8. Once smokeless hit the scene the .450 Nitro Express (and its metric equivalents) became the normal dangerous game round, while the "oh shit" were the larger cartridges in the series like the .577 and .600 NE.

            You've got to remember that's only very slightly larger than a land pattern musket, and you're talking Greener Sr. there. You've skipped right over (BP) Express.

              In terms of bore, yes. Not in terms of the typical charge. The highest standard service charge for a Brown Bess that I know of was 6 drams. Now that is quite a lot, but an 8ga dangerous game rifle is more like 10 drams, and the black powder of the late 19th century was a lot more potent than that of the days of Napoleon.

              >and you're talking Greener Sr. there.
              No, W W Greener is the son. William Greener was the father.

              I didn't skip them, those were not dangerous game cartridges, though people confuse them with the later Nitro Express cartridges because of their name. Black Powder express cartridges were for game like deer, they were the English equivalent of things like .45-70, .45-90, .50-90 Sharps, etc. They are not part of the evolution of dangerous game cartridges, but they are a useful example here because they were replaced by ~.30 cal smokeless cartridges.

                There's plenty of accounts of people using .577 Express on all African and Indian game. Both professional hunters with a great deal of success and more amateur types fricking up and blaming the gun, I suspect soft lead may have been responsible for some of that.

                Take your pick based on what's in the parts kit and what you can get cheap?
                Relevant G3 parts (pick nine of these, because there's always a chance you missed the tenth. Foreign magazines take up >three< slots, not one.
                Frames, receivers, receiver castings, forgings, or stampings (if you're fixing a demill, this is free)
                Barrels/Barrel extensions
                Trunnions (huge pain in the ass)
                Muzzle attachments (easy and cheap)
                Bolts
                Bolt carriers

                Magazine bodies
                Followers
                Floorplates

                Not having to deal with a gas system saves you several slots off the bat. So basically if you fold your own receiver to do the semi-auto conversion you're already down to 11 parts even with foreign magazines.
                Grip is almost always the cheapest option. A perfunctory search turned up lots of results for relatively cheap flash hiders, bolt heads, and wienering handles: I would want no part of swapping out that trunnion, though.

                Sniders are one of my favorite rifles to shoot. But let's not pretend it's anywhere near the same class as a dangerous game cartridge. A .577 Snider is ballistically similar to a pretty hot 20ga slug or a mild 12ga slug. It's about 1 ounce going 1300 fps. It's about 1600 ft-lb. Meanwhile something like an 8-bore, .450 Nitro, etc, is going to be pushing 5k or more.

    stupid suppressor question incoming. I want to invest in plan b, but realized a lot of the lower profile mounts take up a lot of the blast chamber before the first baffle. I was searching around and couldnt find a clear answer; if my muzzle device is 1.48" long and depth to the first baffle is 1.5", does taking up all that space negatively impact the sound mit/flash/etc of the suppressor and over long term usage does it lead to faster baffle erosion?

    • 1 month ago

      Assuming it's brake or flash hider it shouldn't make much difference. If it's solid for some moronic reason your muzzle is going to be effectively half a mill off your baffle, and that's not going to be good.

      Celebrities get fanmail all the time although a rifle stock is a bit unusual. He might do it, but understand that it won't be him actually opening the package. They usually have people who do that and a package as opposed to a letter is going to be treated with a lot of suspicion.

      If you have a spare stock that you would be willing to risk losing then it's worth a shot.

      If you are really desperate you can try the airsoft one as long as it's not super expensive. If it fits and does it's job then it's not a bad idea.

      Just finally bought a 1911. Found a really good deal on a para gi expert for 400. Looks great except for the plastic grips and trigger. I didnt even know anyone made polymer triggers. STI used to make an aluminum replacement but since para went under, frickin no more. Pls send help im coping and sneeding and i havent even picked the damn thing up yet.

      It could just be the same as a regular 1911 trigger. Is it a regular slim single stack frame?

      I really want an AUG. Why shouldn't I, besides the pricetag?

      The accuracy is mediocre at best and the trigger is awful (although it can be improved). New production are all US made with sub-par barrels as well.

      I own one and I'm going to dump it.
      It can be made into a good rifle, but it's a money pit.

      New to shotguns, why is ammo so expensive? What brands are cheap but good quality? In 12 guage. Also, I have a Winchester model 12 but have been thinking about selling it for a semi auto. What should I look for?

      It's not that expensive for what it is. Birdshot and target loads are relatively cheap. Buckshot and slugs are going to cost more but there are off-brands that are significantly cheaper than say Federal or Winchester. It's important with your mod 12 to never fire steel-base shells (must be brass) and none over 2 3/4" long. Some European shells are slightly too long as well.

      I wouldn't necessarily replace a mod 12 with a semi auto, although the latter would be more modern the 12 has a lot of cool factor.

    How effective or not would a 12 or maybe 10 gauge grenade round be? Something to where ypu can mount it like pic rel for say breaching doors with slugs and fragging rooms with 2 or 3 rapid fire mini grenades. I realize it would be small but you can still pack an ounce or so of comp B and some frag wire into a package that narrow.

      There's the frag 12, and a handful of 20mm grenade launchers (10 gauge is something like 19.6mm), but they're generally considered to not have enough explosive charge to really do anything useful. For CQB they'd probably add more danger to you than to your enemies compared to 12 gauge slugs, and much more danger to any hostages or other noncombatants. Seems like a terrible idea all around.

    So for this type of rear sight you can do a 50m/200m zero by setting the sight to 200m and then zeroing at a target 50m away. But for a 25m/300m zero you have to set the sight to Z and zero at 25m and then change it to the 300m notch. Why do you have to switch back and forth for the 25/300 but not the 50/200?

          If it's doing it with new factory ammo then either it needs a good claening or a new recoil spring.
          Normally you get the drag marks from teh action opening too fast, normal with overpressured ammo. Can also happen though if the recoil spring is worn or if the firing pin is sticking a bit.

          Aesthetically, it's shaped like a revolver, but with a bolt and magazine where the cylinder should be. Plus it has a wood stock, and pistol carbines with wood furniture are definitely Western.

            I know its period appropriate and it fits the wood and metal theme or whatever but i agree with the other anon. It looks out of place and idk ive never held one but it doesnt look like it lends itself to fancy shooting.

    I wonder if you guys could help me identify this oiler I found in a bin at a second hand store. I tried to check against the more obvious ones but gave up eventually. Based on the size I assume it is for a pistol or revolver, and based on the style I assume military. There is a whiff that could be something like cosmoline or other grease, but it's more or less clean. Any suggestions are welcome. Matchbox in pic for size comparison.

    Hello, I've got this old ruger service six that has had rounds stuck and corroded in the cylinder for 30 plus years. I got the rounds out with some lube but now I have to shove rounds in there pretty hard to get them to fit. Is the cylinder just fricked now and I need a new one? Or can I fix this problem? Can't find much online about this particular problem. Thanks.

      Take it apart and throw it in a cup of acetone to dissolve the gunk, then evaporust if that orange blur is rust, then chuck a mop with some metal polish and run it in and out of the cylinders for a minute. Slop on a shitload of oil, ATF, whatever you have handy and then wipe it off with a rag.

      it just needs to be cleaned
      real cleaning not running a boresnake through it twice or brushing for a minute and thinking yea its done.

      Get either a .357 *Chamber* brush, or a .375 Cal. rifle cleaning brush. A normal .357 brush is the right size for the barrel but is too small to effectively clean the chamber. You want bronze, plastic does not clean effectively and steel can scratch the chamber. Bronze cleans well but is softer than the steel the gun is made from so it won't harm anything. Chuck the brush in a cordless drill, soak it with gun cleaning solvent, and run it on low speed in and out of each chamber.

    Would the Japanese Type 3 Chi-Nu medium tank have been a serious threat to the Sherman had they actually faced each other in combat?

    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Type_3_Chi-Nu_medium_tank

    • 1 month ago
      Anonymous

      Going off the info on wikipedia
      >The Type 3 had a caliber of 75 mm (3.0 in)...it gave an armor penetration of 90 mm (3.5 in) at 100 m (110 yd) and 65 mm (2.6 in) at 1,000 m (1,100 yd)

      >The turret armor of the 75 mm and 105 mm armed M4 ranged from 25.4 mm (1.00 in) to 76.2 mm (3.00 in) thick
      >Later models of the M4A1, M4A2 and M4A3 Sherman tanks were equipped with the T80 turret...This turret's armor was 63.5 mm (2.50 in) thick on the sides and rear...The front of the T23 turret...was protected by an unsloped 88.9 mm (3.50 in) thick cast gun mantlet
      >The Sherman's glacis plate was originally 50.8 mm (2.00 in) thick and angled at 56 degrees from the vertical, providing an effective thickness of 90.8 mm (3.57 in)
      >Later Shermans had an upgraded glacis plate that was uniformly 63.5 mm (2.50 in) thick and sloped at 47 degrees from the vertical, providing an effective thickness of 93.1 mm (3.67 in) over the entire plate
      >The upper and lower hull sides were 38 mm (1.5 in) thick
      So a close range shot might have been able to knock out anything but a jumbo from the front and pop turrets depending on where the shot landed. Side hits would definitely go through even at range
      All that said, the Chi-Nu had effectively 2 inches of armor at it's thickest and 1 inch on the turret. So if it didn't knock out an M4 with the first hit, it likely wouldn't survive long enough to take a second

      Yes, 8x57mm is 8mm Mauser. 7.92mm is an alternate name. JS is the standard loafing, J is an alternate one that should work but I don't see it very often. 8x57mm JRS is a rimmed variant that will not work.

    anybody know what the exact diameters for the barrel and the bullet were for flintlocks?

    • 1 month ago
      Anonymous

      Some countries standardized on certain patterns for a while. Other than that, no. Bad tolerances in manufacturing and a couple centuries of wear mean it's gonna be hard to tell just by looking at it even if it's a standard-pattern gun.
      As far as bullets go? Hell no. Most people who weren't in the military cast their own. Issued military ball ammo was usually a fairly sloppy fit to let you reload quickly and fire the gun several more times before the gun was so filthy you couldn't shoot it anymore. Rifles and hunting guns usually had a much tighter-fitting ball or bullet. So depending on who had the gun and what they were using it for, the ammo could be significant fractions of an inch larger or smaller. And of course manufacturing defects were still a thing.

    • 1 month ago

      Put another way, "flintlock" is just a way of setting off the gunpowder. It's as meaningful as "percussion" or "matchlock" or "hand-cannon" if you're trying to figure out a gun's bore diameter.

      ...also your image's title says very clearly that it's a Wallis-manufactured .67-caliber.

    • 1 month ago

      >exact diameters for the barrel and the bullet were for flintlocks
      There weren't any. Standardization as we know it today didn't exist back in the days of flintlocks. Militaries tried to standardize but it's not like precision manufacturing methods existed back then and like the other anon explained it's actually desirable to have a sloppy fit between a musket ball and the barrel because it means soldiers can fire faster. You could take a bunch of Brown Besses and measure the bores and they will range from about .73 to .80 or thereabouts. Sloppy fits like that were common with early cartridge guns too. I own a .577 Snider whose groove diameter is actually 0.607--quite a bit oversize.

      In practice Flintlocks exist in every size from tiny little pocket pistols up through massive things like elephant guns, Jingals/wall-pieces, actual cannons...
