          "white discoloration" can also just be gunpowder residue, though. I recall an image from years ago where an anon had a Glock with a muzzle that was nearly pure white. Can't find shit like I remember.

            nah its different than this but i know what you mean, its around the grip and loading gate so sweat/oil wearing on the zinc.

              Ah yeah some of my old airguns have that corrosion. Could just scrub it down with some sandpaper or steel wool to get rid of the corroded areas and give it a thick coat of paint on the zinc parts. IIRC there's a couple of guides for painting a Daisy 880 that would probably be good enough; they're also zinc. Both are probably ZAMAK. It's a lot of work but $7 in Rusoleum high heat black gloss will work.

              Also may be some kind of galvanic corrosion if it's somehow reacting with steel pins or screws holding the loading gate on? Or maybe it is sweat getting caught in the cracks?

      Imo red dots might snag so it's a no for me. Plus I don't like the idea of carrying expensive stuff either, so investing in a good red dot will just add to the expense.

      Depends, are you preparing for a shooting or a shootout?
      Unless you train a lot with your gun and your red dot, you'll be faster putting shots on target at typical SD distances with irons. Red dots give you precision at the price of bulk. If you're carrying in case someone tries to do something violent to you in particular, I say no, if you are carrying to stop a mass shooter, its worth considering. I like my small guns to be small, but I put one on my primary CC gun, which is already hard to carry with no printing.

      IMHO, nay. The added bulk is a concern on a subcompact, so is the increased chance of it snagging on something when drawing it. I don't believe the dot is going to give you a meaningful advantage at typical CCW distances anyway, especially not a big, bright, easy to see carry-type dot. I say spend the red dot money on training/ammo instead.

      No. Bulk aside, a dot on a pistol is great for precision at range and speed on sequential targets, at the cost of being slower to acquire on an initial target. Self defense is almost always about acquiring and engaging a single target at very short range.

      Buy more ammo and shoot more instead.

        I disagree with slower target acquisition on guns (but I'm also not a fan of RDS on subcompacts. Compacts I would run one.) If you properly choose your red dot for ccw, look for something with a larger, outer circle, similar to how eotech has a 68 MOA dot. If you run a Horrosun with MRS (titanium is the only thing I'd trust with my life fwiw), they have an optic with a 32 MOA circle. If your target is at any self defense range and you have see the outer circle on their body, you can pull the trigger no matter the parallax, and your shot will land on target.
        YMMV, but I shaved .4s off my draw-to-shoot time. This was with a CZ-p07 and a 508t. You can still run backup irons on some RDS too.

    I disassembled one of my SKS rifles for cleaning and inexplicably could not re-insert get the trigger group into the rifle. Upon further inspection it appears the disconnector of the trigger group is a few millimeters forward of where it should be and therefor will not fit into the designated hole in the receiver.

    For comparison pic related you can see a normal SKS trigger group that fits into the receiver as it should overtop of the atypical trigger group at the bottom.

    I know this is a bizarre and very unusual problem but I am at a loss. I have several SKS rifles and never experienced a problem like this. Any insight or theories are very appreciated.

      Not really
      20s are really easy to carry (especially in the gun) but put you at a disadvantage against people the AR was meant to fight (ruskies and morons with AKMs and 30 round mags). 40s are a little unwieldy in some circumstances but in others they make a lot of sense. 30 is a really good middle ground for most things.

      Depends how creative you are. I've seen people printing little doodads like magazine loaders, magazine blocks for cucked states, etc. and making/shipping them as orders come in rather than keeping any on hand. It's a very low cost model that isn't lucrative by itself but might scale to pretty decent profitability.
      So it's part what you make and part how you market/make/stock/ship it.

      Should I get a 1911 and embrace my inner boomer, or a slav handgun chambered in 7.62×25mm Tokarev to match the rest of my slav stuff?

      They are similar guns, but owning both the 1911 is a lot nicer. Ammunition is substantially cheaper for 45 as well, with 7.62x25mm being a niche low volume/high cost caliber. A Tok can run 7.63x25 Mauser as well but it isn't any cheaper.

      If you really want a Tokarev the Rguns Chinese T54s are a pretty reasonable deal, but you will have to spend a few extra bucks on a replacement trigger without the safety since that modification makes it absolutely horrible to shoot (necessary for import but easy to swap out).

      For the AR platform is there any practical use for aluminum baseplates on 30 round mags? And why is 30 rounds the “standard” instead of 20 or 40?

      Baseplate isn't under that much stress so you can have a plastic one with an integrated magazine pull if you want. No real reason not to other than slightly longer length.
      30 is a good compromise of length/weight/capacity/reliability. Longer magazines might kink up and have feed jams if made poorly, or at least be inconveniently long/bulky. 20s and 25s are handy, but not enough to be worth the loss of capacity most of the time although I sometimes like 20rd length magazines at the range for feel/balance/looks.

      Also 20rd tends to be standard capacity for battle rifles. 30s exist there but get bulky.

      Is this based on a real gun or is it a made up design?

      From the barrel assembly back it looks like an X-frame S&W.

      What car is that? The front end is like 20 feet long.

      1970s Chevrolet/GM. Not sure what model exactly since they like to share platforms between models/brands.
      Yeah back then huge inefficient land yachts with gigantic motors making no power at all was the norm. One of them ending up as a range obstacle isn't surprising because they held value like old milk.

    • 2 months ago
      Resident Wumbologist

      You can't make a 3d printed or synthetic receiver for an SKS. It's a pressure bearing component. Even mounting a barrel into a stripped receiver is tricky. You can probably buy a stripped barreled receiver, but by the time you scrounge up all the parts for it piecemeal you would have probably spent more money than simply overpaying for a complete rifle.

      Your best bet is to keep looking for a complete rifle and hope you find some boomer or one of their kids looking to sell who only has a bluebook from the 1990s as a reference to price. Happens once in a blue moon.

          Are you talking about the stock or the receiver? Because when you said synthetic lower I figured you were talking about getting a plastic receiver like you can do on an AR-15.

          The stock can be plastic of course. Original wood ones aren't that hard to find though.

            Was talking about the stock, yes. But the main point is just trying to not pay 500 dollars for a fucking SKS. I wanted to get one for 400 during 2020, but had some roadblocks. Was gonna get it from someone else, but then that person flaked on me and now I'm left looking for a chink rifle that doesn't cost more than the shit AR I slapped together.

              It's really very unlikely. SKSes are just not cheap anymore. It's worth noting that even the Chinese ones do have a bit of work put in them, fully chrome lined barrels and many forged steel parts as opposed to most budget ARs. It's kind of hard to compare an SKS like for like to an AR in terms of true value.

              Best bet would probably be one of the really grungy Sino-Soviet ones that came from Albania recently. They were stored in horrendous conditions and the exterior condition tends to be terrible. Their stocks are often severely damaged or broken, but they make for good projects. Because they often haven't been fired much or at all they tend to clean up into good solid shooters.

              If you just want best bang for buck in terms of usability and convenience your existing AR is probably a better rifle.

                Online for sure. If you're paying 80-120cpr for 9mm you are getting ripped off. You can get it online for under 40cpr all day.

                Do you live in California or a state where mail ordering ammunition is restricted? I live in CA and I can buy 9mm in stores for way less than you're paying.

                I have no idea what auto sears or glock switches are. But every time I see a video of glock switches, I see full mag dumps.

                Are auto sears the same as a glock switch? can you burst a glock-switched glock? or is it one press=full mag dump?

                The switch is a decide that replaced the backplate with a selectable auto sear. When installed and switches to auto the gun will fire full auto, but obviously it stops if you let go of the trigger. People are probably doing magdumps because they are showing off, or perhaps with such a high rate of fire it might be tricky to let go before the magazine is empty.

                Is 3 gun fun? Seems like it could be, but I don't have a shotgun. Anyone know of any good beginner friendly courses in western Washington?

                If you don't have a shotgun no reason not to get a basic Maverick 88 or something. It's not the best fastest 3 gun shotgun by any means, but it's cheap and does general shotgun duties well.

                If you're not using a red dot you have a longer sight radius with the longer barrel, makes it easier to hit. Also, if you're shooting 3-gun you probably have a huge mag tube extension on the gun, it's length makes a short barrel pointless.

                Note the Mossberg 500 and Maverick 88 cannot accept tube extensions. Do not buy the 28" field version. If you want capacity get the 20" 7+1 capacity model.

                If you want to mount optics like a red dot or holo sight get the Mossberg 500. The cheaper Maverick 88 doesn't have the receiver drilled and tapped for an optics rail, which the 500 does. At their core they are basically the same gun, but the 88 omits a few features to get the price down.

        should take a pic of the floorplate and any part inside. The BM has a weird floorplate, button (sheetmetal), and spring end. That folded over floorplate made from sheetmetal is very Star BM. Perhaps it's another Star model I'm unfamiliar with. The Model B uses the same mags AFAIK as a gun store sold one of their extra B mags from a gun they had and it fit in my BM.

      It's a P38 magazine, they don't have mag catches since the heel release keeps it held in from the baseplate.

      Is it better to buy ammo local or online? just got a new glock and I've been trying to shoot it once a week but a box of range ammo for 9mm around me is like 40-60 for a box of 50 fmjs.

      Online all day long. I just bought Federal American Eagle 9mm 124gr FMJ brass case the other day. For comparison:
      >You: $0.80cpr
      >Me: $0.35cpr (after shipping and taxes)
      You're paying over twice as much. It's like that in most brick and mortars in my experience these days. I had the same issue with some 00 buck the other day, buying bulk online was literally less than half as much even after tax + shipping. I personally like to try and start simple with places that don't tax to Texas and offer free shipping (usually conditional, e.g. buy $300+ worth of merchandise).
      Aggregators to use to look for ammo:
      >ammoseek
      >bulkcheapammo
      Price shopping can be annoying too since one site could list ammo at $0.30cpr but then you go to checkout, have to enter email first (so they can harangue you later), then address, then they tell you there will be tax and shipping is X so at the end of the day it's $0.40cpr, that's an extra $50 if you buy 1,000 rounds. I personally don't nickel and dime over it if I find something acceptable from a good company but $50 is significant.

      Also consider what you're getting. I could have bought cheaper from S&B, Geco, Magtech or Aguila (Czech, Hungarian, Brazilian and Mexican, respectively) but Federal is made in Minnesota and they make great ammo and are a trusted name.
      Also the type of ammo: 115gr would be a little cheaper than 124gr. Lead nose bullets would be cheaper than FMJ. Steel case would be cheaper than brass and so on.

      Lastly to figure out CPR (Cost Per Round) just remember it's in order: Total Cost ÷ Number of Rounds.
      E.g. if a site is offering 800 rounds at a total cost, shipped, for $287.12 then:
      >287.12 ÷ 800 = 0.3589 CPR

      Happy hunting.

    physics retard here, why do cartridges with a higher muzzle velocity, lower weight bullet, but overall higher muzzle energy have less recoil?

    isn't energy energy? is it related to specific impulse like with rockets how faster exhaust velocity at higher vehicle speeds is more efficient?

      Conservation of momentum.
      Bullet weight matters more in the recoil calculation while velocity matters more in the energy calculation.

    Why have I never seen a pistol-grip lever-action firearm before? I always see gay gun companies shilling their "modern take" on lever-actions but they're just old lever guns with picatinny and mlok slots on them and they're colored black.
    I've asked this question before and people have said "well it's impossible, the action wouldn't work that way" but wouldn't it? I'm not saying pivot the entire action, I'm just saying pivot the handle on the lever and keep the action exactly where it is now. Wouldn't that work?
    Picrelated is my shitty attempt at photoshopping what I picture that'd look like. I genuinely wanna know if and why it wouldn't work

      Yes that would work.
      It's not too far off from the Volcanic pistol, a predecessor to modern leverguns.
      If you're asking why people haven't made a rifle with a stock and a pistol grip? Because the standard stock is more ergonomic. People weren't retards back in the day, modern guns have become less ergonomic since the early 20th century because we've been trading off ergos for compactness and capacity, or the need for the functional parts of the gun's mechanism to dictate its shape.

          If you're talking about military guns specifically then things get a bit more complex. Early ones were often heavy and clunky because of the need to standardize and reduce the cost of mass production. I'll grant you that the average AR is more ergonomic--it's got an adjustable LOP, it's much lighter, etc.
          Sporting arms are a different story though.

    3d printers are awesome for making little bullshit ding a lings for tools n shit
    like I have a drawer full of ER20 Tormach endmill holders, they are round so they just bang around in the drawer, 3d print up some brackets that precisely fit the holders now the drawer is all organized and they dont roll around
    or like Im sick of not having a place for the chuck key on my drill press, print up a little bracket so I can stick the key in there

    or I need to drill 9 holes in precise areas, print up a drill template
    or I need to file something that has a compound arc in it, print up a fixture that holds the part with fall away up to the shape I need to file into the part, now I can quickly file in a precise shape
    or I want to do some metal casting, print up the part as a pattern, coat it in bondo or epoxy, sand that smooth, now I have a complex casting pattern EZ
    maybe theres some little bullshit braket on a window that is broken that is a complex shape andnot made anymore, model it in CAD and print one up

    If you have basic CAD expertise or know where to look online you can make stuff like shotgun shell holders or those nifty plastic cases reloaders store their shinies in for pennies on the dollar. It's also a godsend if you're into hobbyist robotics or stuff like arduino automation, which you should be because those things are cool and can be very PrepHole with a go-getter attitude.
    Don't bother trying to rely on them for any sort of heavy use, but filament's so cheap that even a wagie can have an infinite supply of basically whatever cheap plastic shit they want (within reason).
    Also buy calipers, and if you're getting a cheap chinkesium model I'd also suggest learning how to soldier.

    I really like the old leather pouches classic stripper clip fed bolt actions use, but my only bolt action is a 7.35 Carcano and that ammo is unobtanium. Can those pouches fit any decent amount of shotgun shells? I haven't taken any shells to a surplus store to check

      The Russian mosin pouches (which are honestly the best tbh, the rubberized faux leather canvas they used holds up a lot better over time) will hold 6 shells of 12 ga in each cell, the German style k98 3 cell pouches only hold two per cell
      I don't have one on hand but the JNA pouches are a lot bigger and I bet you could fit like 8 in them.
      I've heard of a few people using them for 4.10 or 20ga, which would hold a lot more, but I only have 12ga ammo on hand atm.

    Do you ever stop to think about how cool the AR is? It's the most common rifle design, so we rarely ever talk about how special it is from a mechanical standpoint. When you actually think about how good the concepts were, you understand why the military thought that it was pure magic back in 1960s and that they could do the dumbest shit with the design.

      I always found the idea of the barrel extension and buffer tube real neat ideas to lighten up a rifle a shame they're pretty underappreciated and not copied too much I bet you could find a way to fold the buffer tube on top of the receiver to make it foldable or a bullpup instead of just making the recoil worse

    I read on forums their slide can crack, for some it happens after shooting like 10 rds, meanwhile some others have no issues at all after hundreds if not thousands of rounds. Internet exacerbates issues that can be relatively rare so I don't really know what to think. After all these pistols were in use in several military/police forces for years after the war so obviously they can last for pretty long. What do you guys think?

    The world is your oyster when you have a 3D printer, Anon.

    The gas cooktop in my apartment has a weird shutoff mechanism that wouldn't work at low settings. I printed something to lock the shutoff so that I could get a low flame for most of my cooking (sauteeing vegetables, making omelets, making sauces).

    You can make grenades. I have several designs now.

    You can make happy fun firecontrol parts for the AR-15 and the Glock. Yankee Boogle, Buenos DIAS, LLs, bunch more designs available.

    I also made a fill tube for my air mattress because the air pump I have was cut out of my old air mattress and isn't actually designed to work as a separate pump. The tube has a double taper on it so that one end fits the air pump and the other end fits into the air mattress. The tapers are to ensure that I can force them in on both sides to make a tight seal.

    3D printers are almost a necessity if you're into quadcopters. You can make all sorts of interesting customizations, from grenade droppers (and grenades) to rotor guards to burrito carriers to camera mounts to I dunno what else.

    Sextoys. Want a custom dildo for your ass? Print a mold and then cast it in silicone. Want your girlfriend (or "girlfriend") to wear a tailplug? Custom fit it to her (or "her") asshole.

    Cosplay armor, cosplay swords, cosplay accessories.

    Wings and fuselages for drones.

    Replacement keycaps for your favorite keyboard (resin printers are better for this).

    USB flash drive organizers.

    Robot parts.

    Positives for making investment casting molds. Use PLA, then burn it out.

    Tools to shape things. I watched a video where someone was making a manifold for some weird car thing like a turbo or whatever. The ends of the tubes connecting it to the engine, and the tube ends for connecting to the whatever, had to have specific shapes. He pressed aluminum over printed plastic to get the shapes correct.

        You can buy an Ender 3 for $100 on sale at Microcenter, or build a Voron for around $2000. A factory-built Prusa is in the middle at about $1100. It all depends on your budget and your interest level.

        You might have to spend a few days getting the Ender tuned and tweaked, and it will be lacking some of the higher-end features like a PEI bed. A factory-built Prusa is normally ready to produce high quality output as soon as it's plugged in, and I think they come with a spring-steel PEI bed (printing surface) included. The Voron is a home-built machine that you can customize in exactly the way you want, so there's not really a comparison.

        And then there are also the more specialized printers like the CR-30, which is a belt bed printer so that you can print items that are long in one direction. People print six-foot-long cosplay swords on those.

        As other anon said, I do recommend starting with an ender 3. They aren't hard to get running, but as cheap as they are you can do most stuff with it. If you like printing you can find a printer that has the stuff you really want. If you dont like it, you can sell and recoup some of your money and only be out 50-100 bucks.

    Is "Seasoning" guns a thing? Just like how you would season a cast iron pan.
    Wipe it down with a light coat of oil and stick it in the oven at 300 or so for a bit then take it out and let it cool to room temp then repeat until desired results.
    Has anybody done this?

      Parkerized surfaces need oil to be effective. Parkerization creates tiny cavities in the surface of the metal, and when you oil it you're filling those cavities and giving it the corrosion resistance

      >Is "Seasoning" guns a thing?
      Kinda. Muzzleloaders are known to foul a lot when they are brand new and as they are shot the constant application of bullet lube to the bore with every shot makes it smooth out and become easier and easier to clean over time. Also, in the past (19th century and before) all sorts of strange methods were used for "browning" or "blacking" barrels. Some of these methods would have called for using heat to polymerize an oil, wax, fat, etc, on the metal to stop it rusting.
      I would not go sticking guns in the oven at any sort of high temperature, you could easily fuck up the heat treatment of the metal since domestic ovens are notoriously inaccurate. And what would be the purpose? We have much better surface treatments available nowadays and guns aren't made out of cast iron.

        Idk I'm bored and thought it would be worth a shot. Might do it with my cheap pistol just because. I doubt 300-350 degrees would fuck anything up as long as I don't quench it.

          I doubt it would either.
          The question you should be asking is how do you know that's the temperature they will actually be at? If you have a lab oven, fine. If you have a normal residential cooking oven and you set it for 350 it can EASILY be off by 50 degrees or more, not to mention the temperature will oscillate above and below your set temp because domestic ovens have shitty bang-bang thermostats instead of proper PID control. I wouldn't trust a domestic oven with 100 degrees of any sort of tempering temperature.

          Anyway, hopefully the pointless built-up coating of oil you'll be applying to your pistol won't be thick enough to induce malfunctions.

            Yea, hopefully. That's why I'm using my cheap gun. I'll just stick in a thermometer to make sure it isn't wildly off. And I have convection so heat throughout the oven should be the same.

              It will be impossible to ruin a barrel's heat treatment with a domestic kitchen oven. Don't worry about. You'd have to leave it in there for months/years at the highest setting to get all the precipitates back into the metallic solution, which would be the definition of ruining the heat treatment.

    I was recently looking to purchase a PX4 storm compact and saw some gucci versions with “trigger jobs”. Looking into it more no components were replaced and all that was done was “polishing all points of contact”.
    What’s to stop someone from doing this themselves? Maybe I’m naïve but it doesn’t seem that complicated to get some fine grit and garden gnomeelers polish to smooth components down yourself.
    Anyone I’ve experience doing this? Is this a terrible idea?

      garden gnomeeler's polish is so fine it won't fuck anything up. Its used on the softest metals so hard steel guns will be more than fine. Go ahead and try it. I shot a full size px4 and loved the stock trigger.

      Actually anon,what is used are fine grained cutting stones similar to what you sharpen a knife.If you accidentally change the geometry of your pistol’s trigger, you can do some serious harm. You want your trigger release to feel like breaking a glass rod,and not release when you just look at it. Think it over hard and do some serious research.

      Not necessarily laughed at, but some trap ranges have a minimum barrel length requirement. This is usually posted so it's something to check in advance.

      You might also get a lot of spread if you have full cylinder bore barrels (IE no choke) which could make it hard to reliably break clays when they fly out a bit too far.

      Pretty sure if you have one it would be a conflict of interest, so they wouldn't want to date you for that reason alone. Weirder things have happened though.

      Don't sxs shotguns generally have a different choke in each barrel? IIRC it was cylinder (no choke) in one and a much tighter one in the other. You might have issues with that depending on how it's set up.

      Hey PrepHole, I got one for you guys. I recently inherited an M11 or 10 S&W revolver. It says 38S&W on the barrel; but it seems that the cylinder was swapped with one for 38spl. There was an extra cylinder in the case with the firearm that has numbers matching the frame. This extra cylinder will not accept my 38spl ammo but the one currently in the firearm will. Am I going to blow my hand off running 38spl out of this thing?

      >tl;dr is .38spl and .38s&w the same size bullet with just casing differences?

      Thanks PrepHole.

      I would ask /hg/ (handgun general) about that, but the only thing I'd be concerned with IMO is if the timing is right for both of the cylinders. Basically that the bullets align with the barrel when it's fired. I would assume whoever had an extra cylinder had it fit to the gun, but you never know. If they were fit or re-fit, you may see some hammer or punch marks around the cuts on the side/rear of the cylinder to move metal where the "bolt" or "cylinder stop" (depends what you want to call it) locks the cylinder from moving just before the hammer drops (part is towards the rear bottom of the cylinder cutout). An anon in an old /rg/ (revolver general) thread had a revolver had had its timing (or lockup, perhaps) adjusted in that way. And IIRC you can shoot .38 S&W out of a .38 special so I don't see why you couldn't shoot .38 special out of a .38 S&W (with converted cylinder or a swappable cylinder unless they have a different forcing cone shape or something.

      But we all know that someone will correct me if I said some dumb shit, I hope.

      There were lots of post-WWII Victory model M-10s that had their .38 S&W cylinders drilled out to chamber .38 Spl. and had no problems with firing as long as timing was fine, since .38 Spl. is a very low pressure round as far as handgun rounds go. If you’re concerned about the bore diameter being too small, just use plain lead bullets that will shave off in the forcing cone more, but there shouldn’t be an issue.

      A cheap POS given a fancy-sounding name so it can be more easily sold. You see this a lot with shotguns because they are trying to sound like the names of the famous old UK makers like Holland & Holland, Charles Lancaster, Manton, Purdey, Alexander Henry, Boss, Churchill, etc.

      It's assuredly a copy of some existing design, maybe a Remington 1100? Post a pic zoomed out where we can see more of the gun.

        Here is a pic of a partial "dissasembly". To me it seems that the "Gas catcher cup (bright steel cilindre behind the "gas block" )unlocks the action while the recoil cycles it, . I am not taking the pins out (at least not yet)to show you the guts but there is NO visible spring in there however there is a metal "rod" behind the bolt that seems to get pushed into the grip/stock when cycling so the spring is prolly located there. It is around 3.7 kg, /8 lbs 2.5 ounces (dont have a good scale) . It cycles light 24 gram-- (7/8 of an ounce loads, i tested multiple ammo brands ), and heavyer B&P 36 grams -- (slightly heavyer then 1 and 1/8 of an ounce ) shells reliably. With exceptions (mirage dispersion 36g is the only non reliable ammo for it I have found, the casing occasionally expands to much and the extractor can not fully extract it or feed it back on its own, might be gun or ammo related, prolly an occasional " bad" shell ). The pattern is centered, and the gun "fits" me so i can quickly find the sights. It only takes 2 and 3/4 inch shells (12/70 mm) capacity has been plugged to 2+1. My late grandfather bought it in the 80s for around 5000 doich marks(he claimed 5000 but he might have been telling tall tails for other hunters, as one occasionally does)

      Most people won't know which variety of Slav you are, unless of course you have a Russian accent. If anyone asks, just tell them that you support Ukraine.

      I for one don't assume anything about what side someone is on. My boss's wife is Russian and has been angry and unhappy about the whole mess since it started in 2014; she hates Putin for it. Meanwhile I have a longtime friend from Texas who apparently has brain damage or something because he fell for the Russian propaganda line and is rootin' for Pootin. Sad, many such cases.

      My one recent experience with a Russian was finding out that the owner of a specialty retailer I was buying some stuff from is a Russian emigrant. I didn't want to bring up the war because I'm sure he's gotten enough people bitching at him about it already. Since he's not in Russia, I assume he's seen the real news about the situation and isn't brainwashed. I hope when I departed his shop, he thought, "wow, that was nice, I didn't get shit on for being Russian for once this week" and had a better day.

      But maybe I'm just weird, since I'm a dual citizen of Iran, and no one looks at middle-class white American me and says "I bet he fucks camels in his spare time." I constantly run into people who seem perfectly polite and then they start spouting off about glassing Tehran "because Israel is our greatest ally!" and so on. Meanwhile, the Israelis sell American weapons system secrets to China, and they've murdered hundreds of Iranians just to try to stop or slow down research projects in Iran, but apparently all of that is just fine in the minds of patriotic Murricans like the "nuke Iran!" crowd. And of course if I try to explain that, gee, maybe the U.S. shouldn't have overthrown the Iranian government in the 1950s, then installed a brutal dictator for the next quarter century, and yes the U.S. embassy really was a bunch of CIA spies, and by the way most Iranians hate the Islamist regime and are pro-American, they get all pissy.

    The question I have is, I'm a pretty lanky dude, and I'm wondering if 12ga will have too much of a kick for me. I've fired an SVD before and the 7.62 didn't give me much trouble, though I -was- quite drunk at the time.
    I was thinking of 20 gauge but it's like they dont fucking recognize this caliber where I live, it's all 12 or 16 and 16ga has a lot less ammo available.

      12 gauge should be fine if you can handle 7.62X54. Different 12 gauge loads have different amounts of kick. Birdshot doesn't kick much, buckshot kicks more and slugs kick more still. You can get low recoil loads if you need.

      Stock with 12.
      Recoil is dependent not only on gauge but more on payload weight and velocity, to a lesser extent wadding inside the shell and weight of the gun to help brace and absorb some of the recoil generated.

      Instead of a single shot, get a decent pump action. Start with lower velocity ammunition and move up to the hotter loads as you get comfortable.
      Also, be weary of Turkish made shotguns. Some of the designs are ok, but their material quality and QC is all over the place. A lot of them completely crumble and break within the first couple of shots. I took a chance and had good results, but I cannot in clean conscience recommend taking the chance if there's money/licensing restrictions/time involved that you can't recoup if it's a lemon. There are a lot of affordable, high quality Italian shotguns available in Europe with a far better track record.

      I have a budget of somewhere between $500-$800 (before glass) for a .308 to shoot at deer. Would prefer wood but could settle for soulless synthetic crap. What should I get?

      Tikka is great, wood stocks are available on Savage 110, Bergara and Howa 1500s as well.
      More interesting option, Browning BLR. It's a lever action in 308 made in Japan. Because of all the hype surrounding the Henry Long Ranger nobody cares about BLRs right now and they are completely overlooked on the secondhand market despite being cheaper and far better.

      Henry Rifle, Winchester 94 in a bout a zillion different calibers,Spencer Rifle had one in the stock...

      Those aren't semi automatic.

      Thanks anon

      There are tons of semi auto tube fed 22 rifles.
      Beyond that, Ruger made two 44 Magnum carbines. One used a scaled up 10/22 rotary magazine, but the earlier one used a tube.

      I can't decide whether I want an AK or an AR, dubs decides for me

      AR is going to be easier.

      Is Gunbroker supposed to be a hassle to fucking set up? It wants a dozen different things before it lets you use it.

      They want a lot of verification to cut down on scammers, anti gun trolls, hood rats, straw buyers and people who can't pass a background check. It's never going to be totally effective, but the more steps involved the more trash get filtered out. Unfortunately, since we're talking a firearm marketplace it's going to be a magnet for all kinds of bad actors.

      Semiautos recoil less harshly and a 12 is sufficient for all shotgun aplications and a safe option.
      16 gauge is sufficient for all shotgun aplications i can think of.

      As far as a 16 goes:generraly noticably lighter (lanky build, might be a benefit for hunting purposes only, carrying a heavy gun up a mountain is annoying), less recoiling with most load weights,
      16 ga guns are cheap and ussually in a barely used or unussed condition.
      16 gauge is fine as long as you buy ammo well in advance of shooting it (build a little stockpile throughout a fiew months you just top off before or after shooting) . 4 ammo types that should cover most bases. a box or 2 of Slugs (each box in my experience comes with 10 rnds) , 2 boxes (25 per box) of 2-3mm birdshot and 2 boxes (25 per box)of 3-4 mm birdshot , and at least 4 boxes of trap and or skeet loads if you are into that
      Ask around at your local gunshops before deciding between 12 or 16. Ask what 16 gauge ammo they have , how much, and if they ask tell em you are thinking about buying one but arent sure.
      For 12 you will find everything you might need. The optimal load weight for a 16 hunting ammo (outside of specialised purposes)is around 1 ounce (about 28 ish grams), for a 12 is 1 + 1/8 ounce (32 ish grams). Very heavy loads ussualy get an irregular pattern or only improove marginal hit effectiveness while reducing center pattern density-paull harel has a video on 3 inch (76mm) and 3.5 inch (89 mm) magnums (extremes)

        It's a shame this caliber is falling into oblivion. Most people don't need the extra power given by 12ga. 16ga shotguns are lighter and less of an hassle to have around, they would serve them better.

          12ga is great for adapters, though.

    When I see gunpowder grains, I see either small spheres or tubular 'sprinkles'. Is there a specific advantage/tradeoff to using one or the other, or is it just a manufacturing quirk?

    • 1 month ago

      Shape probably depends on how fast the powder burns. It's all about surface area and the specifics of said powder. For example, shotgun powder is often discs. Part manufacturing process, but IMO more to do with controlling burn rate/surface area.

      There are leverguns that use a "removable tube" type magazine (think Marlin model 60) or a detachable box magazine. I can't be fucked to look them up for you but they're out there.

        Never handled a shotgun before so i just think it'd be easier for me to load quickly if I had to. Something semi-auto, like a KS-12 or VR80. I really do want an AA-12 but I have no idea where to look for one, nor do I really have money to burn

          You are not getting an aa12, not even a semi auto clone. IIRC the last time someone tried that the ATF threw a shitfit and recalled them because of some reason; I forget.

          Shotgun mags are annoying, very bulky and sometimes troublesome, there's a reason why pretty much everyone uses tube fed shotties for serious purpuses. Get a used mav 88, if you somehow really dislike it you won't have lost a lot of money but chances are you'll stick to that kind of shotgun. In that case, you could either keep it as they work well, or upgrade to something else like a moss 500 or whatever that pleases you

              The big fat rims on shotguns shells make for really problematic feeding when using a mag, a tube lining them up back to front is way more sensible, reliable, compact, and ergonomic.
