I wanna build a Para FAL to go with my Imbel fullsize, but I can't decide between an surplus Imbel front end with a 17.2" barrel for $300, or a brand new DSA with a 16" barrel for $495. What do?

Ordered the 17.2 barrel assembly and a DSA para lower kit. Unfortunately, DSA won't ship receivers to NY, and I have heard mixed reviews about Coonans, although my fullsize has a Coonan reveiver and I've had no problems. I will be looking for a DSA or Imbel receiver on gunbroker. Pics to come when stuff arrives.

Does anyone actually make a 80% FAL? Anyway, I'll be making this legal through the non detachable magazine route. It's a PITA but it's not worth the potential loss of firearm rights to me to have this be a practical gun. I have other more sensible guns if I ever need them.

I FINALLY got my NY pistol permit and it's unrestricted (can CCW in NY). I have a CZ-75b on order with my FFL. I wouldn't mind carrying that in the winter under a coat, but I also need a summer carry handgun. I'm thinking Glock 26. I have a G26 BlueGun that I've been practicing drawing with, but is the Glock 43 THAT much better for CCW?

Went up to Dallas this past weekend and met up with a MG buddy.
He brought out his Steyr AUG A1 and his RPB MAC-11 in .380.
I brought out my Chinese AK and AR-18.

The AUG was surprisingly fun. The main thing I have against bullpups is the trigger but in full auto who gives a damn. I consistently shot in 2 round bursts and there is minimal muzzle climb so I was able to stay on target at 15 yards through the scope. Again, it really is remarkable how little muzzle rise there is. You can one-hand magdump from the hip as easily as a SMG.

Of course, the MAC is a bullet hose, but I will say it's a funner bullet hose in .380 than it is in 9mm. I was able to keep bursts to about 5 rounds or so. Of course, the stock and front strap aren't really worth a damn. It's uncomfortable to shoulder and try to get a cheek weld. The cyclic rate is so high that little piles of unburned powder built up on the floor. Occasionally, residual powder left in the receiver would spark up after the gun was empty.

Fun times, regardless.

When i shot this for the first time, i thought i´m shooting with a BB Gun. Not to mention the almost non-existent recoil.

The trigger gave us headaches sometimes in the army. Cannot remember which part worn out in the trigger assembly, but either it blocked you from going FA, or you completely went FA on the slightest pull. Been fun times when our seargent yelled "2 single shots on target, open fire" and most of our guys went BRRRRRT.

MidwayUSA had Gen1 kits on sale for $50 a piece so I got two on a lark. The Gen2 looks way better but they were still $150. It looks pink in the picture but it's listed as purple and in person it looks like a light easter egg purple.

I'm planning on testing my build with my existing, definitely functional Glock 22 upper and then assembling a Glock 34/35 slide with a threaded .357 Sig barrel and ideally a cut for an RMR too. Eventually I'd like 5.5 inch barrels in 9mm and .40 too.

I see quite a lot of people sharing your view, but none of them seem to enjoy shooting buckshot, slugs, and more with bird's head.

I don't like bird's head, but I routinely shoot boxes and boxes of slugs, buckshot, turkey magnums using pistol grips. So I can't say I understand the bird's head thing very much... Only the most horrendous 3" 2oz turkey maximum-load ever got a sting in the hands, as much as I can tolerate a box of those, I can't imagine shooting even one with a bird's head grip. The way I see it, pistol grip is pretty much like palm-striking a punching bag, it's incredibly strong at taking impacts.

Might be gripping technique. Might just be hand differences, the shape of a grip from one hand to another probably magnifies the physical differences between people exponentially as recoil energy increases. Might also be a combination of the two. Perhaps further testing is required any excuse to fire ye olde handgonnes. I'll have to track down a bird's head grip though...
>> No. 105942 ID: 815268
>>105940
The birdshead, for me, seems to distribute the recoil throughout my hand, wrist, and forearm, vs a PGO set up where it seems all the recoil is absorbed by the web of my hand and my wrist.

That's just how it feels to me. But yeah, it still leaves you sore to shoot 70 high brass 00 loads in 45 minutes lol.

I was about to write stuff about grip technique but fucking shit ammo up here is stupid expensive, literally nothing under a buck fifty per shell. Who cares about grips when it's the wallet that cries mercy before the hands.

When I track down some shotguns with burbface grips or PGO I'll save up my pennies (all of them) and have a good day making the berms noticeably heavier. It might be a while but I'll probably post the results in this thread.

So it's really hard to get anything for .587" bore but my buddy has some old lead bullets for his 577 Snider black powder.

I figured 170 grains of Trail Boss might be able to get a 520 grain lead bullet out the barrel.

The results were... Interesting.

I don't think that's true. It was my understanding that the Rifle is a DD but the ammo would only be a DD if it contained more than 1/4 ounce of explosive.

Dunno if it's a dumb idea or not yet. But I was thinking about making an AEK style counterweight system for my 74 kit that I haven't gotten around to finishing. Here is some crappy drawings I did while at work. I'm feverishly measuring some parts right now for a real drawing. Don't have much stuff other than mics and calipers to do REAL measurements at home (no rock, no height gage, no gage blocks, etc.) but I'm confident I can kind of wing most of it except for a couple precision bores. But I can measure those later with some better stuff.

Sorry. The picture is confusing. The thread is on the front gas tube, and a little collar thing. That way, I can screw the collar down to shorten the length of the tube for removal. The inside of the collar that mates with the block is chamfered and will have a matching chamfer on the block for centering the tube to the block. Thinking about this a second time though, makes me think this may be a flawed plan, since carbon would be let into the threads. And as I know from my zig zag brake, it can build up significantly.

The front will be a lot of machining. I pretty much accept that. I could have started with a raw forging that some US company made (or I guess just buy a made front sight gas block combo and make it work) but my autisms requires the proper muzzle threads and the proper look etc.

Yeah, I'm sure it will take a lot of work tuning. I know the forealz version has a long narrow weight with a rack cut into it, and a rack cut into the bolt carrier/piston and a tiny gear that ensures both recoil the same amount and the same speed. That sounds super hard though. Since it would require a lot of modification to the existing BCG design.

I see it now, and I think if you have a vent hole before the threads, it should keep the threads from being exposed to too much high pressure dirty gas.

>tuning
>original AEK
Yep, all that stuff in the AEK in the counter-recoil mass totals, I assume, to an equal mass as the total reciprocating mass in the action. It doesn't look like you'll be able to cram like half a pound in that counter-recoil mass, so you'll have to make it go faster to compensate, but that might make it feel funny.

You could set up a compound spring for the counter-recoil mass, and try to tune spring weights and port size while keeping counter-recoil mass constant, because you're not going to be putting that much weight into the counter recoil in the first place so I'd put in as much as I could and work on the other variables. You could probably straight up grab an old broken endmill shank that's the right size and use that as a counter-recoil mass, tungsten carbide is heavy and wouldn't get all play-dough inside a gun like a mass made entirely out of lead.

>I was thinking about making an AEK style counterweight system for my 74 kit that I haven't gotten around to finishing.

Is there even any point to this (outside being mechanically interesting of course) if the rifle isn't full auto?
>> No. 105925 ID: 19518e
>>105923
Counter-recoil is a way to reduce the recoil impulse by cancelling out the recoil caused by the reciprocating mass driven by gas. Normally competition shooters (and other kinds too but you know what I'm saying) will do this by simply reducing the mass of the reciprocating components and messing with cycling speed to try and retain reliability. Counter-recoil isn't my personal glass of spiders because it increases the total mass of the firearm, but it is a cool concept.

Obviously it doesn't change the recoil caused by the bullet and gas exiting the barrel, but that should go without saying. It's all about the other extra bumps and tugs when the clockwork is flopping about getting old cans out and new bottles in.

For me, it's just a machining exercise, and to make a gun have a reason to exist in my collection, since I have an AK74 already (with the triangle folder, unlike this kit, which is a fixed stock one).

  A while ago we had a thread about high-speed photography and such. I think my friend and I took some curious pictures today, not sure how interesting they will be, but it was enlightening to learn what a DSLR could do in this kind of situation.

The camera in question is an Olympus E-510 with a Zuiko 14-58 F2.8 lens, a little dated and nothing special to begin with. In the midday sun, we were able to get a fast enough shutter to be able to capture bullets. Because of how these kinds of shutters function, the bullets are still quite blurry and faint but they're still visible.

Video is related to explain how the shutters typically work, to explain why the bullets weren't exactly as crisp as one would expect from shutter speeds of 1/4000th of a second, and why they're blurry in a slightly asymmetrical way due to a "rolling shutter" effect.

Also these guys shooting a giggle-switched AR-15 was adorable, great footage as well.

Or just an 8lbs shotgun with a 3.5" chamber.

A few manufacturers make 2 1/4oz turkey loads (984 grains) at 1200ft/s.

Might not look like too much is going on due to my personal enjoyment of such situations, but this does net 70.8ft-lbs at 23.9 ft/s. I've fired more of this ammo than I like to admit.

To compare, a .458 Win Mag from a 9 lbs rifle sending a 500gr bullet at 2100ft/s provides 62.3 ft-lbs at 21.1ft/s of delicious recoil. Close enough for the raifus I go out with.

I bet the muzzle brake helps soften up the Vepr recoil. I went with a 1919 because the stock is in-line with the barrel, you can see here how the muzzle stays relatively tame despite the bare muzzle. It's pretty fun to see those slugs race out past 40 yards too, lookatemgo.

Ignore the xbox scope, it's all I had after the QD mount was kill when recoil made it shit its guts out from under an Aimpoint.
