More pew pew. The Glock 17 MOS was a bit of a "what the hell" buy. A good host for an Aimpoint ACRO whenever that comes out. The MK4 is to replace my MK2 as a training gun, and the Sig P365 because I'm on a pocket pistol kick.

I've finally decided that I'm going to pull the trigger and build an AR-15 (of sorts; SCR Lower). I've set aside money for the lower, just waiting on Brownells or Budsgunshop to have them instock again. In the mean time I'm going to build up the upper, 100% from scratch (well from parts because I'm not a machinist).

Why not just buy an upper? I actually want to really learn something out of this.

Why an SCR lower? I broke my hand long before joining the Marine Corps. Being young and dumb and not wating to miss work I would duck tape my hand into a ball for work (pulling rocks out of the blueberry barrens) and then tape my fingers and hand out on make shift splints after work. Suffice to say it never healed right and now shooting a true pistol grip actually kind of hurts. Straightish stocks work much better for me.

Has anyone here assembled their own upper?
Any good guides to read?
Manufactures to avoid? (obviously avoid poverty pony stuff)
Manufactures you like?

Over all I'm going for an upper that looks somewhat milspec, sans the forward assist (SCR bolt can't utilize one) and carry handle. Almost mini-14ish in overall asthetics.

Pic semi-related. I'm thinking of a wood buttstock because #woodissexyasfuck

personally i never found brownells to be a particularly good place to shop for AR parts for cheap. i guess it's because i've always found better deals elsewhere, but it's nice to get all of your shit from one place.

patrician choice.

>I decided I'm going the 6.5 Grendel route last second. I've been doing a lot of reading and for my needs (plinking -> hunting) it seems like the better choice.
i'd have personally started with a 5.56 but i was tossing around the idea of building a 12.5" 6.5 grendel pistol to hunt with myself. at least there are cheap steel-cased offerings out there to plink with, i have no qualms about shooting tulammo/wolf crap through any of my guns.

i don't know if there was an option for this at brownells either, but i'd assume they are at least on top of their game and offer the 6.5 grendel stuff with the type 2 chamber if you enjoy having fingers and a face.

>laser sintering
I'll have to disagree. That's not exactly a part with complicated internal geometry so there's a lot of reasons why laser sintering would not be ideal.

Looks more like MIM where they made the part simple to mold out by making it solid (no internal features), then made the internal features with a drilling operation or whatever needed after. From the smaller deeper hole, looks very clearly like a drill hole, then there's a larger diameter and less deep internal shoulder, done with either a counterbore or just an endmill (possibly another drill, hard to judge angle of shoulder from here, it could be a 135 degree tip or something). As it's an internal feature that isn't normally visible so they'd just feed harder to reduce cycle time so would likely leave marks like that.

Still, it's hard to say for sure. It's possible that it's sintering, I just think it's unlikely.

Tags: bankruptcy, H9, hudson, lawsuit

Hudson Manufacturing, makers of the much-vaunted Hudson H9, filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy on March 14th. This is, presumably, in direct response to their previously cataloged troubles. Cambridge Valley Machining has sued Hudson over unpaid debts after being contracted to machine parts for them.
Chapter 7 Bankruptcy

There are several different types, or chapters, of bankruptcies that individuals and companies can file for. Hudson has filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, meaning that they have chosen to liquidate all their assets to absolve their debts.

Well luckily most single use and multi-use rocket launchers have "dumb" proof direction on the launcher or on the rocket.
Although I have see too many people try and use them backwards.The only thing i wish the put on things in bold letters is that it is recoiless so they don't anticipate the shot and put the rocket in the ground.

An LMG-25, or honestly, any of Adolph Furrer's designs. Parts are unobtanium to even attempt building a semi, and its really the last big piece missing from my Swiss guns collection, but itll never happen.

Any of the protoype Swiss semi-autos like the Sk-46 or Ak-44 where they jammed a semi-auto action into a K31.

Been looking at the keltech RFB as well, seems comparable and so much cheaper. Actually starting to look like the best choice.
>> No. 108347 ID: d3cbb0
I too was drooling of the Tavor until... I held one. Felt cheap and the trigger sucked (bullpup I know but still)
I had an RFB for a time and it was surprisingly reliable even with Brown Bear garbage ammo and alternating brass nato and wolf. It did fine. Eventually it ended up in my friend's possession and he put a suppressor on it and it broke the ?slide?operating plate? spring retainer piece? The company sent him a Gen 2 part which was beefier and that did the job. It was actually a decent gun. Good luck checking the chamber though...

>rear heavy, with reciprocating mass well above the shooter's firing hand making the gun teeter-totter in recoil impulse.

AR-15 impulse by comparison. This particular AR has a 14.5" barrel, FA BCG, carbine gas, and a regular birdcage. The difference is more dramatic when shooting them side by side versus watching a potatocam video.

  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.

To be fair these are rare in the worst of cases and really only happen with dubious ammo. I think it would be best to immediately clear a malfunction normally and if you're using ammo that could be weird, make a note to let the malfunction sit for a second as an exception.

Great job dude. I thought you shot pretty well. You'll get faster. Just work on safe and smooth for now.

With your stage two poppers, you got excited and blew your wad, then slowed down and recovered. Good work there.

When you hit, speed up. When you miss, slow down. All too often when someone's shooting and they miss, they try to speed up to make up for the miss, and miss more.

I'm not sure about the belt real estate. I bought this under and over belt combo from Stormrider Gear some years ago and it uses MOLLE on the outside portion of the belt. I don't know if it helps, but I guess the accessories were designed not to take much space

I wonder if BAR gunners in WW1 used makeshift shooting sticks like hunters sometimes do to steady their guns.
Shooting sticks are teo or three sticks lashed together at an axis and a rifle is placed above this to steady it. I have seen shooting sticks that looked like old drumsticks tied together with string or crocheted yarn that worked quite well to steady rifles or shotguns.

Not even sure if my trip will work.. Greets from Paducah KY, nonetheless.

Anyhow- Biggest part of shooting the M1918 (not A1/A2) is recoil control
When you hit the trigger, there is a dwell time as the gas rod (carrying the bolt) moves forward to chamber and fire the cartridge. It's pretty significant, as in "if you've fired a flintlock, a M1918 is nothing".

So, you take your marksman BAR gunner and give them some pokeysticks.
IF and only IF they really know their shit, will said bitsa make a difference. You HAVE to practice followthrough.

But. If you do this the M1918 is stupidly accurate. I mean "hand this to a well trained 'tard and he will cut ragged holes" kind of accurate.

The time of lock, and force of lock are amazing, plus the action will just about always set off a round, barring the worst of the worst.

This means that if the guy slapping the loud switch does his bit, the M1918 will put shots on target with annoying reliability.

I carry an inexpensive American Derringer Corp M-1 .45 Colt/.410x2.5" snake gun when I go on hikes in rattlesnake country or occasionally when I carry concealed. Back in the late '80s in San Jose, California, I was hiking with a friend in the hills and we came upon a large rattlesnake under a thorny bush. We could have just gone around the angry reptile, but my friend pulled out a stainless steel clone of a Remington 1865 Double Derringer Model 95 and fired at the snake. His gun was loaded with .410 shotgun cartridges filled with small birdshot. Worked like a charm! Dead rattlesnake. Remember to carry this in an open holster if you do not have a concealed carry permit.

My ADC Derringer is heavy for it's size (especially when compared to modern pocket pistols) and the single-action hammer is very stiff (especially when compared to single-action revolvers like the Ruger Vaquero). Breaking the barrels open is very stiff as well (especially when compared to other derringers). She only has a half-inch of rifled barrel where the 2.5" shotgun breach stop is. Will also fire the substantial .45 Colt cartridge and the recoil is not as punishing as I thought it would be. Some .410 shotgun cartridges load 3 or 4 000 buckshot or slugs or compact metal discs, but many of these self defense .410 loads are for the 3" cartridges and larger derringers that load them. The round rosewood grips are nice and they fit my hand nicely even though the handle is so small. She has a hammer-blocking safety button (important!) and very rudimentary sights. Back when I bought this, in the early '90s, they were around $100, in I remember right. Now, they are $500! Ludicrous! But they chamber the 3" shotgun cartridges, so you get that.

For conceal carry, the Double Derringer is not bad, but you only have two shots, but those shots are substantial.

For pocket pistols in .45 ACP, there are many to choose from. Glock 36, Colt Defender, Sig Sauer P250 Compact, Kahr CW45, and the expensive Kimber Super Carry Ultra HD.

In the battle of concealed carry firearms with the slimmest profile, the Springfield XD-S has taken the crown. With its 0.9 inch slide width, it has overtaken the KAHR pistol as the concealed carry .45 caliber pistol with the slimmest profile. It comes in 3.3" and 4.0" barrel lengths.
