Revolvers are cool but is there anyone who makes a stout bolt-action long gun out of exotic heavy alloys that boast improved durability?

Chunky pieces feel good and it would make for a nice heirloom gun.

They use stellite sleeves in machineguns, having one in a rifle would probably be interesting. Would a tungsten alloy sleeve work? In general making a barrel as laminate of different materials seems like a viable idea.

Oh and speaking of tungsted, apparently they use it for outsidecoating https://www.winchesterguns.com/products/rifles/model-70/current/model-70-extreme-tungsten.html

I'm pretty sure that's just the name of a cerakote color, it's not actual tungsten. Also I think the reason stellite is used in MG barrels is mainly for wear resistance at high temperatures, I don't think it would provide much benefit in a bolt action.

Stellite is supposed to slow down throat erosion drastically. You might also have a rifle in .220 swift or .22-250 that are quite hot.

Interesting gas system. The length of the shell dictates the gas flow, as ports are covered up by the shell itself at the various lengths. Did clays all afternoon with it, cycled great. Taking it goose hunting this weekend.

Loosen up the rules, use the site instead of alternatives. Make at least 3 // with minimal rules so people and come back regularly. Russia invaded Ukraine about a week ago and I can't find the thread...


If I start a thread and I have to check in daily to keep up with it, even if half the content is semi irrelevant or it gets hijacked, at least it keeps regular interest. If it gets one reply a week. Well I'll be back in about 6 months and maybe respond to 2 of those. That's a pretty dead board.

In a post post apocalyptic scenario where all modern ammunition has been nearly expended, do you think that say something like a handmade .45-70 rolling block would be a good choice for a long arm? How hard do you think it would be to make with hand tools? Are there any simpler builds that aren't muzzleloaders?

I'd be thinking a toplock shotgun style action.
>> No. 110262 ID: bcc095
If you're sticking strictly to manufacturing something new, you're probably right. You could cast lead projectiles pretty easily, your brass and barrel would last longer with a low pressure cartridge and you could, etc.

But I think the variety of things that would need to be manufactured from scratch in austere conditions would make building guns and ammunition with hand tools and truly raw materials pretty impractical without a whole village's support. Primers, powder, projectiles in specific (even sloppy) spec, the works. I mean, even the Khyber Pass has a lot of people, a bunch of old ammunition, established infrastructure and expertise, primitive or crude though they may be.

I would think as an individual, it might be more feasible to start with a break-action 12 gauge and maybe some molds for shot and slugs. You can get a muzzle loading adapter for like $60 but you can also get metal shotshells. Still got to solve for primers though.

This is probably not what you want to hear, but a lot of things in firearms are dependent upon your ability to manufacture a lot of very specific, labor and time intensive things. Explosive material comes to mind. You'd be better off returning to Bronze or Iron Age technologies.

All you need to make this is some hand tools, wood, horn or bamboo (horn is hard to come by), fish bladders for glue, and deer backstrap.

Hell, you don't even need to make it a recurve, a self bow (longbow) with fish bladder glue and some linen backing would work wonders.

Hell, a flint or wheel lock would be more practical than anything cartridge based. Return to a brace of pistols and a sabre.

I don't really care what Stoner originally intended or what other people think of some features that were added for the "wrong reasons". Don't get me wrong, I like Stoner's engineering and I think he's brilliant.

Point is, the forward assist is a device to control something about the rifle and like any device, it can be misused. If you don't think it should be on the gun, good for you, I don't think it has any downsides if you have two braincells to rub together. I like it and I use it often mostly to chamber a round quietly when hunting or to ensure my bolt is in battery when gear snags on the charging handle when I'm traversing difficult terrain. If I was about to die and my rifle wasn't in battery for ANY REASON, I wouldn't care that I "could be making the problem worse by cramming the problem into the chamber harder". I wouldn't care, because it's either cram the problem harder and hope it works, or die. Choice is pretty clear to me.

I think cucksarda thinks too highly of himself and expects every other person on the planet to be dumber than him, and thus he cannot trust anyone else with a device like the forward assist that can be misused.

I'm thinking about a Glock 32, and I also want to reload the casings. I've hand loaded for 9mm and .223 before. I was told by a gunsmith friend that the gun will beat itself to death after 5000 rounds. Should I just change the spring after 5000 rounds? what about a heavier spring?
>> No. 110200 ID: b48b04
Do not reload for a Glocknade in calibers other than 9mm, at least not using the stock barrel, which in larger calibers is oval shaped with a few hundredths (not thousandths, hundredths) vertical slop to help feeding with ginormous .40 caliber hollowpoints and case head support ranging from mediocre to nonexistent. I've shot a range rental Glock 23 that left every fired case looking pregnant, and that was with factory ammo ammo, not reloads, and they were only 180gr FMJ practice ammo, nothing hot or outrageous. You didn't need a micrometer. You could see the bulged cases, each one with a little smile, with the Mark One Eyeball.

If you must do this, you would be well advised to find an aftermarket barrel that has a tighter chamber and better case head support than stock.

You may also want to look into an extra power recoil spring. I admit I don't know as much as I should about Glocks, but when S&W tried to make M&Ps in 357 SIG they could not make them run reliably without an extra power recoil spring to keep the slide from cycling faster than the magazine spring could push the top cartridge into place. There were also serious problems with frames getting battered. It's strange. From just strict comparison of momentum to momentum, a 357 SIG load with a 124gr bullet at 1300-ish feet per second ought to have less recoil and muzzle flip than a .40 caliber load with a 180 at 950. But the opposite is true. 357 SIG batters frames and beats the hell out of guns. SAAMI max allowable pressure for 357 SIG is 40K PSI, compared to 35K for .40 and 37,500 for 10mm. I find myself wondering if the higher pressures are contributing to extra slide velocity. Those pressures make me feel very much not warm and fuzzy about trying my luck with Glock case head support.

Also, be advised that 357 SIG, as a bottlenecked case, can't be reloaded with carbide dies. It needs steel dies and lube, like .223.
>> No. 110203 ID: bd5a80
Newer glocks have better case head support, so it's not as big of an issue anymore. Still, a new barrel does have advantages beyond a bit more support for longer lasting brass.

Get one that's threaded. Ideally, a suppressor. You might not even need a booster, light enough suppressors can SOMETIMES cycle basic bitch 9x19 so a much spicier round could run just fine. If you can't/don't want a can, a little brake would be great. It'll make the 357 sig even louder and more obnoxious, but it'll take all the snap out of the gun and it'll stop it from beating itself to death. You might have to find the right brake, some might take too much oomph out of it and not cycle hard enough, some might let the gun cycle too hard.
