There's been some reports of feeding issues and getting worse & worse.
Considering it's a new design, I hope they stand behind their product and get it fixed for the people with issues.

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.

Speaking of milling one, ever see the blueprint for a Picatinny rail? I never did figure out why they did the datum the way they did, but it pissed me right off when I was considering making one.
>> No. 106819 ID: 19518e
Milled everything. It's a little funky and welded up because I didn't have much material to work with, so it was odd bits of cut-off and stuff.

>I hope all tolerances etc are correct. :)
Made sure to have the important dimensions and locations done in one operation and have it interface with a slot/groove fit that would locate the subsequent parts so it would weld on just about as straight as could be.

They use the box dimension -C- to locate the position of the 45 degree cuts. It's the most elegant way (blueprint-wise) to ensure the 45 degree cuts are even in size and symmetry and location relative to the rest of the features.

It's not super straightforward at first glance, but you can start by drawing the box (0.748 by 0.108) and use the corners to start your 45 degree lines and the rest of the dimensions pretty much just fall into place.

I used a double angle cutter from Ebay, just an HSS thing like this one.

Engraved "action" and "muzzle" on the rings to identify them as the barrel has a slight taper. To match it, the rings had to be fit (cutter comp) and labeled so they didn't get mixed up.

Everything was hit with some scotch-brite deburring and stuff, but I'm probably going to sandblast it and throw it into the "to get anodized" pile at work.

556 doggos were sacrificed to the murder /k/ube for this holy relic of a weapon.

26 U.S. Code § 5845

>The term “rifle” means a weapon designed or redesigned, made or remade, and intended to be fired from the shoulder and designed or redesigned and made or remade to use the energy of the explosive in a fixed cartridge to fire only a single projectile through a rifled bore for each single pull of the trigger,

>The term “machinegun” means any weapon which shoots, is designed to shoot, or can be readily restored to shoot, automatically more than one shot, without manual reloading, by a single function of the trigger.

Just because release triggers have been around doesn't mean anyone's thought of this before.
>> No. 106797 ID: e809d9
Just like a Mossberg Shockwave has always been theoretically legal but until 2010 nobody thought about the firearm loophole and even then everyone was afraid of actually doing it without registering it as an AOW until Mossberg stepped up and put their money where their month is.
>> No. 106798 ID: b00a13
I have no idea. The thought was that it might somehow throw the gun into the legal category of "firearm". I don't understand it.

That does mean that ether these shotguns with release triggers have been misclassified by the ATF for decades (not out of the realm of possibility, but now raises into question the legality of those sales seeing as the 4473 would have been submitted wrong) OR this has nothing to do with a release trigger. I think this potentially could have some unsavory legal ramifications if it is release trigger related.

Also, Franklin Armory already made a release trigger for AR15's back in 2015 called the RFS

There's nothing illegal about registering a Mossberg cruiser as a shotgun instead of a pistol grip firearm, all it does is permanently fix the minimum barrel length at 18 inches.

I still think the Binary trigger is key; but if a release trigger alone is all it takes then I wonder when I'll be able to buy one of these from my local gunshop.

There's a machine gun thread a while ago but I felt like I should start a specific thread for firearms fed by belts.

Mostly because of this MG34 that followed me home.

Since this really is the first rifle of this type that I've had to play with, I'm a little out of my element. This is a TNW semi-auto only 7.92x57 and I wouldn't mind learning everything I can about this particular piece.

Yeah, the way the MG-34 and 42 can quickly remove their barrels were great advantages to other machine-guns like the Browning M1919, although certain light machine-guns like the Bren Gun had mechanisms for quickly swapping out their barrels.

  MG-34: The Universal Machine Gun Concept https://youtu.be/E-KgQ-OZJZ8
The MG34 was the first German implementation of the universal machine gun concept - and really the first such fielded by any army. The idea was to have a single weapon which could be used as a light machine gun, heavy machine gun, vehicle gun, fortification gun, and antiaircraft gun. The MG34 was designed to be light enough for use as an LMG, to have a high enough rate of fire to serve as an antiaircraft gun, to be compact and flexible enough for use in vehicles and fortifications, and to be mounted on a complex and advanced tripod for use as a heavy machine gun. Mechanically, the MG34 is a recoil operated gun using a rotating bolt for locking. It is chambered for 8mm Mauser, and feeds from 50-round belt segments with a clever and unique quick-change barrel mechanism. The early versions were fitted with adjustable rate reducers in the grips allowing firing from 400 to 900 rounds per minute, and also had an option for a top cover which would fit a 75-round double drum magazine. Both of these features were rather quickly discarded, however,r in the interest of more efficient production. However, the gun fulfilled its universal role remarkably well. The MG34 was considered a state secret when first developed, and despite entering production in 1936 it would not be formally adopted until 1939 - by which time 50,000 or so had already been manufactured. It would comprise about 47% of the machine guns in German service when the Wehrmacht invaded Poland, but would be fully standardized by March of 1941. It was replaced by the MG42 later in the war, as that weapon was both faster and cheaper to produce and also required substantially less of the high-grade steel alloys that Germany had limited supplies of. However, it would continue to be produced through the war, particularly for vehicle mounts.

Funnily enough, my dealer picked up a MG34 parts kit this week. The barrel is in surprisingly good shape, waffenamt and everything. He's debating whether to get a semi-receiver from TNW and build, or just flip the kit alone.

Hello all.

I'm trying to find a new handguard for my AR. I'm not terribly picky but do specifically want a few features:
Free Float
Cannot be used as a cheesegrater.

I'm looking at pulling the trigger next week or so on the pictured Yankee Hill but would like other recommendations.

Woah, I am loving that flat top mount free float setup, I like that setup because you don't have to buy a raiser for your red dot sight.

I see their gen 2 and 3 doesn't have the flat top mount.

Extra bonus for triangle tube
>> No. 106749 ID: 181cef
The flat top mount should be compatible, mine's a gen 2, but they've got top mounts for gen 3 as well.

>> No. 106750 ID: 988090
So that top rail piece is an add-on? So that top rail can go on any size just have to pick the right length, that's pretty cool
>> No. 106751 ID: 181cef
Yep, it attaches to the flat top of the upper receiver like the Vltor CASV, and attaches to the hand guard via screws and plates inside the hand guard. Needless to say it's easier to add the top rail when the hand guard is not attached to the rifle.
>> No. 106770 ID: 6ca38e
Love my BCM KMR handguard on my PBEAR MkII. Lightweight, not too thick, a good fit for my hands. They also have the Mlok MCMR now. Either should come in under your budget. Just I would suggest if you go with the KMR that you get the aluminum "Alpha" version rather than the magnesium alloy version. It's fine if you're not gonna put anything load bearing on it, but keymod is already weaker than mlok, no need to exacerbate the issue. (I know one OPERATOR who managed to rip off his vfg at the range with an original KMR)

7.92x33mm FAL Modification at GunLab
This is Pete’s , a friend of Gun Lab, version of a 7.92×33 rifle. His solution was to put in a new ejector block of his design with a spring loaded ejector. Then remove 0.900″ from the magazine to fit the 7.92×33 round.
With the last post we made on the 7.92×33 FN-FAL we showed a FAL that had a new ejector block and magazine made to allow the rifle to shoot 7.92×33. This post will show a different approach to reach the same conclusion, shooting 7.92×33. This series of photographs comes from another friend of Gun Lab and how he converted his rifle to use MP-44 magazines. This version the owner cut down the receiver by 0.900 and welded support plates to enlarge the magazine housing. http://www.thefirearmblog.com/blog/2015/08/11/7-92x33mm-fal-modification-at-gunlab/

The first prototype of what was then the FN Universal Carbine, but that would become the FN FAL (Light Automatic Rifle), was not chambered for the familiar 7.62×51 NATO, nor its competitor round the .280 British, but in the German 7.92x33mm Kurzpatrone round developed in 1942 for the MKb. 42(H) (the predecessor of the famous Sturmgewehr).
- The FN “Universal Carbine”, prototype No. 1. This was the only rifle in the FAL family chambered at the factory for 7.92x33mm Kurz. Image source: gunlab.net
