US M2 Carbine, an assault rifle, submachinegun or PDW?
The .30 Carbine metric dimensions are 7.62x33mm and that looks similar to the Sturmgewehr 44's 8mm Kurz' 7.92x33mm round, but the .30 Carbine has a thin case more akin to a pistol cartridge, not a fat bottlenecked assault rifle case like the 8mmK. The .30 Carbine round is more comparable to the .357 Magnum (9x33mmR) pistol cartridge in performance.
A standard .30 Carbine ball bullet weighs 110 grains (7.1 g); a complete loaded round weighs 195 grains (12.6 g) and has a muzzle velocity of 1,990 ft/s (610 m/s), giving it 967 ft·lbf (1,311 joules) of energy when fired from the M1 Carbine's 18" barrel. A .357 Magnum cartridge fired from an 18" rifle barrel, which can have a muzzle velocity range from about 1,718–2,092 ft/s (524–638 m/s) with energies at 720–1,215 ft·lbf (976–1,647 J) for a 110 gr (7.1 g) bullet at the low end and a 125 gr (8.1 g) bullet on the high end. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/.30_Carbine

I'd say its probably closest to a PDW just going by its cartridge. The cartride is not a bottlenecked rifle cartridge nor is it really a standard pistol cartridge. It seems more intermediate between an intermediate rifle round and a pistol round.

Its role though is more simple, its served pretty much as a bog standard carbine much like how a CAR-15 was or a modern M4 before it became more or less a standard long arm. A shorter rifle used by NCOs, special troops, vehicle crews, and rear line personnel.

There seems to be some overlap between the roles of carbines, PDWs, and submachine guns hence there is such confusion I think.

In 1963, a guy named Melvin M. Johnson made a conversion of the M1 carbine, where he necked-down the .30 Carbine to .22 (5.7mm) and called it the .22 Spitfire (also known as 5.7mm Johnson or MMJ 5.7mm Johnson) and sold it as a varmint gun. It was also advertised as a survival rifle for use in jungles or other remote areas, but the military was not interested.

I think the PDW term is recent, but the concept for having a compact but powerful defensive weapon that can be carried by troops behind the front line such as military engineers, drivers, artillery crews or signallers. These soldiers may be at risk of encountering the enemy, but rarely enough that a long-barrel weapon would be an unnecessary burden during their normal duties. Something between a submachine gun and a rifle.

It's good, especially for a $400 shotgun. Good, even parkerizing. The slide is a little rattley, but the action locks up right.

The only real negatives are that the trigger guard is some kind of plastic or polymer, and there doesn't seem to be a good way to attach a light without spending $300+ on a Surefire slide.

Carl Gustav m/42: A 20mm Recoilless Antitank Rifle https://youtu.be/lHQfQPSlSHg
The Swedish Pansarvärnsgevär fm/42 made by the Carl Gustav company was an interesting early hybrid antitank weapon - a recoilless rifle firing solid armor-piercing projectiles. It used a 20x180mm case, propelling the 108g (1650gr) bullet at 950 m/s (3150 fps). This was capable of perforating 40mm of perpendicular armor plate at 100m (a high explosive projectile was also made). This was on the high end of armor penetration for anti-tank rifles, and the m/42 was able to do this with a weapon weighing just 11.7kg (25 lb) - less than a quarter of a comparable 20mm conventional rifle.

This was possible because of its recoilless design - upon firing, the rear end of the cartridge case would blow out and vent out the back of the weapon, instead of being firmly sealed like a conventional rifle. This created a counter balancing recoil impulse which prevented the gun and shooter from having to absorb the full recoil energy produced by a heavy bullet launching off at high velocity. The tradeoff was that much of the potential energy of firing was wasted venting out the back instead of pushing the bullet forward, which is why the cartridge case was so oversized.

About a thousand of the guns were made by the end of World War 2, at which time even it had been made quite thoroughly obsolete by the rapidly increasing thickness of tank armor. It would, however, be the stepping-stone to the m/48 Carl Gustav 84mm recoilless rifle, which used a shaped charge warhead to perforate armor with a stream of molten melt instead of relying on velocity of a hardened projectile.

So, I recently went to visit the Waterloo Memorial 1815 museum. Thought I'd post some pics.

The Waterloo 1815 museum was recently expanded, and since the entire area surrounding the battlefield is considered a "protected" site, they chose to build the entire museum underground. Which is kinda neat.

Interesting, according to this http://hybris.cms.henkel.com/medias/sys_master/root/h40/h15/9112834539550.pdf it should have been fine to use on aluminum (despite the basic pH of 10.6)
If you have any bits of aluminum left from the project and are still curious, you might try giving them a test in the cleaner, with and without the cleaner/degreaser.
>> No. 103804 ID: 19518e
The cleaner in there was diluted, and possibly had contaminants from the day shift that could have tainted the part. It could have been the heating function, but it doesn't get anywhere boiling...

Either way I'm not too concerned, mostly curious.
>> No. 103843 ID: 3a8aee
you could always make a test piece (a machined block or something with a similar surface finish to the part that changed colour) and leave it the cleaner extra long to see what happens. Consider it a "worst case scenario" test or do it just for giggles.

Ah, didn't see the picture before I posted. Yeah, that's not nearly as bad as I thought. I was expecting something more along the lines of what happens when cheap dyes are used to color aluminum, that then proceed to leach out from bad sealing or break down under UV light. Pic related. Which was confusing the hell out of me because your piece wasn't dyed.

I think your contaminants theory is likely correct, as anodizing is great at picking that sort of thing up.

First block is control, second is 1 hour in left-over contaminated day shift natural blue cleaner (unknown concentration), third is 1 hour in fresh 10% natural blue, last is 1 hour in tap water.

I think it might be the water. The tap water at work isn't fit for drinking, we have water coolers and bottled water for drinking, it usually smells and I don't know what's in it exactly. Could sulfur stain aluminum? There is sometimes a rotten egg smell from the tap water.

Monday I might use bottled water and run another block one more hour. All other variables were kept pretty steady, same temp on the machine, blocks were in the same spot too.

I felt insulted when their hits at 100m seem like some unobtainable achievement. I mean, I guess the RMR on my Roland could be considered cheating, but it really isn't that big of a deal to get hits on steel at 100m, with some practice and understanding of your sight picture at that distance of course.

I was about to close the video when I saw Rob Pincus, I closed it when I saw "hydrostatic shock".

If SVI can make a 100% barstock billet 1911 or 2011 for less money than this with the same accuracy guarantee, wtf are they doing?

Yes, for $7500 you could have a grade 9 titanium 1911 made (with microwelded tool steel rails to eliminate galling) that generally will shoot .5" groups or better with AET rifling.

Or hell, you could start a Korth collection, or two SVIs, or multiple forged in the halls of Mount Doom custom 1911s that I promise you have better attention to detail and craftsmanship than this does.

Btw, Les Baers are rather well priced (bit above some of the better production guns like the Colt Rail Gun, Springfield TRP, Dan Wesson Valor).
>> No. 103741 ID: 19518e
All those guns you mentioned are things that are already proven, all the plans and tooling are already done, to quote the post you linked to
"...riding a hundred year wave of Browning's legacy. 1911s are understood in every way"

All those manufacturers just have to make what is already made and do it with attention to detail and closer fits. It's like doing a cover of a song when everybody and their mothers have the music sheets and the instruments, SVI/les baer/everygucci1911brand just comes in, picks up the guitars and microphone, and plays the same old song.

The accuracy ends up being the same, but FK has to write a new song from scratch, that's the actually complicated and expensive part.

Yes their marketing is annoying as hell and going "wow we're amazing hitting stuff 100 yards nevah been dun befoh muh hydroquantumshox see we can use buzzwords too".
>> No. 103742 ID: 1989a8
Doesn't hydrostatic shock become relevant when the projectile goes above 2000 fps? FK only has 2000 fps at the muzzle though. On the other hand, it dropped an elk without vertebra damage which is very impressive if it wasn't staged.
>> No. 103743 ID: 19518e
I'm no terminal ballistician, but from what I understand "hydrostatic shock" is damage to some types of tissues and/or organs from a large enough temporary cavity caused by a projectile. The size of the temporary cavity is related to the projectile's weight, diameter, speed, upset (tumbling), expansion or fragmentation. This temporary cavity, if large and violent enough, can increase the trauma and physiological shock to the target beyond the permanent cavity. I remember reading theories of nervous system damage from this temporary cavity effect, but I can't say I know if it was speculation or confirmed by legitimate scientific process. I do imagine, all else being equal, a larger temporary cavity would probably hurt more but pain is an extremely unreliable factor in incapacitation of a creature at best.

12 gauge slugs are very large, heavy, made of soft lead, and from what I know, can create very large temporary cavities regardless of the relatively slow velocity (well under 2000ft/s) of the projectile. Conversely, the 223 with a proper bullet can also impart devastating damage beyond what one would expect from a small projectile.

In the case of most handguns, there is neither weight or speed sufficient to do anything but look impressive in a gel test. Gel and high-speed cameras can make basically anything look like the new wonderbullet is like a high explosive autocannon round. From Fackler's reports, yes the general speed required to have enough energy to make temporary cavity matter is around 2000ft/s, but bullet weight and construction (expansion, tumbling, fragmentation) are important factors in this rule of thumb.

Hunters have been taking large game with smaller calibers for a long time, with a bullet that can go deep enough, I would imagine that countless medium-to-large animals have been taken with lever actions in modest chamberings assuming shot placement was good. Hunting is often anecdotal and very case-by-case, the animal's reaction to being shot can never really be predicted with perfect accuracy. Maybe they shot a dozen game before landing on the one elk that just gave up after getting a hole poked in it. There's a video of some guys shooting a small doe with a 50BMG and it taking a football-sized scoop right out the exit side, and the doe still ran for a few seconds. There's plenty of videos of hunters sack-of-potatoes-drop on larger animals with a whole lot less than the 50BMG, like 357 Magnums.

The 7.5 round is basically a 30 carbine round (as if shot from a long barrel) from a pistol barrel. Whatever you can kill with an M1 carbine, you could do with the 7.5 from the pistol.
>> No. 103747 ID: 1989a8
I'm just saying that an aproximately 100 grain bullet goes into the target at supersonic speeds so their claims of effective hydrostatic damage may not be a just marketing meme. No amout of accurate or meme marketing claims justifies that fucking price tho. Would be interesting to see if they make any actual military AP ammo for it and how will it look if they do.
