I've used that on a P30L and it too some getting used to. Theoretically, it has some advantages, but personally I still prefer the conventional thumb mag release.
But I don't feel it's a deal breaker in choosing a gun.

I'm a big fan of the HK VP9. I shoot it in 3-gun competition and it fucking rocks.

The magazine release on the VP works great. It's really the same motion as a push button, just a little more downward. The older HK guns (USP and P2000) have a rocker that's the whole width of the trigger guard. I had an issue where the meat on my middle finger would get pinched when inserting a magazine. The VP mag catch is only the outside, and the trigger guard protects your middle finger meats.

Pictured is some airshit, but it clearly shows how the magazine catch is designed.

The more I look at it the more sense it makes to me.
What abou Sig P250? I know the company is kinda in hot water now with P320 but how is the older design. Anybody tried it, maybe carried it. If so, did you go with .357 Sig?
>> No. 105571 ID: f2172d

The P250 feels great in the hand, but has a very long DAO trigger pull. If you like it then it's great, but if you don't, pass. Aside from drop safety issues, the P320 is superior in every way.

Sig .357 is a slowly dying cartridge, IMO, but that's just a rough observation on my end.
>> No. 105572 ID: c3b8cf
>the P320 is superior in every way
clarification, the trigger on the P320 is superior to the P250 in every way, aside from if the P320 is dropped and it lands in the wrong position and discharges. yeesh.

So I've been shopping around for a CZ pistol for a while now, but some of the finer points escape me between a few of the models. There's the Shadow, but it's different than the SP01 Shadow, both are different compared to the Shadowline, and so on. There's the Shadow Tac II, then stuff like the 75 Tactical Sport, and then Czechmate, so what the hell is this clusterfuck about? Their website isn't much help being slow, messy, disorganized, and not exactly easy to compare model to model.

I'm particularly interested in the Shadow and Shadow 2 pistols, and I am planning on installing an SAO flat trigger into whatever CZ pistol ends up being chosen. It'll be for range pew pew so practicality isn't exactly high on the list and I have no trouble with racking in-frame CZ slides. I would appreciate any info on these things, especially shit that isn't exactly obvious or often covered in reviews/product descriptions.

You referring to only calipers?

Because my job gave me a Mitutoyo 8" dial caliper, and I own the 8" digimatic seen earlier in the thread.

I used both the dial and digital Mitutoyo calipers daily for a while before going back to all digital, I just don't see the appeal of the dial calipers. They are also more sensitive to dust, and the "feeling" from trying to measure things with consistent pressure is much harder with the rack and pinion physical dial than a smooth digital.

Dial just doesn't feel a nice, doesn't read as quick, and doesn't really do any easy incremental measuring (if that's what you meant by comparative measurement). With no downside with digital, I can't see any reason to use a dial.

Keep in mind I'm comparing dial calipers to the Mitutoyo Digimatic and not other digital calipers, this is a very important point as I have not liked many other digital calipers.
>> No. 105566 ID: 1519ac
Yes, I was referring to just calipers, and yes, I meant incremental. Really it's just a preference thing, I like the feel of nice dials WAY better than any digitals I've ever used, including mitutoyos. I've also had digitals get coolant on them and start fucking up before (may have been cheap/counterfeit, I don't remember). Mostly I think I have a subconscious bias where anything electronic = cheap.
>> No. 105569 ID: 19518e
Digital calipers are offered in coolant-proof variants, but I stuck with the regular digimatic as I liked the buttons and feeling of it better. I find it's much easier to keep the calipers out of coolant rather than keep dials out of ambient dust and small airborne debris.

Measuring tools are obviously subjective, and I have known amazing machinists that used tools I didn't like and obviously made good parts, so it's yet another proof of the million ways to skin cats in the manufacturing industry.

As something of an aside, you see this issue in lockpicking, too.

Many, many places have laws on the books that make carrying lock picking tools illegal (often *very* illegal) if you're not licensed or actually on a job.

And most lock-picking tools are very mundane items.

In other words, yes, usage defines the category.

Carrying a screwdriver? Pretty normal. It's a screwdriver.

Using the screwdriver to bypass a lock to gain entry to a building not your own? Felony possession of lock picking tools.

Using a screwdriver to bypass a lock, stab the owner of the dwelling, and rape their dog? Well now you're in possession of a deadly weapon AND lockpicking tools. Same item, two charges. Also, you're a sick furry bastard.

Always been a fan of umbrellas, myself. They're way more multifunctional than they look, because people are so used to only seeing them used for one or two purposes. It's still a stick. Also makes you real popular with women when you're the only guy to have the foresight to have one. Remember to get one bigger than you need...

Bit of a bitch to carry due to size/weight, but there's something to be said of the old D-cell Maglite flashlights (thinking back on it, why the fuck didn't Maglite get involved with "COPS"? It was de facto advertising in the 1990s...). Shit flashlights, but my god you wouldn't want to be hit by one of the fuckers. And even though they were aluminum, they were pretty thick and well made and could take a beating.
>> No. 99400 ID: f87148

Aftermarket LEDs and microcontrollers can greatly improve the utility of otherwise obsolete flashlights such as these. I retrofitted one of those big old GI angle head jobs and was rewarded with a flashlight which, while still heavy as fuck, will provide more than adequate light for like two fucking weeks straight, and which is reasonably water-resistant -- all for, like, thirty rupees. I was pleased enough with the results that I plan on doing the same to one of the smaller versions sometime soon.
>> No. 105541 ID: 5af259

I bought a set of brass knuckles from therealbrassknuckles.com. From what I understand they're cast in PA so they aren't sold with novelty bullshit like belt buckle pegs. Someday I intend to use it with some green sand casting to make aluminum ones; so far my casting experiments are lacking, mostly because my foundry is improvised bullshit.

I've experimented with laser cutting acrylic ones and laminating layers. After doing some very scientific hitting-concrete-with-gloves in my opinion they shatter too easily. I'm sure there are other plastics that would work better.

If you feel like fabricobbling your own, here's a handy sizing chart you can steal: http://www.defiantcraft.com/sizing.pdf
The PDF preserves vector objects so you can import for laser cutting if that's your jam.

Okay I know it was probably stupid of me to trade an AK for this but I really needed a smaller carry gun.

I miss my AK but on the bright side, this little Sig came with 3 mags (one with the extended pinky) and 2 holsters (one IWB and one OWB).

Anyone got some interesting trade stories? Ones where you came out on top and got away with a steal? Ones where you got ripped off and are embarrassed about it?

I was there for there for VMworld EU on their national holiday thing (the catalonian one, not the spanish one). Was kinda unexpected to suddenly have 350000 people in the streets with separatist flags. Of course the "cross" their street protest/party was basically centered on the place we had to go for a party of our own. That was interesting but everyone was extremely civil.

Here in Belgistan, there would've been some troublemakers out to exploit the situation. There, no such thing as far as I could tell. Only saw two guys that I could identify as Antifa due to some symbols on T-shirts.

The funny bits:
1) They seem to think the EU will support their independence since there were EU flags in the crowd. Oh you poor naive souls.

I was supposed to shoot a full auto FAL (belgian receiver, Israeli LAR kit) this weekend. Alas, it ended up becoming a bolt action .308. Gun failed to cycle, the bolt would come back about half an inch after firing. Fiddled with the gas system to no avail. My friend will need to take it somewhere to get it fixed, most likely.

On the other hand, I did get to try out a Colt Anaconda and a S&W 629 V-comp Performance Center side by side. The compensator and hogue grips made the 629 very easy to shoot. The Colt was a touch smoother all around, but the grips didn't help with the recoil.

>> No. 105397 ID: c3b8cf

He said he had properly stripped and lubed it, but I dunno. It was only his second time taking it out. As far as I know the plug was open but I don't know how much he was able to adjust the gas port. I do recall the port was sticky.

I was also there the first time he took the gun out. It has fired exactly one mag in full auto and hasn't worked since. This guy is working towards the battle rifle trifecta. He has a f/a HK91, the FAL, and a M14 on transfer.

Well percentually, that tax stamp is a significant increase when you consider the cost of the shotgun/AOW itself?

But I'm a eurotard. My country doesn't even have the concept of what an SBS is. So that's no problem. The problem is getting a suitable shotgun and then cutting it down legally. After having a gunsmith cut it down, it needs to be re-proofed and registered in its new length. This in work hours and paperwork costs more than the shotgun itself.

As a result, I abandoned that idea & am trying to import a Benelli M3 Tactical instead.
>> No. 105543 ID: f0fb5d
They used to have one that replaced the existing stock with one that has a cutout where it did mount a light on the slide itself.

Not sure why they discontinued it but I have one on my 590A1. I guess if I got a Shockwave I could switch the pumps but I'd lose the strap.

I've decided it's time to build a precision rifle and start building up a better technical understand of long range shooting. I'm working my way through TiborasaurusRex's series if anyone else is interested.

In my part of the country, there are no ranges over 300 yards in any reasonable driving distance, but I'd still like to invest long term for if/when I move for a rifle 1-2 MOA at 600+ yards. I don't (currently) rifle hunt, so this is purely a long range target project. I'm relatively new to the precision field so I'd like some sanity check on my choices. Budget is flexible here but I'd like to stay in the neighborhood of $750-1000.

Caliber: .308 / 7.62x51
It seems to have acceptable BC and kinetic energy at 1000 yards. Frankly I'm most interested in ammo availability. I don't reload yet so being able to find match grade locally is a good bonus. If anyone has a preferred match brand, I'd like to hear it.

Rifle: Savage Model 10T
I've really liked the AccuTrigger and seems a popular base for "budget" long range builds. The version with detachable magazines is $100 more but does not seem particularly important to me. A threaded barrel would be more interesting if I had access to private land to shoot with a suppressor, but since I can only shoot at public ranges I'm using earpro anyways.

Rifle (alt): Ruger American
The initial reviews seem positive and it's $100 cheaper than the Savage. Played with one at the fun store and the trigger felt better than expected (can be adjusted down to 2.5# even). Budget isn't that tight so if the Savage is generally better, so be it.

>Just out of curiosity, at what distance do you generally shoot your pistols?

Using an A4/letter format target:
For relatively fast paced fire, generally around 15m.

Using the normal pistol competition target:
Pretty much exclusively 25m, slow fire.

Pic is a 25m pistol target with 100 rounds through it from an X-Five AL SO shot two handed. But it's from better days when I was a pistol junkie. It's amazing how quickly your skills disappear when you stop regularly practicing. My recent focus on rifles has really thrown a wrench in the works when it comes to my pistol skills. I doubt I'd be able to do this kind of shooting now except if I had a REALLY good day.

Idle hands are the tool of the devil...

Range is close this week & next.
My shotgun is still not delivered.

And so the mind drifts...
I want a trainer precision rifle for 50m-100m distances to complement my AI AT. Now, if I had lived in the US, I'd probably have ordered something crazy like a lefty Stiller 2500XR action, Lilja/Krieger barrel and a JAE700 chassis. Just because. That'd have cost me as much as my fucking AI AT.

Good thing (and sadly) these things are not readily on order inna Eurolandia.

So I tried to figure out what was the best way to build something worthwhile.

I actually started off with the idea of a lefty Sako Quad, because Manners makes stocks for that. But I was on the fence due to the accuracy being just shy of what I expected which is probably in part due to the quick change barrel system. But, fear not, Sako also makes the FinnFire II which is the same action without the quick change barrel system. Except both have just been discontinued in left handed variants & none are currently in the dealer network for me to snap up.

So, back to the drawing board. After lots of looking around, I found the Anschutz 64L MPR. Basically a match rifle repeater. But again, the L version has been discontinued.

Or rather, closed.

Anyhow. Anschutz North America has partnered with Manners in the past to make tactical rimfire trainers with the 1416, but it's right handed only stocks for now. I wonder if I can convince Manners to make a mirror image.
