ARs make the worst SBRs.
At least AKs have the big ass 7.62x39 cartridge and a foldable stock.
now before you come crying your ass off about the MK18 clone you spent 5000$ to buy, let me keep talking

since SBRfags are so obsessed with muh stopping power, why not use a 308 sbr? there aren't exactly any real downsides to using it over a 556 one.

And of course 556 suffers alot in shorter barrels
so for the AR to have any decent length to clear (28-30 inch overall length) you'd have to use a 9 inch barrel which isn't good ballisticwise.

Just look at pic related, the HK51, better cartridge, same or probably even less overall length, and even a retractable stock, the only thing it's missing is a suppressor.

I dont think so. The corvois one uses an ar15 trigger pack, they just used a geissele trigger in it. Geissele says they made their own prototype trigger pack, of which they have 25. Sadly the last update was a year ago and only that aig triggers "are still on the table".

worst small arm of the war wouldn’t be any kind of long gun, if we’re talking worst overall. It’d have to go to the nambu pistol or that little Russian revolver.

If we’re talking worst main rifle, I’d go with the lebel for its terribad capacity of 3 rounds. Or was that the berthier? I always get them confused.

Berthiers were all converted to 5 round clips by WW2 except a handful in private or museum ownership. The Lebel used an 8 round tube magazine.

It happens often, you'll be surprised. I think /ak/ scans at one point was working on the Arpeggio manga but dropped it because licensing. I know people still scanlate the latest chapters (as we are on volume 10 or something here in the states, but it has like 12+ last I checked), but that's just doing Russian roulette with legal people at that point.

Also, as g_z said earlier, some SFJT coming at you all soon, the QC was just finished and all that's left is any finalization then it'll be dumped here (probably by g_z, maybe by me, who knows).
>>
>>35516111
Yeah i know, im happy it gets serialized because more people will be able to enjoy it. It sucks like you said though because the scanlation groups will be a few volumes ahead so once they stop its just months of catchup instead of new material.

Alright /k/, need advice.

I have the chnace to buy a Finnish Mosin for $225. I realize thats a LOT more than what mosins were selling for 2 or 3 years ago, but its still cheap compared to what theyre going for today.

MY question is this; because its a Finnish mosin, is it any more valuable than a soviet one? Pic related, its the rifle in question.

>inb4 mosins are shit

Im buying one because I want a mosin. Thats it. Im not looking for the accuracy or performance of a modern BR or bolt action,

Finally got to wring this fucker out yesterday, felt fantastic. Pattern was surprisingly tight out to 20yd with the blue box Federal 00buck, only spread about 10in.

I'm getting a little cheek slap, how to avoid? I installed the riser so that a comfy cheek weld puts the sights in the right place. Idk if there's a technique tip or if I just need more practice.

You are a moron. You can't produce sof in significant enough numbers to replace all the bodies it takes to fight a war. Sof aren't meant to hold a line, and they are wasted running checkpoints. Hammer and scalpel doctrine is still a thing.
>>
>>35511817
Shiiiit, they left the body behind? Dude, can't be at that in Africa, especially nowadays with social media being so widely available. How realistic was the movie 'Black Hawk Down'? I watched that for the first time recently, and respect how they tried to get every body possible back to base. The scene where that one American body was hoisted up over the crowd of skinnies seemed all too realistic, and I hope it's true that they tried to get every man out of there, dead or alive. What was the kill count? 19 Americans, but over 1000 Somalis? They made the fuckers hurt, that's for sure. You don't fuck with the Rangers, I wonder what Terrence Popp thinks of the movie, and that operation in general. He's in the US Army and had Ranger training. Said that when you become a Ranger, you can't care whether you live or die, that just can't be an active thought in your mind. Pretty insane, he fought in 3 wars and was injured/nearly killed in 2 of them, and he loves to melt snowflakes, so I think he's an all-around badass and awesome character.

A friend of my uncle's friend died. The friend inherited his house and everything in it. He told my uncle we could go through it and keep whatever we found. I found a safe under a pile of junk and brought it home. Was able to pry it open in under an hour.

Inside the safe I found about $300 in old $2 bills, a bunch of antique coins, some vintage jewelry, a couple antique pocket knives, some vintage watches and two revolvers in their original boxes. A Colt 38 special Cobra, and a Colt 38 Special Official Police.

Is there anyway I can posses or sell them legally, or I MUST give them to my uncle's friend and get him to transfer ownership of them to me?

A followup question to anyone int he thread, doesn anyone know how the Vortex Strike Eagle holds up to the marginally more expensive Leupold Mod AR Firedot? Also OP those might be two options to start with. 1-6 variable zoom vs 1.5-4 variable zoom. Personally I'm leaning towards the Vortex because it has a wider range of distance, but Leupold quality definitely appeals to me a lot. Pic is my 18 in ar before I sold the Eotech to fix muh Firebird
>>
Thats a neat rifle you have Op, ive never shot one though.
Why not the optic in your op pic? A NF 1-4x is versatile and is a quality scope to go with your nice rifle.
4x is great at 100yards and the reticule will get you to 400 yards easy
>>
Pic is not mine. Im in cuckfornia still waiting to pick it up.
>>
>>35512763
I have the Leupold and like it. Clicks for .223 are very accurate with the ammo I shoot. My only concern would be if you shoot something like match 556 you may not be able to trust the turret markings they do. It's "calibrated" for 223 55gr.
