What is the difference in slapping a bolt release on an AR and pressing the slide release on a pistol?
Why do people sperg immensely when someone uses the slide lock to send the slide home on a fresh mag?

I think you're 100% right.
>wearable parts
I'm sorry, what the fuck is wearing when you're hitting the slide release? The slidestop? It probably takes wear from the gun locking open the most so how the fuck would releasing the slide with the release translate to accelerated wear over just slingshotting the slide? What the fuck changes in this equation, and how the fuck is it even appreciable?
Moreover, how did you come to the conclusion that this is even an argument that anyone should even consider?

I mean you might as well argue for never doing dryfire drills of any kind because there's some fucking molecules that wear away every time you do it. You could have called it gay for all your argument fucking mattered, you fucking stooge.
Why do people even slap their ARs? To me it's faster just to press it as I move my off hand back up to the foregrip. Do people do it just to look tacticool?
Probably comes from people with butterfingers who are allergic to slide mounted safeties.
My gun club has a rental 1911 race gun and the slide catch doesn‘t always engage on an empty mag.

I was told this was because of wear caused by using the slide release.

Kek, Russins always say they have rear facing radars but it only contains a parachute.

How embarassing. They really should've bought Chinese.

I know right? It's as if they're working on prototypes and not on a production assembly line. They really should've bought Chinese.
Gorbachevs role in ending the evil empire shall not be understated but without Yeltsin pushing for russia to abandon the Soviet Union, Gorbachev would probably have gone through with the the plan to "preserve the Soviet Union as a renewed federation of independent republics" or whatever vague wording he used in his little referendum.
In the end it was Yeltsin who pulled the plug when he declared russia independent but Gorbachevs effort to tone down the draconian fascism the russians used to rule their subjects is what made it possible in the first place.
The Russian military has 68 Su-35 as of November of this year, this a/c has been in production since 2007 for the SU-35 but if you want to get really into it 1987 for the SU-27M. This plane only costs 40 million~ USD to make, russia has only 68 after 10-30 years of production. (68 does include Su-27M too)

Compare to the US F-22 being produced from 1996-2011, costs about 150 million~. The USAF has 184 of them.

The Russian Su-57 costs 50 million USD (T-50 prices so this number is likely higher for Su-57)

The SU-57 costs significantly more than the Su-35, and will likely have a higher upkeep as well. The Russia Air Force simply cannot afford to have as many Su-57s as the they have Su-35s (While maintaining both).

The Su-57 is more of a "We can do it too" from the Russians, I doubt we'll ever see them producing more than a dozen or so before the next generation of stealth fighters appear. And the Su-57s already rolling out of the gate with obsolete tech and design anyways.

It's a giant paper weight.

C.Walker from SD, I have your big box of goodies shipping on Saturday! Just waiting on one more thing to come in. You're getting all of my milsurp collection as I am moving and have no plans on keeping it. It's in all sizes. A few medium, several large and a nice L-XL Austrian parka, unissued that didn't fit me on the sleeves (I'm a tallfag). I guarantee you'll find a few items that fit! Give anything that doesn't to another /k/ommando in need. You're also getting books, patches, random/weird shit and some Spook gear that my friend gave me who is an agent/does busts for the D.E.A. I never once used any of it but it should run get with your AR stuff.

I've been on /k/ since '10 but you're my first Se/k/ret Santa. I'm glad I could spoil you. As I said, just waiting on one more thing to arrive!


Hahaha, sorry! Maybe next year, my DEAbro is always giving me stuff. My target specifically asked for weird stuff, so I'm hoping this is right up his ally.
Hate to leave you hanging, but no happy ending there. I'll still send you a present after Christmas because you deserve it. Just need more money first.

No worries, I'm not the ungrateful sort. I'm just pleased you're sending anything, and it'll make my Christmas that much better knowing a /k/ommando was willing to send me a gift out of the kindness of their heart.


Nick F of Ohio, most of your shit shipped, but some is being slow. I'll have Creep send you tracking numbers in case anything is late.
No way, you're my SS. Ha! it's the guy who sang TAKYON with you at nuggetfest

I was reading something on here a while ago where folks were talking about gun dreams and things they meant, like not feeling you're well practiced and such.

Well, I've been having some dreams about my weapons failing lately. Last night, I dreamnt that a mountain lion was about to attack me or a family member or something, its hazy. Anyways, I grab the old 20 gauge I got as a kid and take aim.

Alrighty, I am curious about what Milsurp gun is the absolute cheapest. So far the Spanish Mauser has that claim. Lets see if there is anything cheaper.
The leather gloves are for holding the barrel or receiver tang while using a heat gun with the other hand. It gets extremely hot rubber gloves won't help with that.
Before I do a next post, would it be better to just pastebin this process and post it?
Get out a shitty pot you no longer care about. Maybe you burnt the fuck outta it one day, maybe you chipped up the ceramics on it (Or children doing the latest meme on the internet did). In long story short, get that water up to boiling, this'll get all the shit outta the corners that you couldn't get to before. Wrap a bit of baling wire, or whatever you have, taking care not to scratch your parts. It'll make it easier to not have to fish out your parts, especially if it's a smaller one and you don't want to have to go fishing out the damn things using a potato masher. Boil parts one by one, all of those except your trigger group, which is better left soaking in a fuckton of wd40. Shit works surprisingly well. Wipe down afterwards, it'll be hot, and let the water evaporate, anything else on it you can just wipe it off with more rags. Gun oil afterwards, you'll need to use your cleaning rod to stuff the rags in, that's okay, as long as it gets out. Do not do for trigger group because that is complicated [at least, in comparison to an AR trigger group.]. Once this is done, you're probably worried about your sticky firing pin, right? Well don't worry senpai, what you're gonna do is mix a fair bit of your hoppes #9 and a lot of your lubricating oil into a ziploc baggy, then drop your bolt only in it, close tightly, leaving some air in it, then stick it in another bag without air, so as tight as possible, then get shaking that motherfucker hard. Like, as in, keep on shaking it like you're coming off nofap. Let that shit sit overnight, then fuckin shake it more when you wake up. If you're gutsy, or stupid like I am, you can take your pot, heat it back up with a fair bit of water in it, then dunk the bag in until the oil gets really warm, it'll help dissolve it when you shake it. BE CAREFUL TO NOT GET HOT OIL EVERYWHERE. Seriously, some thick gloves will help you greatly. Once clean to satisfaction, lube all moving parts. [Cont.]
Alright, so now you're reassembling after degreasing your external parts, first comes getting the important shit back together. Get your gas port and retaining spring and the retainer, get that thing put back together before you forget. Then your gas tube piston extender and your extender spring, you'll find the notch for your gas piston deallywopper to hold it in, then slip gas piston in to gas tube, carefully lower it in, then lower latch in, you'll have it in the stock already by this point, flip rifle over, lean against a bench with a cloth. At an angle. Place magazine in, you'll need it under the catch, not too hard. Next part is. You'll have to take your trigger assembly, set it in against it, it'll have a way it wants to go in, go with it, ensure your safety is on, then you'll have to use your skellington bodyweight against it to get it back in, you'll hear it click once it has, double check you got magazine in. DOUBLE CHECK DO NOT FORGET LIKE I DID AND HAVE TO PULL IT OUT AGAIN. Alright, you heard it pop in and now it's snug in the receiver again, alright, well done. Get bolt, line up with notch in bolt carrier, set it into the receiver, slide it forward, you'll get it right and it won't drop forward anymore. don't worry, depress the little tab you feel at where it stops, then slide it the rest of the way forwards. After that, you put recoil spring in, twisty end first, then slide dust cover back on, tensioning spring, then push the cover latch in from its ninety degree until it's flush with the rest of the receiver and rotate. Make sure you've given a nice run over of an oily rag. Or if you have it, a very thin layer of the wateryish cosmoline, shit is good at providing a good layer of protection if you can deal with the smell. There you go, thing's clean. You aught to know how to run patches down your bore. Anyways, that's all there is to it. Some surp easier, some worse.

After just over two years in Syria, Vladimir Putin announced yesterday that the Russians had completed their mission in Syria, having wiped out ISIS and enabled the Syrian Arab Army to successfully provide security across the country, and would begin their withdrawal.

Meanwhile, the U.S. remains entrenched in Afghanistan for 17 years, with little to no progress being made, and are sending more and more troops in the hopes of something changing.

What has taken 17 years for America to attempt has been completed by the Russians after just over 2. How is it that such an inefficient army composed of vatniks is somehow able to make more progress than the power of the United States and most of Europe?

Is Russia much stronger than we assumed, or are they just better at COIN? Does the difference between Syria and Afghanistan have something to do with it? What do you think, /k/?

They went in with a government that already existed and improved it. Russia didn't win Syria for Assad, when the rebels failed to take Damascus it sealed that Assad would stay. Russia greatly improved the time it took for Assad to retake the country. What the SAA lacked when Russia entered the conflict more then anything was troops capable of launching assaults. The best units of the SAA were tied up. Russia took pressure off them with its air campaign while also training future Syrian soldiers. They trained over 1000 Syrian Marines and 10,000 soldiers for the 5th Corps.
When you look at SAA assaults prior to Russia entering it's always the same troops. Russia training and equipping more soldiers let the SAA really begin large territorial gains.
When it comes to COIN America generally trying to make a government from scratch. No one is motivated to fight for that government and their troops show it. Syria isn't that way, almost all the Alwates, Christians, Shia and Druze see Assad as essential to them not being killed by "moderate" islamists. Even most the urban Sunnis see Assad as essential.
Imagine Iraq's military didn't undergo the de baathification process. That's what Russia was working with in Syria.

To put in cliche terms, ever heard the saying "an ounce of prevention beats a pound of cure". Well Russia in Syria is the ounce of prevention. America in Iraq and Afghanistan is the pound of cure. If the Iraqi government hadn't gone so insane with debaathification then COIN in iraq would've been so much easier.
>Is Russia better at COIN than America?
Lol no
America uses a higher technique called Hearts and Minds. This is far superior than anything Russian. Show me a picture of a Russian Sapper having fun with Syrian kids after taking out the land mines and I'll tell you it is propaganda, unlike the superior photos of America

Does this look better to you?

Oh shit, you must be high rank in call of duty with that much knowledge.

Circumstances that require you to switch hands are common enough to give it merit.
It's useful e.g. when shooting from behind a corner to the right, but nobody really switches shoulders while they're moving forward with potential enemies ahead.

During the north hollywood shootout, 2 gunmen had body armor and fully automatics. Police made hits with pistols and shotguns but they had no effect before several went to a local gun shop to get AR15s that were never used.

Nope, just drugged up and wearing soft armor. The distance the cops were shooting were to far, so they just couldn't do any damage, plus again the drugs really helped too.

Windowed pmag vs lancer, which is better? I have a bunch of each and I still can't decide. I like the aesthetics of lancer more, but pmag is much easier to load stripper clips into.
Because more expensive
Mostly yes, somewhat no. Translucent polymers are such because of their amorphous structure, which is inherently weaker then then the same material with a crystalline or semi-crystalline structure. But this is assuming they are using the same polymer in both types of mags, which I doubt.
