Sure, but this is a discussion about an American rifle built for .30-06 springfield. So .308 inches.

Oh my god I know the table you're talking about. I don't understand why he won't just modify the guns to be (((compliant))) and sell them to normal people already.

Ive used a P226 at work a lot, so I am thinking maybe the P229 Legion, seems to be a more modern rendition, still kinda new with pistols, living in the cucked state of Canada so you have to jump through flaming loops to get em here.

Need to buy some gold and silver to hedge my crypto investments but kinda want to buy a new gun as well.

Convince me to buy a new gun instead.

Silver is still a good buy at $17. Every year the global supply of silver is being diminshed. Unlike gold which is hoarded and just remelted into bars, coins and jewelry. The gold to silver ratio is way out of wack. Either gold is over priced or silver is undervalued. Hedge accordingly.
>>
Also the US only values the gold in fort Knox at like 30 something dollars on oz. What if they revalued gold at 10k an oz? No more 20 trillion dollar deficit.
>>
>>35541139

I'd argue that's probably true for a long term societal collapse, but realistically most SHTF scenarios are localized to a globally small area,(50-100mi radius), and rarely last for more than a half year to a year, this means that gold will still be valuable outside of the area and people inside the area will still hold it as an item of high value due to it being worth something to the outside world, this factor makes it great for short term scenarios since it's not backed by a government like most currency and isn't reliant on an internet connection like bitcoin, if you needed to pay your way out of a warzone there's nothing better in terms of universal value and ease of transport, although that's not to say you shouldn't stock food and water as well.

What's even the point of buying gold and silver? It's just shiny metal.

To all my fellow Floridians, where do you shoot? 813 here, and I am looking for a place to shoot that isnt a static bench. I want to do move and shoot operating so I can effectively larp in the gear I have. Anyone got good places to go to that is relatively nearby?

Went to SRSC a couple times. The RO was always having a hard time with idiots on the range. One time a guy shot himself in the leg just as we were arriving.

I like membership only ranges in this area. something weird about the gun culture makes public ranges a little too silly.

I hear ya. Thankfully I haven't seen that level of idiocy. I only go on my Fridays I get off work, and early too. Just me and maybe a few older folks.

Last time I went on a Saturday it was completely full. The lane next to us had a guy doing black powder and one doing mag dumps in his AR. Eventually a fire broke out on the range and we had to go stomp it out. I heard that a few Saturdays later another fire broke out, got out of hand, and they eventually had to call the forest service.

So yeah. I tend to avoid shooting on weekends.

Sup /k/, I bought a K98k which turns out had feeding issues. I brought it to a gunsmith to get fixed and it's better but still not great. He worked on the extractor and the feeding detent. From what I can tell the extractor isn't holding the cartridge the entire bolt travel enabling the cartridge to slip out of it. I believe that the extractor claw is too rounded/short to grip the rim the entire travel of the bolt. I also noticed that the claw is wider on the bottom than the area that holds the rim and I think could prevent it from rising as far under the claw as it should. I already have a new extractor on the way, but just in case that doesn't fix it, do you guys have any ideas? Pic related is the bolt face.

Put a thin film of lipstick on bolt face and extractor. This will tell you where contact is made. From you pic the claw doesnt seem to have enough chamfer on it. Has gun been rechambered? Was extractor set to new caliber ? Bolt face ground correctly?
Remove bolt and slide cartridge into bolt. Extractor should hold it in place. Weak/bent extractor?
>>
>>35541989
is the extractor original to that gun? you could have the wrong extractor for your caliber. I've never tried it myself but I imagine that the extractors across all 98 action mausers could be swapped but not function

To answer your questions, no the gun has never been re-chambered, it is an original post war Czech Brno made K98k chambered in the original 8x57IS. The extractor holds the cartridge in place just fine when pushing the cartridge on manually or after it has been chambered.

There's two possible explanations I can see for the failures. Either the extractor claw is too short to control the cartridge the entire travel of the bolt or the claw is not profiled correctly, so the cartridge isn't riding up as far as it should go under the claw, resulting in it not being held in place, therefore enabling it to drop out under the claw and move in front of it.

Sorry, got no lipstick, but I can see where it makes contact.


>>35545256

It may or may not be original to the gun. It is not numbers matching, however during the assembly of these post war K98k rifles in Brno, they basically reused all their stock. So while it may not be numbers matching to the gun, it may very well be the extractor that originally came on it. They only made them in 8x57IS. That doesn't necessarily mean it was fitted correctly though.

Forget my lipstick idea for now. Load mag with empty brass and cycle bolt. Weak spring maybe. Follower sticking? Bent lips? Trigger gaurd/mag not seated in stock correctly? Remove stock attach trigger gaurd to action and cycle bolt?

So wait are cops generally pro or anti 2a?

Straight walled cartridges are pistol cartridges (generally) or have big flat/round point bullets (generally) and so have less range (generally) and so therefore believed to be safer for flat land (generally).

That's a VMax bullet, it will fragment in the deer and wreck a ton of meat. Look for something that's a bonded soft point.

The Hornady choices I'd recommend would be 75 grain Interlock (sold as Hornady Black) if you've got a 1 in 7 or 1 in 8 twist, or a 55 grain GMX (sold as SuperPerformance) if you've got a 1 in 9 to 1 in 12 twist.

United States Space Corps Marine Landing forces patrol the remains of Martian Biodome 6 after a lull in the fighting against rebel forces caused by the incoming dust storm breaching the dome. The Battle of Space Fallujia or the "Ares Massacre" would become known as the bloodiest conflict in the wars of Martian Insurrection. It was the turning point in the conflict and the last time the Ares Neocaliphate attempted to hold ground or engage in conventional static defense against the USSC forces.

then back to regularly schedualed programming
