Welcome to /k/, 4chan's weapons board. Our board centers around weapons, armor, and other myriad military technology. While guns are the primary topic, threads involving any other sort of weapons, from swords and knives to tanks and jet fighters, come up frequently as well. If you're new, we suggest reading the sticky at http://amagicalplace.wikia.com/wiki/Sticky to get acquainted with the board's subject matter.

Before posting a thread, please check our catalog to ensure that a thread about the same topic does not already exist.

In actual operation, yes, it was. The 17 pounder's best ammunition, the SVDS round, was extremely inaccurate inside normal combat range, being nearly useless over 500 yards. The M93 HVAP was as accurate as the rest of the 76mm's range of ammo, which is to say extremely. All the other rounds available to both guns were sufficient for their tasks and gave comparable penetration. Further, the 17 shared the 76mm's deficiencies in terms of HE performance.

Since we're talking about the M4A3, which is what most people think of when they think Easy Eight, I should also point out that the Ford GAA was superior to the Chrysler A57 found in the Sherman VC. I don't know if the Firefly ever received HVSS suspension (which incidentally is the Easy Eight upgrade. 76mm Shermans were beneficiaries of the Easy Six upgrade, so Easy Eight is a bit of a misnomer), but if not, that would be another point in the A3's favor.

And most damning of all, the QF 17 was just too big for the original Sherman turret. The US experimented with 76mm guns in small hatch Shermans and found them unsatisfactory. The guns completely fucked up the ergonomics and drastically decreased the turret crew's effectiveness. This is why 76mm guns were almost never installed independent of the larger T23 turret. The 76mm was a much smaller gun than the QF 17, so it stands to reason that the problem would be greatly exacerbated for the Firefly, and a US evaluation bore that out, deeming it the least desireable Sherman variant. It only gets its reputation because the British brought Fireflys to Normandy, whereas the US left the 76s behind for various reasons, most of them logistical in nature.

TL;DR It did nothing better than the 76mm, and did at least two things worse.

>>33121326
Well, at least you're being realistic.

I think the T-34 gets a bad rap though. And that's coming from somebody who's shit on it more than once. There's a fundamentally good design in there, and even in practice some aspects of the T-34 were truly excellent.

Just a shame about the transmission, egress points, and shit tier Soviet manufacturing.

Well /k/ I may have just royally fucked up. I was fucking around and removed the crossbolt nut on my 91/30. I looked on some gun forums and apparently I probably shouldn't have done that because it could crack the stock. My question is how do I know if its back on tight enough?

They went to a new animation software and for some reason did not get rights to include it in the mod tools. I can understand why it wasn't there from a legal stand point what I don't understand is why they didn't just make sure they could before signing or using one that they could.

So, what you're saying is, repairing a legal broken receiver of a gun that is fully automatic, makes it illegal despite documentation that shows it was legal before the repairs? I doubt that.
>>
>>33121505

no i'm saying what he's doing is very clearly 100% legal it doesn't matter if it was a full auto gun made in 2016, so long as it's repaired in a way that is clearly semi-only and not easily converted, ie switching out bolts, something screwed in, etc.

If in Ontario you don't need to have a range membership.

If not in Ontario, get membership proof, go to store, buy gun, store starts the transfer, store calls you once transfer is complete, pick gun from store. You have to wait until the RCMP sends you the registration form before you can go to the range with it. If you are one to say "Fuck the police" just go to the range with your gun and don't get stopped along the way.

Is it true that you can take restricted guns anywhere in Canada, and if a cop asks you about them just say you're going to "x range in the direction I'm heading", or "heading back from x range"?

Going for my interview with a military career counsellor this week. What should I expect?

I've already read the preparation guide by the government, but do they try to pull any fast ones on you with stuff not mentioned in the guide?

Disregarding small conflicts with native Americans, because they're still Americans.

Has America ever won a war purely by themselves? Without the involvement of anyone else.

I mean what the fuck does this mean?

We're the ones who help the others out when they're like boohoo can't do X on my own. We show up and and who ever we show up for wins period and done.

It's a growing number, but a small number. Even if they tried anything against the state, they'd be put down immediately. Don't get me wrong, I ain't no boot licker. But a leftist revolution against the government? Even if it were feasible, I don't want a Bolshevik takeover.

Eventually one of them will fuck with some militia group or right-winger(s) with a CCW and get put down by non-state actors real fucking quick.

Not him but the new ones are TINY. I got to hold one at a store and they didn't feel like grips at all, they were like half the size of what they should be.

Nevermind using them to shoot even 9mm, forget .44 magnum.

As far as I'm concerned the grips on the S&W 29-10 classic is an automatic out of the box replacement.
