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.

I'm the lead coordinator for the Western Australian branch of the Liberal Democratic Party.

The LDP is Australias first Libertarian political party, we're a small government, classically liberal party, we have one member in parliament, Senator David Leyonhjelm, who's notable exploits have been delivering a record number of speeches, introducing a marriage equality bill, calling for legalised self defence in the wake of the Sydney terror attacks, and telling a commie to go fuck himself.

Ok well let me fill you in.
He timeskips again. This time heterosexuality is illegal. He goes to some distant moon to fight dudes. He is sad because this means he will never see his gf again. He fights dudes. Goes back to earth. Everyone is now a clone. Turns out the war ended within 5 minutes of the human clones meeting the aliens (who are also clones) just because (literally the reason given is "only clones can understand"). They give his crew pills to make them not-gay and send them all to a paradise planet with all the other war veterans. His girlfriend is there too because the clones kept her alive with their deus ex machina machine.

Dust cover scope mounts will not hold zero. If you want to mount of scope you either need to drill and tap the receiver for a scope mount or an AK style scope rail, or use a rear sight scope mount like the picture you posted in the OP. What type of optic do you plan on mounting on it?

hi /k/,
after shooting my glock 17 for a few years I want to try something new.
I'm looking for a rifle now.
After my time in the army I havn't held a rifle in my hands.
So I basically have to start from scratch.

The rifle shouldn't be to pricey and easy to maintain.
But I don't want to buy some garbage that can't be sold ever again.

I think I'd go for .223 rem / 5,56mm NATO calibre.
At all the shooting ranges near my place I can shoot from 100 to 300 metres. (1 metre = 1,09 yards)

what sight can you recommend?
mostly I'll be shooting at targets at 100m I guess.
I won't need it for hunting.

Canadian /K/ommando here, calling all Canadians, our Chilean brothers, or anyone with experience of the FAMAE SG540 rifles.

I'm thinking of buying one of SG542 with a folding stock, as I want a battle rifle that's not a M1A, anyone have any experience using these things? In terms of reliability and accuracy, since there's so little about this rifle on the internet.

My dad is friends with the guy in charge of importing them, cool guy and he's been working on it for a few years. The FAMAE people were really excited to get the opportunity.

I got to hold one of the short barrel assault rifles, feels better than any Sig I've held, US or otherwise. Might get a chance to shoot it soon.

Is this as prestigious as the CIB?
>>
nope not even close
>>
>>24887677
Military awards like this don't necessarily mean shit.

You can't call a CIB prestegious, because unfortunately so many people have deployed and the system being the way it is, some CIBs were earned because a mortared landed 150m away in a FOB. While another soldier might not have earned, or just barely been awarded a CIB for actually being in the shit all day, every day. All hail paperwork and TOC connections.

Same shit with CMBs. And hell CABs for that matter; sort of sad how easy it is to earn a CAB- some of the non combat arms guys who actually deserved some recognition for going on patrols got a devalued award the same as a BN admin clerk who went to salsa night on the FOB.


TLDR- Awards don't mean anything.

Then again, anyone who has seen a buddy go down in combat is grateful to see a medic. Have had a few friends who are still around because of heroic efforts of a 68W. Most of us had CLS and could bandage and start an IV, but the medic is who saved their lives.

Because of what I saw medics do in Iraq when I left the Army I became a firefighter/EMT to do my part in saving lives.
>>
From what I know, the CMB can't be blanketed. You HAVE to apply medical attention in combat for it to be awarded, medical personnel that are on, say KAF in Afghanistan will receive a CAB for FOB rocket attacks.
As far as CMB and CIB goes infantrymen love doc and see him as just like them. I've known quite a few people that have got FOB CIBs it all comes down on the commander and if he wants to approve them. If you're like me and have a CIB and Purple Heart you can pretty much justify that I actually saw combat and wasn't sitting in the TOC.

I went to the pawnshop today and was looking for nugget food for my mosin nagant rifle until I noticed a surplus rifle I have not seen before.

I found a Turkish Mauser rifle that have the Turkish symbols on it and it has the hole in the back of the stock and everything appears to be intact I think but I do not know alot about Turkish Mauser rifles though so please educate me on this because my check comes in tomarrow and I have today and tomarrow before going there to the pawnshop to decide if it is a good find and I should get it or it is not a good find and i should wait for one day until I come across a german Mauser with all the nazi markings on it.

Also the Turkish mauser has a straight bolt on it while the german one has a curved down bolt.

So should I get it or should I not get it?

What are the pros and cons of the Turkish Mausers?

Will it be able to take in today's commercial loads or should i look for only the surplus loads?

Please help me because I am a faggot /k/

OP here

I am about to go do my errands but i will go to the pawnshop and check out the barrel to see if it is worn out and i will check out if it is an s mark version and if it is then yay that means i can shoot modernized 8mm and the only downside would be that i would not be able to shoot the j versions through it but it is alright.

Also i will get the stamp on the markins for you guys so you can judge it and tell me if i should get this or not but i wish i have a karabiner k98 though but the turk mauser will be my very first mauser though and i hope it can still take on today.

Also i will check out the two Lee Enfield rifles there and i am not educated on the Lee Enfield though so educate me on it when i show the pics to you guys on here.

But thank you very much on educating me on the ammo and the model build of it and it will be a very interesting historical rifle to own due to the turkish history behind it.

I hope it can still take on life but still just bare with me

Also don't worry i will not sporterized any surplus rifles i find.

To be honest /k/

Maybe an AIM-120C. You're fucking high if you think they've got a lower profile than AIM-120D fins.

In either case, the proposed AIM-120D MER that might expand capacity from four to six AMRAAMs already needs to stagger the missiles so that the fins cross in front of one another, just to get it to fit. There's just no way of doing that with full-length strakes.
