Thinking about putting trying my hand at rolling my own roller gun from flats and parts.
I was originally thinking about starting off with an MP5 build, but then I realized I could do something a little more rare, and put together an HK53 sized build, but in 300 Blackout.
The more I think about it, the more sense it makes to me - 300blk was originally intended to offer more capability than pistol caliber SMGs, the HK roller system mean you don't need to fiddle with gas settings and have very reliable operation across bullet weights and speeds.
Plus it looks cool as hell.
What are your thoughts /k/? Any idea why no manufacturer has really sold this yet?

ah. I knew it would be something like that but didnt know they had different diameter rollers, figured a spring or something. thanks

>>61034685
It's not the rollers, that's a headspace adjustment. You're thinking of the locking wedge, which takes thirty seconds to change.

It doesn't matter because your opponent shall be armed similarly. If that's the case don't say smallsword as it'll be a double hit festival.

>You can actually train/spar with them without risk.
Bokken are made of hardwood, if you strike someone with one you're going to break something, likely the hands of your sparring partner since they often have no guard.

No guns here, someone recommended me a Bear Creek Arsenal AR-15 as a good beginner gun, he said they are a solid platform and reasonably accurate, is it true?
Price is good.

My brother asked his friends how heavy a one handed sword was and most answers were 10-20 kg, someone even said 25 kg. Nobody said 1 kg which is the right answer.

There is a diminishing returns situation with swing speed vs weight. A baseball pro who can swing a bat at 90MPH cant swing a bat half the weight at 180MPH.

>There is a diminishing returns situation with swing speed vs weight.
Yeah. This is why all swords are actually pretty similar in length and weights. One handed been 2-3 pounds, it's the sweet spot of speed and mass.
>>
>>61011849
People only see swords from movies, stories, and plays, in which a more heavier sword simply looks more dramatic than the reality of a lighter sword.

>No they weren't, there is a document showing katanas were responsible for less kills than fucking rocks, most casualties in Japan were due to spears and arrows.
Yet go look at any artistic depictions of bushi from the Heian era to the late Edo era and you'll see them hauling swords. The tachi developped during times of war for use on horseback, the uchigatana was developed during the Onin war to fight at close range during the pike pushes (see "The Connoisseur's book of Japanese Swords").

>spear paired with a dagger(for when things got too personal) is the most common combination worldwide.
How about making that dagger really long mmh...? And then you can also have a dagger! Crazy I know.

>Up until very late medieval era, swords very mad expensive as well.
We're talking Japan and warrior armies. The whole point of being a warrior is that you have the equipment.

Your whole talking points have been time and time rebuked. All of the warrior classes used and hauled swords and daggers and spears and all that gizmo because they were useful. Your point goes against all artistic depictions of warrior, all sources talking about warriors equipment.

>Sword is neither versatile nor particularly useful, it's a dueling/self-defense instrument
So why did all the people who could afford them wear them in war exactly!? Yeah because swords ARE particularly useful and more versatile than a freaking dagger, that's why!

Yid Shadow is ready for production. 300km range, 400kg, high subsonic, air- and sea-launched. Helicopters, I guess? Smol planes? Killer skiffs?

https://shephardmedia.com/news/air-warfare/rafaels-ice-and-sea-breaker-readies-for-production

Rafael has shared with Shephard that its air-launched Ice Breaker and surface-launched Sea Breaker missile systems were contracted by two customers approximately two years ago and that production would begin shortly.

While the Israeli defence and technology company declined to comment when asked if it was one or both missile types that had been contracted for, both systems are identical other than the booster and launch canister of the Sea Breaker.

When they were hearing the BEEP BEEP BEEEEEEEEEP from missile lock, what options does the A-50 have at that point? Can it maybe fucking zig zag or perform a dive while breaking right to make the missile fail the angle of attack?

What other options does it have?
>Increase speed to full and outrun the missile
>Discharge drop tanks and self destruct. The blast may distract the missiles
>Eject all cargo from cargo hold to create a chaff debris field
>Shoot down the missile with the rear tail guns
>Use ECM suite to jam the missile and make it fucking miss

Resource on what these spec terminology mean
https://www.nite-walker.com/post/2019/11/21/specs-for-dummies-101
https://apollogearco.com/blogs/news/night-vision-specs-explained
https://gloomgroup.com/blogs/night-vision-info/night-vision-specifications-understanding-what-they-mean

You shouldn't be chasing for spec values but they do exist and if you wanted to know what "better spec" values are there's a way to know which unit is desirable over another.
Most retailers won't post this info as they build NVDs to order, first come first serve, and depending on their grading scale of high, mid, low tier it may differ from retailers. If a retailer offer a “ready to ship” fully built units they will list the spec values. Hand select is an option from retailers that will try to match to your spec requirements.

Russian media has revealed the 'Afalina' uncrewed surface vessel to rival the Ukrainian Sea Baby and Magura types. The Russian version, actually a sub-scale prototype, is shown being put through its paces on a calm lake.

The prototype actually bears a striking resemblance to a remote control model of one of Ocke Mannerfelt's famous 'bat boats'. Swede Ocke Mannerfelt designed his iconic bat boats for racing. They are so-named because of the distinctive wings at the stern which resemble the classic batmobile. These aid stability on tight turns. Overall the designs have a reputation for seakeeping.

lol russia, what a ridiculous fucking shithole.

what is the primary limiting factor in the development and production of tanks/afvs, in particularly during the ww2 period?

aircraft production and development seems entirely bottlenecked by the development and production of higher and higher powered aircraft engines, but i'm not sure if there is a similar restriction on tank development

it seems surprising to me that hungary could produce at least functional tanks and were on the verge of producing a medium tank equivalent by 1944 despite being a tiny country with little manufacturing base

i'm fascinated by the conversion of civilian manufacturing to military production, particularly with regards to the production of tanks/afvs

Modestly off-topic, but what is the deal with tank engine HP in WW2, and how do you even compare tank engines? Some early war tanks barely have 100HP but supposedly have tons of low end torque, but isn't torque really just dependent on the drivetrain? Would a 1 litre 100hp Ecoboost smoke those old engines with the correct drivetrain? Would a 6.2 L Chrysler V8 producing 800HP beat every single WW2 tank?

>>61030771
Remington 870 (pre freedom group). I'd recommend picking one up that has a 3 1/2 or 3 inch chamber so you can buy and use any available ammo (after all the gun grabber "scares" over the years this might be convenient). My personal favorite Remington 870 model is the Wingmaster Magnum, it's a long boi barrel but man is the action so silky buttery smooth. There's some great deals on the older used 870's out there, just gotta look around at pawn shops and online

Nothing about that receiver says "Mauser 98". Search through pictures of competition shooting rifles to find one with a similar action.
