I don't like wearing zipped sweaters while concealing, it never works for me.

I just lift it up, I don't bother with unzipping it.
User avatar #9821 to #9820 - weaponexplain ONLINE (1 hour ago) [-]
I've tried that, I just don't like it. Crew neck sweatshirts work well for me, so that's what I usually wear during the winter. I'll post a picture on Monday, currently away from home.

I can't find ANY dealers who sell Meyerco knives in-store in New Hampshire. Does anybody know any?
User avatar #9810 to #9808 - weaponexplain ONLINE (18 hours ago) [-]
Never heard of them. Are they good quality?
User avatar #9811 to #9810 - moldybreadcrumb (13 hours ago) [-]
No idea yet. I've heard from one source that they sometimes come with imperfections (dents in the blade, uneveness in the handle coating), yet they reported they were reviewing 20-40 dollar knives.
They sell "professional" use knives as well, so I think those would have a much better quality.

Ugh. One of my close friends is a 'moderate-democrat' and he has very different views from me when it comes to gun regulation. He wants to ban 'assault weapons.' Just today he sent me this comedian's bit about guns. I chuckled a couple times, and he even had a couple fair points. But he obviously is motivated by creating a humorous bit and not actually having a real discussion.

Basically just venting/ranting. Frustrated. I'm against the banning of any weapon. He's very much so of the mindset that the idea of citizens keeping the government in check with firearms is a dumb/impossible idea. Jim Jefferies - gun control

He's a good guy, there's not really many "bad" people who want stricter gun control. They're usually just misinformed and idealistic.

DI vs piston, what are the pros and cons of either one?
DI vs piston, what are the pros and cons of either one?
User avatar #9801 to #9792 - thamuz ONLINE (11/21/2014) [-]
Its pretty obvious what the pros and cons are.


With DI you get a lighter system,its simpler,less parts(but has O-rings to seal it up) but too short a barrel and the gas system wears out from over pressurers and heat,too long,the system will short stroke and not feed properly.

Piston you get a heavier,more durable setup(even tho HKs 416 was a failed attempt,it was found that the 416 was simply unable to keep up) On the M16 platform,DI is fine. You just gotta oil it every once in a while.

Both have their merits. It depends on what you are building. A small, PDW sized weapon? I would want piston. A mid ranged general use? DI is fine. But at long ranges? Its a toss up really. Both are good.


Basically,if it ain't broke don't fix it. If you want a piston platform go to the AK. Piston powered ARs are just too expensive right now to justify their uses.
User avatar #9802 to #9801 - hourlyb ONLINE (11/21/2014) [-]
I thought the HK416 was considered a very good rifle? What did I miss?
User avatar #9803 to #9802 - thamuz ONLINE (11/21/2014) [-]
It is a very good rifle. However,the early variants(and thus wha t were tested extensively) started having hiccups and problems. I.e,short stroking,and FTE/FTF/FTF.

I do believe it's problems at that stage of the testing was the dust environments. and later the magazines were at fault.

From what I can recall,the HK416C and later variants are great. They appear to have fixed the teething problems rather admirably well.

However,the price for the 416 parts is outrageous.

User avatar #9788 - thamuz ONLINE (11/20/2014) [-]
Thoughts on those Citadel compact 1911s? I've thought about getting one...Seems like a decent starter in the 1911 world. I hear good praise on those Rock Island..but I can never find.


Also..I recently picked up a Taurus 58C..you know those .380 copies of the Beretta 92? Well,it was 100 bucks so I figured a range toy. But it has a broken safety plunger,so it wont fire. Should I risk sending it back to Taurus? What happens if they lose it? I hear lots of horror stories on their customer service and it makes me kinda nervous because I've never seen any of these 58s around in a long time and I kinda like it.
User avatar #9789 to #9788 - weaponexplain ONLINE (11/20/2014) [-]
You get what you pay for. And with Taurus you usually get even less. If you know how to fix it, get the part and do it yourself. If you have a warranty on the pistol, send it to Taurus and have them fix it. I've never owned a Taurus so I don't know how they operate. Another option is to take it to a local gunsmith and have him do it. If all else fails, then you're only out a $100 and you learned your lesson.
#9766 - spilll (11/20/2014) [-]
The Colt Anaconda.

Any owners here? I've been looking for one for a while, any opinions on these? looks/accuracy/price trends


You may remember this gun from its appearance as Barry's magnum in resident evil. Or also the big brother of walking dead's rick grimes' iconic revolver, the colt python
User avatar #9786 to #9766 - thamuz ONLINE (11/20/2014) [-]
I've had range time on one.

Incredible. But not worth the price. None of them are. They are getting rare yes.

But a Mod 29 is better. Easier to get parts for,similar,and with a bit of creative smith work,you can make it just as smooth.

They range anywhere from 1200 minimum to well over 3-4000. Seriously. A Dan Wesson PPC is nice if you can find a complete kit.

Amazing revolver,but if I am gonna get something that expensive(that is a wheel gun) I would look into other options,a Rhino is neat too. Maybe if I had more money to spend I would be more willing,but when the bare(no box,gun,scuffy finish etc) is selling for 1200..well..you gotta be real careful with it.

The Snakes are nice..but over priced by a wide margin. My favorite is the Python to be honest.
User avatar #9797 to #9786 - spilll (11/20/2014) [-]
Thanks, after more research I feel better about s and w's performance line, It would be awesome to have an Anaconda as a collectible, doubt I could keep it in a display case though
User avatar #9767 to #9766 - roliga (11/20/2014) [-]
Why not just get a S&W Model 29? It's literally everything the Colt anaconda wishes it was.
User avatar #9768 to #9767 - spilll (11/20/2014) [-]
Mechanically probly better off with a 29. But they are a dime a dozen.
User avatar #9769 to #9768 - roliga (11/20/2014) [-]
So you want something that doesn't work nearly as well and is harder to find replacement parts for?
User avatar #9770 to #9769 - spilll (11/20/2014) [-]
Yes.
User avatar #9771 to #9770 - roliga (11/20/2014) [-]
And not to mention the Anaconda is more expensive
User avatar #9772 to #9771 - spilll (11/20/2014) [-]
You can get them in good condition around 1200$ id be getting it more as a home defense collectible, the model 29 is more of a range gun, at least to me. s and w competition 44s are superior
User avatar #9773 to #9772 - roliga (11/20/2014) [-]
So you're going to get something less reliable and more expensive for home defense so that if you use it a $1,200 gun gets to sit and rust in an evidence locker for a minimum 6 months before you get it back, assuming you will get it back?
User avatar #9774 to #9773 - spilll (11/20/2014) [-]
Its not like itll be my only gun. just a fan of the snake series revolvers from Colt
User avatar #9775 to #9774 - roliga (11/20/2014) [-]
I'm just confused as to why, I don't understand your logic here.
User avatar #9776 to #9775 - spilll (11/20/2014) [-]
As a collectible.. I bet if i brought up a late 60s smith and wesson youd say its totally worth it.......
User avatar #9777 to #9776 - roliga (11/20/2014) [-]
You say you want to use it for home defense though, again, you're intentionally using a less reliable revolver with horrid timing issues, and an extremely expensive one that's just going to be taken from you if you use it. Seems to me you only want it because it looks pretty.
User avatar #9778 to #9777 - spilll (11/20/2014) [-]
After a refresh I think the reliability would be fine, no gun will shoot every time forever
User avatar #9779 to #9778 - roliga (11/20/2014) [-]
You can't refresh bad timing issues, that's just the way the gun is made.

Actually while I'm here i need help, what's a decent handgun I can get for concealed carry?
User avatar #9738 to #9727 - Zarke (11/18/2014) [-]
Depends on your experience level, preferred manual of arms, personal considerations ("How do I want to carry?" "What capacity do I feel comfortable with?" "Can I fix a holster into my purse?"), recoil sensitivity, etc. If you just ask for a good CC gun without specifying any of the above considerations, you'll get a useless stream of suggestions 69 miles long consisting entirely of handguns that don't have a reputation for jamming before the magazine is spent (which is a good place to start, mind).

So there are glass BB's, are there glass bullets?
User avatar #9724 to #9723 - weaponexplain ONLINE (11/18/2014) [-]
Sure why not. Good luck getting that glass to withstand the pressure and forces during firing. But maybe it's a good shotgun thing. You know, like a big fuck you to the face.
User avatar #9734 to #9724 - geothermal (11/18/2014) [-]
Think glass BB's in a .12ga shell would work?
User avatar #9736 to #9734 - weaponexplain ONLINE (11/18/2014) [-]
I don't see why not. As long as you load it properly (correct powder load, wad, etc.) it should work. You might not have the range you would with lead or steel shot because of the lower weight, but it should still work. I don't think I want to ask why you want to though.
User avatar #9698 - meowykins (11/17/2014) [-]
Opinions on surplus Russian ammo. It's more corrosive, yes? Shouldn't be a problem for a mosin, would it? So long as I clean and stuff after firing?
User avatar #9709 to #9698 - weaponexplain ONLINE (11/17/2014) [-]
Almost all Russian surplus is corrosive. If the ammo consists of copper washed or lacquered steel casings, it is almost 100% guaranteed to be corrosive. This makes up a majority of ammo you find in the spam cans. Eastern European ammo from like the 50s and 60s is a 50/50 on whether its corrosive or not. If it says Berdan primed then it is corrosive. Modern production ammo is not corrosive.

The best thing to take away from this is to just always clean your gun.
User avatar #9715 to #9709 - meowykins (11/17/2014) [-]
So, no on using surplus ammo? Modern production here is 20 rounds for 30 dollars. I'd rather just save up for a spam can's worth if I can.
#9716 to #9715 - youregaylol (11/17/2014) [-]
use it, just clean the gun

you should be cleaning your rifle after any session regardless
User avatar #9721 to #9716 - meowykins (11/18/2014) [-]
Already do. Just wondering if the shit would kill it. Thanks though!
User avatar #9749 to #9721 - trostell (11/18/2014) [-]
I suggest running water, preferably warm water, through the barrel before cleaning. It won't hurt the gun any if you're cleaning it in the next half hour anyways, and it'll take some of the looser bits of debris and residue with it. But yeah, always thoroughly clean all of your toys after use to ensure a long, happy life.

1. Old news
2. $2.50/round. Like nigga are you serious?
3. Feeding. Depending on your gun, it might not be able to feed the bullet into the chamber because it looks like the front of the bullet was polished by Michael J. Fox.
4. Most independent tests (tests not done by G2 shills) show that their numbers for penetration and spread are off. Usually 3-5in spread compared to the advertised 6, and 12-14in penetration instead of the advertised 15-17.
5. Quality hollow points have been tested alongside the RIP and the results were pretty similar.

In conclusion: 1/10. A bad attempt at making an exploding knife bullet. Would not buy.

Hey guise, I'm currently building an AR lower and plan to slap on an ARAK 21 upper on top. I found a pic of the exact paint job I want. Opinions?
User avatar #9687 to #9680 - weaponexplain ONLINE (11/17/2014) [-]
I don't like it. I agree with roliga that the color scheme is pants on head retarded. Also, I'm going to play devil's advocate. Below are its features and my input.

*Made from 6061-T6 aluminum. This isn't a bragging point, this one of the most common materials used.
*Quad rail system. Same thing, not innovative.
*Variable piston stroke setting. This is nice but really only necessary for fine tuned competition shooting or single shot shooting or if using a suppressor. If you don't need that what's the point?
*No buffer tube because built in recoil system. Again this is nice but only if you're using a folding stock.
*Ambidextrous charging handle. Good if you're left handed. Maybe. This just seems like a gimmick unless you don't like the normal AR-15 charging handle.
*Reliability. It's gas piston instead of gas impingement, that's the point, nothing revolutionary.
*$1200. For an upper. If you can afford it that's your business.

Why do you want the ARAK-21 upper?
User avatar #9703 to #9687 - llamaracer (11/17/2014) [-]
Thanks for your imput man. I want The ARAK-21 partly because it is a quality system, but by and large because I fell in love with one that a friend owns. I have no real "reasons" why I want the upper other than that this is the one I want, and my heart is set on it. The color scheme is subject to change (although I do want the od green upper). I don't want a black rifle just like everyone else. The AR-15 platform is modular, and I can change the pistol grip, or butt stock any time I choose (I am going to get a folding stock, yes, but not yet). I'll have enough saved up in about 3 more weeks for the upper, and the lower should be complete by then. I'll post pics when it gets done in about February.

Palmetto State Armory. I'm having a buddy buy and assemble the parts kits. He's highly experienced.
User avatar #9710 to #9708 - weaponexplain ONLINE (11/17/2014) [-]
The last sentence has piqued my interest. What makes him "highly experienced"?
User avatar #9712 to #9710 - llamaracer (11/17/2014) [-]
He builds Kalashnikovs from parts kits for a living, and has done more than his fair share of AR lower assemblies, and upper assemblies. He spends most of his time on /k/. You think you might know him?
#9741 to #9712 - Womens Study Major (11/18/2014) [-]
You can't build aks or any gun from parts kits with intent to sell for a living unless you have an ffl. So unless he has one, it's a felony.
User avatar #9713 to #9712 - weaponexplain ONLINE (11/17/2014) [-]
No there's 320 million people in this country. I don't know him, I was just curious on the definition of "highly experienced".

Hahahah, ok, he has the tools and knowledge to assemble, disassemble, and fix most any firearm. He mostly does AK variants.
