I realize this board has almost no posts on it but I don't see any reason to shit out a billion posts all over it with simple questions.
Now onto my question: Can someone tell me why the fuck Flektarn pants cost so much when compared with a parka or field jacket? It doesn't make any sense at all to me. Is there a greater demand for the pants? Maybe I'm just retarded but I can't find a pair under $40.

Okay fucksticks, I have a stupid question for you. I can’t decide wether to buy a 6B5 or a 6B3. Dubs or the most intelligent argument decides.
>>323 >>332 Boy did I ever have that wrong. InRange dumped 7 mags full auto through a pencil barrel and nothing broke. There probably isn't an action (piston guns included) that could survive what you'd have to do to a heavy barrel to damage it. You will never hurt your pencil barrel in semi-auto and you probably can't hurt it in full auto either.
>>342 Why russian milsurp at all? Commercial ceramic and UHMWPE plates are lighter, less bulky, fit in a plate carrier of your choice and have as-good or better threat ratings. You'll still spend less than on a 6b5, probably the same or a little more than a 6b3.

The NCRI (Network Contagion Research Institute) published a paper on how boogaloo memes and lolbertarian faceberg pages are a domestic threat to the US, and how they've had effects on events like the Whiskey Warrior 556 standoff and various open carry protests. They discuss the deployment of language analysis software, Law Enforcement cooperation, and the monitoring of websites, in order to detect "dog whistles", hateful violence, and calls to insurgencies and mobs. Be aware that they're going to start using smarter methods to single out and disarm/detain even the most subtle bad goys, especially with the upcoming deployment of HARPA and Federal Level ERPOs.

Thanks for the info anon. We'll just have to meme harder with more OC it seems.
>>290 Yeah
Full of strawmen and doublespeak even in the first few pages. It conflates right wing or reactionary violence with Islamic terrorism, even though one is destructive, turning western nations into shitholes, whereas the other is constructive, removing obstacles to western greatness. The entire point of memetic drift is that it evolves to counter any attempts to censor it. This paper was published some 3-4 months after the boogaloo meme started to gain traction. Unless they cut out entire levels of bureaucracy and control a 4GW structure, they are simply not going to be anywhere near the inside of even the slowest anon's OODA loop. This paper reads like it was written by committee. They will need to dissolve the Politburo to stop the boogaloo from happening, and without a boogaloo they will never dissolve the Politburo.

The future of gun control in America, Europe and around the world Anonymous 04/26/2020 (Sun) 22:45:35 ID:c84347 No. 286 [Reply] [Last]
Back in the 90s when gun control first became a thing after Dunblane in England, people had to make shitty zip guns to circumvent European gun laws. Due to the lack of availability of lathes, mills or other factory equipment that's required to build a firearm, most homemade guns were unreliable at best or hand-held pipe bombs at worst. Two of the best examples would be the Luty 9mm SMG and the Brocock revolvers. The Luty SMG is a 9mm submachine gun that is an open bolt, smoothbore, jam-o-matic piece of shit that lacks an extractor and the rounds can only go out via inertia, and it lacks a shoulder stock. These are made entirely from hardware store parts. But the thing is that smokeless rounds would most likely not work on this gun, so you'd need to use black powder cartridges. The second one were a type of airsoft revolvers that were manufactured in the UK at a certain time that could easily be converted to fire real rounds by simple drilling or adding .22 sleeves. But fast forward to today and you've got a much better selection of homemade and black market firearms. You've got Tor's black market guns and 3D printer guns as well as CNC machines which will allow you to rifle the barrels so that they're actually reliable firearms. I appreciate the works of Cody Wilson and the Tor project to not only make information more accessible and to act as a platform for dissidents, but also because now the government can't do anything to stop the flow of guns in heavily restricted areas. That means that now Eurotrash, felons, the mentally ill, terrorists and virtually anybody else can own a gun now regardless of what the government has to say. I think this is a win.

>>311 Hold on, doesn't that mean it's very called-for to really focus on shotguns? With bullet guns, isn't the whole cartridge somewhat complex? Or is it more the complexity of magazine based guns? Either way, it might be helpful to have, say, an "11 gauge" round, that's actually technically like 10.3 gauge, but in actuality is more powerful than 10 gauge. Revolvers are also peculiarly restricted in some places, maybe because they're less hassle for tinkerrers?

>>311 This. Its the fucking ammo. If a collection of pakis can make replica firearms on a machine lathe in the hindu kush then a white man can do better. Its the percussion cap thats the killer, the rest is fairly conceivable if you don’t mind low grade black powder rounds or something. Fulminate of mercury is doable but im not a chemist & while i have read on the subject all this has done is convince me that im not a fucking chemist. <Strike anywhere match heads Unreliable & easily choked off by gubment with strike on box only. <Other suggestions? Are welcome. <Fancy experimental stuff You could make a variant of a glorified Diesel air rifle that ignites a flammable accelerant in place of a percussion cap. Pics related. OR you could make a fucking heated elongated firing pin using an electric charge (i think Remington did a rifle that was electric fired) with a battery or something? Then have the pin puncture through a paper disk that holds the propellant in the cartridge in place of the cap to fire the charge? Meh. By the time i have done all that i would have a low grade firearm & a handful of unreliable rounds. Or i could just make a plumbers suprise with a silicone fuse.

/k/nowledge thread Anonymous 09/18/2019 (Wed) 03:09:42 No. 9 [Reply] [Last]
As you must train your body, surely you must also train your mind.
In the spirit of the lost quality threads of old, I'm calling for a knowledge thread. Share your books that you see as required reading for kommandos and enthusiasts alike, anything from war memoirs and biographies to history books and weapons development. These should be books written by the experts in the field, books of first hand knowledge to be passed on to the next generation. Experiences of the masters of firearms, practitioners of death, the soldiers of fortune, and the inventors of these tools we have come to hold so dear. Bring out your library lists

We'll have another thread for TM's and manuals later, this is for more fireside reading material.

The Art of the Rifle This book is a great throwback to the skills of old, how to wield a rifle effectively and quickly and how to hit your target no matter the positioning, distance, or conditions. A highly recommended read for poorfags with nothing but a mosin.

Molested Magazines for Leafs Anonymous 11/04/2019 (Mon) 06:07:33 ID:2005c3 No. 183 [Reply] [Last]
Please help me, I'm in this horrible land, where rifle magazines have been limited to a capacity of 5rds; how would anyone here go about in disassembling and flattening, capacity-limiting dents in your AR-15 magazines?
I have a stainless-steel 5.56 Duramag that I'll work on, I'd also rather not permanently damage the magazine.

Also, if there are other 5.56 AR15 magazines available in Canada, which are easier to restore to their original 30rd capacity, please let me know.

Best method: get a small machine screw, a nut and two washers. Small enough that the follower can't snag on the hole, 1/8" or 3/16". More threads per inch is better, because this is going to be a lot of torque for a screw that size. The washers need to be bigger than the dents so you can only see undamaged metal around the top one. Drill a hole in the dent for your screw, slightly bigger than the screw (the stretched metal is going to need somewhere to go when you press it back into shape.) Grind/sand two sides of one of your washers until it fits in the slot the follower rides in (where the dent is.) You may need to make a few of these if your screw head hits the slot before it contacts the washer. If your washer already fits then great, skip that step (you may still need a stack though. Pull the follower and spring and insert the screw with the ground on washer(s). If your screw is a hexcap and short enough to fit down the magazine body narrow-ways, save yourself some frustration and put it in with a pair of pliers from the inside with the hole facing down (don't forget the washer(s), and you can hold the screw by the threads just below the washer(s) if you're having trouble getting it down the slot.) Then apply the regular washer and nut to the other side, finger tighten and put a wrench on both of them. Turn the outside wrench until you're pretty sure you're about to strip the screw (no biggie if you do, just get extra) and you should have a flattened out dent with a hole that isn't likely to make the follower snag and tilt. Less good but easier way: drill the dent out completely. Place a washer or any other flat circular object which can fit through the hole into hole, kept from falling through by a backer that fits into the slot (a straight piece of wood, or something you're not afraid of messing up.) Clamp the backer (lightly) in place and apply an adhesive. JB Weld (or whatever the equivalent is up there in Leaf Land) will do fine. Superglue isn't great but it'll do in a pinch. Leave it to set up and you should have a working mag. You can drill out your patch and try again if it doesn't run. Janky but quick: drill the dent out, tape over the hole in the slot from the inside, and slime that shit with JB Weld. Let it set up and remove the tape. You might be able to just glue shimstock over the hole. Never tried it, don't know if the follower would try to snag on the edge of the (covered) hole or not.
