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.

Pmags are easiest. Just drill out pin
>>183 This >>296 Probably could do it with pliers and a dremel easily.
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.
>>183 >Get standard 30rd mag >Write "Beer coaster" on it >Use as beer coaster >Profit? Bonus freedom points for using the special 'bottle opener'.
>183 30 round PMAGs are entirely made of plastic and are available at a bunch of gun stores in the states, no ID needed at least in the based and redpilled states. Learn how to pop off the door panel of your vehicle, I'm pretty sure the little metal spring alone won't show up on any type of scan or whatever. >t. paid cash for 5 pmags recently without so much as a blink from the cashier.

Knife general. Am well versed in knives and swords. Ask and I'll answer truthfully with knife and sword related questions
CQB Auto nothing less.
it there like a safe way to carry a knife around, and are there some methods attack someone as discretely as possible.
Yea, the best way to use a knife is to decapitate a US Government agent assigned to *chan and post a selfie on /b/ or /g/
Dear knife kun. I have recently stabbed my waifu pillow (its art) because the whore let my cat sit on her face. Its not Mr.Fluffles fault, he just wanted some attention, i blame her obviously. She knew what she was doing. But the question i really want to ask is this: Having severely overestimated my upper body strength i find myself unable to withdraw my FIRST BLOOD MKII due to the otherwise highly useful saw back becoming entangled in her filling & cover material. I have already removed the matches & fishing kit to reduce weight & have determined magnetic north if thats any help? The tweezers seemed to offer a lifeline at first but i am unable to use them to pick out & untangle the threads because every time i go near her i get an asthma attack & start crying again. I don’t want to ask my mother because that would mean admitting i have a 'body art' pillow & she just wouldn’t understand. Plz hlap.

anybody got a QRD on bayonet laws? I was under the impression it was some nationwide ATF bullshit, but I saw my LGS is selling a bayonet lug. I swear I just assumed it was completely illegal. Does it go state-by-state?

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.

>>255 I just looked into this stuff some, why does the Bundeswehr not use a standardized attachment device, they have snap-on type buttons for seemingly everything except the pants which look to be exclusively buttons save the pocket covers on the side of the pants. Not that it matters much if a button breaks, easy fix. >>258 Pretty sure pic related is legal so I don't see why whatever you're doing wouldn't be. I don't think it's illegal to make a gun look like a toy. Not a lawyer.
>>156 Go look at the forums out there for Form 1’s. Without giving any away, I’ll say that there are easy to find sites that sell every thing you’d need to make a “”””solvent trap”””” that would work for any caliber for around $300. Just go research it.

What's the absolute heaviest AR-15 barrel? Lets assume I'm a noob who just wants to practice magdumping at 5-15 yards (CQC) so accuracy isn't important, just don't want to ruin the barrel or have it jam up or some bullshit. Does anybody make anything thicker than the standard NATO HBAR profile? Also how many rounds in a row is it safe to fire through a standard (M4 style) barrel? So far I've just been doing 3-10 round bursts (semi-auto). Can I just magdump a whole 30 rd mag no problem? 3x 30 round mags in a row? What problems does it cause if my barrel gets too hot?Also how many rounds in a row is it safe to fire through a standard M4 style barrel? So far I've just been doing 3-10 round bursts (semi-auto).

>>323 Looks like the heaviest profile is the Bushmaster, seems to be a bit heavier even than the NATO A2 profile. Too bad the current meme seems to be gucci chromed-out pencil barrels. Can't find either a Bushmaster or even a NATO A2 barrel anywhere in 16" 5.56 in stock anywhere. >market opportunity for some edgy company to come out with some 1.2 inch-thick chode monstrosity and call it the MAGDUMPER

Why is nobody posting Anonymous 04/10/2020 (Fri) 16:21:57 ID:6fbea2 No. 273 [Reply] [Last]
Why is nobody posting
>273 >id posting 1. Wave of violence preparation dying down after the excitements of early 2019. whites settling back into the slow boiling of the frog. "We can vote/breed our way out of this" instead of the inevitability of armed conflict. 2. Guns as a tool philosophy - it's possible to acquire a nice arsenal but recognize that past a certain point, minor increments in lethality of your weapons are less effective than building a political movement or at minimum a small circle of friends who can stand guard around the clock on your compound. 3. The average /k/ poster on 4chan is likely less internet-savvy than some, and is more likely to believe that we still have freedoms such as freedom of speech, freedom of thought, freedom of assembly. They see little harm in allowing a corpus of their posts to be assembled against them for later use. Perhaps also they live in particular state jurisdictions where they percieve they are less likely to be effectively Red Flagged for wrongthink. so some combination of lazyness, stupidity, and apathy.
rather nobody post than have some zoomer faggot like you whine about no posting. go back to your ADD shithole
>>273 probably because, for the most part, imageboards are dead. Most /k/ groups are now on Telegram, riot.im, or (kube forgive me for saying) Discord. The imageboard died with 8ch. The Imageboard may never come back. 4ch is an absolute joke with zero quality discussion, zero pdf sharing and only 1 file upload per post. 8kun is a fed run op 9ch.us doesn't allow pdfs either. Honestly, this is probably the best bunker but i dont think anybody is coming.
>>279 I came, and I'm sure others will follow
Action begets action. If we all post more, more people will join in. We should also bring back the PDF thread, for starters - trading firearms textbooks and books on warfare were probably my favorite thing about 8/k/.

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.

>>286 Are the plans for the FGC-9 and mags on some private torrent site somewhere? Can't find them anywhere without giving out my credit card info and showing ID.
>>286 As one 'murican author who fled to Canada said, the future is here, it's just not evenly distributed yet: https://www.macleans.ca/news/canada/the-nova-scotia-shooter-case-has-hallmarks-of-an-undercover-operation/ This is extra cutesy of them because even at the time right after the shooting, it was acknowledged that the incident was well beyond the grasp of these legislative "solutions" "offered" to the country.
>286 Open source guns are great. But in my mind the number one thing people need to be working on is the propellant. California is a glimpse of the future and they're starting to restrict ammo just as much if not more than the actual firearms itself. You can't buy ammo unless you have a registered gun in that caliber inside of California. If you have a source for black market ammo then presumably you have a source for black market firearms as well as it's really not too much of a stretch between those two things. The revolution has machinists, and it has 3D modelers. What we need next are chemists, real chemists.
>>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.
