I recently came into a Mosin-Nagant in decent condition. Whatever the previous owner had used to lubricate the mechanisms with was some dark brown, amber-ish colored gunk that looked like it was really ready to be cleaned off and replaced. It looked like some sort of very poorly refined oil. I've cleaned the entire mechanism and only about half way through began to wonder if there was a particular point in this gunk.

Now that I've cleaned it off and oiled it down, I've come to the opinion that the bolt is a bit harder to operate than it was before I cleaned it. I'm wondering if maybe this thicker grease was partially to help offset the grinding of the bolt caused by a particularly sturdy spring. So what does /w/ use to oil their Mosin-Nagant to keep the bolt loose?

PS, there's an empty slot for what looks like a rod in the wooden body under the barrel. Was this rod used to force out stuck shells, or did it have some other purpose? How retarded would it be to mount a laser sight in there?

Do not use Windex or other household cleaners. Waste of money. All you are doing is trying to wash away the corrosive salts deposited in the barrel. Boiling water alone will accomplish this.

Sarah Palin 14/07/25(Fri)06:47 No. 14993

Yeah, windex is way to dilute to offer more than negligable benefit over hot water

Sarah Palin 14/08/10(Sun)07:27 No. 15014

I've read in some reloading manuals that some corrosive salt deposits can get trapped under copper residue from the rounds, and ammonia, being a copper solvent, can remedy this. Hoppes #9 has ammonia in it, so as long as you use water and maybe a little ammonia you're good.

See? It's protective AND makes you look cool.

I have the opportunity to buy a NCO Shin-Gunto sword from 1943,
good condition and with serial number matched scabbard.
What would be a good price for it, just so I dont get ripped off?

Sarah Palin 14/06/11(Wed)18:23 No. 14969

Since it seems that nobody is going to answer I'll give it a try. As far as I know Shin-Gunto are nice WW2 memorabilia but they are considered to be quite poor katanas since most of them were machine-made and oil-quenched. If you still want it, from what I've seen, an honest price should be around 1400-2200$
Still, don't take my word for it, do a little research before you shell out major bucks.

What does any body think about getting a PPS-43 parts kit. Most of them cost about 70 dollars which seems to be too cheap. Experience prefered.

Sarah Palin 14/01/17(Fri)07:28 No. 14883

That does seem pretty cheap. I have one of those and i love it.

However, i know that theres some kind of rule out there about the collapsible stock, so i'd make sure to check your local regulations about that.

The one i bought, the stock is permanently folded up over the reciever.

Fun as hell to shoot though.

Sarah Palin 14/04/16(Wed)03:52 No. 14952

A folding stock on a rifle wih a barrel less than 16 inches is considered a short barreled rifle, you would have to do extra paper work with he atf and aquire a title 2 tax stamp. I friend of mine has one of these with the stock pinned making it a pistol (less the 16 inches barrel has to be a pistol or an sbr).

Sarah Palin 14/04/21(Mon)20:01 No. 14957

go for it, they look pretty sweet. Although I have never used one so you should probably just ignore me.

Hello and good day. My friend and I are going shooting and would like to buy some cheaper ammo just for the range. I have been to the regular sites like "impactguns" and "cheaperthandirt", all I would like to know is what site's /k/ user's use to order there ammo.

That's a package from CTD. Not to mention their shitty prices.

FPOB!!R1ZmxlMzD4 14/04/05(Sat)06:33 No. 14951

I like to use ammoseek.com to find the cheapest ammo prices. Then from there I compare the shipping rates between sites to decide which site has the lowest price per round.

That's bad packaging and service, granted, but does it really matter when it comes to ammo? As long as it's not dented or exposed to moisture, it doesn't really affect the performance. I know a lot of people shit on CTD, but I've seen CTD having some of the lowest prices on firearms (not ammo though).

Sarah Palin 14/04/19(Sat)11:35 No. 14954

go to gunbot.net

they have a shit-ton of website that they pull from and update their price by round list every 90 seconds. Its actually really a badass website.

However it is based off of the individual website, so you'll probably have to register for that particular one, and some of them dont like to deliver to certain states...

a couple of them really don't like california

well hello there! im thinking of buying a gun in dos weekos (handgun) this will be my first handgun and was looking for some suggestions/ answers to a few questions i have.
A.) what are your suggestions for a first gun. im about 150lbs and 5'9 (in b4 manlet. also im trying to spend less than 500 bucks (is it worth it to get a gun for that cheap)
B.) how impractical is it to buy a revolver (that what i want and also how dumb is it to buy something larger than a 9mm i.e .38 or .40 (i am buying this for home/self defense as well as because its fun as fuck to shoot things in my back yard.)
c.) i will be buying this in my homestate (but not where i live currently) my home has almost no gun laws so i can walk in and walk out with whatever semi auto i want as long as i am over 18.. which i am. with this in mind whats the deal with guns going over state lines (i know i can look thsi up but while i have you...) ill be buying it in vermont and then heading back to ny. i do eventually plan on getting a license to conceal and carry.
thanks or fuck you...which ever is pertinent to your reply.
pic related... its the gun i want but obv wont buy

If I had a single round of CCI minimag for every time I've seen this question, I'd have enough to trade for a Noveske at current secondary market prices.

Carbon 15 Sarah Palin 13/11/23(Sat)23:00 No. 14839 [Reply]

I just got one of these new Bushmaster Carbon 15 carbines (5.57/.223 cal). I only put 30 rounds through it, which isn't much, but it's really nice. It has carbon parts so naturally it's very lightweight. Someone mentioned that it has some Teflon inner parts? I didn't look in to it before I bought it (which was dumb since normally I do, but I just took this guy's word for it) but it allegedly has very good heat distribution. It fired very nicely, no issues so far for the small amount of rounds that I put through it. I rarely hear of people having issues with this gun. So far the worst thing about it is the cheap magazine it comes with, but it hasn't caused any problems for me yet.

I got the one with the cheap red dot scope and have no complaints.

Thoughts on this gun?

Oh I was going to say, the only real drawback with the rifle itself is the rail design. I mean, the optic like I said, that can easily be replaced though, but the rail... I don't know how to explain it. The top rail isn't just part of the upper, it's an aluminum piece that appears to be screwed to the top sort of. It's not a bad gun, it's just not the most high quality. Definitely works though.

Only time I've had it jam was when a buddy of mine put some crappy, old reloaded 5.56 rounds through it. With any store-bought rounds I've never had a jam. He must have had shitty rounds.

Sarah Palin 14/03/24(Mon)01:32 No. 14938

I saw. That's an older model c15 which had numerous issues (which is why it earned a bad reputation). I noticed that's actually 9mm. I never said its indestructible. Just because that one did doesn't instantly make them all bad. Of course alloy is more durable but still. It is good considering it's price.

US Automatic Rifle Age Limitations Sarah Palin 14/01/23(Thu)06:43 No. 14887 [Reply]

Hello, /w/. Currently I'm 17 and looking at getting a license for a full-auto firearm within the next few years (probably by age 19) and wanted to know if any of you knew the legalities behind age on this.
I understand the process behind what must be done in order to obtain the license to own a rifle of these sorts in my state but am having difficulties finding if one must be 18 or 21 in order to complete this process. I live in the state of Indiana where I know that obtaining a concealed carry requires a person to be at least 21, but not once have I seen a defined answer for automatic rifles.
For the curious: The rifle I'd like to have is a Steyr AUG A3 (pictured)

What I do is grab the grip with my main hand so that the middle finger does the most squeezing and the thumb loosely points towards the target. Then I wrap my support hand around the grip so the meaty part by my thumb covers the bare part of the grip and the fingers overlap. Again, both thumbs don't contact the frame or slide but point at the target and the middle fingers do most of the squeezing. That way both hands are pretty high up on the grip to control recoil while keeping thumbs from brushing against the slide or safety or anything else important.

Basically, like this guy (Dave Sevigny).

After Iraq and finially Afghanistan, I think that the US needs to get involved in Mexico and their Drug War, which is turning bloody. There is much we could do to strengthen Mexico politically and economically, but this is /w/ so let's talk about the military aspect. The period of austery that the US military is now facing could be used to our advantage, since weapons and equipment could be supplied to Mexico on the cheap. Most important I think would be the MRAP vehicles that the military is going to quickly find no use for, UAV's, and helicopters. And the experience gained in Afghanistan and Iraq can be applied to the Drug War through the use of SF as advisors or PMC's. I'm not saying that we should get involved directly. But the US created the problem while it is getting worse and we are ignoring it. Any thoughts on other (military and weapons related things) the US could do?

I have an idea, since this is the /w/eapons board, let's talk about what weapons various areas have access to and how they impact the climate of the conflict and the nature of the wars fought there

in africa from what I get, the fighters are much more in the open, and get the drop on government forces often enough, which is in contrast to (previously) occupied iraq and afghanistan

Sarah Palin 14/01/17(Fri)07:56 No. 14884


first off our standing army outnumbers their 5 to 1. while numbers is a huge advantage, they obviously have the home-turf advantage.

A few things they lack:
1. a Main battle tank that come even close to challenging the M1 Abrams, much less a MBT to call their own.
2. Any sort of attack Helicopter that can reliably defeat our Armor.
3. Any reliable means of taking out our carriers, which would undoubtedly anchor offshore once their AA capabilities have been cruise-missled to hell.

I believe their only real option, i we were to fully unleash our military on them, would be to mire us in another long and bloody guerrilla war like the ones in the middle east. Its been proven to work to defeat superpowers.

However Their home advantage will work in their favor quite well. From what i can see there are three main axes of attack we can send our troops through.
1. Ft. Hood -> I35 ->85S down the east coast - would be easier with the amount of materiel and manpower readily available at Hood, coupled with the battle group anchored offshore for CAS and other things.
2. El Paso -> 45S: This would be quite a bit more difficult as this sends our 1st armored Div. through the mountains of Chihuahua. And the rhetoric with tanks is: dont send them through mountains. its stupid.
3. San Diego -> 2/15: this sends our marines through sonora, aided by our pacific fleet.
