Re: Honey Badger: A True Dissipator AR

I had read that back in the day, when guys were experimenting with a rifle-length gas system on a chopped down barrel, they were getting timing issues and other problems with the gas system. Have you noticed anything like this pop up yet?

Re: Talk me out of a Bhp

Do it, man. They're the quintessential 9mm handgun; however I have heard there could be some issues with it being able to handle +P ammo and feed hollowpoints reliably due to the design. So y'know, food for thought on that one.

Re: Firearms Chat 3: #pewpewlife

Time and time again I find the tactically-minded users of ZS to be informative beyond measure. So here I am again, asking about chest rigs; split front, harness, is there a difference? Looking to run 4 rifle mags, maybe 4 pistol mags in front. Not sure if I need that specific setup, or if there's so...

Noob question I know, but what would be the optimal grain bullet to use in a 1/7 twist barrel for initial sighting in? And while I'm at it, what range should I sight in for? What do you intend to shoot out of it normally? Bullets in the 69-77 grain range for srs use. 55gr for casual plinking if not...

Re: Firearms Chat: Stipple that, home edition

So, is moving the front sight base forward for a dissipator build going to be problematic on a light weight upper? Does any metal have to be removed from an already slimmed down barrel? It should be the opposite (for most light-weight profile barrels): If the OD of the barrel under the gas block/FS...

Welp, the extractor snapped off the bolt in my Mosin (shocker, I know). Since it's now effectively a musket, is it feasible at this point to pop in a new one? Since the serial won't match, will I have to do much filing of it? I understand it's not really a "drop in" kind of weapon system, but I gues...

I like how people treat life or death self defense like a game, carefully selecting a variety of weird, impractical ammo like a pokemon lineup, just waiting to be deployed for an improbable situation where they (naturally) will come out on top, so they don't worry about getting killed by making stup...

Re: Mossberg MVP 762

I'm a little confused here, if they're marketing it as a 7.62x51 caliber rifle, it won't be able to safely fire .308 right?
That sounds like a terrible idea for a rifle.

Saw this on another forum, If you are trained, you will get mad at the guys in the video (who caused their own destruction). If you aren't trained.. well, you should be. I hope that this isn't common practice for counter-Narco's in Columbia--otherwise, they are all screwed. http://www.liveleak.com/...
