Yup. It is a back the gently caress up/I still want to shoot you up close device. On rifles, they're generally for face and chest stabbing, specifically prisoner control.

How is that supposed to work, "behave or I'll hit you with the end of my gun"? Is the spectrum of force between awkwardly jabbing someone with the muzzle of a rifle and shooting that person wide enought to justify the existence of these things?

They are so very useless an invention (especially when some of the shittier ones gently caress up doing the job of compensator or flash hider correctly so badly) for 99% of us that it boggles my mind why people put them on their guns. I know a lot of people build guns for looks, but if they're so concerned with "image" they should be concerned that anyone with half a brain knows that unless their job involves "prisoner control in warzones" they end up looking like douchebags.

The above applies to rifles, I suppose, since intentionally adding a standoff device to a pistol (except the CZ bayonet, which is insanely hilarious) is inherently retarded.

Yes. LMT makes one too. (EDIT to say that the one pictured is CMMG's and is their answer to Noveske's Krink. It's to direct all muzzle blast away from the shooter, and has the bonus of rebar slots.)

If you haven't heard the story behind this, it's a good one. Marine Corporal Tony Stein won a posthumous MoH for his bravery. He ran into battle repeatedly drawing enemy fire to kill Japanese machine gun nests on Iwo Jima in WWII. He killed a lot of enemy troops, and rescued or facilitated the rescue of numerous pinned down and wounded US shooters. The weapon is noted as a modified aircraft gun with a BAR bipod and a Garand stock.

Hell of a guy.

I dunno about the barrel and internal parts, but I'll put a rough cost of $1200 on the rest. The body kit is all that is unverifiable so I had to guess it was between 200 and 300, including the rails if they were bolt-ons.

You can get the whole thing on Gunkings.com





Basically allows you to mount an AR buttstock, forearm and grip to your 10/22.

Then of course there is the m249 10/22 (goes to Gun Broker)


In all these cases they spent more on the stock than they did on the base gun.

I'm sorry, you own semi-automatic weapons for "fun" and you're talking about practical? If you took the bayonet off that gun, it's a perfectly fine fun range gun. He attached a bayonet because it will fit -- just like why any of us buy bayonets at all, since none of us will stab a motherfucker.

I can put together 3-4" groups at 100y with my M1 carbine on irons, standing. If you gave me a bipod and a scope I bet I could pull in tighter than that. The US military saw fit to stick night vision scopes on the M1 carbine to create the M3 carbine. What this tells me is that you're morons, and SuperSlant6 is awesome.

We've been making fun of scoped carbines all thread long. Why is this one different?

Because it's not a Mosin SBR or a SKS or a carry handle-mounted 24x on an AR15 or a .22LR with a 40x. It's a medium magnification on a gun that can easily hit out to 100-150y, works fine, was mounted correctly, and isn't bubba-ed. Simply put, that gun is actually pretty practical, especially for range fun.

Also because I like it.

Gtab likes it, that's what's different. Also, the M3 scope was to provide night vision, a function the iron sights don't. The US military didn't see fit to put a scope on an M1 Carbine purely as an aid to aiming.

Most T3s were not given provision for rear sight (and thus had no conventional sights, requiring aiming with the scope). The scope series, beginning with T120 and moving on from there, grew in magnification as time went on. The position of the scope required exclusive use of the crosshairs in the active NV scope. The US used it specifically as an infiltration interdiction weapon since the M1C and M1D handled proper ranged scoped sharpshooting. This means the US put it on the rifle specifically for sharpshooting and improving aiming capabilities. They specifically did so at night, but that doesn't deny the fact that they had confidence in the platform as a lightweight sniping platform within (initially) 135y and (at the end of it's life) out to 150y.

Thanks for playing, though. I also beat you to the "I like it," joke.

Interesting. I had only heard about scoping the M1 in the context of night vision. Weren't only a couple hundred scoped carbines issued, though?

Comparatively? Virtually nil. 811 initial WWII T3s were made (compared to over 6mil M1 platform rifles in general). Many more were made for Korea. 20000 scopesets were made, and it is believed many M1s were field modified given AARs indicating sappers being shot at night at ranges/using tactics consistent with T3s. There were 3000 "official" M3 (T3's official designation) produced, and estimates of upwards of 2000-3000 more "made."

It is important to note their impact. Though only 500 were field at Iwo Jima, they accounted for an estimated 30% of Japanese small arms casualties in the opening days and continued to wreak havoc on their forces throughout the seizure of that island.

Japanese, Koreans, and Vietnamese played similar tactics of night time infiltration. The T3/M3 was used in all three wars to solid effect.

Fun note: M3s are M2s with scope mounts. M2s are select-fire. Mwahaha.

Next the Unique opening in the strike plate allows for pressure to be taken off the oncoming bullet through the bore thus increasing velocity and with the slight weight and lessened pressure reduces recoil by nearly 50%.

...And lastly the Strike Plate portion of the S.P.R.S., situated directly in front of and around the muzzle of the 1911, actually increases the velocity of any round fired.
