Curious, are most gun owner super-anal about keeping all them scratches of their guns? I made the mistake of shooting my friends pistol, then placing on the "concrete table".

Don't care about the scratches.

If the damage only cosmetic - gently caress it.

Now that really depends on the condition of the gun you have. Scratching a really pristine gun is like scratching a new car, it doesn't really matter functionally, but it still hurts.

But i don't care about pristine safe-queens. This is like worrying about scratches and dings on a wrench. All my guns are for shooting, i would sell them otherwise.

Didn't care much about scratches on my cars either.


But if you collect guns, then it's whole another story.

Not cheap, but they sell a thread-on suppressor too that fits other 12 gauges (or a Saiga you already have) for about $900. If you live in a state that allows it, I don't see any reason not to fit a silencer to a gun you'd probably be using inside without hearing protection.

Try to maneuver that thing indoors.

Second question, on the Glock 32 (19 sized frame) the gen 3 has thumb and finger grooves. This makes the Magpul high tang ( :bustem: ) grip very uncomfortable and akward to use. Should I just modify that style of grip to fit into the grooves or is there a more appropriate style of grip to use?


Ignore the grooves. Grip it as high as possible.

Hey, question for the Euro goons, specifically the Germans in the crowd:

What are German laws regarding purchasing firearms accessories? I've been trying to get some extra TOZ-78 magazines in the US for years now (I lost one at a range a while ago, and want to replace it plus get some extras), and I found some here. Do you need to have a firearms permit or anything to buy accessories like magazines, or (should) this just be a cash and carry sort of thing?

You can even buy AR lowers and nobody will care.

You need permits only to buy barrels, bolts/slides, pistol/revolver frames, suppressors (except ones marked as "for airguns"), ammo and powder.

Edit: Holy poo poo, 1 Euro. They really want to get rid of it!

My rear AK sight seems to be a bit canted. When looking directly down the rear and its groove, it points at the left hand part of the sight protector. It's a pain in my rear end since my front sight is mostly to the right, and the rear sight groove is getting in the way of the sight picture.

Is there any way to reset or alter the left-right angle in which the rear sight leaf sits? It's one of those Bulgarian 5.45 AKs from Centerfire.

It's more likely that your front sight post is canted, or the whole barrel assembly. I think a gunsmith can fix it.
And there is another solution - get a RPK rear sight with windage adjustment.

Hey, quick question for any other German speaking goons or anyone who happens to know a bunch about HKs (looking at you Automator):

So I've been eyeballing the various SMGs that the German cops have been carrying around the subways, train stations, important buildings, etc since everyone here started freaking out back in November about an "imminent terrorist attack" on Berlin. MP5s loving EVERYWHERE.

Anyways, looking at the selectors, I've noticed that they read S-E-F. S(icher) = Safety and E(inzelfeuer) = single shot is clear enough, but I just can't puzzle out what the F stands for. All of the old school (WWII era) German full autos I've seen tend to be in a S-E-D pattern where D(auerfeuer) = "continuous fire."

I'm also kind of wondering when that changed over. Part of me thinks it might have something to do with W. Germans not wanting to stamp SED on their guns, what with that being the party initials of the East German state party, but that's just rampant speculation based on something that makes me chuckle.

Cyrano4747 posted:

Ahhhhhh. Awesome, thanks.

So is there any substantial difference these days between Feuerstoss and Dauerfeuer? Feuerstoss seems like it would imply burst fire, but then you see the SEF packs on just about every HK out there, and I can't think of ever seeing an SED one.

As far as i know there is no SED trigger group.
And Feuerstoss means full auto. Maybe they are implying that you should fire controlled bursts if shooting full auto.

Limited burst trigger groups all have numbers or pictographs.

I have a question about the M4 and the collapsing stock. M4's with collapsing stocks are the only ones you can find in Finland and I want a field stock myself. I hear the collapsing stocks are desireable in america and fetch a pretty price, I was wondering if it would be legally possible to sell it to an american? I know there are no legal issues selling a stock from this side of the puddle.

I was told by an american that one would need an import permit in america but it would be free, from the dept. of commerce I think. Any confirmation or denial of this would be nice to have. Also a second question about possible 922r violations, if you put this stock on a gun thats one part away from violating 922r, would putting this part on take it over the edge?

Sell that poo poo to Germany. All the AR related stuff costs a$$rape here, so you'll get definitely more from it. And no customs fuckery.

I've been shooting my pistols a lot lately and I have a porblem. I am pretty confident with my Beretta 92 when I shoot and get decent groupings. Same thing with my LCP. However, I am always consistently pulling left with my glock 19. I have about 1000 rounds through the thing and I am coming up for a loss as to how I can make shots with the Beretta that I pull left with the Glock. Should I just adjust the sights to compensate for my pulling it left? How is it possible I am dead on with my other pistols and leftarded with the glock?

Here's another great dry firing exercise. Position yourself in front of a white wall, it should be uniform white to grey, without texture. Bring your pistol up, focus on front sight, pull the trigger. The front sight should not move. Do it like 15 minutes a day.

Do not gently caress around with the sights.
