I really like the HERA gear. If ar57 ever starts production again im grabbing an upper so i can swap this back and forth between 223 and 5.7.

Weight beats all basically from when i paid attention. If you could have the plastic clamshell from a pair of headphones as a barrel the wwsd rifles would use it

did the inrange dudes test like 6 different brands of pencil barrels before settling on faxon? what was their criteria? i've only seen part of their "stress test" video and the groups didn't look impressive with the ammo they shot.

Pretty sure they had settled on faxon before the project started because they have liked the company and done Q&As about the barrel making process but i didn't follow closely and could be wrong

Tbf faxon may have been the only choice if your starting point is " this barrel has to be pencil profile and the only decision to make is how long". I however dont fire any of my (modern) guns little enough that a pencil wouldnt make an uncomfortable amount of heat. I managed to make my Tikka barrel uncomfortably warm a couple times from putting rounds through it. I want a superheavy barrel for my rdb because if i fire that thing im putting 80+ rounds through it in 10 minutes unless i break the firing pin.

The gamer comparison is apt i think. These things are minmaxed for the 2gun that Karl runs in Tucson where they fire less than 30 rounds in a stage normally judging from the vids ive seen. So yeah its what stoner would do, if he was building the ar15 for short endurance competition stuff where youre hauling around 20 pound weights and poo poo and almost every ounce you can shave off without skeletonizing and getting dust into it matters. I think when they talk about "we made this choice because of what someone would prefer in the field" is more them justifying to themselves a base level assumption theyve made. They havent really put much thought into endurance of parts if theyre popping off multiple mags as fast as possible for suppression in winter of the ardenne as far as i can tell. What kind of warping does that quick heating and then back to horrid cold do to one of these pencil barrels?

There are also their assumptions on what a "professional soldier" in the current era is like that reading gip makes me question heavily. The idiot threads exist for a reason. One of the notable stories was a command decision to look for a beretta dropped out of a blackhawk at night using a pair of little birds that ended with the little birds colliding and killing the crews. These guns have to be that level of idiot proof. Ian mentions frequently that you have to choose between weight and reliability and while Ian has been in a couple of the p&s gun nerd episodes i think they made this more as a wwsd for a general basic competition rifle than a general service rifle.

Maybe they address some of that better in more of the wwsd videos after i stopped watching the series but the entire project after a while was way more indepth about a gun that interests me to the level that ar15s do. Id be way more interested in them wwsding the scar H or Ak

Seriously. Spend $100 on a light and dont shoot your family and friends. Get a TLR1hl and you can use it on a pistol or a rifle.

No family just me and the dog but i will get a light. Just got laid off but as soon as i can finish building it will be trijicon reflex sight, light, then buis

A rifle for home defense seems a little curious to me. I use a handgun with JHP and a separate Surefire flashlight. Don't like the idea of necessarily having to point the gun at someone/something to illuminate them.

But home intruders aren't high on my list of concerns. Live in a decent neighborhood and I've got a big dog.

Its a 10.5 inch 9x25 ar pistol. The complex started making a real slide the last 6 months and 9x25 thinks 3a is cute

You see when a mommy 9mm round and a daddy 10mm round love each other very much...

Im also getting a better muzzle device later but that can wait until i get everything else. The reflex is much more important atm but that will wait until i am working again. I got a solid severance package but i have a solid pistol until im working again so i'm saving for now

There was a thread from someone who worked for a dice company and grogs came out of the woodwork to ask what kind of statistically relevant testing theyre were doing on these funky color d&d dice to ensure their fairness and were PISSED the company was basically just a reseller and was doing none

Captain Log posted:

How would...how does fairness testing dice work? I'm confused. If they aren't weighted what's the problem?

How precisley they were cast/ any bubbles in the material stuff like that. Maybe the 3 panel of your d20 is a 10th of a millimeter too high compared to the other panels. Maybe that gives it a tendency to roll more with the 3 panel being on bottom and making the corresponding reverse panel up more likely by .37%. It was NUTS man how offended people were getting

Isnt the cmmg stuff radial instead of roller delayed blowback? So more energy gets eaten up in forcing the moving parts through the corkscrew than with just slamming back as soon as the pressure is low enough for the rollers to disengage?

It's using a lot of the toys they didnt use in district 9 to make a new era short circuit. It's not terrible and a better use of your time than episode 7 or 8 of starwars. Tbf ep 8 was so terrible i didn't bother seeing 9

Stripped is some assembly required, complete is slap an upper on it, 80% is so some drilling then some assembly required. If is says its a lower kit its probably a stripped lower with the assembly parts you need

Did we ever decide what was more obnoxious to shoot? The scar or my jungle enfield? The scar was loud but the enfield had that dumb 70 year old rubber brick on the end. Also we need to compare it to the 9x25 next time

If you're asking if the MAP is breaking some consumer protection law... pretty sure it's not. I see MAPs all the time on TVs and Large Appliances (and also some of the creative ways certain Merchants try to get around them), so without having done any legal research I'm pretty sure they're completely legal as long as they aren't (caught) cooperatively pricing MAPs with other competing manufacturers to effectively do price fixing.

Ah ok.it seemed to me personally MAPs should be in violation of price fixing but I am not a lawyer and also american capitalism is uniquely...loopholey
