Steel vs Polymer Anonymous 08/14/2019 (Wed) 05:11:59 No. 11 [Reply]
Let's see what /k/ has to say about this.



- cheap to produce
- lightweight
- doesn't rust


- Lack of weight makes balance feel off
- recoil isn't as well absorbed as steel
- doesn't outlive the owner
- flexing

Steel is better in a vacuum, where you aren't carrying around a heavy fun. But with polymer, by adding a light you get a lot of the weight and recoil mitigation advantages anyways.
sorry we have had issues with people spaming porn pictures
100 mp file limit tho

One of the NEVER-discussed advantages of a gas piston is that you can have your rifle fully loaded (full magazine) and ready to fire while cleaning the gas piston and gas piston tube, thus reducing your vulnerability if it become necessary to clean it in time of duress, because you can still fire it and operate the action one-round-at-a-time if necessary, which is better than a knife and strong language if an enemy is approaching.
So in your scenario, you tear down the rifle to extract the gas system and reassemble the rifle prior to cleaning the piston?

That doesn't seem likely to work reliably, if at all, for an AK. How would the bolt be held in battery if the carrier/piston is out? How would the next round be fed, even manually?

In a more general sense, how often is piston fouling the point of failure to cycle, and even if it were, how often would intentionally reducing the rifle to bolt action be an improvement over the intermittent cyclic action of a fouled gas piston system?

I think 31 is referencing specifically 416 pattern rifles. I'm not completely aware of the field stripping SOP for the 416, but nothing I remember of the rifle requires you to pull out the bolt group to take off the piston.

As 31 describes, a piston system without a piston will act like a standard Direct Impingement AR platform without the bolt cycling (as no gas would strike the bolt-face), causing you to have to use the gun like a bolt-action.

>>31 I agree. Piston guns are really good, keeping most of that gas out of the bolt group and decreases carbon fouling. However, because of how less... "violent", the bolt cycle is, I've seen 416's end up not as reliable in extreme-mud (well out of standard "what the gun should be able to do" keep in mind).

Everything has a positive, and a negative. I for on prefer Direct Impingement for its simplicity mechanically speaking, but I wouldn't hesitate to pick up a 416.

Anyone here ever tried to make a knife or short sword with an angle grinder, working on an old file perhaps?
I have heard of people doing it but I'd be interested in experiences. I want nothing fancy or to sell just a decent blade that gets the job done
I made a knife from the blade of a pair of old garden shears once using a bench grinder. It was ok but wouldn’t hold the best edge and the blade was twisted slightly from the design of the shears. Maybe using a bench grinder would be easier because you can hold the blade to it and move it with greater precision?
Forgot to mention, old files could be a little brittle, maybe a piece of leaf spring?
>Maybe using a bench grinder
I tried a small one which I had access to on a piece of scrap metal and I thought it was quite difficult to work with, handling the piece and controlling how much material was removed. As the metal got thinner it heated up unpredictably fast, often resulting in rapid and sudden degradation of the material. Obviously a matter of experience, I know, still I think I would be better at moving the tool rather than the piece I work with.
Actually I was more successful just using a metal file to make a short knife, although that's not what I would use for a bigger project like a sword or a machete.

>old files could be a little brittle, maybe a piece of leaf spring?
yeah, good point, probably impossible to get the blade to a decent sharpness, however I know some old bayonets are often pretty stiff and not sharp, either. Using a garden shear is pretty neat, though. thanks for the idea.
Sure, whatever works Strelok.
Old gardening tools could be a good and cheap source of reasonable metal.

Mallet Anon 09/06/2019 (Fri) 00:32:02 No. 50 [Reply]
Ever seen a big mallet that just fucking is big, like a big thing and could I use it to cave in skulls of tiny gnomes and fairies?

Are there any 8/k/omnandos here? Anonymous 08/13/2019 (Tue) 10:08:44 No. 3 [Reply] History File history
How did you make it into the bunker?
5 posts omitted.
Not referring to 4chan but an actual site (operatorchanDOTorg).
8ch's onion address lists about 7 bunkers as alternatives since it's still down.
I know but I can't use TOR and Zeronet right now as I won't have access to my computer until like Friday. That's why I made this thread, to see if there are any other methods. BTW any news about when 8ch will be up again?
Nobody knows anything really but it's certainly not going to happen as long as Jim hasn't testified before congress. Dems will want to get him in jail, hoping to somehow make him commit some procedural crime like Mueller did with some of Trump's associates.
I'm happy other /k/omrades have made it neinchan is comfy, just slow. Also no one use endchan it is ran by a commie fag and is most like a alphabet agency operation.

good question

YES, japan is first hand proof, they would not give up to the point of suicideing their whole country. Unless they we 1000% sure that they could not do that, they would have kept on going.
My addendum: So what if they are?

Patrick Henry didn't say "Give me liberty or give me death, UNLESS it's NUKES OMG MOMMMYYYY!!!"

Most people today won't choose liberty over a good wifi connection, let alone liberty over life.
