Hey 7chan, knife fag here. Is Hampton Forge that really bad of a brand for knives? I checked them and they had some pretty bad reviews. Got a three piece set from my friend.

Cutco is top notch quality plus a forever guarantee and free sharpening. no interest payment plans too if you want to go all out or can't really afford it all at once

I have never really got around to getting a decent set of kitchen knives despite my admirable knife and weapon collection. Imo I would probably go for a Victorinox set for around 100$. I find that as long as you steel the knives after every use, You will be good.. Even with store brand kitchen blades.A strop after every steeling would be good too with some green compound.

How's the edges from the factory,OP?

What's your EDC knife?

mine's an opinel. I know it's not tacticool or costs >$200 and made of some super steel, but it does what I need it to.

Mine is a $30 maserin poker. It gets the job done and I love the ergonomics. 440c steel is perhaps the best edc steel out there with superior performance to aus8 and better rust resistance.

I know it is a devisive issue but I have never been sold on the opinel knives. People love them or hate them. Its just pain carbon steel and the lock mechanism fails after a few months of heavy use. Aside from that it is bulky.

I recently came into a Mosin-Nagant in decent condition. Whatever the previous owner had used to lubricate the mechanisms with was some dark brown, amber-ish colored gunk that looked like it was really ready to be cleaned off and replaced. It looked like some sort of very poorly refined oil. I've cleaned the entire mechanism and only about half way through began to wonder if there was a particular point in this gunk.

Now that I've cleaned it off and oiled it down, I've come to the opinion that the bolt is a bit harder to operate than it was before I cleaned it. I'm wondering if maybe this thicker grease was partially to help offset the grinding of the bolt caused by a particularly sturdy spring. So what does /w/ use to oil their Mosin-Nagant to keep the bolt loose?

PS, there's an empty slot for what looks like a rod in the wooden body under the barrel. Was this rod used to force out stuck shells, or did it have some other purpose? How retarded would it be to mount a laser sight in there?

Do not use Windex or other household cleaners. Waste of money. All you are doing is trying to wash away the corrosive salts deposited in the barrel. Boiling water alone will accomplish this.

Yeah, windex is way to dilute to offer more than negligable benefit over hot water

I've read in some reloading manuals that some corrosive salt deposits can get trapped under copper residue from the rounds, and ammonia, being a copper solvent, can remedy this. Hoppes #9 has ammonia in it, so as long as you use water and maybe a little ammonia you're good.

I have the opportunity to buy a NCO Shin-Gunto sword from 1943,
good condition and with serial number matched scabbard.
What would be a good price for it, just so I dont get ripped off?


>>
Sarah Palin 14/06/11(Wed)18:23 No. 14969

Since it seems that nobody is going to answer I'll give it a try. As far as I know Shin-Gunto are nice WW2 memorabilia but they are considered to be quite poor katanas since most of them were machine-made and oil-quenched. If you still want it, from what I've seen, an honest price should be around 1400-2200$
Still, don't take my word for it, do a little research before you shell out major bucks.

What does any body think about getting a PPS-43 parts kit. Most of them cost about 70 dollars which seems to be too cheap. Experience prefered.


>>
Sarah Palin 14/01/17(Fri)07:28 No. 14883

That does seem pretty cheap. I have one of those and i love it.

However, i know that theres some kind of rule out there about the collapsible stock, so i'd make sure to check your local regulations about that.

The one i bought, the stock is permanently folded up over the reciever.

Fun as hell to shoot though.


>>
Sarah Palin 14/04/16(Wed)03:52 No. 14952

A folding stock on a rifle wih a barrel less than 16 inches is considered a short barreled rifle, you would have to do extra paper work with he atf and aquire a title 2 tax stamp. I friend of mine has one of these with the stock pinned making it a pistol (less the 16 inches barrel has to be a pistol or an sbr).

I like to use ammoseek.com to find the cheapest ammo prices. Then from there I compare the shipping rates between sites to decide which site has the lowest price per round.

Also,>>14941
That's bad packaging and service, granted, but does it really matter when it comes to ammo? As long as it's not dented or exposed to moisture, it doesn't really affect the performance. I know a lot of people shit on CTD, but I've seen CTD having some of the lowest prices on firearms (not ammo though).

Sarah Palin 14/04/19(Sat)11:35 No. 14954

go to gunbot.net

they have a shit-ton of website that they pull from and update their price by round list every 90 seconds. Its actually really a badass website.

However it is based off of the individual website, so you'll probably have to register for that particular one, and some of them dont like to deliver to certain states...

a couple of them really don't like california

well hello there! im thinking of buying a gun in dos weekos (handgun) this will be my first handgun and was looking for some suggestions/ answers to a few questions i have.
A.) what are your suggestions for a first gun. im about 150lbs and 5'9 (in b4 manlet. also im trying to spend less than 500 bucks (is it worth it to get a gun for that cheap)
B.) how impractical is it to buy a revolver (that what i want and also how dumb is it to buy something larger than a 9mm i.e .38 or .40 (i am buying this for home/self defense as well as because its fun as fuck to shoot things in my back yard.)
c.) i will be buying this in my homestate (but not where i live currently) my home has almost no gun laws so i can walk in and walk out with whatever semi auto i want as long as i am over 18.. which i am. with this in mind whats the deal with guns going over state lines (i know i can look thsi up but while i have you...) ill be buying it in vermont and then heading back to ny. i do eventually plan on getting a license to conceal and carry.
thanks or fuck you...which ever is pertinent to your reply.
pic related... its the gun i want but obv wont buy

I just got one of these new Bushmaster Carbon 15 carbines (5.57/.223 cal). I only put 30 rounds through it, which isn't much, but it's really nice. It has carbon parts so naturally it's very lightweight. Someone mentioned that it has some Teflon inner parts? I didn't look in to it before I bought it (which was dumb since normally I do, but I just took this guy's word for it) but it allegedly has very good heat distribution. It fired very nicely, no issues so far for the small amount of rounds that I put through it. I rarely hear of people having issues with this gun. So far the worst thing about it is the cheap magazine it comes with, but it hasn't caused any problems for me yet.

I got the one with the cheap red dot scope and have no complaints.

Thoughts on this gun?

Oh I was going to say, the only real drawback with the rifle itself is the rail design. I mean, the optic like I said, that can easily be replaced though, but the rail... I don't know how to explain it. The top rail isn't just part of the upper, it's an aluminum piece that appears to be screwed to the top sort of. It's not a bad gun, it's just not the most high quality. Definitely works though.

Only time I've had it jam was when a buddy of mine put some crappy, old reloaded 5.56 rounds through it. With any store-bought rounds I've never had a jam. He must have had shitty rounds.

I saw. That's an older model c15 which had numerous issues (which is why it earned a bad reputation). I noticed that's actually 9mm. I never said its indestructible. Just because that one did doesn't instantly make them all bad. Of course alloy is more durable but still. It is good considering it's price.
