Time for some fresh Luger porn as served up by Gun Jesus. He visited the fellow who custom builds new Lugers and reviewed a 1 of 100 Abercrombie & Fitch contract Luger built with Swiss target barrels. The story behind this run of pistols is very unique and well worth watching. As Bill Cosby used to say "If you're not careful you just might learn something."

People forget, or never knew, that abercrombie use to be an actual outfitter before devolving into the creepy outlet at the mall.

I have a .410 SxS Antonio Zoli Abercrombie at my shop, that the person consigning it wants way too much for.
The stock has been cut down, which is a shame, but they at least did a nice job of it.

That's the common life cycle of an outfitter. They start out producing/selling small batches of high-quality goods for high prices, when they reach a certain point of success they reduce quality, increase quantity and branch out into mass-market crap. If they entirely throw away their exclusive image they devolve into just another shop at the mall, a shadow of their former selves.

If anything is killing off brick and mortar retailing, it's Amazon. Just last week I had to order parts for my car and Amazon's suppliers shipped free in 4 days for half the price local car part shops offered. If you shop enough and pay for Prime shipping, that can be worth the yearly price for membership. Retail is hard pressed to compete no matter what corners they cut or who they get their items from.

Now if only we could make it legal for Amazon to sell and ship guns directly...

Ya, and while the RAS doesn't feel much heavier than the round handguard on it's own it is enough to make a noticeable difference in balance of the rifle.
I am kinda tempted to get an A2 upper but I know if I do then I'll have to build a whole new rifle for it, get more ammo and mags to feed it, probably find an Aimpoint for the A4 and so on and so on...

I think it's a sign I live in a high-level area. Also is an M65 parka, not a 51. They're pretty much identical except the 51 has a smaller built-in hood like the desert night camo parka which uses the same cut. The M65 only has the button-on hood. Originally both parkas had an alpaca wool liner but that was later replaced with a synthetic pile liner which is what this one has. The nylon liners for the M65 field jacket and night camo parka will also fit.

The following news is /k/ enough to warrant posting it here instead of starting a separate thread.

Three days ago, Ian of Forgotten Weapons chose to stick his foot into the YouTube wars. He announced that he's working with Jörg Sprave of The Slingshot Channel in organizing a legal push against YouTube's policy of refusing to provide formal published rules for creating content. This can be done in the EU due to their legal situation over there.

Jörg Sprave is more than a backyard engineer. He's formed a YouTube creators union in Germany and has found a legal partner with deep pockets who earnestly desire to make YT be the partner they claim to be with creators.

My gut instinct is that this won't turn out well for content creators no matter how many law firms the Germans can organize. It may also be the end of Forgotten Weapons and The Slingshot Channel on YT. Ian has quietly suggested he's already organizing a move away from hosting his work on YT but is being very low key to keep from pissing away what little good will he still has with Alphabet.

Godspeed to Ian and Jörg!

Swords are fun. Mine is also an officer's sword. There is also an NCO's sword but the officer's model is far more common. Here in the US Marines and Cavalry units are pretty much the only ones who bother with swords at all and of course Cav also do the stetsons, spurs, scarfs etc. Which I find amusing because, due to what amounts to military gerrymandering my unit would switch between being classed as Mechanized Infantry who have a fierce disdain for such accessorizing and Cav who embrace it and that along with all the organizational changes that come with it never failed to offend the saltier NCO's.

The most recent occurrence of this change also saw my unit, part of the Pennsylvania National Guard made part of 3rd Squadron, 278th Armored Cavalry Regiment Tennessee National Guard. Which pissed-off a lot people because not only did it require a reclass and reorganization but also required changing unit patches from the PANG's keystone insignia to... Whatever the 278th's unit insignia is meant to be.

Ian stated he's not relying on YT monitazaion. I think he said he's using Patreon as well in the linked video and doing well enough to have bought a new home. Like most other content creators, he's come to the end of the road with playing games with YT and just wants them to play fair by publishing the rules creators need to abide by.

The history is what makes me interested in BP, there is also a lot of tinkering involved which makes it even better
However, the .22 is a must have in any hunting focused arsenal since there are some situations where a shotgun is too powerful or loud
Plus i'd get some experience on rifles so the transition to large caliber rifles isn't that bad if i decide to join the deer/moose section of the hunting club

Yes indeed, I got my 1858 due to my love of Civil War Cavalry. My favorite .22 is my Winchester 94/22, is lever action, shoots .22 short, long and long rifle, is very accurate and is a takedown. Unfortunately they've been out of production for a good while, I believe Ithaca and Henry make similar guns though.

Of course there's also the Ruger 10/22, the Remington 597 and Savage makes some excellent bolt-actions as well.

Oh, and if you want a BP gun with a stock there is a cattleman's carbine version of the Remington 1858. That would be adequate for hunting too.

Faggot McFagginsCountry code: blank.gif, country type: ponyflag, valid: 1 42094885

>>42094867
A lever action .22 would be pretty cool, sadly they are few and far between around here because bolt actions are the thing in .22's around here, so most likely i'll be getting a TOZ or a Sako
A semi would be more functional but it's gotten harder to get a license for a semi thanks to the EU

File: 1566090862270.png (65.92 KB, 571x570, Pioneer Pistol.png)

So after casting another 100 or so .454 balls yesterday and looking at all the lead I still have I had the thought that I'm gonna need more BP guns to shoot it all. It was about then I remembered a Traditions .45 Pioneer Pistol kit I got about a decade or so ago that I never finished because it required more hand-fitting than I felt comfortable trying to tackle back then. The sight dovetails were too shallow and narrow, the sights were made of some mystery metal that were marred more by my brass punch than vise versa, the hammer was canted and so wouldn't strike the cap true and the trigger bar would slip off the sear and jam the whole thing up. This kit seems to be long out of production now and can't say I'm terribly surprised. I got it on clearance at my LGS for about $50.

Well I dug it up and am now working on getting it working. I put the files to the sights and dovetails and got them installed successfully, I blued the barrel and applied linseed oil to the stock, once the stock is dry I'll work on the lock fitment and if that is successful I might even have a go at shooting it. It does seem to use a larger percussion cap than the 1858 though so I'm gonna have to track those down.

>>42095033

Probably.

So I dug up a big box of assorted shotgun shells That were given to me years back, they had gone through a flood and were all corroded so I cut them open harvested the shot and cast another 5 pounds of lead from them so now I have ~14.5 pounds in ingots. I think I'm going to get 00 buckshot and 12G slug molds too.

Here's the Pioneer Pistol assembled. I'm really pleased with how the finish turned out. I had stained the stock back when I first got and the linseed oil really darkened it up. I might wait a week or two polish it up with some 600 grit sandpaper and then apply another coat of oil.

The barrel is pretty nice too, it had some surface rust on it and rather than remove it completely I just put the wire brush wheel to it and then dabbed it with cold blue solution thus giving a faux antiqued patina. I think I have the sear and trigger bar squared away so all that's left is to get the hammer straightened out.

Those things always fall into the uncanny valley for me. There's just something off about the dimensions.

Also I got the Pioneer Pistol ready to fire. I had to inlet the stock a fair bit under the barrel tang to get the hammer to strike the nipple true. I also polished the sear and trigger bar. Gonna go shoot it later if the weather holds.
I was originally motivated to get it put together because of the dearth of lead I've accumulated for my .44, well it turns out the pioneer pistol, a .45, takes a .440 ball while my Remington .44 uses a .454 this is of course because the muzzleloader requires the balls to be patched while the balls for the revolver are pressed directly into the cylinder. So I got a box of Hornady .440 and will be ordering a mold to make more. Also going to get a 12 gauge slug mold. A few 1 ounce slugs ought to eat up some of those ingots.

You can use a wire collapsible stock with the reverse stretch, though, and to me, that makes all the difference, just because I like it that way.
