I had a bunch of parts laying around and got a great deal on a 14.5″ barrel, so I made this. I took an A2 birdcage and turned down the diameter of the wrench flat area so that it would fit under the front sight base. This also hid the pin and weld of the flash hider quite nicely. Now I have a snub nosed Dissipator. Enjoy:
My carbine Scarlett got a significant upgrade the other day. I purchased one of my shop’s super thin keymod rail system and went about overhauling my upper. Here she is:
This brings the overall weight of my carbine to 6.15 lbs. I got her sighted in and checked for proper functioning yesterday with my son. We tried out my new steel target and also annihilated some Pomello fruits, lots of fun.
Borrowing this from Steve at TFB.
A Russian inventor has developed an eighty round 9x18mm magazine for the Makarov PM pistol. Hewrites (in Russian) that the Makarov is still in use by police in Russia not because they cannot afford new pistols but because the Makarov is genuinely loved. He says the problem with them is that standard magazine only holds eight rounds and extended magazines only hold up 12 rounds. Twelve rounds is not a lot by todays standards, especially when you consider that the 9x18mm is about 30% less powerful than a 9x19mm NATO. His solution was to develop a drum magazine that holds eighty rounds.
Well, I decided to try my hand at a little gun porn worthy of the paint job that it has. Here are some more pics of the Tokarev and the matching Kydex holster I made for it.
I know, the belt loops are really intricate, but they work. I plan on running this at the handgun steel match next weekend, hopefully pictures to follow.
I got my 1953 Romanian TTC Cerakoted. The bluing was worn and uneven, the Kydex holster I made for it was rubbing the finish off, and it was free. Working at the gun shop has its perks. Some will say that I ruined a history piece, but I am happy with it, it’s mine to do with as I please. Enjoy the pics.
George Hill, the Ogre, shares his point of view on Kel-Tec.
I agree with a lot of what he says, but I must disagree on a few things. Keep the fold-ability of the Sub2K, and I think the stock on the SU-16 is great as an underfolder, it keeps the folded package nice and slim for easy storage. These rifles were made to be stored a lot and shot very little, not the other way around. They are backpacking rifles, not fighting guns so much. My 2 cents….
