Why the stoke of the colt lower over glock?
Just finished my first AR9 pistol build. Happy i went with the colt mag lower over the glock lowers.

No one says they’re not accurate. They’re just bad rifles. The bolt jams, they get WAAAY too hot too fast and a lot were extremely cheaply made.
Remember, Simo Häyhä used a mosin without glass.
I recently got an inexpensive spotters scope and took it to the local pit to play around with. I didn't need it for the distance I was at but wanted to fuck around with it. I also got an adapter to attach my phone to it so that I can take pictures and video, also known as "digiscoping". I mainly use it for watching nature because I go for hikes and to parks more than I go shooting.
The scope was on a tripod about 3 feet away and it still shook like I kicked it from the shot. I honestly don't know if I hit the target or if I just got close enough. There's no noticeable extra hole
This is the mostrosity I was shooting(fite me irl)
This was at 50 yards using 60x on my scope. I was fucking around with my phone's "slow-mo" function but it didn't really slow it much. The target is a 2" round hangin target from Newbold Targets.
ps: yes, this is just a shitpost but I'm getting tired of seeing all of the posts bitching about the admins so figured I'd try to get some happiness out here. Everyone loves modified Mosins an shitposts
In case anyone wants a "cheap" spotters scope setup
Redfield Rampage 20-60x60mm. It's $186 and comes with a small tripod. It's a company owned by Leupold.
Gosky Universal Mount. It's $21 and comes with a universal mount to attach your cellphone to a scope/spotters scope/binocular and a shutter button for phones so you can take pictures and videos from away from the phone and without shaking it.
The quality of the video, including bad framing, is my bad because I was still getting used to the setup. It can do much better than shown in the video.
Who said that they aren’t accurate?
My wheel gun Wednesday is my Ruger Blackhawk in 9mm with an extra 38 cylinder that is swappable. 9mm cowboy guns are fun and recoil is ridiculously easy in such a heavy gun.
How's the accuracy? I've heard that it won't shoot 9mm rounds super well since they're a little smaller than the bore.
This is definitely the most unique and useless build I've ever done.
It's a reproduction of the Colt M231 Port-Firing weapon, which can be mounted in the port of an M3 Bradley Fighting vehicle and be fired from the inside of it. The real M231 is pretty unique in that it only fires in full auto and fires from an open-bolt instead of a closed-bolt. It has no front sight because the actual M231 is used with tracers instead and it would get in the way of the port. (I have an old surplus carry handle ring sight that I plan on using with mine so I can actually aim with it.)
Some of the early models had this telescoping wire-stock that you see here, but most were removed later on because the military didn't want to encourage soldiers from taking the M231's out of the vehicle and also because they weren't very controllable when firing from the shoulder anyways.
Despite it looking like an M231, none of the parts on this are from an actual M231 port gun. The upper and lower come from brownell's, the stock comes from a user on Gunbroker who sells these as kits as well as the custom handguard kit. The barrel is a BCA HBAR. The flashhider, barrel nut assembly, BCG, rear sight ASSY, and charging handle are surplus M16A1 parts. The grip is a placeholder currently that I had on me and will be replaced with a surplus A1 grip eventually. If I manage to get my hands on an M231 side-plate, I plan on having the lower modified to accept the side-plate.
The stock assembly still needs to have some fitting work done on it as well as being refinished. I might contact John Thomas at Retro Arms Works who specializes in RetroAR's and have him refinish it for me.
Ian from Forgotten Weapons did a pretty cool video on the real M231 for those who are interested.
Cool. Forgotten weapons did an episode on this not long ago and it was a transferable for sale iirc.
ETA. Yup, fully transferable for sale :)https://youtu.be/FuZmAtrRsN0
Being a sucker for FDE and the new MHS-flunkout handguns (already have the 5" FDE M&P 9 and I really badly want the M9A3), I found myself wanting a 19X. I've never been a fan of Glock to speak of, I found them uninspiring and bland and the fanbase to be a little on the fanatical side. But then, I handled a Gen 5 and the rest was history.
My first Glock, but probably (definitely) not my last.
If they would sell a regular 19 in that color I’d buy it so fast.
My fiancé finally acquired the Hudson H9. We took it to the range yesterday and put 200 rounds through it. It was very accurate and comfortable to shoot.
My two stamp tuesday Classic and Modern
HK and Sig edition
MPX + SiCo Hybrid + MK25
MP5 + Octane 9 + USP
This is a newly unwrapped GHM9 with an inforce light, topped with a Trijicon MRO. I was gonna get the slow stamp and the folding brace but I pumped the breaks when I saw the telescoping stock modded with a Tailhook. I resumed not caring about the telescoping brace and tailhook when I saw that it cost as much as a Scorpion. I guess I'll wait till they are available in the states with more regularity or I'll try and get the folding stock and mod it to accept the Tailhook. I contemplated putting on a brace adapter and buffer tube but I imagined that would probably look like abomination.
I took this little mamma to the range and it recoils less than the MPX and is lighter, smaller and has the 3 lug. I also ordered the Rugged Obsidian 9 with the 3 lug adapter. #fuckMoney
This looks like the pug of the gun world. Cool though!!
For some reason, that looks funny as hell!
I want one but they don’t appear to be stocked anywhere.
What shotgun was it so I know never to buy one?
Here is my "second" first gun. A Ruger American in .22wmr
Last year, a new shotgun I bought for waterfowl hunting exploded on me the first time I took it to the range. It was my first gun and I missed bird season because of it.
Almost got a replacement shotgun, but since I have all summer to save up for one, I decided to get something I can take out in nice weather to a 100yd range and shoot relatively cheap. I also know a farmer that will let me shoot mourning dove and rabbit on his land.
Another reason I went for the American over a Semi-auto rifle, I am interested in deer hunting eventually, and if I like the Ameircan platform (which I do so far), I can get a second one in a centerfire chambering later on.
Looks great. Your scope height over bore is low so you it should make it really easy for you to holdover shots at game with some practice. What reticle does the scope have?
CZ Scorpion Evo S1 with Tailhook Brace. MRO on top sighted in for 25m
