I figure we should try something new if this is a flop it'll end here nut hopefully it does good
This will be a place for recommending and asking about new guns hopefully this will help get rid of some of the
/k/ recommend me a conceal carry gun
/k/ is this gun any good I'm thinking about getting it
/k/ how much should this cost / is this a good deal?
Maybe it needs a new name already though....
For posting try to be specific for the purpose of it, price range, your location (for laws), what you have and what you want.
I'm looking for a new gun. I have
Ar15, sub2k, 10/22's, a mauser, and ruger american predator (.223)
I'm looking for something new. Considering something in 308 such as m1a, super vepr, ar10
But willing to take recommendations held my first AK today and it was very nice almost bought it the purpose is to have something in semiauto that hits harder than 223 and is not going to break the bank for ammo (no 300 blk) for accuracy I want around 2moa but better = gooder
I live in virginia
Hopefully this isn't a flop but let me know if you think this is a poor idea
If you get a M1A, dont get that crap in your picture. Get a 'Loaded' with at least the tuned trigger kit, NM barrel (NOT stainless), and NM sights. Or save up and buy a SCAR17.
If you dont have much money, look into a Benelli Nova, and get into skeet shooting.
There are numerous better options out there. A fullsize pistol in 9mm should hold 17 rounds MINIMUM. Honestly, you can never go wrong with a Glock19 non-Gen4. And if you look around online, you can get a threaded barrel, so you basically have the velocity of a fullsize handgun in a more comfy package. They usually only cost aroudn $40-50 more than a regular.
looks like a gimmick, but whatever floats your boat.
Forgot to say budget is around 1300 but I would be willing to go up (1500-1800) for something good I definitely don't want to drop scar money though which seems to be around 2500+
I second >>28937331 as far as his advice on the M1A
Norwegian here. I'm gonna get my hunting license this year, but I don't have a clue as to which rifle to get. Also, I'm getting the hunting license so I can buy a rifle and take it down to the range, not to hunt. A friend of mine bought a Remington 700 last year and modded the hell out of it, loads his own rounds and does long range precision shooting with it for fun. This looks really fun, so I want to get into it.
So, for range shooting, something that's relatively easy to mod yourself, easy to use, decent price range, what should I look into? There are a lot of available brands, but I have no idea.
I said other than the cool factor. One point would be getting better accuracy out of a .308 unless we don't care about that. I wasn't challenging OP's choice. I was just asking. Sorry if it came off as a loaded question.
Here's my Commifornia-legal Loaded M1A.
Flash hiders hurt Feinstein's fee fees, so they are a no no. In answer to this, Springfield made a muzzle brake that it puts on all their M1As headed for California. You can also buy it from their website if you like the look of it, plus it supposedly grants a noticeable improvement in the rifle's accuracy.
/k/, I want a bolt action .308. After a couple years in nuggetmode, I want a innawoods-capable gun with the following: <20" barrel, <9lbs unloaded, and versatile scope options. I am intrigued by the Savage, Tikka, and Steyr .308s in particular, but comparable rifles are welcome.
Just picked this bad boy up used for $290 with two full mags of personal defense ammo and a OWB holster. Previous owner says he put 500 through the pipe. How'd I do?
True. I won't be able to buy a gun until after summer so I'll have a lot of time to read up. Now I know a couple of guns to look at though. I gotta ask my friend how much he spent on aftermarket parts for his 700.
My buddy is mostly shooting at about 450 yards with his 700. As far as he told me, when he gets close to 750 yards or so the groupings tend be spread across a 1,5 feet diameter.
I'm probably gonna have to make a compromise between range/accuracy and cost, but if possible 1000 yards would be really fun. Do note that I've never shot anything but a 22 though, lol.
http://www.ruger.com/products/gunsiteScoutRifle/models.html might be up your alley
http://cz-usa.com/product/cz-557-carbine-30-06-walnut-stock-fixed-magazine-iron-sights/ also does things to my peepee but I'm left handed so fuck me right?
308 will be a big step. 22-250 is a super speed 22 not much recoil
243 is not much recoil and can reach out pretty far it's a common round but don't expect to punch more than paper past. 243 is a solid overall gun
So I recommended 308 before but consider 243 instead if this is your first time with anything larger than 22
Remington 700 is a great starting place. Proven performance, tons of aftermarket parts, and it doesn't have a massive sticker shock. There's a reason why it's still one of the most popular bolt action rifles to this day.
Past 1000 yards
Some people hunt coyotes in Montana out to 1000+ with 243
My uncle (he's a big big Hunter in Montana) claims to have hit and killed them close to a mile but also said it took a lot of luck and a good number of bullets
He works for the forest service so I believe his range estimate
>There's a reason why it's still one of the most popular bolt action rifles to this day.
Because Americans are dumb enough to think "the military uses it, it must be good"
When 700s in the military are actually about 3-4k
Well, I'm probably not gonna hunt with it at all, so that's not much of a factor for me. I'm taking this up as a hobby. I gotta say, after having started to look into guns just a tiny bit, I kinda understand the obsession Americans have over them. Not the whole self defense thing, but the technical stuff in and of itself is super interesting.
I'm definitely gonna look at the 700 in comparison to the T3, see what I end up with.
Ooh, if I went with a more scout-y build this would be able to do stripper clips, which is nifty
>Own An AR with a flash hider
Yes, and you have a bullet button. If the M1A had a flash hider it would need a bullet button as well, which defeats the entire point of having an M1A in California (not to mention they don't exist I don't think).
