Imperial guns don’t function like guns, they’re products meant to arbitrarily increase consumption rates and it shows in how they’re designed. Ironically enough having so many attachments to such a basic as shit rifle only makes it harder for any trained shooter to use the damn thing without damaging any of its pointless features, especially when in firefights. Meanwhile guns from decades ago still function just fine along with vehicles. Really makes you recognize the importance of drones, surveillance and hit and run tactics in modern warfare.

I don't know if the man holding the gun is a real spec ops or a cosplayer with too much money burning his hands, but that config is pretty sensible. A compact gun in .300BLK is roughly analogous to Soviet AS Val and is intended for short-range CT/SWAT/sabotage-reconnaissance work, where typical contact distance is 2 to 150 m and user is expected to fight both outdoors and indoors. Flashlight is for indoors combat, its utility is threefold: it lights some dark hallway, as expected, it dazzles the opponent, and it serves as ultra close range laser sight, central brighter spot in the beam showing point of aim.

Attached is AS Val of Russian internal forces specnaz operator known as k-a-r-d-e-n ( https://k-a-r-d-e-n.livejournal.com/ )

It should be noted you NEVER use a flashlight during the night. It is a homing beacon for enemy fire, your team will be instantly unmasked and hosed with all the firepower enemy got.


>Moreover in the OP pic it's glaring hot sunlight, yet the fucker has a flashlight mounted when all it serves is to unbalance the gun, since you don't need the flashlight in the open fucking desert in daytime. or whatever open space we're seeing here.
It's really more trouble than it's worth to be detaching and reattaching a flashlight to a gun


>the scope
What scope are you talking about?


>I don't know if the man holding the gun is a real spec ops or a cosplayer with too much money burning his hands
He used to be a SERE instructor for the Air Force, but now he's pretty much become a cosplayer


You're right, I was using incorrect termnology; it's an optical sight with some magnification.

>Microwave weapons, also known as high energy radio frequency weapons, are not as uncommon as one might think and desperately hope. Besides entertaining mad Ukrainians in their backyard, they're used to disrupt or destroy digital equipment. It's as simple as aiming a beam at the thing you want to fry. It's also important to remember that energy like this doesn't necessarily need a clear line of sight. It can, for example, work through a wall or even a floor with enough power.

Kreosan are not hohols


"Hohol" is leftypol slang for anyone that doesn't like Russia


Shut up holhol


Funny thing is that during the NATO invasion of Yugoslavia, they used microwaves powered by small generators to trick HARM missiles into missing their SAM units.

People talks a lot about having guns and being armed but I don't see anyone talking about training, organizing and acquiring equipment other than guns and ammo.
Why don't we go camping and pretend to be soldiers in campaign? That has to be better than just shooting at cans.

You could feed the poor with them, if thats makes you feel better.


Alright, organize a meetup. I'm in the Northeast US


That pic is awesome


Voluntarily sign up to participate in imperialist war on the side of the imperialists. Great thinking, that'll really get 'em.


The only useful thing I can figure about them is that they make it harder to identify where the source of gunfire is coming from(assuming the shooter is far away enough from whatever they’re shooting at). I believe this because I’m aware that the Doppler effect would make it obvious to anyone near the shot that someone’s firing even if a suppressor did a good enough job a drowning out the source of the shot and most don’t even do that. The only other reason I can think of for making these is for ear protection but then again why not just wear plugs?

>less noise
>higher muzzle velocity
I can see no downside


Don't they reduce muzzle velocity tho?


they extend the barrel. so no. well engineered ones are a plus accuracy wise. the one downside is higher moment of inertia since you have all that mass at the end of your barrel


Increased recoil compared to good muzzle brake, increased gas venting into the receiver (and in your face, depending on the gun), increased fouling, decreased barrel ventilation.
By insignificant amount - about 2 to 5 m/s, as secondary action of powder gases, when they push the bullet after it left the barrel, is greatly diminished.
>they extend the barrel
Common misconception. Instead of going forward gases are redirected and turbulised, so extension is useless.


>Increased recoil compared to good muzzle brake
aren't muzzle brakes terrible if you have people nearby?
>increased gas venting into the receiver
not a problem with bolt action rifles, which is the point of view I'm coming from
>Instead of going forward gases are redirected and turbulised
compared to a barrel of the same total length, sure. but they're typically added to the end of an existing barrel, and you can't seriously be telling me that gas just venting into the open air provides more acceleration compared to being semi-contained in a suppressor

Do you really believe red dot sights make it easier to aim?


clay pigeons will be the judge of that. I do plan on making a second print with the rails extending further back so as to allow mounting the sight closer to the eyes, giving a larger view

question from a Marxist in training who lives in a third world country where the gun laws are so extreme that it is easier to buy a gun from the narcos than to get a car from the gringos who go to the Wallmark and buy 17 AR15s with milk.

First of all, yes, the 17 AR15 is ironic, but it is undeniable that it is easier for you to get firearms, the question is, what is your position on the position of weapons? It is obvious that the weapons are necessary to keep the class enemies back but under the current context? Also about 3d printed weapons, are they an alternative to not participating in the arms market? I await your response because it really is a topic that makes noise in my brain.

What makes the proletariat special in your view that it does not require class violence to take power, unlike every prior dominated class in history?


What does your "rhizomatic" model offer in terms of practice? If you're not offering even the most basic ideas of what practice would fit your model, then why are you even writing at all? That is the basic point of critique.

Off-topic, but why do you insist on repeating yourself, almost like you're trying to write biblically? It doesn't make your points more impactful.


>taking the bait this hard


As an Pakistani, I feel like I'm the only third-worlder who has more in common with Americans than any other region regarding the role of firearms. They are plentiful, and you can get a license in a few weeks. People buy firearms all the time; however, full-automatics are banned (though people still have them, and no one cares). Gun law debates are never up for debate because there are so many illegally made firearms (mostly AKs and Tokarev pistols) that it would not make a difference if they were banned


Damnit I have to check these trip 5s because this is some damn good bait.

Yeah the L-85 is one of the most garbage assault rifles I've heard of. It's like the early M-16s, but which never got rid of their issues.


It's one of the worst military firearms since WWII, only somewhat surpassed in badness by the INSAS but with even less excuses.
the FAMAS is also neat but has serious problems like the fact that it cannot fire standard NATO ammunition, didn't use standard NATO magazines, and was a mess of parts if it needed to be opened past field strip.

>The story of this video is the US forces being overwhelmed by the yellow hordes, that is the standard propaganda narrative
Yeah because the scenario involves a single carrier group operating in the China sea. Obviously the Chinese are going to have a numerical advantage since they can deploy forces from the mainland.


Is this the simulation where China attacks with aircraft first instead of attacking with missiles first and using aircraft later to finish off survivors?


The aircraft are used to "use up" interception missiles from the US destroyers and cruisers so they will be more vulnerable to the DF-21.


China has enough rockets in the coastal defense system to drown the interceptors with sheer volume of fire. Seems unrealistic.
The US best option is to draw the Chinese outside of their land missile range while bombarding their sea bases on the artificial islands to cut them off.
