  1. Military Weapons Forum
    What is your SHTF last resort rifle and ammo? At the back of my ammunition storage closet, on the bottom shelf, are two ammo cans filled with 7.62x39. More commonly used calibers are towards the front of the closet - 223 Remington, 9mm, 45acp, 22 long rifle, 30-30 Winchester, 308 Winchester...

    Here's the situation: I bought a Saiga .308 years ago and did the conversion to move the FCG forward. I also changed the furniture around. I have only 8 magazines (8-rd up to 25-round, polymer and CSS Specs). Those damn mags are expensive! I wanted an RPK-style rifle with the 30-caliber punch...

    ReadyMan. A community, founded by U.S. Special Operations Forces veterans and skilled outdoorsmen. Bald guy in the video is former Green Beret IF i remember correctly, is he correct in saying the M16/M4 isn't as good a weapon? Any former military members here agree with him?

    Molot Releases the Multi-Caliber Vepr Rifle (VPO-302) This seems pretty interesting.... http://www.thefirearmblog.com/blog/2018/03/12/molot-releases-the-multi-caliber-vepr-rifle-vpo-302/

    I subscribe to the the classicfirearms.com mailing list. February 8, 2017 I got an email from them. Inside the email there was a Kel-Tec rifle listed for $1,599.99. Surely this was a misprint? I clicked the link and sure enough, the Kel-Tec Rifle Forward Ejecting Bullpup, or RFB 7.62 NATO...

    My friend sent me a new SAR 2. I say new because he purchased it NIB circa 2003 (The date on the front trunion is 2002). He NEVER fired it and because he knew I love AK's, he sent it (and 5 30 rnd mags) to me. I took it straight to my shop and began..... Chucked it in the lathe and thread...

    I've had a Chinese Sks with detachable mags in a polymer stock for a few years now. My only gripe is that its a bit longer than I would prefer. I recently came across a bullpup stock conversion kit that I thought looked pretty cool. It also knocks about 1ft. off the total length of the rifle...

    AK 47 for SHTF apocalyptic terror and mayhem and what not. While I served with the mighty AR and love it, I am going to change my primary to an AK. 1. It's just cheaper to train with. Ammo is half the cost (and I reload) 2. It's heartier in the field. I am disciplined with field cleaning...

    Question for everyone. I have a wasr10 and a sks and about 4000 rounds of ammo for them. My question is should I sell them to buy another ar15 and or ammo. I already have 3 ars with optics. I also have plenty of shotguns pistols bolt action rifles and ammo for them. I never shoot the ak or...

    Brought this home last night. I think I scored on it, but of course some reassurance is always nice. Did I get a good one or junk?

    Besides the magpul furniture, I am interested in how well the rifle performs. http://palmettostatearmory.com/index.php/psa-ak47-moe.html Magpul furniture is ugly on an AK-47. Why change perfection? The AK is fine like it is, why put all the fancy stuff on it? That is like putting modern...

    Between the 7.62x39, 300 AAC Blackout, or 30-30 Winchester, which one would be best suited for short range hunting in a post-shtf / teotwawki world? There is a small patch of woods on my property that deer pass through. If I were to set up a deer stand we are talking about a 50 - 75 yard shot...

    So I was attempting to replace the stock on my Arsenal SGL 21 with an East German wire folder and I found the rear trunnion's screw was so tight that I ended up stripping it, unable to remove the original stock. I've tried a rubber band, steel wool, drilling a new slot, super glue with another...

    Hi, someone is offering me 1,000 rounds of China Sport ammo for $460. He claims it's copper washed, brass cased, steel core. He tried to pull a bullet and cut it open to see but he crushed it and now can't tell if it's steel core or not. The online info for China Sport seems all over the...

    All, saw this rifle at the LGS the other day. Comes with a sig optic and seems pretty simple to takedown. Caught my attention because it's chambered in 7.62x39. I've read alot of reviews that seem to be adverse to the first generation of these rifles. However it seems that they've addressed...

    So I'm looking to finally get an AK-47. It's down to three options: A Saiga AK conversion for $800. It comes with eleven mags but they had their tabs shaved down a little to fit the mag well. The front trunnion was drilled and tapped and a bullet catch was installed to feed AK mags, so I...

    The video is 13 minutes and an interesting side by side comparison of 7.62, 5.56, AAC 300 and finally 5.45. Note that the 300 Blackout had a short barreled rifle which likely caused the failure. Enjoy
