Recommended Posts

 

More infos about the KSK contract:

- Haenel, Heckler & Koch, Rheinmetall/Steyr Mannlicher and Sig Sauer send in 5 Rifles
-Colt Canada didnt

-LLM which were part of the contract were stripped out of it and were procured separatel. Release of the winning bid in the coming weeks.

-Changes: sturdier Charging Handle, ceracoting in FDE for less heat absorption in hot climates, Slim Handguard, Tool less removal of the picatinny rails at 12 and 6 o´clock and the HKey at 3 and 9, 45 degree saftey (a must have, because of familiarity)
@Sturgeon

Edit:

NOT CONFIRMED NO REPUTABLE SOURCE SO FAR:

If you believe a HKPRO comment quoting Jane`s:

The KSK decision will heavily influence the Bundeswehr contract.

And with the known participants of the KSK contract this could already predict the winner.

 

But again i cant find the Jane`s post that is quoted by the guy. I will try to find the Jane`s Post or a better source.

 

P.S: I WANT A FUCKING Jane`s Subscription

LOL

 

I took one look at him before reading anything actually written in the comments and instantly thought to myself "holy shit LOL could it be more obvious that his wife FUCKS HIM every night not the other way around"

 

It could not be more obvious if he was walking bow legged that he's the catcher not the pitcher in his relationship.

This is bullpup PKP, AFAIK Zenit made a kit to convert normal PKP to bullpup version.

The Russians have a "thing" for really awful bullpup conversions.

   Unlike majoroty of those, this bullpup PKP started as conversion made by SF unit. After that number of PKPs were converted in different units as there is a need for short MG firing 7.62x54R.

On a whim I just looked up the prices of Ruger American Ranch Rifles in 7.62x39 on GunBroker, and it looks like they're clocking in at about $400.

 

So, it's not like this is news, but that price really kind of drives home how obsolete the .30-30 lever gun is. And, before @Donward chimes in about iron sights, let's remember that halfway decent red dot sights (that are tougher and more consistent than the irons on a lot of lever guns!) are available for as low as $25 these days.

 

Here's Ruger's promo video for those not familiar with the x39 Ranch:

Yup. I've said it time and time again that 7.62x39 is a damned good medium game round. 

 

No, I'm not biased. But yes, I grew up popping white tails with a yugo.

      There are many who feel that the 5.56 NATO is a superlative rifle round. Much has been said about larger alternatives to 5.56, such as various 6.5mm and 6.8mm rounds among others. Less has been said about smaller rounds. Off the top of my head, I can recall that there was a German 4.6x36mm round, used in the HK36, and the British 4.85x49mm round. Neither of these rounds managed to gain widespread acceptance. My knowledge of the voodoo that is ballistics is somewhat limited, so I'm uncertain as to whether these failures were caused by flaws with the rounds themselves, or because they were below some lower limit of effective bullet size, beyond which performance decreases rapidly. Could we see a resurgence of these concepts in the future, or do they represent an evolutionary dead-end?
