    WWII Weapons Picture Thread

    Glad I'm not the only one who went for the King Arms Thompson comedy load out. Was asked to be the team leader for a themed game we were holding and decided to follow the words of my old Scoutmaster: "What's worth doing is worth overdoing"

    Schnitzel with noodles - what made you smile today?

    The internet (or all least my use of it) seems unable to tell me if what you are referring to is the same as what we know as Pork Rinds or Chicharrones. Basically a Funyun made of "meat". So I am unable to verify weirdness.

    WE AKS-74UN First Impressions (Pic heavy)

    I'm somewhat interested in making a gas blowback version of one of these: https://www.wgcshop.com/products?search_From=searchBrand&item=el-aimr-aeg-platinum-version&search=special&rs=searchBrand&catid=&cat=&view_choice=b WGC also sells the AEG front https://www.wgcshop.com/products?search_From=searchBrand&item=e-l-r-outer-barrel-assembly&search=special&rs=searchBrand&catid=&cat=&view_choice=a Anyone know how feasible this is, starting with a WE 74U? Don't have a mill or lathe, so it would be hand tools and Dremil. Thoughts?

    Moved quite a bit south where it is warmer. And got out on a motorcycle for the first time since August when I crashed mine and broke my wrist. Didn't die and didn't crash my buddy's bike. So, victory.

    I think that same Facebook post mentioned the same time frame for the Thompson

    WE G3

    I'm hoping for an SBS/WE3SD style one that I don't have to convert. But I'm also on board with the WE3K. I'm figuring that any regular version will be easy to convert to wood if they don't release that variant

    My eye! Sweet Jesus, Ouch!

    I thought you could set your time zone somewhere in your profile.

    https://screaming-banshee.com Was contemplating this for my F800GS, but haven't quite gotten around to it yet. So I have no personal experience and no idea how they deal with international orders.

    I think they just introduced key characters earlier, but don't think it is terribly far off the books yet. I think they're just inserting characters into places they could be but weren't described in depth in the books (things that get mentioned as having happened in the books get depicted in the show). I'm enjoying it thus far. Edit: what i meant to add was that it actually tries to do space right. Actual orbital mechanics and g forces and whatnot. Which is very rare in space Sci Fi.

    Pictures of you in the field or at a game

    A few of my less serious moments (although those who know me would probably wonder if and when my more serious moments actually happen)

    Glock Picture Thread

    Probably not the case, but I've had issues with hi caps where the outer barrel rotates slightly so the bit that sticks down along the side of the hop up chamber doesn't allow it to seat properly. But that should just be the barrel and shouldn't affect the slide. Never mind.

    I was attempting to make a joke about Trump's repeated statements that "we" will build a wall between the US and Mexico and the Mexicans were going to pay for it. And then build a corollary to your "proposed" re-acquisition of the US.

    I'm unsure as to how "we" will build a wall between the US and the UK, and make you guys pay for it. But, darn it, we will find a way.

    1911 Picture Thread

    Yes. Just a tiny bit of filing on the forward horizontal part Edit, so as not to double post: Wolf, investigate trigger over travel. I had some grip safety issues similar to what you describe when the trigger was traveling too far. Went away after I added my trigger spacer.

    1911 Picture Thread

    I ended up solving the Detonics/Kimber barrel issue with less than 10 seconds of filing of the barrel. Appears to work now. Going to order a whole bunch of bits to finish it off. Especially a steel hammer. As the stock Chinese pot metal hammer is looking in quite rough shape despite me only hand cycling it, and firing about 1 mag through it. Wolf, for a lot of helpful information on the Mafioso kit, see the thread I linked to in my earlier post.
