Assorted bullpups

The main appeal of bullpups: balance! K&M17 in .308 (prototype).

IWI Tavor 5.56mm.

Keltec RFB .308 with AAC 762SDN-6 sound suppressor.

Father-daughter, sniper-spotter.

The optic is a 6-24x Lucid L5 mounted on a QD mount meant for an AR15. As a results, it sits too high but worked well enough for practicing field positions. The young lady is 15 and a three-gun competitor in training.

Or, in this case, the other way — the more experienced shooter spots for the novice.

Coonan .357 Compact

Originally published at VolkStudio Blog. You can comment here or there.

Regular 5″ Coonan autopistol may be concussive and flashy, but it’s a bit large for a small-framed person to wear daily. This compact 4″ version is even louder, brighter in the muzzle flash — and delivers a nice .357Mag punch.

Accurate and reliable, this rifle really grew on me…and the same thing happened to Sarah. she loves her little lever action.

What I like about the upcoming Keltec RDB

Originally published at VolkStudio Blog. You can comment here or there.

Bottom ejection is left and right hand compatible. Felt recoil is extremely low without a compensator — which makes me really wonder about the concussive muzzle brake installed on this demo gun. Great trigger, reversible charging handle, excellent accuracy. 1-6x scope is a good fit for the cartridge.

It’s a pre-production gun, so I am still waiting for minor refinements of the safety lever, magazine release and sling attachments. But it’s nice to see very functional test guns out at public events, in this case the Bullpup Conference at Rockcastle Shooting Center.

Flashy ammo

Originally published at VolkStudio Blog. You can comment here or there.

PMC rifle ammunition is pretty flashy to begin with. This picture shows shot three or four in a sequence of rapid fire. By then, the build-up of hot gas and unburned powder particles caused a brighter muzzle flame than before.

The rifle is PWS Mk.2 piston .308 with a Gemtech suppressor. The shooter is Yih-Chau Cheng, Oakland Gun Rights Examiner.

A hypothetical situation for pro-life people

Originally published at VolkStudio Blog. You can comment here or there.

If you were under attack by a pregnant woman and had to choose between dying or using deadly force in self-defense, which would you choose? If you would choose self-defense, how do you reconcile harming the fetus to save your life with putting the fetus first when the life of the mother is on the line for medical or other reasons?

Inland M1 carbines back in production.

Originally published at VolkStudio Blog. You can comment here or there.

Inland Manufacturing is once again making M1 carbines done right: ladder sights with proper detents, round bolts, good reliability and accuracy. Had a fun shoot with them. They even fed Hornady red tip defense ammo which my own carbine won’t feed. Inland is also making M1911A1 pistols. I got to plink with one at a 1/2 size steel silhouette and 100% hits at 35 yards were pretty easy.

Unwinding between bouts of work

My tech support is in town.

Ingram 45ACp submachine gun with a home-made (properly tax stamped) Scionics-type silencer. No usable sights (needs a red dot) but can be point shot fairly well out to 35-40 yards.

I really like vz58 in .223

Originally published at VolkStudio Blog. You can comment here or there.

While 7.62×39 version is cute, tiny and pretty punchy, the .223 is more of an all-around fighting rifle. Using the same barrel blank as the 7.62, the 5.56mm version is more accurate, heats up slower and has less recoil. In fact, with the loud but effective muzzle brake, recoil is closer to a semi-auto 22wmr than to other centerfire rifles. I haven’t scopes this one yet (that would require a stock with a riser), but even irons provide less than 3MOA vs. 5MOA of the 7.62 variant (again, with iron sights). In the near future, I will have to compare the efficiency of the AR15 magazines vs. using the original rock and lock mags without the adapter.

Rapid fire

Steve from Shootsteel.com is running his AR. PWS FSC muzzle brake is loud but effective. The scope is Weaver 1.5-6x. I shot this rifle today as well, it worked as well off-hand as supported.

Where to get a power adapter from Swedish to American outlet?

I have a Swedish visitor here and she needs to plug in her laptop. All my web searches turn out the reverse (US–>Sweden) of what I need. Suggestions, please?
