“By 1945, everyone was in the French Resistance…”

An interesting article about it.

A bad day in the French countryside

When the bolt stays forward on your last machine pistol magazine, it’s going to be a bad day…but probably not for very long.

Fallschirmjägergewehr 42

FG42 from SMG Guns at the range. 308 rifle that shoots like a .223 AR, thanks to the integral spring-loaded recoil reducer in the stock.

Accessorized Tavor

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

 

Top rail designed to match AR15′s height over the stock comb for comfortable sight picture, a small side rail and a hollow forend with integral weapon light: all made by my friend Paul’s Gear Head Works. 9mm Tavor conversion is fun to shoot. Mepro 21M sight turned out to be too bright for small targets but works very well on full-sized silhouettes.

Boberg XR45-S is finally shipping

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

If you place your order by Friday, July 11th, they will supply two extra magazines (for a total of four), plus one item of your choice from their hat & t-shirt designs. At $1200, it’s an an expensive pistol, but it is also a most efficient and effective design in terms of low recoil, barrel length relative to the size, magazine capacity for the size, and reliability. Controlled feeding and fully supported chamber make it far more dependable than a micro 1911.

Moving from gun control to people control.

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

Post-WW1 Germany had gun control long before Hitler. In large part, it was the reaction to the civil war between Communists and the rest of the populace. One of the first actions of the Nazis after they gained control was the reduction of the number and severity of technical prohibitions on weapons.

Nazis were not anti-gun. They were merely against guns for their political enemies, and for their prey like Gypsies and Jews. A good Nazi could have a pistol or a rifle. By 1938, a Jew couldn’t even own a stick for self-defense. You might recall where that trend led. This kind of thing had also been done in America through Jim Crow laws designed to disarm Negroes.

We are now seeing this trend revived in the US. Democrat Senator Yee is indicted for gun running to gangs. Democrat federal administration runs guns to Mexican drug cartelsNew York Mayors run around with numerous armed bodyguards. “Special” people get special treatment, while the prohibitionists try to disqualify as many Americans as possible with as many excuses as they can dream up. It is, in effect, an effort to revive the feudal Second Estate with an exclusive right to weapons and use of force. They mean to rule and their rules would not be enlightened or selfless.

Personal endorsement: XR45-S

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

I currently carry XR9L and 9S pistols as the compact/subcompact options, and recommend XR45S for those who prefer larger bores. You can get cheaper subcompact guns, but none combine the long bullpup barrel, the low recoil of rotary breech, the extra round held by the magazine that doesn’t require a follower, and the precision machining ensuring the gun’s longevity. I think that Arne Boberg is a brilliant designer and a competent engineer to make his concepts work well.

Not an Operator.

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

My friend isn’t Army, Marines or special operations ninja. Instead of a short-barreled MP5, a Sub2000 has to suffice. It works.

Keltec weapon light on a rail forend, 50 round drum that actually functions, red dot sight, extended charging handle, GG&G adapter for single point sling, vertical foregrip. If 50 rounds feels like too much, 33rd and 17rd stick magazines also work.

Keltec light is small, bright and very simple in use. It does one thing — very well.

Keltec RFB in teenage hands

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

Sarah 15, under 100 pounds and left-handed. Forward ejecting RFB works fine for her even though it tips the scales at 14.2lb fully scoped, BUISed, suppressed and loaded. The balance is far enough back for comfortable hold.

I used this plastic “bottle” from Target Factory to verify 100 yard zero of the 1-4x scope on the RFB. It moves vigorously when hit.

She also does an excellent job with much lighter and even quieter guns.

Red dots on AKs and shotguns

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

Arsenal AK 7.62×39 with Aimpoint sight on Ultimak rail, ACE stock and Magpul 30rd magazine

Having used Bulgarian, Polish and certain US polymer magazines, I am a convert. Steel is just too heavy for the same result. AK is a 3-4MOA rifle and yet nobody questions the utility of a red dot sight for improved speed and precision.

Vepr 12 with Aimpoint red dot.

While the RPK-derived Vepr 12 are unlikely to be more accurate that the rifles, they are not appreciable less accurate out to the transonic  range of the slug in use, especially if the slug is of a Brenneke type. 4MOA out to 60-80 yards isn’t unusual, and rifled shotguns can approach 1.5MOA with Brenneke or sabot slugs. Here’s a PDF illustrating terminal performance of slugs at long range, and a video showing slug use at 230 yards. So better sights are a plus even for smoothbores.
