  1. The performance of this or that ATR ammo type in the nearer future isn't the key point as ATR in general become obsolescent. Giving people the idea for HESH is. BTW, it is recommended that this idea is very discreetly shared with France and Great Britain but not Germany.
  2. We have all seen the movie where the hero rides into a town that is quite, too quite! That is the reason why everybody is arming themselves like crazy. They are worried about the two attacking each other indirectly and no one wants a piece of that. And now for some interesting developments in anti tank weapons: Some of Poland‘s Wz. 35 anti-tank rifles have fallen into Hungarian hands who let us examine them. At first glance it looks like just another ATR: 8mm, bolt action, magazine but it is something entirely different. The round is not intended to penetrate the armor. Upon i
  3. I'm surprised we still have such non standard longarms. Someone must have hidden them in back in 1936 fearing he'd get worse or nothing in return. What's wrong with machine carbines from the navy's perspective?
  4. 7.92x145 wasn't a typo. 😳 I bet it's quite the whole puncher to the redesign and retooling might not make it worth it.
  5. My inspiration for the quick detachable barrel of the existing ATR.
  6. That could be it, or not ? Kinetic energy wise 7.62 is more powerful than 5.56. Not by much but it could be just enough to make a difference. OTOH, Ruger makes them in 7.62 too, don't they. It could be the dimensions. Or a combination of the two. KP15 polymer lower! Polymer lowers can be done but not(!) on the same dimensions as aluminum lowers. I bet that goes for cast and forged steel as well.
  7. Good video indeed. Re Ruger. They cast entire recievers, not just the trunnions. A case of an overall bigger part that can take the stress even if it's made in a nominally weaker manner?
  8. *googles WASR* So that's how the import ban works and one works around it.
  9. Isn't this how multi color camo patterns were actually developed?
  10. You think blue-gray is wrong? Just field grey works too I guess. 😇
  11. Thanks, how much do ARs of similar quality to the new US made AKs cost?
  12. Ok, if American made AK are so questionable, where do the good AKs come from Americans buy? Pre import ban guns and post ban handmades both costing and arm and a leg?
  13. During the reign of the last king(and also first president) the field uniform became dark blue. Dress uniform still is, field uniform changed to a mix of light blue/grey.
