Weird, I thought he was more of a sword guy.

In the second presidential debate in the fall, Obama said he was going to see "if we can get an assault weapons ban reintroduced."

You know me, always like to savor that last shot before popping the heatsink.

Really?, I agree with you on the Plasma Shotgun and Javelin, and maaaaaybe on the SMG, but the Pulse Rifle just feels like ass to me.
Give me a Ghost Infiltrator or Batarian Soldier with a Harrier any day of the week.

/Mass Effect thread?, in my Fark?

clyph: Meatschool: forgotmydamnusername: I have read some reports of M1As falling apart on people, although nothing real recent.

As someone on the market for an M1A, this is relevant to my interests.

The M1A has a long and varied manufacturing history. Some lots were better than others. The Wikipedia page has a comprehensive breakdown by serial number on the variances between lots.

That said, the only DOCUMENTED catastrophic M1A failures that I've been able to find were due to bad (overpressure) ammo. SA has a lifetime warranty for the original owner.

I actually don't remember catastrophic failures, either. It was just things like having ill-fitting parts fall off the weapon at the range. The differences in strength between forgings and castings of the same cross-section are real, but it may be that the receiver was sufficiently overbuilt in the first place that in practice it isn't that important. I do remember that there were gunsmiths who preferred to touch up the machine work and finish on Chinese Norinco receivers as opposed to using the Springfield Armory product as the basis for building an expensive M14 clone. Supposedly more likely to be 100% dimensionally correct, and forged, to boot. I don't think they import Norinco anything anymore, though.

Dear Princess Celestia,

During last summer's election cycle, I learned people can make a lot of bits in names like RGR and SWHC while politicians drive the derpier (sorry, Derpy!) portion of the electorate to up on guns and ammo before Obama "takes them away."

Last Friday, I learned that people can also do pretty well by playing the other side of the trade when something happens that's so farking off-the-charts nuts that even Congress might do something.
