Greetings Me Droogs N Droogettes!
I did a “thing”
I received an honest to God panzerfaust in the mail. Not saying from who, but holy shit. Now… mind you, as far as I could tell when it showed, it’s a “museum quality faithful reproduction.” Meaning non-functional, and as close as you could get to the “real deal.”… and BTW dude… you shouldn’t’ve.
Cool, but not cool enough.I tend to go “full retard”
What good is a paperweight when the S.W.A.T. team MRAP is showing up outside the door?
So, to keep it within “legal” limits, I went about refurbing the ideal/conceptual idea. In the end, the actual tube IS demilled. Came like that. Extra hole and all that. Can’t fire, won’t fire. Safely that is.
Of course like any demilled weapon, those who want to re-mil them are going to, so let’s just get that out of the way. In my case, not until we hit the “Lord Humungus” zone am I going to go “Full Covenant”, at which point, those in charge best head deep into the bunkers, as a guy like me? Well, considering I ‘skirt’ the line, and don’t cross it, whomever decides to be the “Lord of Tampa Bay” is going to desperately want me as I don’t see meselves as a leader. Need homegrown weapons and shytte? I’m your man… for a price.
Too much hassle otherwise. Let me build weapons of mass destruction in peace Aye?
So, The issue(s):
1) Trigger assembly, properly designed, but out of spec.
2) Targeting Assembly/Safety, out of spec.
3) Lots of un-needed, extraneous bullshit in the trigger assembly, un-needed, out-of-spec.
4) LOTS of warping of parts and pieces-parts., and improperly measured aspects of everything, to include bent and forced-to-fit parts which left it looking functional, but in reality? Not so much.
I mean not to be unexpected for a reproduction to-be-carried in a reenactment. In fact, it’s perfect..
What I want is something I could see if it could be made to fire real ammo and be used in real OMG time against real anti-patriot forces.
Now, mind you, I’m letting it “all hang out” out there.
Meaning, the ATF hasn’t shown up here despite GunGirl’s warning, after this, I’m not so fuckin’ sure.
My excuse, and the one I’m sticking to? I was an Anti-Tank Gunner BEFORE A-T was cool.
AND, well, this thing is legal as a beagle.
BIG assed hole that keeps it legal.
NOT trying to go to jail
That being said, I re-worked the trigger, the safety AND the entire tube.
Yeah. I’m cool like that. Finished it tonight after getting back from the hospital.
I literally spent my nights in that Hospital bed ‘wargaming’ how to ‘fix’ this thing… that’s what I do at night… no joke… think about weapons problems, adapting and overcoming stuff. Maybe I am crazy.
Now.. this thing cannot fire a live round.
Hope you ATF and Glowniggers dig that.
This thing is legal-as-fuck.
Piss me off tho…
MAKE me decide y’all are the bad guys. Let’s see how THAT scene works out.
Because not only did I get the whole “it can shoot’ thing worked out but I figured out the warhead. Seems you google “copper funnel” on Da Google, you can find solid copper funnels that are great Armor Force Penetrator (AFP) shells.
Don’t blame me, the bad guys figured this shit out LONG ago.
Yeah… found one that fits the Panzerfaust warhead for like $15.
Yeah. No idea how it’d ackchully werk, but man, a tube-launched, 60mm based rocket, with an 80mm copper based EFP, hitting an MRAP that’s designed to stop mines as opposed to RPGs and whatnot?
If –I– were on the S.W.A.T. team, and were told –who– exactly we’re going after, I’d be like “Fuck you AND the pension”
