    new mosin

    This is from my new Mosin a 1928 Tula from 50 yards, first time I have shot any rifle in 4 years. I'm in love, (and in pain from the heavy ball ammo) lol

    Nice Thumb holed SKS!! Is it an SKS-D or SKS-M. I had one just like that back in the mid 1990's. Picked it up brand new at a pawn shop in Gastonia for like $250. Still kicking myself in the ass for getting rid of it!!:sad:

    It was a custom cartridge made for this gun called 9mm Steyr (which is why all his boxes of bullets are so old, afaik it was the only gun to use that cartridge).

    I picked up this M44 today from Aim Right in Rock Hill. It's a 1944 Izhevsk in great shape and I think I got a good price on it even in the current anti-gun media maelstrom.

    You can look up the markings on the top of the receiver and see what model (and therefore caliber) the rifle is. The Arisaka was tested pretty extensively after the war and found to have the strongest actions of any weapons used in that conflict.

    http://oldmilitarymarkings.com/japanese_markings.html

    I can't really tell if that's a type 38 (6.5x50) or a type 99 (7.7x58), but either way make sure it gets checked out before shooting it. Some of the war bring-backs were trainers with smooth bores that weren't designed for live rounds. If it's a shooter buy the dies and reload for it because they are expensive to feed otherwise.

    I have a Type 30 carbine. It is my favorite gun.

    This post needs more pictures.... I've had a chance to take a few photos lately. I'm still not up to the standard a lot of folks on this forum have set but I'm getting better at least!

    Guess I should join in, finally.... I read here all the time. See a lot of taste similar to mine,... wish I had that AG42, but I busted the bank this year on Jerry rifles. :)



    One of my first purchases before I even dreamed of getting a C&R... nothing special. Just a Budapest m95, but I'd had a fascination with m95's ever since I was a kid ogling Dad's uncut Steyr m95. For me, decoding markings and understanding the design is half the fun.

    IMG_6385.jpg


    Not long after I did get my C&R, I bought a Bulgarian crested one. I also have a BRNO crest, but the arsenal refurb faded the crest a bit.

    IMG_6377.jpg


    My Chinese Type 53. I normally don't refinish something unless its value is shot and I'm trying to "save" it.... this fit that bill more or less. Metal was amazingly good. Wood was beyond horrible (no it wasn't a bring back... just one of those cheap imports). Rather than make it pristine, I prefer to clean it up and leave it with a more less "workhorse" look.

    20160206_151328.jpg

    My Vz52. I had one other that I refurbed and sold.... had that black bedliner goop on it and missing lots of metal. Took forever, but as soon as I finished it I found this that a guy on Gunboards had converted to 7.62x39 by sleeving it with an SKS barrel. I can't even imagine how much time and labor that must have taken. Shoots great, but the old dog did double tap on me once.

    My Favorite Finn. Actually, Finn M39 and Swiss K31 are my favorite shooters, hands down.

    k98k - 27 1940 Don't why I'm partial to Erma's (wouldn't mind having a few other codes, but the lottery officials don't seem to recognize my losing tickets as winners yet).
    20160206_145253.jpg


    My Kar98a. Bolt mismatch, not sure if it was an arsenal rework or someone after the war that did it. Well traveled piece with Imperial stamps, Nazi stamps, 1920 property mark, and Police unit markings.

    _MG_7878.jpg

    I forget where I found this little Carcano, but I can't seem to part with it, unlike the Finn'd Carcano I have.
    IMG_6821.jpg

    Type 99 with a ground mum, but had the original monopod and AA sights, plus some interesting carvings/stamping by the the vet that brought it back (or so I assume).
    20150731_140002.jpg


    Another project, but kind of minor. One of Samco's "bottom of the barrel" Swede M41B's. Scope mount is mismatched and needs fitting work. Rear sight was boogered and needed some straightening.

    It's companion M96 had no such issues.

    Fun fun rifle to shoot.... Swiss K11
    _MG_8173.jpg

    Swiss K31 #1 . This one was a barreled action when I found it. Found a very "distressed" stock for it that I rehab'd and put it back into operation. One of the most surprising things I found (and something a purist might hate) is the venerable old M1 web sling fits these things perfectly.
    IMG_6830.jpg

    So to keep the purists happy, there's the 1938 K31 with a fine-adjust rear sight and stinky old original sling. ;)

    My M1 carbine - one of that CMP batch of returns from a few years ago when they sold out. Got lucky that it's a Winchester, and while some people don't like the extra markings, etc, I thought the "Bavaria Rural Police" was a cool added bit of history.
    20160206_150252.jpg

    Had to have a Garand.... would like to have a WW II receiver someday, but this HRA is plenty good enough to last me a while. Has the grenade sight, too.
    IMG_6815.jpg


    This one was a "tribute" to my grandfather. He was a machinist when WW II started, so the best he was allowed to do was join the Colorado National Guard (where I understand he took part in putting down a miner's strike!). My cousin got all his guns, including his RIA scant stocked '03, so I did the next best thing and found one so similar, it's eery (same SN block, same barrel date, etc). Didn't really have to do anything to it other than clean it and add a repro sling.
    20160206_150930.jpg

    I have to admit though, the m1917 is my favorite to shoot, specially with its NOS stock to sit in while the original death-eating-crackers-looking stock finds out how cozy the closet is. This one has a little "X" on the receiver that no one has yet been able to tell me what it was. Some speculated that meant Greek service, but I had read that was usually marked on the stock. The original stock to this one is beat to hell, but no markings like that.

    All right.... one more batch and I'll shut up for a while!

    M91 sniper refurb (one of those MOLOT's from AIM a while back). Gotta love that old chair. No wonder ladies won't come over to the house. :)
    IMG_0266.JPG


    My M44... this one was a post war receiver, but I have a hard time cutting it loose because it shoots so well.
    IMG_6540.jpg

    My not-refurb'd not-Finn'd alleged bringback SVT40.
    20150731_140539.jpg


    My first in a quest for a Russian SKS netted me a cheap deal on a Bubba's 1955 Tula. When I got it, it was sitting in a plastic Tapco stock, had one of the $2 30rd magazines clattering under it, and had a spike bayo. After a few false starts, I finally got some proper but distressed furniture for it and gave it a dyed BLO finish to approximate the Russian shellac. Replaced the wrong pieces. Shot the hell out of it. :) crinkle painted mixmaster but a joy of a rifle.
    IMG_5362a.jpg

    Then I found a 1951 Tula matching.... and I swore I'd sell that mixmaster, but haven't been persuaded to do it yet. After all, "I'm getting paid next week.... I'll be ok." :-D
