many forums have a thread for gun porn. I looked and didn't note see a current one.

Something I picked up, Interesting sniper rifle. Origins unknown, It is a Finnish Mosin Nagant with a original PU scope. Could be a Original Finnish build or ??

This is my "baby". Doesn't matter what else I shoot, I always go back to it; was passed down from my Father.

It's an old German interwar mauser, 7x57mm but it's sitting on a "newer" stock; the butt has Parker Hale markings but I'm not sure if it's exact. An excellent shooter.

I've been looking around for a nice Mosin to add to the collection as well but all of the ones I've looked at so far are in rough shape or have been "touched up" to much to make it worth it. I know a few shops that I plan on scouting out this summer when I have the time. I'd love to get my dirty mitts on a quality Kar98k as well but I've yet to see any around.

Wasn't long ago ammo and those old venerable veterans where pretty darn inexpensive. If you can get a Finnish Mosin, that would be a good deal, they tend to be more. Last year Big 5 had Mosins down to $88, included bayonet, cleaning kit, sling and ammo boxes.

There are others Enfields are another good group.

Mauser too, K98 are getting hard to get. WWI one are hard to find. To me, the history of those fire arms is the best part, to bad they can not speak.

I have a few Enfields already (no pics right now) and it's the history of them for me as well. Any era of military firearm is getting harder to find up here, mostly because the idiots that had them handed down to them; don't want them in the house, so they just hand them over to the police and then we lose another piece of history as they are broken down. I'm hoping to start working on my "Gun Room" later this year or next and then fill it with as much history as I can before it disappears.

The one on the right is a BSA 22 LR training rifle made in 1914.

The one in the middle is a WWI contract, made by Savage Arms.

The two on the left are Ishapor, the end one is 7.62 Nato.

The scary part, we may be headed to be like England. Our kitchen knives would be banned too.

I've used both of those and the good ol' .303 in service. We use the 22 LR training for cadets and the Rangers (Arctic version ;)) plus their regular service rifle is the standard .303 Enfield. And I got to use a 7.62 version at a range, probably there for the same reason but easier for us to get ammo. I'm not sure if they are going ahead with it but I heard of a plan to rebore all the Ranger Enfields to 7.62 Nato. I'd much rather an Enfield up in the cold any day, both so I know there is less of a chance the action is going to freeze up and it has more power to take down an Arctic wolf or Polar Bear. :eek::D

Enfield .303 No.1 Mk 3. GRI's were made in India, if I'm not mistaken.

I just dug it out of storage after 8 years. Needs about a week of cleaning. Ugghh...

(the pictures say 2006, but that's just because I didn't set the clock in my camera)










I don't know why it has "1899" painted on the stock. I think it might have been the Rack No., or something.

I want to find out more about this rifle.

No, you'll just have to carry a $500K "liability" insurance policy (with AIG, of course) to be allowed to keep Kitchen Knives!
And every kitchen knife will be made in China, with military scrap that Obama sold them for 20cents on the fuckin dollar, and sold back to us. It's a brave new world!
:doh:

That'll pretty much cover you out to a couple hundred yards, bro!
Looks formidable enough to me!
Thanks D! I can't freakin see much farther than that these days anyway!
I'm hoping that 30-06 should keep me okay out to 500yds or so.

Still gotta have the semi-autos though...(quick before they're banned).
Next on the list is the KAHR (or XDm)pistol, a Ruger 10-22, and a 7.62 semi-auto (carbine) of some kind.
:D

Hopefully before the month is over...because shit's happening SO FAST!!!
:uhh:
