Cure for milsurpitis?


March 30, 2006, 12:34 PM
I need help!

fter getting a 1943 Swiss K31, a 1940 K98 and a 1941 CMP field grade M1 (got real lucky on that one), I inadvertantly ended up with a theme. WWII-era production. Then came the Savage Enfield and today a 1943 91/30. Help!:eek:

Not pictured are a Norinco SKS, Bulgy Mak and the Swiss K31.

I don't want or need a Carcano or Arisaka do I. :uhoh:

Like you'll get a lot of sympathy here. ;)

BTW, do you know your No.4 is cocked?

and, those golf clubs look old enough to be C&R..........chris3

There is only one known, but theoretical, cure...

owning every, single, last milsurp firearm on earth.

Few people have the resources to afford this cure, and most of them (Bill Gates, Paul Allen, Warren Buffet) are not aflicted with the disease.

You're not done yet!

No Swedish Mauser!

Clubs are mid-70s Titleist blades and persimmon woods with leather bag. Not quite C&R yet.

Take two Garands and call me in the morning!

Sorry, it was a great straight line.

First you have to decide you need one example of every WWII rifle, Allies and Axis.

Then get the reloading equipment so your grandkids can still shoot them years from now.

There are two cures:

One of each, or abject poverty; whichever comes first.

Whered'ya get the Savage Enfield? They're ranging from $120-$180 at Classic, AIM and others.

sorry man, there is no cure...but on the other hand, its really not that bad as far as diseases go.

March 30, 2006, 07:03 PM

mine started with a #1 mk3 enfield...downhill from there
mosin M44, Garand,K31,mas 49/56,yugo m48...carcano and steyer

March 30, 2006, 07:35 PM
Well, I've got the Allies covered, except for maybe a MAS and M1 carbine, then...

The K31, 91/30 and #4Mk1* Savage came from Aim. The K98 RC came from IO. Cmp M1.

March 30, 2006, 07:40 PM
the Mas is a great gun...mine has only been dropped once....
ammo is a little hard to find...they are getting harder to find

Being a broke college student has pretty much cured me... :cuss: For the time being... ;)

Like your choice of whisky. I note it is from Kentucky too.

I've found when you get too many milsurps... really too many....your wife will tell you. And... she will tell you so you understand. :D

Great first post!

There is no cure. First you get your 03 FFL to get one or two specific guns. Next you need one of every model available, then you start buying duplicates so so have "shooters" and collection pieces. Next thing you know, you're buying five at a time just because "it's too good a deal".

BTW, the UPS guy just came to my house today :)

The Enfield is probably cocked because before he took the picture he took it down and worked the bolt a few times. Every time I see mine I have to pick it up and play with it.

March 31, 2006, 12:06 AM
Those wouldn't be Turk Mausers , now would they? I've got a few of them too... but some guys have.....four fors out the living space...and you would have a five for.... But... you can't have too many. They are great shooters and if you look under the wood you will every once in a while get a note from a Turk basic trainee. Kind of like the Swiss.....only.....Turks really were conscripts. But.....hey... so was I back during the Vietnam thing. :D

I havent caught milsurplusitics yet but I hear it going around
you can even pass i though the internet now...thats pretty bad :neener:

What is the second rifle down, I couldnt ID it but i know its not a K31
Again my deepest condolences on your developing disease :( :D

BTW i play with the bolt on my 1893 turk mauser all the time....cant help it

I really believe the best cure (if you want one) is to go cold turkey. I'll help you by taking the M1 off your hands for $500.-:D

March 31, 2006, 01:47 AM
Don't forget the M1 Carbine, Ariaska type 99 and maybe type 38, K98 Mauser, Maybe a M44, a Carcano, for a WWII collection. Really sound like me started with a CMP Garand and know got the whole WWII collection going.

BTW the Wood pictured looks like a Golden bear 3 Wood. Has a set of those woods about 15 years ago. May still be laying around parents house.


March 31, 2006, 02:08 AM
1,3 and 5 wood are all Titleists. There's an old Acushnet Bullseye putter around here somewhere. I use the Mizunos/MacGregor's for more serious golf.

Being required to lug all you have to the range every month. :neener:

I shoot in the backyard. :neener:

I shoot in the backyard:neener:

:rolleyes: :rolleyes:

The wood closest to the shelf sure looked like my old set of golden bear woods.

Niner- Yes, they are Turk M38's. SOG was running a "5 for" deal, $55 each.

Cure....?? CURE......???


Where's the freaking problem....??

Now, if you had crotch crickets or something - I could understand this searching about for a cure business.

But milsurpitis....??

That don't need no stinking cure! That needs FEEDING!
