Show your milsurps

There seems to be quite a bit of interest in milsurps. With the price of some rifles these days it's understandable that more and more seem to be looking to these old war horses. Show us pics and tell us about yours.

My latest is a 1902 M96 Swedish Mauser. I purchased it for $269 and overall it's in really nice condition with a very nice bore, a #2 on the brass disk. There are some dings on the stock, but nothing at all bad. The birch stock is actually very pretty with that mottled finish that I love. I cleaned the gun with Simple Green and years of gringe came off revealing very pretty wood. I then oiled the stock. Yesterday a cleaning rod, front sight hood, and thread cap arrived from Numrich (they are fast). If what I've heard about the Swedish Mauser is true I'm in for a treat.

WWII "Man Cave" Collection.

From right to left, 1938 Russian Capture Mauser Oberndorf K98, 1944 Springfield Armory M1 Garand (refurb with all Springfield parts), 1944 Rockola M1 Carbine (in early hi-wood stock), 1942 91-30 Mosin Nagant, 1940 all matching w/Mum Nagoya Type 38 Arisaka. The quality of the picture isn't very good (lousy lighting).

Still looking for an Enfield, and a Type 99 Arisaka. I've always enjoyed military history, and the milsurp firearms are a neat way of owning a piece of that history. I think of my milsurps more as "historical artifacts" than a firearms collection.

Right now I have a Yugo and a Turk.

I just picked one up today, a 1916 Oviedo Spanish Mauser short rifle in the original 7mm Mauser chambering. Most were re-chambered to 7.62 NATO, and shooting them in that chambering is the subject of much debate. I'm glad to have mine in 7mm. Overall the action is in very good shape. The stock is being replaced with another of the same kind, and is already on the way. Someone decided to chop off the front two or three inches of the stock along with the front band. It was either damaged or someone started to sporterize it. I lucked out finding a stock for it. I think it will make a very handly rifle not being much longer than an SKS. Assuming the new stock is in good condition this rifle will really shine in its original configuration and in the original 7mm Mauser.

PzGren is that bottom one in your rack a Hakim or Rashid?

Regardless, care to offer some opinion?

The rifle at the bottom is a Hakim, I got it a long time ago when they were cheap and plentiful and I got 1000 rounds of 8x57IS at Paragon for $70.

I was inspired by a friend who had a Hakim, his had definitely been unissued since it missed the feedramp. After adding the feed ramp it was extremely accurate.

Mine shoots okay and is well finished, it is a heavy and very loud rifle; the compensator is sending the sound sidewards. Other folks at the range always commented on the noise that it made.

It is a rather big and heavy rifle, here is an old photo of my son with it with a 25 rd MG08/15 mag in it:

From the top down (sorry about the Savage at the bottom. ;) ):

1942 Mosin 91/30 (Izhevsk)
1944 Mosin M44 (Izhevsk)
1937 Mauser 98k (S/27 - ERMA)
1951 Karabiner 31

Both Mosins are post-war arsenal refinished with matching bolt, buttplate, receiver and magazine cover (i.e. all-matching). The 91/30 has a pretty nice bore and no counterbore at the muzzle; M44 is counterbored with moderately worn rifling. I wonder what sort of stories that M44 has to tell...

Mauser is a Russian Capture with a refinished stock (since the Russians had already ruined it and the hideous shellac was flaking off). Nice bore that cleaned up really well when I ran some copper solvent through it.

K31 is all original, all matching, with soldier ID tag. Like-new bore and most of the original bluing.

Not the most impressive collection, but a good start - next addition will probably be an Enfield (went on a brief buying spree after my C&R showed up last summer and haven't done anything since). I like shooting them all, but the K31 is the best shooter and the Mauser is the most fun.

Thanks lionking, considering I'm still young, it's safe to say I'm gonna have a huge collection when I hit my late-20s, though there are very few guns I want that I dont already own (FAL, Finnish M39, etc).

haha yes I am single as a matter of fact,or I should say I just don't commit to saying "I do" anyway;)And more importantly no kids (I think):scrutiny:

Rubber duck it is a frickin affliction I tell ya,it starts out as just wanting one to wanting one with this code one with that code one with laminated one without (Mosin specially).Some of these I have had for a long time like the SVT for example.You are collecting some nice ones in the photos.

The MAS rifles I got a few months ago,paid almost what they went for years ago,watch gunbroker and forums and sometimes gunshows and deals come around if you wait.There have been a couple times I bid up because it was sooo nice but alot of times I let it go and wait for the next one if the price is too much.

But collection wise Varrok and MJ are guys that use to post here that have some unbelievable collections.MJ specializes in sniper models that for I just won't get into shelling out that much doe except maybe a Mosin sniper,most other sniper rifles (real ones) like K98,Arisaka,Enfield,Garand,M1903 are just way too much.

Storm been looking at those Steyr carbines lately,don't have a SKS either yet.I kick myself for not getting one when they were under $200.

anybody interested in a nice Argentine 1909 here is one on auctionarms.I have bought from this guy before,he is a good professional seller.

It is currently priced "good" so far bid wise,don't know how much more bidding will go up.It has a "smash" on one side of the stock but overall a very nice rifle.They are accurate rifles,though may shoot high at 100yds,luckily my one shot right at 100yds.

Nice ones come around on auction sites once in a while,most people try to list them too high sometimes like $800 or $900.In the $500 range a nice one seems decent,just thought I'd show the listing in case anybody is interested.Follow the auction sites and with patience you can find a nice one for a decent price maybe even around $350 to $400 but more likely a little more than that.Or maybe get lucky on a for sale forum.

btw this is how people should list a item for sale specially a relic,lots of photos from all angles,not just one fuzzy photo with a description of "unissued" "perfect" or "mint".

And my best find so far. A M-28 Finn that a local gun shop owner obviously thought was a basic run of the mill Mosin Nagant. Picked it up for 90 bucks. LOL! Only about 32,000 of these guns were ever made and only about half of that run seems to have survived the 3 wars they fought in.

Storm been looking at those Steyr carbines lately,don't have a SKS either yet.I kick myself for not getting one when they were under $200.

My Steyr 95 arrives today at my FFL. I should have it later today. I originally was going to acquire a Budapest M95 but I went to a Plan B and grabbed a Steyr Austrian. Either way that you go is good as these guns usually run $100 or less. Of course, the issue is the ammo and these days you are looking at a buck a pop or more. That's okay as I might only take 20 shots in an afternoon, and they will be reloaded.

As to an SKS, I just paid $300 each for a 1959 Norinco and a 1958 Romanian, and having paid $88 for my first one back in the Eighties, bought cosmoline soaked out of a crate, you can imagine how I feel :banghead: Unlike many milsurps, the SKS is a real shooter made for high volume plinking. Guns like my Swedish Mauser are a different breed. It's like the difference between sipping and chugging.

Time to go check UPS tracking and see where that Steyr is:D North Carolina to Georgia is a nice short trip.

Note: just checked UPS tracking: "out for delivery". I love those three words.

Storm the Swede is a awesome rifle,love mine.With those if I come across a nice one I won't hesitate to get it just because.I have a Orbendorf 1900 made also that isn't shown.They all shoot spot on at 100yds also with the original front sight.

Lionking, I have to admit that I hesitated for a good month after I saw the Swede on the rack at the shop. I was really after K98 and Enfields at the time and hadn't done my homework. Once I read a bit about the Swede I rushed over and put it on layaway. At $269 I had little to lose and a lot to gain.

BTW, the Steyr M95 is a sweet little (and I mean little) rifle. It cleaned up beautifully and right now the tung oil is drying. A neat feature is that to remove the bolt youpush the trigger forward. I had never seen that before. I'm going to pick up a second one, a Budapest.

Holy crap dude! Not much different than happening upon an individual or dealer with something along the lines of a classic S&W N Frame selling for $150, thinking it was just an obsolete, old man wheel gun.

---

I've only got one Milsurp so far, a Finnish M39 (1945 Sako on an 1898 Tula Receiver). Despite shooting a very crusty batch of surplus ammo of questionable quality, the gun still managed a bit over a 3" group at 50 yards shooting from a sandbag. Given higher quality factory ammo or handloads, I figure the same 3" group at twice the distance would be doable, if I do my part.

Question for the Arisaka Type 99.Just got one and haven't shot it yet.I don't have the adjustable "aircraft" sight on mine,what is usual for point of impact with the aperature ring battle sight?

I've only shot Hornady 7.7 Jap through this one. I haven't tried to find it's zero yet, but I'd guess it is in the 250-300 yeard range given that it prints about 4 inches high at 100.

I do have the aint-aircraft sight but mine didn't have the "arms" on it. I got the arms from Numrich Arms but I still need the screws to hold them in...can't find them anywhere.

I think they are good rifles...equal to an Enfield or Mauser. Really underrated.

if I had that collection it would take plastic surgery to get the s##t eating grin off my face

Thanks...I've been at this a while. A C&R license helps. Fact is though, I'm an "accumulator" rather than a collector...not much rhyme or reason to what I have other than I see something I like and I buy it.

Didn't post my 1911s, other auto pistols or shotguns since they didn't fit the "milsurp" definition here.

Oh, what the heck...might as well so I have a reference to use for other posts...

Gelgoog,interesting bolt on the Venezuelan,usually the 24/30 has a straight bolt.Nice Argentine,while the Swedish mauser gets alot of affection,the 1909 and 1908 Mausers are excellent and accurate Mausers as well.

What caliber is the Moroccan?

Gelgoog
June 20, 2009, 11:15 PM
yes the 24/30 was bent, but other then that its in immaculate conditions. The moroccan is .308 and is #48( very painful to fire btw).

I have several other rare models I have gotten since taking those pics, but couldn't find them. You know how it is, it gets the point when you have so many weapons that taking group pics is a real pain.

hammerhead if we ever meet up at the range I'd be happy to do some shootin' with you.I haven't had the time lately to go out,and even if I did with this heat wave I don't think I would.Some of them I still need to sight in.test fire and experiment with group sizes.

But in the end it isn't how many you have,but how good you shoot with the one.I was at my local FFL Saturday picking up the Mosin 91's and he had a incredible minty condition M1 carbine Winchester on the rack....I mean it is incredible,he bought it off a estate and when he told me for how much I was in awe and he got a couple minty Lugers also.Too much mula for me though he wants 2k for it.I could rack up the credit card for it but I just won't.......I won't I won't I won't arghhh!Just wiped it clean and it has to stay that way......I hope.sigh

http://i693.photobucket.com/albums/vv293/Hammerhead6814/DSC00107.jpg

This is a special Mosin to me. It was rusting, the bolt refused to move, and the rear sight was missing. At $49 though, and another $40 for some parts and rust-remover, it turned into something to hang over my fireplace (if I had a fireplace :D ). Then I took it to the range. Never judge a book by it's cover, because this sucker shooter Bulgarian surplus into neat 3 inch groups at 100 yards, and it's 1942 stamped! :D

Rshooter - Wow, nice Garand! Special Grade from the CMP? I'm going to get a Garand from CMP this week; likely have to settle for a 'field grade'. Looking forward to restoring the stock, though!

And I just realized, I don't have a picture of my No.4 Mk.1. or M1895 Nagant.

Col. Plink, actually no, got lucky on this one. It was the pick of the litter by a gunsmith inspecting buybacks from Korea. Later he was thinking about sporterizing it for hunting. I was able to talk him into a Remington 760 for hunting and he sold me the Garand. Another great rifle saved from the ax when they were cheap and plentiful. :D

Rshooter very nice looking M1903.The Ishapore Enfield looks better than most also.

JD how do you get your photobucket pics to post side by side?

I score a second nice Argentine 1891 Mauser recently.I recently moved out of my friends house into my new house.I had all my stuff lined up against the walls and stacked on the floor.He knew I had alot but didn't realize just how many....he says I have "a sickness" lol.Actually moving them made kind of step back and say "whoa" myself.Maybe I do have a sickness haha.

*the brownish look to the area under the scope is not rust, just a weird lighting thing.
