    Мать Коллекция России - Mother Russia Collection

    (I hope that translation is right, I used 3 different online translators, and got different results on 2 of 3.What a gyp.:()

    So, being of 1/2 Russian, and 1/2 German heritage, I thought this might make for a fun pic and thread. Here's my salute to my Russian heritage with my rabbit fur Ushanka with Romanov Imperial Crest (beaver pelt would be cooler, but they are kinda pricey), my 1945 Izhevsk M44 Mosin-Nagant, Nagant 1895 revolver, and super minty 1954 Izhevsk sks. I'll take a pic for the German side later on (dont worry, no nazi flags, SS pins, etc :barf:). Lets see some pics of collections that represent your family heritage!

    Very Nice! I think that is the first Nagant revolver I have ever seen.

    Really? They are pretty neat with the Soviet star and other marking, ugly like only a mother could love, fun to shoot, and really mild on recoil. The original Russin ammo for it is crazy looking too, as its a 38mm long, skinny, staright walled case, and the bulet is seated several mm's below the case mouth.Kinda funny lookin'. The DA trigger pull requires a Russina tractor though. Shooting A full cylinder in DA is quite a workout on the trigger finger. Interesting guns with the whole oddball gas seal cylinder that slides forward as the tigger is pulled.
    pretty neat conversation piece and intersting collectable for only $80.

    I love the way the cylinder goes forward to seal the chamber/barrel for each shot !

    A friend of mine has 3 of these Nagant.

    Funny that I've never seen one here in Portland or maybe it was just because I wasn't looking for one. I'll check the next Rose City Gun Collectors show to see if someone has one there. And you're right, it is uglier than sin. :D

    I don't have anything - the only Norweigan firearm I can think of is one of those oddball 1911 clones from WWII, and they ain't cheap.

    Nice. Are those original, handed down through the family/generations guns? If so, thats very cool. I hadnt really thought of the direct family connection to specific guns like that with this topic (I should have, it's obvious now that it has ben pointed out. I'm a little dense sometimes :D), only the examples of guns from "where my 'people' come from" thing that I did. Thats even cooler, as mine are just Russian guns I bought, not that were passed down. way to add some cool depth to the concept.:cool:

    Nice collection, jrfoxx. Those Nagants are fun to shoot.

    If I put together a collection reflecting my family heritage, I guess it would just have to be American guns, otherwise there would be too many, including numerous European guns as well as a bow and some arrows.:)

    Yup. I beleive I got to see you enjoying yours the time we actually made it to the range. I really need more money for gas and ammo, and to take a few Tuesday nights off to do it again. I think that was the last time I got out shooting.:(

    Thats VERY cool. Only "family" guns I have were my dads, and 1 that was his mother's, and one that was his father's. If the family owned guns further back than that, I have never heard of it, and have NO idea what became of them. Too bad. My prize gun is definitely my nickle plated Colt Trooper MKII that my dad bought new just a few months after I was born.It was his favorite gun, then he gave it to me last year, and not only is it just a super sweet gun, that was my dads, the fact it was made and bought the year I was born is pretty cool.

    We have one of those Nagant Gas Seals at a local gunshop. It has been rechambered to 7.62x25. That might be interesting, if it is safe. The trigger pull is horrendous though.

    jrfoxx, I believe that "Mother Russia" should be in the genitive case, mati russiya.

    Collection of Mother Russian, would call for genitive case.

    But that's my schoolbook Russian. We just happen to have a native speaker who runs the place.:D

    El Tejon, you are probably correct. All I did was plug the phrase into Babelfish and 2 other online translators, and used the one that 2 of them returned, as the 3rd was different. I would hae actually been surprised if it turned out to be correct, as it seems the online translators dont really tend to work for anything other than single words, due to the way all languages do thing in regards to case, tense, gender, etc. I only took a semester of Russina in college, and then they canceled the course. I figured it would be close enough to get the point accross, 99% of us wouldnt know the difference :p, and either way, it works as an attention grabber, as people want to see what the thread with all the "crazy squigly words" is. :D

    I was kinda hoping Max Popenker or Oleg would see it right away and give me a correct translation while I was still able to edit the thread title (theres a time limit in this sftware), and bail me out.:eek: Oh well, my butchered Russian matches my incorrectly refinished M44 at least. :D

    And my apologies to Max, Oleg, and any other Russian memebers for butchering your cool language. We Americans tend to be a little slow, as well as arrogant, especially when it come to other languages.Everbody else should just always speak English. It's better anyways.:neener::D

    Let's see...

    Like Poprivit, I've got Irish and then there's America Indian and German. I guess I'll have to round up my Great Grandpa's old 12ga., my Grandfather's Marlin 336 and my bow. I don't own any German guns yet. I'm gonna have to add that to my list.

    JRFOXX, Nice collection you have there. The hat is a nice touch.

    Seven, That is way to cool to have guns that have been handed down. I never got to hunt with my grand-dad (we lived too far away), but I feel like he is probably smiling somewhere when I take his rifle to the range with me. Even more so, when my son gets to shoot it.

    You might be able to find Krag-Jørgensen rifles somewhere. Might be cheaper than a Kongsberg Colt.

    My wifes family firearm collection starts with the muzzle loader from her great great grandfather. From there we have some double barreled shotguns, followed by her grandfathers Winchester 1897 shotgun. She also has the Ariska her father brought back from WWII. She also has his 20 gauge. Her addition was a 22 rifle.
    All in all, she has 10 family long guns.
