    Hello friends and neighbors// "Civil " War weapons count?

    If someone showed up with these, to use fighting, during the "Civil" War,... I'd let them stay.

    Hello friends and neighbors// Woops... just noticed this is Rifle Country, the Mauser threw me off.

    Here ya go.

    Top: Arisaka with Mum, from the Japanese First Arsenal, pre 1917, with 1st style Bayonet.
    Battlefield pick up from Tarawa, was on the tag, so it was used until early WWII.

    Mid: 98Gew Mauser, untouched

    Bottom: 1869 Swiss Vetterli , with a partial box of .41 rimfire. It would have been nice to have a 12 shot in 1869.:D
    The ammo is worth as much as this sporterised example of the old Military rifle. (anyone have a forearm going to waste?)

    I'm still working on it. There are several C&R guns that are on my list to buy but I just can't find them for the right price or in the right condition. I love the history aspect of collecting old military guns.
