    WOW! Beautiful collections, everyone!

    ifit- the color of your 91/30's wood is so nice- did you do some work on it?

    Cheers,

    -Chris

    Here's the two I own- hoping to expand as soon as I am able to afford it... :eek:

    [​IMG]

    1942 Izhevsk Mosinka, Model 91/30. Has an excellent bore, but needs minor touch-up work on the crown. Has a shimmed trigger and some bolt work, as well as some action 'bedding.' A 2 MOA rifle or better with commercial ammunition when I do my part. Pictured here with sling and 1 round of Hungarian FMJ lead core "heavy ball" 185 grain ammunition.

    [​IMG]

    The Mosin paired with its companion, my M1855 Rifle Musket in .58 cal (which is a reproduction, but uses an original buttplate and a few other original parts...I think). You can see the Rapine Minie I use in the right hand corner. A friend of mine tuned the lock on this gun, taking the trigger weight down to 3 lbs and it breaks like thin glass. Other custom work was done by Lodgewood Mfg in Whitewater, WI, including the fitting of the original buttplate.

    Beautiful guns, everyone!

    AWE-inspiring collections gentlemen. Yamamoto was right - a rifle behind every blade of grass (and this thread's not even considering the modern and new stuff we all have!).

    Hello friends and neighbors // Picked these up in early Sept. 2012, pics are from sighting in day.

    Just inventory photos but not many of these represented here yet.
    I really need to get the camera back out, sorry for the poor quality.



    S.A. 1898 .30-40Krag.jpg 1898 Springfield, 30-40 Krag

    Rem1917EddystoneSA1903A3.jpg 1917 Remington Eddystone //1903A3 again,, both .30-06

    Remington315T Military trainer.jpg Remington 513T ,Military trainer, .22
    EnfieldJungleCarbine.jpg Enfield Jungle Carbine, .303 British

    More satisfying to shoot these than my words can describe.:D
    The 1917 is always a crowd pleaser.

    My WWII/Cold War collection thus far. Not pictured are the #s matching CYQ P-38 that just came in last week and the Kar98k I ordered that's on its way here currently.

    I found it's more accurate than I am. It's a Yugo M57 that I got late summer last year for $200 with 2 mags and a holster in like new condition. Took awhile for AIM to get any 7.62x25 in stock and I've only gotten it to the range once so far. Took awhile on the cosmoline removal too. The pistol is rather 1911 like.

    I noticed the price on all the Tokarev variants has jumped already, so I'm glad I ordered when I did.

    How does the VZ 52 shoot dark.zero.x, is she pretty accurate, I was thinking on getting one of those or a Spanish FR-8 :)
