    With the 5 rounds I was able to find, its alright, nothing fancy. Ammo is quite hard to get. go with the FR-8.

    also not in the picks are brand new to me service grade 1944 springfield M1 Garand that I received yesterday... the last one... now the only springfield receivers they have left are converted to 308 and special grade mix masters.

    also have a bubba'd 91/30 thumbhole sporter and enfield no 4 in a half passable 45ACP conversion.

    Just took this for a bayonet thread, figured I'd put it here too:
    VKT M39, 1941 Tikkakoski barrel on an 1897 Sestroryetsk receiver. Bayonet is a repro, sadly.

    Yeah, it's stubby for the rifle. The Finns weren't as big on bayonet fighting as the other militaries of the time. These mostly got used as utility knives. Not many were made, either, and hardly any survived. If you can find actual original Finnish bayonets, they'll fetch a higher price than the rifle they go on.

    Here are my Mosins and US milsurp (bless those guys at the CMP). Left the SVT out of the Mosin pic. I shoulda added my 1855 and 1861 muskets and 1873 Trapdoor to the US picture.

    Also don't have pics of my Brit, German or Japanese collections.

    The only problem you have dark zero x is you need more space! Keep those beauties protected from bubba for at least 1 generation more!

    dark.zero.x, yeah, your camera is out of focus or shaky.
    And you need some racks, or something.
    And one has an ugly yellow tag on it.

    Otherwise, where's the problem?

    The first step is admitting you have a problem. Seriously, dark.zero.x, that is a metric butt ton of milsurps!

    Hey, that's a decent collection there dark.zero - counting out duplicates (photos at different angles), I'm figuring you have around 50 or so milsurp rifles. Are you focusing on any particular eras, countries or themes?

    IMHO, one only has a problem when you start skipping over life's essentials for a hobby. When you have to skip meals, or a date, or other fun because you're sunk yourself too deep in a hobby, that's where one might want to re-examine one's priorities. And this goes for any sort of collecting. I knew of one guy who was collecting automobiles. Basically the dude had no real furniture to speak of, and could not join the guys out very often - everything was sunk into acquiring and maintaining his hobby. That's where things clearly go over the top.
