I'm interested in your whole mil-surp sollection. looks like you've got a pretty big collection.
You ARE going to give me a PM with a heads-up before you do that, and let me get first dibs, right? Right? Please?
Noww... who can I cross off my list so I have a few extra bucks to spend LOL
I just sent for my C&R paperwork. Honestly, I'm doing it more for discounts at places like Midway than anything else. I'm not very into surplus rifles. Now handguns is different. What handguns are commonly available for C&R? Do the CZ52's and Maks qualify? I seem to remember that the Argentinan Colts were C&R also, but I assume that supply has dried up. I can see me dumping some cash on C&R pistols if there is a decent selection out there.
The three bargains out there right now are the CZ-52, the Nagant Revolver, and the Makarovs. Of the Makarovs, only two variants are C&R: East German and Russian.
You will enjoy the C&R, it will bring you many interesting packages from the Great Big Brown Truck.
Send it to www.empirearms.com as well. He tends to have the best selection of C&R stuff.

Here is a sample of what I have. Most of my C&R stuff has been recently acquired, with no pictures yet.

Right Column: Bulgarian Makarov, Taurus PT-22
By size we have a Tangfolio .380 ... a Llama .22 and a USA Made Beretta .25
Forgot I had this one.....
I've had my C&R for a while but I hadn't used it until this past week. In one week, I bought a Russian Mak, a Nagant revolver and a Walther P-38. Haven't received any of them yet so no pictures--sorry.
I'm ashamed to say I can't identify most of some of the larger collections that have been posted.
I am in the market for a Nambu Type 14 and a Webley Mark VI as soon as I can find a good enough deal.
Don't be ashamed, I bet over half of the folks who've visited this thread can't name most of the pistols. I wish the owners would've told a little bit about the history behind their pistols. We're all here to learn, that's the fun in collecting. A nagant revolver is just a revolver until you learn about it's history. And I've gotta say it. I'm so jealous that you just bought three pistols in one week! It'd take me three months to get those. I've gotta move if I ever want to start collecting pistols.
And well all be happy to see those pics when you've got um.
Fortunately, the Mak and the Nagant are pretty inexpensive. The Walther is a WWII-era so it was a little more pricey, but no more than a decent modern pistol.
I second the wish that the posters would include a little info about each of the pisols posted. That would be a great learning experience for me. It would probably (unfortunately) also add greatly to my "want to own" list.
I didn't mention in my first post, but I also own a CZ-52, an East German Mak and a Russian Military Mak (sans import marks) that I bought prior to my C&R license. The CZ-52 and EG Mak were my 2nd and 3rd guns, actually!

I also notice your gun has a different finish than the typical shiny blue as is common. What did you have done to it and where?
