    As the title implies lets see some of the nice sporterized the not so nice and the downright hacksaw and pipe wrench rifles, that were former military rifles.

    Of course he became a sniper. He didn't have the knack for gorilla warfare.

    Hee's an M1 Carbine with a Fajen stock & a good blue job.
    And a 1917 Enfield with about a years worth of work, nothing but hand tools used.

    This is a MN carbine I got for 25 bucks. All I have done was scout scoped and put cheek piece on it. Shoots like a bat out of Hades for accurate with cast boolits.

    Middle pic the bolt with the boxed end wrench- beautiful and comes in handy if you need to repair your vehicle on the way home! LOL!

    madcratebuilder, I sure hope those tags are evidence stickers from the TRIAL which led to the CONVICTION of whoever did that! LOL Ten years for creating an unholy abomination.

    Here is a classic Sheridan "Blue Streak" 5mm pellet rifle I got at a pawn shop. It had really been "bubbatized".

    Rear sight of some sort.

    I did what I could for it, filled the holes drilled in the stock and replaced the original sights. Then refinished it with the original 1920's Springfield Armory stock finish of 1/3s.

    Shoots like a dream....

    My Grandfather purchased an Arisaka in the 50's from a veteran. He told me it was still in cosmoline. Intact mum, dust cover early rifle with intact rear fold out sight. He chopped the stock down and then realized Jap ammo was hard to come by. He has never even fired the rifle. It bothered him so much a few years ago after talking to me that he called a buddy who called a friend who called another friend. Arisakas of many different types have all started appearing at his house to use for parts. He hasn't paid a dime for them. He has 8 rifles now that have been given to him to repair his own, five of them have intact mums, three of the 8 are late war rifles :D. They range in condition from good to poor. I now have the parts to fix his blunder. :D I am even considering trying my hand at gunsmithing the worst of the bunch-an early war with piting and a destroyed stock. It spent most of its life in a basement.

    Here's my $100 Spanish Mauser. 1893 with about half the updates for 1916 applied by an arsenal at some point. Bubba did the usual shortening job on the stock. I keep pondering buying a new stock and maybe having a nice .257 Roberts barrel put on it but I never do. Once i put a taller front sight on for a 100 yard zero, it'll put 139 grain 7x57 where I want it to, all day long.

    My VZ24 scout rifle project, also in 7x57, is a much more slow and deliberate proposition. No pics yet.

    Haha, that wrench bolt handle would've been awesome if it were a little more proportional.
