Default Lets see those Mil-surps.....

I figured there was a thread like this on every other gun so... Lets see those old warhorses....
I only have 3 so far.... (top) '37-'42 Japanese Arisaka Type 99 (middle) 1942 Russian M91/30 sniper (bottom) 1953 Russian SKS... I have another 1954 Russian SKS but I "modernized" it and no longer think of it as a mil-surp.. More of a "imitation SVD"

I have a Czech M24-47 on the way, I'll post pics when it arrives. In the meantime, this was my '43 Springfield M1:

I just sold my Cetme w/ Stanlag mount and Hensoldt scope yesterday, same reason. Sold it w/ 3 stock sets, Green, black, and wood, to a buddy. Gave him 400 rounds of Dag and Men ammo and 10 20 round mags + 2 5 round for hunting.

I still have a dozen or two left.
This is by far my favorite semi! Top in pic No U.S. parts, it was imported before the silliness began about compiance parts. Every part is stamped and matches, made in Romania at the Cugir arsenal. Imported by TGI.


That rounds out the scoped rifles.....

My old 1916 Spanish Mauser in 7 X 57 that I bought out of the Montgomery Wards catalog in 1967 for under $20. It's a great shooter!
