:sigh: When I hear about prices like that, it makes me wish I was born a lot sooner..... I have a buddy who says he remembers when you could get just about any mil-surp for under $50. He said he even bought a Arisaka for $7 when he was a teenager...... Now the prices are insane on most of them...

Very nice everyone! Keep them comming.. At least I get see all these old guns..... Wouldnt mind some sidearms as well...

Back in the early 70's, I remember buying a 8mm mauser from Woolco for $15.00. That was one of the most fun rifle I've ever owned (also would give you a sore shoulder if you shot at 5 gallon oil cans a 1/4 mile away all afternoon). I gave it away in the 80s to a guy who needed a deer rifle and couldn't afford it. He still had it when he passed away a few years ago. I'm not sure what's happened to it since.

That happened quite a bit back then. Neighbors helped neighbors.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

Here are a few. Several more rifles out in the safe, but I don't have pics handy.

Here is MN M38 and a Steyr M95



Mauser Sporter w/Kahles 4x that was taken off a German Sniper. It is chambered in 7.62x63, and was recovered with two Garand belts of M2 ball. I got it from the son of the man who captured it (with the capture papers).


No4Mk1(T) Enfield Sniper.


I have a K31, a few Mausers, and a couple more Enfields out in the safe, but no pics handy.

Thanks. It was a gift from a friend whose dad brought it home from Tarawa. It is in excellent shape.

That No4mk1(T) is sweet! To bad your on the wrong side of the country. I have some original ammo that would make it shine. I just sent 112 cartridges north to a buddy that needed them for a shoot. 50 were 1972 SA. Awesome ammo. I still have 300 rounds, sealed, of HXP.
