The garand and the carbine are the only ones that have bore erosion between 3 and 4. No clue about the mosins dont have a .311 gage. The ithaca is nearly a smoothbore almost no rifling left but its more accurate than a nighthawk custom.

It could use a trigger job and some smoothing on the magwell since the mags are far from drop free. But that would ruin it in my opinion. If i had another original ww2 ithaca i wouldnt hesitate to rebarrel and smooth the well out and make it a carry piece. If there was a smith i could trust not to fk it up i would have a barrel fitted. I dont think im gonna run anymore through it due to the barrel condition till i do that

Havent really road tested the garand yet. I just take it out now and then fondle it and put it away. Havent worked up the nerve to shoot it.

I haveto say overall the 03a3 is the overall best till i test drive the garand. Then ill re-evaluate.

For sure!!!

Why havent you shot the M1?? Ive only shot 3 clips from a broken one and I still think its one of the greatest rifles ever!

I prefer the M17 to the 1903 (I dont know what variant I shot, It was made in 1933) My favorite WWII bolt action so far is the Arisaka.. I see why so many were rechambered and sporterized after the war. The action and trigger are silky smooth.....

Taken a long time to clean it properly barrel was extremely copper fouled and the weather hasnt been cooperating mainly.

The Arisaka mum is ground, but not too unsightly.

Neither of the Mausers are family pieces. Just items that turned up locally, several years apart. The Gewehr 98 has a long-ago repaired duffle cut under the lower band. The Zf-41 came with the scope can, a bayonet, and a partial box of German milsurp ammo. I was lucky to come across it.
