Uncommon Mil-surps
Funny how no one thinks of Mexico or the Chinese when it comes to firearms, but both of them beat the rest of the world when it came to inventing the semi-auto.... Mexico with the Mondragon, China with the Liu Rifle
(A Mondragon clip is in my Mex mil-surp thread...)

Liu Rifle:
Another weird one... Japanese copy of the M1... A "Japanese Garand"
So, Whats some other "uncommon" Mil-surps that are out there? Are there any that arent very collectible, thus inexpensive? Just tryin' to expand my mil-surp knowledge (and maybe collection? ;) )

Swiss k-31, idk how uncommon they are, but they can be had for around 250 bucks. Straight pull bolt (you wanna talk about ahead of their time lol) and extremely accurate, detachable box mag. They also have very nice triggers, it will surprise you the first several times you fire it, which is a good thing.

If you get one, check under the metal buttplate, these rifles were issued to switzerlands citizens and they would put their name and adress on a little piece of paper and put it under the but plate so it could be returned if it was ever lost.

Modern Firearms - Breda M1935 PG rifle

The Model 1935 or “PG” (Peso a Gaz, gas-operated) rifle was developed during early 1930s by famous Italian company Societa Meccanica Ernesto Breda. Originally designed to fire standard Italian rifle ammunition of the period, the 6.5x52 Carcano round, in semi-automatic mode, it was later redesigned to fire somewhat more powerful 7x57 Mauser ammunition with select-fire capability. The 6.5mm semi-automatic version, according to some sources, was pressed into Italian service in limited numbers in around 1943-44. The 7mm select-fire version was developed under contract from Costa Rica, and about 400 automatic Breda PG rifles were produced for Costa Rican government. Breda M1935 PG rifles were somewhat heavy, of complicated design, and expensive to make. Historical importance of these rifles is that Costa-Rican Breda PG automatic rifles were probably the first weapons to incorporate burst limiting mechanisms, which, when engaged, automatically cut the bursts of automatic fire after just 4 rounds, in an apparent attempt to conserve ammunition.
