I hate to say because I also hate to admit I sold it. My first was a Mauser 98 that had been rebarreled by Israel in 7.62x51 NATO. I paid $98. It was a good shooter and pretty interesting to see a rifle with Nazi ties, but used by a Jewish nation for its defense forces with a big Star of David with a sword and olive branch on the receiver. Wish I still had it.

Yeah the history of that particular group of rifles is one of the most unique I've heard of. Seeing the rifle that was the main weapon bent on the destruction of the Jews, then used by the Jews to gain independence and freedom, establish their own country, and fight for their sovereignty and safety against the Arabs.

My first was a Enfield 303 british. Followed by a SKS I paid $75 bucks for. I don't have either of those guns now. This was back in 86-88.

My current list..

Remington made 1903 Springfield 30-06
1929 Izhevsk Hex 91/30 Mosin Nagant
1953 Hungarian M-44 Carbine Mosin Nagant
91/59 Carbine 7.62x54R Mosin Nagant

I always wanted to find a nice FN made Mauser. Im sure if I live long enough the list will get bigger.

1903, 03A3, both were 30-06 bolt military, There MAY have been others, but I have not heard of them! ( and of course I'm all knowledgable )

My first is a 1913 P08 Luger I bought in 1975 for about $175. Took it out shooting last month and it was reliable as usual. Pretty good for a 100 year old gun!

1/49 Lee Enfield No.4 Mk.1, bought it in October 2010 for $325, not cheap but it is in excellent condition, no import marks.

Has BNP markings, I was told by an Enfield aficionado that almost all of those went to S. Africa, he didn't know how it ended up here.

FB Radom VIS 35, 9mm. made in 1943ish under Nazi occupation. paid $350 for it 8 years ago, they're now going for around $700.

i'm thinkin about selling it because I've kinda lost interest in the gun & I now have a more accurate & reliable 9mm than the Radom. Lots of people would tell me not to sell it but I just don't have a desire to keep it anymore.
