What's left out there?
 
Just renewed, think this will be my last go around, stuff is drying up.

What do I need to get now, before they're all gone?

You make my brain hurt sometimes :(

I've been admiring the "hard chromed" Yugo M57 on classicarms.us. Classic Arms Inc. I've also started seeing some of these Walther P38 pistols on some different sites; Century must be selling some or something.

P38/P1's are good, Samco still has really nice 24/47's and Czech K98's.

Cheap Mausers. K-31s are going up. SMLEs have GONE up. I collect Mossberg 22s from the 40s and 50s, and the price of PARTS for those is out of sight. Just lost out on an EBAY auction for a SIGHT for a Mossberg- I quit bidding at $50!

OTOH, the guns I had before that HORRIBLE boating accident would have been worth a lot more than I paid for them back when.

If you really want a bargain, look at shotguns- especially pumps. Some of the Walther P-1s and Makarovs and CZs are still fairly cheap.

Get a K31. Not many were made, and they will dry up.

C@R drying up
 
Cant see how this is happening as firearms older than 50 years[made before may 1961] with a few exceptions qualify for C@R purchase.
Its true mil-surplus is getting expensive and hard to find, but everything else is getting higher in cost. So C@Rs are good investments and a lot of fun to own and shoot.

Heck, I like using it to buy spare parts with various companies...
many offer a discount, and they'll sell ya parts that you CANNOT get without an FFL,
like Firing pins...etc...but an FFL03 pays for itself with the parts discounts alone :)

Also great for older civilian weapons!! It ain't just for Mil-Surps!!

The CZ-52 has gone up quite a bit from just 3 years ago. For some reason, 91/30's are about the same, but M-44s are going for $200 at some places.:eek:

I've been torn between this and the Enfield.
