For all those who suffer from Mosinitis and overall addiction to mil-surp firearms. Admit your condition and the side affects (ie your collection). I'll go first, I got my first Mosin last February and hoping to add another soon, a 1938 Tula all-matching and a beautiful wood stock but refurbed. I also have a 1953 CZv52, 1944 Lee Enfield No4 Mk1, a 1943 National Postal Meter M1 Carbine, and a 1918 M1917 Eddystone sporter. Hoping to add a 1968 Vietnam bringback SKS and a CMP Garand.

So far I've got:

Mas 49/56
Mosin 91/30
M91 Carcano
Yugo SKS

My favorite has to be my MAS. It's in perfect condition and I got a great price on it.

Be glad you dont have Ameri-rifle-itus, I found it to be a way worse disease, with much more expensive treatments......

That combined with my "Genetic defect" (See my sig..) will be the end of me for sure.... :( :( :(

:p

Also I'll be picking up a Russian Makarov I have on layaway Friday when I get paid next.

I'm glad I like foreign guns my wallet couldn't take collecting US Mil-Surplus... I'd be forced to do things I would not be proud of :)

That SKS of mine is getting me addicted, too bad its about 10 years too late for cheap ones.

I swore I would never own an Arisaka, because of who used it. But I'm starting to come around to the fact that a gun is a tool and just that. Can't blame the tool. I probably still wouldnt buy one without the mum though.

Mind if I ask how much it was? I have one, and I see them on Ebay going for 150-200 bucks!! :eek:
$50 + $11 shipping. I got it on eBay and yes lots of overpriced bayonets on eBay but if you are patient there are still reasonable prices on some.
