This is just the beginning to my collection... Next guns in line is a Japanese Arisaka and American Springfield M1903 and then on to the semi automatics :)

    You're off to a good start. I've always wanted a Lee Enfield. Look forward also to some range reports in the future.

    The semi automatics are next... I'm actually looking at an M1 carbine now and if the price is right, I'm going to get it... I wanted to start off with the bolt action rifles because they are the cheapest to start out with and I wanted to start out with a solid foundation

    What a great start!

    I've got a 1925 Izzy hex Dragoon, all serials intact, but the stock was

    re-arsenaled with 91/30 wood and barrel bands.

    I've also got a 1908- 6.5mm Carcano. FWIW, the Italians may not be the

    brightest, but they have to be among the bravest to go to war with

    that carbine...

    IIRC, 7.35 is a re-barrel of a 6.5, in the later productions.

    I love carbines, and I'm sure it shoots fine, I just would hesitate to

    trust it under pressure, for a few good reasons...

    I've considered a WW2 long gun collection as well. Seems fun and doesn't have to be too terribly expensive (although the ammo for some of them can get a bit hard to find and expensive.) I also love the history.

    Nice collection, if you are going to stick to the antique firearms, you may want to get a C&R Lic. ($15.00). You could then have them shipped directly to your door.

    Was the Krag used in WW2?

    lol, That is just my WW2 gun list. I have another list that would probably take half a life time to complete, not counting new designs in guns. The Krag is definitely on that list. :D

    answer to texaswoodworker

    I don't see any rifles from Finland on your list.
    The M39 is a very interesting variant of the Mosin Nagant. Better stock, better trigger heavier barrel and in general I thing a very good military bolt action rifle.

    A collection of the primary rifles from the 'major' countries of World War II (or World War I for that matter) should keep the typical collector busy and constantly looking for a good while. (Deciding on the 'major' countries will take a while.) Which, in my (alleged) mind, is what collecting is about. (Deciding on the 'major' countries will take a while.)

    If one adds variants like 'cavalry carbines' and such, the list gets longer and more difficult to fill.

    Adding handguns extends the process.

    What the heck, it's what keeps us out of the pool halls and beer joints, right?

    Gmaster456 made a great comment I would like to second: "I love the history." One large indicator of a culture's technology is the weaponry used by their army. It seems that underneath a number of superficial considerations, weaponry and technology go hand in hand.

    Carry on.
