Time to inaugurate the RO:O forums with some gun pics. :D

For those who never saw the thread in the old forums, basically this is a thread to post whatever military guns you have currently or recently bought - and discuss them.

My Set:
bothmn_cropped_800.jpg


Click here for a huge version of that pic

From top to bottom:
Mosin Nagant 91/30
Year: 1936
Condition: Excellent, with shiny bore

Mosin Nagant M44
Year: 1945
Condition: Excellent, with shiny bore and laminated stock. It has some nicks, but most do anyway.

Bulgarian Makarov Pistol
Year: 1970 (first year of production)
Condition: Absolutely mint. It looks a tiny bit more worn now, but I've put some good use into it.

And lastly:

Yugoslavian M59 SKS
Year: No year markings (like most Yugos), but produced in the late 50's-1960's
Condition: Excellent. The thing is a bloody tack driver. I'm a horrible shot, and this thing makes ME look good.

Beautiful WWI-era Mauser example, btw. Quite pretty and well-preserved. My father has one, but it's not nearly as in good condition. How does she shoot?

There's a P38 on that page Krokar

I've cleaned it up a bit, the metal, but the wood was as i got it, all the numbers are matching and everything, it was a real find, and for $400 australian, got a bargain i reckon. It shoots well too, the only problem being the minimum graduation of 400 meters!

My M59/66 I had a problem with it when i took it to the range. The bullet casings would get jammed as the bolt was shutting, quite frustrating. Since then i took the spring out and lubed the hell out of it and made sure the hole to the piston in the barrel for the gas was clear of any kind of gunk. I have to test it to make sure it works.

M44 and 91/30.

You sir are too modest, that is a great gun collection, can see you are a man oif taste and style, add a mosin 91/30 and an m44 and that set would be close to perfect

Fresh outta the boxes from my friendly UPS man. 1942 M38 and 1943 91/30.
While not pretty, both are great shooters.

Was gonna get a picture of the Kar98 , but appears the digital camera has gone MIA. :(

Not that it's a competition, at least I hope not as I'd wouldn't even be in the running considering some of the collections I've seen!

My lot, the Russians:

The Germans:

No change since I got the G43, been saving up to pay for a big dentist bill :(
