Hey /k/, so today is my birthday. I've got $1000 saved for gun purchases and I'd like to get myself something nice. What are some cool C&R or antique guns you guys would recommend?
Also C&R General
Do you want like one or two nice military rifles or would you like a decent variety of stuff?
Yeah, i just got a ton of scholarship money and need to spend some before i get audited. I want to start my collection but I am living in an apartment and only have a truck, so storage seems like a bit of an issue
OK, so you've already got a solid start in collecting. I think you need more semi-auto milsurp. Something like an M1 Garand, Swedish AG42, Egyptian Hakim, or an FN49.
Mas 49. Not the 49/56 (which is still cool but not nearly as sexy).
Or reloading equipment and a bunch of dies, because if you like shooting milsurp regularly you should reload.
I had a Hakim a while back but it wasn't really my cup of tea. May have been my fault but I kept getting stuff blown in my face from the DI system. What's a good price for an 8mm FN49?
I'm planning on getting an M1 soon, what other C&R guns should I get?
russian capture about $600-$800
no russian capture, reich marks only, a fuckload.
quality really didnt go down, only real difference is early war models had no sight hood, which i prefer.
>mfw I realize I am from Germany and will never have a chance to own this rifle
>tfw I would happily pay 2 grands and more for it
I dont think that would be the problem, since there are no NS insignias on it (wearing old medals is a problem indeed). But there are so many restrictions to owning the gun (not even using it) that it is virtually impossible to legally own it
There are definitely k98's with swatstikas and/or SS runes
i read the thread and it looks like you need another semi auto. someone suggested an m1 garand, but its a wayyyy over rated service rifle. its too heavy to want to carry it too long, its too long to weild effectively indoors, it recoils like hella (thats not an "owee it hurts" recoil thats a "holy shit this thing kicks too hard how can i double tap anything" recoil) its ammo capacity is weird and ineffecient, it can have trouble with modern ammunition (newer ammo is hotter and can cause excessive wear) and when youre done shooting its a pain in the ass to have to look around in the grass for your clip
go get an m1 carbine, it did everything the plastic and alumium of the m16 was supposed to do but with good old walnut and steel.
>tl;dr m1 carbine
I have the RCBS Rok Chucked and it's great for the volume I use. Great to learn on and even if you upgrade to a progressive press you can still keep it for your smaller volume calibers.
I don't have a Lee or any experience with one, but I've not heard any negatives about them.
Does it have to be C&R long guns?
Bless the based historian who got the BATFE to declare these C&R.
Interesting, what does C&R mean specifically? I've just spent a bit reading about it, but what exactly does it entail? I've only been able to get that normal rules don't apply, but I haven't been able to find a list of the rules that DO apply.
Unsurprisingly, the ATF's website was of little help.
>apply for C&R
>basically just do a lot of paperwork
>get guns shipped to your doorstep
To be recognized as C&R items, 478.11 specifies that firearms must fall within one of the following categories:
Firearms which were manufactured at least 50 years prior to the current date, but not including replicas of such firearms;
Firearms which are certified by the curator of a municipal, State, or Federal museum which exhibits firearms to be curios or relics of museum interest; and
Any other firearms which derive a substantial part of their monetary value from the fact that they are novel, rare, bizarre, or because of their association with some historical figure, period, or event.
>Any other firearms which derive...
This is the main part that didn't seem to be clarified, i.e. what is "substantial" and fucking everything is associated with a historical period, etc.
I assume this is one of those things that was written in as a loophole for someone with lots of cash that doesn't apply to us poor folk, but seriously, the wording of this law basically allows literally everything.
>mfw he's right
What the actual fuck, man? I mean, I knew the ATF was a lawless organization, but I thought they were at least consistent in oppressing people.
Need to update this got another mosin. Will probably do it tomorrow. I love these guns.
>>basically just do a lot of paperwork
Hearty kek bruh. It was like 2 pieces of paperwork, the most work being the drive to the police station to get the Chief's signature on the form.
