I'm just gonna go down the list and post whatever milsurp rifles I post until I stop
How the fuck do you do that? Is it just copper wire or what? What is underneath the wire?
Wire wrap and a metal bolt. wire wrap is soldered on.
Brits had to reinforce the stocks so they wouldnt split from the recoil of firing rifle grenades
Well I think it's fiiiiiiiiiiine
Shooting AR guuuuuuuuuuuns
or takin' a riiiiiiiiide on the kalashnikov train
Switch on shooting with a striker gun
Yes, shoot what you want to if you want, cause you can shoot anythiiiing
I know we've come a long way
We're changin day to daaaaay
but tell me
Where has the milsurp gone?
hopefully i get the chance to take some better photos this weekend with better light
MOSINS WILL ALWAYS BE CHEAP HURR I DON'T UNDERSTAND THAT CURRENTLY IMPORTED MILSURP HAS A ARTIFICALLY DEFLATED PRICE DURRR HWY SHOULDN'T I SPORTERIZE IT
>mfw see mint condition M44's like mine edge up to ~$00 for a time
>laugh at all the fuddits that ruined theirs
>can't wait to see my face when it's worth over a grand in ~8 years
Also 2/3s of my WW2-correct rifles.
nice. yea I paid ~$100 for mine when they first started jumping up.
I almost scored a parade one 2 months ago (stainless with hand picked red laminate stock - east german) for $190 but a friend beat me to it. He said when he dies i can get it from his widow :-(
you find a surplus grenade rifle lol.
The british started doing that in WW1, but ive only seen those rifles in pictures. WW2 was when they stopped. Ishapore in India keep making them for a few years after their independence. you can find them but you have to hunt. i got lucky and it was my first gun.
waiting for the right finnish m39 and I feel my nugget collection is complete enough for me. after that, I think it's time for some US rifles.
Gone to graveyards one by one....
muh nugget moderna
I actually almost want to mount this to it though
Is it stuck on there or something, even when you press down on the two retaining springs? Perhaps try spraying some lube on the part of the stock in front of the band, and try to get some under there as well if you can.
Also, another new acquisition of mine (in addition to the Mukden/Hoten Type 38 carbine in >>23054957)
Can you at least push the rear band over the retaining springs? You shouldn't need to worry too much about ruining the wood's finish if you can at least do that. Also, you do need to take off the front barrel band first in order to take the rear one entirely off the rifle. Do you know how to take the front one off? There's a flat spring under the stock behind the band that you have to push down to take it off.
Just sold my 3 spam cans of 7.62x54r and my 91/30 and then turned around and ordered a K-31 and 240 rounds of GP-11. Did I do good?
Fun fact: In 1932, the K-31 cost around 151 Swiss Francs. The ratio between Swiss Francs to US Dollar since then has remained at a steady 0.95 to 1.05 franc to dollar. In today's money, if a K-31 were made today, it would cost over $2,600 to produce.
Yeah, I'm kind of excited. Can't wait for that fucker to get here.
Milsurp got bought. 8mm and .303 was bought. Supplies dwindled and dried. Very sad.
Now I'd say yours is more reputable but jesus that price is a waste considering the M1 was 85 USD. I hope the swiss weren't that silly.
>Supplies dwindled and dried.
You just gotta know where to dig.
-available in your country
-hacked up by bubba
-in original condition
-a collector who will part with one
-at a reasonable price
the number gets smaller as you go down
to the point where I can only find a handful of no4 Enfield in a country once saturated by them
WHERE AND HOW
This is the Swiss we're talking about here. I have no doubt that they'd put as much effort into their arms as they did their watches.
Remington UMC .303 seems to be the best bet for factory mil loads. Other than that all I can say is to drop the $200 or so on a reloading set like the single stage that lee puts out.
all i need is smaller tires and to mount the electric adapter and plug on my truck and i can figure out if i can use this to haul stuff for money or other things.
>WHERE AND HOW
Auctions and small gun shops.
Just spent a year trying to find a No1. Mk 3 in the US. Every single one was chopped up or refinished or ridiculously priced.
I dread the day I have to look for a No. 4, but they seem to have survived better than the No.1 Mk. 3's
Spiraling the black hole of milsurp glory that is my collection. (or I wish that was the case, lol)
