  • My collection of military rifles thus far.

    Hey everybody, lets get the collectors forum up and running! :lol:

    Thought I might help kick it off with my collection, you've probably seen most before but I guess it's a fresh start from here :P

    First off, my [SA] marked M1891 with Finnish two-piece stock, a 1907 Serb contract Izhevsk barrel and Westinghouse receiver:




    Next is a 1941 Izhevsk Finn-capture 91/30 round receiver:




    1935 Tula Finn-capture Hex receiver, has been sanded, reblued and coated in pine tar by the Finns.



    1921 Tula Finn-capture:



    1941 Portuguese contract Mauser K98:




    1955 Cugir Romanian M44:



    1942/43 Lithgow No1 Mk3 (Metal is stamped 1942 but the stock is dated 1943)




    Sorry about the poor quality of some of the images, my camera has seen better days.

    Edit: Swapped some of the low quality pics for higher quality, turns out my phone takes better images than my HD camera : :S

      I sure do, they're about as honest and original as a Mosin can get in my opinion (Along with anything that hasn't been altered or refurbished of course), I don't know what I'd do with my life if the Finns weren't so kind as to save these rifles from refurbishment :P

          Of course, that was my intention all along! :lol:

          I forgot all about the SA marked slings, thanks for reminding me!
          Might order a few this week.

            Very nice. Love the clear photos. Wish we had nice cameras years ago when the market was flooded with Mil surps

                    Awesome! I've never seen a Hungarian 91/30 before, heard they're very good quality, very rare too. Looking forward to the pics!

                  Finally.. my Hungarian 48.M 1950 all matching , very happy indeed. 8 for Rare on 7.62x54r.net. So lucky I got it. Beautiful condition, I love the walnut grain. Will have a T-53 to add in the coming weeks. The (Albanian) T-53 in excellent condition, all matching.

                  Ach, very nice coyote!

                  The bluing is superb and what a beautiful grain on that stock. Never seen blued sling escutcheons before, that's a new one to me! Wonder if they are Hungarian-specific

                    Pardon the ignorance Soviet Samurai.
                    What timber is the stock on the 1955 Cugir Romanian M44 made from?
                    Is it Beech, or treated differently?

                      From my understanding, it is actually Birch, but I must admit I'm far from an expert on timber.
                      Edit: I don't think the last pic I took represents the appearance of the stock very well, it appears glossier than in reality.
                      Here's another.
