    Family Pic (Military Rifles)

    I just got a Krag and I had to move around the long guns to make them all fit. (Sentry lies when the call it a 14 gun safe.) Thought I'd snap a photo while I had them out.

    Krag M1898
    M1903 Springfield
    M1917 Eddystone
    M1 Garand Springfield
    M1 Carbine Saginaw
    M14 Armcorp NM
    SP1 Colt
    M4gery PWA

    Good pic. I have the same group, other than the Krag.

    I really like old mil-surp weapons, plus they smell good (to me).

    Exellent collection.

    Now that you've got the U.S. stuff, its time to get started on the European rifles.

    Reminds me of the 11th Commandment the Moses didn't write down, due to lack of space. "Thou shalt covert they neighbors guns"

    I'd love to own both of the M-1's as well as the M-14

    Great family shot. Class act. Only one I don't care for is the SP1, was in Nam and saw it screw up. Take care you have a great collection.

    Nope. Still have way too much US stuff to get. Decided to years ago to limit my collection to US only. Of course I had to pic the most expensive genre of milsurp collecting. But it keep me off the streets.

    Thank you for your service. Nothing like being under fire and having your equipment fail to make you hate it. I'm told the Krag was not that great a weapon either. However they are part of our US miltiary history and therefore good or bad have a slot in my collection.

    How far back are you going to go?

    Do you shoot any of them much or reload for them?

    I shoot everything I own with one exception. A WWI Colt black army that the finish turned out to be original. Colts from 1918 just did NOT keep their finish. I'm actually upset because I'd bought a shooter not a museum piece. However I won't shoot it anymore because it worth much more than I paid.

    I do reload, but not for these yet. That is the eventual plan. There is a gent from my club that is a licensed ammo manufacturer. His reloads are so cheap that when I factor in my time and set up costs just keep buying from him. However I really need to get the supplies together so I can should politics turn against us and ammo costs continue to climb.

    Awesome collection. I want to do this with several nations, but I'm thinking the only viable ones will be Russia and the US. Still, cool family pic!
