I never did get to getting my C&R - bit late now as I have about stopped getting that stuff.

So - whatdya got in this category?

I have -

Handgun - CZ-52, Webley MkVI (does Mak count yet?)

SKS's - Norinco, Romanian and Yugo.
Ishapore Enfield, Jungle carbine, Mauser 1916 Spanish, Turk Mauser,
Mossin M38, Mossin 91/30. Oh and Hakim.

Think that's it :wink:

I'd say Maks should count based on historical criteria and not legality.

Personally I'm actually sort of light in C&R - couple of Mosins, couple of SKSes, but I see a lot that I would like to have some day. I'd really like to have the M1 family and the 1903A3. I like old battle rifles especially when they're the real thing.

M39 Finnish Mosin
M44 Polish Mosin
Yugo 59/66 SKS

I'm strongly considering a M38 Mosin and a 91/30 Mosin. A Yugo M48 would be nice as well. I have shot a K31 and really liked it, but I'm a little worried about long term ammo for it at good prices.

Rumor in the mill is Wolf is trying to contract out some Romanian ammo maker to make the 7.5x55 I believe it is? that the K31 is chambered in. FWIW, which is probably not much.

I need to get a K31 while they are still around and worry about ammo for it later.

That would be good.

Curent ammo is hard to find and around 20 bucks for 60 rounds.

Both of my K31s are tack drivers. I sure would lkie to shoot them more...

I got a deal from a guy at work that bought them when they were like 60 bucks.

This one is in perfect condition,and looks like it was made yesterday.Ive had collectors DROOL over it..:smile:

With Norma Ammo is is an absloute tack driver. I have won a few local contests with it over the years. As for recoil, its probably the sweetest shooting milsurp that Ive got.

If I ever see another in decent condition I am buying it. They quit making them ya know...

Id show ya a picture but my kids got the camera at the moment and he aint here...

Ahaha - I seem to remember a mention of that Cadet previously - it piques my interest. Any pic Betty, but don't worry if not.

And the Luger - nice - does it have a good barrel? The only ones I have seen close up were all but shot out, re the rifling.

That reminds me...

I forgot about my 16 guage 1897. It was made in 1901. I guess that qualifies as a C&R.

I once owned a pristine 7.7 Jap Arisaka with the antiaircraft sights and it was beautiful. Supposedly a friends grandfather bought it back from Okinawa. Had the mum and everything matched. Like an idiot, I sold it and a 6.5 Carcano for 60 bucks to put down on another gun. That was 25 years ago...long before I got bit by the Milsurp bug.

I kick myself in the tail everytime I look at the price of a war trophy with the Mum intact.

tatertot - welcome. :smile:

What ammo do you feed your Hakim? And what position is your gas valve?
