Nice to see the staff set this forum up from Jeffenwulf's suggestion. I look forward to perusing this forum and learning and sharing.

Maybe we can build some enthusiasm by starting with a picture thread? Maybe, your favorite C&R firearm? Or your favorite two or three you have?

Here's my newest, a very early Navy Victory from the spring of 1942:

A WWII Remington Model 11 riot gun. I don't know why they have such a mystique, but there's just something about a combat shotgun...

I need to get the correct forearm for it someday.

the ones I posted are brothers to the CZ-52... ( I also have one like pictured above, that USMC posted ), in the same case of old Cezch guns

BTW... that Colt is awesome...

I have this baby... I had to replace the grips, as the factory hard rubber ( similar to yours ) was cracked... I still keep an eye out for a set of good original grips... think the white ones look a bit cheesy... even with the Colt medallion...:)

Yep, there are Navy marked victories. The one with the stamping on the sideplate like above is the early type, and rarer. Later ones just had "Property U.S. Navy" on the top strap left hand side (the same place the leased British models have "U.S. Property" stamped on them). Both Navy variants command a premium over plain US victory models, and thus it's important to avoid some fakes that are out there. There is a book called "US Handguns of WWII: secondary pistols and handguns" or something like that, by Charlie Pate. It is the reference. The "Standard Catalog of Smith & Wesson" also has a page of two of details, but not as much as Pate. Learning the serial sequence/dates, and how to avoid the .38 S&W chambered British models are the major things to know about buying a proper, unmolested Victory.

Actually that would make a good sticky for this forum; maybe in a while I could compile tips about that and do that.

Here's a C&R find. Above the Kel-Tec in the picture is a US Revolver Co. 7 shot DA .22. It eats Aguila Super Maximums quite nicely, is pretty accurate and is a great pocket gun. It does just fine for a "get off me" gun.

Oh yeah: Finally, a C&R forum! Yes!

I believe this one is appropriate for this thread as it was manufactured more than 50 years ago and is, at least to me, very special. My Grandfather's (1903-1979), 1953 Star Second Model F Series .22. I just acquired it this year after it sat unused for at least 30 years. Had it professionally disassembled, cleaned and checked. Fires like a dream...thanks Grandpa!

DoctorXring, sweet looking k98, especially when you add in the extra "neat" factor of it being Isreali. Where'd you get it? I really dont need a second k98, but I would pick one of those up just for the neatness and irony of it being an Isreali version of a gun well know for being used by the nazis in WWII. I can seriously kinda smell the irony, and hear the slap in the nazi's face, from here. That and the crest is very cool looking, and I dont have any Isreali guns in my collection, so that hole will need to be filled eventually, and I suspect I'll never be able to fill it with an UZI like I would REALLY like too.

jrfoxx --

Thanks. I was lucky on this one. A gunsmith sold this to me a few
years ago. He had picked it up cheap and was going to break the
rifle down for a sporter. He said the rifle was so nice he couldn't
bear to do it and put it up for sale, hoping a collector would find it.
That was my lucky day.

There were, as I understand, a number of these new condition K98
rebuilds brought in I think in the 90's. One pops up now and then.
I have two of them. The other is built on an FN action. I have two
other used ones that are built on German WWII actions. Yes, they are
definitely full of irony. They are also good shooters. This target
is from one of my WWII action guns.

The condition of these rifles ranges from total beaters with sewer or
shot out bores to these like new guns. Pay the premium for a nice one.
This is a solid collectible with a excellent future.

My checklist for an Israeli K98 is:

1. Excellent bore
2. German action desired, but not necessary
3. Numbers matching on receiver and bolt
4. 7.62 number burned into bottom of stock a plus, but
they all don't have that.
5. Star of David stamp on receiver highly desired

The top one is a DA, .22LR 7-shot revolver made by US Revolver Co (aka Iver Johnson) sometime around 1910-1920, I'm guessing. It loves Aguila Super Maximums and works perfectly. It is tiny, tiny, tiny & looks much better in real life than in the picture.

AC-42 P-38 and Army Victory. The Victory I got from the estate of a doctor who served in the Pacific in WW2. A pilot gave it to him for protection from the still-lurking Japanese and the doctor brought it home after the war and kept it in the house for protection. We all knew he had it from his stories, but no one had seen it or knew where it was. When the family found it after the funeral, it still contained five rounds of unfired WW2-dated ammunition.

How do you guys get your pictures taken so up close? I try and it just turns out fuzzy. I have a pretty decent camera that I just got for Christmas.

Most camera lenses won't let you get clear results form more than 4 or 5 feet away, so the trick is to stand back at least that far and use the zoom for closer shots.

My Mosin Nagant M44. There's nothing special about it other than the fact that it cost me a whopping $80 (with matching serial numbers).

My Mosin Nagant 91/30. I've had this one for a while now, and it's been well loved.

A mind-boggling selection :eek: of rifle racks, including choice of woods, stains, felt or carpet liners, etc. Some made to order; some ready off-the-shelf; most require simple assembly (screwdriver).

GUNZABLAZIN - you got most of us beat on backdrops. And here I was, just posing my guns on a regular old cedar fence.

Beeker77 - Thanks for the info - they have a lot of great stuff.

BACKDROPS? The striped (backdrop) is a couch down in my mancave, gunroom. The white backdrop is a blanket on top of a table!!! I would prefer to take pictures outside, but this long and miserable Indiana winter just won't let up!
