My C&R Collection (so far....)


http://imageshack.us/a/img163/4508/mycollection1.jpg

(It's getting there but still prob pales in comparison to some - I've only been doing this for a few years)

From left to right:
1942 MN (Izhevsk)
1942 Laminate MN (Izhevsk)
1941 Finnish M39
1943 Enfield No 4 Mk 1
Yugo 24/47
1953 Polish M44
1934 Steyr M95 (Austrian)

(And yes I know I need still need slings for some of them)

FYI - The ones that are in bold where purchased this year?

So what C& R guns did buy/trade/get in 2012?

(If you can"t see the pic - let me know)

Springfield 1903
1942 Izhevsk 91/30
1944 Izhevsk 91/30(bought for sporterizing purposes)
BSA Enfield NO4 MK1(parts gun bought for sporterizing)
Remington 1903A4(didn't even know it was an A4 when I bought it, thought it was a bubba'd A3 and so did the seller)
French MAS36(either 1944 or 45, haven't been able to get a definitive answer on the serial dating process)
Arisaka type 44(traded for the 1903A4, arriving tomorrow)
Arisaka type 99(traded for the 1903A4, arriving tomorrow)

Ah, yes. A rather admirable collection, indeed.
However, it does seem like there is something glaringly missing here? What is it?
Ah ... revolvers.
But you have to suit yourself.
I sold my last long gun this year, so I have only revolvers and pistols.
But who knows what the future holds.

There's one pistol I would like to get;
nagant revolver

I've always wanted one - so will see but being that, I'm a long-gun man.

I'm also a long gun man but I must say that I kindof want a norwegian 1914...and that's because it's the only 1911 variant I'm aware of that uses the metric version or 45ACP.

Should have bought a Finn. They are the best of the Mosin Nagants.

4V50 Gary "Should have bought a Finn. They are the best of the Mosin Nagants" - never too late, just have to keep looking!

Yes they are - It will out-shoot anything I have in my C&R collection.
(the yugo comes close though) I just don't see how those finn's carried those bad boys around; they are extremely heavy!

Don't forget the sharp, pointy, poking things(what my daughter call bayonets) for them. Makes them look complete.

Sharp pointy things....

sgms - yup on da list, along with a few more slings...

Also reloading equipment, the 303 ammo is getting hard come by and more expensive and the steyr ammo (8X56r) is.....don't get me started on that one!

the only sharp pointy pokey things I have for my C&Rs are the one that came with the 42 91/30 and the MAS36... I didn't even know it had one until my little brother started playing with it and revealed it's hiding place.

What did you get buy or trade for in 2012?

Nice rifles. I have a few rifles but my passion is handguns.

(In the year 2012 my true love gave to me...) 3 P38s, 2 Lugers and a Star model B (WaA D20) in a pear tree!

Very very nice Winchester 73, those pistols are great. I'll add a Nambue just for a bit of balance.
