It's a 1944 Husqvarna. Put a mojo adjustable aperture on the rear. It's a pretty good shooting rifle.

I only have a couple milsurp hunters, and you all know what these rifles look like so pics aren't really necessary. They're stock and haven't been sporterized; I take some shots at feral hogs every once in a while.

1941 MN 91/30 - bayonet might come in handy if they charge?
1943 Inland M1 Carbine - with THIRTY-ROUND magazines *gasp*. It's really just a backup in case of emergencies.

morning 001: Ya the rim fire in Texas is no limit on cap. But the Rangers are really hung on the 5 round Cap. and that includes one in the chamber. I believe.I've hurd stories about a Ranger is the Mineral Wells area, that fine a hunter 250.00 for having 6 shots in his Weatherby, That is one in the chamber and 5 in the hole, so there pretty serious at least he was. But that hunter also had a hand held high power 14 volt airplane landing lite in his jeep. as Paul Harvey would say (Now you know the rest of the story) Be careful shoot clean Sunny

"in other states like Illinois you can not hunt with rimfire or and centerfire who's bullet diameter is less than 23 cal, meaning 5.45x39mm, 221, 222, 223, and even 22-250 are illegal for hunting."
you can hunt anything for coyotes. deer is only archery, shotgun, handgun an muzzleloader.

^^ Those commies finally learned to appreciate a nicely finished stock and a nice recoil pad.

Well, left it the way I like it in meaning I left the wood stock rather than putting on a synthetic one.

I just want you guys to know, and I mean this in the nicest possible manner, that I hate you all for the beautiful firearms you own. On the other hand I can send you the information you need to leave them to me in your will.

Dad's old Remington 1903, he sporterized in the 50's. The chamber was badly pitted so we recently rebarreled it with another original military barrel and put a newer scope on it. Very accurate.

Sporterized M1898 Springfield ("Krag-Jorgensen"), with an M1903 Springfield barrel, a Hart Arms Co. replacement forward-hinged magazine cover, and Pacific peep sight. The "sporterizing" was done in the late '30s or early '40s, most likely, as the barrel has a 1936 date. .30-40 Krag is a great deer cartridge!

Everything on the rack:



I used the M1 and my brother used the K31 to get deer, the Mosin Nagants not yet but they are sighted in with hunting ammo and will be in the field again next fall.

Nothing fancy. Just a Mosin 91/30 with a Darrell's scout mount.

^^^^^somebody sure likes his enfields^^^^^^^

someday, I want to have a nice collection of enfields like that, for now I'm forced to be content with my savage MK1* and bubba'd M47 in 45ACP(no worries, receiver is intact)
