Group Picture

Most of my C&R guns made a trip out of the safe at once, so I thought it was a good time for a group photo. I'll put it in as a link, since it's a pretty big picture.

To answer the one question, I like semi-autos over revolvers, though I have some revolvers, both modern and C&R.

The photo was just a snapshot, I stood on a chair and fired off a few pictures, and picked the one that came out best. I really didn't think about taking a picture until they were all out on the bench, then the thought came to me.

I picked up the Reising about a year ago on the auction, AA as I recall. It's pretty accurate for a gun made around 1920.

Ahhhh.... Thank you.

Nothing warms the heart during the holiday season like a family photograph. I think this should be shared with a wider audience so I'll move it to the handgun forum.

What are the Savages chambered for, .32 or .380? I have a '17 in .380 that I got with the original box of ammo.

Anyway, a nice collection.

Great picture, great collection, and after I showed my wife she promised to stop giving me such a hassle over my rather meager collection.

Actually, there are three, a 5.35 and two 7.65's. One was refinished, but it came with a group deal cheap, and it looks great.

By all means, just couldn't really figure where it might fit.

All three Savages are .32's, haven't found a .380 at a reasonable price yet. I have an early 1907, a transitional 1907, and a 1917. The two later ones are like new, almost perfect, the early one is a bit more beat, about 60-70%. I'm still looking for a .380...

I'm glad I was able to perform a public service.

I suspect some detail was lost in the group photo, but they were just laying there, begging to be photographed.

riddleofsteel, the Dreyse pistols are indeed 7.65, here's a closer look at one of them.

Are you open to adopt a 36 year old who would certainly take care of that nice collection when you pass on?

Very nice collection!

Geeesh, some of that stuff looks pretty old. Don't you think it's time to unload some of it and by some 'new" guns!

I'd be more than happy to take some off your hands.

What a nice collection...

...John.

Which one chambers that cartridge on the back of your bench?

OK...here's a serious question:

What do you know about year of mfr. on the Astra 400 and how it was used? Don't recall seeing one with a lanyard loop like that one. And does it have a magazine interlock?

I do know that the 600 was carried by certain members of the Luftwaffe as their issue sidearm ...regret selling the one I bought through the mail, but that was a looooong time ago.

All that stuff and not a single 1911? or even an 'a1?

I had tio give you a ribbing, Seriously though, that's a pretty picture to behold.

Gives me something to aspire to.
