View Full Version : Your first C&R?

August 4, 2010, 10:36 AM
Seeing a lot of posts about getting a C&R license made me think this might be a fun thread.
What was the first C&R you got after getting your license?
Mine was a French MAS 49-56. Semi-auto rifle. Cool gun, kind of expensive ammo, (no more surplus available), but fun all the same.

Just got my C&R license this week. I was planning on adding a Swiss K31 to my collection, but I don't think I will be making that purchase right away as I had planned.

I already have a MN M44, but would like to add an M38, and a Mauser at some point. Maybe some handguns, too.

Persian Mauser 98/29. I should have stopped there, but I didn't.

I should have stopped there, but I didn't.

Know that!!! As evidenced by my phone book... ah, bound book, hard to tell the difference. :D

A Mosin-Nagant 91/30, hex receiver. I originally got my C&R to expand my Mosin-Nagant collection, but ironically, I've since sold more Mosins than I've purchased because the ones I had weren't very desirable models. I've used the funds to expand my collection in other directions. :)

Yugo M24/47.

mine will be either a cz52, or a nagant revolver.

Don't have a license yet, but my first C&R was a Czech VZ24 8mm Mauser.

First one in general: Kar98K

First one I actually used my license for: K-31 (my fav so far).

Mosin Nagant M44 with lammy stock for $80.

First, a Swiss K-31 and a Mosin Nagant 91-30. Since then, have added a Mosin Nagant M-38, m-44, an M-1 Carbine, a Yugo M59 SKS, a Nagant M1895 revolver, and an Enfield No. 4 Mk I.

I still want an M1 Garand, a Mauser K98, and an Arisaka.

We'll see.

Three (3) Yugoslavian SKS's. Sold two and kept one, wish I had kept two instead.

Mine was a hex receiver Mosin-Nagant (dated 1927), with a round receiver MN (dated 1943) in the same transaction.
(Brought one back from VN in '68. Sniper model w/o scope or mount. Took a liking to them)
Since then, SMLEs, M44s, and a few top break revolvers....
It's an addiction.... but, since I don't drink or smoke, I hafta spend my $$$ on SOMEthing, don't I?

Enfield No. 4 MK I...still have yet to give it a good cleaning. Have had my license for about 5 months or so now. I also have under my license:

2.) MN 91/30 with hex receiver
3.) Walnut K31
4.) Yugo Md 57 Tokarev
5.) CZ 82 (which I didn't purchase under my C&R

Thinking my next purchase will be either a VZ 24 or a Yugo 24/47...but more than likely a bunch of ammo for my Mosin and Enfield. :D

I'll let you know tomorrow ;)

i'm standing at the door bouncing from foot to foot waiting on the brown truck o goodness to get here with my goodies.

My first C&R purchase was a K31 from classic arms and 440 rounds of GP11

My second C&R purchase was a yugo MD57 from SOG and around 2500 rounds of ammo for it.

Both arrive today!

M38 and K31 bought at the same time. Added a Garand later.

And that's where my dream ended, I've since let my C&R lapse. Can't afford all those savings.

A pair of Winchester 1897's. Well, that's kind of cheating, because I didn't use my license, I inherited them.


Like most everyone else, my first C&R purchase was a Mosin Nagant 91/30. I think that it was a plain-Jane round-receiver Izhevsk.

oh... i like the shotguns. now i have to fond more money!

I put it off forever, but finally got my C&R this year, in May/June. I can't say what my "first" was, since I ordered a bunch at once.

My first shipment was a Moisin Nagant with hex receiver, CZ-82, P-64, and Yugo Tok from S.O.G, followed shortly after by a Star Model B from Sarco.

I got a Yugo M57 Tokarev.
