I was the same way with Arisakas years back. Better start building gun racks because the closets will be full soon.

everybody has their favorites. if I could afford it I would collect no less than one of every US military piece from 1898 up to the M14. then again much like gun plummer, adding a type 38(concentric circle of course), type 97 sniper, type 99 take down and italian made navy arisaka would make me a very happy feller.

Remember when a mosin was $89! Lately I've seen them for $3-400!!? Although Cabela's has mosin "sniper" rifles with a period replica scopes for $600. I guess I shouldn't have pass on that crate of 20 mosins I saw a few year's back for $800. Shoulda woulda coulda.

Beautiful collection!

The number one cause of death in the 20th century. 290,000,000 citizens were first disarmed and then murdered by their own governments. This number does not include those killed in war.
