MILITARY SURPLUS RIFLES

Just wondering if anyone else on this forum collects military rifles from WWI, WWII, the Korean War, or Vietnam War. Whether Allied or Axis...Friend or Foe...or from any other combatant nation. I would like to see pictures and hear the story behind the weapon...

Below is a photo of my M1 Garand...built by the Springfield Armory in November of 1944. It is shown with an original M1942 16" bayonet and a M7 grenade launcher with fragmentation grenade holder and frag grenade.

Image

The M1 Garand is officially designated as United States Rifle, Caliber .30, M1 and was the first gas-operated semi-automatic "en-bloc" clip-fed rifle to be generally issued to the infantry of any nation. Called "the greatest battle implement ever devised" by General George S. Patton, the Garand officially replaced the bolt-action M1903 Springfield as the standard service rifle of the United States Armed Forces in 1936 and was subsequently replaced by the selective fire M14 in 1957.

Here's my 1944 stamped Izhevsh Arsenal Mosin Nagant M44...


Image


The M44 carbine was introduced into service in late 1944 and remained in production until 1955. It's much shorter in length than its predecessor, the 91/30 (39.9" vs. 50.7"). It features the addition of a permanently affixed, side-folding cruciform-spike bayonet. A groove for the folded bayonet is inlet into the right side of the stock. I got her cleaned up pretty good and my crate of ammo arrived this afternoon. It took me almost three hours to get all the external cosmoline cleaned off enough to be able to handle it without needing a shower afterward. The bore was a bit dirty, but its grooves are nice and deep. The crown looks new as well. It's in surprisingly great condition and all four serial numbers match (receiver, bolt, trigger guard, and butt plate).

This one's a 1930 Tula Arsenal 91/30 with a 'hex' receiver.

All serial numbers match and it's in amazing condition. The stock is in great shape and the bore is nice and deep. She's one helluva straight shooter!

Here's a rifle my Grandad brought back from Japan after WWII...

Arisaka Type 38 Carbine, 6.5x50mm

Image

Like most other Arisaka models from the era, the Japanese imperial seal, a chrysanthemum blossum, has been crudely removed from the receiver. These rifles were considered property of the empire and if a Japanese soldier thought he was in danger of being captured, he would destroy the seal before his rifle fell into enemy hands. The most common method of removal was by hacking at the seal with their bayonet...

Thank you Sir,

The stock has a few minor dings, but the bore and action are in great shape.

I have a couple of Lee Enfields that I regularly hunt with. As you can see they get a good run.

Thx !

Heard that...!!

Have any Mil-Surp handguns...?!

Pictured below is my P38 built by Spreewerke GmbH, Metallwarenfabrik, in Berlin/Spandau Germany in 1942 during the second World War. The Spreewerke inspection stamp consisted of an eagle above the number 88 (E/88), but the first 500 weapons made at the Spreewerke factory had Walther inspection stamps which consisted of an eagle over 359 (E/359) . (My specimen has a serial number of 246 and the Walther acceptance stamp E/359). The letters CYQ are the code used to designate construction at the Spreewerke plant, which produced around 285,000 units by the wars end. This specimen is also Wehrmacht stamped with an Nazi eagle over swaztika. The P38 is chambered for 9mm Parabellum and holds 8 rounds in the magazine. She also came with a black semi-hard leather holster that holds an extra magazine.

Image

The P38 was the first DA/SA pistol adopted by a major power. When the hammer is forward, squeezing the trigger will cock the hammer--by means of a draw bar on the right side of the frame--and fire the first round much like a DA revolver. After that the hammer remains cocked, and subsequent shots are fired in SA mode.If the hammer is cocked, rotating the safety lever on the left rear of the slide downwards will lock the firing pin in place. As the lever reaches the bottom, it trips the sear, allowing the hammer to travel forward. The safety can be left down, which blocks movement of both the trigger and hammer, or moved up, allowing the first shot to be fired in DA mode. A pin located above the hammer acts as a loaded chamber indicator.

Nice pics and recommend grabbing up any 98ks if possible. Even Russian Captures or bolt mis-match bringing good money lately. Supply seems to be drying up lately.
