Brass capped nugget edition
>>41481404First for daddy's money
(You)s are coming in early this year I see
I got 300 bucks to spend on a mil-surp. Found a type 38 arisaka with a matching bolt for $250... i have a press so ammo is kinda whatever should i get something else or are 6.5 arisakas cool
>>41481586what's the condition?
>>41481592Very little bluing but it seems to be in tact and in fairly good shape.
>>41481595I'd prolly jump on that desu milsurp isn't going to get cheaper.
>>41481404>tfw I could finally buy guns when nuggets hit $300 going rate>tfw no nuggetAt least I have my mausers. I need more surp but a modern handgun and school comes first. I just wish that I didn't have to go back to my LGS to have them send their FFL again because the dealer I'm buying from didn't get it the first time apparently. Why is my first handgun purchase such a hassle?
>>41481586My Type 38 is probably in my top 5 surplus rifles to shoot.
Bought this mk2 at a gunshow last weekend for $300, despite the pitting it has, the rifling is in good shape, might get it recrowned tho.
>>41481670That's a good deal.>Recrowned Check the crown first, it might look shit. But it could be fine. My Mosin has a horrific looking one, but it's actually fine.
>>414815866.5x50SR has almost no recoil and minimal report. Very nice to shoot.
>>41481586Go for the Arisaka. 6.5 Jap is incredibly fun and easy to shoot. Even out of my carbine it's easier on your shoulder than even an SKS.
>>41481688It does look kinda crappy, but you cant judge a book by its cover. Just gotta take out for a spin and see how it shoots.
Holy shit I actually won
>>41481935Congrats buddy. Welcome to the winners club.
Anyone here ever order from Sarco, Inc? I need a tall Swedish mauser front sight and they have it $10 cheaper than Liberty Tree.
>>41481834lose weight and get properly fitting clothes you dork
>>41481957Thanks but I've never used the gunbroker checkout shit before so that's the biggest obstacle here
>>41481935>The next step is to pay.Good price. Market for US Krags seems to be in a slump this year. >>41481979My experiences with SARCO have been mostly good. >41481990Post 'surp.
Why do some nuggets have brass caps?
>>41482059We just don't know. Copper rivets > brass caps anyway.
How much would 10 original izzy stripper clips be worth
Does anyone know how to remove storage grease from your surp? Someone said oven degreaser but I’m not sure about that.
>>41482906I can’t spell the fucking name you worthless nitpicking autist tell me what ww2 era stripperclips manufactured in the arsenal that starts with an “I” are worth
>>41483651Probably close to a dollar a piece. I bought some in a group of 5 for $3 at a LGS
>repro cleaning rod on the way>rear sight screw thing on the way>bayonet currently being bid on She'll be complete soon lads. Pretty sad I won't get to shoot her much, this gun feels good. >>41483604I've always used boiling water followed by compressed air/ blow drier for the metal and the black bag trick or a hair dryer for the wood
>>41483604Since it's summer now, you could try leaving it inside the car wrapped up in something absorbent.
Anyone collect helmets? I have a size M ACH, but need a L. Looking to trade shells.
>>41483604>>41483883If you are referring to cosmoline an junk in the action and receiver just take it apart and clean normally if it isn't that bad. Thats what I did on a K31.If its in the stock like this guy said you can put it in a safe and hot space and the oil seeps out. Pic related I used a hair dryer on, and left it in my hot garage by a window to get the oil out of it.
>>41483604Dunk/soak metal in mineral spirts, dissolves the cosmoline pretty gud. Heat will wick it out of wooden components like stocks. Patience and elbow grease will do the rest. At least that what i did with my nugget
Got one of the new TTCs from Aimsurplus in. Looks like it's in really good condition for surplus from the 50s. No holster wear at all, barrel looks like it was barely shot, the finish is blued instead of parkerized, and the finish itself looks to be in good condition. Thing's pretty greasy, so I'll be giving it a mineral spirits bath this weekend. I'm very pleased with it, especially considering that I paid $219 base for it. Some people on Gunboards are reporting that theirs are fully or partially parkerized, so be prepared.If you don't have a true TT-33 (not one of those Yugo M57s, the real deal), this is a good time to get one since this current wave of them from AIMsuplus and Sweaty Ben is probably one of the last batches surplus shops will be getting. Get one now before you have to pay $300+ from some pawn shop at Gunbroker.
>>41483842How much did the rod cost ya
>>41484150http://www.nambuworld.com/parts.htmDude has quite a few repro parts, seems popular on gunboards
>>41483979I though he was talking about wood stocks.Sorry I'm not really good at reading so much.
>>41481935Winning always feels good.
>>41484961that would go well with my 96/11, gratz
>>41481573The (You) season keeps getting earlier and earlier. I guess it's global warming.
>>41481935Damn. That's a good price.>>41485044I'm thinking about selling pic related soon...
>>41485941(You)s don't grow down here as well as they used to.
I'm starting to get more interested in semi-auto surp.What sort of weapons should I look into?I've already got an SKS.
>>41485941 Oh shit just realized school just got out for a lot of states that's probably the reason. All these noguns teens posting now that they aren't being indoctrinated by the public school system.
>>41486019Hakim the meme
>Irwin-Pedersen M1 carbine for saleIt's fascinating how guns that were so bad they couldn't be accepted by the government during a war are more valuable than those produced by quality contractors.The strangeness of collecting.
>>41481404thats some nice dirt rod u got there m8.
>>41485967>>41484961swiss rubies are my favourite to shootfrom an ergonomics pov.i mostly shoot surplus ammo and its excellent. does anyone have experience with s&b 7,5x55?
Carry over from yesterday
>>41488849Heres most of the rest
>guy always happens to bid one penny more than me>enter random number >guy gets that random numberWhat the fuck is this shit?
>>41488871nice essential collection
>>41481979>SarcoOrdered no. I live less than a half hour away from their showroom. My dealings with them have varied from meh to excellent (really depends on who you end up with). Give them a go if they have what you need and are the cheapest option.It used to be better but if you are ever in the Lehigh Valley area of PA, I would suggest a stop by to peruse their wears.
>>41489169Autobid system that will automatically bid one bid increment higher than you till it reaches the their maximum. For example, Joe blow wants to.pay at most $100. Anon wants the same thing but only is willing to pay $95 and the bid increment is $1. When anon puts his bid in, it will say Joe blow bid $96. But if anon rethinks things and says, no I am willing to pay $105, then when anon puts in his second bid, it will show $101. Short story, online auctions like eBay and Gunbroker are not like live auctions where what you bid is what you will pay. These auctions are you pay what the next closest person wants to pay + one bid increment.
>>41489238No you don't understand.I mean he bid exactly one cent over me, I was winning, but his bid was over one cent.So I entered a random number, was winning, and but the same guy entered that same random number.
>>41481650Don't worry, Mausers are vastly superior
Is the stock a deciding factor for you ? I'd rather have a nice stock than a beat to shit one obviously but is it a detrimental factor for accuracy and reliability of the rifle ? A lightly damaged stock shouldn't have much influence over the shots, right ?
>>41489248This doesn't make any sense. Speak clearly.
>>41489248>You could be dealing with a human who doesn't understand the autobid system and is manually biding the next highest increment above you after you bid.Or>You don't understand the autobid system and are misinterpreting what happens when someone has out bid you to start.My guess is that it is the latter. What has happened is that you have run into someone who has beat your bid to start. Let's say the it item in question is showing a price of $350 with a bid increment of $1. Say that he bid $1000 on the item but it will only show 350 since that is the reserve or starting price (I hate Gunbroker's reserve pricing system). Now you come along and want said item. You want to get it for $500. So you bid $500, but since he already bid 1000, the system says he out bid you at $501. You randomly enter 576.25 and all of a sudden it shows he bid 577.25. What has happened is that you have yet to surpass his bid. If you bid over his original bid of 1000, then you will see a bid of yours at $1001 and that is the price you will be held to should you win the auction.I see two options for you here:Bid what you would like to pay for the item. Then once out bid, bid what you would pay at most for the item.OrJust bid what you would be willing to pay at most for the item the first time.I lean for the second option when I try to buy from auction sites.
>>41481650I owned three nuggets wheb they were cheap. One would rip the rim off the case, and the other was so frustrating I literally threw it in a river one day and sold the third. Get an SMLE or mauser
>>41481979I found three swedish sight hoods on ebay for $5/per. I got one and it fit with no issues
>>41489470Also try to wait for the last day of the bid, sometimes people bid and forget about it. If you bid woth two weeks left, theres more time for people to upbid. Tho GB has the “15 minute” rule, to prevent sniping, so.... maybe?
>>41481935>buying an ancient rifle with an obsolete action for more than a modern semiauto or durr rifleI shiggy diggy
>>41489655Personally I don't wait, Gunbroker sends out tons of emails to remind you that you have won an auction or an auction is coming to a close so I am not afraid of forgetting.If someone outbids me, they out bid me. I bid what I am willing to pay and that would be it. While it does leave more time to be outbid, I have found that most of the time I am outbid, it is the last day of the auction anyway.
I bought my first nugget for 550 dollars. It came with 1,000 rounds of ammo, a scope / bubba mount, and a sling.How did I do?
>>41489781Well that's almost a good deal on the ammo alone. What nugget and what nugget food?
>>41489666>Missing the point of milsurp this hardISHYDDT
>>41489975>replying to bait
>>41490036>replying to (yous)
>>41481404I don't know if I should buy a Siamese Mauser or an 04/39 Vergueiro. Both are in fantastic condition but I just bought 2 other surp gats this month and can only afford one.
>tfw can't justify spending over 850 on a norwegian krag at this point with my wallet strapped for cash.it hurts bros. if you want to try at it: https://www.gunbroker.com/item/811165716
>>41483703>tfw you get 15 original Romanian stripper clips with ammo on them + 440 rounds of new Tula 54R with your '33 Izhevsk 91/30 all for $200.00
>>41483986>>41488359Not the guy you’re replying to but do you have to completely strip the rifle before you put it in mineral spirits or can you just do a field strip and dunk the whole thing (stock included) in a tub of it?
>>41490289DO NOT PUT YOUR STOCK IN MINERAL SPIRITS!
>>41490189The deal I got with mine was 38 Tula 91/30 with accessories a spam can of 54r and the 5 clips, because it's all he had, for $300.
>>41490135Good luck finding ammo for the Siamese.
>soimeone near me is selling a bubbad svt-40 for $1200>at minimum I'd have to get a new stock and fix some scope mount holes in the dust coverI was planning on trying to get this guy down to 600-800 otherwise it's not worth the fucking hassle. any thoughts?here's the gun for reference:http://www.armslist.com/posts/9945842/washington-antiques-for-sale--svt-40
>>41490351I already reload for 2 esoteric calibres (6.5x53.5r Daudeteau and 8x60r), what's a third?
>>41490368That poor rifle. Yeah, $800 tops
whats the going price for an sks in decent shape, ideally a Russian.Also ever see a M44 1952 production without a numbered bolt ? Doesn't seem like bubba filed it off - i've read that this happens sometimes as a repair or something.Any ideas?
>>41490148You're gonna have to pony up the cash if you want something rare.
>>41490483Non-Russian would be $400ish. Russian is $500+ generally.
>>41490135Verguiero. Those are in a easily found caliber. You don't have a lathe to make 8x52r brass.
>>41490488There's a few rarities that are cheap that fly under the radar because they were used by South/Central American countries.
>>41490574Norwegian Krags are not on that list.
Hey /msg/, I don't have any milsurp at all yet, as I'm typically very utilitarian about my gun purchases. But at my local cabella's, there an arisaka in remarkably good shape, looks to be early war chambered in 6.5 for $450. Is that something I really should to jump on, or should I save up and get an M1 garand which I've kinda wanted since ive gotten into guns. Anyone have any experiences with arisakas?Additionally how impossible/expensive is it to get 6.5x50?
>>414906306.5 Jap is around $2 a round. It's really fun to shoot, but I personally wouldn't recommend going for an Arisaka unless you're willing to reload for it.
>>41490630>Additionally how impossible/expensive is it to get 6.5x50?It's hard to find and expensive ($45+ a box) when you do, so handloading is basically required. It's a wonderful cartridge but if you're utilitarian surp probably isn't for you.
>>41490671I got my 6.5 from "mrnambu" $1.25/rd, along with the repro sling. I've been trying to contact him for more but no response.
>>41490630Save up an extra $325 and get a Garand
>>41490488like this ?https://www.gunbroker.com/item/813271857
>>41490798Where do you recommend is the best place to try to get a garand? I really don't want to go through CMP's bullshit to get one
>>41490656>>41490671Thanks anons. It will continue to tempt me.
>>41490840Well then you're SOL, faggotIt's retardedly easy and you get it shipped straight to your door so don't be a fucking dweeb and do it
>>41490812>>41490862>not sneaking off with incredible deals off GB late at night.Try harder.
This might be a stupid question, but I'm new to mil surp, so please bear with me. Where is a good place to get Mil/LE Cz 75s or 75 clones like the Jericho?
>>41490630$450 is about 150 too high for an ordinary Arisaka, but that's Cabela's for you. You should get whatever gun you want, not whatever gun the internet thinks is the best.>>41490671https://www.tacticalammunition.com/product/6-5x50-japanese-100gr-hp-20-ct-ta88-0006/>>41490890I forget which one it was, but one of my recent purchases ended in the middle of the night Best Coast (if you ignore California) time. I was the only person who bid late.>>41490900Armslist.
>>41490918Never heard of them. That's a fucking light bullet though. But regardless I stand corrected.
>>41491127They're a local manufacturer. I only know of them because they show up at the local gun shows. I have a box of their 6.5 Weeb, but I haven't shot it yet. They also make 7.7.
new buy: austrian longboi.steyr 95 with a double header eagle on the right side of the receivershiny bore and 100% blueing. blonde stock indicates bulgarian refurb tho.
>>41490856goddamn. that wood. i wonder if I requested it I could get wood like that on a service grade.
>>41491824Maybe. You'll probably get a CMP stock though.
>>41491824>>41491850what accuracy can one expect from a garand?thinking about getting one or an sks as a semi auto surp. but only if i can hit smth at 100.
>>41491974You'll get better accuracy out of an M1 than you will an SKS but it's not as noticeable at 100 yards. My m1 shoots about 1-3 moa my sks is about the same depending on ammo consistency.
>>41492003hmm. thx but that makes it even harder to choose.here in austria there is more 30-06 to choose from than 7,62x39, i guess no more than one or two non corrosive ones for the latter. but the sks will be cheaper, no clips and cheaper ammo. maybe both.i just want a semi surp with wood furniture, what else is there that isnt too complicated or delicate? swedes need ammo drowned in oil afai, but what about that french semi mas?
>>41492144keep in mind many modern 30-06 brands are not suitable for the garand. I find the sks to be much more useable and fun, but the garand has more history and with the right wood is absolutely beautiful.
>>41492248since dont reload... sks is it gonna be.just ckecked prices: italian presidential guard garand, very good shape: 2000 gay ass euro bills, sks 500-700ish.russkie with laminated stock maybe.na sdorowje.
>>41491824You won't. I have no idea how I got lucky enough to pull this.
Will I still need to fill out a 4473 if I'm buying a C&R gun (at a local pawnshop) and have a copy of my C&R license with me? Also, does my C&R license get me out of the stupid 3nday waiting period? (Florida)
>>41492842You shouldn't have to fill out a 4473 in that case. It is an FFL to FFL transfer. As for the second, I dunno. Now, whether or not the pawn shop will know any of this is a different question
I wonder if Sweaty Ben is gone. The e-mails from Classic today are from "Clint" and I haven't seen a video with Ben for quite some time.
Posting again because im still curious, anyone know why there is a W on this type 30 bayonet?
Does this count as surplus? Bought it earlier this week
>>41482077maybe to fix those cracks?
>>41492908Heart attack got him
>>41492922I had guessed that much, but any clues on which one? It looks absolutely nothing like other subcontractor marks I've seen
is it ever appropriate to re-finish a C&R rifle? so long as you don't change its overall look and feel too much.
what is yall's opinion on the cz 70? I've seen a lot of mixed reviews on it and I don't know what to think. I know 32 acp is kinda anemic but if nothing else my wife could always use a purse gun
>>41492977Ben OD'd on too many BBQ sammiches.
>>41493128It's only original once.
>>41493202so replacing a cracked stock or getting the steel refinished is a bad thing? not really intending on selling the guns i just want them to not be sporters
>>41493128>>41493230Stocks should be fixed if possible, not replaced. Keep the original if it's not splinters. Reblueing and refinishing should be done as a last resort to keep the gun from degrading further.
>>41481404Why am I like this2 days ago I bought a Helwan, today I buy this. 3rd fucking surp purchase this month.
>>41489304>>41489470When the auction ends I think I'll be able to explain myself a bit better.But I do know how autobidding works, but that's not what's happening here.
>>41493787I already spend too much on this rifle and I'm looking into others.
>>41493787That's a nice price you got there
>>41486662>>41487112What's a good price on a Hakim?
>>41493168Have its predecessor, the CZ-50If they fixed the soft steel, then its a pretty kino pistol
>>41494487Every time I see that bench I want to refinish the wood
>>41494684>refinishLeave that wood alone, bubba!
I have a couple Surps to dentify. It's from a friend who's slav relatives took them.
>>41494652I paid $450 but you'd expect to pay on average $500-$650
Found this in my pa’s attic. Looks old. Can anyone identify it?
Does anyone other than Buffalo Arms make 43 Spanish? I might win a lot soon with two rolling blocks, one of them is an Argentine in 43 Spanish.
>>41494842>>41494851That's a bubba'd MAB D
>>41494956>MAB DKick ass. I love /k.
>>41494956Does this indicate a french resistance pistol?
>>41490325So how do you get it out of the stock then?
>>41495116Blow dryer or black bag in a car on a hot day
>>41481957This gives me the big MAS
>>41494787Some BLO would really wake up the wood
>>41495663>>41494684The wood needs love, but sadly she'll be passed on to a new owner in a few months. Im leaving the bench behind when I move
How much should I spend on this?https://www.gunbroker.com/item/813661678
>>41495692'bout tree fiddy
So, Remington rolling blocks in 7mm. I've been watching a bit and price ranges look to be mostly $300 to $450, depending on condition, and im ready to buy. Is there any way to reliably tell the age on these? There's one on GB that the seller claims is an antique, but I dont want my snake to get shot
>>41494828>pack of reds in the front pocketBasedIt's a Romanian AKMS based on the grip
>>414957907mm Rolling Blocks are awesome, get one.
>>41495689Where are you moving to? Someplace you can shoot on your own property I hopeLeave the bench nicer for them
>>41494673yeah I know the 50 is better they are just so hard to come by nowadays the hunt continues I guess
>>41496413The 70 is better sempaiHave a very early CZ-70 and the slide metal is so soft its got galling on the underside from the hammer hitting it on the way back. I reckon its got about 300 more rounds before its unshootable
>>41496069Nope. Next 4 years will be apartment life. And maybe I'll touch it up before I go.
>>41481404help me...I found a romanian mosin m44 for 90 bucks but I also found a Stgw57 for 300 bucks.Which one should I buy ?
>>41496780The guy selling the m44 also has a makarov for 280 bucks
>>41496780Fucking both. That's credit card worthy
>>41496780>>41496791Buy them all!
>>41494828Looks like a Chinese underfolder.
>>41496799>>41496801I don't have enough money to buy them all right now. I already bought an AK two weeks ago
>>41496834You stupid bastard, rob a store and buy them!
>>41496845My skin is too light. The seller will not take me seriously and laugh at me.
>>41496440good to know how long did it last yah? what kind of ammo do you use? I heard that 7.65×17tends to be hotter the 32acp and can cause feeding issues. don't know if there's any truth to that tho
>>41492908maybe he is on vacation in thailandsweating is sweaty ass offblowing all the surp money on a truckload of hookersand listening to kansascarry on my wayward son
>>41492977nah. he forgot to turn his sweat swag off and is now covered in bitches.
>>41488369S&B 7.5 is gtg. Took a deer with one of the soft points out of my K-31.
are yugo mauser a good alternative to german ones ? doesn't seem to me that yugos would be inherently worse for their price seeing the insane markup on german ones
>>41498518Yugo captured are good. M48s are fine, but they're not quite the same as a real k98k
Buy lowSell highWaiting for the high part.
>>41498617i'm asking because yugo are going for 550 whereas K98k are going for at least 700, more around 800-850. French surplus market is absurd.
Gotta shoot this soon.
>>41496834>>41496780ARE YOU A RETARD? That's what credit is for.
>>41498793>>41498811>he bought a Mitchell's AbortionHahahahahahaha
>>41498518for shooting they are even better because new barrels and constant arsenal refurb. but that lowers the collection value significantly. they are ok if you are not seeking a k98 with eagles.
>>41499120I couldn't help myself.
I have some serious fomo going on over a FN Isreali Mauser that sold for like $450 with a bayo and cleaning kit a week and a half ago and a late war German one that was converted that sold for $370 on Saturday. Fugg why did my laptops HD have to take a shit now?
Are the trench guns with the mount for the long bayonet all that cheap or common?
>>41499258No aaaand no.
>>41481573hey, I just found out that garands, despite having been used in war, are legal in Italy (where I live and where "military-grade" stuff (like 7.62 NATO, but not 308) is banned) so I thought of purchasing one, but I really enjoy long range shooting, so I wanted to know how hard it is to mount scopes on that thing, if it's possible at all.
>>41499242What the fuck is that bubba'd mess of a mauser? Does the bayonet lug even work with it placed so far back?
>>41498518M48's are good rifles, not as collectible as other Mausers, but most are in good or very good condition due to constant upkeep by the Yugoslavs, and they are very nice shooting rifles.>>41498617Yugo Capture K98's are excellent shooters, mine has the smoothest bolt out of any of my cock on open Mausers except for maybe my 1917 Spandau G98.
>>41481404Gimme the rundown on buying a carcano
>>41499495There are a bajillion very different models
>>41499495Don't buy a bubba'd one. Carcanos used a sort of progressive rifling where the twist rate increases through the length of the barrel. This means that if Bubba chops the barrel to make it look like MUH DURR HUNTIN RIFLE, it also ruins the rifling. This is how you get the "Carcanos are horribly inaccurate" meme. It's a lot like how the "Mosin can't hit the broad side of a barn" meme comes from idiots sportorizing the stock when the Mosin specifically needs a really snug stock to be accurate.
>>41499698I'm looking at a calvary model, the only bubba I can see is an added limbsaver instead of the leather/metal buttplate
>>41499698>>41499724It has a crown and as far as I can tell hasn't been chopped, the front post is still on it
I'm a poorfag but I get paid soon. I have my eye on either a K31 with sling & cleaning kit for $800 or a package deal of a Swede m96 and a 96/38 for $1200. I'm torn and I could go for either or. What would you guys choose?
>>41499767Neither, those are shit prices
>>41499055I don't know if getting into debts for some guns is a good idea
>>41499779It's in canadian if that makes a difference
>>41499814>going into debtIf going into debt means being out a couple hundred that you can't immediately pay off within a month, then you shouldn't be binging guns in the first place.
>>414997672 guns is better than 1 gun.
>>41498711That’s about what they’re going for in the US market as well my frog friend.I’ve owned both and while I like my K98 more, the M48 was a good shooter and got me into bold surp.
>>41499319Don’t mount a scope on one.Just....don’t.
>>41481404Normally I don't think much of the nugget, but that is a damn sexy one.
>Want to get a MAS-44>Ian does a video on themWelp, there goes that idea.>>41499319You can find M1Cs and M1Ds that have scope mounts already available or installed.
>>41500380>he didn't buy a 44, a 49, and a 49/56 far in advance before anyone knew about French gunsI remember buying mine when they were stupid cheap thanks to Fudds saying that 7.5 Frog was an awful cartridge.>go to LGS>there's a MAS 49 for $400>buy that shit immediately>fat fudd at the desk is talking about how the ammo is impossible to find>"that's fine dude I reload">he continues talking and claiming that it jams constantly>"ok dude that's nice">go home>shoot gun>never had a jam or issueI also got a 49/56 in .308 that miraculously works. It took me something like 6 test runs to get one that worked though. The others all jammed up and had a shitton of issues.
>>41498636A very good contribution.
>>41500434>7.5mm French>impossible to findFucking boomers, day of the pillow when?
>>41500519You have to understand that boomers don't really use the internet much. They can go on Gunbroker or Armslist with I KNOW WHAT I GOT well enough, but they have zero skills at doing research or finding things. This is why fuddlore still exists despite there being internet. They also seem to have no idea that ammoseek exists, and they think that paying $1 a round for .308 at their local store is the "going price".
>>41500380Thank god i jumped on the one I just bought. And tomorrow/Monday he's gonna hump the 49.
Commence new gat posting.
>>41500728Only because you asked nicely
>>41500728>>41500734>>41500744How many did you paid for it ?
>>41500853Nice 91/28. How much did you pay?
>>41500899It was $700 for the three guns I just posted so somewhere under $250?
>>41500911That's pretty good. The arisaka has been refinished, but nice prices
>>41500853>>41500964Even more pasta
>>41500728>Commence new gat posting.Done.>>41500734>>41500744I should buy one of those before they get any more expensive.
>>41500728I basically bought this a month ago.
>>41500842$325 of Fuddbroker.
>>41501521>$325That's robbery. Here G96/11 costs like 100
>Krag is in the mail and should be here by TuesdayCan't fuckin wait boys
New FN Mauser, I need 8mm.
>>41501741Fuck me. How? I hate my country
>>41502506Nice, you'll love it. What country?
>>41505016>>41481935It's this one
>>41495530yo, that's no Yugo
>>41505840Gimme gimme gimme gimme.
>>41505840Nice poster. I think old books are popular here too
Any Coloradoanons ever go to the Colorago Gun Collectors Association show? Its on this weekend, debating going.
>>41505815You have the big retard
>>41506224now THAT'S a yugothe other one tho?>>41495530>no top handguard>cutout in the stock under the bolt end>bolt takedown disc that there's a k98
Should this be fine to shoot in a 7.62 Spanish Mauser? Someone got me a gift card for Sportsman's Warehouse and this is the only 7.62x51 they have in stock. I've shot surplus 147 grain South Korean out of it before with no issue but I'm big dumb and don't know if grain is important for pressure or not.
>>41506872It's an m98/48 aka a Yugo rework
>>41481404dat Mosin yours? wanna sell it?
>>41507486It's mine and no thanks
Is $600 a fair price for a Radom?
Anyone seen this nagant sling before?91/30 non referb with finish capture mark
>>41506872What's it like knowing enough that you think you're an authority, but only enough to make yourself look like a retard?
>>41508053No, it is well below a fair price.
>>41508067>>41508756Alright. I'll probably go in on Monday then. It's been sitting a while so I doubt it'll be gone. They've never really been on my radar, but my financials have taken a turn from good to very good, so fuck it.
Any idea on fixing my m1 carbines wobble in the stock? I think the recoil plate is the wrong size. So far I have just been shimming the receiver tang with aluminum tape
>>41481404Found a Russian sks for 450 with no bayonet at a local shop. It’s nice.
>>41508879See if anything is loose first. I wouldn’t tape all over the stock to fix wobble
Is "shooting out" a barrel on a milsurp ever a realistic concern? The old fudds at my local gun shop claim if you keep shooting a gun while the barrel is warm/hot it'll wear out really fast. I've owned milsurp for a number of years, and I haven't observed any sort of rifling wear in my guns.
No guns fag here. Why is military surplus shit so expensive? Is it just the demand for military shit outweighs the supply?
>>41508934There's a bunch of factors to it:>No more supply since they're not made anymore>Bubba keeps killing them via chopping the wood/metal so the supply drops even further>Demand is always present from a combination of historical collectors and people who want something that isn't a boring ass black plastic gun>Memes play a major role in driving the prices up (e.g. all the Mosin memes made it $400+ now, Saving Private Ryan shot Garands through the roof, etc)>Most people who buy milsurp refuse to let it go and only will let it go once they die
Picked up my first military surplus last week.1952 Circle 11 M44. Has a force matched floorplate and unnumbered bolt.Paid 300 for it, 340 with shipping and FFL crap. How did I do?
>>41508918For the vast, vast majority of shooters no. You're gonna out what, 200 rounds through it in a single session at most (usually much less)? You're not gonna get significant barrel wear until 6000 rounds or more. Now if you happen to have a machine gun, that's another story but I doubt that's what you were asking in the first place.
>>41508918Unless the round is retard fast or you're shooting a semi auto non stop, then no, your barrel will be fine. Tell those boomers to neck themselves
>>41506874Bumping this question. I'm pretty sure the "NATO Spanish Mausers were built for CETME which is a weak pressure" thing is a load of fuddlore but I figured it wouldn't hurt to ask the boys at /msg/.
>>41481404Other than the fact that it's an exceptionally clean Spanish Civil War-issue 91/30, what the hell is going on with this auction?https://www.proxibid.com/Firearms-Military-Artifacts/Firearms/FIREARM-GUN-MOSIN-NAGANT-91-30-r1586/lotInformation/47874377#topoflotWithin a week, I expect some boomer on Gunboards to be showing it off.
1/1Went to the Fort Wayne gun show today. There were a number of surp dealers this time. Went there for surp rifles, but my Hong Kong action film autism got in the way. Picked up a police surp, 1960 Colt Police Positive Special, Royal Hong Kong Police marked.
>>41510068Nice trips. >RHKPFucking cool.
>>41509653NATO spec 308 is fine.
>>415100682/2To finish out my self imposed budget I also got a Finnish captured, non referb, M91/30. It was a debate between a few rifles, but this one won since <$300 Mosins are at worse worth flipping if you don't end up liking it.Talking to one of the surp dealers he was giving the impression that the surp dealers in the area were thinking of coordinating with each other. They are thinking of making at least one of the Ft Wayne Coliseum gun shows a thing they all show up to. It's based on if that date builds a rep of lots of surp it would attract surp collectors and raise the chances of sales. I'm keeping a ear out, I have a memory that May last year had a good amount of surp dealers too.
>>41508918You yourself will not shoot out a barrel to the point of wearing it out on a milsurp. Now with that said, you can find guns that have been shot out. I've come across a couple 1903 springfields with no visible rifling before. And of course some nuggets that had shot alot of corrosive ammo that had no rifling as well.
French, Finned Mosin for 1120 at the Chehalis show in WA.
>>41510068>>41510271Nice! If what you say about the 'surp dealers ends up happening, I might actually venture up to Fort Wayne in that case.
>tfw got my .30 Luger reloading down to about 7cprNow all I have to do is deal with looking like an idiot chasing my cases all over the range.
>>41509060I paid $350 for mine after taxes background check and the like so I'd say you did breddy gud
>>41506872It's a Yugoslav capture you ninny.
>>41508503No but your nugget is beautiful
I want a pretty nugget :(
>>41511701Get one then you silly billy
>>41511701No you don't.
>>41511701Then get one anon, they are worth it.
>get home from work after dealing with methhead>Artilleria bayonet and repro Type 46 cleaning rod waiting for meGood day today.
>>41511895I need to get a photo with all my mauser crests together
>>41511901Same. Also a pic with all the crests of every rifle type.
I found a MK2 Enfield in my local pawnshop in great condition, except the stock which is a sporterized nightmare. Any good places to get an original style stock?
Well, I got a rolling block. There's something bittersweet about winning on your last bid. >>41512965No.4 Mk2? Liberty tree collectors gets some sets in sometimes
>>41481957Oh shit bud that's a real fine rifle.
>>41513209Hey I was looking at that one!Nice job!
>>41482059Probably because it was easier to work with than steel. Same reason really early Russian Maxim wheeled mounts were made of brass.
>>41509653Its a fucking small ring mauser, It can take double that pressure no problem.
>>41513151Yea a no. 4 I'll check them thanks. And congrats in winning the rolling block.
>>41513357Just making sure. I shot a .308 round out of it once and the bolt got stuck so I'm a bit paranoid.
Got a little somethin' somethin' for the Wobbly boi
>>41495116Blowdryer and paper towels. There will still be some in the stock that will come out once you fire some rounds through the rifle. Bring paper towels to the range
>>41513715>>41513914>using that overpriced hipster crapI've shot Winchester white box through mine with no signs of harm. Stop falling for ridiculous fuddlore. This is like the idiots who think trapdoors need some magical custom 45-70 load.
>>41514461This look like Fuddlore to you sempai?
>>41514545That looks like someone running ludicrously hot hanloads through an old gun.
>>41514681Compared to .455 Webley, .45 ACP is a ludicrously hot handload you dingus.
>>41481404Saw there was a garage sale down my road with a big sign that said "GUNS". Went to it - the guy is basically every fudd caricature you can imagine come to life. He had his FFL on display and a stack of 4473s to fill out at a table, and a mixture of mostly new rifles and handguns. Asked if he had any surplus and he said this:>"Whenever I get 'em, I sell it cheap 'cause I can't guarantee 'em and won't look halfway across the world for parts to fix them with. SKSes? Most guys sell 'em at gunshows for $300.00- $500.00 depending on where they're from. I sell 'em all for $250.00. Them Jap rifles? I sell them for sixty bucks each."So I gave him my card and told him to call me next time he gets 'surp on trade, which is where he says he finds the most of it. I'll probably swing by again soon. Hope some deals come my way.
>>41514739And yet it can still handle standard 45acp just fine, much like a Trapdoor can handle standard smokeless 45-70 just fine. The only time a Trapdoor has issues is with that really hot lever action stuff from Hornady.
>>41514461Any gunsmith worth a damn that works on Webleys says to shoot downloaded .45 ACP out of shaved Webleys. Is nearly every professional with years of experience in historical firearms wrong?
>>41514786That's like asking a lawyer what to do for a legal issue. Obviously they'll go with the super safe answer to cover their asses. I hate to break it to you, but guns don't randomly explode from using already underpowered factory ammo.
>>41514858>imma shoot nothing but proof loads through my 100-year-old gun>what could go wrong?
I'm going to buy my 1st rifle tomorrow. 1903 A3.
