    Very nice...I'm a big fan of the Enfield rifles. Looking next for an original Enfield Carbine.

    That reminds me of a moment during my rather brief military career. While on a training exercise we were supposed to stack arms and do the exercise without them. The command for stacking are was, IIRC, a two part command, "Stack Arms...Stack." The officer in charge could not remember the proper command and called out "Put your weapons in itty bitty piles...Put."

    1953 Russian SKS, gift from a friend of mine. He picked it up for $100 back in the early 90s when we were in college, and now I'm hanging on to it. Shoots great and has that really unique vintage rifle smell.... old grease and wood. I can understand the appeal of these old warhorses.

    Not exactly milsurp anymore but a Czech made DOU stamp k98k. Previous owner drilled and tapped for scope mounts right on one of the roll marks. :mad: 20180406_183825.jpg

    This was the first time to the range with a Springfield M-1 I had just received from CMP about 5 years ago. I cleaned and lubed it, loaded the first clip and fired for a function check. No surprise, it ran fine, had not begun to try to dial in the sights at this point. Although I was aiming at a rock that was about 12" and was all over it.

    It has CMP replacement walnut stock set (not Hackberry, luckily), an old Turkish dope card taped in the trigger group (it says roughly - Up: 12 Right: 4), a Springfield bolt and a milled Winchester trigger guard. Overall, I think CMP did pretty good on this one.

    Giving the thread a bump with some Mil-surp displays from military history events. Always cool seeing the other collections laid out.

    BSA 'Cadet' .310 - I shoot .32SW Long rounds in it with great accuracy.

    Ishapore 2A1 7.62mm; the draws in the forearm finally collapsed from being oil soaked after this was taken and I had to replace the forearm with a less appealing piece of wood.

    [​IMG]

    German/Turk 88/05/35 with the barrel in standard .323 bore. I still wouldn't shoot any modern military surplus in it as there is almost zero gas handling in the event of a ruptured case. Remington is pretty safe for factory ammo, being loaded with a .321 bullet and low pressure. I loaded 150 gr .323 SP at about 2400 FPS and cases only used 2x. Seemed to work ok for me.

    Wow, that line-up of K31s is beautiful...just got my first one recently to go with my Gustav 1916 and my 96/11. Haven't gotten it to the range yet unfortunately.

    Full disclosure: A fair amount of the firearms in my pics are no longer with me. I started a big sell off several years ago and divested a lot of C&R firearms.

    Not mine but discovered on municipal property of a city I worked for by one of my crews. It is a very rare WW1 German 105mm howitzer. I got it recovered and stabilized so it didn't deteriorate any further and put it in storage pending final disposition. It had an interesting history as to how it came to be dumped in weeds behind a park maintenance building!
