1924 SMLE MkV
Very nice...I'm a big fan of the Enfield rifles. Looking next for an original Enfield Carbine.
One of these or an LEC or both?
Looking for a No. 5 Jungle 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."
They may want to use it for the intro in the next Bond movie.

One on the left is original M1903A4 Springfield, on right is a M1941 Springfield Marine Sniper clone I built for the CMP vintage sniper matches at Butner
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.
1943 Inland M1 Carbine Paratrooper
At least he did not cut barrel down to 16" and put an AR stock
Do these count as milsurps?
Original M2 sheath.
Flat sheaths were US issue for F-S knife.
French m16 bolt action rifle with bayonet. 8mm lebel.
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.
I used to have a Vennie in a Fajen stock SN:1964 You have some sweet SAFNs.
My new toy from CMP:
There's an LMR barrel and lots of IHC parts on this one.
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.
we must avenge the arch duke. Onward to the great war, and victory against those Serb bastards!
Part of the Normandy collection.
Beretta Olympia 22LR - Have been trying to date it and what I came up with is between 1953-1957
Nice! I see you are a fellow Lee-Enfield enthusiast!
Some of my Brit stuff...
1947 #5 carbine
.303 Martini-Enfield converted by the Citadel arsenal in Egypt in the early 1900s
Consecutively numbered Webley mkIV .38/200 sold to New Scotland Yard in 1956. How they ended up in the local gunshop 35 years later is a mystery to me!
Nice! What are the details on it?
1934 Tula Hex with Boyd stock and Mosin Brake
WRA Garand service grade +1 +1
