I like taking various old military surplus weapons to the range and just shooting them for the raw joy and experience of it. However, after shooting the CMP Eastern Games and seeing so many different types of old rifles being shot, I started to wonder how the different types would compare. So last weekend, I picked 3 rifles to start my completely unscientific and unreliable self test. It is my intent to shoot a group from a bunch of types over the next few weeks to see how they perform and measure up to each other. Obviously, the interpretation of the results will be completely subjective due to differences in weapon age, weapon condition, weapon sights, ammo quality, range conditions and my own human limitations. To the extent that the results may be interesting to anybody else, I will post them here. Please feel free to post groups from your favorite milsurp rifles, along with photos, etc. It is not my intent for this to be any type of competition, just a practical look at the real world amateur performance and characteristics of various antique military service rifles.
