    WW2 Milsurp Bolt Actions

    Came across these pictures I took a while back - thought I would re-share it.

    That's what I thought but I wasn't sure. Saw one at the local gun show a couple of weeks ago. It had a really nice mum on it.

    Very nice representation in great condition. Here's some of mine. It's a haphazard accumulation. I thought I'd share this with you guys. Like most of us here, I like shooting the old iron but it's gotten expensive as of late, and I really haven't been shooting much in quite a while. But I haven't stopped "acquiring". These are some of my mil-surp bolt guns, a few are unmolested (never arsenal refurbed or upgraded), as issued, parts assembled (mis-matched #s), or cloned (Santa FE). I like a good wall hanger and am not opposed to displaying them. This is a group shot for insurance documentation. Enjoy, PAX

    Echo1 - nice group of rifles you have, thanks for sharing!

    I had other samples/types, but wanted to stay with more short rifles/carbines in these photos, so did not include Russian 91/30, long Swedes Mausers, etc. I also did not
    want more than one rifle per country, so other models were left out. BTW the Steyr is a rifle not the short (kick ur butt) carbine (I also have) that many dealer were selling a while back.

    When I get my shop done (another rain delay) and get my firearms where I can easily get to them/or display them I hope to take better pictures to share.

    Great idea Buck, line them up for comparison.
    You have successful designs from the pre WW 1 period in their more modern form.
    This would have been good for world history class in 1957. You could taken them to the Junior High school and have a display on the football field.
    Coach and principle would have helped you lay them out
    We thought about it for a long time, "Endeavor to persevere." And when we had thought about it long enough, we declared war on the Union

    Thanks Buck. Those are the non-sport jobs, and then I've picked up a few more since the picture was taken. The Steyr is an M90 in original 8X50R. An undocumented bring back from WWI (fellas gramps'). I found it garage sailing. It was on a table in 2 pieces. At the time I hadn't heard of "duffle cut" rifles, but for 50 bucks, I said what the hey, I'll take it & the Coleman stove for 10. Picked up some ammo in trade a while back, and a 2nd butt sling swivel it was missing, also located a manual in German. PAX
