Re: Hello from Ontario Canada

Welcome to SRF. I'll look forward to seeing some of those wonderful German machines. :D

I just finished cleaning up a Mauser 1914 that I should have re-assembled in a day or two plus some pictures very soon.

@ 72 usmc - Sure, let's see a pic of your M.95

Re: Surplus to watch and avoid

While some of the newer pistols don't apply, most all of the rifles you've mentioned are C & R (FFL 03) eligible. If you get a C&R license you can avoid the (rip-off) transfer fees that most gun shops charge. At $30 for three years, even if you only use it once, you probably saved money. Over a life...

Re: Project finished

Looks good! I like the darker stock. When I got mine about nine years ago, I was missing a huge piece of the handguard near the muzzle. I had the handguard repaired using another piece of similar wood, plus he patched another bad spot on the side. Still haven't shot it yet though. I only have 80 ro...

Re: Surplus to watch and avoid

There are several recent batches of Beretta's that have been brought in - 1951's, 92FS, 80-series - if you have any interest in those, now is the time before they disappear. It's pretty much proven that if/when further shipments of anything do arrive, the prices will be higher. As 72 usmc has stated...

Re: Yugo M67 Sealed Crate Value

Well, if that's the case, make him an offer that you'll be happy with and leave it at that. It all just depends on how badly he needs the cash vs. waiting for another buyer willing to pay his price. A long time ago I adopted a philosophy towards folks who thought they should get top-dollar for whate...

Re: Yugo M67 Sealed Crate Value

As I'm sure you know, that round (like most surplus) is going for crazy high prices everywhere you look. And M67 on strippers is the cream of the crop. While I hope you can get it for less, I think you may need to go a little higher if you really want this ammo instead of new manufacture ammo. Best ...

Re: Wisconsin native checking in

... I think the Swiss rifles, K31 in particular, is a spectacular firearm for the money. Also milling around in the mosin family. Kind of open minded and researching as i find items I like or seem to be the right price. I think that sounds like a good plan. In todays milsurp market, you have to jum...

Re: Wisconsin native checking in

Glad you joined us. My interest was initially in the various Enfield models. Which specific milsurps are you most interested in?

Re: The 2020 "Make Surplus Rifles Great Again" Challenge

I will start with my first C&R acquired rifle - a No. 4 Mk I* Enfield made by Stevens-Savage. In early 2006 I acquired this for $183 from SOG. (very sad they shut down) This has the correct zinc-alloy buttplate. Besides being U.S. made, what I like about these rifles is the wonderful walnut stock th...

Excellent idea Jay. Fortunately, I recently completed taking phone pics of much of my collection so I'm all set. I really hope this helps re-energize the forum.
