Thai Carbine T91

I had posted these photos previously on the old SRF form These carbines were created from Type 38 rifles after the end of WW2 from rifles supplied to Thailand from Imperial Japan. Basically the rifles were shortened to carbine length at the Thai Arsenal. The Thais had a love affair with the M1 Cabin...

Re: Hungarian 91/30

Hi Paswissshooter1

I'm pleased with it.
Its all matching and the condition of the bore and stock lets me think it was never issued.

Hungarian 91/30

I had this rifle up on the SRF previously but thought I will put it back up. After the war many Soviet Bloc Satilite States started producing their own copies of the Nagants. Hungary was no different, manufacturing 91/30 from 1950-54 prior to commencing production of the M44. Hungarian Nagants can b...

Re: Carcano Folding Bayonet

Not often you find a bayonet dearer than the rifle but this is one of them.

Your Bayo looks to be in great condition.
Does yours have some remaining "plum" finish on it?

M904/39 Portuguese Mauser

I had this posted in the "old' forum but thought I drag it out as nothing has been posted current on this unusual "mauser" This rifle is unusual as it was manufactured at DWM in Germany but had a split bridge receiver and bolt design like the Mannlichers but retained the Mauser Stripper clip and sta...
