Re: Enfield no 1 Mk 5

Here is a better intact example, a collector's treasure: see link with tons of pictures that I also down loaded and printed out. One fine rifle. See wood Stampings shown on an intact wood stock, an intact Enfield wood finish. This was the one to buy, Liberty is way out of whack. Both rifles provide ...

Wz 48 polish trainer import ?

Does any one know or have information about the Mosin, Polish, .22 trainer WZ 48. I have one that has no import marks. I remember that AIM or SOG had these rifles about 8-10 years ago around $179-200 bucks. Mine has no import marks and came from an estate collection generally purchased between 1955-...

French Model Berthier 1907-15/34 find

I ran into an estate collection offered at a local show. Most firearms were purchased between 1950-1970 and a member passed on and the collection of goodies came out of the wood work.
