That's quite an armory. What's up with the cutout beneath the bolt handle on the stock of the Vz.24? I've never seen that.

It's for a bent bolt like on a K98. The thing is a mix-master but the stock matches the receiver and the floor plate. My guess is it saw hard service somewhere and the old bolt was bad so it got replaced with what was at hand. You can see where the bolt handle used to rest.

That's really an amazing collection, I really like the depth AND the diversity you have. I also must comment on that Garand, the wood looks like someone's custom Mauser hunting rifle, what a great example. That Steyr Gewehr 88 looks like money wood, too, as does that Steyr 95 - do you pick and choose to get rifles like that? Well done!

That Colt Trooper is too much, what a great ending.

How long have you been collecting?

Regards,

You can see from the diversity that I went through phases. Mosins then Mosin carbines. One K98 turned into 10 from different countries. My first $69 Turk now has 5 companions. It all started simply enough my dad gave me my first 2 after I joined the Army in 1986. They were the Colt Trooper and No5 Jungle Carbine. I bought and sold a few more after that though they were mostly non-military stuff.

One day in 2006 I got a Shotgun News and saw how cheap surplus rifles were so I ordered one of 91/30s, the Yugo 59/66 and the Maltby No4. I had them sent to a local gun shop, paid the transfer fees and took them home. When I got to reading that Shotgun News again I saw a whole bunch more guns I wanted but those fees sucked. Then a buddy told me about the C&R. I applied and after it arrived it's all kind of a blur.

I filled up a 15 gun cabinet, then another, then a closet and now I'm filling up a room. I started out just getting one example of what ever was on the market usually from Shotgun News, fliers in the mail or the Internet. Then I started looking for nicer or rarer ones by prowling gun shows, auction sites and online forums. Now I only buy what appeals to me (it's got to have character and a nice stock really helps) of course these come from the forums, gun shows and shops.

Like any good collector I am always on the hunt for a good project. I still occasionally buy cheap beaters from J&G or an IMA rust buckets and of course Century's U-fix'ems. Some of those will never be worth the time and money I've got into them. One of my 1908's and the 1949 GRI NoIII MK1* are just a couple. That really doesn’t matter though there are only 3 I'd be willing to part with and that would only be in trade for another one.
