here is what i have in WW II german stuff.

i really enjoy shooting these

1 of these is in 7.62, it was in down and dirty shape when i got it, but for what it was, it is still enjoyable to shot.

also i find the 8mm has more recoil then the 7.62

JP Sauer & Son Manufacture, love your work, converted by the Israelis to 7.62 or maybe the Czechs.
Like to see the other markings on the receiver.
Thanks for the pics

Nice, I do love how the izzys marked up those converted rifles... and we all love the availability of 7.62x51..

No such thing as a terrible picture of a gun.. Just ones you have to look at harder... :)

Have you ever seen those Federal Ordnance 98/85 American Eagles . Federal Ordnance converted some beat up Spanish mausers and fixed them up to 7.62x51.. A lot of people look down on those rifles, But they did put on a nice American Eagle with Arrows and branch crest

They are not as loved as some rifles.. but a nice crest none the less..

They sold in the 1980s, They were in the $200 range.. And there are a fair number of variations because of the different rifles they chopped shopped.. Now today I think you can buy them in the 300 range.. Its a great shooter and in 7.62x51 to boot..

Yeah, I have a National Ordnance (or is it Federal?) 03A3. Beautiful condition. As it should as it was made after the war from parts... Biggest regret is buying it (didn’t know better) and not buying a Uzi I found in Utah!

Why regret buying it.. Just regret nut getting the UZI.... By the way what kind of Uzi was it..???

I regret it because it’s a parts gun, not Springfield. Yes, it is in great condition...but. The uzi? That was in around ‘95/98. Not eligible as my home state wasn’t bordering Utah, but two states over. Crazy, huh? Don’t think it had the (ugly) long barrel or folding stock.

i have a question about my CE 44...

i got this rifle and the banner off the same guy in early 80s.
i cant find any import stamp. and looks like no pinged out dirty birds and all matching numbers.

all my other k98s have import stamps and non matching, would this CE44 be the keeper out of the lot?

took more pics, but wont load....thx friends

Yes non import marked matching would be most desirable. Import marked K98k are much less desirable than most other Milsurps.

Never seen that American Eagle Crest but now I want one. I'm a sucker for a nice crest.
