Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Hello everyone :)

Hello everyone. My names Austin. I used to have an account here ages ago but since then I've lost the password for the old account with no real desire to get it back. So figured, hey why not start fresh.

I look forward to browsing through all the topics as I love surplus things mostly because they always seem to have a bit of history and life to them. That and I love things that are rocking the vintage furniture XD.

I own a few guns myself but hope to expand to some new ones. Hopefully the next one being an Atlantic arms sa 58 or PTR 91 I would be interested in a c308 Sporter, only because my local gun shop has one in stock just gathering dust. Problem is it's a century arms XD name speaks for itself.


Looking forward to chatting with you all :)

Jax

Howdy Jaxxyfur. I am a recent returnee myself and under the same name though I still had to register as new. I think they had a problem where a lot of stuff got lost. When I checked, only 2 of a considerable number of posts including some stickies remained.

I too am fascinated by the history carried by many of these arms (and history did not come to a halt in 1945!).

Below is (from top) ; a shell or grenade fragment embedded in 24/47 stock forearm. Next is a divot from the barrel from the frag in the stock. Third down is a divot from the front sight ring.
Last two are a Yugoslav M59/66A1 sks, last is a close up of it's stock with graffiti and a bullet scar! If only these could talk! The fragment is most likely from a grenage, thrown or rifle launched- The Yugoslavs were fond of them, or it could be a light mortar fragment.
The Sks scar is lined at the bottom and fits the nose of a 7.62-39 bullet's tip perfectly!
Both of these weapons probably got their scars during the civil wars resulting from the break up of the fRY, (former Republic of Yugoslavia). The sks' ring patter forms a simple cross suggesting it may have been used by Croatian forces. Anyway, there's some stuff for your welcoming!
:D

Hey thanks for the warm welcome! glad ya made it back on too! yeah this site doesn't nearly have as many posts as before. half the time i wonder if its still active but i always get a reply too which i want to apologize for the late reply in getting back to you. X)

Thanks for the pics and the stories that is fascinating about the history your guns have! i used to have a yugo m24/47 Mauser myself. so i know what your talking about they've seen quite the history themselves. mine was a re-matched one. its original parts weren't the same numbers but it was re stamped and reissued in gosh im not quite sure coulda been 1957 if i remember right, for service :D ill get you a pic when i can find it. :D

Hi Austin. Welcome back.
Nothemug, welcome. You might be interested in a recent issue of Firearm News, they have a piece on battle damaged rifles.
And Weffol, hello and welcome. Nice looking place. Not likely to make it to Europe, but if you are ever near Orlando... :)
