Re: We've got trouble right here in River City

Yes Milsurps have gotten a bit more expensive but that just makes the hunt more of a challenge, and even more rewarding.

Re: Repro 42 VKT M39 SOV

Finally got to get my SOV out to the range, and I am quite pleased so far.

1st 5 rounds @ 100 yds with some cheap Russian "Hunting Ammo"

Re: We've got trouble right here in River City

Would like to post more but the past 2 years, 1st with my Dad getting sick and passing away, then with my mom and her triple bypass this spring, and a very hot summer this year I have had a heck of a time going on line and even going to gun shows ( only 1 this year to date). But with summer winding ...

Repro 42 VKT M39 SOV

Some firearms are just unattainable to most collectors no matter how much you may wish otherwise, and this is one of them. I have always liked the Finnish M39 SOV's and M39/43's, but with less than 200 of the SOV's and 500 of the M43's having ever been produced the odds of ever acquiring one was zip...

Original matching [SA] 91/30

Picked this one up on line last week and Big Brown just dropped it off thursday. It's a All original Finn Captured 36 Tula 91/30. This rifle is just dripping with history and will go great with my other 1936 Mosins.

Japanese Type 97 Sniper rifle

Kind of stumbled into this one but I am glad I did, all numbers matching and original except for the butt plate and the reproduction Monopod.
Now to find a nice Kokura 2.5x scope for it

Not really surprised about the driver's license, one of the online ammo sellers won't sell to anyone without a copy of your driver's license, don't remember which one.

They want a copy of my drivers license and a copy of a utility bill besides the credit card so they can collect their fees.

Thanks everyone, it has been fun shifting the focus of my collection away from mostly Mosin's to sniper rifles. Very nice MT, what era are we looking at here?

That's remarkable. I can't remember what they were back in the day. Since the MAS 36 I got was $59.87 it couldn't have been much more than twice that for the automatic rifle.

Re: Adding some French flavor to the collection

The rifle was a bargain @ $585.00 shipped, with them normally going for $800.00/$1000.00. The scoped rifle was $1400.00, and is in the low end of the range , some fetch up to $2000.00 with all the toys.
