Where are you and what do you collect?

I think my very first post was me spilling the beans on some of my collection, mostly WW2-end of cold war era stuff. Not just firearms either.

But I started to think that with this being a slightly older crowd, you guys have all the cool toys, As of right now I'm 29 and have a decent collection, in fact I am in the middle of redoing my M1 garand.

I have an extensive collection of WWII rifles. I think I have all infantry rifles except the M1 carbine.

I just sold my carbine, it was a plainfield, going to save up and get a real one once the CMP gets more in, but you didn't hear that from me.

My next one will be a SVT-38 or 40, or a Japanese arisika.

My dad still has an old Marlin 25N. It's in excellent shape.
That's it for us, however.

Let me know we'll do that.

I have both Arisika's the type 38 and the type 99 both with mums intact. The type 99 is first year production with chrome lined bore, mono pod, anti aircraft sights and dust cover all number matching except the dust cover. The type 38 was retired to training it has the Japanese writing branded on the side designating the school where it was used.

Is is WWII era? I had a friend with a Rock-Ola M1 that I tried to get him to part with it but he wouldn't. The rock-Ola is the M1 for collectors as the production was low and was made by a Jukebox maker.

Yep. It's from the 40's. It's original, other than the shorter barrell. My great grampa stuck it in the mud and blew the end of the barrell up and had to have it cut.

That's to bad but correct barrels are fairly plentiful so it can be replaced.

The CMP stores can do barrel swaps, but any qualified smith can do it as well, I went and did a course for Basic smith work, trigger jobs, problem solving, just the usually stuff.

Hey guys, American gun laws confuse me. I came across a couple of these recently. In the states that allow you to carry, would something like this ever be legal? I found a couple for modern 9mm but this one looked the coolest.

In certain states that is perfectly legal , as long as the weapon is under your direct control , IE: within your reach . In the Communist state I live in :D , you can only carry concealed , as not to upset the Liberals ... But in the Free States , such as my Neighbor NH , you can carry your gun right on your hip in plain sight . thumb up
