    Top to bottom: M91/30; M38; M44


    SKS Tula 1954


    M48BO


    The most beautiful rifle I own so far is a Persian Mauser M98/29 or simply BRNO as the Persians called it. They were made under contract by Czech for Persia. I was doing some research on this rifle and came across a line that said, "the lost art of rifle manufacturing". This rifle exemplifies that to me.

    Pics can't do it justice.

    I waited so long to get a PMR-30 at just the original list price that I don't even want one anymore.

    It's getting to the point that I need to tighten the ranks. I'm running out of room!

    All Tulas, from the bottom, in almost chronological order:

    '36 Ex-PE Sniper
    '31
    '33
    '36
    '37
    '39
    '39 Restored PEM Sniper ('39 scope with repro mount)
    '40
    '43 Restored PU Sniper (vintage scope and mount)

    And a '36 Tula built, 1895 Nagant revolver, for good measure.

    Love them Mosin's here are some of them, at present I have over 40 of them.







    Any problem can be solved with the proper application of high explosives, the trick is to not be around when they go off.

    Each and every gun in this thread are truly beautiful pieces. Lots of interesting history in these pictures. I especially enjoyed seeing all the excellent condition Mosins. Thumbs up!

    Re: Official Eastern Bloc C&R Photo Thread

    Degunked my M91/30 from AIM last night and took it to our Labor Day machine gun shoot today.

    I ordered 4 of them, 3 with hex receivers for other people, and one with a round receiver for myself. I was hoping for a war time production piece; I find something appealing about the extremely rough workmanship that you see on the late '41-'43 rifles, when the Germans were stomping on the Motherland and they were still turning these things out as fast as they could.

    We all sprung for the hand select, and I'm glad we did. I got exactly what I was hoping for.

    1943 production, all matching numbers (truly matching, not electro pencil force match), with an excellent + bore, no pitting, no frosting, looks pristine.

    All four of the rifles were well worth the money from AIM. I'm tempted to get another.

    It's minute of steel plate at 100 yards off hand using Bulgarian 50's surplus and Czech silver tip light ball from the 60's.

















    Templar Senior (my father) trying mine out. He got one of the hex receivered guns (1935 mfg.) but is "patiently" waiting for me to come over to degunk it so he can shoot it. Age and rank hath it's privileges...
