    A recent purchase, another 6.5x55 swede mauser, sporterized by an unknown individual, relatively well done. The bore is a little darker than I'd like. I took it out and once I figured out POI I put 3 rounds of S&B 6.5 into a 4 inch circle at 100 yards last night with the original sights from a kneeling position, was short on time and ammo so I didn't get to do any more but it seems like it will shoot. I have been wanting a Swede mauser I don't care about dinging up or getting wet in the woods and this one seems to fit the bill. 20190823_110804.jpg 20190823_110742.jpg 20190823_110754.jpg

    Great rifle great calibre !!! I have one in the back of the safe (still in issue guise) that I suspect was never fired (storage and transport dings and bangs etc). I fished it out of a crate of them a company I worked for in the 80s imported. Many of the guys in my deer hunting circle have changed over to 6.5x55 for good reason !!

    Yeah, my all original m96 definitely isn't that nice but it sure shoots nice! That is why I got this one, once I get to shoot it off a rest and see if it's worth scoping I might add some glass, not sure yet... I'm hoping long term to settle in Maine or another northern US state, I'd love to shoot a moose with the original m96...

    That Colt looks awesome!
    If the own/carry permit was easier to get here, I would definitely have one. I carry a plastic gun, but love full metal guns for their weight in the hand, but surely not on the waist :D Since it is not very easy to get the permit, my second try will most probably be for a .357 revolver.

    Not here yet (will be a couple of months due to distance and logistics) but looks like I am to be the owner of a 1980s (maybe even 70s) vintage Marlin 1895 in 45/70. I have not seen/held the rifle since I was in high school and it belongs to a friend from those times. He has decided that he no longer hunts/shoots and offered his six firearms up to myself and his other close friend (who is my best mate) of them only the 45/70 was of interest and my mate will take on the other 5 and keep three (one for his daughter, one will transfer to his son and one for him) and manage the sale of the remaining two and give the $s back to our friend (he doesn't want the $s but is going to get them anyway). They have been stored at a dealer for a bit who is wanting storage and transfer fees so we are getting them for those costs alone.

    A new project toy it seems :D

    Chop it down to a short brush gun. Itll make a very neat fireball.

    Any "excuse" I come up for owning it would simply be a smoke screen.... it's a combination of my Inner Teenager wanting a new toy and not wanting to see a piece of my past vanish off into the ether !

    My Step-dad passed away in January and he left these for me, I was just able to pick them up this past week.
    Benelli M1 121, imported by HK I think in the mid-80's. M1A from Springfield, I think dated to the late 70's and a Colt Sp1, dated to, wait for it...1966!
    I'm going to spend some time cleaning them this week and hope to be able to shoot them soon.

    @Rich275 sorry for your loss. The 121 speaks to me. Nice collection.

    I like this one. I see it's a Target, but which MK Ruger is that? IE, Mk 1, 2, etc.

    The Buffalo gun came about after a phone conversation with my youngest grandson to date, 8 years old and 100 MPH. He was telling me about a school field trip they took to see some Buffalo, he stated "You can't shoot a Buffalo can you Grandpa" so I explained there are places you can hunt a buffalo. Next he asks "Can you build me a gun to shoot buffalo?" Done deal, had to happen, has to happen!
    The Wilson Combat 14.7 inch 338 Federal fluted barrel is the heart and start of the build, pin and welded a modified SLR two chamber brake to get 16.1 inch overall length. It has Wilson's intermediate gas system, 13 3/16 inch gas tube, .073ish in. gas port in a .750 journal with an SLR non adjustable titanium gas block, I doubt the little weight savings is really noticeable but it was on sale for about the same price as a Geissele so I felt justified spending on fancy metal. Used Aero M5 receivers and a Wilson Combat 12 inch TRIM rail, not the best fitting Aero receivers I have gotten but perfectly capable of the job.
