Re: No4 MK2's...consecutive serial numbers.

Great looking rifles , just amazing to find consecutive numbers in such condition.

Re: MAS 49

I recently fired my 49/56 for the first time using the 7.5 prvi ammo in an indoor range. The brass was tossed forward hitting the petition but was not nearly as vigorous as yours. My guess is it would have landed 8 feet away . My first time shooting a french rifle and was pleased , I had to clear on...

Re: Finnish M/19 Puukkopistins

Thanks for sharing, Wow this forum has so much interesting stuff. I have a nice US collection but can not make heads or tails of these knives. If we were at a garage sale together and these knives were on the table , you would be buying them while I am looking through a box of sockets .

Re: Not a Universal ????

It seems many of your purchases are from pawn shops and thats pretty cool. I stopped checking pawn shops around here a long time ago. There just never seems to be anything or its marked up to new prices. The flea markets were good to me but that was many years ago.
Nice pick up , congrats .
