New to Surplus Rifles

Post by Buickgsman »

Hello all, I'm new to the forum and glad to have found the SRF. Looks like a lot of great info here. I typically spend my time in the ColtForum.com, or on 1911forum.com. But I was given a few rifles and would like to know more about what I have. I'm looking forward to learning a bit about my new aquisitions.

Welcome to the forum.

There are many knowledgeable people here, unfortunately I'm not one of them :doh:

Now you have to show some photos of your prized rifles. There is so much rifle knowledge
here that it can be scary at times. Welcome.

Welcome to SRF from Arizona!! Show us some pics "as is" when you get a chance. That way you can get some advice on what to do, or NOT to do, that will help preserve the item's value.
