I got to handle a nice Ross rifle many years back. Your Jungle Carbine is in great shape OTD.

I am still hoping someone pops in with a nice old Lee Metford. As a younger man I had such a liking to those old long rifles. I never knew they are kind of rare birds.

45 Cal, look close at his '03. Is that not one of the new rifles on the market? I never saw a '03 with metal finished like this. I also am not sure about the milled angels on the receiver?

not new, just perfectly refinished - my dad had this habit of spending a 1000 hours using 3m paper and a piece of glass (so as not to round any edges), and removing old bluing and dings - up to crocus cloth, then having it re-blued.

Stocks (the Swedish mauser and 03, in particular) had the finish removed, dings steamed out, and then ~100 coats of boiled linseed oil hand applied, rubbed out, and 0000 steel wooled between coats.


I've got a similar dad restored Hakim...

I just got this 2 days ago. It's not only my first mil-surp, but it's my first long gun. A Swiss K31 from AIM.

K31's are great guns. Had one for a while but just didn't shoot it and passed it on to the next owner.

Very unique action and but like the proverbial Swiss watch.

The butt on yours looks pretty nice.

K31's are sweet rifles, I love mine.

You check under the buttplate yet?

Thanks. After hearing about the typical "beaver chew," I wasn't sure what to expect. I'm happy with the over-all condition.

I checked that as soon as it came out of the box. Troop Tag was still there! Really interesting to have a little piece of the history with it.

I'm kind of afraid I may have gotten bit by the mil-surp bug now! This all started because I thought it would be neat to have a K31 with the receiver and barrel made by SIG, and then try to find a Mauser 98 that was made by J.P. Sauer. I'll stop buying these rifles after that, right? Wink

Not likely.

Then you'll feel the need to add a Finnish M24 Mosin-Nagant with a SIG barrel:




And then a Sauer 38H:



And then...

Not greasy as I cleaned them up before putting them on the flag...a CMP 1955 H&R M1 Garand, and a Colt M1911 from 1918

Nice photo, mtltc.

Here's my latest acquisition, which is the cousin to your M1. Mine's also a 1955 HRA M1 Garand. It came wearing a nicely figured birch stock.



I was about to send off for a HRA Service Grade from the CMP, but I found this one for sale. (It's a Service Grade that was was purchased last fall from the CMP.) So I got to skip the wait, and got a gorgeous stock to boot.

I'm going to give it a Tung Oil rub this weekend, which should make the tiger stripes pop even more.

Beautiful rifle, Rogue. And there's just something about firing an M1 - "it don't mean a thing, if it ain't got that PING!"

The one thing about being a gun owner in Canada, is if you like Russian surplus stuff, it's painfully cheap.
This is a snap shot I took from a local dealer's website...

This shop is 70 miles from me, AND has Russian TT-33's WITHOUT the added safety for $169:

Might as well be 7,000 miles away.
