    ...blood still on it? If I ever get one, I want some WWII era German blood on it for added character.

    :rofl:

    I had an RC K98 that had some odd pitting near the muzzle. Either improper storage or blood or some combination thereof.

    Some people on surplusrifle have posted pics of stocks with bullet holes (one or two with bullets!!) and blood damage on barrels and recievers.

    It rusts in splotches and patches if left for a while. Some poor Finn ate a 7.62 x 54r or Tokarev round in the Continuation war and left this for the new owner 60 years later.

    I know someone who got a RC K98 from I/O that had what maybe alot of blood pitting on it, someone on one of the other forums i frequent posted pics of a mosin with a bullet hole in the stock a while back. Some of the AK mag's I got from the SG mag deal looked like they may of had blood pitting on them too.

    I bet you'd have better luck finding blood residue on a bayonet or something.

    Bayonets were rarely used for their intended purpose. On the other hand, do the math on German and Russian casualties for WWII alone and figure a lot of them bled out on their firearms :sad2:

    edit: I just did -a little over 16 million military deaths for Germany and Russia as a result of WWII.

    I got a nazi luger with suspicious rusting behind the grips, seems likely somebody dies around or by that gun before it got into my hands.

    my 1910 dated M1905 16in Bayonet was surely used, in its intended purpose. and you can read many, many first hand accounts of close combat on the eastern front during ww2, but I guess the chance that someone blead out on their rifle is decent. Now I have something to ask Opa about at Christmas.

    I don't remember the nonfiction book or history channel/military channel show, but one GI was in his foxhole during WWII in the Pacific Theater and he had a japanese soldier attempt to jump into his foxhole and the japanese soldier ended up shish kabobing himself on the GIs rifle with the bayonet attached.

    maybe it was flags of our fathers?

    A bayonet is a shitty and unwieldy weapon and if I remember my statistics right you're more likely to get clubbed by a rifle than stabbed by a bayonet. Sticking someone in close combat also leaves you dangerously exposed as you're extended, and stuck, in someone's gut or body for a number of seconds as you struggle to break the vaccum of the blade and pull it back out.

    Good times :o
