    It's not a huge collection by any means. While I was home on leave I scored the Mosin at the local Big 5. I walked out the door with the rifle, bayonet and accessories for $79.95.

    As you can see it was made in the Tula factory in 1938. I think it's a pretty good version. It was hard to get ammo for it since I live in the middle of nowhere, but it was great fun to shoot and required little work to sight in and get good groupings.

    The Mauser I got from my Dad last year, he has had it since way before I was born. It's a nice firing piece as well, and has a lot of sentimental value more than anything else. First rifle I fired, and ever since then I wanted it.

    I also have a pretty old .22LR Ithaca (birthday present when I turned 10) that is single shot, as well as a Savage Arms Model 64F not pictured.

    My plans are for a Type 99 and a Lee-Enfield next.. :)

    Mauser. :bowdown:

    Such smooth actions. So much better than my Mosin-Nagants.

    Yeah, I really would have rather packed the Muser around than the Mosin also.

    What type of Mausers do you have?
