This is my C/R Wish List
Some are priorities, some I'd buy if the price was right, and some are pie in the sky.
Are there any major weapons that I am missing - I want to get a representation of the major/important rifles of the past century.
If I ever get an M28/30, I'll be happy. I've decided that I want to collect Mosin-Nagant rifles exclusively.
Your list lacks Finnish Mosins, Lugers, and cowbell.
Also, a GP35 (Browning High Power) would be excellent. The High Power served for both the Allies and the Axis. An FN made Mk. III would be good enough for me, though.
Got those bases covered already.
Nice list. Most of those are attainable rifles/handguns.
Got one already.
1915 DWM - matching serials, no import mark.
Very complete list....
I'd like the Luger...and a Broomhandle Mauser too....
I'm at about 75 C&R's right now, and the "wish list" only keeps getting bigger. And more expensive!
FN (Egypt) FN-49 8mm
FN (Argentina) FN-49 7.62x51
FN (Venezuela) FN-49 7mm
FN (Luxemborg) FN-49 30.06
Rasheed (Egypt) 7.62x39
SKS (Chinese) 7.62x39
SKS (East German) 7.62x39
Vz.52 (Czech) 7.62x45
Vz.52/57 (Czech) 7.62x39
Hakim (Egypt) 8mm
SVT-38 (Russia) 7.62x54R
SVT-40 (Russia) 7.62x54R
AG-42 Ljungman (Sweden) 6.5x55
MAS-49 (France) 7.5x54
M1 Garand - Winchester (US) 30.06
M1 Garand - International Harvester (US) 30.06
M1 Garand - Harrington & Richardson (US) 30.06
M1 Garand - Beretta (Italy) 30.06
That's just the affordable Semi-auto's I WILL have. I am reasonably sure that
I will NEVER have the likes of Stg. 44's and PPsH full auto's
Add to that around 75-100 more bolt actions, and I will not only be completely broke, but totally out of room in my house!
Ain't that the truth.
My wish list:
03 springfield (not 03a3)
german k98 not ruskie capture
jap type 99
nambu type 14
artillery luger (yeah right - not unless I steal it)
the list goes on and gets progressively more expensive.
I remember when $100 mausers could scratch that itch.
I forgot two
An Inland M1A1 Carbine and Inland M2 Carbine - to go with my Inland M1 Carbine.
Probably the only MG I will buy, unless an HK Sear and HK21/23 sear host came up for the right price.
My wish list consists of an M1903A4 Sniper Rifle, an M1C Garand Sniper Rifle, a Rock-Ola (or IBM) M1 Carbine and an M1918 BAR.
Um, Let's see, I'd most wont but will never be able to have, a real M14, Thompson and a BAR!
I'm actually pretty happy with what I have but would add a cz-52 and Browning HP.
