Mine is a Johnson Automatic Rfle.

With a bayonet and scabbard, I guess it is worth around $5000.

Information and photos of rifle

I had never even heard of one until I read "Hatchers Book of the Garand" and saw a picture of one. A year later, I saw one by chance in a local gun store. Almost got screwed on the deal, but came away with it for about $2000 in gun trades.

It was sporterized, but I sent it to a guy in Texas for restoration. Cost $1000.

This rifle can shoot! I have brought it to the range twice and people go nuts over seeing it.

Anyone else got some rare, cool, toys?

OK - list both and why.

Expensive is my 1898 Krag.

Valuable is my Wards Western Field .22 bolt-action. First gun I ever shot. I still clearly remember my dad teaching me how to shoot it.

Next time you have a PA shoot let me know. I'd like to personally evaluate if it points the "right" way.

While not my most valuable rifle by no means, it is now my favorite.

A $89 Romy kit I built, rivots and all into this nice AK.

It went from this..


To this..


Another one of my favorites is the British Enfield I brought back from Afghanistan


I guess the most expensive rifle I have is my SPR

the 38 derringer I got after the boating accident. Which I bought from a Ex- Seal space shuttle door gunner, at a gun show, jerky and beanie baby swap meet.

I've got about $3k tied up in my AR. One custom-built bull-barrel upper, one Stag M4gery flat-top upper, Bushmaster lower with Jewell trigger. Leupold scope on the bull-barrel, EOTech on the Stag.
