I'm finally placing my order for my service grade Garand Monday from CMP, then the dreaded 60-90 day wait begins! This will be my first Garand and I'm really excited over this purchase. In the meantime I think I'm gonna go for another K98 with all the markings intact. I kinda hate buying a gun that I already own one of, but for some reason I really like these Mausers. I've yet to buy a 91/30 or a SKS, but as cheap as they are and as popular as they are I think I can wait a couple more months before I buy those. What's your next buy?

I already have a K31 in beech. My next purchase is going to be a tiger striped walnut K31. It might just be a "scare tactic", but alot of importers are saying that these are the last shipments of the Swiss K31- now may be your last chance. I will be getting a Garand as well, but I have decided to actually travel to the north store in Ohio and pick mine out personally. That trip will have to wait for the spring/summer.

Carefull. I said the same thing about Enfield Jungle Carbines too. Some folks said the same about CZ52 pistols too.


I'm looking at the 1903's that CMP has for sale.

A high numbered Springfield O3' will be my next purchase.

Either a 9mm SBR AR or SBR ar in 5.56. I cannot decide which.

I was about to take a hour and 20 minute drive over to the CMP north to pick up a 1903 and a garand but I saw this and had to have it. Should be here by Wednsday

OOOh, That is nice.

I'd really like to get a C&R TT33 Tokarev pistol to be a companion to my SVT-40 rifle.

Garand for me. I haven't bought a gun in a long time. I'm not sure if I will go with Service grade or Correct grade. Not sure when either

Lee Enfield No. 4 Mk. I or an '03 Springfield.

I really need an enfield, put off buying one of the Mk4 no1's that AIM had up a few weeks ago, figured they'd still be there by now.

One of the gunstores here in town has both a 1944 Remington Rand M1911A1 and a 1918/19 Colt M1911...if either of those are still around when my tax refund arrives, I plan on grabbing it.

If not, I'm looking at a Finn Mosin, probably an M39.

Over the last two months I have picked up a number of items that I did not need, but grabbed them anyway. Lately it seems that I walk in somewhere and see something and bam I'm laying money down.

Non-import k98 ,Finn 91,Finn Dragoon, Swede M-38, and a 1917.

Next one should be something new maybe on the lines of a .45 or SBR my Krink.

I just ordered a M39 from gunsnammo. Can't wait to see how accurate it is. Don't know how long Bill will leave it on his site but here it is

i have an m48BO on the way from classic arms.

I have a RRA LAR-10 on order...

But I'm guessing that I'll stumble across something(s) between now and when the LAR-10 gets delivered...

I haven't seen it yet, but I will know it when I see it. Probably a Mauser or a Mosin Nagant. U.S. rifles are priced a bit high for me so I only have 1 Garand and 1 '03 Springfield.

Until today I would have said "M/N M44". That's why I went to the pawnshop this afternoon. Didn't have one, but they did have a nice K-31 that came home with me. See my thread below.

What do you name a blonde Swiss girl??

Well, duh!!!!


Heidi, of course.
Link Posted: 3/21/2006 7:58:58 PM EDT
Well, I'm *planning* for my next purchase will be one of the following:

K31, M38, or M44

Of course, something may jump in there instead...but that's what I'm planning.

Gotta get the RPK finished first.

CZ52 from AIM. ( they keep sayin they're comin!)

I would like to have a WWII Japanese Type 99 rifle
Link Posted: 3/25/2006 10:04:30 PM EDT
A Colt 1020 as soon as they are available...............

Just yesterday at the gun show: Yugo M48A. Fully matching serial numbers, including the number on the stock. $200. My first Mauser. The four others I found for sale at another table for $40 less looked significantly worse. No accessories came with it. I've been wanting a Mauser for years.

My next is probably going to be a receiver and compliance parts for my FAL kit. A K31 or Swedish Mauser might come first, though. My Nagant looks like it could use a buddy.
Link Posted: 3/26/2006 7:07:33 PM EDT
Toss up! An FR-8 or 91 Argentine Mauser in a local shop. Maybe both!

Nice Yugo GunLogic!
