The Kimber on the bottom isn't C&R but it is Mil surplus.

Nice rifles.

Wiith that tiny scope, the Kimber 82 looks kind of like a chopped '51 Merc. :p

Yep, I gotta work on that. Had to prioritize the carbine over a scope for now. I keep on hoping to find the original peep sights for something less than an arm and a leg; maybe just a couple of fingers or toes.
Maybe for Christmas:p

Nice rifles!

I used to have a very nice HRA Garand. I had to sell it for lunch money when I was in college. Still regret it.

Hey there partner, it seems like you have one to many (surplus) garands there my friend.

I will gladly alleviate you of this problem and provide you some funds towards an M-14, AR-15, KRAG, Government, Spencer carbine, Springfield musket, or ol brown bess, though on those latter two you would have to sell your whole collection to get a decent one.

Oh, might I suggest a 1911 if you are doing the WWII thing? I would also suggest and auto ordinance but that little nob of wood will get you into trouble.

Actually, I need to get one more Garand! Son #3 was just born last week:D. Gotta get at least one per kid.

That is the right altitude. Later they will thank you. I ran out of money when I discovered woman as a teenager and so no more historic rifles were bought. I bought historic moments, and no kids were made luckily...hehe

CMP might have them in '08 or '09. It's on the list...

Good to know. A nicely sportered M1917 that I inherited from my grandfather was my first gun; I later got a mil-spec version for my collection. Great rifle.

The chopped look is over. Sights arrived today, range trip to zero them on Friday!

Man, I am an idiot for not jumping on those cheap Kimber's when the CMP had them!
