Default C&R WW2 Collection

Decided to repeat an earlier post showing my collection online for this thread. Started little over a year ago with a C&R and a Garand. And several 'grand' later I end up with this. All bayonets are original & correct except where noted. The picture indicated the models and the manufactured dates. The pride of the collection is a very early Remington M1903 manufactured in December 1941.

Kokura Arsenal, Japan Type 99 Series 23 Arisaka
Mauser, Borsigwalde (ar) Germany Karabiner98
Steyr-Mannlicher Budapest Hungary M95 Stutzen Carbine
Terni Arsenal, Italy 91/28 TS Carcano
Kragujevac Arsenal Yugoslavia M1924 (Pre-War)
Fabryka Broni Arsenal Radom, Poland KAR98AZ with Nazi captured features
Izhevsk Arsenal, Russia, Mosin Nagant Model 1891/30
Long Branch Armory, Canada, Enfield No4 Mark 1*
ROF Fazakerley England Enfield No 5 Mark 1 w/Repro Bayonet
Manufacture d'armes de Saint-Étienn France MAS 36 (Pre-War)
Waffenfabrik Bern, Switzerland Karabiner Model 1931 "K-31" with solders tag

Very nice collection indeed. The first thing that I see is the lack of a No1, preferably an Aussie Lithgow. Nice collection though.

That's quite an accumulation in a bit over one year. I hope you find time to shoot them as that makes owning them much more enjoyable.

It would be nice if you'd included the picture rather than a link.

I shoot regulary and reload for most of them. The most fun is running into an ol' veteran at the range and getting a free 'story' when the see an old rifle.

Nice display of a nice collection. I am inspired to make a similar pic of mine, with their bayos (I only have one Finn bayo, and it's a repro, but the rest all have 'em).

Here's a side view of two sections of the collection: m39's and Mausers.





Some of my builds are in here, too, and the VZ24 now has its rear sight.




I think if I set aside two hours near sunset, that I can get good color for a full bayo, full collection, pic. Mosins have to come out, too.

Here's mine. I am only missing a Russian SKS (with dark wood) and an M1903. Then some non-C&R like a remington shotgun and a ruger p345

Finished the shadow box for my father in law - WW 2 Veteran of Okinawa (96th ID), I put the M1's and the Springfield in a Mahogany box. Woodworking is my other hobby. Updated to add his 7 medals & Presidental Unit Citation. He joined the Army in 1940 so he trained with the Springfield, fought with the M1 Garand, with his officers & mortarman carrying the m1 carbine.

I was worried about security issues too when I designed it...
3/4 hardwood mahogany glued and scewed together - all screws sealed, metal reinforced on all edges. 5" lag screws bolted to the wall frame . Double dead bolt locked. 3/8 Polycarbonate front. Child proof? - yes. 20 lb sledgehammer proof? - probably not. The guns do get locked in a regular safe when I'm travel.
I guess California DOJ will say I need trigger locks on top of all this too.

I'm sorry to say it but, 5 minutes and a crow bar will turn it all into firewood.
It's still a beautiful job!

To the OP,

Great collection, nice to see most of them with bayonets.

I need to photograph my collection again, as their are some new arrivals that have not been photographed.

I was tempted to do the international multi-time period collecting - but, I have to say, when I decided to focus on one country, one war, the collection really started to get interesting.

Thanks for sharing,

Pit.

Thank you for sharing. I hope to one day have such a collection. I'll hopefully get my C&R in April.

I like that setup. My great grandfather was 96th ID. He originally joined the Navy but heard that if he was Army then he'd be back in Texas with his wife, so he requested it. He hopped on a train and watched Texas go right by on the way to the Pacific.

I shoot with people with modern scoped rifles and service rifles all the time and it freaks them out when I have a good run. I get asked if I have done something special to the rifle. No they are mostly just as I received them..




Cheers
