I posted this over on CGN (Canadian Gun Nutz) and in honesty this is more of a best of 2010 post as I just don’t seem to find the time to post here or over there as often as I’d like. I’ve had a bunch of stuff go in and out of the gun room this year but here are the Milsurp highlights.
VZ24: I’m not a Mauser guy but when I saw this one I just had to have it. I let a 7.62mm conversion of a No4 Enfield go for this to another island based CGN‘er. It came with the sling, bayonet and 170 rounds of Port. 8mm. Made in 1927 it’s a numbers matching, Non-refurb with a perfect bore.
Polish M44: likely up for sale/trade soon.
M39: An amazing post-war refurb made by Sako.
Envoy: Unfortunately this one has seen a but of Bubba’s work to “improve” it though the work was very well done. It’s been re-bedded, the barrel changed, converted to single shot, and a McCann (I think) trigger added. I’m working on making it back into a repeater but the whole point is that it is an original Envoy.
Mod. 1884 Springfield Trapdoor W/Rod bayonet: Missing much of the original finish on the metal work and with several dents and even a small crack in the stock it has an outstanding bore. This makes it sound a lot worse than it is and for a rifle made in 1893 it’s in great shape. Besides you just don’t see to many un-cut Trapdoors around.

I picked up this Colt just before Christmas. A WWII vet brought it home and carried it at work as a Chicago policeman. He sold it about 40 years ago to a younger policeman who never carried it and recently retired selling it to me. The vet had installed a "Micro" bushing on it which I managed to replace with an original off a a different vet bring back (WWI Colt 1911) which had the markings ground off. Other than that all the parts are original and the slide matches the frame serial number. The bore is perfect and the finish is at least a strong 90%. It cost me two days pay and some help identifying some of the other stuff he was selling. All in all I'm quite pleased.
