Pictures of my rifle collection.
US Springfield Armory 1898 Krag SN 104,XXX rifle. Sporterized with 21" barrel; M1903 front sight and Redfield 70k receiver sight. Bluing has faded to gray patina. Almost no pitting or rust. Stock in good shape with no cracks; fits like a glove.
Spanish Mauser M1916 7x57mm short rifle. Has no crest, mismatched stock/magazine/triggerguard; receiver/barrel/sear/trigger match. Bolt number mostly destroyed; not enough for identification. Barrel and receiver in good shape; little pitting/retains 75% of blue. Lower receiver pitted and rusty/ had to replace floorplate retaining latch pin. Stock in poor condition: cracked at tang and from barrel band to end cap.
1923 Czech Vz.98/22 7.92x57mm long rifle, SN C48XX. Has Czech Army acceptance stamps on barrel and receiver; Turkish property stamp and Arabic numerals on sight. Most parts matching. Bolt has CZ stamps, but has SN E46XX, indicating one made for export. Minor scattered corrosion in barrel; rifling strong. Most exposed bluing is gone, but metal is not corroded. Action locks up tight; no play in bolt.
1919 Steyr M.1895 8x56mmR. Has Czech "Rampant Lion" proof marks and military district stampins. Serial'ed bolt and conversion to 8x56R suggests service in Bulgaria. Bore mint, stock heavily sanded during refinishing. No import mark.
1943 Fazakerley No.4mk.1 Lee-Enfield, .303UK. A restored sporter, with fore-end, handguards, bolt, magazine and sights from 1953 No.4mk.2 with a rotten bore.
1918 RSAF-Enfield SMLE Mk.III*. Stock has been refinished with polyurethane; bolt-barrel-receiver-sights all match, and may also match stock and hardware (possible FTR, but stock markings mostly sanded off). Every part except buttplate marked EFD. Bore frosty, but decent crown/rifling remaining and shows respectable accuracy at 100yds. Sling is unknown cotton w/ steel and brass fittings. No import mark.
