    G'Day and greetings from down under.

    I've been a member for a while but not actively participated until now.
    Even though I have only been a collector for 4 years I have gathered a significant collection in that short time.
    So far I have confined my interest to the 1870's to 1950's period, no muzzle loaders as yet. I don't specially collect any type or make of gun, everything is of interest especially if its different and unusual or in outstanding condition.

    I'm fortunate to be the current owner of the 1942 simplified Enfield prototype that was featured on Forgotten Weapons, that would have to be the rarest gun I own and I intend to do a full owners review on it when I get time, including a range report. Yes I'm going to shoot it.

    A pair of Winchester 1895 Russianicon contract rifles with almost sequential serial numbers is up there as well. The two rifles could have been packed in the same crate when they left Winchester, both where issued to the Russian army and both where captured by the Finns. One was subsequently converted by the Finns to a sporting rifle in 8.2x53R (a Finnishicon wildcat based on the 7.62x54R case) while the other was left all original and in very good un refinished condition. It's a very accurate shooter as well.
    Both rifles ended up in Oz decades later where I purchased them from different people, what are the odds of that? It's a small world.

    Anyway glad to be aboard guys.

    Hi all,

    My names Ryan i'm a Scot originally from Glasgow now living just a smidgen across the border in Carlisle. My main hobby is 2nd World War living history and for the last 2 years have been trying to slowly build up a snipers display of sorts with my No.4 that I recently had converted to a No.4(T). I've found myself over the last couple years visiting this forum semi-regularly for popular topics on the No.4(T) to gather information and some knowledge and thought it was about time I created an account .

    Hello

    My wife and I own a very busy, full service, Gunsmith business in Jacksonville Florida with a focus on restorations. We are currently restoring a Kragicon 1898 with a new barrel, wood refinish, and bluing. We have 2 Savage 99's, Colt double barrel 12 ga, and a dozen others getting the same treatment. We are also collectors and we recently acquired a Steyr M98 8x56r that needs a barrel. That is how I got here. We have accumulated a lot of gun parts and stocks. While reading your post, I realize we might have stuff listed in wtb. It will take some time to get up to speed but I will make the effort to sort through my bins as questions arise. Feel free to message me with detailed descriptions. Mauser, Springfield 03, and Enfield parts are what we have the most of. Bolts triggers, bands, sights, etc.
