    Hi All

    My name is Dan. I have been interested in military firearms since I was a kid. My Uncle gave me a 6.5 Arisakaicon, he brought back from WW II, when I was 14. I banged out ammo for it with a mallet and a Lee Loader using the one box of Norma brass that came with the rifle. My first full time job was a stock clerk at a Army - Navy Surplus store at age 16. One of my duties was opening crates of rifles and handguns and cleaning them up for display on the sales floor. No one else liked doing that job but I loved it. This was before 1968 so no import marks or keeping track of serial numbers. Just clean them up and get them out front for the customers. Oh! I almost forgot - and put a $29.95 price tag on them. As I recall, I was making 75 cents an hour so most of my paycheck was spent on guns and ammo. Over the years, I traded all of them off for "newer and better" modern guns. At least that's what I thought at the time.

    Introduction

    Hi everybody,

    Thanks for the add to the forum. I've been collecting military surplus/militaria for around 3 years now, and it's grown into one of my favorite hobbies. I'm looking forward to seeing all the information, stories and pictures that you guys are sharing, and hopefully I'll be able to add in some of my own. I'm also on CGN, however I go by ap96 there.

    Hey All;

    Enjoyed looking around and figured on joining up.
    I guess I'm a collector of Lee-Enfields now.
    Started off with a Ishapore 1937 ShtLE III and a Winchester P14.
    Some how they reproduced in my safe and I now have two more.
    A B.S.A.Co. 1917 ShtLE III* and a Enfield 1917 ShtLE III*
    All numbers match but unfortunately, all were sporterized, but HOLY accurate.

    Thanks.

    Hello everyone. I'm looking to get into milsurp firearms.

    Hello everyone,



    My name is Lance Givilancz and i am looking to get into milsurp firearms. I just got my C&R license today and am looking to purchase my first milsurp firearm. I only have a limited budget of around $700 at the moment and would really love to get my hands on a Lee Enfield NoI MkIII withing that price range but it seems like maybe the market has dried up for those budget enfields. If anyone could point me in a direction, that would be awesome.

    New to the MilSurp Forum

    Iím retired military, been around the military all my life, had a chance to shot a lot of different firearms, some modern, most were military surplus. More of a shooter than a collector, have had a FFL03 C&R for some time. Picked up have a few U.S.iconand non-U.S. firearms, both rifles and handguns. Like to work with old pieces, not a purest but can't support the Bubbafication of a fine firearm, but think you should clean, oil and shot them. If I buy something I plan on shooting it no safe Queens that's what a museum for. Now that Iím retired a clock and calendar no longer my concern
