    Announcement Welcome .... New Members, Please Read First!

    Welcome to MILSURPS.COM, an on-line resource for collectors of military surplus firearms and accessories.

    First of all, we'd like to extend our sincere thanks and appreciation to Greentips and Sparhawk of CGN, without whose gracious assistance in helping this site get started, it would not be possible.

    Our on-line Milsurp Knowledge Librariesicon contain detailed reference research and forums, covering various genres of old milsurp collectibles. The material ranges from general non-copyrighted (or copyrighted with written release) historical documentation, to detailed high resolution photo montages of milsurp firearms and accessories. These photo pictorials containing over 15,000 pics are designed to show what original and "all correct" specimens of milsurp models from various countries should look like. The site is intended to give the average milsurp collector a place to go and compare various wood and metal markings through high resolution close-up digital pictures, as well as other relevant details, in regards to a piece that they may be looking at buying, or validating the correctness of one they've perhaps already purchased.

    The content is constantly vetted and maintained by an Advisory Panel of current members, all of whom have become recognized as having an extensive and broad milsurp knowledge base of experience, regarding various collectible areas and genres. These members have always been highly supportive and active within our milsurp collector community and they have agreed to assist in maintaining the integrity of the content within our Milsurp Knowledge Libraries.

    We hope that this site will become a valuable resource to the general milsurp collector community, helping all of our members to better enjoy their chosen hobby. We are open to suggestions as to how it can be improved, or if you have a specific question that you think would make for a good topic of a permanent article, please direct it to one of the Milsurp Knowledge Library Advisory Panelicon members, whose names are displayed in "green" with the text "Advisory Panelicon Member" appearing directly underneath their name.

    Although the Military Surplus Collectors Forums are FREE to everyone interested in these old milsurp firearms, some members have graciously chosen to voluntarily donate a nominal amount of money, to help defray several thousand dollars in annual system bandwidth, server, disk storage and maintenance costs. This special group of members receive additional recognition and access capabilities to MILSURPS.COM, such as a colored "Contributing Member" banner panel under their name, a unique color display of their chosen username, unlimited picture uploads and file storage on the system, ability to delete their own posts, a substantial increase in private message storage to 2,000 PM's, plus other general priority based conveniences. In addition, Contributing Members enjoy value added services such as full access to the resources of our Appraisals, Fakery, Dispute Resolution & Mediation Forum (click here), no limits to classified ad posting in the Quartermaster Stores (click here), plus substantially increased on-line image storage hosting for their personal pictures in the Photo Gallery (click here) area of the MILSURPS.COM server (similar to PhotoBucket).
