re: Anyone collect military surplus stuff?

Cool stuff dude. I dont collect military surplus, but I do like antique military rifles. I have right now a 1943 Mosin Nagant with a period correct scope, and I am in the process of buying a M1 Garand Carbine...

Nice collection man, seriously.

I see you must be a big supporter of gays in the military showing off your Rem oil. Is that standard issue now days.

Re: Anyone collect military surplus stuff?

My mosin is my favorite rifle of all. My dad got it for me for my 25th birthday. It came with all of the original tools, oil can, sling, and it has a working bayonet.

The one i got had never been fired. Rifle is very accurate, I am able to fire 1" groups at 100 yards. Scope needs fine tuning i think, at about 250 yards it seems hit or miss sometimes. Do yourself a big favor and buy the american made, non-corrosive ammo. The old russian surp is very cheap and very available, but it makes cleanup messy. I've shot about 100 rounds of the non-corrosive type, and the inside stays fairly clean. The difference to me was night and day.

Re: Anyone collect military surplus stuff?

Corrosive ammo is no big deal if you understand it properly. The salt in the primer is what attracts moisture = corrosion/rust. I just bring the popular solution which is a bottle of Windex and spray down the bore and the bolt then do my regular cleaning, then oil.
Its really quite easy.
A few years ago when it was ultra cheap I bought a few thousand rounds of surplus 7.62x54R and continue to shoot it.

Yeah i have several boxes of "brown bear" that i bought online. Have been using the windex on it since i first got it. I also found a great site online7.62x54r.net where i learned alot about care of the rifle, and its history and all that. pretty informative and the people are super helpful.

Ok cool. It's great to find another person on the warpath who shares my enjoyment of mosin nagants....

The Mauser bayonets are similar, especially the scabbard.

Here's a typical "spam can" of the surplus 7.62x54R I bought.
This can happens to be Albanian.

You'll also notice the difference in the barrel rings. Some are extended and some are not. They will only fit on their respective guns.
