Took some new photos today since I wasn't super happy with how the ones I started with.

Grasp the rear stock with your left - or, if standing, turn and twist the carrying handle to it's side mount position.

Blah - who cares, lol - but I shuddered when I saw his shooting position.

Some of my WW2 inventory - all legally registered (AW - DWP, my EFP, etc.,) or demilled.
The collection has had some additions since this pic was taken.

ZenmasterT - nice collection you have going on there! You have many bases covered.

How do you like your Ross? Is it US stamped?

Congratulations again on a fine collection and thanks for sharing!

Yes, it is a US Property marked Ross Mk II made in 1909 from what I can tell.



More pictures here if you're interested: http://imgur.com/a/wZh0C#19

As far as how I like it... well, as anyone who has looked into the Ross knows, they have issues. I got it for a fair price at auction so that much I'm happy with. Mine has a dirty chamber (hopefully) or some other issue causing it to fail to extract entirely, still have to tackle that some weekend. I think the mag feed system may be broken as well, or at least I couldn't figure out how to get it to feed from the mag at the range while monkeying around with it for 10 minutes.

It does shoot (one round) at least though, so that is nice!

Awesome, you have a very collectable piece there. They are very interesting rifles and I think they are we well balanced and handle suite well. As you stated, unfortunately, they didn't particularly like Western Front mud, and assembling them wrong has dire concenquenses for the shooter.

Again, thanks for sharing as you don't see them everyday. One of the more obscure US martial arms.

Wow this is an awesome thread. My collection doesn't compare (although I used to own a Greek MS, a rifle I have never seen another Calgunner claim to own).

Zenmasta, is that an 1898 or 1899 Krag Carbine? Can't tell on my phone.....

It's actually a cut down Krag Rifle, made probably in the 1920s or 30s by W. Stokes Kirk according to the folks over at gunboards. The rifle itself was manufactured in 1899.

This isn't a great photograph but I was mostly sold because it still has pretty strong nitre bluing on the extractor running along the top of the bolt. Plus that Krag action is just smooth as butter.

+1 on the smooth Krag bolt....i have handled a few of them and they have to be one of the smoothest actions, before or even since.
I had an opportunity to buy a real uncut 1898 carbine (sporterized with different front sight and wood) but I ended up passing on it. The sheer cost of getting the original parts for it was prohibitive.

This thread delivers!

I will never have a complete WWII collection, due to lack of interest in Japanese, Italian, French, British weapons (blasphemer, I know).. But here are my American WWII era rifles. I really only took an interest and bought the American stuff within the last 6 months or so.


And of course my favorites, the K98's:

Yugo Capture


Banner Standard Modell


I don't remember what this one is, but it is a K98


RC K98



Czech Capture K98



VZ-24 (It was hard to find one that wasn't beat up)

Ha! I actually don't have an Albanian currently. I had one that was near mint, but I traded it for a most excellent and great shooting M1 Garand.

Well, these aren't rifles but I decided to take some pics of my little Mauser Oberndorf pistol collection today before I list a few for sale next week.







A more modern Oberndorf may have snuck in there at the end

My Mosins. Had an Arisaka Type 99 but I sold it to pay for the M44 you see here. That picture with both is the only picture I have of my 91/30 because I hate my 91/30 LOL. I am absolutely in love with my M44; she's lovely.

Now Im looking at vault doors for the room instead.

this is the Imperial German flag, right?

Was the steyr ever used in the Kaiser's service?

Sorry if this seems incredibly pedantic but this seems incorrect to me.

The Steryr-Mannlicher? Was it ever in der Kaisers service?
Yes it was. This particular one was re-issued in 1935. But it has the original issue number on the stock for WWI. And it has the WWII reissued stock numbers as well.

By the way, I didn't hang up another flag so I wouldn't offend any pedantics who learn their WWII history by watching Hollywood movies.
