I posted some pics awhile back of some rifles and there new home and was asked to post some pics of the rifles by themselves.Well I thought that I would start that here tonight and drag it out over a period of time as time permits for me to do so.The first will be my G43 this rifle is matching #'s throughout with proofs still present on the stock.I use to shoot her some in fact I have a shooters kit installed to protect the rifle and use reduced loads on her when i reload.
the mount is a repo real ones when you find them are about $1000 but the scope is right in production # to the rifle with the blue triangle
next up is my FN49 under Argentie Navy Contract another rifle with matching #'s a very solid shooter (forged receiver) no tack driver but effective none the less
Next one up is my M1a standard with a Boyds stock "tack driver" with practice I can pull down 1.5" groups @100yds which I think is pretty good for a no frills girl.I took her for the first time in 3yrs the other day to check out the bar sight I aquired off and old M1 Garand parade rifle;whole rifle $75 the sight was worth that.I love the sight.
The last rifle for today is the newly aquired just today K98 BYF 44 which has matching #'s thus far the receiver,bolt,trigger and front band.I have been looking for one of these for my collection for a long time.I will post some better pics of this one later when the sun is higher in the sky.Cheers
