    Default WWII Collection Allied / Axis

    ALLIED
    Starting with My 1943 Winchester M1 Garand with WWII WRA Internals, Lockbar rear sights and trigger group
    1956 SA Barrel







    Early 1945 Springfield M1 Garand (Original Barrel)


    Remington 1911A1 (1943) .45 Auto





    1943 Russian Mosin Nagant (91-30) (DDR ? Disputed)








    AXIS
    The Rifle is a 1942 Mauser K98 bcd "Gustloff" manufactured in Weimar Germany at the Gustloff-Werke factory.
    Also it's a Russian capture "X" above the serial number denotes that, but all the Nazi markings are intact.
    The Barrel was made at Ruhrstahl AG, Brackwede-Bielefel (avk)
    in 1941 and I believe inspected at Ruhrstahl AG, Guss-stahlwerk, Witten (bys)
    The Bayonet is a parade or dress bayonet but is a 1942.









    I am working on expanding my collection to include more WWII Firearms and relics.

    welcome to the Forum!

    Nice collection. Looks great.

    question - Why do you say the Mosin is a disputed DDR re-issue? I have one (a but of surface rust due to poor storage that I want to clean up) that appears to be a DDR re-issue so just trying to learn a bit here. Not my specialty

    Regards,

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

    Thanks. Will look at these links when I'm home from work. I too have read that the triangle with the 1 is a DDR re-issue. Have never heard differently. Also heard that these DDR re-issues are slightly more desirable (which I find odd and not sure why....although not a concern of mine).

    My main goal is alway try to identify the history of each item I own and document it in my little book (i.e. spreadsheet).

    As noted, mine is not in great condition with some pitting and surface rust but don't think I spent more than $75 on it. I normally never clean up an item I buy but am considering trying to lightly remove this rust, but not 100% sure of the least invasive method.

    Will eventually pick up a minty one....
