    2017 random firearm pic thread.

    I'll start.






    Jap Type "I" , Beretta contract rifle in 6.5 jap . looks like a type 38 but it's on a carcano action using the mauser/arisaka 5rd box.
    no outside markings other than a simple Ser# and barrel proof mark - the beretta markings are on the underside of the barrel .
    Most of these never got issued so a good chunk of them have that NIB look .
    Every man's heart one day beats its final beat, his lungs breathe their final breath and if what that man did in his life makes the blood pulse through the body of others and makes them believe deeper in something larger than life, then his essence, his spirit will be immortalized ,Forever!!!!!!!

    Interesting. I knew they issued more than just the Type 99 rifle which seems to be the one I see most often but never really knew anything about the others. Thank you for posting.

    You're not kidding about that being mint. That's a great-looking Mas! What made you let it go?

    24 calibers in my collection at the time. I'm down to about a dozen now.

    I think it was Whos2know all one word. I met him once, he is here in Georgia and not too far away from me. I think he lives north of ATL a bit.

    Sweet!

    I don't have anything that fancy, but I do have these old things:

    Swiss Vetterli model 1871. Caliber 10.4 x 38 mm. A .44 magnum bullet can be used in these. They are a rimfire and I thought for a while about converting the bolt to centerfire. But being a purist to preserve history I couldn't bring myself to modify the bolt. This thing was very minty, barrel looked like it left the factory yesterday.

    Cartouche on the stock.


    Close up of the action cycled to eject a spent casing. This rifle (if I recall correctly) could hold 10 rounds in a tubular magazine. It loaded like the Winchester rifles through a side loading gate as seen in this photo. And yet the action is a bolt action type. Very odd mashup of technology.

    The middle rifle is a WWII rebuild of a 1903 Springfield rifle built by the Rock Island IL arsenal. This was a minty CMP / DCM rifle. Had a High Standard barrel on it. Bottom rifle is a 1903A3 which is the cost reduced model of the 1903 rifle built during WWII. This is an Smith Corrona manufactured 1903A3. SC was a type writer manufacturer before and after the war. 1903 Springfields had milled steel trigger guards, barrel bands, magazine wells, , magazine follower and even the buttplate. The 1903A3 swapped all these parts to stamped sheet metal versions and put a peep sight on the receiver replacing a very fragile ladder sight with windage adjustment that the 1903 had on it.

    Rear sight of the 1903 type Springfield rifles. The large knob at the far right of the image is the windage adjustment. Notice the white marks on the left of the image. These are the windage increment marks. The sight was very precise but also very fragile. I can't imagine they would survive being hit on a rock or tree branch.
