I was wondering how many of the folks here are into Mil-Surp and what got you turned on to them? Do you collect from a certain era or all over the place?

My mil-surp collection includes two Mosins, three Enfields, a M1 Grarand, and a K98 Mauser. I just love the fact that they have history, scratch that they are part of history. As for era mine are mostly WWII but, one of my Enfields is from WWI. I was considering expanding my collection into other eras like Korea with the purchase of another enfield or two. I have a thing for .303 Brit. my Grandmother was a English war bride and so I have a couple great uncles that were in the RAF and with 1st Para so I know they fired off quite a few .303 rounds in their time.

I have mosin nagants from at least 2 wars. I have a 1917 M-91, a 91\30, a 44 and a 59. I also have a enfield 303 from 43. I do want a german rifle to join the mix and a 03 springfield and M 1 but that is in the future when the money is there.

I have an M-44, K98, pair of Type-99's, RFI Enfield, AK, PSL, etc......

I dig the M-44 and the K98, while it kicks like a mule - is a strait shooting gun, love it!

I've really got an accumulation, not really a collection. After checking my inventory sheet, I've got about 40 milsurps, depending on your definition.
3 Lee Enfields, a NO1MkI, NO4MkI, and a 2AMkIII
Mosin Nagants, M91,3 M91/30s, including a sniper, M27, M38, M39, 4 M44s, and an M59.
Mausers, an M91, M95, M96, 2 M96/38s, M38, G98, M1909, Vz24, 2 M24/47s, M48. A couple are cut, and I'm not counting sporters built on Mauser actions.
Mas36, Mas 49/56.
Schmidt Rubin M1911 and K31.
Arisakas, a T38 (cut, unfortunately) and T99.
Llungmann and a Hakim.
Martini Henry MkIV
Kropatschek and a Swiss Vetterli
Other odds and ends.

I like milsurps, what can I say? Everything is shootable. Just finished loading for the Vetterli, only thing I haven't tooled up for is the Kropatscek, and I guess that will be next.
