    My Lee Enfield No 4 Mk I

    Hey all, thought I'd share my newest purchase. It's a Savage made 1942 Lee Enfield No 4 Mk I. Looking forward to shooting some rounds out of her!

      So what's the deets on your Luger pistol and M1 Garand?

      That leaves another rifle that I don't have the chops to identify...

        The Luger is an all numbers matching 1941 byf (Mauser made) pistol. The M1 is a Springfield, dated March 1942 with a 1960 VAR barrel. The drawing numbers on the other parts all fall within the WWII time period. The stock is aftermarket. The other rifle is a Mauser K98k, made in 1944 in German occupied Czechoslovakia. It's also numbers matching except for the stock which is still dated 1944, but must have been changed out at some point, either during the war or post-war.

          Cool beans, I have a 1940 Mauser Luger ("42").

          I would have *guessed* at the "other" rifle as being a K98, but as I don't have one, I don't know much about them. I also have a '47 "Jungle Carbine".

          Nice collection there!

                    German issue to Mountain/ski troops and some paratrooper groups. Developed in Czechoslovakia by Brno as the Model 33 carbine and converted to 7,92x57mm for the Germans in 1940 as the G.33/40 carbine with 19.4 inch barrel. Only manufactured in 1940 (945 code) 1941 (dot 41) and 1942 (dot 42 codes. A few were manufactured with a folding stock which I was able to locate some photos.

                    My carbine has a 12-41 dated barrel in nice condition, I never shoot 7,92mm military ammo as the recoil is bad, I use to shoot commercial Remington 8mm Mauser which was downloaded.

                    Most of these 33/40 carbines were sporterized by gunsmiths as the small light action was perfect for sporters after WW2. I bought mine from a veteran, and is all matching. These carbines have been faked because of their value

                      Very cool! I actually have seen that folding stock in photos online :-)
