Ahh, no, i saw one that i know just sold in Estacada.Cascade Loan in Auburn? I wanted to round out my Enfield collection. I have 2 Longbranch No4Mk1*, but did not have a UK manufactured No4Mk1. Now I do.
They would likely have killed a whole lot more Germans than they already did.....Gorgeous SVT40. Hold onto that one!
I had the opportunity to shoot an SVT40 a few weeks ago owned by another forum member. Very, very, nice smooth shooting rifle. Great ergonomics - easy to load, charge, and shoulder. Indeed, one wonders what might've happened if the Soviets had more of these on hand...
That sporterised stock has taken maybe $3000-4000 off the insurance value of that otherwise nice rifle. Still, as you are never going to sell it, it's a never-no-mind.No4MK1T Dad bought this from Golden State Arms sometime in the late 50's. If Dad hadn't "sporterized" it this package would be worth more dollars than it is now, but this one won't be for sale, ever. This rifle is a large part of the reason for my fascination of WWII and WWI before hand.

While we're on the WWII kick, here's the dagger Uncle Ed brought back and gave to Dad. I think it's the best letter opener.

Yeah. I know. Dad "fixed" it so it wouldn't be so heavy. He said that was a waste of effort, it just made it look different. He put a Williams sight on it and left the scope at home.That sporterised stock has taken maybe $3000-4000 off the insurance value of that otherwise nice rifle.

Wow, your 55 looks so much light beech wood compared to my 54 - and, um, i want your 43 Faz
The Erma .22 "Luger" looks like an LA22 or EP22. I think they were made in the '60s and '70s.
