    As I can no longer claim my 1947 ex pu, I'll have to think of my other goodies.

    1936-7 dated tula 91/30
    Mint 1944 DOT k98k, not a rare rifle in itself but it is in this condition.
    Nazi marked carcano m38 with 1944 dated 98k sling, not one of those made up ones either.
    1932 dated m27, never reworked with stock disc and matching bolt guide
    Mas 1936 may 1940 production, matching down to the bayonet

    I'm not really sure any of my guns would really qualify as rare except for perhaps my Finn-capture M-38. I do have a non-Turked 1917 Oberndorf Gew.98 which I hear is a little unusual.

    2 questions.

    1. Why can you not claim the ex-pu?
    2. Is the Tula double dated? Still very new to this so I'm trying to figure out the 36-7 significance.

    I can only claim three as remotely rare.

    1900 dated 91/38 with wood crossbolt stock.
    Radionica 124 marked 98K Yugo rework.
    All matching Irish Republic FF marked Enfield No.1 MkIII*

    My collecting comes almost exclusively from bottom feeding at gun shows among the masses of refurbs. I have nothing rare, but if I had to post the five best results from pounding the pavement at gun shows, purchased without any additional premium above the base price for refurb rifles on the table or in the crate, they probably would be:

    1947 91/30 Izhevsk ex-PU (a really pretty rifle in a laminated stock);
    1940 91/30 Tula ex-PEM side rail;
    1942 91/30 Izhevsk ez-PEM;
    1936 91/30 Tula ex-PE top mount, round receiver; and
    1920 91/30 Izhevsk ex-Dragoon.

    Again, nothimg valuable or of interest to the established collectors, but satisfying for a bottom feeder.

    That answers two questions for me. Apparently DWM didn't begin a letter block with zero and they didn't end the block with 9999. But is that just Portuguese contract or did it hold true across the board for all manufacturers of German Mausers?

    I sold the 1947 on the trader a couple of weeks ago. the 1936-7 isnt an MO double date but it actually reads "1936-7" on the barrel. Probably one of the first rifles assembled in 1937 using left over 12936 barrels.

    That pretty much describes me, too. I have nothing that qualifies as "rare" by the standards of some of the guns I've seen posted here. But I do have:

    1: Unissued 1952 Polish M44.
    2: 1948 Russian M44 in laminated stock. Almost certainly a refurb, but you'd never tell by looking at it, and it has no refurb marks.
    3: 1948 Russian M44 in solid stock. This one has a refurb mark on the stock, but it's otherwise pristine.
    4: 1927 Ishevsk ex-dragoon. It's been refurbed (naturally), but it's an outstanding example, with beautiful, undamaged stock finish, great bore and intact bluing.

    All the above are all-matching, with no billboards and no electropenciling.

    These are as close to "rare" as anything I have. Not exactly multi-thousand-dollar collectors' items, but they look mighty nice and I'm proud of 'em.

    I enjoy learning from posts here. The five rifles I posted are somewhat uncommon but not rare; but BeSwift, learjet60, Wolfsburg1, and dolk are causing me to think my Finn capture Izhevsk 1941 M38 actually approaches rare and should have been on my list. For many years I thought it was devalued by the SA marking and scrubbed hammer & sickle. I've known better for a while but it is still hard for me to think of an M38 as rare.

    I wonder if my first year of production 1907 Enfield No. 1 Mk. III has any claim to rarity? It's also difficult for me to think of an SMLE as rare (except for an Enfauser).

    rare is kinda subjective, but I have a few that are hard to find, I think:
    1926 tikka m91's, both bottom and top dated.
    1927 tikka m91's, both stepped and unstepped. one is an unstepped in the stepped barrel s/n range with an "A" bore.
    SIG barrel m24, unstepped barrel, NSD marked.
    1966, 67, and 68 dated rasheeds
    1956 and 1969 dated hakim's, (first and last year)
    1943, 45, and 1955 dated ljungman's
    P-series m91 originally dated 1926, with a 7 overstamped onto the 6 on the date.
    jinsen type 38 arisaka "for training purposes". has the kanji stamped into the dust cover "for training". not a school rifle, but one built by the factory workers in training.

    wouldn't consider them "rare" in the museum sense, but some are pretty hard to find. especially the 1955 dated ljungman.

    Now my Wurfflein single shot rifle in 32-40 has got to be the odd one. Never seen another one

    Since this is my second collection, I will stick with it.

    A mis-stamped model 28 # 87 with a sako gear logo stamp on the top of the SIG barrel shank & over stamped with a SY.
    A updated 28 to 28/30.
    A VKT model 39 with a 09000 serial model 91 serial number.
    A 27 RV.
    A 1926 Tika model 91 in great shape
    A 1939 model 27 it looks as though it just came from a arsenal.
    A record for me 2 model 95 winchester Russian muskets.

    Some real rare birds out there. Thanks for sharing. If I worried about ..........never mind. I do not feel any of my rifles or pieces are super rare, but as mentioned "rare" is subjective. Same with value. In my case "fun and I want it" make the rules. Obviously affordability as well. Mine are listed as I think about them not so much as value or rarity.

    1.1932 NM 1903 Springfield: Civilian bought, in unissued/unused condition, came with paper work and a few other goodies. Rare depression era target rifle. 3rd owner {me}.

    2. Remington M10 trench shotgun. Original blue 90%, matching, orig wood with sling swivel slots, org 23" barrel, no hg or bayonet attachement. I feel this is the most rare of rare US marital trenchguns. Most were cut down to riot length 20" or just scrapped out. D/C'd in 1920's, Off US standard arms list about 1941 or so. Never even heard of them until just before I found this one. This shotgun is correct, but not as issued for WW1. Only a few known with orginal HG and bayonet attachment.

    3. SKY M39 #500013, well used, mismatched SKY wood, floorplate, bolt sn# matches

    4. Fairly late Tika M28 updated to 28/30 specs, metal 90-95%, orginal 1 piece stock all but gone, needs restoring.

    5. BSA co, sht.LE 1905, 1***, has volley sights, 2 pc charging setup, I think original wood on front, rear butt stock replacement, origianl blueing, older style mag, matching numbers. Was told "CR #3715" meant this was some sort of "Irish contract"? Don't really collect Brits, but was told once that this is harder to find?

    6. Tula M91 transitional? 3 digit, original blueing 90-95%, matching #, over stamped 1932 to 1933 date. Mostly a 91/30 with no hood, Tula stock star/1932 date. floor plate not matching/ SA marked. Not sure about rarity, but was told it was kind of hard to come by. Was told the straight front sight was original and not Finn added.. Know very little if anything about this one too.


    Nothing the NRA museum will want from me, but they are mine for now. Cheers, John.

    Getting hard to find PIATS. Especially in the "Peoples Demokratik Republik of Kalifornia" They banned them. I wonder just how dangerous a 200lb spring driving a steel piston can be?

    I have a Romanian M91/30 with a arsenal adjustable trigger and sight hood in VG++ to excellent condition..I picked this up a few years ago and am thinking about trading it off or selling..I see several of you list one as one of your five most rare..What would be a fair price to ask?

    Forgive me for being a bit off topic - Here are some bayonets that are not really rare.....but they can be difficult to find when you look for one & it is rare to find someone who is willing(hard core, or dumb enuff?) to pay the price to own some of them......

    Pahtu.

    What a great thread! Nice bayonets Pahtu!

    "Rare" my kinda steak, but the term is a bit objective. I do know rare,,,, an 1873 Trapdoor Carbine a N. Cheyenne family I know owns. That is all I'm going to say!! [I told them they have a Picasso or Van Gogh] And one guy I know has #2 M1903 Springfield. Again great question. Mine, at least from my heart

    ~ M1895 Winchester in 7.62x54r was in Tsarist, Soviet, Nazi and US Army i.e. captured by Germans and liberated by a Joe at end of war.
    ~ M1915 Beretta 9mm pistol
    ~ Type 2 7.7mm Japanese paratrooper rifle matching w. mum brought back by a guy in the 11th Airborne
    ~ L-35 Lahti 9mm pistol sn 22xx not that rare but I love it
    ~ Whitney-Kennedy 44-40 lever gun sn 665 really worn on forestock from much horseback use, from the Blackfoot Nation. If it could talk!

    Interesting thread...and shows the variance in firearm interest in folks. Most of mine are Italian firearms. Not sure how rare they are, but can be hard to find.
    Italian 91/28 ts Tromboncino(grenade launcher) Used from, roughly, 1929-1933/34.
    Italian 91/38 ts in caliber 7.35. Very few survived
    Italian 91/38 short rifle(not the common 7.9 ts) recalibered to 7.9 by the Gerrmans. Beautiful unused condition.
    Italian cavalry carbine m91/38 in caliber 7.35. Hard to find.
    Mussolini's left hand. Pickled and then dried out recently for my purchase. Least I think it is. Black colored skin, but I figured that was just aging or sumthin'. Anyhoo...just kidding.
    ...hmm...last...uhh...Italian Brixia mortar...m30 Breda machinegun...Schwartzlose machinegun....
    Fun thread guys. Regards, Arditi
