    Although not too rare, I do have a 1943 Waffenamt marked Star B (I know about the rumors and have checked with most reliable sources on identifying obvious WA Fakes on Star Bs and it appears to be like the generally accepted legit ones). Regardless, the SN traces to wartime production and I think that makes it a little better than the later ones - from a Historical prospect anyway.

    Also, although not vintage, I was able to get my hands on a CZ97B "RSR Special" in Satin Nickel - 1 of 250 made and not known to be sold retail. Didn't know that until after I got it home. Its a safe queen now with only about 75 rounds through it. I really liked the way it shot but stopped shooting it when I found out it was limited production. That stunk, but the good part was I convinced the wife it was soooo rare that I should not shoot it anymore and she let me buy another .45 so I would have one to shoot. Happy ending all around...

    Wow, there are some really nice and unusual stuff running around. I am afraid I am still in the minors as far as some of these go. Thanks for sharing here are mine.

    Winchester M1 carbine first year production non-rebuild. As far as I can tell it is just like it came off the assemble line. No bayo lug old stye mag release etc.
    Swede M41B
    Remington Mosin model 91 Finn captured and not rebuilt. It just drips history but is not in the best condition and it came with a period sling WOOT!
    Sig SHR970, just try finding one at a reasonable price ( I know it is a commercial rifle but wha the heck)

    Nothing else really qualifies
    Rico, we'll need special tactical equipment.

    One of a kind.
    A double muzzle loading percussion shotgun, 16 Ga., made for Kaiser Wilhelm I (then the Crown Prince of Prussia) by F. Mundt of Neu Wedell, Prussia. Big Willy fell off his horse and shot himself in the leg with this gun in 1861. It was crudely nailed and wired back together and used by his old hunting guide for years after he emigrated to the USA so it required extensive restoration.

    I guess, going by the numbers it is a 1919 Tula, 1930 Izh rebarrel.
    British Belt-pistol, 2nd Land pattern - Brought back from Afghanistan in the mid-late 60's. Possible trophy of the British retreat from Kabul.

    Wow - some nice stuff here. I too want addresses to i can get in on the "surprise socialism".

    Rare - i have nothing rare except a bunch of Bosnian war trophies - rare in the sense that their covered in trench art.

    If it I were to be subjective, my 'rarest' piece is a Rifle Dynamics 7.62x54r GSR - there's only 3 or 4 in existence as of right now.

    Can't really claim that I have too much in the realm of truly "rare". Two years ago the list would have been longer.

    Only ones that seem to fit are:

    Schmidt-Rubin K-11 serial number E.1
    1894 Chatellerault, Turkish markings and Finnish markings.
    1900 Tula with Turkish markings and Serbian crown.

    Got a few others that are special to me, but not what I'd call overly rare.
    Nothing worthwhile ever comes easily.

    West German made rifle made by Heym for Montgomery Wards and marked Western Field. It has double set triggers that when set only takes a few oz. to set off.

    Default Yep, still in the Minors

    Yeah, so... nice collection Vic...wow... In addition to being insanely jelous, I'm also somewhat amazed by the scope of your collection..

    Mine is a lot less interesting;

    1) M47/58
    2) M-95 Long rifle marked to the 1st Bosnian-Herzgovinian Regt. (still in 8x50)
    3) Vz-23/24 "parts gun" (possible Spanish Civil War rifle)
    4) 1899 m91 Dragoon (not updated)
    5)...and a Vz-24 with (most) of the King Michael crest still intact (Still on the BBT though...)

    "Terror is not a new weapon. Throughout history it has been used by those who could not prevail, either by persuasion or example. But inevitably they fail, either because men are not afraid to die for a life worth living, or because the terrorists themselves came to realize that free men cannot be frightened by threats, and that aggression would meet its own response. And it is in the light of that history that every nation today should know, be he friend or foe, that the United States has both the will and the weapons to join free men in standing up to their responsibilities."

    Mine is a lot less interesting;

    1) M47/58
    2) M-95 Long rifle marked to the 1st Bosnian-Herzgovinian Regt. (still in 8x50)
    3) Vz-23/24 "parts gun" (possible Spanish Civil War rifle)
    4) 1899 m91 Dragoon (not updated)
    5)...and a Vz-24 with (most) of the King Michael crest still intact (Still on the BBT though...)

    Great stuff. Just starting is vastly different then lifelong. There are guys here who just blow me away every day.
    Great hobby we have though aint it?
