Name your next C&R acquisition
« on: December 21, 2012, 10:06:38 pm »
I'm quite undecided myself, but I'm considering a P64 or a CZ82.  I've tried both a few times (friends) - I'm curious what others are considering in 2013?

    Another nagant rifle, probably a 91/30 since I have an m44, and a Nagant pistol. Those things are too cool and would make a neat project.   As far as the rifle, I'm going to re do the stock, cerakote the barrel/receiver, and brass plate most of the hardware, just to put a little lipstick on my piggy. Why you may ask? Why not shall be my reply. Just something fun to do, and it'll be a one of a kind.

    I want an M44, but I don't have a C&R yet and they've been difficult to come by.  We'll see though.  Never know.

    Nagant Rifle and a CZ82...  You can never have too many CZ82's, but the magazines are getting pricey unless your lucky and find them in bulk from time to time.

    Got my M44 @ Big 5 for $100 3 or 4 years ago. If I had known how slim they'd be getting, I wouldn't have chopped the stock and ground down the bayonet lug

    M39, hopefully in the next few months.

    The problem with a c&r license is that eventually you'll have owned pretty much all the surplus stuff at one time or another. Having said that I might pick up another m39 and sks. I kind of miss having those in the safe.

    Been looking at a 1916 Spanish Mauser.  Spanish government re-chambered them for .308 Win (7.62 NATO) before consigning them to a warehouse.  Relatively cheap and in great condition.  ~Craig

    Springfield trapdoor. Just a comment: I love my M44 but my wife hates when I take it to the range, way to loud  :thumbup.
