Who has something really, really rare? So let's see who has the rarest gun and let's have a posted picture.

I'm just lusting for some fresh gun porn.

Hmmm, I might be able to get some stuff from Wichita Arms, or maybe just some antique type stuff. Or do you mean really rare like some of the old experimental stuff from the 60's? I'd have to look to find any thing. You might find some stuff on securityarms.com though. It's about too much really. A whole lot of it's stuff you've seen before with other's nations unique designation though.

Does my 50 count, since nobody has one?

re

My Steyr 1906 (deac) is fairly rare, only a dozen odd thousand were made.

None of my stuff is rare either. I have a bravo-51, but thats a custom rifle, so it doesn't count. Everything else I have there are lots of...

Now, mad, when are you going to chime in? I know you have some very nice and rare firearms.

How do these sound?

1: Japanese Type 99 with 1940 Russian confiscation markings in 75% condition. Got it from the local gun store.

2: Springfield Armory M-1 Garand with Lend Lease markings (Russian) and 1942 German confiscation markings. Got it from the CMP.

3: Springfield Armory M-1903A3 with 1942 Japanese confiscation markings and 1945 American confiscation markings and a bullet hole in the buttstock. Got it from the CMP as well.

4: Original Colt M-16 upper reciever with barrel essembly without the forward assist... picked it up from cheaper than dirt a while back.

5: non working "dummy gun" MP-44 with one box of German 7.92X33mm Kurtz ammo... PS looking for more of the 7.92X33mm Kurtz ammo... if you know where to get some let me know.

Springfield Armory SAR-8

It is SA's copy of the H&K rifle

It took years to find that sucker!

Other than that just some preban colt AR's, preban AK47, got some old... OLD rifles/shotguns from my grandfather (nothing to write home about), run of the mill stuff, nothing very rare here

How about a German Mauser Model 1871/84 in 11mm Mauser caliber. This rifle was made in 1887 and it still has the original leather sling. It was made at the Spandau Arsenal and bears the markings "FW". This stands for Friedrich Wilhelm, who was the Kaiser.

Now this isn't all that rare, but it sure is memorable if you see me shoot it.
Oh yes--it has a bright shiny bore.

A few of the rifles mentioned arnt exactly rare... why i posted them is because of the markings on the rifles. Russian Lend Lease M-1 Garands are very hard to find... ive only seen 2 for sale... not including the one i bought. The springfield 1903 for instance... how many 1903 rifles were captured by the japanese and actually had the confiscation markings stamped onto them... then re-captured by the US and restamped Confiscated by the US... have a bullet hole in the stock and wasnt re-stocked? The Japanese type 99 with RUSSIAN capture markings on it... there was only one battle involving Japan and Russia in WW2 that i know of... i beleive it was in 1939 or 1940... the russians kicked the cr*p out of the japanese... thats why the japanese didnt want to fight the russians in WW2 wich helped end the war in 1945. Like i said... the rifles arnt to rare... but the markings on them make them rare in my opinion.

I do believe that I have everyone beat on this one. I have a steyr ssg 69 with a hammerforged nickel plated barrel that only eight came into the country through GSI. When I get a chance I will post picks. If that isn't good enough I have a dragunov too. I also have a carbon fiber remington that only around 500 were made. So tell me if any of those three are rare enough.

I don't know about rare, but my most unusual rifle is a French Gevarm .22 slam-fire.

Did you guys in the States and Canada ever get these rifles by Gevarm?

They are not too common here and fireing from an open bolt is a bit unusual.

Pest control shooters used them here in the 60's for possums (a major pest in NZ but a protected animal in Australia) with 25 round mags.
