Hello from behind the Kali Curtain
« on: March 27, 2017, 09:34:38 AM »
Hi Smokers,

I'm a mil-surp, C&R kinda guy, and enjoy the challenge of bringing new life to old iron. I haven't dealt with black powder much, but I did have an H&R Huntsman in .58 cal.

I recently picked up an Uberti 1858 .44 revolver carbine that had the cylinder frozen. It's GTG now.

Like most of us here, I like shooting the old iron but it's gotten expensive as of late, and I really haven't been shooting much in quite a while. But I haven't stopped "acquiring". These are some of my mil-surp bolt guns, a few are unmolested (never arsenal refurbed or upgraded), as issued, parts assembled (mis-matched #s), or cloned (Santa FE). I like a good wall hanger and am not opposed to displaying them.

Here' she is, and some other wood & steel of mine I've rescued. Enjoy, glad to be here. PAX

Welcome from Wisconsin! I also have a C&R license, but have never been much into the mil-surp end.

Hi PAX! glad to have you aboard. You weren't kidding when you said you like "mil-surp, C&R kinda guy" were you? ->i I also have a weakness for them. I remember when the Mausers frist started coming into the country in the early 70s I got my first Mauser for $19.00. I believe the price is 19 x 19 and then some now. :-[
