Arisaka Type 38 Trainer Rifle, Ammo, Case, and Book $395

If you are collecting WWII rifles, military rifles, or are interested in some of the best rifles made, then the Arisaka should be near the top of your list. This particular rifle is in very good condition for it’s age and appears to have the original sling.

This is a standard 31″ barreled rifle before they reduced the length on the Type 99 or the Type 38 carbine or cavalry model.

It is assumed it was de-commissioned and given to a training academy as it has markings from a training academy.  If you look at the mum, you can see they have added 3 half circles which is how a rifle is marked to indicate it was “cancelled” from the Imperial service and made available for training.  It is called a “cancelled” mum, not an obliterated, ground, or otherwise defaced mum.

The most unique feature is the  nickle plated floor plate as I haven’t seen this on other Arisakas and the people I have talked to haven’t seen this version.  After further research, it seems the earlier training rifles had this presumably nickle plated floorplate.

Optionally, you can also buy the Type 30 sword bayonet is the earlier and rarer type with a hooked quillion guard.  The bayonet is $150 and can be bought with the rifle or without.

Included is the box of ammo which I believe is Chinese manufactured plus a partial box of modern ammo.  The rifles comes with the Doskocil case.

NOTE:  Many of these rifles are missing the dust cover over the bolt and the cleaning rod.   This rifle is complete with what appears to be the original sling.

WWI, WWII and later US Military Surplus Items Going on Sale

I have begun posting some of the items for sale on two sales sites and indicated I had other items to sell so I thought I would refer people here to see all of the items at once, easier than through the online sales sites.  The majority of the items haven’t been priced as I need to determine fair market value to determine my selling price from, usually less than what they sold for elsewhere.  I am accepting offers on the various items or the information from those who have some interest.

M1 Carbine 30rd magazines, dust covers, sling, oiler, bandoleer kit, etc.

M1 Carbine 30rd magazines, dust covers, sling, oiler, bandoleer kit, etc.

This is a set of M1/M2 carbine accessories.  Starting upper left.  M3 Flash hider made at the Springfield Armory, very few real ones available.  Then a new old stock sling and oiler, probably repro.  Then four 30rd mags.  The one in the bag is made in Taiwan, the others have no identification, just like authentic ones.  Then a bracket to connect two 30-round mags together.  In the next row, A M4 bayonet in a M8A1 scabbard.  The leather handle models were made by Utica Cutlery in 1944 and 1945. The blade looks like it was never actually used and certainly wasn’t sharpened, or if it was, so professionally  it looks new.  It has scabbard wear from being drawn out, but that’s it.  The SL8A1 scabbard is the second version with the hooks for the web belt and was issued at the time the bayonets were.  Made by PWH.  Next is a two dual 30rd magazine pouches marked 1951, included are four new mags in their original wrapper.  Two opened, two sealed.  Next, in the bag are original rubber dust covers that went over the end of the mag when in the pouch.  Next is an aftermarket steel ventilated handguard, so although not authentic, handy for keeping the barrel cool when you run your M2 at full auto.  Next is a bandoleer kit.  Contains one bandoleer, and the spoons for your rounds, and the cardboard that is inserted in the bandoleer to keep things neat and tidy.  It is marked “Du Lacher 1955”.

WWII web belt with carbine mag pouch and two 15rd mags

WWII web belt with carbine mag pouch and two 15rd mags

This is an early WWII war web belt as it is khaki-colored before they eventually darkened to olive drab.  The belt is stamped “US” and has a 40 on it.   With the belt is the matching khaki dual mag pouch for 15rd magazines and included are two used magazines, probably the actual ones from WWII.  The pouch is marked Avery 1943.

WWII soldier's equipment, pot helmet, shovel, bayonet, web belt, pouch, and canteen

WWII soldier’s equipment, pot helmet, shovel, bayonet, web belt, pouch, and canteen

This assortment starts with a early “pot” helmet.  It only has the chin strap on one side and has some rust mainly on one side of the interior.  Next is the same M4 bayonet from the carbine grouping.  Next is a WWII trenching shovel, Ames 1944 and the matching cover, St. Joseph Tent and Awning, also 1944.  I suspect an original pair.  Next is the insulated canteen bag, the canteen cup insert, LF&C 1918, that thing made it since WWI !!!, and the canteen, Vollrath 1945.  Ya, it has a ding…more than one 🙂  In front of that is a later WWII web belt in the olive drab compared to the khaki one above.  This has a small pouch, maybe it was their first aid kit which was one bandage and a syringe full or morphine.  Sorry, no bandage included.  The pouch appears to be 1952, the belt has something printed on it and someone with better eyes and imagination could maybe read it.

Post-WWII web belt, canteen, bayonet, mag/grenade pouch, and field bag

Post-WWII web belt, canteen, bayonet, mag/grenade pouch, and field bag

Last are some odds and ends, mostly Vietnam era.  First a canteen marked 1991, probably the newest thing here.   Then a M7 Bayonet made by Imperial and a M10 scabbard, NEW.   The web belt is a model LC-2 made at the Arkansas Industries for the Blind.  M-16 triple magazine pouch with grenade pouches on the side.  Says “US” on the front, “06” on the back, but I don’t think 2006.  (Grenades not included)  The Combat Field Pack M-1961.  It has a canvas bag, but there is an interior weather resistant cover that pulls out and then covers up everything inside and “seals” the top.

NRA Life Membership for $600, beat the Price Increase

The NRA has made two announcements to their recruiters.

M1 Garand Springfield Armory CMP Special Excellent Condition – Extra Items

M1 Garand in CMP hardcase with paperwork and accessories

M1 Garand in CMP hardcase with paperwork and accessories

The M1 Garand is a .30 caliber semi-automatic rifle that was the standard U.S. service rifle during World War II and the Korean War and also saw limited service during the Vietnam War. Most M1 rifles were issued to U.S. forces. The Garand is still used by drill teams and military honor guards. It is also widely used by civilians for hunting, target shooting, and as a military collectible.

The M1 rifle was named after its Canadian-American designer, John Garand. It was the first standard-issue semi-automatic military rifle. By all accounts the M1 rifle served with distinction. General George S. Patton called it “the greatest battle implement ever devised”

In the past several years, the M1 Garand, regardless of condition, has become a very hot collectors’ item and sound financial investment. The popularity of the M1 Garand continues to grow as hundreds of new Garand “Fun” Matches are being held all across the USA each year.

This rifle was purchased directly from the CMP and was ordered in CMP Special grade. “CMP SPECIAL: (EXCELLENT)” (The tag says Special Field, but this certainly isn’t a “field grade” rifle.)

“CMP’s new grade of M1 Garand. This rifle consists of a new production walnut stock and handguard set with CMP cartouche, a new production Criterion (made by Krieger) barrel and new web sling. Receiver and most other parts are refinished USGI, but some parts may be new manufacture. Receiver may have pitting.”

From the pictures, you can tell this looks like it came off the assembly line in December, 1944. Yes, if you stare hard enough, you can see a few pits in the receiver, but with the new Parkerization, they are almost not noticeable. The part that looks in worse shape is the portion under the barrel where the bayonet attaches. Not knowing what a new one looks like, I can’t tell if it looks like it did new or not, but wanted to provide the picture for you to see yourself. Everyone who has seen the rifle thinks it is brand new, assuming it is a reproduciton.

The stock is unfinished wood. The CMP site tells you several ways in which you can finish the wood depending on the look you want. I was going to put boiled tung oil on it vs. the more common boiled linseed oil as I think tung oil has better attributes.

In addition to the what came new with the rifle, included is a reproduction bayonet that will look good with the rifle when on display. I am including an additional 20 new en-bloc clips in their original packaging.

1916 Spanish 7mm Mauser w/bayonet SOLD

Have available for sale is a 1916 model Spanish Mauser Short Rifle. (Thanks to Zachary for purchasing this piece of Spanish History!

These Mausers came out of the Fabrica de Armas de Oviedo plant, otherwise known as the Oviedo Arsenal.  These rifles were used in the Spanish Civil War which was from 1936 to 1939.  This rifle likely saw duty in the Civil War and has plenty of markings showing the use over many years.  I purchased it in “good” condition, added it to my Mauser collection, and never fired it.  With the rifle I purchased a box of 7mm ammo made for the Venezuelan army by FN in Belgium.  I was also able to pick up a Mauser bayonet with scabbard that fits the rifle, but is not likely to be of Spanish origin.  I am also including some leather ammo pouches that were probably made later, but like the rifle, will need some cleaning up.

Russian Tula TOZ-35M Free Pistol Exc/Like New SOLD

Russian Tula TOZ-35M Free Pistol

Russian Tula TOZ-35M Free Pistol

 

Do you want to have the most accurate pistol on your block or at your pistol range?  Then don’t look further.  You won’t find anything as accurate for less than $1500-2000.  I have seen retail prices on these as high as $1200 and you will see these for same typically in the $600 range.

The TOZ-35M was designed to compete in the Olympic 50 meter slow fire competition called free pistol and has won as recently as 2013.  This pistol is made to be custom fitted to the shooter.  As
you can see in the picture, the grip is a sold walnut block to be customized to fit your hand like the proverbial glove!  Even the two wood pieces that make up the grip are serialized to the handgun.

In Europe these are called 5.6mm, their name for .22LR.  These are frequently called Russian pistols, but these were made in the Soviet Union era.  This one is a 1988.    TOZ stands for Tulsky Oruzheiny Zavod which is the Russian name for the Tula factory as we know it.

These are top quality handguns are made with surgical accuracy built into every detail. Each pistol comes in beautiful wood case with small spare parts, cleaning brushes and cleaning rod.

This was graded as excellent but is likely brand new.  Certainly wasn’t shot with these grips 🙂   I am selling this pistol for the price you see on the ones rated Good to Very Good which were likely used or have some condition issue, or perhaps missing parts.

Specifications and Features:
.22 Long Rifle/5.6mm
Single Shot Martini Type Rear HIinged Breech Block
1:17 Rifling 6 Groove
11.75″ Barrel
Steel Frame
Adjustable Sight
Walnut Unfinished Grip
4 lbs
13.10 lbs. w/ case
17″ Long
Black Matte

Comes with nice original fitted case. instruction booklet, cleaning rod and supplies, and spare parts.  The parts kit, in their own fancy wood box, contain springs, front sights, firing pins, and parts needed for any potential maintenance or adjustment you may wish to make.  As it is, the triggers on these require virtually no effort to fire….I have heard the trigger described as similar to a flea fart 🙂  It is that “light touch” that helps maintain the accuracy.  These guys just don’t score you by the bullseye, but to the tenths of a bullseye or ring.

Heckler & Koch SL8-1/G36 5.56/223 Converted

Heckler & Koch SL8-1/G36 5.56/223 Converted

The Heckler & Koch SL8 is a semi-automatic rifle manufactured by Heckler & Koch. It is the civilian version of the Heckler & Koch G36.

The rifle fires the .223 Remington or 5.56×45mm NATO cartridge and feeds from a 10-, 20- or 30-round detachable magazine. Unlike earlier types of HK rifles, it is not a roller lock bolt but rather a lug-type rotating bolt system as seen on the AR-18.

As imported, the GCA required they only import the 10-rd single stack version. This rifle has been converted to accept the standard double-stack 30rd magazines and even a 100-round drum magazine.

All of the original parts and magazines for the single stack version are included as well as two “wide” mags.

This is a hand-picked 1989 Military Bulgarian Makarov Pistol in Excellent or New  Condition made by Arsenal.  Bought as Excellent, but might be new,  I can’t see any signs that it was fired.  Appears un-issued.

The Makarov has been the Russian pistol since 1949 and is still in use today.    Was originally designed and made in Russia, then East Germany, and then Bulgaria.  The Russian and E. Germany versions are hard to get and very expensive.  The Bulgarian version is supposed to be equal and part compatible with them, unlike the P64, Radon, and other lesser clones that aren’t even compatible.

This has the desired plum hue to the trigger and the original Soviet style handgrips which were removed from many of these for import and replaced with a shabby black grip.  Still has some grease on it from storage.

Comes complete with a black holster with gun cleaning rod and belt lanyard as well as a brown leather holster.  All appear to be new.  Mix and match the holster to match your attire 🙂

Also included is a variety of ammo.  When buying a new gun, I buy a variety of ammo.  Some to break in with, some to test to find what load the gun likes best.

2ea Tula 92gr FMJ, probably the same stuff the Russians used from their own factory
1ea Barnaul Silver Bear 94 grain FMJ
1ea Barnaul Brown Bear 94 grain FMJ
1 ea Sellier & Bellot 95gr FMJ
All 50 rounds per box, 250 rounds total

You can find an ad on SOG for these showing a retail of $595 for the pistol without accessories and ammo.  You can find them used with the black grips for around $300, but why pay $300 for beat up and the for-import black grip?

I don’t know if there are more of these to import or this is from the last batch, I just don’t know, but they aren’t all in this condition, that’s for sure!

The pistol, holsters, and ammo retail for about $680

Zastava Yugo M48 8mm Mauser Package SOLD

Zastava Yugoslavian M48 8mm Rifle with accessories and ammo

Zastava Yugoslavian M48 8mm Rifle with accessories and ammo

Up for sale is a new or like new Zastava M48 carbine.  This is the first version that is all milled before they started adding cheaper, stamped components.  These were made right after WWII and were almost the same as the K98K.  The Zastava factory was taken over by the Nazis in 1941 through 1944.  After the Nazis were conquered, the factory went back to Yugoslavian control and many of the original workers returned.  I also suspect actual K98K carbines were made at Zastava.  Since Yugoslavia didn’t have any major wars, these were mothballed, some never shot.  This was purchased right out of the crate full of cosmolene which was cleaned off.  This particular rifle was likely made in 1950 and stored ever since.  As you can see in the picture, it has a full logo on the receiver and indicates it is the M48 (original) version.

I am including an actual German K98K sling which is well worn, but is the same style as was used on this carbine.  Also including some ammo pouches in good condition and five boxes of 8mm ammo.

This is one of four Mausers up for sale including a 1916 Spanish, 1938 Turkish, and a German K98K.
