    1. M1911 - I have a Remington 1911R1, which is a quasi-G.I.-not-quite-Series_80, does that count?
    2. Lee-Enfield - Had one. Near perfect condition, Lend-Lease, U.S. Prop marked. Never shot it once. Traded it for a good condition CZ82 to a friend that I liked.
    3. Mosin-Nagant - Have a Carbine length, folding bayonet, version. Gave it to my brother as a gift, then (knowing he doesn't shoot it), years later, I asked to buy it off of him and he gifted it to me.
    4. Nagant M1895 - Have one. Shoots gentle and is accurate. Ammo is expensive. I need to reload. :p
    5. 1903 Springfield - Gads! Don't I wish! Have you seen how much those things go for?!?!

    Peace favor your sword,

    1. M1911 - got a bunch of 'em
    2. Lee-Enfield - been looking for a nice one, leaning towards a Jungle Carbine
    3. Mosin-Nagant - got a bunch of 'em ( 91/30, M38, M44, M59, etc.)
    4. Nagant M1895 - Got a bunch of 'em, even have one threaded for a suppressor
    5. 1903 Springfield - Got an all original 1903A4 all matching #'s

  4. I'd include the Remington 1911R1. The 1911 is the reason I didn't put this in the C&R section.

    No I have no idea how much an '03 Springfield goes for. It wouldn't fit into what I collect.

  5. I had a Jungle Carbine as my 1st deer rifle.

    I've shot a 1917 Colt 1911 that got a nickel finish at some point in its life.
    Showed the owner how to shoot it but she wouldn't sell it to me.

    And I've got a Lithgow Lee Enfield '41 but it's technically the WW1 design as the model was never upgraded because they couldn't get the new machinery to Australia.

    So no, none of them ;)

    1911, mine is the 1911, not the 1911A1
    Lee Enfield, bought it at a department store for $49 IIRC, a long time ago.
    Mosin, does a T53 count?
    Nagant, never even held one.
    1903, Got to shoot it, but it's not mine. Don't know if my brother or I will end up with it.

    Own 3, shot the 1903, no contact with the revolver.
  16. I hate lists like that because all they do is increase the size of my 'Wish List'.

    1911 - Got one, could be talked into buying another if the price is right
    Lee Enfield - Possible addition to the wish list, definitely will if the price is right
    Mosin Nagant- Already on the list
    Nagant revolver - Not my cup of tea but if I found one and the price was right
    Springfield 1903 - Already on the list.

    Peace favor your sword,
  18. 1911 - Got one, would buy another if I find a good deal.
    Lee Enfield - Not even on my radar
    Mosin Nagant- Yup got a few :)
    Nagant revolver - Yup, had to have it to keep the Mosins company. Plus I got it for $75. :D
    Springfield 1903 - Another one not even on my radar.

    1911: Springfield Armory with gunsmith upgrades

    Mosin Nagant: Two--One original with laminated stock and the other in an Archangel stock with original furniture still in possession

    Enfield: Ishapore MkIII, 2a in a sporter stock--I was stupid and didn't keep the original furniture when I got it years ago.
