A couple of weeks ago my wife Mrs. Krippp posted pics of a free Type 99 Arisaka that was given to her by an older gentleman who was fond of our collection and restoration efforts. Well today he released a couple of more of his guns to us in the hopes that they will be kept and enjoyed the way they are for future generations. The 2 guns he gave us are a 1900 M96 Swedish 6.5mm Mauser manufactured by Carl Gustav and a gorgeous 1943 Mosin Nagant M91/59. I didn't have alot of time today to take pics of all of them but suffice it to say that they are in remarkable shape for their respective ages. The Gustav is in dire need of cleaning and oiling of the metal, their is no rust present yet but it has been a long time since it was taken out and cleaned properly, which is one of the main reasons he is giving us his collection, he just isn't physically able to shoot and care for these guns the way he feels he needs to and his kids and grandkids just want to either sporterize them or sell them for quick cash. The Swede is missing the brass plate on the stock but he assures us that it is in his gun case at home and he'll bring it to us next wek when he releases the rest of his guns to us. The remaining guns are: 1 M1 Garand that his brother used in Europe in WW2, 1 Chinese SKS-D, His brother's service pistol which he thinks is a Colt 1911 and a Luger that his brother brought back from WW2 and he swears that it has the SS runes stamped on it. I can't begin to describe what an honor it is for him to bestow his trust in us like he has and he absolutely will not accept any form of payment, believe me I've tried to pay him something but he really just loves these guns and wants them cared for properly. Here are a few pics of the Swede with more to come of the rest of them when I get a chance.
