    Sorry. Can't choose between these models 'cause I like 'em all real well!

    Sorry the '44 1911A1 Remington Rand slipped into the photo. These are all "typewriter guns."

    One of my diseases is the love of military rifles. Here's a couple of pics.

    When I was in junior high at my dad's friend's house we looked at his weird pregnant looking "army rifle". It was original except for a refinished stock. A few years later my dad bought it for $175. Not being into military arms, I sold that old 1941 Johnson .30-06 a couple years after inheriting it. It just did not have the sentimental hook his favorite guns did for me. I gave my wife $1,000 out of what I got for it.

    Here is a very unusual WWII rifle. Some have called it a fake but I have no reason to think it is not real. Consider the time and place and it looks like a departing gift made for a Commanding General. There is enough info on the plaque to figure out who he was and where it was made up when you add in the date of the gun. Why would anyone want to fake a gun like this is beyond me and to a little known General at that. It was an Eastern Front General and it was most likely done for his departure in late 1944. I am guessing limited resources limited them to build it there. The work is a bit rough but well done.

    The barrel, with rear sight and front sling swivel, looks to have been installed from a Type-B or similar sporting rifle. Definitely unconventional. But I like it!

    I have been looking for a Johnson SA Rifle for years and have only seen two I could handle. Of course I'd prefer a USMC hand-me-down but a civilian model would be a great stand in. I'd appreciate seeing some photography of it as well as learning how yours is setup. Years ago I remember seeing an ad for civilian Johnson for sale at $69. I wish I had seen the ad then.
    I agree with you on the Garand, my first was a NM from the DCM in 1957 (I believe) for $98. At the same time I bought two M1903A3 Rifles at $39 each. Those were the days! Foreign military hardware was weeded out in the early 1960s to make room in the safes. Happy New Year. Ed

    Found a few pictures of my Johnson while it was still at thew store. An odd fact about the Johnsons is that the parts are all numbered but not supposed to match. There is actually a record of the first batch without the A prefix and the mismatched numbers are listed for each gun.
