    My interest is shifting from the modern stuff to the C&R type of weapons. Interested in both collecting and shooting them. I sent off for my C&R 03 about 1 month and hoping it will get here soon. While I'm waiting I've been putting together a list of some weapons I'd like to build a collection with. Any thoughts, opinions, feedback that other C&R collectors have is most welcome and appreciated.

    What? No Russian SVT-40?:)
    You have set high goals grasshopper, may your bank account survive them!:)
    A reality check to scratch your itch,
    A Finn 39, and a M44 to cover the Mosins.
    A Polish TT to cover the TT-33 variants, a Romak will be easier to find and cheaper.
    M-1 Garand is just a must have.
    Swede Mauser for the accuracy.
    That'll keep you busy and broke for awhile.:D

    Great list! However, finding ammo you can afford will make it interesting. Forinstance, the nagant pistol ammo is $490 for 1000 rounds. I know of two sources.
    The m-44 kicks like a Kentucky mule, from what I've heard. My 91/30 kicks pretty good. I don't care, it's fun! Check for ammo prices. I don't want or have 'safe queens'.

    @Trap55 - SVT-40 is a good addition to the list!

    @Iron Eagle - I hear you on the ammo prices, but with 7 rounds in a Nagant I think I could make 1000 rounds last for a "little" while.

    @Joncutt87 - Wasn't the Breda 1927 a Greek assembled weapon with a really strange caliber?

    I'd love to form a Trust and get into Form4 NFA stuff, but that is a tad bit out of my budget. Though I do have my eye on a sweet 1919a4 built out as a semi and complete with a tripod. Been telling the wife I could mount it on top of the Suburban and make a Zombie mobile for her.

    Time to get your C&R license! You could probably add a hi power, springfield trapdoor 45-70 and 1903 or 1903a3, m1 carbine and a russian sks and not be dissapointed

    Flashbang, does the Nagant revolver hold 7 rounds?

    The nagant revolver can be supressed as well due to the cylinder moving to clse the gap when fired. There is a video of it on u tube-pretty cool.

    m95 nagant holds 7 rounds, and will shoot 32 long colt. Some people shoot 32 h&r mags through them too. J&G has some surplus ammo now too for the 7.62 nagant. You can get replacement cylinders for 32 acp also, but I've heard they usually need some handfitting so the timing is right.

    Looks like no one has much interest in U.S. arms, except maybe the M1 Garand.
