    I'll trade you my entire Mosin Nagant Collection for them...hell, I even might let you keep one of the M1As...
















    (I'll throw in a bunch of ammo, accessories and a Nagant Revolver too....)














    Actually, I have been looking longingly at my collection figuring what I could unload it for....because I kinda have a crush on one of those "Scout" M1As I saw in the Rifleman last month....

    I live in Indiana, where are you?

    Thanks for the invite, I would love to get together and shoot sometime. I have a standing invite to shoot with a guy in Valparaiso, but I can never seem to work it out, he's about 4 hours away.

    I have little direct experience with an M1A except for about 10 rounds a guy I used to know who let me shoot through his sweet Camp Perry leg rifle after a DCM match, and about two mags I put through a friends SA NM when we were planning to shoot three gun matches in my IPSC days. In fact I think the leg rifle was a built up M14. He had another one with a special Douglas barrel I think he used for his handloads, in a different type match.

    Most of my high-power matches I shot with a Garand, either one of my clubs NM, or my DCM battle rifle later.

    And while I'm sure I have, I can't for the life of me remember when I shot the carbine.

    But that was in the 80s....

    While I have some DCM match experience, I do NOT consider myself a "rifleman" by any stretch of even my imagination...

    Kdub you are VISCIOUS!

    Like 0pening an old wound.

    Almost as bad as when I was cleaning up in the weeds out back behind an old shed by the garden, about where I put the ex-rototiller...and found one of my old bent racing rims with a Hoosier still mounted on it...

    Now I KNOW it wasn't one of the ones from the set I sold the Garand to buy, they didn't last more than a few races, but my wife was wondering why I was crying again when I came back in the house....

    That decision ranked right up there with putting beer and cigarettes on a credit card....you pay for it forever long after the "commodity" is gone...

    I told my wife long ago to shoot me if I ever tried to sell the '97 or my .45, I guess I shoulda put the Garand on that short list too...




    Fredneck, "Dessicant bags????" That was good...

    Now I finally figured out what I could do with a Carcano if I ever got one...keep the rust off the real rifles.
