  1. I could add one more. They usually have a variety of milsurps in, and have a TON of newer items. In my experience their pricing is high, sometimes very/too high, but they are willing to trade occasionally as well. Check out Franklin Gun Shop, south of Nashville if you haven't already.

  2. I will pop in one of these days as well. Thanks for the tip! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  3. A pretty cool shop here in Cookeville just opened up. The Bunker Militaria. You can check out their website and get a flavor. I would describe it as higher end stuff. And they don't have any Finn rifles (my prime area of interest) or seem to know much about those. But they are cool guys and have some neat stuff. Check em out if you are passing through. And I have toyed with trying to pick up a k31 myself. I hear great things... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. How would you all value a Garand build with a 50s H&R receiver, CMP stock, Criterion barrel, and GI internals? I am looking at one, considering trading for it, and trying to figure out how something like this might compare to a CMP service grade example. I am not looking for an exact price. Just some guidance on how it might compare with a Service Grade M1 assuming both are in similar shape. Lower? Higher? About the same? Thanks! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  5. I guess I have simple tastes. Just traded for one, a Finnish m28/30. Would love to add a Finn marked SVT 40, and a WW2 era Garand. For me, both would likely have to come via trade. Beyond those, a Finn marked Luger, and a Lahti handgun would be at the top of the list. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Help on Selling Guns?

    All good advice here. I can tell you I have used that Advanced search feature on completed auctions many times as a buyer and a seller to try to figure going rates. I would add this however. I find, for at least some items, that the GB average, even if you throw out the high and low prices, still seems a bit higher than normal person to person local values. So, I take the average and decrease it a little, and go from there for a local deal, person to person. If you were auctioning stuff on GB, or if you were a retail establishment, I would just roll with what you see on GB. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  7. So you want to start hunting?

    I'll ask one more about WMAs as I might hunt some this fall. It sounds like all that is needed beyond the normal big game license would be the WMA non quota license, if that particular WMA requires one. But, is there any process for checking in with a ranger or wildlife officer prior? Or are you basically good to go with the license? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I was able to beat the rain this AM and get some range time with these 3. I had not fired 2 of them so it was fun getting acquainted... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Finnish M27 Without a D Stamp

    I should add that it will chamber the small variety of 54r I have on hand, including 203 grain SP. I can't wait to try it out. The bore condition has me really excited. My other M27 has a dark, dirty bore, even after lots of scrubbing, and it still shoots ok. This one is comparable with some of the nicer M39 bores I have seen. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  10. Finnish M27 Without a D Stamp

    Thanks! Some additional photos below. Stock is Finn spliced with rounded fingers. Nose cap is second type. No wings on the bolt or slots in receiver. NEW receiver. Looks like a postwar refurb that was untouched after refurbished. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I posted this on a Mosin forum as well, but thought it might be fun to ask here. I recently traded for a 1934 Tikka M27 that does not have a D stamp on it. In the reading I have done, it sounds like this not that common, but also certainly not unheard of either. I would be curious for the perspectives of those of you who have been doing this for a while how often you have run across this? I have only run across 3 M27s in person in my short time collecting, have acquired all 3, and still have 2/3. Thanks! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

  15. Hey From Cookeville

    Thanks everyone! I look forward to getting acquainted with things here. I am much more of a milsurp person than anything else so many of the topics here may involve me just reading and trying to learn. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
