Picture A Day – 17 January 2009

I didn’t really get out much today, so I figured I’d post a family collection picture of my small collection of firearms :)

From left to right are my Century M70AB1, Marlin Model 60, Swiss K-31, Hi-Point C9, Steyr M95, M91/30, and M44.

The Century M70AB1 is a semi-auto version of the Yugoslavian AK-47 which uses many parts of an original Yugo AK, but on a U.S. made semi-auto receiver with a U.S. made barrel and several other U.S. parts. The Marlin Model 60 is a semi-auto .22 rifle which I got from Grandpa via Mom and Dad for my 18th birthday. The K31 once belonged to the Swiss Army and is one of two straight-pull bolt action rifles I own. The Hi-Point C9 is a 9mm semi-auto pistol I paid $120 new for at Ace Hardware in Overton, NV and which has been trouble free for over 1600 rounds. The Steyr M95 was the WWI battle rifle of the Austro-Hungarian Army and was used by several countries for non-front line service through WWII. The Mosin Nagant 91/30 as used by Russia in both World Wars. The M-44 served with the Russian Army in WWII.

Each one of these guns has a different history, a different story and a different meaning for me. One thing’s for sure, they sure are fun out in the desert 8)

For more info on the old military guns, head on over to surplusrifle.com :wink:
