    As each day goes by I appreciate the influence of the Czech firearms industry in history more & more.
    Hey Indy

    I'm getting close to the San Paulo Uprising rifle, the pile is getting smaller. I'm taking every gun down to the last screw, inspecting, cleaning, oiling the putting them back together.

    Here's a picture showing some already completed and placed in the verticle racks, in their temporary home in the master bedroom. The other picture shows part of the remaining long guns in one closet, there's a few more in another then the handguns. The San Paulo Mauser is in this pile. Should be found before weeks end.

    That is an 1894 M91 Mosin Nagant Izhevsk receiver with a Finnish 1927 Tikkakoski stepped barrel, which is one of 3000. The stock is to the left of it. That rifle is being saved for last as the barrel is going to get an oil bath for a few days.

    The lock ring bayonet is refusing to move at this time, so figured an extended oiling should work, if not I'll take the heat gun to it next.

    LOL

    The first gun on the right on the closest rack is a 1944 Nagoya Arsenal Type 99 Arisaka.

    These two racks will be full by tomorrow. Plus there are enough rifles to fill up another 11 position rack and the need for a 4th one. As there are currently 35 long guns in the house.

    Sad part is one of the racks was destroyed so, I'll have to make two more, one to replace the destroyed one and new one to expand into, just to hold what is here currently.

    Opps I gots my rights and lefts messed up, I meant the Short Finn on the left..

    Hey not to interfere with yours rifle racks.. Ever consider using that rifle rod storage
    system for storage.. You can pack in alot and its flexible to allow you place scoped rifles and smaller sized rifles in just the space they need..

    You place the back row of guns close together, The 2nd level, place between the 1st guns, Repeat with third..

    An added advantage is you can turn the guns so the receivers face out, easier to spot the gun you want.. You may have to add a ledge on the floor so each row can lean back a little.. You may have to move about 6 guns to get one in the back.

    Also you can customize your set up to accommodate scopes and really big crew served weapons. and not loose space

    Now if you buy those rods they are like 3 bucks each, but you can make really nice ones for under 1 dollar each.. Now when you get to 300 guns, you will have saved enough for a new gun..

    We'll be building custom gun cabinets, hopefully by this time this year. We're going to convert the garage into the office/gunroom/militaria display room. Wife has already come up with a few designs for them. She loves doing wood work and I just sit back and let her go to town.

    Yeah the pointy things without scabbards (IE Russian rifles) are in the back. The Mausers etc that have scabbards or rifles with no bayonet at present are in the front.

    Yeah the Finn is being a pain, still can't get the bayonet to move, sprayed it with PB Blaster a bit ago. Figured I'd let it soak for a while then and hit it with the heat gun. If it still doesn't move. I'll finish cleaning it and put her back together.
