How can i forget... ofcourse, not a turk mauser though. somehow.. just like those swedish mausers, i don't like them.....

There are many Turk Mauser types that they used ;)  Find one you like, and it should also work for representing Greece.

There is one i like, the 1890 model but it looks exactly the same as the Belgian 1889 mauser :)

Because it is.

Sorts off, there are many small differences. I only want the Belgian one though.

Now that I think of it, I dont have a single USArmy object. Funny.

The argentine M1889 is a direct copy of the Belgian mauser. That will be your best bet

As for myself, i have currently landed on the following collection:

-Mosin nagant M1891/30 rifle. Ishevkh1942
-Mosin nagant M38 carbine. Ishevekh1943
-M1917 Enfield, Remington made, 1918
-M/96 Gevâr Swedish mauser, Carl gustaff Stadsfaktori 1915
-No 1 MKIII*. Ishapore, 1944
-Israeli K98k, FN made .308, 1950
-Chileno mauser M1895, Deutsche Waffen-und-Munition, 1905-1906
-M48a yugo mauser, Preduce 44(later Zastava), 1955
-K31 Schmidt rubin, Bernn waffenfabrik, 1949

I have several rifles wich i want to extend that with. For starters, an M24-47, and eventually i want to have again a No4 MKI lee enfield. And eventually a Ross rifle MkIII*, P14 and Mosin nagant M44 carbine

Once that is achieved, perhaps a Schmidt rubin G11 and K11 and a Gewehr 98 or Kar98AZ or Kar98b.

Gonna take some years to get all this.

Enfield NO4 MK1 restoration is complete! I changed the upper handguard with a grooved one and I relieved the wood shrinkage with a delicious mix of raw linseem oil and turpentine mix with some droplets of chestnut stain. Then I also refinished the magazine and the frontal sight ears with some suncorite and then baked for 3 hours.

Pics tomorrow!

No 5 jungle carbine sights fetch twice the price as origenal sights here, so use that to your advantage, sell the jungle carbine sights, and use that money for no 4 sights and the barrel band.

What year/manufacturer is the No4? So that we can determine what sights you really need (The 300-1500meter sight or the dual flip 300-600 meter sight)

Year of manufacture is weird. It says 1944 but there's a 5 over the 4 like if they had committed a typo. And I rather have the micrometer sights than the flip 300-600 because it places limitations, plus the micrometer default setting is 200 meters. I do need the MK1 forend nose cap but the only place I found it, they are out of stock so if you could link more places for a MK1 nose cap I would be grateful.

I have begun a quest to equip my 10 rifles of bayonets, slings and bandoleers. So far, 3/10 are complete (swedish mauser, K31 & Mosin nagant)
Today i got myself a Chilean mauser Bayonet for 40 euro. Fully serial matched, perfect condition.

Note: that ain' rust, that'be Cosmoline
