Personal Firearms Instruction


Military Surplus firearms are very interesting and a good value - Most of these firearms are very sturdy and well made like these Finnish and Russian Mosin Nagant rifles shown above.

There are millions and millions of surplus firearms out there that represent historical military service in virtually every country in the world.

Upon first firing a milsurp rifle, you might be surprised at their power and accuracy - Many of these rifles are sighted out to 2000 yards.  They were made of wood and steel - Often assembled and finished by hand

These military Surplus firearms can be found at well-stocked gun stores, gun shows, on-line dealers and possibly your Grandpa's closet.

Before shooting any military surplus firearms it is advisable to have them checked for function and safety by a qualified gunsmith.

There are large quantities of both surplus and newly produced ammunition for these neat old guns and they can make for a real, living historical experience - Whether you collect or shoot them.
