If your interested in surplus firearms apparently they just got in a big batch, although they don't price'm like surplus but hey you might find something you always wanted in the pile...
Some people collect military surplus weapons, such as myself.Those M1 are cool but why buy them for that price right. You can get a really quality AR for that price. If you go up to 2K then you can get a brand new Geissele super duty rifle for that price or just about any other higher end AR.
ppfffttttttt. No it doesn't.An 8-round clip of AP from a Garand will chew a hole through 6 inches of solid masonry that you can drop a grenade through to clear a basement. Takes 100 rounds of 5.56 to do that.
It does seem to have dried up. Back in the early 2000's as in before 2010, I had a C&R license. Nearly every mil-surp rifle you ordered, came with an ammo pouch, sling, cleaning kit and often a bayonet. Prices were awesome. $125 for an "unissued" (really arsenal refinish, most likely) Yugo SKS with all the fixin's, Mosin Nagants for $70 with all the equipment, CZ52 pistols with the holster and lanyard and an extra mag all for just under $100. Now you see those same rifles or pistols sans any equipment only on Gunbroker or at the shows with no equipment at all. You have to buy that stuff all separate, if you can even find it.What about milsurp gear and equipment other than weapons? Last few times I looked that seems to have largely dried up.
