We have all the same stuff except I don't have a Springfield trapdoor yet! What model of Krag is that? Mine is an 1898. Funny thing is that when they issued me my rifle at the sheriff's office I got what appeared to be a never issued M-16A1. I never have fired it on FA in the configuration I got it but I built up all the M-16 parts on a semi auto receiver I have. That's the M-16 clone in my picture.
Mine is an 1898 also.

I usually participate in these threads........and I need suggestions.... I have run out of wall space. I have 8 vertical spaces for 10 guns each......if I space the dowels at 6". Some are already more than that, reducing to 9 guns. A bunch of work to add one gun. I changed the sub-gun section to angles some years ago as I put a 4ft Luger section at the right end of the sub-gun wall. I am now walking over several long guns that I have no place to hang........I have several doubled now, not easy w/bolt handles or other cocking devices protruding on the gun's right side. Contemplating a major redo angling all the guns.........however, I don't like the look of that and I still only get 9 in each row. Picts 1-4, north wall before and after.........this is OK. Other picts. taken around the room. Must be some way to re-arrange, but is escaping me.....suggestions??? (Some of these picts doubled up????)

You ever fire the Johnsons??? I have had one for 20 years, never been off the wall display.

I'm pretty sure I test fired one after I built it but I honestly can't remember now. These are semis in the pics. But I did shoot a FA Johnson at kcr on a Wednesday, one year. I think that one came out of Kent Lomonts estate. I found it to more pleasant to shoot than I expected

That did not help quash my desire for a fa Johnson ……

I should have purchased the Johnson LMG that Robert Segal offered for sale, prior to his passing away.
It was JUST outside of my price range, but a very nice example of the type.
APEX has a lot of the magazines, they came from Springfield Sporters.

Looking at PJH's pictures, I realize they are from years back.
One of the SMG's is now in my safe.
He was kind enough to part with a nice example of a gun I had always wanted to own.

Yes you did, at my friend Dave's farm. Remember the over reamed bbl producing the 30-06 "Improved" casings?? 🤣

My collection is quite modest compared to most pictured here,I have the standard WW2 stuff and some fun stuff but my biggest toy is this, 1943 M2A1 and a home built 57MM AT gun, most of the old times have seen it come up a time or two but I never get tired of showing it off.
