Hey guys. Since it's nearing the end of the year I figured I'd kind of show off what I've been able to find over the past year. Granted it isn't much but the stuff I did find was killer at least to me.
1. An all matching, mummed series 11 Nagoya type 99 arisaka in original condition
Hammer drill Vehicle Crane Machine
Musical instrument accessory

2. A no series Koshikawa type 38 arisaka that was captured on Guadalcanal on August 22, 1942
Vehicle Automotive exterior Bumper Hammer drill
Bmx bike Pipe Rim
Furniture Table Shotgun

3. An early type 38 arisaka trainer also captured on Guadalcanal by the same marine as the previous type 38
Vehicle Crane Automotive exterior Bumper Car

4. An all matching and mummed series 4 Nagoya type 99 arisaka with all the original accessories minus the sling
Rifle Gun Trigger Musical instrument Wood
Microphone Monocular Shotgun Metal

There's what I've been able to find traversing the local gun shows and such. Hope you guys like them and please feel free to post your finds from this year as well.

Very nice and interesting pieces, especially with the capture history!

Mine are more general milsurps. I’ve tended recently to go more with the ‘neutral’ countries as they are typically in better condition (typically didn’t go to war) and are usually great shooters.

I almost forgot. I know this isn't quite milsurpy but I did add this to my collection of named USMC uniforms and gear. Uniform named to a Korean War marine who was with the 1st Battalion of the 5th Marine Regiment and fought in the Battle for Outpost Vegas alongside the famous Sgt Reckless.

This has been a slow year for me in milsurps. Seems like I already had most of the ones I found. Ended up with three plus a "sort-of" milsurp:
1944 Springfield Garand
1943 Saginaw SG M1 Carbine
1944 US&S/Ithaca 1911
Polytech M14S (this one is sort-of a milsurp since I can't afford a M-14):(

Firearm Gun Rifle Trigger Air gun

Seems like all the foreign stuff I found were duplicates of ones I already had. I'll buy every wartime Garand/Carbine/1911 I find if the price is right and I can afford it. There's no way to have to many of those.:D
