Probably the #1 gun on my all-time want list is a Winchester 1895 in 7.62x54R (Rimmed Russian).
I like to fantasize about guns that probably fell into the "long lost" abyss, and this is the top of the list.
Do any of y'all ever wonder whatever happened to all of those weapons and gear that the US sent to Chiang kai-Shek that was almost immediately surrendered to the ChiComms as Chiang's army was falling apart? Garands, 1911's, 03A3's, M1917's, etc., etc., etc.
I wonder if there's a huge arms room somewhere in the bowels of a ChiComm installation someplace with thousands of prime examples of our mid-century arms craftsmanship or if they just melted it all down after they captured it.
I like to navel-gaze like that.
