Any gun donors in Greenville this weekend?

Suzie and I are bringing the big light box up from Charleston with us to photograph a family friend's collection.

Does anyone else have a collection of older military rifles that would like to "donate" them to the C&Rsenal.com image bank while we're in town this weekend?

I'm in Charleston and wouldn't mind you coming to photograph my stuff upon your return sometime.

Lots of Mausers from around the world and other cool C&R rifles/pistols.
 
I have a few if you'd be interested. Nothing super rare but several variations of Finnish mosin nagants, a Swiss, Steyr and Budapest M95's, and a Turk Mauser. Let me know if any interest you. James. :)

Anything is welcome. It helps to have a few things in one place just for the sake of the setup time involved but we have some lofty goals for the site. Images rights are the biggest hump for these kinds of projects so we're working hard to take all of our own. While I won't rule out big collections, it's also really nice to piecemeal a site together with local collectors in an organic way that resembles the way people collect.

Just email us a list of what you'd like to offer up with your phone number and when we could call you this week about it.
[email protected] would be fine.

We have a rolling light box built (60" long in order to handle the big rifles) and just need a single outlet and somewhere out of direct sunlight.

We really want to get into doing complete part breakdowns for things like 1911s and K98ks, etc. to help fight some of this collector fraud.

We're interested in firearms from 1900 until the 1950's at this point in the project. We'll take anything we can get. Just get your buddy to take a look at the website and let us know if he wants to donate. We're hoping to have people come to us so that we don't look like salesmen. People can get pretty private about firearms and I'd hate to step on that.


Thanks to SmokinTurkey for hosting us for an afternoon!
Some of his rifles and others can be seen at our Flickr Pool:

Does it have to stop at 1900? I have quite a few older than that however I have a few in the range too.

Post 1900 production. So something like a Mauser 98 or a C96 pistol which was produced primarily after 1900 obviously counts. We're turning equipment that was done being manufactured before 1900 because its antique status puts it out of the C&R range. We may go back and include these later if the site keeps going and growing but for now it's too much to chew. We'll also probably do commercial at some point but again, for now, it's too broad a focus. We're cutting our teeth on 1900-1960 military firearms.

That's cool. Like I said I do have some in that range to IE: WWII bring back Mauser, Spanish Mauser picked up off a battlefield in Cuba, A 03 Springfield with a experimental sight my great uncle developed and the military tested along with a couple Enfields and a few pistols.

That's great guys! Thanks for the offers.

I've been fighting a cold this week but I'm hoping to drag my buns out of bed and get to the Ladson show. I'll have some free time starting a week from today to take more pictures locally.

I'm also considering what it would take to run the light box at Shootzen the project would be welcome. Combo of keeping sunlight out and and providing power from the car engine sorta problem.

How bout using a generator to run your light box? Seems like Shootzen would be a "target rich environment" for you to get some good photos...(pun intended.) BTW my offer is still out there to come snap photos of mine when you get back on your feet...Jeff (ReefShark.)

Thanks, I've been feeling pretty good this afternoon so I'm getting the heck out of the house tomorrow morning. I hate being stuck inside for too long.

I have work/appointments through Wednesday but after that I'll know where I'm standing. I'll get a PM over to you after that Reef. We'd be excited to grab some shots locally!

Instead of making a series of threads for when I'm traveling or looking for specific guns I've started one C&Rsenal thread for anyone that wants to help out.
viewtopic.php?f=30&t=3470

Reef, could you PM me your availability starting from this Thursday?

Thanks guys and gals!
