C&Rsenal Thread (with requests and travel plans)

So I'm going to start begging around for who has what old guns and I figured this would be a lot less messy than making a bunch of threads. Obviously let me know of ANYTHING you'd like to donate to the project. I've had a lot of luck with people contributing so far but it seems like I never have the pictures I need when I need them!

Anyway, I'm going to try a few focused requests to see what people have laying around on hand or have spotted in the wild. Whenever I leave town with the light box I'll also update here so people can donate when I'm passing through.

Current requests:
Later war Nambu with wide trigger guard and magazine retaining spring. Would very much help if you're willing to disassemble to compare strikers.
Anything Carcano in original configuration. (except M38's in 6.5 with fixed sights got that. Sporterized wouldn't matter if you have a pre-1912 bolt head to take a picture of)) Not enough info out there for such a common rifle!

Have been busy with moving stuff and haven't been around the board much.

Not sure if they interest you but I have a 1954 Springfield Garand (in an incorrect H&R stock) and a 1954 Russian Tula SKS I could contribute.

I never intended to own them from the same year. I bought them over a decade apart. It was just an interesting co-inky-dink. I'm just thankful circumstances never arose for the two rifles to meet on the field of battle.

Given that it's only two I couldn't make a trip over it but this may be something I need to organize around a shootzenfest.

I can't say for sure just yet but we might make the Florence show next weekend. If anyone has something to show let me know so we can lug the light box if we come (or pester you next time we do)

Articles are backing up for lack of images.

As a time filler, I'm pulling some pistols and rifles to add to the photostream. I've always found it odd that there are rarely/never photos of any of these historical rifles from the shooter's point of view. I'm sure the soldiers found the sights pretty important. So behold, the POV Flickr Set! I'm making it a mission to add a good many more images to this set this week. Gets tricky on long rifles.
