  6. (The following description is from Apache Arms website from whom I acquired this beautiful piece of history) “This 1975 dated rifle was produced by Izhmash in the Soviet Union for military use. These early production guns can be identified by the lightening cuts in the sides of the receiver. The Russians did away with the lightening cuts in the early '90's (they are not present on the KBI rifles) in order to streamline the production of different calibers. This rifle also features the early style scope with an infrared filter. The IR filter was done away with in the late 1970's or early 1980's as advancements in night vision technology made the filter obsolete. Another unique feature of these early SVD's is the attention to detail each rifle was given. These early rifles were not stamped out on an assembly line in large numbers (serial number on this one is very low, 237). Much hand assembly and hard work went into each rifle and the original serial numbers and date were all hand engraved, as you can see in the pictures below. After leaving the factory the rifle was likely shipped to a unit, at the height of the Cold War, and put to use by soldiers practicing to go to war with the United States or Afghanistan. From there it is not known what journey this rifle took but it was surely a fascinating one. It's very possible that it was used in the Soviet's Afghan war, or possibly made its way to Panama or Grenada to be captured there by US forces. However it travelled, it travelled well as it's in excellent condition, well above what you would expect from a rifle with this much history. The finish is very strong and looks better than most guy's deer rifles or safe-stored collection pieces. The rifle probably spent most of it's time in a case or possibly was left in the arms room. It was definitely well cared for. At some point an arms room likely either replaced some parts or parts were swapped by soldier's while cleaning weapons, which is a common occurrence in the military. The numbers on the receiver, gas system, rear sight leaf, and trigger group all match with 237, the bolt is 27954, the bolt carrier is 34157, and the safety lever and top cover match with 41096. The rifle has been gauged for headspace and is exactly where it should be, not needing a field gauge at all. The rifle came into the country sometime in the late 1980's and has been in a private collection ever since. Now someone has the chance to own a true piece of history. The rifle is displayed in a custom made case with a hinged front for easy access. The rifle will be shipped in a Pelican 1750 pressure-sealed hard case with foam custom cut for the rifle, or the buyer can pickup in person. Private viewing of the rifle can also be arranged. Rifle also comes with a letter from the ATF which states that it is perfectly legal to own a rifle of this age without import markings. This is a modern, functioning firearm and must be shipped to a license holder, where it then can be transferred to anyone (there are no special licenses [ATF tax] or requirements to own this rifle). Rifle can ship directly to either a standard FFL holder or a Curio and Relic firearms license holder. U.S. buyers only. This is one of only a handful of these rifles in the country and is truly a museum-quality item. Never more true is my phrase that this rifle is a valuable investment, a great collector's piece, and a very fun gun to shoot. This is something that can be passed on to the children but can also be taken out to the range every once in awhile where it's guaranteed to be the center of attention. Don't miss out on this truly once in a lifetime opportunity.” See https://www.apachearms.us/dragunovs-for-sale/.

The M1941 competed unsuccessfully with the U.S. M1 Rifle. [edit] Senator Morris Sheppard, left, Chairman of the Senate Military Affairs Committee, Maj. Gen. George A. Lynch, U.S. Chief of Infantry, and Senator A.B. Chandler of Kentucky, inspect the M1941 semi-automatic rifle which competed to replace the M1 gas-operated rifle as the Army's standard shoulder weapon. The M1941 rifle used the energy from recoil to cycle the rifle. As the bullet and propellant gases move down the barrel, they impart force on the bolt head which is locked to the barrel. The barrel, together with the bolt, moves a short distance rearward until the bullet leaves the barrel and pressure in the bore drops to safe levels. The barrel then stops against a shoulder allowing the bolt carrier to continue rearward under the momentum imparted by the initial recoil stage. The rotating bolt, with eight locking lugs, would then unlock from the chamber as cam arrangement rotates and unlocks the bolt to continue the operating cycle. The Johnson rifle utilized a two-piece stock and a unique 10-round rotary magazine, designed to use the same 5-round stripper clips already in use by the M1903 Rifle. This system had some advantages in comparison to the M1 Garand rifle, such as a greater magazine capacity combined with the ability to recharge the magazine with ammunition (using 5-round clips or individually) at any time, even with the bolt closed on a chambered round. Finally; that the Johnson rifle did not—unlike the M1 Rifle—eject an en bloc clip upon firing the last round in the magazine, was considered an advantage by some soldiers. A widely-held belief among US soldiers in 1952, 27% of soldiers held the opinion that the M1 Garand's distinctive clip ejection sound, the well-known "M1 Ping", presented a danger when fighting an enemy force, as the sound purportedly signaled to the enemy that the solder's M1 Rifle was empty and they could no longer fire in defense. Unfortunately, despite the several advantages the Johnson Rifle design had over the M1 Garand rifle, the existing disadvantages were too great to change US rifle production from the M1 Garand. The Johnson's short recoil reciprocating barrel mechanism resulted in excessive vertical shot dispersion that was never fully cured during its production life, and was prone to malfunction when a bayonet was attached to the reciprocating barrel (short recoil weapons require specific barrel weights to cycle correctly). Additionally, the complex movements of the barrel required for proper operation would be subject to unacceptable stress upon a bayonet thrust into a target. The Johnson also employed a number of small parts that were easily lost during field stripping. Partially because of lack of development, the M1941 was less rugged and reliable than the M1, though this was a matter of personal preference and was not universally opined among those that had used both weapons in combat. As was Johnson's practice, he gave all of his weapons a "pet" nickname. Johnson christened his semi-automatic rifle Betsy and the Light Machine Gun Emma. Melvin Johnson continued to develop small arms. He worked with ArmaLite and Colt's Manufacturing Company as an advocate for the AR-15. The AR-15 used a similar bolt design to the M1941 Johnson. Soldiers of the Royal Netherlands East Indies Army in July 1945. The soldier on the right carries a Johnson rifle.Melvin Johnson campaigned heavily for the adoption of the Johnson rifle by the U.S. Army and other service branches. However, after limited testing, the U.S. Army rejected Johnson's rifle in favor of the M1 Garand rifle developed by Springfield Armory. Despite repeated requests by the Marine Corps to adopt the rifle, the Johnson rifle lacked the support of US Army Ordnance, which had already invested considerable sums in the development of the M1 Garand and its revised gas operating system, then just going into full production. Johnson was successful in selling small quantities of the M1941 Johnson Light Machine Gun to the U.S. armed forces, and this weapon was later used by both Paramarines and the Army's First Special Service Force. Post WW2 years were not kind to the Johnson organisation. The entity filed for bankruptcy and was liquidated in early 1949. The Johnson rifle was also used in the 1961 Bay of Pigs invasion by the anti-Castro Brigade 2506. Because it was produced in relatively small quantities the Johnson rifle has become a highly sought-after collectible by World War II collectors looking to complete their collections.

  12. A beautiful piece of history. Developed and introduced in 1917, the 30-06 cal Browning Automatic Rifle is regarded as one of the best shoulder-fired automatic weapons of World War I. By original conception, the BAR was to be used by actively maneuvering infantry units, allowing them to provide their own suppressing fire while advancing across no-man's-land and still be capable of aimed single shots. American infantry doctrine did not embrace the "marching fire" concept, instead focusing on the "squad automatic" concept, favoring man-portable weapons firing from fixed positions in support of defense and maneuver, with later variants of the BAR, the 1918A1 and A2, adjusted to better accommodate this style of combat. A relative late-comer for World War I, the BAR made a good impression on users and allies. Retained in government arsenals following the war, the BAR remained a gold standard of small arms firepower, while also gaining infamy for it's desirability to criminals; famous outlaws Clyde Barrow and Bonnie Parker were among those who raided government stocks for the BAR and used them to great effect in altercations with the police. On entering World War II, the BAR was America's prime light machine gun, and BAR gunners were a key source of firepower for Army and Marine units. While eventually retired in favor of weapons designed explicitly for the Squad Automatic rifle, the BAR served with dignity for many decades, seeing U.S. use as late as the Korean War. Blade front and folding ladder rear sights, with a plain tubular flash hider threaded to the muzzle, "18" dated barrel, and "eagle head" and "flaming bomb" proofs on some components. The top of the receiver bears the 5-line Winchester nomenclature, with the early "F A S" pattern (semi/full/safe) selector mechanism with the spring loaded catch to keep the operator from accidentally putting the rifle on "SAFE" when switching to full-auto operation. Fitted with a deeply checkered forearm and a smooth pistol grip stock. Included with the lot are 3 magazines, original 1918 cupped ammo belt, BAR oiler and magazine loader. Very good condition. The rifle has been completely reworked by Stan Andrewski and functions flawlessly. The forearm bears a hairline crack and a safe ding on its right side. The stock is in excellent shape without any repairs. Mechanically excellent condition with original internal components bearing a “W” proof mark as shown in the attached photos.
