    Default 2016 SOS show AX 1940 find!

    Well brought this beauty home from the show this week and I'm happy too show this piece off here. Got some help from Bruce with this piece really appreciate him taking some time with me on this rifle. Anyway its #4477 h block and the rifle is all matching. Personally love the reddish glue stock this piece is in, really does look better in person but I will be posting alot of pictures showing this rifle. Only thing that makes me feel bad owning this rifle is I bought this piece off Brock's who has too sell his personal collection due too cancer. Luckily I was able too talk too him a little bit during the show being he was pretty busy. Told him it took me four years too find a nice AX 1940 he replied back too me "took me 20 years now enjoy that rifle as much as I did."

    Enjoyed meeting you, very excited that you got this rifle! Glad that I got to see it! Probably will never hold another.

    It was awesome going through all the rifles and hanging out at his table. There was a college course on 98ks there. You got one of the best.

    Thanks guys but I was not the only one that brought home a nice rifle either. I saw some equally nice pieces that were just as nice or better then mine that many members here that I was glad to meet take home with them. Especially those Canadian's they really took some nice pieces back across the border with them! Hope they show them off later. Anyway I will say this, this AX K98k makes three in my collection now only one piece left too make it 100% complete. The really rare and super scarce AX/AR. I really believe I most likely will not find that rifle matching but you never know. Hell I didn't think I would be bringing back an AX 1940! I truly believe if I was not at the show on Thursday I would have missed this rifle.
