Китайская копия русской СВД. Norinco NDM-86.
Chinese copy of the Russian SVD, the NDM-86 was available in the traditional 7.62x54R as well as 7.62x51 for the U.S market. The immediate difference between the two is that the 7.62x51 model used a straight boxed magazine. However there was a very rare early variant marked EM-352 which used a curved magazine identical to the SVD but was still chambered in 7.62x51. (GRH)

Финская М39. Вариант Русской винтовки Мосина.
A variant of the Russian Mosin Nagant 91/30, the M39 was Finland’s version of the simple but effective rifle. The major difference though is quality and attention to detail. While the 91/30′s were mass produced quickly, the M39′s were built with a bit more care and precision, along with slight changes while still retaining its identity as a Mosin. If you’ve ever held (or owned both) a 91/30 and M39, you can kind of see why among Mosin collectors the M39 is called the “Cadillac” version. While a standard 91/30 may run you $250~ or less, an M39 is usually around double the price. If it has an artic birch stock with the flame grain, they can hit upwards of $1,000~. (GRH)

Experimental FNA Pistola Automatica da Guerra “Sosso”
Designed by Giulio Sosso in and manufactured by Fabbrica Nazional d’Armi in Brescia, Italy c.1942, serial number 8A.
9mm Parabellum, 21-rounds magazine, holster stock, all steel.
Two interesting features to be noted here. First off, the magazine does not use a simple leaf spring to push a stack of cartridges up, but is in fact a contained metal belt of ammunition indexed with each shot. It is a unique design with arguably little gain in capacity for the extra cost it incurs, and one of the reason Italy did not adopt this design, deep in WW2 as it was. The second feature is a leather holster with a steel rig that doubles as a telescopic stock. Now that’s just plain awesome.
