Fuck Sports

I fucking hate sporterized rifles so much.
I want to take every boomer that ever thought to mangle a perfectly good service rifle, put them all in a blender, and let it run until they're a consistency of fine mist.

    FTFY; most of these were probably done by the Greatest Generation.

    blame the US military. there were length limitations on packages the troops could send home, and an unaltered service rifle wouldn't fit. if you took it apart the barreled action would fit, but the stock was still too long unless you cut the forearm off at the first barrel band, at which point you've done the damage and may as well keep going. my granddad killed quite a few deer with the radom and brno mausers he sent back to grandma, though he never bubba'ed them past the initial stock cut.

      i have sporterized type 38 that looks fucking mint, someone clearly loved that rifle except for the fact that its cut and defaced. i know they can still be perfectly capable of doing their jobs, its just a crying shame.
      and some of these boomers really take it to the next step to deface proof marks

        it may have been defaced before the boomer got it. japan ordered their troops to remove the imperial chrysanthemum from their arisaka's before turning them in, and most argentine mausers had the crest ground off before they were sold.

          you're right, i know they tried to scrub mums off before they were turned in, they weren't sporting them out though.
          the quality of sporterized rifles certainly varies with who did the job and how much the owner cared about it.
          some do such a good job that its baffling why they didnt just spend the same money on a new rifle to serve the same purpose

            they did the labor themselves, for "free", rather than paying someone to do it.

              No there are a ton of "factory" sporterizations.
              Many of these rifles would likely have been sold as metal had they not been sporterized

                Oh sure, those existed too, but that's clearly not what the person I was replying to was talking about.

      People would perform the infamous "duffle cut" to shorten stocks but they generally tried their best to hide the damage by placing the cut under a band.
      The main motivation for sporterizing went like this:
      >I really want a durr rifle but those new Winchesters and Remingtons sure are expensive
      >I can buy a surp rifle out of a barrel at the local hardware store for chump change
      >Huh, this army rifle is really heavy and has a lot of extra crap on it I don't need
      >Good thing it was cheap and already beat up, I don't really feel bad about cutting it down.

      You realize that in 50 years autists will say the same thing about the plethora of sport rifles and shotguns nowadays.

      >Dude, is that what I think it is? Holy shit
      >Yeah man, first edition Glock. These are rare as shit now
      >Too bad some fucktard stippled the grip and changed out the trigger
      >Yeah I know, I only paid $22k for this one, but it would have been 50k easy if it was all mint

    I'm inclined to agree with you, having seen a lot of awful, half assed hackjobs.
    The SKS in a tapco stock of their era.
    But a sporterized rifle can look and feel good. I wouldn't be ashamed to give a good home to a well executed example.
    Especially with a mannlicher stock.
    Though preferably without the gauche cheek rest

        That's genuinely what I was looking for. That exact image. That's a nice sporter i felt like the one I posted was a half-hearted rendition of the idea.

        It's charming in a way. The damage ia done and when it's not some lazy hackjob it has a sort of puckish charm.
        Makes you think of the man who bought it at a hardware store and sawed on it in the first place.
        Makes me remember a mauser HSC I wish I bought that had been vulgarly nickle plated. I really regret not getting it.
        Nazi eagle stamps drowning in nickle.
        To imagine a time when you'd so something so stupid.

    Sorry child, the world doesn't owe you cheap unfucked-with surplus firearms.
    Prior to you CODfags, milsurp was just considered a cheap way for those you call the poors to put food on their table.

        Instead of being upset over a time thats come and gone, you should be looking for the good deals available today.

          Yes there was if they were being sold from military inventories. From the 1968 GCA to the 1986 FOPA.
