I AM A CRUFFLER!!!

Whee!!
I got my Curio & Relics Federal Firearms License today!

C & R FFL holders are sometimes called 'crufflers' and dat's a mee now!

Now eyeballing all the infantry rifles of Valkyria Chronicles a little more closely, especially if I can nail down a Gewehr 43 in decent condition.
Here's a comparison overlay from a German forum:




Now compare the muzzle end of the anime rifle to the Russian Mosin-Nagant:

(pics at the beginning of that forum thread.)

The groove in the stock back near the trigger also seems inspired by the Mosin.

ANd no, I will NOT paint an original stock to Gallia militia colors ...
