The rifles of WWII by JiangYingzi The rifles of WWII by JiangYingzi
So here's a photograph that I actually took. It's my dad's collection of WWII rifles. From top to bottom they are:

M1 Carbine (USA, .30, semi-auto)
M1891 Mosin-Nagant (Russian, 7.62 x 54mm, bolt action)
M1 "Garand" (USA, .30-06, semi-auto)
MAS 36 (French, 7.5 x 54mm, bolt action)
Lee-Enfield Mk IV (British, .303, bolt action)
Mauser K98k (German, 7.92 x 57mm, bolt action)
Arisaka Type 38 (Japanese, 6.5 x 50mm, bolt action)
Carcano M91 (Italian, 6.5 x 52mm, bolt action)

Still working on getting the lighting right, but my dad's den is pretty dark.

Great collection! Are they servicable, that is, do they work?

They are all either serviceable or repairable. I've fired the M1 Carbine, the Garand, the Mauser, and the Carcano. The Carbine, I've gotta say, is sweet to fire and easy to handle. It's so comparatively small caliber, of course.

My father acquired most of these weapons at traveling gun shows. It took him years and a lot of patience to find all of these.
