I was asking the caliber because I heard that 7,92 cartridges are very hard to find and at a high price. And also all the Mauser rifle for sale in western countries (France) seem to be modified to use 8mm.

What do you mean by “My byf is 8x57 mm caliber.”?

You mean 1996 not 1986 because in Ceausescu’s era was impossible to own legally a gun.

Do you have any demilitarized weapons?

Is there any gun shop in Romania where could I buy a WWII type weapon?

PS Hope I am not to annoying with my probably stupid questions.

Mihnea , in France the so called "military cartridges" are banned for civilians. But they are using another "civilian" cartridge in the same caliber. That means that a civilian need to modify the cartridge chamber in order to use legally a Kar98.That means extra money for conversion and a lack of "historical" accuracy of the item. But is more than nothing
When I said "my byf..." I used a sort of "slang" between Kar98 collectors, using the german codes. byf is the Mauser factory code. My brother, for example, have a S/147 (J P Sauer factory), a friend have a dot (Ceska Zbrojovka), But all are Kar98.
The year I started collect was 1986.It was possible, even in that time to collect, but,allmost nobody oficially asked!
My guns are NO demil
There is no specialized shops in Romania for ww2 military weapons, you need to find private owners to buy,intermediate by a gunshop, or buy outside Romania.
The 8x57 ammo is not hard to find in Romania, because is used for hunting.The price is a little bit high, arround 5 RON/cartridge.
And your questions are not stupid.I had the same questions years ago! :D

Very interesting collection indeed, I am amazed of what you got there especially the Steyer, Mauser C96, Beretta, and Luger pistols and the MP40.

No need to ask my question about the byf I get the idea. I think you could still add a repro butt (the wood part) or even an original one, with all the accessories to that hunting rifle without modifying the barrel and trigger mechanism.
Can I buy such a rifle in Bucharest?

The MP40, the other pistols and the revolvers are in working condition (can you fire with them)?

Thank you in advance for the answers.

Edited: I have written this post before seeing yours, sorry.

You can start searching for a Kar 98 in Bucarest (you need a good advice! :D ),but you need to be over 18YO.
Some of my guns are not safe to fire due the age,but some are.All are unalterred But the law give me permission to own ammo only for one long gun, on my choice.I owm ammo also for my hunting guns.

I think it is a revolver from the Independence War (1877) but I don't now the exact type.

PS I am over 18 years old.

Wow that’s amazing until now every body I have spoken to told me it was impossible to own a gun legally before ’89. But everybody was talking probably from what they heard from somebody else and in fact very few, your example, know the real law.

Well what can I say more… congratulations.

Is that a real WWI flag or a reproduction?

The infantry colour is a copy, because all real colours and standards are in the museums. The colour tissue is of M. 1924 pattern (it bears the 1923 Romanian Kingdom coat of arms) and was not really carried during WWI. In 1916-18, Romanian troops had M.1902 or M.1915 colours and standards.
The reenactment group took this colour in a hurry in order to strengthen the Romanian military presence on Komarom WW1 show.

Thanks for the reply. Do you have a better photo of the flag to see some details?

Another photo (unfortunately of low quality) of the Military Museum's "Open Gates", on the first day (7th of May 2005) commemorating the soldiers who died during WW2. In the fore ground is Professor Adrian Silvan Ionescu, commander of the reenacting group of the 6th Dorobanti Regiment.
