... and for other inferior rifles as well. :D

I was asked to post plans of the racks, so here they are. The whole idea was to design them so that they can be made in the simplest way. No biscuit joints, no dovetails, no tang & groove, just straight cits, screw & glue. Material is oak, dimensions are shown below. It takes me 6-7 hrs (depending on the weather) to build a rack, stain it and put two coats of varnish.

Looking good Nick. I especially like the idea about the pegs being used for bayonets. Very nifty.

...taking up space in her closet!
Yeah, but that's part of the design. The width & depth are 2'x2' - precisely to fit in a closet!

Eventually I lost the battle for the closets. Not to my wife, but to my kids. :(

PS. Did you use my drawings? I posted them here a few years ago.

I have served in the military but have never seen horizontal racks.

As far as "specialized M.95 racks"... I thought it's clear to everyone that the "specialization" was only a joke.
