German HK G11 Breech & Barrel Assembly. This gun contains over 440 parts. https://www.guns.com/news/2018/11/27/if-you-thought-the-hk-g11-was-weird-wait-till-you-see-what-it-looks-like-on-the-inside-videos
The HK G11 is so exotic and complex, its internal workings have been described as amounting to “space magic.”

German gun giant Heckler & Koch worked on the innovative G11 platform throughout the 1970s and 80s in an effort to produce the West German army’s newest infantry rifle. Later proposed as part of the U.S. Army’s Advanced Combat Rifle program, the prototype used a complicated gas-operated rotary breech system to fire 4.7mm caseless ammunition at a blistering 2,100 rounds-per-minute when set to three-round burst.

The ACR program and its follow-on but equally ill-fated Objective Infantry Combat Weapon descendant burned through $300 million without producing a replacement for the military’s standard 5.56mm-chambered M16/M4 series rifles.

WW2 US Navy KA-BAR Diving Knife Leather Handle
This is a very rare WWII era US Navy diving knife made by KA-BAR. This knife has a stacked leather grip. This appears to be very uncommon and is not referenced and may have been a special order or theatre made alteration as they were issued with turned wood handles. The knife measures 13 inches overall and has the standard 6 7/8 inch blade. This blade has the saw teeth on one side and straight blade on the other with the metal still factory bright with some carbon staining and minor surface abrasion visible. The ricasso is marked “KA-BAR REG U.S. PAT.OFF.” and “Union Cutlery CO. Olean N.Y.” on the reverse. The threaded bronze guard is in good condition showing dried grease between the threads and small impact marks on the outer surface. There is slight lateral movement of the guard caused from the shrinking of the leather handle which appears in good condition with some minor handling marks. The bronze pommel cap has some surface dings and shows rough edges from surface impacts. The bronze scabbard is in good condition with scattered scratches and surface dings and impact marks on the upper lip with an overall aged, uncleaned bronze patina. The interior surface is very good with only trace amounts of Verdigris. The knife screws easily into the scabbard. https://www.joesalter.com/category/products/WW2-US-Navy-KA-BAR-Diving-Knife-Leather-Handle

  FG-42 German Paratroop Rifle (transferable) https://youtu.be/RbxRKXKht3Y
The undisputed star of the upcoming Rock Island Premier auction is this transferable full-auto German FG-42 paratrooper's rifle. Only a few dozen of these are in private hands in the US, and they are an extremely advanced design for WWII. Hammer price for this rifle at auction was a phenomenal $260,000.

  Fallschirmjager FG-42 Rifle https://youtu.be/KdaUPUZXdSM
The German FG-42 paratroop rifle was a very impressive design, managing to meet a very strict set of performance criteria. The first production model in particular was exceptionally light and compact, while still offering semi and full-auto 8mm Mauser fire with surprisingly light recoil. The gun went through a continuous evolution through its production, becoming heavier and less expensive to manufacture. The first major design was made from a milled billet of steel at great cost, and the second major model was done with a stamped steel receiver instead. We had the opportunity to disassemble one of the second model FG42s, and put together a video showing how it operates.

You can read more on the development of the gun over on the FG-42 page in the Vault, where we also have a gallery of detailed photos:

  Full-Auto FG-42: An Original 2nd Pattern at the Range https://youtu.be/XouWRwFPMvU
The FG-42 is a tremendously hyped rifle, but very few people have ever had a chance to actually shoot an original one (including me, until today). It was a rifle intended to take on the roles of both infantry rifle and light machine gun gun for the German Fallschirmjager. The M14 was supposed to do the same thing, and was neigh uncontrollable. So the question is, was the FG-42 a better design, or did its reputation simply come from the mystique of a very rare gun?

Well, in my opinion the praise is entirely justified. This was one of the most controllable and pleasant-shooting full power select-fire rifles I have ever shot. It is absolutely far better than the M14, and better than the AR-10 as well and also the G3 in its stock form. The FAL is a closer competitor, but in my opinion still outclassed by the Fallshirmjagergewehr. The FG was expensive and not as durable as its later competitors, but it truly is a very impressive piece of engineering. This particular one is going up for sale at the Morphy auction company (which acquired the James D Julia firearms auction a few months ago), and I hope the new owner enjoys it as much as I did!

  Pre-Production FG-42 (Type C) https://youtu.be/729grX9SIMQ
Thanks to the generosity of a collector in the Association of Maltese Arms Collectors and Shooters, we have a chance today to take a look at a pre-production FG-42, serial number 015. This is one of the guns manufactured by Rheinmetall (the series production would be handed over to Krieghoff) in between the Type A and B prototypes and the Type D troops trials guns. Its provenance is well documented, being previously owned by noted Dutch collector Henk Visser, who received it as a gift form the Rheinmetall factory museum, where it had been since the end of the war.

The gun shows a few minor variations from the standard "first pattern" (aka Type E) FG-42, including a split pin to attach the trigger group and more notably, a completely different type of rear sight. It also, exhibits a modified French MAS-36 bayonet, proving the lineage in that design element (not that there was really any doubt...). In our video, we will discuss the early development of the FG42, and where this rifle is situated in that story!

  The Korsac EM1 - a British/Polish Bullpup FG-42 https://youtu.be/A8ygMDJQ0iY
Armament Research Services (ARES) is a specialist technical intelligence consultancy, offering expertise and analysis to a range of government and non-government entities in the arms and munitions field. For detailed photos of the guns in this video, don't miss the ARES companion blog post:

http://armamentresearch.com/british-korsac-e-m-1-light-machine-gun/

The Korsac EM-1 (not to be confused with the Thorpe EM-1, which is a completely different rifle) was a bullpup light machine gun based on captured examples of the German FG-42 patatroop rifle. It was developed between 1945 and 1947 by a team led by Polish refugee designer named Korsac.

It was chambered for the 8mm Mauser cartridge, and used an 18 round magazine adapted from the ZB-26. The operating mechanism was closely copied form the FG-42, as were many elements of the rifle's controls, including the capability for firing from an open bolt in fully automatic and from a closed bolt in semiautomatic. Unlike the FG-42, it used a short stroke tappet type gas piston, and had a detachable barrel. Ultimately only two examples were built, and only one of those (the one in this video) was completed to firing condition. It suffered from reliability problems in semiautomatic mode, and was quickly sidelined in favor of the other development projects ongoing by 1947. However, many lessons from its development would be put into the EM-2 rifle.

British Korsak E.M.1 light machine gun
This experimental British light machine gun or automatic rifle was developed from 1945 – 1947 under the auspices of the British Armament Design Establishment (ADE), based at the former Royal Small Arms Factory Enfield in North London. It was therefore the first true Enfield bullpup firearm, but is poorly understood today. This is not helped by the baffling duplication of ‘EM’, or ‘Experimental Model’, designations by ADE (see ‘A Note on Nomenclature’, below). This leads to confusion with the later E.M.1 assault rifle (which we will cover in the next video/article in this series – Ed.). The original E.M.1 was designed by Roman Korsak (frequently rendered ‘Korsac’) alongside a 7.92 x 33 mm assault rifle designed by Jeziorański (often misspelled as ‘Jesieranski’ or ‘Jeziorenski’, including in official documents of the period); the first British weapon to be designated E.M.2 and not to be confused with the more famous Janson E.M.2.

Korsak was a Polish refugee; one of a number of Belgian, Czech, and Polish weapons designers – including Jeziorański and Janson; the latter’s birth name being Januszewski – who had come to Britain to escape the Nazi regime. There had been a lack of small arms and light weapon expertise in the country prior to the war, and these immigrants helped to fill that gap (see Ford, p.129). Korsak was one of those who chose to stay on in the UK after the end of the war, and became head (CEAD or Chief Engineer & Superintendent of Armaments Design) of a design team based at Cheshunt in Hertfordshire. Janson would later succeed him in this role, and Janson’s rifle would come to the forefront of British small arms design.

Maschinen Fabrik Augsburg – Nurnberg “MAN” manufactured 1917 dated Maxim 08/15 machine gun with matching parts throughout, including but not limited to the feed block, bolt, barrel, drum hanger stock . Visible numbers match everywhere. “EWD” marking on right side of buttstock indicates "Ein Wohner Wehr Bayern" which was an armed residents unit based in Munich in the Pre-Nazi days. A number of original WW1 Maxim 08/15's were retained in Germany under the terms of the treaty of Versailles, and some, like this one were in the hands of a quasi-official armed civilian organizations. Later, when the Nazi's came to power, this gun was collected up and "updated" as you see here. Special Weimer retrofit drain spout cover which is a simple plug which locks into place. The water fill cap retains its original wood thumb pieces. Gun comes with numerous accessories including “The Devil’s Paintbrush” book signed by Dolf Goldsmith, Original Nazi “battle-pack” of 300 rounds of steel cased 8mm ammunition, original belt drum hanger, reproduction leather and cloth sling, camouflaged painted bipod, one metal ammo can with Turkish maxim brass-tabbed cloth belt with 8mm Portugese, Berdan primed non-corrosive ammunition. Also included is a rare late war style drum box with two original WW1 German 08/15 Maxim assault drums. Also included is an original German WW1 water can with “swing-out” spout, and what is almost certainly the condensing hose tip captured with this gun as it has the special fitting at the end for this Weimar era retrofit drain plug. Original anti-aircraft rear sight is included attached to the right side of the receiver. Exceptionally rare parts on this gun include the feed block with a switch which allows the firer to utilize either cloth belts or MG34 belts, and the even rarer forward bipod attachment ring which fits between the muzzle booster and nose of water jacket. One also immediately notices drain valve positioned at the bottom of the water 17” forward on the trunnion. Also included is an extremely rare original leather cover for the pistol grip. CONDITION: Overall appearance and finish is extremely fine to near excellent original Weimar era deep blue refinish on all metal parts except for the bipod, which although almost certainly was not captured with this gun, it was what the consignor had, and does exhibit an interesting camouflage paint with scattered corrosion at the exposed points. Walnut stock and pistol-grip handle show light handling marks, bruises and scratches, but remain string and serviceable. Buttstock has a 4” long crack on right side running parallel to the bore line. Drum box is extremely fine, as are drums within, both of which retain their original paint. Steam condensing hose is black rubber, still soft and pliable which indicates it is a replacement, but from long ago undoubtedly. Bore near excellent, shiny and bright. Bolt is also near excellent. Mechanics are crisp. This is an exceptional gun and an example of an exceedingly rare model, which was only fielded for a very short time before the MG-34 replaced it as soon as this newer model machine gun became available. Returning G.I.’s were obviously more attracted to the more modern machine gun designs they encountered. As to how many of this specimens particular configuration survived the war, in a completely matching numbers state, were brought back to the United States, and subsequently registered for private ownership, this cataloger would like hear some input, but probably fewer than can be counted on the fingers of one hand if even that many. Offered for the most discerning and advanced Maxim and WW1 collector, and/or shrewd investor, a chance not likely to be repeated to own what is likely the very best specimen of its kind.

  The MG 08/15 Updated Between the Wars https://youtu.be/XUr-BOlOelM
In the aftermath of World War One, the Treaty of Versailles strictly limited the number of machine guns that the German military could keep in inventory. The main type that the Germans chose to keep was the MG08/15 (although a substantial number of MG08 guns were kept as well). Through the 1920s and 1930s, these Maxim guns were improved and updated in a variety of ways until finally replaced by the MG34 starting in 1936. Many of these updated 08/15s would be deployed in reserve areas during World War Two, but relatively few survive today. Today we are looking at one such gun, and noting the changes made to it compared to the 08/15 of World War One. Specifically:

* Anti-aircraft sights and mounting brackets
* Oiler bottle in the stock
* Bipod attachment at the muzzle
* New water drain and fill plugs
* Modified drum hanger bracket
* Feed block for both cloth Maxim belts and metal MG34 belts
* Leather pistol grip cover
* Top cover locking latch

Extremely attractive and eye-catching German WW2 MG34 manufactured in 1941 by “dfb” (Gustloff) with eagle over “4” proofs on various locations including top and sides of receiver. Visible numbers appear matching on shroud, top cover “bpr” (Grossfuss), receiver, and buffer. Feed tray exhibits both original “4228” and renumber “1379” on left side. Handgrip is numbered “21”. Extremely rare and desirable steel-capped toe and heel buttstock and buffer cup are number 2938 with exquisite eagle over “63” on left side indicating Waffenwerke Brunn manufacture. Three original Nazi marked barrels are included, none of which match gun’s SN. CONDITION: Overall appearance and finish is near extremely fine refinish over very light pitting. Buffer also refinished but not buttstock hardware. Bakelite butt has some small dings and handling marks but is one of the best ever encountered. Bores of all three barrels are near excellent, shiny and bright. Bolt appears to be an un-numbered armorers replacement and is extremely fine. Mechanics are crisp. This is a select-fire machine gun. An incredibly attractive MG-34 that, with the exception of the butt, appears matching unless one gets right in close and personal. A great gun for the WW2 German military collector, and a gun that is great fun to shoot at the range as well.

Absolutely stunning condition Mauser manufactured MG42 machine gun marked “D.F.” and “ar” which indicates 1944 manufacture by Mauser. Other Nazi proof marks in evidence are “bpr” (Grossfuss) on shroud, “cos” (Eickhorn) on top cover, and “ar” on roller lock frame, “dfb” (Maget) on un-numbered barrel, with Nazi proofs on other many other parts including, but not limited to bipod, feed tray, handgrip, buffer, and rear sight. Bolt has had the number scrubbed from the head and body with “ghj” prrof and is likely post-war with anti-bolt bounce assembly within. Feed tray is numbered “8909j”. Butt is a mint condition rich brown postwar replacement with added proofmarks. Anti-aircraft flip-up post not fitted to rear sight. Original WW2 vintage leather sling included, as well as highly desirable and early (1942) original Nazi manufactured “fsu” marked WW2 tripod. Also included is redacted copy of amnesty registration form. CONDITION: Overall appearance and finish is near excellent as refinished in true to original lustrous deep blue with some light scratches visible under the blue. Muzzle, bipod, feed tray, handgrip, buffer, and buffer cup do not appear to be refinished. Top cover and buffer cup exhibit more of a dull blue finish. Buttstock is superbly attractive. Dark brown/black grips near excellent with some light handling marks. Sling very strong, supple and serviceable. Tripod retains about 50% of its original panzer Gray paint with scattered light corrosion at exposed areas. Bore of gun is near excellent. Bolt is also near excellent with minty bolt face and extractor. Mechanics are crisp. This is a fully-automatic only machine gun. Absolutely stunning specimen in fantastic condition. Refinish work may well be vintage from the period as it is that faithful to the original.
