STI International Edge
Integrating patented 2011 technology with classic 1911 design, the STI International Edge is a high capacity pistol that carries John Browning’s design into the 21st Century. Since its introduction in late 1997, the STI Edge has become the standard for USPSA/IPSC Limited Division competition. Built on the STI Modular Steel 2011® frame with polymer grip, the Edge delivers the traditional features of a 1911 with the benefit of high capacity magazines. The Edge frame preserves the 17° grip angle (like the original 1911). The design allows for double stack magazines without over-sizing the circumference of the grip.

Along with its distinctive full-length dust-cover frame, the STI Edge features traditional front and rear cocking serrations. The Edge comes standard with a stainless, high-rise, knuckle-relief grip safety, stainless ambi-thumb safeties, and a stainless, fully-supported and ramped bull barrel. The Edge ships with one 126mm magazine.

SCHWARZLOSE MODEL 1898
Schwarzlose is a name that most will associate with the M1907 medium machine gun used by the Austro-Hungarian army during the First World War. However, in 1898 Andreas Wilhelm Schwarzlose completed a truly advanced pistol design, well ahead of its contemporaries in design and ergonomics.
Schwarzlose himself was a Prussian, as a young man he served as a gunner and armourer with the Austro-Hungarian army before training at the National Ordnance College and setting up his own company, A.W. Schwarzlose G.m.b.H., in Berlin in 1897. While His early pistol designs gained little traction his Model 1908 blow-forward pistol saw some success but it was his M1907 machine gun, adopted by the Austro-Hungarian army, which was his greatest success. http://www.historicalfirearms.info/page/20

File 147045523525.jpg - (133.01KB , 1280x698 , pistol German Schwarzlose Model 1898 'Standar.jpg )
98794
Schwarzlose filed his first patent for the design in Britain in 1898 while his US patent was granted in 1902 as production in Berlin began. The design evolved between the two patents with the first showing a small bolt handle on the left-hand side of the bolt this was later replaced by a T-bar configuration charging handle. Additionally the early patent describes an accelerator which would have in theory ensured the action cycled however the 7.63×25mm Mauser ammunition the pistol used proved to be more than powerful enough to cycle without an accelerator and it was removed by the time of the second patent in January 1898.
The Schwarzlose M1898 (sometimes called the ‘Standard’ or ‘Standart’) unlike many of its contemporaries, like the C-96 Mauser, was designed to be purely a pistol and not a pistol-carbine as such there was no provision for one of the holster stocks which were popular at the time. There are at least two examples of the pistol with a slot cut in the back strap to fit a holster stock but this is not seen on the majority of pistols. The pistol’s grip angle was very ergonomic making it extremely pointable. Another aspect of its design which was very advanced for the time was its controls. The M1898 had both a slide release lever (to the rear of the receiver - the pistol locked open on an empty magazine) and a safety which was designed to be thumb operated, with down being safe and up being fire (see image #1). Unlike rival pistols the controls were accessible without the firer altering their grip.

98795
The pistol had an overly complex sight, typical of the period, that rotated for graduations from 100m to 500m. It fed from a 7-round box magazine loaded into the grip and fired Mauser’s 7.63x25mm round. It was striker fired and used a short recoil system with a 4 lug rotating bolt locking the action. This was unlocked by the barrel and bolt assembly’s recoil as it traveled rearward with the bolt being cammed by a stud in the wall of the frame. Another modern feature of the pistol was that its main spring acted as a recoil spring, a striker spring, and an extractor spring. There was also an additional ‘barrel spring’ which arrested some of the barrel’s rearward motion absorbing much of the energy. The pistol’s primary design shortcoming was that if the pin or loop holding the bolt in place sheared the bolt assembly and barrel could in theory slide of the frame under recoil and hit the operator.

98796
The M1898 is an extremely elegant design for the period however, its manufacture must have been prohibitively expensive. The construction of the pistol would have required highly skilled machining with the bolt itself made from a single milled piece. As a result less than 1,000 were made with only serial numbers below 500 commonly seen. Some were purchased by the Boers during the Second Anglo-Boer War however, commercial and military interest was minimal with the pistol being overtaken by DWM’s Luger. The remaining pistols were apparently sold to Russian socialist (not Communist) revolutionaries in 1904/1905 for their planned revolution. However, the shipment was intercepted by the authorities and the pistols were allegedly issued to customs officers and border guards.

98797
While the Model 1898 proved to be a commercial failure Schwarzlose continued to develop his pistol designs next turning to a toggle-locked design the Model 1900. This too failed to find traction however, his work with toggle-locks would come to fruition with the M1907 machine gun. In 1908 a departure from large service pistols Schwarzlose designed a small blow-forward pistol which found some commercial success but production ended in 1911.

Undeniably advanced for its day Schwarzlose’s M1898 was the victim of being a little late to market and a relatively small name in a field with giants such a Mauser and DWM. Schwarzlose’s company continued to manufacture firearms up until 1919 when the factory was closed by the Allied Disarmament Commission. Schwarzlose then acted as a freelance firearms consultant until he died at the age of 69 in 1936.

The Schwarzlose Model 1908 was a semi-automatic pistol, designed by Andreas Schwarzlose, released in 1908 in German Empire and produced until 1911.

The Schwarzlose employs a very distinctive "blow-forward action" operating mechanism. It has no slide, instead the mechanism is operated by the barrel being projected forward due to the gas pressure and the friction of the bullet passing through the bore, the compressed recoil spring drives the barrel back, stripping the top cartridge from the magazine, chambering the round, and pressing the cartridge head against the standing breech, which is part of the frame. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schwarzlose_Model_1908

  Review: the Schwarzlose 1908 blow-forward 32acp pistol https://youtu.be/j_aNyqqxc6I
It may look like a run-of-the-mill old German pocket pistol, but the Schwarzlose 1908 is actually quite unique. It uses an unusual blow-forward mechanism, similar to only two other guns, the Japanese Hino Komuro and the Austrian Mannlicher 1894. Recoil in the gun is surprisingly sharp and painful, although muzzle flip is minimal. They are surprisingly hard to find, and I've never seen one in this kind of condition.

  Schwarzlose 1898 Semiauto Pistol https://youtu.be/rYl0dQAJMh4
The model 1898 Schwarzlose was a self loading pistol definitely ahead of its time. It was simple, powerful (for the period; it was chambered for 7.63mm Mauser), and remarkably ergonomic. It used a short recoil, rotating bolt mechanism to operate, and very cleverly had one single spring which did the duties of primary recoil spring, striker spring, trigger spring, and extractor spring. Why it failed to become a commercial success is a question I have not been able to definitively answer - I suspect it must have been due to cost. Edward Ezell theorizes that it was unable to compete with the Borchardt/Luger and Mauser pistols because those were able to be made with much more economy of scale. It is really a shame, because the Schwarzlose 1898 is the best of all the pre-1900 handguns I have encountered.

But SO many people think that Samuel Colt invented the revolver ... (Colts first patents 1835, 1836).

However - Elisha H Collier made a five shot flintlock revolver in 1814 (1818 patent) that worked well by the standards of the day. The cylinder had to be turned by hand and the 'frizzen' contains a reservoir for powder to self-prime the pan.

This was no 'one-off' prototype - more than 10,000 of these were made between 1819 to 1824 by John Evans & Son, London - and widely used by the colonial British forces in India. http://flicense.blogspot.com/2015_05_01_archive.html

  Lorenzoni Repeating Flintlock Pistol https://youtu.be/J_hnC6x036Q
oday we have one of the oldest guns we've looked at, a Lorenzoni repeating flintlock pistol. The system was designed by an Italian gunmaker in Florence name Michele Lorenzoni. They were made in very small numbers, and the workmanship is stunning, especially considering that they were first manufactured in the 1680s.

Instead of using a revolving cylinder pre-loaded with multiple shots, the Lorenzoni system utilizes powder and ball magazines in the frame of the gun and a rotating breechblock much like a powder throw tool used today for reloading ammunition.

Not a revolver but this amazing gun has a powder magazine in the stock above the trigger and another mag. for the balls - the video shows how it worked (six to ten shots) better than I can try explain.

US Stoner 63A Commando 5.56x45mm LMG with a belt feed drum. The Commando is 10.50 lb (4.76 kg) where the regular LMG is 11.68 lb (5.30 kg). The Commando is fitted with a 150-round drum belt container and is fed from the left-hand side. The retracting handle is locked forward and the ejection port closed with a dust cover to minimize dirt entry.

The Stoner 63, also known as the M63, XM22, XM23, XM207 or the Mk 23 Mod 0 machine gun, is an American modular weapons system designed by Eugene Stoner in the early 1960s. Cadillac Gage was the primary manufacturer of the Stoner 63 during its history. The Stoner 63 saw very limited combat use by United States forces during the Vietnam War, including the Navy SEALs and Marine Corps. A few were also sold to law enforcement agencies. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stoner_63

Stoner 63/63A Light Machine Gun: The LMG configuration fires from an open bolt and is fed from the right-hand side by linked ammunition contained in a 75, 100, 150-round drum magazine. The receiver is identical to the Rifle variants, but is inverted, so that spent cases and links are ejected to the left. The LMG has a quick-change barrel and the gas cylinder is positioned below the barrel since the receiver is inverted. The LMG configuration was adopted for military use by Navy SEAL units operating in Southeast Asia.

Stoner 63/63A Medium Machine Gun: Identical to the LMG configuration. The difference is that the MMG comes with a separate adapter than can be used to attach the weapon to an M2 or M122 tripod.

Stoner 63/63A Rifle: A standard assault rifle fed from below by a 30-round box magazine. Spent cases are ejected to the right. The cocking handle and gas system are mounted above the barrel. Unlike the belt-fed configurations, the Rifle fires from closed bolt. The rifle configuration was field tested by the USMC for a short period during April to June 1964 by a recruit company at MCRD Parris Island, SC and elsewhere in 1967. It was eventually fitted with a lightweight bipod that folded beneath the handguard.

Stoner 63/63A Carbine: The Carbine is similar to the Rifle configuration, but with a shorter barrel and a folding shoulder stock. The carbine configuration was field tested by the USMC for a short period during 1967.

Stoner 63/63A Automatic Rifle: The Automatic Rifle is an open-bolt rifle fed from a top-mounted, 30-round magazine. The front and rear sights are offset to the left to compensate for the magazine's position. The AR does not have a semi-automatic mode. The automatic rifle configuration was field tested by the USMC for a short period during 1967.

The Million Dollar Luger in .45 ACP - Currently Dave and I are writing a sort of followup to the Total Gun Manual entitled “100 Great Guns” and as I have been reacquainting myself with the world’s most famous firearms, I was reminded of the interesting story behind the very rare .45 caliber Luger.

In the movie Wall Street, greedmeister Gordon Gekko brags about owning “the rarest pistol in the world,” and shows off a (prop) .45 caliber Luger. Also known as “the million dollar Luger” the pistol was not merely a product of Oliver Stone’s imagination; it does exist as an interesting footnote to the familiar story of the Army’s adoption of the 1911 as its sidearm.

The Philippine Insurrection and the Army’s own testing — which involved shooting a bunch of live cattle and human cadavers with pistols — determined that the Army’s new sidearm should be of at least .45 caliber, as .38s had failed to make much impression on charging Moro tribesmen.

One of the several pistols submitted for the test was a .45 caliber version of the Luger semiautomatic pistol. The Army had previously purchased 1,000 7.65mm Lugers and a few in 9x19mm (aka 9mm parabellum/Luger), but only two .45 caliber Lugers were specially made up for the Army tests in 1907 by manufacturer DWM.

The Army was interested enough in it to order more for additional testing. By the time they did, DWM turned the Army down, perhaps because they had already signed a contract with the German military. Whatever the reason, that pair of Lugers remain the only two ever made in .45 ACP. The whereabouts of one is unknown. The other was sold for a $1,000,000 in 1989, although when it was auctioned in 2010 it brought “only” $494,500. So it’s really the “almost-half-a-million-dollar Luger,” but it does exist. http://www.fieldandstream.com/blogs/gun-nuts/2013/03/million-dollar-luger

99586
The Maschinegewehr 34 (MG34), first tested in 1929 and introduced in 1934, is a recoil-operated, air-cooled 7.92x57mm German machine gun. Its design was based on the MG-30, a Rheinmetall design. It is though by many to be the most advanced machine gun in the world at the time it was adopted by the German army, and was deployed in large numbers after Hitler’s repudiation of the Versailles Treaty in 1936. One of the most impressive features of the MG-34 was the combination of light weight (26.7lb) and high rate of fire (800-900 rounds per minute). Its double crescent trigger was another great feature, which allowed either semi-automatic or fully-automatic firing.

The MG-34 was equipped to use a 50 or 75 round drum magazine as well as an ammunition belt, and it could be mounted on a bipod or tripod. During periods of prolonged shooting the barrels had to be changed to avoid misfires, due to heat generated by the rapid rate of fire. Because of this, the MG-34 was designed for rapid barrel changes, requiring only disengaging a latch and swinging the receiver to the right to insert the new barrel.

99587
In spite of all of its features and benefits, high production cost and a slow rate of production for precision engineering, its dissemination through the German forces was limited. During the 1930’s the MG-34 was used as the primary infantry machine gun, and remained the primary tank and aircraft defensive weapon until 1942 when it was replaced by the MG-42.

In all, the MG-34 was used in the Second Sino-Japanese War, World War II, Chinese Civil War, the 1948 Arab-Israeli War, Korean War, Portuguese colonial war, Algerian War, Vietnam War, Angolan civil war, and the 2013 Lahad Datu standoff.

The ZB-53 was a Czechoslovak machine gun. A versatile weapon, it was used both as a squad support weapon, as a mounted machine gun for tanks and other armoured vehicles, and on fixed positions inside Czechoslovak border fortifications. Adopted before the World War II by the armies of Czechoslovakia (as TK vz. 37) and Romania, it was also license-built in the United Kingdom as the Besa machine gun. Following the Munich Agreement the German Wehrmacht captured large quantities of the weapon and used it during the war under the designation of MG 37(t).

The ZB-53 was designed by Václav Holek and Miroslav Rolčík of the Zbrojovka Brno works as a replacement for the Schwarzlose machine gun of World War I origin. Based on the earlier vz. 35 machine gun, the prototype was tested in 1936 and the following year the new machine gun was adopted by the Czechoslovak Army with the designation TK vz. 37 ("Heavy Machine Gun Mark 1937"). It was introduced as the standard machine gun of Czechoslovak LT-35 and LT-38 tanks. Czechoslovakia exported the gun to Romania, Yugoslavia, Argentina, Afghanistan, Iran and China (roughly 850 pieces used during the Second Sino-Japanese War), while UK bought a license and started to produce its own version, known as the BESA (over 60,000 pieces made). http://www.wikiwand.com/en/ZB-53

99595
The weapon was a gas-operated, belt-fed, air-cooled machine gun that served both the infantry support and vehicle weapons roles. The machine gun was delivered in three variants: infantry machine gun (on heavy tripod), heavy bunker machine gun (with heavier barrel, marked "O") and for armoured vehicles (marked "ÚV"). It was designed to withstand five minutes of constant fire, after which time the barrel had to be changed due to wear. Although modern, the weapon was prone to jamming due to complicated rate of fire selection mechanism.

Czechoslovak Zbrojovka Brno and then Zbrojovka Vsetín produced the gun in large quantities until the 1950s.

Italian WW2 Pavesi prototype rifle, a Soviet SVT copy.
This rifle is pretty much a big mystery – I have virtually no good information on it. Through inspection, we know it is a mechanical copy of the Soviet SVT 38 or 40 – it shares the same exact bolt, locking system, and gas system. Even many aesthetic features like the metal front handguard, muzzle brake, and sights are remarkably similar to those of the SVT. The biggest difference is the magazine, which is a fixed design fed only be stripper clips. The rifle is chambered for the 8x59mm Breda cartridge, and magazine capacity is unknown – probably either 9 or 10 rounds.

The clue that this is a Pavesi rifle comes from the safety lever, which is identical to the safety lever on the Model 1942 Pavesi rifle. The only markings on this piece are two repetitions of the serial number (875), on the receiver and stock. This serial number suggests that a significant number of these rifles may have been made, although I have not seen any other examples, nor any recorded information on when or where they were made, tested, or fielded. http://www.forgottenweapons.com/pavesi-prototype-svt-copy-video/

The most interesting diversion from the standard SVT construction is the addition of a leather buffer pad on the back of the receiver. This was clearly added after the rifle was built, as it must be removed before the bolt can be taken out of the action. The details of the receiver cover attachment were also modified from the original SVT, making disassembly and reassembly easier, with the mainspring less prone to kinking as in the SVT.

  Pavesi 1942 Prototype Italian Semiauto Rifle https://youtu.be/8pJ751Mui64
The Pavesi Model 1942 is a prototype Italian semiauto rifle chambered for the 8x59 Breda cartridge. It is a short recoil action with a 4-lug rotating bolt, and appears to use a Mannlicher type en bloc clip like a Carcano (no sample clip was available for me to look at). It is marked on the chamber "ARMA PAVESI-FNA BREVETTO N.365273", although I have not been able to find a patent bearing that number. The top of the rear bolt cover is marked "Semiautomatico cal.8 - mod. 1942 -xx - Brescia". It has no serial number that I could find.

I have not been able to find any substantive information on exactly who made the rifle, if or when it was tested, or what the results of any testing may have been. The 1942 date puts this well after the main Italian self-loading rifle trials, which concluded in the adoption (although not the mass production) of the Armaguerra Model 1939, in 1939.

Czech-based FK Brno introduces a new 7,5mm caliber semi-automatic defense pistol, offering previously unexplored performance in range and penetration, even up to 100 meters
One of the most interesting new products left out of the main spotlights at the 2015 edition of the IWA OutdoorClassics in Nuremberg (Germany) is a handgun design − lacking a proper denomination, yet − currently undergoing the very final stages of development with the Czech company FK Brno Engineering S.r.o..
Entirely manufactured out of steel with state-of-the-art technologies and a construction quality that would make many collector's edition pistols or race guns blush in shame, the FK Brno pistol is made immediately recognizable by its overall lenght (24 centimetres) and by some unique features of its outer appearance; what doesn't catch the eye at a first glance, however, is exactly the plethora of technical features that make it unique.
Technically speaking, the FK Brno semi-automatic pistol is based upon a modified Browning locking system and a classic SA/DA trigger... with a considerable, unique twist.
It would take a blind man to miss that long protuberance, similar to a gas tube, located right under the barrel. That's where a metal countermass sits, linked to the return spring; when the gun is fired, the countermass follows the recoil axis and counters it with a downwards pressure, reducing muzzle climb and recoil levels to those akin to, or even lower than, a .45 ACP.
Is such a reduction so important, after all? Yes, indeed, given how the FK Brno pistol chambers a proprietary ammunition.
Feeding through double-stack metal magazines, the FK Brno semi-automatic handgun design fires the Company's own 7,5 FK bottleneck cartridge, loaded with balls weighing anywhere between 90 and 110 grains in this phase; the 7,5 FK caliber develops muzzle velocity levels of 609,6 metres-per-second (2000 fps), and muzzle energy levels that exceed 1220 Newton/meter (900 ft/lbs). https://www.all4shooters.com/en/specials/trade-shows-2015/IWA-2015/pistols/FK-Brno-7-5-FK-semi-automatic-pistol/

File 149048208739.jpg - (204.14KB , 1200x781 , pistol Czech FK Brno Combat Field Pistol in 7_5x27.jpg )
103228
That's roughly the muzzle energy level of a full-power .44 Magnum round, propelled through a gun which, in this case, sports a six inches barrel; all in-house performance tests so far returned constant performance levels previously unimaginable for a semi-automatic pistol: 3,81cm (1.5") groups at 100 metres − double the maximum effective range of any standard semi-automatic pistol currently out there. That's truly a quantum leap in engagement capabilities for the world of sidearms.
Even better: the FK Brno is better fired in a... classic, academic shooting stance, held with one hand only. Indeed, this pistol is controllable enough to remain totally accurate from said shooting position.

Such an unprecedented level of range and accuracy performances has a very good reason to be, trascending the dreams of glory of all sports shooters who may be reading this.
According to the Managing Director of the FK Brno factory, Carsten Slabke, the FK Brno semi-automatic pistol has mainly been conceived for tactical and special purpose uses by military and law enforcement personnel.
Indeed this pistol/caliber combo is perfectly capable to engage a runaway car and hit the driver through the windshield at distances that, up to date, would only have been attainable with a 14,5-inch barreled carbine at the least. And, the 7,5 FK caliber is capable to pierce a Class IIIA ballistic protection at one hundred metres − with ensured lethality, given how at 100mt the bullet still maintains an extremely high velocity level (475 metres-per-second) and double the energy level to what standard 9x19mm normally develops at the muzzle.
FK Brno should start full-scale production of this incredible semi-automatic pistol any time within 2015.

The 7.5 FK Field Pistol is a single action, tilting barrel type mechanism, with a proprietary recoil attenuating system. This is not a modified design of another product or pistol model. This is a completely new and unique concept and design and the intellectual rights to the system have been registered and claimed by FK BRNO. The design is very ergonomic and even though the magazine holds 15 - 35 mm long rounds, the smallest hands are able to fully wrap around the optimally angled grip of the pistol. The frame and slide are very slender and streamlined for such a size cartridge and caliber. https://www.fkbrno.com/the-pistol-7-5

I was warned against Damascus barrels on old shotguns and rifles because the steel is weaker and they are notorious for exploding when firing modern smokeless powder loads.
William Ford 32 Bore Trigger Guard Opening Hammer Gun
32 bore triggerguard opening hammer gun. Featuring a rebounding lock, treble bite, double trigger action, c-scroll hammers with hare’s-ear spurs engraved with stunning ornate scroll, 22” etched Damascus barrels with a sunken game rib, snap forend with a horn tip and a handsome straight hand stock measuring 14 ¼”. The gun weighs 3lbs ½oz and fits neatly into its oak and leather case with brass corners. The dainty gun, in an almost forgotten calibre, is a joy to handle and a pleasure to view. The triggerguard opening system is operated with ease with just a small amount of pressure applied with the trigger and middle finger on the front of guard, it slides it back and draws all three bites to release the barrels. It is a truly exquisite example of skill, craftsmanship and ingenuity from a fine Birmingham gunmaker.

Yeah, and the unholy bastard child is a 4 gauge (23mm) pistol.
Full Automatic Class III/NFA Armalite AR-18 Rifle with Scope
Estimated Price: $9,500 - $16,000
An excellent example of an original and very scarce fully-automatic Armalite AR-18 rifle manufactured by Armalite in Costa Mesa, California. A contemporary alternative to the M16, the AR-18 was designed to be robust and simple to produce, using a short stroke piston system and stamped receiver components. Though not accepted by the military, there are those who consider it to be a superior weapon, with several modern proposed replacements for the M16/M4 platform using a similar piston arrangement. Post front and adjustable two leaf peep rear sights, with a flared flash hider, maker's marks on the upper receiver, and the ambidextrous three position selector on the lower. The receiver is mounted with an Armalite 2.75x20mm scope. Ribbed and vented handguard, with a "AR-18/ArmaLite" marked forward and rear grips, and a side folding buttstock. Includes three extra magazines, scope box, and instruction manual for the scope. https://www.rockislandauction.com/detail/70/2477/full-automatic-class-iiinfa-armalite-ar-18-rifle#detail

AR-18S Shortie - It was sold from Armalite in 1985 as an “S” model and was either a mule or part of the companies collection.

It was became somewhat famous when it appeared in the Small Arms Review article “The Lost Armalites”

The black and white photos make it hard to tell if the upper on the gun is the same as when it was sold in 1998 but I think it is. Is the upper the same as when it was sold in 1985 is the real question. One can never be sure. http://ar180s.com/

Springfield Armory Model 1855 Pistol-Carbine
Manufactured in 1855. The Springfield Armory manufactured 4,021 of these distinctive weapons between 1855-1857. The Model 1855 Pistol-Carbine was intended to provide the U.S. Cavalry and Dragoon regiments with a weapon that could be utilized as a carbine for dismounted action when fitted with the stock and a pistol for use on horseback with the stock removed. The lock plate has a magazine for Maynard tape primers and a bolster with cleanout screw. The buttcap has a sling ring and the stock and barrel band are fitted with sling swivels. The pistol stock and detachable stock are oil finished black walnut. The lock plate is dated "1855" behind the hammer and marked "U.S./SPRINGFIELD" in front of the tape-primer door. The primer door is marked with the eagle and shield motif. The left barrel flat is stamped with "V/P/Eaglehead" proof and inspection marks. The assembly number "15" is stamped on the buttcap. The stock is stamped with the assembly number "14". "U.S." is stamped on the top of the stock buttplate tang. A faint two-letter script Ordnance Department Oval final inspection mark is visible on the left stock flat. Arsenal bright finish with brass furniture. Manufactured in relatively small numbers the Model 1855 Pistol-Carbines were issued to the U.S. Cavalry and Dragoon regiments on the pre-Civil War frontier in conjunction with Colt revolvers. Nearly all of the 4,026 Model 1855 Pistol-Carbines appear to have been issued; examples typically show moderate to heavy service wear.

Webley Fosbery Self-Cocking Revolver in Scarce .38 ACP with Holster Sold to British Indian Army Officer
Manufactured in limited quantities at the turn of the 20th century, the Webley-Fosbery uses a novel recoil driven operating system. The pistol is divided into two main components; an upper frame carrying the barrel, cylinder, and the hammer is mated to the lower grip frame and single action trigger and disconnector assembly on a spring loaded track. On discharge the recoil energy drives the entire upper frame back along the track recocking the hammer and advancing the cylinder. This example is chambered in scarce .38 ACP caliber. A total of 417 of these revolvers were originally manufactured in .38 ACP, but it is estimated that only 200 left the factory. The accompanying serial number research letter from Richard Milner Ltd. states that the revolver was sold by P. Webley & Son on September 19, 1903, to The Army & Navy Co-operative Stores Limited of London who sold the revolver to Major Campbell of the Indian Army on February 16, 1904. Major Campbell is General Sir Frederick Campbell (1860-1943). When he bought the revolver in early 1904, he was serving as the commanding officer for the 40th Pathans (1899-1906), an infantry regiment of the British Indian Army. While with the 40th Pathans, he participated in the Younghusband Expedition to Tibet (December 1903-September 1904). This expedition was a British invasion for the purpose of resolving a border dispute between Tibet and Sikkim and originated out of fears of a perceived Russian threat to British interests in India. The march to Lhase in August 1904 (which Campbell took part in) caused the Dalai Lama to flee to safety, ironically to China. Other career highlights include: second in command during the Malakand campaign in 1897 and during operations in Mamund country from 1897-98, and commanding officer of the Guides Infantry, Buner, North West Frontier in 1898 and 1 Peshawar Division from 1915-1919. He retired in 1920. The frame has "WEBLEY FOSBERY" and the W&S winged bullet logo followed by "38 AUTOMATIC" on the left side and an overstruck serial number on the right side ("7336" over "1126" believed to be a factory error; factory letter has serial number "1126"). The barrel is marked "ARMY & NAVY CSL." The leather flap holster is unmarked.

This was mine a few weeks ago. (Here's proof, check the serial and the post in the sticky.)

That auction house royally fucked me. Last .38 model sold for $34K and it was half as good as mine.

Mine was near perfect, un-fired and had fucking documents about the owner and copies form the Webley and Scott archives about it. They said it would potentially sell for ~16K in the listing and talked down about its condition. It ended up selling for just over $20 early this month, half of what I was expecting.

On discharge the recoil energy drives the entire upper frame back along the track recocking the hammer and advancing the cylinder. While this mechanism combines many of the positive features of both a revolver and an automatic pistol, it did not catch on, and the revolver was supplanted by the automatic as the primary sidearm of the military, police and civilians. As discussed in an appraisal form from noted author and arms authority Charles Kenyon, Jr. (copy included), only about 5,000 were manufactured, the majority were in the more common seven inch barrel configuration, and very few made it to the United States. Blade front and notch rear sights, with "WEBLEY FOSBERY AUTOMATIC" on the left side of the top strap and "455 CORDITE ONLY." next to the "winged bullet" trademark on the left side plate of the lower frame. The top strap is marked "ARMY & NAVY C.S.L.", the merchant mark of the Army & Navy Co-Operative Society; originally formed to get participating military members low prices on goods, the Co-Operative Society grew into a sizeable department store chain, including a firearms department. The sales records are retained by the Archive Services department of the University of Glasgow, which might provide insight into the original owner. The hammer is checkered on three sides, with Birmingham proofs on multiple components, a safety switch on the left side of the lower frame, a pair of checkered grips and a lanyard swivel on the butt.

This is a beautiful example of an early "two-digit" serial number (12) Ludwig Loewe & Co. Prototype Model 1893 Borchardt pistol set. This set includes the combination walnut shoulder stock with black leather holster, three magazines (two cartridge and one dummy magazine), the leather sling, silver plated oiler with leather case and a brass cleaning rod with wooden handle. The pistol and all the accessories are all stored in a beautiful custom oak display case that has a highly figured lid that features a large brass escutcheon plate on top that is engraved with the three intertwined initials of "L.L.C." which probably stands for "Ludwig Loewe & Co." There is also a small brass escutcheon plate inside the case with the same exact style of engraved initials. This specific pistol (serial number 12) is the lowest Borchardt pistol we have ever offered for sale and is the lowest serial numbered Borchardt pistol we have ever seen offered for sale! It is totally void of any factory markings and is only serial numbered on the underside of the frame grip, the rear frame lug, the back sides of each grip panel and on the underside of the barrel. There are also no chamber or receiver marking, nor does it have the German patent applied number on the side of the frame, and all three magazines are unnumbered. The barrel and breech block also do not carry any standard German acceptance or firing proofs. It is fitted with a set of checkered walnut grips that are both stamped with a large serial number "12" on the back sides with the right side also carved with and intertwined "LWS." Truly a very interesting and certainly early prototype Borchardt Model 1893 pistol.

Rare Serial Number "1" Norwegian Vaapenfabrikk Model 1912 Semi-Automatic Pistol
Estimated Price: $7,500 - $15,000 https://www.rockislandauction.com/detail/70/677/1914-serial-number-1-norwegian-vaapenfabrikk#detail
This is an unbelievable find for the advanced semi-automatic pistol collector. This is an extremely rare example of a Norwegian Model 1912 serial number "1" semi-automatic pistol. These were a licensed copy of the Colt M1911 pistol, only they were manufactured at the Norwegian Vaapenfabrikk arsenal/factory in Kongsberg, Norway. They were originally designated as the Colt Automatic Pistol M/1912; however, this was later changed to M/1914. These were the standard Norwegian service pistols issued during WWI and then again in WWII and later by the Nazis after the invasion of Norway in 1940. These early models are rarely found as they saw considerable use and very few were ever rebuilt. This rare pistol is correctly stamped with serial number "1" on all the various parts except the barrel which is a WWII High Standard replacement barrel. The left side of the slide is stamped with only "1917/A". The right side of the slide is marked with a Crown/D and Crown/K proof mark over "No.1". The full serial number "1" is stamped on the left side of the frame, the trigger, slide release, thumb safety, ejector, hammer, grip safety, mainspring housing, of course the slide as noted the inside of the barrel channel just in front of the locking lugs, the right side of the magazine release, the barrel bushing, recoil spring housing and recoil spring plug, and the face of the firing pin stop. As noted, it is fitted with a replacement WWII High Standard replacement barrel that is stamped "HS" and "P" respectively on the side of the barrel lugs. It is fitted with a set of standard checkered walnut grips. This pistol is complete with a replacement M1911A1 all blued magazine with a capital "A" stamped on the lip.

Mine was in better condition and had every source of documents and records you could ask for.

Sure, maybe 40K was asking a bit much. But 20K?!

There's already people talking about the sale of it in the collectors community and offers are being made to the buyer of mine. Super fucking pissed.

Full-auto .22 Tommy Gun?
Rare Auto-Ordnance Model 1928 A22 Class III/NFA Fully Automatic 22 LR Submachine Gun
Estimated Price: $11,000 - $16,000
This is an example of a late production Auto-Ordnance Model 1928 A22 Thompson Submachine gun in rare "22 LR". Yep that is right, this little beauty is chambered in the ever popular and easy to obtain 22 LR. Now tell me this wouldn't be a blast to take down to the local range and run off about 500-1000 rounds of 22 LR? At a cost of how much? Maybe $80-100 bucks. Wow that’s cheap, fun shooting! In 1975, the Auto-Ordnance Corp. of West Hurley, New York, again began producing a newly manufactured Model 1928 SMG. They eventually produced a very limited number of that model chambered in 22 LR in the early 1980s. These new production weapons still retained many of the earlier original style parts such as the finned barrel, adjustable peep rear sight, Thompson-Cutts style compensator on the barrel with a vertical fore grip, and a detachable buttstock. The left side of the receiver is marked "U.S. MODEL 1928 A22/ No. 130TF." Farther back it is marked "THOMPSON SUBMACHINE GUN/CALIBER .22LR". The right side is marked with the standard five patent lines just like the original versions followed by "AUTO-ORDNANCE CORPORATION/WEST HURLEY, NEW YORK, U.S.A." This neat little SMG has a walnut stock, vertical fore grip and pistol grip. The gun has an all aluminum receiver, trigger group and barrel (which has a steel liner in the bore) so that its very light in weight, with a black anodized finish overall. It is complete with the original matching shipping box from the company, three 30 round stick magazine, the original warranty card, and advertisement papers. https://www.rockislandauction.com/detail/70/2468/rare-auto-ordnance-model-1928-a22-class-iiinfa-fully-auto#detail

World War II Japanese Type 11 Nagoya Arsenal Light Machine Gun Captured on Kwajalein Feb 1944
Estimated Price: $8,500 - $13,000
This is a very scarce and certainly unique early Japanese Type 11 light machine gun as adopted in 1922. This weapon was actually a modified French Hotchkiss design that fired the standard 6.5 Japanese rifle round. One of the interesting aspects of this MG is that it is feed by a hopper mechanism located on the left side of the action that was designed to use the standard 5-round rifle stripper clips with a special reduced charged cartridge. The clips were laid flat in the hopper so that they feed the cartridges into the side of the mechanism. It can be easily distinguished by the very unique radically curved buttstock that provided an easy way to carry or hold the gun. These are all fitted with a finned barrel with no flash hider and a long folding bipod. The top of the gun shows a long section of Kanji markings with the serial number "28678" on the end. The right side is marked with the Nagoya Arsenal symbol followed by the Showa date of 14.12 (Dec 1939). This specific weapon has a documented history in that on the right side of the buttstock is a GI type dog tag that has been stamped with "Captured By/7th Cav RCN Troop/BEGEJ IS Kwajalein/Marshall Islands/5 February 1944." Begej is one of the islands in Kwajalein Atoll and the actual battle took place from approximately 31 Jan- 3 Feb 1944. The dog-tag is held on by two old wood screws and they appear to be original to both the tag and the buttstock. The cartridge feed hopper has been severely damaged on the side and it appears that at one time another barrel was tack-welded to the front edge of the receiver, which was removed with this barrel installed.

Japanese Type 99 Light Machine Gun
Estimated Price: $6,500 - $11,000
This is a good example of a desirable and late WWII Japanese Type 99 LMG. This model was developed in 1939 as a replacement for the Type 96 LMG and fired the new, heavier 7.7mm Japanese cartridge. These were a very successful light machine guns that and are used throughout the war by the Japanese forces in occupied territories. They are very similar to the earlier Type 96 in configuration and function, but they have a forward mounted folding bipod, a new finned quick change barrel with a top mounted carrying handle and a fully adjustable mono-pod attached to the underside of the buttstock. These were very well made machine guns that featured all machined parts and hardwood buttstocks and pistol grips. The right side of the receiver has the four intertwined cannon balls of the Kokura Arsenal next to the arsenal inspectors mark and several Kana markings/the series mark/serial number over the showa date of 19.10 (Sept 1944). The top front edge of the ejection port is marked "75 DWS 84010, and it has been fitted with a brass magazine adapter ( we have not been able to identify what magazine fits the adapter).

World War II Nazi MG-34 Fully Automatic Class III/NFA C&R Light Machine Gun
Estimated Price: $11,000 - $16,000
This is an example of a early WWII German MG-34 light machine gun as used by all German forces throughout WWII. These were developed in 1934/35 by the Rheinmetall company and were considered as an excellent and very reliable machine gun, however, they proved to be too costly and time consuming to produce. They were eventually replaced with the later stamped and machined MG-42s. These weapons featured all machined parts that were in many cases hand fitted with exacting tolerances. The top of the barrel jacket is marked "ar-41/3264d", indicating manufacture by the Mauser factory in Borgiswalde outside Berlin. It is fitted with the original folding bipod, front sight and tangent rear marked 2-20 (200-2,000 meters) and is fitted with the red bakelite buttstock. This example is very scarce in that it has mostly matching numbered parts to include the receiver, barrel jacket, top cover and the rear collar on the end of the receiver. The buttstock is from another weapon, which probably indicates it was a veteran bring back as the buttstock was removed so it could be fitted into something smaller and the remaining internal parts appear to have mixed serial numbers. At some point in time the front upper edge of the trigger has been welded into the trigger housing so you can't pull the bolt to the rear of the weapon, making it non-operative at this point. This lot does not include any other parts or accessories, however there are many other replacement parts available on the secondary market.

"Type I Krummlauf" Style Angle Firing Device with Grenade Launcher
Estimated Price: $2,500 - $4,000
One of the great oddities of the Third Reich arsenal, the "krummlauf" device was a cause of a great deal of confusion on the part of the Allies when examples were captured. As a mechanical concept, curving a barrel to change the path of a bullet seems readily dismissible, but the Germans built a device to do exactly that. The first examples were built for test-firing high-powered anti-aircraft weapons, allowing safe test shots at elevated angles, and were later adapted for field use. A krummlauf-equipped assault rifle or machine gun could be used by infantry to fire over barricades or around corners without exposure or mounted in compact ball turrets on tanks and vehicles as a point defense weapon against sappers and enemy infantry. In addition to being equipped with the distinctive prismatic sight that allowed the operator to see what he was aiming at, this model is equipped with a later adjustable gas bleed device, a modified rifle grenade launching tube, and a wooden handgrip. The mount is faintly marked, and "+/5" is stamped on the launcher.

Seen these before, but never a grenade launcher version.
Easier on the barrel since you shoot blanks to launch the grenades.

Type I Krummlauf Style Angle Firing Device with Grenade Launcher and Inert Solid Receiver StG44 Style Display Piece
Estimated Price: $3,500 - $6,000
This is a reproduction of one of the great oddities of the Third Reich arsenal, the "krummlauf" device was a cause of a great deal of confusion on the part of the Allies when examples were captured. As a mechanical concept, curving a barrel to change the path of a bullet seems more like something plagiarized from the Bugs Bunny playbook, but the Germans actually did it. The first examples were built for test-firing high-powered anti-aircraft weapons, allowing test shots at elevated angles, and were later adapted for field use. A krummlauf-equipped assault rifle or machine gun could be used by infantry to fire over barricades or around corners without exposure, or mounted in compact ball turrets on tanks and vehicles as a point defense weapon against sappers and enemy infantry. In addition to being equipped with the distinctive prismatic sight that allowed the operator to see what he was aiming at, this model is equipped with a later adjustable gas bleed device, a modified rifle grenade launching tube, and a wooden handgrip. Also included with the device is an inert StG 44 (some original components assembled around an inert alloy receiver), one "qlv" marked MP44 magazine, and a loose gas piston and bolt.

World War II British No. 4 MKI (T) Enfield Sniper Rifle with Matching Scope, Mount and Wooden Carrying Case
Estimated Price: $5,500 - $7,500
This is an excellent example of a late WWII production British Enfield No. 4 MK 1 (T) sniper rifle that is complete with the matching scope, mount, metal scope and wooden storage/carrying case. These rifles were the standard British sniper rifles developed in the late 1930s and used until the early 1960s. The left side of the rifle receiver is correctly marked "no. 4 MK I (T)", and the left side of the butt socket is marked "M47C/ENGLAND/1944/E3442/TR". The rifle is fitted with the correct and matching No 32 MKIII scope that is marked on top of the tube "TEL.STG.No 32 MKII/O.S. 2039 A/A.K&S No17285/1944/broad arrow", with the rings numbered 12 on the rear set with 13 and 15 on the front set. The mounting bracket is stamped with the matching serial number (E34422), and the scope number is correctly stamped on top of the pistol grip in front of the cheekpiece. The rifle is complete with the matching No. 8 Mark I metal scope can numbered to match the rifle and scope. The rifle has the standard blade front sight and tangent military rear sight. It is fitted with the correct wartime smooth semi-pistol grip stock with the standard proofmarks and matching serial numbers and correctly stamped "S51" directly behind the pistol grip area with the steel buttplate with butt trap compartment. It is also fitted with the correct screw-on cheek piece. The rifle is complete with an original leather sling and correct leather scope covers. The rig is complete with the correct wartime green wooden storage/shipping container.

Vietnam War Trophy World War II 98K Bolt Action Rifle Outfitted with a Field-Modified "Trench" Magazine and Special Forces Capture papers from Vietnam with Documentation
Estimated Price: $2,500 - $4,000
Finding a German infantry rifle with capture papers is interesting but not really strange or unusual. Having those papers filled out at Bien Hoa Army Base in December of 1969 is a horse of a different color. Made out to a Staff Sergeant Jack L. Gibson of Company A, 5th Special Forces Group, the export license identifies this "rifle, German" by serial number as OK to ship to Fairbury, Nebraska. The 5th Special Forces Group (aka 5th SFG(A)) traces its lineage to the 1st Special Service Force of WWII fame and was present for virtually the duration of the Vietnam War, being among the first Special Forces units sent in to act as advisors to the South Vietnam military in 1961 and some of the last forces out when the government collapsed in 1975. As North Vietnamese weapons go, this one is particularly interesting, a J.P. Sauer produced Mauser 98 bolt action rifle that bears a number of Chinese markings on the receiver and buttstock in addition to the standard German markings and that has been altered by an unknown party to use a repurposed "BSW 1939" marked MG13 25-round magazine as a fixed "trench mag". The exact circumstances are unknown, but the Nationalist Chinese government did import and use German-made 98k rifles and MG13 machine guns during the Chinese Civil War and the Second Sino-Japanese war, and some adventuresome Chinese or Vietnamese gunsmith might have brought the two together. Along with the capture papers, the rifle also includes scans of books and articles connected with the original WWI-vintage "trench" magazines, as well as a similar rifle noted as a Soviet capture given to the Vietnamese.

Bergmann Model 1897 Semi Automatic Pistol with Combination Leather Holster/Shoulder Stock
Estimated Price: $18,000 - $22,500
This is an example of an late production Bergman Model 1897 Number 5 semi-automatic pistol with the rare combination leather holster/shoulder stock. These Number 5 pistols were very unique and very complex in that they incorporated a locked breech firing mechanism and a separate detachable box magazine. The Bergman series of semi-automatic pistol were probably one of the more innovative semi-automatics pistols that were designed in the late 1890s with this Model 1897 Number 5 being one of his best designs. As noted, this model is fairly unique in that it has an outer barrel casing with an internal sliding barrel that is directly in line the breechblock. When fired, the internal barrel recoils rearward about 6 mm to unlock the breech which starts the extraction/ejection sequence of the pistol. These pistols were chambered for a 7.65mm Bergmann cartridge, similar to the 7.63 mm Mauser round but not interchangeable. As noted, it has a detachable box magazine which is fairly unique at this time as most pistols of the era had an internal magazine. It also incorporated a bolt hold-open latch (both patented features) and had a gas port on the left side of the receiver to avoid any over pressure in the event there was a ruptured cartridge. Many of these features were later incorporated into the Bergman-Simplex model. As noted, this uses a detachable combination leather holster/shoulder stock, similar to the 1896 Mauser pistols. However, the stock was actually comprised of a lightweight metal frame with a leather outer cover and a small pouch on the front. Originally intended to be sold as a commercial/military model, this pistol was never actually adopted by any country, and only a few hundred were ever manufactured. The top of the breech bolt is marked with "PISTOLET BERGMANN/PATENT BREVETE S.G.D.G." The left side of the receiver has a "Double Crown/U" proof. The lower right side of the frame is numbered "260," the front of the holster/stock is numbered "093," and it has the refinished "matching" box magazine that is correctly numbered "260". The barrel casing is fitted with a fixed blade front sight, and the rear is fitted with a unique upside-down "U" shaped rear sight that is adjustable for elevation. The left side of the sight is marked: "1-1000 METERS". It is fitted with a set of brown hard rubber, checkered grips with a single large letter "B" at the top of each panel. It has an all blued finish with the trigger, under lever, hammer and the two safety levers on the left side having a straw colored finish. Theodore Bergman was a pioneer in developing semi-automatic pistols in Europe in the late 1890s and early 1900s right along side with the Mauser, Borchardt, Luger and Walther factories during their early developmental years. These early commercial pistols are very difficult to find as so few were produced with even fewer surviving WWII.

Undocumented World War II "Heinrich Himmler" Presentation J.P. Sauer Model 38H Semi-Automatic Pistol
Estimated Price: $35,000 - $65,000
This is an very rare example of a Model 38H J. P. Sauer & Sohn "Heinrich Himmler" shooting prize presentation pistol. Identical pistols are listed and photographed on pages 353-356 in the reference book "J. P Sauer & Sohn; A Historical Study of Sauer Automatic Pistols" by Jim Cate and Nico Van Gijn. These specific pistols are noted as being Heinrich Himmler sniper shooting prize pistols. This specific pistol falls directly into the noted range of the "H. Himmler" SS presentation pistols, however, it is not listed, so its fresh to the collector market. The consignor noted that he received this pistol from his grandfather who was the Chief of Police in Decatur, Ill., in 1950s-60s, and confiscated it from a "drifter". There were only 5 known documented Heinrich Himmler shooting prize Sauer 38H pistols that were captured at the end of WWII. The pistols were given to SS members as shooting awards based on their exceptional shooting ability during the war. One of these pistols was even captured at Hitler's Berchtesgaden home, before it could be presented. This Model 38 has the factory high-polish blue finish with the hand engraved presentation; "Dem Scarfschutzen-" followed a facsimile signature of "H. Himmler". The literal translation is "The Sniper". The right side of the slide also has the factory engraved two line "J.P. Sauer & Sohn, Suhl/ Cal. 7.65" factory legend which is exactly on the opposite side of standard production pistols. The pistol has checkered, black plastic grips with the encircled Sauer monogram on the left grip. The frame is serial numbered (475401) on the left side below the slide serrations. It has the Nazi "Eagle/N" proofmarks on the right rear side of the frame and slide and on the very front edge of the barrel. It comes complete with one original magazine that has a dull blued finish and is marked on the rear edge of the floorplate "CAL,.7.65".

World War II Gustloff Werke "bcd/4" Model 98 Long Rail bolt Action Sniper Rifle with Scope
Estimated Price: $14,000 - $22,500
Manufactured late in the war in Suhl, this Gustloff Model 98 Rifle is outfitted in the "long rail sniper" configuration, with the 3 1/2 inch long mounting rail secured to the receiver side wall with two guide pins and three screws, the latter also fitted with a set of smaller lock screws; mechanically this mounting system was very similar to the American-fielded M1C Sniper, though the use of an extended mount arrangement to bring the scope directly over the bore simplified armorer installation and end-user adjustment of the optics. The rifle is fitted with a hooded blade front sight and a tangent rear sight, with the receiver ring marked "eagle/swastika/bcd/4" and the rear area of the barrel marked "ceej" and "eagle/37". Mounted on the rail is a "bek" code Dialytan 4x scope numbered "77721", with a ring and mount set numbered "3130w". Both the mount and base bear "eagle/359" proofs. The bolt components are numbered to match the receiver, with "ghn" on the cocking piece, additional matching numbers are present on the rear sight components, milled front barrel band, stamped mid band, and floorplate, an "lxr" follower and a stamped "byf" trigger guard assembly. Fitted with a smooth pistol grip stock, bearing the Heer "eagle/H" stamp on the right side of the buttstock, a faint "eagle" proof on the underside, and a cupped steel buttplate. High quality examples of late war German sniper rifles are very rare on the market, as many snipers made a point to destroy or discard their equipment prior to capture for fear of reprisals, rifles captured by the Soviets tended to be roughly treated prior to long term storage, often with the original markings struck off to "de-Nazify" the weapon and parts mixed and matched to make functional rifles, and rifles captured by Americans often suffered from "duffle cuts" to make them fit in their luggage, sporterization, parts mixing, and other issues.

World War II U.S. General Motors Guide Lamp FP-45 Liberator Single Shot Pistol
Estimated Price: $1,800 - $2,750
Manufactured in 1942, the Liberator pistol went from concept (reportedly suggested by Winston Churchill after reading Steinbeck's "The Moon is Down", which included a plot point of an occupied town receiving an air drop of loose sticks of dynamite with matches taped to the sides) to a complete production run in just 6 months. The full kit (pistol, 10 rounds of ammo, a 1 page "comic strip" instruction sheet, a dowel rod for ejecting spend cartridges and a waxed box; note the lack of a parachute on this list) was to be thrown out of the back of a low flying airplane in large quantities where they could be found by civilians and used against occupation forces, either to steal better weapons for more coordinated resistance activity or just to let the Germans know how they really felt about the occupation. Minus shipping costs, the whole package only cost Uncle Sam about $3. While produced in mass quantity, the lions share of the Liberators were destroyed after the war. The pistol itself is constructed primarily from sheet metal stampings welded and pinned around a smoothbore steel tube, with two oiler holes on the left and one on the right, with a cast zinc cocking knob and a sliding cover on the butt for an ammo storage compartment.

U.S. Guide Lamp FP-45 Liberator Single Shot Clandestine Pistol with Original Box and Instruction Sheet
Estimated Price: $4,500 - $7,000
The Liberator was developed to provide citizens of occupied nations a tool of resistance without inadvertently providing useful material to the occupiers and was conceived, developed and manufactured in 1942. The Guide Lamp Division of General Motors was tapped to produce the actual firearm, dubbed the Flare Pistol, 45 Caliber (FP-45) as a cover name, a collection of sheet metal stampings and cast zinc components assembled around a smoothbore barrel. While inexperienced with arms production, Guide Lamp stepped up admirably and cranked out over a million of the deadly little contraptions in a matter of months. Aside from an "F" stamped near the loading gate, the pistol is devoid of markings. It has a set of 3 oiler holes in the frame and a hollow grip for ammunition storage. Included with the pistol is a heavily waxed cardboard box with an illustration of the pistol mid-discharge and a 12-panel "comic strip" instruction sheet with a "WHITING/MUTUAL BOND" watermark.

U.S. Springfield Armory M1C Semi-Automatic Sniper Rifle with Original G&H Mount, Lyman M82 Scope, Flash Hider, Leather Cheekpiece and Papers
This is an fine example of a late WWII production U.S. Springfield Armory M1C sniper rifle with M82 telescopic sight, G&H mount, leather cheek piece and web sling. The M1C style sniper rifles were developed in mid-late 1944 and were used in by both the U.S. Army and USMC during WWII, Korea and even Vietnam. This late WWII rifle was refurbished for the Korean War, and it is currently has a mix of Springfield Armory marked parts with a Korean War era barrel marked "SA-9-51". It has a late type III rear sight. The parts are marked as follows: bolt is marked "D28287-18-SA", trigger housing marked "D28290-8-SA" with a milled trigger guard, and the operating rod is marked: "D35382-SA". The barrel is fitted with a post war, wide base gas cylinder, round top lock with a four slot gas plug. It has an all walnut stock and handguard set. The stock has been arsenal refurbished as it lacks a traditional inspector cartouche on the side (however it is probably has a rebuilt cartouche under the cheekpad), and it has a double circled "P" firing proof on the pistol grip area. The rear of the receiver is marked "SA-52" indicating it rebuilt in 1952, and it is fitted with a unnumbered Griffin & Howe scope base/bracket. This rifle comes with a an original WWII, all blued G&H mount that has the Griffin & Howe markings on top and is numbered "3349319" on the back side. The mount is fitted with an original WWII issue, all blue M82 telescopic sight. The M82 telescopic sight has the correct post reticle and is roll-stamped in three lines on the left side "TELESCOPE M82/SERIAL NO. 39309/STOCK NO. 84374". The telescope is complete with the rubber eyepiece, sliding sun shade and windage and elevation knob covers with part numbers on the top. The leather lace-on cheekpiece is correct Korean War issue version marked on the side "MRT/10-52". It is complete with a GI green web sling and a milled "M2/HART" marked original GI flash hider.

The shotgun has the Winchester commercial blue finish. The stock and forearm are straight grain American walnut with the Winchester low-luster varnish commercial finish. The second pattern handguard/bayonet lug has the correct heavy gauge sling swivel and lacks the patent markings found on the WWI bayonet lugs with six-hole handguard. The stock has a Winchester commercial style, black checkered hard rubber, buttplate embossed with the circular "Winchester Repeating Arms" logo. The left side of the barrel is roll-stamped with the two-line Winchester legend and "Model 97" designation followed by "2 3/4 CHAM./ CYL." The underside of the barrel is stamped with the date "42". Oval Winchester "W/P" proofmarks are stamped on the top of the barrel and the receiver. The serial number "E/953795" is stamped across the bottom of the receiver, and "953795" is stamped across the bottom of the takedown collar. A small Ordnance "Shell & Flame" inspection mark is stamped on the top of the barrel in front of the proofmark. A "U.S." property mark followed by a "Shell & Flame" mark are roll-stamped on the lower left side of the receiver.

The shotgun is fitted with a WWII production web sling with ink-stamped maker's initials and 1944 date. Model 97 Trench Guns were widely issued during WWII to all the services but saw the most combat use with the Marine Corps in the Pacific Theater. These shotguns proved invaluable in close-quarter combat and remained in service, until after the Vietnam War. Most of the WWII Model 97 Trench Guns saw extensive service and most were subsequently arsenal overhauled and refinished. As a result, WWII Model 97 Trench Guns are scarce in original condition.

Model 12 Trench Guns with the late production parkerized finish were manufactured in far smaller quantities than blued Model 12 Trench Guns.

U.S.M.C. Model 1903A1 Springfield Rifle with Unertl Telescopic Sight (M1941 Sniper Rifle)
Estimated Price: $9,000 - $14,000
Springfield Model 1903A1 rifle manufactured circa 1943 with a U.S.M.C. Sedgley barrel dated "8-41" fitted with an Unertl "USMC/SNIPER" 8x telescopic sight with target mounts. The rifle has the typical Model 1941 Sniper features which include a WWII replacement handguard milled to provide clearance for the scope blocks, Unertl "O" and "E" scope blocks mounted on the barrel and receiver that are 7.2 inches center to center, blue serial numbered bolt, replacement "C" stock with circled "P" proof mark on the inside of the pistol grip but no Ordnance final inspection marks, modified trigger guard and a fixture mark on the underside of the barrel. The scope block opening on the handguard is correctly hand finished and the rear scope block is mounted flush against the rear sight base. The barrel has the pipe wrench marks adjacent to the rear sight base which are typical of the Sedgley barrels installed on U.S.M.C. service rifles. The receiver has the additional gas port ("Hatcher Hole") on the left side of the receiver which is found on virtually all WWII U.S.M.C. Model 1903 rifles and the late style "NS" marked bolt has two gas ports. The rifle has a post WWI buttplate with deep checkering, post war rear sight with leaf that lacks the 2,850 yard volley notch that was eliminated circa 1919 with flat faced windage and elevation knobs, grooved trigger and "CV" marked extractor. The safety has pre-WWI Roman serifed markings and the magazine cut-off is fully parkerized and has the later Gothic markings. The rifle has the original dark gray-green parkerized finish that is typical of pre-WWII Springfield Armory weapons. The bolt has a dark black/blue finish. The Unertl telescopic sight has the original commercial blue finish and is marked "J. UNERTL/USMC-SNIPER/2301" just ahead of the eyepiece locking ring. The power designation "8" is stamped on the top of the eyepiece locking ring. The aluminum mounts have the correct black finish. The scope has a fine cross-wire reticle and is complete with the steel screw-on lens covers. The walnut stock and forearm are oil finished. The rifle is complete with a russet Model 1907 sling and oiler in the butt-trap. The Model 1941 Sniper rifle was the Marines attempt to field a precision sniper rifle utilizing a Model 1903A1 National Match rifle with an Unertl target telescopic sight. The Model 1941 Snipers were manufactured by the Ordnance Section of the Marine Corps Depot of Supplies in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania circa 1943. Total production of Model 1941 Sniper rifles is unknown but was less than 2,000 rifles. The first approximately 1,000 rifles were based on Model 1903A1 National Match/Model 1903 NM and star-gauged Model 1903/Model 1903A1 "Special Target" rifles in the Marine inventory. When the supply of National Match and Special Target rifles was exhausted selected components that met pre-war National Match specifications were used to assemble Model 1941 Sniper rifles. The Sedgley contract barrels purchased by the U.S.M.C. were available to the Philadelphia Ordnance Section and presumably were installed on late production Model 1941 Sniper rifles like this example. The Model 1941 Sniper rifles first saw action with the Marine Raiders in the Solomon Islands and the 2nd Marine Division on Tarawa in late 1943. Neither operation lent itself to extensive use of snipers and based on after action reports from the field, the Marines discontinued production of the Model 1941 Sniper rifles. However, the Model 1941 Sniper rifles remained the primary Marine sniper rifle during both WWII and the Korean Conflict. Despite the relatively fragile Unertl telescopic sight the Model 1903 Sniper was probably the most accurate sniper rifle in service during WWII.

Estimated Price: $2,500 - $4,000
Designed in the 1960s by Paris Theodore and produced through the 1970s, the ASP package takes a Smith & Wesson double-action pistol and performs a radical "remanufacturing".

The original sights are replaced with a one-piece Guttersnipe sighting plane. The grips are translucent Lexan, and the magazines are shortened to match and cut on the sides for round counting. Includes a Safariland leather holster, black leather double magazine pouch, and extra magazine.

Fabrique Nationale "G-Series" Semi-Automatic Rifle with Scope and Box
Estimated Price: $6,000 - $9,000
Produced in Belgium, this rifle is part of a limited importation run performed by Browning Arms in the early 1970s. Originally given a green light by the ATF, an exemption was granted for the rifles that had already brought into the country before the ATF reversed their position, due to the use of formerly automatic receivers in the G-series. Post front and military tangent peep sights, with a long flash hider, bayonet lug, and adjustable gas port with grenade setting. The left side of the upper receiver is marked "F.A.L. cal. 7.62", and the matching numbered lower receiver has the "S/R/A" selector markings, with the "A" position disabled via pin. Matching numbers are also present on the bolt and bolt carrier. Fitted with a smooth plastic pistol grip and a fine hardwood forearm and buttstock set, with a tooled leather sling. Included with the rifle is a plain brown shipping box, three extra magazines, a FN Light Automatic Rifle manual with U.S./semi-auto insert, spare firing pin, gas port wrench, and a Hensoldt-Wetzlar scope fitted to a German made reinforced dust cover with a canvas covered case.

SIG-AMT Semi-Automatic Rifle
Estimated Price: $5,000 - $8,000
A semi-automatic commercial export model of the Swiss SG-510-4 battle rifle, the AMT (American Match Target) was imported in very small numbers by Benet Arms in the late 1960s-early 1970s. While intended to serve as a standard infantry rifle and using a number of sheet metal components, the SG-510 and its descendants maintained the Swiss tradition of precision and ruggedness being the top two priorities, resulting in a weapon system adopted abroad as a 'designated marksman' weapon and recognized as a high-tier semi-automatic target rifle. Post front sight and 600-meter range adjustable peep rear sight, with a bird cage flash hider on the threaded muzzle, swiveling bipod mounted at the front of the ventilated handguard, and a folding carry handle. The receiver is equipped with a "T" shaped cocking handle, flip-down winter trigger, "S/1" marked 2-position selector and "Benet Arms./S. F. Cal./94-4079" on the left side of the trigger group. Equipped with a ribbed plastic pistol grip and a fancy walnut forearm and buttstock, and a ribbed steel buttplate. Magazine not included.

John Stemple NFA/Class III Model 76/45 Submachine Gun in 45 ACP
Estimated Price: $3,000 - $5,000
This is a very close copy of the Smith & Wesson M76 submachine gun chambered in .45 ACP manufactured by John R. Stemple in Groveport, Ohio. Similar in design the British STEN and Swedish M-45 submachine guns. It is a blowback operated SMG with a round sheet metal tube receiver, machined bolt, fixed firing pin, and the barrel held in place via a perforated barrel jacket/barrel nut. This design is very convenient as the barrel jacket can be unscrewed so that you can quickly replace the barrel or even change it to another caliber. The magazine housing is marked "M76/45 JOHN R. STEMPLE/GROVEPORT OH./SN1107". Fixed front and rear sights, with a rubber covered folding wire frame type stock. It only has a notch/cutout on the right side of the receiver tube that acts as a safety to hold back the bolt handle. Magazine is absent.

Beretta Model PM12S Class III/NFA "Sales Sample" Submachine Gun
Estimated Price: $6,000 - $9,000
This is an excellent example of a very scarce Beretta PM12s 9 mm submachine gun. This is a fully automatic Class III/NFA "sales Sample" SMG, which is very rare to find in the U.S. as Beretta was usually very reluctant to sell SMGs outside of Italy due to the proliferation of small arms. This was developed by Beretta in the early 1960s, and was widely used by the Italian Carabinieri and the Italian State Police and later on in the 1970s on a limited basis by the Italian Air Force for use by the security guards. It also found great success in the Arab countries. They are an excellent, well made blowback operated SMG that has a unique bolt assembly that has dual sliding rails that extend up around the end of the barrel which has a conical breech face. The complete bolt actually encloses the end of the barrel, giving the weapon a very short overall compact length. The complete bolt and dual sliding rails appear to be stainless steel, making them easy to clean. It has dual pistol grips to aid in controlling the weapon during firing along with a dual safety mechanism; one safety is located on the left side that is actually the selector switch (R, I and S) with a second safety actually located on the front of the rear pistol grip. To load/cock the weapon you have to squeeze the pistol grip safety, which will also prevent accidental discharges if the weapon is dropped. It has a two position rear sight with an elevation adjustable post front sight. It is fitted with a side folding steel buttstock with a folding sheet metal buttplate. It comes with one stick magazine. The left side is stamped "P.M. Beretta MOD 12S-Cal. 9mm Parabellum F37430", and the right side is marked "MADE IN ITALY".

Swedish Carl Gustav M42 Recoilless Rifle with Scope, Case, Ammunition and Accessories, Class III/NFA Destructive Device
Estimated Price: $10,000 - $16,000
Developed between 1940 and 1942, the Gustav M42 represented a significant step forward in man-portable anti-tank weaponry. In operation, and in sharp contrast to other firearm designs, a significant amount of the gasses are vented directly out the back of the breech, providing an opposite (if not exactly equal) reaction to the action of the projectile being launched down the bore. While this results in a monstrous (and potentially fatal) 25 meter backblast, it also allows infantry to fire the weapon, and yields roughly 40mm of armor penetration at 100 meters. Built from rugged tubular steel, the weapon is equipped with a set of folding sights, a lace-on cheekpiece/carry handle assembly, leather shoulder pad and an auto-closing breech assembly. The breech end of the barrel is marked "1987", with matching numbers on multiple components, including a rail-mounted scope base that accepts the included Meoptra brand 4.5x scope, which is fitted with a quick-detach adjustable ring set and clamp-on back up iron sights. Also included with the rifle is a hardwood transport case with "1944" date stencil, leather slings, a canvas breech cover, a cleaning/maintenance kit in a roll-up case, snap-in monopod for prone firing, an English-language manual, firing logbook numbered to the rifle, one canvas field pouch, two ammunition cases, 3 spent casings, and two "46" dated live cartridges.

This is a very nice example of a late WWII US Army contract M3A1 SMG manufactured by the Guide Lamp Division of GM. These were developed in the 1941-1942 time frame as a wartime substitute for the Model 1928 Thompson SMG which although was a superb SMG proved to be costly to produce. This is a late production model that was manufactured originally as a "M3A1" SMG. The left side of the magazine well is marked "SUB-MACH. GUN/ CAL. 45 M3A1/Guide/Crossed Cannons (Ordnance proof)/U.S. NO 623442". As noted this late production model has the combination ejection port cover/safety on the right side. It has a fixed front and rear sight and is fitted with a retractable wire stock complete with an original oiler stored inside the rear pistol grip. There is a very small import mark of "INTER AMERICAN SAC.CA." on the left side behind the front sling loop. It does not come with any magazine.

World War II Johnson Arms Fully Automatic Class III/NFA “SALES SAMPLE” M1941 Light Machine Gun
Estimated Price: $15,000 - $25,000
This is a very good example of a very early production Johnson Arms Model 1941 Light Machine Gun (LMG). This model was heavily used by the USMC Raiders and Paramarines and later on by the 1st Special Services units. These early LMGs are a very rare item today as the majority of them were returned to either the USMC or the factory and converted into the later 1944/45 models with the improved designs. After WWII the majority were sold to foreign countries or simply destroyed as surplus to the demands of military. The earlier model worked extremely well in that it was light weight, easy to maneuver and handling and it used a larger 25 round detachable magazine with a quick change barrel exactly like the standard semi-automatic M1941 rifle. This example still retains the original steel bipod and it fires from and open bolt and it utilizes the unique side mounted magazine. The top of the receiver is marked with the five line patent information followed by "LIGHT MACHINE GUN/JOHNSON AUTOMATICS/CAL. 30-06/MODEL OF/MADE IN PROVIDENCE RI. U.S.A". Below that it is serial numbered 0468. This example has the distinctive high front sight with the fully adjustable folding rear sight, the one-piece wall walnut buttstock and short walnut forend. This desirable early LMG comes with one original 25 round magazine.

Colt Model 38B Medium Machine Gun with Cradle T&E Tripod and DLO Marked Side Plate
Estimated Price: $14,000 - $22,500
This is a desirable example of basically an updated commercial version of the original US M1917 water cooled machine gun, produced and sold by the Colt Firearms Company. The 1917 machine gun was developed towards the end of WWI and was used throughout the 1920s and 30s and eventually into WWII before being replaced by the air cooled 1919A4 machine gun. The "38B" was the commercial version of the 1917 machine gun as sold by the Colt Firearms Division after WWI, using Browning's original patent design. The Colt model was sold to some South American countries, primarily Argentina and even to Norway. This example has "D.L.O. Stamford CT." stamped on the underside of the side plate. The Colt model can be easily recognized by the large tubular water jacket on the outside of the barrel, (like the 1917 model) with the addition of a set of spade grips instead of the single pistol grip and they are equipped with a huge ladder rear sight (looks like a 1903 Springfield sight on steroids) that is graduated, 1-32 (100-3200 yards) with a single blade front sight. The side plate is marked "COLT AUTOMATIC MACHINE GUN/MODEL MG38B CAL .30" over Brownings Patent number and the Colt factory address over serial number "114720'. It is complete with a 1917A1 cradle, T&E mechanism, tripod and one cloth belt.

Known officially as the "Honor Weapon of the Political Leaders" and traditionally seen in the 850000-935000 and 174000k-234965k number ranges, PPK pistols with these special grips and holsters were presented to NSDAP officials for meritorious party service by Hitler. Fixed sights, with the Walther banner, two line address and patents, and "Mod.PPK" on the left side of the slide, commercial "eagle/N" proofs on the slide, chamber and muzzle, and matching numbers on the alloy frame and inside the slide. The brown plastic, one piece, wrap around grips are checkered and have the NSDAP eagle holding a wreath encircled swastika insignia cast on the top of the both sides. Included with the pistol are two magazines, one with a brown plastic finger extension and the other with a flat steel base, a brown leather holster with the Party Leader Eagle stamp on the top flap, "Walther/P.P.K." in blue ink inside the flap, "ZUNNO" hand marked on the interior, and the Albrecht Kind "D.R.G.M./(crossed rifles)/Akah" stamp on the lower flap beneath the strap. While not verified, a quick search shows more than one U.S. military man by the last name Zunno, suggesting a wartime bring-back marked by a GI more concerned about in-barracks theft than future collectors.

Estimated Price: $14,000 - $22,500
This is a super early first year production Colt "Government Model" 1911 type pistol manufactured in 1912. These early Colt Government pistols in any condition are extremely difficult to obtain as they saw heavy commercial use by law enforcement agencies at that time when first introduced. They were some of the best semi-automatic pistols that Colt ever produced. They have all hand fitted parts with the beautiful and very distinctive early Colt high polish commercial blue finish overall with the fragile nitre blue on the trigger, rear of the ejector, thumb safety, hammer and slide stop. They were fitted with a set of fine checkered walnut grips. This example has all the early features such as: early style Colt slide markings, narrow, rounded half-moon front sight, rounded rear sight with the small round sight cut, thin checkered thumb safety with the sharp edge, and milled undercuts, first pattern recoil spring guide, the early short checkered slide stop release, without the dimpled on the back side, the short horned grip safety and the early wide spur hammer with the fine, border-less checking. The right side of the slide is marked "COLT AUTOMATIC/CALIBRE 45", and the left side has the early two-line, two-block markings of: "PATENTED APR.20 1897/SEPT. 9 1902/DEC.19, 1905. FEB.14 1911" followed by "COLT'S PT. F.A. MFG. CO./HARTFORD, CT. U.S.A." with the Rampant Colt behind the slide serrations. The front left side of the frame is marked with the very rare, early first style Colt serial number (C891) with serifs, and "GOVERNMENT MODEL" is on the right side of the frame. The left trigger guard bow is stamped with the Colt "VP/Triangle" proofmark, and a "K" is stamped on the lower left part of the trigger guard. It is fitted with a later military contract barrel that is stamped with a single "S" and "P" on the left side of the lug. This super early Colt is complete with an early type 2 "Punch and Saw Cut" half-blued magazine that has the early indent on the top right side feed lip. It still has the early double pinned baseplate with the lanyard loop on the underside.

World War II Johnson Automatics Model 1941 Semi-Automatic Rifle with Bayonet
Estimated Price: $5,000 - $7,000
Scarce example of a M1941 Johnson semi-automatic rifles manufactured by the Cranston Arms Co. The rifle has the distinctive detachable 22 inch barrel, ventilated barrel shroud and ten-round rotary magazine. The receiver has a tangent style rear sight graduated in meters. The two-piece walnut stock is oil finished and has a checkered buttplate. The barrel, receiver, magazine, trigger guard and buttplate have a gray-green parkerized finish. The bright polished bolt is numbered "B6540". The face of the barrel collar is stamped with the caliber ".30 06" above the barrel and "41" below it. The top of the receiver is roll-stamped "CAL. 30-06 SEMI. AUTO./"JOHNSON AUTOMATICS"/MODEL OF 1941/MADE IN PROVIDENCE, R.I., U.S.A." over serial number "B1168". The patent markings are stamped in five lines between the factory legend and the rear sight. "CRANSTON/ARMS/CO." is stamped in an inverted triangle on the right rear of the receiver. A small five-pointed star used by Dutch inspectors is stamped above the Cranston marking. In August 1940, the Netherlands Purchasing Commission ordered 10,200 Johnson Automatic rifles to arm colonial troops in the Dutch East Indies. The Japanese invaded and captured the Dutch colonies in December 1941 before most of the Johnson Model 1941 rifles could be delivered. The U.S. Marine Corps tested the Johnson rifle in 1941 and, in early 1942, obtained a limited number of the Dutch contract Model 1941 rifles as a war expedient rifle until they could receive the Springfield M1 Garand rifle, with a few of these rifles issued to the 1st Parachute Battalion. This desirable rifle is complete with a bayonet.

U.S. Springfield M1903 Mark I w/Pedersen Device and Equipment
Estimated Price: $20,000 - $35,000
This is a rare example of a U.S. Springfield Armory 1903 Mark I rifle rig that includes the very rare 1918 Pedersen Device. This complete set consists of: 1) the Springfield M1903 Mark I rifle, 2) an original Pedersen Device (serial number 962), 3) an original Pedersen 40-round magazine, 4) one carton of 200 rounds of "CAL. 30 AUTO. PISTOL BALL CARTRIDGES MODEL OF 1918", specifically for the Pedersen Device, (5) two canvas magazine pouches, both marked "R.I.A./7-19", (6) a canvas bolt carrier pouch marked "R.I.A./1919" (designed to carry the 1903 bolt when the Pedersen device is installed), (7) a 1918 canvass belt marked "LONG 6-18", 8) a 1905E1 bayonet and scabbard marked SA/1918 and a WWI canteen and cover, and 9) a desirable reproduction combination installation /disassembly tool. This lot also includes a photocopy of the Ordnance Boards evaluation of this device in 1917/18, photocopies of the U.S. patent drawings of the Pedersen device. The M1918 device was designed by John Pedersen c. 1917 and was specifically designed to convert the 1903 bolt action rifle into a semi-automatic rifle by simply replacing the standard 1903 bolt with the Pedersen device and inserting one of the special magazines. This device utilized a low velocity, .30 caliber cartridge designed by Pedersen. His concept was to provide rifle-equipped infantryman with a weapon that produced a high volume of semi-automatic fire in the assault but retained the capability of providing long range firepower of a standard infantry rifle. The M1903 Mark I rifle had an oval ejection port in the left side of the receiver, special stock modified to accommodate the ejection port, special sear/trigger and modified magazine cut-off. Prior to installation of the Pedersen Device, the Mark I rifle fired the standard .30-06 cartridge and functioned exactly like a standard M1903 rifle. The Ordnance Department adopted the Pedersen Device in March 1918 and for security purposes designated it "AUTOMATIC PISTOL CALIBER 30, MODEL 1918". A total of 500,000 Pedersen Devices were eventually ordered from Remington Arms Co. About 65,000 devices had been delivered when WWI ended in November 1918. No Pedersen Devices were ever issued to troops in the field. Post-war evaluation of the Pedersen Device determined that it served no practical purpose. In April 1931, 64,873, Pedersen Devices and 60 million rounds of ammunition were destroyed. Very few Pedersen Devices and magazines escaped destruction or retention by government museums. The right side is marked: "REMINGTON-BRIDGEPORT/PEDERSEN'S PATENT" in two lines above the cocking serrations. The opposite side of the device is marked: "U.S.A. 1918-MARK I/972" in two lines. The magazine has a black parkerized finish. The Mark I rifle has a barrel marked "SA/10-18/A," and the complete rifle has a later all green parkerized finish. It has a later 1903A3 Remington marked bolt assembly. The receiver is fitted with the correct Pedersen Device magazine cut-off and screw. The stock is a correct WWI finger-groove stock with a boxed "EHD" and single "P" proof, and the handguard is a later WWII replacement.

Carl Gustav m/42: A 20mm Recoilless Antitank Rifle https://youtu.be/lHQfQPSlSHg
The Swedish Pansarvärnsgevär fm/42 made by the Carl Gustav company was an interesting early hybrid antitank weapon - a recoilless rifle firing solid armor-piercing projectiles. It used a 20x180mm case, propelling the 108g (1650gr) bullet at 950 m/s (3150 fps). This was capable of perforating 40mm of perpendicular armor plate at 100m (a high explosive projectile was also made). This was on the high end of armor penetration for anti-tank rifles, and the m/42 was able to do this with a weapon weighing just 11.7kg (25 lb) - less than a quarter of a comparable 20mm conventional rifle.

This was possible because of its recoilless design - upon firing, the rear end of the cartridge case would blow out and vent out the back of the weapon, instead of being firmly sealed like a conventional rifle. This created a counter balancing recoil impulse which prevented the gun and shooter from having to absorb the full recoil energy produced by a heavy bullet launching off at high velocity. The tradeoff was that much of the potential energy of firing was wasted venting out the back instead of pushing the bullet forward, which is why the cartridge case was so oversized.

About a thousand of the guns were made by the end of World War 2, at which time even it had been made quite thoroughly obsolete by the rapidly increasing thickness of tank armor. It would, however, be the stepping-stone to the m/48 Carl Gustav 84mm recoilless rifle, which used a shaped charge warhead to perforate armor with a stream of molten melt instead of relying on velocity of a hardened projectile.

The Heckler & Koch G11K2, 1989 Caseless Hyperburst Wonder
In May of this year, I got the rare opportunity to travel to Heckler & Koch’s headquarters in Ashburn, VA, to take a look at some of the experimental and prototype firearms they have located there in their famous “Grey Room”. It wouldn’t be worth as much for me to just tell you about it and to snap a few foggy cell phone pictures, though, so I brought along Othais of C&Rsenal to help me take high resolution light box photos of these unique and rare firearms.

Today we’ll be taking a look at one of Heckler & Koch’s most rare and iconic firearms: The caseless, hyperburst G11 rifle. This weapon was the result of a massive effort on the part of Dynamit Nobel and Heckler & Koch to develop a weapon that could fire advanced caseless ammunition at high rates of fire, a concept that – if perfected – would produce the most advanced and effective individual weapon ever developed in the world. The G11K2 variant, shown here, was the first of the “perfected” weapons, using the final ammunition iteration developed with its bullet fully telescoped into the combustible propellant block. http://www.thefirearmblog.com/blog/2016/09/16/firearm-showcase-heckler-koch-g11k2-1989-caseless-hyperburst-wonder-high-res-pics/

Unfortunately, financial difficulties caused by the fall of the Berlin Wall and the reconstruction and reintegration of East Germany forced the cancellation of the G11 and its innovative caseless ammunition. However, the design would get one last hurrah before finally riding off into the sunset…

The “weapon” we will be taking a look at today is not actually a weapon at all, but a wooden mockup of the XM29 Objective Individual Combat Weapon, which was a highly ambitious program to develop a transformative infantry weapon for the 21st Century. It combines a “Kinetic” unit (basically a short barreled G36) attached to the airburst grenade launcher and the large sighting system. The only real part of this mockup is actually the magazine, a standard grey USGI aluminum unit. The XM29 was eventually broken into two programs, which became the aborted XM8 carbine and the still in development XM25 Counter-Defilade Target Engagement weapon.

FAL Prototype .280/30
The first prototypes of the FAL rifle were produced by Fabrique Nationale on the company’s own initiative in the aftermath of World War II, and presented to the British government for testing in early 1947. Initial tests were made at the Enfield ranges in April of 1948, comparing the FN Carbine in 7.92×33 Kurz (later to evolve into the FAL) against a Sten gun, an M2 .30-cal Carbine, and a German MP44. The FN Carbine performed will in the testing (we will cover this rifle more extensively in a separate article later on), but the British government was looking for a cartridge larger than the German Kurz round. The result was the first FAL (Fusil Automatique Leger, or light automatic rifle).

This first FAL was chambered for the .280/30 cartridge, which was a compromise cartridge using the .280 (7mm) bore diameter believed ideal by the British at the time and the general case dimensions of the American T65 cartridge (which would become the 7.62×51 NATO). It fired a 140 grain bullet at 2400 fps, with the intention of being an intermediate cartridge that could be used accurately with full-auto shoulder fire. The rifle itself was remarkably similar to the final production versions of the FAL, differing only in details. The locking and operating mechanisms were well enough developed in the early design that they did not need to be changed throughout later development. https://www.forgottenweapons.com/m14-development/fal-prototype-28030/

Testing of this rifle took place in 1950 at Aberdeen Proving Grounds in Maryland,alongside the EM2 (also in .280/30 caliber) and the American T25, a development of the M1 Garand chambered for the T65 .30-caliber cartridge. The FAL performed well in testing, and was much admired by the British troops present. It also gained respect among the Americans for reliability. In fairness to the T25 rifle, the T65 ammunition used at the trials was an experimental batch and had consistency problems which led to malfunctions in the T25.

There were three written American objections to the .280 FAL, and one unwritten. The written complaints were its low velocity, poor arctic performance, and small bullet volume. The low velocity was deliberate to improve automatic fire accuracy, but the Americans were concerned that when firing at 700 yards the bullet would be 8 feet high at 400 yards, thus entirely missing a target at that distance. The British counterpoint to this was to note that the declared maximum range of the round was 600 yards. Considering the USSR as the most anticipated enemy at the time, arctic combat was a more significant concern than today, and low temperatures would only exacerbate the trajectory issues claimed by the American observers. Finally, the US military had a stated need for tracer and observation (explosive) cartridges for its infantry rifle, and it was claimed that the 7mm bore was too small to contain enough material to make effective projectiles of these types (later experience would prove this claim wrong). The major unwritten objection to the FAL was that it was not an American development. The head of the US Ordnance R&D, Colonel Rene Studler, was fundamentally unwilling to adopt a foreign rifle design.

Unfortunately, a major opportunity to reach a compromise was lost when the American and British delegations came to different understandings of the testing results. The British came away with the understanding that the .280 cartridge needed further development, while the American take-away was that the .280 was fundamentally unsound.

Colt m1878 Philippine Model. 1917 ammo is for a 1911.. but it gives the image a little more pop. Poetic license :)

In 1902, 4,600 Model 1878 revolvers were produced for a U.S. Army contract. They were intended to equip the Philippine Constabulary under Brigadier General Henry T. Allen in the Philippine Insurrection. These revolvers had a 6 inch barrel, a hard rubber grip, and were chambered for the .45 Colt round. They had a strengthened main spring and a longer trigger to give the user more leverage, resulting a larger trigger guard. " The strengthened main spring was necessary to fire the .45 Government rounds with a less sensitive primer compared to the civil .45 LC ammunition. Many people have incorrectly assumed that this was to allow the revolver to be operated while wearing gloves, so "Alaskan Model" is a misnomer. http://spaxspore.deviantart.com/gallery/46542452/Miltary-Surplus-Firearms

Charles Lancaster howdah pistols
The Howdah pistol was the ‘last line of defence’ for a hunter high on top of an elephant whilst hunting tiger. If a Tiger was to charge the elephant and climb up to attack the people occupying the Howdah there was little room in which to defend oneself at the last moment, it was likely that the muzzle loading long arm had been discharged by this time.. Hence the Howdah pistol the short barrel, large bore firearm that could be drawn and manoeuvred in tight space, providing a killing blow, or in the case of this pair 4 barrels, 4 killing blows.

This pair is quite unique and the condition is remarkable, all the accessories down to spare springs numbered for each lock. One of the oil bottles even has the seal unbroken and contains the very oil filled with 150 years ago, quite remarkable! https://www.theexplora.com/charles-lancaster-a-pair-of-rare-and-unique-howdah-pistols/

Napoleon’s last gift to his son: wee dueling pistols
Napoleon was by all reports a loving father to his only child, his son with Marie Louise of Austria Napoleon François Charles Joseph Bonaparte, styled at birth the King of Rome, a modified version of the traditional title, King of the Romans, granted to all heirs apparent of the Holy Roman Empire. The last time Napoleon saw his little King of Rome was in the middle of the night of January 24th, 1814, at the palace of Saint Cloud. He said his goodbyes to his wife and son before heading to the north of France to fight the encroaching Allied forces. http://www.thehistoryblog.com/archives/37168

If the Roi de Rome received a goodbye present from his father, it may well have been a present his father commissioned for his son’s upcoming third birthday in March. Napoleon ordered a pair of bespoke dueling pistols from gunsmith to the French monarchs Jean Le Page. Made of blue steel with walnut and ebony stocks and inlaid with gold, the guns were custom-made to fit a young boy’s hands. Engraved on the lock of the pistols is the fateful production date, Janv. (January) 1814.

Whether the Roi de Rome received his last present from his father is not known. The pistols remained behind as Napoleon’s empire fell completely apart in a matter of weeks and he was compelled to abdicate under pressure from the Allies, first in favor of his son, and then in favor of nobody. Technically the King of Rome’s pistols were now the property of the newly restored Bourbon King of France Louis XVIII, but the new king wasn’t all that keen to keep a tight grip on the previous throne-holder’s stuff.

German Maxim 08/15 Machine Gun – This water cooled, belt fed, 8mm full auto machine gun weighs 40 pounds dry. The 08/15 was the most produced German machine gun of WWI with over 130K having been manufactured. The name 08/15 stands for the Maxim Model of 1908 that was modified to be a light machine gun in 1915 using many of the same components. Sadly the legacy of the 08/15 lives on in the German language as an idiom. “Null-acht-fünfzehn"- something that is messed up and doesn’t make much sense.

The Worst Pistol Ever: Type 94 Nambu http://www.thefirearmblog.com/blog/2013/10/31/worst-pistol-ever-type-94-nambu/
Worst pistol you can buy
Underpowered and anemic cartridge
Ugly as sin
Dangerous as can be (exposed sear that looks designed for accidental firing)
Tiny grip
Finding ammo is a problem (8mm Nambu is an extinct and obsolete cartridge, but the reviewer did manage to find a company online that produces it by resizing .40 S&W brass)
Incredibly difficult to take apart for cleaning

Aside from its appearance, what makes this thing so bad? The fatal flaw is that this gun has an exposed sear… that when pressed fires the gun. That’s right, if you press the side of the gun it will fire.

This gun could, in theory, go off when holstered, handling it, handing it off to someone, etc. There are stories of Japanese officers handing the pistol over when “surrendering” and then pressing the sear bar to get off one last suicide shot. I have not been able to confirm any of these stories or find anything official, but it is very possible.

Walther PPK "22LR" Pistol with Custom "SS" Slide Inscription
This is an example of a commercial production Walther PPK that is chambered in the very desirable 22LR cartridge, that has the 60 degree safety. These PPK pistols chambered in 22LR were produced on a very limited basis through out WWII. This specific pistol is an early prewar production piece that has the single Crown "N" commercial proofs on the top of the slide directly behind the ejection port and the chamber area of the barrel and which also has a "SS" type slide inscription (spuriously applied) on the right side of the slide, along with a raised small silver Nazi spread wing Eagle insignia affixed to the right side of the black grips. The left side of the matching slide has the standard "WALTHER" name inside the banner next to the standard two line factory markings with "Cal. 22" at the end with "PPK" behind the factory markings. The right front side of the slide has been panograph marked ""EHRENPREIS ZUM/ Reichspistolenschiessen/derSS1939", a loose translation is "First Prize for German Pistol Shooting, From the SS 1939". As noted the right side grip panel has a silver German Army/Nazi type spread wing eagle mounted in a raised black plastic base that is shaped or conforms to the outer edge of the Eagle that has been affixed the grip itself. The detail of the Eagle is fairly good which may indicate that it was a breast pin of some type that was later attached to the grip. https://www.rockislandauction.com/detail/52/3526/walther-ppk-22lr-pistol-with-custom-ss-slide-inscription

Walther Model PPK Party Leader Semi-Automatic Pistol
Estimated Price: $11,000 - $16,000
This is an excellent example of a Walther Mod. PPK pistol with the highly desirable Party Leader grips. Officially known as the "Honor Weapon of the Political Leaders", the PPK pistols with these special grips were presented to NSDAP officials for meritorious party service by the Fuhrer. The pistol has a high-polish blue finish. The brown plastic one-piece wrap around grips are checkered and have the NSDAP eagle holding a wreath encircled swastika insignia cast on the top of the both sides. The pistol has a side magazine release, lanyard staple at the bottom of the frame, 60 degree safety lever, and cartridge indicator pin. The blue magazine has a brown plastic finger extension and is marked with the Walther banner on the lower left side. Pre-war commercial "crown/N" proofmarks are stamped on the right side of the slide below the ejection port and on the right side of the barrel at the chamber and muzzle. The serial number is marked vertically on the right side of the frame behind the trigger. The left side of the slide is marked with the Walther Banner followed by the factory legend and caliber in two lines and the designation "Mod. PPK.". The 173,000K-180,000K range of PPKs has perhaps the largest concentration of Party Leader PPKs. https://www.rockislandauction.com/detail/71/1426/walther-model-ppk-party-leader-semi-automatic-pistol#detail
