I had a pair of Mosins and two spam cans of ammo for years. When the price had tripled on them I let them go to fund an AR project(s).

Beautiful weapons all, thanks for sharing.

Some Lugers, they include early commercial, pre WW1, WW1 army, Weimar era Police and Commercial, WW2 Army, Navy, Police and Commercial(Mauser Banners). All are matching with 90-95% original finish (except for a couple that are finish challenged). I'm a little fish in the sea of serious Luger collectors, have no focus, but try to pick up condition when I come across one and can afford it. Still missing 3 dates from the ww2 era, one of those is prohibitive because of cost, the other 2 because of lacking condition. I haven't sought any of these out, they're just ones that have crossed my path over the last 40 years.

The MAPF/Unique pistols are probably the highest-quality Rubys you can find. The "Manufacture d'Armes des Pyrénées Françaises" in Hendaye was located only about 50 miles from Eibar, in the Basque country on the French side of the border, and was actually founded in the 1920s by José Uria and the Arenas brothers, arms makers who had migrated from the Spanish side.

The rough hand-fitting of the WW I period was past, and unlike Eibar the company also escaped the turmoil of the Spanish Civil War, produced through the Nazi occupation, and finally closed in 2001, at least according to the rather sparse Wiki page which only exists in French and the Basque language.

"Les armes Unique furent vendues aux tireurs sportifs, aux chasseurs, mais aussi à l'Armée française, aux polices municipales, à la Police nationale, aux Douanes, à l'ONF et aux officiers de la Wehrmacht."

It's kinda cute how they stamped the caliber and the magazine capacity (9 SCHUSS means 9 shots) on the grip panel.

Here's an interesting non typical WWII pistol that was favored by the Nazi SS because of it's caliber of 9MM Kurtz / 380. The CZ 24 was made by the Czechs from 1924 (hence the name) until 1940. They were never restamped for the Nazis and only bear the Czech proofs. This one was made in 1938 and has it's original Czech holster which was modified by the Nazis, along with a second magazine.

First, a No1 MkIII* built at Lithgow in Australia in 1943. It was rebuilt in 1951.

Second is a No4 Mk1 that visited all three UK production facilities at some time in its life. The receiver is a BSA Shirley piece, indicated by M47/C, the completed rifle has a Maltby serial number, implying assembly there, and finally it was converted to Mk2 standard in 1952 at Fazakerley.

1943 Femaru built under Nazi occupation with copy of bringback papers.
Rough shape. Looks like it's been through a war.

Here's a 1942 S&W Victory US Navy model. It's the only one I have a picture of at the moment



I also have an unmarked 1942 S&W Victory shipped to the United States Maritime Commission 1939 Mauser Luger, a 1895 Nagant pistol dated 1944, a Mosin Nagant M-44 rifle.

From WWI I have a well used Steyr M95 carbine. The story goes with this one that a friend of mine had a great uncle in the Great War who was a U.S. ambulance driver and picked this one up on the side of the road.

Nice Victory rig. Those Navy marked shoulder holsters are hard to come by.

1943 Ithaca 1911A1. Only World War II firearm I own. I bought off GB about seven years ago. All original and matching, no arsenal rebuild marks, etc. Assume it was probably a "bring back" as the seller said it came from an estate where he purchased an entire collection of Winchester rifles and two military .45s came with the deal.

Holster is a reproduction one from a company in Texas. Picture included of a WWII KaBar, US Navy MkII.

Here's a another Mauser HSC 7.65 pistol with the harder to find WaA 655 stamp. Some times just the smallest proof stamp can make all the difference to collectors. Thus, one has to be aware of faked guns.

You guys are killing me. And oh well the weather is supposed to be crappy tomorrow. Guess I will dig in the safe and pull out my old relics. I don't have any pics anyway and they could use a wipedown.

WWI 1916 Luger, all original and number matching. Stamping on front strap shows it was assigned to 2nd Machine Gun Company, Infantry Regiment 158. This was a Prussian regiment, originally, “7.Lothringisches Infanterie=Regiment, established on 31 March 1897 in Paderborn, Germany. At the outbreak of the Great War, the 158th was assigned to the 13th Infantry Division, VII Corps, 2nd Army. In March, 1915 the 158th was transferred to the 50th Division and remained with them until the end of the war.

The combat record of the 158th is very interesting. It was part of the Imperial German element that invaded Belgium fighting in both Champagne and Artois prior to its transfer to the 50th Infantry Division. After joining the 50th, the 158th fought in Verdun-Vaux, Argonne, Aisne, St. Quentin, Aisne, Rheims, Meuse and was in the Meuse area at the Armistice.

What a wonderful thread. Can't believe it hadn't been rated...Just gave it a 5 star!! You guys are giving me a real education. I have a couple of guns to post, but don't have photos handy right now.

Some of you, like Cyrano, for example, need to be writing textbooks on this stuff....or maybe you already have?

Anyway, great thread, and keep them coming!!!!

Best Regards, Les

Top shelf is a mixture, to many to list individually!!! Can't
really see the Lahti in the corner. The 38H has new grips
and mag, but otherwise in excellent shape. The Remington 51
doesn't really go there, but it seems happy.
The lower shelf is all Mausers, including the K Date Luger and
BYF43 P38.

Here is a picture of a British WW2 Lanchester Mark 1* that I bought. I took this picture after it arrived and was unpacked at my local Class 3 dealer. Most Lanchesters were made by Sterling, but mine is one of the scarce ones made by W.W. Greener. I'm still waiting for the transfer paperwork to be approved. I waited 9 months for my son. I hope I don't have to wait that long for my Lanchester.

The WW2 revolver I would most treasure is the Smith & Wesson revolver that my father carried. When his ship was sunk by a German U boat in the North Atlantic, the only things he saved were the clothes on his back and his Smith & Wesson revolver. Unfortunately, my mother sold the gun after he passed away.

Here is the closest I have. It is a Winchester model 94 carbine dated June 1942. It is 4 serial numbers away from a known PCMR carbine. Mine stayed state side but does fall in to war time production.

I just picked this one up the other day. A BYF 44 P-38 with the Eagle F stamp which designated Police (Gestapo), a hard to find P-38.
Unfortunately it has been refinished a long time ago so I got it cheap.

These are very cool guns from WWII and not over priced (yet) The Czech CZ 27 in 7.65 (32 ACP) This one is pretty late war 1944 late probably. The finish is Phosphate and hardly any time has been spent to polish the finish.

I have been watching this thread since it started. There are some really cool collections out there. Great Job! So, I thought I'd add mine...

WWI
Colt M1909 Ok, technically not WWI.
Colt M1917
Smith & Wesson M1917
British Webley Mk IV, has been shaved for .45acp.
Remington P17
Springfield Armory 1903 Mark 1 Dated Nov '18. Has all the correct Mark 1 parts. Looks to be original.

I mentioned in a previous post that i had a 1943 Ithaca 1911A1
then a 1943 Garand and a 1943 Springfield 1903A3 and today I looked up my Saginaw SG M1 carbine and it too was made in 1943. That's four U.S. military firearms that were bought in different shops and in one case a different state and all made in 1943. And Bushmaster 1313 posted a pic of his 1943 1911A1 and mine 1911A1 is 6800 serial numbers below his. Go figure. And the Garand and M1 carbine are blue sky imports from South Korea. Truly boggles the mind. Frank

WWII Thompson M1A1 with 1927 lower. I assembled it that way because that was how I carried one in Vietnam.

Colt-made 1921 - 1928 Navy Overstamp. Marked "U.S. Navy"
Post Your WWI and WWII Firearms-colt-1921-28-navy-overstamp-jpg

I have a M1 Garand, currently in the hands of one of our children.
And a Short Magazine Lee Enfield which I must have loaned to someone because it isn't in my safe and I don't have a pic.
