C475 - Deactivated WW2 Russian Tokarev SVT-40
The SVT-40 (Samozaryadnaya Vintovka Tokareva) the Tokarev Self-loading Rifle, Model of 1940. It was a gas operated weapon that was an improved version of the SVT-38, used in the Winter War with Finland. It was in widespreaad use by the time of the German invasion of Russia in 1941 and was respected and often used by the German forces to such a large extent that the Wehrmacht gave the rifle their own official designation SIG.259(r). Whilst the majority of Soviet soldiers would use the more basic ppsh-41 the SVT-40 was used with much sucess by the elite well trained Soviet Sea Infantry.

This excellent example is in excellent condtion and is 1940 dated with a German Waffenamt stamp. The blue and the woodwork are in very good condition and it is supplied with a mount and rare original 1942 dated sniper scope, with the Hammer and Sickle emblem. It is deactivated to current specifications, but with fully moving trigger and cocking handle.

WW2 German G43 Sniper rifle

A92 - Old Spec WW2 German G43 sniper rifle
A highly sought after WW2 German Gewehr 43 (G43) semi-automatic rifle, with ZF4 scope and mount.

Introduced in 1943, the G43 was the German's first serious attempt at a standardized mass produced semi-automatic sniping rifle, fitted with an integral scope rail, that would replace the K98. It was based upon the earlier Gewehr 41 designed by Walther, but with elimination of the design flaws around the gas system, utilizing a system based on the Russian Tokarev SVT-40.

This example AC coded for Walther manufature, marked G43 and dated 1944. The gun is Waffenamt stamped with its original blue and fine dark wood laminate stock. Some of the late G43 rifles were not finished to a high standard, but this example has a very fine finish, with a miled and polished receiver with no crude casting marks. It is fitted with the correct ZF4 scope which is manufactured by dow, Opticotechna GmbH. It has very good clear optics and the not commonly encountered green triangle for use in a hot climate. The gun has been deactivated to old specifications and to a very high standard. It has a full working action, so it can be fully cocked and dry fired.


J20 - 1917 Austro-Hungarian Steyr M95 Rifle with boxed rounds

J20 - 1917 Austro-Hungarian Steyr M95 Rifle with boxed rounds
M95 Mannlicher Repetier-Gewehr, the standard infantry rifle of the Austro-Hungarian Forces in WWI, a straight-pull bolt action weapon in it’s original WW1 8x50mm calibre, not a post-war modernised 8x56mm version. This example is in good condition and is an early deactivation dating from 1992. The breech is marked Steyr M.95 so this is an Austrian rather than Hungarian manufactured gun. Ahead of this is an Imperial Austrian double-eagle marking and the number ‘17’ for 1917. The bolt is non-matching which is usual for weapons that have seen a lot of service-use, but all other parts look to be original. The wood is in good condition with only minor bruising. The bluing is in good age-darkened condition with no corrosion. The weapon can be stripped, cocked and dry-fired and comes complete with a boxed 1930s dated pack of the slightly longer 8x56mm inert rounds with Nazi markings. The gun is still in it’s original WW1 8x50mm configuration but will receive and eject the 1930s 8x56 clip. A very nice original gun complete with display rounds.


US 1918 dated P17 rifle

I261 - 1918 dated US P17 / M1917 cal .30 rifle
A really nice example of the 'American Enfield' rifle. Manufactured in .30-06 caliber for US troops serving in the First World War it was both very strong and accurate. The gun was still issued to US rear-echelon and artillery troops in the second world war and also saw use by British home guard units. This example is manufactured in 1918 by Eddystone. It is in very good condition, with the correct adjustable sights, original blue and good woodwork with only minor knocks and dents from service use.

Matching WW1 T-Gewehr Anti-Tank Rifle with 13mm Round

J21 - Matching WW1 T-Gewehr Anti-Tank Rifle with 13mm Round
A German First World War 13.2mm M1918 T-Gewehr anti-tank rifle and original inert round, now one of the rarest and most sought-after WW1 weapons. Known to soldiers as the Elefant-Gewehr due to its enormous size and powerful round, this was the first anti-tank weapon ever developed. Only around 17,000 were made before the end of the war and many of those were destroyed under the Treaty of Versailles. Operated by a two-man tank-killer team, the massive recoil was hard on its crew but the 900m/s hardened steel-core rounds could punch through any WW1 tanks armour at over 200m.

This example is a very early gun, the low serial number dates it to Spring 1918 around the time of the German ‘Michael’ Offensive. All numbers right down to the screws are matching, only the bolt is a non-match as bolts wore out very fast, and even this is a very close number to the gun itself and almost certainly a replacement from the same issue batch. This is one of the small number of early guns with a blued receiver, the work being carried out by unit-armourers to make the gun less visible on the battlefield. The metal is in very good condition with an attractive aged deep blue-brown patina and only occasional faint traces of light surface pitting. The woodwork has the usual dents and marks from service-use but is in good strong condition. It still has the clearly visible painted on capture-markings of the Lancashire Regiment the gun was issued to at the war’s end. The gun comes complete with an original 1918 dated 13.2mm T-Gewehr bullet. The round is inert with a struck primer, original examples are almost as scarce as the guns themselves.

These weapons are classed as obsolete calibre by the UK Home Office and so this gun is sold live as a collector’s item and requires no certificate to own. The gun comes with an original and correct WW1 MG08/15 bipod with Imperial stamp. The mechanism works perfectly and will still chamber and eject the inert round the gun is sold with. The photo with the G98 (not on sale) is to give an indication of the guns huge size. Rare to find and even rarer in such good condition with an original 13mm round, this is a once only opportunity. The gun is a consignment item and due to the high value of this gun the seller would accept a part-exchange for one of the following: a German WW1 Minenwerfer, Granatenwerfer, pre-1916 Vickers or a St Etienne machine gun. Other part-exchanges considered.

RJ65 - 100% Matching, Unit Marked Museum Quality Mauser G71/84 Rifle
A fantastic mint condition German Gewehr 71/84 rifle in obsolete 11mm Mauser calibre. This was the rifle developed for the German army after the Franco-Prussian war and was the first magazine-fed rifle ever issued to the German army, having an 8-round tubular feed beneath the barrel. It was still in use with German Landwehr forces in the First World War. Dated 1887, the gun has matching numbers throughout including the bolt.

The gun is in 11mm Mauser a calibre designated obsolete by the UK Home Office and can be owned live without a licence. Genuinely impossible to improve on and the best condition 71/84 we have ever seen, an historic rifle in mint museum-quality condition.
