Hi Paul , Here are the pictures you asked for ...I took a few single shots as well as the group pictures. Originally I only collected WW2 Firearms but , I ended up running into some deals I could not walk away from . You know how THAT works .

The G43 with a ZF4 Scope is all matching and came with the orig manual and spare parts in the butt stock. I found it ( and the K98 with a ZF41 scope) in a Pawn shop in Denver back in 1978 ...$600.00 for both Rifles , those days are long gone huh? :D

I picked this late war K43 up this year ...the vets son had it and a late war Kreigs model K98 that his Dad brought home . In 1945 , his dad's unit found a Train's Boxcar with crates of brand new weapons. He took this and the Kreigs model. This K43 has no side rail on it

WOW... that and a G43 for 600?!?! I do not even know many thousands of dollars the pair would go for today!!!

Paul

And how ! I can't believe how fast these went up in value. They were together in a pawn shop ...someone had just sold them to the guy and he was not even sure what the G43 was ..I bought them really fast. That K98/ZF41 is all matching and in wonderful condition

Thanks Paul ---Mike

Yes,it looks like you have strayed a bit away from WWII weapons. What a great collection. Thanks for posting.

Thanks BYF ...Four years ago I met a local old-timer who just won a round with Cancer. He had a nice Collection and but selling it all off. I ended up with a nice Trapdoor, a 1900 Krag , 2- 1903's, a P-17, an H&R Garand and an M1 Carbine , 2 Mausers, a Lend Lease Enfield and 1-Jap 99 carbine ..all for $2,900.00 ! For that money ...I decided to "broaden" my collection a little. Besides , when I setup Public displays ..the spread of US Inf weapons comes in handy. It's nice showing the "evolution" of the US Infantry Rifle ..the Vet's like it. The deals are still out there but , it's getting harder to find them.

The Uzi,Sterling,Semi Thompson, Semi Mac 11 ,M1A etc are all my plinkers ...plinkers are a good thing :jumping:

Is that a Thompson I see with the round magazine???!! :love:

Hi Darrell ...Yes , that's one of them . I have 2 semi Thompson's and (I think) 4 -"L" drums and one "C" Drum ...the only problem is , because of our work schedule ...I have not had time to visit a range for 3 years now :( I hope this summer I'll be able to.

Mike,

If you're still unsure of what to do with your odds & ends, I think I could find a nice home for them in Arizona. wink wink :P

Nice catch. Really nice.

I know, the low humidity down there'd be good for them but ... ;)

Do we see the tail end of Ma Deuce by the Tech Sarges left sleeve?

Like to see more pix.

A super collection! I too enjoy WWII small arms from all participants.
