The collecting of Military Firearms has been on going since they were first used in battle. The vanquished relinquished and the victorious collected. Small arsenals of trophy guns, swords and armor were put on display at King's Palaces and Governor's Mansions as a sign of power and ruling authority. We see the same displays today in Arms Museums. Is it any wonder that the practice of Arms Collecting is alive and well in the imbibed psyche of Modern Man. Arms Collecting today is a reach into our past to quench a desire to own a piece of history or still perhaps to display the power of the ages. Below is a small selection of my inventory offered for that quest.

We just got in a very excellent WWII 1903-A3 Remington Military US Rifle .30-06 caliber with all Remington marked parts, proper bolt and Remington stock. The stock is marked with FJA, crossed cannons and P proof. The barrel is marked 9-43 date and is of the two groove type. This was the standard bolt action rifle that the United States Army and Marines went to war with in 1941 and was gradually replaced with the US M1 Garand. Based on the bolt action Mauser system the rifle was developed by the Springfield Arsenal in 1903, used during the First World War and modified for use in WWII by Remington under contract with the US Army. This serial number is 41420xx and the barrel was made in September of 1943. By this time this rifle may have only saw service as a guard duty rifle in the States, hence its excellent condition. Use your own judgment of condition from our photos. We rate this as extremely fine to mint condition. The price is

Luger 1937 S/42 Nazi Marked
HS 2423 - World War Two P-08 Nazi Lugar, 9mm, 1937 with code S/42 for Mauser Mfg. This is an exceptional condition gun but as has happened many times when two guns were taken apart side by side they were put back together with the wrong pieces. The # 8612 complete slide was put back on the # 3122 frame and the 8612 magazine installed into that. Use your own imagination as to how this occurred ... two GI's were cleaning the guns when word of an attack was coming ... quick scramble .... who knows? Both the guns were in the same fine condition and probably same vintage; who has its reverse twin? But at the time, who cared? The straw color on this early pre-war gun is nearly all intact, the only wear is from the holster on high edges. The Nazi marks are eagle over 63, the wood grips are sharp and excellent; overall a 97-98% gun. A very fine WW II collectable and if you have its twin, a real steal at our price of

Erfurt WWI Era P-O8 Luger
P-O8 Luger by Erfurt, 1917 date on top of chamber, and "Crown /Erfurt" on toggle. All matching numbers #658x except wood base on magazine has #549x. This is a standard military pistol brought back by a World War One vet. It is well marked, tight, crisp but does show exterior wear to finish, approximately 50 to 60% of blue remains. Original wood grips are sound but a bit loose and show wear. Most of these guns that were not true "veteran bring backs" were reworked and re-issued - this one was not.

S/42 Luger "G" Date P-O8
P-O8 Luger with "G" date on receiver for 1935 and S/42 for Mauser manufacture on the toggle. This is a fine WWII period Nazi marked Luger but, unfortunately it is mismatched, but not in the usual common circumstance. This is two guns that were probably side by side and now have the complete top of one and the complete bottom of another and with the matching magazine. Somewhere out there is the reverse twin to the one we have here. Who has it? If it is you this one is a bargain. The "G" date is fairly rare and this one is numbered 6406, in 9mm, with 4" barrel. You can see the proof marks in the thumb nails. Fine condition overall, only traces of straw color and the front grip strap is marked "S.L.G.I. 303". The grips are excellent but show some wear. The frame is serially numbered 7776 g, as is the magazine, with 655 Proof on the aluminum base. Safety and take-down pin are marked #76. This has been in my own collection for some time but I've finally got to start paring down. A Curio or FF License is required to purchase HS-1968. Not a recent import as on most other sites but a true blue World War II trophy bring back. I have this priced at

This is an exceptional condition WWI period Military Luger in 9mm that was brought back by a victorious Doughboy from "over there." This has been in my own collection for years and is now available for someone else to enjoy. A FFL or Curio License is required. It will be difficult to find a better World War One Luger than this and I have this one reasonably priced at just

The Chrysanthemum has been ground and polished and the remainder of action is in the original blue black finish and in excellent condition.

All parts are intact except front sight and stock parts. The rear sight is graduated 3 to 15 meters but appears to be wrong for this gun, should be a shorter sight. It is not sweated to barrel and can simply be removed by hand. The bolt has a plum style knob and has matching 728 to serial number on receiver, the safety knob is polished smooth. Receiver has the stacked cannonball design of the Kokura Arsenal and 24th series character preceding serial number 62728. This complete barreled action T99 Jap is priced at

Springfield 1903 US .30 Cal. Rifle
This is the classic WWI Springfield US Military 1903 Bolt Action Rifle in .30-06 caliber. This gun has a barrel date of 4-18 and is serial #857068. It has the standard 24" barrel which still retains about 99% original blue, as does the remaining metal parts. The case hardened receiver has grayed with age and is in excellent condition. The walnut stock has been glass drawn smooth and finished probably by some energetic GI somewhere back in time. The only visible stock marking is a "7" below trigger guard. The bore is fine but does show a little use in firing at the German trench lines. This is a fine overall condition gun good for many more years of use or a prominent wall display. Old original guns are getting scarce and we have this one priced at

German Mauser M98 Nazi Rifles
Here are three German Model 98 military rifles spanning World War One to WWII. The top is a K98 8mm Dated 1938 with a S/237 mfg. code on front of receiver. The gun is in fine condition and the stock number matches the serial number of 4629. The underneath of the barrel front has an import mark designating it came from Germany. It appears that this was refurbished and the bolt and trigger grouping was machine stenciled with #4629 over prior numbers. The bore is excellent as is the metal bluing and wood. The Nazi emblems on the original Third Reich acceptance stamps have been punched out, de-Nazifying the gun for later re-use after the war. I believe this particular rifle may have been one used by the Russians or East Germans as it was their practice to punch out the swastika. Still a collectable, a definite piece of the historic puzzle, a fine shooter or excellent re-enactment piece. ... FFL is required, (HS-2017) priced at
The middle Mauser is also a Model K98 8mm that is dated 1944 with "dou" code and is a Veteran trophy of the Second World War. The bolt and trigger group have matching numbers to the serial number of 2976. The metal is fine, the front barrel band does not match. Nazi Waffen proofs on metal. The stock is excellent and with the late model year does not have the bolt takedown assist. This is a fine collector rifle or re-enactment piece in overall excellent condition. We have this priced at

... is a personal firearm but still requires a FFL.
The bottom rifle is the longer Model Gew 98 from the First World War and is the standard 8mm Mauser cartridge. This gun started life in "Amberg 1917" and the top of the receiver is so marked. After use in WWI the Third Reich saw fit to re-issue this piece, probably prior to WWII, in the 1930's and it was arsenal inspected, Nazi acceptance stamps added for Army approval and refurbished or inspected by the code S/42G for WWII use. It is in fine condition. A personal gun with an old import mark but FFL still required and we have this priced at
