Ha, I took most of them off for the photo but forgot the G41(W) at the end. Safe storage is key to not having my grandkid shoot me.

Yes sir, tough one to find in Canada. I collect mainly Axis infantry weapons, firearms, ex-firearms, mortars, land mines, grenades etc.

I think all I am missing in the long arms (except the weird late war bush pigs like the vk-98) are an FG42, G41(M) and an MP38. I still hold out hope for the latter two arriving.

Back row L>R: LP08 with Trommel Drum, MP44, MP40, G33/40, FP30, Type-99, Type-38, K43, MP41, MP28/II, M38, K98, No4Mk1*, M41, PF60, M95/s, K98, MP36ö, G41(W), C96 Red 9, M30, MG42
Middle Row L>R: P08 S/42, P08, 3 x manufacturers of P38, PPK, Type-14
Front row: PzSchk54, MG34

Got an 1893 Erfurt Commission Rifle sporter. Would that do for this thread? And, it keeps saying the pictures are too big.

Besides those guns Walther produced for combat, the factory made superb presentation firearms that were used as gifts to friends and important persons. This finely engraved gold finished Walther PP was presented by an RAD unit in Thüringen to Generalarbeitsführer Karl Schmückle during a Christmastime celebration in Zella-Mehlis according to the engraved presentation plate and documentation from the period Zella-Mehlis newspaper.

My two wartime Astras, paid for but never delivered to the Reich.

A 1944 Model 300 in 7.65mm

and 1945 600/43 in 9mm Luger, seen here with a probable West German holster dated 1955, likely making it one of the guns resold to the Germans after the war.

Neither pistol has Waffenamts. Both were part of the Reich’s contracts with Astra but prevented from being delivered by the fall of Vichy.

Although not an Axis-era pistol, today I took possession of a 1951 Astra 3000 in 7.65mm, a former Hamburg police pistol. The 3000 was based on the 300, sporting a relocated magazine release and loaded chamber indicator.

Kar98a, 1918 Erfurt with no postwar markings. Remarkably accurate rifle.

Haven't posted in quite awhile. Someone asked about Johnson LMGs - this is my semi-auto Johnson 1941 - made by an erratic and now dead gunsmith who was quite unreliable when alive - unfortunately owned me a lot at his death - which I will never see.
