WW2 Dug up Relics - rare guns dropped in battle and almost lost forever:


WW2 rifles, pistols and machine guns, dropped and lost in battle, genuine historical battlefield guns:

Here we have our selection of WW2 dug up relics - all dropped in action, frozen in time and thought lost forever. Some bear the scares of action - the DP28 is the best example of that, with shell/mortar damage cleary ripping through the gun in period action. These have all been dug up in the battlefields of the Courland Pocket - a bloody siege from June `44 to May `45 where the battered German North Army Group lead by Field Marshal Shoerner having failed at the siege of Lenningrad, then in turn were cut off by advancing Red Army firces and held in siege for almost a year. Both armies tore each other apart and the guns we have here we all dropped and lost in this major WW2 battle. None of these are deactivated Guns as time, mud and water have done a fine job of deactivting them (deactivated by other means is the official term) and some are solid, some ghave the odd moving part but no license is required to own them.

Please choose from the dug up examples below:


WW2 K98 with refitted original woodwork:


WW2 German K98, matching numbers relic rifle with replacement original woodwork:

Here`s a really good relic K98, oddly preserved in some areas so you can read some of the serial number and most of the matching numbers, but other parts are almost rotted through - more than likely wrapped in a gun bag or oily clth when it went in the ground. Found in Northern France, its been re-fitted with original woodwork and the bolt moves to some degree - the breach and barrel have been pinned just to be sure.

German WW2 MG15 machine gun with saddle mag:


WW2 German MG15 machine gun with saddle mag:

Now this is seriously rare, a WW2 German mg15, believed to be an aircraft gun (these were the mainstay of the Luftwaffe defensive guns in their bomber fleet). Found in Northern France, we couldn`t get any details on the dig site as it was found around 20 years ago, but its a very interesting gun, mostly all there apart from the receiver and barrel shroud. The saddle mag has to be the coolest thing we have seen, hit the ground so hard the outer casing has actualy formed around a handfull of cooked off rounds still inside... solid action, bent and crushed/locked solid so deactivated by other means.

German WW2 MG42 dug up machine gun:


WW2 German MG42 machine gun dug up relic:

Just love the German MG42, a serious piece of fast firing design. This one went down fighting in Northern France - The barrel has been deactivated as it still pops out (though heavy coorosion means it does not lock in place). Condition is good for a relic, its lost its bipod and wooden butt, Mind you, excellent value compared to a deactivated MG42 and you know the battlegroup who used it and lost it in action...

WW2 German MP40, dug up relic:


Dug up German MP40, has suffered in the ground:

Now this MP40 has clearly been in the ground - fair to say its not in great condition - the grip frame has almost gone and bot spring guide has almost rusted away in a kind of sectional way, looks pretty cool though and by far the cheapest, real WW2 Mp40 you will find! Definatly no need to deactivate as its "deactivated by other means" but we have had the breach pinned and welded to be certain.

WW2 German G43, dug up relic:


Dug up German G43, well, some of it:

G43`s are rare at the best of times and are big money when deactivated, so this has got to be the cheapest G43 ever - although to be fair its only really the barrel and breach thats original as its missing its bolt and trigger assembly (plus the barrel is a little bent). It is, however, the sniper version as it has the sight rail on the breach, plus we tracked down some woodwork for it and a real mag as well. No need to deactivate as its locked solid so "deactivated by other means" but we have had the breach pinned and welded to be certain.

WW2 Relic Browning 50 cal:


Relic WW2 Browning 50 cal Aircraft cannon:

Now this is real deal history - a WW2 Browning 50 cal recovered from the ground in Northern Italy. Now this Browning has been scrutinised by several experts as to what it was fitted to - initial thoughts were fighter wing gun number 3, but then maybe it was a turret gun... turns out its a top turret gun from a B26 Marauder - they had two electrinically operated 50 cals either side of the gunner, the short alloy cover by the breach of the barrel was to allow it to traverse up and down through the turret screen. Suffered a little in the wreck as its a little bent and rusted solid as you would expect, has most of the mounting in place and some of the alloy ammo chute. Locked up solid so no need to deactivate but we`ve had the bolt welded just in case.

WW2 British Vickers K relic - real deal Arnham Para Jeep issue:


Dug up WW2 British Vickers K VGO recovered and displayed in Arnham:

Got to be the holy grail of dug ups - a real deal, genuine Vickers K recovered from a blown up Jeep in Arnham (would have been from the Para recon jeeps from the glider drop - every Jeep was lost or destroyed), this one spent 30 years on display in Arnham before being sold into a private collection. Condition is very good, though its clearly been blown up as its bent, plus it comes with its simple mount (not like the bigger SAS mounts, recon mounts were simple, lightweight affairs), recovered but wrecked mag and the bolt has some movement. The grip was missing so we sourced and fitted an original just to complete the look and feel.
