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:

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 the 1944 Courland Battle on the Russian front - the bolt is jammed in the breach with what looks like grenade damage to one side. The barrel has been deactivated as it still pops out (though its all a bit beant from the grende). Condition is good for a relic, its lost its bipod and we have fitted a replcement 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 MG42 - historic example that went down fighting - a great addition to any collection:
