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:

Dug up WW2 French Mas-36:

Blimey, don`t ever see a deativated Mas-36, let alone a relic, lost to the ground in Northern France during the Blitzkrieg. Condition is realy good in places, you can just about make out the text on the side of breach, quite something.

WW2 US BAR (Browning Automatic Rifle) dug up relic:


Dug up WW2 US BAR:

Now here`s a piece of history, a WW2 US Browning Automatic Rifle thats been blown up by the looks of it (the thick internal cocking bar is bent and twisted), though the siezed bolt has a half ejected round in the chamber (had the brass drilled to check it was not live) and its pretty darned cool...

WW2 US 50 cal barrel, dug up relic:


Dug up US Browning 50 cal barrel:

We`d hazard a guess that this was off a Sherman that went up in flames - the barrel would almost certainly need to be super hot to bend in this way rather than crack or snap (if it were driven over by a tank or blown up). Still, weighs a ton and would look super cool in any man cave...

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.

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.

Now this WW2 relic G43 has a complete action unlike the one above, the woodwork is repro of course but the rest is real deal, the action is of course locked, not Deactivated as its definatly rusted solid but we have had the barrel pinned and welded to be certain though the trigger moves and the mag ejects which is rather cool.
