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 German K98 dug up relic rifle:


Dug up WW2 German K98 complete with woodwork and all parts:

This dug up WW2 German K98 must have the most fragile wood we`ve seen in some time. Again, dug up from the Courland Pocket battle, all original parts are still on the gun, including barrel bands, butt and the remnants of the sling. we would not advise cleaning this one up as the woodwork is just too fragile, best left well alone. Not Deactivated as the actions solid.

WW12 German Luger, dug up relic:


Dug up German Luger, lots of moving parts, very rare:

Wow, this dug up WW2 German Luger has spent over 70 years in the ground and it still has a moving bolt and trigger - the springs and small parts have rusted out so it does not cock, but most of the action is there. The trigger frame has almost rusted through on the front but its been fitted with wood grips (guessing the originals did not make it). Overall condition is very good, not deactivated but the barrel is clearish so has been welded up with some holes drilled on the underside of the barrel.

German WW2 MP40 dug up sub machine gun:


WW2 German MP40, complete:

OK, fair to say this German Mp40 dug up in the Courland Battle Fields has sufferred after 70 years in the ground - a lot of the metal has gone and a lot of the bakelite has a well, though its got to be the cheapest way to get your hands on a historic MP40 for your collection PLUS you know where it was used and lost... Comes with a real deal MP40 mag as it looked a bit naked without it. No nead to deactivated this gun as that bolt is definatly solid!

German WW2 STG44 with mag dug up rifle:


WW2 German STG44/MP44 with mag dug up relic:

Cool, a WW2 German STG44/MP44 dropped in action in Courland, this one is very complete though could probably benefit from additional cleaning as there are some solid deposits lurking here and there. Some woodwork is still present - most of one grip and some rear stock, plus the mainspring, along with the thin front metal handguard (usually the first to go). The mag is a permanant fixture, though its been repaired in place with a wood insert.

German WW2 STG44/MP44 dug up rifle:


WW2 German STG44/MP44 complete dug up relic:

Wow, now you just don`t see a lot of STG44/MP44`s around - deactivated ones go for £3500+ when you do, so to get hold of a complete WW2 German STG44 dug up from the Courland Pocket Battle is just epic. Missing its wood butt and grips (you could easily fit repro if you want) it does come with a mag thats not shown in the pics. Condition is better on one side than the other and the rifle is obviously not deactivated as its seized solid. This would be an excellent addition to any collection at a fraction of the cost of a deactivated STG44 and you know the battlegroup who used it and lost it in action...

German WW2 STG44/MP44 dug up:


WW2 German STG44, very good dug up condition:

As above, we have another German WW2 MP44, this one is missing its bolt and rear plate... which is kind of handy if you fit a replica bolt, back plate and woodwork as you`d have a real deal MP44 with a moving bolt for not a lot of money - if one of you doesn`t do it we will. Not deactivated as the barrel is rusted solid and there`s no bolt.
