I was just wondering if there are any other weapons collectors on here. By weapons collecting I mean guns, knives, swords, bows, generally any weaponry. If you do, what do you have?

I have a Browning BL-22, FN .270, Remington 870, and RWS Diana as far as guns.

As for knives, I have 14 knives of assorted varieties, from the classic Victorinox Swiss Army Knife to a 4 1/4 in. fixed blade hunting knife.

I don't have any swords yet, but I want a reproduction of Narsil or Anduril, and a claymore, as well as any other medieval swords.

Regards,

Navymidn

I have been working on a collection of bolt action battle rifles, concentrating on the WWII period.

I'm slowing collecting WWII era firearms but it isn't the cheapest hobby in the world so I've only got 4 so far. But some day I'll own a BAR and a Thompson.

You realize that a reproduction BAR is going for about 10 grand now B757300.

For some reasons, semi and Class III firearms prices have been going up.

Maybe because most people are figuring that travisty known as the "assault weapon ban" isn't going to be renewed.

Yeah, I was looking at the prices for BAR's recently just for fun. It is going to be years before I even seriously consider purchasing one. For right now, it's just a long term goal. I'll stick with rifles and maybe a pistol or two before I got for any kind of fully automatic weapon.

Maybe you would be interested in a .30 cal, belt fed, Browning 1919A4 converted to semi-auto for your collection.
Mark is a good friend of mine, that buys fully auto Brownings from the U.S. Government. He then converts them to semi-auto using his own design.
The last time I checked, his test weapon was well over 20,000 rounds and still hasn't failed. $1900 is a lot less than 10k for a BAR. Here's his website http://www.blackbear.netfirms.com/index.htm

If I could legalydo it, I´d have my Bren Mk1* reactivated. I own several deacts, a .30M1 Carbine, a Mosin-Nagant 1891/30 rifle, a PPsH 41, a Sten Mk2 and a Bren Mk1*. I don´t want to go through the hazzle of getting a gun permit (getting one for the PPsH, theSten and the Bren would be nearly impossible for me anyway) at the moment.
Since I´m a member of an official Dutch living history group, I can probably get a licence by the Dutch government to blank adapt them, but then I couldn´t bring them back into Germany. Next month I´m going to buy a .303 Lee-Enfield No.4 Mk1.
