    Hi Harry, that looks much better now.

    The Dreyse is a nice little pistol, designed by a certain well known chap called Schmeisser.

    Cheers, Ade.

    here's the M42 with the hammerite removed. Removing the paint has uncovered the serial number 16427 and the 'W' of the 'Wa' still remaining - which is nice. I have highlighted the markings with chalk for the photo.

    Does anyone know if this can be dated through the seriel number - I suspect not?

    All that remains is a coat of renwax and job done....now what's next on the shopping list

    Thanks Ade
    I didn't know he designed it - at last I have a relic Schmeisser - pity it's the wrong one

    Hi Harry, glad I mentioned that now.

    That again looks better.

    "WA" is of course for "Hugo Schneider AG, Leipzig". But I think you know that one.

    Mod. LP42

    Cheers, Ade.

    I do like the M2AC, especially with the AA sight.

    Not sure if this should be called a "Relic", but I would say it will at least pass as a "Battlefield pickup".

    This M/1893 Nagant Revolver was found after the war under a storehouse in Bagn, Norway. There was fighting there during the German invasion in April 1940 and it was probably dropped by a Norwegian soldier.
    Notice the "N" marking with Crown, which if I am not mistaken is for the Norwegian army.
    The revolver is produced in Belgium, the Norwegian army bought 14,000 examples of this weapon.

    The Bren Barrels are a rare find, I havn't seen many relic Bren items around. The top barrel pic shows a British rather than Canadian Inglis made Mk2 Barrel and the bottom pic is of what I suspect is a Late British Mk1* Enfield Barrel.
