So here is my WWII collection, a couple of things date back to WW1, but no post WWII items (excluding some items that were reworked post war).
I have been collecting since age 14. I have been a member of this awesome forum for little over a year now, when I first joined, I found out pretty much all of my German helmets were not 100% real, thanks to help of everyone here! I no longer have any of them. (Sold them as fakes)
Learned so much from this forum! So I would like to say thank you to everyone!
Well enough of me yapping! Here are some pictures! Opened the safe to take out the long arms for pictures. Any questions would be happy to answer!
Also in my free time I map out New England's WWII defenses and explore abandoned bunkers/fortifications. Have a read if you want, has a lot of photos,
Boston WW2, harbor islands ruins/bunkers.

Very nice collection. You got some lovely rifles there
A couple of things,
The German grey uniform on the mannequin is actually Swedish WWII. Until I get the real deal, the zeltbahn 'cover' will do.
The German jack boots are officers issue/purchase. But will do, until I get the standard issue enlisted man ones.
A little too much ammo lol, all live. I keep getting more and more from where I work, but can't complain!

Thanks Douglas! Glad you like it!
Thanks! Just missing a couple more, then I will move on to handguns!
Most of my Long Arms are correct for WWII, except for some that have been rebuilt post war. (Mosins, one of my k98's, sanded m38 carcano, one m1 has the wrong sight)

A very cluttered battle field I think I need to invade Poland!
Stunning collection, Danny! A Feast for the Eyes! Must be nice having an entire room for your Treasures! ...
Great Photos as well, thanks for showing...!!
Ahhh. Thread is open again. Was closed there for a while.
Lots of great stuff there Danny. Thanks for showing.
My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

Well done! Thanks for sharing!
