    Default A Few Polish Firearms: How about yours?

    Was talking to another member about Polish rifles and wondered if any one else shared this interest?These are my four Poles,the first was a scrubbed receiver,with a WWI German bolt,all matching wood and metal,except the bolt.Most likely saw action in Spain.The one thing different was the bolt release,has a waffenamt,and the part number on it matches the rifle.Here are some photos of that rifle.Never knew there were Polish98s till a gun show a few of years ago,when a fellow was handling this rifle and explaining it to his friend.He set it down ,I picked it up,and started a new branch of collecting WWII arms.I do love this hobby!

    Thanks, here is a WZ29 with calvary style bolt.The crest is Radom 1929.Was always interested in SS arms,but from what I am learning,these rifles and Czech handguns saw a lot of service in the earlier years of the SS.From what I have read the losses of small arms in Poland was higher than expected.That photo is one I have never seen before. Will try to post some of the ones I have in Wehrmacht service.
    Photos of a couple Polish bayonets I have.The blued one was reissued for German service,the one in the white may have been used as it came. Both have German scabbards and early dated frogs,that might well have been used in service together.

    Here is a photo of German troops clearing something from the snow. Their rifles propped correctly in the snow.The distinctive Polish front sight protecters ,straight bolt handles and extended hangaurds can be seen.
