1911 Colt Soviet rework (.45cal)
3. 1911 Colt Soviet rework (.45cal) 
During WW1 the Russians purchased a lot of firearms on the world market for their forces one of which was a contract w/Colt for the 1911 Colt .45. These guns were all in the commercial "C" block serial series & were marked in Cryllic characters "English Contract" on the right frame. This particular Colt was reworked by the Soviets w/a dull blue finish, a small batch of these guns were offered on the market a few years ago.

This is a rare pre-war Mosin-Nagant91/30 PEM side mount sniper rifle, Tula 1939 mfg, rifle is an original sniper, all matching, original bolt & parts, scope/mount & base are original Soviet but not matching to the rifle. A number of these guns & 91/30 PE center line mounted guns that were original snipers w/original bolts came in a few years ago w/no optics or mounts, these were original snipers the Finns had in store & had removed the bases/scopes/mounts, they did not have the base mounting holes filled in & had not been removed from service as snipers & rearsenaled into standard infantry rifles as a lot of guns that are presently available.

Sniper Rifles 1934-1994 (7.62x54r)
14. Sniper Rifles 1934-1994 (7.62x54r) 
The Soviet Union has always been a leader in the utilization of trained marksmen in their armed forces, they began a dedicated program in the 20's to develope equipment & tactics & they have actually been using what we today term "designated marksmen" since the 30's! The major difference between their system & that of the West is that the Soviets issued scope equipped rifles to every infantry squad & integrated their tactical use into all facets of Soviet infantry operations since the beginning. This album shows the major Soviet sniper rifles issued from the 30's thru the dissolution of the the Soviet Union in the 90's.

1945 SKS Siminov (7.62x39)
16. 1945 SKS Siminov (7.62x39) 
The SKS was developed late in WW2 & introduced on a trial in the closing stages of that war. After the war the Soviets were developing the AK47 & they put the SKS into production in 1949 as a back-up to the AK. It didn't see wide-spread use by the Soviets but eventually equipped & was mfg by many of the ComBloc countries including China, N Viet Nam, N Korea, Romania, East Germany & even Albania! The Soviet guns went thru a series of modifications, the original 1949 guns were mfg w/a spike bayonet similiar to the original 1945 trials guns, in 1950 they switched to common blade style, they were mfg in the Soviet Union from 1949-1956/57.

1947 Kalashnikov Type3 AK47 (7.62x39)
17. 1947 Kalashnikov Type3 AK47 (7.62x39) 
The AK47 was originally a rifle w/a stamped center receiver fixed to a front & rear milled trunion, this was the TypeI in production app. 1947-1950, problems w/the stamping & riveting led to a full milled receiver TypeII (close in appearance to the TypeIII but many detail differences) app. 1949-1955, the final milled receiver variant the TypeIII (pictured in this album) was mfg app. 1953-1960 & was the main production variant of the original AK47 series. The rifle in the pics is based on a pre-ban Chinese mfg Poly-Tech legend & is believed to have been made on Soviet machinery, the rear sights on these rifles even has the Soviet Crylic battlefield setting mark on the rear sight. It's an exact duplicate of a Soviet TypeIII except for the markings, this rifle is fitted w/an original Soviet laminate TypeIII furniture set.

1964 SVD Dragunov (7.62x54r)
20. 1964 SVD Dragunov (7.62x54r) 
The Soviet SVD is one of the most collectible military rifles out there, very few are in the US, probably less than 1000, there are some commercial variants, all Russian mfg, the California Armory guns, & the Tiger which is most numerous (although still rare), the CA guns & Tigers are not C&R eligible, the KBI & early military are. In this album are examples of an "early" SVD, 1983 Ishevsk, 1 of the KBI later production, & an early Chinese Type79/85 SVD, also shown are accessories, scopes, & Night Vision scopes used w/them, all the guns, scopes etc are described & pictured individually & then collectively to make direct photo comparisons possible.

RPG7 Rocket Launcher
22. RPG7 Rocket Launcher 
This is the "infamous" RPG7, an anti-tank infantry weapon. This particular piece is completely inert, it has a large hole torch cut in the body, the firing pin hole has been drilled out & a pin welded in place to deform it, luckily once the handguards etc are in place it displays well.
