WW2 1928 Buttstock (Early Numbered) – Used

Original WW2 early production 1928 buttstock that has a 4 digit number on the back (9213) which was done by Savage Arms in the very beginning of production in 1940 (this number was stopped being stamped after about 10 000 guns being made – it has nothing to do with the serial number on the gun it is a production number). The buttstock is used but in good condition with some dins and dents but no chips or cracks. Being early it has no crossbolt on the front end. It is striped with no hardware with it.

1920’s-1930’s 20 Round Patent Magazine – Australian – Soldered Holes

Original 1930’s Colt Era production corrected patent marked 20 round magazine. This one was issued to the Australians for desert use, or was to be but never saw any use, sadly poor storage over al these years results in minor rust spots all over the surface but not bad at all. The rear spine and the follower shows no signs of every being in a gun or loaded, perhaps it sat somewhere after being soldered and never issued. A very nice example of an early Colt Era mag sent overseas, most of the soldered magazines i come across are the usual WW2 manufacturers not the early ones, this is the first I have ever had.

WW2 US Canvas Vehicle Case – (Early) -Dated

Original WW2 early / late production canvas gun case that holds a complete gun with no magazine attached in un-used condition. This case is the only one I have ever seen dated – it is stenciled on the front B. A. – 1944, these cases that do not hold a magazine are believed to be early production so I am not sure how this managed to be made so late in the war. These were used in vehicles such as half tracks and Sherman tanks. There is a full length zipper with the original cotton tie string attached to the zipper and 2 the leather straps with snaps on the back. This case has very strong clear stenciling on the front side. The original US Stock number is – D50268.

WW2 US Invasion Waterproof Gun Case – Dated 1944

Original WW2 US invasion waterproof bag to hold the Thompson Submachine Gun, well marked with an ink stamp that reads – COVER WATERPROOF, SUB-MACHINE GUNS followed by the stock numbers as well as dated April 13, 1944 and it was from the PHILADELPHIA ORDNANCE DEPOT. This is the correct cover for the Thompson not the rifle or carbine cover – which certainly have been used for a Thompson. It is made of a green plastic type of material with a clear ink stamp. It is in perfect un-isuued condition with the original brown paper still attached to the open end to keep it from getting sealed closed before being issued. A fantastic well dated (PRE – D Day) example of the waterproof cover, could not be improved upon.

1920’s / 1930’s 50 Round (L-Drum) Commercial Magazine Pouch (Rusco)

Original 1920’s / 1930’s commercial 50 round (L-Drum) magazine pouch manufactured by Rusco. It is made of a darker straw color canvas with the original shoulder strap. The strap is a correct manufacture but is lighter in color than the pouch which I have seen a few times in the past. The strap is unmarked and the outside of the pouch is unmarked. It has minor soiling and wear but no rips or tears and the stitching is strong.. Has the rear belt loop as well. These no military pouches are getting very tough to find in good condition.
