Flag_of_the_German_EmpireThis is a matching Imperial stamped Erfurt Luger. Manufactured in 1916 it has the Wilhelm crown as well as 1861, the serial number. Note the wooden buttons on the magazine, a characteristic of WW1 Lugers.

German Maschinengewehr 34

Flag_of_the_NSDAP_(1920–1945).svgThis is my 1938 Mauser manufactured MG34. It is numbered 8998 and matches except for the stock. It is stamped BSW 1938. What’s nice about these pre-war mg’s is the machined top cover, compared to the stamped ones that they changed to later. Again, it’s a demil. But it’s also a beast. Thank you Arms Code of Canada.

Flag_of_the_NSDAP_(1920–1945).svgThis is my Steyr manufactured MP44, manufactured in 1945. It’s stamped 6565/G and SWJ45 with a waffenamt WaA623. Obviously it’s been demilled otherwise I certainly couldn’t have it out on display.

Panzerfaust 60

Flag_of_the_NSDAP_(1920–1945).svgThis is my Panzerfaust 60. It came out of Etobicoke from the Toronto Militaria Show. It’s plainly been recovered from water and then repainted but still a neat piece. Here also is a photo of a member of the “Ost Berlin Gebeit” with the same type of weapon.
