M7758 - WW11 AMERICAN LEATHER HOLSTER WITH STRAP, NAMED.   £75
A brown leather holster with shoulder strap, open type with over strap & popper, not sure if its an issue item or not as I can see no stamps, but it has been marked in ink front and back with the owners name "Charles Brown" and also to the front places he served, starting with England, then France, Belgium, Holland and finaly Germany. Well used but good condition, could have been used by an american para or tanker, sadly his unit is not marked but still a nice item.

A good condition butt assembly for the MG42 machine gun, this is the wooden version, rather than the bakerlite type, complete with metal coupling to attach it to the MG, also stamped with the weapons number.

M8267 - SPANISH AIRFORCE M43 MAUSER RIFLE.   Sold
A good spanish made Mauser rifle, the model M1943, which was produced just for the spanish army, another model the M1944 was made for the airforce, the only difference being the markings, the spanish imported a great many german mauser K98 rifles just prior to the war and the top spanish gun factory of La Coruna, tasked with production of this rifle, recycled many of the german wartime mausers with new styled woodwork, a straight bolt action and other minor changes, the breech has the full La Coruna factory crest and is dated 1957, this is a clean and tidy rifle with good dry fire action, nice unusual model of the famous Mauser rifle.
