And yet another M1 carbine, this one is a Standard Products. What makes it special is the fact that I got it from a friends father who was issued that carbine by the US Army when he was a member of the Résistance and fought with the GI´s in 1944/1945.

It is a low serial number, early production and all the parts seem to be original, except for the type 2 sight which must have been fitted by an US Army armorer before the my friends dad got it.

Very, Very impressive collection..

As a museum professional, I believe you have one of the finest collections of US Small arms I have ever seen...

Another 1911A1, a Union Switch and Signal slide on an Ithaca lower. It's in a near mint condition.

A 1903 from Springfield Armory with a 1-13 dated barrel. It's in quite a good condition!

A Garand from Springfield Armory with the M7 grenade launcher and the M15 sight attached. It’s in an acceptable condition but unfortunately the stock cartouche is very faint, hard to see on the pic, but it’s still there.

I guess this is my best 19111A1! It's an all original parts mid-1943 Colt. It is in a very good, nearly mint condition! Actually, as I had to use the flash, the scratches in the finish look much worse on the pictures then in reality.
