RARE, ORIGINAL,1872 Dated, U.S. Army Marked Model 1871 Remington Springfield Armoury Rolling Block .50x70 Military Calibre Service Rifle. Sn 13918 - 13918
During the U.S. Civil War, Joseph Rider experimented with several breech loading weapon designs. In 1865, he was issued the first patent for what would evolve into the Remington rolling block action resulting in the introduction of the Remington Model 1871 rifle. The Remingtons continued to invest in Rider's work, and met with Ordnance Department officials in the hope of interesting them in this new design. The rifles made by Remington and under licence by Springfield Armoury were purchased by the U.S. Government but the U.S. Army did not greet the Remingtons with much enthusiasm, despite its superiority to the standard-issue Springfield model 1870. Foreign sales of the weapon were much more successful. Denmark ordered many of the model 1870 and 1871 rifles. In 1873, Spain ordered 50,000 model 1871 rifles, which were delivered in 1875. Numerous other countries, such as France, Chile, Argentina, Cuba, Greece, and Puerto Rico also purchased Model 1871’s. Remington made examples are rare. This is an excellent original U.S. Army Remington Springfield Armoury Model 1871 rolling block rifle in obsolete .50x70 calibre. It has a 36" barrel (52" overall) and has an external hammer, block & blade fore sight and ladder rear sight. The woodwork and metal work are undamaged and excellent.

RARE, 1990’s Yugoslav / 3rd Balkan Wars Theatre Made Personal Side Arm / Fighting Knife With Etched Panels ‘Death To Fascism Freedom To The People’ & Leather Scabbard. Sn 13895 - 13895
The Yugoslav or 3rd Balkan Wars were a series of ethnically-based wars and insurgencies fought from 1991 to 2001 inside the territory of the former Yugoslavia. These wars accompanied and/or facilitated the breakup of the Yugoslav state, when its constituent republics declared independence, but the issues of ethnic minorities in the new countries (chiefly Serbs, Croats and Albanians) were still unresolved at the time the republics were recognized internationally. The wars are generally considered to be a series of separate but related military conflicts which occurred in, and affected, most of the former Yugoslav republics. Often described as Europe's deadliest since World War II, the conflicts have become infamous for the war crimes involved, including ethnic cleansing, crimes against humanity and rape. These were the first European conflicts since World War II to be formally judged genocidal in character and many key individual participants were subsequently charged with war crimes. This theatre of War made fighting knife is no doubt a personal side arm / fighting knife of one of the Militia personnel or other armed factions who fought in the Balkans Wars. This heavy knife has a 7 ½” single edged blade with deep swept top edge. The blade is 2 ½” wide at its broadest and tapers to a sharp point making it ideal for chopping, slashing or stabbing in close quarter combat. The blade has etched panels on both side. One side has a ‘clenched fist within shield badge’ above Yugoslav / Balkan Script ‘SMRT FASCISMU’ (Death To Fascism) and the reverse has a ‘death’s head skull and crossbones within shield badge’ above Yugoslav / Balkan script which roughly translates to ‘Freedom To The People’. It measures 12" overall length and has wood slab scales each inset with grooved alloy mounts. The heavy cross guard is brass. The knife is complete with original leather sheath with single retaining strap and sprung stud fastener. The price for this rare Balkans War piece includes UK delivery. Sn 13895
