The Russian Degtyaryov DP-28 machine gun (Degtyaryov's infantry machine gun) is a light machine gun firing the 7.62×54mmR cartridge that was used primarily by the Soviet Union starting in 1928. The DP had a reputation as an effective light support weapon. It was nicknamed the "Record player" (proigryvatel) by Red Army troops because the disc-shaped pan magazine resembled a gramophone record and its top cover revolved while the weapon was fired.

**UNIQUE**THE OLDEST SURVIVING AUSTRALIAN WD VICKERS (SERIAL NUMBER 12)**Transit Cased Inter War 1929-1931 Production WW2 Lithgow Vickers MK 1 .303 Calibre Heavy Machine Gun With Cased WW2 1942 Dated MK IV Tripod**UK 2001 DEACTIVATION CERTIFICATED* D 1298 - D 1298
This Australian built Vickers MK1 .303 Machine gun serial number 12 is believed to be the oldest surviving Australian gun left out of a total of 12.344 made. The small arms factory at Lithgow New South Wales was set to make Australia self sufficient in the production of small arms after the devastating losses of WW1 and to remove the dependence on Great Britain for small arms supply. It was to be a sensible move; after Dunkirk it was Great Britain that became reliant on Australia for additional arms production. The 1st Lithgow Vickers No.1 was delivered to the Australian army on 3rd May 1929 but by the end of 1931 only 56 guns had been delivered-it was peacetime & there was little sense of urgency. By the time war broke out, production had reached 697 guns, but accelerated rapidly. The last gun made number B2344 was delivered on 27th June 1945. This smooth jacketed .303 Vickers Heavy Machine gun is with transit case & cased WW2 dated tripod. The machine gun is marked with serial number '12' below WD. It is also stamped MA (Lithgow) marks and other inspection marks (illustrated). It is fitted with flip up long range sight and has excellent undamaged wood firing handles. The machine gun retains near 100% of its original finish. Deactivated to UK specification in 2001 the gun cocks and dry fires, its breech cover can be opened and the feed tray can be removed. The tripod is in excellent original condition with original green paint and is marked ‘Mount Tripod MG MK IV’. It is also stamped with 1942 date and serial number. (The tripod and dial markings are illustrated in image 2). The Vickers and tripod are accompanied by their original wood transit cases with correct compartments and rope handles. The cases retain their original green paint and stencilled lettering. The price includes deactivation certificate. Due to the size and weight of this piece delivery will be by arrangement and at cost. D 1298

The Type 56 Automatic Rifle also known as the AK-56 is a Chinese 7.62×39mm rifle. It is a variant of the Soviet-designed AK-47 (specifically Type 3) and AKM rifles (with folding stock). Production started in 1956 at Chinese State Factory 66. During the Cold War period, the Type-56 was exported to many countries and guerrilla forces throughout the world. Many of these rifles found their way to battlefields in Africa, Southeast Asia, and the Middle East and were used alongside other Kalashnikov pattern weapons from both the Soviet Union as well the Warsaw Pact nations of Eastern Europe. Chinese support for the Democratic Republic of Vietnam before the mid-1960s meant that the Type-56 was frequently encountered by American soldiers in the hands of either Vietcong guerrillas or PAVN soldiers during the Vietnam war. The Type-56 was discovered far more often than the original Russian-made AK-47s or AKMs. This is an excellent Chinese Type 56 with folding stock.

PSOLD SOLD (03/11) ortuguese Military FBP M/48 (Model 1948) 9mm Calibre Sub Machine Gun With Collapsible Sling Stock**EARLY UK 1996 DEACTIVATED**D 1497 - D 1497
This is a 9 mm submachine gun originally developed from a design first conceived in 1940 by Gonçalves Cardoso, an officer of artillery in the Portuguese Army. The submachine gun was produced by the Fábrica de Braço de Prata weapon factory at Lisbon, whose initials FBP gave the name to the weapon. It utilized the large bolt and telescoping operating spring of the German MP40 submachine gun, and the collapsible wire stock of the American M3 submachine gun. The onset of World War II halted development of the weapon, which was further modified and put into production in 1948. The original version of the submachine gun the FBP M/48 only allowed for fully automatic fire. An upgraded version designated FBP m/63 introduced in 1961 also allowed for semi-automatic fire. The weapon was primarily issued to officers and NCOs in the Portuguese Armed Forces and security forces, along with quantities of ex-German MP 34 submachine guns. In Portuguese service it was used in combat in Angola, Portuguese Guinea, Mozambique, Portuguese India and Portuguese Timor. It was eventually replaced in service by the 9 mm Uzi and the collapsible-stock version of the standard m/961 G3 rifle. This is an excellent, original FBP M/48 9mm, sub machine gun. This example has excellent metal work throughout, with sling bars & sliding collapsible stock that fits snugly and functions perfectly as it should. This M/48 has original chequered wood grips. The magazine housing is stamped with FBP M/48 designation and number 14181 which is repeated on the barrel. Deactivated to early UK specification in 1996 the weapon cocks & dry fires with a strong spring action. The removable magazine has no internal spring or loading plate.
