**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 stenciled lettering. The price includes deactivation certificate. Due to the size and weight of this piece delivery will be by arrangement and at cost **We can arrange for this firearm to be brought up to the latest UK/EU specification for UK customers (customers can purchase on our lay-away scheme. The weapon will then be brought up to the EU specification and the relevant certificate obtained prior to the transfer of ownership and delivery)**D 1298

INERT DEACTIVATED. This is a rare first pattern German WW1 high explosive fragmentation Granatenwerfer 16 that was nicknamed the pigeon. The weapon was first introduced into the Austrian army in 1915 and adopted in a modified version by the Germans in 1916 as the Granatenwerfer 16. The small size of the trench mortor made it easily transportable giving indirect fire in the trenches. The Granatenwerfer is a type of spigot mortar where the hollow tail of the mortar fits over the spigot of the launcher. Ammunition came in various forms including smoke, high-explosive, illumination, and propaganda mortars. This is a first pattern with a conical segmented projectile as opposed to the later parallel sided one, high explosive fragmentation mortar with a segmented body. The fin assembly of the mortar consists of a turned steel tube with three sets of thin pressed steel fins riveted to it. Later Granatenwerfers had 4 fins. The nose has a small brass impact fuse screwed into it. The price includes UK delivery and no licence is required to possess this mortar in the UK if retained as part of a collection or display.
