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.

The Winder musket was a .22 calibre training rifle used by the U.S Army in the early 20th Century. The weapon was the brainchild of Colonel C. B. Winder, who advocated marksmanship training with a rifle of similar size and weight to a service rifle but chambered in .22 rim fire, which was both economical and suitable for indoor ranges. The Winder Musket was based on the Winchester Model 1885 single shot rifle. Although it was never officially referred to as the Winder musket, the weapon was informally named in honour of Colonel Winder, and has since generally been referred to as the Winder musket. The Winder Musket was superseded by the 1922 Model bolt-action training rifle. Winder Musket serial number records are sketchy having several gaps in the record log. Winders made in 1918 and 1919 were given the designation ‘Model 87’. This is an excellent original example of the Winder Musket. It has Winchester 1879 Patent information on the barrel together with calibre detail and manufacturer trade mark stamped on the top steel action tang. It is serial number ‘116903’ (all illustrated). It has a 28” round steel barrel (43 ¾” overall), an adjustable rear target sight and block & blade fore sight. It has a steel butt plate, fore end block, barrel bands and sling swivels.
