The BSA Meteor is a break barrel spring powered rifle first made in Birmingham, UK, in 1959 by The Birmingham Small Arms Company and the first BSA air rifle engineered to fit a telescopic sight. It is one of the world’s bestselling air weapons with over 2 million sold worldwide. Marketed as an introductory rifle for plinking, hunting and firearm training as a replacement for the BSA Cadet, it is available in .177 (4.5 mm) and .22 (5.5 mm) calibre with standard or carbine length barrels. The spring and piston are compressed by breaking the barrel through 125° before loading a pellet directly into the breach. The barrel is then returned into place and secured with a detent lock. The single-stage trigger is adjustable for pressure. The sights are metal with the front sight being able to be switched from a bead to a blade and the rear adjustable sight could switch between a "V" and "square notch". The cylinder has two shallow grooves to accept a telescopic sight *blueing worn*. The top of the barrel is stamped ‘BSA GUNS LTD ENGLAND’ followed by a BSA piled arms symbol and the air chamber is stamped ‘BSA METEOR’ to the fore of the scope grooves. The rifle is in very good condition, with a nice aged patina to the bluing. The stock is nicely aged showing minor signs of use *wear to the top of the ribbed butt*. The rifle is firing at a respectable 8.88 ft/lbs. The price includes UK postage. NB As a post 1939 Air rifle, the restrictions of the Crime Reduction Act apply to the sale and delivery of this item.

A Set of Three Volumes on the ‘MP40’ Sub-Machine gun. BO 385. - BO 385
Book No1: ‘The Schmeisser Sub Machine Gun’ from the classic weapon series by Chris Ellis & Peter Chamberlain. Superiority of fire power for the infantryman was pursued with great vigour by the leading military powers in the latter part of the 19th Century and the years leading up to WWI. Efforts were mainly concentrated on the rifle, the personal weapon of rank and file infantry, for set piece battles were still taking place up to the end of the 19th Century. Hardback with cover, 64 illustrated pages. Book No2: ‘Blitzkrieg – The MP40 Maschinenpistole of World War II’ by Frank Lannamico. The Germans fielded their first pistol-caliber fully automatic weapon, the MP18 I machine pistol, in the last months of World War I. The new German weapon and the tactics developed for its use were largely ignored by the victorious allied nations. The Germans however saw great potential in the concept and continued development in the post war era. In the first month of WWII the Germans fielded the revolutionary MP38 weapon. Just over a year later the Germans introduced the MP40 machine pistol. Paperback, 279 illustrated pages. Book No3: The MP40 Submachine gun by Mike Ingram. This book is the first in-depth study of one of the most important weapons of World War II. It is packed with action photographs and specially commissioned illustrations.

British Martini Henry, 1874 Dated Action, Fencing Musket. - MISC 915
This is an original British 1874 dated Zulu War era Martini Henry rifle that was converted into a fencing musket by the Victorians.

The MAT-49 is a submachine gun which was developed by French arms factory Manufacture Nationale d'Armes de Tulle (MAT) for use by the French Army and was first produced in 1949. The MAT-49 used a machine stamping process which allowed the economical production of large numbers of submachine guns, then urgently required by the French Government for use by Army, French Foreign Legion as well as airborne and colonial forces to meet the need of a compact weapon. Production continued at Tulle until the mid-1960s, then switched to the Manufacture d'armes de Saint-Étienne plant (MAS), where the weapon was produced until 1973. In 1979, the French armed forces adopted the FAMAS 5.56 mm NATO assault rifle, and the MAT-49 was gradually phased out of service. The MAT-49 saw widespread combat use during the First Indochina War and the Algerian War, as well as the 1956 Suez Crisis. The weapon found considerable favour with airborne and mechanized troops, who prized it for its simplicity, ruggedness, firepower and compactness. This MAT 49 has the correct steel bar sliding shoulder stock, grip safety and is fitted with sling. It has a shrouded fore sight and open rear sights. With the shoulder stock closed the SMG measures 18 ½” overall, open it is 23” length. The metal work has original black finish which has even patina. The frame is stamped by the maker ‘MAT’ and has other inspections marks and indistinct lettering. It is serial number 5706.
