**RARE**1907 British War Office 1906 Pattern LSA Co (London Small Arms Company) Miniature Military Training Bolt Action .297/ 230 Morris Obsolete Calibre Rifle. Sn 18905 - 18905
These rifles were designed by RSAF Enfield in 1906 and intended to be used by Boys Clubs and the Miniature Rifle Clubs to provide basic training in the military bolt action rifle. The idea was introduced by the War Office in the light of the poor performance of British marksmanship in South Africa. The rifles were not made by Enfield but by BSA and LSA Co. They were manufactured up to 1914 and continued in use during the war. Initially they were single shot, as with ours, but later a five round magazine model was introduced ( a copy of a contemporary advertisement of these rifles is illustrated in image 1) . The rifles were chambered for .22 calibre and the UK obsolete .297/ 230 Morris cartridge (these rounds were approx. as powerful as .22 rim fire and were used as target practice rounds, see page 349 of Cartridges of the World by Barnes). This is a rare example by the LSA Co chambered for the .297/ 230 Morris cartridge. It is in excellent condition. It has a blade fore sight with hinged sight protector cover and graduated rear sight with wing protector arrangement (illustrated). The cylinder is crisply marked with calibre and maker detail together with King’s crown ‘W.O. (War Office) and 1907 date. The barrel and action have matching numbers 3605. There is no visible number on the bolt. It’s brass butt plate has a hinged trap. The all original wood stock is excellent with just light bumps and bruises to be expected. The weapon's bolt action cocking mechanism functions correctly. The price includes UK delivery. NB As an antique obsolete calibre rifle no licence is required to own this item in the UK if retained as part of a collection or display. Sn 18905

The EM-GE Zenit was manufactured during a very short period by ‘Moritz and Gerstenberger’ from around 1937-1939 in Zella Mehlis, Germany (the same town where ‘Tell airguns’ were made). The single shot air pistol has an over-lever cocking mechanism that pushes the piston back towards the rear of the pistol. When cocked open, the barrel is automatically tilted towards downwards revealing the breach. The rear of the cocking lever also forms the fixed rear sight. The cylinder and cocking arm showing signs of age related wear.(See 'A Collectors Guide to Air Pistols by Dennis E. Hiller pages 70,72,73) The top of the lever is stamped ‘Zenit Em-Ge-Zella-Mehlis (Thur)’. On the cocking aid it is stamped ‘Patent- Germany’ within a ship. The foresight is adjustable in both elevation and windage. The barrel is made from a brass insert and was only available in .177 calibre. The stock is made from walnut with a lovely medallion of the companys emblem on each side. These pistols are very rare and a real collectors piece. Price includes UK delivery.

*Pre WWII Haenel Model 26 Factory Nickel Plated Air Pistol. AI 635. - AI 275
Haenel is a German weapon manufacturer located in Suhl, Germany. The Prussian commissioner for firearms manufacturing, Carl Gottlieb Haenel, began producing bicycles and weapons in 1840, a combination which was not uncommon at the time as it required similar means of production and skills. In 1887, the Suhl-based weapons designer C. W. Aydt joined the company in order to produce his Aydt target rifle and later the Aydt target pistol for sporting. In 1879, the German Army introduced the M1879 Reichsrevolver and a smaller derivative, the M1883. Haenel was awarded a share of the manufacturing for these firearms as part of a consortium, named the Suhl Konsortium, formed with the sporting arms manufacturer V. Ch. Schilling. The firearms they produced were marked with the signature "VCS CGH Suhl" in reference to their initials and Suhl origin. Haenel later produced hunting weapons, bayonets and, during World War I, produced vast quantities of the Mauser Model 98 for the German Army. This air pistol in factory nickel plate is the Model 26 which was produced circa 1930-1939. It features an enamelled zinc alloy barrel (with brass liner) and frame with brown wood grip plates.(See 'A Collectors Guide to Air Pistols by Dennis E. Hiller pages 85-86) The cylinder is clearly marked ‘HAENEL MOD. 26 BRIT PAT No277265 DRP’ with ‘MADE in GERMANY on the right of the cylinder and ‘CAL 4.5 m/m (.177) on the left side of the barrel. The pistol is fitted with its correct front post and rear adjustable rear sights. The left hand wooden grip has a number of small nicks, and the nickel plate is showing some signs of wear. Serial No 7158.The pistol cocks and fires crisply. Its smooth bore is clean. The price includes UK delivery.

**RARE**Victorian Era Wilkinson Pall Mall (London) Brass & Iron Black Powder Gamekeeper's Alarm Mine Mounted For Display On Wood Plinth. Sn 18916 - 18916
This Victorian era Gamekeeper's alarm mine was used to warn Gamekeepers of the presence of Poachers on Estates or outbuildings. Several variants were available in the period. This is a rare mine with an unusual action. The mine measures 10 ½”x 3 ½”x 3”. It has a heavy external brass hammer marked on both sides by the famous English manufacturer ‘Wilkinson Pall Mall’. To arm the mine, the hammer is pulled back and a hinged plate locks the hammer back. The hammer is locked in place by an iron safety pin secured to the plate by an iron link chain. The pin passes through a hole in the plate and iron base of the device when the plate is positioned so a protrusion in one end of the plate prevents the hammer from moving forward. This allows the arm to be safely loaded for firing. We cannot find any contemporary book or internet reference regarding the operation of this type of mine but believe it would have been armed with a small black powder charge connected to a short piece of Bickford detonator fuse cord which would have a percussion cap on the tip (the charge may have consisted of a blank shotgun cartridge, percussion cap removed and attached to Bickford cord inserted into the base of the cartidge). The charge or adapted shotgun cartridge would sit on the hollow section on the front of the iron base. The fuse cord would pass over the ‘v’ notch plates & the percussion cap seated in the ‘pan’. The bar has 2 holes to allow trip wires to be tied to it. The wire would then be passed across a path or place where trespassers or poachers would likely be found entering or wandering on Property or Estates. When positioned the safety pin would be removed. When activated the trip wire would release the plate causing the hammer to fall and fire the percussion cap which in turn detonated the charge via the fuse cord. When fired the blast would warn gamekeeper's of the presence of poachers. The iron base has 4 screw holes for securing to a post or tree. The hammer action on our example is strong and the safety pin works as it should. At some point in its life the gun has been screw mounted to a varnished wood plinth with 4 brass ball feet. The plinth measures 12”x4”x1”. This piece would make a superb desk ornament conversation piece and is worthy of further research. The price includes UK delivery. NB As an antique black powder alarm mine no licence is required to own this item in the UK if retained as part of a collection or display. Sn 18916

Scarce *Acvoke .177 Air Pistol by Accles & Shelvoke Ltd. AI 637. - AI 637
The Acvoke pistol was developed after the end of WWII . The post war market for air guns proved profitable, and the leading manufacturer in the field was ‘Webley & Scott’. Accles & Shevoke Ltd designed the Acvoke as a rival for the popular ‘Webley Junior’ pistol. The Acvoke was patented in 1946, although it was largely based on the ‘German Tell II’ air pistol. A distinctive feature that it folded when the pistol was broken. When broken, the pellet was lodged in the breech end of the barrel. The Acvoke was rather popular in the late 40’s and early 50’s because of its cheap price and very small, sleek design. This .177 example is in excellent condition for its age, showing some marks to the bluing on the cylinder, trigger/guard and cocking lever and the front sight is off centre. (See 'A Collectors Guide to Air Pistols by Dennis E. Hiller pages 8,9,10) The plastic grips have ‘Acvoke’ imprinted and are undamaged. The rear sight has ‘Accles & Shelvoke Ltd – Patent Applied For- Birmingham 6 ENG’ imprinted on it. The serial No is 14372 and is imprinted on the lever. The pistol cocks and fires crisply and its smooth bore is clean. A great piece for the collector. The price includes UK delivery.
