Other Collectors Firearms
Whether or not certain guns are actually classified as antique by definition, there are many that are considered collectible. Imagine owning an original MP 40 (Maschinenpistole 40)—a submachine gun developed in Germany and used extensively by the Axis powers during the Second World War. Finding one can be next to impossible, and although it is not technically an antique, it is considered a prize among collectors with deep pockets.
Another highly desirable gun is the US M1 Garand, which was the standard service rifle of the American Infantry during the same world conflict—a historic carbine our fathers and grandfathers may have used during their service to this nation. Although not as rare as the German MP40, finding one in pristine condition is a dream for many firearm connoisseurs.
Russia’s Mosin-Nagant was a bolt-action rifle developed from 1882 to 1891 that saw service by the armed forces of the Russian Empire, the Soviet Union and various other nations. Fortunately for collectors, hobby shooters, and history buffs, the Mosin-Nagant can still be acquired in the surplus markets with relative ease and without a second mortgage.
The list of iconic firearms is sizeable and steeped in history. An old Colt .22 revolver in its original box, with the original sale sticker is still on it that reads “Dayton’s $78.50.” You can be sure it’s worth a lot more than $78.50 today! Firearms, just like coins and cars, are highly sought after by collectors all over the country.
