    Default Hugh Brock Collection

    I was going through some old photos and ran across a few from the late Hugh Brock. Mr. Brock, and his lovely wife Mary, were very good to me over the years. After he passed, his wife sold the collection and moved away. I exchange emails with here from time to time.

    This is a portion of the collection. He had collected for over 55 year and had one of the finest collections, and he only collected the very best. You can see the STG in one of the photos leaning against the wall, but unfortunately I don't have photos of the entire collection. Some of his sniper rifles were a work of art.

    Sorry for the photos going sideways, it auto uploaded this way to the forum.

    Default reminder

    I have several rifles he owned..a reminder than we are only temporary caretakers. I often wonder in a hundred years who will own my stuff...

    I own one of his rifles. My AX 1940 I bought off him in 2016. Was really happy to see it in the k98k vol ll book series. Came as a shock to me when I saw it in the book. Little surprise from Mike and Bruce for me!

    Have a number of items purchased from Hugh over the years. A pleasure to work with and a very knowledgable gentleman. Another loss to the hobby .....

    Wow. I don't own any of his guns but it looks like I wish I did!
    I tried to straighten out some of the photos.

    I too own a few of his rifles. Only spoke with him a handful of times but he seemed like a great guy

    I had the privilege of purchasing this rifle from Mr Brock's collection:

    Even though I only had this one transaction with them and Hugh was very ill at the time, they were both very professional and pleasant to deal with . Very nice people.
