    Imperial German/Polish/Nazi Rework Gewehr 98

    Polish contract Walther PPK

    G2 in an oval was a proof used by Polish army military inspector cpt. Gadomski in Radom factory, who was approving weapons produced there. Interesting and strange to see that proof on a pistol made in Germany, not at Radom factory. It wasn’t a general military acceptance proof, but in-house one...

    Polish Mauser research

    There were a few crazy people in Polish pre war army that held high positions and made stupid decisions and had weird ideas. One of the higher generals wrote a paper in late 30’s arguing superior position of cavalry lance over pistol. Not everything was following logic

    Polish Model 98a

    Early Warsaw made long rifles that originally had ww1 style rear sight, had that sight changed to a new style like on later wz98a rifles during refurbishment process. That’s why you can see those rifles with sights typical to later production guns.

    Polish Model 98a

    Very interesting rifle, Those were typically refurbished in this fasion in Warsaw Armory (ZW) around 1937 to be sent to Spain. That one seems different however. Receiver doesn't look like German WWI with its typical proofs and markings, and neither like Polish. Maybe it is, but with completely...

    Polish used and refurbished French Berthiers

    3 Polish Berthiers. They were most likely bought by Poland from France during Polish-Russian war 1920-1921. Poland didn't manufacture any weapons at that time yet and all they had were either WWI leftovers or purchases. Later in 1936 these rifles went through refurbishing process in Warsaw...

    Period turret photo from Spielauer book

    When you look at that picture and take a note of partially visible shoulder board, this officer is at least a major, possibly even colonel. Most likely staged photo of a higher ranking officer trying and aiming sniper rifle. Maybe one of his soldiers’ during an inspection or troop visit.
