Type 19 ‘North China’ Nambu pistol

Based on the Type 14 pistol designed by Kijiro Nambu in 1909 for the Japanese army, manufactured in Manchuria for the China Expeditionary Force c.1944-45 at the Nanking arsenal - serial number 076 out of about 200.

Crate-full of Mosin-Nagant 91/30 sniper rifles

Designed by Cpt Sergei Mosin and Léon Nagant, manufactured at the Tula and Izhevsk Soviet arsenals.

M1 carbine with M3 infrared scope

Manufactured by Inland Manufacturing Division of General Motors, scope by American Optical Co. c.1944 - serial number 345402.
7.62×33mm/.30 Carbine 15-round removable box magazine, gas operated semi-automatic, 20k Volt infrared light with 175m range infrared scope, additional foregrip.
Developed at the end of WW2, but also used in the subsequent conflicts involving America, the M3 scope resulted in one of the very first nigh-vision firearm with the German StG44 Vampir system.
As far as I understand it wasn’t mounted on the M1 Garand because of its limited range being better suited to its carbine counterpart.

FN 1910/22 “Queen Wilhelma” Dutch contract

Designed by John M. Browning, manufactured by FN Herstal c.1922-83.
.380ACP/9x17mm Browning Auto 8-round removable box magazine, blowback semi-automatic, grip and manual safeties.
The 1922 model featured an extended barrel, slide and grip, the latter allowing for two rounds of extra capacity. It was designed with police and military contracts in mind, scoring more than half a dozen of them for various countries - in this case, the Netherlands.




Colt Automatic ‘pre-Woodsman’ Target pistol

Made by Colt’s Manufacturing Co c.1915-27, then as the Colt Woodsman c.1927-WW2.
.22LR 10-round detachable box magazine, blowback semi-automatic.

7,62x38mmR seven-shot cylinder, double action, gas seal achieved by the cylinder moving in contact with the barrel’s rear end, with the cartridge’s neck bridging the final gap.




Galand revolver

Designed and manufactured by Charles François Galand c.1868 - serial number 3709 and AG6168.
9mmCF Galand six-round cylinder, break action with the trigger guard being used as a lever to make the front part of the gun slide forward and eject the spent cartridges.

Experimental FNA Pistola Automatica da Guerra “Sosso”

Designed by Giulio Sosso in and manufactured by Fabbrica Nazional d’Armi in Brescia, Italy c.1942, serial number 8A.
9mm Parabellum, 21-rounds magazine, holster stock, all steel.
Two interesting features to be noted here. First off, the magazine does not use a simple leaf spring to push a stack of cartridges up, but is in fact a contained metal belt of ammunition indexed with each shot. It is a unique design with arguably little gain in capacity for the extra cost it incurs, and one of the reason Italy did not adopt this design, deep in WW2 as it was. The second feature is a leather holster with a steel rig that doubles as a telescopic stock. Now that’s just plain awesome.
