Default WW II Weapons

I collect and restore WW II weapons, mainly M1 Garands and M1 Carbines. I have over ten M1 Garands and over five carbines. They are fun and challenging to find, purchase and restore.

Saw one of this on display at the Champlin Fighter Museum down in Mesa, AZ back in the 90's..interesting concept about able to shoot around corners but not very practicable as I guess after a hundred rounds or so the barrel exploded from all of the stress and trapped gas. It's called a Krummlauf and were attached to the Stg44 and a MG42...very interesting but very stupid.
