Two new 7.3 pistols added to our collection. Both these come from a Norwegian collection. Bought through D&B Militaria who are a section 5 dealer and do have a large stock list.

Info about the above pistols,

John Inglis Hi Power 9mm serial number starts 2T**** which dates it to December 1944 came with JI stamped mags. It shoots really well. One of the first 30,000 to be issued to British troops during WW2.

Colt Police Positive Special .38spl dated 1921 and is a (John Wilks Gunmaker London) re work of cutting down the barrel to 2 &3/4" and re fitting a fore sight. He was known to have done this work for SOE operatives working in German Occupied Europe. The late father of this collector was known to have been a SOE operative in Norway during WW2. His name is scratched inside the frame. This is in fantastic condition and again shoots well and no play in the cylinder.

Very nice pair Comrade :good:

That little Colt has some interesting history, it's a shame old guns can't talk as they'd have some stories to tell......

This Historic 7.3 collecting has grown. Well decided to pack in some of the long range rifle distances, so rifles got sold allowing this 7.3 interest to take it's place.
4 x more pistols.

Top left Danish Contract 1946 Browning Hi Power manufactured towards the end of the limited production run, 9mmx19.
Top Right British Army late T Series Browning Hi Power dated to around the end of 1986 manufacture, 9mmx19.
Bottom Right Colt 1911 Combat Elite dated to late 1986 .45acp
Bottom Left Armalon XDM Compact (british army trials one of 45 made only) 9mmx19.

Saw these in the flesh on the weekend, it's a brilliant collection, exactly what Sect7.3 is about, preserving rare heritage firearms.
