I'm not going to venture a guess. Just wanted to say "Cool Pics" and "tag".

Most of 'em I know... but the pistols at the beginning- no clue.

So list the ones you do know.

The idea is for everyone to take a stab at it and see who gets 'em all right first!

I'd post every gun pic on my PC, but I'm quite certain either ARFCOM or the site hosting the pictures would collapse into a black hole if I did so.

Cable users would scream in agony as they died of old age waiting for the images to load. Dial-up users wouldn't even make the attempt.

Seriously, I've probably got several THOUSAND images of guns, knives, swords, jets, tanks, and artillery on my computer. Every now and then I like to find some obscure ones and toss in a few easy ones for everybody to guess at.

A lot of times I throw in guns I can't identify just so somebody will tell me what they are.

What, everybody's been stricken clueless all of a sudden?

I see a bingham and a witness protection 12ga and a luger. The rest, I dunno.

1 is a street sweeper, or a striker 12. But it looks like it has too big of a barrel, rotating cylinder 40mm?
5 is a ppsh isnt it?
8 is a french Mas.

#5 is definately a Pe-Pe-Sha

#9 - Is that a Mat 49?

#10 is some kind of Remington 12ga AOW

Definately intrigued by #6. Some kind of stamped POS subgun from the Baltics would be my guess.

No fvckn clue....yet!

Finnish L-35 Lahti 9mm. Not the Swede M40, the M40 has different grips & has a small knob (cocking indicator??) on the rear. The trigger guard is larger on the Swede M40 also.


5) img326.imageshack.us/img326/4251/11231084924145no.jpg


Either a Soviet PPSh41 or the ChiCom Type 50 smg.


6) img326.imageshack.us/img326/2520/11226099816160ka.jpg


Soviet PPS43 or ChiCom Type 54 smg. The plastic grips would seem to make it a Type 54 IIRC, the Soviet PPS43 usually have wood grips.



7) img326.imageshack.us/img326/9133/11209963668674fq.jpg


German Borchardt semiauto pistol. Grandfather of the Luger (toggle action) & C-96 Mauser (7.63x25 cartridge).


8) img326.imageshack.us/img326/1287/11227874011039oj.jpg


French Mas 36 bolt action.


9) img87.imageshack.us/img87/3421/11205525096454gb.jpg


South African "Commando" Sanna 77 open bolt semiauto carbine. IIRC it's based on the Czech Cz25 smg.


10) img87.imageshack.us/img87/6339/11228619794200hv.jpg


Remington 870 AOW. Wilson Arms "Witness Protection" model??

The PPS43 won't win any beauty contests but some consider it the best SMG of WWII. Designed & produced during the seige of Leningrad. The guns pretty much went straight from the production line to the front line grunts while the welds were still warm IIRC. After the seige ended the fit & finish improved. The Ministry Of Truth pretty much expunged any mention of it after the war.

Well, I can honestly say SOME of us REALLY know our guns.

Anybody care to try IDing number 3? That's the only one I don't know.
