    Great article, I like it! :D

    Ah yes, the “Sturmgewehr”, world’s first operational assault rifle, an idea taken to unprecedented success by Kalashnikov.

    My favorite, the Colt 1911, semi- automatic pistol, highly reliable, easy to maintain, .45 caliber- you get hit with that, you don’t get back up. It would still be in use today by U.S. forces except it isn’t compliant with NATO.

  3. Qawi says:

    Gotta love these museum shots, BUT you made a pretty big mistake with the MP44. It’s the worlds first assault rifle, not an SMG. A milestone of sorts which makes the mistake bad.

    If you’re ever in the states, go see the US Military Academy Arms Museum in upstate New York… awesome.

    You forgot Gary Power’s U-2 aircraft. Very interesting exhibit!

  7. Luis says:

    Very good, man. English, german, americans and russian weapons, all together.

  8. CZenda says:

    Picture 36 very possibly shows Vz.26 Czech machine-gun made under license in GB as “BREN” (BRno-ENfield). The weapon was also used by Wehrmacht after the Munich Betrayal.
    It is quite funny when the admin tries to convert the well-known .45 to 11,43 mm :-D
    What is the caption under M-16?

  9. Brad M says:

    This focused on just the weapons. There was so much more interesting stuff in the museum.

    All the German Standards, including Hitler’s.

    Khukov’s Star’s of Russia, including one that looked to be unique to him.

    The U2 spy plane that was shot down.

    Even the mobile kitchen exhibit was kinda cool. This is just weaponry…some of it was cool…but most of it was just….guns.

    I like the sabres. It sounds like a wonderful museum. Thank you for the post. :)

  11. SSSR says:

    The Germans make nice hand guns.I know a guy who has a German .45 hand gun that can be shot by right and left handed people.The tip of the barrel is vented to reduce the recoil.I only held it for 30 seconds,I wish I owned it.
