for sale - German, British, French, Italian, USA, Russia and E. Block, etc. Email me with specific requests. This is the
only list I have at this time.
Guns have only two enemies, rust and politicians.


I am still looking for ANY information regarding the European Use of the Original Costons flares from 1859 through 1881. Photo's, Patents, contracts & orders, ANY INFORMATION IS NEEDED ! !
