Hi guys

I have been a collector of military weapons for most of my life, specialising in full-auto for the last 25 years or so. I currently own 4 carbines; 1st issue M1 by Inland, 1st issue M1A1 by Inland, 2nd issue M1 by Saginaw, and an M2 by Inland. Over the years I have owned and used many carbines, and worked on a lot more. I am a full-time gunsmith (since 1969) and do a lot of restoration work on military weapons. This usually means rebuilding them back to original after they have been "improved" by previous owners! I also manufacture museum-grade, all-metal MG replicas for the collector and movie market. I have restored some military vehicles and have been involved in the Wanaka and Omaka air shows for some years as a re-enactor. I am based in North Canterbury.

Good to have you on board cheers
