PostSubject: OLD COLLECTORS ARMORY CATALOGUES   Fri Nov 05, 2010 11:53 pm

Anyone have 'em... I was looking through the "instructions" forum and saw that Doc had kindly posted an old MGC catalogue and I was wondering if anyone had a US Collectors Armoury catalogue from the 1970's / 1980's...

I used to love it as a kid, especially the slightly ridiculous Napoleon Solo drawing for the UNCLE p38 and the Clint Eastwood drawing for the 44 Magnum...

It would be a real treat/blast from the past if someone does have and is willing to post... I used to have dozens that have all disappeared.

Guys... this is amazing... such a trip down memory lane... back then it was hard to afford the stuff since I was about 12 so seeing the photos of the catalogues is fantastic because I literally have those pages etched in my mind...

It would be great to post the whole thing at some point... but it truly is great to see. And what a great forum for someone to take the time to scan and also put up the photos of the nickel plated colt as well!

Thanks guys.

That truly is trip down memory lane... thanks.

And it is funny that the Sterling is one of the cheapest SMG's in the catalogue and now it's one of the most valuable!

Again, thanks.

I have the 1985/1986 (I think) catalogue at home too, which if I remember correctly has a lot more guns and kits listed. I will check that one out.

Also, I just noticed that this thread was originally posted back in early November, so I don't know how I missed it the first time around. I hope I didn't steal mrclark's thunder when he resurrected this topic, but hope he still posts some pages from the catalogue he has.

Here's the gun pages from the 1985/1986 catalogue.
This time it includes kits and blank guns.
I haven't included a couple of pages which are virtually exact copies from the previous catalogue.

This is even getting me excited again! Smile

This was great. Thanks again... Just when I think "Oh, I have all the old replicas from the catalogue" I realize how many there actually were!!!!

It's also really interesting to see the prices... Some guns really haven't gone up that much in value.

Yeah thanks, not a problem at all.

There certainly were a lot of replica/model guns back then, but i think now there are actually more, if you get hold of them.
The laws are making it so hard, and because of this, I think it makes the prices go up.
"Supply and demand" as they say.

"nkoinuma" site has over 650 models described with pictures. Granted, many of these are variations of the same main model, like a multitude of MGC 1911 Colts. Counting just the main variants (not just different markings) there is over 300 including different barrel length, chambering etc). I would need to check how many distinct ones are there, perhaps around 150-200.

Check it here:

So all these were available in Australia back in the 80s as well... Question Or is it just the catalogue...

Jim, as far as I can remember, Wellington Surplus were importing all their stuff from Collectors Armory in the US, so I'd imagine that they might have either carried the stock or ordered them in on demand.
I do remember when I bought my first gun which was a Luger, that they had a whole front shop window full of hand guns and SMGs on display.

What I find surprising these days, is that they still sell a selection of guns which are mainly Denix, yet they are not allowed to sell any Japanese guns at all. It's a weird law!

Maybe...because Denix looks less realistic (more ugly), unable to cycle anything and with completely empty magazines (Japanese dummies can still somehow cycle dummy rounds) Question Or maybe you can help asking the guys from the shop to get more insights?

Another wild guess - Japanese dummy modelguns are OK but then the Aussie importer just don't want any trouble therefore stick with Denix only (Qld's Collector Armoury as well)...still you guys are better off than us in Sydney / Melbourne...

More pathetically (the law) - Tasmania used to be the most gun-friendly state but since Port Arthur even replicas are banned... Exclamation

Thank you! I really enjoy the catalogues! I still can remember the day when I first saw Marushin's M16 kit at a gun and knife store back in 1989/1990. I was hooked, but not yet old enough to buy one. Sadly these "assault weapons replicas" were banned in Germany 1993. Since 2003 they are legal again, and back in 2005 I began collecting.

So is it the reason that Dittrich only established in late 2003 after the ban of military look-a-like was lifted (sensitive German WWII weapon repros)?

Yes, exactly. Until 2003 everything looking lika a full automatic assault weapon was banned in Germany, no matter if it was a real semi-only firearm, a dummy/deact, a low-powered air gun or a toy.
