PostSubject: Late 1800-early 1900 - In search of WW1-models   Thu Mar 10, 2016 10:52 am

Hi all. My first post, and I hope I´m in the right forum category.

I was recommended to look for answers at this great forum by my good friend 2Sharp.

I am trying to get my hands on some specific WW1-models. They need to look authentic enough to appear real on a detailed closeup image. It would also be great if the mechanism could be operated as on the original and appear real on an image.

Loan, rent och buy, all possibilities are interesting.

There are the items i am trying to get my hands on:

  1. Luger M/1917 Artillery
  2. Mars Automatic Pistol (Webley-Mars)
  3. Borchardt C-93 + holster
  4. Lancaster pistol
  5. Winchester M1895
  6. Mauser M1916
  7. Lewis Machinegun
  8. Hotchkiss M1909 Benet Mercie
  9. Bergmann MG15 n.A
  10. Chauchat (Fusil Mitrailleur Modele 1916)  
  11. Bergmann Schlesier MP18 (with or without bayonet and bayonet attachment)

Any help in this matter i greatly appreciated! Just a point in the right direction would be awesome!

Best regards!

Welcome to the forum! :-)

The following have been made as modelguns (others probably not):

  1. Luger M/1917 Artillery: Luger P08 has been released by a number of modelgun companies: MGC, Marushin, Nakata. Marushin and MGC have released artillery variant as well, in metal. No review, but this is fairly popular model that relatively often appears for sale - it was routinely exported to UK/USA.
  2. Borchardt C-93 + holster: released by HWS (Hartford) and by CAW (Craft Apple Works) quite recently. They are made of heavy-weight plastic (not metal) but are well done. Limited manufacturing run, but still quite available. CAW version is reviewed here: http://mp40modelguns.forumotion.net/t3862-caw-c-93-borchardt-modelgun  HWS version there: http://mp40modelguns.forumotion.net/t3310-coming-in-summer-borchardt-c-93-by-hartford
  3. Winchester M1895: M73 variant (cartridges in tube, not box magazine) was released as a "Wild West" gun in metal by MGC, and is quite popular (=often available). Several reviews here: http://mp40modelguns.forumotion.net/t2275-mgc-winchester-m1873-metal, http://mp40modelguns.forumotion.net/t2910-a-follow-on-review-of-the-mgc-m-73.  M1892 was released by CMC, it is more rare.
  4. Mauser M1916: popular model, released in many versions by MGC and Marushin. It is fairly often available for sale. You might want to check exact variant (M1916/M712)
  5. Bergmann Schlesier MP18: manufactured by Shoei in very limited quantities, full metal. Available rarely second-hand. Please see review for more information: http://mp40modelguns.forumotion.net/t1895-caw-mp18-custom-modified-to-fire-caps


If you are after specific details that make a model look like a specific issue, please doublecheck. Modelguns such as Luger or Broomhandle were released in a multitude of versions, with different markings (some real, some unreal, some blank).

Most of these modelguns can be available at PFCGUK (PM JohnnyV here) from UK. Borchardt is most likely available as import from Japan (PM Shazhib here). Other models might be offered by members here if you ask - please post "WTB: <model name>" in our marketplace subforum.

Hopefully this can get you started :-)

I haven't been active on the forums for a few years since I quit collecting modelguns Sad But I do lurk from time to time Smile
Some of the old guys might remember me.

I can certainly vouch for Knekt, he is solid and serious!
