Some oldie WWII pistols out of the safe, .22LR Training Nagant, Late War Vis P35, AC43 P38, 22 pre war PPK, 1939 Russian TT33, 1936 S/42 Luger and a USGI Remington Rand 1911a1, all of them matching and non import marked, would like to pick up a nambu t14 and a Webley of sort to round out the collection evenly. Had a lead on a Canadian WWII High power a week ago too but the seller backed out and demanded more money :fire:

The stories they could tell..... I'm truly jealous.

Wow. That's quite a collection. The Luger alone is worth a ton of money.

Ive become more and more drawn to these kinds of guns at shows/collections. I fear I'm becoming addicted to living history. Actually I embrace it. :)

Just sitting here looking at the rather unusual .22lr training nagant and wondering how it even got here to the States. The finely checkered grip has already been worn down quite smoothly by years of use, and i suspect this pistol has seen more than just "training" since 1935

Very nice WWII collection you have there. A Nambu, Webley (or Enfield) revolver, Hi-Power, and maybe a S&W Victory Model revolver would round out the group quite nicely.

Very nice! I shot my 1941 Mauser P-08 Luger for the first time in years this past weekend. 30 rounds of FMJ, then a few mags of JHP defense loads. No hiccups, perfect function, and superb accuracy. I have owned this Luger since 1995, and it has NEVER malfunctioned with any ammo, including my reloads.

You might also want to add the very fine Beretta sidearms, the Model 1934 and the Model 1935 to the collection as well.

Uh there is no P-35 high power in the photo. There IS a Polish Random 9mm though.

And I do have a WWII Beretta 1934 .380 (made in 1941.)

I don't have anywhere near as many WWII handguns as the OP but I do have two. One is an Enfield No.2 and the other is a CZ 27 in the original holster and matching magazine.

Kind of hard to go back and forth between "collectible war trophies" and "tacticool new guns", my collection is pretty much split between these two catagories and as much as love my old steel guns the most trusted handgun in my safe and on my hip is a Glock 19 (i know i know!)

Having diversity in a gun collection seems to me to be a good thing as it gives you a wider field of interest to pursue new and different guns that appeal to you. A lot of people I know kind of get locked into a particular type of gun (latest and greatest, tactical, competition, autoloader/revolver only, CCW, etc.), and don't look at much anything else outside of their particular field of interest.

Very interesting question. Given the action of the Nagant, that seals the B-C gap, in a .22lr with a can, one of those could probably be awfully quiet. You wouldn't even have the sound of the slide racking as one would in a semi-auto.
