    The rifle in the photo with the Johnson is a Pedersen self-loader. The ZH29 is in fact a ZH29 (they are rare, but do show up). The top LMG in the photo with the RPK is a Msdsen variant, and I think the middle one is a modified Japanese Type 11 (not too confident on that, though). The guns with the MG42 are both BAR variants. The 1919A6 is missing it's stock and booster, and the gun below it is a Johnson 1944. In one of the other LMG photos, the Bren is actually a ZB26, and the guns below it are a Chatellerault and an MG13.

    Cool collection! They really have some neat stuff. There was a lot of interesting development and modification done by the Chinese, and it would be great to see a good collection of it.

    Probably think that the top machine gun has been mislabeled as a M1919 when it is probably a ANM2 .30-caliber machine gun converted to the "stinger" field modification popular with Marines.

    I totally missed that, I don't know what its but it seems to be a cut-down bolt action that has been rechambered to .30 Carbine and converted to accept M1 carbine mags.

    That looks to be a Soviet-era Maxim-Tokarev and not an AN-M2 "Stinger."

    The feed block and particularly the crank handle are what give it away, these dated from when they were trying to build a "lightweight" MG sometime in the middle 1920's before adopting the DP-27.

    Some very interesting and even surprising (to me at least) firearms there.
