On April 30th, the late Richard Wray’s machine guns will go under the hammer. To say the Army veteran (82nd Airborne) and businessman assembled one the world’s greatest collection of machine guns would be like saying that Abbey Clancey has it going on.

  1. Absolutely amazing. A collection as such, would make for a great firearm museum in and of itself. Individual sales of these guns will likely draw staggering amounts of money…….

  2. Feinstein should be force to attend and watch them change hands. It could blow a fuse in her head. Schumer should be forced to attend as well.

      • Very Low. These are of course auction estimates, which years of watching antiques roadshow with my mom taught me, are generally the low end of what something is worth.

        But still, there is no way that the two Thompsons and the M-16 are going to go for such low prices.

    • the world war 2 and earlier stuff would cost that much even without NFA nonesense due to age, but 4k+ for cheap SMG’s is infuriating otherwise

  3. I seriously hope these don’t get bought by some museum. It would be great if they are sold to a bunch of different people to be shot and enjoyed for years to come.

    • Even worse, they’ll get bought by investors. At least with a museum, you’d be able to see the demilled husk of the gun, and imagine what it would be like to fire it. These guns will probably never see the light of day, or be seen by the public again.

    • I was just coming to post about that. There’s a chinese copy of a 96 Mauser and an Astra 600 listed as .9mm. I guess the .9mm cartridge predates the current fad for them. Or is this an older, rimmed .9mm that’s incompatible with the new ones?

      Some of the guns are listed as “.30 calibur” and I’m thinking “that doesn’t help…”. .308 conversion? .30-06? Something else?

        • It’s embarrassing that a major auction house, capable of attracting people willing to buy guns of this caliber (ducks and covers due to bad pun) would make such a mistake. I mean, this is the kind of mistake one would expect to see on the pages of the New York Times, and not in the catalog of a major auction house.
