Made of solid wood and steel, this German Barracks Rifle Holder is in EXCELLENT used condition! Due to the age, there are various marks, scratches, and dents, but nothing that detracts. Though it is a matching set, the base is much more heavily faded than the upper section, and all the colored lacquer has worn off. This is due to it having been on the ground for many years. Some areas of warping…and some sections that are loose…but this could easily be rectified by the winning bidder. Holds 9 rifles in total, which is normal, as the squad leader usually had an MP 38/40 (10 men per squad). There were numerous styles of rifle racks manufactured throughout the war, but they all follow this general style and pattern. No maker marks that I can see. The back features the remains of some old newspaper…which could have been attached post-war. I originally acquired this to display my K98 and G43 Rifles…but found a slightly better one that I decided to use instead. Would make a SUPERB addition to any collection or display!
Payment should be made within 7 business days at the end of the auction unless buyer contacts me for other arrangements. I accept all forms of payment.
