|WPN: .44 Magnum Revolvers
|WPN: The Sterling Submachine Gun
|WPN: The PK Machine Gun
|WPN: The Stoner 63 Weapons System|
WPN: The G3 Battle Rifle
Entering West German service in the late 1950s, the select-fire G3 battle rifle was a vital part of the NATO arsenal during the Cold War. A major export success, this rugged and versatile firearm continues to equip many countries into the present day.
WPN: .44 Magnum Revolvers
From the mid-1950s, handguns chambered for the .44 Magnum cartridge began to appear. Iconic revolvers such as the Smith & Wesson Model 29 and the Ruger Blackhawk were later joined by more recent models such as the Colt Anaconda.
WPN: The Sterling Submachine Gun
First deployed during World War II, the Sterling submachine gun equipped British forces for four decades from 1953. Accurate and reliable, it saw widespread combat across the world during the Cold War, from Vietnam to the Falklands.
WPN: The PK Machine Gun
This formidable general-purpose machine gun entered Soviet service in 1961 and remains in front-line use today. Widely exported and available in a host of variants, it is a gas-operated, belt-fed weapon firing from an open bolt.
WPN: The Stoner 63 Weapons System
Eugene Stoner’s innovative modular weapons system – capable of being configured as an assault rifle, carbine, automatic rifle and light, heavy or fixed machine gun – saw combat with US Marines and US Navy SEALs during and after the Vietnam War.
