I am Stefan from Sweden.

In the beginning of my collecting I collect Swedish military rifles, pistols

and revolvers but when I understood that I could afford old Winchester lever actions and Colt SAA revolvers I sold my Swedish collection and started to collect guns from the so called “American Wild West” which have been an interest for my whole life so to speak.

Anyway, it is getting harder and harder to get gun permits here in Sweden so now I focus more on different kind of knives and bayonets which also is a big interest for me.

I do not have many American bayonets and military knives but I want to buy some….

Anyway before buying I know a lot of reference literature is a must because there are many fakes out there and I also think it will be a big help to be a member of a forum like this.

Thank you so very much for letting me in!

Welcome Stefan, I just spent Sunday with my friends and your countrymen Sabaton and HammerFall. I gave them a tour of the WWII submarine USS Cod. Good luck on the bayonet collection! You will find many nice resources here.    Scott

Hello Stefan, welcome to the forum! Think it`s the same all over Europe with gun license, not only in Sweden.
