I recently visited a gun vault in one of the major WWII battle areas of Europe. Here are a few pics for you gun guys.

Looks like the collection at the National Museum of Military History in Diekirch, Luxembourg.

 

My buddy sent me some pics when he visited. They also have racks of MG52s, M1917 watercooled MGs, 1919s, FALs, grease guns etc.

 

Looks like a cool place.

Those are FN-49s. Manufactured in Belgium. Luxembourg had something like 5000 of them (could be wrong on that). Chambered for .30-06 and a very nice shooting rifle.

to all who have served!
