Welcome to our Website

home image 1 The retail Militaria industry has changed beyond recognition in the 30 years that we have been trading, initially 1990-2014 from our Harrogate shop where we were registered firearms dealers as well as specialising in historical militaria for collectors and re-enactors. Some people may remember us on our stalls at Arms and Miltaria Fairs, Re-enactment events and Military Vehicle shows. We have been trading on the internet since 1998.


Over the years Government and EU legislation has turned our business , which was always niche, into more of a hairline crack. Chris has now retired and I, Carolyn Johnson, am continuing with the online shop, but concentrating on vintage and antique (military and civilian) items which were quintessential and non-remarkable to everyday life- guns knives and swords for hunting, survival, for the militia, for the soldier.


In the past we have prided ourselves on supplying quality replica , deactivated and non firing guns and swords for historical re-enactment of many periods, as we have been participants in the hobby , and collectors ourselves over the years. Sadly this is no longer possible, due to the crippling effects of Government and EU legislation. If this situation miraculously changes we will resume the sale of those items.


I hope you will find something of interest on our site. I still have a lot of field equipment , uniform items and re-enactment items and general bygones that may be of interest or that you may be searching for, so if you do not see what you are looking for on the listings here. It may be worth dropping me an email, or making a phone call or text.
