Christchurch GUN SHOW 23 July:


Gun Show/Arms and Militaria

Riccarton Park Function Centre (Ricccarton Raceway)

Saturday 23 July

Following our very successful ninth show in 2015 (including the presentation of the Best Display Robin Rapley Memorial Trophy) we are proud to announce that the next Mainland Arms and Militaria Gun Show Special Features are a WW100 anniversary- trench warfare display and an engraving display by internationally renowned engraver Andrew Biggs.

Despite the earthquakes in ChCh sellers, collectors and the general public attended the 2015 show in record numbers - a real indication of their resilience and desire to carry on with what matters in their lives. Many stating "I was so impressed by the displays I needed more time to see them all so I had to come back later in the day".

Many children (including some big kids) had a go at bayonet fighting, stripping Machine Guns and having a ’sword fight’ with a Knight in shining armour. With increasing public interest in celebrating 100 years since WWI significant displays of Signalling Equipment, the NZ Mounted Rifles mannequin horse with saddle equipment and Hotchkiss Machine Gun and, personal items and equipment from Gallipoli Campaign attracted much attention.

For this our 10th Show many world-class displays of items from the Boer War, WW1, WW2 and the Vietnam era including a complete RFC mannequin display, a Galloping Maxim Machine Gun and the Hotchkiss Machine Gun plus equipment have been confirmed along with sales tables and collectors displays of firearms, ammunition, antiques, medals, badges, uniforms, collectables, swords, bayonets, and books. Also on display will be several military vehicles, machine gun stripping and a medieval camp.
