Below you will find links to pages maintained by various collectors and dealers which contain some very useful information of interest to the collector. I do not maintain any of these and am not responsible for their content or accuracy. NEVER take anything you read for gospel just because it's on a web page or in a book. ALWAYS try to confirm facts from several sources. The following sources are ones that I've found useful and I think you will too. Happy Surfing!
This is one of the very few commercial links you will find posted here. These folks have a nice selection of ammunition for those of us that enjoy shooting our old military arms and their prices are excellent. Need ammo? GO HERE!
My Revolver Page
Good basic historical and Identification information about British Military Webley and Enfield revolvers.

Bryan has several sections of interest to the militaria collector and has been gracious enough to allow me to point them out to you.

POLISH BAYONET PAGE
Dedicated to foreign bayonet collectors, because this topic is unknown outside Poland. In many western catalogues, Polish bayonets are incorrectly identified. Even in Kiesling there are mistakes. It will be nice if these pages help collectors know Polish bayonets better.

Siegfried's bayonet web site. Excellent free info and pics on a great variaty of bayonets. Very actively updated and Siegfried strives for accuracy.
