Auction 8. Thies & Schmid Gun Auctions (Timed Auction)

Our 8th auction with 200 lots of carefully selected firearms will be held as a timed auction. We have already uploaded ca. 100 lots for you and will continue to add new lots over the coming week.

The bidding function is activated and after registration you will be able to place sealed bids on our website, which can only be viewed by you.

From 29 June 2024, the lots will automatically expire one after the other at intervals of 2 minutes. If bids are placed within the last 60 seconds, the time frame will be extended by 1 minute every time a new bid is placed. Each bidder thus has the opportunity to react to the last bid submitted.

In addition to some early firearms that are not subject to any gun license, the offer includes a large selection of selected, primarily German military ordnance weapons from the 1st and 2nd World Wars, including two G/43s, a Mauser G/41, a whole number of rare Luger 08 pistols as well as rare weapons made for the German troops by FN, Radom, Astra, Beretta, etc.

Among the military ordnance weapons of the German Empire (1871-1918), the extremely rare rifle of the German South West Africa police from 1900 and a selection of fine examples from almost all years of production of long and short Luger 08 pistols stand out in particular.

The starting prices of this auction were set at extremely moderate levels. You can safely enter sealed bids of any amount, which will only ever be used by the auction programme to outbid the next lowest bid by one bid ingriment.

All lots can be viewed by appointment. Please call or email us.

We are happy to answer any questions you might have at any time.
