What's the backstory here? Seems like a VERY wide variety of weapons, from Mausers to G3s.

That's just sad, what a waste.

So no one knows where these pictures are from?

I told you in the title may make you sick, made my eyes water a bit, I no most of those are Illegal to own, but why couldnt they go to a museum? Instead of just sitting there to rust away into nothing. Or make them non firing and sell, I'd like to have one, just to have one. Its just insane.

I would go there to rescue every last Thompson and K98! Can any of those be salvaged? The years of rust is immense, but if some were never used and still had "some" grease/oil/something, maybe ... maybe ... Hopefully it wasn't doused with saltwater and other corrosive material.

That's just WRONG!!! It's like kicking a puppy or kitten! Or, pushing an elderly person down the stairs! Or, having a Hannah Montana CD in your car!

I bet the folks at Empire Arms knows about this "graveyard of guns." I'll send them an email.
I just found this: http://my.opera.com/Mathilda/albums/show.dml?id=84098. Combloc weapons.

I want at least one of each gun there and I'd be happy. I'm sure with all those guns we could put a few together, Let me no if they email you back!

You think it would be worth it for whatever South East Asian country this is to build a warehouse to store them in with some dehumidifiers and a blast of oil once (or more) a year...

If anyone knows where this is, I woould be interested in starting a restoration project, make them non-fireable and sell them to people who will treat them right! I would love to have a non functional M-60!!!

Looks like Vietnam. I'm guessing these are all weapons that the US Military left behind when we turbo'ed our butt's outta there. I mean, we were pushing helicopters off the decks of Aircraft carriers into the oceans just to help in the evac.
