The Tower of London’s Golden Guns

    Jesse emailed in these photos taken by his brother at the Tower of London. I have never seen photos of these guns before. My favorite is the revolver.

    SIG P220 P226 (incorrectly labeled by the museum)
    Smith & Wesson Model 586 . Note the diamonds on cylinder, cylinder release and front sight.
    Sterling submachine gun
    Browning Hi-Power

    It is sad that some of these guns were confiscated by the police from enthusiasts.

    [ Many thanks to Jesse and his brother for the photos. ]
