Wow, the 2014 Show was our best yet with world-class diorama and reenactment displays and a wide range of sales tables.

Despite the earthquakes in ChCh sellers, collectors and the general public attended 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 handling the pistols, stripping Machine Guns and having a ’sword fight’ with a Knight in shining armour.

Following our very successful ninth show in 2014 (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 Feature is the WW100 anniversary.

Many world-class displays of items from WW1, including a NZ Mounted Rifles horse display (saddle gear, uniforms, guns and equipment), have been confirmed along with sales tables and collectors displays of firearms, ammunition, antiques, medals, badges, uniforms, collectables, swords, bayonets, scale models and books. Also on display will be military vehicles, a bayonet practice station, machine gun stripping and a WW2 German living history campsite.
