SN 1316. Cal. 20mm. 51″ bbl. Swiss model S18-1000 semi-auto anti-tank gun manufactured in 1940. Includes bi-pod, two orig mags, and 15 rnds of ammunition. Both large and small orig muzzle breaks present, as well as thread protector for end of bbl. External SN’s match. Integral optic present and serviceable. Also included is the orig gunner’s bag serilized to the gun with orig cleaning rod, large mainspring, and gunner’s tool wallet with tools apparently nearly complete. This is a National Firearms Act item and requires BATF approval for transfer. This item is fully transferable on an ATF form 3 or 4, Curio & Relic eligible, as a destructive device (DD). CONDITION: Overall appearance is very good especially on main body of receiver assembly with a deep lustrous blue thinning at the high edges and at the top rear of the receiver. Bbl rates about good with a brown scale to a brown patina which should clean up nicely with appropriate effort. Thread protector very fine. Muzzle breaks good and very good respectively. Tools and canvas gunner’s pack are fine, leather of gunner’s tool kit flaking but still very strong and serviceable. Mags are very good with some scattered oxidation. Rubber of shoulder backplate very fine, supple, and serviceable. Mechanics are fine. Bore is very fine, extremely sharp strong rifling, with some shine and some light pitting. Julia’s makes no warrantee on ammunition. Ammunition with 1941 headstamped cases is tarnished with some spots of corrosion but powder does move within the cases. We fired some for promotional video and it functioned flawlessly. This is a very nice Solothurn particularly with it’s matching gunner’s bag, ammunition, and muzzle breaks. Quite an impressive piece. 52520-1 JWK (18,000-28,000) C&R – Lot 2168
