Robin Rapley Memorial Best Display Winner Cowboy Western and Black Powder Pistol Shooting Hugh Bullmore and David Keast receive the trophy from Ed Rapley

For the 9th year this open to the public show provided those interested in all things arms and militaria an opportunity to display, buy and sell. With increasing public interest in celebrating 100 years since WWI significant displays of Signalling Equipment, the NZ Mounted Rifles mannequin horse with saddle equipment and Hotchkiss Machine Gun and, personal items and equipment from Gallipoli Campaign attracted much attention.


Attendees were greeted at the Riccarton Race Course by Military vehicles parked at the bottom of the steps leading to the 2 rooms full of sales tables and displays.


Other world-class displays evoked much interest and included arms and militaria from many eras and countries. Again this year it was noted that many people stayed for much longer with a growing number coming and going several times.


World renowned engraver Andrew Biggs spent all day explaining the art of engraving to a continuous large group of onlookers.​​



This years MAM’s Gun Show date is Saturday July 22 – the last weekend of the July school holidays – so make your bookings early.
