Theoretically, where does one buy weapons that look like picrel? Any online dealers or specific sellers that do this?

        Not all of em are fake. The ones where its some rusty pos wallhanger sword and they "restore" it it the most halfassed wrong ways are real. Any of them where they have multiple videos up in a month are fake as hell.

            He seems to know what he's talking about. He has videos where he talks about the difference between citric and oxalic acids as rust removers (and why he often doesn't use either), the differences between bluing methods, and various other minor details about restoration processes.

    It's difficult in the first and even second world because they hold no value as antiques, yet they can't be readily resold as scrap (or even abandoned, in certain jurisdictions) by whatever entities come into possession of them, because they were once functioning firearms. That leads to them being destroyed in most cases.

    You are basically looking for to scavenge around the periphery of an archaeological site for just a few mangled examples. The same logic as scavenging junkyards applies – you need to be an unobtrusive presence and a quick buck for whoever owns / supervises the shitpile.

    Contacting importers who are definitely sitting on Z Grade garbage acquired as part of a larger deal, like royal tiger in ethiopia, is one approach. If you're in the US, there's also the tactic of antiquing like you're an interior decorator / Hollywood set designer. Nonfunctional old arms are bought as wallhangers by that crowd, often enough that people in the industry know to hold onto them because eventually they'll be sold.

    If you pursue the latter idea, absolutely don't let on that you're working on restoration unless you're super confident in the seller(s).

      A third option in the US is to buy some scrap guns and make them worse, on private property. Doing this chemically is a waste of time, because it results in conditions that won't be replicated in real found artifacts. But exposing them to the elements, getting them in weird shitty storage states, and so forth can accelerate natural aging.

      Similar to old-school forgery techniques, or idk, those forensic corpse farms.

    From some farmer in Moldova, Serbia or Albania for AKs, from estern European metal detecting guys for ww2 stuff, for anything in the west you can check insurance companies dealing with flood insurance for basements. They sometime get hundreds of flood damaged guns if there is a large flood and a lot of homes get flooded and people often keep guns in sages in basements. Often the insurance will just dispose of the weapons or leave them to the previous owners but sometimes you could discuss with them to buy some in particular if they deal with flooding damages often in areas where both gun ownership and floods are common.

    How many do you want?
    Museums are full of them, Laos, Cambodia, khazakistan, chechnia, they're kept as souvenirs rather than as military surplus.

    If you've got the money I can get you Vietnam era air wing weapons, ww2 coastal arty, yugo tank guns, soviet light field arty, all either demilled or rusted beyond the point of use. You just call the department of culture and buy it off one of the ministers attaches. You can even import them as war goods because they're demilled, I think you have to go through a registered escrow and import agent but that's just like getting your guns through a gun store, really just a tax.

      If you want weapons that can be restored to working order, my advice would be to get a demilled museum piece sent without the serialed parts, then just use it as a parts kit. If you REALLY want to restore tax stamped gun parts unironically buy them off armslist, junk like that is probably the only reason to use that site. And that's all legal.

    I used to enjoy restoration videos until I saw someone "restoring" something that I understood how to restore myself, and they did a nightmare job on it. A few people called him out in the comments, but hundreds of people who had no idea what they were looking at rushed to defend his "beautiful job" and call them jealous. Now I can't watch these videos anymorw because I assume it's the same grift.

      Not OP but that's why I pretty much only watch BackyardBallistics and actual gunsmiths on YT that restore stuff. Other than that a lot of the time it's a lot of "oh my god what the frick are you doing" and thirdie "bought this off Alibaba and chucked it in the river for a month" """""restorations""""".

        My favorite was the cat shit special. My second favorite is the one where he started refurbing a rifle, only to discover that it was destructively demilled (therefore unsafe to get into shooting form).

          I have, actually.

          If you go to gun shows you can find rusted to frick Mauser or Arisaka barreled actions for as low as $60.

          I've got my eyes on a gunshow in my area so I'm hoping to see something salvageable

          Go magnet fishing in a shithole like Detroit, you'll find tons of goodies in the rivers just outside the city.

          There's a pretty good hood area near where I am but I suspect most of the guns wont have been there for long enough to get a good coat of rust. Still, worth a shot.
