The Association is a recognised collecting organisation and, as such, has a Chief Commissioner’s approval for its members to collect firearms (with appropriate licence), imitation firearms, swords, daggers and other variants of edged weapons.
David Roberge’s interest in antique arms is to ensure that they have fine European swords, daggers and armour from the Middle ages to the 20th century as well as Australian Aboriginal hunting weapons, tools, fighting weapons and other collectibles. You’ll find Some African weapons as well under Ethnographics.
We’ve also got several 18th and 19th century British Cannon on beautifully restored carriages.
The Association was formed in Victoria in 1979.
Main areas of cartridge collecting in Australia include Shotshells, Metallic Sporting, Military Small Arms, Packets and Associated Items. Many collectors overlap on a number of these main areas and, indeed, some collectors appear to cover the full spectrum of collecting options. On the other hand, some collectors specialise in only one aspect such as W.R.A.Co. or DWM headstamps.
