Our guns used in a movie!

Lets crush it were asked to supply some weapons for a movie being filmed in South London. Being one to never say no, I raided the armoury for Mad Max style guns including MG42, MG15, Vickers gun and the mighty Lanchester, plus a few other oddities. This is just a small collection of the weapons that we have at Tanks a Lot.

The director seemed happy and I had a great time. If you are looking to hire guns for any event then get in touch with the tab at the top of this page. Look forward to hearing from you.

Welcome to our armoury in Northamptonshire, one of the most extensive privately owned collections in the country. Here you can find over 200 weapons from the 18th century to the 21st century from all over the world. The armoury is sectioned into nationality and type, everything from our smallest Webley-Scott pistol to the biggest Browning .50 cal heavy machine gun. We have an American made Luger and an Egyptian army Smith & Wesson revolver, the inevitable AK47 and the rare MP44.

There are projector and Wi-Fi facilities for conferencing (capacity up to 36 people) and a military themed monthly film club is soon to be launched.
