A number of years ago the Buffalo Bill Cody Museum auctioned off a number of "modern" weapons -- those not fitting in with the "western" theme of the collection.  These weapons were from the Winchester collection.  I believe that a number of class III weapons were purchased by R.J. Perry, notably a number of Johnson l.m.g.s including some very rare models -- the M1945, possibly the "T" series of belt-fed Johnson machine guns, etc.  These were offered in a R.J. Perry catalog.  I've been trying to find this catalog -- or someone willing to copy for me the pages that have the Johnsons for sale.  Does anyone have this catalog and would they be willing to copy it for me?  I can't afford a great deal, but will compensate for the copying and mailing costs.  (or better yet, scan it -- maybe post it here. . .)  Note, that R.J. Perry was offering these guns is to the best of my recollection -- might have been another Class III dealer.

Do not have a catalog, but my dad bought many of his guns from Mr Perry including one of the Johnson 1941 LMGs
