3 posts in this topic

After seeing the Solothurn S18-1000 posted on the NFA Market board .......

I thought it was time to repost this Old 1957 advertisement.......

wasn't this the 20mm used in ..... Saving Private Ryan ...... the street ambush scene ?

I wonder how many they had to sell ?

surely every one over here came from this company ....... 

notice this was even before postal zip codes where used .......

I heard way back that around 300-400 were imported. A handful of S18-1100 select fire models were imported too.

sadly, I had just ordered 2 LAHTI's And 4 cases of ammo when these showed up , and no more funding was coming for a while, then they were gone.  it was a bit strange because there was no advance talk about them, they just "arrived" so I think it was a quickly closed deal added to a larger purchase. MR EARLL did get one with the wheeled mount that I managed to use some of my ammo in at a MARANA shoot and it broke my heart. one of the finest machined, smoothest running weapons ever encountered by me.  however the new "WINDRUNNER .50 semi was a definite close second in both respects. too bad the management was not up to par and they never really happened enough to do any good. the SA-18 is one of those things that will give as much joy looking and touching as shooting. ANZIO's new ammo makes all 3 very real for who ever gets this one. (sigh)  mike
