Item Description:

.5 inch Vickers High Velocity class D. The box is in great shape. I will let the pictures do most of the talking. If your reading this, you likely know how rare this bird is. Some of the tips are protruding out of the bottom just a bit. Stamped 8/1935 on the back. Google search the following for some useful info: " [Knob Creek 2016] .5 Vickers High Velocity from 1935 ". Nice little article about the contents as well as some relevant comments down below. This box appears to be the same batch 91 as pictured in the article. NOTE: Must ship with full insurance.

Must send proof of age for ammunition sales. By purchasing, you are certifying that you are of age and legally allowed to possess/own said item. MAKE SURE THIS ITEM IS LEGAL TO POSSESS WHERE YOU LIVE. I WILL NOT SHIP WHERE ILLEGAL. I WILL CHECK.

All of my ammo listings are sold as components only and is intended for ammunition collectors. As with any ammunition, especially surplus and antique ammo, live ammunition can be unpredictable and I cannot verify suitability to discharge in a firearm. Any and all of my live ammunition listings are offered for it's collector value only. My live ammo listings are often manufactured decades if not a century ago and over that time it may have been stored in less than desirable conditions. It may look good on the outside but looks can often be deceiving. By purchasing you are releasing me from any and all liability for any of my sales/listings.


At the conclusion of the auction, I will send out an email regarding how to pay. I am currently not set up for the gunbroker checkout system at this time (subject to change). I accept both checks and PayPal. Payment should be made within 7 days after listing’s closing. PA RESIDENTS PAY 6% SALES TAX.


DO NOT SEND MONEY TO MY EMAIL ADDRESS. IT WILL NOT WORK. I will send an invoice after I know that you would like to pay with PayPal. Price reflects cash/check discount off of total price. Add 3% for fees.

Check/Money Order:

Mail works just as well for me. Expect a reasonable amount of time for mail to get to me and for the check to clear my bank.


The shipping price is as listed above to lower 48 only. If you want your package insured, let me know, otherwise, the package will ship with the minimum. I am not responsible if your package is lost, damaged, or stolen (In any of those unfortunate situations, I will make every reasonable effort to make things right and fight for you, not against you). I WILL ship to alternate addresses if requested, HOWEVER, it is your responsibility to confirm the correct delivery address both BEFORE and AFTER I provide you with the tracking number. I can only make corrections to the shipping label when the box is in my possession. Otherwise, expect it to be delivered to your listed address because when I do shipping, I copy and paste the shipping address that Gunbroker provides me.

Non-Ammo items will ship USPS PRIORITY unless otherwise stated. Live ammo and primers are shipped UPS GROUND.

I apologize for the high shipping prices somewhat out of my control, however, I do take great care to make sure your package will arrive safe and sound. YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR. I ship using professional packing materials most of the time. I TAKE PACKAGING VERY SERIOUSLY. Unlike other sellers here on Gunbroker as well as the big online retailers, I take time and use common sense when packaging your item. I am a collector myself so I know how to handle delicate ammo boxes, paper patched bullets, etc. all the way to bulky military surplus crates of munitions and everything in between. I never had a problem with an item that was damaged during transport and I want to keep it that way. Check my feedback to verify ;)

Once payment and ID (if necessary) is received, there will be a tracking number sent to you via E-mail. I now ship towards the beginning and the end of the work week. If you need or want your item ASAP, please let me know and I will do my best to accommodate.


No returns. Caveat Emptor! Ask before you buy. If you buy a magazine or grips for the wrong generation or version of your gun then that is on you. IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO DETERMINE IF THE ITEM YOU ARE BUYING WILL WORK FOR YOU. That is your responsibility to confirm compatibility and I will do everything in my power to make sure you buy the right item. I don’t want to sell you an item that won’t work for you! All of my listings are sold AS-IS. I try my hardest to represent the listing as honestly as possible. I often take pictures showing the most significant FLAWS in the listing so you can expect no surprises when you receive your item. If I made a mistake in the listing or if something is inaccurate, please inform me of the mistake. I am no expert.

In the case that I ship you the wrong item (it has happened more times that I am man enough to admit), I will of course pay for the return shipping of the erroneous item. Upon receipt of the item, I will immediately send out the correct item. I will do what it takes to make it right


Please bear in mind that I am not a brick and mortar gun store. I do not have employees (subject to change). I personally handle any and all business operations in addition to my regular workload. My focus is oddball ammunition, uncommon items, discontinued or otherwise hard to find ANYTHING. I often have to travel near and far to purchase odd, uncommon, rare, and interesting items that I can offer my customers on Gunbroker. This takes much gas, time, and effort to accomplish this. AmmoOkkie has since turned from a hobby to a tax-paying and law-abiding business. I often have to pay top dollar for these items, so if it seems that my starting prices are high, they probably are and I do apologize for that. I try to be as competitive as possible, but there needs to be meat on the bones for me otherwise I can not seek out and find these items then turn around and offer them to the Gunbroker community. Feel free to make any reasonable offer, but please bear in mind that I have to compete against the big gun stores, online retailers, and other individual sellers on Gunbroker.

Please allow several days for Email replies as my work schedule is often chaotic and I often do not have the answers to your inquiry until I get back to my AmmoOkkie office. Please leave a voicemail with all relevant info if you call and I can not pick up.
