International Military Antiques
International Military Antiques, Inc, based in Gillette, New Jersey, is one of the largest seller of military collectibles in the world. It was founded in 1981 by Christian Cranmer. His son Alex joined him in 2004.
In 2004 Christian Cranmer completed his 35-year-long attempt to convince the Nepal government to sell him over 50,000 antique firearms. These weapons were part of the arsenal of the Royal Nepalese Gurkha Army, and had been sealed away in the Lagan Silekhana Palace since 1839. He has published a book and made a DVD documentary about this, titled Treasure is Where You Find It.
