    A rifle which had been used in several murders - an Czech VZ58 - was recently located.

    The Police had told victims families the rifle had been disposed of.


    It was on display in a museum.


    "Families were told that the VZ58 rifle had been officially "disposed of", but investigators from Northern Ireland's Police Ombudsman's team found the gun at the museum and have sent it for further tests."


    The victims families are claiming that the police, or some members of the police, were in on the murders, at least some of the attacks, hence the current investigation.

    Friend owns one of these in FA. They run and handle better than a FA AK.

    Nice gun,be a shame if it was destroyed:rolleyes:
    I sold a gun to a guy who later committed suicide with it.S&W Willey Clap custom shop model.Smooth trigger made it so he could pull the trigger as the others were too strong of pull.This had polished futes and such
    Can't judge.He was a large old man.Don't know how much pain he was in.
    Anyway,after we found out,the other guy at the shop says 'what happened to the gun? Gosh it was only shot once!'
    I mean if they cleaned it off soon enough
