    I'm sure we all know shopping on Gunbroker can be like walking through a dog run but every now and again you come across someone so blatantly spreading manure that it becomes funny. Check this one out

    That looks pretty good to me. With the hand carved swastika and the lick and stick SS sticker. Germans were pretty well known for those.

    I admired the unique use of the US Army Marksman medal glued to the stocke.

    Wow, that's quite the find. That's nothing though, I got Hitler's personal Glock. Got for a steal at only $4,000! :p

    its actually a little known fact that Heydrich trained at Fort Benning during the first years of the war.

    Pshaw. That POC pales into total obscurity when compared with my matching pair [a left and a right] of P08 Luger pistols belonging to your first president, General George Washington. Even the grips, made of cherry wood, are ultra significant in themselves as they were made from the actual tree that he admitted chopping down. I even have a signed photograph of him shooting them.

    Even these are secondary in my little collection when compared with Ben Franklin's very own Colt .45 SA, complete with charred grips from carrying it as he did his famous experiment with the kite in the thunderstorm.

    Heydrich?

    Hah. Some folks will just believe any old thing they read on the internet.

    The sad part is he is up to $525 on this. At least the people who alter Italian repros are attempting to create something believable.

    :s0140: We all know someone is going to buy that. This is why con men can get rich.

    Maybe the seller knows that Nigerian fella that sent me an email regarding some money from overseas.

    Hmmmm

    6 bids and it didn't make reserve. Yoyo now has it relisted with a starting bid of $999 and a Buy Now price of $1700. He's got to make back his investment on Mauser stickers and the time carving on it. :rolleyes:

    You have to admire the seller, if only for parting with a significant historic artifact

    Looks like he's done substantial editing to his description this time around. Now he says it was possibly put together as a tribute to Heydrich. I think he must have been on this site and reading your comments. :cool:

    I'm thinking that he also mistook the Army Marksman medal for an Iron Cross.
