Here's a Astra 600/43 made for Nazi Germany in 1945 (SN: 272XX). Delivery was cut off by Allied troops being in France and Italy. Guns were put in storage by Spain and then the West German government asked about them in 1951 to rearm its police force. Germany had to repay for them after being reminded that the Nazi government paid them and not the Bundes government. Guns were then resold later and some how made its way to Iraq. Pistol is in 9x19mm with a 8 rd magazine, single action, striker fired, manual safety that is also the slide lock, and has both grip and magazine disconnect.

Wow, that's an interesting piece. I especially liked the part about how the Germans had to buy it twice

Sucks you can't bring it home....

Our GIs should be allowed to bring back War Trophies.

I wish that we could bring home stuff. I would have quite a large collection by now.

It's a shame to see it go to waste.

Is there any way you can give it to coalition troops from another country (maybe one of the other NATO-country troops) who might have better laws about taking it to their country?

Is it pretty much impossible for military in iraq to bring back "treasures" to the us? It would be badass if someone got a hold of those Glock 19's that are for the iraqi police.

I had a savage pistol that looked very similar. It KB'd on me and I sold it all locked up.

Our Gov't should be selling them on EE to help pay for the War on Terror.
