A buddy of mine sent me the following video (done by Forgotten Weapons) a couple of days ago of a WWII-era last ditch pistol supposedly built for the Schutzstaffel. “Supposedly” I say because there aren’t really any good records confirming it’s commissioning (and as you would imagine a number of clones popped up afterwards). In any case, the video does a great job of showing the mechanics of the four shot .22 rimfire.
This particular item went up for auction in September this year and was projected to go for $6,500 to $11,000.
What do you readers think? Authentic or not? What do you think of the mechanism and design?
