Gorgeous Replicas of ViS wz. 35 in .45 ACP and wz. 38M

    Ian at the ForgottenWeapon’s Facebook page links to a highly skilled Polish gunsmith, Ryszard Tobys, who has made replicas of some of Poland’s more obscure and rare weapons; the .45 caliber ViS pistol (of which there may be no surviving examples), and the 8mm wz. 38M self-loading rifle.

    In my opinion, the wz. 38M is one of the prettiest, if not the prettiest of the selfloading rifles of the 1930s. Follow the link to see great high-resolution pictures of these beautiful firearms.
