I have a strong interest in papered bring backs and I know there are others who collect the same. I thought it would be interesting to see examples from everyone's collection. Here is my Walther Model 4 from Sergeant Steelman who served in the 100th Division 399th Infantry "C" Company.

Found some bringbacks sold by Pre98 Vintage Military & Collectable Firearms. With their permission I am posting some photos of their sold guns. I wonder if any members of this form own some of these cool guns? Nambu type 94 bringback.
