(Pre98 Antiques) I was recently outbid on a Radom just like this one. Its on my top 5 list of bringback guns I need for my collection.

Vis wz. 35 - not Radom.

 

Radom is only the city where Vis wz. 35s were manufactured.

I've had this PPK for quite a few years.

 

Very nice PPK. Have you researched your vet who possibly served in the 995th Field Artillery Battalion?

 

Here is a link to a soldier in that outfit and the pictures he took during the war: http://lonesentry.com/S2/index.html

Thanks for sharing Major! I used to have one in my collection. It was brought home by a co-worker who actually killed the VC. I needed money and sold it back to him and that is a big regret.

This VG1 was taken out of the factory at the end of the war. This picture shows a rack of completed rifles in the background along with a box of magazines & uncompleted rifles under the table. The G.I. brought home two of them after touring the captured factory.

Thats cool! What kind of rifle is that?

The picture shown is the Walter factory in Zella Mehlis captured by the 11th Arm'd Div. and soldier pictured is 1st Sgt. George A. Band of Phoenix Az.  It's from the 11th history "Thunderbolt", this was my father unit and they took a stack of 22 rifles and guys sent them home.

Did your father send/bring anything home for the factory?
