Vet bring back pistols


Pete-o MSU

Recommended Posts

I run local ads and this was the first living WWII vet I bought items from. He was a 95th division soldier. As he told it he got the P38 AC41 off a German who "certainly was not alive" and the Mauser HSc from a nice house in A city he couldn't remember along with a bottle of cognac (which he still had, empty though of course). The Walther has a matching holster and spare magazine.

 

I bought the guns on two separate trips. My parents met him the first time since I was in school 300 miles away and I told them get a picture of him with the guns and this is what I got...

 

Thanks for your service Mr Crippin

 

Pete

I that's a magazine. ;)

 

Nice find!

The paint stripping of M1 helmets, particularly protestor helmets, is destruction of history by the very men who claim to protect it.
Always looking for gear and items linked to the following: Joe S. Tamura US Army; Ken Tamura 442nd RCT; Capt. Emerson US Army Medical Corps, Norman Albert Wells Fifth Infantry Division

Nice pistols. I am getting a Luger with the original holster that my Great uncle somehow got during WW2 ( He was a corpsman in the USMC) or could have been from another relative who served in WW2 when I graduate. Only 2 more years!!!!!

Always looking for WW2 USMC militaria and WW2 Corpsman militaria. If you have any you don't want or want to sell let me know, I might be interested.

Very Nice

 

Early P38s are tough to find.

and a PPK Mauser just like the one pictured. :)

That is a Mauser HSc. Though it does superficially resemble the PPK, it is quite a different gun.
