Unusual papered GI bring back!


Recommended Posts

I found this unusual GI bring back and just received it today. Its a handmade Belgian 44-40 revolver brought back by GI Daniel R. Ely serial number 35932174. So far not much info showing up on the web. Enjoy my latest acquisition! Bought it from Matt of Axis Arms. I wish he had more papered bring backs to buy. Here is the full ad:https://axisarmsonline.com/product/antique-belgian-revolver-wwii-bringback-capture-papers/
