Late War Vis Radom

This is one of my favorite Mil-Surp guns. Vis Radom from 1944..non import bring back with original period holster. It gets some range time but not a lot as I have my duty Sig P226 in 9mm to play with. Since I'm new here I'll be posting in different categories..kinda wish there were more sub-forums such as mil-surp as I have some neat stuff that I've accumulated over the years. Here's the Vis Radom. Rich

That's a nice pistol!

Don't worry about the categories. Since this is a small forum, just post'em, and we'll see'em alright.

You have to watch those Hitler youth knives, most are cheap copies. I've seen a few that claimed they were made from genuine blades found in a warehouse after the war, so just the handles and scabbards were repro. I had one in high school that I gave five bucks for at a flea market. The guy had at least a hundred of them. Actually had a decent blade.

Yep, There a lot of fakes out there. This one came from my uncle and is a bring back from WWII. My cousins had first shot at it but had a thing about anything connected to Hitler or the Nazi party. It has been sharpened a number of times and it shows. To me it's a piece of history that never should be forgotten. I have my father in law's Bronze Star plus some other artifacts from the past. Here's a couple of pics.

I had that same German knife, that my Dad gave me. His Uncle, who was in the Battle of the Bulge, gave it to him.
But, my little brother snuck it out of my room for show and tell at school, and someone stole it.
