    Default Himlers personal MP 40?

    This MP 40 turned up in a deceased estate in New Zealand. With Gold embellishments,this gun is now going to auction,all the family knows it was bought in England in the 1970s for big money. Anyone who may know any history on this please reply

    Pretty simple - can't be original, since the person who engraved it couldn't speak German. It would read "Meine Ehre heißt Treue" and not "Meine Ehre heisst Treue". The "ß" is a German letter and replacing it with double S is incorrect. If presented to a high rank person with engravings at this class one can assume they would be able to not make typos...

    Would go perfectly with this one.



    Two beautiful parade weapons. Just not sure for what kind of parade. Gay pride?

    Great point. NO WAY that would have passed muster. If it was real, think how many big shots would have eyeballed it before it was presented. The chief armorer, the shop boss all the way up.
