Very nice and very lucky, Therewolf! Hang onto that one, or give me first crack at it if you wish to sell. . The Waffen Hi-Power is about the only one I still attempt to procure, but the prices are just too high. I like any gun that has a history like that, especially one that is so imminently shootable.

I was blessed with Inheriting many firearms from my Dad, and My Uncle, who was In addition to being an NYPD detective, also owned(half owned) a Guns/Sporting Goods/LE gear shop. as a Kid In the 60's I would go with him every weekend to the various Gun shows In Upstate & Western NY, Penn. and Some In Jersey. During the 1950's and 60's he obtained several "War Trophies" from their original liberators.

Absolutely gorgeous! I've never seen a camo one and I'd love to have it!
