just a few months ago a woman in New Jersey brought in an "old broken rifle" her late husband had to one of those gun buy backs. the police immediately recognized it as a German STG 44. they told her it was worth several thousand dollars even in the rough condition it was in. They told her if she wanted to get rid of it, have a gunsmith restore it & sell it for her, it would be worth a hell of a lot more than the $100 gift card she would've got.
