The rule in collecting is to buy the gun not the story. There is a world of difference between a story and provenance. Provenance has to do with documents, factory letters and the like. Solid stuff. These things have been faked. I cannot count the number of import marked or otherwise butchered P-38's that were taken from an SS Colonels by the deceased grandfather etc. etc.

Mini-rant:It hurts to see the nice matching WW2 98's who have "sporterized" and "re-did" by Bubba Stock hacked up.

The allies allowed the Russians to take Berlin. Check the number of men the Russians lost in the assault. Not an act of generosity I'd say. on the part of the allies.
