    Three wounded items from a fellow member. The left cup has the projectile splinter still stuck in it, the one on the right has three layers of paint: originally grey, then green and in the end black.

    Feel free to copy the images and re-post them to your thead! The story of that pistol is as follows: during the WWII a German unit stopped in my grand-grandparents' farm for a short period in 1941. They also had sort of warehouse for weapons, light ammo and field equipment in the nearby barn. My granddad was 13 years old and stealed a lot of different stuff from that barn. In 1944, when German troops retreated through Estonia after the heavy battles in Narva/Tannenberg Line front, many soldiers throwed their gear and weapons away. That was like boys' paradise, of course. My granpa had so many weapons back then, that he had to bury most of them. There were both German and Soviet "pipes" included, beginning with pistols and ammo boxes and ending with some MG's. 20 years ago he took me to the forest, which used to be his father's farm in the days of WW, but as the landscapes were totally changed, it was impossible to spot the "mass-graves" of weapons. All we found was a zink box of Russian ammo. Less then 10 years ago we went back, hoping to find something with my powerful metal detector. We found nothing. My granpa passed away about 5 years ago. After the funeral my aunt told me, that granpa had at least to handguns, but had them hidden. Few years ago I heard that granpa had given at least one gun away to his brother. I very much gave up hope.

    Then, last friday, during my wedding party my aunt gave me a packet. And there it was, a long lost Hi-Power! I don't know wheter it came from my granpas 41 or 44 "hunting days", but I'm very happy with it and it's history.
