    Thats just it! No one is quite sure. It shoots 22 short ammo, and it is claimed to belong to an SS officer. Im having believing that, and I thought i might post it incase anyone here has an idea.

    There are some who like to think that these kinds of buckles are exceedingly rare original pieces, but for me they are not. They are a postwar fantasy item. Luftwaffe buckle included in the box but SS markings on the weapon?

    Even though I don't believe they are wartime made, they are of interest in and of themselves. For me they speak volumes about the collecting of TR items and the history of the hobby.

    I remember these so-called SS "Belly Guns" being talked about almost 40 years ago. I think the article was in an issue of "Guns and Ammo". Even back then, they were determined to be silly fakes. I recall one writer saying as to how he somehow couldn't picture a captured SS Officer in his cell fumbling around at his belt with a huge sized clumsy belt buckle and having no one notice. The 70's were just starting and the fake Nazi junk was Really beginning to pick up speed and come pouring out just then. Coincidentally, the "SS Belly Gun" was "uncovered" just about the same time....

    Seeing this goofy thing again sure brings back

    And, yes-they were supposed to be actually functional, but, if I recall right, there was only something like 2 of these things around known. Supposed to be "prototypes" or some such rubbish.
