    A Kegger and a MP 40 would be an awesome find. Somebody buried their 2 favorite items they were hoping to return to!!!

    So It sounds like they are speaking Russian, Where exactly was this MP44 found?

    I sure hope she was convinced otherwise. It can be done. It has been done.

    Amazing find - that STG was ready to go to the range with two loaded mags too.

    The other STG mentioned - the one found in the US, was saved from destruction by a cop who reqognized it, for what it was - a nice story.

    Thank god! Sometimes the department heads are such tight arses that they won't allow any weapons turned in to be saved. A damn shame. I've heard of cops convincing people to change their minds and sell it to the cop at a later time.

    A range off possibilities here. Perhaps it was hidden for:

    *Anti-communist activities post-war
    *Something happened in the heat of battle that required it to be stowed
    *The owner was a nazi or sympathizer and wanted protection from nazi hunters
    *A Wehrmacht soldier concealing his identity and just wanting to put his life back together postwar


    We will probably never know!

    .....or simply something as mundane as a rifle picked up and stowed by a local, after its previous owner dropped it and hastily departed for a more healthy climate westwards (or just simply dropped it).

    Plenty of pick-ups in the havoc, that was the ever diminishing Eastern Front.

    But as you say; we most likely will never know.
