Nazi 22 caliber belt buckle gun
Article about: And now for something completely different Rare Nazi 22 caliber belt buckle Rare Nazi Belt Buckle Pistol Chambered in .22 LR - Guns & Ammo Sorry, only a link. Working from a cell phone.
I remember that same article you are talking about William and it immediately came to mind when I read Michael's post. I also remember it not being so embellished. If they don't have something to write about, just pull something out of the way back machine. What the heck the old editor pasted away so the new guy never read the original article. LOL
I believe the original article was based on an SS buckle if I'm not mistaken but that has been many years ago.
First time i saw it was in a comic strip, Tintin back in the seventies, among several other TR secret weapons.
Always looking for Belgian Congo stuff!
I think it's a crock as well...but what is this "well documented" recorded evidence they are talking about.
My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

I too remember the original guns and ammo story on one 1976 or so as I bought a copy I think it was in .32 cal version I think Bob Lyons posted a cover of it somewhere in the headgear section as the original article had a SS officers visor displayed with the buckle gun have been reading about them for years don't know myself why no period pictures or appearing in period catalogs for one? timothy
I remember seeing something like this in a Sgt. Rock comic book in the 70's .
I saw one in the 70's in Paris, without the eagle, for us it was a "toy" for GI's, one souvenir.
Sadly not at all surprising today some sucker would fork out big bucks for one. Amazing some folks are so easily fooled and parted with their money.
Lebus, you're ok? Glad to hear you're still here ;-)
Read the moronic comments below the original story to get more info/insight on how these were actually used during the war, and during captures. It seems there is a lot I still don't know...
If they did, you'd been better off shooting yourself in the head with it, because you'd be missing most of a hand afterwards ;-)
