    Default Holy Grail Gun - French MAC M1950 vet bring back from Nam!

    I was shocked to see this for sale at my local gun show. A dealer friend of mine noticed it during Friday set-up so I was there when the doors opened Saturday at 9am. I have only seen a handful of Nam bringback MAC's in collections since I've been searching for one. The dealer I bought it from got it directly from the vet so I hope to get some info on how it was captured. A member of another forum is researching the vet and I hope she comes up with something interesting. Captain Gerald Thompson was a MACV advisor and was on Team Maryland.

    Interesting. Never seen or heard about this pistol before.

    So French made, captured by the VN and then recaptured by the US?
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    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

    Thanks Larry! After I bought the gun, I was walking around the show in a daze and one of the female vendors looked at me and said, " You look liked you found something you have been looking for?"
