    Thought I would address this individually, as it's a good question.

    An oversimplification - the SS organization was split in 1941 into the Waffen-SS and Allgemeine-SS. Those units associated with...

    Thank you for that, it's nice to know there are others. Must be uncommon as that is the only other reference I have seen for one like this. I'm surprised there isn't more written about these M1912...

    Steyr-Hahn with capture papers and holster

    Reposting this from the other section, I guess it's more suited to this one.

    Picked this up not too long ago, it's a bit different than most of these I see for sale as it is an 08 conversion but...
