    Russian Capture pistols and MG's

    As many people know,the Russian's captured hundreds of thousands of arms during and at the end of WW2.

    Many of them were sent as "aid" to insurgent groups around the globe.This days they are actually for sale on the open market,however the prices are sky high even before they are exported.

    The Russian Army is planning on building a type of Cathedral/Spiritual headquarters for is military.The Steps of which are going to be made from Smelted Small Arms.

    Here is a video of what they are going to be using.

    the lugers and what looked like a MG42 would be a bit of a waste to be melted down.

    The Russians, understandably, probably see it quite differently.

    I think you'll find they will use the poor examples for steps and sell off the rest. Maybe even throw a Lada or two in the pot.

    From just the small sample they showed they look to be in mint condition... I would love a 1939 Luger... Just imagine what's in the rest of those crates!

    I'd be like a kid in a candy shop

    Seems a bit silly to smelt them down now,when they have been stored for long they are now collectible arms and worth good money on the open market.

    I suppose the STG 44/ 45's found in Syria where just there on holiday ????:
    Sadly the reality is that the only real market for these firearms is the US and the chances of them ending up there are , zero to nothing .

    Syria
    Russia was invited into Syria - by the Syrian Government - not like a few other countries that imposed themselves there illegally

    @Tankd @Sarvo can you just agree to disagree..

    Seems a shame to see them go. At least they will have a use better than going through the gas axes and dropped in a landfill I.e. Nz seized firearms

    Where do you think the following groups got their deniable mg42's,34's STG44's and K98s?
    PLO
    SWAPO
    PLAN
    ANC
    SACP
    & The Veitcong

    Why not look into things yourself before you get your red crayon out?
