Description:

Manufactured circa 1942-1945 as a "cheap" weapon to air drop en-masse in occupied territories and used by partisans and resistance members to make life interesting for the occupation troops. A single shot, smoothbore weapon, the overall idea was to kill a better-armed occupier via ambush and then take their equipment. This is a two-hole model, sheet metal construction with zinc cocking knob, hollow grip and sliding cover.

Rating Definition:

Very good plus, with thin finish remaining, some scattered brown spotting and handling marks. Mechanically excellent.
