Hi gang,
New to the forums and thought I'd ask about a gun my Grandfather brought home from WWII. I have no intentions of selling it but would like to know the value if possible. It was a German Officer's gun and he got it in Belgium I believe though it might have been Austria. I never did ask him too many details about exactly how he got the gun but i think i have an idea but I'll confirm where exactly he got it. On the gun are two very clear Nazi symbols (the eagle and the swastika) as well as two other symbols that include the letters WBA140 and there looks to be the Eagle again. From my research, the gun is an FM Model 1922 or 1910/1922. It has a longer barrel and can hold 7 rounds versus the standard 5 in the 1910 and is a .32 cal. Before he came back to the states at the end of the war, he had it silver plated and it sat in his closet for 40 plus years until he gave it to me a few years ago. I'm only 38 years old but have always been very interested in WWII because of my Grandfather. The gun has 2 magazines and the leather holster that it was being worn in as well as the cloth the holster/gun was wrapped in for transport stateside and the US Army bag he had them in with his name on it. I tried taking pictures of the Nazi symbols but they're too small for any good pictures. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thank you all in advance. Regards,

Jay Faro
