and turned over to be demilled. Sad day to see these beauties surrendered and neutered when the French may need them the most.

Fascinating stuff, would love to handle those. Reminds me of a youtuber (can't remember the name) who goes round with a metal detector pulling loads of WW2 arms straight out of the ground in the forests of Germany etc. The guy literally pulls out 5 or 6 MP40s etc in some vids - just left abandoned by the soldiers. Of course unlike the collection there it's always basically gun shaped blobs of rust at this point.

Cool find. Sten guns were crude, cheap and effective (inside 100 yards that is).

You could build Sten MKV's from parts kits. Just had to have a new tube milled and some minor welding to fab them up. More of a novelty than anything. I knew a guy that only brought his out on July 4th and New Year's Eve. whistling

Kind of off topic, but my grandfather was in the Pacific theatre during WWII. When the Japanese surrendered they raided a Japanese warehouse and all grabbed a bunch of cool stuff to bring home.

Grandpa brought home a M1 rifle with folding stock, several old pistols(one of which was apparently taken from a US soldier during WWI and possibly sold to the Japanese). He also pulled a Kamikaze sword out of the chest of a Kamikaze pilot that had crashed into his Destroyer. I used to get out WWII documentaries and make him tell me every story he could remember, over and over. Good times, I miss it.

The French designed the first oscillating turret tank and it had 14 gears- 13 for going in reverse and 1 for going forward....

European people do not really need any handguns.
