My father has had this for some time and said that the next time I came down to visit that he would pass it along to me. My grandfather, who served in WWII had brought this home. The story is that it belonged to another solider in the battalion who was messing around with it and fired it. The ricochet hit him and killed him. For some reason my grandfather ended up with it and brought it home to give to the soldiers family. The soldier's son called and asked if he could come get it but never showed. That was more than 20 years ago. Any idea what this gun is worth? To me, it is priceless and something I would never sell. I guess it is more of a curiousity thing than anything else, which is why I asked about value. I took it apart and cleaned it. It is in good shape for its age.
