    Not that surprising, Hitler shot himself with a Walther PPK.

    And we thought James Bond was the most famous PPK user.....

    It's most likely either:

    1. Buried in the dirt under an apartment block or parking lot in Berlin
    2. Ended up being taken home by a solider, and now sitting in the attic of a grandpa's house. No one has any idea what it actually is, other than it is "something grandpa brought back from the war" .

    Even if somebody came forward and claimed this is "thee gun" that killed Hitler..how do you prove it???..the serial number???...fingerprints from 75 years ago?? forensic testing of the barrel to match up with the missing bullet???..a unknown film of the event???..most likely we will never know...interesting topic.

    Finland sold really bad wrecks of Stugs some 10years ago and got about 400,000 euros per tank. I guess he rebuilt them. But what a price for old wrecks. The buyer was from the US.

    Gotta be some still buried in bogs or rivers throughout Europe...impossible to come across a "barn find" as it's hard to hide a 20 ton tank from your neighbors.
