    Sounds like the pistol was pilfered.

The collector I bought it from I've bought rifles from in the past his stuff is usually top notch and in really good condition. Here's a quote from his listing "All as found in a WWII Vet's closet before he passed Never changed any parts" I really don't care how the old guy got it it's mine now and it's nice LOL
    So it did or didn't come with War trophy documents?

    Now I'm really confused...
    No participation trophies 'round here...

    If you're asking if I have the original owners war trophy papers (if they exist) for the rifle I posted the answer is no I bought it from another collector. I thought your original question was you were trying to find out what people mean by "Vet Bring Back" firearms which is why I posted the link to the info. I thought covered it but as others have said that's probably not the case for US issued firearms and if that's true than the original owner who was a WWII Vet per the info in the ads description where I got it probably just purchased it after the war somewhere just like I did. Not sure where all the confusion came into play unless it was my poor wording of my original post.

    LOL I guess I was the one confused my response in that post was trying to explain my opinion of what a "Vet bring back" is. in answer to your original question which was

    "So it's stolen US property?

    I've never understood the "vet bring back" when it's a US issued weapon.

    I'm seriously asking here.
    Was it really stolen or was it actually purchased at some point by said vet?"


    Not a big deal I'm thinking some came back with papers and other were just sold off as military surplus. I'm under the impression that when I see Vet Bring Back it means that it was one that was sent home by said Vet with the proper paperwork.

    I have documents that my Dad got from the military for items he brought back from when he was in WWII but none of the items were US issued firearms just foreign military items like swords, a cool pocket watch, a pair of pearl handle derringers and some other misc stuff.

    Just ordered a barrel blank from Lilja for my Mk13 Mod 2 project. 27" 30-caliber stainless steel in their tactical contour, with 4 grooves and a 1:10 twist rate. 12 weeks of lead time, and once I have the blank I'll be shipping both the barrel blank and my new Remington 700 in 300 Winchester Magnum to Alan Brown to be converted into the Mk13 Mod 2. And if I'm lucky, I'll have it back in my possession this time next year.

    If you ever thought about a new chevy truck, there's some amazing incentives going on til the end of the month on some trim levels. Enough that it encouraged me to trade in my 2007 with 160k mi.

    I went to look at a used 2014 LTZ with 40k mi. Found the frame was rusted to heck underneath. Then stopped in to browse new and found the LT all-star trim level selling new for just about the same price as the used one I first looked at.
