7.92x57mm

More commonly known as 8mm Mauser. The ones in the picture are Turkish. You can see the “sickle & star” emblem on the headstamp in the third picture. Most of the surplus 8mm Mauser supply has dried up since very few if any nations still use the caliber for their military.

H&K MP5K Briefcase
This was designed and sold by H&K with the intended market being special security services. The trigger is visible in the briefcase’s handle which actuates the mechanism to pull the MP5K’s trigger. A large cache of these were found in Iraq but I don’t know what happened with them. Either destroyed or sold off to security contractors.

“Shows cartoon of a Samoan maiden leaning on the shoulder of a New Zealand soldier on a Samoan beach. A German lolls on a hammock in the right background, and says: ‘You can have her an velcom but hurry up mit der trade’.
This refers to the New Zealand occupation of German Samoa in 1914, and to the impression that German business interests did not mind, so long as their trade links were not affected.”

I think Hitler did some great things for the world. I do not agree with what he did, but I do give him recognition for what he did.






So many great things that nobody can think of even one!
