    Very nice looking Drilling.... but its past owner, makes it, to me, a piece of junk. Now...if the cockroach would have used it on himself....

    Whether Adolf ever owned a drilling or not, he would never have used it. He was an animal lover and didn't believe in killing and slaughter of helpless creatures (animals, that is, humans being a different story). I think he was the founder or at least the inspiration for PETA.

    Because we all blame inanimate objects for its owner's actions :rolleyes:

    Odds that it belonged to Hitler? Probably 1 in a million.

    poor assumption cracked b. No blame on anything....just picky about the company and things I like...you pick your toys, I'll pick mine. Calling the odds of ownership... valueless.

    It's worth whatever someone will pay for it.

    As you can see from the replies, some would not want it at all if it was owned by Hitler. I'm sure there are people out there that would pay many Thousands of dollars for it if it was owned by him.

    To each his/her own

    Some Aryan Brotherhood Head will pay much drug dinero for that, probably, as if one of them would even know what it was....

    History Channel recently featured "Million Dollar Guns" showing a Walther supposedly owned by Hitler. The Walther's engraved initials (AH) were similar to those in the photos below. Good chance it was presented to him as speculated.

    Wonder if a GI brought this home after the war and was acquired from an estate.

    Good or evil history, if it is genuine, it is a historical piece and has value to someone, and it doesn't necessarily have value only to those that believed in his ideals.

    Honestly, I wouldn't mind having it.

    While it would take a little time to wash the stink off of it, assuming it was Hitler's, the chances of it being Hitler's are fairly small. It could be Adam Herrington's, or Al Hoevel's. It need not belong to a megalomaniac. It could have actually belonged to anybody.

    Regardless, it is most likely a very finely crafted firearm. Most of us will never, ever own a drilling. These are true works of art, and I would like to have one.

    Of course, if I were to find out that it were Hitler's, I am fairly certain that I would use it to repeatedly shoot an effigy of the slimy bastard every single day. Somehow, it seems fitting.

    Hmmm... Hitler's drilling? From WW2 footage I've seen, that would be the goose-step, no?

    Crap-ola!

    Here I thought I had the only Krieghoff drilling presented to The Fuehrer. Darn. That about takes the value of mine down a notch or two, doesn't it?

    Anybody wanna buy an engraved 7.65mm Walther PPK? It was only used once... :D

    Tell you what. I hate to see a fellow member stuck with a piece of crap. Send it to me and I will wire you $1000.00. Seriously get it appraised by 2-3 GUN EXPERTS. You just won the lotto friend.

    I personally have no interest in anything that belonged to Hitler or any of his cronies.The gun is an inanimate object,I agree.But it is just not my thing.Now,George Patton's Smith and Wesson,that would be something else ,indeed.

    I see your point, but isn't this the same idea as GW who now has Sadam's Makarov or all the GI's who take the pistols off of enemy soldiers?

    As I said,that is just me personally.If POTUS wants Saddam's makarov,I don't care.As fr as a soldier taking a pistol from an enemy soldier,that is a different story.My uncle,during the war in Europe,has a small collection of items,medals,daggers and such,that he took from dead Germans.He explained that it was a memento of a worthy enemy,but he considered Hitler a piece of crap and a mass murderer,just like Eichman and Himmler,Heydrich and the rest of the Nazi higher ups.They never put anything on the line.Just my 2 cents.

    We have a Winner!

    Some people laughed at me when I predicted those NIB M1's that CMP had should go for $7500, and they cleared $10,000.

    If you are interested in this weapon make your bid based on it being a nice fire arm not the fact it was once in the possession of a world class moron like Hitler.
    The gun is not responsible for the actions of the owner and if it meets your tastes buy away as long as you can be certain that none of the proceeds will go to an old Nazis estate. No since in furthering Der Fuhrer's followers by giving them anything.

    Think it over do your research and make sure,

    If it DID belong to the old boy, there is certainly no mention of it in any of the historical records I have seen. Even David Irving is silent on the subject!! The only documented weapon AH ever owned was the PP he used to shoot himself with!!

    Until somebody authenticates it, it might as well belong to Albert Hauserhoff!!!!

    Another more interesting speculation, I think, would be Adolf's P38!! He was responsible for Walther getting the contract. You would think they would have given him one!!

    Interestingly, I am takeing a class this summer called "Hitlers Germany", so this is a subject that i am familiar with. First off,
    is not true. Hitler was, in fact, a vegetarian, and he did pass a law banning vivisection, because he thought it was cruel, but PETA is not affiliated with Hitler in any way. I hate PETA, and I wish they were so I had another reason to hate them, but sadly, they aren't. As far as the value of that gun, the fact is that if it was proved that it was Hitlers, which would be exceedingly difficult, it would probably only add about 10 to 15% to whatever value it has now. So many things have been touted as being Hitlers, and so many of those things are impossible to prove, thus making the market for Hitler stuff pretty thin.

    I have Adolf Hitler's personal Glock 19. I know it's his, because this one was made in Austria and will have (I mean had...) the intials AH scratched into the slide.

    Will provide nice photoshopped picture of Hitler holding the Glock while screwing a wig wearing pig.

    All this for the low price of $500,000 dollars.

    Pretty cheap if you ask me for a geniune imitation Adolf Hitler's personal Glock.
