As for what I paid...
Yeah 99% were just tossed in a bag and brought home. If you had Army paperwork marking it as a war trophy, it might bring a premium was the only reason I asked.
$400 is a very reasonable price, you didn't rip her off and you got a good deal. Probably paid her just a bit over what a gun shop would have bought it for. So everyone can be happy
Nice gun, enjoy it!
Oh one other question I just thought of! Does it have the magazine safety installed? (cock the hammer and without a magazine in the gun can you pull the trigger?)
I seem to remember something about them not having mag safety's latter in the war but could be wrong.
