Stolen firearms

We just received news via FESAC of a collection that was stolen last Friday in Belgium.

In the attached below you will find the list of stolen items.

Please spread the word and look out for any of these items: a reward of Euro 2,500 is offered for the person whose information leads to the retrieving of the collection and/or catching the thief.

Any information to myself or the secretary please.

Several P08 and P38 pistols are mentioned with only a brand and a serial number. That is not enough to uniquely identify a pistol. These were made in serial blocks of 10.000 for many years.

To properly identify a P08 or P38, the chamber/production year must be included.

Otherwise there is a good chance that pistols with the same serial number might wrongfully be identified as stolen.

So caution is advised when a P08 or P38 with an identical serial number is found.
