not intending to display with weapon, :wink: what type of pistols would have been issued to us troops, what kind of access would troops have to other pistols? non issue.
what woud be a fitting pistol to add to a small us ww2 collection? (alreday have 1911bF, which of course rarely sees the light of day as cant display with it only being a PFC :P )
maybe something german that woud have been easliy aquired?
sorry about all the questions, have limited knowledge on the subject.

Goose i paid a £100 for mine...but be careful...there are right and wrong ones out there especially if you are portraying a US soldier armed with one.

Regards

Lloyd

Who exactly used the Victory model during WWII?

I know it was used by the Navy (I've seen a good few photos of pilots with them), was it also used by the USMC, especially ground troops?

Does anyone have any good photos of the Victory model in use during WWII (any branch of service)?

I've been looking to get one of these, what is the difference between the 'victory' model and the M1917 .445 model?

The victory Model was issued extensively to British & Commonwealth forces throughout WWII.
These were cambered for the British .38/200 round although by WWII this used a 174 grain FMJ bullet.

Very nice revolver. I owned a 'shooter' for many years & shot is very successfully in competition. :wink:

As regards American forces use of the .38 Victory Model, I'm afraid I can't help you. :(

Cheers, :D
Chris.
