Just thought you may like to see it cost a fortune to build, but well worth it!

I think that the Bergmann is a lovely weapon which is not seen
enough in reenactment. The wehrmacht disgarded the weapon
in the 30s and the entire stock went over to the Waffen-SS.

It can be seen in a lot of the early Blitzkrieg photos along with the
M96 pistol with that lovely wooden holster and stock.

I built a PPSh back in 1980, which I used for early reenactment.
I have re-painted it for Beltring next week, the butt is 3 inches
too short due to the fact that I used an old air rifle stock.

Cheers, Bill.

In the chaos of battle, when the ground beneath your feet is a slurry of blood, puke, p**s and the entrails of friends and enemies alike, it's easy to turn to the gods for salvation. But it's soldiers who do the fighting, and soldiers who do the dying, and the gods never get their feet wet.
