We captured Polish M44 carbines by the hundreds. Most were new in the crate. They mounted one in our battalion mess hall on a presentation plaque.
Very possible. We were there early, and weren't allowed to take any trophies but field gear etc. Had [email protected] MPs search us. But I heard following units like the 505 and marines were allowed to file paperwork on the bolt actions and vz52s.Didn't know that. Picked up a "new" '55 Polish M44 recently with no import marks, wonder if it was a bringback from Grenada.
