    Yes this has been a scam for decades? I have one I got years ago for dirt cheap. I've even fired mine. Oh and mine doesn't have the fake waffenamts that seem so prevalent on these.

    How would one recognize the genuine article?

    Secondary recoil lug is an absolute dead giveaway that the gun is NOT WW2 German Modified

    Many people don't like talking about specifics because SO many were being faked. It was how to turn a sub $100 gun into a money maker. The gun itself is not fake as they were converted post-war to arm Arabs desperately looking for arms. The faking is the adding of Nazi stamps (or just story) to try and enhance their value. Here's a decent thread about them from Gunboards. There are others as well. The Star B pistols got faked the funk out too. Not real Nazi (the faked ones) but seller still trying to claim they were.
