My friend (French) lives near Omaha Beach and does relic hunting there and other locations. He has sent me some relics (no weapons) dug in the Falaise areas of German retreat. He and his friends also do U.S. paratrooper reenactments during their annual D-Day celebrations.

Looks to be a loaded Luger, based upon the mag button being near the bottom. Mag bottom is gone though. Wonder if there is a round in the chamber?
