    The German man who ripped the head off of the wax Hitler was behaving in a very German way. Modern Germans are very aware of what their forbears did, and most of them feel very guilty about it. "No more war!" is an expression of that guilt, and also of a very German desire that such things should never happen again.
    Contrast that with the refusal of the Japanese government to acknowledge the barbaric excesses committed by their troops during the same period. Current Japanese schoolbooks actually portray Japan as the victim of WW2!
    Contrast it, also, to the behavior of Kofi Annan and the UN in the matter of the Rwanda massacre. The UN still has neither acknowledged, nor apologized for, Annan's refusal to act to keep the murders from happening, in the face of repeated warnings from the UN "peacekeeper" commanding officer who was on-scene at the time.

I mean, how can you know that didn't happen? Would it make a difference in your investment (as you put it)?
    I personally have no interest in Nazi labeled anything, but would be unmoved by your arguement above. Rather, if a firearm (or part thereof) was used in a repugnant way, I'd have little issue with the firearm. It's just a tool; as "good" or as "bad" as the person employing it.

    The Nazi insignia would be an issue for me however. I'd not want to imply any sympathy for the ideals represented by it.

    Talking Anti-Hitler Joke

    Adolf Hitler is speeding through Germany with his chauffeur at the wheel on his way to an important address.

    Driving down a country road, the chauffeur (who is distracted, looking out the window at the countryside) doesn't see a pig walk out onto the road, and he hits it with the car.

    Stopping the car, he jumps out, and Adolf climbs out also to see what is going on. The chauffeur, very distressed by what he's done asks Hitler what they should do, and Hitler tells him impatiently that they're in a hurry and they should move the pig to the side of the road and go to the address and worry about it later.

    All the way to the address the chauffeur, who is a fairly good-hearted person despite his employer, is worried about the family who owned the pig and wondered how they'd react to discovering the pig, so when they arrived he asked Hitler whether he shouldn't drive back to the farm and let them know what happened.

    Hitler agrees before hurrying to the podium, and the Chauffeur hurries back down the road.

    Four hours later, stumbling down the road, his arms full of sausage and bread and his breath smelling of liquor.

    Hitler in a rage demands to know what has happened to him, and the chauffeur explains, "I did what I thought was right. I went to the farm where I killed the pig. When I went and knocked on the door and gave them the news, they gave me this sausage and bread, fed me the best ale I've ever tasted and let me have their way with their beautiful nubile young daughter and then sent me on my way."

    Adolf seemed confused by this and asks his chauffeur, "well what exactly did you tell them?"

    To which the chauffeur replied, "I really can't understand it either, all I did was tell them "I'm Hitler's Chauffeur, and I killed the pig."

    Here's an actual WW2-era, German joke that got wide circulation in about 1943-44:

    Hitler, Himmler, Göring, and Göbbels were flying together to a Nazi rally in Nüremberg.
    The plane crashed.
    Who was saved?

    Answer: The German people.

    (If we're gonna hijack a thread, let's do it right!)

    I think there may be a little over-reaction here. I see all kinds of weapons on Gunbroker and other sites with German/Nazi proof stamps commanding higher $$ than those without. I just don't see all the hate over a pair of grips? Tell me why one is OK and the other is not?
