This magnificently rusty Walther P-38 was found in the Ardennes region and has been there ever since the Battle of the Bulge, what a crazy discovery! The Walther P-38 would become the main issue German sidearm from 1943 till the end if the war in 1945. It replaced the P08 Lugar which had been used since WW1. It was durable, relatively light, accurate, and it packed a punch. Thousands were made throughout the war and prized by those who fought with them. Relics like these still lie undisturbed for over 70 years all over the battlefields of WW2. If you have the opportunity, I highly recommend you go and try to emerge you self in these past battlefields, that's one of my favorite things to do and the power of it is draw dropping. These relics are highly sought after all over the world and thousands go out everyday in search of them. Some, like @_historyhunter_ , are responsible and keep them for historical purposes. Others, steal them and sell them just for money, they are nicknamed "Black Diggers."
