Police in Connecticut were surprised to see a gun like the weapon pictured show up at their recent gun buyback.

The weapon is a German, WW2 era rifle valued between $20,000 – 40,000

Police are allowing the owner to take back possession of the gun.

It looks like an StG 44 to us. If so, there could be some legal issues if the gun was not properly registered prior to 1986. There could also be Connecticut state law issues with the weapon as well.

Regardless of what ends up happening to the weapon, at least the officers aren’t destroying it, as is happening with the other firearms from the buyback.
